Hi Everyone, Welcome to Stef's papercrafts blog.

We hope to share lots of projects, new products, ideas and inspiration with you.

The Next Sneak Peak

Written by Kristy on . Posted in Blog

Hi everyone,

Just another little sneak peak of one of the projects we are creating at the Weekend Workshop in a couple of weekends.  This one uses Simple Stories Homespun papers and elements.  They are a mix of navy blue, reds, woodgrain, grid, some yellow and other colours.  There is still time if you want to come along but you would need to let Stef know ASAP, so you can start to get your photographs ready.

Hope to see you then,




Weekend Workshop Sneak Peak

Written by Kristy on . Posted in Blog

Hi everyone,

A few computer dramas involving a little boy and some liquid has meant that my computer is off getting fixed and I have borrowed one to get the stuff for the weekend workshop done.  So this sneak peak is a little belated but we are back on track now.  

The Weekend Workshop is on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27th April (in just a couple of weeks).  We chat, make projects together, you get to try out some different techniques, play with product, eat yummy food and just generally have a good time.  If you have seen the facebook page you would have seen a different sneak peak for a 6x8 album we will be creating on the weekend.  One of the other projects we will be completing uses some of the gorgeous paintable cards by Prima, Tim Holtz stencils, distress paint and watercolour pencils.  Here is just a little sneak peek.

If you want more information about the weekend workshop pop in to Southern Stationery to see Stef or contact her on 98422 2222.  There is already a lovely group of ladies coming along and I would love to see you there.

Bye for now,



Carnation Creations

Hi All

As I have been playing with the new dies making cards for Saturday's card class I thought I would share one of them with you. This card has been created using a layer embossed with the new Couture Creations large damask flourish embossing folder with a pretty piece of wide lace wrapped around it. The flourish leaves have been die cut from spellbinders shapeabilities Sprigs die and the flower has been created using layers of petals die cut from Spellbinders Carnation Creations. The card is finished with a small pearl in the centre of the flower and a greeting attached.

Thanks for stopping by

Hello Sunshine card

Hi everyone,

I haven't had too much time for making cards lately as I have been working on my Project Life album but I did grab a few moments to create this quick card using Kaisercraft's Hello Sunshine paper and collectables.

Kaisercraft Scrapbook Organiser

Hi Everyone,

Today I thought I would share my completed Scrapbook Organiser.  You can buy the precut wooden pieces packaged together - it is Kasiercraft product.  You need to decorate/paint it and then assemble it.  For my organiser I chose to paint the edges with picket fence (white) distress paint. This is really quick to dry and easy to apply.

Valentine's Day Card

Hi Everyone,

I am sharing a vintage style Valentine's Day card using some of the new Spellbinders dies and My Minds Eye Heirloom paper pad.  This is another card that doesn't require any stamping although I did use some ink around the edges of papers though.
