Rotary Blade 12″ trimmer by Kaszazz

Hello again,

This time I am posting about the new Rotary Blade 12″ trimmer from Kaszazz, much better than their “ordinary” fixed blade trimmer.  I ordered the new rotary blade trimmer because the fixed blade trimmer was just not cutting properly, leaving very rough edges.  Even with a new blade the fixed blade trimmer only worked cleanly for a few cuts before, you guessed it, rough edges again.  Now, with the new rotary blade trimmer I can be confident that when I cut my paper it will be neat, accurate and usable for my projects.

I love the stamps and papers from Kaszazz which together with CM products gives me a world of choice for my projects.  The styles are very different and yet they are both beautiful.  The main difference is, that people who don’t want to spend on buying stamps and inks for their scrapbooking but still want to “dress up” their scrapbooking, the CM pre-made flowers, stickers and die cuts, make beautiful, quick and easy pages.

Back to topic – the Rotary Blade Trimmer cuts clean and accurate and you can order by private messaging me on Facebook.  The Trimmer has a choice of three cuts – curved, straight and perforated.  Also available are replacement blades and cutting rubber mat. Now see the trimmer in action in this video  which will explain how to use the different styles of cutting and the replacements available and how to attach them when needed.

Well, that’s really it from me today.  Enjoy looking at the product and thanks for reading.  Cheers, Lola.


Card for this week!

Hello again, earlier today I posted information about all the new items this month with Creative Memories.

This time I’m posting a card made last week, which was part of a weekly challenge with Splitcoaststampers.  It didn’t take long to make this card but it took some thinking on how to get things to fit together and what papers/colours I would use.

Single sided patterned paper on the back of which I randomly stamped Michael Strong Flower stamp, cut to size. Left over strips of patterned paper from a 12″Pad from Aldi, some leftover greenish card stock which is double sided darker on one side light on other. The Flower sentiment is Kaszazz stamp no longer available but found it stamped on the white card in Ranger “Aged Mahogany”. I had small punched flowers from a previous projects with the same patterned paper as the larger strip. I thought it appropriate to put these together.  Hope you like it.  The brand etc. information is as follows:

Stamps:  Kaszazz – sentiment and Michael Strong Rubber Stamp – flower
Paper:  Kaszazz Cardstock – Bermuda, Oatmeal (216 gsm base) and no-brand cardstock (for circle), patterned
Paper Size:  Base card A5 (half A4 – 216gsm) Australian sizes
Ink:  Archival Inks – Cobalt, Forget-me-not and Ranger – Aged Mahogany
Accessories:  Double sided tape, punch for flowers, stamp, personal trimmer and 12″ trimmer, glossy accents or craft glue for flowers
Techniques:  Stamped background paper, and cutting

This wasn’t the only card I made but the only one I can show at present, because the others were for swaps and I don’t want to show them before the recipients receive them.  I will show them later in the month.

So, I think that’s it for the moment.  Oh, one last thing I will be Card Captain again later this month so keep a look out for what I come up with.  Cheers until next time.


Card and medallion for this week.

Hello there, today I have a card and a fold for you, both of which I worked on last week and weekend just gone.  I hope you like them, the card and the medallions are made using a variety of papers purchased at various places and times.  However, I will mention the ones I do know.

The card today is one made for a challenge at the for last week.  It does not have a stamp on it but merely uses punches and brad from Kaszazz, the main patterned paper is from a 12×12 pad from Aldi, I think I received it as a Christmas gift a couple of years ago.  The two smaller triangles are made with one double-sided paper – one side the green stripes and the other with the “postage stamp” image, unfortunately I cannot remember the brand, but I do remember purchasing it at a craft store in Ballarat, Victoria a few years ago.

The medallion is made with a one-sided paper with the Michael Strong Rubber Stamp “Flower” stamped on the back to give it the feel of double sided paper.  The circles were cut with the Creative Memories custom cutting set.

Well, now you know all about the card and medallions so here are the pictures.  The last photo shows the smaller medallion on top of the larger one, quite affective don’t you think?  The size of the larger one would be too big for a card but great for a scrapbook page.  Well that’s all I have for you this time.  I have made more cards, three today, but you will just have to come back another day to catch those.  Cheers for now.

Time for another card

Hello again,

Today I have a card which I finished a week or so ago and thought you might enjoy!  It has a bit of nostalgia and fantasy combined with simplicity.  I made it from some left over paper and Michael Strong stamps – fan – and a bought flower, though not sure where I bought it.  Anyway, enjoy!  As always let me know what you think.

Mother”s Day – Happy Mothers Day

Hi folks,  I’m back with trying to catch up with “one card a week” I have two more for you.

In light of it being Mother’s Day yesterday I thought I would share some appropriate cards with you.  These were made when we were up in Port Stephens as part of a Kaszazz card kit.  No instructions given only some photos of cards as suggestions, so these are my interpretations.  For those of you reading this who are mothers, I hope you had/have a beautiful day with your family.

I won’t prattle on because I think the cards will say more.  So enjoy!  Until next time.

Hello again!

HI there, I did say I would try and catch up on one card a week.  Here goes, I have 9 to catch up and one for this week.

I made 20+ cards while on holiday in Port Stephens, I have shown you two of those already yesterday.  Today I will show a couple that use a variety of products from Kaszazz, Creative Memories and other assorted “ingredients”.   The one on the left is made with an embossing folder (cannot remember the brand – will advise later), which I cut into the two pieces and attached to the card blank and just to add a little more dimension I added the little Fairy.  The one on the right is a white card base stamped with the same “Moroccan” pattern stamp (Kaszazz) as the overlay, I added some paper flowers stamped and cut out – again no brand but the stamp came free with a magazine.  Enjoy!

Card 5 – Friday 20 January 2017

Final day of the working week and the final day of making cards, I had intended to make a couple more tomorrow and Sunday but I have a workshop tomorrow and not sure if I can fit one in.  We’ll see….
Anyway for my last card of the week, I just had to make a coffee related card because just like some of you, I love my coffee and I could not let this week go without a “coffee fix” so enjoy!
Thank you for visiting and I hope you got some inspiration from the cards this week.  It was a pleasure to make these cards this week.
Until next time…..
