Happy shopping,





Another Beachy Little Christmas card for you. This was one of the earlier cards I made with this set.

I have watercoloured the images with the pencils.

I will be honest, while I am happy with the colouring, it is just missing something.  There is no pizzazz! No WOW! I think the sentiment is lost. While I did layer the sentiment on Silver Glimmer Paper, it is still not happening. Maybe I need to redo it? Maybe even a little sponging around the edges? What are your thoughts?

I thought I would show you this card anyway.

Thanks for stopping by.




A friend of mine turned 50 this week and we went to her birthday celebrations last night.  Of course I wanted to make a card but sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming with what stamps to use or what colours.  In our team group this week we have had a challenge to use a stamp set we haven’t used before.  I could choose from a few different ones here.  I have a number still uninked!! I went with the Blooms and Wishes set and used the Eclipse technique.

The colours used are Sweet Sugarplum, Fresh Fig, Flirty Flamingo, Pear Pizzazz and Lemon Lime Twist.  I picked those colours from a Colour combination off Pinterest.  I added a little bling with the Rhinestones.

Hope your weekend is going great.  Today I have been at a Christmas market all day so it was a busy one but always great talking to people about stamping right. 🙂




PLEASE NOTE: The reservation window has now closed for this round.  Be ready early on December 6th (Sydney AUST) time to submit your reservation then.

I know SO MANY  people who have been waiting for Stampin’ Up! to bring out a Stamp Positioner.  I can say the day has finally arrived!  Over the last 18 months I have been working on a team with Stampin’ Up! to help develop this tool and I can say that this great piece of equipment will help you in your stamping.   Whether you need to overstamp an image as it hasn’t come out well, or you have multiple of the same image to stamp, or just to line up 2 or 3 step stamped images easily.  This Stamparatus is what you will need.

The Stamparatus will be available early next year but to help keep up with supplies Stampin’ Up! are offering a reservation order.  So you reserve it now and pay for it when they arrive in Australia. There are 3 reservation periods.  The first Reservation period begins TODAY in which delivery will be early February.  Then there will be one in December and another in January with later delivery dates. These will then be available in the new Annual Catalogue in June 2018.

But I know since you have been waiting for this you will want to reserve your own NOW right??  This is how you can reserve one Today.

Reservation for the Stamparatus begins TODAY through my store ->  HERE. There is only a limited number each round so you need to be quick!  You will need to add your credit card details but payment won’t be made until the Stamparatus arrives.  Then this will be processed as normal through my store.  Cost will be $85.  (maybe you will have some Christmas money to spend???).

Now go right now to reserve it as I have already heard the numbers are low.

Back to some projects with the beautiful Designer Series Paper that Stampin’ Up carry.  I wanted to share this fun Card In A Box style card using the cute Birthday Memories paper.   This was created by my lovely friend Leonie N and she allowed me to share it with you.

Isn’t this just so cute??? 🙂  There is no stamping involved.  All these cute images are cut from the paper.  (No colouring too!). I love this paper as you get one side with really cute images and then the other side is some fun patterns.  It really is a great pack.

The Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper is one of the packs available for the special promotion this month.  Buy 3 packs and get one Free!!

Just to remind you of the papers that are available during this promotion.

You can order the Birthday Memories Paper or any other products in my store -> HERE now.  Please use the Host Code this week  BRE396PY
