Imagine the SU possibilties

Sharing with you a card I made recently for some ladies who have joined my team this month.

I used the Growing Green stamp set for the foliage and the sentiment is from Word Play. The colour combo is straight from my trusty Colour Coach- Old Olive, Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight.

So ‘WELCOME’ Helen, Janita, Adele and Debbie 🙂


Join me!!

I thought I had better share this awesome promotion from Stampin’ Up before the month is over and you miss out!!

This is the best price I have seen for our starter kit since I joined up in may 2009.

Loads of product at 50% off……BARGAIN!!!

You can use this kit to start your own business or just as a fantastic opportunity to get stuff at a great big discount.

Order the starter kit, get the gear and if you never put in another order there are no penalties and nothing you need to return 🙂

AND you’ll get access to the Stampin’ Up demonstrator website full of resources and ideas until at least December 2011.

Check out my website (on the right hand side of this page) or contact me if you want to know more…..

Hi! So where have I been??

I won’t bore you with where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to but instead will start to share what I can…….

Believe it or not I have recently done some stamping, classes, workshops, and other fun stuff including my first ever Stampalicious Team Retreat 🙂

We headed off to a gorgeous house down near Byron Bay and spent nearly 48 hours stamping and smiling and generally having a blast with other stampers.

Here are some of the ladies hard at work…..

We had a Christmas In July theme to kickstart our cards for the silly season and also give us an excuse to light the fireplace (it was actually a DVD) swap some gifts and have a big Christmas dinner.


Friday night we had our own Masterchef, Nicole, cater for us- Thanks Nic, it was awesome!!!

Over the weekend we also competed in a Mystery Box challenge, as well as a couple of colour challenges,

  and even a pressure test modelled around a covention swap made by the talented Nicole Derendorf . I think you’ll agree that Helen got pretty close 🙂

Here are some of our challenge winners proudly showing off their wares.

A great weekend was had by all and I’m already trying to come up with some new ideas for next year!!

September, Spring and new SU

click to view!

September brings a brand new Idea Book & Catalogue to Stampin’ Up Australia 🙂

AND it’s pretty nice too. If you don’t have a copy just contact me and I’ll get one to you.

I held my catalogue launch last weekend and had a blast with a great group of ladies.

As soon as I have a minute or two I will photograph some of our projects to share with you all.

YEP that’s right I’ll be back!!!

A big birthday

This is another birthday put together for a class  – if you want to come to one of these awesome classes check my SU business site for my schedule 🙂

It was inspired by a make and take, put together by my ‘granny’ upline Madonna, when she came south of the border for a team meeting. Changed to a Colour Coach combination of Elegant Eggplant, Melon Mambo, Baja Breeze and fiddled just a little bit this is what I came up with.


The circles are “mushed” together after going through the Big Shot with the lattice embossing folder (carried over from the Summer mini thank goodness and therefore still available)

  • Cardstock – Elegant Eggplant, Melon Mambo, Baja Breeze, Whisper White

A cupcake birthday

Guess what???? It’s another one of those birthday cards……you didn’t believe me when I said I’d made a lot, did you?

This one features the very cute cupcake punch from our new Autumn/Winter mini.

Crumb Cake seems to be spending a lot of time on my desk recently- the pink has disappeared for a littel while!! And I have been enjoying playing with ribbon in a few different ways, this one is a very easy ruffle, the messier the better- I like it 🙂
