Saturday was our Perth Regionals event – a great day where we get to catch up with other demonstrators from around WA for some stamping, chatting and catching up!
I used my new *favourite* stamp set Artistic Etchings to create my swaps for the day and I made two versions of the same design – one using Real Red & Basic Black and the other using Baja Breeze & Soft Suede:
I managed to make about 50 swaps and got busy madly swapping when I arrived at the Convention Centre, so I received around the same number of lovely swaps from other demonstrators! Here is a pic of all the amazing ideas I received:
It’s so lovely to enjoy a day where we get fantastic ideas and inspiration from a range of different people, and we get to catch up with other demonstrators and stamping frends and our fantastic team of girls!It’s always hard to get all the stamping done when we get to catch up with the girls – there’s always more chatting than stamping!!
Here’s a photo of our ‘Klass Act’ team:
Here is a pic of me with the amazing Sarah Klass – my upline and inspiration:
Plus one of my good friends – the lovely Louise:

I am loving playing with my new products from the new catalogue and one of my absolute favourites has been the Newsprint DSP – I am going to need to order a new pack soon, because I have already used up some of the designs!
I made an engagement card for a friend last week that featured the music sheet from the Newsprint DSP with a quote from the Hostess Level 3 Occasional Quotes stamp set.
The music notes are lovely for a romantic card and also rather appropriate for the couple who are both very musical! I added a flourish from Baroque Motifs in Riding Hood Red and then stamped it off on the background of the quote as well.
I have some more projects to show using new catalogue products so I’ll share those in the next few days!
Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Occasional Quotes

I had some fun playing with my Sale-a-Bration stamps last week and quickly created a few simple cards using the Happy Moments & Whimsical Words stamps. As I started stamping and watercolouring the images, I realised that I could put them together to create a set of co-ordinating cards using some of my favourite colours – Regal Rose, Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie and Certainly Celery.
Here is the present/ birthday card:
Each of the cards feature a different image from the Happy Moments set which are stamped in Basic Black and watercoloured using my Aquapainters. I love this set because it has 4 great images that are useful for any occasion! And they are just begging to be watercoloured!!
Here is the birdcage card which could be a great “just because” card or to cheer someone up!
The main images are punched out using the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and the large scalloped circle is created by punching out a Scallop Circle and then following this technique shown here on Marelle Taylor’s blog to spread it around the circle and make it even bigger!
Here is the birthday cake card:
And the last one is the flower card – a nice one for a “Thankyou” or “Thinking of you” card:

I was able to participate in Keesh’s Sketch Challenge this week (Yay!!) when I was after some inspiration for a couple of cards I needed to make! One of them was a card for a friend’s wedding and when I saw Keesh’s Sketch, I thought it would work perfectly! I actually was so excited about this sketch and its possibilities that I made 2 cards for the Challenge!!
This was the first card I made and I wanted something elegant so I went for my Bella Bleu DSP and used this soft colour combo of Kraft, Not Quite Navy & Very Vanilla (with some Baja Breeze) for my card. I used the heart stamp from the Always set and added some Kraft Taffeta ribbon and some Half Pearls.
For my second card, I went for something a little bit more fun and girly while still being a wedding card!
I featured the lovely Sweet Always DSP and the colour combo of Regal Rose, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip & Pink Pirouette. I used the Always heart again and coloured it with markers, and then put it together with some White Grosgrain Ribbon and Clear Rhinestones.
Sorry I havent been back with the Sale-a-Bration cards I promised! They are almost ready to go, but I have been so crazy busy that I haven’t had a chance to get them finished and ready for the blog! I will be back here soon to show them to you… I promise!
