Scrap IN

On the weekend I attended a Scrap IN . Scrapping (cardmaking or whatever craft you wanted to do) weekend, it was organised by Corrina, Rachael and Naomi, and was a fund raiser for the Cancer Council. Congratulations ladies you did a great job! and you even managed to do lots of scrap booking too. I didn't really get that much accomplished, but I did a few things. I made a birthday card for my mum. It's her birthday this coming Friday.

A card organiser for myself, I've made about five of these in the past but have given them all away as presents.

I received a calendar from my upline Jayne last year so I took that along and used it to figure out how to make one. I thought that it would make a good class later in the year. The calendars are nice little presents for friends and teachers etc.


The final thing I made was a baby card for a friend/customer who has just had a baby girl. I used the new jumbo wheel 'Baby Tees' available in the new catalogue.

Hope you like them, everyone else seemed to be making heaps of stuff. I told them it was quality not quantity that counts!

See you again soon, I think I have redeemed myself a little bit today, with all these photos and posting twice in the one day.
Bye for now,


Back so soon!!

Well how about this twice in one day. Here are the photos of last weeks Stamp a Stack. We made five Christmas Cards and five general purpose cards with a Father's Day card in there for good measure.
The Christmas cards used a new stamp set I recently got 'Christmas Classics'. It is in the 2009-2010 catalogue and will be in the new catalogue too, which starts in just one weeks time.

Don't send flowers I am still alive!!

I'm so sorry I have been very slack at updating my blog. I was sick and I have been / still am very busy, but I am so sorry I haven't got on here and at least put up a few photos or something
Earlier I promised I would update you on my holiday. Well that seems a bit overwhelming here's the short version. We spent a month in England visiting our daughter. We spent the majority of our time in Leeds in Yorkshire (that's where she and her partner live). We had a long weekend in St Ives, Cornwall and another weekend in London. While in London we saw two shows - Phantom of the Opera and Pricilla Queen of the Desert (should that be desert or dessert??? you know what I mean).

It was really lovely being over there and seeing where she lives and works etc and everything was very pretty and green and leafy. They have beautiful parks and gardens over there. In St Ives (lots of other places too) there were gorgeous hanging baskets and window boxes every where you looked.

My husband was amazed by the tides in St Ives. The beach there was so different to here. He took hundreds of photos of the different stages of the tide!!!

The public transport over there is brilliant and we did most of our travelling around on buses or trains. Did quite a bit of shopping. Mainly looking but did buy one or two things.

The night before we left we went to Opera in the Park and that was a lovely way to finish off the holiday. Unfortunately the weather wasn't the best but we still had a great night.

Thanks for looking, and for coming back after so long without an update! I promise I will be back soon with some pictures of last weeks Stamp a Stack and photos of the things I made last weekend at the ScrapIN I went to.

Cheerio for now

Last Chance List

Embrace Life

Wild About You

Hi Everyone,

I'm back from my holiday, but more about that later. Big news for today is the Stampin' Up! Last Chance List is out! The current Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalogue has been around for quite a while, due to the change over being changed from April to September. Finally we are in the last month and today sees the release of the 'Last Chance List'. What used to be known as the Retiring List. So to find out what isn't going to be making it into the new catalogue, check it out here . If there is anything on that list that you really want, contact me sooner rather than later to place an order.

The list looks very long, but just remember it contains all those colour products that are retiring. Also, all the punches are going, but they will be back (plus some new designs), all in the new style - like the Extra Large Two Step Bird punch in the Autumn Winter mini catalogue. Items on the list will be available until the end of August, or until stock lasts. ie once it runs out that is it. Already out of stock is Close to Cocoa A4 cardstock and Sweet Slumber specialty Designer Series Paper.

I will tell you about my holiday next time. I just wanted to let you know about this now. Take care, and I look forward to catching up with everyone soon.
