Merry Christmas

Christmas is upon us and the close of another year, 
The time of writing lists to do, to buy, to make, to share
But let us not forget the true meaning of this day,
Spending time with those we love, enriching our life's way. 
From my family to yours, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and
may the holiday season be full of joy, hope, peace and cheer.

Stampin' Up! Going Global Sneak Peek

The first stamp set I'm going to play with from the new Occasions Catalog is the Going Global stamp set.  Because I travel so much with my job - {which I love, love, love}, it's the one I adore the most and I can't wait to get my hands on it. Actually any stamp, designer paper or embellishment that resembles traveling, I just have to have it! 

This is another make 'n take that my friend Sally made for me at the OnStage event last month using the Going Global set. It comes with a coordinating embossing folder and designer paper. Great for masculine projects too :-)

Have a great day!!

Going Global and Sneak Peek

Stampin’ Up! has announced some big changes to their systems recently, to make the company much more global.  As many of you know, over the last 8 years we've had a South Pacific training convention in Australia, but now we're having global conventions called OnStage.  The entire Stampin’ Up! world meets on the same day to enjoy training and live streaming as well as local training and demonstrations. 

Our inaugural OnStage was in November and unfortunately, although I registered to attend the event, I was delayed overseas and so missed it.  However, because I had paid to attend, I still received all the gorgeous goodies that those who attended received including the new Occasions catalogue, that goes live in January.  Each attendee was also given a 6 month planner, along with a lots of other gifts and prizes. 

Here is one {of the four} make 'n takes that my friend and fellow demonstrator Sally made for me on the day. It uses products from the new Occasions catalogue which is being released on 5 January. I bet you thought that there was designer series paper (DSP) but it's been stamped using the fabulous new set Botanical Blooms and made to look like DSP.  The main feature flower and leaf have been cut out using coordinating framelits.  Doesn't it look fabulous?!

I’d love to have you sitting with me in April at the next big OnStage Event {assuming that I don't get delayed overseas again :-)}. If you're someone who wants up to the minute training, pre-ordering opportunities and so much more, check out my page to Join my TeamIf you have anymore queries, don't hesitate to either email me or call me on 021 260 6680 

Enjoy your weekend!!

The Occasions Catalogue is coming in January along with Sale-a-Bration and they're both just lovely. I'm so excited about whats to come however, I'm not sure my Bank Account is!

Big apologies for being MIA (missing in action) for the last few months. I've been extremely busy at work and have been flitting all over the world (I love my job!) I also managed to get away for a holiday in October with my two daughters and granddaughter. We went to Hawaii and had a fabulous time. The temperature was around 28- 30° so lovely enough to don the swimsuit and venture to the beach. The water was beautiful and warm and I could seriously live there, given the chance. And, talk about shop till you drop! My daughters put me and all the ladies I work with, to shame! Unfortunately, all good things come to an end and eight days was not long enough {sigh}. And, as you know, we had a visit by our future King and his wife Camilla. I was involved with that and there is so much preparation behind the scenes, so it all added to the crazy busy time I've had, of late. 

So, there you have it - I hope you can forgive me and I'll see you again soon!

Best Thoughts

This is the swap I made for our last team meeting (yep, I know - it was ages ago). I've cased it from the wonderfully talented Sandi MacIver who is from Oregon. The card uses some of the new designer series paper for the background from the neutrals paper stack. Don't you love the script paper?!  That was the draw card for me and I think it really makes the card pop. The stamped image is from the hostess set Best Thoughts which I had fun colouring and fount it very therapeutic :-) 

Stamp: Best Thoughts (hostess set)
Card: Whisper White, Cucumber Crush, Bermuda Bay
Ink: Black Staz On, Cucumber Crush, Bermuda Bay
Designer Paper: Neutral Paper Stack
Tools: Aqua Painter, Dazzling Details

Have a happy week everyone!

Awesomely Artistic

I had a fantastic class last night with a fantastic group of ladies. This is one of the cards that we made using the stamp set Awesomely Artistic (page 125 in the AC) from the new cattie. I would have to say that this set along with Butterfly Basics are my two faves. You can't see from the photo, but there is dazzling details on the flowers and dragonfly which makes them stand out and sparkle. I've cased this card from Margaret Raburn who is a very talented demonstrator from the United States. 

I'm repeating the class on Sunday 2 August at 2pm and Tuesday 4 August at 7.30pm. There are still have spaces available if you want to come along. Email me or call me on 416 7476/021 260 6680.

Stamp: Awesomely Artistic, Watercolor Wings (message)
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Perfect Plum 
CardChocolate Chip, Perfect Plum and Very Vanilla

Happy Birthday Bridgette!

It is my youngest daughter Bridgette's 19th birthday today! I don't know where the years have gone?! Bridgette is also the mother of my only grandchild Kyla Rose. She is an amazing mummy and I couldn't be more proud of her. 

Here's the card that I made for her birthday:

There's a little pop up feature too...

Stamp set: Painted Petals (OC), Papillon Potpourri, Memorable Moments
Card: Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Blushing Bride
InkRich Razzleberry, Blushing Bride, Wild Wasabi, Melon Mambo
Designer Paper: Painted Petals
Accessories: Dazzling Details
Tools: Ovals Collection Framelits, Big Shot, Butterfly punch, 

I'm heading away today so we celebrated all day on Saturday and had a wonderful time together. It started with a boxfit class {phew} at 9am, followed by a delicious brunch. We then browsed some shops and then about mid afternoon, had a very relaxing massage. So much so, that we both fell asleep. Even if you don't fall asleep while having a massage, you always look like you do, because while you lie face down, your face is squashed into that little hole.... We had a good laugh and hoped neither of us had dribbled while sleeping because we may have dribbled onto the masseuse's feet! We partook in a bit more shopping and then we had a high tea, overlooking the beautiful Auckland waterfront. We finished off by going to the Ed Sheeran concert last night, at the Vector Arena - it was a perfect ending to a perfect day.  

Bridgette, I hope that your birthday is the beginning of a wonderful year - filled with family, friends, love and laughter. Love you to the moon and back xxx

Guy Greetings

It seems that I never seem to have a masculine card when I need it. I usually like to design the card with the male in mind but on this occasion, I haven't done that. This is one of the cards we made at my Masculine card class over the weekend. It's clean and simple, but I think it's a winner. I didn't really take to the stamp set Guy Greetings when I first laid eyes on it. But, after a period of time (a few days at most) - I really began to see it's potential. Especially since it has quite a few greetings as well. I found this card on Pinterest and cased it from Sandy Mathis. Nothing too hard about it at all. 

Stamp set: Guy Greetings (OC)
Card: Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Very Vanilla
Designer Paper: Newsprint Designer Series Paper
Ink: Black Staz On
Accessories: 2" Circle Punch

I'm repeating this class on Wednesday evening and there are still spaces available if you want to come along. Email me to register. 

Enjoy the rest of your short week.

Happy Easter

Wishing you all a wonderful Easter with fun, friends, family and lots of chocolate! 

These cute little boxes were made from the Curvy Keepsakes box die which has been carried over into the Occasions catalogue. I've cased the idea from Zoe Tant who is a demonstrator from the UK. There are loads of ideas using this little box on the Internet. You can make something for every occasion. 

Cardstock: Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Curvy Keepsake Box die, Googly Eyes (retired), Big Shot, Blossom Punch (for feet).

I had to share some ca-ute photos of my gorgeous 7 month old granddaughter Kyla and her first Easter. She came for a sleepover last night and what a fun time we had :-) 

Don't you love the bottom left photo?! She likes to show off her two new teeth. 

Enjoy the rest of your long weekend.
