Stampin' Up! Thailand Incentive Trip (Simone Bartrum)

Oh my goodness, it’s been far too long since I joined in the Case-ing The Catty blog hop. I’m excited to be back!

 

We have just returned from the amazing Stampin’ Up! incentive trip to Thailand. If you’ve been following our adventures over on Facebook you’ll know I was working on a special project for the trip which took up most of my crafting time in the weeks before the trip (I’ll share more about that next week.) It was all fun, but I’m thrilled to get back to CASE-ing the catalogue, along with the inspirational and very talented CTC crew.

Oooh and a big Congrats to the new crew members who have joined in recent weeks. xxx

 


 

Our focus this week is the Christmas section on pages 112 – 125 of the annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue.

Santa's Sleigh by Stampin' Up!. CASE-ing the Catty project for 23rd July 2017

 

Santa’s Sleigh

Straight away I looked to the card on page 119 (see above), featuring the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set and coordinating Santa’s Sleigh thinlit dies.

 

First, an almost exact copy of the original. This is a cute shaker frame card that we’ve made in my recent classes and events.

Santa’s Sleigh in Tranquil Tide & Gold

Then I tried the layout in a different colour-way (Tranquil Tide and gold) and also used different elements of the Santa’s Sleigh framelits.

I’m really loving the new Metallic-Edge Ribbon, which is available in both gold and silver.

I have completely fallen in love with this colour combo!

Santa's Sleigh by Stampin' Up!, in Tranquil Tide

 

Tranquil Tide and Gold = Love! I think I will have to come back to these colours for future Christmas cards, it looks so regal and rich. I might have a go at making this in Elegant Eggplant and gold too. That’s tomorrow’s project!

Next on the hop is the very talented Rebecca Scurr. Check out her fabulous project here, and don’t forget to leave some comment love to let me know you stopped by. xxxx

 Happy stamping,

Simone xxxSaveSave

July Specials – Join for Gifts & Shop for Vouchers

Published by under cards

Exciting news today with the announcement of TWO special offers to help you get creative.

And they are *really* good.

 

 

1. JOIN STAMPIN’ UP! & GET FREE CRAFTING ESSENTIALS PLUS A NEW CHRISTMAS STAMP SET

.

It's Christmas In July with Stampin' Up!

 

It’s always a good deal to join Stampin’ Up!, but it’s even better this month.

You usually get $235 worth of products PLUS catalogues and paperwork PLUS your own business, for only $169. But to sweeten the deal you can join in July and receive gifts of paper crafting essentials PLUS a brand new stamp set!

In fact, these are the EXTRA FREEBIES you get this month, worth over $120:

Join Stampin' Up! during July and receive a free Essentials Starter kit plus a brand new stamp set!

When you buy your $169 starter kit in July, you’ll receive:

  • $235 worth of catalogue items of your choice
  • 8 Annual Catalogues and all the paperwork you need to get started
  • The brand new Carols Of Christmas stamp set, which will feature in the upcoming Christmas catalogue
  • 2 x clear blocks (D size)
  • Grid paper
  • Bone Folder
  • Paper Snips
  • Snail adhesive
  • and the best part – your OWN business!

The products alone are worth over $350. Seriously, you don’t need to be an expert in maths to know that’s an awesome deal. And to be able to start your own business PLUS get all that product for only $169, well…. it’s very generous. As if that wasn’t enough, you’ll be able to see the new Christmas catalogue and order from it at the end of this month, just like all the other 40,000 demonstrators world-wide. That’s a month earlier than customers which is a very nice perk.

 

As a full-time Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for nearly 10 years, I’m excited to share this business with you and will be there to encourage, support and mentor you all the way. Whether you join to make money, or simply to save money, you will not regret becoming part of the Stampin’ Up! community.

Our team consists of business builders and happy shoppers, and everything in between. You will fit right in and will be warmly welcomed.

To learn more about joining, click here.

Are you ready? Click here to get the ball rolling.

You Fill Me With Happiness

 

 

 

2. BONUS DAYS VOUCHERS – Earn in July, Redeem in August

We have a wonderful special for our crafty shoppers too.

For every $90 you spend in July, you’ll earn a $9 voucher that you can spend in August. There are no limits to how many you earn, so you can grab one or grab a stack. It’s up to you!

 

Yep, I said it was big news!

We had Bonus Days this time last year, and it was a massive hit with our customers. We’re so happy to see it come back again.

If you have any questions about these specials, or would like to chat about all things Stampin’ Up!, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Enquiries are welcomed from all over Australia and I will continue to give you the best shopping and crafting experience possible.

Happy stamping,

Simone Bartrum, Stampin' Up! demonstrator Australia, Victoria

CTC 133: Ribbon of Courage

Published by under cards

Welcome to this week’s CASEing the Catty blog hop. Every Sunday night at 7pm AEST, the CTC Crew share great ideas from the latest Stampin’ Up! Catalogues.  We either directly CASE (Copy and Share Everything) a project in the catalogue, or we use an aspect like a layout or colour combo as inspiration for our own creations. This week, we are sharing our projects inspired by the Love & Sympathy section, pages 86-101 of the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue.

Come and join us! Make your own project and share it  in the CASEing the Catty Challenge Facebook Group.  


 

Ribbon of Courage

The inspiration for my card this week came from the very special Ribbon of Courage stamp set and framelit bundle, and in particular the card on the bottom right of page 97.

A few changes were made, of course. I swapped out the ribbon image for the hearts, but that card was certainly a great place to jump-start the creative process.

Ribbon of Courage hearts card. www.simonebartrum.com

 

I ended up making quite a few of these for a team swap recently.

 

Ribbon Of Courage Cards - www.simonebartrum.com

 

The hearts were cut out with the Sweet & Sassy framelits and there’s just a touch of Berry Burst 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon poking out from behind the feature layer.

I really love the thoughtful sentiments in this set…

  • “Live every moment, Laugh every day, Love with all your heart”
  • “Sending love and hugs to you”
  • “With faith all things are possible”
  • and “Courage”.

Now aren’t they just words to live by.

CTC131: Everyday Occasions

Published by under cards

.

Welcome to this week’s CASEing the Catty blog hop.
Every Sunday night at 7pm AEST, the CTC Crew share great ideas from the latest Stampin’ Up! Catalogues.  We either directly CASE (Copy and Share Everything) a project in the catalogue, or we use an aspect like a layout or colour combo as inspiration for our own creations.
This week, we are sharing our projects inspired by the Everyday Occasions section of the brand new annual catalogue, pages 18-67.


Come and join us! Make your own project and share it  in the CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge Facebook Group.  


Welcome to the first CTC Challenge of the NEW catalogue.

I’ve missed playing along lately, but it’s been a rather busy few weeks to say the least. We had the Shepparton CraftAlive expo, launch of the new catalogue, and some extra special excitement  (which can read about on my Facebook page).

The Everyday Occasions section is very big, so it wasn’t easy to narrow it down but I really wanted to share with you my take on the Label Me Pretty tags that you can see on the top of page 27.

Label Me Pretty stamp set and punch bundle - from page 27 of the new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! annual catalogue

What a fabulous bundle to make awesome tags for all different occasions.

I loved the cute size so took inspiration from the layered labels, switched out the colours and made mini 3″x3″ note cards.

CTC 131: Everyday Occasions. Label Me Pretty mini 3x3 cards, and Daisy Delight flowers with tag. From http://simonebartrum.com/cards/ctc131

The tag on the daisy vase is a closer match to the tags on page 27. The tag was one of the free make & tags that Erin Zobec (a fabulous Stampin’ Up! demonstrator from the Shepparton region) and I did at CraftAlive recently, so I had to pop that in the photo too. I’ll talk more about the daisies in a future post.

I’m really REALLY loving the new In Colours which will be around from now and for the next TWO years! They look amazing together but also when paired with many of the core Stampin’ Up! colours.

The latest gorgeous new InColours from Stampin' Up! From June 2017-May 2019. www.simonebartrum.com

 

I love how the 3×3 note cards fit in the Wood Crate framelits. These would make a cute little gift.

CTC 125: Favourite Big Shot Project from the Occasions Catalogue

Published by under cards

Balloon Adventures Shaker Card - CTC125 by Simone BartrumWelcome to this week’s CASEing the Catty blog hop.

Every Sunday night at 7pm AEST, the CTC Crew share great ideas from the latest Stampin’ Up! Catalogues.  We either directly CASE (Copy and Share Everything) a project in the catalogue, or we use an aspect like a layout or colour combo as inspiration for our own creations.
This week, we are sharing our projects inspired by our favourite Big Shot project in the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.

CTC125: CASEing the Catty

Come and join us! Make your own project and share it  in the CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge Facebook Group.  


 

Hi friends,

It’s been too long since I joined in the CASEing The Catty weekly blog hop, so I’m thrilled to be back this week. How can I resist a theme like “Favourite Big Shot Project from the Occasions Catalogue”?

The hard part was narrowing it down to which project to focus on!

In the end, I couldn’t go past that fabulous shaker card in the top right corner of page 4.

Party Animal Suite - pages 4-5 of the 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue

It has been a great source of inspiration over the past few months of the Occasions Catalogue, and I’ve taught it at many classes, clubs and craft shows.

Today, I changed up the colour scheme and ended up with this one….

 

Paper used on this one is the fabulous and bright Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper.

With colours like Emerald Envy, Crushed Curry, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo – it’s hard to resist.

 

Did you know that the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies and Balloon Adventures stamp set, which feature in this project, are HEAVILY discounted at the moment?! And (in Australia at least) are still available! They are currently on the retiring list, which means we KNOW that they will not be in the upcoming new annual catalogue. Very sad :(

So, if this die and stamp bundle is calling your name, make sure you grab it now before they are gone forever.

HOT HINT: Normally we use a different item code when we order sets as a bundle, but at the moment it’s actually cheaper to buy these two items separately! The stamps and dies are individually reduced, but the bundle is not.

View Balloon Adventures stamp set in the online store HERE.
