See ya later 2019!!!

Hello Stampers

Well I don't know where that last month went!!!   I blinked and it is now the end of 2019 😉 What a busy December I had.  A few classes and many Christmas parties with lots and lots of Christmas cards made, sent and received.  Family and friends on Christmas Day and Boxing Day and lots of love and laughs were had 😃😃  So now I have lots of fun photos to print off and scrapbook.  I look forward to doing some scrapbooking pages for a bit of a change from card making.

Also we only have a few more days left to grab those "can't live without" items from the 2019 Holiday Catalogue.  Don't forget to use my Hostess Code for December - SGJ6ESES - when you place your online order with me and receive a free pack of Assorted Googly eyes great for those children cards.

So that also means only 3 more big sleeps till the new 2020 Mini Catalogue goes LIVE!!!!  If you haven't got your copy yet and you live in Australia just email me here and I will get a copy to you asap

The front cover shows one of my favourite sets in this new Mini Catalogue - "Painted Poppies"  Love the bright colours of these flowers and the matching Designer Series Paper.

After my beautiful family left and a few spare minutes were managed I made my way into my craft room and had a little play with this new set 😁😁

I mixed it with the "Perennial Essence" Designer Series paper and the "Perennial Birthday" Stamp Set for the greeting and began my Birthday Cards for 2020.

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my wonderful crafty followers and hope you all have a safe, healthy and wonderful papercrafting New Year 😎😀😀💖🎆🎆🎆

Happy Stamping

November News

Hello Stampers

Well November is a very exciting month!!
Firstly we have the launch of Stampin' Up!s new Paper Trimmer

It is here now for you to purchase  👏👏😀  I have been testing mine out now for a couple of weeks and totally love it.  So many better features than the last one.  Pick yours up right now from my online store here.

Remember to add my November Hostess Code CPPKT633 to receive this month's free gift from me - a selection of the gorgeous "Brightly Gleaming" Foil Elements

Also while stocks last we have the new "Christmas Time" Suite available.  This Suite can be used for Christmas and then for many more occasions afterwards like Birthdays and Mother's Day to name a couple.

Also check out what you can get in this suite more closely on my website.

Now to some cards I have made recently using the "Pigment Sprinkles" on Page 179 of the Annual Catalogue.  I had recently been inspired by some beautiful creations done by Ingrid Heijnen-Hermens.  So thought I would dabble a little myself.

I used Shimmery White Cardstock and taped them down to my grid paper with Painter's Tape

Then experimented with all the colours in the collection in different combinations

I found that the 2 examples on the right still had quite a bit of colour coming off on my hands so I wiped them both over well with a dry tissue to get off all the excess before adding to card fronts.  Here are the end results....

Here I have mounted the coloured piece on the Whisper White card front with dimensionals and stamped all around the outside with the leaf from "Daisy Lane" Stamp Set in Early Espresso and added a wee gold "Designer Element" to the small stitched circle. I used Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green and Daffodil Delight.

This next one I used Melon Mambo and Gorgeous Grape in lines alternately and the "Thank You" greeting from the "Daisy Delight" Stamp Set with 3 little retired Melon Mambo embellishments.

This one above is using Mango Melody, Bermuda Bay and Gorgeous Grape randomly sprinkled.  A couple of embellishment dies from the "Flourish" Die Set and the "Thank You" greeting from "Daisy Delight" Stamp Set.  Also I framed the piece in Gorgeous Grape using the "Stitched Rectangle" Dies

This last one above I was trying to get Christmas colours using Granny Apple Green and Melon Mambo in diagonal stripes but it did not end up how I pictured 😵 so I stamped the large Christmas Tree from the "Memories of Home" Stamp Set in the Holiday Catalogue, with Versamark and then Black Embossing Powder.  Finishing off with the sentiment from the same stamp set and a little Linen Thread bow.  Then mounted it on a Granny Apple Green Card Base.

I feel that I need to play with these a little bit more to see what different creations I can come up with.  So watch this space and I will share once I have more 😍

Happy World Card Making Day

Hello Stampers

Happy World Card Making Day to you all wherever in the world you may be 😀

Yesterday, October 5th 2019 I celebrated with a wonderful group of crafting Ladies and we laughed and stamped and laughed some more and fussy cut and created all day long..

We had fresh scones jam and cream and cookies all baked fresh that morning ( and were still warm when they arrived) giving us more energy to craft longer 😉 Then a really delicious lunch at the Caloundra Powerboat Club. A few of the ladies also won some meat and seafood tray raffles while eating lunch.

Then some great cards were made and all-in-all lots of fun was had

So next year if you wish to join in the fun with me mark it in your calendar now so you don't forget and book something else in by mistake lol


When ordering online through my shop during the month of October and adding this Hostess Code when asked you will receive a special Thank You Gift from me. This month is some cute Old Olive Linen Thread which is great for any Christmas embellishment, especially wreaths I think 😃

So pop on over to my shop here and follow the steps.

COMING SOON.........................

Watch my Blog this coming week for my October "Class By Mail" details. Just finishing my card designs and then we will be ready to go.

Happy Stamping Everyone
