Class events Timetable Stamping with DonnaG!!!!

Hello everyone welcome to my blog I just wanted to do a quick blog to update everyone on my up & Coming events for the Months of August & September.
I hold regular classes at my home for 1 person up to 6 people. If you were ever thinking of going to a class to learn the basic fundamentals of card making this is the class event for you. I always find out what level you are at and I make sure the class covers what you need to know for the level of crafting that you are at. I can guarantee that when you leave your first class you will be capable of making 2 beautifully crafted cards that you can take home with you to keep or give to someone special.

Hello & welcome to The Global Stamping Friends Special Anniversary Blog Hop for August 2017.
My name is Donna Gray & I am a Stampin Up!® Demonstrator from The Northern Rivers Area In New South Wales Australia I have been a demonstrator for just over a year now & this is my second time blog hopping with the Global Stamping Friends group. Our theme this month was a Special Anniversary so I created this Beautiful Card using the Daisy Delight Bundle

For my card base I used our lovely Sweet Sugar Plum Card Stock. I punched out a daisy in the front whisper white layer which I stamped with the fresh fig Ink Pad The 2 toned daisy's were stamped using the fresh fig ink and sweet sugar plum ink I also used crumb cake ink pad for the centers of the daisy's. I have offset the daisy to show the sweet sugar plum card base through to make a 2 coloured Daisy and embellished the center with a gold faceted gem. The Fresh Fig Ribbon just really finished the front of perfectly. The happ…

Kylie's International Blog Hop August Theme Teachers Gift with Donna Gray Stampin Up!

Hello Welcome to the Kylie's August International blog highlight. My name is Donna Gray I come from a small suburb called Goonellabah which is situated in The Northern Rivers area of New South Wales in Australia. This is my first time blog hopping with the international blog hopper's so I am so excited as well as nervous to be joining this blog highlight. I hope you all like what I have made.

The theme for this blog highlight was Teacher's gifts & my teacher's gift is not one of my own designs I have cased the design from Lea Denton from The Crafty Spark in the UK I did not design this myself so all the credits must go to Lea I have viewed a lot of projects similar to these on you tube that have been created by many demonstrators 

This is a picture of my teacher's gift project. I tend to struggle with male designs but the Guy Greetings Stamp Set made my job a little easier This Stamp set is a current set from our annual 2017/2018 catalogue

I found this idea on you…
