Inspiring Sunset Card (Video Tutorial available)

Yesterday I made a little Facebook Live video to show how to make a couple of cards using new products that I absolutely love!  Last month our brand new Annual Catalogue came out, and of course it is awesome!  But there are so many gorgeous items that are "flying under the radar"... you really need to look in there to see them.  Thats actually one of the things i love about Stampin' Up! cataglogues.... you can see things for the first time in there, even if you've looked through the catalogue once, twice or 50 times!

So in my little video yesterday I made two cards... this card above using the new Noble Peacock speciality paper (GORGEOUS!) and our new Daisy Lane bundle, and a second card focusing on the Sweet Silhouettes dies.  The second one is the card you see at the top of this page with the Sunset background.

In fact I loved those Noble Peacock/Daisy Lane cards so much I made a bunch of them to send out to my Online ordering customers last month..

So if you would like to see how I made these cards you can watch me do it on the replay of my Facebook Live video yesterday. You can either hop over to my Facebook Page and see it there, or simply click the video link below. Annoyingly the YouTube video cut off JUST before I said goodbye... but I was trying to say that right now the Demonstrator kit is available for only $169 and you get $280 worth of products of your choice in that box!  Contact me if you would like more information, or click the 'Join my Team" tab above!

A big week at the Sydney Craft and Quilt Fair!

Wow!  Im just a little tired after a massive week at the Sydney Craft and Quilt Fair last week!  For 5 full days we talked, demonstrated and created our awesome Stampin'Up! products for the wonderful customers that came along to the show to see us!  I really do love these events... they are one of the highlights of my year, but they are also a LOT of work!  So yes, we are tired, but also very happy with the results!  Its really rewarding to show customers our beautiful products... and to see them react with delight.

I've included a few photos for you....

Here we are setting up the stand the day before the show...

All ready.....

Getting ready to start on Day 1:

Doing my Magnolia Lane demonstration on the stand...... showing how to stamp and then colour the Magnolias in different ways.  Everyone loved them of course!!

By the end of the week we were starting to get a little bit silly! 

But we had FUN.... and met so many wonderful people! 

Thanks to Vanessa, Karen, Lynn, Courtenay and Denielle for all your hard work, and for making this a great week.  Its great to be part of a fabulous team!  And if you came along to visit us at the stand... thank you!  We loved meeting you!

Video Tutorial: Tips on making Washi Tape Flowers (plus these cute Vintage tags!)

This week I finally played with the new Pressed Petals Speciality Washi tape.... and found out for myself just why it is called "Speciality".  I love it!  And these flowers are so fun to make that I think they might be a little bit addictive.  Plus I love how realistic they look when they are finished!  I used them on these little Vintage tags.... and so of course I thought I should make a video tutorial to show you how, so that you can make your own!

These tags come together really quickly and without a huge amount of supplies.  You'll have to watch the video and let me know what you think!  Enjoy!

Last month was my first month as a designer on the Master Stamper team!  Each week there are video tutorials on there that showcase fabulous products and different techniques.  Once a month I am doing a tutorial for the project, and that happens to be this week!

Which is extra exciting because this is also NEW CATALOGUE WEEK!  Woohoo!  So I picked one of my new favourite suites of products and teamed it up with a fabulous technique to produce a super fun tutorial for members of the Master Stamper program.  (You can see a sneak peek above)

To subscribe to Master Stamper costs just $15 (usd) per month.  There are no commitments, so you can cancel at any time if you no longer wish to be part of the group.   But I would definitely recommend giving it a try.... you might just stick around for a while!   My new video will be up on the Master Stamper site by the end of this week, so you really want to check that out!

Introducing the Bird Ballad Laser cut cards in this gorgeous tin!

How gorgeous is this beautiful Bird Ballad Laser cut cards in a tin??  These stunning cards and envelopes will be available in our new catalogue due out on June 4th.... so today Im doing a little "sneak peek" for you.  The cards come plain, just waiting to be decorated and embellished... and here you can see I have added the birds from the Bird Ballad stamp set.  Such a pretty set!!!  Im also doing this card at my launch this afternoon with a very lucky group of customers!

If you haven't yet feasted your eyes on the new 2019 Annual catalogue from Stampin'Up! then you need to get your hands on one of those!!!  The catalogue itself doesn't go live until the 4th June, so we still have a couple of days to grab the last retiring items from the current catalogue.  But if there is anything you need, you'll need to be quick!

Here is a pic of the new catalogue for you...

Of course I am as always holding a catalogue launch to kick-off this beautiful book... and its TODAY!  And I have ONE SPOT LEFT!!!  If you find yourself with a couple of hours free this afternoon Saturday 1st June from 2pm, then you are welcome to join us... but you'll need to click HERE to let me know you are coming along.  The cost is $20 and you'll make 3 great projects.  I have gifts for everyone, AND those coming today will also get first "dibs" on my retiring products.

If you are unable to make it today, but would like a glossy catalogue of your very own, please contact me and request one. I can send them anywhere in Australia.

A reminder too that there are some discounts in amongst the retiring products, so be sure to check those out by visiting the ONLINE STORE.

I hope to see you soon.... check back for more ideas and inspiration!!
