Sweet Always...

This is the box and cards we made at Tuesday nights class (its a Lauren Meader designed box adjusted for our size cards).  Everyone choose their own paper and colour scheme and even though only one person actually finished their cards on the night (the rest stamped some images so they could finish them off at home) I had so much fun and think everyone else did too (it's always a good night when crafting is involved!).  I am loving the Sweet Always DSP.  The colours are so delicious - they remind me of strawberries and chocolate.  Anyway I'm off to paint - our new house (well it's a half finished house:)

Woo Hoo Over $3000 Raised for SIDS and Kids

Thanks to these girls for making it happen (that's me in the middle :) )

We had such a great night last night I was so excited that we raised over $3000 for SIDS and Kids.  Jacinda and I managed to share our stories without too many tears, I was worried I wouldn't get through it but managed to share most of what I wanted to say.  Jacinda also shared which I thought was amazing, her son was stillborn just a little over a year ago and she has a six week old baby, not sure I could've done it when everything was still so raw.

We had so many wonderful donations, thank you so much to everyone who contributed prizes, bid in the auction, bought raffle tickets, came along, bought cards, did a make n take, had supper, bought a coffee, joined the guessing competition etc etc.  I really appreciate your support.

Gratitude and Thanks

I needed some Thank you cards the other day and once I got started I didn't want to stop.  I was so excited to be using new stamps and my new white StazOn!!  Demonstrators have opportunities to earn free stamps and I recently earned some free stamp sets and got to choose 3 sets from the catalogue, I've actually earned 4 sets and I only started in May (so gratitude and thanks to Stampin Up).

One set I chose was Life Definitions (IBC pg 123).  I can't wait to see it's potential on my scrapbooking pages (when I get back to them that is!!!).  I used the Gratitude stamp by stamping on white gloss paper with white stazon then when dry sponging Baja Breeze over the top.  The StazOn 'resists the' Baja and shows through!  Isn't that neat (I learnt that little tip at a Stampin Up team meeting, thanks Nerida). 

I'm also loving the Echoes of Kindness Level 2 Hostess set.  The flowers are just so pretty and the quote by Mother Teresa is lovely.

Ink and Cardstock:  Baja Breeze, Basic Grey, Whisper White, Old Olive.

Love this butterfly

Great friend has got to be one of my favourite sets at the moment.  This is one of the cards we made at a recent workshop with the lucky door prize - a matching envelope bag full of chocolate and ribbon.  The card base is So Saffron with matching ribbon from last month's special.  I've stamped the 'twigs' with Kiwi Kiss and the butterflies with Rose Red.  Feels a bit like spring!!

Borrowed Baby & a SIDS & Kids Special!!

I borrowed the Nursery Necessities set from another Demonstrator in my team.  I've been eyeing it off for ages but couldn't decide if I really needed it!  So I thought I'd make a girly version of the Rock A Bye Baby card.  I think it's cute.

Just a reminder that I am offering a special that is available through me for this month only! Everyone that books and holds a workshop this month I will donate $20 to SIDS and Kids (read this post to find out why SIDS & Kids). I will also give you an ink pad in a colour of your choice absolutely free (and the gifts increase with workshop sales). This is as well as all the fantastic hostess gifts that Stampin' Up! offer. Call me now on 0403 528 522 before I'm all booked out!!

Make sure you also check out Stampin' Up's World Card Making Day Special and the new Demo special too!!

Three posts in one day!!! There is just so much stuff happening....

There has been and still is so much going on in my life.  But I have actually been creating!  I always seem to need baby cards so I thought I'd get ahead and make a few for my stash.  I think I quite like this one. I've got more to show you over the next few days (week?? perhaps, lol).

Become a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and make a difference!

For over 20 years, Stampin' Up! has helped women make a difference in the lives of others by simply doing what they love to do--sharing creativity.

My hubby signed me up in May and I have had so much fun the last few months.  I've met new people, learned new skills, made stacks of cards and had SOOOOOO much fun along the way.  It's so easy to sell something that you love because they love it to!!
