Last Day to shop my big BOGO sale!


 


Hey friends, 

With less than 24 hours to go, I am popping up this reminder of my Big BOGO sale (that's Buy One, Get One free for anyone that hasn't heard that before).  

It's all happening over on my Private VIP group on Facebook.  If you are in Australia, you are welcome to join in.  Basically I am giving some of my retired items up free for an order of the same value in new products.  To see how it works click HERE and then request to join my group.  You need to be in Australia, and be a customer or team member... (or maybe you would like to be!)

Because of the pandemic I haven't been able to offload my vast amount of retired products to my local customers as I normally would.  So instead I am trying Online sale which is a first for me.  I'm really happy with now its run so far, but I promise you there is still LOTS left to look at! 

So head over there, join the group and browse the pages of items.  Its a great deal for you to get those items for free when you spend an equivalent amount on new product.  

Any questions, please CONTACT ME

Video Tutorial: Merriest Moments Easy Z-Fold card







Hello friends! 

Today I created a video for this simple but beautiful little card.  I've been having a lot of fun with the Merriest Moments Bundle.  You'll find it on page 43 of the latest Mini catalogue (July-December 2021) and you might notice that this bundle is quite different. It includes not only the stamps and dies, but also a hybrid embossing folder that co-ordinates.  

What is a hybrid embossing folder you ask?  This is actually the second embossing folder of this type that we have... the other is in the Annual catalogue and it is part of the Art in Bloom bundle (page 157).  This latest bundle features the Merriest Moments stamp set and matching Merriest Frames dies.  What makes this bundle special is the way the dies and the embossing folder work together.  You can actually use it to both cut and emboss at the same time.  Ive included a link below to my online store if you are in Australia and wish to purchase one. 





In this video I show you how they work together... and how to use them to make this very simple Z-Fold card.  I hope you love it. 

Here is the video:



And here is the product with a link to my Online Store:

Video Tutorial: Easy Christmas Penguin tag


 


Today is the VERY LAST DAY of our fabulous Sale-a-Bration promotion, and so I've had a little fun creating a quick and easy tag using the Penguin Playmates DSP.  I have really loved the products in this year's SAB offering, and will be very sad to see them go! 

So I made a quick sped-up video to show how easy it is to make tags with punches, and I hope you enjoy it!

Video Tutorial: Creating cards with the Strong of Heart stamp set for Stampin'Up's Day of Service



Hello friends!

Last night I went live on my Facebook Page as part of Stampin'Up's "Day of Service"!  This is something they do each each year to make a difference in our communities.  This year the focus is on Heart Health. 

In case you didnt know we have a stamp set in our current Mini Catalogue called "Strong of Heart".  For every set sold Stampin'Up will donate $4.25 aud to Heart Health charities.  

So it made sense to create using this set, and to show some cool cards that can be made with it. 

I had a few sound issues at the start, so I have edited those out, and uploaded the video to YouTube. To view it click the video link below. 






I hope you enjoy it! 

Below is the link to the stamp set if you would like to purchase it.  (Just click on the picture)

Oh how I love white ink and all the things it can do! 

Today I have popped up a YouTube tutorial for the card many of you would have seen on my Facebook Page last week.  Its really a very simple process and you only need a few supplies. I suggest having a couple of inspiration pictures to guide you and be prepared to try a few different versions as it will turn out differently every time.
