Price Increases


I mentioned a few posts ago that my Children’s Teepees will be going up in price soon.  I’m not too happy about it but it is a necessary evil.  And not only is it my Teepees increasing in price, it will be everything.  And some product lines will also be discontinued. So if you want it, you […]

We’re up to part 3, the final video, in the Starter Kit Techniques videos.  If you missed the previous videos, simply go back to Part 1 or Part 2 to watch how easy it is to use your Stampin’ Up! products. To finish off the series, here is the third video: And one final reminder […]

I hope you liked the first video in this three part series.  I did 🙂 Were you inspired to use the techniques demonstrated?  Or did you make the projects that were shown?  If you missed it, go back and check it out. But first have a look at the second video from Stampin’ Up! to […]

Free Class


I was contacted a few months ago about doing a card class at a library in the area.  And Thursday was the day of the class.  It was lovely to meet the ladies that came along and to hear about what they love about card making and crafting.  They loved it too and it’s going […]

Joining Stampin’ Up! as a demonstrator is fantastic but it can seem rather daunting. You receive a wonderful bundle of products but it can be a little overwhelming to know where to start.  So Stampin’ Up! have released three great videos that showcase these products and demonstrate what you can do with your new starter […]



Just yesterday I made a logo / label for Jungle Monkey Kids (this was something that was already in the pipeline before I made my decision to focus on other creative areas).  I’ve never designed a logo / label before.  And this is how it turned out.  What do you think?

I’ve made a really hard decision and have decided not to do any more blog makeovers or headers.  I love doing them and helping others but at this point I want to focus more on my teepees and other craft.  I do have a couple of loose ends to tie up but basically the “Party” […]

Blog makeover


I’ve been working on a blog makeover and a blog header/banner for a fellow stampin’ up! demonstrator.  She loves fun so we thought we’d go with a party theme.  Here’s a sneak peek: I got to play with some of my new products from the new Idea Book & Catalogue from Stampin’ Up!.  And I absolutely […]

Girls Teepee


This is the girls teepee that was on display at Billy Angel. I say “was” on display because it has already been sold!  And the boys teepee too.  Both sold the first day 🙂  Yippee.  Now to make two more. I’ve decided that this style is going to be my standard teepee style:  Denim doors […]

If you can believe it, I’ve never used the colour Real Red from Stampin’ Up!.  And now that I’ve used it, I don’t know why I haven’t used it sooner. A friend of mine, Deena, and I are doing a class together for a group of ladies and needed to come up with a card […]
