The Annual Stampin’ Up! Convention that was recently held in Sydney was FANTASTIC.  I loved it all and learned so much.  I got the chance to meet Shelli, Stampin’ Up! Co-Founder and CEO.

shelliShe is a genuine amazing lady and I feel blessed to be a part of a company lead by her values.  Her husband Sterling was even there packing our purchases from Momento Mall!  No airs and graces that is for sure.

We had our two days of presentations, the chance to use some new stamp sets and win some more, and then the awards dinner.  Thanks to you and your support I walked across the stage to recieve a milestone award for my sales (and another two free Stamp Sets that will not be available until September).

These are the gorgeous table centrepieces that lit the room for our dinner:


The next Convention is going to be held in Melbourne. I am now looking forward to that.

I had a lovely time being with my Stampin’ Up! mates, lots more photos were taken and I’ll upload them here when they become available.

I am so inspired to do even better this year and look forward to sharing more Stampin’ time with you.

Happy Stampin’


Yes, don’t fall over….I have done some Scrapbooking!

I have a scrapbooking class coming up so needed to get organised in giving them a sample project.lily fox  As you can see it similar layout to the one on page 29 Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue but I decided to change the colours a bit (actually that is not really true…I went to make this layout exactly the same but had a mini panic attack when I realised that I didn’t have any 12×12 Kraft so I had improvise).

Here is the girl version.

Stamp Sets: Fox and Friends, Defining Alphabet, Short & Sweet.

Cardstock: Mellow Moss, Very Vanilla, Pink Pirouette.

Inks: Mellow Moss, Pink Pirouette, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip.

Accessories: Corner Rounder Punch (yes, we do have one, it was accidently left off the catalogue). Dimensionals, Stamp-a-majic, Silver brads and 1/16 hole punch.

The boy version:

zane foxEverything as above except add some Bashful Blue cardstock and ink, and also some Brocade Blue ink for the little whale.

You could do lots more journalling on that blank block, I was time poor so just added the little “love you” stamp.





I wanted to make a more neutral page that did not require photos so quickly whipped up this one:

neutral boxThose blank boxes could be filled up with any journalling that you wanted, such as Birth details.  They are also a place to put stamped sentiments or other words using the defining alphabet stamps such as “love” etc.

The coloured block is So Saffron.  The little fox is Pale Plum and all other colours as listed above.

This is a super easy page, the blocks I have used are 5 cm x 3 inches (sorry about the two different types of measurement!)

Happy Scrapbooking and Stampin’

Chicky Babe


beluga chick pageThis 12×12 inch Scrapbooking layout showcases the devotion my three daughters have for my son.  This is what he would wake up to each morning.  Now he is an almost 2 year old who is often the one to wake them up in the morning…what goes around, comes around 🙂

2010 is the year for scrapbooking for me and many of my friends.  One of my many New Years Goals/Resolutions is to scrapbook more this year!

Happy Stampin’
