New Catalogue + New Sets = New Cards!!

The new Idea Book and Catalogue has arrived!!

It is full of gorgeous samples using new sets and new papers and new accessories! We have lovely new patterned papers – a couple of packs and stamp sets you will remember from the mini catalogue we had last year. We have chipboard, colour caddy (to keep all your inkpads nice, neat and handy), spritzer tool to give that air brushed look, and single cardstock packs in your favourite colours so now you can buy them in a mixed pack or single colour packs!


This is my latest sample card using the Spring Flowers paper pack, Simply Said stamp set and the Spring Bouquet Flower Punch. You will remember these items from the Mini from last year. If you would like to see how to make this card you can email me to book a demonstration and not only will I show you how to make the card but you will also receive the finished card!

Time for Retirement?

Well we are coming to the end of the first year that Stampin’ Up!® has been in Australia and hasnt that year just flown by!

Being that the current Catalogue and Idea Book has been going for 12 months we are having a new release of a new Catalogue and Idea Book in April and as with all things they say change is as good as a holiday – although I would like to try the holiday just once!!

To make room for all the new products coming into the new Catalogue and Idea Book some of our current items are being ‘retired’ as of 31st March, 2007. So after this date you will no longer be able to purchase items on the retired list – so its now time to study the retired list and get your orders in quickly so you dont miss out on any of the sets that might be on your wish list.

Soooo run – dont walk to the 2007 Retirement List and email me with your list – dont forget all email/catalogue orders of $100 or over during March earns you a free gift – check out my Monthly Specials for full details.

The above card is using the Shapes and Shadows Set which will be retired 31st March, 2007

Scrap Buddy!!

My first night alone – well the girls were in bed and hubby was at an Eric Clapton concert – so it was lovely and quiet. Well until one of the kittens decided it was lonely and wanted company … so i picked him up and this is how we came to an agreement that he could sleep close by while i scrapped the Doodle Flower layout …

How cute is this little guy … just as well it was a warm night and i didnt need my slippers!!

Doodle here … Doodle there

Well I got my doodle genies today after patiently waiting for them to arrive (NOT!!)

So i finally got to complete the layout I wanted to use the templates on – I was inspired by one that I saw in the latest Creating Keepsakes magazine (Feb 2007).

Doodles & Flowers

All the flowers are ©Stampin’ Up!® and individually stamped and cut out – yes it took hours!!

Colour Challenge

I was lying in bed awake at 5am (sad but true) and thought I’d get up and do the cyber challenges for our Stampin’ Up!® Team.

This card is done combining the colour challenge (bravo burgundy, more mustard & ruby red) and the sketch challenge. Again I’ve used the Looks Like spring set and the ‘rock n roll’ technique on the flower and tag. This is the first time I’ve done the rock n roll and i must say I was impressed with how it turned out.

Presentation Day

Here are the girls proudly holding their trophies they received at the clubs Presentation Day. Caitlyn is also proudly displaying the Silver medal that was upgraded from bronze at the State Multiples Rhythmic Gymnastics Competition in November. Apparently there was an error in the tally sheet and in worked in her favour! I am so proud of them as they have done so much in Gymnastics in only 10 months – can you tell I am proud of them?? LOL

The layout is done using Spring Flowers designer papers and the frame is from the hodgepodge hardwareâ„¢ set and that lovely daisy from the Looks like Spring set.
