Keeping in Touch

Hello and welcome to Kerry's crazy cardmaking. I've been very busy making cards and new paper craft pieces. There are so many talented and clever people out there. Thanks to those at Splitcoast Stampers, Ustamp and various people on You Tube, I have been learning and creating some gorgeous projects. I can never forget my friends at Stampin' Up! who started me on this paper route in he first place. A special mention goes to my upline and one of my dearest and longest friends, Cheryl Andrews. THANKYOU!

I'm going to get another friend to help me do to show me how to do more with this blog, so when that happens, I will take photos of my new creations and post them...

Until then, I'll chat again soon.

Hello, and welcome to spring! Yes, spring is here and so is the gorgeous Spring Mini Catalogue from Stampin' Up! It is bursting at the seems with the latest stamps and accesories. If you're anything like me, you love the new warmth of the sun peaking through the clouds and the fresh smells of the flowers blooming at this time of the year. The Spring Mini Catalogue is also blooming with stamp sets like 'One of a Kind' (with coordinating punch 'Boho Blossoms'), 'Sweet Serendipity' and 'Tart and Tangy' (with coordinating designer series paper 'Summer Picnic'). If you want a demonstration using these stamp sets, or if you're already thinking of Christmas 'Season of Joy' may appeal, contact me and we'll arrange a time for a workshop.

If you haven't caught up with the new Idea Book and Catalogue 2008-2009 yet, you really should. Not only does its 160 pages contain delicious new stamp sets but it also sports new punches, including a versatile Scallop Circle and new circle sizes, fresh designer series paper and a new range of In Colour shades. There are also lovely new hostess stamps to earn and don't forget the free merchandise and your copy of the new catty is still available. This month I'm giving my hostesses a special present for those who book with me. To get a preview of both catalogues go to

If you missed out on some of the stamp set from the 2007-2008 catalogue, I have some for sale and some catty's too! But you need to hurry as they're going fast.

I haven't told you of this month's special yet! Buy any one of the 5 preselected stamp sets and get the coordinating wheel for free! Yes, that's right, for free! The stamp sets are:

Merry, Merry
Artfully Asian
Nursery Necessities
Bodacious Bouquet
Carte Postale

All very beautiful sets and their wheels (all jumbos!) are just gorgeous.

If you're interested in techniques classes and/or project classes, they are coming up too.

If you haven't guessed yet, I love to stamp. Stamps have done a lot in my life. Not only have they blessed my friends and family with unique handmade cards for birthdays, Christmas and other occasions (like Father's Day) but they have helped teach my sons to read, sleep, toilet train, develop fine motor skills, spend precious time with their mum, announced my new baby to my friends and family, help with birthdays, my husband even gives his opinion. It is a family affair. Hope you enjoy it too. If you don't know how, contact me. I'll help.

If you want to know more about stamping or becoming a demonstrator, contact me.

Have a lovely day!
