Flowers of Friendship In Color Thank You Card

Welcome to new catalogue day! It's an exciting day because today is the release of the beautiful, new 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue, which has an amazing selection of new coordinating product suites, exciting new stamps, and pretty new colours. This catalogue has everything a paper-crafting stamper needs!

How cute is this!  The very cute images in the Woodland Wonder stamp set coordinate and stack on top of each other to create a very tall tree of critters, so a very tall slimline card was perfect for this children's birthday card.

Here is another Mother's Day project to inspire you.  This lovely gift box coordinates with the slimline Mother's Day card that also uses the beautiful Fine Art Floral Suite...

Today we mark the anniversary of the 1915 Gallipoli campaign, honouring those that have gone before us and those men and women who are still serving so that we can enjoy the freedoms we often take for granted.


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.

Slimline cards are so simple to create are a fun shape to work with.  Just begin with half an A4 piece of cardstock then, instead of scoring and folding like a standard card, score and fold the other direction!  This is my slimline Mother's Day card using some of the gorgeous products from the Fine Art Floral Suite...

At the beginning of May, I will have been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator for 12-years.  When I began this creative journey, my youngest was a little 3-year-old and now he has just turned 15 and is so much taller than me!  Slimline cards are a tall, fun shape and seemed appropriate for my son's 15th birthday card.  This masculine birthday card was created using the World of Good Suite...

Back in August last year, I saw a gorgeous, eclectic card created to congratulate Steffi Helmschrott for achieving 2M career-to-date sales.  The design had a fun surprise pull-out, which I have recreated using the beautiful Sand & Sea Suite.  First, here is the front of this friendship birthday card...

This Easter, pause to remember that the empty cross is a reminder that Jesus has risen and that gives us hope and a future.  Wishing you and your family a joy-filled Easter.
