Here is another project I have been working on. Its a Yearly Card Organiser. I have this available as a pre-printed Cardstock/DSP Kit with Tutorial or available as a PDF, the tutorial only with all the required printable templates.
The Yearly Card Organiser is a great way to keep track of and be super organised for any upcoming birthdays or special occasions. Each month has that months printed dates and includes a pocket for to hold any pre-prepared cards. So you should never have the excuse of missing any upcoming birthdays again, just check which cards you need to pre-pare for the particular month and have them sitting inside that particular months pocket waiting for the time to come.
Why not make one for yourself and they also make fantastic gifts.
In kit - (available to be posted Australia Wide) You will receive all the required cardstock and DSP to complete, some further cutting will be required. Note: Stamped images and other embellishments are not included. The completed Example is for display purposes only.
Additional Items you will need to complete and not included in kit: Double Sided Adhesive Tape or Tombo Liquid Glue, Paper Trimmer with Cutting and Scoring Blade, Bone Folder. Stamps, punches, ink and embellishments to decorate and embellishments - as you wish. Other: you will either need a 1 ¼” binding comb and a use bind-it-all or take your finished project to a OfficeWorks or printers and have them bind your Yearly Card Organiser for you. Remember if you take it somewhere to be bound, make sure they realise that it will have cards added, so needs at least a 1 ¼” binding comb, to give it room to grow.
Or purchase the PDF Tutorial and Templates, detailing all the Cardstock, DSP, Punches and additonal items needed to complete, includes the templates used for the printed wording.

I am back to show you my latest Punch Art Creation - introducing "Willy the Worm" Bookmark. "Willy the Worm" is a recreate from a design I played with last year, in which I made these cute worm bookmarks and used them as my Stampin' Up! Convention Swaps.
I also made a fit to size matchbook cover, which the book mark easily slips in and out of for cute gift giving. I have redesigned using a couple of different punches and have my "Willy the Worm" punch art design now available as a pre-punched cardstock punch art kit or tutorial only. The pre-punched cardstock kit also comes with a pre-cut and scored matchbook cover and Giant Paper clip - kit makes two.

Ok I am back to show what I have created together with my Nuggets 'n' notes Gift Set (thanking my friend Sharon for the name suggestion) and my latest punch art creation "Ozzie the Owl".
Pictured below is the "Ozzie the Owl Nuggets 'n' Notes Gift Pack. It includes four cute little Punch Art Note Cards and envelopes (made using the Stampin' Up! Sizzix Big Shot Scallop Envelope Die).
I have finalised my Nuggets 'n' Notes turorial and this is available as a pre-cut cardstock and DSP kit. I am just working on finishing my "Ozzie the Owl Note Card" punch art tutorial and this will be available shorlty.
Here is another "Nuggets 'n' Notes Gift Set, I have created, this time I used Play Date Designer Series Paper and the cute little lady bugs are all made from Stampin' Up! punches, the inspiration for the Lady Bugs were from Andrea Walford's website from a card made by Sophia.

Hello All, I am back quickly to show you another new Punch Art Owl I have created and he is so so soooo cute.
In between trying to get some last minute Easter orders completed, work on some new projects, I just had to have a play with my punches and get this little fella out of my head. I am very happy with the finished cute result. Introducing Ozzie the Owl (thanks goes to Jackie for the name suggestion).
Ozzie has been made by using the same concept as my Ollie the Owl card design that I showed yesterday, but he is in miniture (and again all made with Stampin' Up! Punches). Ozzie is very tiny, he fits perfectly into the Stampin' Up! Scallop Envelope Die cut, and makes the perfect note or gift tag that I am sure anyone who likes owls, will love to receive. Below is an example of the size difference between Ozzie and Ollie the Owls Cards.
Ok, I better stop playing and get back to work, I have Ollie the Owl Card tutorial and kit completed, but I allso need to finish off the three unfinished tutorials I have on the go, I will be back shortly to show you my next tutorial/kit featuring Ozzie the Owl.
Kind Regards Angela

I am back again, this time to show you what I have been playing with, hehe Sale-a-bration has ended and its only now that I have had a chance to have a play with the stamp sets, I have used the butterfly from Bliss (my favorite) and So Happy for You for the sentiments.
Ok back to what I have been making. Its a Chocolate and Card Gift Pack, I found the idea from Becky Roberts - Inkin Idaho. Becky made a Giant Nugget Box, which held three Hershy Chocolate Nuggets and Four 3 x 3 Note Cards in a cute little gift box. Below is the one I made form the turorial Becky has available on her website.
Well I thought that these were a great gift giving idea, however when I give cards, I like to include envelopes, so I re-designed one that would not only hold the 3 x 3 cards and but also some 3 1/2" envelopes that I had on hand. Below is Beckys version (left) and my version on the right which is now holding four Hershey Nuggets and matching envelopes for the 3 x 3" cards.
Well of course every now and then I like to outsmart myself and it wasnt until I went to create the slider cover for my version, I realised that no way could I use a A4 sheet of cardstock as it was too small to wrap around the now bigger box. To finish it off, I have used a 12 x 12" cardstock sheet, but I needed to go back to the drawing board so that I wasnt wasting so much cardstock. And I just love what I came up with, took me all day to get my measurements right, but well worth it.
Below is a comparison of the varous versions, Becky's left, mine (1st version) right and my final version is the below middle.
I am really happy with how my version turned out. I also wanted to utilise more Stampin' Up! products. I have been able to bring in the Stampin' Up! Sizzix BigShot Scallop Envelope Die, so I also get my note cards, and matching envelopes. While the Scallop Envelope Die does make a small envelope, it is just a perfect size for a card to give with a bunch of flowers or other small gifts such as Jewellery etc. Plus I get to make it from A4 sized Cardstock. Just a perfect card, envelope and Chocolate gift pack for gift giving.
The DSP I used is this one is the current Elegant Soriee.
Here is another version made using the current Love Letter DSP, love how this one turned out also.
I will soon be offering my version as a pre-cut kit - or even as a class by mail for you to create for your own gift giving. Ok I am off now to go and have a play with some other colors.

Well I have had a productive weekend, I have finally just finished my latest tutorial for the Matchbox Easter Bunny Gift / Treat Box.
Its just in time too, as I needed the tutorial completed for a Easter Bunny class that some very enthusiastic crafty ladies are so looking forward too.
Here they are in Whisper White and Chocolate Chip, with Pretty in Pink - and a perfect size for some mini Easter Eggs, six fit in perfectly.
I have had these on the go for a little while now, if you saw my Matchbox Kitty Cats a few weeks ago, well it was these Matchbox Easter Bunnies that I was making at the time, that inspired me to turn the bunny into a cat. But here I am back to finally show off the Matchbox Easter Bunny.
I will have these available to purchase as a Pre-cut Kit or as a PDF Step-by-Step pictured Tutorial only - shortly.

Hello all, I have finally made the time and have been playing my Matchbox Owl Tutorial, and made a couple of new owls, which were made using the Stampin' Up! Exclusive Sizzix BigShot Dies and Various Stampin' Up! punches.
I need to change my kits as one of the colors I have used is a retired Stampin' Up! favourite color of mine - Close to Coco, and my stash is nearly coming to an end.
Unfortantly in the current colors there is nothing similar to Close to Coco and I really struggle with the color Soft Suede, but I had no choice and had to use it. and I was pleasantly surprised when I had finished this little fella (below left), I really like it the end result. I think this color is begining to grow on me.
The second owl, I have been wanting to make a matchbox owl in white and make it similar to Harry Potter's Hegwig. Well tonight was the night, except I forgot that I had lent out my Basic Gray ink, so improvised with Sahara Sand instead. I will make a gray and white (Hegwig Owl) yet.
Above is a quick pic of the two standard size MatchBox Owls and the midlle is the modified Gift Card Sized Owl, which will fit a Gift Card inside.
My tutorial includes instructions on how to create both sizes of MatchBox Owls.
A PDF tutorial is available for purchase and an be emailed world wide.
A pre-cut kit with all the pre-cut/punched pieces and a colored step-by-step pictured tutorial is available for postage to Australian Residents only.
Various Die cuts and replace ment kit pices are also available. Check out my WebStore to purchase, located on the top toolbar.

New Punch Art tutorial and pre cut kit available – Matchbox Kitty Cat Gift Box
Hello all, I have had this design ready to go for a little while and not had time to get it out there, well finally here it is – how cute are they??
Here is my Matchbox Kitty Cat Gift Box, made using the Stampin’ Up! Exclusive Matchbox and Top Note die and various Stampin’ Up! punches.
The design of this come about from another project that I was working on, and as I was piecing it together, I thought that it could look like a cat, if I tweaked it here and there and that was the start of my matchbox Kitty Cat Gift Box. Hehe, I still haven’t finished the original project though.
In my examples I have made a Ginger Kitty Cat, using Stampin’ Up! More Mustard Cardstock and Stampin’ Write Marker, then sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip Ink. The second Kitty Cat, I have used Basic Gray Cardstock, Stampin’ Write Marker and Ink. I have added a bell on some fine string for added effect of a bell and collar.
Of course I just had to modify the Matchbox Die cut to make a gift box that would hold a gift card (it holds a gift card and giant Freddo perfectly) and this one I have named “Toby puss”, if you have meet my cat Toby, then you will understand why I have named this fat cat design Toby (sorry Tobes).
The Tutorial also includes instructions on how I have made “Toby Puss” which will fit a gift card, this is made by modifying the cardstock prior to die cutting from the Matchbox die.
This cute little gift box is the perr-fect gift packaging for any little gift and can be decorated and embellished as you wish for any occasion. perfect for jewellery, chocolates, treats or even cash etc.
Please see my Web Store to purchase either - Just the PDF tutorial (emailed) or a DIY Kit which includes a printed tutorial, Die Cut and punched pieces to make two of the standard Matchbox Kitty Cat Gift Boxes (in More Mustard or Basic Gray) – colors can be altered or additional die cuts and pre punched pieces can also be purchased (Australian Residents Only).

Hello Everyone, I hope you have all had a great weekend, mine has been great and I have had plenty of time to have a play.
I have had a remake my Top Note Get Well Gift Box, this time using the current Stampin' Up! Elegant Soriee Designer Series Paper.
The Top Note Get Well Gift Pack was designed to cheer up anyone who is under the weather or feeling down, it holds a packet of Kleenex Pocket tissues in the top box and the bottom slider holds some lemon tea bags and cough drops or everyones pick me up CHOCOLATE, by changing the goodies it holds you can change to suit any reason for gift giving.
Pictured above left, I have used Soft Suede as the Cardstock Base and pictured above right, I have used one of my favorite cardstock colors - Baja Breeze as my base color and then layered with Top Note Cardstock and DSP Die Cut pieces, made using the Stampin' Up! Sizzix BigShot Die Cutting machine.
With the above Top Note Get Well Gift Pack, I added a bit more embelishment. The pansy was inspired from a cool YouTube video - Pretty Paper Pansies by Darlene Plotinski. It is made using the Stampin' Up! Butterfly punch, which I have sponged the edges with Baja Breeze and the centre with Not Quite Navy and finished of with a rhinestone brad for a bit of bling. I have die cut the leaves from Crumb Cake Cardstock, using the Stampin' Up! Exclusive Little Leaves Sizzlits Die. The sentiment I have used the Scallop Oval Punch and the Large Oval Punch and the greeting is from Sincere Salutations stamp set
If you would like to make the Top Note Get Well Gift Pack, I have a Step-by-Step pictured tutorial available for purchase in my webstore (tutorial only), the PDF tutorial will be emailed to you within 24 hours of receiving your payment. Or if you are located in Australia a Pre-cut and scored Cardstock/DSP kit with printed tutorial can also be purchased in my webstore (Pre-cut kit).

Just a very quick post to show you an idea I had, and just had to whip it up. It is made using the Stampin' Up! Exclusive Candy Wrapper Die and various Stampin' Up! Punches.

I will have a kit available for the Candy Wrapper Bunny Box shortly.
