Market Stall Cards

Making cards for my Market Stall!!!


I just love this Beautiful Bouquet Stamp set It not only has lots of sentiments & verses but also has lovely floral stamps to make your card very elegant



I created my first card from Rich Razzleberry & Sweet Sugar Plum Card Stock using the heat embossing technique for the floral design and sentiments So I thought I would mix it up a bit with the colours for the second creation using Bermuda Bay & Whisper white card stock 
As you can see 2 beautiful cards were created using the same Beautiful Bouquet Stamp set

Weekend Market Stall



Weekend Market Stall!!!

Ok so have you ever wanted to know what having a market stall would be like to get our Stampin Up! products out there to the public??

I attend our local Car Boot market every 1st & 3rd Sunday in the month which I have been doing now for the last 13-14 years Our children were only babies when we first started at the markets




This is how I had my table set up and I must say it was my best market yet with selling my Handmade Cards. One thing I have learnt is not to take for granted that people will be willing to come up and search for a card they want if they are all laying flat on the table.

Through the week leading up to the markets I took a drive over to our second hand Shop fitting and house fitting store to find something a bit better to display my cards. I stumble across 2 of these wire baskets that are meant to hang from a wall. I could see the potential that if I could make a stand for them to be able to be displayed on a table top that they would definitely make it easier to see my cards.


So all week I worked on making the headings for the categories and made sure I had the stand full of wonderful handmade cards. I also displayed my new current Stampin Up! Catalogues in front of my card displays as well as my old ones I gave out my old catalogues for free



This was how full my stand was at the beginning of the day!!!


This is how empty it was by the end of the market I sold 20 cards & gave out 4 of my old catalogues to crafting people who could be potential customers in the near future I was pretty happy with my day overall

Weekend Fun!!!

Fun Times for our Family!!!

Ok So my life is not all Stampin Up! Just thought I would give everyone a bit of an incite into what I do in my free time.

If you don't know me personally you might not know that our family is a hockey family Up to just this year my husband Darryl myself and our 2 daughters Jade & Denni-Lee play hockey all through the winter
So our weekends consist of junior games as well as senior games.

My 2 daughters and myself play in our A Grade competion in our home town which is just incredible to be playing along side my daughters as team mates Such a great honor 

So this year things have changed a little my husband is now the coach so we are altogether playing a game that we love 

So stamps and ink pads get put aside for the weekend and off we go to our games

So the motto of this little story is that we still have lots of time to do our family things as well 
Life is not all work with no play!!!

Rainy Weekend Cards!!!

More of my Rainy Weekend Card Creations!!!!


So as I was saying in my last blog what better thing to do on a rainy weekend than craft and that is exactly what I did for most of the Queen's Birthday Long Weekend here in NSW!!!

As promised here are some more of my creations from my weekend.
Wild About Flowers stamp set is a beautiful stamp set to play with
as you can see in this lovely card!!! 




I used Whisper White Card stock for my base then layered with Berry Burst Card Stock with an overlay of Whisper White Card Stock to stamp the beautiful Flowers
On the whisper white top layer I sponged with my sponge daubers starting from the right side with Powdered  Pink Ink Pad then Berry Burst Ink Pad then Fresh Fig Ink Pad working towards the left
Flowers were stamped with the same 3 new ink colour Ink Pads
I have finished the front off with my sentiment stamped in Fresh Fig on a tag made with my Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and trimmed with the new in colour Fresh Fig Ribbon.
I always like to finish my cards off inside by bringing some stamped images from the front of my card to link the inside with the same theme.

What to do On a Rainy Weekend??? Craft Of Course!!!!

Rainy Day Weekend Creations!!!




We have had a very wet weekend in The Northern Rivers Area of NSW Australia but what better way to spend the weekend than Crafting My most favorite past time!!!

First job was to clean up the craft room!!!!! OMG that was a big JOB!!!!

What do you think???


I also made the Stampin Up Ink Pad holder from foam board for a little more organisation at a little cost!!!
Then after finally getting some order in my craft room I had 2 whole days to play and what a great time I had


Here are some of my new creations
First of all I had wanted to make some cards for people battling with the dreaded cancer I am sure there are very few families that have not been effected in some way or another from this horrible disease so what better bundle than 
The Ribbon of Courage bundle  
I made one in pink for Breast Cancer Using our new in colour
Powdered Pink!!!



I also made one using our Wisteria wonder Card stock!!!


I have embossed using VersaMark Ink Pad and gold embossing powder for the sentiments 
and I must admit I do cheat every now and then and use Stampin Up! Crumb Cake Ink Pad to look like gold when I don't have my embossing powder close at hand.
For the purchase of any of these items please Click Here 
or you can click on the 2017/2018 picture of our new catalogue in the top right hand corner of my blog

If you are looking to place an order which totals more than $169 AUD why not think about joining up with my team as you will receive $235 worth of product for the cost of $169

Fantastic RAK 2017/2018 Annual Catalogue May Card Swap

RAK 2017/2018 Annual Catalogue Card swap Group May!!!

I have recently joined a card swap group that was created by the talented Kylie Bertucci called Random Act Of Kindness Card Swap Group on facebook 
I have to say I have never had so much fun creating and receiving the beautiful cards from the lovely ladies in this group.
I have only been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator for almost 12 months but in that time I have met the most caring group of crafters that inspire me so much with their talent
In the month of May Kylie started an event that you could join a team of 10 ladies to create 10 cards all the same made form products from the new 2017/2018 Catalogue with one person as the groups leader Our group leader was the lovely Kellie Goldthorpe We all sent our creations to her and when Kellie received them all she placed a card from each of us into 10 bundles and sent them back out to us So in other words we received 1 card from each of the 10 ladies in the group
Here is a picture of the cards that these beautiful ladies created!!!



I also made a you tube video that you can watch which explains more in detail the items used and colours used to create these lovely cards what a fantastic way to have a look at items out of the new catalogue


Click on video below to see all items used to create these cards



Thank You for dropping in to my Blog

Stampin Up You Move Me Bundle 2017/2018 Annual Catalogue !!!






You Move Me Bundle 2017/2018 New Catalogue Item!!

This is such a great new idea You stamp an insert for your card with the beautiful butterfly image and as you move the insert in and out the butterfly wings look like they flutter 
Do you remember as kids you used to get those images that were magical and depending on which way you looked at it and moved it the image moved or changed to a totally different image This great new bundle works with the same principles
Item # 145322 The bundle can be found on page 170 in our brand New 2017/2018 Catalogue that has only just gone live 1st June 2017

I have also created a you tube video tutorial to make this beautiful card
