Day: January 5, 2009

I found the opportunity to create a card this afternoon and figured that while the house was quiet (very unusual) I would upload it for you.  A friend is sick in hospital and I wanted to send something to brighten her day a little.  This card has been created using the “Embrace Life” Stamp set from the Summer Mini and the matching Designer Series paper “Ginger Blossom”  The colours are

• Cameo Coral
• Groovy Guava
• River Rock and 
• Ruby Red

The sentiment is from the “Take Three” Set which from one of the cardmaking kits.

I used my paper snips to cut out the flower.  (Just as a sidenote- the paper snips would have to be my favourite pair of scissors!  A “must-have” item in any scrapbooking or cardmaking tool kit!)  I finished the flower off with a ruby red button from the Earth Elements pack.  I simply glued it in place using the Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue which is a new item to Stampin’Up! in the Summer Mini. I love this glue and find it is perfect for gluing items such as buttons, little embellishments, glitter and is acid free so safe to use on your scrapbook pages.   I don’t think I have mentioned yet that there is an error in the Summer Mini- the price of this glue is actually $7.95!  I can’t be sure that this glue will be available in the regular catalogue- so it is best to stock up while the Summer Mini is still current.

I’m hoping to complete a scrapbook page or two tonight! Fingers crossed I will be back tomorrow with some pages to show you.  In the meantime- don’t forget to sign up to my newsletter!

I know I haven’t had much to show on my blog lately.  I have been enjoying some “family time” and also doing some ‘behind the scenes” stuff. 

Firstly I have been asked to be a Design Team Member for the Journalling 101 Course. It is unrelated to Stampin’ Up! It is just on opportunity for me to complete some pages and work with the other design team members to help people with journalling on their own pages.   I am really looking forward to it as including Journalling on my scrapbook pages is something I am very passionate about.    Yesterday I completed my first scrapbook page for this course but…… I am unable to show it to you here.  If you think that the Online Journalling 101 Course is for you please follow the links in my sidebar for more information.  If you would like to sign up- please don’t forget to mention my name

This morning I have added a “Newsletter Sign Up” option to my Blog.  This will be a great way for me to keep my customers and readers up-to-date with Stampin’ Up! happenings, specials, offers and inspirational ideas.  I know that my blog serves that purpose to some degree but I would like to utilise a newsletter to supplement that.  Most importantly I would like to make special offers available to my SUBSCRIBERS ONLY.  To kick start for this month I am making a special offer available to subscribers to my newsletter.  If you want to find out more about this offer- then please “sign up” by entering your E-mail address in the newsletter sign ups section on the right hand side.  

I have lots of things I would like to create with the new Summer mini items AND the sale-a-bration stamp sets.  When time is on my side I am hoping to get creative.  Hopefully I will have some stuff to show you within the next couple of days- so please check back here soon!
