No class this Friday Night / next Tuesday

Hi all

Just a quick email to let you know there won't be a class this Friday night (21 October) as we will have John's family up from Mackay.

I'll also cancel next Tuesday's class (25 October) because Chris's workshop is on Monday 24 October and it will be the same crew that attend .... all the more money to spend on STUFF!!

STAMP CLUB Wednesday 19 October

Stamp Club night is on tomorrow night if you can make it - 7.30pm.

The current Stamp Club is scheduled to expire in November. Please let me know if you would like to rejoin / join for the following 6-month period. It's a $50 committment per month for 6 months (that's right, you make a "committment" to shop - ha! Who needs a "committment" to spend money on craft stuff???) . You will be the hostess for one order during that period, entitling you to minimum hostess spendings of $50. There is also a free Stamp Club night once per month where we make 2 cards of your choice for free.


Saturday 12 November
$50 for 20 cards and a couple of matching gift tags

Please RSVP as spaces will be limited to 8 stampers.

If you've got a group of 8 friends who would like a private stamp-a-stack, let me know and we'll book a date.

STAMPIN FOR A CAUSE Saturday 22 October

Shannean is holding a Stamp for a Cause this Saturday at White Rock State School.

The event is fundraising for Sharon Cohr’s charity Climbing for a Cause which raises much needed money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (for breast cancer research, treatments and cures). Sharon was the first breast cancer survivor to summit Mt Everest in May this year and is an amazingly inspirational person. Shannean's fundraiser aims to raise awareness of her incredible journey, her ongoing charitable activities and raise extra funds to ensure a timely discovery of treatment and cure for breast cancer.

Shannean and her crew will be preparing 3 cards and a 3D project for us to create. The $30 fee includes all materials for the projects, light lunch, juice, tea and coffee. There will be raffles and auctions of SU! products so bring some extra cash - all money raised is being donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Please let me know if you'd like to attend and I'll put you in touch with Shannean. I'm going tooooooo!
Happy days!

I'm finally well settled in to my new room and am enjoying creating again!

Will post next week's samples soon.

Samples Friday 14 October and Tuesday 18 October


I just love the cards for this week - again not my usual style but I really enjoyed making these kids cards. One of the best things about Stampin' Up! is the wealth of samples you can find online. Just Google "Stampin' Up Under the Big Top" and browse through the amazing samples that come up. This week's circus tent card and stage pop-up card are CASEd on the fabulous work of US SU! demonstrator, Heidi Baks - what a clever lady!

Please bring a paper scorer/trimmer, Stampin' Dimensionals (pop-up dots) and a blender pen if you have them.

Usual details:-
