Marelle Taylor and I are getting together again this time hosting an all-weekend Stampin’ Up! Stamp Camp. Escape for a weekend away with the girls and stamp and scrap to your heart’s content… It’s going to be heaps of fun!
We’ll kick off Friday night with a Retirement Party. Marelle and I will be clearing our stock of retiring stamp sets and accessories. You can grab a bargain and join in a make-and-take too.
On Saturday, there will be plenty of tables set up for you to work on some projects of your own, or you can join in a class or two and make some cute Easter projects, and learn some new techniques too. There will also be some challenges for you to join in, and maybe win a prize!
On Saturday night we’ll have a “card buffet” where you can build up your stash of handmade cards, or you can continue working on your own projects.
On Sunday we’ll have some more crafting, a Prize Presentation, and then after lunch finish up, say some sad goodbye’s and head back to reality.
The weekend will be held in the beautiful bushland setting of Merroo Christian Centre, at Kurrajong. Accommodation for the weekend is in comfortable twin share rooms, each with an en-suite. All meals are provided throughout the weekend.

I made this card a long time ago but I have never posted it on my blog because I could never get a good photo of it but it is always a popular card in my sample box and many people ask questions about it. I was asked to do teabag folding for a technique class… It sent chills down my spine when I was asked… I have never been a fan of teabag folding but I tried to keep it elegant…. what is more elegant then clean black and white.
The tiles are stamped images from “mostly flowers” and I punched out each tile with 32mm Square punch. Each diamond has 4 tiles which I have folded in this way:
I suggest giving teabag folding ago it is a great technique which I now really like, I would love to see what you create if you give it ago.
Thanks for stopping by.
