How many days of the school holidays are left? 
  • 5 if you don't count the public holiday on Monday (technically not part of the school holidays!)
  • 3 if you leave out the weekend (Coz we get those anyway)
  • 2 if you leave out tomorrow
Why leave out tomorrow?  It's the last day of my son's school trip to Japan, so still a travel day, where the teachers are still working and they haven't been able to sleep in and they'll be very tired!

Are you still following me?  Numbers aside, what I am trying to say is that four fantastic teachers have spent most of their holidays taking my son and other students around Japan and that deserves a thankyou.

I have wrapped up some presents for them and made them each a card...

I used
  • Notecards and Envelopes #133766 (Crumb Cake)  #131527 (Whisper White)
  • 1 1/2" Circle Punch #138299
  • Happy Happenings #139381
  • DSP Stack #138434 - (Brights) #138435 - (Neutrals)
  • Inks!
Very quick but a nice way to show our appreciation.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stampin' Up!s Star of Light

For our team day last weekend, one of my team members made a series of cards to display featuring the Star of Light Bundle.

I wasn't going to get this set.....until...

Yvette VW created such a beautiful set of cards which she said I could share with you!

She has explored a whole bunch of colour combinations and techniques.

I have fallen in love with the detailed die cut pieces and that starry swirly stamp!  Imagine the possibilities with that beyond Christmas - a rocket trail, fairy dust, new years, anything celebratory.
Anytime you buy a bundle (stamp set and thinlits/stamp set and punch) that is new to the catalogue, you get 10% off!  This gorgeous bundle is $84.50 and can be found in my online store by clicking HERE.
The best bundle of all is to join up!  For $169 you receive $235 worth of goodies and a 20% discount on all products for at least 3 months!  I have many ladies in my team who have joined for the discount and love saving on their orders!

Paper Angel Prize Patrol

On Saturday we had a Paper Angels Team Day.  One of the wonderful aspects of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is the friendships that are formed and the fun we have together.  Our team day was all about that.

Anyone who has ever been to a Stampin' Up! event knows that part of the excitement comes in the form of Prize Patrol.  So Bec and I did it on a smaller scale.

I love, LOVE, LOVE!! dressing up items in fancy packaging (it's a great way to showcase the products too) so this was my job.

 We gave away the Seasonal Decorative Masks which I decorated with the Paisleys and Posies suite.

The Pretty Paisleys Embossing Folders, decorated with the Christmas Pines Thinlits and Presents and Pinecones DSP.

And the Fancy Frost Sequins, decorated with the Fancy Frost Specialty DSP.


If you are interested in finding out how to become a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and joining my team, let me know!  We are a very active bunch with team meetings and activities for the community.
It costs $169 to join which gives you $235 product to play with and a business package.

This is why I haven't blogged in awhile!

Hi Everyone

I have been absent from blogland for a bit because I have been head down, tail up preparing for our Paper Angels Team Day yesterday.  Bec and I gathered together 32 demonstrators from the Gold Coast to Cooroy for a fun day of mixing and mingling. 

I'll show parts of the day over a few posts...
Stampers Gonna Stamp - our welcome table.  Everyone received a goody bag.

Stampin' Up!s message!  We hope we helped everyone to be inspired...I know we created and I know we shared.

Bec prepared this fabulous Advent Calendar using the Project Life Cards.
We had display tables showing lots of the new products from the Holiday Catalogue.  Two of my team members prepared samples which I'll show you close up in a later post.

A display showing the fabulous kits SU! sells.

More kits..

We took our cue from Stampin' Up! events and had a Product Playground.

The venue had plenty of space.

And the day begins with Bec's welcome and a talk on Flex Points.

Stay tuned...I will show you more in future posts! 

Have you had a good look at the Holiday catalogue?  We gave everyone who attended a copy.  They all already had one, but we challenged them to spread the word by passing their extra catalogue out to someone new.

Do you want one?  If you haven't got hold of a paper copy, let me know and I will get one to you!  You can't fold the corners of the pages over on an online copy!

Thanks for stopping by!

Tag Love

I've been packaging up my sister's birthday present this weekend and using some new products from the Holiday catalogue.

The Cheerful Tags Framelits Dies are so very cute, cutting and scoring the tag shapes.  One is designed especially to hang over a bottle neck.

Here's the other one which I have paired (no pun intended) with the Fruit Stand DSP.  The strawberries are cut out of the DSP!

There are also plenty of packaging options in the catalogue.   These White Gift Boxes have an acetate sleeve which slides over them.

And to complete the look I added some strawberry flowers to the sides of the box.  These are set off nicely with our Enamel Dots.  Scrummy!

Love our enamel dots?  They are on special this week!  Check them out here.
