Well, the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip to Broome, Western Australia, is over and I honestly can't believe how quickly that week went! We had a great time, and I'm looking forward to sharing a recap of events on a separate page for those who are interested. I'll post the link soon. (Edited: Here's that link).
But for today I'm excited to share a beautiful card… one I will treasure always.
Shelli's card features the sentiment from Seasonal Sayings (p34 Holiday catalogue) and the Pool Party image is from Affection Collection (p35 Holiday Catalogue).
This card accompanied our final gift, and inside is a beautiful message by Shelli Gardner, CEO and co-founder of Stampin'Up! [And speaking of gifts…. oh my goodness… we were totally spoilt this trip!!] This is such a gorgeous and sparkly card in real life, and in true Shelli style. Love the stitching, love the layering, love the sanding on the Core-dinations cardstock, love the heat embossed sentiment. Stunning! And the envelope was just as special…
And now it's back to reality! We have a busy month planned full of workshops, classes and other events in the lead up to Christmas. (Yes, it really is less than 2 months until Christmas!!! Eeeek)
Have a fabulous day and happy stamping,
Today I’m stopping by with the Layered Labels tags I promised a little while back.
These definitely make me feel inspired to create!
We’ll have lots of fun and excitement to share soon, with news from the Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip to Broome. Stay tuned! But for now, here’s a little sneak peek of something special that arrived a few weeks ago…

Well I've finally finished going through all my photos and unpacking after our fabulous trip to Hamilton Island.
Hamilton Island INCENTIVE TRIP Highlights, 2010
It was an amazing experience!
This Stampin' Up! travel wallet was sent to us a couple of weeks before the trip, complete with gorgeous bag tags
If you are interested, I've written all about it (with plenty of photos too) and you can find it all HERE. I decided not to put it here as a blog post, because I'm sure many people out there aren't interested (it's like the old days of 'slide nights' watching someone else's holiday snaps – LOL). But I know there are girls in my team of demonstrators who are asking for highlights, along with my lovely friends and family… Thanks for sharing the excitement with me and all your support along the way. xxx
Back to normal programming from tomorrow. I've got HEAPS of cards and other stamped projects to share with you, so stay tuned!
INCENTIVE TRIP 2010 Hamilton Island HIGHLIGHTS
Today I'm doing the big Happy Dance!
After three long years and some blood, sweat and tears I have
can you guess, can you guess????
to keep you in suspense just a minute more, here's an original card I made to celebrate
finished my first proper quilt!
Ok so maybe that bit of news wasn't very exciting, but it is to me *LOL* and I just had to share it!
I enrolled in a patchwork and quilting course a few months after we left Melbourne and moved to regional Victoria, mainly so I could get out of the house and do something different (I was pregnant at the time). I learnt how to hand-piece a sampler quilt, and this week I finally finished hand-quilting it! No work of art, that's for sure, but you've got to start somewhere!
Our group of Creswick Quilters are holding our first ever Quilt Show this weekend in the Bill Huntley room at John Curtin Aged Care, Creswick. It's for a great cause, as all proceeds go to the hospital. I'll be there on Saturday if you want to drop by and have a giggle at us. Phew, soooo glad I finished mine in time!
Now let me see, there was some more news…. now what was it?
oh THAT's right….
did I mention that I earned the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip to Hamilton Island this week?
Thank you Stampin' Up!
I'll have a lot more to say on that on Sunday after the quilt show is over :)
