Let's just call it November

I love paper crafting, it keeps me sane(ish) and I love to be busy, so holding down a full(ish) time job and coming up with classes and kits keeps me on my toes. 
So this is what has kept me busy since my last post....enjoy!

It's been a while

It seems like I say this all the time...so maybe this is just the way I blog from now on - when I can, with no expectations of being consistent as I have so many other commitments. I still want to share what I have been up to though (recent classes and kits)...

Have you kissed your stamps lately?

This is such a cool technique that works especially well with silhouette stamps as there is a larger surface area to work with (Look closely at the center card figures).

I had such fun playing with the Impression Obsession stamps to come up with this class and am very happy with the end results and the other techniques used.

Love them so much, I had to buy more of the silhouette stamps hehehe.

Busy Busy with classes

My continuing absence from blog land is due in a large part to working full time again at my local scrapbook store, teaching classes and making kits. I've been busy crafting, just not posting. Here are some of the cards/tags and art journal:

I love playing with new products and the Finnabair Rust Effects paints by Prima are certainly fun. I have used then in an upcoming technique class at Catchy Crafts - Metal Magic, showing different faux metal techniques but also had a lot of fun with this rusty old ute as a birthday card.

and here is a sneak peek at all 3 colours of the rust paste used in the class:

Playing with Dolls

I was lucky enough to teach a class at my local craft store the other day (Catchy Crafts) using the 2016 release of Julie Nutting Dolls. I was happy with the way the tags turned out and the ladies all enjoyed the class....I think we will be doing more Playing with Dolls in the months to come:

Getting Crafty

Working in a craft shop again, while having less time to create does give me loads of inspiration. I am surrounded by extremely talented people and that just makes me itch to get crafty.

Because I now work on the day that Terri teaches the Art Journal class that I was enjoying so much has meant that I don't get to the Art Journal as much as I would like....but yet am super inspired. I did this today on my day off. It is inspired totally by her last class, but with a tweak, because as you know I like to do my own thing:

She very graciously loaned me some of the stamps used in the class so I could get the same look, and I do love the Dyan Reaveley stamps, so may have to invest in a set or two myself.

All Dolled Up

My motto these days seems to be "long time no blog", but hopefully the content will more than make up for it. I make no secret of my love for the Julie Nutting Doll stamps and have made these cuties to display at my LSS where I am back working (Yay!). I haven't got my hands on the 2016 release yet, but stay tuned for when I do.
