A lovely night, another sneek peek and the news about the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! Monthly Blog Hop!
Stampin' Up! Australia Autumn Winter Mini Catalogue - The Big Shot is here!

Art With Heart Blog Hop #3

Time for another Blog Hop from my lovely team of talented demonstrators!

There are now over 90 demonstrators  in the Art with Heart team, spread throughout Australia. Not everyone can make the blog hop, but I do have some of the other blogs listed in my left hand sidebar. We are always looking for new stampers to join our fun and friendly team, so if you would like to enquire about joining the Art with Heart team, e-mail me for more details. We have a fantastic very active and fun team on-line forum, a strong focus on scrapbooking as well as cardmaking and stamping, an optional business building club, catch-ups, lots of opportunity to swap and share cards and Stampin' up! products, monthly challenges not to mention lots of friendly and supportive fellow demonstrators. We can even put you in contact with other demonstrators in the team, so you can hear for yourself how much they get from being a demonstrator in the Art with Heart team.

This month's blog hop features some of the yummy products from the Autumn Winter mini catalogue which go on sale this week! All you need to do is follow the link at the end of the post, to go onto the next person's blog, until you are back to here. If you leave a comment on each person's blog within the next 72 hours, you can also be in the draw to win some blog candy! Just leave a comment on each persons blog within 72 hours and then email Nikki Sadler to have your name entered in the draw.

You would have come to my blog from the lovely Nikki Sadlers blog. Nikki joined our team in May last year and already has a fabulous little team. She is based in Aspendale gardens and does classes and workshops and has regular team get togethers, so if you want a fun and talented mentor in Stampin' Up!, or want to go along to some great classes, give Nikki a call.

I have chosen to showcase some of the fabulous vintage sets in the new catalogue (I bet that didn't surprise you!). This set called Vintage Vogue, is really versatile and looks fabulous with the new In-Colours Rich Razzleberry and Soft Suede. The Very Vintage wheel is also VERY lovely.
