Well it would have to be the best time ever and nearly the worst. I had such a great time at the convention learning heaps of new ideas, meeting lots and lots of wonderfully friendly ladies and getting to know our team members much more personally. We had a team get together on the first afternoon in our room and enjoyed swapping cards and 3D items with each other. A perfect way to get new ideas.
Then we had a fire alarm on the first night 1.30 am. We had no idea what was happening and some of us thought to grab warmer clothes but others just ran. It was a false alarm but very few of us were amused. By the time we got back to our rooms and settled down just dropping off to sleep at 3.30 am the alarm went off again and we were out on the streets of Sydney again but this time well prepared.
I had so much fun meeting women we admire on the internet. I had the opportunity to have my picture taken with Shelli (the CEO and cofounder of the company).
We also had the privilege of sitting with Shelli and her husband Sterling for Dinner on the Awards Night. Very enjoyable.
The incentive trip destination for next year was announced and all the deserving demonstrators will be off to Fiji. I was picked out of the audience along with other unsuspecting guests to dance on stage with the Fijians. Lots of fun and laughs for everyone. Won't be living that down for a while.
Well it went very quickly but we were very excited to learn that it will be in Melbourne next Year and will run for three days not two. Bring on Melbourne.

Cottage Garden Gift Set

This is the card gift set we did in our stamping class just recently. It uses the gorgeous new Designer Series Paper "Cottage Wall" and the new stamp set "Cottage Garden". I based the colours around those used in the Cottage Wall papers, Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence, Pale Plum and Old Olive. There was also a few other new items like the Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Ribbon and the Sizzlits 4Pack Dies "Lots of Tags" There was a little bit of cutting out of flowers and butterflies but some ladies think that is quite therapeutic. I don't mind as long as you have the right scissors and they are SHARP. All the sentiments used were from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments set in the current Autumn mini catalogue.
This card is probably my favourite
And this was the lovely little box I designed for them all to fit in along with their envelopes. It has a flat over the the front and I used some stick on Magnetic Strip as a fastener.
This would be lovely as a gift to someone with blank cards inside or once you have given all the cards away individually you can use the box as a gift box for something little.
Happy Stamping Everyone.

My Mum's Mother's Day Card

Hello again. As promised I've got for you today the card I made my own mum for Mother's Day. I've used Very Vanilla and Regal Rose colours with the Fifth Avenue Floral and Teeny Tiny Sentiments Stamp Sets. The background is made using the new Manhattan Flower Textured Impressions Folder which runs through your Big Shot.
To make the flower, I versamarked the rose image onto Very Vanilla card and then heat embossed white embossing powder till it becomes shiny. Then I used regal rose ink with the water pen and slowly build up colour. I coloured two images and then cut out one to layer up and make the rose look more lifelike. Voila.
Talk to you again soon.

Cottage Garden Class Sneak Peek

Here is a sneak peek at part of the Cottage Garden Class for next week. Isn't it gorgeous. I really like these colour combos of Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry (our newest In Colour), Orchid Opulence and Pale Plum. The stamp set works beautifully with the Cottage Wall Designer Series Papers which are available now in our Autumn Winter Mini Catalogue. I know its a bit mean to only show you some of the picture but there are some ladies out there who don't like to see what they are about to make in my classes. I promise I will post a full picture of the whole class after next weekend. If you would like to come the class is on Friday at 7pm 14/5/10 and again on Saturday 1pm 15/5/10. Cost is $15.00 and includes all supplies. Just bring your craft scissors for some cutting out of flowers. Look forward to seeing you. Tina

Mother's Day

A very happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there and I hope you have a wonderful relaxing and peaceful one.

Today I have made a card for my husband's Mum. She loves Ballet Blue and I threw in a bit of Certainly Celery as well. This is the Vintage Vogue set which is quickly becoming my favourite. I have also added a half pearl from the Pretties Kit to finish it off. Certainly Celery ribbon is gathered across some sticky strip to give the ruffled effect. I'll post soon the card I made for my mum. I haven't had a chance to take a photo yet.

All the best for tomorrow.

I'm Back

It has been too too long between posts. My only excuse is that I've been very busy with life in general and getting my business up and going as well as juggling the family. I'm off to my first stampin up convention in two weeks to Sydney and I just can't wait. I've made about 130 swaps and looking forward to swapping and meeting lots of friends in the process. I have today worked out how to link this blog with my Stampin' Up Blog so from now on you will get the same information on both sites (another reason why I haven't blogged much).
We have the new Autumn Winter Catalogue out now and here are some samples I have come up with.
In a few days you can go to the project section of my Stampin' Up Website and check out these cards in more detail.
Well I hope I have my self sorted out now and I hope to post much more regularly for you in the future.
Happy Stamping everyone
