Spellbinders Card share and upcoming class

Hey Everyone, I'm here today with a quick share a card I recently created over the holiday break for Spellbinders.  The card comes with a tutorial, so head on over to the blog via the link below to check out the 'How to' on it so you can add it to your DIY list!

The card was made using Spellbinders' 'Card Creator' System.  I just adore how easy this system makes putting a card together.  I also incorporated some stencilling with The Crafter's Workshop 'North Star 6 x 6" stencil with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Whipped Spackle.  I used Bazzill Card Shoppe Collection cardstock in my two favourite colours - Robin's Egg and Marshmallow, which shows up the most beautiful embossed edges for this card design.

You can find the full tutorial for this on the Spellbinders blog here

I also have a class coming up teaching a number of techniques using Dies... Spellbinders dies of course!  If in you are in Melbourne you might like to come along :)

Here are some details:

In this class we will create 4 stunning cards incorporating Metallic Melts and learn lots of different ways to use your Spellbinders dies to ge the most out of them. 
Class will be held at Little Bits in Keysborough on Saturday 7th February
Call the store for more details and to book in (03) 9798 4122

I can also do kits for those interested (including die cuts) (you will need other share products – email me for details) that are interstate or can’t make it.

Hope you enjoyed my quick share today!

Something blue with Bella Fundamentals

Sometimes we all find we might be a little creatively stuck or even just wanting to push the boundaries for a new idea.  So today I'm here to show you a project that I made with the help of inspiration from a few places. 

Having recently been away on holidays to the beach I was really inspired by the colours in my surroundings.  I often find inspiration from the colours in my surroundings, so next time you might be stuck for some colours to use, look at your surroundings, there may be some colours that surprise you!  

My next inspiration for this card came from the below sketch by Susan Stringfellow.  I loved the main design and wanted to play around with it and try out something a little different.  

To create the card I decided to get creative with the Spellbinders doiley die in place of the double scallop in the sketch design.  

I started out with white Bazzill Card Shoppe collection cardstock in marshmallow (My Favourite!) and first embossed with the two dies nested together.  I then removed the outer die and cut out the inner doiley pattern.

I then matched up the ribbon strips cut from the Bella Funamentals 'Something Blue' collection papers with the outer die and cut so that the ribbon banners will fit below the doiley pattern lined up perfectly

The white cardstock was then backed onto more Bella Funamentals 'Something Blue' collection paper and added to a white card base.

I finished off the card with the stamped sentiment, some natural twine, a beautiful die cut heart from the New Wedding die-cut pack and droplets

Here are some more detail pictures so you can get up and close with my card.

I hope you enjoyed my share today and look to find inspiration for your next project either off the Internet or from the colours in your surroundings.

Happy Creating! 


wedding decorating with Bella Fundamentals and their 'Get Hitched' collection

Hi Everyone, I’ve been away on holidays and enjoying some sand, sea and surf for a much deserved break… boy it was a busy year! I thought I would share some projects I was thrilled to do for Bella Ruby Rock-it recently which are featured in Spotlight’s ‘Get Creative’ magazine.  I was only given a couple of days to get all these project done, plus another set of projects with the new 'True Love' Collection (you'll have to wait for a future post for those) but the Collections which are two of the new Wedding Collections by Bella were so inspiring, and with everything working so well together it made creating them easy, quick and so much fun! 

These are the projects I created with the modern ‘Get Hitched’ collection

All of the projects have a bit of a wood theme which works well with the wood theme in the collection.  I asked my hubby to cut these wedges from some logs of wood we had in the back yard.  I just love the 'extra special' place names for the special Bride and Groom!

I continued with my theme, this time asking hubby to cut me a thinner slice from a larger log perfect for the table setting.  All dressed up with the beautiful papers in the collection, some of the die cut elements in the glitter hearts and finished with some natural bamboo cutlery.
For the guest name places I created cute tags with the papers and die cut glitter hearts and tied them to small slices of wood with gold chord - yes hubby came in handy again!

Again continuing the theme of the wood I created these fun wedding invitations and matching envelope. 

To finish I dressed up this plain white candle perfect for the table centre piece.  

                                                   Bella/ Ruby Rock-it Supplies used:

Get Hitched Paper Collection
Bella Die cuts (Foiled)

Other Supplies Used:
White cardstock

So many are trying to keep the costs down of weddings and saving money for their future.  Collections such as the 'Get Hitched' collection from Bella Fundamentals really helps you do this quickly and easily.  

Although these projects are a little more wedding focused, they are each easily adapted to any party. With Valentines day around the corner it would be nice to make a similar setting maybe without the 'bride and groom' focus.  Perfect for a special dinner for two at home.  The papers can stay the same too!...who says you have to do pink and red for Valentines!

I made these projects in no time at all and I hope to have inspired you to get a little creative with your table settings.

I recently also created this layout using the same collection - the collection really doesn't call for too much to be done with it and I love how it is perfect for many styles of weddings from classic (which mine was) or more modern.


Happy Creating!
