Last day of Sale A Bration

Before it's over I wanted to post these super quick & easy creations that use some Sale-A-Bration products.
The first is a 3x3 card using "Banner Blast" Stamp set & coordinating Banner Punch, one of my favourite choices from the Sale-A-Bration products on offer. I also used "Hardwood" background stamp, some Gold Bakers Twine & Gold Sequin from the current Occasions Catalogue.
The second  project is a 3 1/2" square piece of Sweet Sorbet DSP, this pack has been great, I used a couple of the other prints in this pack on Teya's invites here. Anyway I used my envelope punch board & scored the 3 1/2" piece at 1/2 an inch, continuing to turn the DSP & score using the previous score line as my guide to get the 2 3/4" x  1/ 1/2" I needed to wrap a Cadbury freddo frog that you buy in a share pack, I rounded 2 corners like for an envelope & tied with some Sweet Sorbet twine -another free SAB choice, love how thick this twine is. I also used "Starburst Sayings" stamp set & coordinating Starburst Dies from the Occasions Catalogue. You have until 30 June to get Occasions catalogue products but only until tomorrow to get SAB freebies, for every $90 order you get to choose a free SAB product. Call or email me if you would like to place an order or go straight to my online store here.

Hello Doily Wedding ensemble

I especially love the hand cut, embossed, painted hearts I made, all 100 of them! each one unique. The Shimmery White CS I used for the menu/name cards & bomboniere added a nice touch of bling. Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla & Shimmery White CS were used, the hearts were coloured with a mix of re-inkers Pool Party & Coastal Cabana so that co-ordinated nicely with & the Pool Party Seam Binding. I went through 1 1/2 white embossing powder tubs, that was very time consuming as the doily stamp is large & I stamped in both corners, lucky I had my sister here to help with that & it took us a full day to do about 90.
As usual my photo's don't do these justice they look so much nicer IRL.

Teya's 12th Birthday invites

 In between my nieces wedding in Sydney, new carpet & painting going on at home (my craft room half packed away) I had to get Teya's invites made, I had my order still packed in the box it arrived in so I whipped these up with what I had, I was thrilled with how they turned out.
Banner Blast SAB stamp set & coordinating punch, Sweet Sorbet DSP also a free SAB product & some Gold Bakers Twine from the new Occasions catalogue. Colours are Basic Black, Crisp Cantaloupe & Pool Party, stamped images also use Pistachio Pudding & Summer Starfruit ink.
I asked my dear friend & team member Tracey M to whip up some cupcakes & wow they were so pretty, she also made up the lolly party favors for Teya, who was so delighted & grateful. Thank you Tracey for helping us out & creating such beautiful sweet treats!
