Project Life

I am starting up classes as from tonight.  They will be held on the first Friday night & the last Wednesday night of the month, so please contact me if you would like to come along.

Project Life is quick, fun & EASY!

We will be creating 2 x 6″ x 8″ pages both of which will have a section for your journaling & a space for your photo.  You can also change it to what you like & have 2 or 3 photos to your page.

This is the perfect time to make a start on all your photos sitting in boxes at home or even printing off a couple of your favourites by putting them into a scrapbook.

This month we will be playing with the lovely new “Lift Me Up” Bundle from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue AND the coordinating “Carried Away” DSP from the 2017 SAB Catalogue.

If you would like to attend, please contact me.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Congratulations

I haven’t posted in a little while due to being ill, although not 100% well, I thought I would try & start posting again.  There is nothing like the feeling of excitement & sitting down to your craft desk, ready to create & “BLANK”.  Luckily, that didn’t happen with this card.

My card today is one I sent to a friend, Naomi who recruited her very 1st recruit a couple of weeks ago.  I couldn’t post this card until she received it.

I thought the “Lift Me Up” Bundle from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue was perfect for her card.  The Bundle includes the “Lift Me Up” Stamp Set & the “Up & Away” Thinlit Dies.  There is also coordinating “Carried Away” DSP in the 2017 SAB Catalogue.  Don’t you just love it when SU! make it so easy to create?

To create my card, I watercoloured the bottom part of a piece of Shimmery White with Pear20170131_054021_resizedblog-2 Pizzazz Ink & Aqua Painter.  I then did the sky in Soft Sky & Pool Party Inks along with the Aqua Painter.

Once it was dry, I masked off the top part of the sentiment “………… Congratulations” with Sticky Tape, inked the “Congratulations” in Memento Tuxedo Ink, removed the mask & stamped direct onto the coloured card.  The card was then layered onto the Base Card – Calypso Coral.

The clouds were stamped onto scraps of Whisper White using Soft Sky Ink before cutting with the coordinating Cloud Thinlit Die by running through the Big Shot.  The Balloons were stamped onto scrap Whisper White, the large one in Marina Mist Ink & the smaller one in Calypso Coral Ink.  They were then cut using the Thinlit Dies by running through the Big Shot.

Both the Balloons & Clouds were adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

As I have a saying with my team “Onwards & Upwards“, I wanted to include it on the card, so I cut a piece of Whisper White down to the size I wanted, wrote the words with a Project Life Journaling Pen & cut them to size before adhering to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

It’s a very simple card but one that I am happy with.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Hey Chick, Thanks

If you have seen the 2017 SAB Catalogue, you will have seen the great little “Hey, Chick” Stamp Set.  They are just so cheeky & I will admit I am a lover of chooks.  Today’s post is showcasing this set once again.  In fact, I started out casing the Card on Page 16 but it soon took off on its own.  It was perfect for a couple of Thank You Cards I needed this month.

You can find another card using the same set here.

Yep, I’ve used the fantastic Watercolour Pencils from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.  As you have probably seen over the internet, we are all crazy about them.  Be sure to add them to your supplies, you too will love them.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Thank You

My post today is using the gorgeous “Beautiful You” from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.  Last week, we had a challenge to create a card or project using something from the new Occasions Catalogue.  Well, with everything going on, I have only just managed to do mine, but hey, better late than never.

In fact, I’ve created the cards to send out to my customers in January.  I did a couple in each colour.

Have you noticed the “Brick Wall”?  I created that with the Early Espresso Watercolour Pencil & then softened the lines & a little blending with my Blender Pen.  I also “Paper Pieced” my dress.

Just a reminder to use the January Hostess Code when placing an order Online, as you will receive a free gift at the end of the month.

Don’t forget you can download your FREE Tutorial by clicking on the link above the photo.

Until next time, Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Stepped Up

As promised, today’s post is a stepped up version of the one I posted on Tuesday.  You can also find the Free Tutorial there too.

All I’ve done is introduce a couple of extra pieces of Card.  I’ve stamped my images direct onto a piece of Whisper White Card before layering onto a piece of Watermelon Wonder Card & then to the Base Card – Dapper Denim.

I die cut a piece of Watermelon Wonder  with the Layered Circles Framelits before layering behind the Stitched Circle but only to 1 side.  To finish my card I then adhered Rhinestones to the Card Front instead of the Metallic Sequin Assortments. 

Why don’t you try stepping up a couple of cards – it will create another whole new WOW!

Don’t forget SAB 2017 & the 2017 Occasions Catalogue start 4 January 2017.  For every $AUD90.00 you spend (excluding P&H), you can choice a FREE product from the SAB 2017.  Of course, the more you spend, the more free stuff you receive.

Until next time, Enjoy!

Happy Birthday

I thought I would share a sneak peek at one of the fun Stamp Sets available while SAB 2017 is on.  Don’t forget this starts 4 January through to 31 March 2017.  All you have to do is blog-insidespend $90.00 (excluding P&H) & receive any of the products available in the SAB 2017 Catalogue for FREE.  Of course, the more you spend, the more FREE products you receive.

You may recognise the card, as it is the one on the cover of the Catalogue.  Yep, I’ve cased it.  Sometimes, doing this helps me to get ideas on how to use certain Stamp Sets or products.  You could always chop & change to suit yourself.

I am so happy that SU! now have Watercolour Pencils – I have missed them.  Yep, they will be available for purchase in the new 2017 Occasions Catalogue.  Use them with your Blender Pen or Aqua Painter.

Be sure to stop by in a couple of days, as I have a stepped up version of the card.
