Angry Birds Card & Box gift set.

Birthday party invitation. My kids birthday's are so close (two days apart), we decided to have a joined party for them this year. They wanted the invitations to be colourful, but the part I found tricky was making them suitable for both girls & boys. This was the one they chose to go with.

Birthday Party invitation. This was the one I liked, but apparently it wasn't colourful enough.

The kids made their own party bags as part of the activities. Here I am showing them how to make a box -in-a-bag.
Everybody working hard on their party bags, & us parents helping too.
While the kids were busy doing zumba, treats had been tucked into their party bags.
This was suppose to be an Angry Birds winter cake, & though it doesn't look much like snow on the cake, there are marshmallow snowmen. The big angry birds are store brought marshmallow pops, but I made the smaller red angry bird and the three green pigs from fondant icing, & chocolate finger biscuits over the pigs & around the sides of the cake.

Melbourne Regionals 2012

I thought I should share my regional samples with everyone. Things at regionals were a little bit different this year, less swapping but lots & lots of sample to see, take photo's of & watch how some of them were made. Over all I think it was terrific, but I didn't have time time do everything, because there was so much to see & do. 
So Here are my swaps.

Sunshine: Stamp sets; Trendy Trees & Happiest Birthday Wishes. Extras; Stripes embossing folder & Sponges.
Reflections: Stamp sets; Lovely as a tree, Woodgrain & Creative Elements. Extras; Brayer , White gel pen & acetate.

Gift set & Mini Album

Wow... I guess it been ages since the last time I posted anything here. But I discovered that if I want ideas for a particular project, or ideas for particular stamps, papers, colours or techniques, all I have to do is type in my key word (for example "Lovely as a Tree" & maybe "stampin up"), then click on images, the samples all come up. That is as long as they're on a blog or posted somewhere to be shared, which is why I thought I should pull my finger out & share some more projects & samples.
