I've been meaning to tell you about..

How synch-i-cated (sorry - 11 y.o. vocab), how simple it is to make your own stationery. I just opened up a mini envelope, traced around it onto a lovely Aussie picture book (50 cents at vinnies). Used my bone folder to do nice folds (but you could used a ruler to smooth the creases..) Then glued along the 2 bottom diagonals.
Aaah so then i had to make a matching card.. so out came the rubber, i carved out the koala. STAMPED. and theeeen i HAD to hand paint it... 'cos why stick to 2 steps when you can have 3?


After a wee walk around the neighbourhood - i carved out the pods + leaves on the right. This was then scanned in and coloured on the computer. SOOooooooo if you're getting a bit keen to try this stamping thing stay tuned for the good news...

I'm liking the seeds and leaves and pods a lot. And the envelope is super cute too.
