I did another impromptu show the on the 19th on ustream.
Don’t panic if you missed it. Most usually do as I only give about 40min notice on facebook/ustream anyway.
Here is the Ustream taped show for you to view… warning it is 60min long! ooops! LOL
if you haven’t had enough here is my vid of my first impressions of the mag kit….
*** just under 9min long.
Thanks all for watching.
Well as I type this I am way back in March.
I know I’m getting a bit ahead of myself and I cannot believe I am about a month ahead of myself!
I decided last month (feb) not to post every day but have at least a day between posts so here I go with another post that is way ahead of the date I’m posting
Of course it was still during stampin ups sale-a-bration time where in NZ for every $120 you spend you get a free item! Coolness…. Yes I bought more supplies. SHHHHH don’t tell my “use up you stash” series followers!
Ok so we all have weaknesses and you all know mine! It isn’t any secret.
Well that’s it for now…
All the best
And stay crafty!

Another Kiwi blog (Kiwi= New Zealander) has started a weekly feature. The show & tell. Where we all show what we made that day or the previous week if we didn’t blog about it.
Leonie has headed this up so you can also check out this other talented Kiwi!
Mid month shopping haul…..
I hope to mold the the wooden embellishments with amazing mold putty so I can make more out of clay as I need those embellishments again. The card stocks will immediately be made into spaceships for my sons birthday and anything left is basic card bases for future projects. And yes you guessed it the blades are for cutting out the spaceships and the stencils I’ve been making.
Got to keep the basics all stocked up aye.
Keep crafting and till next time.
Hi all – you saw it here first! I posted this tutorial on my blog first… then I will release it on youtube and fiskars craft later.
Here’s something that is special…
My love at Christmas time is seeing those mini villages… Little lit up houses set in old fashioned times. I’ve always wanted a hole village and a huge display… But the prices have been high on these things and the place to put them hasn’t been available to me….
Now I have the space… And I finally think I have the skill to make a village. but the best thing about it all is that I can show you how to make one for yourself! At a fraction of the cost of those expensive little houses!
All you need per house is:
A paper trimmer with scoring blade or a scoring tool
Two sheets of double sided patterned card stock
One sheet of printer sized white card stock
Small detail scissors
Clear plastic packaging or acetate or velumn
Clear glitter glue
Flower soft in white or ivory
Self healing cutting mat
White glue – elmers or flower soft glue
Acrylic paints and a black marker pen – for the stained glass window
Part 1: cutting out the building base and making the windows
Part 2: making the chimney/bell tower and final finishing touches
Thanks so much for watching…
I hope to make a general store too.. But that is time permitting.
Any building can be made, really, with just the above instructions and templates with a little bit of tweaking here and there for each different building.
All the best and hope your Christmas decorating wishes come true.
Here are closeups of the house…
see ya later….

Hi there I’ve been cardmaking….
But just following instructions online I’m getting lazy… Or I’m just having a rest from doing instructions myself?
Kristina Werner has been an inspiration of mine for a very long time on you-tube and she is currently doing a Christmas card series… Think it’s 25 days of Christmas cards… So I have done some of those lessons today. 5 of them… I’m learning new techniques and finding out new ways of doing things while actually doing the cards and not just watching…
So here are my cards and no my cards are not Christmas cards but everyday cards…
The colouring in of the bunny card was done with water soluble pencils not copics like she uses…. I don’t buy copics as I prefer pencils instead…. No drying up of ink in the pen because I haven’t used them for months that way. and pencils are cheaper too.
Thanks for dropping by….
Will start a new theme soon here…. “Use up my stash.”
Keep an eye out it maybe worth it.
Have fun everyone and happy crafting!
Welcome to the Creative Paperclay(R) and Amazing Mold Putty DT blog hop
(warning – because of time differences in the USA to Here in New Zealand I may be a bit early or late.. many apologies if this is the case.)
If you came from: Molly Walsh http://molly1989-mollysplace.blogspot.com/ then you are in the right place.
If you just happened to fall into this post via search or you are a subscriber/reader of my blog then you are welcome to go back to the start of the blog hop at creative paperclay http://creativepaperclay.blogspot.com
don’t forget to leave some love on every blog…. and at the end you can vote for you fave project and go into the draw to win a great prize package!
And here is how I made it:
You will need:
- Creative Paperclay (R) – available in NZ at ZigZag.co.nz
- Amaizing Mold Putty
- Bead shaped similar to a berry shape
- Leaves from a plant
- Ink pads (light brown and dark brown)
- fave background stamp (I used the basket weave by Sandra Strait)
- Acrylic paints (Red and green)
- Black marker pen
- small chain
- scissors and nail file
step 1: take the Mold Putty and with equal amounts of part A and Part B mix them together, then put the Leaves and beads into the Mold Putty.
step 3: take some clay and make it onto a block for the background. Set aside to air dry.
I often take out the clay carefully when it is wet but you can leave it to dry in the mold if you wish… it will just take longer to air dry. Set aside the wet clay to air dry for a few days.
step 7: once the background rectangle is dry ink the background directing applying the lighter brown ink pad to the piece all over… then Stamp the background image with darker brown ink pad.
Then finally stick all your pieces onto your base and you are done!
Thanks so much for joining us
