I have a bit of news..... I have a Facebook page!! I'm finally there in the social world with a FB page and anInstagram page!! One of the main reasons for this is that I'm hugely into WEAVING!!
You know that old 70's rage with macrame and weaving, well it's pretty hot in the crafting world and I've caught the bug!! Of course you'll still see my cards from time to time but my main crafty outlet is sitting on the couch with loom on the lap weaving!! Oh how I'm loving it!!!
If you live in Launceston, Tasmania and pop into a selected few unique stores you will see my little pieces of art for sale! Yes you can buy your very own Alarnee Creations wall hanging! Would be soooo excited if you did!! SO like my page and follow me as there is a fun journey to be had!
Just showing you a quick card I made recently at the stamp camp I went too!! It was sooo super fun and I got to play with some Stampin' Up! goodies that i don't own.... yet!!
The Foxy friends stamp set is ALL over Pinterest and the ideas that people are coming up with are AWESOME!!! Here is my first try with the cute little critters! Of course I HAD TO make the deer!
I rocked and rolled the animal image to create different looking fur, then cut up some of the words to spell out the word "DEER." Lastly added some of the cute Emerald Envy dots that are available in ALL the in-colours!
How perfect is the woodland embossing folder!! LOVE!
There is a wonderful inspiration picture for this weeks Just Add Ink challenge and I was keen to play! I've had this recent photo of our treasures and I that I've wanted to scrap and some new goodies to use so YAY for challenges that help!
I'm LOVING adding touches of gold or copper to my projects and water colouring is always sooo lovely to play with. I was able to use a brand new stamp set Best birds and had fun coming up with "different" colour birds than what you might see in the wild!
I've popped in some flowers (again due to inspiration pic) and finished it all off with the Title of LOVE using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits (LOVE THESE!!!!!) How sweet are those colours, the Sugar plum, Night of Navy and Mint macaroon work beautifully together!
Thanks heaps for popping by and seeing my take on the challenge, I do so much enjoy playing along with the talented ladies at JAI!!
Don't you just love a tree full of fruit?? This wonderful card with the Thoughtful Branches stamp set is full of tasty, red apples to enjoy! Combine that with the kind sentiment and you have a delish card to give to that deserving someone! Here is where I cased it from, in case you haven't got this set yet make sure you contact me today to order yours!! It's a must in your collection for sure!
Another card with the Thoughtful Branches set. This one was inspired by a gift bag that Stampin' Up! designed (can't find the pic though...) with white embossed leaves and the new doily as a sweet background! Loving the Peek-a-boo peach incolour and Watermelon wonder together with a splash of gold!
There is a wonderful new set to be released next month for a limited time and this is a sneak peak...
It has soooo much potential and is versatile for Birthdays, Sympathy, thinking of you and even Christmas!!
I held a stamp-a-stack last week and my lovely ladies got to play with it first hand!
Here are the cards we made....
The inspiration for the bird card was from Stampin' Up! headquarters as a card idea for workshops!! Thanks Stampin' UP! for making that easier!! The You're in my thoughts card was from ME!! Pleased to see I still have the creative spark, sometimes it feels quite dim! hee he!
I'm loving what you can do with this set and look forward to showing off some more of my creations in the next few days!! Remember at the moment for every $50 you spend you receive a $5 bonus voucher to spend next month!! Be a super way to buy this exclusive set as of the 2nd!! YAY!
When you have out your stamping goodies do you make some extra treats while you are at it?? That's exactly what I did here, you may notice it's using Washi, the heart die and some of my other "go to" fav's to create this quick tag for a recent gift! EASY and lovely all in one!
WOW I've been busy! What a wonderful holiday time we all had and then with my weaving being the perfect Winter craft, sitting in my office to blog has been, well uninviting!! BUT I have been making cards too and lately really quick ones!
This card was for my friend who has had a really hard year and I just wanted to send some LOVE and HUGS! How PREFECT is the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits for that!!!! SPOT ON!!! LOVE THEM!!!
Washi is a total FAV too and adds some fun interest to any card! Have you seen the new thick bakers twine?? This is the night of navy twine, sooo lovely with mint macaron!!
When I played with the sunshine wishes framelits and the JAI sketch the other week I also went on making this card! I really like the washi tape words and this washi from the Affectionately Yours set is my fav!
It's quite a simple card but that means I get them done quicker!! Oh and how lovely is the new Copper thread?? Such a perfect embellishment!
It's holidays now and there WILL be crafting time, cards and weaving are the priority... (I'm hoping!)
I can't believe that I've finally got around to joining in on the Just Add Ink fun!! WHoo HOO!! It's only taken ALL YEAR but here it is, my first entry for the year with the wonderful, talented ladies at JAI!!
I have some new goodies I was hanging to ink up and play with and a card that needed to be made for a lovely lady here in the Village! You could call her the Mother of Poatina, she is sooo special! So for a special lady there needed to be a special card! I used washi tape for the framelit greeting, the new copper twine for some delicate detail, faux suede delightful Dijon cardstock, a panel of shimmer white cardstock which I watercoloured with the Dijon then stamped the watercolour image (also from the Sunshine sayings set) in Cherry cobbler! Oh and my fav at the moment, the Gold glitter pen on the flower to highlight some "petals!!"
Hey I even stamped the inside too, added another framelit, this time the flower with the same copper washi tape and followed the greeting from "Love and Hugs... on one more year! Happy Birthday!" Wow this set has some super great sayings!!
The sketch was fun to work with, I've flipped it on the side and will certainly do this layout again!!
YAY, so there you have it! Thanks heaps for popping by and checking out my take on the challenge! Hopefully it won't be sooo long before I join in with the JAI gang again!
There seems to always be an occasion on which we can say thank you! Thanks for doing the washing, ( a job I really like help with!) thanks for having the children, thanks for all the work you did, thanks for being there as a friend, THANKS! This card is for a wonderful guy who's spent countless hours in the village here in Poatina writing curriculum and getting some old school buildings ready for students next year!
I thought that GOLD would be a wonderful touch for this thank you card and with some old DSP it all co-ordinated fabulously!! Love Stampin. Up! for that!! I embossed the Thank you and added some rustic embellishments, water coloured the background and splattered some of the sparkly gold glitter brush for good measure! OH I even stamped the inside!!
Due to the size of the card I needed to make an envelope to match, YAY for the envelope board!! Card complete, ready for all to sign and share their thanks!!
Do you have a stash of thank you cards ready to give?? I think it would be a super idea to have a pack ready to go! What a kind way to show someone your appreciation with a homemade thank you card.
