how to make a Book easel card

Pin It

Hi all, the last few days here have been a bit frustrating as our daughter was so glad to be back to the mothership as she calls it she watched 3 weeks worth of master chef on line and put us back to dial up......... grrr waiting for the 5 days to clock over before its back to broad band seemed like eternity but it wasn't and we got other things done ! including mountain bike riding, bats chasing us on the bikes...scary! and some new projects to add to my blog :) I made this book easel card some time ago and decided to do a tutorial on how i made it. You will need the Labels seven die set from spellbinders or you could cut your own templates.

Cut yourself a base card stock 13 X11 cm this worked good as it made the card look bigger as the largest die isn't big enough in its self for the card...unless you want a small card. I used the 3 largest dies for this project. 1 largest die for the book cover and the next 2 smaller ones one in very vanilla and the other in whisper white for the pages. Watch the video for all the finer details on how this was made. here are some more angles and another version..

and a last thought

The whole bible was given to us
by inspiration from God and is
useful to teach us what is true
and to make us realize what is wrong
in our lives; it straightens us out and
helps us to do what is right. It is Gods way
of making us well prepared at every
point, fully equipped to do good to everyone.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

Angel punch art.....come on Christmas isn't the only time to see angels!!

Pin It
Hi all, I'm sure you all have at least one angel in your life! you know the person who is just there for you no matter what! the person who looks past all the crap you dish out and See's you for who you really are, even the person who gave you a smile today when you really needed it and you don't even know them. These are the angels that God brings into our lives to lift us and reflect his love to us! This was my inspiration for this cute little punch art angel today. We also have our daughter home from Uni for the next 6 weeks !! so happy to see her :) she will be doing 2 weeks of her first in school prac during this time. I got interrupted so many times doing this video our youngest daughter was outside my window pulling faces at me then the parcel guy turns up .......ahhhh! it was funny though.
So to make this cute angel you will need some Stampin up punches which you can order through me here!

1 Large Tag punch for the dress and sleeves. 3 extra if you are mounting on clouds.
2 one and 1/4' circle punch, one for the head and one for the hair.
3 scallop ovals, 2 for the wings and one for the skirt frill (optional).
1 of the smallest flowers cut in half from the Bo Ho blossoms punch for the hands.
an embossing stylus, some crystal effects and some glitter for detail on the wings.
card stock was apricot appeal, very vanilla and whisper white.
inks used for sponging were more mustard, so saffron, pretty in pink for the cheeks & bashful blue for the clouds.
Fine black marker for the eyes

in the below pic Ive shown the double punching for the hair and where to cut on the tag punch for the dress, don't throw out the scrap from this as it then becomes the sleeves! I love finding ways to used the bits that you cut off! :)

Glue all the pieces together starting at the hands. I embossed lines in the wings then added the crystal effects and glitter to finish. One thing i forgot to mention in the video was i sponged pretty in pink with a sponge dauber for the cheeks. I think she turned out pretty cute! and an idea that can be used for any time not just Christmas!........enjoy
Blessings to you

and a last thought

Don't forget to be kind to strangers,
for some who have done this
have entertained angels without
realizing it!

Punched paper lily

Pin It
Oh WOW ! is all i can say........... a huge thank you to Sharri for allowing me to do a video tutorial on how to make her beautiful punched Lily flowers. Here is the link to her blog, its called papercrafts love affair please pop over and leave a comment on these they are stunning! the scrapbook box is also a great idea too and you'll find all the dimensions for that also! well i hope i have done your design justice Sharri, i popped in a few of my own tips I found helpful in making this too :) ....on a family note....we Will be heading down to Avondale Uni open day for our son as he decides what he will do after he leaves school next year and we'll also get to see our daughter Beth at the same time...can't wait. She has battled with homesickness pretty bad and we stay in contact quite a bit! Our prayers go with her each day and I know God has a place for her to learn new things and love her new life. She will be home soon to do her first in school prac at the local Adventist primary school here in Macksville which she is very excited about and then has 4 weeks at home after that. You know i never thought it would be so hard to watch your kids go and make their own way in this world ....its all been a real learning curve for us all! God is good though and i see His blessings each day which I am always grateful for. ok so here are a few more pics then the video...enjoy and thanks again Sharri for sharing your talents with me and the world! blessing to you today Xx

Deals of the week from Stampin up/ Extended Offer on my stitched flower patters & what to do with all that brown paper packing from stampin up!

Pin It
Pop over to my stamping up blog and you'll find some great deals on their punches for one week wont want to pass these up. For this month there will be different deals on each week so stay tuned ! Also if your thinking of becoming a Stampin up demonstrator we have a special offer for you too! click below to get in contact with me about these deals

Hi all, I had my first stampin up demonstration this week and although I learned some things I also had a great time! over all it went well.

Due to the overwhelming response to my stitched flower patterns which i thank you all greatly I will be keeping the deal open for another week! ending Tues. 8th June so please click on this link Stitched Flowers fold patterns to take advantage of this extended offer and be eligible for my Fresh Fold club offers.

Now down to some more fun stuff!!

Ever wondered what to do with all that brown paper packing that comes with the stampin up orders? Make puffy flowers of course! they work great. Just a word of advise though you will need to add a sheet of photo copy paper in with the 4 layers of brown paper for the scallop punch to stay happy! i shimmer mist mine with gold and sponged the edges with chocolate chip ink.

Isn't it gorgeous! now enjoy the video

Blessings to you
