Super Boss Day Blog Hop


Welcome to the Heart Kids Super Boss Day Blog Hop. Today we are spreading awareness of a fun event raising awareness and money for a great cause. Super Boss Day challenges you to dress as a superhero for a day to raise funds to support kids with congenital/childhood heart disease.



The theme for today is red, blue and white. I would have loved to do a superhero card but unfortunately I didn't have anything suitable. Instead I focused on the colours and made this.

Varied Vases is such a versatile stamp set. Match it with the coordinating punch and  you can make quick and easy cards or more elaborate cards like this. Get  yours here - https://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/product/148381/varied-vases-photopolymer-bundle?dbwsdemoid=4008228

So what is Heart Kids?  

"HeartKids is the compass to help navigate the lifetime journey of the 64,000 Australian children, teens and adults affected by congenital/childhood heart disease. Our aim is to help them - and their families - to lead the most fulfilling life possible and to reach their personal goals.

We are the voice for all people impacted by congenital/childhood heart disease - the largest cause of infant death in Australia. 

HeartKids work is outcome-focused and demonstrates real impact for families impacted by congenital/childhood heart disease, and for the community. Our work is focused on our four pillars of Advocacy, Information, Research and Support.

We provide dedicated support services and information for parents, young people, adults and Heart Angel families to provide guidance and support through the lifetime journey."


Besides raising awareness today, we would also like to raise much needed funds to help these sick kids. So if you could spare a few dollars, please click on the image below. Thankyou.

Freshly Brewed Projects - Nature



Welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls. This week it is all about Nature and Outdoors. 


What better a product for this than the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. This paper is full of nature with its floral theme.


I love this paper so much and just can't stop using it. Here is  the project I made with it for todays blog hop.

I teed the paper up with another favourite, the Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Paper. This is what I used for the frame. 


I thought  the card needed some more flowers on it, as the paper full of flowers just wasn't enough...lol. Then I remembered  the tissue paper that comes between the sheets of the laser cut paper and decided to make some flowers.

I thought you might want to know how to make the flowers.
See the pictorial below.




So when you get the laser cut paper, make sure you keep the tissue paper and make these flowers.

Lots of Happy


Hello and welcome to my blog.
Today I am showing you all the wonderful cards that you can make with the Lots of Happy Card Kit.

This kit is amazing! You get twenty cards, four each of five different designs. You get the prestamped die cut images to colour with the provided water colour pencils. Also included is an acrylic block, a small ink pad and wonderful stamp set. Everything you need, except the glue, is in the box.

The gorgeous Lots of Happy Card Kit. Everything is included in the kit to make 20 beautiful cards. There is a even a kit refill available so you can make more. Get your kit here - http://bit.ly/2xYobt3

These cards are so pretty when made up. They take a little longer than your average card to complete, but the effort is definitely worth it. The reason they take longer is because of the colouring. But I know for many people this is not a problem, as colouring is relaxing and therapeutic.

I love the variety of cards in this kit. Not only are they all unique in design, but they are also unique in size. They aren't just your average card. Take this first one for example. This card is a cute little on 2" x 3 1/2". The perfect size for a gift card to accompany a special hand delivered gift.

This next card is a bit bigger at 4 1/2" x 2 1/2", and my favourite. It takes a little longer to complete this card as there is a lot more detailed colouring. But it depends how detailed you do it as to how long it will take. This is definitely my favourite card.

The stamp set in the kit, comes not only with all the sentiments, but some floral images too. So I decided to decorate all the included envelopes as well. As our founder is often saying, never send a naked envelope.

Now this next card is a bit different and not a style you would often see. It is a hexagon. But so cute made up. I love how little surprises in our kits makes them so exciting. I would never think to make a card this shape, but now I have, I think it's an awesome shape to add to my normal range.

It fits nicely into a 4" x 4" envelope. Talking envelopes, all of the ones provided are lined with beautiful black and white stripes. It adds the perfect touch of drama when opening the cards.

The last two cards in the kit are your standard sized cards. All of the cards are truly spectacular. They all follow a common theme, but each are unique and delightful. I love that you have complete control over the finished product. You don't necessarily have to copy the kit, you can change them up any way you like.

Because the stamp set included in the kit has not only the sentiments and some floral images, you can use the stamp set again and again on your own projects. But if you want to make more of these same cards, there is a refill kit available. So you can make another twenty of these same cards. This is perfect if you have a business where you want to consistently have the same style cards to send to your clients.

The other great thing I  love, is that you can choose how you want to colour the images, if you choose to colour them at all. You can use a delicate touch, or a heavier touch. You can blend the colours or choose to use just one. You have total control on how your finished cards look.

Just because the sentiments are included in the kit, it doesn't mean that  you are restricted to just these sentiments. You can use any sentiment you have on hand that fits. Our kits give you the best of both worlds. You can have a kit to follow along with and not have to think about the design or choosing different elements. Or you can totally change up the kit and use the different elements in your own way.
