Karin and her Studio

I just had to show you my friend Karin's Studio. This is just the best place to create all sorts of crafty projects. As you can see Karin has a place for everything she is a very talented lady, I went to her place on Tuesday and she showed us how to make a couple of cards.
Here is Karin surrounded by cupboards, its set out like a kitchen,

This is on the other side of the room
The table goes right down the middle of the room

These drawers hold lots and lots of flowers embellishments and pens and paper and bling and anything else you can think of.

Her husband made these shelves for her stamps and I just love the way she has all of her ribbon hanging on the back of the door, she has lots more ribbon on spools in drawers. So guess what I have started to do with my ribbon?

This is from the other end of the room and with Denise in the picture as well.

Just thought I would show you what I am getting hopefully in the next week.
My New Spellbinders Grand Callibar.
Now I just have to buy the bigger dies to use in it.
Oh the life of a scrapbooker, cardmaker etc is never dull with all the gadgets we can buy.

Well hope you enjoy Karin's Studio as much as I did and will continue to do as I make Cards with her.
Cheers Shelley

This one is for Karin
Friendship is Fun
Friendship is Cool
Friendship Helps Me Become
A Better Person
Like You !

Jessie's 20th Birthday Card

I made this card using the Cricut Lite Cartridge Bloom. I used the Rose and cut it out in 2 sizes and made 20 of them, used the Rose Cuttlebug and then Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I have been having fun making easel Calendars so this time I made this one into an easel card.
I used my Nesabilities and Kaiser Paper for the background colour
The number 20 I coloured chipboard with a green Stampin Up Marker.
I have already been asked to make up 4 kits for a couple of Friends so I am excited about that.

Happy Birthday Jessie
Cheers for now Shelley

Mrs Kaiser at Kaisercraft and Card for Alyssa

Well Tracey and I were lucky enough to meet Mr and Mrs Kaiser and there 4 Boys today at the Browns Plains Outlet Store, we got to make a little Christmas Tree and chat with her about Kaiser and her passion with there overseas causes.  For every $10 you spend on samples, seconds and discontinued lines at their Factory outlet, over $9 goes to help disadvantaged children!
So here we are with the whole Family.
My heart also goes out to Tereesa, Peter and the Boys and especially Alyssa who is still in hospital and the doctors are working around the clock to get her better. I am of to see her tomorrow so I thought I would make her a card to help cheer her up.
This is a stamp from Penny Black called Thinking of You.

I am not realy good with the fancy colouring but I think she will like it.

So get well very soon Alyssa we miss your cards on the blog.
Lots of cuddles sent your way from lots of your blog Friends.

Cricut Cartridge Rock Princess

I made these for Kirra for her 5th Birthday Party 'Rock Star' theme so I have put the Rock Princess Cartridge to good use. She has stil got the Princess and Castle that I made from the Paper Dolls Cartridge from a few years ago, so I thought I would put them up to.
These are for her 5th Birthday.

And this is what I did for her 3rd Birthday

Just make them all fit to page and then they are big enough to put up on the wall.
We had the best Rock Star Party
Happy Birthday Kirra you Rock...
Jessie and Kirra

Well what a lovely morning we had on  Friday for Tracey's 50th Birthday. Lola, Anna, Tereesa, Leanne and myself all celebrated with a 'High Tea' at ' Tea and Niceties on Mt Tamborine'. It was so lovely to be able to spend the morning with Tracey and celebrate with her and yes I can hear you all saying that she is to young and gorgeous to be 50 and age is only a number and she is such a beautiful person, with a loving husband Paul and her two beautiful  daughter's Jordyn and Tori and her gorgeous two sons Jay and Matt. And with the love from them and her special friends that's what keeps her looking so young.
This is what the room looks like when you walk in just beautiful.
And of course the food.
Don't you just love all the little sandwiches and cakes.
Tracey getting lots of pressie's
