Sale-a-bration goodies

Sale-a-bration is a wonderful event at Stampin' Up!. For every $100 you spend you get something for free. The more you spend the more you get for free. How cool is that??

Starting mid January and running until March, you will want to start saving up so you can get lots of these wonderful freebies. I know I want them ALL.......lol

I have been playing with some of the freebies you can get. The card below features all of these that are free :- Vine Street embossing folder, Sycamore Street ribbon, and the Bloomin' Marvelous Stamp Set.

If you want to see what else you can get for free starting mid January, just let me know and I will send you a brochure.

Happy Stampin'

Xmas Pudding Anyone ???

I am so pleased with some little edible decorations I have made for the Christmas Lunch table.

I can not take credit for the idea as I have seen them posted on a couple of different sites. But this is my little take on the idea. And they are so much fun to make. I hope my guests like them.

The ones with the red plates underneath are for Christmas Day, and the others are for the family BBQ on boxing day.

It's the little touches like this that make Christmas special. If you would like to know how to make them for next Christmas, why not get some friends together in the new year and we can make them together in a workshop.

Scrapping with SU

The other night I was over at a friends house on a 'play date' which is what my husband calls a craft evening with my friends...lol, and I decided to do a scrapbook page using my Stampin' Up! supplies.

I must say I am very pleased with the page. I must note though there a few non SU things on this layout - the raw chipboard heading and the brads. And this is only because I am still building up my SU supplies.

And I am extremely happy with the way the heading turned out. I would love to show you in a workshop just how easy it is to achieve this look from raw chipboard.

The Daydream Medallions stamp set and matching Floral Frames Framelits make it so easy to create embellishments that match perfectly to your layout.

I hope you liked this layout.

I finally made something.

It seems like an eternity ago that I got my first Stampin' Up! delivery. And I have had another one since the first.
 But I seemed to lack the guts really to dive in and make something. I know why, because I hate cutting into pretty papers...lol. But what's the good haveing all this stuff if I am not going to use it. Plus I have a neice who is haveing a birthday this weekend. So what better an excuse to get off my butt and make her a card with all the gorgeous Stampin' Up! goodies that I have.
I absolutely love the Papillon Potpourri stamps and knew as soon as I saw them, I needed to own them. So naturally they were the first stamps I turned to when I needed to make this card.
I hope you like it.

How slack am I ????

Very slack is the answer...lol

I can't beleive I have had my starter pack for 10 days already and haven't created anything to show you. I have created some things but they haven't been totally SU. So can't show them here.

I think I need to rectify this problem and create something this week to show off some of the fabulous Stampin' Up! goodies I have.

So stay tuned for something awesome....

It's here!

Well I didn't have to wait till Monday for my delivery.

Thank you to Australia Post for delivering my box today.

I was so surprised to look out my front door and see it sitting there. Hooray. Then I opened it and was so excited.

So many ideas running through my mind.  Must go and create as soon as I can. Hopefully I will have something wonderful to show you tomorrow.

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day.

Just a tad disappointed !

I was hoping to be able to play over the weekend with all the wonderful goodies coming my way.

But alas Australia Post has let me down and my box is still somewhere in transit. I guess delivery times get longer the closer we get to Christmas. But I still feel disappointed.

But now I eagerly await Monday morning when surely my delivery has to arrive. Surely it can't take 4 days to get from one side of Sydney to the other..lol

And you will all be the first to know when it arrives, I am sure you will hear my squel from wherever you are in Australia !

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day.

So excited !!

Oh my, I have finally done it ! smiley
I have joined the exciting world of Stampin' Up. I have only been umming and arring for around 12 months. Can't rush these things...lol And what's that old saying - "They say that good things take time".
To say I am excited is very much an under statement.
I can't wait to get my first order and start creating. My fingers are just itching to get going.
Thanks for visiting.
Have a lovely day.
