Scissor charms

In order to keep tabs on my snips at convention, I made myself (and 2 fellow demos in my team) a scissor charm with my initial ( of course, the other's had the initials of those I gave them to, other wise that would be awkward. he he:) )
I used Stampin' Up! Hodge Podge hardware and I attached a bead I made from Stampin' Up! designer paper. (More on these later as I will do a class including these).

Baby shower

A baby shower gift for a friend. The boxed set was originally packed around fabric. I pulled that out, and replaced with tissue that I had rolled using "So Swirly" jumbo roller and matched the ink with card. I also made a small "brag book" (To the left of the pic) for my friend to insert photos and mementoes once the baby is born.

My Convention Swaps

This was my main design for convention swaps.

I made 70 of these!

I aslo made 30 native bird cards for my fellow conventioners

My Stationery set class

Some examples of the things we made at this class. The original design was by Jackie Topia but I designed the box to accommodate the Stampin' Up envelopes. The cards, tags etc were designed by me.

New Zealand Native Birds

Inspired by Lynn Pratt , who has designed some gorgeous American Native birds using the fabulous 2 step bird punch (available in the Autumn-winter mini catalogue), I decide to go ahead and design some New Zealand native birds. And I taught 3 of these.

My Tui

My Yellowhammer

My Fantail

My Sparrow

If you would like to attend a design class to make these cards, please email me:)
