NZSU Pics of the Week 15 November 2015

What a great day we had at the inaugural Stampin' Up "On Stage" New Zealand event, our day was filled with excitement,(special announcements) fun, prizes, learning, meeting up with old friends and making new ones. A massive thank you must go to Emma and her team for all the hard work that went into making "On Stage" such a successful event. If you couldn't manage to join us this time, make sure you come along to the next "On Stage" to be held in April 2016.
Have a fabulous week.

NZSU Pics of The Week 1 November 2015

Good Evening fellow stampers, have you had a good week? I received a Stampin' Up order earlier this week with lots of Holiday catalogue products so I was able to create some more lovely Christmas cards and sets of 4 x 4 cards for friends, which I so enjoy. 

We are now in our first week of November and I am almost finished my second year as administrator of this blog, I look forward to completing this very enjoyable task each Sunday night, however there may be someone else who would like to take over this role and bring a fresh perspective to the site. Please send me an e-mail if you would be interested in taking over this role in the New Year.

Have a fantastic week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 25 October 2015

Here in Auckland we have had a beautiful sunny day, hopefully the rest of the country has enjoyed similar weather. We have my lovely sister in-law and 2 nieces visiting for the weekend, making it a great family weekend. 
How are your stack of Christmas cards coming along?  Exactly two months from today to Christmas day, every year I love the Christmas products and this year is no exception, I'm having a lovely time creating cards for myself as well as family and friends.
Enjoy the rest of this long weekend and have a fabulous week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 11 October 2015

Goodness how the year is flying by, 75 days until Christmas day and only 4 weeks until the first "On Stage, Auckland NZ" event. This is a wonderful opportunity to attend an exciting "Stampin' Up" event, holding this event in NZ makes it so much more accessible and affordable for many of us. It will be great to put faces to names and creations.
Have a fabulous week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 4th October 2015

Well it's great to be home again in our wonderful country, how blessed we are to live here. Our gardens have grown so much in the last month, thanks to the spring weather. What a shame it hasn't been so fine over the weekend, hopefully it will fine up for the 2nd week of the school holidays. For those of you who held special events for World card making day yesterday, I hope they were a resounding success for you and your guests.
Have an awesome week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 27 Sept 2015

Well this is the last post I will posting from the USA, we are now in Washington DC, which I love and will be back in NZ early on the 30th September. It means I haven't done any crafting for a month, that must be the longest time I have been away from stamping for about 4 years! I definitely struggled with New York, so many people and it was very hot while we were there which didn't help. I look forward to some peaceful creating when we get settled into our home again.

Big apologies to Kathryn Tyrrell for crediting her creation last week to Sally Robertson and many thanks to Sally for emailing me so I could correct my mistake.
Have an awesome week.
