Summer Mini SAB Party

Want to learn how to make this cute Pop Up Card? Then come along to my Summer Mini SAB Party on Saturday the 31st Jan 2009. This will be one of the 3 Make & Takes that I will be demonstrating & you will be making. The beauty of this fun card, is that it folds flat so can easily be sent in the post.

Have you seen the gorgeous felt flowers in the Summer Mini Catalogue? They come in an assorted tin with the three colours shown - Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie & Old Olive.

The party starts at 1pm, so come along to check out & play with some of the new products that are available in the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalogue. Along with the Make & Takes, there will be specials, prizes, freebies & more, so email me if you would like any more information -

Sale-A-Bration One Sheet Wonders

Mel has a challenge on her blog this week to make a One Sheet Wonder, which I have never done before, so thought I'd join in. If you haven't heard of a One Sheet Wonder before, it is simply one sheet of cardstock that you have stamped all over, then cut/punched to use on cards. I have used the Sale-A-Bration stampset called Botanical Blooms that can be yours for FREE, by simply spending $100 on Stampin' Up! products before 28th Feb 2009.

Generally you would stamp a whole A4 sheet, so would be able to make up quite alot of cards, but here I have only used an A5 sheet.

This card has been CASEd from the very talented Teneale - I don't think I have seen one card that she has made that I haven't LOVED!

I have CASEd this one from Sue - I love her innovative use of stamps.

And lastly this one has been CASEd from Beate - who is a German demonstrator & really makes me wish I could read German as she has some great projects on her blog.
Stampsets: Botanical Blooms, Yummy, Fast & Fun Notes, Short & Sweet
Cardstock: Sage Shadow, So Saffron, Pretty In Pink, Whisper White
Inks: Sage Shadow, So Saffron, Pretty In Pink
Accessories: Pink Taffeta Ribbon, Scallop Square Punch, Scalloped Edge Punch, Small & Large Oval Punches

I had so much fun that I thought I'd make up the same cards in a different colour theme & really love how this lot turned out so made a matching card folder.

Here is the folder opened, I also stamped some matching envelopes. You can find the instructions for the folder on Makeesha's website.
Stampset: Botanical Blooms
Cardstock: Old Olive, Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Apple Cied DSP (retired)
Ink: Old Olive, Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Chocolate Taffeta Ribbon, Vanilla Wide Grosgrain Ribbon
Punches: Scallop Square, Scalloped Edge, Large Oval, Small Oval

Oops, it's been awhile.....

... my excuse is that I have been on holidays :)
I was planning on posting afew things while I was away, but my computer was struck by lightning during a storm. Luckily it only affected my modem, however that was enough to prevent me from getting onto the internet. I will be back soon with some craft related pictures, but thought I'd share some from our holiday first.

Here we are dining alfresco at the resort (aka my parents place)

This pic of the kids & my MIL was taken at Fingal Head - 2 days later a man was bitten by a shark at the same beach!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mum & Dad got the kids tickets to Wet 'n' Wild & Seaworld for Christmas - I think it was the best present they got, as we had lots of fun. The above pic is Sam & I on the Kimakaze at Wet 'n' Wild - the look on his little face was priceless & had me in stitches the whole ride!

At Seaworld our favourite thing was the Dolphins show, it was amazing

We also loved the Viking's Revenge Flume Ride - I love this picture & the looks on all our faces :)
