Here is a sneak peek at what I will be demonstrating tomorrow at the Paperific Show. They are roses made out of the ornament punch attached to little boxes that would hold several cards and envelopes or a gift for someone special. (learn how to make the roses here) The ornament punch is one of the new punches available in the new catalogue which goes live on Wednesday. Call me for your own copy sent to your door. I also have a poster on display with many cards using this punch, it really is sooooooo versatile. If you want to learn how easy these roses are to make, get on down to the show tomorrow and say 'Hi' and visit me and the other girls at the Stampin' Up! stand. Hope to see you there:)

Ok I know I said I was exhausted last night but I really mean it tonight. I have just got home from the baby shower and all was a HUGE success. Mum-to-be Penny was thrilled and totally blown away by the whole day. I am back to show you some pics of the prizes and the baby shower favours. I made 8 Mini Milk Carton boxes (idea found here) and decorated them for prizes and I made 26 Baby Shower favours (made some of these before, click here) for everyone to take home plus one BIG one for Penny to keep. Each Mini Milk Carton had a couple of Lindt Balls in them and the Baby Carriages each had a Freddo frog inside a baby sock in them. I have used a lot of new things which will be available from the 1st September in the NEW CATALOGUE. If you have not yet registered for my Launch Party, do so today to secure your spot and see all the fabulous new products. I am also annoucing the winner of the diaper cake guess. There is in fact 74 nappies. So congratulations to Dee who was the closest guess. Please email me at email@example.com with your address details and I will send out your prize shortly.

I am totally exhausted!!! Have spent all day finalising preparations for the Baby Shower tomorrow but I thought I would finish off with the baby shower card. Totally cased this card but feel terrible because I cant find the original - when I find it again I will link it here. I havent made a square card for like ages and had to dig up my square envelopes :) This card uses some retired DSP as well as some current (not for too much longer though) plus I have used the new stamp set Baby Bundle and the new Butterfly Embosslit (sooooooooo gorgeous) and the new Vintage Embossing Folder. The ribbon is from the ribbon promo earlier in the year plus a button that has also retired :( Am gonna miss some of these colours but am totally in love with the new colour reno - you are all gonna love it too. Cant wait to get my colour bundle and make some new projects with all the new colours. I have also used the Scallop Envelope Die.
I will post the winner from the Baby Shower Cake guess tomorrow (it's not too late to guess, click here to have a go and you may win some Blog Candy from the new Catalogue) as well as many other pics of various things I made for the shower - stay tuned......

This is something I have been working on for a while, couldnt face it all in one sitting. I have just finished it, there is nothing like 'creating' on a Saturday night (ok I have no life alright, well I have a footy obsessed husband actually). This is for my SIL for her baby shower next weekend. I have also made a heap of baby shower favours but I will post them next week. Clearly we don't know what she is having hence all the yellow and green (oops I mean Certainly Celery and So Saffron hehehe) but it was a great opportunity to use all that ribbon I accumulated from the ribbon promotion earlier in the year. I have used the Fox & Friends stamp set plus the new Baby Tees Wheel. I decided to make it a rubber ducky theme cos it worked well with the colour scheme. I have stuffed it with bibs, socks etc.. I took inspiration from this one. Plus the bonus was with all the pics I took I decided to have a play with the Picasa Collage feature - so much fun :) It is super easy, might see what else I can do.....
I am going to offer some 'Blog Candy' as a little treat for a change. If you can guess how many nappies are in this cake, you will win a prize. It will be a pack of sample embellishments from the New Catalogue. The first person to guess correctly will win. I will leave this going for the week, if no-one has guessed correctly, I will award the prize to the closest guess.

Thought I would challenge myself tonight and use colours I don't normally use (I had not even opened the pack of cardstock for some of these colours LOL!) Since many colours are retiring I thought I would try a project using some of them. Colours used include Brilliant Blue, Taken with Teal (both retiring colours) and Tempting Turquoise. The DSP is from the Pink Flamingo Pack (50% off down to $8.48) and the verse is from Curvy Verses. This card also incorporates the Baby Wipe technique - my Stamp Club will be doing this technique on Sunday. You may also notice something NEW! The decorative border is one of the new GORGEOUS punches coming out next month, only two weeks to go - YAY!!! Don't forget my New Catalogue Launch Event on the 12th September. If you haven't registered yet, make sure you get in contact with me to reserve your place. There are still a few places left. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me on 0414 400 841.

This was so much fun to make. I must thank Crafty Cow for her awesome tutorial which made it so easy. Can you believe it is all made from punches! I guess you are wondering why Elvis? Well this guy I made the card for is an absolute Elvis mad crazy fan and he is a great guitarist. He plays his stuff often and I swear you would think it's the King himself! So I couldnt resist having a go at this - as we all know man cards are difficult to come up with at the best of times. Sorry I havent posted much for a while, I have had a lot going on recently, all will be revealed shortly. Mostly I have been preparing for my SIL's baby shower. Will show you all these cute projects in a couple of weeks. Plus I have been preparing for the upcoming Paperific Show. We will be revealing the all new and totally FABULOUS Stampin' Up! 2010-2011 catalogue. So get along to the show and see all the new things and pick up a showbag. Thanks for looking.
