It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in our house.... I love the Stampin'Up! Banner Simply Created kits. I have used the banners but have designed my own accessories with Season of Style Designer series paper, Cherry cobbler 1" stitched edge grosgrain ribbon, Silver 1/8" ribbon, Festive Flurry framelits, Snow Flurry die (retired), Designer rosette die, Gift bow die, Cherry cobbler, Old olive, Early Espresso ink and cardstock,1 3/4 circle punch, scallop circle die, Typeset alphabet dies, sponge daubers and hot glue.
Just a close up of the bows on the top of three pennants......
The rosettes with festive flurry framelit die cut......
The banner will be pride of place in my house this year and many more to come.....It was great fun to make...
I recently held a workshop for some special Ladies and we made this wonderful gift box and card set. The tutorial was purchased from the talented Tanya Bell at StampingT. I just changed the designer series paper and made a simple bow. I really appreciate all the talented craft ladies that make tutorials for us to buy. I can use my time teaching and creating ** smile**
The gift box and three cards
The simple bow created with the Stampin'Up! Bow Die
I used the Winter Frost Designer Series paper for this set. White, Smoky Slate, Silver Foil and Pool Party cardstock. Thank You Tanya :) Suzie
A big Happy 70th Birthday to my wonderful Dad, Keith Biddle. He truly is the best father and grandfather anyone knows. He has been a great role model for my daughters as they have grown up. We love him dearly.
The new Stampin'Up! Gift Bow Bigz L Die on page 37 Holiday Catalogue is this seasons MUST HAVE PRODUCT... Great for making your gifts look extra special. You can use this die to make a large assortment of fancy bows and lots of other projects too. I used the Seasons of Style designer series paper for this bow. The centre was created with a 7/8" circle and a large rhinestone. The thank you is from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set. Suzie

Everyone that knows me....knows I love my Off The Page Projects. These are my MOST favourite things to make. When I saw the Stampin'Up! Witches Brew Designer Series Paper this year....arrrr I just flipped. Off to Big W to buy a 12 x 12 shadow box and devoted both pieces of Witches Candy paper to my project.
I fussy cut lots of the elements from one piece of DSP and mounted them with dimensionals, coloured some words with my pumpkin pie pen. I used candy dots in pumpkin pie and very vanilla to put in the centre of the dotted lines. I also put crystal effects on the spider at the bottom to make him bubble out.
I used some pumpkin black dots paper and covered the photo mount inside the frame.
I hope you like how it turned out.....I'm THRILLED to bits. Soon I will have no walls in my house left to hang frames on....hahaha Now back to making my Halloween goodies for the Trick or Treaters...... Suzie
You may have seen my Name Frames before.... I love making these frames for the little people in my life and my friends. I custom make them to any theme you like. I use Stampin'Up! products but cut the letters out with my Cricut machine. I have made quite a few now. Everyone is different.....that's what I love about them.
This is my latest creation.....A Frame for Tyler (my cousins little boy) He loves trucks and diggers so this will match his bedroom perfectly.
I used the " I Dig You" stamp set from last year and cut and layered the wheels and bodies of the vehicles. I used silver brads in the middle of the wheels.
Here are the two frames for Tammy and Michael's children together. They will look wonderful on the walls of their new bedrooms.
And here is Tyler picking up his frame. He was so excited. Isn't he a very handsome little man. Suzie

Lots of you may already know, my gorgeous daughter Allanna makes Nappy Cakes as a hobby. She has her own little sideline hobby and sells her nappy cake creations to family, friends and market followers around South East Queensland.
Her latest creation just needed a little bit of Stampin'Up! finishing, thanks to my craftroom.......
The customer had asked for the baby's name to be on the Nappy basket so what a creative way to showcase the new bub's name......A pennant banner!!!!
Using the Stampin'Up! Perfect Pennants Bigz Die and the Typeset Alphabet Die
I love helping Allanna with the finishing touches.....she is a lucky girl to have a fully stocked craftroom on hand 24/7......LOL Thanks to my Stampin'Up! addiction :) Suzie
August in Queensland is a wonderful time to have a beach wedding.....I can finally share the results of many hours of cutting and stamping. I had the pleasure of making the invitations and wedding items for my dear friend Lee's daughter.
The beach wedding theme with Sahara Sand, Whisper White and Concord Crush featuring the Stampin'Up! By the Tide and Stipple Shells(retired) stamp sets.
Showing the details on the front of the wedding invitation.
All the invitations were computer printed but hand stamped.
The inside had a pocket with 3 information cards.....RSVP, Wishing Well and Directions
The wedding favours made with the candy wrapper die. Each had the guests names printed on the front and acted as a place card as well.
Triangular Table Menu that graced the centre of each table at the reception.
And to finish off.....Thank you cards All Stampin'Up! products were used except the white mesh ribbon and the silver sea themed trinkets.
Congratulations on your wedding, Teagan and Shaun. Best wishes for a treasured future in marriage and being the best parents to little Jack.
