Lots of presents….

Each month Demonstrators are provided with some card samples which we can choose to use for our workshops. In January there was a card using the Birthday Whimsy Sale-A-Bration set which I really liked the layout but I wanted brighter cheerier colours, after all that’s what birthday time is all about.

So this is what I came up with.


Birthday Whimsy 2


Stamp sets: Birthday Whimsy

Cardstock: Taken with Teal, Summer Sun, Whisper White.

Inks: Taken with Teal, Summer Sun, Real Red.

Accessories: Silver Brads, Red Grosgrain ribbon, Stampin’ Dimensionals.



As mentioned this stamp set ‘Birthday Whimsy’ is from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue. All sets in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue are free and all you need to do to receive one is place a $100 order with me. For each $100 you can choose 1 set. The Sale-A-Bration sets will not be available for purchase and will not appear in any upcoming Idea Book & Catalogues. They are a limited time only set. If you don’t have a copy of the Sale-A-Bration catalogue you can email me and I’ll post one out to you or you can view it online.

Time Well Spent….

Today’s card is made using a set that demonstrators received for FREE from Stampin’ Up as a Thank You for last year and is called Time Well Spent. This set will be a Level 3 Hostess set in the upcoming Idea Book & Catalogue 2008 | 2009 due out in April.

I’m not sure if you can see but there is glitter on the top flower to give a bit of sparkle. The flower is made up of 3 layers which are 3 seperate flowers in the set.

This card was inspired by strappystamper on SCS. I loved her card but wanted to change the colours and add my own little twist to it. What do you think, did I succeed?

Back in the swing of things…..

School holidays are all over and I’m almost on top of everything.

My eldest daughter started High School this year so some new (and old too I guess) experiences happening in my house. Boy some things have changed since I was at school which granted was a few years ago now but not that long ago really.  Can you believe that they have a 3 day school camp to help the children settle in and socialize with each other?  Didn’t we just turn up and get on with things? I’m sure we all survived High School so why shouldn’t they without a camp 3rd week into the year?

Now my aim for the remainder of this year is to post more regularly to my blog so you can all come back more often and see what I’ve been creating. I’d love to say I’ll post daily but that may not always happen. With a family of 4 young girls, my hubby’s business and of course my Stampin’ Up business to take care of I may run out of time to either create or post from time to time.

I do have something to share with you today though and I have some other things to share over the next few weeks so I should be on a roll for a little while at least.

Today’s card is made using some items from the current Summer Mini Catalogue (ending on 31st March) and also one of the Sale-A-Bration stamp sets (available FREE with every $100 purchased until 29th February).
