Ngā mihi me te aroha nui mō te Rā Māmā!

Welcome to new catalogue day! I am excited as today is the release of the beautiful, new 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue, which has an amazing selection of new, coordinating product suites, exciting new stamp sets, and vibrant new colours. This catalogue has everything a paper-crafting stamper needs!

Need quick and easy greeting cards?  All you need is your favourite ink colours, a hardy medium like Shimmery White cardstock, a paintbrushblack ink, and some versatile stamps like the In the Moment stamp set, which has fabulous hand-sketched images plus all-purpose sentiments.

I love the combination of navy and apricot, so I went with a Night of Navy and Petal Pink colour combination to create this fun-sized Note Card using the fabulous Waves of the Ocean Collection...


about me

I am a stay-at-home mum with three teenagers and a wonderfully supportive husband.  My creative timeout is stamping, creating and giving handmade greeting cards.  When I was introduced to Stampin' Up!® over ten years ago, I quickly fell in love with their high-quality, coordinating products and loved creating with them.  Soon after, I became an Independent Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator and discovered that I also enjoy sharing my paper crafting knowledge with others and inspiring their stamping creativity.

I would love to hear from you.  Don't hesitate to contact me if you want the latest catalogue, need papercraft supplies (we ship nationwide), wish to attend an upcoming event, or would like information about joining my team.

Today our nation pauses for ANZAC Day to commemorate our brave soldiers killed in war and to honour our returned servicemen and women.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

For the Fallen/Ode of Remembrance (Laurence Binyon)

Ake ake kia kaha e!
Forever be strong!

Marching song of the New Zealand Army's 28th (Māori) Battalion (1939-1945)

I love this tranquil scene... it was created using the On the Horizon Bundle, Blending Brushes, and coordinating inks.

When we get back to traveling again, one of the places that I would dearly love to see is the Netherlands in springtime.  In the meantime, I can indulge my fantasies by creating an iconic dutch scene with the beautiful Tulip Fields stamp set and coordinating Windmill Fields Dies from the Flowering Fields Suite.

Once an instrument of torture, the cross is now a symbol of hope, love, and salvation.  May the miracle of Easter bring you and your family joy and happiness.
