A 6th birthday

My "little big man" turned six a couple of Saturdays ago and he adores magic. He discovered it at a School Holidays show at the shopping centre and still loves it a year later! So we had a magic party. Mummy sewed 3 magicians capes, Daddy did a Magic Show with the help of some pretty cool tricks from the Magic Shop at Chatswood (and some dodgy facial hair), which ended with an unexpected bang and lots of colourful paper and streamers, we had a Top Hat cake, played Pin the Wand on the Magician (that Toby drew) and Pass-the-Top-Hat plus the party bags were a game too. They were each given a token and had to find the correct adult then do an activity to get their loot. It was lots of fun and noisy!

Colour Renovation - get your retiring colours now before they run out!

You may have already heard that Stampin' up! have decided to do a colour reno on their colour families.

For over two years, they have done extensive research including investigating colour trends in the fashion, home d├ęcor, and crafting industries, and have conducted focus groups involving demonstrators, customers, and Stampin' Up! experts to bring us a fresh, on-trend colour palette to work with!

The new colour palette is organized into four collections: Subtles, Brights, Regals, and Neutrals. We will see 25 current colours remaining, and ten past In Colors returning as core colours, and the addition of five new core colours. Check the colour charts to see what the new collections look like, and what colours will be retiring.

Each year we will have five new In Colors, and they will remain for two years. This means that the 2010-2011 In Colors will be introduced this year, but will not be retired until the 2012-2013 colours are introduced. This year there will be only be five In Colors, but after that, we will always have ten (the previous year's plus the new).


Any retiring colour product that run out of stock from now will not be replenished so if you have some favourite colours that are going (I know I do!) now is the time to get them before they disappear.

brayering a Manhattan Rose

I've had fun recently playing with my brayer. Stampin' up! sell the Rollerball brayer which I believe is the best on the market. There is a great video on how to do this here by Patty Bennett. We are doing this card at my class on Thursday night. Email me to book in!

Josephs Coat technique with my brayer

I made this card for my sister for her birthday. Firstly I brayered a piece of Whisper White cardstock on one side Regal Rose and the other Rose Red leaving it lighter in the middle. Then I stamped in Versamark the flower from Stampin' Up!'s Vintage Vogue set and embossed it in clear embossing powder. Then with my brayer again I rolled over the entire piece of card with Rich Razzleberry and wiped off the ink from the flowers to reveal the gorgeous colour blend underneath. And I decided to "Tenealify" the inside {well as well as I can! she does the most gorgeous insides!} This card was inspired by Marelle's card and is one we are doing at my class this Thursday. Email me to book in.
