I’ve been Tagged

Well, I have been tagged by Joanna, who is a Stampin’ Up! demo in Australia, so now I need to tell you all 7 things about myself, and 7 blogs that I like to visit so here goes:

1. I was a competitive Ballroom and Latin American Dancer for 11 years
2. I am mum to an angel son Cameron, and a 4 month old girl Jessica
3. The first car I ever owned was a Fiat Bambina
4. I have Bungy Jumped
5. I love to bake – biscuits, cakes, slices, you name it. But I don’t really eat much of it (luckily my DH does)
6. I have just become a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and so far I am liking it a lot!
7. I learnt to fly a plane, but never got my pilot licence.

Workshop Invitation

I am holding a workshop to introduce people to Stampin’ Up! products on Saturday 12 May and YOU ARE INVITED!!

We will be using Stampin’ Up!’s latest stamps, colours, and accessories to create projects you will love.

I will be demonstrating a gift box, greeting card & scrapbook page using various stamping techniques, PLUS you will have the opportunity to create your own greeting card to take home with you.

So bring a friend and come share a fun afternoon of paper crafting!

If you would like to attend, then please email me.

It’s today!

Stampin’ Up! New Zealand is open for business! I have just received a phone call giving me my demonstrator number, and advising that my starter kit will be here soon! It’s all very exciting!

So, if you live in Wellington and you would like to host a Stampin’ Up! workshop at your home then please email me. A Stampin’ Up! workshop is a fun way of learning about stamping & Stampin’ Up! products. You will learn project ideas and stamping techniques all in the comfort of your own home. By hosting a workshop you’ll have the opportunity to earn fabulous gifts, including free stamp sets.

I am hoping the new catalogue will be online to view in a few days, but if you would like your own copy of the catalogue, or if there are any products that you would like to purchase then please email me and I will be happy to help!

Have a great week.
Sharlene

Welcome

Hello and welcome to my blog. You may have heard that Stampin’ Up!® is coming to New Zealand, well the great news is that yes it is. Launching on 2 April, we will finally get the opportunity to purchase these great stamping and scrapbooking supplies.

This blog is designed to keep you informed about the latest happenings with Stampin’ Up!® A place to find out about the latest specials, when workshops are happening, order product, or just some stamping ideas and inspiration.

That’s all for now, but make sure you come back for an update on 2 April!

About Me

PhotobucketI discovered scrapbooking about 5 years ago whilst pregnant with my first child. I dabbled with a few stamps in my albums, but when Stampin’ Up! launched in NZ in April 2007 I just knew it was an opportunity too good to miss! Now, I definitely stamp & make cards more than I scrapbook, but love all forms of papercraft.
I am a stay at home Mum to 2 girls (8 weeks & 3 years) and 1 angel son, who certainly keep me busy! I love to craft as a form of therapy, but also so I can surprise family and friends with handmade cards and gifts.
Since joining Stampin’ Up as an Independent Demonstrator 2 years ago, my life has been transformed for the better! It has given me the opportunity to earn all my hobby supplies, as well as adding to our household income. But of even greater value, are the friendships I have made, the people I have met and the joy I get from sharing stamping with others.
I have grown in so many ways and am now doing things I would never have dreamed of. I have been honoured to be placed in the Top 10 in the Demonstrator of the Year awards 2 years in a row, as well as awards for sales and recruiting.
I hope you will enjoy looking at the projects on my blog as much as I enjoy creating them. I hope they give you something to smile at, and maybe even inspire you to go and create yourself.
