Save the Date: Melbourne Planner Market

Published by under cards | Jan 02 2017

Happy new year friends!

What a whirlwind few weeks it has been. I hope you had an awesome Christmas and rang in the new year in a fine way.

I say 2017 is going to be absolutely amazing!

Of course the best thing about a brand new year is setting up my planners for the new year.

 

Are you a planner girl/guy?

If you haven’t been indoctrinated into the world of planners then the rest of this post may not make much sense. The planner community is huge (check out some of the Facebook groups to see what I mean).

To get 2017 off to a great start I’ve been getting my planner setup ready.

I’ve got my new inserts (trying out the awesome day to a page inserts from Life is Crafted this year), and put my Robin’s Egg Carpe Diem planner aside while I (very carefully) started using my rose gold Kikki-K planner.

Yes, it’s the one with the flakey gold :(

But after looking at it fondly for a few months I just had to take it out of the box and use it. I mean, what’s the point otherwise?

 

So my new set up is ready to go. For now.  If there’s any interest I’d be happy to share how I set up my planners to help me be more productive (hint – leave a comment if you are!).

Anyway, what I want to share TODAY is some awesome news.

Victoria is getting it’s very own planner market!

The Melbourne Planner Market is coming to Kensington for one day only (hopefully more if it’s a big success) so get your … ahem… planners out and lock in this date: February 12th 2017. No need to use the Frixion markers on this one, go for that permanent Very Special Pen to write this baby down.

 

Tricia (from the Speckled Sparrow) and I will be sharing how we use the awsome Stampin’ Up! products in our planners. Stampin’ Up! is a paper crafting company of course, with plenty to keep us card makers and scrapbookers happy. But did you know just how versatile our products are? Oh my goodness. You are going to be blown away!

So come along and check out what we have to share. There are around 30 stallholders to the event and even better – it’s FREE ENTRY! Yay for that.

Are you coming?

Leave me a comment below, or even better make sure you like & follow my Facebook page. I’ll be sharing some of my favourite planner tips in the coming weeks and you won’t want to miss it.

 

Happy stamping,

Stampin' Up! Australia - Stitched with Cheer

 

 

Wondering what’s retiring from the Holiday Catalogue?

Click HERE to download the PDF document

Click HERE to download the sortable Excel spreadsheet

 

A couple of quick notes: 

  1. When you look in the online store you’ll notice the Year End Closeout link has 4 categories: Stamps, Bundles, Paper and ‘Everything Else’. Make sure you select ‘view all’ on the Everything Else page, otherwise you’ll only see the first of 5 pages of products.
  2. Sale-a-bration is around the corner, and so is the release of the new Occasions Catalogue. It all kicks off on January 3.  I’m now taking bookings for cardmaking workshops into February and I’d love to do one for you! If you are in Victoria just get in touch and we’ll see what we can work out. Everything supplied and you’ll learn tips and techniques while we stamp together.

 

That’s it for me today, but don’t hesitate to jump over to my Facebook page to keep up with all the daily happenings.

Happy stamping,

If you do a lot of die cutting with the Big Shot using stamped images, then you will find this a fantastic time saver. The magnetic platform holds Framelits and Thinlits dies in place over stamped images when you cut them. You use this in place of the Multipurpose Platform, but in all other respects the sandwich is the same. Fabulous invention.

Here’s To Cheers

Published by under cards | Nov 20 2016

CASE-ing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop

What a week it has been in the world of Stampin’ Up!.

We are in the thick of Christmas cardmaking classes and workshops, a 25% off stamp sale and then BAM… we get news of the exciting Online Extravaganza sale that begins at midnight tonight. Well, as exciting as all that is, I couldn’t resist taking time out to join in this week’s CASEing The Catty blog hop.

 

Fancy Frost

The theme this week is the delicate and delightful Fancy Frost section of the Holiday catalogue, on pages 36-45.

Fancy Frost is described on page 36 as “Delicate medallions paired with elegant dry-embossed designs”.

Oh my. How gorgeous is this?

Fancy Frost - Delicate medallions paired with elegant dry-embossed designs

In particular, I was drawn to those adorable cupcakes with the fringed silver ribbon from the Glitter Ribbon Combo Pack.

Fringed glitter ribbon cupcake toppers

Is that not the cutest cupcake topper ever?

Just wrap a length of ribbon around a toothpick (make sure it’s secured firmly – I’d even get the hot glue gun out for this one), and snip away the sides of the ribbon. The full length of ribbon will then naturally fray, leaving you with this delightful array of glittery and sparkly thread.

I took part of my inspiration for today’s project from the cupcake topper above, and the rest from the bottle tag as shown here:

holiday16_p38d-32

It features the Here’s to Cheers stamp set and Cheerful Tags framelits dies.

And this is what I came up with…

 

Here’s to Cheers

[Click to enlarge]

CTC105: Here's to Cheers

 

The bottle tag and bottle wrap is all decked out in Emerald Envy and Silver. Just a little festive and a little celebratory.

Summer is just around the corner (we’re in Australia remember) and it’s time to start thinking about Christmas parties and end-of-year barbies (BBQ’s) with friends. We usually bring a bottle for the host, and this is such a fun way to dress up a bottle.

It doesn’t have to be wine or champagne. There are all kinds of bottles (oils, vinegars, cordials, mixers, etc) that can be spruced up with the bottle hanger from the awesome Cheerful Tags Framelits dies.

Hot tip: This is one of the items that will be heavily discounted tomorrow when the Online Extravaganza begins!

 

Here's to Cheers Bottle Wrap and Tag - www.simonebartrum.com

I love the frayed ribbon. It reminds me of tinsel…

 

Here's to Cheers Bottle Tag - www.simonebartrum.com

And the mini Jingle Bell around the neck of the bottle…

 

Here's to a Sparkling Season - bottle tag. www.simonebartrum.com

 

So there you have it from me this week. A little bit of fun, dressing up a bottle.

There’s more inspiration ahead as we continue on the CASEing The Catty blog hop this week. Carry on and you’ll arrive at the lovely Judy May’s blog. Her Sweet Sugarplum creations are adorable!

If you get lost along the way, just click here and you’ll be back at the CTC Blog.
