March Madness

What a whirlwind the last couple of weeks have been. After receiving my box of Stampin Up goodies within a day I planning a craft stall and Mothers Day cards.

Do you ever feel like a tight deadline and a little stress focuses the mind? For me it was a good thing. I took a step out of my comfort zone, put myself out there and the result was the first steps into connecting with some lovely customers.
I may look a bit silly (and a bit tired) from the late night crafting in this photo but I was so proud of myself and my dear friend Anna who shared the stand with me.

Safe to say I made a few box cards for this stand and they really were a special card for those lovely mums out there. Thanks to everyone who purchased one, loved them and appreciated the craftsmanship.

I will share with you how to make a box card and some tips and tricks I have learnt along the way. Happy Monday every one! X

The Journey Begins

So excited to share with everyone that I became an Independent Stampin Up demonstrator this week. I patiently waited and tracked my UPS delivery just typical of my luck to be at my other 'job' all day.

My fantastic neighbour came to my rescue taking in my parcel for me. Thanks Vince! You are a legend!

Well I couldn't wait to unpack this beauty. Admittedly after a week I couldn't remember exactly everything I ordered. My intention was to cover all major events such as birthdays, births, weddings and my beloved Project Life goodies. Here's a sneak peek of what I received.

To say I was like a kid in a sweet shop was an understatement. I really didn't know what to use first but in the end my go to stamps were 'Something Lacy' and 'Baby Bumblebee'. 

I hope to be sharing so much more of what I received and what projects I have made with them very soon. So for now, so much to plan on the road to becoming a fully fledge Stampin up demonstrator. I hope you will love to join me on my journey!
