An October Occasion...

Kia ora koutou

The kids started back at school and kindergarten last week woohoo! :)  I started my new part-time job - it is fantastic, my employer's are lovely, I am going to do my best and hope they keep me on for a long time. I also started back at my Monday Card Class, how I missed the ladies - thank you Linda for teaching your wonderful cards over the school holidays.

Monday Card Class...

Romantic Vintage

This card is dedicated to nana <3

I wanted to show the ladies how fantastically resourceful the 6.5" x 6.5" pads are - full of beautiful card you can use to decorate, layer, and embellish your creative projects.  Some pads have the additional die-cut labels and borders BONUS!, quick and easy ready-to-make cards :)  
The focal point of this card is the red flower - I sponged and stamped the ink colour 'Real Red' around the edges, connecting the focal point to the rest of the card.  For the inside of the card, I fussy-cut some flowers that are also featuring on the front of the card - so when you open the card it is all tied together and you are reminded of the prettiness on the front. 

Stamps - Charming, Happy Greetings
Ink - Real Red
Card - French Vanilla Bazil, Kaisercraft: Needle and Thread 6.5" x 6.5" pad ( a few pages)
Accessories - Little Leaves Sizzlit, Butterfly Wings Embosslit, Lacy Border Punch, Scalloped Circle Punch, Triple Blossom Bouquet Punch, 5mm Corner Punch, Scissors (for fussy cutting), Hemp thread, Silver Brad, Dimensionals.

Butterfly Window

For this card, we made our own 'designer paper' by randomly stamping the beautiful swirl images and filling in the gaps with a small flower bouquet stamp with black ink on white card...stunning and simple, this technique is also known as 'one-sheet-wonder'; you can make a whole heap of cards using your hand-stamped designer sheet.  
The front of the card has a vellum window with a layered butterfly on top, when closed you can see the designer paper through the window :)

Butterfly Easel

...So we had a little extra time, this meant we were able to make a little extra something :)  My talented and beautiful colleague (fellow tutor in The Paper Peacock design team) Maria, taught me how to make this pretty little easel card.  So simple and easy, if you would like instructions - email me; or see me at The Paper Peacock :)

Stamps - Large Swirl Stamp (Borrowed from Linda), Charming, Apothecary Art
Ink - Basic Black
Card - Blue Lagoon Bazil, White Bazil, Vellum (opaque white)
Accessories - Beautiful Butterflies Bigz, Beautiful Wings Embosslits, Labels Collection Framelits, Rhinestone, Dimensionals, Scalpel (to cut out butterfly window).

....Thank You

I am ever grateful for my Stampin' Up! customers, because of you I have the best job in the world (in my opinion, lol)...I mean who else gets to play/create, have a party, meet wonderful people, get free products and fantastic discounts? 
I always like to create a unique, beautiful thank you card and pop it in when returning customer orders -  here is the latest one:
Double embossing featuring a half-cut Label Framelit edge.
Stamps - Charming, Itty Bitty Banners
Ink - Blushing Bride
Card - Whisper White, In Color 2010 - 2012 Designer Series Paper Stacks
Accessories - Labels Collection Framelit, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder, Designer Frames Folder, Beautiful Wings Embosslits, White Satin Ribbon, Dimensionals, Home-made templates for double-embossing.


I was asked to make a graduation card, found this fantabulous design through Splitcoast Stampers - a very clever, creative lady Heidi Baks:  click here for the link to her blog; runningwscissorsstamper.

....Love You Mum

While writing this blog, I have been guiltily enjoying scoffing down my chocolates that were given to me for mother's day...sooooo yummmeh!  I want to take this opportunity to say to my mum Priscilla D and my mum out-law (not in-law yet)  Charmaine K - love you <3 xoxo

....On another note: 'An October Occasion' - actually, Saturday 19th October 2013 to be exact, happens to be quite a special occasion...tis the day Ryan and I are to tie the knot, get hitched, OMG get married!!! Yayyyyy, exciting, about time, can't wait!

Thanks for having a look, come back again, till next time...

Cook says Jacobs knows what he's doing: "He makes 'editorial' bags that the magazines will talk about and after that he can sell the regular bags based around the hype. The down side to this to having plenty of healthy foods on hand is they might just be too available. They offer an easy way to know when foodstuffs need to become thrown out by.

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of
your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.

Maybe you could space it out better?

find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue.

from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your

quick. I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to start.
Do you have any tips or suggestions? With thanks

I drop a leave a response when I especially enjoy a article on
a blog or I have something to contribute to the conversation.
It is a result of the fire displayed in the article I read.

And after this article "An October Occasion...". I was actually moved enough to post a thought :
) I actually do have some questions for you if you don't
mind. Could it be just me or do some of these responses appear as if they are written by brain dead visitors?
:-P And, if you are writing on additional social sites,
I'd like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post.
Could you make a list the complete urls of your shared
sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets
I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter

this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However just imagine if you added
some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"!
Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this website
could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its field.
Awesome blog!
