Bon Voyage Fundraiser Fun!

On Friday night, a few members of the Creative Stampers team got together and held a fantastic fundraiser for the NSW Cancer Council. Wow! It was an exciting night … I heard lots of comments like “I’ve never sat down and made 10 cards in one night!” and “Isn’t it nice to sit down and make a card that’s pre-cut” … and everyone there had a smile!!


The biggest smiles came from our lucky door prize winners and raffle prize winners. And you can see why! Below is the main raffle prize … and (above) you can see the other raffle prizes …


Below were the lucky door prizes … and you can see the main lucky door prize in front of the basket (it had a Simply Sent kit in it and other goodies). I was stoked that one of my customers (and friends! Hi Jenne!) won the main lucky door prize!!


Below are a couple of photos with everyone hard at work. They had 10 cards to make and everyone had finished by 10pm … what an accomplishment! Well done to everyone who participated!


I must say, it was special to work with the great ladies who make up the Creative Stampers … Jo Wassens being our fearless leader!! The night went off without a hiccup … a testament also to Merryl Blacker’s excellent organising!


And here are some of the cards everyone made, using retiring stamp sets (all unavailable after 31 March 2009 or earlier if sold out) and, often, the cards also used retiring In Colors as well:


The above card used the retiring stamp set, Simple Somethings, and the retiring In Color Purely Pomegranate including the Purely Pomegranate Double-stitched ribbon.


The flower card used the retiring stamp set, Snowflake Spot, as well as the retiring In Colors … Purely Pomegranate and River Rock.


The above card used the retiring stamp set, Carte Postale, including the Leaves a la carte jumbo wheel … and the retiring In Color, Groovy Guava, Moss Gingham ribbon and Metallic eyelets.


The above card uses the retiring stamp sets All Through the Year and It’s Your Birthday … and the retiring In Color Wild Wasabi.


The above card used the retiring stamp set, Petal Prints, and the retiring In Colors, Blue Bayou and Soft Sky.


This cute little card (above and below) used the retiring stamp sets Big Pieces and Little Pieces.


A big thank you to everyone who participated on the night … we raised over $1,100 for the NSW Cancer Council. This week it has been fifteen years since I lost my best-ever Nan at the much-too-early age of 65 … to lung cancer (yes, a smoker). So this was a night very close to my heart! Thank you!!

Thanks for looking 🙂

  1. Hi Rachel,

    Had a great time on Friday, made some fabulous cards and met some really lovely people. Seems like it was a great success as well on the fundraising front 🙂

    As soon as I got home I opened the kit from the lucky door prize, and am already using it… first card from it was for my brother in law for his birthday.

  2. I had a great night!!! The Kits were great although I needed a little help with a couple but found there was always someone to help. Price was great. My Stampin Up Rep – Angela brought me along.
    I have since been to another in July and just been invited to another one in September and loving it.
    Thanks heaps for the info, kits, ideas and all the help.
    Helen Rokotuku
