Here is a picture of the July Secret Sister gifts that I received. Aren't they amazing! I had suspicions that my Secret Sister might have been in WA but the stamp on this lot said NSW so I am really stumped. I am sure she is a perfectionist though because all of the items she has sent me have been expertly crafted.
Inside the bags were some gifts, the butterfly stamp 'All a Flutter' the Thank You Emobsslit die and a pack of sugar free lollies. I thought the lollies were so thoughtful as I am a diabetic and shouldn't have too much sugar. How spoilt am I?
To all those who have ordered from the Last Chance List (see earlier post) the postage is taking a little longer as SU has been inundated with orders. Please be patient, they will come. Also, some items have already sold out so if you are thinking about putting an order in, don't delay.

The card is in Not Quite Navy cardstock and the patterned paper is from the Urban Garden designer series paper. The flowers are from the Vintage Vogue stamp set and have been stamped in Not Quite Navy and Baja Breeze. The centre of the flower and the embellishments are the clear rhinestone brads. The leaves are the branch from the 2 step bird punch. The flower and leaves sit on cut down top note dies in Not Quite Navy and Whisper White. The box is made from the same but with the full top note dies. The box is held shut by some great magnets. Inside the box was a packet of Soho Hardware and the small heart punch. How spoilt am I? Both items are perfectly executed and I was so pleased to receive them. I won't find out who my secret sister is until the end of August. Not sure I can wait that long.
Tomorrow I will show you what I received today for my July gifts.
Don't forget to check out the Last Chance List and order anything that you want before they retire. The cardstock will be increasing in price in the next catalogue so you may want to stock up this month.
It opens up with the voucher inside. I have used Soft Suede cardstock and ribbon, Very Vanilla cardstock with an eyelet border edge and have used the Very Vintage wheel over the Soft Suede. The flower is made using six scallop circles which are alternate Soft Suede cardstock and DSP. The scallops were scrunched and then opened up and put together with a rhinestone brad.
The gift vouchers can be for any amount and there is no extra charge for the voucher. It is a great idea when you are not sure what the person has or their likes/dislikes. If you have an occasion where you could use a gift voucher just let me know.

You can view the Last Chance List here. The list is 8 pages long but it doesn't mean that all the items listed are going for good. For example, the punches in the new catalogue will be the new flat format, the makers, water colour crayons, stampin spots and paper packs will be the new colour families. You can get some good savings as some of the items are up to 50% off. Items are on sale from today until 31 August 2010 or WHILE STOCKS LAST! Just email me if you would like to place an order.
