10 June 2014 – Today is the day!!

Yes, today is the day that you can start making your scrapbooking life so much easier!! Stampin’ Up! have partnered with Becky Higgins Project Life to bring us the most amazing line of co-ordinating products!!

From today, you can purchase the Everyday Adventure Project Life Card Collection, the matching accessory pack, journaling pens, corner punch, cards and labels framelits (woo hoo), a variety pack 12″ x 12″ Project Life photo pocket pages, and of course the Day to Day Photopolymer Stamp set and Point & Click Photopolymer stamp set.

It’s such an easy system to use. You just slip your photos into the pockets, add a couple of cards, do a spot of journalling and voila, you’re done!! Of course, if you want to do more, there’s lots to choose from. I like the accessory packs as it gives you a few choices but not too many.

Here’s a video by Shelli Gardiner and Becky Higgins about Project Life. I have to agree with Becky that one of the main reasons I don’t do much scrapbooking as it becomes too much for me. And that’s why Project Life suits me to a T.

If you would like to order any of these great products, just go to my online store, here or send me an email at

Or would you like to receive a discount on all future purchases of Project Life? You can join my team of Paper and Stamps Addicts for only $85 this month and receive $90 worth of products. If you would like to know more about becoming a demonstrator, please contact me at or if you are keen, you can sign up online here.

I’m about to dive into my first page, so I’ll be sharing it soon.

Happy PLing!!


29 May 2014 – Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea Fundraiser

On 17 May, my downline and friend, Margaret and I held an Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea event. Well, actually we did an afternoon tea, but it still counts!!

We had a great time!! We had a goody bag for everyone on arrival. Stampin’ Up! kindly donated a box of products which we used as part of a silent auction. Margaret and I each created 2 projects and the ladies enjoyed making them.

And mostly importantly, we raised nearly $800!! And if you would still like to donate, you can go to my fundraising page with the Cancer Council here.

Here’s some photos from the day. If you would like to view more, you can check out my Facebook album, here.

7 May 2014 – The things we do for Love!!

As you may know, I work with my fabulous sister, Sue, on a series of Christian Women’s conferences called She is.. You can check out the website here for this year’s dates! Each year, we have a different theme, and this year’s theme is Hope.

We also work hard to make sure the decorations are beautiful and make the ladies feel special. So, I have been madly making roses for our table decorations. Luckily, Stampin’ Up! have made this easy (or should I say easier!!) by bringing out the Spiral Roses die. So far, I’ve made 200 roses but I’ve still got about 400 to go!! The things we do for Love!!

Our first conference was at Biloela, just last weekend. I didn’t get to go but I got the girls to take a picture of my roses. My sister and my mum painted lots of jars and they look so pretty!!

biloela roses

So I cut out lots of roses using the spiral roses die in every shade of pink that Stampin’ Up! has. I then used the bone folder to break the fibers of the card stock and make it easier to roll the flower. I use a pair of tweezers to start off rolling the flower but I take it out part the way through otherwise you tend to roll it too tightly. I found that if I rolled them and left it for a day before sticking the base down, I got a nicer rose. Otherwise I got a few rosebuds!! To stick the base, I put a strip of sticky strip as it holds really well. I found glue to be messy and took too long to stick, and snail just doesn’t hold enough.

I used the Blossom punch to create the petals. I then used the bone folder to curl the petals. I punched a small hole in the middle so that the stem of florist wire could be poked through and then hot glued it all together.

Repeat 600 times and I’m done!!


2 May 2014 – It’s on it’s way!!
