Mother’s Day is “Sew Suite”

Hello, hope you are all loving the cool change in the weather lately! Here at home in Sydney, Australia, I have noticed the lawn and hedges getting a dew on them in the mornings! Even threes have all but lost their leaves now!

Any way… here is a peak at the Mother’s Day cards I made for my Mum and Mother-in-Law using the new SEW SUITE stamp set from the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue which you can view >>> HERE (or email me for a hard copy in the snail mail!!!). I LOVE THI SET, it is super cute, and the matching Designer Series Paper is even cuter! I have also used the Tiny Tags stamp set, and the punch for the “love” tag tied to the ribbon.  All supplies are Stampin Up!…


Here is a close up of the awesome JUMBO buttons, that match the Sew Suite stamp and paper… they are definitely JUMBO!!!

Happy Easter

I hope you are all having a good Easter break, I know I have been enjoying the break! I found a cute tutorial on making mini purses from a sheet of Designer Series Paper that was just 6″ x 6″… you can find it HERE. So I decided to whip a few up for some friends I had coming over for a BBQ last night…

Stampin Up! have also just released a BRAND NEW mini catalogue, and there are some absolutely gorgeous stamps in there! I will share a few samples with you soon…

You can check out the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue on my website >>HERE 

Hope the Easter Bunny visited you,

JAI Challenge #52

Another week, another challenge over at Just Add Ink! I am lucky to have my good friend and Stampin Up! upline Christine Stevens staying with me this weekend and this morning after breakfast we sat and made some cards… Here is my creation;

For this card I wanted to use Daffodil Delight Cardstock, so I consulted my Color Coach… and then modified the colours to use up what I had! I used some now retired Designer Series Paper and Ribbon, but the remainder of the supplies are available. All in all, I was quite please with my result! I hope you all enjoy it too!

And this is my friend Christine’s creation;

I hope you all have a good weekend! Australia Day is looming!!!

Just Add Ink and Flood Appeal

With my return to work after 4 weeks off approaching very fast, I felt like making a card or two this muggy evening in Sydney! SO what better challenge to play along with than the Just Add Ink Challenge #51… JUST ADD MONOCHROME! I was a little stumped at first, until I decided to run with pink… yes, yes not my natural first choice with cards… but I relly wanted to use the “Autumn Days” stamp set, as it has a few nice simple stamp designs… and well, pink just seemed to happen!

Just Add Ink Challenge #51

Also it is with great pleasure that I announce the following release from Stampin Up!;

As flood waters continue to inundate Australia in what has been described as the worst flooding in 37 years, we express our deepest sympathies to those who have lost loved ones and homes and to those whose lives have been changed forever. We, like so many of you, feel a compelling need to lend support to all those who have been affected.

Stampin’ Up! demonstrators have a long history of making a difference in the lives of others–especially when disaster strikes and the need is greatest. Nearly two years ago, we watched another tragedy unfold in Australia. Our hearts were touched as demonstrators, customers and friends joined together in support of the Bushfire Appeal. We’ve done it before and we can certainly do it again!

Please join with us by supporting the Australia Flood Appeal–a cause in which Stampin’ Up! will donate $2 AUD of the retail value of sales from any stamp set (with a retail value of $30 or more) sold in Australia and New Zealand from 15 January through 15 February to the State Emergency Services in Queensland.

SO, jump on board and order  stamp set or TWO, or THREE!? Ha ha, we really need to support this very worthwhile cause.

JAI #48 Sketch Challenge

Hey Everyone!

Over at Just Add Ink there is a sketch challenge running at the moment. Well with all this talk of Christmas and the shops over flowing with all things Christmas, I was delighted to take the time to make a Birthday Card for my god-daughter’s 3rd Birthday, and used the sketch to boot!


The majority of the supplies are  Stampin Up! supplies, except the white ribbon and pink cardstock from my stash… The birdy paper is now retired, but it is oh so cute!

Until next time… Happy Crafting- SARAH

Wedding Card

This is a wedding card I made for some friends that got married recently. I wanted to keep it fairly simple and vibrant colours. The stamp set is Baroque Motifs, and it really is quite a versatile stamp set… (the red ribbon is from lincraft)…

I have not yet had time to make any Christmas cards, unfortunately with my work , I don’t think I will get around to making anything this year! So I will have to make up for it next year! I have ordered the full Stamp’N’Write marker set and can’t wait to have a play with them when they arrive!

I am also involved in a Secret Santa with my fellow Stampin Up! Demonstrators. I have a great little project I made, but unfortunately due to the nature of it being a “SECRET” Santa… I can’t share it with you yet!!!

Happy Crafting – Sarah 🙂
