As you may know the national convention was held last week end. I had such a great time and have so many new ideas to share with you. I have also seen a number of the new products that will be launched in the new catalogue in September and I cannot wait to be able to share them with you.
At convention each year there is an awards night honoring the demonstrators who achieve in the areas of sales, recruiting, leadership, incentive trip, milestone award and demonstrator of the year. This year I received two awards – one in the $30,000 sales category and I ranked 22nd in the demonstrator of the year award. I would like to thank you all so much for your continued support throughout the years, without you I could not have gained these awards.
The embossing buddy (103083) is now available to order, please let me know if you would like to purchase one.
Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea
I held two morning tea’s in May to help raise money for the Cancer Council. My goal was to try and raise $200.00, we did fall just a little bit short of this goal and we raised $176.75. Thank you so much to all of the ladies who helped to raise this money for such a great cause. The winner of the raffle is Emily Jones, congratulation Em!
The projects that we did on the day will be posted on my blog.

Something to try
Coloured Embossing (depressed side):
Multipurpose platform, two cutting mats, an embossing folder, brayer and a classic ink pad.
Multipurpose platform opened to tab 1, one clear cutting mat, embossing folder with cardstock placed in the middle and one cutting mat.
If the embossing folder has an intricate or busy pattern you may choose to open the multipurpose platform to no tabs so the embossing does not cut too deeply into the cardstock.
1. Using the brayer apply ink to the depressed side of the embossing folder.
2. Place cardstock in the embossing folder and put through the big shot machine
