Hi there, and thanks for dropping in. My name is Penny Gordon. Originally from regional NSW, I have lived in Canberra for 17 years. A country girl at heart, our farm was at Chatsbury, an area between Goulburn and Taralga, thus the “ChatsburyGirl” name. You can take the girl out of the country…
Something I really enjoy is card making and stamping. I have only been doing it for 2 years, but have become quite addicted to it. I love being able to personalise cards for the people I know, and it is also a creative outlet for me, something that has been sadly lacking for me in recent years. Working behind a desk in I.T, there is limited scope (oops there’s I.T speak creeping in) for creativity. I also love sharing and finding new ideas and techniques.
Sadly, there is one person I never got to make a card for, my Dad. This site is dedicated to him, a special Chatsbury Lad.
This blog has been set up as part of my studies for WEB 101, a unit I am studying through Curtin University, and is part of my web presence. Here, I will be posting my thoughts and experiences on card making and stamping, as well as the occasional photo of cards I have made. But as I have found, life is not just about me…
Through the VodPod link, you can find a selection of stamping and card making videos that I have found through YouTube. These videos have been created by some very talented and generous card makers: Alisa Tilsner, Tami White and Brandy MacKenzie. The videos I have chosen are various techniques that can be used. Alisa and Tami’s videos can also be found on their blogs.
Updated 17 June 2012:
Vodpod was bought out by Lockerz. Consequently I have closed the account. In it’s place I have linked to the videos on Pinterest.
Through the Flickr link, you can see more cards that I have made over the last couple of years. I have also provided details on each card of the stamps, inks and accessories used, should you want to copy the card. This album will be regularly added to, so I hope you will come back from time to time, to see what’s new.
