I am a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!

That's my excuse for not posting sooner!

I have been so excited about joining Stampin' Up! and playing with their fantastic products that my blog has been sadly neglected. I joined up in January and have been so busy ever since, making sample cards and organising demos and workshops it has been great. I have met some lovely new people, (Hi to the Venessa and the Brissy Demos) both online and in person which has also been fun. Stampin' Up! are having their annual convention here in Brisbane next month which I sadly won't be going to as I think I am maybe too new at this at this stage to get enough out of it, but I plan to be there next year - wherever it is.

It has been a great time to join Stampin' Up! The old catalogue is finishing at the end of this month, as is the Summer Mini Catalogue and the new catalogue which I already have in my grubby little hands is just fabulous. There are so many great new stamp sets, punches, rub-ons, loads of bling...... I could go on for hours. My initial wish list is so long I would have to add it on to the mortgage if I bought all those goodies, so I will have to cull it to a more reasonable quantity and be patient. Everything comes to those who wait (what nutbag said that).

The picture above is of a card I demoed at a recent stamp camp, it is my version of a beautiful card originally made by Trish Myers, thanks Trish. Sadly the stamps used in this card are retiring at the end of March which is devastating for me as they were my favourites. Never mind I'll have to buy some new
