Reserve your Stamparatus!

Introducing the Stamparatus, an innovative new stamp placement tool.  The Stamparatus will change the way you stamp, and before long, you’ll wonder how you crafted without it!
What can you do with it?
• Make multiples with ease
• Consistently stamp crisp, clean images
• If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and restamp—no need to start over
• Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money
• Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images using reversible plates
• Develop new and specialized stamping techniques with adjustable stamping plates and precision placement

But not only that, it also:
• is compatible with Stampin’ Up!’s red rubber and photopolymer stamp
• comes with a foam mat to use with photopolymer stamps
• has rulers and gridlines for quick measuring
• has 2 open sides so you can stamp on larger paper
• comes with 2 reversible plates: a total of 4 surfaces to work with
• has 2 magnets to hold the paper in place
• and even has magnet storage areas

How much for all this brilliance? Only $85.00 for a tool you're going to use every time you stamp. Check out the video to see it in operation:

"So, how can I get one?" I hear you ask.

CCMC484 Quilted Christmas Trees

It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at
This week is a sketch challenge, and this is the sketch we had to work with:

Making Christmas cards always gets me in the Christmas Spirit, and since Christmas is only a month-and-a-bit away (*gasp!*), I thought I'd better put some Ho Ho Ho in my life.
  • The only stamping on this card is the sentiment (from the Oh, What Fun stamp set in the Annual Catalogue). The rest is all from the Quilted Christmas DSP Stack.
  • The sentiment has been punched out using the Classic Label Punch
  • I snipped out a couple of 'trees' from the quilted triangle patterned sheet, and then I cut my own larger tree from one of the other patterns
  • I made my banner shape using Real Red cardstock and the Triple Banner Punch

I hope you like my card. Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page!

Stampin' Up! OnStage Event

I've just returned from an amazing couple of days on the Gold Coast. I was there to attend our Stampin' Up! Demonstrator event. Here I am with some of my lovely (and excited!) team members.
There was much excitement as we got to preview the upcoming Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-Bration brochure (released in January), and we even got to play with new products...once the Stampin' Alarms had been turned off!

We were also lucky enough to receive tons of giveaways and prizes. Stampin' Up! sure know how to spoil us!
Throughout the day we watched both streamed stamping presentations from the US, plus live demonstrations from our Aussie Demos.
Stampin' Up! also announced awards and recognition for Top Demonstrators both locally and globally. I walked the stage for achieving the Alaska Incentive Trip and then I got a lovely surprise when my name was announced for 3rd in Australia for recruiting!
I was cheering and clapping for my fellow Demonstrators for the other awards, when I got the shock of my life. They count down the Top 10 in Australia and I never dreamed for a second that my name would be in there. I almost fell on the floor when my name was called out for Number 2. I thought maybe I'd misheard, but there it was up on the screen:
I'm still half-expecting someone to call me and tell me that they made a big mistake!
The next HUGE surprise was when this happened:

There are approximately 50,000 Demonstrators in the world and I am Number 75. I can't quite get my head around it! I'm a shortie, and as the day went on, my lanyard got longer and longer, until I had to hitch it up so it didn't dangle between my knees! ...not such a good look, and quite a nuisance when going to the bathroom! :)
In no way have I done this alone - I am so grateful for my amazing team, my loyal customers, and my incredibly supportive hubby. I couldn't have done it without them.
I'm still on cloud you think it would look silly if I wore my lanyard grocery shopping?! ;)

Just Add Blends

I've been colouring my little heart out with my new Stampin' Blends Markers. I pulled out my pack of Just Add Colour Designer Series Paper, and I've been working my way through all the sheets and then making cards out of them. It's great therapy, and very practical too. My blood pressure has been playing up lately, so I'm hoping the colouring in will relax and de-stress me!

These pens are so user-friendly. You'll get very professional results straight away. My colour scheme on this card is Calypso Coral and Pool Party, with a few other spring-y shades thrown in. The Calypso Coral Ombre ribbon is just divine, and I've even coloured a Subtle Enamel Shape to match my colour scheme (the heart was originally pink, but I transformed it using a Rich Razzleberry Blends pen).
