11 February 2013 – I’m on the banner wagon!

I’ve noticed whilst surfing Pinterest that Banners are becoming quite popular. I have loved them all and wanted to make one.

As you may have noticed, I love my Big Shot!! I’ve used so many dies!! Firstly, I started with Scallop Square Clear Bigz die. I love the fact that you can cut 6 pieces of cardstock in one go! I then used the Rosette XL Bigz die to cut out strips from the lovely new Tea for Two Designer Series Paper to make the rosettes. I used two strips per square. These are so easy to make using my trusty hot glue gun.

I then used the 2 3/8″ Scallop circle punch in So Saffron and then layered with the Circle 2# Original die cut from more of the Tea for Two DSP. I used the Naturals White card stock as the base circle for the letters.

This is the first time that I’ve used my new Typeset Alphabet Bigz die. Using the multipurpose adhesive sheets makes it so easy to attach the letters. I just had to think about which way the letters needed to be cut so that they weren’t backwards!!

I added the Tea Time Trinkets which are very cute!

I hope you like it! I’ve hung it in my craft room above the window that I sit in front of.

6 July 2012 – Gift cards and Box

Hi everyone!!

Hope you are enjoying the lovely cool weather that we’ve been having!!  At last month’s Stamp Club, we made the cutest box and 3 little gift cards.  I used the 3 x 3 box tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers, click here for the link.

We got to play with the new Simply Scored tool, which makes scoring for boxes so easy!  I really like it!

Here’s the box.

I just love the Twitterpated DSP.  It’s so cute and I love the different sheets in the pack to give a different look.  Here’s the cards.

We also used the new Diagonal scoring plate to make matching little envelopes but I forgot to take a photo of one.

Happy New Year!!! – 2 January 2012

Happy New Year!!!  Can you believe that we are now in 2012!!!  I hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year.  I spent Christmas day going to church and then with my parents and in-laws at my place.  We were stuffed by the end of the day!!!  Santa was also very kind to me and I got just about everything on my list, including a silver pandora bracelet!!  Now to fill it up!!

Stampin’ Up! have announced that the Stocking Tag punch will not be continuing into the main catalogue later this year and when stocks run out, that’s it!!  So if you were thinking about purchasing this punch, you need to get in quick.  Contact me at stampinwithrebecca@yahoo.com.au or 0408 193 792 to order.

I’ve had to work between Christmas and New Year so I’m just getting into playing with some of the new products from the Summer Mini.  One of my goals this year is to be more original with the cards that I post on my blog.  So I’m going to try out a few of the sketch challenges that are out there. This week, I’m trying out one from Mojo Monday, who have a great sketch every week.  This one has already closed but I thought I would give it a try anyway.

Here’s the sketch:

I’ve been wanting to use the Spiced Cake DSP from the Summer Mini.  This paper is just gorgeous and the catalogue really doesn’t do it justice.  I think I set a record on this card for the number of big shot dies that you can use on one card!!  Love my Big Shot!!!

Here’s a close up of the flower (and isn’t the paper lovely)

Stamp Set:  Perfectly Penned

I also participated in a Secret Santa swap with ESAD (Extremely Special Aussie Demonstrators) which is a Facebook group that I belong to for SU demonstrators.  I sent a parcel to Richelle and I received a parcel from Louisa.  I was very lucky and got lots of lovely goodies.  Thank you, Louisa!!

All the packages before opening.

9 September 2011 – Fabric!!!!!

I’m so excited that Stampin’ Up! have introduced fabric to their range of fabulous products!!!  As an occasional patchworker, I love all the fabrics that they have on offer.  I also love my big shot and I’ve been able to use it on this project.

I’ve made a bag using the Scallop Square die and the Beau Chateau fabric range.  It was really easy to put together, and so easy to cut out using the Big Shot.  I was able to put 6 layers of fabric through in one go which I was really impressed with!!!  I also used the flower folds die to cut out the flowers, which I attached with the subtles buttons.

Here’s a close up of the flower.

Fabric:  Beau Chateau, calico

Accessories:  Big Shot, Scallop square die, flower folds die, subtles buttons.

13 July 2011

I hope you are enjoying winter!!  It has certainly hit with a vengence!!

I’ve just finished a couple of cards that I had left over from a workshop.  I’ve had the pieces on my desk for ages, so it’s nice to finally get them done!!  At our last stamp class, we made an easel card using the scallop squares duo die from the latest mini catalogue.  It inspired me to make one with the bigger scalloped square die from the summer mini.  These cards are so easy to make but look very impressive!!

Here’s the side view!!

And here’s the inspiration!!  (The pumpkin pie card was actually inspired by a card that I received as a swap at Convention, so thanks to Sharon Turnbull for a great swap!!)
