Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads out there, hope you are having a great time with family on the beautiful first day of Spring! I haven't managed to make a Fathers Day card this year (Mum and Dad are in Broken Hill!), but I dug out this one that could easily be adapted to suit the masculine theme for Fathers Day. I haven't stopped using the Memorable Moments set that includes numbers plus 'st', 'th' and 'rd' and the 'Happy',' Birthday' and 'Anniversary' stamps. Very handy for cards and scrapbooking!
The new festive catalogue has launched and there are some great new ideas for Christmas cards, gifts, tags and decorating - lets face it its less than 4 months away so the time to start planning is now! There are plenty of card sets if you want to save time and whip out a batch of cards quickly. Another new product is the Christmas planner and sticker collection, and scrapbookers will love the 8x8 album and sectioned page protectors for quick and easy layouts. If you'd like your own free paper copy of the catalogue, or the main catalogue & idea book for just $5 just let me know.
There is also a big selection of Halloween and Thanksgiving craftiness - very American but it seems we are celebrating Halloween more and more each year....I really like the idea of being grateful for the abundance in our lives so why not host a Thanksgiving meal for the special folks in your life? I am planning to do that early with the return of Jo and family to Sydney in October, such special times lie ahead......
The Stampin' Up! special for September is the butterfly bundle - save 15% when you order the Bitty Butterfly punch and the Papillion Potpourri stamp set together (7 stamps). A combination you will use for so many occasions, birthday, sympathy, thank you - just about everything could do with a butterfly touch! ($51 for wood mount or $45 for clear mount if you have the clear blocks). Click here to see the flyer. Let me know if you have any questions of would like to take advantage of this bundle deal. I will waive the postage costs on these items in September as butterflies are my absolute favourite stamps!
My next paper craft workshop day will be Sunday 22 September, so please let me know if you'd like to join us.
Happy Spring and have a creative September!!
