NZSU Pics of the Week 30 August 2015

Hi Dee Ho Stampers, well it's started those Christmas cards are beginning to be posted! Where has this year gone? What an exciting Stampin Up year it's been so far and now we're all looking forward to the opportunity of attending the first "On Stage" event. If you haven't registered yet you should do, if the Stampin Up conventions are anything to go by, "On Stage" is going to be amazing, so awesome to be among so many like minded people and such fun.
As per my post last week, we will be away from this Thursday for 4 weeks, I will endeavor to post on time over this period but bear with me if my timing is a little out.
Have a great week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 23 August 2015

Is Spring nearly here? It's going to be a great weekend weather wise for most of New Zealand. I'm heading to Christchurch this weekend to visit our youngest Grandson and his Dad as well as my dear sister in-law. 
Brian and I are travelling overseas on the 3rd September returning to NZ on the 30th September, we are visiting the USA and Canada, so the NZSU Blog posts may be a little late sometimes. Most of the hotels we are staying at have Wifi, however we are on a 9 night cruise into Canada which may prove a little challenging, last year we experienced only limited internet connection while on a cruise. So apologies in advance, I will keep in touch as best I can over this time.
Have a fantastic week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 16 July 2015

What a beautiful day we've had here in Auckland, the sun has been shining all day, a great relief after a lot of rain this week.
Congratulations go to Mary Reeve and Jacque Williams,  as well I'm sure a lot of help from Robert Williams, for hosting an amazing "Extravaganza" in Napier this weekend.
Have a fantastic week everyone.

NZSU Pics of the Week 9th August 2015

Hi, I'm guessing many of you are waiting with baited breath for your SU "brown boxes" to arrive and some may have already received their pre-orders. The Holiday Catalogue is filled with such great products that like many others I found it difficult to choose what to order first. I really enjoy Christmas, so I'm very excited about the Christmas products that I've ordered, which should be arriving in the next couple of days.
Marilyn Meadows one of our fellow demonstrators has been travelling in the USA and has been posting some of her experiences on her Blog, this week she posted a photo of herself at the Stampin' Up Convention in Salt Lake City, how awesome is that?
Have a fantastic week everyone.

NZSU Pics of the Week 2 August 2015


Hi Stampers, I'm in Melbourne again this week my sister is in hospital again and very unwell. So I've scheduled this post to publish on Sunday night, I hope it works as I haven't tried this particular function previously. I love how all the new products keep inspiring everyone, just take a look at whats been posted this week, gorgeous work Ladies.
Absolutely excited with all the upcoming products in the Holiday Catalogue, can't wait to get my hands on some of these new products.
Have a great week everyone.

NZSU Pics of the Week 26 July 2015

Hi everyone, I know some of you have had a huge weekend at the Auckland Extravaganza and by the looks of the photos on facebook, it was a definite "WOW" day. Congratulations to all who were involved.
A huge Congratulations must go to Kristine McNickle who has been appointed to the first "Stampin' Up" Global Events Council, awesome Kristine.
I have spent a good part of this afternoon making 4 x 4 note cards using the Butterfly Basics stamps and thinlits, I have to admit being smitten with this bundle and can't seem to keep away from it.
Have a great week everyone.

NZSU Pics of the Week 19 July 2015

I hope you have all had a great week especially those of you enjoying some fun times with children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews during the school holidays. I visited Christchurch with two of my grandsons for five days this week and we had a lovely time, one of the high-lights was our visit to Orana Park, even though it was extremely cold we loved it.
Have an awesome week everyone.

NZSU Pics of the Week 12 July 2015

Well here I am back in Auckland after spending a week Melbourne and this Wednesday I'm off to Christchurch with two of my Grandsons for the remainder of the school holidays. We went to The Warehouse this afternoon to buy, boots, jackets, scarves, gloves and beannies to keep out the worst of the cold. I am reliably informed that the best place to take kids to play in the snow is "Hilltop", so if anyone has a better alternative please let me know.


There are some splendid cards appearing on blogs and facebook using the new products ; "Butterfly Basics" stamps and thinlits have obviously been a huge success and the new "In Colours" are also very popular, I'm really enjoying using the new Tip Top Taupe, both the ink and cardstock.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week.

NZSU Pics of the Week 5 July 2015

Good Afternoon all, I have to post this a little earlier than usual as I have just had an email from my brother-in-law, in Melbourne advising that my sister has been admitted to hospital again, so I'm off over there to help out where I can.

I know a few of you will be holding school holiday classes for children, I hope they go well and you have lots of interest. Lets cross our fingers that the weather isn't too bad. 

I'm coming back from Melbourne on Friday night as I have booked flights to take two of my grandsons down to Christchurch in the 2nd week of the holidays, to visit with Southern branch of the family.

Have a wonderful week.
