Hats Off

Hi everyone, 

We had a birthday boy turning 10 this week.  Wow double digits.  Master N loves his caps.  He has being wearing an Essendon one, (black and red), for years.  Just before his birthday I asked his mum if I could buy a new one.  His was certainly well loved. Someone else had already thought of that.  So he received a new one for his birthday.  

Well I bought this new stamp and Dies.  There is the dies Hat Builder and Stamp Set is called Hats off.  This set can be found in the Annual Catalogue page 159 ©2021 Stampin' Up!®  The two items can be purchased as a Bundle with 10% off. 

 I made Master Nate’s card with the book binder card.  Something different and really easy to make.  The second card was made with reversed colours, only because I could. 



This one below has a different story.  I skyped Mum on Saturday.  We quite often skped and make cards together.  Mum actually talked while she watched the football.   Anyway when I showed the Mum some new Beauty of the Earth Designer Series  Paper.  She suggested making a hat out of one sheet.  She thought it looked like Army fabric. 


Have you used Stampin Up products before. One of the reasons that I became a demonstrator/hobbyist was because I love the colour combos.  Stampin Up provides cardstock, ribbon, stamp pad, and matching designer series paper and sometimes matching glitz to enhance the cards.  If you are a bit pedantic with colour combinations Stampin Up is your friend. They certainly have my vote.  


The current Annual Catalogue is available on this blog.  If you would like a Catalogue posted to you, it will cost $9-00.  That can be deducted from the next order.

Playful Alphabet Dies

 Hi everyone, 

Our lockdown in Melbourne might be lifted a little more by the time this card is posted. 

Another special birthday that could not be celebrated due to our lockdown.  There have certainly been a number in the last year. Our son turned 40 last year and many of his mates also turned 40, many during lockdown.  I came across a young women at work the other day.  She was very teary the day I met her.  While she was in hospital for a reason, the reason did not create the tears.  She had accepted that news.  The tears were about having her birthday in hospital.  Last year she missed out on her 30th celebrations due to lockdown.  This year she spent her birthday in hospital, what a bummer. 

This card below was made for a friend who turned 70 recently.  Black and white are her favourite colours. I hope she liked it. The Playful Alphabet Dies can be found Annual Catalogue page 72 ©2021 Stampin' Up!®

Hot Dog

 Hi everyone, 

Lockdown hasn't quite been lifted in Melbourne yet.  We are allow to travel 25klms at the moment.  We are required to keep our masks on outside and inside.  No visitors to the house yet.  So it has been suggested that our kids and their families meet at a local playground during the long weekend.  As long as there is take away coffee, everyone agrees!

This card below was another card made during lockdown and posted. Miss S likes grey, dogs or any animal, I think.  She is currently in the middle of exams at university.  Prior to university she moved from interstate so lives in an apartment alone.  Isolation is a terrible thing during lockdown. 

Anyway, this card brightened her day when she received it. It is lovely receiving a card, I think. You know someone cares about you when you receive it.  And each time you see the card you are reminded that you are not alone. 

I love this Hot Dog Stamp Set.  It can be found in the January - June Catalogue page 72©2021 Stampin' Up!®  If you want to purchase this one, you need purchase it before the end of June. 

This stamps set reminds me of our dachshund that we had when I was a little girl.  Bruno was a red one.  He used to get himself into some trouble.  He knew if he could get in through the back door, he only had a little time to go through the house before someone would catch him and he would be outside again. Silly thing, but we loved him and have lots of fond memories.

Hippo Happiness

 Hi everyone, 

This is the last of grandkids cards made during Lockdown.  This one is in the mail. I hope that by the time Miss J receives this card, there is an indication that our Lockdown in Melbourne is finishing.

This card was created using Hippo Happiness Stamp Set which is available in the Annual Catalogue, page 62 ©2021 Stampin' Up!® and Hippo and Friends Dies that on page 163. 

I like colour.  I also like using Designer Series Paper.  This paper is now retired. This little girl like pink and purple.   I think this card is very pink, even for me.

Turtle Friends

Hi everyone, 

As I write this, we are in lockdown in Melbourne. Hopefully by the time this is published we will be out of lockdown and able to visit family and friends again. 

This card is for Master E. Turtles seem to be his thing.  His oldest brother Master N loved frogs. Master T,  his middle brother, loved dinosaurs. While Master E loves his dinosaurs and trucks, he has special love for turtles. So I am also collecting fabrics for a turtle quilt. The other two boys have their frogs and dinasour quilts. 

Turtle Friends can be found in the Annual Catalogue page 56 ©2021 Stampin' Up!®. It also has a punch.  If you buy them together, you can save 10%.

Hot Dog

 Hi everyone, 

As I write this post we are in LockDown in Melbourne.  That mean, we can not pop over and see the kids.  They can not come here. 

So I usually make a card each for the grandkids.  Master T will receive this one.  This stamp set is called Hot Dog.  This stamp set is in January - June Catalogue, page 72 ©2020 Stampin' Up! By the time this one is published there will be a sale on in Stamp Up until the items have runout.  So get in quick.

We know a family who is quarantine in their own home.  They happen to be at one of the sites where an infected person visited. So the second card is going to them.

I love this stamp. It reminds me of a dachshund  our family had when I was little. Poor Bruno was not aloud in the house, but he knew if he could creep in through the back door, he only had a few minutes where he could tear around the inside before he was caught.  Of the memories.

On Snap

 Hi everyone, 

We are currently in Lockdown again in Melbourne.  So my usual activity is making lots of cards to mail out.  I think we all need a card during lockdown.  When we reive a card it reminds us that we are not in alone and someone is keeping you in their thoughts and prayers. 

I have just mailed over 30 cards, mainly to church family. 

I also make a card each for the grandkids.  Some of these stamp sets I have had awhile and needed an excuse to use them. 

So my first one is Oh Snap Stamp Set.  This is currently in the January - June Catalogue page 47©2020 Stampin' Up!® However, it is not in the Annual Catalogue.  If you want it, get in quick.  From the 1st June, the items in the January - June Catalogue will be on sale, until they runout.  So get in quick. 

I used Granny Apple Green and Whale of a Time DSP.  Blow, it is retired. ‘In a While.....Crocodile is a saying that is said around our family get togethers. We have to teach our grandkids the saying thatnwe grew up with, don’t you think.
