Hello Foxy

Isn’t this a super adorable stamp set for June Stamp of the Month.

Foxes & Flowers, this set covers them both…  I enjoyed creating this simple card…


Isn’t it adorable…  I stamped the flowers & fox with Black StazOn Ink Z888, then coloured them with our Watercolours Z3132 & the Medium Waterbrush Z3225…  The sentiment has been stamped with Desert Sand Ink Z2818 to coordinate with the Kraft cardstock & White Burlap Ribbon Z3323…  I have finished it off with a bit of Clear Sparkle bling Z3274.
For more creative ideas using this stamp set please follow along a blog hop created by a number of Australian & New Zealand Close To My Heart Consutlants, Join Blog Here

This stamp set has a retail value of $27- however for June you can purchase this for $7.50 when you spend over $75-…

You can order online,, or contact me.

Happy Crafting,

No Worries

At first glance No Worries looks like a paper pack that you would use for summer holidays or cruising.   I knew I needed to look past that to find photos that would be suitable that weren’t summery!

And it worked!!!

How great do these photos look! They were taken on Mothers Day at Mt Lofty…  

Along with the paper pack I have also used some No Worries Sequins & Complements.  These products will be featuring at the June workshop so keep your eye out for some more ideas in June. 

Retiring Products

Time flies when you have a great product range…  Our 2016/17 Annual Inspirations Book is due to expire on 31st July 2017…  That means there are LOTS of new products coming our way in August…  That also means there are lots of products that will be retiring prior to that date.  The following is a list of items on the ‘While Stocks Last’ list:

Retiring 2017

Get your catalogue out and see what is still on your wish list.  Please bare in mind that these items are while stocks last, so some items may not last until 31st July.  My next order will be placed in 2 weeks so please let me know by then what is on your wish list.

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns…
