Demonstrator Business Web Site

As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator I now have the opportunity to have a business website so have decided to try it out. I need to add so much more to it as I have time but for now you can find it here. From now on as promotions are launched they will be on my website and all my classes and workshops will be on my calendar. I hope you enjoy having a look at the site. I will still be updating here at least once a week, so come back and have a look.
have a great day

Bleaching Technique

On Saturday we had Regional Meetings for Stampin Up! here in Perth and I was asked to present a workshop Wow on the day. I chose the bleaching technique. I love the way different colours of card stock react to the bleach.
I chose to use Baja breeze and found that it bleached to a colour close to Blush Blossom, so I chose to use Blush Blossom for my card.


Also Bordering Blue changed to a colour close to Pink Pirouette. On this card I used the Tre Chic background stamp.


With my Perfect Plum and Pale Plum card I used Close as a Memory and as the image bleached out to almost white I used white to accent the card.



I also used bleach in my aqua painter and bleached out parts of rose petals in the Fifth Ave Floral set. I then layered 3 sections of the rose for a 3D effect for my last card.

Spotlight on Christmas

Today I have been making Christmas cards with a couple of ladies. I used Marelle's great layout for one of her stamp a stacks using Spotlight on Christmas. I just changed a few things around and had fun using this set that I have been wanting to sit down and play with for awhile. It was fun to try different ways of making the cards using the same basic pieces. Thanks Marelle for the ideas.

Trinny and Susannah

Wow its been nearly 2 weeks since I posted anything and would you believe today I'm not showing a card but telling you about the fun day I had. I know I don't usually chat about what I'm up to but I was so excited today to go and watch Trinny and Susannah do a show at Carousel. I even got their autographs and a photo with them. it was a great show with them making over about 6 ladies who needed to change their look. I took note of one of the outfits and later while walking past Katie's found the little cardigan that I had liked and while in the shop also found the dress that they had suggested for this one lady. I had to try it on and even though its nothing like what I would normally wear I actually bought it and the little crocheted cardigan. I don't fit the dress quite perfectly yet but with a kilo or so more and a new bra it will look great. I am keeping it for a special occasion.
here are some photos I took. I was way up the back of the crowd but with a zoom and holding the camera above my head I got some good pictures. Then later they signed autographs and I got a pic with them. the one that Trinny took of us wasn't very flattering for either of us so I'll leave that one out.
Well its getting late so I had better finish for tonight and try to get back to show you some cards in the next day or so. Im not the best blogger but at least I put something on every now and then.

World Card Making Day Fundraiser

Fresh Cuts

Cheep Talk

So Swirly Roller


Yesterday was World Card Making Day and the fundraiser that I held at Lesmurdie Baptist Church was a huge success. My 2 wonderful friends Sandra and Karen helped me organise the day and we had 29 people attend. They got to make 5 each of 2 Christmas cards and 6 other cards. I have already shown you one of the cards last week so thought I would show you the others. I designed some of them and then cased others as the wonderful Stampin Up demonstrators are happy to share their ideas with us so that days like this can be organised much quicker. I don't have the time to go back and find the cards designers that I got inspiration from so Thank you to those that share their ideas. I want to thank everyone who came and made it such a wonderful day.
My goal and dream was to raise $1000 to send out to Thailand with the mission team and what a great surprise when we totalled up at the end of the day and it was $2013.50
The funds were raised with silent auctions, raffles, and of course the fee to attend the day. Stampin' Up! the wonderful company that they are donated retired products f0r our raffles.
I hope you enjoy looking at these cards as much as everyone enjoyed making them yesterday. thank you for looking and have a great week
