What to do with those leftover pieces of DSP

This was made out of a 3 x 12 piece of designer series paper, 2 punchs, an ink pad, stipple brush and a few small scraps of elegant eggplant cardstock.
It was made for my daughter to remind her of the wonderful qualities that she has. I used the wonderful words set for daughter, sister, friend and a never released set in NZ called amazing to zany. I do hope they bring it out here at some stage as it is a super little set of 56 stamps and definitely fitted this project.
I hope you are inspired in some small way by this creation to use those little scrappy bits of card that we crafters are loath to throw out as we might need them one day.
It took around 30 minutes to make, was very quick and easy and at the end of it I had one very happy 10 year old.
Haven't tried the science store project yet but will hopefully get it made next week and posted for you to have a peek at.
Enjoy your weekend, as for me I'm off to the farm to see my friend Yvonne (Connors Nana)

Happy stamping everyone
PS Make note to self to be more careful of what is in the background next time I take a photo!

Hinge book

I hope you like the hinge book I made today of my friends grandson Connor. I used Blue Bayou card, a jumbo wheel and the Simply Scrapping kit that came with my kit when I signed up as a demo and off course a 3" hinge from Mitre 10.
As I can't remember his date of birth that will be added in later as will the distinguishing features part on the back cover
One thing I have learnt today is load the photo you want showing first last! Ah well never said I knew it all about this blogging stuff.
Took about 40 minutes to make and is a good way to use those left over bits of cardstock or designer series papaer that we just never manage to throw away.

Watch this space

This weekend is the big reveal on what I do in my spare time, hopefully I will have quite a few cards up for view by the end of the weekend.
The card above is one I did for the January swap challenge for the group of Stampin Up demonstrators I bvbelong to. We had to use product from either the summer mini or the salebration brochure. This card uses the yummy set and stamp n write markers and the "puddle" technique for the background. For further details on how to make this card contact me.
If you do not know what Salebration is all about then please email me. You get the opportunity to collect stamps for free! Like the sound of that then hit the email button to contact me and I can tell you how you can start earning stamps for free.
