Embrace life in brocade

Time seems to be going in fast forward lately & I can't believe it's the end of August & I haven't had time to show you any projects.
Now, since there's only one more day until we finally say farewell to our current catty, I thought I'd show you an 8 card set we made at my June stamp-a-stack (yes, June), using the Embrace Life stamp set.

I'll really miss having brocade blue around, as it's always been a favourite of mine (especially with vanilla – it seems such an elegant French combo to me) so this card set was a bit of an fond adieu to it. As it turned out, most of what I've used, including the beautiful 'Embrace Life' set is also retiring, so it really is a farewell. Anyway, here are the cards... The layouts are all different, but all include basically the same card & paper pieces - in brocade blue, bashful blue, vanilla & kraft card & Bella Bleu DSP.
This 'Birthday Cheer & Wishes' card above was based on the layout of  a 2009convention swap (I think) by the fab Marelle Taylor. Such a great layout.
Just a final note...
Embrace Life is 25% off until tomorrow & then it will be gone for good, so contact me by 6pm tomorrow if you need this or any other final goodies.

Of course, if you have any questions about the cards or anything else, just drop me a line & I'll be happy to help. Thanks very much for visiting & for your patience between posts. I really do appreciate it. I do have lots more to show too, but not much time to post at the moment...but will see how it goes.

Inky wishes, Di

Help Hudson get some wheels

So who's Hudson & why does he need some wheels? Pop over to the helping hudson blog & you'll see he's a gorgeous little boy who needs a 'Kid Walker' to help him learn how to walk.

The helping hudson blog has been set up by a fabulous group of Aussie Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who are raising funds to help Hudson gets his wheels. They're selling tutorials donated by Demonstrators, running daily challenges & lots more ... & did I mention they're giving away great prizes too.

There are 6 different tutorial packages you can choose from & each package includes 10 tutorials....& they're only $10 each – what a bargain! Even better, buy all 6 packages for $60 & you'll get a bonus tutorial package too. I've ordered all 6 & can't wait to get started.

So, check out the helping hudson blog for all the info you need & to join in with the fun. Thank for stopping by.
Inky wishes, Di

Just popping in to say I received my tutorials this morning... & wow! There's so many great ideas, I don't know where to start.

The Last Chance List is here

Our current Idea Book ends this month, so it's time for us to say farewell to hundreds of stamp sets, accessories & lots of colours that won't be returning in our brand new Idea Book (coming next month). Some items are up to 50% off, so check out the enormous Last Chance List here to see how many goodies still on your wishlist are going.

All items are available only while supplies last, so don't wait too long or they'll be gone. Drop me an e-mail if you have any questions or if you'd like to place an order.

Inky wishes, Di
