Sale-a-Bration Time again!!!

 Hello Stampers

Here it is July!!! and I have been in my new house for 1 month!!!  My Gosh where is the time going??? I have now had another Birthday.....66!!  has a nice ring to it but it is very quickly getting closer to the big 70 and I am definitely not ready for that 😫😊😏  So better get stuck into the crafting as much as I can LOL.

I am slowly locating my crafty things in all the boxes and getting ready for my "Xmas in July" Event on July 16.

Here is a sneak Peek of one of the creations on the day

In the meantime we have a new Mini Catalogue to browse through which is full of fun Christmassy goodies.  Some of which I will be using at my Event.

  Also with the new Mini comes a new Sale-a-Bration Brochure for July - August.  More freebies.  I just love the freebies 😀

A new Month brings a new Hostess Code GJ64QYM2.  Add this code to your Online Order when prompted to earn a free Thank You Gift from me. This month it is some of the new masking Paper

Happy Stamping

More easy creations

 Hello Stampers

As I inch closer to my moving date into my "downsized" new home I still am managing some crafty days to keep my "fingers in the ink" so to speak 😁😁

I am the Assistant Secretary of my local VIEW (View, Interests and Education of Women) Club and one of my roles is to search out and book interesting Guest Speakers.  Some get recommended to me by other Club Members so this makes my job a little easier.  I also give them a Thank You card and small Gift to thank them for giving up their valuable time to talk to us all.

One of the Club Members gave me a collection of Blank cards which were surplus to her needs so I use these and add a little more "creativeness" to them as Cards for all occasions which are needed to send out from time-to-time.

I start with this "blank" card -

and using the limited supplies that I have out of boxes at the moment - the "Hues of Happiness" Suite I end up with this.................

As you can see the large flower die from this set is not limited to cutting out the stamped flower images or the flowers on the matching Designer Series Paper. Here I used it to frame the "Thank You" sentiment.

I then hand cut or fussy cut, as we say in the crafting business 😊, the 2 flowers from the matching Designer Series Paper and added them to the sentiment.  Walah!!!  Done 👍

So I am keeping sane until my move at the end of this month.

I will be sharing with you all soon, my new Craft Room I am having designed right now.  There is a wait time of 8 weeks with the Cabinet Makers at the moment so keep an eye out in early August for my little space of happiness 😄😄

Happy Stamping

May Creations

 Hello Stampers

Yes I am back again 2 days in a row!!!  but when one has an addiction, one just has to get the craft goodies out wherever possible to create 😂😂😂  As I mentioned before all my craft supplies are boxed up ready to move house but I am getting fidgetty!!!  and can't wait any longer 😁  so I had ordered the new 2022-2024 In Colors and lucky some supplies were easy to grab so I am now feeling somewhat calmer after putting together my May Birthday Cards and Treat Bags for my "Minglers" Group of friends.

All my acrylic stamping blocks were boxed away somewhere not easy to be found so had to come up with a solution.......walah! found the lid off some storage containers just the right size...

And did not have any white cardstock left either so what to use???????   Yes the backing of the new In Color "Glossy Dots" packet is pretty close to white 👍 (See how I cut it off the bottom?)  I used them for the "Best Wishes" on the Treat Bags.  I bet you couldn't tell they were not exactly white????

So folks you don't need  heaps of supplies when making special greeting cards for family and friends.  Here I used just supplies from the new "Hues of Happiness" Suite on Page 108 of the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue which started yesterday.

I purchased the little Treat Bags for $1.00 each from the local "Cheap" Shop and decorated them using the Designer Series Paper in this "Hues of Happiness" Suite. Yes the Dies fit the flowers on this DSP perfectly.  Everything is "Matchy Matchy" 😄😄
