Thanks Kim for the lovely card you made for Olivia. Kim used the Sweet Treat cups to hold a pretty necklace and the bracelet fitted around the edge perfectly. The jewellery colours matched the Kaleidoscope DSP and Tempting Turquoise card stock beautifully.
Olivia's birthday was a big success, thanks to all her friends who came to Dino's playland for the party. I made these cute little thank you notes for her guests using the Scallop notes in the Summer mini, along with Oval All stamp set and Bella Bleu DSP. They have matching envelopes and are a really easy way of making a stack of cards for any occasion.

Papercraft Expo RNA showgrounds

This weekend I was fortunate enough to be part of the team of Paper Angels Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who had a stand at the Papercraft Expo in Brisbane. Liz, Bec, Ursula, Kate and myself worked hard for two weeks to put it all together, although the bulk of the work was done by Liz who had the stand set up in her family/dining room to see how it would look, and talked tirelessly on the phone to the organisers. (And we won't forget the leg work that Leonie put in, but couldn't make it in the end for family reasons) The stand looked fabulous, with a make and take table at one end, and a tasteful display at the other, surrounded by beautiful creations on the walls. We had show specials (contact me for more details of these, we are offering them to you now that the show is over) and a fantastic door prize of over $300 in products as well as incentives for workshop bookings. It was tiring, and I was only there for two days, so the others must be superhuman. Now I know how quickly an ink pad can be put back together (thanks Bec), and had a lesson in how to make sales seem easy from Kate... Thanks to everyone who came and supported us at our first big commercial show, I really hope to be involved with the next one as it was such good fun. We really do have the most wonderful team Demonstrators, the Creative Memories lady even commented on how much fun we were having and how we all get on so well.

Olivia's birthday

Elisa came over on Saturday night to make some cards with me, and this is the fabulous card she made for Olivia's 4th birthday on Thursday. It is made using Stampin' Up! punches; Wide and medium ovals, 1" and 3/4" circles, Boho Blossoms triple flower, Scallop circle. The greeting is from the "On your birthday" set. Thanks Elisa she will really love it!

craft class

This week at craft class we made two projects, a card with envelope (thanks Leonie for reminding me of this project!) and a vellum box as seen on Splitcoast stampers and slightly amended. I decided to use a monochromatic colour scheme, and each person chose their favourite colour, I loved the Tempting Turquoise it is such a fresh colour. I used my brand new Whimsical Words stamp set (waited sooooo long for this!) and the Oval All set, along with the Retro Remix wheel. Thanks to everyone who came, see you on the 16th February. If you would like to come, please let me know as bookings are essential.
