Today I’m stopping by with the Layered Labels tags I promised a little while back.
These definitely make me feel inspired to create!
We’ll have lots of fun and excitement to share soon, with news from the Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip to Broome. Stay tuned! But for now, here’s a little sneak peek of something special that arrived a few weeks ago…

Wouldn’t this make a fun festive gift? I love how we can dress up a packet of Jaffas and a re-purposed jam jar, and turn it into a cute gift.
All we need is a a little creative ‘elbow grease’, some basic craft supplies and our imagination.
1. Find a recycled decorative jar and make sure it’s really clean. Sauce or jam jars work well.
2. Wrap one of the Snow Festival Designer Printed tags (p12 Australian Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalogue) around the front, and adhere with Sticky Strip or other strong adhesive.
3. Fill contents and replace lid. Tip: Don’t have a lid? Cover with foil or cling wrap and secure with a rubber band.
4. Cover the top with fabric. I used the Scallop Circle Bigz die (p193 Annual Catalogue) to die cut Old Olive fabric from the Essentials Designer Fabric range (p170).
5. Embellish! Hand write your message on the tag (or stamp and punch as I did in the sample above), and dress it up as desired. This is the fun part so let your creativity loose and see what you end up with!

Soooo fun, and it made this project so easy and budget-friendly to put together!

Stampin’ Up! Australia, October 2012 Special: Free Satin Stitched ribbon with every $60 purchase
Each month the demonstrators in our team are invited to participate in swaps. We make cards based on a theme and send them to each other. It’s great fun getting happy mail in the letterbox – not that I need much of an excuse to make cards for my buddies – so this is something I really look forward to each month. :)
This month the theme was ‘CASEing the Catalogue‘. I chose the Congratulations card on page 103 of the Annual Catalogue, featuring the Layered Labels stamp set.
A quick check of the Annual Catalogue Supplies Guide told me what was used in the sample and away I went.
Layered Labels card p103 Annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue: Layered Labels Stamp Set; Whisper White and Wisteria Wonder Card Stock; Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack; Bashful Blue, More Mustard, and Wisteria Wonder Classic Stampin’ Pads; Rose Red 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon; Mini Silver brads; Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies.
As I was making the cards, my eyes kept going towards the other sample on the same page… the little ‘Create’ tag. It’s sooo cute. Well, before I knew it, I’d whipped up 20 of those too! I’ll get the photos sorted and share those soon.

One of the fabulous perks of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is the free products, and last month I was very spoilt with lots of goodies from the Annual and Christmas Holiday catalogues (Australia/NZ). One of the free items was this Oval Accent Bigz Clear die.
…And from the moment I took it out of the box I KNEW I wanted to make these treat holders. They also fit perfectly with this week’s Create With Connie & Mary favour challenge CCMCHOL12-03.
I started putting together a tutorial for my blog, but it was getting VERY long. It’s not that it’s a difficult project, but I took lots of photos which made the tutorial quite lengthy and my blog wasn’t playing nicely with all the images. Soooo…. I’m in the process of creating a FREE PDF with full instructions.

Oval Accent Bigz Clear die treat holder
All Stampin' Up!: Make a Cake stamp set (p44 Annual Catalogue), Itty Bitty Banners (p134), Bitty Banners Framelits Dies (p191), Dazzling Diamonds, Melon Mambo, Extra Wide Oval Punch, StazOn black, Brights Paper Stack
The Itty Bitty Banners stamp set and Bitty Banners Framelits Dies are an awesome pair. A perfect match, no less.
1. Stamp a sheet of sentiments from Itty Bitty Banners in your favourite ink colours. Allow enough room between stampings for the Framelits to fit.
2. Line up all three Bitty Banner Framelits over their matching images. If you're new to Framelits, click here for my Top 3 Framelits Tips.
3. Ta-daaaa….With one roll of the Big Shot you'll have a 'Happy Birthday', a 'For You' and a 'Thank You' image all cut out and ready to use on future projects.
I have an empty brads container on my desk with a handy stash of stamped and die cut sentiments in a variety of colours. Definitely makes life easier.
It's good to know the Bitty Banner Framelits also work perfectly with the ribbons on the Blue Ribbon stamp set (p33)!
