My Digital studio and SU Convention

MDS - My Digital Studio

For all those out there that are familiar with MDS this is my first attempt at making a journal for Stampin Up (R)'s 2013 Convention in Brisbane, Australia on the 23rd to 25th May. This also coincides with their 25th Anniversary which I am very excited to be part of as this is my first convention. Only 36 more sleeps. I am flying out earlier so I can spend time with my brothers who live in Brisbane and Caloundura I can't wait.

scooby doo loves scooby doo

Happy New Year everyone. Well school started yesterday so it is back to the regular routine (shock to be woken by alarm clock!) This is our lovely cat Scooby Doo. he is about 4 but suffers from brain damages as he was hit by a car at 9 months old. Still functions really well but has his moments when he goes of his rocker. He has lost some sense of smell and his left side of his face and eye have nerve damage, but we love him just the same. Well hopefully I can get some time for card making this week so hope to have another post soon.

Ciao Shona

Cool Kraft Boxes

I love the new SU Kraft boxes I have used the idea of extending the box with window sheet from Barb Bicknell a talented SU Demo. I have used champagne and silver glimmer paper with rhinestones. This box takes a 450gm box of roses chocolates I think about 4 or 4 don't quite fit (hehehe) I have also used the SU snowflake bigz die.
Only 11 more sleeps till santa comes!!

It took me a while but this is the finished product. I am quite happy how it turned out.

Heartfelt Stampin Up (R) Event in Auckland

Wow Wow Wow that is what i have to say about the Heartfelt Stampin Up (R) event in Auckland last saturday. This lovely wreath was made by the very talented Sophie Zadeh. She demonstrated some lovely Xmas decorations using Stampin Up (R) products so I am really excited to have a go at making this sometime soon.

I am so amazed at the talent that we have here in New Zealand and with about 130 Demonstartors and guests attending this event I came away inspired so I have been busy when able doing lots of little things starting to think ahead for Christmas which my family is hosting this year.

We also so had demonstrate, the talents of Julia Leece, Sharlene Mayer and Barbara Bicknell. These ladies rock and their presentations were fab so watch this space as I recreate some of the things they showed us.
