Saleabration ends soon…

…be sure to get your order in as there’s only 5 sleeps left.  Boy time flies!  I’ve just realised I haven’t posted at all this month – sorry all – It’s been a bit hectic lately!

I’ve been asked to make some cards for another direct sales friend whom I met recently at a friends party.  She sells Arbonne and I have absolutely fallen in love with the skin care and make up range.  My skin has not look this good in years and people keep telling me I look great so I must be on to a winner.

Anyway…here are two clean and simple cards that showcase the bloomin marvelous Bloomin Marvelous stamp set that I’ve made for her.


  • This card proves you don’t need many supplies to make handmade cards and one layer cards are the way to go when you want something quick and easy.

Stamp Set:
Bloomin Marvelous, Sentiment is demonstrator set
Card: Whisper White
Ink: Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit (my fave!!!), Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Early Espresso
Tools:  Paper Cutter


  • Inspiration comes from the gorgeous Sunshine and Sprinkles Designer Series Paper, and I’ve used the bright colours, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade and Melon Mambo to ink up the flower and Basic Grey ink for the sentiment.
  • I have trimmed away 2.5 cm from the bottom of the front of the card and adhered a strip of Sunshine and Sprinkles dots to give a little something more.

Patterned Occasions

Tomorrow is my rescheduled occasions catalogue launch and I’m so excited.  I had to cancel last weekend due to illness and I was so disappointed as I hate letting people down.  Everyone has been so understanding and are all still coming tomorrow and a few people who were unable to make it last week have signed up now, so the class will be even better!

I thought I’d share one of the prizes I’m giving away tomorrow.

Patterned Occasions Launch Prize launchPrize2

At workshops and launches, I always share a few prizes and I like to give away a combination of product, samples of product and handmade items.  Here’s a little handmade prize that I am super excited about.  This is a box of 6 emergency gift card holders with 10 Patterned Occasions stamped tags and scallop circles so they can be made up as needed.

This little set is inspired by a tutorial from the Spring Edition of Create with Connie and Mary. If you haven’t found this blog yet, head on over and check out their site.  I’m enjoying learning new techniques and ideas to share with you. I kept the main components of the design because I really loved it but was busting to use the simply gorgeous Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP and the honeycomb embossing folder from the new catalogue. Let me know what you think…I love to read your comments.

Happy Stamping!
