In a spin...

Where do I start with life at the moment? Busy!

I demonstrated at the ACTSA stamp camp over the weekend and I had a lot of fun! Thank you to all the ladies who made me feel very comfortable and very welcome. I hope you will have me back :) We all made 40 atcs to swap and you should see my fat little folder with all of the beautiful atcs that I received in return! Thank you!

My atc swap is growing nicely with a few more joining. Plus I already have the first set in - thanks Jo! They are amazing for your first atcs! Very fruity :)

I've been busy stamping up some cards for magazine requests too, which I've been really enjoying.

The Scrap and Stamp Fundraiser that I am helping to organise for our school is coming together and I will start advertising this week. So if you are in Canberra, keep the 10th September free! It is going to be awesome!

Starting to freak out about Kiwiscraps and meeting all of these people who I have never met before, lol. I still have to finish packing the Mystery Class kits and they are good! Wendy has done an amazing job with the project. Plus I will have a surprise for those that can't make Kiwiscraps - keep an eye on the website once Kiwiscraps is over.

August kits for Lime Tart are coming along well. I've cut my designer's time for creating very short this month :( Due to getting new stuff in and it only just arriving!

Oh and then there is tax..... now I have to go and start filing and doing figures....

Gallery, atcs & a brag

July's beautiful Lime Tart Gallery is now online.

Be inspired by the gorgeous layouts from our talented designers
Shirley Chai, Samantha Dorn and Gabbie Coburn. You'll love what they've done with
this month's kits.

The 12x12 is still available for purchase but if you haven't grabbed
one already, the 6x6 Kits are all gone!

Now atcs - wow! Thank everyone so far that has said they will have a go! This is going to be fun. I'll get back to you all individually on postage stuff this weekend. But still time for everyone else to join in!

It's school holidays here so in between entertaining the children I have been working on class samples for the ACTSA stamp camp next weekend. I'm now getting very excited about it.

I must finish on a little brag too - Lime Tart is now selling to New Zealand, US, England and Japan! How cool is that?!

Would you like to swap with me?

ATCs that is.....

I'd like to propose an atc swap hosted by me. An atc is an Artist Trading Card and the only rule is their size. They must be 2.5 inches x 3.5 inches in size. Not overly bumpy as most people store them in baseball trading card sleeves, although I have been able to put some quite bumpy ones in my sleeves.

Theme is "fruity" - you can interpret that however you like.

There is some good information here on atcs.

Don't forget to put some details on the back - name, title, date, email address, and number of atcs (eg 1/7).

You will need to send in 6 cards and you will get 6 different ones back. If you want to keep one of your own, then make 7 and keep one for yourself. You need to also include a self addressed and stamped envelope for me to return them to you. Overseas entrants are very, very welcome! Contact me for return postage details :)

Let me know if you need more details. Let me know if you want to participate. Send atcs to this address.

***EDITED TO ADD - due date in my PO Box - 22nd August.***

More secret santa!

My gorgeous secret santa revealed herself to me last week... Thanks Angela! But she also told me there were some things missing in the photo that I took, so she searched in her car and found a few extra little things, lol. I received them in the mail today - a great SU! punch, some SU! attachments and some Rob & Bob gelly tile things. Thanks again Angela! I love it all :)

ATC Swap

I recently hosted an atc swap with friends. The theme was Rainbow and we used creative license and added in white and black. There were three groups. Here are two of the groups. I'm yet to take a pic of the third one - oops :(

This is a closeup to show the gorgeous dimension and detail in the black atc.

I'll try to remember to take a pic of group #3 (which is really group #1) tomorrow.

Secret Santa in July

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Whoever you are! I have absolutely no idea who you may be but THANK YOU!

Hubby went to the mail box yesterday and there was a missed parcel slip in there from Saturday, we were all out at work and sport.

So today I get a box absolutely chock full of fun stuff! Those ribbons are gorgeous! I love them! The stamps are very cool! I love the diamonds and they will be perfect for some atcs that I have to do for stamp camp. The chocolates - mmmmm, well you can see by the photo that they were popular. Unfortunately hubby and Pegs were home and helped to consume them. And the inkpads, well I am converted to SU! inkpads now :)

Again THANK YOU!! Please let me know who you are!
