Last Friday everyone was invited to my place for the annual Occasions Catalogue Launch Party. In addition to the displays of the gorgeous new products and fun ideas from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue, there was creating, games, and prizes! Thank you everyone for coming along and making the day so enjoyable.

IT'S HERE! The 2019 Occasions Catalogue has arrived and it is whimsical, fun, and full of inspirational ideas for birthdays, Valentine's Day, weddings, anniversaries, Easter, and more!

Today I am celebrating New Year's Day by sharing some sneak peeks with you from the soon-to-be-released 2019 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration! This Hello Beautiful card was created using the fabulous new Butterfly Gala stamp set and coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch. The images were stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then coloured using Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends...

Today we carefully packed away and stored all our pretty Christmas decorations, ready to pull out again next year. But don't relegate your Christmas stamps and accessories to the same fate. Take a careful look at the imagery and words in your Christmas stamp sets, critically look at patterns and colours on your Christmas accessories, and you may be surprised to realise that most of your products can be used year-round. Take the Festive Farmhouse Suite for example, these homely products have lovely imagery, patterns, and colours that can be used for projects beyond Christmas. Here's two sweet thank you cards that use the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set and coordinating Farmhouse Framelits Dies...

Merry Christmas

The brief for my Christmas cards this year was that they needed to be simple, as I needed to create quite a lot of them, but needed some texture and a little wow-factor. To simplify the process I decided on a single Christmas card design and then used tools like the Stamparatus to mass produce them for posting to friends, family, and colleagues.
