A long one today with lots of news since posts have been a bit sparse lately! (But I can now see the floor and the surface of my desk in my study/craft room, and have 'de stamping stuff'ed the rest of the house ..... for a week or so anyway!)
First a card to share ....
This card uses one of my favourite patterned paper packs Urban Oasis. Love the colours in this pack.
Stamp Set: Best Yet (Hostess Set - book a workshop for the chance to earn this stamp set free)
Colours: Not Quite Navy - actually I alway call this colour - Nothing Like Navy :-) and Baja Breeze and Basic Gray
Inks: Basic Gray for the greeting and some sponging around the patterned paper squares - hmmm not actually sponged, I just ran the sides of the squares of paper over my inkpad
Other: Urban Oasis patterned papers, 1 1/4 inch Square Punch, Felt Flowers from Flower Fusion Too (pg 144) and my favourite metal embellishment lately - Filigree Brads (pg 148)

Become a Demonstrator for $150
The second part of the May Scrapbooking Promotion is a limited time offer to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator for just $150 with the Scrapbooking Starter Kit.

Simply Scrappin' Kit (choose from the 7 kits on pages 136 - 138)
Classic Stampin' Pad (choose your colour)
Textured Cardstock Pack (12" x 12") (Choose your colour family)
Craft and Rubber Scissors
Business supplies to get you started including catalogues, order forms etc
There's heaps of great things about joining the crew. When I joined Stampin' Up a bit over a year ago, one of the benefits I hadn't expected was that a lovely part of being a demonstrator is all the nice OTHER demonstrators I'd meet and get to know. (Apologies, think I'm a tad gramatically challenged in that sentence!)
If you'd like to become a demonstrator, I'd love to welcome you to my friendly Think Ink team. My team has a mix of girls - some who buy for themselves and perhaps have a few friends and family who purchase from them too, and some who are keenly building thriving papercrafts businesses. Whatever your goals are, you'll be warmly welcomed.
If you'd like me to send you an info pack with more details, phone or email me and I can pop one in the post. I'm happy to have a chat too if you have any questions, or would like to get to know me a little better as you decide if its for you.
If you've been thinking about it, May is a great opportunity to jump on deck for $150 with the Scrapbooking Starter Kit. It's also a good option if you've already got a ton of Stampin' Up! goodies and tools and don't need all the items in the regular starter kit.
And A Farewell ....
Well, just for a few days! I'm just about all packed and am heading off on Thursday for the annual Stampin' Up! Convention in Canberra. I can't wait to meet heaps of other mad Stampin' Up girls, and put faces to all the friendly folk I've met via blogland and our online forums. My sister Lisa is coming along with me for a great girls crafty weekend. Did I mention I CAN'T WAIT!
I've made about 40 swaps so far - so girls who come along to my classes, I'll have at least 40 spiffy new cards to show you when I return. How exciting! Plus a TON of photos of course to share.
Now that also means my May newsletter will be a little later than usual this month. I plan to send it out Monday or Tuesday, so keep an eye on the inboxes early next week.
I'm sure John and the kids will be having heaps of fun at home too while I'm away. I'll miss my snuggles and story time but am SOOOOO looking forward to a few days away just being me, not MUUUUUUMMMMM! Hee hee.
Perhaps they'll be having a musical weekend, thanks to something that has made it's way from Maddy and Poppy's shed to our lounge room and is already a hit with the kids. (Thanks mum and dad!) You should see Jack - he cracks us up. Tapping away madly at the keyboard singing 'You can change the world, you can change the world, you can change the WOOOORRRRRLLLLD.' Pause. 'Now CLAP.' Rather demanding concert performer there! (He's a big Muse fan and I think the words are Jack's version of one of their songs.)
Anyway, better get back to the last of the packing. See you all when I get back from Canberra! Cheers, Sue
