#punchitup Stampin Up Demo challenge

I've been playing with the punches but not happy with any of my creations for the Stampin' Up! Demo challenge. 
Create something using at least 2 of the below punch's

I love these punch's and the great things Pinterset has as examples for their use. 
Think outside the square - I told my dear daughter what I was up to and between us we came up with this little beauty. She has a bit if an obsession with dragons at the moment so there was no chances it was going to be a flower! 

All 4 punch's were used and some extras. I'm chuffed with how he came up.

Sine we are on the topic of Dragons
Here is a pic of her art project - love that she used our Striped Scallop Thinlits to create the scales of her dragon (bit snake like but she didn't like it when I said that).

Birthday wishes with Build A Birthday

Just popped in from a super busy week to share some Birthday wishes using the new Build A Birthday stamp set. 
My Miss 12 needed a card pronto for her friend so she pulled off the shelf my new favourite birthday set. 
We created together which is always nice - I also had stored in the back of my mind that there is another party next week we need a card for so the whole 2 birds one stone saying came to mind. 

And mine 

Happy stamping friends

Baby shower - Gender reveal Party.

The weekend just gone was more than a little special. 
My brother and his beautiful bride are having another baby (number 4) they got the sonographer popped the gender on a note and this was in a sealed envelope. 
Off to a gender reveal baby shower we all went to find out what it is going to be - the little brothers want a baby dinosaur!

I made the treat bags to say thanks for coming so got to use my Gift Bag Punch Board to make these little beauties.


So I bought my neutral gift and wrapped it in star paper. Well I flicked through the catalogue and decided this card was perfect to CASE.

We had a guessing game and drew a winner from the appropriate jar for a prize of chocolates.

Out came the cake that was going to share with all the guests what the new baby is going to be.

Yay a pink inner - it's a little girl!

I am so excited to say the least and can't wait for this little prices to show us her pretty face late September.
Happy Stamping

Gold Metallic Thread

Fixed I say! This stuff wants to unravel like an embroidery thread spool so will get treated as such!
This a thread net you get from the habby/sewing store that goes over your cotton to stop them unraveling.
It works beautifully on our thread and is heaps easier than tape.

What is this stuff you say - anyone that sews will know it as Thread Net. In Australia the cheapest place I found it was at Punch With Judy - I cut them to the size I want. In America you would get it online from Amazon or in store at JoAnn's

Weekly deals continue

I love that with the new Stampin' Up year our weekly deals have continued. 
The chance to get goodies at a 25% discount is huge. Just purchasing one punch is enough to save you more than the postage costs. 
Weekly deals start on the Wednesday of each week and end 11.50pm on the following Tuesday night. 
So I'm thinking you want to know what the deals are this week? 

Time to stock up and some fast fuse refills I think - oh and one can never have enough buttons or ribbon. 

Happy Stamping Court
