Come and stamp a stack of stuff!

I have been quiet. At least as far as my blog is concerned. With summer holidays in full swing, I have been thoroughly enjoying time with my girls undertaking all kinds of summer holiday pursuits. Outings and sleepovers, swimming and sightseeing, visits to parks and movies and just hanging out together and with friends. It's been wonderful, and we still have two weeks until the school term starts.

I have also been busy in my craft room, playing with all kinds of loveliness from the Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-bration promotion items, and I have created a Back to School event to share the love with local peeps!

So get busy covering the text books, labeling the pencils and buying the new lunch boxes, then join me the weekend after school heads back for some well-deserved stampy time!

No kids to send back to school...?! Join us anyway (and feel absolutely free to volunteer to assist with my pencil labeling....)

It's a six hour stampin' extravaganza, with an opportunity to sample a fabulous array of new products.

Each attendee will receive a complete Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack, along with a full pack of Rhinestones. Each project will use these two products (with lots of leftovers to take home and continue creating with) and all other materials (excluding adhesive) will be supplied and pre-cut to size for your stampin' convenience!

Here's what you'll be heading home with:

  • 12 cards and envelopes (four each of three designs)
  • A treat bag with three love notes and envelopes
  • A treat bag converted into a box (including yummy treats!)
  • A card and co-ordinating mini treat box
  • A copy each of the Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-bration brochure
  • A brain full of inspiration and a large desire to continue stamping

Join the fun!

To book your spot, simply contact me and I'll send you payment details so that you can confirm your place.

Venue details as well as information on what to bring will be included with your registration information.

BUT HURRY!

In order to ensure that products arrive in time for the event, I will need to order them by next Wednesday January 28th, so your booking will need to be paid and confirmed before then!

Can't wait to stamp with you!

MDS Monday - Surround Yourself...

I'm a sucker for a good inspirational quote.  My Facebook friends often bear the brunt of my sharing - I can't help but spread the joy when I find a good one, especially if it looks good too.

Mostly though, I share so that I can find my favourites later for myself.  Oftentimes I look back through my own feed to see some of the inspirational words that have struck a chord with me one time or another and I always find them to be good reminders for myself and of the person I want to be.

This is one that I actually found on the feed of one of my favourite Instagram accounts, and I loved it so much that I wanted it to be something I could cast my eyes upon frequently, without having to search for it first...

There is actually very little in the way of MDS content involved here - a background and a swirl or two at the most - it is primarily made up of different fonts that I have downloaded from the internet and installed on my computer.

I have always loved typography, so fonts are a definite "thing" of mine...

One of the most fun things about fonts, apart from the vast array of different types of lettering you can get, are the ones that are referred to as Dingbats - little picture icons that are designated to keyboard letters, so you can "write" in pictures.

The banner shape that houses the words "with the" at the top of my project is an example of this, and it comes from a font named KG Flavor and Frames Seven...

Another of my favourites that is perfect for the chalkboard style swirls and swashes is Bergamot Ornaments...

One of my aims for my house one day is to have a wall of framed beauty - a combination of word art, photos and pretty things that I get to look at every day that make my heart sing.

Which is a bit of an irony, considering that one of my favourite quotes is..

There are seven days in a week and someday isn't one of them

Perhaps that one should be my next frame-able project...

Hook me up with your favourite quotes on all things positive and inspirational.  And fonts - I'm always on the lookout for fabulous fonts...
