Sale-a-bration and the New Occasions Catalogue have Launched

Hi all.

Just a quick update to let you all know that Sale-a-bration and the New Occasions Catalogue have gone live today!  Woo Hoo.
A great way to earn free products as every $90 you spend on products (not including postage and handling) you earn a free item from the sale-a-bration catalogue! What’s not to Love!

As well as that, Stampin’ Up! have released a new product….The gorgeous Texture Boutique Embossing Machine for just $49.95.  You could purchase this, and 3 embossing folders and earn a Sale-a-bration Freebie!  There is more information about this under the Promotions Tab ๐Ÿ™‚

Another Card in a box

Happy Australia Day everyone!

Just thought I would pop past and show you my effort for my latest card in a box project. I adore the dinoroar stamp set, but as it’s retired I am having to borrow this one ๐Ÿ™
Hope you like it!

Easter with A Good Egg

No Way! You are seriously not doing EASTER already!  Well…yes I am…I did….BUT it’s only JANUARY i hear you scream…..I know, I know, but i was having sooooo much fun…and I saw Hot Cross Buns in the shops! That counts, right???? Lol.
In seriousness though, I have a market to prepare for and I saw these adorable baskets on Pinterest…but no tutorial ๐Ÿ™  Well that set the challenge for me…I had to have one, and I had to nut out how to do it.  So I sat and played, and Viola….an Easter Basket was born ๐Ÿ™‚
Aren’t they gorgeous?  And the new Watercolour DSP from the new mini catalogue being released on the 28th of this month, had just thre right flair for the project!  Very ‘Eastery’.  It reminded me of drawing and decorating eater eggs when I was a kid.

And I absolutely adore this stamp set….I know it’s retired, but sometimes an oldie is a goodie!  This card I totally CASEd from a google image, but it was just sooooo cute…in a grown up way, with grown up colours I had to reproduce it.  I believe it was from Inking Idaho in the USA.  She always does a fabulous job!

And last but not least, were these 4″ x 4″ cards.  But then I didn’t have an envelope the correct size…so out come my Envelope Punch Board and I whipped up a matching envelope, complete with Easter Egg stamp in matching ink. The colours used here are Calypso Coral, Island Indigo (two of my most favorite colours ever) and Wisteria Wonder.๏ปฟ
So what do you think? Was I a little enthusiastic in beginning Easter this early? Lol.
If you are interested in learning how to make some of this stuff, or would love to give it a go…send me an email using the little green envelope at the top left hand corner of the blog home page, and while you’re there you can sign up to follow every post I make and for my newsletter outlining classes and promotions and tips and tricks…what are you waiting for?????
Get Hopping!๏ปฟ

Zoo Babies Fun

I had a bit of fun creating some cards using the Zoo Babies stamp set last night. I totally cased the card from Pinterest, but when you are preparing for a market, why reinvent the wheel! Lol

Then I thought about how the animals match my Two by Two stamp and thought I would give a card in a box a try, and the new DSP from the occasions catalogue looked exactly like water for the boat. PERFECT!

Keep Crafting! It’s good for the soul!

New Occasions Catalogue Sneak Peek!

I am trying as hard as I can to get some quality time in my craft room, but alas, it just doesn’t seem to be happening ๐Ÿ™    

However I did find time to create this gorgeous card using some new papers from Saleabration and a stamp set from the New Occasions Catalogue that begins at the end of this month.
I love the easy to do water colour effect and the tags were made using my amazing envelope punch board!                                            

Hope you like it!

Card in a Box

Have you ever wanted a card that really POPS…then this card is for you. It is sooo much fun to make and only limited to the scenes in your imagination. And it still folds down flat and posts in a regular sized envelope. How great is that!

I made the flower one for my first one using Everything Eleanor and Stippled Blossoms.  The other is going to be for my Grandad’s ninety birthday this month! I had to use my cricut machine to cut the stars, but the paper are from the DSP in the new Occasions Catalogue released at the end of this month!  I found it great for this male version of the card, but it also has more feminine patterns and florals too.

I found the tutorial at Stamping T. She has a great tutorial video on how to create these card bases which you can find here.

So get to making one today and wow your friends.

Butterflies in Flight Scrapbook

I have been super busy in the craft room. Here is one of my creations.  I love the butterfly embosslit and the Papillion Potpourri stamp set. This layout also incorporates this years ‘In Colours’ with a dash of Island Indigo thrown in.

That cute little envelope was made using the amazing ‘Envelope Punch Board’. All it needs now is a couple of photos and a sentiment on the second page to finish it off ๐Ÿ™‚
