What is my favourite Stampin' Up! tool?

I was asked the other day, what my favourite Stampin' Up! tool was. It wasn't difficult for me as I love the Envelope Punch Board. It was love at first sight especially when I found it could make boxes as well as a few other things.

However with the new Occasions Catalogue I now have another favourite. It is the Bow Builder  Punch. It makes a lovely shaped bow which can be attached to a card, scrapbook page or embellish a box.

You will see lots of samples in the next few weeks as I play. So stay tuned.

This paper is so much more than meets the eye! The glossy designs look great alone or they will "resist" ink, making them really fun for techniques. Try it with spritzers, brayers, sponges and more.
You'll find that this paper can be used with any style, from bold and bright to elegant and subtle. Try a technique class with your friends where everyone can play with this paper and fall in love with it like I have!

With unlimited crafty possibilities, this paper is simply a must-have for everyone's paper stash.

Product of the Week - Lotus Blossom

I am  thrilled with Sale-A-Bration this year, and I hope you are too! With so many exclusive items for you  to earn for free, I thought it would be fun to give each one of them a turn in the spotlight.

Throughout Sale-A-Bration, I will feature a Product of the Week, this week’s product is the Lotus Blossom Stamp Set.

This gorgeous stamp set makes anyone feel like an artist in three quick steps. It creates a beautiful flower that looks painted, but it is amazingly easy. The individual stamps have a tab at the top to help you align them, and the tabs are numbered so you will know which part of the flower to stamp first, second, and third. Try playing around using one ink pad with the stamping off technique, or multiple different ink pads to create many different looks.

Take a look at the video that Stampin' Up! have made to show how to create this beautiful flower. Check back next week for another Product of the Week.

I would like to thank all the ladies that came along to my launch. It was a great day, I had stations set up around the room.

Nibbles and drinks kept us sustained during the day. The new catalogues were perused with a lot of oohs and aahs.

The Thinlits were a great success and now we know the secret of getting the fine pieces out of the Thinlits. Just love how all the Stampin Up demonstrators share tips.

I had purposely put up one of the banners with the "y" facing the wrong way. It wasn't till the end of the day and one of the ladies mentioned it. "Yipee" said I, my treat basket got given to her to choose a gift. I had purposely done that as I knew I couldn't work on the Lucky Seat option as everyone was moving around. Happy dance when it was noticed.

Catalogue Corrections

With all catalogues that are printed there is always a few errors that slip past the proof reading department. As we are getting ready for the Occasionals Catalogue Launch on Sunday 18th in conjunction with Sale-a-bration, I thought it an appropriate time to list the corrections.

Here's a list of catalogue corrections that apply to Australia.

2015 Occasions Catalogue
Page Description
27 The photo and description for the Artisan Embellishment Kit are incorrect. The kit comes with 2 white doilies rather than 4.
49 The prices listed for the 6" x 8" (15.2 x 20.3 cm) Project Life Envelope Pages are incorrect. The correct price is $7.50.

2015 Sale-A-Bration Brochure
Page Description
23 Below the chart listing hostess credits, in the text marked with an asterisk, the amount of hostess credits is incorrectly referred to as $50. The correct amount is as listed in the table: $40

Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge

Happy New Year to all! It is time for a Mojo Monday Sketch and I am going to try my hand. This is part of my New Years Resolution, to "Get out there" and that means participating, so here goes.

This is the Sketch.

This is what I came up with. ..
I used 3 strips of  Wahsi Tape across the card ,  embossed the banner strips and then added the 2 circles which I had punched the centre out using the Pansy Punch to expose the Washi Tape. The colours I used were Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Island Indigo

 So now that you have seen mine, head on over to Mojo Monday Card Sketch Challenge and take a look at all the clever ideas and get inspired.

CCMC336 - Colour Challenge

Hello everyone and Happy New Year! I have decided to hop out of my comfort zone and take part in a Challenge.

Create with Connie and Mary is back with some fabulous challenges for the New Year!  Today they are starting the new year off with this beautiful colour challenge! Using Real Red, Calypso Coral and Basic Black.

My creation has used 3 different embossing folders on the card strips and then I lay these behind the circles, punched out a butterfly and attached the Real red bow.

I hope you find some time to create a card for this challenge!  Head on over to Create with Connie and Mary and give it a try!  I'd love to see what you do!
