Origami Gift Box

My beautiful friend Kylie found this tutorial (on splitcoaststampers I think). It was written by the very talented Vicki Hook. The finished size of the box is about 3" square. Perfect for little gifts.

This is what it looks like open.

I will try to find out exactly where Kylie found this tutorial and I will post the details. Or if you like, just send me an email and I will forward a copy to you. This really took no time at all to complete. I finished mine off with some ribbon, flowers and embelishments from my own stash and some gorgeous DCWV paper.

Have a great weekend, Take care xo Jackie

Little Angels

Quite a while ago, my daughter asked me to find some cute colouring pages from the internet. I can't for the life of me, remember where I found this image. I only came across it a couple of weeks ago in a pile of papers I was going through and thought what a cute little card it would make. I adore their little faces and the little birds are just darling. If I do come across where I found it, I will post the details for you.

I hope you like it. Till next time, take care xo Jackie

Another Digi Image

Here is a card I made for my daughter Erin to give to one of her very special teachers. As soon as I saw this image, I knew I just had to have it. Her name is Shaya and she is from Victoria Case. Her digital images are incredible. I love that you don't have to wait for the postie to deliver them, you receive them instantly.

This was just a quick post today. My best friend Kylie will be here shortly. I am babysitting her gorgeous children this afternoon, as she and her partner Phil are attending Nikita and Scott's wedding up in the Hunter Valley Wineries.

I just want to thank all the lovely ladies who have left me comment. I really love hearing from each and everyone of you and I appreciate everything you say.

Take care xo Jackie

Card With Drawer

I found this amazing tutorial here, for this little box. I had so much fun making it. I was a little confused with the measurements at first, but soon realised that when there is an (*) just make is an (x) and the (, )is a (.) For example you will see a measurement for 13,4*13,4cm. this should read 13.4cm x 13.4cm This will all make sense when you check out the original tutorial. I used my copic markers and the delightful Miss Anya stamp from Greeting Farm. The flowers were some that my beautiful Nan gave me quite a while ago.

Millie the Christmas Mouse

As promised, here is another gorgeous digi image. This little baby is called Millie. I purchased it from the digi stamp boutique. I coloured her using my copic markers and used some papers from Bizzy Becs. It's a little hard to see, but I have dazzling diamonds for the snow at her feet and I also added it to the white parts on her dress. I hope you like her.

Take care xo Jackie

Digi Stamps

With the whether being so horrible lately, I have been able to rug up and get some time to myself and make a couple of cards. I have found the wonderful world of digital stamping. I was a bit dubious about it at first. I searched the web and found some fantastic sites. Once you purchase them, you download them and keep them in a file and can use them over again, just like rubber stamps, except they don't take up any space lol..having said that, I haven't converted to them totally, I still love the hands on approach with rubber and ink.

Here are just a couple of images I have been working on lately.

This little sweetie is called Shaela. For this card I used
Cardstock: SU Taken with teal and whisper white
Stamps: Best Yet hostess set level 1 and Scribble jumbo wheel
Other: Copic markers, dazzling diamonds, Martha Steward border punch, ticket punch, flowers, teal half pearls and rhinestones.

I'm madly in love with all the little Swiss Pixies at the moment. This is the adorable little Leisel. This image is not a digital image (although you can purchase her digitally). I had forgotten that I had this cardstock. I think I need to sit down one day soon and re-acquaint my self with my stash. lol..

I want to thank all the lovely ladies who sent their best wishes to my daughter Erin for her fantastic result of achieving Dux for yr 12. She was so excited to think that people she had never met, were congratulating her. You truly are very thoughtful and I thank you.

I will be back in a couple of days with a couple more digi images. Let me know what you think. I appreciate each and every comment.

Till next time, take care xo Jackie

Congratulations Erin

My beautiful daughter Erin had her year 12 presentation today AND she received the award for Dux of the year. We are so extremely proud of her. Anyone who knows Erin, knows how hard she studies and applies herself to everything in her life (except keeping her bedroom She throughly deserves this award. Now she has the huge task of sitting her HSC after the holidays. I have no doubt that she will pass with flying colours. Congratulations sweetheart, I love you so very much.

Here is the card I made for her. We are all going out for a very special dinner tonight to celebrate.

Till next time, take care xo Jackie

Birthday card for Kerri-Anne

Hello there. Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog. Here is the card I made for my good friend Kerri-Anne. Her birthday is tomorrow, 1st October. I hope you have a lovely day my dear friend. It's a little hard to see, but I have embossed the butterfly with a gorgeous teal glitter embossing powder. The friend circle is embossed and coloured with Stampin' Up! taken with teal marker. I have been neglecting my poor stamps lately as I am madly in love with my Copics and just can't get enough of them. As a very dear friend of mine always says' "It's a disease"... Hi Phil.. anyway, here is my attempt at getting back into stamping. For this card is used the following:

Stamps: Simple Friendship
Card Stock: Taken with Teal, Whisper White and Basic Black
Ink: Taken with Teal, Basic Black
Other: Teal embossing powder, black satin ribbon, Martha Stewart Valentine border punch, dimensionals.

A while ago, I purchased a tutorial from the very inspirational Becky Roberts at Inking Idaho. She has the most amazing tutorials and they are very easy to follow.

This is from the Purse-onally Perfect Notes tutorial. I have only made the purse and am hoping to make the cards to go inside sooner rather than later, lol. It was sooo much fun. Check out her blog here. She has many more tutorial and they are all fantastic.

For this project I used:
Card Stock: Basic Grey textured cs, Urban Oasis DSP, Sahara Sand and Whisper White
Stamp: Fifth Avenue Floral
Ink: Black Stazon, Baja Breeze
Other: Vintage Brads, Clear Rhinestone Brad, Square Punch, Sticky Strip.

Thank you to all the lovely ladies for taking time and leaving me encouraging comments. I appreciate each and every one of them.

Till next time, take care xo Jackie
