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.
Here was the second card - some ladies used the Santa stamp instead of the reindeer.
I'm sure that children would enjoy making these cards, as much as my sweet old ladies did! Product List

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.   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.   

Problem solved - you're welcome!

I'm back!

Hello lovelies!  I'm sorry I've been slack at keeping up the blog lately - just been busy with real-life stuff.  I've also just spent the past three days at a Stampin' Up! On Stage Live event here in Brisbane with some of the ladies on my team.  So much fun! I'm not allowed to show any of the cool projects made with gorgeous new products from the 2017 Sale a Bration and Occasions Catalogue yet, so I'll be good.  I can show you some photos of people having a great time, like these: We each got a copy of the next Sale a Bration and Occasions Catalogues (I love them!  Shocker, I know, LOL), got to play with new products, and watched presentations showing inspiring ways to use  the new products, and some different techniques we might not have tried.  In addition we had helpful training on how to run our businesses and be a better Demonstrator.   The best part is always catching up with other Demonstrators from all over Australia/New Zealand, and even some from the…

Holiday Mini Class - what you missed.

I had some lovely ladies over recently to play with some of the new products in the new Holiday mini Catalogue.  We had a lot of fun getting our Christmas on! The first card was a fairly simple one using the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set and the matching Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.  I am going to be using this set a lot.  So fun, and such cute images!  My photo is a little blurry unfortunately, but you can see  that I used a simple colour palette of Crumb Cake  cardstock and Chocolate Chip ink, except for Rudolph's nose, which was coloured using a Real Red marker.  The Baker's Twine is new too - you probably can't tell from this photo, but the red is shiny.

We also made a simple mini treat holder (mine held a fun sized box of Smarties, but almost any mini treat would do) which is easy to whip up from a spare scrap of DSP.  Cut it 2 inches wide, and long enough to wrap around your treat.  Using the Tag Topper Punch, make a matching hole at each end of the paper, threa…
