Here is the swap I made for the recent Stampin' Up! Regional Conference in Melbourne. I wanted to use some of the new products in the upcoming Mini Catalogue being released on December 1 (yes this is your sneak peek) and these include the new glimmer paper, and the Postage Stamp Punch. There are lots more beautiful things that you will love and great timing for Christmas. I also do gift vouchers if you would like them for friends and family. If you would like me to send you a FREE copy of the Summer Mini Catalogue, just drop me an email with your address to email@example.com.
I wanted to have a Christmas theme for my swap and I thought the glimmer paper would be perfect for this. I have also used the top note die in the background as well as the itty bitty punches and triple layer bouquet punch for the bows on the presents. The presents are punched from the GORJUS Mocha Morning Specialty DSP, it has some beautiful papers in it that have flocking, not sure if you can tell from the pic (it's so nice to touch). Thanks for visiting today. There will be more sneak peeks coming next week PLUS I have a super surprise on December 1st so dont forget to come back and visit again soon.

It seems I am surrounded by babies recently so I must make baby cards to keep up. Here is a boy and girl version of a card I CASED from cant remember where sorry. Some of these things are retired on the girl version but the boy one uses some cute images from the new Baby Bundle Stamp Set. I have used my Big Shot letters and large Scallop Circle Die. I used my Circle Scissor Plus to cut the inner circle and the Polka Dot Embossing Folder for the background.

If you glance over the pages of my blog, you would see evidence of the Big Shot on nearly every project. Why? Because I love it so much and am, dare I say, "addicted". If you have ever thought about taking the plunge and getting one of your own....now is the time. November is Big Shot specials month. There is a special starter bundle plus a great selection of dies and embossing folders all available at 10% off. PLUS the extra bonus from me is lots of creative ideas to use your machine once you get it. So dont think about it any longer, think of the all the gorgeous gifts for Christmas you could create for all your friends and family, and who doesnt love receiving a handmade gift? This special is only available until November 30. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone on 0414400841 if you would like to order your very own. Click here for more info.
I am very honoured to be a designer for Madeline and her team over at Inkspirations4U. This round had a Christmas theme and this time I decided to create a Christmas Card Organiser. I included a template for recording the cards sent and received over the years. It was super cute and had pockets made from full sheets of DSP to keep your cards in ready to send. I used the Big shot for the letters and decorated using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch and the new Vanilla Velvet Stitched Ribbon. Thanks for visiting today.
One of my Demo team is so talented but she doesnt have a blog so I asked her if she didnt mind if I posted the gorgeous card (and matching envelope) she made for my new baby boy on my blog. I love how she made the card to match the colours in the beautiful blanket she gave him. Super Cute Jenny, thanks so much.

Have been wanting to play with my Build-a-Bear dies for ages and it wasnt til my friend Denise had a go that then I was inspired....I loved her Pirate so much that I totally CASED it then I needed a girly one so made this one....you can see my FAV Wisteria Wonder in use again :)
Ok, now this post is WAY overdue (Sorry Roanne and Nikki). The focus for stamp club in September is always the release of the new catalogue and I thought these cards showcased some of the exciting newbies, including the new 'In Colors' and the new 'Mocha Specialty DSP'. I have also used some of the new stamps inlcuding Kindness Matters, Best of Everything, Forever Young and Four Frames. Cant forget those embellishments, I have also used the new Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border and the Lace Ribbon Border punches, and the GORJUS new Ruffled Ribbon in the new Wisteria Wonder (definitely my FAV new colour). Now to post last months stamp club......
