Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper Shares

Good Morning and Happy Saturday to you!

Well it’s another chilly one here today … my girls are struggling – it’s way too cold apparently. I do remind them it IS winter and no I wont be turning the heater up and maybe they should be wearing more than shorts and a tshirt!  but hey I’m just a mum so what would I know right?

How are you enjoying the new catalogue?  So many gorgeous things right?  I am loving all the new stuff and need to have it all and looked at purchasing all the pretty papers then realised just how much it was going to cost me and thought wow you must be feeling the same.

So I thought it was time for a Paper Share or two so today I’m here with another of my Card Front Shares for you.  Normally with a Paper Share people offer 6×6 pieces and you only get one piece per sheet however with my Card Front Shares (6×4) you’ll have two pieces of each sheet and its more than sufficient to cover the front of a card or cut up as you require.


Designer Series Paper Card Front Share – $25

You will receive 96 pieces of 4×6 – that’s 12 pieces per Designer Series Paper Pack and 2 of each sheet!


 Backgrounds Designer Series Paper Stack Card Front Share $35.00

These Papers are in Family Colours and you’ll receive 4 of each colour in Subtles, Regals, Neutrals and Brights and 8 of each colour in the In Colours. That’s a total of 240 pieces of 4×6!


Specialty Designer Series Paper Card Front Share $7

You’ll receive 36 pieces in this pack – 24 from Typeset Pack and 12 from Gold Soiree Pack – all pieces are 6×4

Purchasing these Share Packs means you’ll get 2 pieces of every Designer Series Paper we have so you can then work out which is your favourite and can then buy the full packs of those.  All the prices I’ve quoted include postage so there’s nothing to add. Simply which pack or packs you’d like – you can get one or two packs or you can buy all three!  If you decide to buy all three you’ll pay just $65 – so that’s more savings for you!

To order your Card Front Share simply contact me or fill in the form below and I’ll contact you!

Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions at all please dont hesitate to contact me



Ah-mazing Birthday

Happy Friday!

While I was at the Stampin’ Up! Convention in Melbourne we created an awesome little Note Card set in a pouch and were encouraged to share our project on Instagram and start using Instagram as a business tool and if you are following me on Instagram you’ll know I’ve been using it a bit lately!

Here’s the Note Card Set we made ….


This set uses our Note Card and Envelopes, Star Framelits, Gold Glimmer paper and the lovely new Gift Card Enclosure Packs.


As you can see these few elements make an awesome gift set of cards!


This set was made using the Amazing Birthday Stamp Set which is new in the Annual Catalogue and really could be used for many occasions and not just birthdays!

Want to make this little gift set?  You can either come to my place or I can come to yours – just grab a few of your friends together and you’ll get your class for free – contact me for all the details and to book your date in.

If you are on Instagram and would like to follow me simply click the logo below or in my sidebar so you’ll see all my creations as they happen and keep yourself updated on all my news!

Notes of Kindness

Happy Thursday to you!

I think I’m getting back to the groove now after the aweseome Grand Vacation in May from Stampin’ Up! and then the Stampin’ Up! Convention just days after our return.  While the trips are amazing and I had an absolute ball in Melbourne it does weird and wondrous things to one’s body.  Not really sure why but it does – not sure if it’s due to ‘age’ or whether its the vast number of kilometres (or miles) travelled or the numerous timezones one goes through but it tends to have a lingering effect.

I’m glad to be back today with the Weekly Time Out projects and emails and I hope you are too!

On Tuesday I shared my In Colour Work of Art Notes  and today I have again used the awesome Note Cards & Envelopes and new In Colours from Stampin’ Up! …


When I first saw the new In Colours I wasnt totally sold on them but I did love the Blackberry Bliss – how could one not – it IS purple after all!  I must say though the more I use them the more I love them!  I am loving the richness of these colours and their earthy/autumn and dare I say ‘masculine’ tones!

These cards are super easy to do and to give each card a bit of depth I stamped the flower image three times but again with just the one inking …


This gives the card depth and you aren’t hit with the full on colour on each flower which prevents them from melding into one big image.


Now dont forget about my special “In Colour Bundle” I’m offering …

2014-2016 In Colour Bundle – just  $130 including shipping!

Work of Art Notes

Good Morning!

This past weekend I spent at Macarthur Square at the Handmade and Boutique Markets and it was lovely (once the sun shone on our Gazebo) being their for their first Markets. It was lovely to meet so many lovely people and share Stampin’ Up! with them and show them a few of our creations.

One set of cards I had to show uses the new In Colours and the new Work of Art Stamp set …


I love creating sets of cards with the Stampin’ Up! Notecards and Envelopes – they are so affordable and you get 20 in a pack so you can make lots of cards or a few different sets.

I actually had a lady ask me on the weekend if I’d painted them all – I wish I was that talented! My grandfather was and painted some beautiful pictures of which I proudly display in my home.  I cant draw and I cant paint so I stamp!  With these cards I simply inked up the ‘paint swipe’ stamp and then stamped it four times down the card without reinking.

In celebration of the new catalogue and the arrival of the new In Colours I have two bundles for you today ….

2014-2016 In Colour Bundle – just  $130 including shipping!

  • 2014-2016 In Colour Ink Pad and Cardstock Kit

Watercolour Blocking

Good Morning!

Yesterday I shared two card for my team challenge for Colour Blocking and today I’m sharing with you another way to use this technique.  The final result of this technique gives a ‘Watercolour’ look and its quite easy to gorgeous results.

Here’s a card I made using Autumn Colours – Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey and Tangello Twist …


For this technique you will need …

  • White Cardstock
  • Acrylic Block
  • Classic Ink Pads – 2 colours
  • Stampin Spritzer (filled with water)
  • Stamps
  • Tissues/Paper Towel

All you need to do is ink up your block in your chosen colours making sure the colours dont meet as you dont want to mix your inks on the pad.  Spritz with water and move your block to mix the colours – you may need to add an extra spritz or two if you havent got enough water on your block.  Once you are happy with the mix simply stamp onto your card.  Once the cardstock is dry where you stamped use your stamps to complete your card and embellish accordingly.

Here’s another card done using Blackberry Bliss and Strawberry Slush …


Here is a video tutorial to show you how easy it is to complete this technique …

I do hope you like creating with this technique – it is lots of fun and gives such an awesome finished effect.  If you have any questions at all or if you’d like me to show you how to do this technique please dont hesitate to contact me to arrange your own private class for you and your friends or register for my class. At this stage I am taking names for the class and will contact you when the class is proceeding to arrange a date with you.

Want the class for free? Simply place a $100 order and I’ll send you the kit and Instructions for free!

Colour Block Stamping

Hi … Happy Monday to you!  I do hope you had a wonderful weekend.

My weekend was a full on family gig with my nephew getting married on Saturday and Sunday we had the ‘post wedding family bbq’ .

It’s funny how things happen in life. Shane married the daughter of one of my best friends from Church Youth Group days! She was my close friend that lost her battle with cancer about 18 months ago and through Jude’s illness and my nephew’s relationship with Tash my friendship with her sister (and Tash’s Aunt) have been renewed and strengthened.  Yesterday it was lovely to sit and relax with my Dad (from Victoria), my brother (Perth) and his family (Perth, Victoria and Brisbane) and my sister and her family. We dont get to be together like this often so it was a real blessing and Rob (my neices’ hubby) cooks a mean bbq!  It was a shame my younger sister and her hubby couldnt make it due to my Brother-in-law having a Heart Attack 10 days ago. Thankfully he is home and recuperating.

Now each Sunday I give the girls in my Stamp A Latte Team a challenge for them to complete during the week and this week I’ve given them a Technique Challenge. The Technique they need to create with is called Colour Blocking – well its what I could find it was called and it could be a different name so we’ll go with that.  You simply ink up your acrylic blocks directly to the clear block and then stamp that onto a card for some really cool looks and backgrounds.

Here’s one I’ve done using Tempting Turquoise and the Too Kind stamp set …


I simply inked around the edges of the block and then used a sponge to soften the inside edges then stamped onto my card.  I actually was a little crooked when I stamped the block so I chose to cut it out and popped it on with Dimensionals.  The flowers from Too Kind are stamped in Crisp Cantaloupe and Tangello Twist.  The Sentiment comes from a new Hostess set called Let Your Hair Down and it has some cool sentiments in it.

Here’s another card I made with the same technique and a new stamp set called ‘An Open Heart‘ …


This card was so super easy and I’ve gone with the colour combination of Early Espresso, Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey.

I’ve used one of the smaller blocks to stamp the squares which I stamped off first as I just wanted a soft colour there.  How do you like that sentiment?  I saw that and went wow – it’s perfect for hard times and not just sympathy. Sometimes we just cant find the words to say so we have to let our hearts ‘speak’.  I do love that little bird too!

I do have a couple of more cards to show you but I’ll share them tomorrow with a video tutorial once the video uploads to YouTube!

Project Life … my introduction

Good Afternoon … hope you are staying warm on this cool wintery day.

I have my new Catalogue Launch this Sunday so thought it was time to crack open my Project Life kit and use the new printer hubby has bought me to print photo’s for my Project Life pages.

I dont consider myself a Scrapbooker although I have done a few layouts in the past but they always seemed to take forever as I deliberated about the colours to use, the embellishments and then the placement of the photo’s and then there was the journalling!  Some pages took days to complete – and no I’m not kidding!

Then Stampin’ Up! announced their partnership with Becky Higgins and I was like cool.  Becky created Project Life a few years back as she wanted a quicker and more simpler way to record her memories and share her story and photo’s instead of just popping them in a shoebox or storing them on her PC – sound like someone else you know?? so ok I dont have shoeboxes but I do have drawers of photo’s!  I love the simplicity of Becky’s Project Life system as it still tells your story and records your memories but it is so much quicker and easier – especially on those like me who ‘deliberate’.

So here’s a very quick page I did using our 12×12 layouts about the Stampin’ Up! Convention in Melbourne …


I do have lots more photo’s from the Stampin’ Up! Convention so no doubt you’ll be seeing a few more layouts in the not too distant future. The 12×12 Pocket Pages come in packs of 12 ( 2 each of 6 designs) pages for just $11.95 – thats less than $1 per page so it’s not expensive either!

Project Life Pocket Page Sleeves

There are heaps of different layouts so your pages wont all look the same and we will have 6×8 Pocket Pages as well so you’ll have a choice on what size album you’d like to do. Here’s one page that I did very quickly to start off my “Grand Vacation” album …


We have lots of Project Life products you can use to complete your pages and I’m more than happy to come and do a Project Life Private Class with you and your friends should you wish to see what all the fuss is about.  All you have to do is contact me to book in your day then just invite your friends and I’ll do the rest!

Here’s a video to give you a little look into Project Life and see how easy it really is …

A selection of the Project Life products are now available in my Stampin Up Online Store and the rest will follow when the new catalogue starts on 1st July with the albums being available from 15th July. To shop now simply click on the banner below or contact me to place your order.



Did you know that if you were to join Stampin’ Up! you could order Project Life products in your Stampin’ Up! kit?

Also, if you were to join before 30th June you have the choice of 2 Stampin’ Up! kits – either $85 or $169!  You’ll enjoy the Demonstrator Discount price on all your products plus the opportunity to earn free products just by doing what you love! You could even earn the Grand Vacation to Hawaii next year!  How nice would that be?  The girls in the Pandora shop thought it was pretty cool when I told them about the cruise I’ve just been on!

Thanks for stopping by and please, if you have any questions about Project Life, joining up or about Stampin’ Up! in general please do not hesitate to contact me – or let me know and I’ll call you if you’d prefer.


Fringed Rainbow

Good Morning & Happy Monday to You!

I love Mondays!  It’s my ‘me’ day – my day when hubby has gone off to work and the girls have gone off to school and I can do those things I wanted to do on the weekend but couldnt. It’s when I sit down with that cuppa and just let out the sigh that I made it through another weekend with the teenagers!

Now if only today was a little brighter and warmer outside – yep while our Northern Hemisphere friends are reveling in their warmer weather our temperature is dropping as we head into Winter.  So today is the perfect day to share my Fringed Rainbow Card – it’s the final project we made at Club last month using the Fringed Scissors – mind you there are so many other ideas you can use the Scissors for so be sure to grab yourself a pair!

I am hoping this bright card will warm you up ….


How bright and cheery is this card?  it also happens to be quite easy to do as well!

I love this stamp that comes with the Hip Hip Hooray Card Kit – it worked perfectly with this card as did the Starburst Framelit!

This layout is great for the brights like this or you could make an Ombre Card using various shades of the one colour going light to dark - they look really awesome too!

So how did I get the sentiment in different colours?  I simply coloured my stamp with the different coloured markers, huffed on it and then stamped it on my white card. Why did I huff on it?  well it simply re moistens the ink and gives me a great reference to Darth Vader/Star Wars at my workshops and classes!

Have you liked my ‘Fringed’ projects?  Would you like the Project Sheets (with step by step instructions) for all three projects? They will be yours when you purchase your Fringed Scissors from me!  So contact me now or hop on over to my online Stampin Store to place your order. Once you’ve placed your order the files will be sent to you – if you’d rather me print them and post them to you just let me know!

Now I think it’s time to make a coffee and crack open my Blendabilities or my Project Life goodies … hmm what to choose??

Thanks for stopping by ….
