First time in Australia... Online Ordering is HERE!

We knew it was coming.  And we've been very very patient. Well mostly. But finally! Today is the day!  Online ordering of Stampin'Up product is now available in Australia!  Hooray!

To visit my very own Online Store to place your orders.. visit THIS LINK.

And not only that... as of today we can also access MDS.  What is MDS I hear you ask?  Well it stands for "My Digital Studio" and it's Stampin'Up's very own digital scrapbooking software.  If you like to play with your creativity on your computer.. you are going to love MDS. I thought you might like a little look at what its all about.. so copy this link into your browser:

MDS is available to download for the very low cost of $24.95... and its already loaded up with content for you to use. Of course there is more content available to you if you need more!   Or if you want to "try before you buy".. then you can simply download the free trial.. free for 30 days for you to test out and play with... how cool is that!  You can order it online via the Online Ordering link provided HERE.  Of course, when you download... there are no postage charges!

So to celebrate Online ordering.. the first 3 people to place an order through Online ordering with me will each receive a $10 voucher to spend on your very next purchase with me.  The only catch is that you need to reside in Australia to do this.. and you need to use MY online ordering link.  So it will have my name as the demonstrator at the top of the ordering page.  Click HERE to go to my online store. 

I'm just a bit excited because it really is like having my very own online shop!

And I hope you like today's little one layer card... the idea for it popped into my head and i made it in about 5 minutes... funny how it happens like that sometimes.  :-)

Dress Ups Framelits 50's style

Well I think 50's.. but maybe 40's?  What do you think?  I made this little card whilst at my Crafty weekend away last weekend, and was really happy with how it turned out. I love playing with these framelits.. they are so much fun!  I love the dress in the dotty paper, and how cute is that little coat hanger clip??  Lots of stuff on this card is out of the current Autumn Seasonal Catalogue from Stampin'Up!  If you would like to see the catalogue for yourself click HERE.

And dont forget that TODAY is the final day for Sale-a-Bration (SAB) 2013.  So you can still get a free SAB product for every $100 that you spend.. but only until my final order goes in this evening.  I can have your products delivered to your door anywhere in Australia for a small postage charge.  Just email me with your order.

If you like my "Dress Ups" card today, you might also like my Frame and card class to be held in April.. click HERE for more details.

Have a lovely day, wherever you are.

All Dressed Up for Mother's Day

Hello everyone!  I've been having a lovely weekend with some gorgeous friends getting creative.  Today I worked on my project class for April, and I want to show you what I came up with.  It's a frame using the "Dress Ups" Framelits from the current Stampin'Up Autumn catalogue.  To make them I also used the "Razzleberry Splash" Simply Scrappin' Pack and had fun creating embellishments for the dresses.  It took me back to my childhood playing dress ups!  Soooo... much fun!

So.... who wants to create this frame (and a matching gift card) with me?  This is my project class for April... and I thought it would make a great Mother's Day gift (of course it doesn't have to be for Mother's Day... you could always keep it for yourself!)  I will need to stick to limited numbers for this class so please email me by clicking HERE if you would like to attend.  Here are the details:

All Dressed Up Project Class
Tuesday 9th April @ 7.30pm
Thursday 11th April @ 11am
Cost $40
Alternatively, if you wish to purchase the All Dressed Up Framelits and Stamp Set bundle (or the "Dress Ups" framelits and Razzleberry Splash Simply Scrappin' Pack) you will receive your class at half price, ie $20.  If you wish to take up this option, just let me know when you book in so that I can order them to be collected when you attend your class.  I need at least one week's notice if that is the case.
All materials and light refreshments are provided.  Cardmaking and papercraft classes are held on the Central Coast, and the address will be supplied to you at time of booking.

I'll be putting up some more April Class projects and dates in the next couple of days, so stay tuned..

Here is the matching card you will be making along with the frame...

Oval Framelits Embossed Vellum card

Today's card came about when I was making up samples for this week's Vellum technique class. I didn't actually use this card as one of the class projects, but it was great to show off how beautifully Vellum embosses.  Check back here over the coming days to see next month's class schedule, and enjoy this little card today. :-)

Don't forget that SALE-A-BRATION ends in just over a week - It's Stampin'Up's biggest promotion of the year!  So you get your free products for every $100 that you spend. To see what's on offer click HERE... and then email me with your order by the 22nd March 2013.

Any questions, just contact me!

Beautiful Swallowtail Stamp

I have finally purchased for myself the gorgeous "Swallowtail" stamp from our latest Autumn Seasonal catalogue. (Although I borrowed the stamp to make the sample card shown here - which then confirmed to me that I needed to own it!)  Stampin'Up released this one at the beginning of February, and there have been so many lovely products to create with in this catalogue... I am sure I wont get to show you all of my ideas during the time the catalogue is current (until June) but I will give it my best shot :-)  Today's card is one from this week's Vellum techniques class.  (For you info, the Tuesday evening class is already full.. but if there is enough interest to run a second evening class I will certainly do so.)

I stamped the background cardstock ("Pool Party") with the En Francais background stamp, then stamped the butterfly in Black Stazon directly on to the Vellum. I have worked my colours on to the reverse side of the vellum which gives it a lovely soft effect.  The sentiment is the little "Just for you" stamp from the Pop-Up Posies Designer kit, also in the new latest Autumn catalogue.

If you wish to order any products for yourself, or need any information about any of the products mentioned (or even those that aren't!) then please click HERE and you will be directed to my email.

I hope you enjoy this little simple card today :-)

2 very different cards

As many of you know I have a bit of a love affair with window cards... I love to create them whenever I can.  And now that we have the Ovals framelits there are lots of new opportunities to make windows! Today I have been playing with my new "Oh Hello" stamp set (perfect day for creating - wet and a bit wintry) and using my favourite "Comfort Cafe" DSP.

This is my second card for Tuesday night's Stamp-a-Stack (we'll be making 3 of each card for a total of 6 with matching envelopes).  If you would like to come along I still have spots for both the Evening and the Day class - so just pick the one that suits your schedule best.  Here are the dates and times:

Tuesday 5th March @ 7.30pm
Wednesday 6th March @ 11am
Cost is $20 and everything is supplied. 

I would love to see you there!  Classes are held on the Central Coast and I can supply the address when you book in.  To book your spot email me by clicking HERE

Here is the other card we are making in case you missed the last post... this one is a kids card...
