{Crazy for Christmas}

This set has been on my wish list for at least four years, and I just got it! Yep, even the demonstrators have wish lists . . .

I love the unusual Christmas colours in this design, which is Cased off of Tracey-Stamper, a demo in the USA. I also thought it was fun to teach the baby-wipe technique, just something fun and different using supplies you probably already have around.

The trees are coloured in using markers, which are on promotion starting November 10th! Previously, we could only buy either the entire set of else packs of twelve. From Nov 10-31, you can buy singles! Yahoo! The demos are thrilled about this option, too! Please check the promotions page for further information.

{Season of Joy}

This gorgous card is a take off of one of the many beautiful swaps I received at the Incentive Trip. I must apologize that I cannot give credit at this moment because my little box that had the swaps in there has disappeared into the black hole of my house.

I love to do Christmas projects in something other than the expected colours, and this set, Season of Joy, is such a winner! It's only available for a few more weeks, so grab it now!

{A special message}

Isn't this beautiful? this is one of the many, many cards I received over the last few weeks (I'll dribble those out to you over time!). I have felt really loved and cherished!
This one is made by my friend and fellow demonstrator Diane who lives in Oamaru. She made this up with a new set (one that might be coming in December?) called Live Your Dream. And she made it with the message that "things are not always black and white".
Thanks, Diane, for taking the time to make me a card!! Lots of love and hugs to you!

{Easy mini Album}

This is a gorgeous little project shown to Stampin' Up! demonstrators by Carey Cudney at our annual training convention this year. What I love about this is not only is it quick and easy, but it also can be made with just one sheet of 12x12 and a few scraps!

I've presented it here as a small album, but it can easily be a very special card as well, with or without photos. Simply put in sentiments, poetry, stamped images, etc in place of the photos.

Here I have made a little momento to Jared and myself. These photos are some of the shots from when my Dad drove down to both meet Jared for the first time and to take photos for our wedding annoucement. The journaling on the various tags are about the day, the proposal, the significant dates of our engagement, and a few memories. We both looked at those pictures and remarked how young we were! Oh, well, twelve years later we are still together, and that deserves a little celebration, too.

I've used the Le Jardin papers for this project along with the coordinating stamp set - Carte Postale. There is just a few days left for the Free Wheelin' promotion - buy the Carte Postale set and get the Leaves a la Carte wheel FREE! Email me to order before September 30!

{What a beautiful spring gift}

I wanted to share these lovely freesia with all of my blog readers and customers because they were particularly significant to me. And aren't they beautiful? These were an unexpected gift given to me from a dear customer, and the timing was well-placed to receive such a self-less gift from a fellow sister. We just never know how we may touch others, and I thank Cynthia for reaching out and touching me yesterday.

{My Incentive Trip Swap}

This is project is one I did last month using a peppermint tea bag. This revision was inspired by my friend, Janine. It's not traditional, but I think with a different sentiment inside, this could be done up for Christmas. You may see this if you are coming to any of my/our Christmas events!

I've used the set called One of a Kind from the Spring Mini Catalogue. Not only is it a great set, but it coordinates with the Boho Blossoms punch, making for quick "cutting out" of those tiny flowers. (many of us used this set for our swaps on the trip, and I think that is why!!)

The colours are inspired by our DSP papers called Berry Bliss. Add a dash of glitter, and I think these can be very Christmas-like.

Now the story on these is: I made up another batch for our Regional Training here in Auckland, which was last Monday. Monday night is traditionally our family night, but because I had the training to do and my husband was leaving that morning for Singapore, we moved our family night to Sunday evening. And mummy realized she still had swaps to finish .. . . so family night became a little Pedersen factory. Hey, my girls are happy to help if I let them use either glitter or snail! So I had to apologize in advance if the ribbon was cut shaggy or pieces a little crooked, as they may have been assembled by Sofie, my six year old! My eight and ten year old daughters are quite exact. Jared also struggle d . . . but I'm not complaining. I am blessed to have a partner who will pitch in and sponge Close to Cocoa on the edges when I need him!
