Product Challenge - Fortnight 5

Fortnight 5 sees us using the 1391 12cm Flowers.
My creation started out as a card inspired by Alison Facey's card printed in the Australian Cardmaking Stamping & Papercraft Mag Vol 15 No 8, however it quickly turned into an 18th Birthday Party Invite for my little sister. That is until she then dropped the bombshell that she needs 50 invites - I don't love her that much.
All products are from Kaszazz - the words "It's a Party" has been cut from Black Bazzill using my Cricut.

Panda Card

Just thought I would quickly share this with you all. This was the card my customers made at my new product launch back in January this year. We stamped the Panda in Ancient Page - Coal Black onto Gloss card and the edges of the two mats were also distressed using the new Distresser tool. Another very simple card from my collection!

Glitter Playdough

As Charlotte was having a friend over for the weekend, I had promised to make them some playdough. Unable to put my hands on my trusted and tried recipe, my lovely hubby found me one on the net - which suggested that I add glitter into the mix for a sparkly treat. So off to my stash of Kaszazz glitters and I added a tube of 10316 Top Boss Glitter - Sparkling Amethyst to the batch of pink playdough. The results were incredible and both girls thought I was the best. This has to be the best playdough I have ever made!

Playdough Recipe
2 Cups Plain Flour
4 Tablespoons Cream of Tartar
2 Tablespoons Cooking Oil
1 Cup Normal Salt
2 Cups Boiling Water
Food Colouring of choice
Glitter of choice

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl before adding wet ingredients. Stir together until combined. Knead on a floured board or benchtop. Enjoy!

Product Challenge - Fortnight 4

Well, you will all have to excuse the non event for this challenge!
Product Challenge - Fortnight 4 is the 1370LF Snowy Large Stamp and is not a stamp that I would ever consider buying. It would have to be my least favourite stamp in the Kaszazz Catalogue. Mind you each to their own when it comes to taste.
I would be really interested if anybody has used this stamp to see what you did with it - you never know, it may even change my mind!

F: A-Z Scrapbooking Album

I had been stumbling on the F is for Fiji page! Until I was looking through an old card magazine and found the idea for the ratty border - so I adapted it to suit my page. I am happy with how it turned out in the end. Now for G!

Smooch Spritz Storage

Seen I am now in cleaning/tidy up mode - I thought I would share with you all how I store my Smooch Spritz's. It is simply a Mini Minister Organiser which Kaszazz sells for $24.95! I can't take the credit for the idea though - the lovely Fi from Forbes told me about this wonderful storage idea a couple of Team Training Days ago!

Cricut - Scrap Caddy

Well, both kids are finally in bed asleep, so I decided to sneak into my craft room for a bit of a play in order to hopefully brighten my mood!
My poor desk is so overloaded with everything that when I sat down most of it fell onto the floor - which was probably just as well - as the Scrap Caddy's that I had recently brought landed on top. So rather than just dumping them back on my desk - I decided to put my Cricut Cartridges into their new home.
I love my new Caddy's as they fit 8 cartridges, books & overlays comfortably in each one and then you can stack them on top of each other. I even lashed out and brought the strap that joins 2-3 together making them easier to transport.

Product Challenge - Fortnight 3

The challenge this time was to use the Angel Wings Stamp! I must admit that I have cheated on this challenge, as I had already created these pages for a Team Training Day Competition last year - where you had to use Antique Embellishment Kit. I have used opalescent embossing powder on vellum for the wings - which gives a lovely coloured sparkle in real life. I also watermarked the bear on the solid blue bazzill in the pocket pieces.
The trial workshops for this layout went really well and I have even sold a few kits, however, I have just never gotten around to finishing off the instructions. So.... I am using this challenge to motivate myself and finish the instructions so I can submit them to Kaszazz. Wish me luck!

Tri Fold Christmas Card

A very dear friend of mine had asked me to do the Kaszazz Tri Fold Christmas Card workshop created by the talented Kim Gauci for her in June - but as time had it for both me and her - I ended up teaching the above card only yesterday based on Kim's instructions and with what supplies I had on hand. I love the simplicity and country rustic-ness of this card. Some of the ladies that made the card yesterday coloured the stars in on the baubles using the Green Apple and Siren Smooch!
I am seriously thinking that this might be my Christmas Card this year!
