We run swaps,challenges, tutorials, product know how and cyberstamps and we arealways there to help and support each other when its needed.
So if you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand then please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.

I hope you enjoyed seeing the wonderful creations on offer at Andrea Buckland's Blog  What a clever lady she is!!
Without further ado here are my little creations.

I made this cute little baby gift set in one of my favourite colours, Baja Breeze
I bought a cheap papier mache box from the junk shop and used the scallop circle die to make a top and bottom for the box. They have been covered with a very pretty paper from the new Greenhouse Gala designer series paper pack  (117167). The flowers have been made with the new XL Fancy Flower punch ( 118076). I simply wet and crumpled four punches for each flower..I finished it off with the pretty a la carte stamp, All a Flutter (119194)
I love these little baby shoes!! The flowers were stamped with one of the flowers from the For Everything Set ( 116686) and I added the smallest flower from the Boho Blossoms punch to the centres. I made some of these a few years ago for my grand daughters fairy party (fairy slippers) and they were a huge hit..They are also great for baby showers filled with cello bags of chocolates.

The ark was made using tutorial from Lynn Pratt. ( you can find her here) I was so happy to see Fox and Friends (119165)  make its way into the new catty...such a cute little set!
                                 This is the other side of the ark featuring the ever so cute owls
The last item in my bay gift set is a card using the Baby Tees jumbo wheel (118621) . I kept this simple with a white embossed background and white taffeta bow

         My next offering is a little set that would be great for demonstrators to take to their workshops
OMG how cute is this owl!!!! The 2 step XL Owl (118074) is going to be very popular, how could you possibly resist buying this little fellow.. The Appointment book is covered in one of the papers from the  Greenhouse   Gala desgner series papers. I have added a pen holder to the front. The business card holder and keyring take just minutes to make and would be terrific little teacher gifts. I also made a ruler for this set but it seems to have gone walkabout
