Simplify Sampler Embroidery Pattern

Posted by Janelle ­ Sunday, August 8, 2010 0 comments

My poor neglected blog... it has been so long since I visited here. I do have a new pattern that I am quite proud of. you can vie it here on my website. I think it may even be my favourite but then I always think that until I design a new one. It was fun to make. I love the simplify message. Our lives are cluttered with things and places to be ... simplify and enjoy the freedom that comes.

Trust Your Heart Stitchery Pattern

This stitchery is the third pretty stitchery in my Inspirations Range and is sure to delight. I am combining all these stitcheries into a quilt for my daughter... how lovely to sleep under such positive thoughts and affirmations. I just love the simplicity of this range.

The pattern includes detailed, easy to follow instructions on how to transfer, colour and stitch the design, a full sized pattern template, a complete requirements list and a close-up photo of the finished piece. You could also use this piece in a bag or cushion, frame it or include it in a quilt.

Finished stitchery measures 9.5x7.5 inches

Mother's Day Bookmark Printables

Posted by Janelle ­ Monday, April 5, 2010 2 comments

We are having a Mother's Day stall at school again this year - it is a regular fund raiser for the school and the kids love to shop there for their gifts. I designed some new bookmarks for the stall. They are available in my printables section here at my store. Just print, trim and laminate - such a quick and easy project.

Two Easter Cards

Posted by Janelle ­ Wednesday, March 31, 2010 0 comments

Can you tell I love bunnies? Both these Easter cards feature hand stamped bunnies. The little coloured bunny is a stamp fom StampIt. I colourd him with prismacolor pencils. The brown bunny has been stamped onto cork. He is gorgeous - a stamp from Amazing Creations. Both these stamps are from Australian companies I am proud to say.

The Easter Greetings card has an embossed background. I did that with my lovely little cuttlebug and an embossing folder. I love Easter - the pastel colours but most of all the chocolate.... Yummmm.

I made these cards from my Easter Card Making Kit available in my shop. You can see all the Easter cards I made with this kit here on my blog.

Pom Pom Bunnies Easter Card

Posted by Janelle ­ Friday, March 26, 2010 0 comments

Another of my Easter Cards. I like this pink cutout paper. I glued it onto a tiny pink polka dot backing paper and added some purple ricrac with double sided tape. The little bunnies are a stamp from Craft Ceations. I stamped them onto tan cardstock and added the smallest, cutest pom poms for tails. I mounted the bunnies onto purple corrugated card to create some balance against rhe purple base card. Tied it all together with a prima purple flower and baby pink brad. The dotted Happy Easter stamp from Printblocks tied in well with the theme - I stamped and embossed this one in pink. It is mounted onto some purple corrugated card like the bunnies. Now time for some chocolate....I have a card making kit to make all of my Easter Cards all ready to list in my shop and I also have one up for auction this week on Ebay here.
