Some Christmas Cards & SAS cards

These are some of the cards we will be making at the next Stamp a Stack. The class is already fully booked but I thought those of you who aren't coming may like to have a look at what we will be doing. We will be making five Christmas cards and the other five small cards with matching envelopes. For those cards we are using the patterned paper from the level 1 hostess reward pack. The colours are Basic Gray, Brocade Blue, Apricot Appeal, Garden Green and Regal Rose. We will be using the Pocket Silhoutte Stamp set. The Christmas cards we are using the new stamp set from the Spring Mini Catalogue, Tree Trimmings.

This weekend I have been fiddeling around making some simple Christmas cards and I think that they could end up being a part of the October Stamp a Stack selection. See what you think.

Another Wallet

What dreadful weather we are having this weekend! You don't need three guesses to know what I've been doing. But firstly I wanted to show you another of the wallets I made. This time I did it in red and used one of my Cuttlebug folders to give it a different look. This one would be good to give to a female rather than the brown masculine one I showed you last time. I used half a velcro dot to fasten it and a large gold brad for decoration. I thought it turned out really well. What do you reckon?

August Stamp Club

On Thursday we had our monthly Stamp Club get together and what a great night it was. We made Father's Day Wallets, perfect for giving Dad some cash or a gift voucher. I didn't have any gift cards so just put a couple of the cards in my purse in to give you the idea! I got the design from a website called "Dannie's Designs" there is a great tutorial video and it's really quite easy to make.

This month's hostess had a really great workshop, She had collected some outside orders, had a big order herself and then all the other club members order up big too!! So she ended up with a couple of Free hostess stamp sets and over $200 worth of Free products!!

Of course if you are in a stamp club you don't have to order up big, you just commit to spending $50 a month for six months, it's a great way to gradually get the things you have on your Wish List. We get together at my place once a month to place the orders and usually make a project. It's always a fun night. If this sounds like something you would be interested in let me know and I can put your name down for when I spot opens up or if there is enough interest we can start a new group.

Sept Classes & New Mini Catalogue!!!

Here is a picture of the cards we will be making at the September Technique of the Month classes. These classes will be held on Tuesday 1st September and Wednesday 2nd September. If you are interested in coming along please contact me. The colours used during the classes may vary. Below I have used Taken with Teal, Night of Navy and Whisper White on the first card, and Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze and Whisper White on the second card. The patterned paper is Urban Garden and the gorgeous larger butterfly is from one of the new stamp sets in the Spring Mini Catalogue "Great Friends". I really love this card (the butterfly one).

Oh, that's right, I forgot to tell you about the new Mini Catalogue that is just out. I haven't made any samples with my new sets yet, sorry! As soon as I do you will be the first to know. In the mean time if you would like to have a look at the mini go to the Stampin' Up! web site (click on the link to the right) and check it out. Or if you would like a copy contact me. If there is anything you would like to order please get in touch either by phone or email.

Til next time happy stamping!

I'm Back!

Above are the cards we made at last weeks Stamp a Stack. Ten cards in a couple of hours can get rather hectic, but we usually have a lot of fun! From now until December each S A S we will be making at least 5 Christmas cards, so it's a great way to build up a stash ready for sending out when the time comes.

Did you wonder where I had got to?

Sorry for the long break between posts, we have been away on a holiday. Since I got back I have been busy with classes and just generally catching up on things.

The holiday was good, we went on a 16 night cruise to several Asian countries. It was lovely to have some nice warm weather, though the weather hasn't been too bad since we got home.

After the cruise we stayed in Perth for four days to celebrate my Dad's 80th Birthday. It was lovely to get together with most of the family.
