13 May 2013 – Tri-fold Shutter card – So Gorgeous!!

The yearly Stampin’ Up! convention is almost here and I’m so excited that it is in my home town of Brisbane!! I can’t wait to welcome all my team members to Brissie!! Only 9 more sleeps to go!!!

It’s been very hectic here getting all my swaps ready but I wanted to share this gorgeous card that we did at Stamp Club recently. I came across a tutorial by fellow SU! demonstrator, Tanya Bell, who does the most amazing work and creates fabulous tutorials. You can purchase Tanya’s tutorial here.

As it was so lovely, I didn’t really change very much. It was a fairly challenging card to do as a class but the girls took up the challenge and they all finished their card (although I’m not sure if they’re going to make another one!!).

2 September 2012 – It’s here!!

It’s so exciting, the new Stampin’ Up! 2012-2013 Catalogue is here!!!

There are so many gorgeous new stamps, designer series papers to die for, ribbon to drool over and Big Shot dies!!  My heart is happy!!  You will be excited to know that we have virtually the same catalogue as the US market, which is great news!

We are also launching the very first Seasonal Catalogue at the same time.  The mini catalogues have been replaced by Seasonal Catalogues.  They are available longer, (this one is here until 31 January), and are bigger.  I have to say that the Christmas range is fabulous!!  I’ve got some of it and it is great!!

If you would like to receive a copy of both, please contact me with your postal details, and I’ll send one out to you.  Or you can host a party and receive all the amazing hostess beneifts!!

Today’s card is using one of the new big shot framelits, Apothecary Accents.  I love framelits!!  They are so easy to use and look fab.  I have cased this card.

14 August 2012 – July Stamp Club

Hi there,

It’s starting to get a bit warmer during the day now although it is a bit chilly at night time.  Here’s the cards that we made at July Stamp Club (yes I know I’m late posting!!)  I was inspired by swaps that I had received at Convention for all these cards.  The first one is from fellow Demonstrator, Cathy Clark.

Here is her card using the Spirelli technique.

And here is my card.  Yes, it’s time for a Christmas Card!!

Ink:  Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive markers

Accessories:  Big Shot, Perfect Pennants die, Boho Blossoms punch, White baker’s twine, Cherry Cobbler baker’s twine, Rhinestone.

The next card was inspired by Bronwen Cornish. I did virtually the same card that she did.  We made ours in Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise.  You can’t really tell from the photo but we put a multipurpose adhesive sheet over the centre panel and put dazzling diamonds over the top.  We were all a bit sparkly going home!!

9 November 2011 – Brisbane Regional event

Last Saturday I attended the Stampin’ Up! Brisbane Regional training event with some of the girls in my team and a few of my customers.  My upline, Tracy was also able to attend.  It was a great day of catching up, swapping, sharing, learning and laughs!!!  This is why I love Stampin’ Up!  They are such a generous business!!  They had door prizes during the day (I didn’t win one but one of my team members did, Yay Carolyn!!) and gave everyone who attended a container of Champagne glitter glass. Gorgeous stuff!!!

Some of the girls in my team, Carolyn G and Mary R.

 

Here are my guests, Me, Jan S, Lynn W and Sandra (aka Super Mum!!)

One of the best parts of any Stampin’ Up! event, is the swapping!!!  Generally, you make a card front, include a project recipe and make lots of them.  I don’t enjoy making 50 of the same thing, so I usually do a couple of different cards.  This year, I did two card fronts and a bookmark.

I cased this one from another SU demonstrator, Elizabeth Dyson.

Stamp Set:  Elizabeth, It’s Your Day

Ink:  Early Espresso, Rose Red

Paper:  Early Espresso, Rose Red, Regal Rose, Whisper White

Accessories:  Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Whisper White organza ribbon, pastels, blender pens.

This one was cased from Heather Klump.  I really love this paper and the colours!!

Stamp set:  Four Frames, On Your Birthday

Ink:  Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder

Paper:  Berry Blossoms DSP, Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral

Accessories:  Corner Rounder punch, Decorative label punch, oval punch, scallop oval punch, doily triple layer punch, finial press embossing folder

 

Now when I saw this on Splitcoaststampers, I just knew that I had to make it as a swap.  It’s by Snowteach.  I have to admit that I am addicted to Angry Birds!!!  These were very popular!!

Paper:  Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White, More Mustard

Accessories:  Two Tags Die, Scallop circle punch, owl punch, bird punch, 1 3/8″ circle punch, 1 1/4″ circle punch, slot punch
