Hello, *tap* *tap* this thing on?

It has been so long since I've updated my blog that I am sure there is no one out there who remembers me, LOL!

To tell the truth, I was so wiped out after WCMD that I took a mental health break away from my craft lair to recharge a bit.

Fortunately I've found my mojo again, and I have been back to the craft lair creating lovely Christmas Cards. (which I'll show you soon) I've also been working on swaps for our Regional conference here in Brisbane at the end of the month, but as they will use NEW products from the Summer Mini (starts 1 December) I can't show them to you yet.

Also I've been playing with my Stampin' Up! Website (click on the picture on the LEFT over there) and trying new ways of communicating with my customers.  I'm a bit of a Luddite, so it takes me a while to get the hang of computer things!

November Specials and Promotions - I've just emailed my customers an e-card with those, and if you would like to join my mailing list, you can easily do so with the click of a mouse on the Stampin' Up! Website.  Alternatively, you can email me on louisesutton@internode.on.net and I'll put you on the list.
Here are the current promotions:



And the Recruitment Promotion is still running:




Classes - I'm holding a Beginner Class this Sunday (2pm-4pm) for anyone (Brisbane) who has thought about making their own cards but doesn't know where to start.  If you are on my mailing list but haven't made it to any of my other classes yet because you think they sound too difficult, this is the class for you!  Let me know if you'd like to attend a Beginner Class but can't make it on Sunday, I'm sure we can come up with another time that will suit.

For the next four Sundays after that, I'm running Christmas Card Classes.

The cost for the Beginner Class is $10, you don't need to bring anything at all.  The Christmas Card Classes will be $15, bring your own basic kit (adhesives, bone folder if you have it, paper snips if you have them, etc).

Bring on the photos!

Here is a lovely little box I made recently (it's a UStamp project) with gift tags and cards inside:



 
I used Riding Hood Red cardstock, RHR DSP, a stamp from the Curly Label Punch Bundle (which is featured in this month's specials), the lovely wide RHR and Very Vanilla ribbon (about to go for good when the Spring Mini finishes).  The cards inside use A Flower for All Seasons (fun to colour!) and the tags use Spotlight on Christmas.


I gave this pack away as a Lucky Door Prize at WCMD.  I hope they liked it!  Another door prize I made was this sweet bundle of notecards made with A Flower For All Seasons.

Watercolour paper really makes a difference when colouring your images with your aquapainter.

I shall have to show you my recent projects a little later as I need to dash now to get my daughter to the dentist!

Of course we remember you, Louise! Glad to hear that you took a break to recharge since we don't want you to be worn out!

Your Christmas cards (in the post above) are great - love your use of the Hodgepodge and the colour scheme.
