40 Ferrero Rocher's

Doesn't this one make you just put on weight by just looking at it. It was so tempting to each just a few while I made it but I needed 40 of them so I couldn't. I grew up with Janny-Lou and she turned 40 and I didn't know what to give her so I decided to make this instead of a pressie. She loved it and so did everyone else. ( I think they just wanted to eat the flowers).

Using layers of Gold and Brown Tissue paper that I cut out with my Nestabillities Scalloped Circles, because the paper is so thin I could cut out a few at a time by folding the paper. I then threaded them onto a skewer stick and then attached the chocolate. They are then randomly put into a foam brick in the box and then I just filled it with the green paper and added a few pearl and flower stems.
I hope she doesn't eat them as it would be a shame to pull it all apart.
Enjoy Shelley

Sweet 16 Birthday Card

My son's girlfriend Ashley turned 16 this week and I made her this card, I only used Martha Stewart All Occasions Cake Art Cricut Cartridge to make the ballons, writing and numbers. It really is a great Cartridge and not just for making real cakes.
I made it into an easle card so she can see the balloons.

I added extra Kindy Glitz to the balloons to make them really sparkle.
Cheers Shelley

Just a few Cards

Hello these are just a few of the Cards that I made on Wenesday at Moorooka Callagriphic Arts and then Thursday at Michelle's Cards & Stamps.
This one is done with Nestabilities, and just the right paper and you have a birthday card.
EK Success Punch and Nestabilites

This one is very simple using the Cuttlebug and a few square's a bit of ribbon and the lovley Graphic 45 Once Upon A Springtime Collection paper.
Go and see Renata at Moorooka she has lots of new papers and is now keeping Martha Stewart Punches.

The next 5 are from today's class with Robyn we used Nestabiliities Heart Shapes

This one is stamped and we then the dress is cut out of paper. We have used Distress Ink Pads and glitter.

Copic Markers were used for this one and we had to stamp the butterfly 4 times and cut it out 3 times to get this effect.

Once again this is stamped and cut out twice and then colured with Distress Ink and a Blender Pen

This one is my Favorite, its a Sizzix Die Cut for the bird and the bird cage.
The paper in the background is actually stamped with Kaiser's English Rose Stamp Set and then coloured in with a blender pen and using the Distressed Ink Pads.

Hope you enjoy looking at these as much as I enjoyed making them.

My best Friend lost her Dad last week and one of my other Friends has phoned, text or emailed me nearly everyday to see how we are all coping so this little verse is for her.
'Uncle Pete' you are forever in our hearts.

For all you do, for who you are, I will be forever grateful you are in my life."

Scrap For A Cause

Well I had a wonderful day today at Kaisercraft Browns Plains. They ran a fundraiser for the flood victims, we did page layouts, off the page albums etc and cards and all of these are being donated to Queensland flood victims to have for there photos. One of the Ladies I was talking to told me her friend has lost everything including all of her Craft room, yes the whole lot. Can you imagine throwing out all of your papers because they are dirty and wet and ribbons, flowers, everything. Some things they have been able to save but not a lot.
Here are a couple of the things that I made today. Some of these I started last week so I could get a few things made.
Wall hangings, one for a boys room and one for a girls room and they can just add there photos.

I had a couple of these albums already at home so I started them early.

These next two are layouts done with Christmas Carnival.
These are pretty simple as I was running out of time.

Another little book
One of the Ladies did this Tray in the Tea Cup Paper.

We had a couple of Kaiser items that had already been made that we could bid on in the auction. This one wasn't one of them but I did bid on it and guess what.

One of the Ladies had actually made this for her friend who was also there for her Birthday and she gave it to Kaiser to auction and she is going to make her another one.

So here I am with my box of Chocolate Paper Roses, I told the girls I only wanted it for the idea of how to make them.
For the lucky people who will benefit from the money we raised and the products they will receive it was a pleasure to make these and raise some money for you.
