Yummy Cupcake Punch… and a special message

Published by under cards | Apr 08 2011

Hi there! Today I'm back to share a project and also a special off-topic message.

Firstly, the project….

This is the fun little 3"x3" gift card I shared as the Make & Take at Paperific craft expo on the weekend. It was a simple project, but a good opportunity for visitors to try out the new Build A Cupcake punch and see how easy it is to use. The punch and matching stamp set were a big hit of course, with lots of people falling in love with this new tool.

Contact me to place your order and I'll get it sent straight to your door, along with a handstamped (and punched!) cupcake card.


And you know what? This punch doesn't just create cupcakes!

Basic version of the Upside Down Cupcake handbag.

I set a challenge for our team of demonstrators this month to share some of the different non-cupcake things they can make from the Build A Cupcake punch – and we had some fabulous and imaginative creations including hot air balloons, a wedding dress, fruit trees and more.

Special thanks to Jedda Couch, Delani Smith and Juliana Main for giving me permission to share their creations on my blog.


And now for something a little off-topic…

As some of you may already know, I've earned my second Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip. Yay! In October we'll be whisked off to Fiji for a week of R&R, Stampin' Up! style. This is so very exciting, and I want to say a huge big thanks to all those special people who've inspired me during the past year. I'm so very blessed, with the best team and best stamping friends a girl could have!

We often hear the words "I couldn't have done it without you" bandied around, but with these kinds of things it really is true! I count my blessings every day and will continue to do my very best to be there for my team and be there for my stamping friends (aka customers) too. My goal is to exceed your expectations!

If you've been following my blog for a while you might have read the journal I wrote on last year's Incentive Trip to Hamilton Island. At the end I wrote: "I would love to have the opportunity to do this again one day, hopefully with even more team members!" Well my dream has come true… because this year two of the fabulous girls in my team have also qualified!  This has just made it all the sweeter, because now that I know how special these trips are I want everyone to come too!  The trip is in October so we've got plenty of stamping to do between now and then, but I just wanted to say a big thank you for helping me earn this trip.


Happy stamping,
