Christmas cards

I made a couple of Christmas cards tonight, a blue theme one and a traditional red & green one.
The stamps are by Penny Black coloured with my Whispers markers, the blue paper is by Stemma, and the trees and swirls by American Crafts, I used quickutz snowflakes on the blue one, and Christmas lights rub ons and a 3D snowflake on the other from a local 2 buck stall.
I'm off to bed 12.30am now, night night. I'll be making more cards over the weekend.

Design Team member

Last week I sent off photos of most of my cards and off the page items that are on this blog to an Australian Company that make a beautiful range of off the page products as they are looking for design team members.
Today I got an email back saying "Congratulations, you have been selected for one of our Dreamit Design Team Members for 2009.
Thanks for sending your creative samples. We particularly like your off the page projects. Great work!"
Woohoo! I'm so happy! I'm sure it's going to be lots of fun doing this and they have said if I get my work published in a magazine they will pay me, even better!

LOTV card challenge 7

This is my card for the Lili Of The Valley challenge, this weeks theme is a card for a Teenager.
I was going to use one of my Jasmine or Oliver die cuts but decided to do a card for an older teen.
I have used a guitar stamp by Inkadinkado from the Rock Star set, the stripy paper is from DCWV glitter stack, the music note paper is by Love Elsie, i have used silver star mirri card for layering, and the background paper is from Craft Creations. The sentiment is printed off the PC. Bling by Kaiser.

Off the page

I decorated some cardboard bags last night for my kids and decorated a wooden Kaiser handbag album during the week too. I'm new to all this off the page stuff, but I enjoyed making them.
The other album I made a few weeks ago for a 40th, i bought a glitter spray for the 40 but ended up using glue and lots of gold glitter! I then sprayed it with workable fixative to stop the glitter from falling off.
Off to make some cards now.

Forever Friends challenge

Forever Friends Challenge - theme 'With Love'.
This is my card for the FF challenge, I don't have any stamps yet so I made this card with one of the stickers that were free with a magazine. The sticker is layered onto white card then onto silver mirri card, the background paper is by Kaiser, the green paper is the reverse of the same sheet layered onto gold mirri card, which always looks black when you scan the cards.
I used a corner punch on the bottom of the card and used silver foiled sentiments.
Hope you like it.

Crafty stuff!

I thought I would put some pictures on of where I do my cards and my recent purchases!
I have my own craft room now, in our last house I used to take over the dining table and we could never sit at it!
Now I just make a mess in here, the only bad thing is there is no door on this room, so I can't hide my mess! lol
I have also taken a pic of some of my Pocket Dragons that I collect and my ology books that I mentioned in my profile.
