Hi all,

As most of you would know, I have now given up my classes and have enjoyed actually attending some classes (thanks Helen & Mel - 2 very talented ladies!). Here are a couple of cards I have made recently. My hope is that by giving up classes I will actually have some time to enjoy my craft room and do a little more creating!!

Hope you like them!

The first card has been made on acetate with the cottage garden papers/stamps from Stampin Up!

The second card also uses Stampin Up! stamps and accessories. (I gave this one to Peter's mum for her birthday recently).

The photos aren't very good, but you get the general idea.

Thanks for looking!

6 months has passed again!!

Hi all,

As per tradition, it has been 6 months and I guess it is time to post again!!! I cannot believe how quickly time flies! I had promised that it wouldn't be as long before posts in my last one, but here we are again - 6 months later!!

I am trying to sort out a few things at the moment (work, family life, stampin up) and how I can fit everything in again, so that I can become a little more involved with Stampin Up again, as I really miss everything, i.e. blogging, creating, sharing, attending events, hosting events, etc... I am hoping to be able to start holding some workshops again and continuing my bi-monthly stamp-a-stacks. I also want to be able to blog more regularly and keep you all updated on what is happening in the world of Stampin Up!

I wanted to let you all know about a wonderful promotion that is happening during the month of June.

During the month of June, Stampin' Up! will offer several discounted products as "Deals of the Week." No limits and no minimum purchase required.

Each week the deal will change, so if you would like to order anything on offer during that week, you will have to contact me asap!

During Week 1 which runs from 2 June to 8 June you can order any of the following punches:

Scallop Square punch as found on page 152 of the IB&C (idea book & catalogue)

Trio Flower punch as found on page 153 of the IB&C

Boho Blossoms punch as found on page 153 of the IB&C

Scallop Oval punch from the carry-over flyer

the regular price for all 4 punches is $30.95, you can order for this week only at the amazing price of $20.12 (plus p&h).

This promotion is unbelievable, it is such a fantastic price!! (I know a few people who will be receiving punches for birthdays and christmas this year!! lol..)

Anyway, better keep going. I will be back very shortly with some photos of what we are making at the stamp-a-stack I am holding on Monday night, so keep an eye open for that!

Talk soon,
Gina x

I am Back!

Hi all, just a quick post to let you know that I haven't dropped off the face of the earth and that I am back!! I am currently on holidays for 1 more week and in that time hope to finally sort out my craft room and have something to post on here for you!!

So much has happened since the last time I posted - I guess that is a given seeing as it has been over 6 months since I have been here last, wow that has gone so fast!! We have moved into our new home and settled in nicely, just a couple of little jobs to finish off (when we find the time!), I have changed my hours at my actual job and now work part time (well sort of, I still work 4 days a week, doesn't really feel part time!) and Georgia turned 2 in November!!!

I have also been dabbling in a few other crafts including cake making and sewing. I have made a few different pieces of clothing including a couple of cute little skirts for Georgia, and a dress and skirt for myself. I will take some pictures and show you when I get a chance. My next big creation will be a cubby house for Georgia, it looks so cute! It will actually be more like a palace and it will obviously be for indoors as it will have a padded floor with organza windows and doors. It is the type that can be hung from the ceiling and looks so cute. Anyway, I will see how I go with that, hopefully it will work out for her.

Here is a picture of the cake I made for Georgia's 2nd Birthday party. It is a cake full of balloons.

The theme of Georgia's party was Teddy Bears' Picnic, so here are the party tins that we handed out to the children at the end, they were a bit of a hit!

I will be back soon with more to show you!!
