In Class, Quick Birthday Cards


Earlier this month I hosted a special class to celebrate the end of another year of stamping fun!  Class participants played bingo, won prizes, shared treats and of course, made some cards.  The party nature of the event was best suited to quick, simply stamped projects.  I designed two, each featuring the pre-cut foil-edged cardbases hidden away in the current Stampin' Up! holiday catalogue.

This first silver edged design featured a little Frosted Florals Specialty patterned paper, a few layered embellishments and a sentiment from the new - soon to be released - Amazing Life stamp set.


The second design went right back-to-basics with stamps and ink, also featuring this same sneak peek of the Amazing Life set.  Oh who am I kidding, I couldn't help but also add some 'Artisan' touches with the Stampin' Blends pop of colour with a little banner and bow.

We might be in the midst of the busy festive season but with quick card designs like these, no friend celebrating their birthday in December need be neglected!

Couldn't make class?  Join me in the below video tutorial as I share these two designs in detail - perfect for when you need a cute project in a hurry!


PLEASE NOTE: the foil card bases used in these projects are in the current Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue.  The sales period for this catalogue ENDS on the 2nd of January.  Get yours before they are gone!

I'm going to enjoy a nice break from stamping over the Christmas/end of year break.  The kids have a long hot summer school holiday starting very soon and I look forward to enjoying that with them.  I will be back with more class sessions in 2019.  Keep watch on my facebook page, or sign up to my newsletter, to keep up with the latest news!

A huge thank you to everyone for your support in 2018 xx

Warm wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,
Love, Jenn

My Christmas Cards, Fancy Friday


It's almost December 1 and that means it's officially time to put up the tree and get into the Christmas spirit!  This weekend I host my very last cardmaking class for 2018.  I made this batch of cards especially for the lovely friends I'll see there at the session.

I always aim to get my Christmas cards out in the first week of December.  I love the idea of these holiday wishes bringing someone a smile all month long.  A display of cards from loved ones really makes a home feel like Christmas and truly is the nicest holiday decor!


As I was creating a batch, I stuck with a pretty simple sketch.  The bold photo paper from the All is Bright Designer Series Paper pack made for the perfect quick background.  The stamp comes from the Labels to Love set.  I stamped it first in Soft Suede on the vanilla panel here, then again on a scrap piece of vanilla in Real Red.  Cutting the 'Christmas' from the scrap red sentiment was easy - it's all straight lines - and made for a nice pop of colour to tie in with the reds throughout the design.


Cards for my fellow crafty friends can sometimes be a challenge as I want them to have something special that hasn't already been featured in a class session.  I'm so grateful for today's Fancy Friday blog hop for motivating me to get these made just in time for this coming Sunday's event.  Click the next link below to follow the hop and find HEAPS of wonderful Christmas card inspiration!

Next up is Dani Dziama, you'll definitely want to see what beautiful design she is sharing today.
