Stampin' Blends meet Petal Passion DSP meet inspiration from a Mercedes

Hi all

I have made a beautiful card that I would love to share with you. I have really taken a shine to Stampin' Blends.  I LOVE them.  Colouring with anything else just isn't as fun!

Stampin' Up!® has also released a beautiful black and white DSP called Petal Passion.

What happens if you mix the two and colour in the Petal Passion?  THIS!!

One of the pages is covered with flowers which I coloured in with my Stampin' Blends.  Then I had to cut it (!!!!) to fit behind this faux polaroid frame.

And there's envelopes to match!!

And the Mercedes?? Mercedes Weber is one of the talented members of Stampin' Up!s Artisan Design Team.  She made a 'polaroid' card using another type of DSP.  So I CASEd her design.

Love in the mailbox!

This is what the full set of DSP looks like!  Definitely some more colouring potential there and also some striking black and white projects to be made.

Don't forget that it is Sale-a-Bration. For every $90 you spend, you get to choose a SAB item for FREE!  And there are two extra special SAB items with a $180 spend.

You can browse the SAB catalogue by clicking on the SAB pic on the left side bar.

If you have a big wish list SAB is a great time to join.  You can even join as a Hobby Demonstrator - just for the discount.
You pay $169 for $235 of product of your choice (that's $66 for free!) AND during SAB you get to choose two extra stamp sets.  Yowsa!

Don't just sit there thinking about it!  I would love you to join my team!

Yesterday..... Launch for Rosies

I had a great morning yesterday with my launch of the new Stampin' Up!® Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogues.  Nineteen ladies braved the heat to join in the fun.

I have a great time preparing for my launches.   It's fun to get a variety of displays ready to inspire everyone.

The ladies spent the morning completing the make and takes - here are some busy hands....

And here are the make and takes:

Heartfelt Blooms is one of the fantastic Sale-a-Bration offerings.  This card is straight from the SAB brochure.  There are loads of pics to inspire you and get your creative juices flowing.

One of my favourite sets from the Occasions Catalogue is Bird Banter.  I CASEd this card from Brian King.  The ladies got to play with Stampin' Blends - a perfect way of adding colour to the toucan's beak.

Epic Celebrations is another SAB offering and a great set for boy cards.  We took a feminine approach  with this card, colouring is with watercolour pencils.  Doesn't white pencil look great on the Melon Mambo?

One of the fab packaging options in the Occasions Catalogue is these Silver Mini Gable Box - we made this one at Onstage so it was easy to reproduce as a make and take.

And lastly, this black and white cutie... Party Pandas is another SAB offering and a very popular ne at that!   love how this card has the tiniest hint of colour with the red heart.

I love wrapping up lucky door prizes for my ladies.  These were also a great way to showcase some more products.

We had a 'sticky raffle' which meant 10 prizes that were all sticky somehow - snail refill, enamel shapes, double sided tape, envelopes etc.

We raised $120 for Rosie's which is a cause that Marlene, one of the ladies, volunteers for.  She was able to give us a bit of information about her experiences with Rosies.

Thanks so much to everyone who came along.  Thanks for your support of my business.  If you weren't able to come but would like a catalogue or information about my classes, please contact me at or phone me on 07 55 765 469.

Myths and Magic Await!

There were audible squeals at Stampin Up!® Onstage when this stamp set and all its co-ordinating products were revealed.  Who doesn't love a great set for kids??  And who doesn't love a bit of magic?  The suite oozes with sparkle in the washi tape, DSP and Glimmer Paper.

I had a play with our Shimmer White cardstock and Aqua Painters to achieve the watercolor splashes behind.

My mermaid also uses Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes (page 33 of the Occasions catalogue) for her water bubbles.  And as in type the name of that product I have only JUST realised that one sheet is clear and the other is GLITTER!!!  I didn't know there were GLITTER shapes!?  

Wizard deserved watercolouring over his whole cardfront.  Do you recognise that magic dust?  It's from the amazing Star of Light Christmas stamp set.

My niece is a big unicorn fan!  If only this set were around when she was smaller.  Not that that will stop me making her a unicorn card!!

Loving these cards?  The clear mount bundle for this set is $80.  Add the washi tape and you earn a free Sale-a-Bration item.  Yippeee!

There are other fabulous products in the suite which you can view HERE.

If you would like to order online, please use the Host Code A6RJESSE in the shopping basket.

Thanks for stopping by!

Tutti - Frutti

Have you had a chance to check out the new catalogue yet?  One of my favourite suites is Tutti-Frutti.  The way that is spelt suggests you should say Tutty Frutty!

If you have followed my blog for awhile you will know that I love making single sided notecards - handy to have to pop a quick message in the mail.  Using the new Tutti Frutti set, I made these.

The set has bright beautiful papers that will put a smile on your face!

My favourite fruit to stamp is the strawberry.

This set comes with four matching Itty Bitty punches which punch a little inside the stamped lines - no white edges!  Yay!

Click on the catalogue pics in the left side bar to have a leaf through.  If you need a catalogue mailed to you, let me know.

Products can be found in my store by clicking HERE.

If you would like to purchase anything, please email me at or phone 55 765 469.

Thanks for stopping by!
