Etsy Made Local Event - 25 November 2017 9am - 3pm EPIC

I am thrilled to be a part of the 'Etsy Made Local Canberra' event again. It has been two years since the last event, so I have had lots of time to prepare heaps of hand-crafted items to sell. I will have a range of trendy greeting cards, gift tags and boxes, framed pictures and many other items.

There will be over 100 stalls/workshops, live music, face painting, food and drink vendors and a ATM on site. Entry is by a gold coin donation with all proceeds going to the Whisker Woods Sanctuary.

So lock in the date and come and check out all the wonderful stalls at Etsy Made Local Canberra.

Pretty Pines Christmas Cards

I love the simplicity of these cards and the earthy tones that were used. These cards are very easy to make and you can change the look just by varying the type of bow used.

Santa's Sleigh Christmas Z-fold Card

So Christmas is a little over ten weeks away, so it is definitely time for me to start sharing some Christmas cards, like the amazing one below.

I got my inspiration from Chloe Evans' card that she made a little while back, which is absolutely stunning, so I knew I had to case it. I did make a few subtle changes to the sled and presents and I also added a sentiment to finish the card off.

I had a lot of fun making this card, but it did take quite some time to complete.





Fox Builder Baby Card

I have another card that showcases the versatility of the "Fox Builder Punch" that I wanted to share. I cased the card from Valerie Moody who cased the bear from Nicole Kunzig.

As soon as I saw the cute little bear, I knew I had to make some cute baby cards with it. I did alter my bear by giving him 2 paws/arms, as I felt this was missing and made the bear complete.

A Nice Cuppa Card

Is there someone in your life who loves a cuppa, then this is the perfect card for them. You can change the sentiment to suit a tea or a coffee drinker.

I love how simple and clean this card looks and it's super quick and easy to make.

Masculine Fishing Card

Father's day is just around the corner, so I wanted to share a cascade card that I made a couple of years ago, using the "By the Tide" stamp set which is now retired. You can find my cascade card instructions here, please ensure you scroll down to the bottom of the page.

I made the fishing rods by hand, using a long strip of card stock and several circle punches which I used for the reel and to thread the bakers twine through so that it would resemble fishing line.

I did plenty of fussing cutting for the fish and sea horses, which took a bit of time, but made the end result well worth it.

Detailed Floral Thinlits Card

The Stampin Up detailed floral thinlits makes a perfect wedding or engagement card. Bellow are a couple of versions on how to use the dies differently. I prefer to use rich colours, like night of navy or fresh fig against white, as it really make the detail in the flowers stand out.
