September is nearly over!!

Hi there peeps!!
Sorry it has been a while since I last visited you, but I have been flat out with workshops with some lovely ladies, and getting organised for my launch, which is this coming Saturday!!

First up, if you were ever interested in signing up to be a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, now is the time! The special price of $169 is finishing tomorrow!! So don't delay, this special price won't be repeated again any time soon! I would love to have you join my team!!

So what will you be doing while hubby watches the AFL Grand Final on Saturday??? Wouldn't you rather be wandering around our Bizzy Mums Open Day, and checking out some local party plan businesses run by mums?? Come and join us at the Kenwick Community Centre, on the corner of Kenwick Road and Brixton Ave in Kenwick, from 2 - 5 pm! Entry is free and there is plenty of parking either at the Community Centre or the adjacent Library. And since I last spoke to you, we have had two more businesses join our little group - you will see the latest in Nutrimetics products from a lovely lady named Megan, and why not have some adult indulgence with Pure Romance? Kylie (yep, great name eh? hehe) would love to show you the less 'risque' products on the day, and the more 'adult' products at a Pure Romance Party! You will also see a range of products from Miche Bags, Tupperware, Lorraine Lee Linen, Intimo, Partylite and of course Stampin' Up!
Door prizes will be drawn throughout the afternoon, and come see me at my table for another doorprize form where you could win fabulous Stampin' Up! product! I will be offering free make and takes, using brand-new items from the new 2011/2012 Idea Book and Catalogue, during the afternoon - come and make a cool card and take it home with you! Catalogues will be available for purchase on the day, but unfortunately we don't have permits to sell the retired stock I mentioned in a previous post.......but we will be sure to organise that for future events!
Bring a friend(s) with you and come and have a cuppa as you relax while flicking through the catalogues of the businesses on display. There will be street signage in case you miss the turnoff - look for the bright pink balloons and the Bizzy Mums signs on the side of the road out the front of the Community Centre! I really hope you come down and say hi, I would love to catch up with you!
Hope to see you on Saturday!
Don't forget, the joining special finishes at the end of September - if you want to join the fun of being a part of Stampin' Up!, don't delay, do it today!!!!

Back with more of the Petal Cone Die

I am busy preparing for my launch on October 1, and have been madly making up samples of all of our new bigshot dies. I found a gorgeous jewellery holder yesterday at one of my favourite home stores, and it will let me hang quite a few samples of the Petal Cone Die - I can't wait to have them all made and on display!
But before that I have my regular Friday Morning Coffee with some of my favourite friends, one of whom I can say was the one who got me into papercrafting many years ago! I sat down and made them a Petal Cone each and filled them with yummy chocolates. I made these ones all the same, but have several others in different colours for the launch - I am just in love with Marina Mist and had to use it! So here they are!

So what do you think - aren't they the cutest?? I think I will be making many more of these, they come together so quickly, and you can emboss them with any of our embossing folders, or leave them plain - I embossed these ones with our Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder for a little bit of extra texture. How cute would these look in pink and white for a baby shower, or black and orange for Halloween? And don't forget red and green or red and white for your Christmas table!
If you would like to see how easy these are to make, let me know - if you are local to me, I would love to pop over and show you how!
Anyway, off to make some more samples for the launch....
Have a great day, and remember to take some time to papercraft!

Petal Cone Die and Stamp Club

Have you found some time to go through our new Idea Book and Catalogue yet? If not, you really must, it is choc full of fabulous products, and some great inspiration!!
I wanted to share with you one of my favs from the new catalogue - it's called the Petal Cone Die and I made a few samples for my stamp club ladies - we had our meeting on Friday night and although one of our group couldn't make it due to work commitments, we still had a great night and made some gorgeous stuff! Our first project was this gorgeous red and white cone - I got inspiration for this project from the talented Delys Cram. I think it would be just perfect for your Christmas table, filled with yummy treats :

Our next project was this cute little take-out box, again made with the petal cone die, just trimmed differently, with a belly band, and those gorgeous flowers cut from the blossom party die :

Our last project for the night was this cute little gift card holder, that I decorated with the new Letters to Santa DSP and the new Jolly Bingo Bits stamp set. I got the design from the ever-talented Gretchen Barron :

Now who wouldn't like to come along to a stamp club and have a few laughs and learn how to make gorgeous projects just like this?If you love the look of these projects, place an order of $50 or more this month, and I will send you the details on how to make these yourself, for free!

I have a pic of some of the other things I made as samples for my ladies to have a look at :

And last but not least, I always have an interesting little something at each of the stamp club ladies seats, and it is usually filled with something yummy! This time around I made these little candy wrappers, aren't they cute??

I hope I have shown you just why stamp club is such a great way to spend a couple of hours once a month.......good friends, great projects, and a catchup is always good for you! I love to share what I do, and I would love to share it with you!
Until next time, remember to make some time to papercraft!!

Gate Fold Hidden Easel Card

I love this fancy fold card - it's made from one sheet of A4 cardstock, instead of adding an easel fold base to a card base, and it can...
