Stampin’ Write Markers – Delightful Daffodil; Regal Rose; Certainly Celery
I usually put a piece of copy paper cut to size and folded, inside the card for a sentiment or message. I did this and then used the scallop punch to punch out the bits of white paper too. Below is a picture, that I hope shows you how I did that. I usually adhere the paper to the side of the card that may have ribbon ends, brad backs etc on it. I feel it just tidies the card up for a more professional look.
I promised you all a sneak peek at some of the prizes that I’m giving away for the Blog Candy. So here is a very quick peek at them. I’ll post more details and pictures tomorrow. (Did a 12 hour day at work and I’m a bit tired :))
These are just 4 of the cards I have made as part of the Blog Candy prizes. I’ll show you the rest during the week. I don’t want to spoil the surprise for the winners.
This is Stampin’ Up!®’s BIG annual sale. For every A$100. you spend between the above dates (before shipping & handling), you will earn a free stamp set. This new catalogue has some beautiful new stamp sets exclusive to this special campaign only.
Now A$300 is a lot to spend on stamping and scrapbooking products. I agree but read below the ways you could reach your A$300 and more easily:
- Book a demonstration before 31st March – I come to your place and you invite some family and friends over and provide light refreshments and a place to sit. I will do the rest for you. We will do a walk through the catalogues and I will demonstrate some of Stampin’ Up!®’s fantastic products and we will do a make-‘n’-take card. As hostess you will receive a small gift from me as well. How easy is that? Contact me today to book your workshop.
- Hold a catalogue party at work, playgroup, with your friends, family and neighbours. The 2010 – 2011 Catalogue and Idea Book is just A$10.95 plus I will give you a couple of the Mini-Catalogues and Sale-A-Bration Catalogues. Get orders over A$300 (before shipping and handling) and I will reimburse you the cost of the catalogue. Another easy way to get yourself free stamps and product.
- Order a Big Shot through me before 31st March and bring your order up to A$200 before shipping and handling) and you will be eligible to choose 2 free stamp sets from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue and I will pay your shipping and handling

Blog Candy Winners announced shortly
Just a quick post to everyone. I will announce the Blog Candy winners on the weekend. I’m sorry the announcement is late but the temperatures have been unbearable here, so I haven’t spent much time on line now I’m back at work and no time at all creating as my studio bears the brunt of the heat.
Now don’t forget about Sale-A-Bration – scroll down to see the special offers I have going and don’t forget you get to choose a free set of stamps for every A$100 (before s&H) spent from either the Idea Book & Catalogue &/or The Summer Mini Catalogue.
I have a few dates left for workshops or demos before the end of March (when Sale-A-Bration ends), so contact me today.
Now the bow (I have Lee Conroy’s Bow Maker) I made in Real Red (fairly case match to Poppy Parade and I didn’t have the Poppy Parade ribbon with me.) I left a long and a short end when I made the bow. The shorter end I threaded through the slot on the white tag only and adhered it to the back of the white tag. Now this is a bit fiddly but persevere and you’ll get it. The long end of the ribbon went through the slot of both tags and out the back. Now stick your tags together, then stick it where you want on your card (you could use dimensionals if you like). Now the long end of the ribbon needs to be adhered to the card and taken up and over both pieces of card. I put a little adhesive under each bow loop to help it stay vertical on the tag.
