Two More Creations

While I was staying at Pam's on the weekend in Mt Gambier I bought the current issue of the "Better Homes & Gardens" magazine. The current issue has a number of paper/card projects you can make. These hearts were one of the designs & they were so easy to make. Perfect creation to make with our Kaszazz Christmas papers.

Christmas Hearts


Birthday Card

I created this card by shading & colouring the stamped image & card with pearlescent chalks. The photo does'nt really show it up but the card has a beautiful shimmer to it.

All products used are Kaszazz & I can order them for you. If you have any questions please contact me.

It's been a while!!!

Hi All,

It's great to be posting on my Blog, it's been a few weeks since I've been here. Sorry about that!!

I have just returned from a "GIRLS ROAD TRIP" on Monday with fellow Kaszazz Consultants Margaret Lante & Lisa Hughes. We drove 500kms to Mt Gambier to spend some time with Pam Kuhn. We stayed at Pam's & had a wonderful time meeting other Consultants/Customers from Mt Gambier.

It was so nice just to getaway & spend some time with beautiful company, great wine, lots of lollies, chocolate & of course craft!!!

Thank you Pammy, Richard, Kyle & Amy for your hospitality xxxx

I have been creating over the past couple of weeks, but I have been keeping a little "secret squirrel" as I have been making gifts for people. I can show you some pictures of them now.

Below I created post-it note covers & monogrammed each gift with the receivers initial for a personal touch. They are such a great little gift to hand out to friends. I made them up to replace a christmas card by writing my little christmas message on the inside, on the first post-it note.

 I created this star decoration by embossing the "Swirl Tree Large" Stamp with stirling silver embossing powder.

Blog War - Primary Colours

I am so glad I joined the Blog Wars, choosing different techniques, themes, products each week really takes me out of my comfort zone & encourages me to create projects I otherwise wouldn't even think about doing or using.

This weeks theme for the Blog Wars is Primary Colours. Red, Blue & Yellow.

I created with a friend of mine (Hi Kim) on Wednesday morning, within 2 hours I created the 3 12 x 12 pages below. I would never put these colours together, unless I was doing a kids birthday card :), but I really like the way these layouts came out. What do you think?

Teabag Folding

Yesterday I had some creative fun with friends. A lovely new friend of mine Kathy Wilson showed me how to do teabag folding. I had never done it before. Although I found it not "my cup of tea" LOL had to say it :) pardon the pun... it is always nice to learn new things.

I created the cards below, hope you like them.

teabag fold cards


Teabag folding is a form of origami, the development is credited to Tiny (pronounced Teeny) van der Plas, who as a practitioner of origami developed the technique in 1992, as a papercraft art for embellishing greeting cards. It uses small square pieces of paper bearing symmetrical designs that are folded in such a way that they interlock and produce a 3 Dimensional version of the underlying design.

Blog War Day 2 - Elegance Vellum

Elegance Card 001

Well it seems I confused a few Consultants with my choice of Ellegance Vellum this week, sorry girls!! It confused me too. I knew it must have been somewhere, as I have labelled my vellum storage folder pages with Elegance Vellum. I found it today!! in a past issue of the Kaszazz Catalogue (the brown one) on page 32 is Scrapbooking - Ellegance. It includes 4635 Gold Hearts, 4636 Gold Roses, 4637 Gold Script, 4638 Silver Hearts, 4639 Silver Roses & 4640 Silver Script Vellum. These are available to view in the Current Kaszazz Catalogue on pages 40 & 41.

These vellums are perfect for creating romantic & sentimental scrapbooking pages & are full of charm, grace & charisma!

The card I created above with 4447 Gold Bazzill Basics & 4637 Gold Script Vellum. I embossed the heart stamp with 10029 Gold Sparkle Embossing powder. The photo looks like copper as I took it with the flash off, the one before with the flash on just reflected everwhere. The card looks much nicer in real life.

Cheers, Tina

School Holidays

Hi All,

Well the kids are home for the school holidays & my whole routine is out of whack!! I haven't had a chance to get to my blog, sorry about that! Mick & I have also been busy re-sealing the slate in our house, the smell of the sealer is quite strong so we slept in the shed for a couple of nights. It's all done now & looks lovely!!

We also went in the Bay to Birdwood Run with my AP6 Valiant last weekend. I have had this car since I was 16. We have always wanted to participate in the Bay to Birdwood & this year we finally did it! We had a lovely day together, the kids didn't want to come, so it was just the two of us. Over 1700 vehicles participated.

I have managed to create of few things over the school holidays. Today I created 5 cards using gold hearts vellum & leaf nouveau design adhesive with gold glitter. This would be great idea for a 5PQ. Ellegance vellum is the Blog War product this week.

Below is a great new product released by Kaszazz - Hinged Ring Album 12 x 12 School Days.

Everything is there for you in this kit to put it together. Priced at $39.95, a great keepsake for the years to come. Please contact me if you wish to purchase one. I can post it out to you.

 This layout below I created using one of the templates from the A 2 Z Scrapbooking Kit. This is the "Letter B" template, I have just used different cardstock. I found I have used the templates from the A 2 Z kit many times over using different cardstock to achieve many different looks. If you would like more info on the A 2 Z of scrapbooking please contact me or you can check it out on page 8 of the Current Catalogue, link to right of screen.

Team Meeting

Last night I attended our Monthly Kaszazz Team Meeting hosted by my Senior Team Leader (Cheryl Devlin). Each month Cheryl gives our team a little competition challenge to do, if we wish to participate. This month's competition was to create a Make & Take Bookmark using at least 2 stamps, in black & white theme with a hint of 1 other colour of our choice! The winner is chosen by majority vote. Below is my bookmark & lucky me!!! I was chosen the winner!!! Thanks Girls x

Team Meeting Make & Take

To all the girls who gave me such positive feedback about my Blog last night, thank you so much!! It made me feel all warm & fuzzy inside :) I thoroughly enjoy creating for my Blog & feel so good about inspiring others. 

We also had our ATC swap last night, the theme was Mosaic.

ATC Mosaic

ATC Mosaic (2)








With my ATC, I first stamped, embossed & blended images onto white card stock. I then cut the trimmed image into 1cm squares & adhered them to a piece of double sided sticky paper. This is a time consuming exercise, so beware!! Once I finished adding the pieces to the sticky paper I trimmed it to size, then embossed between the squares with sterling silver embossing powder. Finished by sticking it to a piece of crimson bazzill.

These are the other ATC's I received.

I completed the card by adding a piece of burgundy ribbon, sticky bling & coloured rhinestones. Kaszazz sell Twill ribbon in a number of colours, but it is no longer available to purchase in burgundy.

Blog War - Kids Cards & Invitations

Hi All,

What a week!!! I created the invitation below on Monday & the days have just got away from me.


The kids have gone on camp this week, one left on Monday, back on Wednesday & the other left Wednesday & back today. I think they would have really enjoyed the week apart from each other. I've had painters in the house painting all the main living areas Monday - Wednesday. So you know how it is, furniture everywhere!!! All finished now though, looking beautiful. It's so nice to have a colour change & freshen the house. LOVE IT!! I have been creating but not all of it has been for the Blog War, so I do apologise for the lack of Blog War creations this week!!

Below I have added MORE pictures of creations from the ladies who attended our Creative Getaway. Hope you find them all inspiring. I definately have.
