Fabulous July

Hi there Stampers

I have just come home after 9 days in Western Australia with my son and his family. I love spending time with them all and my little grandies Tyler (5) and Ivy (2) just melt my heart.  We met half way as they flew in from Singapore and I came from the Sunshine Coast on the other side of Australia.  We had 2 days in Perth then a week in the Margaret River Region at a little place called Gnarabup.

It was cold, rainy and very windy, being the heart of winter, and there were still surfers you can see in the bottom picture!!!!  Brrrrrrr!! We still had a fabulous time in between the showers :)

Now home again and back into my fun card making.  I did get all my early July cards done and posted before I left.  Even for my niece in California USA whose birthday is tomorrow.

I just love the "Bundle of Love" Specialty Designer Series Paper and was perfect for my niece's card along with the cute flowers from the "Happy Birthday Gorgeous" Stamp Set.

This one is for a good friend whom I met whilst working in London back in 1978!! She loves her garden so the "Daisy Delight" Stamp Set was just right for her card.  Happy Birthday to You Rita :)

Testing out some new products!!

Hi there Stampers

I just love when a new Catalogue begins.  This new 2017/2018 Annual Catalogue is no exception and there are so many yummy things in this edition.  I just want them all!!!!

My very favourite thing of all though is the "Love Today Planner Kit" :)  Those of you who know me well know that I definitely am a Planner Girl!!  When I go away on holidays, especially overseas ones, I always complete a Journal so that afterwards when I go through my photos I can look back at all the details of where the photos were taken and what I was doing at the time.

So this Planner was a must for me.

Yay!!! it arrived in my order last week and have now just got around to opening it up and setting it up.  It comes in lots of sections, like Monthly Tab Glossy, beautiful pages, whole month pages, diary weekly pages, a book mark and stickers and oh so much more!!!

I started my Journal on July 1st and it will take me through to June 30 next year!!  So I added the years to the front with Gold Glimmer Paper.

I am off to Perth for a catch-up little holiday with my son and his family soon and my new Journal will be the first thing packed in my bag :) :) Loving it!!!


Bonus Coupons are here again :)   Click here to see all the details and start shopping now to get those coupons adding up.  Don't forget to use my Hostess Code for July listed above right, in all online orders, to also get more freebies from me.


I recently changed my regular card making class to add a bit of variety and I held a "Card Buffet".  It was a real hit and the ladies requested another one when next I can fit one in :)

I had 10 x cards to choose from in the Buffet and of various occasions from Female and Male Birthday to a Wedding Card.

My next class will be on Saturday 22nd July and will be a "Christmas in July" Theme.  So if you are on the Sunshine Coast in the Caloundra area why don't you pop in and join us?  More info on my Website here

I have had quite a few birthdays in June and got to play with a few of the new stamp sets and thinlits in the new Annual Catalogue.  Here are a few:-

This one for a friend's Grandson's 4th Birthday.  What boy doesn't love Dinosaurs?  I know my Grandson does :)  This darling paper is from the "Pick-a-Pattern" Designer Series Paper (Great Colours) and using the ever favourite Large Number Framelits and the Stitched Framelits which are getting a big workout at my place.

As you can see my absolute favourite Thinlit of the moment is the "Happy Birthday" Thinlits.  You can do just so much with it and teamed with the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets it is a dream to add to your creations.  The first one has two layers - Lemon Lime Twist and Basic Black.  A little bit of colour wash on Shimmery White Cardstock as a background and there you have it.  For a very special friend who celebrates her birthday the day before me

 Another "Happy Birthday" Thinlit card for another friend's son turning 30.  Just added a background using the "Playful Backgrounds" Stamp Set and the 30 from the "Number of Years" Stamp Set.  Simple but effective.

Then this one using retired paper from the "Serene Scenery" Designer Series Paper Stack.  I colour washed some Shimmery White cardstock again using the same colour scheme as the designer Series Paper and then ran the Happy Birthday Thinlit through the Bigshot.  This card was for my Bestie's son turning 34 and is a super keen surfer so something with a beach and water was required :) :)

Hoping that you are all having as much fun playing with your new goodies from this new Annual Catalogue as I am :)

Happy Stamping
