The Lucky Last!

Posted on

Oh my gosh… talk about being on auto pilot… I’ve been awake since 3.30 this morning so now I keep falling asleep as I sit here attempting to write this so goodness knows if I’m going to make any sense but here ’tis, my last three colours on the Colour Renovation Chart.

Actually here are six of the retiring colours and DSP’s that I’ve used for Term 3’s thank you gifts for the teachers and the lovely ladies at the school office as I like them to know how much I appreciate their hard work each term. Beside the colours I’m highlighting below I’ve also used Barely Banana, Really Rust and Apricot Appeal.

These came about as I really wanted to make some notelets with the Big Shot Scallop Circle Die Cut but to simply put them into a box didn’t seem right so I made up a template of a hand-bag that would hold them. I made four notelets for each bag – two each of two designs. (And I’ve used one of the new punches from the 2010-2011 catty – can you spot it?)

Okay… here is  Fond Farewell to Colour #28 – Blush Blossom.

Here is a Fond Farewell to Colour #29 – Pale Plum.

Here is a Fond Farewell to Colour #30 – Orchid Opulence.

I’m really happy with how they turned out but I’ve dozed off so many times now I’m signing off as the alarm is already set for 4.30am as I need to make a dozen or two cupcakes before school tomorrow. Yes, seemed like a really good idea last week when I planned to make them then and there then put them into the freezer so I would be organised. As I’ve said before, just call me FOGI!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

This weeks… “Deals of the Week” with Stampin’ Up!

Posted on

Here ’tis… this week “specials“… and how good is this… selected DESIGNER SERIES PAPER (or Double Sided Paper as I so do prefer to call it as y’all know!) have been reduced greatly in price. Now is certainly the time to stock up should you want any… note how I said “want” not “need“…

Honestly, this is great value as there are 12 sheets of double paper in each of these collections:  2 each of 6 double-sided designs measuring 30.5 x 30.5cm. The cost break down then for these DSPs are: 85c a sheet for the $10.17 DSPs, 92c a sheet for the $11.02 DSPs, and $1.24 a sheet for the DSPs at $14.92.

Truly, this is fabulous value for the quality of this paper. Yes, I too am wondering also why SU! haven’t rounded down or up to simply “neaten” things up so I’ll do that for you. I’ll only charge $10 or $11 and pop in the extra myself to keep things “tidy”!

For this week, should you wish to place an order with me for any of the below DSPs please email me at and I’ll be in touch. Why the email? It’s just that I’m seeing my hubby this week-end for the first time in SIX WEEKS hence I may not be answering my phone but I will defintely be checking emails off and on.

FYI… the birdhouse I did last month used paper from the Raspberry Tart collection. I also used these DSPs to cover Miss Seven’s sketch book. Also note, the Sweet Slumber DSPs are textured cover-weight card stock.

So here they are, the second deals of the week are from 9 June, 12:01 AM (AET) through 15 June, 11:50 PM (AET).
