Last Saturday was the Stampin Up Heartfelt Event  held at the Melbourne Convention Centre.  What an awesome day we had!   So many wonderful new products about to be launched in our new 2012-2013 Annual Catalogue and then there is also the fabulous new Holiday mini.  Just wait until you see all the lovely things we will be able to create and make.  
This little dress is the card I made for the display board.  
We took photos of each other's cards to use as further inspiration.
For this card I used the new Designer Series Paper "Summer Smooches" that will be available 1st September.  This is thanks to my lovely daughter Rachell who said "that paper would look lovely as a little girl's dress!"  And so the idea was born!  I used the "Boho Blossom Punch" (119858) for the little flowers and then some rhinestones in the top three.  For the hem, I cut out the layers using my "Adorning Accents Edgelit Dies" (125595)and then embossed them with the "Textured Impressions Embossing Folders" (125601)  The bottom white layer is attached to the bottom back of the inside of the card so you see it from the front and when you open it is a lovely edge for the inside of the card.  For the collar I used the piece that was left after cutting the bottom with the edgelit.  I just pleated two pieces together, then ran a piece of sticky strip around the neckline and attached it.  The white ribbon is a piece of grosgrain simply tied in a bow.

We had  a make and take time where there were some great ideas done with the new stamp set called Clockworks.  Here are my finished projects for you to have a look at.

  Below are some photos of the individual projects for a closer look.
I am really pleased with the way my scrapbook page turned out.  I used a black and white photo of my Husband Tony and his little Sister Diane from their younger days in England on the beach.  I am still enjoying making rosettes with my "Simply Scored Scoring Tool" (122625)
 Love, love, love this little gift card holder and gift cards.  The flower is made using the "Fancy Flower Punch" (118073)!  The little gift card box is made from the "Two Tags Die"    I do have this die and now I will have another great use for it which is just awesome........
This birthday card is so adorable and the envelope has been made using the "Simply Scored Diagonal Plate" (125586)  so easy peasy and using Vellum Card makes it just a little more interesting.

Hope you enjoy looking at these projects and if you would like to have me demonstrate any at a party for you and your friends, or, place an order for any of the products you like then contact me.

Until next time..........

August is here and with it much anticipation for the posting of the Retirement list from our current 2011-2012 catalogue.  These items will only be available for August and only until stock runs out.  Some of our favorites are going to make way for many new ones,our new 2012-2013 catty that will be available from 1st September.  We will also have a new Holiday mini that starts 1st September.  So excited..........

Check out the retiring products by clicking the links below and remember if there is anything you would like, just contact me to place your order, you do not have to have a party to place an order I can order individually for you.


I have been adding some pages to my album and here is one I made using the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper.  I also had fun making the flowers using my Blossom Punch.  I got inspiration for this page from a website and I am sorry I don't remember where, and I have made a few changes to it.   This beautiful little girl is Allegra May, my first great niece.  She is so adorable and I love the way the photographer has highlighted her beautiful eyes.  It matches up perfectly with the Island Indigo card stock.

I am going to our Regionals this weekend and so I am really looking forward to a day full of wonderful inspiration that I will share with you next time.

Until then, happy Stampin!
