What a night! Free stuff everywhere …

Wow!  I think we all had a great night last night at my New Catalogue Launch Party.  If you came along, what do you think?

These were the three free gifts I made for everyone who came along …

Paperclips

Aren’t these paper clips cute?  They are so easy to make … you simply need to have the Stampin’ Up! 1″1/4″ and 1″3/8″ punches and an image to stamp in the smaller circle punch.  Then you stick together with Stampin’ Up! Dimensionals with some matching ribbon … and there you have it!

2-4-6-8 Box

I love the new Stampin’ Up! In Color – Groovy Guava!  It really looks stunning with Ballet Blue, don’t you think?  The background stamp is the ever popular Scribble jumbo wheel … these were so easy to make with the jumbo ink cartridge for Ballet Blue.  I saved so much time 🙂

I must also thank my awesome upline, Joanna Wassens, for the design behind this box.  One of the great benefits of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator are the fabulous resources you have access to for inspiration.  And Jo’s creation was my inspiration behind this box.  Thanks Jo!

Punch Candy

Do you like the Punch Candy I’ve made?  I adore our new Stampin’ Up! punches … in particular the scallop circle.  It is the best $30.95 I’ve ever spent!  These can be stuck to any project you are working on, be it a card or a scrapbook page.   And this Punch Candy is made using three of the new Stampin’ Up! In Colors … Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate and Groovy Guava.  The paper cut out with the scallop circle punch is the new textured card stock, too.  Oh, it is lovely!

Watch this space and I’ll post the cards we made at the party too …

Would you like to purchase a new punch?  If you would, you could make your own Punch Candy.  Contact me today!  Remember, you can place an order with my from anywhere in Australia 🙂

Have a great day!

Reminder … stamping night this Friday

dsc03701.jpg

Just a reminder … my FREE card & scrap night is on Friday 28 March 2008 from 8.00pm, for any who are interested in coming along.

Remember … this is an “up to you” night. It is a night to work on your own creations. You need to bring along your own cardstock, adhesives, embellishments etc and any of your latest purchases you haven’t yet used.

You are welcome to also use any of my stamp sets, ink pads or punches, if you like. I will supply a seat, some lollies (perhaps some chocolate Easter eggs if you can stomach the sight of them …) and coffee/tea/cold drinks.

Book some time in your diary for YOU now and come along. Bookings essential (simply so I can organise table space for everyone).

If you are short on ideas, then check out these two cards. I made these cards the other night for my two gorgeous Godsons in Brisbane … Corey turned 14 and Zayd turned 2 … brothers that are a day and 12 years apart! Very special men deserve very special cards 🙂

Hubby’s birthday yesterday

Well, it was Shane’s birthday yesterday and so I managed to get the kids together to make birthday cards for him. Harrison was the only one to miss out (he was only 10 months old yesterday!). So Bella, she is 4 years old in June, chose the balloon stamp and the colours and off she went. I helped her a little with the inside of the card with the alphabet stamps. The card got a little bent as she didn’t want to let go of it until Daddy arrived home. This was the outside of her card (she wanted to stamp both sides) …

and this was the inside of the card …

Josh on the other hand, only 2 years old last week, wasn’t interested in the least. He was too busy driving his matchbox cars around on his new garage. Except when Bella started to actually stamp, THEN he became interested in the ink pads … so he ended up with some ink on his fingers, which we effectively removed from his fingers on the paper… then he decided to kiss the ink pad too! So, again, pressing the paper on his face did a great job removing most of the ink off his face! I added the ‘Celebrate’ stamp. Can you see the lip and chin marks on the card??

Both kids were very impressed with their cards. When Daddy came through the door, he was greeted with two children waving their cards in the air clamoring to give him their cards and wishing him a ‘Happy Birthday!’. Priceless.

And hopefully not so much an anticlimax to the previous two cards, this was my card for my hubby 🙂

Honestly, I cannot share with you how lovely it was to make these cards together with my kids and then see them give the cards to their Dad. Ever since I started making my own cards with Stampin’ Up!, I have been amazed at how special some parts of life have become. Which card do you like best? Leave a comment (or even better, subscribe to receive updates to my blog automatically in your emails) and let me know which you prefer!! I promise to tell my kids …
