This double page was one of those challenges I set my self and later thought , what was I thinking....Trying to fit 20 photo's onto 1 double page was never going to be easy. But I must, although I definitely have photo over load I love the way these pages came together.
The little Sock Monkey really makes you smile when you see these photo's and that's exactly how I wanted this page to be portrayed. The letters Party have been Stamped and cut out using the Outline Alphabet Stamp Set.

WOW do I have News for you, When Stampin Up announced that we could share this information with imagine my delight at all the excitement it was going to bring.....
As I am sure many of you would know Stampin Up is world renown for its amazing colour's, co-ordination with other products such as Card stock, Designer Series Paper, Ribbons, Ink pads and Markers.
So when they released a Colour renovation it really had alot of us thinking what now.......Well here it is Girls Straight from Head office and what excitement there is. Now I must stress these changes will not take place until SEPTEMBER 2010.

Stampin Up really have excelled in getting out with the old and in with the New as they make over there wonderful Colours to bring YOU 4 BRAND NEW Colour families and a collection of BRAND NEW colours, Don't worry we are keeping some of the favourites we all have to have like Chocolate Chip( Thank Goodness I say). But they are introducing some wonderful NEW colours Never seen before. "KRAFT" is getting a NEW name and "Crumb Cake" and will now have a co-ordinating Ink Pad.

The new colour palette is organized into four collections: Subtles, Brights, Regals, and Neutrals. You will see 25 of our current colours remaining, and ten past In Colors returning as core colours, and the addition of five new core colours. Check the colour charts to see what the new collections look like, and what colours will be retiring. To view a larger picture please click on the chart below.

Now what about In Colours I here you saying, Well this is where it gets really fun and very exciting. (And possibly a little confusing, please comment below if you need clarification.)

There will be 5 New In Colours coming out in September this year then each year Stampin’ Up! will introduce five new In Colours, and they will remain for two years. This means that the 2010-2011 In Colors will be introduced this year, but will not be retired until the 2012-2013 colours are introduced. Then next year another 5 new InColors will be introduced alongside the 2010-2011 colours. Even better news for us Australians… no more waiting forever to get the yummy InColours that our US sisters have because this September we will be getting the same colour. So from the 2011-2012 Release You will have a total of 50 Colours to choose from.

Now I know there will be a little tear or 2 over colours we will be loosing but now really is a Fantastic Time to stock up on all those colours You just can not be with out. I would also recommend Now is a Fantastic Time to begin collecting your Ink Refills as when we draw closer to August some colour's will "Sell Out" Quickly and I would not want you to miss out. I will be running some SPECIAL offers and Promotion's over the next 3-4 Months to allow you to collect your wanted Colours at a special price. Watch my Blog for these Specials.
Tell me what you think... Add a comment below and I will send 1 lucky person a FREE INK PAD (available in AUST/NZ) ONLY. It really is a wonderful way to let StampinUp know what we all feel about this..

The Rubber Image (Uses the exact same High Quality Rubber as used on the Wood mounted stamps) Is easily removed to and from the Clear block as it is "Static Clung" onto the block.

Big Shot - Die Cutting and Embossing Machine Product Information

I was so excited to hear that Australia was receiving the Big shot and Stampin Up has partnered with them to Release here and NOW. The lists of opportunities and possibilities are endless and you really can't go with out the Big Shot if your looking to make your Scrap booking and card making life easier.
I thought I would share with you some wonderful Information to make you more informed on the absolutely wonderful Big Shot Die Cutting and Embossing Machine. Please Remember I have some wonderful promotions available on the Big Shot for you all. See below.

Big Shot Features:-

1. What is the Big Shot?
The Big Shot is a manual die-cutting system that you can use for a number of projects and crafts. The simplicity of the Big Shot makes it a great addition to any one's crafting hobby.

2. How does the Big Shot work?
The Big Shot cuts out images by passing card stock and other materials through rollers that utilize pressure to cut through the materials. With just a couple turns of the handle, you'll be able to cut through a wide variety of materials. The Big Shot also comes with special cutting pads and a cutting platform that not only make the Big Shot safer and easier to use, but also lengthen the life of the product.

3. I have dies from other companies; can I use them with the Big Shot?
Yes, you can. The Big Shot is the most versatile die-cutting machine on the market today. Using the multi-purpose platform, you can use dies, embossing plates, and other products from a wide variety of sources.
4. I've heard that you can run multiple sheets of card stock through the Big Shot at the same time. How many can I run through at once?
Using the steel-ruled dies, you can run multiple sheets of card stock through the Big Shot. The number of sheets depends on the die being used. Simple shape dies--dies that do not have perforation or scoring--can cut through up to eight sheets of card stock at once. Dies that feature perforation or scoring or that are more detailed may not produce the exact cuts when cutting multiples. You'll want to experiment and see how many sheets you are comfortable passing through the Big Shot at once to get the desired effect. Chemically-etched dies should only be used to cut one sheet of card stock or paper at a time.

5. Is the Big Shot exclusive to Stampin' Up!?
No, the Big Shot machine is not exclusive to Stampin' Up! However, the Big Shot produced for Stampin' Up! features a handle color as well as a beautiful logo that are not available on any other version of the Big Shot. In addition to the hundreds of dies already available through Sizzix, we've created dies exclusive to Stampin' Up! And, as we continue to develop this product line, you'll see more and more Stampin' Up! exclusive dies.
Working with Sizzix is a benefit for you as a demonstrator. Because many people are already familiar with the Big Shot, they may already be interested in purchasing it--especially when you show them the exclusive dies and the beautiful projects that you can create using the Big Shot. Customers will also appreciate the hands-on training that you can provide them that they won't receive such great, personalized help in a retail environment.

6. Who is Sizzix?
Sizzix is a brand owned and operated by Ellison, Inc. Since 1977, Ellison has manufactured and distributed professional die-cutting machines and dies largely for the crafting and educational fields. Recognizing the potential of die-cutting machines in the scrap booking and paper-crafting industries, Ellison developed the Sizzix machine for home use. At the same time, Ellison launched the Sizzix brand. Known for innovation, product development, and commitment to high quality, Sizzix is the perfect partner to bring die cutting to Stampin' Up!'s demonstrators and their customers.

7. Who do I contact if I have problems with the Big Shot?
If you should have any problems with the Big Shot, contact me directly I will only be to pleased to help you.

BigShot Specials:

Receive the following as a Special promotional Price.
*Bigshot $160.00 pg 7 New mini.

Or Purchase as a Bundle and SAVE, SAVE, SAVE.

*Big Shot + Scallop Circle + Manhattan Textured Embossing Folder. RRP: $244.80
Special Price $ 210.45 + Receive A FREE Sizzlits Die page 10 (Little leaves or Buttons #5.)
So I am sure you think I have gone made making all these little pillow boxes, that I have had featured on my Blog. But how exciting to know that the wonderful Big Shot allowed me to make them all in under 10 minutes. I will have lots more samples posted over coming weeks as I navigate my way around my Big Shot and make some very special projects.

Big Shot - Birthday Fancy Favour

I just had to share these extra cute little Fancy Favour Party bags I made for Harrison's Birthday on Monday, He turned a Big 5 and with his latest Fad being Sponge bob thought these were right on the mark. They were cut using the Big Shot. I wonder where was I with out it... I have cut them in acetate so you could see the little Sponge Bob lollies. Very quick and Very effective. Haw many other uses could you find for this Fancy Favour box...Hundreds I am sure.

You will notice when viewing the New MINI catalogue under the name of the Stamp Set you are viewing for example please turn to page 16. You will see on the bottom left hand corner:-

Set of Vintage Vogue
8 W 119191 $40.95 AU
C 118598 $30.95 AU

Many of you have had questions regarding the explanation and pricing difference. I will try to make this as simplistic to understand as possible but please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions.

W = Wood Mount as we previously had available. You will pay $40.95 and receive your Stamp Set in a Clear Box with a set of wooden blocks, rubber for stamping and a sheet of Stickers so you can see the image you are stamping.

C = Clear Mount are New to Stampin Up in 2010 but have previously been available by other companies. You Pay $30.95 and you will receive your Rubber images in the same High Quality as previously purchased. They will arrive to you in a DVD style case which allows you to store them neatly and space saving. You will need to purchase a Clear mount Block or 2 that co-ordinates with the Stamp Set you have purchased. The Vintage vogue stamp set works best with the Block C and Block I. All blocks are completely re-usable and will last you a lifetime. The Rubber Image static Clings to the Acrylic Block allowing you to see where you are stamping, wonderful for lining up words and fitting images around each other(see photo above.)

I was previously converted to solely use Wood mount but the introduction of the NEW Clear Blocks by Stamp Up makes stamping so much easier and takes up so little room.

New Autumn Winter Mini Catalogue

I am going to Share Samples from a variety of New products and Next week I will continue to go on with Featuring a NEW set each Week.
