Alaskan Achievers Blog Hop September 2018 – Holiday Catalogue

Welcome to our Alaska Achievers Blog hop for September

This is my last Alaskan Achievers Blog Hop that I have the privilege of taking part in. I’ve been humbled to participate in this along with many Demonstrators from all around the globe.

Once again, a huge thank you to all of my team and customers who helped me achieve this incredible reward. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without you. #alaskasu2018 #stampinup30


This month we are highlighting Stampin’ Up! new Holiday Catalogue  product.

I’ve had fun playing this weekend and creating samples for my upcoming Holiday Catalogue Launch Fundraiser. I’ll share a few with you today.

I created this cute set of cards using the Festive Farmhouse Suite on page 12 in your new catalogue. The Festive Farmhouse Cardstock Pack co-ordinates beautifully with this suite keeping the colours simple by just using Very Vanilla, Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler with a touch of silver on the accents.

The lovely versatile Festive Farmhouse DSP and Elements are the feature on my cards.  I cased a catalogue sample for inspiration and changed it up to make it my own.

I love stitching on cards but usually find it too much trouble. I had the time and I’m glad I got the sewing machine out as this added a cute touch to the cards too.

I used the gorgeous new Striped Burlap Trim for as an accent through the centre of the card and I enjoyed layering. The little sprigs are from the new Sprig Punch.

I separated the Cherry Cobbler twine into a single strand to add a little extra texture.

I had my first ever play with shimmer paint and I am in love! I put a few drops into some Isocol alcohol solution using my spritzer and just sprayed a fine mist over the finished cards to give it that little bit of sparkle.

If you’d like to learn how to make cards like these and have some creative fun, come to my classes, I would love for you to join us!
