Just Add Ink...

It's new and it's exciting. The Design Team consists of Australian and New Zealand Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who love to share what they love and inspire others to create.

Every Friday a new challenge will be set and you have until the following Wednesday to link your creation using Mr Linky on the Just Add Ink Blog.

This weeks challenge was to use the following colours. For my entry I decided to create a Joy Fold Card.

Better Late Than Never...

Okay I know Christmas has been and gone, but I really wanted to show you the 'Poop Boxes' I made our family and friends for Christmas.

The box itself is very simple in design. Debbie Airey had them featured on her blog just prior to Christmas, along with some very easy to follow instructions on how to make them. You can check her blog post out here. I used a 4 x 8" piece of card stock to get a slightly larger finished box. I then stamped it using the snow flake from the 'Winter Post' set.

I then decorated the boxes with punch art. The reindeer is a case from Heather Summer's while the snowman I created myself.
His body was constructed using the 3 large circle punches from Stampin' Up! and then sponged with basic gray to give a little definition. His arms were created by stamping both the right and left arms form the 'All in the Family' Set on a piece of whisper white. His hat; the round tab punch. Lastly two eye's were punched from a scrap of black card stock using a 1/4" circle punch. A slither of groovy guava for his nose and to finish him off a few dots to create a mouth.

The boxes were then filled with snowman poop (marshmallows) and reindeer poop (chocolate coated peanuts). All in all I made 4 snowmen and 48 reindeer, so needless to say I was rather pleased when they were all finished.

A Fond Farewell...

At the end of the year one of Connor's morning kindy teachers finished up. As a big thank you to her for all she did with the children during the year I made a thank you card and with a matching 6" x 6" album. The album was filled with photo's from throughout the year of both the children and the teachers.

To package the album I made a box slightly larger than the ablum and added a clear lid using acetate.
