Team Day Prize Patrols!

Anyone who has been to a Stampin' Up! event knows the fun of Prize patrol.  So when Bec and I joined forces to run ours, we had to have prizes.

One of my favourite things to do, if you didn't already know this, is to PACKAGE!  So it was my job to pretty up the prizes.  In the same way you can't mail a plain envelope, you can't give out a plain prize!

Come and see....

LOTS of goodies from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue that you will LOVE!

I love being part of a team and running team events.  These days are such fun and everyone enjoys coming together, creating and swapping ideas.  If you are interested in getting a great discount on your crafting supplies and being part of the fun, let me know!  I would love you to join us.

Thanks for stopping by!

Team Day Fun!

Anyone who is part of Stampin' Up! knows that the gathering together to craft is the best part of our jobs.

This weekend, Bec, a fellow demonstrator, and I banded together to run a team day with 42 ladies in attendance.  It was a biggie to get ready but day ran superbly and everyone had a great time.

Our welcome....

Fantastic displays of the hostess sets...

And what about these huge flowers made by Liz!?


Here's the crowd!  Bec and I are out the front.

Clare from Demo Support flew up fro the day from Sydney.  She won her first ever Prize Patrol!  (Usually she is giving them out!)

Make and takes in action...


Serious discussions...


A name tag competition...

Creative demonstrations...

All up we had a fantastic day.  It's a great opportunity to gather, create and relax.

Daisy Delight Inspiration by Stampin' Up!®

My Stamp. Relax. Repeat. class runs once a month.  The class is a self paced class where customers make simple cards that are easy to complete at their own pace.

This month we used the wonderful Daisy Delight Bundle by Stampin' Up!®  to make two each of four beautiful cards...

The stamp set and punch are a great combinations and then the DSP adds another element to the card.

My friend and team member Angela let me CASE this from her.

This is a card layout that I return to again and again:  a piece of dsp across the bottom of the card, with a thin strip of co-ordinating cardstock along the edge. 

This is another CASE from Dena Rekow - I love the way she used the paper...and I love the paper!

And a great tip to keep in mind is to use the negative of the punch.

This has been one of the most popular bundles in the catalogue and was unavailable to purchase for awhile because it sold so quickly. 

If you would like to purchase the bundle you can visit my online store or contact me.  I would love to earn your business.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Friend....Stampin' Up!® Project Kits

Over the past few years Stampin' Up® has started offering more kits with more variety of techniques contained.

I have just had fun assembling the Hello Friend kit which uses one of my favourite techniques:  heat embossing.

The kit has everything you need including two little bottles of embossing powder.

All up you make 15 cards - 3 designs, 5 of each.

I love the sentiments in the set (which is sold separately)

This card is fun - the 'hello' is a cut out.  I dragged my Versamark ink pad across part of it then embossed with the copper embossing powder.

This card has a beautiful, subtle watercolour 'swoosh' across the background.

Both the stamp set and kit are available in my ONLINE STORE.  Or you can phone me on 07  55765 469 or email me at

What's better than a pocketful of sunshine?

Pocketful of Sunshine by Stampin' Up!® caught my eye with my first flip through of the annual catalogue.  I love sending happy mail and I love the idea of sending someone some sunshine.
This bright card was CASEd from Dena Rekow and sent off to two ladies needing a bit of brightness.

The fabulous 'Sunshine' is cut using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.
The Pocket Framelits that co-ordinate with the stamps allowed me to cut out those sunnies and also make the 3D items below.
I stamped and cut the pocket shape, then cut a plain piece for the back.  They are joined together with a strip of cardstock that is 7 1/2" by 1" and scored at 2 1/4", 3 3/4" and 5 1/4".
I stamped the Dapper Denim pocket with the gorgeous flowers from the Wood Words stamp set and heat embossed using Copper Embossing Powder.

I used the same stamp on the Crumb Cake pocket, stamping with Dapper Denim ink and colouring with a white gel pen.
And a little Dapper Denim ribbon on the side to add an extra touch.

This is just one of the many wonderful stamp sets available in the Annual Catalogue.  You can view it by clicking on the cover image in the left tool bar.
