What happened to February?

Uh, I seem to have skipped a month.  And now there are only ten days left of March.  Which means ten days left of Sale A Bration!

If you've left your run a little late to order during SAB, you are in luck, because Stampin' Up!  just released new products to earn for free for every $90 you spend until the 31st March. Head on over to my Online Store to place your order!

I blame the fact that my day job has been really busy lately, and my children need to be driven to the four corners of the globe all weekend.  Still, I need to get better at this time management thing!

New Favourite Product

I have a new favourite product from the Occasions Mini Catalogue.


Watercolour pencils!  Stampin' Up!  had them years ago, but with the various colour refreshes that have occurred, the colours just weren't right anymore.  But they are back!  In true, SU! colours.

I had a chance to play with these at the OnStage event in November, and discovered they work beautifully with either a Blender Pen or the Aquapainter.  Sweet!  

When I was making these samples, my 12 year old daughter had a play with them as well.  She didn't want to give them back.
1.  Scribble the pencils on a piece of Watercolour Paper; 2.  Apply water with an Aquapainter, allow to dry. 3.  Use your lovely watercolour background by stamping a big sentiment in Versamark and white embossing powder and heat set with a heat gun.  4.  Assemble onto a card base.

Make a fun rainbow!  The pencils blend so easilly.
Here are some examples from the new Mini Catalogue:






These pencils are so much fun!

Quick and Simple

I went to a local retirement home and gave some of the lovely ladies there a Christmas Card class.  We made two cards, which were fairly simple, but involved some techniques that were new to some of the ladies.  I think they all enjoyed themselves; I even had my oldest customer - a 100 year old lady!  She did a great job and her cards looked lovely.
This card was CASE'd  (Copy and Share Everything) from the Holiday Mini Catalogue.  It was the first time the ladies had seen the Big Shot in action!  It was also the first time they had used our Blender Pens.  Excuse the smudged bit!

Here was the second card - some ladies used the Santa stamp instead of the reindeer.

This one used the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and matching punch.
I'm sure that children would enjoy making these cards, as much as my sweet old ladies did!

Your Christmas Gift Problems Solved.

You know how it is.  Busy day, just enough time to rush home after work, get changed, and get to the dinner party/Christmas lunch/restaurant.  You grab a bottle of wine to give the host as you leave (or on the way) but it looks so.....naked.  And the brown paper bag it came in isn't very classy.
I'm here to save the day!
Here are some handy tags I've made which were designed to go over the neck of a bottle of wine.  
The wine bottles are dressed up to party with a pretty tag made with the Here's to Cheers bundle.
Make a few of these fancy looking tags ahead of time, with some twine or ribbon, and some of the 6" x 17" Gusseted Cellophane Bags and put them somewhere handy so you can grab them on your way out the door.   
See?  The Gusseted Cellophane bag is a perfect fit for a wine bottle.

The gusted bags are also food safe - perfect for packaging your Christmas baking!




Problem solved - you're welcome!
