The stamp sets i have used in these cards are: Paisley Background Stamp, French Script Background Stamp, Carte Postale (new), All Year Cheer II, Reason to Smile hostess stamp set and Word by Word Background stamp.
The Colours I have used are: Cool Caribbean, Perfect Plum, Taken with Teal, Whisper White, Regal Rose and Close to Cocoa.
Other items used: Versamark ink, Stampin' Write Markers, Perfect plum eyelet, Stampin' Dimensionals, White EP, Ribbon Originals - Flirty (new), heat tool, 3/4 " round punch and Designer Series Double sided Paper - Loves Me (new).

Cards i have made Lately

Here are some pictures of some of the cards i have been making lately. I have been slack in putting them on my blog...sorry. They have all been made using Stampin' Up! products.

There have been others but some of them i forgot to scan before i sent them to the people they were made for.

"All in the Family" and "Just in Thyme"

I am sad to say that this blog entry is starting off with some sad news. You may or may not know that the Australian General Manager of Stampin’ Up!, Dave Abbott, recently passed away from a rare blood disease, at the age of 41, leaving behind his wife and 3 young children. Stampin’ Up! have just released the stamp set called ‘All in the Family’ in Australia in order to raise money for Dave’s family. 100% of the proceeds of the sale of this stamp set worldwide will be donated to Dave’s young family. The ‘All in the Family’ stamp set will appear in the Idea Book & Catalogue 2008-2009 (which will be released in April), but has been pre-released to raise money for the Abbott family. The promotion will run from the 1st of November through till the 30th of November. The set will not be available again after the 30th of November until the 1st of April. For more information on this stamp set click on the following link.

I have decided as part of this worthwhile cause to offer a very special deal. This deal is only if you order through me. For each purchase of the ‘All in the Family Stamp’ Set ($73.95 + $5.95 Postage and Handling) you can purchase a Stamp-a-ma-jig for just $10 (normally sells for $22.95). The reason for this special deal is that a Stamp-a-ma-jig will help you get the most out of this stamp set because it allows you to line up the stamps perfectly every time.

If you don't want the Stamp-a-ma-jig or purhaps you may already have one i am also offering this set at the reduced cost of $59.16 + $5.95 P&H.

On a happier note, Stampin’ Up! Have a new promotion this month called “Just in Thyme!”. From November 1st till December 15th you will be able to order the most gorgeous Christmas Designer Double Sided Paper for $14.50 + P&H (usual retail value $16.95) Click on the following link for more information. There is no limit as to how many packs you can order at that price either BUT it’s for a limited time only!! Below is Christmas card and box that i have made using these wonderful papers.

Well that is the specials for this month. Remember also that the Spring Mini Catalogue will soon end on November 30th so now is the time to order the things you want from it before it is finished. On the 1st of December there will be the release of the New Summer Mini Catalogue! I will let you know more about it soon but let me tell you this… is fantastic, so stayed tuned for more information.
If you have any questions regarding these promotions or would like to host a workshop please don’t hesitate to call me or send me an email.
