Allanna's Nappy Basket

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  :)

Beach Wedding

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.
