Pinks & Browns

Yes, more pinks and browns. I love these two colours together - strawberry and chocolate....mmmmm!Here are some up close details:

This card uses the Berry Bliss Designer Series paper and new goodies from the Spring Mini Catalogue. The rub-ons are just divine and really good quality. And good quality rub-ons are always so much easier to use in my opinion.

Speaking of the Mini Catalogue, I am holding a Launch Night with some other demonstrators and if you are local to the Central Coast.....you are invited!

Something to share.

This is my new display for my SU cards. Isn't is sweet? It began life as a 'Dorothy the Dinosaur' photo album designed as a handbag. I saw it on the shelf at K-mart and immediately pictured it altered with the delicious Berry Bliss papers from our catalogue. And don't you just love the glittered letters and hat pin?!? And the flowers......sigh! Just love it all really!

Bye for now,

{Stylish Storage}

Check out this little number:
No, it is not a handbag. Although it looks suspiciously like one, doesn't it? Look what it holds:

Yes, all my SU cardstock. How cute is that?

Have a great day!


A quick post tonight to show you some more new creations from the up-coming Spring Mini Catalogue.

This scrapbook page was cased from Making Memories 'Beyond Attachments' book and features my youngest boy when he was a baby:I used the new rub-ons on the tag and they are FABULOUS!

And a couple of cards: I really love the new papers that will be available next month - can't wait to share them all with you!

New Spring Mini Catalogue coming soon.....

....and I am sooooo excited. As a customer last year, I used to get REALLY excited to see the new products that come out in the Stampin' Up Mini Catalogue. THIS YEAR, as a demonstrator, I get to order them FIRST! Yay. My pre-order arrived last week and although it is school holidays (my time is not my own to an even larger extent!) I did manage to create a few things with them. Here they are:
A Thank you card featuring die-cut flowers and Summer Picnic paper. (Psst! Guess what!?!? The new stamp sets are die-cut too. What does that mean? You don't need to cut out the rubber image yourself. YAY!! This is Stampin' Up's treat to you - the customer - for being so great!)And I also created a scrapbook page:I have to admit that I just love the new papers and stamps in the Spring Catalogue. These papers I have used here are so fresh and bright. And the others I have are nice and earthy (will show you some photos of these in the next couple of days when I can steal some more time to myself!).

Contact me at scrapalley@aapt.net.au if you would like a copy of the catalogue on 1st August. That is when you are able to start ordering. In fact, on Friday 1st August I will be holding a Catalogue Launch Night with some other demonstrators to show you the new stamp sets and goodies. If you would like to come along and make some goodies, again email me for details (numbers are limited). If you are on my Customer database, you will be receiving my newsletter in the next couple of days with all the booking details - be sure to keep your eye on your email box for it.

Bye for now,

July Stamping Class

FRIDAY 25th JULY - 7.30pm

This class will be on Stamping Techniques and cover a few simple, yet very effective ways to make your projects really special.

As usual, the class is held at my place (contact me for details if needed) and will be $10 which covers all your supplies and supper. I really hope you can come, it is a great way to learn how to use your products, heaps of fun and a great social night out. Contact me at scrapalley@aapt.net.au to book in or call me on 4362 7209.


Now's the best time........

to join Stampin' Up and do what I do, that is. From now until 15th August if you join the Stampin' Up family you will receive over $560 worth of product for only $299. That is a savings of $25 off the normal joining price. Not only do you receive a whole bundle of product, you get to customise it to suit YOU!!

You can check out all the details (with product pictures) over HERE.

I have loved being a part of Stampin' Up over the last four months. The people I have met, the fun I have had with my uplines team and the products and tools I have had to play with have all been fantastic. If you want to talk to me more about the opportunity, please feel free to contact me on (02) 4362 7209. I am only too happy to answer any questions and tell you all about the Stampin' Up opportunity (over a cup of coffee would be nice, don't you think?)

Can't leave you without out a picture, so here is a card I made with the scraps on my desk after making the little matchbook album below.
