My best Release Ever!! EVER!!

Zoe May 20, 2011 20

Hi everyone,

Well if you are signed up to my newsletter or a FB fan then you have already heard about the fabulous new Make it Crafty release!

You must be loving them because they are flying out the door! Thank you everyone for your support and PLEASE oh PLEASE share your creations. It just so happens that this weeks challenge at Make it Colourful will be ‘PERFECT’ to experiment with these new images. Hint Hint.. hehee

OK OK… soooo there is just so much to share with you that I thought we would simply start with a card I made!! 🙂


Meet Siren of Pearls in her very own Clam Shell. I stamped both these images, coloured and then cut them out.

They are also available in the Mermaid collection as digi stamps.

I wanted to try and have her sitting on the bottom of the water and so I somehow got this idea to use my lasercut chipboard embellishments to create a scene.
It is VERY 3-Dimensional. Looks very cool in Real Life.

I used the very popular ‘Fine Swirls‘ and my newest addition ‘Round Leaves

I painted them with acrylic paints in different shades of green and I covered the corners (also in the fine swirls kit) with pink liquid pearls.

How cool do those gems?? They are see-through and they catch the light so well.
I got them HERE from Quixotic Paperie after
Annika threatened everyone if they didn’t get them… lol joking!!


I nearly forgot to add that when I showed Hubby the card he said “Oh the seaweed looks pretty cool and I like the Jelly fish”
I said – “What? Jellyfish? I was hoping they looked like bubbles!!”


So there’s HEAPS more…

and because I REALLY need to think about trying to go to bed I am going to copy and paste the Newsletter.



I am VERY excited to announce the new release is finally here!

It is the BIGGEST and most SPECTACULAR release yet!


There’s New Digi’s, New Rubber, New Stockists & a BIG LIVE PARTY!

I am so excited to share with you some of the most adorable characters illustrated by a new designer at Make it Crafty!

They are just PERFECT for all the colouring enthusiasts out there! 🙂

AND, if you are hooked on gorgeous long flowing hair like me, then you will be in HEAVEN!


BUT of course… It wouldn’t be a Make it Crafty release if I didn’t have background stamps right?


You will not be disapointed with 18 new landscapes and objects to choose from!!




And for those of you who have a tough time deciding which new images you want to play with first,
I have created some little collections to help!


Beach Collection

Mermaid Collection


Pirate Collection


Island Collection



PLUS ALL the New little Characters are available in RUBBER!!

And there are new rubber backgrounds perfectly sized to match the new characters!





I know Australia seems like it must be at the end of the world for many of you and so I have been feaverishly
working towards bringing the Make it Crafty product line closer to YOU!

I am excited to share with you that I now have a stockist in both the UK & USA!!


For all of you in the UK make sure you pop on over to

Quixotic Paperie
I have heard a rumor that Elaine has the new release of rubber, ready to fly out the door!


And for all of you in the USA make sure you drop by


Susana’s Custom Art and Card Designs

Susana will have the new release VERY soon!!!

DHL PROMISED me it should arrive tomorrow, so if you want to make sure you don’t miss out,
just send Susana a quick email to put aside your favourites!!



So if all this hasn’t tipped you over the edge with excitement yet then I have one last chance….


I’m having a


to celebrate!!!

I’m pretty nervous but REALLY excited.

For those of you who enjoy colouring as much as I do, I would love you to join the fun.

You’ll be able to ask me on the spot questions and hopefully I’ll be able to
offer some tips and advice and even ‘show’ you what I would do! 🙂

PLUS of course there will be give aways and I have a few fun games to play too!


Where is this party???


Well to make it easier to bring everyone together where there is text chat,
the party will take place on Face Book.

I have a new PRIVATE group that is a lot of fun and you can hide your crafting obsession
from all your ‘normal’ friends and family. hehehe

Come join the Group Here!


I even set up one of those FaceBook Event thingies!



What time will the party begin??


Well that was a tough one so I decided to have TWO!!!

I may also have another around 8pm Saturday night QLD/Australia time for all my
Aussie mates who can’t make the afternoon!!

Email me, or chat to me on FB if you want a third!!
If there is enough interest I’ll hold my eyes open with pegs if I have to! 🙂


Live Party One!

5:00am this Saturday Morning (QLD time)

This will make it 8:00pm FRIDAY night in the UK


Live Party Two!!

1:00pm this Saturday Afternoon (QLD time)

This will make it around 8:00pm FRIDAY night in California (USA)



OK so I have to hurry myself up and get myself some sleep or I will be a complete ZOMBIE in the morning!!!

I hope you can make one of the shows!!!


Big Aussie Squeezes!!
