New goodies!

I just LOVE getting a new BBB! (Big brown box) Even though I ordered it, I am still so excited to see my new stamp sets, inks and ribbons! It's like a surprise gift I give myself! *giggle* 

I also love thinking up fun ways to use my sets-Watch out for some cards using these sets and accessories in the coming weeks! 
I'm most excited about the crazy about you and hello thinlit bundle-( 15% off if you buy them together! I love bundles!!!) and the petal potpourri stamp and punch set bundle. Here are some cards I quickly whipped up (literally- the first card I made in about 10 minutes!) 

-This uses the crazy about you stamp set, the petal potourri punch, and the hello you thinlit dies. (Plus dsp) easy peasy! 

This card uses the hostess set (only $19 clear mount if you host a Stampin up workshop!!) a time to celebrate, and the hello you thinlit dies with the stamped sentiment from the crazy for you set. I coloured the cute crazy bird in with blendabilities (coastal cabana and night of navy) I used retired dsp, and ribbon. Cute! 
Have a fantastic day people's! 

I hope you can squeeze for creative therapy into your day!!

In this together

I played with "in this together" set the other day, and I thought I'd use one of the other stamps in the set. 
Originally I was just going to "shade" the outside of one of the ladies in the stamp, but..... I just kept going! Lol. 
The cloud I simply made with a sm circle punch! Simple! 

I hope you are able squeeze in some creative therapy in your day!!

Hello everyone! With all the fun going on with our new catalog recently, my craft area has been getting more and more disorganised..... Well, no more!!

Occasions catalog 2015

Penny out in our garden.

Its just Gorgeous today in Tassie!!
 (Sadly a Tasmanian summer IS NOT 3 months. Its more like 6 weeks..... sad but true.)
The weather inspired me today. I wanted to make something that was as pretty as today- and whats prettier that pink?
In the New Occasions catalog a stamp set was released, called "from the garden" Beautiful on its own, you will agree!
From the garden
Handpicked framelit dies

But with its partner dies, is just super cute!! and the dies are so versatile! if you choose to buy them at the same time, you will receive a saving of 15%- because Stampin Up has bundled the stamps and dies together. Got to love a bargain!! if you want to take a closer look just click on the above pictures and it will take you to my store!

As soon as i saw the set, I knew I was going to make this card. The little garden labels reminded me of parts of a fan.

I also used the new "painted petals" set out of the occasions catalog, and a computer generated sentiment. (a bit cheesy, but I thought, pretty cute too!) I will be posting a tutorial very soon teaching you how to make this card- so stay tuned!!
I hope you all get to have a little creative therapy in your day today too!

I know I've said a few times now how much I love this time of year, saleabration time is a time of year where we are rewarded for just loving Stampin up Products! And it's nice to be rewarded for just loving a product isn't it? 
One of the fabulous rewards for purchasing Stampin up products between January and March is the new Saleabration designer series paper. Another option is the coordinating ribbon and button set. 
I just love these colours so much (calypso coral, coastal cabana, and hello honey.) They are just so pretty together. It inspired me to make some jewlery- 

And a key chain...

What do you think?
Would you like to have a go at making them? 
I'm offering a free key chain kit, or either earring or necklace kit to anyone who joins my team, OR anyone who books an online workshop (on face book) during Saleabration! (australian residents only)

In the near future I'll be selling the kits as well.... If you would like more info on the kits for purchase, please feel free to email me!
