Welcome to October!!

Hello Stampers

I hope you all managed to do some crafting on World Card Making Day last Saturday.  I had a wonderful day with 16 fun-loving, crafty ladies at a local venue - The Malt, Shovel Taphouse -  near me and they really do look after us so well.

I had a Card Buffet of 15 Cards to choose from as well as random prize draws during the course of the day.  A big "Lucky Door" Prize which was won by Julie 👏👏  Congratulations Julie

A few of the cards we made:-

And, of course, a Christmas Gift Box

More fun on the day........

Already thinking about new and different fun things for next year.  Hope you can join me on the first Saturday of October in 2022.  Pop it in your calendar now.

Happy Stamping

Time for some Christmas Crafting!

 Hello Stampers

I am super busy getting ready for my World Card Making Day 2021 Fundraising Event on Saturday 2nd October.  So many things to think about and am loving all the creativity.  Hope you are able to come along and join in the fun if you are here in Australia and near me on the Sunshine Coast.  There are still a couple of spots still available so send me a message for more info 😀😀

I am just loving the Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes on Page 137 of the Annual Catalogue.  We are putting one of these together and decorating it on WCMD.  They are just so versatile and I will be handing a few of these out this year to my closest Pals with some little Christmas Goodies inside 😉

Did you know that is is really easy to cover these boxes with your favourite Designer Series Paper.  In my example I have used some of the "Peaceful Prints" Free Designer Series Paper on page 8 of the Sale-a-Bration Brochure to cover my box.  You only have till September 30 to pick up some of this pretty Christmas Paper as well as the "Be Dazzling" Specialty Paper on Page 3 of the SAB Brochure.  I used this glittery gorgeous paper on the star on the front of the box.

The Matching Christmas Card is using the "Gingerbread & Peppermint" Memories & More Cards and Envelopes on Page 9 of the Mini Catalogue.  These are so great when you are in a hurry and need to make a pile of cards to send out.  They come in a pack of 20 x Cards and matching envelopes for $17.50!!!  Bargain!!!  We will be playing with these on WCMD as well 😁😁  Just check out the products below and click on them to pick up a pack or 2 for your Christmas Card Stash.  Don't forget to use my Hostess Code for September to also receive some free little goodies as a Thank You from me...Only for Australian Residents though.

Happy Stamping

New Catalogue Time!!!!!

 Hello Stampers

My WA Adventure is nearly over and I will be back home real soon and back in my fun crafting room which I have missed so so much 😁😁😁

The new Mini Catalogue and Sale-a-Bration Brochure has started today so don’t wait till I get home to check it out.  I have added a link to them both to the right of this Blog 🥳🥳

I can’t wait to play with some of the new products in these editions.  
I have been away nearly 6 weeks so no card making at all for me in that time 😩😩
I have been making lots of happy holiday memories though and taken over 495 photos so it will be super fun putting together my WA Adventure Albums.

I have travelled in a caravan with my beautiful cousin Sue and her husband Ian for over 4 weeks. It was a little bit of a squeeze but we all managed and we’re all still friends at the end 😂😂😂 I saw so many wonderful places which I couldn’t have done without them as they are WA residents so they know their State. 
They have put up with me for over 4 weeks and I thank them for that 🤗🤗 I have made many cups of tea and done my caravan chores and cooked a few brekkies and it all added to my wonderful experience.

There have been many stunning sunsets over the last 5 weeks and one of my favourites has to be at Kalbari 

I will add a few more sunset pics after I get home as most of my photos are on my phone.

So until I get home and get to play more……

Happy Stamping

Travelling up the West Coast of Australia

 Hello Stampers

I have not been blogging for a while as I am ticking off a few things on my Bucket List at the moment.

1/ Travelling in a caravan

2/ Seeing the West Coast of Australia from Perth to Broome

3/ Swimming with the Whale Sharks at Exmouth

4/ Having a Sunset Camel Ride along Cable Beach in Broome.

So no card making happening at the moment 😩😩 and knitting my Grandies beanies instead.

Welcome to July and this means a new Hostess Code for JULY - XGDEPX2Q.   Place an order during July and adding this Hostess Code you will go in the draw for a great Gift from the new upcoming Mini Catalogue starting 3rd August 2021.

Happy Shopping and Stamping

Loving the New Catalogue!!

 Hello Stampers

I am so loving this new 2021/2022 Annual Catalogue and every time I look through the book again I see something else that is so lovely 💝😀

I used a few new goodies in my May Card Class yesterday and my real favourite at the moment is the Shimmer Vellum.  Oh so pretty.  We used it with the "Painted Texture" Embossing Folder and it is just stunning.  The greeting is from a new stamp set also called "Color & Contour" on Page 98 of the Catalogue and I also teamed it up with the little sunflower from "Celebrate Sunflowers" and a background colouring "splodge" from the "Painted Poppies" Stamp Set.  So you can always mix and match your stamp sets.  This is the new In Color - Polished Pink and as I am a "Pink" kinda girl this has to be my new favourite colour 😁😉

Have you spotted the cute little flowers too????  Yep these are in the new Catty - Page 141 "Loose Flower Flourishes" and come in all the new In Colors too 💗💗

Are you loving all the new things as much as I am??  Well there are a couple of ways to grab some free goodies right now and also if your Wish List is way too long then you can get that at a discount too by joining my Team........read on 😊

Grab a few friends over for a morning Tea or a Glass of wine and bickies, show them the new Catalogue, make a card or 2 and when they see how easy it is and what beautiful cards they can make they can place an order to make their own at home and you, as the Hostess, receive free products as well....Bonus!!!  I can do a Zoom demonstration from anywhere in Australia or I can pop on over to your place in person to show you if you are on the Northside of Brisbane or the Sunshine Coast.

Check out all the details here and my contact details are on the top of my main Website Page if you have any other questions or would like to set up a date 😀

Have that long Wish List?  Then you can Join my Team of Sunburst Stampers during the month of May and get $283.00 of product for just $169.00 PLUS free shipping which saves you heaps of $$$$$ as well.

I always love the opportunity to share the Stampin’ Up! experience with others. While a couple of my team members are running businesses with their Stampin’ Up! demonstratorship, most are simply enjoying the discount on the products they love, creating beautiful paper projects for friends and enjoying the community in our Sunburst Stampers Community.

You have no obligation to hold Classes or Workshops at all.  You do not have to return any of the products at any stage if you no longer are a Demonstrator.  Yes there is a minimum amount of Sales required each 3 months but if your Wish List is very long you can stretch your purchases out over time and still get them all at a minimum 20% discount.  Win! Win! I think 😁😁  

If you are in Australia and want to chat more about this great opportunity give me a call and I would love to share all the info.

Love the convenience and time saving of Kits?  Sympathy Cards are something we don't enjoy sending but are always needed to have on hand just in case....

Available now while supplies last we have the "Bouquet of Hope" Paper Pumpkin Kit

The Bouquet of Hope Paper Pumpkin Kit contains enough supplies to create nine comforting cards and coordinating envelopes that you can use to soothe others’ sorrow, supply them with strength, and share your sympathy.  Great value for just $37.00 and you have a stamp set to use for other cards + some extra supplies left over to create more in your own design.

Check this out to see how easy they are all to put together.

Happy Stamping everyone
