Isn't he just so cute!!! even with his frown he just makes you smile. Michelle cased this card for one of her $2 evenings a while ago and I've only just gotten around to posting it now. For more details on the card and for a link to the original designer check out her blog O 2 B Stampin'
And this denim paisley card would be fantastic for any teenage girl. Sharlene made this card after spotting one similar in a magazine. I think it's a fantastic way to use a background stamp. Check out Sharlene's blog Stamp With Sharlene for more of her projects.

Firstly I'd like to welcome Lou to the NZSU team, we're now a team of 2, Yay!! It'll be great to get some fresh ideas. Hopefully the blog will keep growing as SU grows in NZ. You never know, maybe one day we'll have our own NZ version of Splitcoast.
Anyway - what can I say about Lou's Scrap Page other than it's fabulous!!! Love her use of DSP and punches, it all works perfectly! For the recipe check out Lou's blog Louise? Yeah thats me... AKA PunknScrap
I wish when I scribbled it looked this good. I love the colours Kim's used in this card, and the layout and she's done a great job with her sponging. Kim's inspired me to use sponging more,it add heaps more depth to cards. To get the recipe for this card and Kim's other designs, check out her blog INKin Fun
I loved this card by Karen. I think it's just so sweet and simple, great for the newest of stampers. Check out the recipe on Karens Blog The Inkredible Journey

They finally arrived! My DEMOSINKNZ swaps and they are all just gorgeous! Joining swaps is a great way to build up your demo cards and to get new ideas. This swap was to design a card using the DSP from Palette 0' Prints Promotion.
I loved all of them, but chose this one for Inspiration, it's stunning and it would be a great card to demo at a workshop. It was designed by Vicki Were who also organised the swap. Thanks Vicki for your hard work and for the card.

Here is a stunning Mother's Day card by Anne-Marie,. It was designed by Jacque and Anne-Marie put it together. This card is very cool as somehow it turns into a bookmark. For the recipe check out her blog by clicking on her name above. She's also posted some great note cards and recently had a colour challenge. Unfortunately I wasn't organised enough and missed but will definitely try for the next one.
