My good friend, Lynette kindly has loaned me the Pocket Silhouettes stamp set whilst I am on holidays. It is such a versatile set and is so cheap at only $33.95. I was lacking a bit of inspiration today so I have used the catalogue to inspire me.

I received some lovely cardstock, designer series paper, ribbon and emblishment from my upline, Claire Daly in the mail so I just had to use some. It was a good time to try out my new Circle Scissor Plus and Glass Mat, and wow it was easy to use, I just need the glue dots to hold down the paper.

Hi there, sorry I was out and about for lunch with a couple of friends today so I don't have any stamping to show you today, but I thought I would share with with you all the traditional family photo that we take on Christmas Day. Jason, my nephew is a talented photographer and sets up the timer on the camera so we can all be in the shot.
(Pictured here is my small but very close family dad, me, Jason and Phil - brother-in-law).
I can not believe it I have completed another UStamp project, this time the Big Bold Birthday Card designed by Jenny Moors of the United Kingdom, which should have been a pop up gift card holder but I wanted it as a card as I am trying to build up some cards that I can display at my demonstrator parties.

It is Boxing Day here in Australia and it was a day of organising my craft room and then I stamped for the first time in a while without having Christmas in mind. I have been admiring all the projects on UStamp all month but today I finally completed my first one which was designed by the very talent New Zealand Demonstrator, Tracey Old. Love your creations Tracey. I used alot of my new goodies from the Summer Mini Catalogue which I just love the bright and cheerful colours of the Designer Series Paper and what about the butterfly punch.

Sorry I have not posted any stamping for such a long time, but when I returned from my Queensland Holiday back in mid November, I just could not find the time to catch up. Over the last couple of days I have been distributing my handmade bickies to family and friends and I thought I would share with you the packaging this year which turned out really well with the snowflakes stamped with white StazOn on the cellophane bags with the cute little toppiers.
I am now on holidays and I am really looking forward to creating some wonderful projects from the current UStamp with Dawn and Friends as I have not had the free time to do any of the projects.
I love this video which I received from a family member who is travelling around Australia at the present time, it is such a fantastic Aussie version of Jingle Bells. I wish you all a happy and healthy Christmas and New Year.
