Still Time to buy a Voucher

These gift vouchers are still for sale right up until Christmas. Great for a last minute gift idea without having to battle with frantic shoppers ! They can be used during the upcoming promotion where you can get a free stamp set for every $100 spent on products.
I hope all your Christmas preparations are going well and you are still sane!

My Birthday

It was my birthday recently and I received some lovely handmade cards from my family. I thought i would show them to you.

The first is from my sister Melanie who lives in Perth
She used the Garden Whimsey stamp set which is favourite of mine. The butterflies look lovely in Groovy Guava and Old Olive.

The next card is from my mother-in-law Gwen who has embossed the hostess stamp set Oh So Lovely . The colours are very pretty.
The next card is by one of my sister in-laws, Annette. Annette has beautifully water coloured one of the images from the Sassy Stems stamp set.

My other sister in-law Jo likes to sew and she made this card with all the stitching. The flowers are from the Petal prints stamp set.

Thanks everyone for my lovely cards.

My Christmas Friend

You may have noticed this little santa at the back of my class picture. You could make him a more traditional Santa in red if you prefer. I will be giving out instructions in my Christmas gift class. He does look a bit like he is in his PJ's but i guess Santa has to sleep sometime.

Cost : $20.00 all supplies and instructions included
Date : Wednesday 10th December
Time : 7.30pm

Please click on my email address to book or just find out more.

The New Summer Mini Catalogue has arrived

The new summer catalogue has arrived. If you haven't already received one contact me on and i will mail you a copy free of charge.
Click on the photo to look at the catalogue online.
The catalogue has a lot of new products including an easy to use scallop punch ( no more fiddling around with corner rounders !), a scallop square punch and stamp sets that match the punches.They would make great Christmas Presents.
I have had a lot of fun with the stamp set Time for You. We have many bike riders in our family so it will get a lot of use.

Hope you enjoy the catalogue.

Once a month demonstrators from my team get together on line and make cards. A different demonstrator each month sets the challenges. One of the challenges this month was to make a card using a particular layout.

This was my effort !

The patterned paper came from the current mini catalogue and is called Apple Cider. Great for male cards. Although this card is probably not for a male. I used the 5 petal flower punch and the spring flower bouquet punch to make the flowers. It was lots of fun to make.

Reminder Products from the current Spring Mini catalogue are only available until the 30th November. Email me at to make a last minute order.

Single Stampin' Up! Markers for sale.

Stampin' Up! have a great special this month. From the 10th November you can buy markers individually for $4.95. There are 50 different colours to choose from but don't delay as the offer closes at the end of November.If you would like to make an order email me on

The following gift tags were made using the Old Olive Marker and the Real Red Marker. Instead of inking a stamp onto an ink pad you can colour directly on to the stamp. This stamp set is from the Spring mini catalogue and called 'Tags for all'. I think I will be using it for many years to come but perhaps in different colours.

At last I have a blog !!

Only a few more weeks until Christmas....the time is passing very quickly.

However there is still time to make your homemade Christmas cards.

The Christmas card in the photo above was made using the Stampin' Up! 'All about Christmas' jumbo wheel and the snowflake from the 'Season of Joy' stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Spring mini catalogue. The Season of Joy stamp set has to be my favourite at the moment. It is so flexible and can be used for both Birthday and Christmas cards.

Thanks for reading my first post on my new blog. Hopefully there will be more soon.

Look out for some great Stampin' Up! specials in November.

Happy Stamping !
