New Release: Spirit of Christmas Set

It's no secret that poinsettias are my favourite Christmas flowers, and I know I'm not alone in loving them for seasonal projects.  Their large petals and leaves make them easy and fun to colour, plus they look great in just about any colour you choose... traditional reds and greens or more modern pinks, blues and purples.
 

Check out all the fantastic cards made by my designers using a range of different colouring mediums and styles.

Mini Album - "Our Story"

I have another mini album to share with you today, not quite as involved as last month's make, but still lots of fun and achievable in a weekend.  This little album measures 6" x 6" and contains ten pages plus the front and back cover.  I used the same technique to create the cover and spine as last month, but only added half the pages and a lot less embellishing.
 
 
I started out by selecting all the papers and embellishments I thought I might use on my album.  I find it easiest to do this first so I'm not scrabbling around later looking for things that match the colour or theme of my project.

New Release: Blessings of the Season

I've had a blast designing my Christmas range this year - everything from elegant vases of holly to Aussie floral wreaths... with the odd penguin or two thrown in for good measure!  I have several sets to release over the next few months, starting with this holly set titled "Blessings of the Season".

New Release: The Great Jack Set

I love to draw and colour pumpkins, so designing images for Halloween and Thanksgiving is something I look forward to every year.  I was feeling a little nostalgic for the simpler days of childhood as I drew these images, hence the scribbly shadow lines and vintage typewriter font.
 
 
My fabulous designers have created some spectacular cards to share with you using this new set.  From rich, rustic colours with deep shadows and glowing oranges, to heavily distressed, vintage-style cards that capture the mood of the season, I'm certain you'll find something inspiring amongst these beautiful creations.

October New Releases

I absolutely love this time of the year!  All the "big" holidays are just around the corner and year's end is in sight.  Here in Australia the weather is starting to warm up and the kids are looking forward to the end of the school year with a nice long break stretching out before them.  It's a wonderful time for designing stamps too... there are so many ideas, themes and subjects to choose from!

New Release: Dance Lessons

Ellie and Tippy are off to their dance lesson!
 
This new set of digital stamps is the latest in the Ellie & Tippy range.  Sparkle N Sprinkle will be making them in rubber for everyone who prefers traditional stamping, and I have the digital version for sale in my store now. 
 


Sadly, these are the last cards my lovely designers will be making for me as their term has come to an end.  I want to extend a huge thank you to each and every one of them for all their hard work over the past six months, and to wish them well for the future.  Thanks team, you've been awesome!
