Where are you in blog land

Oh my. I havent written on here in a while, nearly since I started up my facebook page. I have put things on there and well, forgot here, since I have been making posting there and playing with new things. So much stuff, not near enough time. I apologize if you have been looking here and nothing is going on, I have to remember to update everything. We think it is easy to have all this social media to advertise things, but sometime too much is not a good thing. I will from now on make sure I update here as I update the facebook group.

We did have a wonderful team day where we raised money for Ronald McDonald house and one of the things we were taught to make was a gorgeous box card.  Since my daughters 15th birthday was coming up I thought I would make my first one for her. I was very happy with how it turned out.
I used a stamp set called Sketched Birthday, a bit of glimmer paper, our gorgeous Gingham Garden Dsp and some Melon Mambo as the base colour. It took no time at all to make but the look on my daughters face was priceless when she realized this flat card stood up in its own special way.

I will post more often in here now my head is not spinning with all the media haha :-) You can find Ratherbstamping also on facebook, incase I get lost again :-( Crafting is so much more easier than blogging so I am off to play again.

What you have been waiting for!! The new 2013-2014 Catalogue.

Well hello,

This morning brings us some lovely sunshine (if you live near me or I do hope you all have it) and more exciting than that is our new catalogue!!!

Stampin Up have updated the colour palettes a little to keep with the trends but wow so many new yummy things. I have been busting to share this with you since we got it in May. I know a few have it in their hands already, are your wish lists as long as mine? If still haven't got yours yet, let me know and we can get one to you. You can click on the catalogue above or the link below this to view it if you cant just yet. CLICK HERE  to view if the other link doesn't work for you.

If you thought like me, wow this is great, wait, there is more!!! (I feel like the steak knife guy on TV)
You can also get 25% off 3 selected greeting stamp sets in either Wood Mount or Clear. See below or click on the picture and go to special offers.

Well all I am off to have a cuppa and see if I can get my wish list just a tad smaller. (this will probably only make it bigger Im affraid) Enjoy.

Seasonal Catalogue Blog Hop

Hi everyone!!
What a great day to pop in as I am doing a blog hop with 25 my fellow demonstrators from ESAD. We are all showing off one item from the seasonal catalogue.

What is ESAD?
ESAD stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and it is an on-line group just for Australian and New Zealand Stampin' Up! demonstrators.

We so love what we do and not only do we love to share it with our customers, friends, and wonderful blog visitors, but we share our love for what we do with each other as demonstrators. We run swaps, challenges, tutorials, product know-how, and cyberstamps, and we are always there to help and support each other when it is needed.

So if you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand, then please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.

You may have just hopped over from  Ann Gerlach but not to worry if you havent, if you follow the links at the bottom of each page you will make it to everyones little home on the web and see some of the most gorgeous items. Dont forget to leave a little message to let them know you have been by.
So grab a cuppa sit down and enjoy.....

Today I am showing the Pop-Up Posie Designer Kit from page 18. I loved what I saw so many people making with this so I thought I would give it a go. So so easy. Today I made two cards - one with a ruffled flower and the other with a nice neatly formed flower so you can see the different styles and a little gift box for something special. If you want to know anything about this gorgeous kit, please email me and I can let you know.

I hope you have enjoyed your stay but it is now time for you to hop over to
Sharlene Meyer's to see what she has to show you.
