Christmas is Coming!!

Hello all.....yes, two posts in one day! I have to make up for not posting for a week!
I wanted to mention that I am going to be running Christmas Card Stamp a Stacks in August, so now is the time to register your interest!
We will be making 12 cards - 4 each of 3 designs - and stamping envelopes to match. It will be held in a hall in Kenwick, and I will have two days to choose from.......a weekday while the kiddies are at school, and a Saturday afternoon. If anyone is interested in hosting one at their house with their friends and family, I can do that to! I am also interested in running one in the evening, possibly a Friday night, let me know your preferences! Payment will need to be upfront so that will secure your seat. And if you wanted to attend more than one, rest assured that each SAS will have different designs if that is organised up front :)
Contact me with your interests and I will organise your kit! Christmas is sneaking up on us quicker than ever, don't be caught out using those boring commercial boxed cards....they do the job, but are so impersonal - impress your family and friends with your handmade creations! It is fun and simple!! Call or email me today!

Mums In Biz Expo Update

Good morning beautiful people!!
Sorry it has taken so long to update you on the Expo I was recently a part of...but it was the kids first week back at school, and it just flew by! My kids have an activity on after school every day - be it dancing classes, swimming lessons or soccer/basketball training - so the days do tend to pass by quickly, sometimes you have to consciously make the decision to stop and take a breath!
But anyway, enough about that! I have some photos of my little spot at the Expo, would you like to see? Of course you would! Well, here we are.....I didn't have a lot of time to set up, so I wasn't able to get my banner up or the tables set up exactly the way I would've liked, but I will plan better for the next one, and hopefully be able to get in the hall a little earlier and spend some time setting up without rushing. I have a couple of my display table and one of my make & take area...

And of course, one of the car packed and ready to go!!
It was an interesting day, and I learnt a lot, particularly from some of the other ladies who displayed. So if you came along and stopped by to say hi, it was great to see you! I will keep you all updated about our next expo, and any other display days I might be involved in, and I hope you will be able to come along, it is great fun!
On another note.....it is only 2 days until the retired list comes out for the current catalogue...wow the year has passed by so quickly! I am looking forward to seeing the list......but that also means that it is nearly the end of July...and with it, the end of the Ice Cream Palour Button and Ribbon Promotion! With every order placed of $100 or more, before postage, you were able to get that gorgeous bundle! And now it is nearly over......SO if you were wanting that free gift, contact me today with your order, before it is too late!! Don't forget the Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue is coming to an end tomorrow as well....any orders will need to be placed with me no later than 6pm Sunday 31st.....some of the items in the mini won't make it to the new Idea Book and Catalogue, so if there is something in there that you want, now is the time to get it, or it may be gone forever!
Well, that's it for me for today...I will be back with more exciting news in a couple of days....until then, happy stamping!!

Something to share

Hi there!
I just wanted to pop in and remind you all that I will be at the Mums in Biz Expo at the hall at Crestwood Estate in Thornlie WA on Saturday....come and say hello!! I am making up the FREE make & take kits right now, and I think you will enjoy them! You get to play with some Stampin' Up! product AND you get to take home what you make!!
I have been CASEing a couple of cards I found on the internet because they were so gorgeous, and I wanted to share them with you. The first one was originally created by the lovely Rita Wright, and here is my recreation :


This next one I am not sure who's the original creator, but here is my recreation:


Did you notice that the stars seemed to be inside the paper? This is called inlaid embossing and it is one of my favourite new techniques!
Still with the Extreme Guitar stamp set, this is one I recreated for a birthday party my son recently attended - how cool is this one!

Well, that's me for today. If you would like to know how any of the above cards were made, or the products they were made with, give me a call and I would be happy to help you out!
Have a great night, and try to make some time to stamp!

Welcome to Stampin' with Kylie!

Hi there,
Well, if you are reading this then you have found me LOL! I have made several attempts to have a blog, but I have finally gone ahead and got it organised!
I am sitting at my desk in my craft room and it is freezing today! Wow, winter finally found Perth, eh? I have spent a lot of time in here over the last few days as I am getting over a cold and I want to stay away from the family in case I pass it on - well, that is my excuse and I am sticking to it hehe! At least with the time I have spent in here I have actually managed to get quite a bit done. I have a demonstration day coming up in a couple of weeks with a few other mums who have formed a group called "Mums in Biz", which I will formally announce once we are up and running properly. In the flyer I have promised to have some free make and takes and a free handmade gift for everyone who books a party or places an order on the day...so I have made a start on that. Plus I wanted to have a few new things to display - I love it when someone picks up something I have spent time on and goes "oooh, I love this!" it really makes my day :)

I do have a picture to share with you today....I found a template online and I have actually completed it lol! I have so many templates saved to my computer that I have never made, it is ridiculous! So for my first blog post, I thought I would share something special I have made. Please excuse the photos - I am still working out the best way to take photos to blog.
