Creative Card Kit Challange

The Creations In Paper May Creative Card Kit is now available to purchase.
I have set up a Pay Pal button on the post below, if you wish to purchase your own kit online rather than call into the shop, then this is the way to go!!

So today I thought I would set myself a challange, just to see how many cards I could make out of my May Creative Card Kit. (please see post below). As mentioned in my previous post, all you need to supply is your own card bases, stamps and inks, everything else is included in your Creative Card Kit.

So far I have made 12 cardsand I still have heaps of stuff left over to still make more. I think I can get at least another 5 cards.

My 12 Cards I made using various Stamps and Inks.

The second photo is of the May Creative Card Kit plus my 12 Cards I made.

Also, Creations In Paper Store will be opened everyday over the long week end. Call in and say Hi!

The Creative Card Kit is a monthly kit dedicated to bringing you the latest coordinating products on the market to make beautiful handmade projects for Cardmaking, Scrapbooking or Papercrafting.

Each Creative Card Kit includes enough coordinating patterned paper, cardstock, ribbons and embellishments to create at least 12 cards.

The first Creative Card Kit is filled with bright, fun colors inspired by the October Afternoon - Fly A Kite Collection. I have been a fan of October Afternoon Papers for a while now, but have found them a little hard to find! By getting the Creative Card Kit all the hardwork has been done for you, so you can start making cards!!

In the Fly A Kite Creative Card Kit, as well as the beautiful papers and coordinating cardstock in your kit you will recieve buttons, embellishments and 5 meters of ribbon. Plus 1 sheet of die cut Journalling Cards that coordinates with this collection.

Just add stamps,adhesives and card bases and you have everything you need to make at least 12 cards for just $20.00.

These kits are so easy and much fun to create with!

Please call into the Creation In Paper Store to get your Creative Card Kit or else I can pop one in the post for you (additional charge for postage).

Exciting News and a Magnolia Card

Here is another card I made a few weeks ago using one of my new Magnolia Tilda images. I have coloured her with Copic's and I remembered to write down what I used!!
I'm not happy with her shoes, still learning how to get the right shading and blending for these!!
In saying that, at the beginning of next month I am off to Sydney to learn how to colour in! Actually I have been accepted (I stalked them) to do a one-day training course arranged by X-Press Graph-X Supplies (Distributor of Copic Markers here in Australia) with 2 of the best in the business from the USA in a Copic Certification Class
Marianne Walker and Lori Craig

The Copic Certification program is designed for papercrafters, scrapbookers, and rubber stampers. This one-day intensive program is available for teachers, store owners, and designers who wish to learn diverse applications for Copic products with the intent of sharing them with their classes, stores, workshops, or through their designs. The class is technique based and no finished projects will be produced.

All of the training you receive as a Copic Certified designer is intended to be shared with others. Once you are a Copic Certified Designer you will be listed above through our Copic Certified Instructor Search. Here people will be able to search for Certified Designers in their area.

How exciting is that!! I cannot wait. So once I have completed the course (hopefully) I will be able to teach the correct techniques on how to use these great Markers!

Getting back to the card:

Items used to create my card:
Stamps: Magnolia Stamp Tilda with Three Flowers
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black
Copics: E50,E21,R20,E35,Y21,B91,B95,G07,G02,R32,C1,C3,C5,C7

Little Monsters...

Making cards for Boys and Men is always so hard. I suppose it is because you can't just add a flower, bling or ribbon just to finish it off.
Anyway, I've had this Sassafras Lass paper Monstrosities, that I got ages ago and I recently purchased the Monster Fun Stamp Set from Hero Arts.

I cut out all the images from the Monstrosities Framed sheet and then just using 2 other coordinating sheets of Pattern Paper from the same range and plain cardstock and my Nestabilities I made all of the cards below with very limited stamping on them.
I still have left overs to make more, but just wanted to show you some quick, easy and inexpensive cards for boys. These have been very popular!!


Where does the time go??

Last week we went to Perth for a wedding, which was beautiful. The bride, Jai looked stunning and the groom Chris, handsome. Bet, you've never been to a wedding where they had a Fireworks display!!

We were only away for 4 days, but right back into the swing of things and it doesn't even feel like I've been away!

This week has seen heaps of new goodies arriving at Creations In Paper:
Beautiful paper flowers - 3 different styles with 9 colours to choose from.
Japanese Papers - 5 designs and colours
Bling and Pearls
Graphic 45 Papers
Copic Blending Cardstock
Assorted Scrapbooking much more
Guess what just laded on my door step this morning from America??
More stamps from The Greeting Farm!!

The first order I placed was quite conservative, as I was curious to see if these stamps were going to be popular or not. Well, some of them sold out within the first week. Gotta be happy about that!

This next order I went a little crazy, so hopefully these will be just as popular.
I did a top up on some of the popular ones like Edward and Ruby, and then I just started putting stamps to my cart!! I have more of the original Anya range also.

I have attached photos below of all the new Greeting Farm Stamps, (in no order) so if there are any that you want, be sure to call in and see me at Creations In Paper to get your little images, before the sell out again!

Creations In Paper Advanced Class:

Bags, Bags and Bags... on this Sunday, the 18th April 10am - 4pm.
Cost for the day is $40.00 which includes all materials to make 3 stunning handmade bags.
You are required to supply your own basic tool kit with adhesives, scissors/paper trimmer, ruler (with inches), etc.

Magnolia Stamps

So another range of stamps I have recently started stocking are Magnolia Rubber Stamps. They are know as the sitting characters, and the range in which I am stocking is based around two main characters, Tilda and Edwin.
I'm sure you have seen them on many blogs as they are very popular. They are a beautiful stamp to use with a clean, crisp image. And great for colouring in with Copic's.

It used to be quite hard to try and find someone who stocked them here in Australia, but I have seen them popping up on a few online stores.
Recently they released there own Shabby Chic Paper Flowers which include heaps of styles and colours available: Vintage Roses, Orchids, Cherry Blossoms, Vintage Lily's, Gardenias. I don't have all of them but I do have quite a variety to choose from.
Magnolia have released there own magazine: Magnolia Ink Magazine.
This is a great magazine/book which it full of great ideas and tutorials.(I first stumbled across this at a newsagency in Maroochydore, but it was all too hard for them to tell me if they were going to stock it again!!)But I do have them in stock at Creations In Paper.

So with saying all of that, I have been going through a phase of making Easel Cards, I just love them. Easy to do once you get the hang of them, below is a Mother's Day card I made using one of my Magnolia Stamps.

Items used to create my card:
Stamps: Magnolia Stamp Sweet Tilda, SU Occassional Greetings
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black
Copics: E50,E21,R20,E30,E31,E33,C1,C3,C5,C7 (unsure of the rest as I coloured her a while a go)
Pattern Paper:Kaiser Craft (Blushed Range)
Cardstock: Pink Textured, White and Black Plain
Other: Cuttlebug and Nestabilities:Classic Circles and Scallop Circles
Other: Flowers: Prima (old ones I had at home for years) and Rub ons(??)

It is only a guess as to what Copic's I used as I didn't write them down, but I tend to use the same colours when colouring the Face and I have a few favourites for colouring the Hair.
This Anya stamp is great for colouring with your Copic's as she has lots of big hair!!

I hope you are all having a lovely Easter..take care
