Cricut Bug Head

Look what I made today!  I have wanted to make one of these cute little Cricut Bug Heads for a long time now and stumbled across the instructions on this fantastic blog - Two Chics & A Cricut!
The instructions also include a YouTube clip - which for me made making this cutie really easy.
If you own a Cricut, this blog is a must to check out at http://www.twochicsandacricut.blogspot.com/ !

Sympathy Cards

An Aunt & Uncle on my husband's side lost their sister last week to Cancer, luckily I had these cards in my stash as I find it really hard to make sympthay cards when they are needed.
Both cards feature the 1718LK Cherry Blossoms Large stamp. The top card has Tim Holtz Distress Ink - worn lipstick blended on some of the blossoms and a touch of ice stickles - this card is a Kaszazz Demo Card. The bottom card has been coloured using smooch ink for the branch and chalk for the blossoms - this card was originally designed by the very talented Rachel Witthaus. Check out her blog at http://iheartstampnscrap.blogspot.com/ .  I have adapted this card with the stamped image double mounted onto ivory card before attaching to the backing card.  Once again - the photos do not do the cards justice.

Yr 12 Formal Candle

Hi All,  I am on my way to get my hair done for my little sister's formal tonight and just couldn't help doing a quick post of the candle that I have just made her for tonight.  I have used Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Dusty Concord with the 1773LN Cute Letter Un-Cut Set (65) and 74092 ColorBox Mini - Metallic - Silver with the 610LF Dragonfly - Small .  The ribbons, candle and the base are not from Kaszazz - but the ribbons are what they used in the other formal decorations - so I wanted to keep it all tied together.
I am very happy with how it turned out - not bad for only my second attempt.

Circut Owl Birthday Card

I finally managed to take a photo of the card I made for my mum for her birthday.  The card was made using the Kaszazz SB Essentials range of card and the Sentiments cartridge on my cricut machine.  I scored the leaves in half so they gave the card a bit of a 3D nature to it.  Mum being a bit of an Owl fanatic just loves this card.

Stamped Candle

Hi Guys,  I know that this is not a Kaszazz stamp - but I just had to share this really simple idea with you all.  I learnt how to do stamped candles from a lovely lady called Jo Tritton at our last Ridgecrest Camp back in October.  I honestly thought that it was going to be hard - when really it is soooo simple.  You simply stamp your desired image onto white tissue paper and then trim with scissors, then place the stamped image onto a candle in the position you want then wrap the candle in a piece of wax pape to hold it in place.  You then gently heat with a heat gun and viola!  So simple.  I am planning on making a lot of these for teachers gifts etc this Christmas and even thought I could make one for my little Sister's YR 12 formal which is on this Friday using Dragonfly stamps.

Easy Rollagraph Frame

I learnt to make this really easy rollagraph frame at the last Scrap Me Happy weekend from my very talented downline, Patricia Bost.  (I must be a bit of a mean Team Leader though, because I made all my downlines attending  do a demo).
Anyway, Pat showed us all how to do really easy mitred corners using our rollagraph wheels,  turning them into these gorgeous frames.  Imagine the possibilities.... I have just ordered the new 59002 Butterflies jumbo wheel to make a 12x12 frame as a christmas present - so stand by for that post.
Pat is currently in the process of writing up the instructions for this workshop to submit to Kaszazz.  Good Luck Pat!

ATC's - A Bit of Bling

These are the amazing ATC's made from the recent A Bit of Bling! Ridgecrest Weekend held late October.
As you can see there is a lot of Kaszazz products used such as stamps, inks, punches, SB papers, sticky bling & pearls, design adhesives, glitter and the new Ezy-Press. The photo does not show all the sparkle and bling-i-ness of these cards.
