Hi Everyone,

Here's a movie of the swaps I received at the Perth Regionals last weekend! (Well at least I hope it works for you!!)

I can't show you what we made just yet as there are still other Regional Seminars to take place over the next month or so and I've got lots of photos of other swaps from the display board which I'll show you soon too.

And here's my downline Courtney and I:

And as Courtney said on her blog, we are about the same height, I just had boots on instead of my standard sneakers :)

Please email me if you'd like to find out more and remember today is the last day to order the discounted starter kit or the mini starter kit.

Somewhere safe to keep your treasures....

Hi Everyone,

It's every girl's dream to have somewhere safe to keep her treasures... Actually it's probably most grown-up girls dreams too and to have lots of diamonds to keep in the said treasure box..... 

I made these 'one of a kind' treasure boxes up with some retired designer series paper, and my Big Shot with the Timeless Type Alphabet, Beautiful Wings and Floral Fusion dies (the leaves have been punched with the bird punch).

The cool thing about these treasure boxes is that they open from the top and have 3 little sections plus a drawer underneath and are a really great size to keep either jewellery or stationery treasures tucked away.

Hi Everyone,

Over the weekend, we were lucky enough to finally catch up with many of our friends in 1 night.... I had 3 b'day presents to catch up on and thought I'd show you how I 'dressed up' 2 of the presents.

Firstly I made 2 notebooks (this is one of them):

Bought some goodies some Eirian Body Products and popped them into a gift box, added a cellophane bag and some ribbon and VOILA! A one of a kind gift!!

 The goodies for this gift are from Delish Lights, I added some handmade flowers and some leaves made from the 5 petal flower, boho blossoms and bird punches, added some ribbon and VOILA another one of a kind gift!!

Both Eirian Body Products and Delish Lights are buddies of mine from The Glades Art & Product Markets - the next one is Oct 15th 4-9pm if you looking for something to do!

Another week, another b'day!

Hi Everyone,

Just a super quick post today....

Miss 4 had another friend who celebrated her b'day this week..... This is the card and note book we gave to her with some stickers, hair clips and pencils.

Excuse the funny colours, I had to take the pics inside as it was cold and wet here yesterday when I needed to photograph it! And no the image isn't a Stampin' Up! one unfortunately, I just had to use her cos I reckon she's pretty darn cute!

Father's Day Cards

Hi Everyone,

The last couple of days not included, but I've been a bit slack over the last few weeks with updating my blog.... I realised I hadn't even shown you some of the father's day cards I made, so here they are (just in case you didn't see them in my facebook album):



The origami style shirts were inspired by this page

Special order puppy punch art

Hi Everyone,

This card was a special order for Jenny, one of the lovely ladies I've met at The Glades Art and Produce Markets in Byford.

So this card is for the special lil' fella in her life:

The punch art is inspired by Pat Carr, a wonderfully talented demo here in Perth and who doesn't have a blog but makes some truly wonderful punch art creatures!! She showed this puppy at the Stamp Camp I attended last year.

I also made these super cute cupcake toppers with some puppy images Jenny gave me.

ESAD New Catalogue Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the ESAD New Idea Book & Catalogue Blog Hop!! On this journey you will see loads of new products that have just been released, (so maybe grab a cuppa and a wishlist & pen too lol). If you are already on the journey, you will have come from Michelle's page.

What is ESAD?

ESAD stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and it is an on-line group just for Australian and New Zealand Stampin Up demonstrators.

We so love what we do and not only do we love to share it with our customers, friends, and wonderful blog visitors, but we share our love for what we do with each other as demonstrators. We run swaps, challenges, tutorials, product know-how, and cyberstamps, and we are always there to help and support each other when it is needed.

So if you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand, then please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group

As soon as I saw the "Something for Christmas" Stamp (only $19.95!!) I straight away knew I wanted it, and with the festive season fast approaching, that want turned into a need!

Here's my first card using the NEW In Colours Pool Party & Indigo Island with a touch of Whisper White. I've also used some Shimmer Paint, which is new to my craft stash although it did appear in the last IBC.

I have also been lucky enough to play with the new Pennants Die (thanks to my friend and downline Courtney!!) and I made this pennant banner for the Byford Spring Fair on Sunday. Now to work out where to hang it on the day lol :)

And part of the Pennant Die are these doilies that I have turned into a flower garden at the base of my new display stand.

Just need to add some leaves...
Now if you are taking part in the blog hop, you can be in the running for some blog candy if you live in Australia or New Zealand (ie: a prize!!). To enter, you need to visit and comment on everyone's page, then email Sharlene, advising you name, email and location. If you are a winner, you will be contacted for your postal details. Please note, demonstrators are not eligible to win the Blog Candy.

To continue on your hop, please visit Sharlene's page. Have fun!!

Miss 4's friend

Hi Everyone,

It would seem that several of the girls from my Miss 4's class are going to have their b'days late in the year.... In an effort to get each of them something different, I thought I'd make them a little something each.

Here's a personalised notebook for one...

Then we just added some shop bought pencils and a pen/roller stamper kit
If you are interested in a personalised notebook or gift for someone special, please contact me.
