First birthday partying pandas

A sweet girl that I know turned one on Boxing Day last year, and more recently, she celebrated with a party. I went along with my family, and these dapper guys came along too!

I wanted to try out one of the stamping techniques that seems to be everywhere I look at the moment. It's called the Eclipse Technique, and it involves using the Large Letter Framelits to cut your word of choice out of a stamped background, then re-inserting the cut out letters, but mounted up on Stampin' Dimensionals, so that they pop out of the background.

Honestly, I'm not sure that the angle of the photo above really illustrates the technique very well, but hopefully the combination of the photo and my description helps you understand the technique if you're not already familiar with it!

The Party Pandas are one of the stamp sets available for FREE with a qualifying Sale-a-bration order, so if YOU want to party with them, you'll need to make sure you grab them before the end of March!

Sale-a-bration second release


I've been remiss in not being hastier to pass on the latest update in all things Sale-a-bration.

But in the event that there's nothing there that steams your pudding (or in the event that you've already earned them all!), there are some new products in town, and my guess is you're going to love them...

I already have plans for that gorgeous Basket Weave Embossing Folder (Easter basket, anyone...?!) and I'm a huge fan of anything textured and watercolour-ish, so Eclectic Expressions is on my to do list as well.

And I have seen some amazing creations with the Springtime Foils DSP too, so I have some serious creating in my future. It goes without saying that I pre-ordered them all, it was too difficult to choose a favourite, so I chose not to choose... *grin*

Happy New... Everything!

Hello friends!

Happy New Year! How was your festive break, if you had one? Mine was filled with family, friends and food - fairly standard for the time of year and enjoyable in every sense!

I have recently updated my website with all kinds of information about the current fabulous promotions - too much to put in a single post, so I have separated it out into individual pages that are easier to find and navigate.

Make sure to visit each page and take in all the info - there are resources galore on all of the new products and promotions, so you might want to boil the kettle first :-)

Here you go...

I have a bit of a life update to share as well, but that's a story for another time (soon!), right now I have an email to send (are YOU subscribed..?) and some classes to spruik!
