I haven’t had a chance to get my Card Organiser Tutorial done today and it doesn’t look good for me to get the chance before Christmas.  But I have taken some measurements so for those that want to give it a go, this is what I used: Main box frame 1 piece of thick card […]

Card Organiser


My present for my mum and mother-in-law this year is handmade and something they will both appreciate.  My mum likes to make cards and give them and my mother-in-law is always giving cards too so I thought a card organiser would be just right for both of them. This style of organiser I saw on […]

Continuing with my paper flower addiction, I have found a new way to make a pretty flower.  I have used the Stampin’ Up! 5-Petal flower punch to make a very elegant lily type flower.  I saw this demonstrated at the recent Stampin’ Up! Regional Seminar in Brisbane and just had to have a go. I […]

Stampin Up had a Regional Conference on Saturday and I got to go along and be part of it.  It was great to meet up with other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators in the Brisbane region and stamp together and learn some really cool new things about stamping. I made new friends but also met up with […]

I love being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator as there are so many wonderful demonstrators out there in Australia now.  Because there were some many of us around the place a few demonstrators created an online group called ESAD which stands for Extra Special Aussie Demonstrators and invited all the demonstrators in Australia to join. This […]
