Our theme for this highlight is Get Well soon - What a wonderful way to cheer someone up when they are feeling down.
I created a similar card to this one in my first class for 2017, using the gorgeous Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits dies, and a different sheet of patterned paper from the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack. The sentiment is from the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set, which has some lovely sentiments and images for sympathy cards too. The sentiment is stamped on Whisper White and punched out with the Classic Label punch.
Here are the supplies used to make this card. If you are in Australia please click on the images of any supplies you'd like to order from my online store!
Bookings are now open for my January cardmaking and papercraft classes in my Studio in Park Holme, South Australia.
Classes run for about 2 hours and cost $20, with all
materials supplied except for adhesives. Please bring basic small tools. We
usually make 3 or 4 projects, depending on how complex the projects are or how much material is used.
Bookings are essential for all classes so I have time to
make up the kits for you. Bookings close 3 days prior to each class. Please email me with your choice of bookings.

It's that time again, Stampin' Up's fantastic annual promotion to start off the year with a bang!
There are 3 parts to this promotion, Shop and get free goodies, "Host" and get bonus $$, Join and get extra stamp sets FREE!
With different options to get free goodies, there's one to suit you.
There's also the fantastic new Occasions Catalogue that just went live too!
If you are an experienced Sale-A-Bration groupie and know what you want, HERE is the link to my online shop and HERE is the link to join my team.
If you're not sure about this annual event, read on for more details.
1. Free products
There are 12 products exclusive to Sale-A-Bration, and you can download a PDF of the brochure by clicking on the picture below.
In Australia, for every $90 you spend on anything in either the new Occasions Catalogue or the Annual Catalogue, you get to choose one of the freebies in the Sale-A-Bration brochure.
2. $40 more to spend if you spend over $400.
This is the "Host" part, which doesn't necessarily mean you have to host an in-home party, but if you get together with a few friends to craft regularly you can collect their orders together and put them all in as a Catalogue party. Or, if you just want to put in a big order just for yourself, go right ahead and get all the Rewards, which start at 10% of the order over $250.
3. Extra bonus $$ when you join Stampin' Up!
Normally, when someone joins Stampin' Up! you get your choice of $235 worth of product for only $169, with free shipping and a pack of catalogues and order forms.
During Sale-A-Bration, the price is the same and you get your choice of $235 worth of product, but you also get to choose any 2 stamp sets as well, of any value (think about the most expensive sets in the catalogues)!
By joining Stampin' Up! you buy through yourself instead of buying through me, and you will get an immediate 20% discount on anything you buy, and get a bonus at the end of the month if you spend or sell enough.
If you're thinking of spending over $150 anyway, I think you should think about joining Stampin' Up! You don't need to actively sell to other people like I do, you can be your own customer and get the same discounts and perks, including being able to get new products a month before anyone else!
Of course, if you are looking at earning enough to pay for your hobby or to save for a holiday, or even to earn full time income, then this is the best time to start.
If you'd like more information, please email me with your phone number and I will call you so we can have a chat about it.
I'm so excited to be joining in a blog hop with my team, the Artful Stampers from Australia, and the fabulous Pootlers team from the UK, headed by the lovely Sam Donald. I'm a big fan of Sam and love watching her videos for ideas for little bags, boxes and treats for friends and customers.
Have a look at the gallery below and be inspired by all the gorgeous projects.
This was one of the cards made in a recent card class I held. This is a mixture of "old" (but still currently available) and "new" products.
I used the Wondrous Wreath stamp set for the wreath and the sentiment, and used the matching Wonderful Wreath framelits to cut out the wreath and the bow and hanger. This set has been around for a few years now, and is still one of my favourites.
To create the background I used the new Pine Bough embossing folder from the Holiday catalogue, embossing a piece of Whisper White cardstock with it and then using a dauber to lightly ink the raised areas in Cucumber Crush ink.
It's a clean and simple card, and doesn't really take too long to make.
Anyway, have a look at the rest of the lovely ideas in the blog hop in the gallery below.
Welcome to our International Visual Blog Hop using current Stampin' Up!®
Products. We have all created this gallery of projects for you to be
inspired by! We would love it if you could visit every one of our blogs
and see a close up of our projects. Our theme this month is LOVE because
as card makers we love spreading the love. You can see the gallery
below and this will be on every blog that you click on so you will never
My card is a Christmas card, and I especially love the sentiment on this one, as Christmas is a time for enjoying spending time with family and friends, spreading the message of peace, joy and love.
The fold is called a diagonal gate fold, and there are lots of tutorials and videos showing how to make this. I used This Christmas Specialty Designer Series paper and the Peace This Christmas stamp set for the sentiment. I used my favourite Copper embossing powder and the Holly Berry builder punch to create the accent on the central greeting. The holly leaves and berries were stamped with the matching Holly Berry Happiness stamp set.
Here are a couple more photos:
