So grab a cuppa, sit back and enjoy!

At first when I said I'd join the Blog Hop,
I thought I'd make a few things specially.

Then I ran out of time ... I've been so busy...
... oh well ... I'll just have to show the one card I made with the new Artistic Etchings set ...
... which I love ...

... but then I thought about what I've been busy doing...

... getting ready for my catalogue launch ...

... and for a French night our church is holding ....

Hang on!!

That Artistic Etchings set has barely left my hot little hands
since it arrived on my doorstep a few weeks back!

So ... instead of just one card (above)
you can also see some of the other things I've been making!

For my launch I've been using Melon Mambo, Basic Black and Very Vanilla.
A great combo!
And I love the Newsprint DSP ... will be buying more of that set ...

Pillowboxes for my guests (these contain cute paperclips):

Little booklets with a stamped cover:

Decorated takeaway boxes to put all those goodies in
(boxes from a $2 shop but I would get a Big Shot die next time and make a box from cardstock, I had so much trouble with the plastic boxes splitting)

and my personal favourite - cupcakes!

Love these and will definitely use this idea again!

But hey, what's not to love about a cupcake???

For our French night that our church is running, we've plain brown lunch bags elegant with the Eiffel Tower image and the Very Vintage wheel, (sorry, no photo)

decorated chocolate coins:

and I took candles from "plain church candle" to "very French candles" in a matter of minutes

(using the tissue paper method).

For the French night we've been using a colour theme of
Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand and Regal Rose.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing what I've made with this gorgeous set - and hope that you are inspired to get it for yourself!

This shift is a crucial part of my heritage, my mother dressed their bride-to-be. We attach great importance as a contemporary Western women, informal, comfortable clothes.
