Team Fun

One of the best parts of my job is my team, the Lorikeet Stampers.  I love sharing with them, card making with them, helping them and meeting with them.  They are a lovely bunch of people!
Most of them are hobby demonstrators, which means they have joined to get the fabulous 20% discount.  Some of my team also do Stampin' Up! as a business.  All levels of interest are welcome!
We meet once a month on the Gold Coast and the team meeting is optional, but lots of fun!

Every month we have an optional creative challenge.  This month it was to create a card based on this sketch.

Here's one of the fantastic entries - this one is made by Caroline.

And these were the prizes I prettied up for the challenge, using the Oh So Eclectic stamp set and framelits.

Jennifer ran the make and take, so this was her thank you.

And Christine promoted to Bronze Elite (which means she now gets a 25% discount) so we celebrated her achievement by presenting Christine with this.

This month's team meeting was extra special as I celebrated my team being my team!

Everyone in the team, whether adopted or not, received a feather as a symbol of the team.

Then anyone who has reached Bronze Elite received a special bracelet.

It was tricky getting charms in the colours of the lorikeet and in the end my sister MADE these dangly charms!  Isn't she clever??

And anyone in my team who reached Silver and Silver Elite received these.

I presented these ones in these cute little bottles!  I couldn't resist.

One of my team members, Angela, showcased her gifts in a far more artistic way in this photo!

If you would like to know more about the fun of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, please let me know.  You are welcome to come along to a team meeting and see what it is all about. 

I love how Stampin' Up! has enriched my life!

Thanks for stopping by!

Eastern Palace AGAIN!?!

I can't stress enough how unique this stamp set and matching dies from Stampin' Up!® are.  If you love playing and experimenting with your card making, this is the suite for you.  Add the dsp and the stickers and you have hundreds of unique combinations to create.

We recently created five projects in a class.

This one uses the new Very Vanilla notecards and envelopes.  Combining stickers and stamping and dsp.

This one showcases one of the foil pages in the dsp pack.  The Dapper Denim background sets off the gold.

This beautiful treat bag was inspired by Erica Cerwin - love her work.

Another CASE - this time from Dena Rekow.

Isn't this gold dsp gorgeous?  Everyone loved this card!!

We didn't make this card but I showed it round as another example.

If you like this Eastern Palace Bundle, I promise you will have great fun with it.

Want to order?  You can purchase it in my online store or email me at or phone me on 55 765 469.

Thanks for stopping by!
