Three Thank Yous - Stampin' Up! Tag a Bag Gift Boxes

I had three friends go all out to help me get my launch ready...


Using the Tag a Bag Gift Boxes and the now retired Printed Petals I created these long skinny cards and matching boxes.

The card was sized to slide over the paper sleeve that went round the box.

Super easy to put together.

Weekly Deals and more added to the Clearance Rack very soon.

Stay tuned.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hostess Sets

Have you looked at the beautiful Hostess sets at the back of the catalogue?

They start on page 179.  These sets are specially priced at a cheaper rate for hostesses to purchase when they have a party.

I love the Floral Wings set and CASEd this idea from Vicky Hayes at Crafting Clare.

Floral Wings is a 2 step stamp so you get to stamp this beautiful rose vine in one colour, then add the tiny roses in another.

This combination uses Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder.

And this combination is Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz.

I made a bunch of these for my mum.

If you would like to get a group of friends together I would love to run a party for you.  As hostess you can earn free products including this stamp set and you may even be eligible for a half price item...Big Shot anyone?

Thanks for stopping by!

Launch Make and Takes

We made five projects at my launch.  It was fun to explore new products.

Stampin' Up! has some fabulous kits in this year's catalogue.  Check out pages 152 to 155.

My guests got to make these cute little boxes using the All Boxed Up kit.  These are super easy to put together and work out at about $2.50 each.  There's a co-ordinating stamp set (also called All Boxed Up).

And we explored the gorgeous In Colors - card stock, ink and Dotted Lace trim.

More to come next post!

I am back

I am sorry for my nearly three week absence.  As many of you know my father passed away early in June.  I have experienced first hand the power of a hand made card in the mail from many people including many of my customers.  Thank you!

I postponed my catalogue launch and had a mad rush to prepare it but I was very blessed with helpers on the actual day and on the day before.  Thank you to everyone who helped me with actions big and small and plenty of hugs.  I really couldn't have done it without you.

I did remember to take some photos....

The launch bags - spotted with the new In Colors and the fun spot from the Layered Letters Alphabet set.

Lucky door prizes - I wish I had taken a better photo but they are now happy in their winners' homes.

Our ever popular raffle - prizes are donated by Stampin' Up!

Some of the Make and Take tables.

And displays of new products and ideas

I love this watermelon gift bag - CASEd from Cindy Schuster

Proceeds from our raffle for the whole day totaled $210 plus another $20 from sales of donated stamp sets.  So total for the day of $230.  One of my team members, Angela, also had a launch and her raffle raised $115. 

So we have a grand total of $345 to send to the Gold Coast Children's Hospital.  Yay!

It's nice to raise some money while doing something that is so much fun.

Thanks for stopping by.

In the next post I will show you our Make and Takes.
