Just 98 days till Christmas..............

I am now starting on my Christmas cards for this year.  I usually start in September as I don't like to make all the same cards and like to vary my designs and sizes depending on if I have to post them or hand deliver them.

Hot off the press today are these great single stamps available to purchase until 31 January 2014.  Just pop on over to my website here to order them. They are only available in clear and the block required for each stamp can be found by clicking on the particular stamp pictured in the shop.

New Holiday Catalogue starts today...........

I haven't posted for over a month, oh dear!!!!  Life has been pretty hectic in my household in the last couple of months so I have been falling down on my Blog posting.  My daughter's wedding is this Sunday so soon all will be back to normal and I will have plenty of time for more card making.

I have made a little something to put on the Gift Table.....

 I have used the new Chalk Talk Stamp Set from the 2013/2014 Annual Catalogue on Page 12 and the gorgeous Silver Ribbon on Page 28 of the new Holiday Catalogue.....just perfect for this wedding gift.

Today is a very special day though as the new Holiday Catalogue is here and you can now start getting ready for all your Christmas Card creations.  Just click here to flip through the catalogue.

Happy Stamping

A Taste of the Holiday Catalogue coming soon........

A little tradition we have in the lovely neighbourhood where I live is to pass around the "Birthday Lolly Jar" for each birthday celebrated.  After you get to eat the yummy collection of goodies in the jar for your birthday you have to refill it and pass it on to the next birthday person.  

I just had a birthday in June and received Fantales and chocolate coated almonds..yummoooo!!! 

The next birthday was on July 8 and I refilled the jar with Maree's favourite licorice allsorts and chocolate coated licorice bullets ( there has to be some chocolate in there somewhere hey?? ) and prettied it up with a little Stampin' Up!

This sentiment is part of a new set called Oh, Goodie! coming up in the Holiday Catalogue starting here in Australia 29 August 2013.  So here is a sneek peak :)

Happy Stamping

Countdown to the new 2013/2014 Catalogue........

Hi there Stampers

Just 9 more big sleeps till the new 2013/2014 Annual Catalogue starts Woohoo!!!!!!!

This also means only 8 more sleeps for you to order your favourite things that will be not coming back from the 2012/2013 Annual Catalogue.  So check those "Wish Lists" and head over to my website here to see the most updated Retirement List.  You can even order direct from my Website to save time and ensure no disappointment :)

I have been making a couple of cards using some products that I love and will not be returning next Catalogue - Pop-up Posies Designer Kit on Page 18 of the Seasonal Catalogue containing heaps of really cute things and also the beautiful 5/8" (1.6cm) Flower Trim on Page 5 of the Seasonal Catalogue

5/8" Flower Trim         

Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit

 Frost White Shimmer Paint - by Stampin' Up!

The first card is using another very favourite of mine - The Dress Up Framelits Dies (these will still be available in the next Catty Yay!!!) - and I have made the little dancing party skirt using the Pool Party paper flowers in the kit. Doesn't it look just sooooo cute :)  I have popped the bodice of the dress through the Big Shot with the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder, then adhered it to the Early Espresso Dress Frame - I always cut off the feet at the bottom of the dress frame. I randomly added about 6 paper flowers, some with 3 petals cut off which I placed at the top of the skirt.

The largest of the Apothecary Accents Framelits (this also is returning) has been spritzed with the Frost White Shimmer Paint (sadly this is not coming back in the new Catty) and edged using the "Essentials" Paper Piercing Pack.

The greeting is from the "Embellished Events" Stamp Set - returning for another year :) and this has been popped on to a the larger of the Ticket Duo Builder which has been run through the Big Shot with the upcoming, new "Modern Mosaic" Embossing Folder.  Watch out for this Modern Mosaic Bundle it is really super cool.

A few Stampin' Dimensionals and we have the finished card............

This second card is also using the Dress Up Framelits Dies but also using another item which I am very happy to collect and use on my cards :)  This was demonstrated for us at Convention this year by Ngaire Anderson in her Workshop Wow.  It is using the wrappers from those delicious Fererro Roche Chocolates....

How cute is that?  I love it.  It looks just like a Flamenco Dancer's skirt.  Here in my version I have just the dress form in Crumb Cake.  It has been stamped with the french wording from the "French Foliage" Stamp Set but you can't quite see it here in this photo.  The necklace is made using 3 brads from the Neutrals pack.

The Fererro Roche wrappers are folded in half and randomly again placed on the bottom of the dress form with Glue Dots.  Here I have used 4 wrappers.  I will just have to make a few more of these dresses as there are more than 4 Fererro Roches in my chocolate box haha.

I wrapped a piece of Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon around the waist a couple of times and added an Antique Brad to hold it all together.

The dress has then been popped up on "Champagne Glimmer Paper" Apothecary Accent Framelit.

The greeting is from another retired stamp set called "Upsy Daisy"

I have also "dressed up" the envelope, as Shelli always says "You can't leave an envelope naked"  The Designer Paper I used here has also retired.

I have made these little gift boxes for my daughter and her best friend's Hen's Party this weekend. I have used the Kraft Gift Boxes on Page 161 of the Annual Catalogue and these will be returning in the next Catalogue as well.

I used the Pop-up Posies Designer Kit for these boxes and trimmed the sides with the Delicate Details Lace Tape (also coming back in the new Catty) and the Flower Trim (Sadly retiring :( )

The hearts are using the Fashionable Hearts Embosslits.

I hope you are all as excited as me for the new 2013/2014 Annual Catalogue to start.  If you haven't already got one email me here with the subject "New Catalogue" and I will pop one in the mail for you for only $10.00 P&H included (Australia only).  If you then place an order with me in the first 2 weeks I will take that cost off your order total.  

You can also order one direct online here. 
I will then contact you further before your next order.

Happy Stamping and TFL

Stamp Club

Hello Stampers

My May Stamp Club orders have arrived this morning and are now ready to be delivered!!! Now to start thinking about my June Make-and-Takes.  Hmmmm what shall I do???


Another WGS and Friends Gathering was held over last weekend and the ladies all had a wonderful time.  A couple of newbies popped in this time, some to create and others just to see our fun and creativity in action :)

I shared a new technique using Embossing Folders in a slightly different way....

I used the new Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (EF) from the Stampin' Up! Seasonal Catalogue and inked up the raised side with Versamark ink, placed the Whisper White cardstock on the other side, closed the EF carefully and pressed over the top with my brayer - firmly and evenly.  When removed you will just see the  Versamark design.  Cover with Embossing Powder colour of your choice (I used gold ), dust off and heat.  I teamed it as a background with a Paper Doily, a couple of ovals using the Ovals Collection Framelits Dies, The beautiful cake from the "Embellished Events" Stamp Set and all the 2013/2014 In Colors - Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals, Midnight Muse, Gumball Green and Raspberry Ripple.  The greeting is from the "Create a Cupcake" Stamp Set.

I think I might try a few more designs using other EFs now.

Happy Stamping

Convention Time!!!!!

Hey Stampers  I am off to the Annual South Pacific Stampin' Up! Convention here in Brisbane today.  The weather is a little gloomy to welcome all our fellow stampers from New Zealand and Australia but my inward excitement makes up for it :)

I will have some highlights to share with you all on my return but in the meantime I thought I would share my make-and-takes for the month of May in my Stamp Club.........

The first one is still quite simple but had lots of elements to put together.  In this card I have used Marina Mist and Pink Pirouette cardstock which are colours that are remaining in the Subtles range in the next 2013/2014 Catalogue

The second card is simple but still very effective.  I love the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set it is so versatile.

The third make-and-take is a Treat Pouch made using the Natural Composition Specialty Designer Series Paper which is also carrying over into the new catalogue.

I hope my Stamp Club ladies had lots of fun putting these together :)

Happy Stamping and more excitement after Convention

Sneak Peek

Stamp Club Make-and-Takes for May nearly all done.  Just a few little details to finish off and they will be in the mail to the lucky participants.

Above is a sneak peek of one of the projects featuring the Natural Composition Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I am really loving this pack right now.  It is a little thicker than other DSPs so great for making boxes and Treat Pouches.  I will post pictures of the full Projects after they have all been posted.  Here Gumball Green and Midnight Muse have been featured.

Mother's day tomorrow here in Australia and I will be doing the 8km Mother's Day Classic Walk raising funds for Breast Cancer Research with my beautiful daughter.  We have been doing this together for the last 4 years so it will be a very special day for us both :)

I will also get to see my gorgeous little Grandson, Tyler, and give a big hug to his Mum for Mother's Day too. I have made her a special Mother's Day card too shown below.  I hope all the Mum's out there are deservedly spoilt on their special day.

Happy Stamping and TFL

March Birthdays

Hello Stampers,

The South Pacific ( Australia and New Zealand )  Stampin' Up! Convention is coming up soon in May so I have been busy starting my swaps and also doing a couple of my "Roomie" Gifts.  The Convention this year is in my home town of Brisbane but I am still staying in close to where all the action is so I don't miss out on anything :)  I love  Convention so simply can't wait till this years'.  I can't show you any of these yet as they are a secret!!  I will have lots of pics to share after Convention.

I still have to keep up to date with my family and friends' birthday cards so I thought I would share a couple of my March ones with you now.

I found inspiration for this one from Pinterest - great source of Stampin' Up! creations on this site.  I am loving it. It is a card by Virginia Kilmore and Desiree Spenst.  I have just adapted the embellishments for me.  This is a card for my sister's birthday and I used the Naturals White cardstock on Page 160 of the Annual Catalogue.  This has a slight fleck through it which gives it a bit more character.  I also used up some of my old retired DSPs both on the card and on the envelope flap.

This card is using the new Designer Builder Brads in the Seasonal Catalogue on Page 12 and I cut a small Itty Bitty Punch Pack circle from the Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper for the centre of the Brad.  The flower is using Daydream Medallions Stamp Set and the Floral Frames Framelits.  The colours are Midnight Muse and Whisper White.    The greeting is from the  retired stamp set "A Word for You".  This card is for a good friend and neighbour's birthday next week. I hope she likes it.

Happy creating and TFL
