Stamping projects...

I really should be doing the washing and cleaning up that HUGE pile of dishes in the kitchen (that has grown from the baking frenzy I had over weekend) but instead I am sitting here posting some more stuff for you to see from the team stamping day.
We did 3 projects which all used products from the new Spring Mini Catalogue, which you can view here. They were...

A card: using the Summer Picnic DSP and the Die Cut blooms. (Fresh summer/citrus colours and designs).

A gift card pocket: Using the gorgeous Holiday Harmony DSP and Season of Joy stamp set.
This is another view, with the pocket open. Isn't this a great idea for putting a christmas gift card into instead of a plain envelope!
And we also did a scrapbook page but as I'm not a scrapbooker I didn't complete one of those. I think that I would give Sarah a huge shock if I actually did a scrapbook page!!! Maybe I will attempt one in the near future. I do have a LOT of photos of my 4 girls so watch this space.

Cleaning, cleaning....

While my eldest daughter was at kindy today and my other 3 girls were sound asleep I spent an hour tidying up my half of our office. I am sorting out my cards because I have just recieved the album that I ordered online to put all of my cards in so that they can be displayed at any future workshops.
I love the album and will take a photo of it over the next couple of days to show you.
Anyway, while I was cleaning up I found another swap that was given to me at the team stamping day, that I hadn't posted. Oops!!
This swap was made by a lovely fellow Leo, Kylie.

I am so sorry that I didn't post it in my previous entry Kylie! Better late than never I suppose! It's amazing what I find when I actually tidy up!!

Stamping Day Swaps....

As I have mentioned in a previous post, we recently had our team stamping day and these are photos of the swaps that some of the girls gave to me on the day.
I am not a very good team player because I didn't manage to get any swaps done but these gorgeous girls gave me one of theirs anyway!!

This first one is a Sarah Klass original.

The second one is made by the very talented Jasmine.

The third one is made by the very lovely Leanne.

And I was also given a fantastic chocolate holder that was made by Chantelle but my darling little 2 year old twins got their hands on that one so you can check out what they looked like on her blog here.

Aren't they all just stunning?!?!

I will have to be more organised and get some swaps done for Regionals!!

"h" is for Hayley.

I seem to be posting a few cards lately that have been made for me by other people and this is one no exception!
This card was made for my youngest daughter's recent baptism by my dear friend, Paula.
Paula attended Sarah's team stamping day with me recently, where she learnt a bit about 'On Board Accents' and this is the first time that she has used them to make a card.
I think that you have done a fab job Paula and I am sure that Sarah would be very proud of you!!
The second picture is of the gift that came with this beautiful card.
It is "The Magic Pudding Coin Collection" which is a collection of the Australian coins that were minted this year.
I thought that it was such a lovely gift idea to give someone a collection of coins from the year that their new baby was born (as a treasured keepsake)....that I just had to share it with you.
Thanks for visiting.

Welcome little one.

This first card and gift box are from Sarah Klass as a gift for my newest little addition to the family.
This little gift was one of the gifts that Sarah handed out at the team stamping day. (You can check out the other gifts that she gave to the other team members on her blog here).
The box contains a little pair of pink baby Ugg Boots and a quilted pink baby beanie.
And the gorgeous card reads....

"You have the most divine little (OK....big!!) family and we love that we get to call you our friends. And not to forget a HUUUGE welcome to the sweet little bundle chose a fabulous family little always....Sair, Tim, Hannah and Sophie."

What can I say! Gorgeous words. Gorgeous team leader. Gorgeous person. Gorgeous friend!
I hope that you like the card and box as much as I do.

I'm back....

Hi everyone....I am back! Thanks for hanging in there with me over the last couple of weeks! It has been chaotic here but things are slowly settling down now and are finally getting back to normal.
Hayley's baptism was a really great day and went off without a hitch. It was a beautiful sunny day here in Perth for the baptism and the gorgeous weather has continued until now and looks like it will continue for the next week! We have had temperatures in the low 20's and sunshine, sunshine, sunshine!!!
Thanks to those of you who wished me a "Happy Birthday." I had a great birthday this year and was VERY spoilt by my wonderful husband and my beautiful girls.
As I have mentioned in a previous post, I have lots of things to post from our team's stamping day and a few other little projects for you to it's back to business now and I will post the first one tonight!

Ok, so I know that I have been "missing in action" lately but it seems that it has been CRAZY hectic around here!
Not only did I celebrate my birthday (see previous post) but my team leader, Sarah Klass, held our quarterly team stamping day, which was a huge success, and I seem to be forever buried under a pile of washing and housework here at home!!!
I have some great projects that we made on the team stamping day to share with you but I won't be posting them for a few days because I am going to be really busy this week as well.
We are having Hayley's baptism on Sunday and my very best friend, Lee-anne, who I have known since I was 12 years old (I just turned 37, so it's been a few years!!) is flying in from Tasmania to stay with us for a week because she is going to be my darling, little Hayley's God Mother.
So I hope that you can wait a couple of days and I promise that I will have some new stuff up here for you to see, as soon as I can.

(I wish I was more like Makeesha. I don't know how she runs a home, with 4 children and manages to post multiple projects regularly!!! How do you do it Keesh? You are amazing!).

Happy birthday to me!

Can you believe that yesterday was the 1st August already?!?!? Well I can't! Where has this year gone?
Not only does the 1st of August signify "The Horses Birthday" (the official day when all horses around the world celebrate their birthday) and the launch of the Spring Mini Catalogue (view catalogue here), but it was also my birthday and I wanted to share with you this beautiful card that my good friend, Paula, made for me.
I had a wonderful day yesterday thanks to Paula and another friend of mine, Jodi. Because my darling husband was at work all day, Paula and Jodi hatched a plan to come over and surprise me with lunch, cake and chocolate. They had even organised lunch for my kids so I didn't have to do anything except sit back and relax, chat and eat loads of chocolate. I really had a fabulous thanks girls, you are treasured friends and thankyou for my beautiful card Paula.
