Onstage April 2017 Swap - Hello Sweet Bunny


Hi Stampin' Friends!

If this is your first time visiting my blog 

Welcome - Hello & Thanks For Stopping By :)

I am rather excited to share with you my Hello Sweet Bunny Project I made
for Stampin' Up!'s Onstage Event.

And here he is ... isn't he just the cutest!!


To Make this you will Need -
Cardstock & Designer Series Paper of your choice
Layering Ovals Framelits 
Scallopped Tag Topper Punch & Duet Banner Punch
Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set
1/8" Ribbon or Thick Bakers Twine
Measurements/Assembly Instructions
7.5" long x 2" wide Cardstock
3 2/8 or 8cm x 2" wide Strip of Designer Series Paper 
Score Cardstock at 4 2/8" & 3 1/4"
adhere DSP next then use Scallop Punch to punch either end
lay flat on big shot and use 2nd smallest oval to cut single window for bunny
once this is done its just a matter of assembly, I used a couple of glue dots to hold back & front together while I tied the bow.  Stamp & Punch out your sentiment & adhere before gently placing your bunny in his new home!

This is such a sweet & quick project you could easily knock out multiples in a reasonably short amount of time great for kids classmate gifts for Easter & rather inexpensive also!

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Special Guest Mikaela Titheridge


Hi Stampin' Friends

Welcome and Thanks for joining us today - The Crazy Crafters are so blessed to hop with many International Guests on a regular basis and today we are very excited to welcome along to our hop Mikaela Titheridge.

Mikaela is from the UK and has recently clocked up her 5 year anniversary with Stampin' Up! Congrats Mikaela! 

The theme as always for our International Guest Hops is to choose a project previously created by our special guest and CASE it.  CASEing is a term used that quite simply means Copy And Selectively Edit - so take what you like from the original design and make it your own. It might be the stamp set - the colours, the layout, the flowers, whatever you like that has inspired you to make a card of your own. Here is my inspiration for today :)


This is such a great bundle, I hope that it makes it into the new 2017/18 Annual Catalogue as we don't have nearly enough male orientated stamp sets.  In saying that though I have gone girly and switched up my CASE to suit a female!


I have used Pop of Pink Specialty DSP along with the Nailed it Bundle and Hexagons Dynamic TIEF. I have also used Gold Wink of Stella to outline the hexagons & finished off with some gold bling Metallic Thread & Metallic Enamel Dots.

Butterfly Basics for Mojo Monday #489

Hi Stampin Friends

Just popping in today to share with you a card that was inspired by & entered into Mojo Monday #489 this is the first time I've entered this challenge so with any luck I have got it right.  A friend recently sent me a list of challenges worth looking into and I finally got around to checking them out.  I will be keeping an eye on a few and hopefully will be able to enter as time permits.

Here is my card for today


I have paired up Butterfly Thinlits & Bold Butterfly Framelits to make the Silver Glimmer Butterfly Opaque the DSP is from the Stampin' Up! Neutrals Stack and the sentiment is from Butterfly Basics.

Here is the banner for Mojo Monday that inspired my card

If you live in Australia and want to purchase any of the items I used you can shop with me by clicking on any of the images below.  Head over to Mojo Monday to play along with their challenges today!

Thanks for stopping by today
Happy Stamping!
