Nothing to do with cards

This post is nothing to do with cards or papercraft. The only way it is connected is that I was cleaning out a drawer trying to find my camera charger. I needed to recharge my camera to take a photo of my last card class.

I get a great satisfaction after a drawer is sorted and I can find everything at a glance, what about you? Anyway I found a very old recipe that I thought I would share. It is a fruit cake recipe and yes everyone has one of these BUT I find I would use this one all the time when I baked. Notice I do say "When I used to bake" Card making seems to take up too much of my time for baking now which isn't a bad thing as full cake tins = empty cake tins = weight gain.

Enough rambling here is the recipe, leave me a comment if you make it.

Sin Free Fruit Cake
Sin free fruit cake with zena kennedy independent stampin up demonstrator Ingredients
500 grams Mixed dried fruit
1 400gram can Mango in Natural Juice (I use Admiral brand)
1½ cups Self Raising flour
1½ teaspoons mixed spice
2 eggs
1/2 cup water
Combine fruit, water,chopped mango with juice in a saucepan. Boil for 1 minute. Allow to cool.
Add beaten eggs, fold in flour gently, bi-carb and spice. Pour into a lined loaf tin. Bake 1 hour at 160℃. Leave stand in oven for 10 minutes. Cool in tin. Enjoy!

Sprinkles of Life - love it

One of the things that people may not know about is that Stampin'Up! donate to Ronald McDonald Charities all over the world. They launched a  program way back in 2003 called the Making a Difference program which Stampin' Up! partnered with Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). Each year, they design an exclusive stamp set to promote the partnership with RMHC, and donate a portion of the proceeds from the each sale of that set. To date, more than $95,000 has been donated from RMHC stamp set sales.

We as demonstrators are also encouraged to volunteer our time teaching local Ronald McDonald House guests the creative art of rubber stamping through the Making a Difference program. We also create cards at training events and other times throughout the year which are donated to Ronald McDonald Houses. Right now I have a wonderful demonstrator friend in Darwin, Debbie Blake that posted me down 3 boxes of cards for the houses that I teach at. Those staying at the Houses then use the cards to keep in touch with loved ones while they are away from home.

You can help us make a difference. Purchase this year's set, Sprinkles of Life, and they'll donate $3 to Ronald McDonald House Charities for each set purchased. To help get your creative juices flowing, here are some samples using this set.

This is the stamp set below it is on the inside back cover of the Annual catalogue. If you would like to purchase it or any other products you can email me or shop directly online.

Daily video - Baker’s Box Thinlits Dies

Make a treat extra sweet by presenting it in a box you make yourself. Cut handles, windows, and accents to dress up the base box, then fill it with goodies. With Thinlits dies and the Big Shot, it’s easy to make multiple boxes in minutes. Watch to see how.

Join the fun

Join the fun with zena kennedy independent stampin up demonstrator

Very few things get our hearts racing as much as a new catalogue. The hours of thumbing through each page, carefully picking your favourite products, contemplating which projects to make, and finding that perfect product is enough to send even the calmest crafter right over the edge!

Well, what if I told you that during the month of June, I can help you get some of the stamp sets on your wish list for FREE? That’s right! Stampin' Up! are giving you an opportunity to get new stamp sets for FREE from 2 June–30 June. You’ll get two stamp sets of your choice from the Annual Catalogue in your Starter Kit. Here are the full details on joining.

Not sure what joining will mean for you?

Well there’s no one single answer. Let me tell you why I joined and what I have been doing as a demonstrator. I used Stampin' Up! for several years and found that I couldn't get any better products that coordinated together, so I decided when I retired I needed to join Stampin' Up! to get my beautiful products cheaper. As a demonstrator I get 20% off all Stampin' Up! products.
I only wanted to join for this discount BUT my friends and family had different ideas. I soon started doing classes and going to workshops, making new friends and becoming so busy. I love my private time in the morning before the day really begins. I get up at 5.30am and go down into my studio and play till the household starts moving about upstairs. I am so lucky to love what I do and do what I love.

The team that I belong to is called the Paper Angels and they are the best team. We share, we laugh and we even cry, apart from the crafty side this is the best part of joining. I have just become an Upline to two wonderful ladies and both have joined for different reasons. One wants to make a business out of it and the other, like me (in the beginning smile!!) has only joined as a hobby demonstrator.

So there you are a little insight into what it is like to be a demonstrator. Make it work your way, hobby, business or something in between like me. I have not regretted a day and absolutely love every minute of my time spent crafting or writing about it here on my blog. I love my little team and if you would like to be the newest member I would welcome you. So why not join up now and grab 2 extra free stamp sets of your choice in your starter kit.

A great kit worth $235 for  $169 with products of your choice, AND 2 extra stamp sets. What could be better?

 My Joining Information

Mini Catalogue Launch

The Catalogue Launch for this Sunday has been cancelled, as I have only had one RSVP. I still managed a mini launch though as there were several people that came to a class last Monday that wanted to see the new catalogue. I took along lots of goodie bags and prizes and we went through the new catalogue and played with the products.

These are the cards we made.

The first card highlights the beautiful Bohemian Designer Series Paper, the middle one is made using the new gorgeous stamp set Awesomely Artisitic, and the cute tag is made using the stamp set Sprinkles of Life, this set helps raise funds for Ronald McDonald charities. $3.00 goes to RMHC with each stamp set sold.

Daily video - Fast Fuse

Stampin' Up! have brought out a new adhesive called Fast Fuse.
Fast Fuse is a super-strong adhesive that bonds instantly and neatly. Safe for memory preservation projects. When I first tried it I got myself into a bit of a gooey mess as it is very sticky and there is definitely a right and wrong way of using this adhesive.

Check out the video on how to use Fast Fuse. There is definitely a learning curve on applying it so it doesn't make a mess. Once you get the hang of "the tick" you will love it as I do.
