Stampin’Up is an incredibly generous company and keeps aside retired products in large filled to the brim boxes for worthy causes. Through the assistance of my upline I have two such boxes, and two great opportunities for each of you to join us on different nights to support two different organisations.

Each night will consist of a project, followed by an auction, games, and to finish up the night a movie.

Cost $10 including supper, or bring a plate and pay only $5.

Big News!

Big News from the Melbourne Convention!  And so terrifically exciting!!

First up - exciting news for hostesses!  How would you like an extra $70 to spend on Stampin' Up! products? For holding a $450 workshop (excluding shipping and handling) between May 23rd - June 30, 2011 you will get a level 1 hostess stamp set and $110 to spend on any product you like! Normally, a $450 workshop gives you a level 1 hostess stamp set and $40 to spend on product. Contact me to book you workshop today. If you live to far away for me to travel to do you workshop, how about a catalogue party? Show the catalogue around to friends and collect orders and get your hostess benefit's that way.

And just as big news for anyone who has EVER been interested in becoming a Stampin'Up demonstrator, hobby or other -  ABN's are no longer required to join Stampin' Up! If needing an ABN had put you off in the past, contact me for more information.  There are so many benefits to becoming a demonstrator!

I'm so excited about both bits of news! I hope you are too!

World Cardmaking Day!

October 2nd was World Card Making Day!
Did you make any cards?
I got inspired from multiple sources

Michelle Zindorf -



Gretchen Barron - I pretty much cased this card from beginning to end, with the xception of colour which I used Elegant Eggplant, I also dropped the ribbon since I had none in the right colour scheme



Other Blogs - I've been collecting so many mental pictures lately I wouldn't even know where to begin guessing these styles came from
















and inside


With many of the these cards I finally found myself inking up my brayer, I LOVE it, evenly inked stamps EVERY time and so many other wonderful benefits - eg the background hills on the owl scene.

Don't forget to email me about the watercolour class if you're interested!

Next month I'm considering a brayer class!

Just Add Ink Challenge 36

I keep hearing about these challenges from Just Add Ink and seeing some amazing creations.  Now that the school holidays are on, I have some more time to play, here's the sketch for inspiration



and here's my submission



and the inside


stamps- Circle circus & Occasional Quotes (level 3 hostess)
ink - Pumpkin Pie, craft white, Tempting Turquoise
paper - Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie
Punches - 1 3/4 circle, exra large scallop circle
Big Shot - Timeless Type Junior Alphabet
Ribbon - retired Pumpkin Pie striped grosgrain

This is a quick and easy card, and while I'd had a slightly different idea, I'm happy with the results, except for barely being able to see the stamping on the Pacific Point.  I had Tempting Turquoise out so I used it, and while you can see it, it is very faint!
