I didn't think I was going to get time to do the Mojo Monday this week. But as you can see I It was a fun sketch this week and It seen to take ages to put together. I picked washington apple DSP and teamed that up with riding hood red and bashful blue. My garden whimsy hasn't seen ink for a while so out it came. For some reason I couldn't get the colours to photograph very well but never mind what you see is what you Check out all the other fantastic entries here. Time I cleaned up and went to bed:)

Cute cube box

This is a cube box I made from one of the Ustamp templates. I am way behind in making the projects, I was planing to finish a different project every couple of days but life happened and the time has been slipping by. But I have all the PDF's saved so I will end up making them all some day soon. As you can see I have used Parisian breeze specialty DSP out of the new mini and a baja breeze corduroy button. Petal pizzzazz just happened to be out and went perfect. I hope to find some time in the next couple of days to finish off a few things I have been working on, so check back soon:)

My stationary purse

I had such fun designing this stationary purse for one of my UStamp projects. It folds out and holds four card and envelopes. I was glad to see everyone enjoyed making their own, and it was fantastic to receive all the great comments. I will be running a few classes on this stationary purse, so if you would like to make one and get the instructions just send me an email and I can book you in for a class, Don't worry if you don't live in New Plymouth I can send you a class kit with instructions so you can complete it at home. I will be sad when this round of UStamp finishes, I have made some fantastic new friends from all over the world and I am loving the live chat rooms that are open 24-7. There is always someone to chat to what ever the time. But the excellent news is the next one won't be far off!!!
Thanks for stopping by:)

6x6 mini scrapbook

Wow no posts in a week then 2 in 1 day that's erratic!lol.
Anyway how exciting UStamp is well under way and I have started to recreate some of the projects. The first project was a 6x6 mini scrapbook by Jen Picard from Canada. Her creation was awesome, however I have changed all the colours and stamps just to make it my own. This is a fun little project, If you would like to recreate it you can still join UStamp to get all the templates and instructions. Go here if you want to sign up. I used "all in the family" on the front cover. I hadn't inked up this set since I got it, not sure why but I think I will use it again soon it was soooo much fun. And did you notice the Baja breeze corduroy buttons fresh out of the new mini pre order(LOVE these). I will be running some classes with some of the USamp projects. If you think you might be interested email me . Well must go, my home made chicken and avocado pizza is calling me. Thanks for stopping by:)

Mojo Monday # 94

I know its Sunday but at least I got Mojo Pink is not normally one of the colours I use often but I wanted to use the sweet always paper and stamp set. Pretty in pink and regal rose are the pinks I uses and I added a bit of chocolate chip just so it wasn't too pink. I had a new packet of 1/2 pearls so I added them to the bird and flower. This is the first time I have inked up this set and I don't know why, I think I kinda for got about it. I think I better have a look and see if there's any other sets I haven't used yet. Check out all the other entries here. I have a 6x6 mini scrapbook to post a little today so check back later to have a look. Hope you are all having a great weekend.

Inspiration Challenge # 9

I must say when I saw the picture for the inspiration I thought wow this is going to be a hard one and it was. I had a look through my stash of random papers and thought I'd use this one because it had some flecks through it. The first thing that caught my eye in the photo was the tea pot, so I used a black button so it would stand out. I decided to use rose red, whisper white with a bit of black to go with my pattern paper. The stamp set is 'One of a kind'. Check out all the other entries here. Thanks for stopping by!
