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.

Check out my participant list to the right of screen, to seen if any of the other Blog War girls have been able to get any creations posted. If you have any questions regarding my creations below, please ask. All products used are Kaszazz & I can order them for you.

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.

 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.
