Introducing ... Project Life by Stampin' Up!

You may already have heard the news - if you're a Project Life scrapper, you are sure to have!

In April 2014, Stampin' Up! and Becky Higgins announced that they were partnering up to give you the Project Life products you love in the Stampin' Up! colours you also love!

From June 10, you will be able to order Project Life by Stampin' Up! products through my Online Store ...

Now, I'm no scrapbooker - you can probably guess this by just going through a few random blog posts her at StampStuff.  But Project Life is the kind of scrapping I can get behind!  It's all made so easy for you - pick the photos you want to display, select a few journalling cards and accessories, put it all together in the special pocket pages and you're done!  We all have boxes of photographs that are a pain to go through - imagine having a bunch of beautifully presented books that you made yourself, ready to share with friends and family.

Some New Product Show & Tell!

In my previous post, I might have mentioned the 2014 Stampin' Up! Inspire Create Share event (otherwise known as Convention) which this year was held in my home town of Melbourne.  Just because it was here in Melbourne didn't mean that we didn't use it as an excuse to stay in a hotel and hang out with our friends for a few days :-)

Here's the view from our 14th floor balcony on City Road (taken while I played with the panorama function on my my ipod).  You can't say that Melbourne (well, Southbank) isn't pretty from this angle :-)

One of the highlights of Convention is the new products we get to play with, and the make & takes we do with them.  Historically, I have rarely finished the make & takes at the actual event, preferring to bring the half finished items home and put them somewhere safe, to be rediscovered about six months later.  However, I am proud to announce that this time around, I finished all but one of the projects!  My excuse for the unfinished one was that it was a scrapbook page, and you really need photos to finish those off.

So without further ado, here is the first (two) of my finished projects:

This is a pair of cards made with a new stamp set (available from July 1) called Kinda Eclectic.  The instructions and supplies were enough to make two cards, one "basic" and the other "stepped up".  You can also see a few new colours here - four of the 2014-15 In Colors of Hello Honey (the sunburst and punched out flowers), Mossy Meadow (the leaf sprays), Tangelo Twist (the butterfly) and Blackberry Bliss (on the striped paper).

The honeycomb background on the second card was made by inking the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with some Crumb Cake ink, then pressing gently on the base card.

Come back soon for a peek at some more new stuff!

Going for the title of World's Worst Blogger

... although I'm sure there are worse bloggers than me, I bet they don't suffer the pangs of guilt I do :-)

Yes, I'm still alive.  Still stamping (a little).  And still excited about the new Stampin' Up! offerings.

It's that time of year again, when old stock retires to make way for shiny new toys.  The Retirement List is now up (click here to head over to my Online Store to see all the retiring products).  Some product is discounted (but not all).

Remember that these retiring products are only available while stocks last.

The new 2014-15 Catalogue will go live from July 1, 2015.  I've seen it - you'll love it!  If you want a copy of your own, please drop me an email.

I have a little bit of sneak peek stuff here with me, which I will be posting over the next few days.  We've just come back from the 2014 Inspire Create Share event (ie. the Stampin' Up! Convention) and as always were treated to three days of presentations, playing and fun - as well as a bunch of giveaways (SU are very generous to their demonstrators and guests at these events).

Speaking of fun, this is three of my friends rocking out to Bjorn Again, who were the entertainment at the Awards Night after party this year :-)  We had the Best Night Ever
