I found....

that some time ago I designed an Easter kit :) I was searching for a kit to use for a layout I am working on for Sharon using RM00050, (but you will have to wait to see that), and it turned up in my search! So I thought this kit could be my next giveaway! What do you think??




In the meantime, I have the download link to my first Add-on created using "WildFlower" kit. This is a set of Bragbook pages. Just open in your photo editing software, drag in your photo under the bragbook page, resize if necessary and print!


Link to download BragBook Album HERE Link removed. Password if required is "springtime" without the quotes. Please leave me a comment if you download! I love reading them. AND.... I have 32 Followers now.. so very excited by this figure LOL

Have a great day wherever you are!

I have been busy....

I have been busy getting a head start on my CT work for April :)

This Easter Card has being created using this gorgeous digital cutter file, TM00115 - Easter Card currently available, for 2 more days, at Visual Designs by Chris in their March Grab Bag. Hurry and pick up this Grab Bag before the end of the month. 12 files for just $7.00. After the end of the month, the file will go into Tina's Store. I have added Dimensional Magic to the title and Stickles to the Cross.


For this gorgeous Easter treat bag, I have used Sharon Mobley's RM00044 - Bunny Bag for this project. I love the eyes, so huge! This is a digital cutter file suitable for Cricut, Pazzles, Klic N Kut and so on. An easy to cut file to make a cute Easter treat bag for your child(ren) this Easter.


This layout uses digital personal cutter files CD00682 - Panda Bear that was a file available in a QMC that Chris runs in her Store on a quarterly basis. A new QMC has just hit the Store and, at $10 for 20 plus files, is fantastic value. Adelaide Zoo (South Australia) has recently taken on a pair of Giant Pandas and this file was perfect. Designed to show that cutter (Cricut, Pazzles, Klic N Kut etc) files can be used digitally!


Thanks for looking!

Last Installment for freebie kit!

Today I have the last link for the WildFlowers kit freebie. Make sure you come back later in the week as I have a couple of add-ons for you using this kit.

We had an exciting experience yesterday. Called outside by Mollie barking loudly, eventually Nicholas and I went to investigate. As Nicholas had no shoes on, I followed Mollie into the back paddock and he went to get his shoes. Well, a surprise awaited me. Mollie had bailed up a 4 foot long King Brown SNAKE!!!!!!! it has been a while since I have discovered a snake that close to the house and it was really very cross with Mollie barking in it's face!

Nicholas came out the back door, so as I heard it bang I yelled for him to get his Dad, Gary, who needed shoes and a spade! Fortunately, Nicholas understood straight away my meaning and ran off. Even Gary managed a bit of a spurt and was at my side quite quickly. It took several thumps with the spade to get this snake (yes I hear you all going "poor snake". I have no problem with them out in the the wild, but not a few feet away from my back door is NOT on!). Mollie was really good at barking and distracting the snake, but it did have a go at her and the spade. Very scary, it was huge, and it took ages for it to stop wriggling. Still gives me the willies just typing the story!

well, that is my news for today!

Have a great day wherever you are!

BIG news! and next installment for "WildFlowers" kit

I have BIG news. Shelly from Paperthreads and Shelly's Art asked me to become a member of her CDT. I am excited about working with her, she has great files and a wonderful Creative Team.


I have been creating a few Card templates for the Card Challenge over at Paperthreads and I used the April template as a basis for a card created digitally using Shelly's SS00029 - Cupcake Card file. I also used Shelly's SS00061 - Dotted Fun Sentiments for the Happy Birthday. I wasn't going to show this off yet, but as Shelly has already introduced me on her Blog, I am going to post it here as well LOL


The sentiment, tag, cupcake, flower and candle are all personal cutter files and, as you can see, they all work really well in your digital photo software. I work with PSCS3 and all the layers have had styles applied.

Spring

I have been working on another Card Template. I was inspired to create this card looking through my latest Cardmaking magazine and wanted to work with Diana's DW00241 -Butterfly file.

This is the result.


I am so happy with this card, I love the colours and although the Butterflies were a fiddle as I made them so small, they turned out really well.


Have a great day wherever you are!

Card using RM00043 - You Hold The Key

I had to laugh at myself when I started creating this card.... my DH hasn't been lucky enough to receive many Valentine's cards from me, and now I am getting in early for next year LOL

I have used Sharon's RM00043 - You Hold The Key for this card. Even though I shrank the file ever so slightly, it cut really well. I love the chain.... I cut the back for this piece out of gray glitter card and then the chain front from black paper! worked really well :)

Thanks for looking,

cheers, caz

Part Four of "Cookin' Up A Storm" kit

Hi there all, hope the week is going well for you. Hubby and I are having issues with #$%^&* Trojans and Malware. DH has already redone his computer from scratch and still having issues. Why can't these people inventing these things use their skills for "good" instead of "evil" !

The last installment of this kit is available today, and if you are quick, you will be able to snag parts One through Three as well as I haven't had the time to remove the links yet.


Link to download Part Four HERE Link removed. Password if required is "delicious" . Please leave a comment if you download, it doesn't take a lot to say Thanks, and I really appreciate it!

Remember to keep checking as I have a Add-on for this kit.... a set of BragBook pages already for you to use and print! Giveaway coming soon!

New Layout using TM00006 - College Bound


This card has been created using Tina's TM00006 - College Bound digital personal cutter file. This file was designed for a College Bound person, but I decided to leave off the rest of the title, and now I can use it to celebrate the getting of a licence to drive or the purchase of a new car!






Once I know what I am going to use the card for, I will complete the inside sentiment!

Have a great day wherever you are!

Double layout using CD00583

The beginning of a new month also brings about new projects for my commitments as a member of various Creative teams!

So to start of the month, I have created a double layout using Chris Durnan's CD00583 - Kangaroo with Sparkle , just one of the many Animals with Sparkle files that Chris has created.


These are photos taken from a visit we did back when I was doing Childcare. We took the children on an excursion to a Kangaroo Sanctuary, in Yongala in Mid North South Australia, where the children were able to feed the Roos and get up really close to these gorgeous creatures. We even saw a few Joeys (baby kangaroo) which the children thought was wonderful.


This file from Chris was perfect for this layout! I love the way the Sparkle allows the background to show through. This is a digital personal cutter file, but has been used here on a digital layout, and worked perfectly!

Thanks for looking,

Have a great day wherever you are!
