Just a little catch up while on leave

Hi all,

Hope this finds you all well, this COVID business is only good for one thing, staying in doors and scrapbooking thats if you can't get away.  We were fortunate enough to have four days away at Killarney to celebrate my 60th and had so much fun.  I had some beautiful handmade cards given to me which really made my day!  I have attached some pics of the weekend for you to have a look at. It was very cold and windy so had the party in the camp kitchen which everyone decorated up while we were at Queen Mary Falls and it was just a lovely surprise.  I deleted the naughty word on my cake topper!



I am back on 1st October but wanted to let you know, all going well with Covid - that on 24th October commencing at about 1.30pm here at my place, I will be holding a cardmaking afternoon.  You will get to make four Christmas Cards, also the chance to win some lovely prizes and the cost of $30 includes all the supplies needed and afternoon tea.  I will posting an event soon on Facebook but for those of you who dont use facebook, please call me or text me on 0419721561 to book you space as soon as possible as we may be limited to 10 spaces.  

Well that's a quick update from me, we are off again on 4th September for a week to Rocky Point Retreat.  Looking forward to that.  Hopefully can start up card classes in October but again will have to wait and see what Covid does.  Cross your fingers!!  

Check out the mini catalogue that is out.  We will be making some cards with some of the products from this catalogue on 24th October.  Hope to see you there don't forget to book!!!

Take care and keep on Stamping

My first Christmas Card for 2020 all wrapped up

Hi all,

Have just made my very first Christmas card for this year.  I know it's early but every year I say I'm going to get in and get my cards made early and I never do.  So at least it's a start.  

This card is using the brand new Gift Wrapped stamp set and co-ordinating Bow builder Punch.  Simple and elegepant design using the brass foil sheets and gold embossing powder all on Very Vanilla cardstock.  The go,d string is from the Forever Greenery Trim  combo pack and Inhave just frayed the trim.  Loving that stuff!

Scrapbook Class with Tina and Pam

Hi all,


Had a lovely scrapbook class with Tina and her daughter Pam.  As they are fairly new to scrapbooking, we did a fairly simple and elegant page for the class.  Both turned out lovely and they were very happy with their results. 

Here are the lovely ladies with their beautiful pages.  


I am taking a break for two months August and September but card classes and scrapbooking classes will start back up in October so please check my Events Calendar here on my blog page for the classes (closer to the time) as I haven't yet arranged them as I am unsure of where the card classes are going to be held in October.  Hopefully we will be back to Round Table Coffee however the scrapbooking classes will always be held here at my place.  You can always contact me though on 0419721561 if you have any queries. 

Talk soon and remember to keep on Stampin!



Another Great Special Scrapbook Class

Hi Everyone,

Had another great Special Thursday Scrapbook class.  The ladies had fun using up some of my See a Silhouette DSP scraps and using the butterfly punch as well as the Positive Thoughts Butterfly stamp.    The pages turned out really well as they picked which photo they wanted and we mounted that onto Night of Navy and they were off gluing all the strips to wherever they wanted.  Then we added some butterflies punched out as well as some stamped butterflies using the Rock n Roll technique.  

Here's Lesley and Kelly putting it altogether.


And here's Lesley and Kelly showing off their masterpiece

It is always a fun class.  

My regular fortnightly scrapbook class is on Saturday 4th July I have a couple of spots left.  Starts at 10am cost of $20 includes one page everything supplied and refreshments.  Please message me or call on 0419721561.  I will need all bookings prior to Friday pm to allow a bit of time for prepping!!

Until next time keep on Stampin! 

A Special Class for some Special Ladies

Hi everyone!

Had another great fun class today with some special needs ladies and their carers.  I don't know who has the most fun, the carers, me or the girls!.  

We always do a scrapbook page as the girls are going to store all their gorgeous photos properly in albums with some beautifully decorated pages.  

Here is Kelly and I with her masterpiece today.  These classes are held every Thursday so if you are a carer and need something to do with you patient, please contact me to discuss details.  0419721561.  

Permission given to share photo.  

These are not all Stampin Up washi tapes that were used but using up what I have in my stash and it makes such an easy layout for the girls.  The arrows are washi tape stuck to cardstock and used my Triple Banner punch to punch them out.  A great effect.  

Until next time, stay safe, warm and well and keep on stampin!


Hello my lovelies,  

Had a lovely class today with Petra, Gail and Suzie.  Suzie is new to stampin but thoroughly enjoyed the class which is good to hear. Hope to see you at the next class Suzie!  All such lovely ladies.  

Here they are just as they finished their beautiful cards and all were different as I encourage my ladies to work their creative minds and put their own spin on the cards I show.  



If you would like to come along to any classes please check the calendar here on my blog page or call me on 0419721561 for any further information.  I can accommodate any type of class to suit your needs.  

Hope you all have a fantastic day and remember to keep on Stampin
