Aim for Alaska Blog Hop - Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek

Aim for Alaska Blog Hop - Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek

Today I am participating in another blog hop - this one is for a training group I am involved in called Aim For Alaska. This group is run by Kylie Bertucci and was set up to help fellow demonstrators by sharing tips and tricks about their business. Stampin Up offers an incentive trip each year that we can earn  - and next year's trip is to Alaska, hence the name of the group and the blog hop! 

Whilst I am not going to qualify for the trip just yet (but I'm working hard towards it!), this group has provided me with a wealth of knowledge to help myself, my team and my customers. You can sign up for the next program starting in October here. I highly recommend it if you are looking at taking your Stampin' Up! business to the next level and beyond. 

Now moving onto today's card - the theme of the blog is to use new product from the soon-to-be-released 2017-2018 annual catalogue. I chose to showcase a beautiful set called Lovely Friends (page 173). I made a batch of these cards for a swap I was involved in recently and loved it so much I made an extra card. The set also comes in a bundle with a coordinating thinlits dies set called Lovely Laurel which I used to cut out the larger flower.

I wanted to showcase the gorgeous Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper which shows off our new 2017-2019 In Colours. These papers have a lovely watercolour washed look to them. But which colour to choose? That was the hardest bit for me! I ended up choosing Tranquil Tide. I think you would call it a transient colour - sometimes it looks green but sometimes it looks more blue. Either way it's a lovely colour to work with. Then I added a little pop of colour in another two new colours, Powder Pink and Berry Burst. The inside has a beautiful sentiment - I love the words and the font!

I chose to cut off a portion of the front of the card so I could show off two pieces of the designer paper (but that made it hard to take a good photo!). The sentiment I chose is a reasonable size so I let that be the focal point of the card. I added the flowers for colour and to soften the Tranquil Tide a little. The scalloped square behind the image is in Pool Party.

Make sure you click through to the next blog and see what everyone else has been creating.

There's a lot happening this month to make way for the new catalogue but there is less than 2 weeks left of May! It's time to get those last minute orders in before they disappear forever!

The retirement list is still full of bargains, remember these items are only while stocks last and won't be available after 31st May.

The clearance rack has been updated and there are some fantastic bargains to be had - but it's only while stocks last

Random Act of Kindness cards

A few months ago I joined a Facebook group started up by Kylie Bertucci - a fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator here in Australia.

Its called Random Act of Kindness or RAK for short. The idea behind it is that we send handmade cards to a random person on the list to brighten their day and share our love of card making. You need to send one card per month minimum but it's so addictive most of us are sending many more! 

The group is international and it has been so much fun sending and receiving cards and making new friends along the way.

The cards seem to have a knack of arriving at just the right time when someone needs a pick-me-up - I love it!

Here are some of the cards I have received, I just love them and proudly have them on display in my craft room.

Does this sound like something you would love to do? You don't need to be a Demonstrator to join but you do need to use Stampin' Up! products. Check out all the details here -

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there. And special wishes to those who are no longer with us.

We had to change our lunch plans so I am hosting lunch here today. So I thought I would share a quick picture of the table. The plants are kangaroo paws that my daughter's school were selling as a mothers day fundraiser so I bought extra for my Mum and Sister. I think it looks simple but cute.


The little table favour boxes are decorated with the Oh So Succulent paper and the flower is made with a brand new Daisy punch. And did you see the bling in the centre of the flowers? Yes that's another new item coming Faceted Gems.... yummy!  

Enjoy your day whatever you get up to.

Hello and welcome

Hello Friends, so glad you could join me on my new venture. What do you think of my new blog?
As you can see I have switched my blog platform to Blogger. I wanted to create more of a 'brand' so I enlisted the help of the ever-so-gorgeous Louise Sharp - a fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and a blogger guru! She did an amazing job of designing my blog header and graphics. And she's a pretty awesome card maker too :)

Please feel free to have a look around my new the site. I'm hoping to add some of my old blog content so you can look back on it if you need to.
