Woo Hoo!!

It's nearly New Years Day and in the Stampin' Up world that means HEAPS of excitement.  It's SALE-A-BRATION time!!  What's that I hear some of you ask?  It is your chance to gain FREE stamp sets.  Woo Hoo!!  Here are the details:

Customers -- Receive a free Sale-A-Bration product for every $100 purchase. {simply email or phone me if you would like to place an order}

 -- Receive a free Sale-A-Bration stamp set with a $600 or more workshop, in addition to the normal hostess benefits. {workshops are so much fun, would love to have one with you}

 -- Choose any retail stamp set (a value up to $79.95) from the current catalogue when signing up during the promotion.  {Ooo, would love to have you join my team}

So now is the best time to book a workshop and buy up those items on your wish list.  And you will bag yourself the choice of four gorgeous stamp sets only available for the next two months.

And don't forget that the Summer Mini Catalogue runs for the same period.  Mmmm, scallop edge punches and beautiful papers.    Here is a little sample for you:

Stamp set used is Eastern Blooms.  Isn't it divine?  And that pumpkin pie paper, that is from the range called Bali Breeze.  Just like a holiday isn't it?  

Email me at scrapalley@aapt.net.au if you would like to book a workshop during the next couple of exciting months.  I can't wait to get back into it for 2009.  See you soon,

Happy Birthday......

to me.  Yep, I had a birthday this week.  Another year older.  I had a lovely day with my Mum shopping and then spent the evening at the local Christmas Carols with the family. 

Wanna know the best present I got?????  (Besides all the gorgeous gifts from friends and family!)  I am busting to share it with you all.  The day before my birthday I received a magazine in the mailbox.  I don't have any subscriptions at the moment and knew that I had a couple of cards coming out in a magazine soon.  So I figured that it must be the Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercrafts mag with one of my cards in it.......................well........................I ripped open the packaging to find.......................that my card is on the cover!!!!! 
That's it...the scalloped circle card at the top.  I know it's not SU stuff but I wanted to share my exciting birthday present with you.  "I'm a Cover Girl"  hee hee.  Of course I encourage you all to go out and get yourself a copy, it has some great ideas in there (and of course more of my creations!).

I have been busy making many Christmas presents this year, most of them for other people to give.  Any excuse to create is a good excuse to me.  But I seem to be quite organised this year and feeling really relaxed.  Hope you are too.  I really love this time of year and the kids are finished school today so it's time to sleep in, slouch around in PJ's and hopefully get some more crafting done.  

I will post again soon with some new creations from the Summer Mini Catalogue.  If you haven't seen it yet, go and check it out.  There is some great stuff in there. 

Bye for now,

Christmas Scallops

I just love the SU Circle Scallop Punch.  I seem to be using it on EVERYTHING this Christmas.  And the large Star Punch is handy too.  Oh, and see that scalloped edge along the top!!  That's new from the Summer Mini Cataglogue.
I made these lollie bags for my girlfriends, we are going out to dinner tonight and I always like to give a little something to them.  

Have a great weekend!
