Latte Fun Day

Hi … hope you all had a lovely weekend and all the Dad’s had a good Father’s Day!

Saturday I held my first Latte Team Fun Day.  We had lots of fun with lots of chatting, food, product demonstrations and make and takes and lots of samples for the girls to take photo’s of and get inspiration from.

Libby demonstrated the new GiftBox Punchboard …

Virginia demonstrated the Blendabilities …

Narelle demonstrated Project Life by Stampin’ Up! …

We had lots of food to eat and yes my family will be eating most of it for the next week or three! We also had real coffee and make and takes and even a demonstration from me!

We even had some door prizes …


We all had a great day and I’m already planning the next one so if this is something you’d like to attend be sure to let me know and I’ll pop you on the list.  The next one will be early in 2015.

Thanks for stopping by …. be sure to pop back tomorrow to see the make and takes!


Bloomin’ Blendabilities

What a beautiful day it was yesterday for our first day of Spring!

It was a gorgeous sunny day and 24°C and I’m not really sure what happened overnight but we’ve got a mere 17°C forecast for today’s top temperature … give me back Spring please!!

Well I suppose if you dont have control over the weather you can control your surroundings and today I’m surrounding myself with lovely fresh scents in my Scentsy warmer and pretty cards to brighten my mood like this ‘spring’ card …


I love colouring and I love it more now we have the Blendabilities!  They are so easy to colour with and you can get so much depth with very little effort. I do think I’ll whip mine out shortly and colour some new stamps and put that cheery spring smile back on my heart.

I do need to make a few samples anyway as I’m holding my first Latte Fun Day this Saturday.

Would you like to come? It is designed for my team for a little training and a chance for them to get to know each other a little better and get some ideas and cards made for the Holiday Catalogue.  It’s being held at a local hall in Rosemeadow and we are having some demonstrations on the Blendabilities, Project Life and the new Gift Box Punchboard plus there’ll be make n takes to complete and some yummy food and beverages to consume.

You will need to register by Thursday and there’s is a registration fee of just $30 so be sure to let me know as soon as possible if you wish to come – I only have a few tickets left so be sure to register and pay as soon as possible.

I hope you have a lovely Tuesday and remember this week’s Weekly Deals finish today! Here they are to refresh your memory …

Cruisin for free Stamps?

Have I got something cute and something special for you today!!

I’ve got the cutest, easiest, sweetest little bags for you today!

These are a bag Maryann Cowan, a Canadian Demonstrator shared on a Training Group a couple of weeks ago – she shared the smallest one and after making it I knew I had to make more. Now she’d only made the one size and I got to thinking how cute would they be in different sizes?  So all I did was make one of the lengths a bit longer and here they all are!


Are these cute or what??

Now you might be wondering what’s with the blog title ‘Cruisin Totes’ well you may remember about the Grand Vacation I earned last year with Stampin Up to Utah. Well I have till the end of March to earn the next trip which is a Cruise to the West Carribbean on the Allure of the Seas and I’m within reach … well sorta … and I could use your help in getting there … now all you have to do is to either Host a Stampin’ Up! Party or Private Class (yes something new!) or place an order.

Stampin’ Up! Sponged Florets

Happy Monday to you!

I had a busy weekend with a Fundraiser Workshop on Saturday night and last week I signed up to sell Scentsy products now they are in Australia and we do love candles and melts and I love their system with no flame so I wont have to go buy all those tea lights any more!! I had my Scentsy Launch on Sunday.  We had lots of fun and the ladies appear to love the Scentsy Warmers, Bars and other products as much as I do so we had heaps of fun sniffing and talking about the scents.  If you’d like to learn more about Scentsy you can check out my Scentsy Website

Here’s a card I made recently which was cased from a card I saw on Pinterest ….


Stamps: Fabulous Florets, Field of Flowers
Paper: Whisper White, Pistachio Pudding, Vellum
Inks: Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Stampin Daubers, Big Shot, Beautiful Wings Embosslit

A sweet simple card – great for any occasion.

The flower and leaves were stamped on a separate piece of Whisper White then stamped, cut out and sponged then layered with Stampin Dimensionals.

I hope you like this clean, elegant card and if you’d like to make this card at your workshop please dont hesitate to contact me to book your workshop in.

Are  you free Saturday?  I have my monthly Stamp A Stack at 2pm.  We make 6 cards – 2 each of 3 different designs for just $20.  We have lots of fun and and enjoy the time out of our regular routine.  Contact me to reserve your spot.
