Valentine's Day ...

For Valentine's Day on Monday, Anthony gave me this beautiful bunch of flowers!

It was the first day that Creations in Paper opened our doors in Maroochydore, so with expecting my first day to be pretty quiet, so it was a nice suprise when the door opened and there was Anthony hand delivering me my beautiful flowers!!

Below is the card I made for him!

I hope you all had a lovely day..Jules

In Print..again

While I was grocery shopping last week I picked up a copy of the latest Cardmaking Stamping & Papercraft magazine. I am hopeless at knowing what the latest Volume or addition is and usually I just go by the images on the covers.

Anyway later on as I was flicking through it, I came across the other card that I sent in a few months ago to be published. I wasn't expecting this so it was certainly a nice suprise! So I was a little shocked to see it in the magazine!

My FREE copy, only arrrived on Friday in the post but better late than never!! Again it was published in the Readers Gallery and this was also a card that I taught ages ago in a class.

The stamp I've used is from Wild Rose Studio. I've stamped the image a few times on patteren paper and then cut out each layer of the dress and raised with foam dots to give it more a 3D effect. I've used this technique a few times on other stamps from Wild Rose Studio.

Craft Room Clean Up

So with having such a busy week in moving and cleaning mode we thought why stop at the shop!!
We have been saying for ages that we need to move a few things around at home but with me working 6 days it just hasn't happened!

So while I was having a lovely relaxing Sunday at home (first one in many, many months) this morning Anthony suggested that we do the move (I don't think he expected it to take as long as it did!!)

Since I have my own room Anthony wanted his own also.
We moved the main computer and larger desk into my craft room and then we are turing the study into Anthony's man cave!
I got a beautiful timber desk made for him last Christmas and this has been in the lounge room as he does a lot of work at home at night!
We moved this into the study and eventually he's getting a tv to go in there also. So now that we are all sorted we will probably never see each other!!

I took some before and after photos of my Craft room. Some of the lighting in the first few was really off, but you get the general idea! Hopefully with this room sorted now, maybe I will be inspired to actaully do some scrapbooking at home!!

I still have a few things to sort out but at least now I might come in here more often than I have over the past 12 months.


All set to go....the doors open Monday

What a difference a week can make!! It sure feels longer than a week!!

I am all moved out of Montville now and everything is set up and ready to go down at the new store in Maroochydore to open the doors tomorrow! (Monday 14th February)

I have just sent out my lastest Newsletter update and on this there is a link to February and March's Class Timetable.

February Classes will start again this week with Creative Cards on Wednesday and Friday mornings from 10am. For more details or to see these please call in store to see samples.

I look forward to seeing you at Maroochydore ....Jules

I'm in print!

Late last year I submitted a few cards to Australian Cardmaking Stamping & Papercraft magazine, more so out of courisity and didn't really think I would get a response, let alone a request to send a few of the originals in for publication. They said it might be in the Readers Gallery section. (still better than nothing)

So you can imagine my shock when back in January I received a letter, my original card and my FREE copy of the Magazine in which it was printed (Vol 16 No 11)
It was in the Readers Gallery but I'm still pretty stoked that my card was even wanted!! My style of card making is very clean and simple.

The card they chose was actually from a set of 4 that I had made previously for a Creative Card Class using papers from Echo Park and stamps from Papertrey Ink.

Below is the front cover of the magazine and also my card...
