Card Ideas

The are some cards I have made recently to give away as gifts or have made to order for someone. The products I have used are listed below.


Birthday Card - The Dressing Room

I folded an A5 piece of card in half – took a slice on an angle from the top fold corner down to just above half on the right hand side. I used the piece I had sliced from the top for the inside top corner of the card. When the card is closed if looks like the picture is all as one. When opened you get that seperation look. (Clear as mud – I’ll do a You tube demo if this is not explained properly here.)

Awesome NEW Card Toppers for Children and Teenagers!!

Sometimes you just have a blank and you can’t dream up a card that would be suitable for a particular child or teen. These new toppers are just amazing and suit a range of personalities and styles. I am going to get at least one of each design for my personal store cupboard.

The designs are in the Toppers Category on the Store.

 Day Dreaming
 Cherry Kisses
 Teenage Kick’s
 Madison Avenue
 Wee Suzie s Garden
 Kool Kids
 Strawberry Wishes
 Spring Bringer *
 When I Grow Up *
 Cupcake Girls *

* Pre Order 

So far I have only purchased a few of the designs I have shown on the web site. I will be getting them all. At present I have a small number of some designs in stock but first indications from those who have seen them has been very encouraging. Before getting them on the site they are disappearing out the door. My distributor is going to continue bringing them in and so if one sells from the site or is showing  “Awaiting Stock” , pre order by sending me an email at and I will get them to you as soon as I can.

If you are just wanting these Toppers and making no other purchase feel free to email me and ask for a postal rate or allow me to cut them and send them via small courier bags  (at $3.50). You would then need to pay via a Bank Deposit rather than Visa. If that`s a problem let me know and I can work something that works for you.

 Take a peek below at some of te designs and see examples of cards made by the designers.

Cherry Kisses $7.50

A very Happy and Safe Christmas

After a day of Earthquakes here in Christchurch I thought maybe I shouldn`t wait until Christmas Eve to send out my Christmas Blessings in case we loose power again. One courier package awaits pick up today. Maybe the driver decided the East of Christchurch was a no go zone.

Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas, a Safe,healthy and awesome 2012.

New Products Coming!!

So, I had this great plan to keep adding to the BLOG every couple of days and I haven’t started out too well. Put it down to Earthquake brain or lack of motivation or…. whatever!!

Anyway………there is nothing to inspire you more than looking at new products and thinking about how to use them.

I have just added to the Online Store some Peel Off stickers similar to Peel Craft that I know are very popular with Card makers. Check these out both in the Sticker or Christmas category or just type Peel Off  into the search and they will pop up.

Also…….I found some beautiful Decoupage pages, Die Cuts and Toppers. I will put some photos below to wet your appetite but let me tell you, the photos don’t do them justice. Just ask the two ladies who came to my place on Friday morning for a craft session and didn’t really get too much done after looking at the new products. What are Toppers you ask? They are pages that have beautiful pictures on that you can cut out and add to your cards – not layered.

There are a couple of flower packs that I have added – these are limited as my distributor is no longer able to stock these.

I am trying to sort the cheapest way to mail/courier the A4 sheets of Decoupage and Toppers and once I have organised that I will get these up. Currently if I added them under our current courier service the cost would be $7 for just one sheet. Of course that is way too much BUT I’ll sort it and get these listed on the site very soon.

If you have a particular theme that you are interested email me and I will let you know if I have anything in that line or if I can get them.

So a sneak peek……….. (click on the pictures to enlarge)
