Laughing Lola Cards

Here are a couple of cards I created using the CTMH Laughing Lola Paper Packet.

This Wedding Card was for a wedding I attended on Friday ... now the happy couple have the card, I can share it with you :-)

It also uses the following products:
     Frame Flair Stamp Set
     Art Philosophy Cricut Collection - to perfectly cut out the frame and the mat
     Sparkles Flourishes
     Outdoor Denim Exclusive Ink Stamp Pad

The other card I made is just a fun card, to send to a friend to brighten their day ...

This card also uses:
     Frame Flair Stamp Set for the frame
     Art Philosophy Cricut Collection - to perfectly cut out the frame and the mat and to create the fabulous paper flowers
     Country Born Stamp Set for the "Happiness is Homemade" sentiment
     Gypsy Exclusive Ink Stamp Pad

For more of these fabulous products take a look at the online shop on my website at or click on the shopping cart link to your right.  I'd love to see you there.

Paper Transfer to Canvas

Months and months ago I saw this technique where a photo was transferred to a canvas using gesso. It was very cool :-)
I thought that this might be fun to do with papers to create a background on the canvas to add photos and embellish.  This is what I came up with ...

I have used the Close to My Heart (CTMH) Chantilly Collection to create this canvas.  I love these papers. If you would like to order these or any other CTMH products you can go to my website and order directly there.  I would love to help you.
If you would like the instruction sheet to create your own canvas you can download the instructions from here.
That's all from the ScrapCave tonight.

Getting Back my Mojo ...

Wow ... way over 12 months since I started this, and it didn't last very long!!
But all that is about to change :-)

I have joined a fantastic NEW Stamping and Scrapbooking Company that has just expanded their business into Australia.  They have been going strong in the US for 30 YEARS.  I first saw their products years ago, when some US friends sent me some of their ideas books ... I am soooo excited to be able to FINALLY have these products here on our doorstep.

Close to My Heart is finally here :-)

Please go to my website - -  and have a look at their fantastic products.  The choices are limited at the moment, but will increase after 15th August when the Official Launch has begun.  As of February 2014 we will have access to ALL the products that the US Consultants and customers have ... how exciting is that?

I am (not very patiently) waiting for my kit to arrive, so I can finally play with my new toys.
When I do, I will post the results here.  Keep coming back here, as I plan to share with you often.

In the meantime, here are a few cards I have made, as my mojo has started to return.
The stamps are from:

 Saturated Canary (digital stamp)... I just love her drawings, don't you?

Magnolia ...

and Gorjuss Girls.

That's all from the ScrapCave tonight.
