Simon & Esther’s Wedding

Back in August I had the privilege of photographing my neighbour’s son’s wedding.  Simon & Esther had a lovely church wedding with a simple afternoon tea reception at the church & then photos down at Wellington Point here in Brisbane.

My card:

This was my first wedding to photograph. Here is some of my photography of the lovely couple

& the bridal party

Diamond Wedding Anniversary

I had the pleasure of making a special card for my lovely neighbours Robyn & Steve on the weekend.  It was their parent’s 60th Wedding Anniversay…. how cool is that…. 60yrs married!

Robyn mentioned her theme for their little party was red & white, so I set about making a card that would suit her colour scheme.

I put a clear rhinestone brad in the centre of the bow…. my DIAMOND on the card!

What do you think – I quickly made it in between cooking our dinner….. lol

Get Well Mum

My Mum has just had knee replacement surgery this week, this is my Get Well card.  

I thought I’d give her some flowers that would last! So I went with the idea of my Valentine’s flowers and added a heart punch flower.

Card: Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Very Vanilla

Until later, happy stampin’


Thought I’d share what we made in our Valentine’s class last weekend.

and a little chocolate box which held 4 Ferrero Rocher chocolates!

I used some Iridescent Ice on the big hearts just to give a bit of shimmer & bling to the card & box and attached the hearts along the centre after folding them to give them a flutter effect.

We also made an extra card

Happy Father’s Day

Justing hoping all the Father’s out there had a very HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!!!

Best wishes especially to my Dad – Nev.  Also to Dave’s Dad – Nev (yep two of them in the family!) & his step dad Mick.

Thought I’d share my Father’s Day gifts

I filled the BBQ with chocolates & also managed to fit in  large Set For Life Casket tickets.


I actually got this tutorial over at Stamping Addict – I found her template a bit little for what I wanted, so sat down & made my own template – I’m happy with the larger size.  I then upscaled the card to a A5 size.

Here is my BBQ (the big one) & the original BBQ size (4″ in height), I probably made mine a bit too tall for the proportions, so I’m going to make another one just a fraction smaller.

Here are some other views:

Aussie Cards for Sale – My Expression of Interest

I found Aussie Cards for Sale a little while ago, it’s a wonderful website specialising in Australian handmade cards for all occasions.  

I had a go at trying to see if Alicia would be interested in my cards, but at the time she had enough designers stocking her website.  But I have recently found out she’s looking for more designers, so I’m biting the bullet and showing my interest to become one of her card makers.

I have no idea which of my cards to include so I decided on showing lots…  Here are some cards I’m submitting for consideration:









Do you think I had some better samples that I’ve blogged previously??

Oh well fingers crossed.

Until later, happy stampin’
