Isla Frame

Here is the second frame for the week. It is using the same papers as the Tahlia frame however I have covered some wooden letters with the papers instead of stamping them.
Two down, two to go!

Tahlia Frame

Here is a frame I have just completed for a friend for her new little neice Tahlia. It took a while to get the colour combination right but after lots of swapping squares and embellishments around, I am happy with the final product.

It is one of several that I have going at the moment and look forward to sharing the others with you once completed.

Final Market

Well today was my last market for the year. They have certainly kept me busy over the last 6 months but I have really enjoyed them. Not only a chance to relax a bit but also an opportunity to check out some other great stalls and sit with others that share my passion for crafts and design. So today in Yarraville we had a steady flow of people throughout the day and as the Christmas carols played it was the first time I realised how close we are to Christmas!The Christmas cards were popular and also the packs of Christmas tags. Now the last thing for me to do this year is to make and send my own cards!

Portarlington Workshop

I headed to Portarlington again last Tuesday to do another card class at the Neighbourhood house. They had requested some type of masculine card so I had to think a bit and I came up with these cards. It was a bit like origami and involved folding a piece of paper (4 x 6 in) to create the shirt. The other card looks at using lots of layering and tearing of the paper which works well in make cards. This reduces the amount of stamping on the cards which some males are not too fussed about!
