Team meeting make and take!

Last Thursday night I was lucky enough to get together with my team, these types of get togethers are super fun. We get together, chat, sometimes about business tips lol and stamp! If you have ever considered being a demonstrator and would like some more information about joining our team shoot me an e-mail, I’d love to chat to you about it!

This is the card I created to share with my team, I am so in love with this stamp set. I wish it was a possibility for it to make it into the main catalogue! {Don’t get excited that has never happened before!}

Have you picked this set as one of your freebies this sale-a-bration? You really won’t be disappointed it if you did! I’ve also used the Petal Burst embossing folder that has been newly added to the sale-a-bration list it’s super cute as well! I’m going to enjoy using it more often, of course I only just purchased this last week without knowing it was going on to the sale-a-bration freebies list! But glad I did so I can make some samples to show you just how cute it is!

If you haven’t got all your sale-a-bration goodies yet don’t forget to pop over to my online shop and place your order……don’t forget to use this months hostess code if your order is under $250!

 

 

 

Hope to hear from you!

A week of fond farewells!

Sadly we are entering our final week of Sale-a-bration, the biggest and best time of year to be a demonstrator, recruit or customer of Stampin’ Up! This year they have out done themselves once again with their selection of goodies up for offer! I am going to be so sad when they go as I have loved using each and every set I managed to get my hands on!!

On Friday evening we did a Farewel Sale-a-bration class and over the next 7 days I am going to share the cards we made! As I have mentioned before I often start designing with a sketch, challenge or case of a card to get going and Thursday evening/Friday afternoon is no exception. The card we made started out as a case of a card I had previously created and came across on pinterest a few days ago!

So here is the original card…..

Feels like a million years ago I created this card! Here’s the one I came up with on Friday….. I may have been a little slow with this card as I was only designing it while my ladies arrived lol! {worth the wait tho apparently}

I just adore everything about this card, from the amazing glimmer paper, detailed doilies stamp set, 2 tone doilies! It was a popular one on Friday night, so much so I ran out of bit s to make it!

What do you reckon would you make it?

Amazing Birthday oooops it’s retired!

On Monday night we had another stamp a stack and just before everyone was due to arrive I decided we need a masculine card in the line up! Having limited supplies, I’m almost out of basic black and smoky slate cardstock I set about creating a card!

This is what I came up with, it’s a pretty simple card but I was happy with it non the less.

This morning when the sun was out briefly I whipped out to photograph some of my recent cards to share with you. That’s when my issue started I was doing up my product below…..entered in Amazing Birthday and it came up as retired, {No surely not} grabbed my catalogue to look it up, sure enough it’s not in there! Can you believe it, we are almost at the end of the current catalogue and I have just worked out this set is no longer current! Ooops! So this will be the final card I create with the great little stamp set, it will now be popped in my stash of retired sets to be sold off at our next launch day!

I always get a bit sad saying goodbye to stamp sets, sometimes I wish I could keep them all lol! What about you? Do you keep all your stamp sets or do you sell them off?

Thanks for stopping by

Monday Night’s stamp a stack!

We had heaps of fun on Monday night at our monthly stamp a stack! There were 6 different designs to choose from, as usual some were more popular then others!

This is one of my favourites as I am currently loving the Make a Medallion stamp set! The photo isn’t my usual brilliance (lol) It’s been raining and overcast since Sunday and it’s making if very difficult for me to photograph my cards…which is why the blog posts are few and far between sorry! This card was inspired by Sarah Berry‘s card I just loved the colour combination, although I didn’t read it very well and used Daffodil delight instead of Crushed Curry but it still came up really pretty in real life! I love this stamp set so much, it’s so fun to play with and pretty easy to line up without the need for a stamp a ma jig too!

Have you ordered your Make a Medallion stamp set yet? It’s free with a $90 order only until the end of this month that’s only 10 days to go!!

We are having a final farewell of Sale-a-bration stamp sets on Friday evening at 7.30pm, 6 cards (2 of 3 designs) for $20.00 there is the option for you to make addition sets of cards if you would like as well! After all it is Friday night and if you’d like to craft a bit later you are welcome to stay on!  For more info or to book follow this link.

Would love to see you Friday night, feel free to bring a crafty friend along too!

Playing along with #GDP078

I think I may currently be a little obsessed with the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set, I simply keep picking it up to create with! I think this may be a recurring theme though, looking back on past posts talking about  favourite stamp sets lol!

Anyway this morning before getting ready for work I popped down to my craftroom to make a card for my blog and it was still on my desk from creating my customer thank you cards, so when I saw the sketch offered by the Global Design Project this week I knew immediately I wanted to use my dragonflies oh and some glitter paper…..I just love that too:)

This is the sketch we were given this weekSo cute hey? Because I wanted to use a piece of my chevron paper from +________ I had to flip the sketch as I’ve used most of it up and these are the only tiny pieces I have left! I think I need to order another pack!!

This is what I came up with, I cut out the sale-a-bration sweet sugarplum glimmer paper with the solid dragonfly and then cut some black cardstock with the detailed thinlit and then layered them  together! How pretty does it look? I embossed the circle with the Hexagon dynamics textured embossing folder, it looks so good IRL!

I wasn’t 100% happy with the word placement but it’s grown on me!! What do you think?

Another Medallion Card!

I really shouldn’t promise things on here! As per usual life got in the way of my plans and I didn’t make it to my craftroom at all! So I am sharing a card I created the other day using the Make a Medallion stamp set……I wouldn’t want to completely let you down :)!

I saw a very similar card created by Kylie Bertucci quiet some time ago using a completely different stamp set and I thought I would give it a try with the Make a Medallion set.

I’ve used the embossing resist technique, first I embossed the image with white embossing powder, then using a sponge dauber around the edges I sponged the pool party ink over the embossed portion. After I had done that I then came along and stamped the little edge pieces in just versamark.

Super simple but I really like the effect it created! What do you think? Would you give it a go?

More Sale-a-bration goodness! Glimmer paper sigh!

Today has been a crazy day, with work and kids and the gym! I’m not sure if you all know but I do crossfit and usually I love it! I am currently taking part in the crossfit open at my box and tonight was a real struggle. It involved a movement I am not very good at, at a weight I couldn’t do so in the 8 minutes I only recorded 7 reps:(…….I feel a little defeated this evening to be honest! But in true crossfit style my box mates cheered me on and encouraged me to get that 7th rep…..for 7 minutes and 30 seconds lol!I knew there was a reason I loved this sport!

Anyway enough about my crappy afternoon and on to much more exciting things I had to share this video about the fabulous Glimmer paper assortment pack that you can earn by placing a qualifying order during sale-a-bration!

It is so divine but super tricky to photograph well!

Tomorrow I plan to make up some cards with it and the Make a Medallion stamp set! Hope I’ll have an assortment of goodies to show you!

Have your placed a qualifying order and chosen this as your gift?

Techniques galore here this week!

I thought I best show you the other card we did at Technique class on Monday night! This one was super easy to create and had 2 techniques on it! Although calling them techniques is possibly a bit of a push one is probably more of a style of card then a technique and the other a bit of a tip or trick that I thought was great to share!!

If you hadn’t noticed I am loving the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits, I can’t actually believe I put of buying them for so long! This card was so tricky to photograph, I think I took about 20 shots and I’m still not happy with this one. But I had to let it go otherwise I would never have gotten it up here to share with you!

How cool do those dragonflies look flying across the page! To adhere them to the card so that I didn’t have unsightly glue all over the back I used a little tombow on a sponge and just sponged it over the backs and check out how nice they look from the other side!

Well take my word for it there is no glue showing…..that’s hard to capture that on a photo lol!

Do you follow me on Facebook? Pop on over and follow me, I’d love to see you there! If you just click on the Facebook icon in my tool bar it will take you directly to my page! I’d love to hit 200 followers!!

Make a Medallion….. I just can’t help myself!

As soon as I saw the Make a Medallion stamp set in the new Sale-a-bration I knew I wanted it and knew I’d love it!!

Have you seen it yet? It is awesome seriously, check out this video here to see what I am raving about!

What do you think? Would you use it? I have teamed it with some of the glitter paper that is also in the new Sale-a-Bration catalogue! It is so sparkly and pretty! If you haven’t seen the new 3 items in the catalogue click here to see it!

Here is the card I came up with it……

I do really like it and it was so super easy to use, I think wood mount would be trick but lining it up with the photopolymer  was a breeze! I used 3 of the stamps to create this medallion and I didn’t even mess it up once…small miracle for me lol! Here’s a closer look of just the medallion

And how about that glimmer paper….sorry I’m pretty chuffed with the new offerings from Sale-a-Bration if you can’t tell lol!

Don’t miss out, place a qualifying order today so you can get your awesome Make a Medallion stamp set or glimmer paper or both hehehe!!

But don’t forget to use this months hostess code unless your order is over $250.00!Thanks for stopping by
