Spring Mini Launch Party Winners, and more...

Thank you so much everyone who was able to make it to the Spring Mini Catalogue Launch party held last Saturday, Kim and I had a wonderful time sharing the new goodies with you. Everyone was able to make three different Make n Take Projects, and Kim treated us to several "WOW"'s including White Stazon on Cello, and Faux Silk using the pretty Soft Summer set from the Mini.

We offered two prizes on the day, a Lucky Door Prize and a prize drawn from guests who placed orders of $100 or more on the day. Andrew drew them for us at the conclusion of the day as we recovered with a bottle of wine and yummy gourmet pizza.

Firstly, the Lucky Door Prize of A Spring Solitude Hostess Stamp Set and Wheel Bundle (from the last catalogue), Tombow Multi Glue and Signo White Gel pen was won by....

Leanne J of Wahroonga! Congratulations to Leanne, we'll arrange to deliver your prize along with your order very soon.

The Incentive Prize of a Simply Sent Card Kit was won by Joanne P of Kingsgrove, Well done Joanne!

Additionally, because I never actually finished my July Newsletter in my busyness preparing for the Launch, I'll announce the winner of my June competition of a "for a friend" Hostess stamp set.... Congratulations to Fiona R of Glenorie!

I'll finish with another card for Kim, this time made by my husband Andrew. He carefully selected a stamp set to use, Pun Fun, and a design to CASE from the Idea Book and Catalogue. He chose a colour scheme, around what else but PURPLE and did a wonderful job, all by himself. The card base is Pale Plum, stamped with Pale Plum using the Polka Dot background. The background panel of Perfect Plum was run through the Cuttlebug with the Tiny Bubbles embossing folder. The Pun Fun Birthday birdy, (so cute!) was stamped in Stazon, and coloured using the Inkpad Puddle technique and a blender pen. Some small stars punched in Elegant Eggplant, Pale Plum and Perfect Plum were inked and popped up using Stampin' Dimensionals, and a strip of Elegant Eggplant grosgrain ribbon was added to complete the card. Hope you like it!
