Class Samples - Fathers Day / Male Cards

I almost forgot Father's Day!! Sorry if your Dad lives away from Cairns but our Father's Day cards are a little late this year! So if you've already knocked up a Father's Day card or (heaven forbid ...) purchased one, these cards can be modified to birthday cards or, as you'll see on one of them, a retirement card.

Usual details:-

10am Tuesday 30 August and 7.30pm Friday 2 September
5 Capricorn Street, Bentley Park
$20 for 3 cards - all materials, equipment, coffee and (pretty lame) biscuits provided

Please RSVP so I know how many to expect.


Be one of the first to receive the new gear and / or host a party to see all of the new gear. Happy days!

Have a great week.

Thursday 25 August Samples

At last, a chance to blog. Sorry there was no post last week - I had a hectic week moving my craft room, preparing for the presentation for the SU! Regionals Training on Saturday and Tully Heads class on Sunday.


We all had a great time at the Regionals training day at the Sebel on Saturday.

Here are some happy snaps:-

5 Capricorn Street, Bentley Park
$20 for 3 cards - coffee provided (please bring your own sweets - after seeing the Regionals photos of me, there will be no sweets kept at home - Ha!! ... back on the shakes!)

Please RSVP if you'd like to come along.

Happy stamping!

It's all very feminine this week!

This week's cards were inspired by a fantastic presentation by Vanessa Webb at the Melbourne SU! Convention in May. We will be using the Big Shot adhesive sheets and fabric to create these very feminine cards. The butterflies and scallop envelope are die cut and embossed for some great dimension.

Usual details:-

Friday 12 August 7.30pm and Tuesday 15 August 10am
5 Capricorn Street, Bentley Park
$20 for the set - all materials, equipment and coffee provided

I should receive my pre-ordered sneaky-peaky items from the new catalogue on Friday - wahoo! I'd like to say watch this space for some sneaky-peaky samples but my craft room is in a shambles as I move it to the (bigger) spare room ... one more week should do it!

Happy crafting.
