A CASE of copying for Fathers Day

OK, I'll admit it - not many original thoughts here!!

In the past I have been embarrassed (especially when working with Trish - the most original thinker I know!) that most of my craftwork is copied. However I have just recently discovered that copying is quite acceptable in the world of stamping, it even has it's own acronym - CASE Copy And Share Everything.

This is great news for me & following you will see why:
I have been making some Fathers Days cards (it is this Sunday 2nd Sept) & this one is cased from Trish (almost exactly!). Quite simple - abit of distress ink & the cool little fisherman is colourd with chalks.

This shirt was so cute I had to case it from here . A stamp down the bottom & abit of ribbon. Bernie wanted me to make it like a footy jernsey - cute idea, but I'm rather challenged when it comes to colouring, so stripes it is! Email me if you would like instructions on how to fold the shirt or come along to my day at Burren on the 1st Sept to make it just in time for Fathers Day.

I also thought I'd share with you some tags I made for Sam to take to school for a stall.

Here's to CASEing - I love it!

Something (not so) cute??

Awhile ago my good freind Trish set a "something cute" card swap. I started, what I thought was a good idea, then a month later I finally finished. Not sure I am happy with the end result, but it will have to do - hope they are cute enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Burren Junction 1/9/07

I am holding a workshop at the Burren RSL club on Sat 1st of Sept. We will be creating an album using 6 x 6 drilled covers similar (or the same if you like) as the following:

This one is a birthday book, it has a page for each month with spaces to write in family & friends birthdays. Very handy so you don't forget them - I have a terrible memory & am always forgetting.

This one is a mini album, great for when you want to scrap an event but have too many photos for one page. Also a handy present - looks great on a bookshelf or mantle.

The day will start at 9.30am & will cost between $15 & $25, depending on which type you wish to make & what embellishments you want to use. I will also throw in a fathers day card for anyone who may be running behind for Sunday 2nd.

12 x 12 Album

This is the cover of my favourite album (at the moment) It is an album I have started for my beautiful daughter - & yes the pic is crooked. I hadn't even noticed until my sister pointed it out - thanks sis. Anyway, I still love it, crookedness & all.
