Changes to Stamp a Stack and Christmas in July and One Sheet Wonder class

Yep you read it right, my next class is all of the above. Before we get started we will create our card background using the One Sheet Wonder technique. This will give us a complete A4 decorated sheet of card stock. We will then cut up the card for our Stamp a Stack. We will be making 8 cards and because so many have asked when I am doing Christmas cards, so I decided to make a Christmas in July event.

Yes I know July will be over by the time we have the classes, I am going to pretend it is July!!! I'm good at pretending, how about you?

A special card for a sister turning 50

At my shaker card class today I was asked if I had anything in my goodies box to add a 50 to one of the cards we were doing as they wanted a special card for a sister turning 50.
Um let me see... I rummaged through Thinlits looking for birthday greetings, nothing jumped out at me. Then I found the Big Shot Framelits Large Numbers and the brain starts working. What about we cut out the 50 in a circle and then add the lace from the Big Shot Thinlits Bloomin' Heart behind it. Yes that could work, so away we went. The rest of the card was put together the same as everyone elses but the 50 made this extra special for her sister.

Not bad for throwing something together during a class, phew. Thanks Michelle for keeping me on my toes.

Shaker cards

The shaker card class was very popular and everone loved the different ways you can make one. I am doing it again tomorrow so if you would like to attend please let me know.

The first card was made using a cellophane envelope, it looked so stunning.

Then we used the new Emerald Envy card stock and made this starburst card. I really loved this one.

Finally a black and gold one. It looks so much better in the flesh. A very elegant card.

So if you would like to do these cards then there is one more class left and that is tomorrow.

I think I'm hooked

Everyone had been excited about the Foxy Friends bundle. I on the other hand kept thinking that at least that was one bundle that didn't rock my boat. I love punch art but not so much Foxes. Well I have held firm until now.

Oh dear, this is just the cutest wedding card created from the Foxy Friends bundle by a very talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in Germany by the name of Nicole K├╝nzig.

Pop on over to her website and see why I may be hooked. What about you, are you hooked? I'll be ordering mine soon, so if you want it too let me know.

Awww I can't bear it, just sooooo cute!!

Shopping Online with Zena

This post is for the lovely people that shop online with me and have wondered why they never hear back from me after they have received their order.
Please read and answer these 3 questions.

  • Do you shop online with me? Yes 
  • Did you place an order in the last few months? Yes 
  • Have you ever received a thank you email or catalogue from me? No 
If you answered No to the 3rd question, there is a reason for that.

When I receive your order notification from Stampin' Up!, it comes through as anonymous. What does that mean?

It means I'm unable to see any information about you, there is no way to email my thanks to you as there is no contact details given to me at all. No name, no email address, no postal address, nothing at all. Which is the reason why you've never heard from me.

If this is what you have experienced, then, I am sorry and thank you for your order. I'd love to send you a thank you email and a card. But without your contact information, I'm unable to do that. 

However there is good news it can be fixed! You can easily update your online Stampin' Up! account. Here's how:

Click on this Online shop link 
Sign in (upper left corner)
Click "My Account" (upper right corner)
Click "My Demonstrator" Check box "allow my demonstrator to contact me"
Save changes

After you have completed these steps, be sure to email me at so I can be in touch!

New friends, new hairdresser, what more could a girl want?

A few years ago I attended a Stampin' Up! convention in Melbourne. I shared a room with another demonstrator Gaye Schrader and 2 of her friends, Barbara and Glenda. Now a few years on and I consider her and the other 2 ladies very good friends. In fact I try and catch up with them every time I am in their lovely little town of Cooroy.

Well today I visited Glenda as she is the only one I trust to give me the best hair cut. Fancy that, I had to go to Melbourne to a Stampin' Up! convention to find the best hairdresser I have ever had. She is not a demonstrator but loves coming to our events and makes some lovely projects. After my haircut today she gave me a "next appointment" card that made me squeal with delight. She has stamped her own appointment cards using a design that I had demonstrated in a class. It was a masking technique and one of my favourites.

So Stampin' Up! does it again. New friends, new hairdresser, what more could one girl want?
