Volunteering at RMH – June 2018

I had my monthly visit to Ronald McDonald House (RMH) again today and it was my pleasure to provide a fun distraction to a few lovely children. They all really enjoyed their first card making experience! 

Thank you for allowing me to share your photos. 

I was also surprised by receiving my new volunteers uniform and a lovely certificate.

Another day well spent sharing what I love doing and making a small difference. 😍

Happy stamping,

June 2018 Class – Climbing Orchid

A big THANKYOU to all who came to my classes last week.

We made four cards using the Climbing Orchid stamp set and  Orchid Builder matching Framelits. This beautiful set has carried over from the last catalogue. I bought it a long time ago but only got the chance to play with it recently.

The first card I cased from “Short Cake Scraps”. We used the double layered stamp to create this lovely card. The card base was made using Fresh Fig card stock and card front was on Very Vanilla. The branches were stamped using the new Stamparatus positioning tool.

Products used to make this project:

 

The second card was inspired by a card in the new  2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! catalogue (pg. 24). I used blushing bride for the card front and stamped the orchid in Melon Mambo ink. The Ruffled 3D dynamic embossing folder created a beautiful background.

Products used to make this project:

 

The third card is my design. I think the Old Olive matches so well with the new in-colour Grapefruit Grove. Everyone had their own choice of greetings. ‘Thinking of you’ covers a lot of occasions.

Products used to make this project:

 

The fourth card was inspired by a card on pg 21 of the 2017-2018 catalogue. We distressed the edges of the card front for a little extra texture. The branches were stamped using the new Stamparatus positioning tool.

Products used to make this project:

 

Everyone loved the cards they created and are looking forward to the next class. If you would like to join us, please see the class schedule. There won’t be a July class as I will be away but we’ll be back on deck in August.

The little floral embellishments are stamps in this set which I fussy cut and added rhinestones coloured with Stampin’ Blends.

Petal Perfection

A little birdie told me that this gorgeous bundle is carrying over into the new annual catalogue! While the stamp set and coordinating dies are continuing, the paper, unfortunately, is not.

 

So before it’s too late, Stampin’ Up! wanted to feature this bundle with its divine paper. This bundle can work for any occasion, but it’s the perfect time of year to use it to create beautiful sentiments for the women in your life for Mother’s Day.

Alaskan Achievers Blog Hop April 2018 – Stampin’ Up!® Onstage events

Welcome to our Alaska Achievers Blog hop for April.

This is my second Blog Hop which I have the privilege of taking part in. Demonstrators from all around the globe have earned the incredible Stampin’ Up!® incentive cruise to Alaska this year including myself! It’s now less than 2.5 months until my husband Wade and I leave for this incredible experience.

You will be inspired by all these amazing, creative people. This month we are sharing some Ideas from Stampin’ Up!® Onstage events that we attended. I went to Luna Park in Sydney.

Here is a sneak peek of things to come from the new catalogue that is launched on 1 June. If you’d like a copy of the catalogue, please email me.

I have made two cards using bonus products that we received in our spoils at OnStage. Both are made using beautiful new note cards and envelopes as well as the gorgeous new Delightfully Detailed laser cut DSP which is very vanilla on one side and whisper white on the other.

On my first card I used the very vanilla side. This DSP is SO beautiful that I let it shine. I just used minimal greetings and embellishments to finish the card off. The new Rich Razzleberry velvet ribbon is stunning. I coloured the rhinestones with matching Stampin’ Blends.

To finish the card off, I added an insert and stamped it with the matching Oh So Eclectic stamp set and I also stamped the envelope to complete the set.


With the second card, I used the reverse whisper white side of the laser cut DSP.

Once again, I kept it simple with another new cute new polka dot ribbon. For the leaves in silver and Rich Razzleberry, I used the leaf punch. I embossed the greeting in silver and added a stamped/embossed embellishment tying the leaf theme together.

Once again, to finish off the card, I stamped the insert and envelope to match.


This last card isn’t my design, it was one of my favourite make and takes at OnStage. I just added an additional Rich Razzleberry layer as the base to create a little extra contrast. How pretty is the DSP on this one?!

I can’t share a carousel today, you’ll need to stay tuned for the NEW catalogue coming 1 June!

OnStage is so much fun! I had an amazing time with my team as well as lots of other demonstrators. We have the privilege of learning new things, have an amazing time crafting and get our hands on the new coming catalogue.

If you want to join in on the fun, please join my team.

April 2018 Class – Lovely Wishes

For this week’s class I featured the Lovely Wishes stamp set , which I was given to do a  live presentation at OnStage last November.

We had a fun class  learning 2 step stamping. This is a very forgiving set as the second step images don’t have to line up precisely. Lovely Wishes is a great set as it has sentiments and images to use to make a complete project. We used every single stamp in the set!

We made a greeting card along with a cute mini pizza box which we filled with four matching mini cards and envelopes. This can be uses as a great gift to give someone special.

Brand New Logo and Loyalty Rewards

It’s time for a few changes. You may have noticed a few little changes on my website lately. This is to freshen it up and to make it more user friendly.

A big thanks to my wonderful hubby Wade, who takes care of all of the ‘techie’ stuff and manages my website. Hasn’t he done a wonderful job!?

I am so excited to introduce my new aMac brand logo!

I’ve also had some new business cards made which are very different to my old ones.  I’ve kept the style very simple. Do you like them?

And last but not least… I have introduced a Frequent Stampers Loyalty Card!

This is a ‘thank you’ from me to reward my loyal customers who come to my classes on a regular basis. I really appreciate your continued support.

How does it work?

  • You will receive this loyalty card form me and I will initial it for each class that you attend.
  • This will also be valid for class kits purchased, if you’re not able to attend a class.
  • Attend 10 classes and you’ll receive a $10 discount off your 11th class, it’s that simple!

Since I was a bit slow off the mark and didn’t have it ready for the beginning of the year, I will backdate it for each attendee.

I hope you like the changes and thanks for your loyalty and support.

Happy Stamping
