The talented Deb from Doozey Chicks has been on fire lately and created two fabulous new kits.  The one we are focusing on today is “For the Boys” and it contains everything you need to make 10  fabulous cards covering boys from babies to the more mature gentleman.
You even get a bonus tag you can pop on a bottle of something yummy (maybe even alcoholic) and a bonus set of dies for FREE in the kit. 
All our kits come complete with colour photos, cards, envelopes, paper, card, die cuts and embellishments to complete the cards.  If you are local, you might like to make the most of our free scrap and chat sessions (you can find them on our blog here under the classes / events tab) and work with the real life samples in front of you.
Great for camping, caravanning, weekend get aways or just to save you thinking!!!
This kit is available for just $45.00 while stocks last.

card kits, florentine paper


Today I thought I would share with you the inspiration behind some of the Italian card kits 
that I’ve have created this year.
The first is the TUSCAN range and if you’ve ever watched the movie “Under the Tuscan Sun”, you’ll understand why.

 As many of you know, since I married a gorgeous Australian man with Italian parents, we made
a point of visiting his parents’ country and hometown a few times and not only did their gorgeous Florentine papers excite me, but the scenery gave me inspiration for the collections.

The Tuscan card kit reflects the gorgeous gold of the fields while the green represents the tall Italian Cypress trees that often line the long winding driveways and roads on properties.
Then we move onto the AMALFI coast inspired range.  The Amalfi coast on the west coast of Italy
has waters  that reflect the most stunning shades of teal and turqoise.
The water itself is crystal clear but the colours have such depth as the water deepens.

And of course as the sun hits it, the shades of colour become even more stunning. 

Not only does Italy have some amazing coastline to explore, but the tiny towns all have their own unique styles and traditions. 
Pienza, like many other Italian towns abounds with red geraniums and poppies and the reds and flora inspired this kit.
Many of the farms in Italy like this one are actually part of the Agriturismo and as such offer a range of accommodation and or  cooking / dining experiences.  Well worth checking out.

Hope you like them and if not, at least enjoy the photos of some 
gorgeous parts of our fabulous planet.
Have a great day,

Be Merry, bling cards, card kits, Couture Creations, Monochromatic cards


If you like the look of monochromatics for Christmas but still want a touch of classic,
try this kit created by Sharon Bernardi.   It uses the  beautiful Couture Creations Be Merry monochromatic range with reversible papers so you choose the lighter or darker pattern, and combines it with a perfect hint of red.
For only $40.00 this kit comes with full cutting guide, some step by step pics to help with fussy bits, a full 6×6 paper pad, full ephemera pack, full pack of adhesive rhinestones, coloured lace flower, die cuts, flowers, pearl cabochon and more.  
Perfect to take on the road as you only need a small trimmer and adhesives to complete it.
Best of all, when you’ve made these 9 cards, you’ll have enough paper  and ephemera to make another 9 just by adding your own embellishments.
 Sometimes a touch of bling is all you need and since we now carry it in continuous lengths in 4 different sizes at a price all of us can afford.
At only $3.50 / metre, this bling adds a special touch of class and elegance to any project.  
 Combine lengths of bling with adhesive rhinestones on your die cuts and you’ve got a winning combination.

 Die cuts in red glitter and red cardstock have been added to these cards to tie the colour in.  If you have flowers that don’t have silver centres, hold back the petals and colour them with a pen or some ink from an inkpad refill by using a fine brush.

And of course, tiny bows with fine satin held add some texture and tie your matting colour in perfectly.
Hope you’re getting all your Christmas cards achieved ~ Unlike some of us!
