Spent the Night with Paula & the Galz

Have been re-inspired. . .just spent a few hours with Paula, Tania and Bronwyn swapping ideas, chatting and playing with the new Autumn colours and the Big Shot! Woo Hoo. . .was heaps of fun and have a nice, simple (laugh) card to show for my time. Paula makes the lovliest cards and always uses great colour combinations. I really enjoy just watching someone else create; it gets my juices flowing and I should probably start writing my ideas down (when I get them) as when I come to expand upon simple concepts I sometimes hit a brick wall. . .

The added bonus from talking to Paula tonight was that she taught me a few more tricks for blogging including adding pages to my blog and being able to insert watermark writing on the photos I intend to upload in the next few days. . . Thanks so much Paula (for your patience and your expertise) you are now my 'go to girl for blogging'. Check out my "pages" and keep an eye out for my beautifully watermarked photographs in the next few days. ;-)

Anyway a few writing deadlines to meet so not really time to wax lyrical on the blog.

Hip love

Experimenting with the Uploading of Photographs!

I have set a challenge for myself this week - I am going to upload a heap of images of my card creations and other things that I have been making for the past few months. One of my friends Jill is most despondent about my lack of entries and I am going to take up the challenge to be more pro-active with respect to the blog site. My dilemma at the moment is placing a watermark on the fronts of the images recognising copyright in the images. . .so watch this space because I promise that there will be something to see sooner rather than later!

Arty Inkers Stampin' Up! Booth at NQ Baby & Children's Expo March 2010

Ruth and I exhibited at the recent NQ Baby & Children's Expo at the Cairns Convention Centre. It was a brilliant two days; we met so many new people interested in paper craft and were able to show off some of the great products that Stampin' Up! have to offer. I did a heap of scrap booking canvasses using the Pink Flamingo DSP and complimentary colours as the backdrop for the display and Ruth and I made cards in a variety of baby and children's themes. It was fun preparing for the booth and great to hear and see people's reactions to our display. Looking forward to our next booth at the Tully Craft Show in July. The winners of the baskets of Stampin' Up! goodies were Fay from Gordonvale (Saturday) and Jodie from Redlynch Valley (Sunday)- congratulations ladies and we trust you will enjoy the wonderful products!
