Freshly Brewed Projects – Leaves and Foliage

Welcome to another week of Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls …


This week we are creating with the theme “Leaves and Foliage”.

We have a gazillion sets with leaves and foliage in them but I always go back to my lovely Vintage Leaves set.

See I had an idea a week or so ago for my sister’s Birthday present (you know the smart one that’s not only a High School Teacher but a poet as well) and since she’s Canada mad – well she loves all things Canadian and just released her Book of Poetry and last week had a couple of book launches in Victoria (you can get yours here)  So after seeing the Book Cover for the umpteenth time a penny (well canadian dollar maybe) dropped and this is the idea I had …


Here’s the book that inspired the creation …

The litte rocks inside the frame were an afterthought as I was putting it all together.  I’ve also sent her the extra Maple leaves for her own ‘in home’ display.

Of course no gift is complete without a card …


It was her birthday after all!

I do hope she likes it and see’s the connection to her book.

Now be sure to pop around to see what Libby and Narelle have created for this week’s challenge.

Weekly Deals

Happy Thursday!

Sorry these deals are coming to you a day late.  Yesterday I was travelling back from my Dad’s in Victoria and was a rather long day – we left Dad’s around 9,20am and I got home a little after 6.30pm!  That’s a long day of travelling considering it was the ‘quickest’ way.

On with the deals ….

Some nice sparkly and gold things there!

I will have to check my supply of Glimmer Paper and will definitely be ordering a couple of rolls of that Gold Ribbon – I love that stuff!  At these prices they’d make awesome stocking stuffers or an inexpensive gift for your favourite crafter!

Be sure to let me know if you’d like some of these goodies too – remember they are only on sale till Tuesday 24th November.

All Boxed Up

I do love so love the Kits we have in our Catalogue. I love how Stampin’ Up! makes these available each catalogue and versatile they can be. 

I recently assembled the All Boxed Up kit and I must say I love it and it’s great value for money! 

Now my picture here shows 8 very cute boxes but there are actually 10 in the kit! 

The stamp set is sold separately which is great because if you need more than 10 boxes you can just get another kit or if you feel you will need to make lots of these boxes you can then choose to buy the Baker’s Box Thinlits die which comes with extra pieces for tags, holes and embellishments! 

These little boxes will be great for … 

  • Birthday Party Thank You’s 
  • Place Settings for birthday, Christmas or any occasion
  • Gift Boxes
  • Handing out treats to friends and family
  • Wedding Favour Boxes

Here are the boxes I created … 


I do hope you like these little boxes and if you’d like to make one at your workshop be sure to  contact me to arrange a date.  You could earn any of the Stampin Up Kits for free when you hold a party in July with me!  So contact me now by phone or email and you could get ‘Your kit for free’!!

Stampin’ Up! Artisan Embellishment Kit

How much do you love the new Occasions Catalogue?  Are you like me and find something new every time you look through it? 

One little kit you may not have noticed is the new Artisan Embellishment kit on page 27 ….

Artisan Embellishment Kit $16.95

This kit is just gorgeous and so very versatile.  One thing I will point out though is that in the catalogue it lists 4 white doillies when in fact there are 2 in each kit so just be wary of that.  

The rose cutouts are lovely and you can use either side so you have white or sahara sand. You can also use these as masks to sponge the rose design onto a card before using the actual cut out on another card – cool eh? Then there’s the beautiful buttons, pearls, lace, flower trim and velvet trim – just divine.  

Here’s a very simple card you can make … 

I simply used the same colour cardstock as used in the lace – Rose Red and added a white panel at the bottom to stamp my greeting from Butterfly Basics.  Used one of the clear buttons and popped a small pearl in the centre. 

I then cased the decorated journal from the Catalogue … 

Now I’m not sure if you can see the stamping I did on the journal cover – I took the fern stamp from Butterfly Basics and stamped it in versamark just to give it a bit of pattern. Then I adhered one of the doilies, lace, velvet trim and butterfly.  The embellishment on top of the butterfly is simply one of the silver buttons with a large pearl on top – it reminds me of the old pearl buttons you used to see on Grandma’s Blouses and Cardigans! I then cut off two of the ribbon rose trim and popped them either side – all my layers were adhered with the Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive – I find that will stick anything to anything!

I love this little ‘old fashioned’ kit and I know you will too!

Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop … with Blog Candy!

Good Morning and welcome to my very first Stamp A Latte Team Blog Hop and we are featuring products from the Holiday Catalogue !10599134_10152811648097577_7044930502867129878_n

I have a wonderful team of ladies and I’ve done blog hops with other groups and thought it time I introduced you to my awesome team of ladies … there are five of us doing todays Blog Hop …

For my projects today I chose to use the lovely Endless Wishes Stamp Set, All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper and Washi Tape.

At first I struggled although I love this little stamp set many of the cards created tend to look the same. Then I remembered the Christmas Planner I made a few years back and thought I should make a new one ….


This planner was created based on a project I did years ago and just altered the size to fit the lovely Stampin’ Up! Note Cards and Envelopes.


The first opening has the Christmas Card List to keep a record of the cards you’ve sent and when.


The middle pockets house the Note Cards – there’s three in each pocket with envelopes.


In the back pocket we have our ‘Gift to Make’ list.  This is a great list to fill out when you see items here on my blog or on pinterest – it’s a good idea to write the link or name so its easy to find when you go to make it!

Then we have our cards …




The front cover was decorated with letters and adhesive diecuts from the Project Life Seasonal Snapshot Accessory Pack.

I will be running a class for this Planner or I can bring the class to you so be sure to register for that.  Not local and want the tutorial?  Contact me and place a $50 order and you’ll get the full tutorial for free – or you can join my Creative Club (starting in October) as it will be our Club Project.

Now how would you like to win a little Blog Candy??  

Well you can and all you need to do is visit all 5 blogs in this hop and comment on each one.  I will gather the names and email addresses from the girls and one lucky visitor will receive the Trim the Tree Designer Series Pack and a packet of Rhinestone Jewels! So get hopping and commenting … sorry but we can only give the Blog Candy to Australian Residents and Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators are not eligible – but everyone is welcome to comment!

Fringed Flower Box

Do you struggle to find lovely packaging for your gifts?  I know I do … I’m past just getting the gift bags from the local store as I want to give my friends and family something special … something they wont get from someone else and hopefully something they’ll admire as much as the gift inside!

Stampin’ Up! has wonderful gift giving ideas and there’s so much you can do to make it ‘from you’ – we’ve got bags, boxes, tags and all the pretties to pretty them up and ribbons and twine to tie it all up!

I’ve started a new stamp club with a lovely group of ladies and here’s one of the projects we made recently ….


We simply wrapped a piece of Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper around the Tag a Box and added a Doily and some ribbon. The pom pom flowers were made using the Fringed Scissors from the Occasions Catalogue and some more Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper and were stuck to the top with Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive Glue.


They look pretty cool dont they?

Now did you know that there is less than two weeks left of the current Catalogues as well as the retiring list stamps and accessories?  A few things have already sold out but there is still lots there that you can grab before it’s too late.  The Eastern Elegance Paper I’ve used in today’s project is retiring and is actually discounted!
