Cards for an order

I had to make some cards for an order that took me almost a month to make 16 cards, I normally pump out about 20 cards a night but these were of varying designs and elements.

LOC Christmas Ornament

This is not the original idea I had but
it evolved because of a few hiccups 
and I had to hide some flaws LOL

 Close up of the flowers I tried twisting to give it some
depth but the cardstock is really strong
(and the wind blew just as I took the close up so
the picture looks crooked LOL)
Inside view
All I did was take elements of my Christmas card
and turn it into a 3D ornament
Stamps I used are from Layers of Colours
Cardstock is Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White and Basic Black
from Stampin Up
Tombows Green and Red markers
Liquid Pearls Ruby red
Spellbinders Shapeabilities Fancy Tags Three
Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Sixteen 
which is made for the Poinsettia Frame
Seam Binding ribbon
Xyron 5" Creative Station adhesive

Cardstock is Daffodil Delight, Black.
Printed paper is from Black Market Paper Society-Letters from Paradise
Stamp is StampIt Australia-Elegant Lady 1456E coloured with H20s

Stockings for Soldiers


3000 Christmas cards made as at 1st August 2012

Many of you know that I make cards and contribute to the military that are deployed overseas. This year I am going onboard and coordinating the card section of  
Stockings for Soldiers Project 
co-ordinated by Selena Smith and Michelle Potter
on behalf of our Soldiers based mainly in Townsville, Queensland.
Last year they sent out 1550 boxes to our Military.
This year they are sending 3000. In the small way that I can contribute, I will be making Christmas Cards for the deployed.

You are very welcome to contribute as well. You can send your cards to me no later than the 31st August 2012 so they can be forwarded onto Selena and Michelle to start the public signing process.

The cards need to be 10cm x 10cm single sided, i.e no folds  so they can be hung on metal walls/lockers with magnets (do not attach magnets to them-the recipients will put it on themselves). Decorate the front only. 

Here is a video via Channel 9 about the boxes that were sent in 2011 which is the first year this has been done.

Feel free to EMAIL me if you have any questions
A huge THANK YOU to contributors to date

Cards to Share

Made these cards last week

I thought I'd share this with all the crafters
10. You're contemplating building an addition onto the house to hold it all
9. Your children sleep in the kitchen because they're scared of the
 'supply monster' looking in their dark rooms
8. You open the medicine cabinet to get an aspirin and suddenly you have 
a sink full of beads...and an aspirin bottle full of the same.
7. You can't find your curling iron, so you've taken to hot gluing your bangs in place
6. Your latest batch of cupcakes look awesome..but then you realise it's because 
you used plastic glitter instead of sprinkles.
5. You hold a destash sale, get rid of all of it, and it now looks like you moved out.
4. You accidentally pack paper mache' fruit for your child's lunch..which 
goes well with that needle felted 'sandwich' they got last week.
3. "Romantic Nights" are often ruined by finding pairs of pliers
or skeins of yarn in the bed.
2. Your family has accepted the fact that their inheritance will be paid
 in beads, sequins and scrapbook paper.
1. The local craft store refers people to your house when they run out of something

Friday Fences #24

I am moving all my photography posts to this blog HERE
Surfers Paradise up on the Gold Coast, this view from our apartment showing the hotel across the road with a 12 foot fence blocking out the street view for hotel guests. We could see them all in their balcony and frolicking in the pool area as we were on the 5th level. 
I love that hotel, looks like a mini palace to me.
Check out more fences at Jan's
