Happy Birthday Timothy!!

It's my nephew's birthday today, and here is the card I made for him. It's called a free-standing pop-up card-and it lays flat for mailing. This is the first one I've made, and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to put together-I'll definitely add it to my list of cool, easy cards. Happy Birthday Tim!

Batman Punchy Card

Well I just had to show you this cool punchy that I designed. Well of course the Batman logo itself is not my design-but I figured out how to make a punchy Batman logo. I thought it turned out well. And for those of you with a keen eye, you'll have to figure out which punches I made it with!! I thought there was very likely some Batman fans out there who might appreciate this for a party invite or on card.

Cheep Talk Waterfall card

I've been trying out some rather fandangled cards lately-you wouldn't believe how many nifty card ideas there are out there. I was given a waterfall card from Katie at Christmas time (I think)-and I have finally taken the time to make one myself-so here's my creation using the "Cheep Talk" stamp set from Stampin' Up! I have also included a photo of a little journal I covered using S'U! Designer Series Papers.

Stampin' Up! Convention photo

I was lucky enough to be persuaded to go to the Stampin' Up! convention last weekend (by my hubby) As you know, I thoroughly enjoyed myself and learned a lot of new ideas. During the weekend, a professional photograper was roaming around taking photos. Here is a photo of me, and some of my fellow stamping friends-which just happened to feature on Shelli's personal blog. So I feel a bit chuffed to have a photo of our group posted there. Shelli is the CEO and co-founder of Stampin' Up! I won't bother adding the photo here-you can see it on the link above (if you're keen)

Some recent projects for your inspiraton...

I have been making a variety of different things lately. There is nothing I love to make more than cute boxes, and gifty things. The problem with posting these gift ideas on a blog-is that some of my friends who read my blog might actually get a sneek-peak before they have actually received it! If you have secured a spot in my stamp club-you might even get to make a few of these projects yourself!

Stampin' Up! Demostrator opportunity...

As I have already mentioned in a previous post, Stampin' Up! is having (for limited time) a Scrapbooking Starter kit-which is available for $150!! Super bargain. This enables you to get started as a demonstrator-and offers you all the discounts and benefits of a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, as well as an endless list of ideas, and things to create. One thing that I particularly appreciated when joining was the ease at which you can get started...there was no hairy accounting required, or large amounts of paperwork. With those worries aside, I could just enjoy the endless ideas for gifts/cards etc.
The kit contains all the business supplies needed to get started. You can join up for any reason-as a hobby-ist, something to supplement the household income, or to make a full-time job out of it... Now is a fantastic time to join-especially if you already love Stampin' Up! products and want to be able to purchase them at a discount-or even earn a little money! You can join for as little or as long as you like! I have thoroughly enjoyed the friendships I have made, and the creative outlet this has been for me!I know this picture is small, and you can't read the details-but if you are interested in joining our team, or want to know more, leave me a comment-and I will be happy to talk with you about it. You can see it online here too:

Stampin' Up! Convention 2009...

This is my swap-which hasn't shown up too well due to my poor photo-taking skills. The black roses are embossed (which is hard to see)

This gorgeous little bag was so simple-and is filled with 4 cute little love-note-sized cards-super cute!

Well this year, Stampin' Up!'s annual convention was held in Canberra (Yay) After much deliberating about whether or not to go-it was actually my hubby who encouraged me to go. I must say, I was very greatful for the opportunity as he has been away overseas for most of the school holidays-and I was in need of a pleasant reprieve. I immensely enjoyed myself (who wouldn't)-and it was great to go together with a bunch of friends (who are demonstrators of course). My poor head is exploding with great new ideas-and new techniques. A whole 2 days of fun can actually be exhausting-would you believe it! So, be prepared, I have some new ideas in my little old head...Here are a few photos of the Make-and-Take projects we did at convention. I haven't yet completed the scrapbook page, but I'll show it to you when I have added the photos. Also, I have a photo there of the swap I made for convention (green glittery rose/black card). I was also a wee bit chuffed to see 2 of my cards on the display board at convention-I had almost forgotten about sending them in (a few months ago) and there they were...
