The Spring Mini finished yesterday (goodbye Seasons of Joy! I will remember our time together fondly! - and keep all my digits crossed that you come back to me in April!) (OK>> weird drama bit over!!)
BUT today, the summer mini starts, and there are some VERY yummy things in there! I have been playing with my stash a lot these last few weeks, but my camera is still on the blink (Santa, are you listening??) so I will take the stash to work tomorrow, and use one of theirs!!
In the meantime, Stampin' Up (who obviously haven't given us enough awesome deals this year!) have got another promotion running all through December.
There are 12 different products - something for stampers and scrapbookers alike.
Check it out at http://www.stampinup.co.nz/ or email me for more information.

This is one of my free sets - it's called pick a petal. And you'd think that would be flowers, right? well it is, but some incredibly talented people (not me!) looked at the petals and decided they could be other things! And this is one of them!
The words are from the level one hostess set "so many sayings". If you haven't seen this set, take another look - it comes as three stamps to be mounted on three blocks, but no one anywhere says that is what you have to do with them! Mine all got cut up (the beauty of being able to mount your own stamps!) and stuck on to lego blocks! So three stamps which were "kind of ok", became 35 stamps that are totally awesome and usable for all sorts of different occasions, without the need for markers and the stamp a ma jig (not that there is anything wrong with using those for sentiments, but sometimes you just want a quickie!) And this was a quickie - hence the smudge! lucky it's just a sample! ;) oh- how slow, I should have said - my ten year old did it! lol

It also uses afternoon tea DSP - also in the new mini. These are available from 1 December to 31 March 2009. Let me know if you want to see a catalogue.
by the way - that ribbon does NOT sit like that in real life!! I donlt know WHY it looks like that!! It sits flat to the paper - and this bugs me, because my ribbon normally looks skewiff and weird, but this one turned out ok!! Typical that i can't get it on camera!

This one is from Margot Zwegers in the the south of the Netherlands. Thanks Margot - I love orange and green together :) Sounds like such an odd combination, but looks so good :)
And this one is from Inge Groot, who I am sooooo jealous of!! Look at that colouring!! It's amazing!! And I love Matilda's. They are so girly :) Unlike me!!

I have a couple of bookings for workshops and I am soooooo nervous!! As I've said before, I'm not creative, and these ladies are so crafty, and have been stamping for years - they should probably be demo'ing to me! But my upline (Hi Sharlene!!) told me to keep it simple, so that's the plan!! :) I tend to overanalyse things!!!
But in the meantime, I have been cruising around Splitcoaststampers (what do you mean what's that??? Where have you been??? Go immediately and check it out!! don't forget to come back tho!!) and have ahd my fingers crossed for weeks that some of the stamps in the mini catalgue in the US will be in ours, and it arrived today, and I am glad!! Can't tell ya much (or anything in fact!!) but I am a very happy chicky!! (My bank account might not be so pleased!)
So.. no pics today, but just a check in and a drive on!

It's a bit blurry, but this card idea I got from a blog I visited, and I thought I had it saved but my favourites obviously aren't as well-labelled as I thought! So I am very sorry to the person whose idea I used but I loved it! Her card was way better too but my paper supply was limited!!

I now have stuff to share, and places to link to and pictures to put up, and I have no idea how to do it!!
So.... today's sharing, is a swap I signed up for on this blog that I can't link, but I can copy and paste - haha!!
so this is Karin's blog, and she is in the Netherlands and wants to set up the biggest swap ever, with people from ALL over the world.
And I know no one knows about my blog yet, so the chances of me getting anyone else to go there are pretty slim - but in the future when people DO read me, they will know where it came from :)
Ok, so I chickened out tonight, and copied and pasted, but - later in the week, I will try and post a picture!! Woohoo - exciting stuff! Stay tuned :)

I have been toying with the idea of a blog, and of becoming a Stampin Up demonstrator, and so I finally decided what the hey! In the immortal words of Nike "Just DO It!!" So I did!!
And this is the result: Stampin by the seat of my pants!
Why that name? Well, I am pretty new to the stamping world, and am pretty much learning on the hop, or flying by the seat of my pants as it were - so hence my blog name! :)
I hope to get photos up here soon of the stuff I am doing, and will apologise now and in advance because (as newbies often do!!) I CASE a lot of stuff, and so if you see your work up here, and I haven't given your name or your blog address, PLEASE don't be offended. It just means I found your lovely work before I had a place to link to, and you are currently in my "must copy this it's gorgeous!" folder, and I am very new to blogging and have NO CLUE as to how to link. So if you do see and recognise your stuff, let me know, and I will (TRY!!) and link you :)
So.. here's to a long and happy and stampin; future for me and my blog, and I look forward to sharing my creations and CASEments with you all :)
