Anzac Day 2011

This morning we attended the Dawn Service in Nambour... Remember our ANZACS

They shall grow not old, As we that are left grow old
Age shall not wary them, Nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun... And in the morning
We will remember them...
Lest We Forget

Another Birthday Card

I had to make another Birthday Card this weekend for Anthony's Mum who's Birthday is tomorrow.
This is a really simple card that I made but still happy with the outcome.

I used one of my new Lockhart Stamps that arrived on Thursday called African Violets in a Teacup. I have coloured this image with my Copic Markers. I stamped my image twice and then I coloured and cut out some of the flowers again and then I added a foam dot and raised a few of the flowers.
The pattern paper is from a old Basic Grey 6x6 paper pad, added some Lilac Vintage Seam Binding and a few clear Rhinestones.

Why is it that when you don't need to get up and go to work, you always end up waking up early??

I took these photos early this morning. How amazing are these colours in this morning's Sunrise.

Happy Easter to you all..stay safe...


Copic Project Course

Last Sunday, Sharon and I attended the Copic Project Design Course that was held in Brisbane by Copic Australia and taught by Kathy Jones.
I had a great day and learnt sooo much.
I loved all the projects that we made and certainly learnt heaps. We got to use a variety of stamps and products
I must admit my least favourite project that we did was the Stamping and Colouring on Fabric. I did colour in the image on the practise piece of fabric, but I have still not coloured in the image on my apron.

As I've said in the past, these pens are truely amazing, you can do so much more than just colouring in with them.

If you want to learn more, then keep watching for updates for upcoming classes we will have in the coming months.

Below is my completed card, tag and candle that I made, all coloured with Copic Markers.

Another Easter Card

I have another Easter Card to share with you that I was able to sit done and make recently.
I have used one of the lastest Magnolia stamps Tilda Holding Egg Basket, which is one of my favourites from the latest Collection.

I have coloured Tilda in with Copic Markers and I have tried to keep her in softer, pastel colours which are more colours we tend to use at Easter.

The Pattern Papers are from Echo Parks Little Girl Collection and I have used a mix of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Kaiser and the Trim is from Prima.

Hope you all have a Happy and Safe Easter and I hope this rain we are having here on the "Sunny Coast" decides to move on!!

Happy Easter...

I cannot remember the last time I actually sat down a made a card for myself. I am making cards all the time but they are usually for classes or Monthly Card Kits. So during the week I thought I had better make a few Easter Cards to send to family.

This image is from the latest Magnolia Collection, that Sharon kindly lent me.
The papers I used are from My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose Collection-Mabel 6x6 paper pad.
I have coloured my image with Copic Markers to match the colours in my papers.

I just love this entire Stella & Rose Collection of papers, and it certainly shows as we have used just about every single piece of paper in classes, kits and cards!

Lockhart Stamps are coming to Creations in Paper

I am very happy to announce that Creations in Paper will be stocking
Lockhart Stamps

My first order is on it's way from the US, so I will be hassling the postman everyday waiting for my parcel to show up!!

I am also very happy to say that I will be the only store in Australia to have
Lockhart Stamps available.

I can't wait to get my hands on some of these so I can start colouring with my Copic Markers. As much as I love colouring all the cute little girl and boy stamps that we currently stock but I think it will be a nice change to be able to make some cards with differnt images on them!

Over the years I have seen Lockhart Stamps used on different blogs around the world but never realised that no one actually sold them here in Australia, so a huge big "Thank You" to Linda who originally directed me to their website and mentioned to me about stocking these stunning stamps!!

Be sure to check back or check in store to see what I have.... also don't forget that I do mail orders also!!
