Contact Details

Hi there! As you can see I'm a very neglectful blogger. Life in general keeps me busy but please know that while I neglect my blog, I'm putting my time and energy into my family, friends, workshops and classes. I'm still a very active Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and can be reached by email on for any orders, workshop bookings, or just to say hi! I always love hearing from you! Happy Stamping!

Help Haiti

So far, there have been more than 7500 sets sold worldwide in support of this cause. This money will be used to provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need.

Hi everyone! Again I need to apoligse for my lack of blogging. I put my time and energy into my workshops and classes, friendships and family, therefore my blogging gets put on the back burner most of the time. Sorry! If ever you want to know whats happening with classes or any SU specials, then please feel free to email me at any time. I love hearing from you!

SAS - As we all know, Christmas is just around the corner. Christmas themed workshops are in full swing at the moment. I've come up with a Stamp a Stack (SAS) that will help you along with those preparations for the silly season. I'm holding this class on 2 nights, Thursday October 22nd and Friday October 23rd. In this class you'll make 10 cards, 5 each of the 2 designs you see in the picture on the right. The cost is $20, all materials are provided and both classes start at 7:30 pm. Please email or call me soon to book your place at my craft table. Come along and get in the mood for Christmas and make some cards!

Technique Class, SAS and the Spring Mini

Baby its cold outside! Cold days are a good excuse to stay inside and keep warm and do the things you Stamping! With the help of your comfortable pair of trackies, ugh boots and something hot to drink, I want to assist you in enjoying this winter. So I'm offering you the chance to join in 2 upcoming classes I have organised (Sorry - I cannot provide the trackies and ughs, but can do the hot drink and a home made cookie or 2). The first is a technique class that I hold each month. Due to several people being sick this week, I have a few places left for this class which will be held THIS THURSDAY NIGHT, July 30th at 7:30pm. July's technique is one of my favourites - Stamping with Markers. I love that you can buy the markers individually now, (in all the colour families except the In Colours), so you'll see me using them more and more in classes and workshops. They are very affordable at only $5.75 each. So, if you've been interested in the markers and want to try them out, then this class would be a fabulous way to do so! On Thursday you'll make 1- 6"x6" scrapbook page, 1 regular sized card and 1 gift card. The cost is $17 and all materials are provided. See the picture on the left for a sneak peak. Please call or email me ASAP if you'd like to participate in this class.

The second class is a Stamp-a-Stack (SAS) in which you make 10 cards, 5 each of 2 designs. See picture on the left to see what you'll make. The cost is $20 which covers all materials used in the class, as well as envelopes (which are stampable to match your card). If you're free on Thursday August 6th at 7:30pm, and would like to make 10 cards to add to your stash, then please call or email me to book your place at my craft table. I love to have you over!

The Spring Mini Catalogue is almost here!! Personally I think its one of the best minis we've had so far! Its FULL of gorgeous stamp sets, a new scallop oval punch, more pretty patterened paper, White Staz On and Staz On Remover, more Rub-Ons and of course it holds lots of new ideas. The Spring Mini runs from August 1st till November 30th. Drop me an email if you'd like me to put one of these in the mail to you. As soon as August 1st arrives, I'll add a link for you to view it online.
Looking ahead: Christmas themed Stamp a Stacks will be back in preparation for that crazy time of year. I will offer them from my home but if this is something you'd like to do with your craft group, then let me know and we can arrange something for you and your friends.

Next month's technique will be Spotlighing!

I'm Back!

Surprise! Its me and I'm back to blogging. So sorry for not being in touch for the past couple of months. When life gets crazy then something's got to give - and that will usually end up being the blog and newsletters. Of course you can always email me if you want to know whats going on the in world of Stampin'Up!, which many of you did. Thank you.

So what have I been doing that has made my life crazy you ask? Well! That new catalogue I posted about in April was welcomed and received by all of you with open arms and tons of workshops and classes. It was lots of fun creating new workshops with all the fun goodies that the new catalogue held. The classes I began to offer filled within hours so I've been holding more classes for private craft groups. Another thing, I've had 2 trips away from Canberra: first to the USA in June and then to Adelaide during the July school holidays....both for a much needed break. But I'm back and starting to look toward Christmas already. The Stamp-a-Stacks with a Christmas theme will begin again soon. The technique classes have been a big success and will continue on each month. My newsletter will be out in the next couple of days. There are a couple of spots left for my technique class this Thursday night - but will let you know in the newsletter.

Here are some random pictures of things I've been making:

A gift voucher before the In Colours changed, and a basket woven from some SU textured cardstock and filled with chocolate eggs at easter. Yum!

The cards I made for the Stampin'Up! Convention in May. I made 30 of these!!

Another owl card.....I'm loving the "Owl Together Now" set!
