Happiness is stamping with friends!

Spring Mini Catalogue is here!


DSCN1792Hi everyone!

It has been a while hasn’t it!!! Our new IB&C was released on Apr 1 and … now … finally we have a BRAND NEW mini catalogue to drool over!!! I am soooooo excited about this mini catty! I just found so much to love in it … and found it very hard not to resist ordering too much for myself!


IF YOU WOULD LIKE A COPY OF THIS GORGEOUS MINI CATALOGUE … THEN CONTACT ME AND I WILL POST ONE OUT TO YOU!!! This catty runs from Aug 1 through to Nov 30. (Or click on the catty pic … to open the online catalogue!)

There is so much to show you … but I will just start with the sweetest set … and probably my favourite in this catty. This is called “Great Friend” and is a 5 piece stamp set for $31.95. It is great value … because it is so versatile!

Great Friend

I have created a special range of cards for my upcoming Card Buffet using this set … but I will show you those another day. In the meantime … check out this lovely card created using this yummy set!!!

Great Friend - Blue

Card Recipe:

  • Stamp Set: Great Friend – Spring 2009 Mini Catalogue
  • Cardstock: Night of Navy – A5 (14.8 x 21); Bashful Blue – 10.1 x 14.4cm
  • Inks: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue

I was in a bit of a hurry to get this post done … so went looking for some inspiration to create a super quick card. (The  boys are waiting for me to come and watch the footy with them. Sandy & the girls & I all barrack for St George/Illawarra Dragons in the NRL … and they are playing Melbourne Storm tonight – GO THE DRAGONS!!! ) I found this gorgeous design created by “Janeybell” -> {Friend}. Thanks Sarah for sharing this card on SCS … I hope you don’t mind me CASING your design!

So … what else is in the new mini? … here is another peek …

Check out the lovely corduroy buttons & the pretty rub-ons!!!

Off to watch the footy … I will post this tomorrow morning! (You’ve already scored a bonus post today!!! 😀 )

  1. Love the card!!. Whats a card buffet? I associate buffet with food can’t imagine thats the meaning of a card buffet though.
    Andrea adds: A card buffet is an event where you have a choice of cards to create … and you pay a fee to use supplies and then $2 (or similar) per card that you make! You can make as many cards as you like … you can do multiple copies of one card … or create one of all the samples available! Totally your choice from the “buffet”! I will be posting more details on my blog in the next day or so! Hugs Andrea xxx


  2. I’m loving this card too! Such fabulous eye candy and hope you enjoyed your holidays this past July!! Isn’t it fun to have some time off and enjoy some R&R! You sure have been hitting it hard in stamping land…. I bet your stamp camps are just a hoot! (Wish I was closer!) SMILES… 🙂
    Andrea adds: I sooooo wish you were closer, too! It was nice to have some time to stamp during the hols … but back to the grind again now! xxx
