Wahhooo..Crafty Fun:)

Welcome back this week to the craft desk here @ Sandybeaches :) I've had a chance to revisit these groovy fold-out cards that I experimented with last is a cool card for a special boy who is celebrating his birthday this year in  NZ in October!! I've used this weeks colours from Tuesday Alchemy (#32); the theme from Cute Card Thursday of 'A Different Shape' (#235) and the Just Add Ink theme of 'Just Add Kids' (#136)... with Stampin' Up papers, ink, ribbon, stamps & punches; Cuttlebug Embossing and a little bit of love...wahlah...a birthday card ready for a special someone:)
The second 'fold-out' card uses this weeks colour challenge #37 over at Festive Fridays - Stampin' Up! papers, stamps, brads, punches, brads and bling from the stash...ahhh the first Christmas card for this year @ Sandybeaches! Thank you FESTIVE here to check out the latest for inspiration!!

And the grand plan was to make a couple stay tuned for more fabulous fold-out cards:)
Hope your weekend was a good one!

My 200th POST!!! Wahooo:)

Hello and welcome back to the craft desk here @ Sandybeaches :) We have been busy at school creating Father's Day Cards 'aka' photo frames with Father's Day message on the back. We took photos of the kiddlywinks wearing 'workman' clothes & hat and gave them a hammer to hold. We turned it into a 'following the directions' activity and allowed them to be creative and place a variety of 'hardware' to create a much appreciated Father's Day!!
This weeks sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday (#171-103)is just a beauty!! Click here to go and have a lookie...and play along too if you have a chance!! I've put together this 'Happy New Baby' card using Stampin' Up! papers, sentiment and bling; Cuttlebug embossing; ribbons from the local craft shop and a whole lot of love. I popped into work today with the card, pressie and some white choc chip muffins to celebrate the up and coming arrival of a special bundle of joy for an awesome teacher:)
The last but not least card that I would like to share tonight is one using this weeks Crazy 4 Challenges (c4c153) was such a great sketch to play with!! Click here to pop in and check out their challenges:) I've used Stampin' Up! paper, stamp & sentiment, embossing folder & brads; checkered paper and balloon punch from the stash and wah lah...the latest creations here @ Sandybeaches :)
