Elmo Punch ArtFor the ladybird, I started with the instuctions found at Chic' n Scratch, and went from there...

Elmo Punch ArtHere's the Elmo instructions as promised. Recently I had a stall at our local Primary School twilight gala, where you could make this bookmark or the ladybird one for $1. I chose these two because they don't require a large number of punches and they are easy for kids to assemble. The kids loved them (I sold 30 in two hours!) and I had a great time.

Well I got the Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set, and I really love it, especially with the watercolour pencils and glitter. Here are two cards that I created for my niece's birthdays at the end of September. The large paper clips with the Elmo and ladybird punch art perched on the top are bookmarks. Since I had made these bookmarks for their birthdays I decided to incorporate it into the cards - not as easy as I thought! However I did like the finished product and when you remove the bookmarks, the cards still look good.

We gave my brother-in-law a gift voucher for his birthday this month, in which the voucher was the shape and size of a credit card. A while ago I found these cards on Mary Fish's website, and decided to incorporate his gift into his birthday card...

I have been playing with the ribbon from the ribbon bundle promotion. I love the Certainly Celery and have used it quite a bit. I added it to the little thank you cards I gave to customers who placed orders this month:

I am doing a workshop next week with a friend and borrowed the Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set from her. This is one of the cards we are making at that workshop.

I found this card on Splitcoast Stampers that I really liked and decided have a go. It uses a stamp set I absolutely adore, Scribble This. I also used the new flower brads from the Spring Mini Catalogue and lovely designer paper in Pink Pirouette from Candy Lane.

Here is the Just Beachy stamp set from the Spring Mini Catalogue again. I really love this stamp set and have found it to be really versatile. This acetate box has the sun image stamped with Cotton White Stazon (also from the Spring Mini Catalogue). I stamped the jandals image around the outside in Rose Red on Very Vanilla and matched it with Pretty in Pink.
