Product of the week - Simply Wonderful Stamp Set

The Simply Wonderful Stamp Set is the product of the Week.
Sometimes it's easier to show someone how wonderful they are versus just telling them. The sentiments in the Simply Wonderful Stamp Set-phrases like "Thanks so very much" and "You're the best", offer many opportunities to show your appreciation, love, admiration, and general regard for anyone in your life.

Also as an added bonus, the stamp set coordinates with the Decorative Label and Extra-Large Oval Punches, just to name a few! This beautiful artwork samples below have been provided by USA Demonstrator Mary Fish and Stampin' Up!

Weekly deals 25th February - 4th March

Here we are again another lot of Weekly Deals to peruse. I love Wednesdays mornings and checking out what I need/want. Is there anything here that you need/want?

I know I am tempted with the Whisper White satin ribbon as it can be dyed to match the card colour by using either the Ink Refills or the new Blendabilities. I'm also keen on the Melon Mambo cotton ribbon as the Cotton ribbon is a new product and I quite like it. I have also been tempted in the past to get the Sequins Assortment but have held off. Well now it is very tempting.

So looks like I may be putting in an order. If you would like any of these products and want to share the postage then give me a call or email me. Of course you can always purchase any of these great products below from my Online Store at any time or call me and let me know what you need.

Earning the A Happy Thing Stamp Set during Sale-A-Bration is the most happy thing! This decidedly cheerful stamp set uses line art imagery that's perfect for colouring. Pull out your Blendabilities or your Aqua Painters and let your inner artist go to work!

The result? Gorgeous artwork that is deceptively easy.

Check out some lovely samples of what can be done. The artwork below was created by by Moira McIlory and Sarah Klass

Come in spinner...

 I was asked a few weeks ago to put on a class and they wanted to make some moving cards eg sliders, easel, and spinners. Well I am pretty good at coming up with techniques but this really did stretch the brain. The Easel was fine but I had to look on Pinterest to see what a slider and a spinner card looked like and this is what I came up with for my spinner.


We started at 10am and finally finished about 3pm. It was such a great day but PHEW! it was very intense. I think if we do anything like that again we might stick to one technique. Everyone loved what they made and here are some of them for you to ooh and aah over. They really looked fabulous.

Simple layout

Sometimes we need to remember that keeping things simple is fine. We all like fancy, intricate cards but I wanted to keep it simple for my Bluecare classes. I did this design for another class as well and they were really excited at how simple could look so good.

Make a big birthday splash with the Big Day Stamp Set. Create professional-looking cards for special birthday recipients through the magic of a stamp and our easy-to-use Stampin' Blendabilities Markers.

Tawney Frogmouth in my garden

This post is nothing to do with cards or scrapbooking but it will be scrapbooked at some stage. This morning I was thrilled to see a Tawney Frogmouth right by my back door. He didn't seem at all worried at this crazy female excitedly taking photos of him. He was gracious enough to look straight at the camera.

Along with this Tawney we have Kookaburras, Lorikeets, Galahs, Blue Tongue Lizards to name a few. How wonderful to be able to have nature so close.

Project Life - the easy way to scrapbook!

We all love the cards and other projects that we can create using Stampin' Up! products, and Scrapbookers are not forgotten, in fact with Project Life I do believe there will be more scrappin going on in the crafter's household.

With the partnership of Bekky Higgins and Stampin’ Up! back in April of last year, we now have some wonderful products and we’ve been thrilled with these Project Life card collection and embellishments resulting from this partnership.

I am excited to finally have the ability to share our products and solution-based system with my friends and customers. I now have a way to scrapbook my memories in a quick, simple way that falls in line with the Stampin’ Up! products I have loved and used for a few years now.

Stampin’ Up! has created many videos specific to their Project Life by Stampin’ Up! line of products and I think you will love what you see on You Tube. This is just one of them....
