Stampin' Up! Dressed To Impress

Dressed to impress 1

I've been doing a bit of decluttering, cleaning and sorting out at home over January.  Going through the bathroom cupboards and sorting through old makeup and almost empty perfume bottles reminded me of this Dressed To Impress suite.  Such cute images and coordinating dies to make cutting them out easy.  There's even a pad of matching 6" x 6" patterned paper to make your creating as easy as possible.

Here's the bundle.  You can check it out in my online store here:  Dressed To Impress Bundle

You can make these cute little gift bags shown below using one of the dies.  I love the ribbon holders/buckles too.

And there's a nice mix of bold pictures and great backgrounds, plus some lovely florals in the patterned paper.  Find it here: Best Dressed DSP

Don't forget - if you spend $90 (or multiples) you can choose from our Saleabration freebie range here.  

Cello Card Bags

I've had a couple of questions from customers recently about where I get my clear card cello bags from.  I LOVE the ones from Pack It In - great price and really lovely quality.  The C6 ones are the perfect size for cards.  

Well - better get back to my clean out.  I haven't made it to the study/craft room yet and I'm fast running out of school holidays.   Class dates are coming soon - just fine tuning the calendar and waiting on a few school dates then we'll be up and running.  Classes are due to start again in February.  

Cheers,  Sue

What are your favourites from our new range of all occasion products?  


Bees have been on our minds at our place the last few weeks.  We dearly love them in our garden but we recently have some that seem very very interested in moving in to the walls of our house.  We've managed to seal up quite a few gaps and have less buzzing visitors the last few days.  Hoping they've found a better alternative somewhere else.  

Lovely to have some rain here today and I hope it is also falling in the eastern areas of our country where it is so needed.  

Happy creating and take care,



How are you going?  I can't take my eyes away from the screens at the moment - feels like so much of our country is on fire - native animals and bushland and rural towns under threat.  Smoky skies widespread.  

Haven't known a summer before where so many people I know are impacted directly or indirectly. Just sending out heartfelt best wishes to anyone affected by the fires or smoky skies or worry for friends and family, and also to all those firefighters/emergency service crews and families who must be so so tired. xx 

We all feel helpless.  Here are some ways to help ......
