Setting up my Stampin' Up! website and class timetable

Well here in Australia we are very happy to finally have access to our very own Stampin' Up! Demonstrator website. This means that along with our Blogs we have the ability to reach further a field.

I have spent the best part of this evening organising my classes for the next month and a half. Please go to my website to check out my class list. If anything there interests you please book in for a class. Over the next couple of days (and possibly weeks  - well more so for the Welcome to Summer class), I will have samples of what we will be doing in my classes. I really hope you can make it to one.

For now I am going to have some dinner and then get on with some creating. Hope to be back tomorrow.

Reverse Spotlighting

I haven't had time to do much lately - the girls have been keeping me busy. I don't know how the other demo's do it. Looking after their family, creating and actually running classes and workshops!!! I was checking out splitcoaststampers late last week and came upon a tutorial for Reverse Spotlighting. Never one to not try new things, well when it comes to creating, I thought I would give it a go. I am happy with the result.

What do you think? I am going to give it a go next time with a Christmas theme (if I get time to!!!)

Materials Used: All Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Great Friend (116889) from Spring Mini
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss
Card: Whipser White, Pretty in Pink, Kiwi Kiss

Simply Said from the heart

Hi all,

Well I have managed to find some time to finally put some thoughts and ink to card.  I have been playing around with the Simply Said stamp set and I am reasonably happy with what I have come up with. I chose this set as I have a friend who is having a particularly tough time of it at the moment and the sentiments in the set are so appropriate.

Here are the 4 cards that I had a play with last night and below is the matching wallet.

If you like what you see and would like to make the set then, why not book a demonstration. Email me on

Have to go now before the girls muck up.

 Materials Used (all Stampin' Up!)

Well I have done it!!!

Hi everyone,

I have done it and signed up as an Independent Stampin' Up!® demonstrator. After being introduced to Stampin' Up! back in 2007 and completely loving the product but not having the "guts" to go through with it, I met a lovely demonstrator named Marelle Taylor. After attending a couple of Christmas Stamp A Stacks at her house, I realised I could give it a go. Why would I not when I get to play with fantastic tools, meet lots of lovely new people, and purchase Stampin' Up products at a discount. Anyway, I don't have any examples of my work yet - but hopefully over the next couple of days I will be able to post some pictures of some cards I have made. Oh and this blog is still in the process of being built - I am slowly working my way around things
