Display sampler

I had a wee bit of fun yesterday putting together this sampler of products from the new Occasional catalogue. It's a printer tray which are all the rage at the mo. I actually bought a big tray on Trade Me last year and got this one and a tree shaped one for free with it - funny thing is I have used the two freebee ones and not the big one! lol 
I still have a few seats available for Sunday's catalogue launch so email me if you're in Auckland and free Sunday at 2.30pm for this FREE event. AND you will see this and other display items and all the new YUMMY products!!!

Give your projects TEXTURE like my new canvas

I LOVE black and white projects and the new paper Kaleidoscope DSP had some '80's inspired colours and prints but on the back there are three black and white prints too. These - along with some other new products -are what I used for this canvas. The canvas itself started off black - gotta love that! oh and the local shop had them at 50% off - even better!! But one thing you can use to create more interest on a project is to add texture - it would be hare to get the variation with just layers of plain black. Here is a pick of the close up of the texture.

 A new product that Stampin' Up! have just released is the cool little Texture Boutique embossing machine. It's like the little wee sister of our Big Shot. This machine is ONLY for embossing. It's nice and light and portable - so great to take when crafting with friends. The embossing folders only go in top first but you can still use it for full cards. AND at only $59.95 it's a lot cheaper than a full Big Shot. Actually I think I will order one just to have for classes when we are both cutting and embossing - I could have this one doing the embossing and the Big Shot doing my cutting! Not to mention it is so darn CUTE!!!
AND if you and this product to an order with other products (to a total over $110.00) you will be able to get FREE stuff with Sale-a-bration!!!
There is only a limited number of them available at the moment in the South Pacific - so once those sell out you'll have to wait till the new Main Catalogue comes out later in the year! Contact me today or order yourself directly online HERE

I am so sorry that it's been over a month since I last blogged! eeeek that time went fast!! I had a lovely month holiday with my family - it was awesome to have my husband home from work for a whole month!!! We traveled far and wide, with and without the kids. 
SO I thought I would start the year with a sample card I made for this weeks class. Below is a feminine version of the same card map. Now a friend showed me a card similar to the one below and I searched HIGH and LOW to find the original creator but alas I couldn't so if it was YOU please comment below cause you created a LOVELY card with the doilies and the new set Petite Petals. 
I have been making some samples for my new Occasional Catalogue launch on 2 February so I will do some sneaky peeks on my blog.
