Fresh Vintage

Here's a gorgeous card using one of the Stamp sets available to earn for FREE from Sale-a-Bration (SAB).  This card also features the new ribbon Organdy ribbon which is very feminine and gorgeous in real life.  The designer paper is slightly distressed and very elegant. It would be one of my all time favourites (I know I say that a lot, but this one is truly gorgeous). 

Stamp Set: Fresh Vintage (SAB)
Card Stock: Soft Suede, Whisper White
Designer Paper: Everyday Enchantment (SAB)
Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade, Poppy Parade
Accessories: Everyday Enchantment Ribbon and Brad Pack (SAB), Lace Ribbon Border Punch, Modern Label Punch. 

Just a reminder that the SAB products aren't available to purchase.  For every $120 you spend during SAB, you can choose something for FREE from the four stamp sets, the designer paper and the colourful ribbon and brad pack.

Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration is here!

If you haven't experienced Sale-a-Bration (SAB) before, here's what all the fuss is about... Stampin' Up rewards you with FREE goodies for every $120 you spend - no limits. These products are not available to purchase and are only available until 31 March. There are four stamp sets to choose from, as well as adorable accessories such as printed brads, ribbon and gorgeous designer series paper. Warning: they are all extremely fabulous.
Anyone hosting a $700 workshop during this time earns a stamp set for FREE out of either of the current catalogues. If you'd like to get a group of girlfriends together one afternoon or evening, do think about hosting a FREE home workshop. As the hostess, you stand to earn FREE merchandise and an Ideas Book and Catalogue (or ink pad if you already have an IB & C), dependent on sales. During Sale-a-Bration, it is a great time to host, as everyone is tempted by receiving something for FREE.

And, if you'd ever thought of becoming a demonstrator - now is the time to join!!  Whether it's as a hobbyist (wanting a discount to fund your addiction) to someone looking for a small flexible business doing and sharing something you love, now is the time, as you get as a bonus stamp set from the current catalogue valued up to $95.95 to add to the already discounted starter kit. During Sale-a-Bration, the starter kit is the special price of $289 (usually $339) and contains over $685 of stamping goodies (that's with the FREE stamp set) and it's really versatile.

Happy New Year!

Hello everyone and welcome to a New Year!!  I know, I know.... it's already 10 January but for those of you who follow my blog, you will know that I didn't have any Internet for quite a while before Christmas and then I went away.  I ended up staying away a bit longer than planned and arrived back late Saturday night to a miserable and wet Auckland. 

How was your Christmas and New Year celebration?  I had a wonderful time with my daughters and family down in Palmerston North. I also managed to catch up with a few school friends (one I hadn't seen for over 25 years) and ex Air Force friends too, which was great fun.  Don't you love it when you can pick up where you left off, no matter how much time has lapsed since seeing each other? 

I hope you have lots of happy memories of 2011 and although it has been a difficult one for many, I hope you have a positive outlook on what's to come in 2012. 

The mystery surrounding my Internet problems have been rectified {doing the happy dance here} and it was a data entry error that caused me all that grief.  Someone who lives in my area had changed their provider and when the new provider entered their details they entered one wrong digit which made it my phone number, instead of theirs.  Because all of their other details were correct the changeover process went ahead.  I can't believe that something so simple was so time consuming and inconvenient.  Anyway we're back now, so I'm a happy chappy once again :) 

With all the craziness that has been going on in our little world - the one thing that has been lacking is stamping. And, needless to say I've missed it and hope to get back into it real soon. 

The card I'm featuring here is one I made before Christmas.  I loved the simplicity of it and I've cased it from my friend Sally Williams.  The only stamp used, is the Happy Birthday message from Curly Cute. 

Stamp set: Curly Cute
Card Stock: Whisper White, Island Indigo, Lime Limeade, Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral
Ink: Pool Party
Accessories: In Colour Designer Printed Brads, Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch, Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon

Enjoy your evening and hopefully I'll be back again soon.
