Rollagraph Coffee 12 x 12 Layout

Black is Black 002

I love coffee!! As I have mentioned earlier it is one of my favourite things. I just had to create a layout about it, with my FAV mugs too.

I was inspired by another consultant who made a coffee cup out of our cupcake stamp, I just had to give it a go. I used 26152 Floral Flourish Jumbo Rollagraph wheel on this layout. I embossed it with Cocoa Bean embossing powder & also watermarked the rollagraph across the top & bottom of the page with perfect medium, then finished shading with pearlescent chalks.

Any other questions, please contact me.

The Blog War theme this week is BLACK is BLACK. Pop back tomorrow & I have some creations to show you.

Cheers, Tina

Rivergums Business Training Weekend


I have just got back from a fabulous Business Training Weekend away at Rivergums Homestead. I would like to send a "HUGE" Thank You to my Senior Team Leader Cheryl Devlin for organising this wonderful opportunity for me & the other consultants in her team who wanted to attend. We learnt some great skills & heaps of information about how we could develop our own Kaszazz Business to what ever level we wish to acheive. The weekend away was not only relaxing & FUN!!!!  but very inspiring for me.

I personally joined Kaszazz to make some new friends & now I'm looking forward to growing as a Team Leader.

If you would like to learn more about Kaszazz & having your own Kaszazz Business please contact me. I would be happy to send you a Kaszazz Business information pack.

Above is the ATC's I created for all the Consultants who attended the Business Training.


Cheryl gave us a little creative homework to do before we arrived.

We were asked to create our own personal SUCCESS JOURNAL (below), & a "HOW  CAN I" plaque (above) to keep us inspired & motivated. My HOW CAN I plaque is the dark blue one.


 Below is my SUCCESS JOURNAL. I created this with papers from the new World Traveller SB Paper range.

Blog War Day 1 - Blending Tool

This weeks PoW (Product of the Week) is the Blending Tool. I will be honest I have had my blending tool since they were released (a few months ago now) & this is the first time I have used it. I am loving the Blog Wars, & thank you to the girls who can up with the idea. Participating in the Blog Wars is encouraging me to better my skills & ensuring I use all my Kaszazz products. If you would like to join in with the Blog Wars please contact Lauren, she is in my Blog War participants list to the right of screen.

I have been busy creating today, & have created my 5 Blending Tool examples for the week. I am trying to get ahead of myself, as I am going away in a fortnight with a number of Kaszazz Consultants & Team Leaders, to learn more about all things Kaszazz!!. Cheryl Devlin is organising this weekend away for us, & we have homework (paperwork & creating) to do before we go. I will show you all the projects I have been creating for the weekend away once I get back. It's gonna be so much FUN!!


Today I used a piece of scrap cardstock I tore down the edge to created a grass & sky template. I used Distress inks with the blending tool. Faded Jeans for the sky, & Peeled Paint for the grass. I used the same template, just turned it over for each colour of ink. I also used the blending tool to colour a small piece of vellum green, then punched out the small daisies to add to the centre of the white embossed circles.

Cheers, Tina

Blog War Day 5 - Choose Your Weapon!


Today I created the card above by embossing in gold onto vellum, Romance & Bubblegum bazzill, & white cardstock. I used stamps from the Treasured Memories Set (7) & Mini Messages Set (9). I stamped Sally onto a white card with Coal Black Ancient Page, then coloured her with Lyra Aquacolor Crayons. I used some Ice Stickles to make her clothing sparkle. I finished off by adding one tiny rhinestone on her necklace from the Sticky Bling Flourish Sheet.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Cheers, Tina

Blog War Day 1 to 4 - Choose Your Weapon!

This week for the Blog War, the topic is choose your weapon! I have chosen "Embossing". Embossing is a technique I am not very confident doing, so this week will give me a chance to better my skills at it.

I have created these cute little "Chinese Takeaway Boxes". I have been wanting to make one since seeing Joanne create one on her Blog. They are a great little gift box idea, & you can personalise them any way you would like.

I only have a couple of embossing powders. I have used gold & copper on these projects. If you have any questions, please contact me.





The ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) I have created below are for my next swap, which is "Mother" themed. Stay tuned I will be posting some more ATC's soon.


Cheers, Tina
