Stampin'Up Party and RAK

This afternoon I had my Stampin'Up party. It was really fun, we did two projects. The first one was with stamps, crayons and coloured inks. Not something I have done before and probably not something I would do in the future, but kids would really love this. In fact Rebecca already used it on her Father's Day project this evening.

The next project was a card with a folder. These stamps I really loved, and I ended up ordering this stamp set as well. The other thing I was really impressed with was the quality and brightness of the inks. I've ordered a couple of those too, one of them is real red, which I used on the second project.

All supplies are from Stampin'Up.

With the size of my order (uhum), I received a free catalogue , but I've already got one. So, I've decided to give mine away. Even if you cannot get any of the Stampin'Up products in your country it's a great inspiration, as there are many samples in there. Leave a comment before Friday (June 20th) afternoon and I will draw a winner on Saturday morning.

It will be Father's Day tomorrow and I've sent off my dad's card and gift album earlier this week. I'm hoping he will have received it in time, otherwise he'll get a virtual look at it first, as I will reveal it tomorrow. However, it's not Father's Day in Australia tomorrow, that won't be until the first Sunday in September. And as we'll be leaving Australia in two weeks, this would mean David wouldn't have a Father's Day this year. Tough! Well, actually we decided to celebrate it tomorrow as well. It wasn't until today that I started on my project (whatever that was going to be, as I hadn't decided yet), mainly because there was a chance David would have to fly to England this evening, as he was waitlisted on the Sunday afternoon flight. Luckily he managed to get on the Sunday flight, so we've got him home at least in the morning. I finished my project and the good thing is, you'll only have to wait until tomorrow to see it.

So, I'll see you tomorrow?

Wow, inspiration is always welcome.
We already treated my hubby (and the father of my kids) on a few presents this Saterday for Fathersday. Cause he is away for a week the kids surprised him with schoolmade projects.

Love Stampin'up. You made beautiful cards. And yes here in the Netherlands we don't have SU up the cataloque would be great. Thanks for this nice giveaway.
I love the fathersday nook/card you made. Such a great idea to put the drawings behind the picture. And love the color combination. Bye Irene from the Netherlands

Ik vind beide projecten er erg leuk uitzien. De eerste is een zeer kleurrijk geheel en ik vind vooral de vlinders erg leuk.
