SBK Club Kit Reveal!

The Celebration Kit is on sale now over at SBK Club! I enjoyed every moment of this vibrant kit. As it was full of such fun colours & rub ons, the only things I added to the kit were acrylic paints in periwinkle & lilac, my trusted corner rounder for some scalloping of circles & borders and my papermania diamond border punch. Finally I added some Heidi Swapp lettering for the title in my first page. I made a card with the left overs.

With this kit you’ll receive:
2 textured Bazzill cardstock (vanilla and pink)
1 Striped patterned paper by Junkitz - Salsa Chunky Stripe
2 double sided patterned papers by Fancy Pants - Party & Confetti
1 sheet full of rubons (Fancy Pants Celebrate line)
half sheet of Celebrate die cuts
1 pack of colourful buttons (Yabo)
6 paper flowers by SBK

Happy Father's Day

I spent the weekend at my Dad's. He was in hospital over night for an op middle of last week so after work on Friday I went straight over to see him. He said he was fine but I thought I'd check for myself! He is actually very well and we spend a few days together.

Meanwhile my sister is busy trying to find a new home as they were recently given two months to vacate the gorgeous farmhouse that they live in. This is the problem faced by us tenants, you can never truly call your home, yours! She has had a few properties to see this weekend & finger's cross they look hopeful. They have the chickens & cats so they can't just move into the middle of town!!
I'm very tired and ready for a break, we are quite busy at work,so I haven't done much creating recently, but plenty of reading. I thought I might have some design team work to show you, but there is a delay with the kits.

Sneak Peeks

of the next kit from SBK Club. This was fun to work with & the colours are so vibrant. It felt like summer as I created! Keep a look out over the weekend for the full reveal.

Well there are no doubt a few World Cup Widows among us, so it is good we have a fabulous hobby. I fortunately live alone so can please myself over what I watch on the television. But for those who can't this is the perfect time to create, or like me read. I'm still doing well with my reading & the minibook of books is coming on nicely. I should have photos to share later in the year.

Happy Birthday, Joy.

Yesterday, was the birthday of my friend Joy. We have known each other since 1985 and when I was thinking what to make for her I knew these papers were just perfect.
They are Ella Blue by G.C.D studios & every single sheet is totally yummy. I teamed them with this image from paperbag studios, it is rapidly becoming one of my favourite rubber stamps, along with the flower stamp that was free with Craft Stamper a while ago.

May/June Calendar Pages

These are two pages of the calendar I made for work. They were all made at the same time & based on the same simple design for speed. It really brightens up my desk.

I have sneak peeks ready to show of the next DT kit, but am not allowed to share until the right time. I have been crafting away at the weekends, working on my minibook of books and I also plan to complete the Capturing Time book that I began alongside my blog friend Rhonda. It was meant to be a 52 week project but we stopped at page 46. I hate unfinished things, so plan to complete it. However, work is hectic & by the time I get home, I have little desire to create. My team leader left last week & we had a "do" for him after work on Friday. It is going to feel very strange without him in the coming weeks!
