This was a wooden (brown) spice rack that I picked up at our local Op Shop. Bargain at $10- don't you think? I painted it with Gesso about 4 coats and then covered it with an ivory lace. The lids I thought would look great with individual rosettes on them and yep, they were the perfect fit. This is now my storage for some of my charms.



  Here is a wine bottle holder in the design of a shoe. I bought this fabulous find from my local Op Shop. Obviously I stripped it down to nothing and started again. I painted it with Gesso about 4 times then twice over with 'Pretty Pink' acrylic paint. I used trim and ribbon from my stash and the flowers are from I Am Roses. The lace I have used here is from Martha Pineda's Zibbet store. It was white and I Glimmer Misted it with Vintage Pink stain. It was the perfect colour to go with my project. You can find her laces at http://creatingisfun.blogspot.com.au/. Seriously...check out Martha's store, she is having a Summer Clearance with 50% off storewide until the end of August. Come on guys, not long to go!

Hi there everyone, sorry for the long time away. I have been here, but I have been very busy with other crafts and family things. When all of that catches up to me, I just want to relax in bed with my laptop or ipad and just see what you guys have been up to. I have three cards to show you in this post and then I have to cook for the family.

For this card I wanted to use the film strip and add an array of images by the same artist. So here I have used the following stamps all by Sherri Baldy
starting from left to right :
'Birthday Surprise', 'Wendy Work Out', 'Lula Bell', 
'The Gift', 'First Prom', and 'Sizzlin' Hot Summer'
All of these stamps are available from http://addicted-to-stamps.blogspot.com.au/
I have use black cardstock, 'Timeless' paper by Merci, doubled-sided ribbon in 'Ecru' and a ribbon buckle from my stash, the camera die by MFT and the sentiment was simply printed out from my computer.

This card was created using 'Wendy Work Out' by Sherri Baldy available from http://addicted-to-stamps.blogspot.com.au/. The cardstock I have used is Kraft cardstock and the papers are 'Authentique'. They were supplied by Carlene (PinkScrapper) and are available at http://www.pinkscrappersboutique.com/. The flowers are by I Am Roses.

This stamp is a new one from http://addicted-to-stamps.blogspot.com.au/ 
and it's called 'Sexy Lil Devil' 
and is from the 'Naughty Girl' collection by Heather Valentin. 
Isn't she just amazing!

With this card I have simply used black cardstock and paper from the Kaisercraft 'Black & White' Timeless paper pad. I have used double-sided satin ribbon in red and a red rose from my stash. 

O.k. guys, dinner's ready time to go and dish it up! I will be back to post another card :)

Halloween Card

Hello everyone. I love this card in all it's creepiness. The image is called 
Halloween #1 and it's by Morgan Fitzsimons . This image is available at 
http://addicted-to-stamps.blogspot.com.au/. I place the image on a 6x6 card (black). I wanted it to look like she had the ground around exposing her and obviously the creepy crawlies that once feasted on her coming out of the ground. To achieve this I used course gravel and mixed it with PVA glue. The bugs I had to colour in aswell because they were orange and green and different bright, unrealistic colours. I placed them as though they were coming out and then waited a day for it to dry. I dreamt about this darn card too. I was pleasantly surprised to find it had dried the way I intended and went ahead and painted it in Raw Umber acrylic paint. As the card is extremely 'top heavy', I backed both sides with medium weight chipboard. Then covered the top with black braided trim. 
I used Copics as usual to colour my image.

I hope you all have a great day! xx

 O.k....I did say it was gonna be creepy. Please understand that this card was not made for anybody, nor was it created to offend anybody under any circumstance. I did this as I saw something that could be on the 'flip side' to a very lively and pretty card. I love how it came out as I know that there was nothing malicious behind it. The image is 'Fade To White' by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff and can be purchased from 

Copics Used:

Fade To White

Good afternoon all. Today I decided I was going to colour this image in two different ways. The pretty way and a more creepy sort of way. I haven't finished creepy yet, however, it'll give you something to come back for won't it? This image is called 'Fade To White' and it's by Mitzi Sato -Wiuff available from http://addicted-to-stamps.blogspot.com.au/. The cardstock I used is American Craft in 'Peony' and the paper, ribbon and ribbon buckle are from my stash. The flowers are by I Am Roses and I'm using the leaf punch by E K Success.

Copics Used:

Saturated Canary Frenzy

Hey there everyone :) These are some cards I created before I had a blog. I love these images. I tried to use different colour schemes and I had purchased a whole heap of Saturated Canary digis. So I thought I'd upload them and share them with you all. There are more S.C. but these ones were done in a sequence within a day or two :)





This one was a FREEBIE, so it's not available through the shop.





Wish BIG

Oops! I published these photos before writing anything...heehee. Don't you just love the 'edit' option? Anyway, I created this card for my husband for his birthday (which was in May) well before his birthday. However, in saying that, I thought I would post it in my blog for you all to see. I have been cutting and pasting alot of stuff to be able to show it in my blog as I am pretty new to all this blog stuff. I was lucky enough to have a FB friend of mine (Sher Brown) create the blog for me. Thank you Sher xxx (I am hopeless at this stuff). For the people who have been kind enough to follow my blog "Thank you" from the bottom of my heart. 

This is a Kenny K image called 'Honey Sparks'

Hello there everybody. I have four Copic projects that I created here for you and I'll do my best to remember the colours I have used for each.
