I’m really lucky to share my experiences at Stampin’ Up! Convention with some beautiful friends and this year I wanted to make them something really special to keep in their craft rooms even after Convention was over. I’ve made some little rag dolls before for gifts before – so I thought this would be fun for my Convention buddies.
Would you like to see them??
I made each of them as a bit of a reflection of each of the real life girls with their hair colour and coloured stockings that I thought suited them best. … of course I also made one for me too.
Meet the Stampin’ Up! Dolls….
Here is poor ‘Alisa’ on getting her legs sewn on. Don’t worry, she didn’t scream too much
A NUMBER of nights later sewing (I’m not a fast sewer)…..
Meet Miss Alisa…
The whole bunch.
I’ve used Stampin’ UP! Designer Series fabric for their legs/stockings and stamped with White Stayz On on the apron.
Here are a couple of fun picks of Miss Carolyn on her way to Convention and out and about. (You have to have a bit of fun in life right??!!)
Here we are at the Adelaide Airport – Miss Carolyn is about to stowaway in my handbag.
A quick cuppa before the first morning of Convention with roomies Miss Alisa an Miss Angela….
The first session is about to start!!!! Miss Carolyn is excited!!
LOVE Stampin’ Up! Convention. Love the people, love the crafting and LOVE Stampin’ Up!

I’ve got home today from a fabulous Stampin’ Up! Convention in Brisbane and then my beautiful family joined me and we had a week away doing the theme parks at the Gold Coast…. (check out the photo and the bottom of this post).
When I arrived home and opened up my computer I found not 1 but 2 great Stampin’ Up! promotions!! Here is the first one…
Best of Stamps
For Stampin’ Up!’s 25-year anniversary, we’re bringing back some of our favourite stamp images from the last quarter century and combining them into 11 sets, which will release—one set per month—through April 2014. Even better, along with some great classic images, each “Best of” set will also include a never-before-seen image!
The very first “Best of” is the Best of Flowers and is available in clear-mount #133342 Best of Flowers $25.95
*The single daisy is a never-before-seen image also coordinates with 1-1/4″ Scallop Circle punch; item 127811.
Daisy – Block B, Multiple Daisy – Block C, Hydrangea and Rose Bunch – Block D
Ever wanted to buy a single Stampin’ Up! stamp but not in a set? From now until 31 August 2013 (or while supplies last) we’re excited to offer five single-image stamps for you to choose from!
- These won’t be sent in our typical cases or packaging; they’ll be packaged in cello bags. If you’d like a case for your stamp, you can buy our Clear-Mount Stamp Cases that come in packs of four.
- This offer is available for clear-mount stamps only.
- The stamps won’t come with a Clear-Mount Block, and you’ll need to purchase a block separately if you don’t already have one. The recommended block sizes can be found on the flyer but this month they’re all Block size E.
- There’s no limit on how many stamps you can purchase.
- These stamps are only available through 31 August 2013, so get them while you can!
Click on the cute little shopper below to go to my online store to purchase any of these items or perhaps something off of the Retired list. See my last blog post for the links to the retired list.
So what have I been doing this last week? ……….
Happy Stamping …. and remember to live in the sun.

Last minute reminder folks!
Tomorrow the 30th of May is the last day to join as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and receive an extra $60 worth of goodies in your starter kit. It’s such a great deal. At the low price of $169 you can become a SU! Demonstrator to either get all of your stamping products at a 20% discount delivered straight to your door OR to start your very own business where you use your creativity to earn an income. It’s totally up to you.
I’d love to have you on my team The Midnight Inklings – we are a mix of both business and hobbyist Demonstrators and a super friendly bunch.
I’m on holidays with my family in Queensland after having attended an AMAZING few days at Stampin’ Up!’s 25th Anniversary Convention last week. Chris, the boys and I are having an absolute blast at Seaworld, Movieworld and later in the week Waterworld.
Stampin’ Up! Convention was SO good. I think the best I’ve been to so far and it was actually my 5th so that’s really saying something. Lots of giveaways (I’ve got a lot of new stamp sets ready to get inked up when I get home), my head is bursting with creative inspiration and business tips, amazing new friendships formed and existing ones strengthened…. And I danced my feet off at the new Awards Night After Party – oh my goodness was that ever an awesome party!
Next year Convention will be held in Melbourne from the 22nd until the 24th of May – I’d love you to join my team the Midnight Inklings and come along and experience 700 plus women enjoying what makes them happy… STAMPING! Email me or call me on 0401 857748 to chat and find out more information about all the perks of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, the great business opportunity that you might be looking for or simply the 20% discount on all Demonstrator purchases.
When I get home to South Australia I’ll be back to normal blogging with more photos and ideas from Convention but I wanted to share with you ASAP my Convention swap (a card front you swap with others – that way you end up with lots of samples of others work, techniques and inspiration). I hope you like it!! There is a special feather on it called a Hymn Book Feather and the card is made using the technique Emboss Resist.
Do you love my feather? Like to know how to make the feather and card? Leave me a little comment lovin’ to let me know and I’ll put a little tutorial together.
Remember to Like and Share my business Facebook page too as I update this page almost daily with all things stamping.
Happy Stamping everyone,
