PHOTOS OF CARDS AS PROMISED


Hi Everyone,

The ladies all enjoyed the card making workshop that I held at Jemalong Residential Village.

As promised here are the photos of the cards.

 
In this card, the residents had to colour in the flowers and sayings with chalks and then assemble it.

 
I adapted this card from the card that Sonia Gibson had designed. I just love this tiger stamp.

 
The ladies enjoyed tearing the cardstock and using the Rollagraph stamp for this card.
 
 
The ladies all want me to go back and teach them some more. I really enjoyed seeing the look on their faces when they had completed their cards. It was priceless.
 
 
Yours in Kaszazz, Fiona.

A VERY BUSY DAY TODAY


Hi Everyone,

I have a busy day today. I am organising the kits for my Sunday afternoon workshop for a lovely group of ladies. I love teaching the Tim Holtz techniques. They are just so much fun.

On Sunday morning, I will be teaching a group from the Jemalong Residential Village. They will be making four cards. I will post a photo of the cards when I get a chance.

It really is a great creative activity when you make cards or complete a scrapbooking layout. Kaszazz make it so simple by using their fantastic range of exclusive papers and SB cardstock.

Yours in Kaszazz, Fiona.

GREAT DAY TODAY


Hi Everyone,

Today I had the pleasure of demonstrating card making to 10 ladies. They were all new to card making and it was great to see them enjoying learning something new. It was a great social event and morning tea and lunch was excellent.

We made cards using our Masking Tape, our gorgeous Tiger stamp and the use of Distress Inks to turn a plain white tag into a really beautiful embellishment.

 
This beautiful card designed by Julie Storti shows how our masking tape can be used in card making.
 
 
This gorgeous card was designed by Sonia Gibson and is titled "Black and White Father's Day Card". It really shows the detail in the Tiger stamp.
 
 
This gorgeous tag was designed by Sonya Edwards and was inspired by Blended Sunset Cards by Simone Slater. I just love using the Distress range of products which Tim Holtz created.
 
I have been asked by these ladies to make it a monthly workshop. This is so exciting for me. I love the opportunity given to me by Kaszazz to teach people to use our amazing range of products. This really is my passion.
 
Yours in Kaszazz, Fiona.
 
 

LOVING KASZAZZ


Hi Everyone,

I had a great day on the 12th May. I went to Bogan Gate and met a wonderful group of ladies that run the Art and Craft Centre. I demonstrated 3 cards and then everyone had a turn of being creative. It was so much fun.

I demonstrated how to use the following items from Kaszazz:
  • Design Adhesives,
  • Chalks, and
  • Distress Inks

 
This lovely Design Adhesives Card was inspired by a card designed by Belinda Rigney
 
 
This beautiful card is called Chalked Frangipani Card and was designed by Nicky Winter.
 
 
This lovely card is titled Distress Script Retro Flower Card and was designed by Jo Button.
 
 
I just love demonstrating the various products in the Kaszazz range and love to teach people how easy it is to create a card.
 
Yours in Kaszazz, Fiona.

NEW TECHNIQUE WITH DISTRESS MARKERS

Hi Everyone,

Over the weekend, I was having a look at different techniques in card making and papercraft.

I came across one that was called: "Distress Marker Background". This makes an ideal background for your cards or can be used to make embellishments for your layouts.

Items needed:
  • Kaszazz Diamond Background or Chevron Background Stamp
  • Perfect Medium Inkpad
  • Watercolour paper
  • Puff Static Away! Pillow
  • White Embossing Powder or Black Embossing Powder
  • Heat tool
  • Mini Mister filled with water
  • Distress Markers in your choice of colours
Method:
  1. Using your Puff Static Away Pillow, wipe over your piece of watercolour paper.
  2. Stamp your background stamp using Perfect Medium Ink.
  3. Pour over the White Embossing Powder, and tap gently to remove excess powder.
  4. Heat stamped image with the heat tool.
  5. Colour in unembossed areas of your stamped and embossed image using the distress markers.
  6. Once you have finished colouring in, use your mini mister to spray water onto it.You will see that the colours blend nicely when doing this.
  7. Dab excess water off with a paper towel. You can dry the image with a heat tool if desired.
