    I was asked to make a Retro Birthday Card recently – eeeeeek!!  I don’t own any retro crafting goods.  THANK GOODNESS for MDS huh?

    Using MDS I downloaded the Retro Fresh Digital DSP, created a couple of big photo boxes, and simply dragged the DSP pattern that I wanted into the Photo Boxes.  I then saved the page as a JPG, and printed it out on Very Vanilla Cardstock. – Instant Paper when you’re in a bind.

    I’ve also used MDS and my e-cutter to create the name.  I’ve gone into my ecutter program and merged the Alphabet Soup Punches from MDS to create and cut out the letters.

    No sponging, no bling, simple layout (Mojo Sketch), and I think I’ve succeeded with the retro look.

  • March15th

    I’m back with another Around the World Sketch Challenge :)

    Here’s what we are playing with for the rest of March


    I’ve flipped my sketch upside down, and have created a card rather than a scrapbook layout.

    Another Great Year

    These aren’t colours I’d normally play with, but I have some Washi Tape from the Retro Fresh Suite, so I thought I’d push my comfort zone.  I originally had it on a Baked Brown Sugar card base, but my son thought it looked better on the Tangerine Tango.  I’ve also covered one of the Essential Wooden Elements Arrows in Washi Tape.  I think it would work well for a teenage boy.

    Another Great Year

    Card Recipe:

    All Products from Stampin’ Up!

    • Stamp Set: Another Great Year
    • Card: Tangerine Tango, So Saffron, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White

  • March14th

    What a fun update this afternoon on our Demo Site :)


    Have you ever wished you could stamp with the folks at Stampin’ Up!’s home office? Your wish is granted–and your opportunity is coming soon! Here’s the basic rundown.

    Who: You! And feel free to invite your customers, your downline, anyone who wants to play along.

    What: This is a live, streaming event where we will stamp with the All Wrapped Up Bundle on page 6 of the Sale-A-Bration brochure. Order the bundle so you have it in time to have it at the event. Our projects will also feature the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper, so you may want to order that as the free Sale-A-Bration product. Then choose your preferred device–computer, tablet, smart phone or even hook up your computer to your TV*–and tune in to learn some fun new things to do with the bundle!

    When: 26 March 2014, at 5:00 PM, 7:00 PM and 10:00 PM (all times listed are AEDT). We’ll demonstrate the same projects each time, so choose the one that’s best for you.

    Where: You don’t even have to leave home. Come to at your chosen time and be prepared to stamp! We’ll also award door prizes to random participants.

    Why: So many occasions are coming–Easter, Mother’s Day and more–and we want to help you be ready.

    Hope you can make it. We’d love to have you join us!

    *Never hooked up your computer to a TV before? Do a search on YouTube and you’ll find loads of instructional videos. Make sure to do a practice run before 26 March so you don’t miss out on any of the party.


    SOOOOOOO:  Exciting don’t you think?  Here’s a look at the bundle that will be used.

    All Wrapped Up Bundle

    You’ll need to order:

    • Gumball Green Inkpad
    • Smoky Slate Marker
    • Tag a Bag Bundle
    • Accessory Kit x 2
    • Tag a Box Bundle
    • Bermuda Bay Taffeta Ribbon
    • Crushed Curry Chevron Ribbon
    • Oh, Goodie! Stamp Set

    The totals are $100.45 for Wood or $96.45 for Clear which will allow you to get the Sweet Sorbet DSP for FREE

    So not only will you get to stamp with SU, but you’ll also get to stamp with ME :)   Don’t forget everyone who orders over $50 this month also gets my Virtual Stamp Club Video’s AND if you use the Hostess Code 4TD7AU7W you’ll also get a free gift :)


    I know I’ll be joining in, will you?
