all sorts…

Okay, okay, it’s been a while, I am sorry! Do you forgive me? If it is any consolation I have been really busy getting a bunch of projects ready to show, including a stationery set, an invitation suite and some greeting cards. The greeting cards and stationery  I will be able to show you soon, but the invitations will have to wait a bit longer. The invitations are for a friend’s wedding and I am also styling the candy buffet and making a wedding cake for her. I am supper-dooper excited to be doing the candy buffet and wedding cake, they are a bit out of my comfort zone, especially the cake, but it will be a wonderful challenge! I will make sure I keep you posted on all the progress, we can enjoy the experience together!

As for designing other things, my list is growing and growing of ideas for projects but as of yet I have not gotten very far as I have been working a lot lately, now that I have finished university for the year. But hopefully I will eventually get around to them as I would love to start ticking things off my list and trying to produce something of selling quality.

With lots of ideas for designs has come lots of research on the best way to produce them, for example looking at wonderful die-cutting machines. As I am sure you can imagine, a student can’t afford extensive and expensive machinery and neither can or should they pay for dies to get made for only a few cuts, so I have been looking at die-cutting machines focusing on the scrapbooking audience. There is a huge range of different cutters and I have narrowed it down to 3 that can cut my own designs. 2 of them a hugely out of my price range but quite a bit better than the one that I can somewhat afford, so it is hard to decide what to do. I think I will wait and save for the more expensive one but it is soooo hard to be patient with soooooooo many ideas flying around in my head!

So all in all I am sorry I don’t have anything to show you at this point in time, but hopefully in the next few weeks I will have something that can be displayed here for you all to gawk at!

FIXATION

Okay, for my large design project this semester I had to do a design for a CD Album. It took 6 weeks but was the funnest thing ever, the design centralising around grunge and coffee. So lots of mess, lots of coffee and lots of stains. Oops! here are the final products.

 

These next two are images of the brochure that has an image to describe each song. 

 

 

 

 

Finished…

Okay, WOW, it has been awhile, sorry about that. I have had a busy few months of university and the time I did have free was spend relaxing. But now I have finished my first year of uni, I handed in my last assignment last thursday night and now I am ready to start posting things again.

So first of all I have lots of design stuff to show you which I will gradually get up on here, plus a little bit of design news I will share in a few days or weeks, we will see how we go. But first I will start my posting again with a little bit of ‘baking’ I have been busy with the last few days.  These delicious treats are what I call Strawberry Ripes. Now I found a recipe on Pinterest but I changed it a bit because it called for cherries and although I looked high and low for some fresh cherries I could not find any anywhere. So I decided to change the recipe a bit and experiment a bit with it. Well, they turned out AMAZING, and have the added bonus of having very little sugar in them, the 85% dark chocolate having extremely low sugar content!  I want to look into making my own chocolate so that it is completely sugar free but we will see how we go!

 

Anyways, I will be back soon with more to show, so have a great day and weekend and make sure you check back for more!
