Aim for Alaska Blog-Hop

Hi and welcome to the Aim for Alaska Blog Hop. Thanks for coming by and having a look at the Sneak Peek I have made using the beautiful Eastern Palace Suite from Stampin' Up!
A group of demonstrators have come together to showcase some of the fantastic products that will be available to purchase when the new Annual Catalogue goes live on the 1st June 2017. You may have arrived here from Jenny Hall from the  USA.
All of the Blog Hop demonstrators are part of a group aiming to achieve the yearly incentive trip which will be to "yep you guessed it" ALASKA! 

I am so excited to be joining this hop and sharing my sneak peek project with you. 

My Project
I created a gift bag and Card to match! 

The Eastern Palace Suite is packed with Eastern- inspired opulence
The beautiful Gold Vinyl stickers and the Mini Tassles Assortment pack will add style to any project. This Suite also includes the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies and can be purchased as a bundle. In my sneak peek I have also used the beautiful Designer Series paper. To create the colour difference in the centre of the card I layered 3 pieces of the in-colours Tranquil Tide, Fresh Fig and Dapper Denim. the sentiment was stamped in Dapper Denim. to create a touch of elegance I added some Gold Ribbon.
Next on the hop is the lovely and talented  Sue Vine from Australia.

Random Acts of Kindness

It great when we receive something other then Bills or loads of advertising (Junk mail) in our letter box. Today I have completed some cards for a "RAK" Group which stands for Random Acts of Kindness. This is were you send send a card or something special to someone to say thank you or that you are thinking about them. The theme for Kylie Bertucci's  May group was encouragement.

     I received something very special from two very beautiful people in my life (Louise Sharp & the wonderful and inspiring Kylie Bertucci) this week. It made me realise that there are really some wonderful people in the world who encourage and inspire others with all they do. I will to send them a little thank you in return.

My card for the "RAK" this week was inspired by the COE of Stampin' Up! Sarah Douglas who reminded me of a technique I learnt sometime ago and don't often use. I tots love it when Sara goes live on Facebook to inspire us and brings something old to the something new.  Why not go and check out Sara's creation.

I just want to add that stamping with a group of friends is magical, as Shelli said "it like icing on a cake!" You talk, you laugh, You share, while creating some beautiful handmade projects that you can give to that some one special who goes the extra mile for you as well as allowing you to feel a great sense of achievement. Being a demonstrator has been life changing for me. Thank you Stampin' Up! because over the years I have made truly amazing and wonderful friendships.

Tranquil Tulips Sneak Peek

Hi, today I'm sharing a sneak peek from the 2017-2018 Stampin" Up! Annual Catalogue. It is just one of the awesome Hostess Set you can earn for yourself. I stamped the tulips in Melon Mambo (One of my fav Colours) and the stems in Wild Wasabi. Yep I even did some fussy cutting too. Tots love the 3d effect.

Global Design Project #GDP083 - Theme Challenge

Welcome to my blog.  It has been some time since I've played along to a challenge as I have been busy packing up a house and moving. My Hubby and I made the decision to move the beautiful township of Bathurst, west of the blue Mountains. It is famous for Gold Mining  and the Mount Panorama Race Circuit.  We love it here and are looking forward to making lots of new friends. 

Our move went well however, it did take a little longer than expected for the house to be finished. This left me with all my belonging including all my craft stuff being packed in a storage shed for more than six months. I did beg hubby to leave my craft room to last but he insisted on packing it first as it was going to be a mammoth task. I knew I shouldn't have listened to him. LOL

My Card

This week's Challenge is all about Sparkles and Bling and who doesn't love a bit of bling. My Grandson is turning 7 years old this week and loves Dinosaurs so I made his Birthday card using the No Bones About It ( Stamp set from Stampin'Up) and added a little bling using the Red Glimmer paper for the circle and the number. Thanks for stopping by!
