Launch Wrap Up and Prize Winners


Hello everyone!  A big thank you to all the ladies who came along to my launch events last week and helped make them such fun.  I've got some quick pics from the displays and launch projects, plus a great big list of prize winners from our Stampin' Rewards prize draw. 

We enjoyed the chance to get up close and personal with the new 2016 - 18 In Colours.


Everyone made a book mark that doubled as an in colour bookmark.



Plenty of displays to browse.  I'll have some better pics of these cards (and links to projects that inspired some of them) in the coming weeks.




Guests made 3 cards at the launch - one from the Oh Happy Day Kit - what a great, bright and happy kit that one is.  Another one featured Blooms and Bliss DSP.  And for our last card, the ladies moved along the stations at the kitchen bench and made one of these cute baby bear cards.

We had plenty of door prize winners (around 12 people all up over the 3 events) who picked something from the prize basket. 

Now for some more winners - and gosh there's a long list today (thank you Stampin' Up for running a host special this month, some extra prizes thanks to that promotion.)

First up our Scavenger Hunt winners .....

Wednesday:  Michelle T - who chose a Soft Sky ink pad

Friday: Amanda - who chose a Watermelon Wonder ink pad

Sunday: Laura - who chose a Flirty Flamingo ink pad. 

Congratulations ladies.  Have fun with your new inks.

Congratulations to all of our prize winners.  Ladies who placed orders at the launch - I'll let you know when they arrive. 

I think we'll fill the postie van! 


A few more launch pics to finish off.  Here's some colour charts I made a few years ago.  They look so pretty I get them out every launch.  Quite handy for colour questions too.


Here are the goodie bags everyone got on their way in the door - with some samples of patterned paper and enamel dots.  I do love this flourish on the front.  The Big Shot got a good workout in putting the bags together.


I'd best finish this post up and hit the "publish" button so my launch ladies can see if they won a prize.  Just snuck in before Monday is finished.  (Got a bit sidetracked today.  Took the car in for a major service and the kids and I got the bus to the nearby shopping centre to amuse ourselves for the day.  We saw Finding Dory - what a gorgeous movie.  If you loved Nemo, you'll love this one.)

Cheers,   Sue

Floral boutique

I just love this whole product suite and can't wait for it to arrive so I can have a play.  Isn't the intricate framelit so pretty.


While we're in floral pretty mood, I also love this suite.

Blooms and bliss



Such lovely colours together. 

This bear is a bit adorable too. 


Ooh and look at that - time has flown by and it is time to go pick up the kids from school.
