It has been a little while since I have done a Layout, considering I used to do approx 7 LOs per week till I discovered Cardmaking :)
I used the gorgeous Webster's Paper Collection- Waiting for Santa on this LO & the cute lil boy is my son Brody hahaha!

The big Holly Flowers were white but I sprayed my Cosmic Shimmer Mist on them to create the colour to suit the LO.

Good Morning & Happy Monday to all :)

Over the past week I have been busy & managed to do a few cards as well but as we have had
so much rain here in Rockhampton, I hadn't been able to get any pics done- but a brief break in
the weather this morning allowed me enough time to snap 2 of my latest cards woo hoo!

I Did 2 Tilda cards with my new stamps from the Merry lil Christmas Collection from Magnolia.
.....Yay!... I have so many to make this year hahaah! Whose bright idea was it to make cards
instead of buying them this year! ummmm I have made about 6 & have about 20 more to go!!!

Anyways I did a Pink Xmas card- a different colour for me & it did turn out cute tho & used
the Magnolia stamp- Jolly Tilda- she is so cuteeeee! The 2nd card, I used Secret Tilda- so
gorgeous this stamp is! On the red card, I heat embossed the Holly Leaves.

TFL Everyone & enjoy your week

Reveal # 3

Well the reveals of each new stamp in the Emerald Faeries Collection is almost over with 1 more to go tomorrow yay!

Today I would love to introduce to you my 3rd beautiful new lil guys stamp..............

..............THE LARAKINS- ASHTON & BOO........................

This cute little pair of Faeries are always into mischief- typical lil boys huh lol!

How the naming of this stamp came about is-: The Aussie slang for someone full of
mischief or just a little bit naughty or ok...really naughty lol is called a
Larakin! Ashton is named after my 3rd son Ashleigh- that is the male way of spelling
Ash too as I totally checked all that out when he was born hee hee:)& Boo is the
nickname of my 4th & youngest son Brody.

I did a tag style card with my image of The Larakins & you will have to wait & see
what I did with them for the RELEASE BLOG HOP ON WEDNESDAY!!!! too cool! :)

With this card, I drafted the Gum leaves & Gum nuts to really give this card an
Aussie feel & used colours that would suite the theme:)

Don't forget to check out the DT & GDT cards for their gorgeous "The Larakins"
cards...mmmmmmm just fabby!
Have a brilliant strat to your week

I can finally reveal the name of my new Collection Peeps- Ohhhh it has been so difficult to remain
so tight lipped about this Collection which is now finally in rubbah!!!

My company, Deb's Creations, wanted to bring to the stamping world a Collection that is both
different & Australian by nature- hence this amazing collection came into being:) My very talented
Illustrator, Linda Catchlove, has brought these 4 beautiful little faeries to life through her passion
of the Australian bushland & forests. Linda worked for the Walt Disney Studios here in Australia
 for 10 years before branching out to follow her dream & now has her own studio & is currently
working on her own artwork for her own Exhibition- whoot whoot!

Starting from this Saturday, all the DT & GDT that have been so busy working on cards using
these gorgeous Images will reveal their cards- 1 image per day through to next Tuesday. Then on
Wednesday the 10th of November, the Full Launch of the Collection will take place via a blog Hop
 with prizes of  hidden candy ect...fun...fun...fun:) The rubber stamps will be available for purchase
as of next Wednesday in my Online Store & are Exclusive!!! woo hoo!

Here is my 2nd Sneakie of my card- pretty tricky hey lol!

Have a brilliant day

I have a card to add today- Apple Tilda- she is just so darling! She is also a part

Thanks for stopping by Peeps



Friday, 22 October 2010


I did up this Cherry Tilda Card for the Challenge over at Cardabilities using their awesome Shetch #13
Had fun doing this card as I have used colours with my Copics that I hadn't used before- I am a
beginner LOL! I wanted to use a kind of Vintage style on my card- well I tried hahaha!

Here is the awesome Sketch & my Card-:

TFL Peeps, Hugz Deb


Happy Friday to everyone,

I have finally finished the Magnolia Wedding Rotunda for my son's wedding early next year:)
I used the Wedding Collection stamps from Magnolia & they suited perfectly. I used Yellows
& Purples to do the colours as this is their colour scheme. It was a big project but so much fun
to do.

Mel Baricoat- a Deb's Creations DT Lady, is the original designer of the Rotunda & if you
would love to have a go at doing it, the full instructions & templates are available for purchase
in my Online Store-:

Thanks for stopping by



Monday, 18 October 2010


I found this Tilda very trying! It was hard to pick a colour combo for her whilst keeping
the theme Australian:) She does remind me of Bindi Irwin tho. I handmade the 2 little
flowers & I have over edited the pic- making the blending look terrible lol!

Thanks for stopping by peeps & have a brilliant week



Saturday, 16 October 2010


Another update for my blog today- on a roll here lol!

What could go nicer together then sweet little Tildas & Flowers, kinda like icecream &
choc chips hey:) Yummo:) I have been trying to use up some of my scrap paper stash &
flower stash, so slowly getting there- I should be making Christmas Cards but constantly
get side tracked haha!

I used the beautiful Circus Tilda- in the pink, for 1 of the cards & an older Tilda from
my Magnolia Collection- 60s Tilda.

Thank you for stopping by Peeps & have a great weekend



Friday, 15 October 2010

Thursday, 14 October 2010


Morning Everyone,

I did this card last night using the super sweet little Twins Stamp for the Magnolia- Cozy
Autumn Collection- available in my Store. I used flowers from my flower stash & also a
Zva Creative Flourish & a lil cute Charmer from my Store as well

I had so much fun with my Copics colouring this cute image & got to try out my 4 new
Sketch Marker colour combo R81, R83 & R85 for the Pink Dress & B91, B95 & B97
for the Blue Dress. I used E000, E00 & E11 for the flesh colours plus R20 for the cheeks.

Thanks for stopping by



Monday, 4 October 2010


I have been off in Fairy Wonderland lately! I just love this lil Fairy from Wags N Whiskers

N Whiskers Release just around the corner- so exciting!!! I wanted to used the 4 special
lil visitors to my home lol!

TFL Peeps & have a brilliant week
