It's time for a new chapter!

The past 8yrs of being a Kaszazz Consultant have been amazing, but it's time for me to move on to something a bit different. You may not have heard much from me recently, and that's one of the reasons I've chosen not to continue being a consultant right now. I still love Kaszazz products, and will no doubt continue to purchase from a Consultant, but I haven't been putting in the time and effort I've needed to. So, it's with sadness that I've decided not to continue my creative journey as a Kaszazz consultant. I've met, or got to know better, many wonderful people during my time as a consultant, including you!

I'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported me over this time, including my husband, who's been my biggest supporter! I will continue being creative and pursuing crafty endeavours, even if I don't quite know what that looks like right now.

I've had requests to order products, so I'll be placing my last Kaszazz order on Monday 28th August. Let me know if there's anything you'd like me to order in for you.

Thank you again for all your support, and happy crafting!

P.S. I will be having a craft sale early next month. See the pic above for details.

A Simple Birthday Card

As promised, here's a simple card I made for a friend's birthday.

I've used a strip of one of the Majestic papers magic mounted onto Oatmeal cardstock. The sentiment is from the Mini Messages - Greetings stamp set and stamped in Black Soot Distress Ink onto Oatmeal. All edges have been inked with Black Soot DI. In the top right corner I've stamped the script from the Espirit Verveine set and then finished off with some mustard coloured waxed twine on the side. The bow is held in place with a glue dot.

Missing in Action!

Over two years since my last post! Life certainly has been busy in that time! We've moved twice, the second time into our new home! I've gone back to work full time and although I'm still happily crafting with Kaszazz, my blog posts have gone by the wayside! I'll try and post back here more often. Tomorrow I'll be sharing a beautiful card using some of the recently released Kaszazz products, and soon I'll share a tour of my new craft space! I am still finding where everything fits best and what suits.

The Day I Met Tim Holtz!

Being a Kaszazz consultant has many rewards. Sometimes those rewards come in the form of income and product. We receive lots of information and advice on how to run successful businesses and Kaszazz provide support for all their consultants, regardless of monthly sales. We have access to all Kaszazz projects, so being a consultant doesn't mean you have to be creative!

All these things make being a consultant a worthwhile and wonderful experience. But then, even Kaszazz out-do themselves!

Over the weekend I had the opportunity as a Kaszazz consultant to not just meet, but also be taught by the man most cardmakers and stampers would consider to be the guru! Apart from his extraordinary vision when it comes to stamping, Tim Holtz has been instrumental in bringing forth new products and ideas for the stamper and cardmaker. He's a 'stamper's stamper'! Meeting him has definitely been the highlight of my crafty career!

If you haven't 'met' Tim Holtz yet, why not introduce yourself to his fabulous line of Distress products - I defy you not to fall in love with him!

Liebster Blog Award!

What an honour and amazing surprise!

Fellow blogger and follower of Kaszazz with Tanya, Arnoldo of A.L. Romero Art and Design, has given me the Liebster Blog Award!

I must admit to feeling a little awed and would like to thank Arnoldo for the award and for following my blog! Arnoldo has always left such positive and lovely comments on my work. I encourage you to check out his blog as well - you're bound to find something you love there! Arnoldo is a wonderful artist, cardmaker and creative writer!

The Liebster Blog Award is awarded to show appreciation of smaller blogs (under 200 followers) and to help with readership. As part of the tradition, the award is to be passed along to five other blogs that have motivated and inspired me.

To accept the Award you must:
1. Thank your Leibster Award sender on your Blog;
2. Link back to your sender on your Blog;
3. Copy and paste your Leibster onto your Blog;
4. Present the Leibster Award to 5 other Blogs with 200 or less Followers that you feel deserves some attention and recognition for awesome stuff;
5. Let them know they have been chosen by leaving them a comment on their Blog.

So, now it's my turn to do what Arnoldo and many others before him have done, and pick the five blogs I'd like to give this award to. If you can visit their blogs, I'm sure they'd be grateful, and you'll gain some valuable knowledge and ideas!

1. Ink's Scrapping Spot by my good friend, Ingrid. Ingrid is a Creative Memories Consultant and enjoys both traditional and digital scrapbooking. Ingrid also enjoys a bit of cardmaking. You can find a good mix of all three, plus more on her blog.

2. Stamp Scrap Embellish by fellow Kaszazz consultant, Debbie. Deb is a kind and giving person (and my Kaszazz Team Leader). On her blog, she shares her artistic flair through off the page projects, cards, scrapbook layouts and much more! She is a constant source of inspiration to me!

3. Danielle's Kaszazz Blog by consultant, Danielle. Danielle's blog features up-to-date information on what's going on with Kaszazz, and has the added bonus of videos, made by Danielle using a wide variety of Kaszazz products!

4. 5 Cheeky Monkeys by Maria. I've just found Maria's blog, but she has an interesting collection of all things crafty!

5. Dancing in the Puddles by Card Crazy. This blog has great inspiration and lots of card making ideas!
