Last days before these products are gone forever.. Happiness Surrounds Summer card

Such a beautiful suite of products right here!  Even though it was called the "Snowflake Showcase", I love that you can create both snowflakey projects AND non-snowflakey projects because the "Snowfall thinlits" really are adaptable to both snowflakes and flowers.

One of the things I have loved about this suite is the versatility of it, but another is the simplicity.  It is simply an easy set to use.  There are endless ideas and projects to be created with it. So if you are looking for an easy "go to" set, then consider these stamps and thinlits.  You'll have everything you need to make both Christmas cards and projects all year round.

We are almost at the end of November and so that also means the end of the gorgeous products in this special suite.  It will be discontinued after the 30th November.  Today I've used it to make a cute happy card in summery colours.  And not a snowflake in sight!  The card features simple stamping but to tizzy it up a bit I've added some of the diecut flowers from the Snowfall thinlits.

As we are in the last 2 days to grab these products I've included a link to them below in the Product List.  If you are in Australia you can simply click on the items you want and you will be redirected to my Online Store for a closer look.  Or you can message me before the end of the day on the 30th November.

I'll be doing a Facebook live tomorrow on my Facebook Business page to show a few more ideas you can use.  So head over there and like the page if you would like to be notified when I go live.

Christmas Gable Boxes

Last week for my last Hunter Valley card marking class I included this little project.  They are cute little Christmas gable boxes.  The gable boxes are found in our annual catalogue and are available in two different colour choices.... silver (as pictured) and shimmery white.  They go together really easily and are also easy to decorate... so you can customise them to suit your gift giving needs!

I used the Frosted Floral designer series paper to wrap around the boxes, and then added a Mint Macaron circle, and finished it off with one of the diecut shapes from the Snowfall thinlits.  Please note that the Snowfall thinlits (and matching Happiness Surrounds stamp set) are only available until the end of November, when they will be discontinued. So if you love them.... grab them now!

I think these boxes turned out really cute... and it's such an easy and effective way to package your gifts this Christmas.  For this class I added some shredded paper inside and some choccies too.

Here's a close up:

For the record.... they loved them! And I hope you like it too!

Video Tutorial: How to make a Sparkly Snowflake card

In my previous blog post I showed this card... and I've had a couple of people ask me for a tutorial. So today I have a video tutorial for you, and I hope you enjoy it.  The video includes the "recipe" for the shimmer paint spritz that I used for the background.  It was a fun card to make!

Here is the video:

Sparkly Spritzed Snowflake card

I know I've been a little bit quiet lately.... mainly because we celebrated in Melbourne last weekend with Stampin'Up at their local Onstage event.  It was a fabulous weekend!  Stampin'Up holds these training and sharing events twice a year (April and November).... they are for demonstrators only, and are the highlight of my calendar!

At last week's event I was recognised for reaching the title of Platinum (Its just a title stating where my business is with SU, and how much I get paid... so its kind of important in that way), plus I was also recognise for making the Greek Isles incentive trip.  This fabulous trip will be held in July 2019 and it cant come fast enough!

(Thats me second from the left hand end.  I love these girls!!)

Congratulations also to my fellow demonstrator and friend Leonie Schroder.... such a huge effort and I am really proud of you!

But these awesome training days are not just about recognition... they are also about sharing ideas, being part of the awesome stamping community and of course getting our hand on lots of brand new products!  Last weekend they also released the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogues for 2019 and can I just say... you are going to love them!!!  Over the next 6 weeks or so until they are available, I'll be showing lots of sneak peeks of gorgeous new things!

(Side note: I posted more regularly on my Facebook Business Page and Instagram accounts... so if you would like to see more of my projects, head over there are like or follow me to see what I'm up to.  I also do Facebook Live video tutorials and prize giveaways over there....  so you dont want to miss it!)

But even with all this going on, I've still been creating almost every day, and today I wanted to show you another project made with the gorgeous Snowflake Showcase suite.  I used my embossing mats and  Snowfall thinlits for the background of this lovely card on Whisper White cardstock...  and then sponged over the snowflake shapes with Pool Party ink.  Then I used my spritzer and added some Rubbing alcohol (Isocol), a few drops of Frost White shimmer paint, and a few drops of Bermuda Bay ink.  The result is the sparkly spritzed background you see here.  (Probably hard to see the sparkliness of this background... its much better in real life!)  Then I added the sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink, and some White Velvet snowflakes over my sponged areas.  In real life it is soft and sparkly and oh so pretty!  I seriously I dont think you can make a bad card with this set! Its simply stunning!

I've included the product link below so you can shop online for these items to have for yourself!  NOTE:  THESE SNOWFLAKE SHOWCASE ITEMS ARE ONLY AVAILALBE UNTIL NOVEMBER 30TH, AND THEN THEY ARE GONE!!!! So if you want them, please get them while there are still available.
