Team Meeting

When I joined Stampin' Up! I was excited not only because of the fantastic product they offer (and it all co-ordinates amazingly well) but also for the great people you get to meet and spend time with. Each month we have a team meeting at the home of our team leader Nikki and we get to play with new product, try out a new technique or work on some business building for those wanting to move ahead. This month we tried a technique called "shaving cream". This involved lots of messy shaving cream, re-inkers and a heap of paper towel. We played around and experimented using lots of different colour combinations and then had to take our finished cardstock home and create a card with it. Here are my finished cards. . . .

The first card is made using a new stamp set called "Hello, Lovely" from the 2013-2014 Annual Catalogue, which is released on July 2nd 2013. Please contact me if you would like a copy.

Welcome to my blog!!!

Welcome to my blog - I hope you enjoy having a look.

There is not much here yet, but I hope to have more in the days to come.

Well, I have taken the plunge and after some fantastic help from a good friend Judy May, I finally have my blog up and running. I am excited to be able to share with you some of the creations I have come up with, although it was difficult choosing the one to use on my first blog post. Anyway - here it is. . . .

I wasn't sure about this stamp set when I first saw it, but after seeing some fantastic ideas with it, I could no longer resist. I think it is great for those harder to produce "male" cards - not sure who will receive this, but I love the sponging (which also gives a sneak peek to some of the new In Colours)
