Colour Renovation

Hello out there!

As promised here are the two links showing the colours that are staying and going, some of my favourites are staying or coming back with the return of a few past In Colours returning as core colours, but sadly there are a few of my favs leaving us.
So if you have any favs that are leaving please order any card, ink refills and accesories ASAP to avoid missing out on them.
On top of these we will still get our new range of In Colours in Sept when this starts

Thanks Amy


Hi again,
I know I said recently that I would post more often but sometimes life gets in the way!
In the last month I have had my 2nd Stampin Up Convention, here in Sydney. Once again we had a ball, I will get some photos up ASAP.

Hubby the 4 kids and I went to Geelong for two weeks at the end of May to celebrate my 30th birthday. That was a whole lot of planning and running around with nearly 100 guests attending. A great time was had by all. We are now trying to get back into routine around here.

So much is happening in the Stampin Up! world with the colour renovation , specials and the new catalogue due in September. I am in the process of getting the post for those edited and ready to update here.

Also on July 13th The INKlings are hosting another blog hop all about Christmas, so pop it in your diary and check it out, its sure to be a great hop!!

will hopefully be back in the next day or two with the specials posts so stay tuned.

Thanks for dropping in

Hi ,
Just want to wish all the Mum's out there a great Mothers Day, hope you are all getting spoit rotten. My day has been great so far, a sleep in, some new pj's a circle scissor and some great gifts the kids had made themselves at school and daycare.
Here is what I came up with for my own Mum, my hubby's Mum and our Grand Mothers.
the first card is one that I made for my Nan & Martins Nan.
Andthe rest show the card folders i made for my Mum and Mother in Law.
The purple set was for my Mum, who is also known to most as Fragon, This was meant to be Dragon but my eldest could not say in properly at age 1, so Fragon stuck.
The blue set is for my MIL Sandra. I hope they like their gifts and have a great day. We dont get to see them todya as they live in Geelong.
Thanks for looking
