An Apple is for eating - yes/no!!

What is this crazy woman saying in her title? An Apple is for eating - of course.  I love them especially the Pink Lady and if you have ever been to New Zealand you will find some of the crispest and juiciest apples.

So why the "No"?  If you are an Apple user you will know that they are not juicy or crisp but you love, love love them, so intuitive and easy to use and mostly safe from virus attacks.

Ok, stop rambling Zena and tell your story!!
Before I was a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator I worked in IT and was very familiar with working on computers. So I am often called upon by my Paper Angels team members to help them set up their blogs or write a few lines of html for them. Last night I was called upon to help Shelagh with a few problems she was having on her blog.

Zena and Shelagh two Paper Angels working on a blog

I am a Windows user and Shelagh is an Apple user, soooo steep learning curve. If I want to delete a letter I hit delete and the letter in front of my cursor is deleted. With the Apple it is the letter behind the cursor. So funny, spent so much time deleting the wrong letters. Then comes the Command button. If I want to copy something I highlight it and press Control C, the Apple is Command C. All sounds simple doesn't it but it made for some interesting mistakes.

Lots of laughter from Liz and Shelagh who are always telling everyone how smart I am with computers. It made them feel better seeing me struggle with the different commands. We finally got a couple of posts sorted out, with lots of note taking and even imparting some html coding for Shelagh to use.

So I think I shall stick with Windows and eat my juicy apples, unless Santa brings me an IPad haha.

Have a great day...

Spritzing technique class

So messy but so much fun. I love spritzing, each card looks so different even though each person makes the same one. We used the Striped Scallop Thinlits Die and the Spritz mask from the Hooray It's Your Day Card Kit.

This card was partly CASED  (copy and share everything) from a good friend who had helped me make some cards for display at our Charity Event. I liked it so much I decided to it needed to be shared with my class.

Rock and Roll

I am a great fan of techniques and last year I did this Rock and Roll technique in my class. I had forgotten how lovely it looks until Stampin' Up! put up this video



I think I may have to have another class on it this year and get others excited about this great little technique.

So proud

I received what some say is Stampin’ Up!’s highest honour, the Heart of Stampin’ Up! Award! 
This award is so special, a demonstrator is nominated by other fellow demonstrators that feel the recipient embodies the spirit of Stampin’ Up!’s Statement of the Heart as they make a difference in people’s lives.

“To love what we do and share what we love, as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments . . . in this we make a difference.”


I am part of a wonderful team of Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrators called The Paper Angels. It is such an appropriate name for our team and I am sure they all deserve a little piece of this award. We hold many charity events throughout the year and are always looking for ways to "Make a difference" in peoples lives.

I feel so proud and very humble and very overwhelmed at receiving this award. It is a beautiful gold necklace with a gold heart and a diamond set in the heart. I am never going to take it off.

After getting over the shock and trying to hold back the tears I managed to pose for a photo with Sarah Douglass, who is CEO of Stampin' Up! until her mother Shelli Gardner comes back from her year away.

Let's start at the very beginning - Day 40

What a wild weekend I have had and in more ways than one. I went to a Stampin' Up! Convention on the Gold Coast and the weather was "wild". We saw heaps of new products to make your imagination run "wild" and a new Catalogue that I am just "wild" about. I also got an award, I can't say "wild" in this sentence I need to say "Ecstatic". I felt very honoured and I will tell you about that in another post.

Today is the last of the card ideas, way back on day one I asked... "Do just want to make cards or are you a scrap booker as well? Luckily the two overlap but of course scrapbooking requires a few more items to start."

Well now is the time to start scrapbooking, I will give you a supply list and some easy layouts over the next few weeks. Card makers don't despair as I said they do overlap, so I will be showing you what you can do with elements on the page to make it into a card.

Here are the last cards for now. I randomly stamped the images and the sentiments over the Whisper White card. I again used up my bits of card left over and made banners. You can't quite see but I even tucked bits of the Red ribbon in there as well.

Notice on these last two I have used both sentiments, the one from Sassy Salutations randomly stamped and the one from Wetlands as the focal sentiment.

Let's start at the very beginning - Day 39

Can a simple one layer card look classy? You bet it can. Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment on a strip of Whisper White card. Stamp randomly all over the strip, cut the end to form a banner. I wrapped ribbon around and tied a bow on the top of this banner. Adhere the banner to the card base with dimensionals and as they say "Bobs your uncle"
