Father's Day card class

Did the man in your life have a special Father's Day today? We have been gearing up for his special day in our last few classes.

We split the Designer Series Paper on a diagonal and added a coordinating strip between. The Fathers Day stamp came from the Geared Up Garage stamp set, we used Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Smokey Slate card.

These two are the same but by just changing the Designer Series paper it gives a totally different look.  The two pieces of Burlap Ribbon was frayed behind the Best Guy Ever stamp from the retired Suite Sentiments stamp set.

I'm rather a fan of this Designer Series Paper. The night of Navy strip was embossed with the corrugated embossing folder, we used the Taylored Tag punch for the sentiment.

There are so many people in love with the new Cuckoo for You Bundle and I know you’ll love it too! There’s so much to love about it, but did you know you can make it interactive?

Watch the video below to see how you can create interactive elements to your cuckoo clocks (or to any project!). Brian from the Head Office of Stampin' Up! shows us how to create this project.

Stampin’ Up! have so many intricately beautiful dies, and Stampin' Up! love incorporating them as much as possible! But what if you’re using a die and you can’t detach all the little pieces that make it so intricate? That’s why the Take Your Pick Die Brush Tip is a must-have! It easily removes small cut pieces from dies, and it fits into your Take Your Pick tool, so all you have to do is put the die-cut image on the foam pad, and run the brush over it to remove any excess paper from the die! Easy and done. Watch this video to see how it makes crafting so much simpler. If you want the tool either contact me or buy online, it is so handy.


Want a creative way to keep your memories? With the Pressed Petals Journal, the options are endless! With a debossed cover just waiting for your creative touches, this little journal is perfect for capturing life’s little pleasures. You can even add pictures, decorate the inside, and with sheets that are easily removable, they could be simple and lovely gifts for the special people in your life.

And if you get the Pressed Petals Suite, you can enjoy the journal as a part of the suite. I think this could be perfect for any occasion! Check out this video and see for yourself.


A picture can have a thousand meanings, right? So what about a picture of a silhouette? Just add in some inspiration and adventure, and you can make a beautifully personalised card that could be unique for everyone in your life!

The See a Silhouette Suite is full of inspiration and adventure, with quotes and sentiments that highlight what’s really important in life. You can use the dies and the shimmer Stampin’ Emboss Powder that comes with the suite, or you can think outside of the card and make a memorable tribute to someone important to you, like the Forever frame we have in the samples above.
You will love the unique style of the See a Silhouette suite.

So, have these samples inspired you?

Have you ever looked at a tapestry? I mean, really looked at one? Usually they’re filled with textures and an assortment of colours, with each thread woven in and telling a story about how it too, contributed to the masterpiece of the tapestry.

That’s the story of the Woven Threads Suite, with each stamp carefully manufactured so you can reach out to everyone around you with words of comfort and encouragement. With the Heirloom Frames Dies and 3D Embossing Folder, you can create elegant embossed frames to perfectly encapsulate your sentiments, just as Stampin' Up! did in the Heartfelt Sympathy samples above.

And don’t forget about the Woven Threads Trim to create the perfect finish to each of the projects, just like in the above Thinking of You card.

Last chance for Trimmer blades

Do you need any Trimmer blades? 

Stampin' Up! have retired our trimmer and so the blades will no longer be available. If you have purchased the trimmer and in need of extra blades, now is the time to order them. I am putting in an order first thing in the morning (8am), as the last shipment sold out early.

If you want to order online the code number for the blades is #126995, there is a limit of 3 packs per customer. Use the host code below and receive an extra gift as a Thank You.

Please let me know as soon as you can if you wish me to put this last order of blades in for you.


 Stampin' Up! have a great idea using the new Dinoroar Suite from our 2019–2020 annual catalogue.
Quite a few of us probably have young children or grandchildren in their
lives, so wouldn't Dino Days be the perfect stamp set for a first stamping experience with children
or for a beginner stamper.

While the Dino Days Stamp Set coordinates with the Dino Dies and is part of the Dinoroar Suite, you could easily make projects that use the stamp set without the dies

(see the pizza box project above) and one or two that require minimal use of the dies (see the banner above and card below). I recon cards made from this set will be dino-mite!

If you are new to crafting, stamping can seem a little overwhelming—too many products with not enough help can keep you from deciding what you really need. So Stampin' Up! have created a brochure with products and kits designed especially for the beginner. Now, you can have an easier time deciding where to start!

The brochure aims to accomplish four things:

  • Introduce you to the company, products and culture.
  • Offer a simple ordering experience.
  • Provide products that will give you, new stampers a successful stamping experience.
  • And finally, after your successful stamping experience, we hope the brochure and my support will encourage you to continue creating.

If you would like a Beginner Brochure of your own, please email me and I will post one out to you.
