… meets “Christmas in the Making” which is on Page 16 of the 2017 Holiday Catalogue. I love it when I can get multiple uses from my stamps.
I actually love the “Feeling of Christmas” on the same page but left it too late for my order to arrive in time for the class, so I set about trying to recreate the card on Page 17 of the Catalogue using one of my sets in my stash. I think I did it, although a little different, but different is good!
My card today is one of the 2 we created in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class. I am happy to say the ladies loved it!
This month the theme is “Teacher’s Gifts“. I don’t have any need for these gifts, but it is lovely to create something different & be out of your comfort one at the same time.
Not sure of what is Kylie’s International Highlights? It is where Demonstrators from all around the world take part in a monthly Blog Highlight. It’s a great way to get to know other Demonstrators & see projects using current Stampin’ Up!® product.

My project today is actually one that I created for one of my “Creative Classes” using the “Delightful Daisy” Suite. This Suite is my all time favourite from the Annual Catalogue but haven’t really showcased any of the cards I’ve created. I sometimes remember AFTER I’ve mailed the cards that I hadn’t taken any photos.
I think Post-It Note Holders are always very handy, so while creating my holder, I thought I would do something a little different & turn it into the shape of a “bag”. The handle has been created using the gorgeous Daffodil Delight Double Stitched Ribbon. Don’t you love it?
Seeing as though the ‘bag” was so cute, I thought it would be lovely to have a matching card to go with the gift, so out came the Suite once again. I’m glad I did, as I am a little happy with the final result.
The gorgeous Petal Burst EF has been used both on the bag & the card – not sure if you can easily see it. It finished the projects off perfectly.
I am loving the coordinating little “bag” & the card. I do hope you do too.
Be sure to check out all the other lovely creations when you pop on over to Kylie’s Blog. Don’t forget to go & vote for the ones you love & leave them a little love!
Today I am sharing with you a card we created in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class last week. I wanted to try & see if I could use the Embossing Paste a different way.
When I started, I wasn’t too sure how it was going to turn out but after some trial & error I think I am finally happy with the outcome. I love it when I can get multiple uses from my craft supplies. I call this “Painting with Embossing Paste” – is that such a thing?
I have used a couple of retired In Colours – Lost Lagoon & Mint Macaron but you could easily create the same card using current colours.
Realising that I no longer have many stamp sets for males, I went straight for my back up set – “Lovely as a Tree“. It has been sooooooo long since I’ve had a play with this set that I thought it would be great to showcase at our “Cards @ Toogoom” class last Friday week.
As you know this is one of the longest sets available in the Catalogue.
I did start to case the card from the Annual Catalogue, Page 137, but as usual it sort of went off on its own.
My card today is one we created in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class last Friday. Please feel free to come along each Friday morning at 9.30am at the Community Hall.
I’ve been trying to create & showcase some of the lovely product that will be retiring at the end of May & today is no different. I’ve used the cute little Stamp Set – “You’re Sublime”. I love this set & always get a bit of a kick when using it.
To colour my sub I’ve used So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron, Pool Party & Peekaboo Peach Inks along with my Blender Pen. The little hearts have been coloured using the Real Red Watercolour Pencils.
As Mint Macaron is a 2015-2017 In Colour, it will be retiring this year. I will really miss this colour as it is one of “go to” colours.

No, not the “Falling Flowers” Bundle (although it won’t be available as a Bundle in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue), but the gorgeous “Irresistibly Floral Special” DSP. Although I haven’t used it much, each time I have, I ask myself “Why not?”
For my card today I actually cased it from one I saw on Pinterest sometime ago & thought it such a gorgeous card showcasing both the DSP & the coordinating Bundle. I have changed it a little, as you tend to do. Thank you so much for your inspiration.
The sentiment I used is from the “Dragonfly Dreams” Stamp Set which is still available from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.
In fact, we created this card in our class “Cards @ Toogoom” last Friday morning. If you are around the area, why not pop in for a fun morning. Everything is supplied for you.

Today’s card is one we are creating in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class this morning. I hope the ladies like it!
I started by caseing the card from the 2017 SAB Catalogue but it sort of went off on its own. I then found a card on Pinterest that I loved so I ended finishing my card by caseing it. Thank you so much for your inspiration.
I’m loving my Blender Pen at the moment as the new smooth & improved Watercolour Pencils make it so very easy to use. I also want the class to play with them as they are very interested in different techniques, so look out class, we will be doing lots of lovely techniques in our future classes.
