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.

Ooh-La-La Card

Today I created a birthday card using our Ooh-La-La SB Paper range. The black & white range will let you easily create a classy looking project for every occasion! 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.

Oh La La Card

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.

Blog War Day 1 - 3 Distress Inks

This weeks (PoW) Product of the week for the BLOG WAR is Distress Inks.

I just love Distress Inks & I am slowly building my colour collection. Kaszazz sell 24 colours. Bright colour options are perfect for the new vintage, stained aged effects in altered books, scrapbook pages, cards & paper projects!

Distress Inks are acid free, non-toxic, fade resistant, water based dye inks & have been specially formulated to give an aged, weathered look to papers, photos & more!

Distress Ink Scrapbooking (5)













To create this layout I used one piece of each Flirty Bazzill BlingEssentials White. I stamped "Long Stemmed Daisies" across the bottom of the white with Perfect Medium & embossed it with clear embossing powder. With "Dusty Concord" Distress Ink I distressed over the daisies using a blending tool until I was happy with the shading of the resist technique. Tore across the page over the top of the daisies then adhered it to the base page. I stamped the daisies with the dusty concord onto white & then punched out 5 butterflies & distressed their edges. I stamped all other images on the page in dusty concord. Punched around the white matting for the photo & finished with a little icestickles on the base Flirty Bazzill Bling. 

Distress Ink Scrapbooking (3)


With this layout I tore a scrap piece of paper to create a mask. I literally then grabbed my Aged Mahogany Distress Ink Pad & smeared it from the piece of paper (which I had positioned) over the edge of a piece of ivory 12 x 12 to create the border for this layout. So easy!!! Weathered Wood Distress Ink is the other colour I used on this page. The red matting for the photo is pomegranate from the latest SB Essentials range.

This picture is of Becky & myself while we were away at Coobowie last weekend by the jetty at Wool Bay.

Distress Ink Scrapbooking (6)


The layout below I created using the following products: Jetstream & Limeade Bazzill Basics, Essentials white, Faded Jeans Distress Ink, Stamps - Swirl Frames, Chalk Small Bubble, Soccer & Carnival Alphabet.

Again.... I created the border around the layout by just grabbing my Faded Jeans Distress Ink Pad (down the right hand side) dragging it off the edge of the page & around the page stamping the ink pad over the edge of the layout. This is a great layout for a Beginner Scrapbooker to create. If you have any questions, please ask. I can order any of these Kaszazz products for you. Please contact me if you would like to place an order.

Inspiring Creations from our Getaway

This is my last post for the week. We are off on a family break this weekend to Coobowie on Yorke Peninsula. The kids have tomorrow off of school for the Royal Adelaide Show & Monday off as well for a teacher development day. A great opportunity to take off. Fingers crossed it doesn't rain all weekend, it's not looking too promising at the moment. I'm hoping to get some lovely photo's to complete my album I created in Deb Hale's Workshop she ran at our Getaway last weekend. I have included a picture of Deb's album in the pictures below. All the pictures below are from our Creative Getaway, great creations & projects from the girls who attended. I have numbered some of them so you can all let me know which one's are your favourites.

To all the DAD's out there. I wish you a very relaxing & Happy Fathers Day for Sunday. Enjoy yourselves!!!
