Have done lots...

... but have nothing to show for it!
Feels like I'm getting nowhere fast. Been sorting out my super huge stash as I really can't keep all of it *sigh* so will be picturing and adding to eBay and maybe some of the new stuff I could post as blog candy... watch this space!
I will plod on and hopefully have a much more interesting post for you all soon.

So, the SU! mini catalogue isn't officially launched until the 1st of April but it's only a couple of days away and I know you've all been very patient so here you go!

Enjoy =)

It will also be located on the side bar for easy access.
Stay posted for samples soon.

Other than not getting anything done I've managed to have a play with my shot glasses but not got pictures at the moment (sorry - I'm rubbish aren't I?!) Will share soon.

I've had a trip to Ikea and have found something fab-u-lous!!! I feel a mini tutorial coming on... They are so easy I hope you'll love them as much as I do.

Off crafting topic, I'm getting so impatient for my holiday to Florida, how am I expected to contain my excitement until May?? I don't think it's possible - imagine all those US shops! Michael's, target... oooooo!!!!! And the clothes shops too, of course! (my, that's a lot of exclamation marks I'm using...)
I'm putting off going holiday shopping because I will start packing , I'm notorious for that lol. And my lists, colour co-ordinated... I'm such a geek haha!

That's enough of my ramblings for one post, hope you all have a glorious weekend.

Thanks for stopping by,
take care x

Wedding favors and a blog award

A big thank you to Aimes for giving me this fab award. It really made my day to have received this so thank you Aimes!

Now for the hard bit, I have to nominate 10 blogs - how can I choose?

Ok, here goes:
1. Bekka - My faboo SU! mummy who is just so so supportive :)
2. FrenchieJo - Super creative and all round fab blog!
3. Pink Elephant - I know technically this may not count as its a challenge blog but it has provided me with so much inspiration!
4. Elaine - You really do need to check out this blog. I love those magic boxes!
5. Tara - Again, another blog that has provided me with some much needed inspiration at times.
6. Debbie - Very talented lady and full of ideas!
7. Nicole - Free templates! Who doesn't love that?
8. Charisma cards - Again it's another challenge blog with great sketches
9. Joanne - This lady can show you how to make the most amazing paper flowers.
10. Paula - Last but by no means least this is another of my favourite blogs.

So, now that's done I wanted to show you some favors I made for my mum's wedding in June last year just before she moved to Dubai. I had a ball making these and have been itching to make more ever since!

Below are some cake boxes, we actually had them on a circle stand and placed the wedding cake on top in the centre. It looked so fab having that as a base to the cake!

And for the favors, I made these little bag-a-lopes. I found the template on Split Coast Stampers and just altered it to fit in with the specifications.

I don't know why I've waited so long to share these with you but better late than never hey!

Here's one of my fave photos with me, little sis and my grandad.

And one of my gorgeous mum!

Thanks for stopping by,
take care x

Sorry I've been a bad blogger...

... I don't know where the time goes.

This week I've had my mini pre-order arrive and the stamps are just so delicious! I promise to share some samples with you when I get a minute!

My sister's party last week was really good, I can't believe how many friends she has!

And above is the only half decent photo I have haha. Bless her, she's drunk already!
But I suppose your only 18 once!

Sorry it's only a short post this week - I won't make a habit of it!

Thanks for stopping by,
Take care

Keepsake canvas

Hi all, hope your having a creative Saturday!

Just a quick post to show you a canvas I made for Stu for our anniversary.

I've been meaning to make one of these for a while now and finally got round to it. It's very addictive and so so easy I can't wait to do more of them.

What do you think?

I've been wanting to start scrapbooking for a while - have done a few that you get in a kit and follow their layouts but doing this canvas has really given me the bug to get going on my own so watch this space!

It's my sisters 18th birthday party tonight so need to go get ready. Will get some pics and hopefully get a chance to blog them within the next day or so.

Thanks for stopping by,
take care

Some exciting offers from Stampin' Up!

Hi all, hope your enjoying your weekend.

I certainly have been! I've got not one but two great offers to share with you and I know your just going to love them!!

First off I'm soo pleased to be able to announce that Stampin' Up! have released Europe’s first mini catalogue! (And I've had a peek - wowsa!)

This mini catalogue will be available to order from starting the 1st of April and run through to the 30th of September 2009.

It is filled with brand new stamp sets and accessories including papers and the cutest ribbon Ive ever seen!

Some brand new sets include Forrest Friends (Oh my, this has to be my absolute fave! Think Bambi) Greetings Eight (so many possibilities) and some new punches :)

I'm so excited to get my new products and share them with you so look out for the cards coming soon.

And secondly during March you will get 25 percent off the On Board chipboard assortments from the current catalogue.

Stampin' Up!’s On Board chipboard is designed to coordinate with many of their stamps and accessories, and is perfect for adding depth and colour to cards, scrapbook pages, or any other project you can think of and what's most is it's so easy to use!

So hope that has got your attention!

Speak soon,
Take care x
