Eden's Garden Layout


Hello and welcome. Today I have a layout to share using some new products coming in November. Have you seen the new Eden's Garden products? I will share them further down, but for now, here is a layout I made using them.


As soon as I saw the cotton paper, I thought Christmas tree. I have no idea why my brain associated a Christmas tree, but it did. So I went with it and found a great picture of a tree from a few years ago.

I had a crazy idea that I could recreate the tree somehow with the dies and the cotton paper. Here is a close up of my cotton paper tree.


I love patterned paper so used a lot of it on this layout. Then I realised that I hadn't really used the beautiful stamp set. So I stamped behind the die cuts on the top right and bottom left of the middle mat. I think it added a subtle and beautiful touch.


When you look at the Eden's Garden stamp set, you don't naturally see Christmas. So in doing this layout, I wanted to show that you can use your products in ways you don't normally think about. Just about any floral stamp set can be used for Christmas. It's just the colours you use and the sentiments you use that make it Christmas. Take my title on this layout as an example. The "Let's celebrate everything" sentiment is from the Eden's Garden stamp set, and I just paired it with the Christmas from another stamp set.


I love this new bundle of products so much that I even made a class for it. 

Eden's Garden Stamping By Mail


The Class cost - $41 -  You will receive the Ever Eden Specialty Designer Series 12" x 12"  Paper Pack,   Project kits for two  each of 6 different projects, plus printed colour instructions. Open to Australian residents only.

Artistically Inked


Hello and welcome. Today I have another Artisan Design Team project to share with you using the Artistically Inked stamp set. This time I am showing you how to make stunning cards that are only one layer. All the design is on the actual card front. The illusion of layers is created using masking.

Here are the projects, then I will step you through the steps to create this effect.


Now this is super easy to do. You can do it straight onto the card front, or add a layer in between for a pop of colour like I did.

Start by drawing a line or two onto your card stock. This is the space where your sentiment will go and will not be stamped on.


Now completely cover that section with paper to protect it. 
Then simply stamp your design. I wanted to use the same stamp repeatedly, so I also created a mask for my stamp so I could have the look of the flowers being behind each other.


When you are finished creating your design, simply take away your masking and you are left with a space to stamp your sentiment. The end result will look like you have added a layer for the sentiment strip.

I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial and if you try this, please let me know what you thought of it.

Merriest Moments



Hello and welcome. Today I have my latest Artisan Design Team projects to share with you. The bundle I used was the Merriest Moments stamp set and hybrid embossing folder. This was such an amazing product bundle to play with. The hybrid embossing folder is so different to use.

First of all, here are the projects I made. Then I will share a tip and finally a video on how to use the hybrid embossing folder.


Now if you know me, you will know that these colours are definitely out of my comfort zone when it comes to Christmas. Normally I am a traditional red, green and gold girl. But sometimes you just need to change it up a bit. I actually like the silver and blue colour combination. I think the blue pops and is very eye catching.

You will notice on the bottom card that the stamping is a bit disjointed and not lined up with the embossing folder. Well that is because I hate wasting things. I had stamped a card front and didn't like the way it was looking. So I used the hybrid embossing folder and dies to cut it out. It gives a really different look and is a great tip to remember for using up those projects that don't quite turn out. It's better than throwing them away.


If you haven't yet seen the Merriest Moments bundle, here it is including each of the elements in it.






The Merriest Moments Bundle includes the Merriest Moments Stamp Set and the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder.

Whimsy & Wonder Tag


Hello and welcome. Today I have the third instalment of the #52tagssuchallenge. Our theme this week is the letter C. I couldn't help myself and had to do Christmas. I am such a Christmas tragic....hehehe.

The products I chose to use for this tag was the gorgeous Whimsy & Wonder Suite. Oh my this is just amazing. The stamp set is so delicate and beautiful, the dies are awesome and the patterned paper is devine. This has to be my most favourite suite in a while.



I showed you in yesterdays post the cards I made, so here is the tag I made using it. 


And here is a closer look.
