This is something a little different from me.  I have been wanting to use this stamp set for a little while but wasnt sure how. I have used it to make boys cards but there is this little bird and another in the set, along with these designs that look like ?? long flowers or grass or something.

I was going to enter this in Fiona's challenge but I am afraid she will think I am stalking her. My next challenge for myself is to find a challenge site and submit to it.
Stepping outside my comfort zone once again.

This is a card made using a non stampin up stamp set, but using concord crush card, ribbon and ink and a new incolour lucky limeade(available from 1st September).

Thanks for looking, I would love to know what you think.

Birthday Wishes

Well, my beautiful girl turned 14 yesterday. My creative mojo just up and left. I have had so much trouble making the perfect card for her. So I decided on nice and simple, and she seemed to like it.

Just 3 pennants made into a banner, with a sentiment at the bottom.
Not my most creative but Ashleigh liked it.

Take care


Hello Everyone,
Well a busy week has been had by everyone.
I had been trying to make a birthday card for my gorgeous girl who turned 14 yesterday.
Wow, that crept up on me quickly.
I found these beautiful butterfly easel cards over at Bronwyn Eastley at addinktivedesigns, so decided to give one a go. I really have cased this card, just changed the colour of it. Bronwyn dose some lovely work, so please pop over and have a look.
I have used the new incolour of Wisteria Wonder and a sentiment from a new stamp set.
I am also going to enter this into the CAS challenge at Fiona's at Creations by Fi.

Hope you have all had a great weekend.
Michelle xoxo

Short and Sweet

I am having a run of these cards lately. They are a bit fiddly to score and make, but I just like the design.
This card is a lot simpler than the previous post.
Is it a CAS (Clean and Simple) card or not?
Have a great day,

Pink, Patchwork and Flowery??

Hi Everyone,
Thanks for stopping by to see today's card.
I was asked to make a couple of cards and the lady concerned likes pink and patchwork and sewing.
Well, you'd think that was easy...yeah right!!
I am not sure if I like this card or not, I think I have over done it a bit but will share any how.
This is my first attempt at patchwork in a card form, I just made it up as I went so it is probably not like how others do it.

Because of the flower and ribbon on the front of the card, I chose to make a envelope box to put the card in so the flower didn't get crushed.

So... what do you think about the card and box?
I'm still working on the photography too.
Thanks for stopping by,

Hello today

Hello for today,
Here is a card I made for a friend back in July.
I wanted something bright and cheery.
The marina mist and daffodil delight certainly made the card nice and bright.
Till Next Time,
Take Care

New Principal at Maribyrnong Primary School

I made this card to congratualte our new Principal on winning her position. Jenny Howard has been at Maribyrnong for some time now and is an inspiration to everyone. Jenny won the position of Principal this term and everyone at school is delighted.

It is another step card in Rich Razzelberry, I think it is nice and simple but elegant. What do you think?

Take care everyone,

Stamp a Stack samples.

These two cards are the other cards we made at the stamp a stack. Dasher again, but in green card this time. 
And here is the cute little owl bringing christmas greetings.
I have at least 2 or 3 cards made to give at christmas, but I had better get started on a heap more.

Have a great day,


I hosted my first Stamp A Stack back in July and had 7 lovely ladies come along. We made 2 different cards and 5 of each. The cards are relatively simple so things can get done easily.
I made a scallop circle card with dasher on the front (I do love dasher) and another using an owl for something different.
The girls seemed to like the cards and I hope you do to.
This is the card in the "red" version of dasher. I have since added some rhinestone bling to his antlers.


The card is fairly simple and Fiona over at Creations by Fi is having a CAS card challenge, so I am going to going to try and submit this card to the challenge.

Here goes nothing.

Well, I seem to have got the first part let's see if I can upload a photo of a card I recently made.
I have been making some centre fold cards recently, just for something different.

So here is one that I made.
This card is going to a very special person in my life. My MUM.
She loves to sew, or has done in the past, unfortunately though she has a little trouble these day.
This stamp set just reminds me so much of her. All my life there has been sewing machines, buttons, tape measures and reels of cotton in the house. In fact I have some of the old wooden cotton reels somewhere that we got from my Grandmother, they look a lot like the one on the card.

If you like this then please leave me a comment.


Hello and Welcome,
This is the first post on my Blog - Woodburn Crafts.
What an achievement this is for me. Who knows if it will make it online or not though.
I am making this bold jump into the online world so I can show my Mum, family and friends some of the crafty things I do when we are so many miles apart. I seem to be doing card making at present but I think I need to do another scrap book project soon.

I have to thank my friend, teacher and fellow card maker Fiona Platzer for encouraging me with this endeavour. We have been attending Fiona's card making classes for a couple of years now and they are always fun and inspirational. You can see some of Fiona's fabulous work over at Creations By Fi.

I will try and put some cards on here very soon. Wish me luck.

I hope you all enjoy visiting my blog and return soon.
Thank you
