Well I have lots of exciting news today!
Firstly, Stampin' Up! have released their Last Chance List from the 2009-2010 catalogue. This is very exciting as you have the opportunity to purchase some of those wonderful items from your wish list at reduced prices! Click here to see the full list of retiring products and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to place your order. I can have your order shipped anywhere in Australia from $5.95 shipping. Don't forget that this month is also your last chance to purchase any retiring cardstock or inks of colours that we are farewelling from our range. Don't miss out, a couple of items have already disappeared, never to be seen again!
My other announcement is that my lovely friend Mikaela has decided to join Stampin' Up! as a demonstrator! Mikaela, it's so lovely to have you on board and I look forward to spending more time stamping together and sharing our love of stamping with others!
If you are interested in finding out more about becoming a demonstrator with Stampin' Up! then just shoot me an email as I would be happy to chat with you about how it can work for you. Some people like to run workshops and make a business of it, whilst others enjoy having access to a great discount on Stampin' Up! products as a hobby demonstrator.
And finally to let you know about a workshop I will be running next Saturday with my upline Paula Fuller. The workshop will be held on Saturday August 7th from 1.30-3.30pm in Edmonton, Cairns. Contact me for full details. Cost is $5 to make two cards and enjoy afternoon tea with us! Please rsvp to me by Thursday August 5th if you would like to join us!
Happy Stamping! Love, Claire

I have used textured Not quite navy as the background with Baja breeze. The DSP is from Urban garden. I am really loving my little Alphabet dies for the Big shot! So handy for scrapbooking.
I love these photos. Ethan and Levi were just walking along the street hand in hand. Ethan was being such a good big brother and Levi wasn't resisting the guidance. Totally cute.
Here is a close up of the little pocket I made to hide my journalling.

I have used the Loads of love stamp set which is a set I really enjoy using (borrowed from friends!) and have had my eye on for some time now. So when it came up as one of the Two step stamping sets on special this month I just couldn't say no! It's always fun to ink up a new stamp set and I just love this little Christmas tree that sits in the back of the pick up truck. I am hoping for some new accessory stamps for this set when the new cattie comes out but we'll have to wait and see....

Today I have a couple of cards to share with you. Both are inspired by the challenge over at Just Add Ink which is to Just add embossing. The first card uses two of my favourite colours, Not quite navy and Baja breeze. I was in awe of Danielle Daws take on this beautiful technique using clear embossing and brayering so I had to give it a go myself.
Project 2 supplies:
CS: Really rust, Handsome hunter, Mellow moss, Apricot appeal. Ink: Versamark, Apricot Appeal, Handsome hunter, Mellow moss. Stamps: Weathered (background stamp), Best yet (hostess set), Organic Grace (hostess set). Accessories: Hemp twine, stampin' dimensionals, heat tool, clear embossing powder.
Please remember that at the end of August many colours will be retiring with Stampin' Up. Please check with me to see which colours are leaving us and what you need to stock up on!

Oh dear, it has been quite some time since I have visited blog land! I am soooo sorry for leaving you all hanging although I know you won't have been bored as there are many wonderful sites out there for you to gain some inspiration from!
I am nearly 24 weeks pregnant now and taking iron supplements and feeling much, much better! So I am slowly creeping back into the world of stamping (and reality TBH). I had a lovely stamp a stack with a group of girls the other day which was just wonderful - great way to get myself back into it! (Thanks Anne!!)
I wanted to make sure you all knew about the fabulous offer on this month with Stampin' Up! They are offering a 20% discount on several of their two step stamping sets. This was one of the first things I just fell in love with when I started using SU products and you can buy some of them at 20% off - including two brand new sets in our Autumn/Winter Mini catalogue!
To view which stamp sets are on special please click here. Please just email me with any questions or to place an order.
If you have ever considered opening your own Stampin' Up account (ever drooled over that starter kit on the inside back cover of the catalogue) well now is a great time to sign up - there is currently a further 20% discount off the starter kit but only if you join by July 31st. Click here for more info on this super offer. Remember you can just sign up to receive the kit but if you wish to run workshops and be a demonstrator I am very willing to support you every step of the way. Any questions, just email me!
Thanks girls for your listening ear! Now that I am re-entering the atmosphere I shall post some creations for you all to see very soon!
