Feb IDEAS: Regency Park Suite

Published by under cards | Feb 02 2023

The IDEAS team is back to share another round of amazing tutorials with you. This month the theme is ‘That’s So Suite of You’ with the focus being on the amazing suites in both the annual and mini catalogues.

The collage above is a sneak peek of the projects the Design Team have contributed this month.

My projects (see above) use the Regency Park suite which includes quite a large range of coordinating products in the new mini catalogue.

It might not look it from the image above, but one of the cards is a fun fold!

I experimented by combining two different features from cards I had received or made in recent months. Something a bit different that I know you’ll love to make.

To get your hands on this file of tutorials, including the projects shown here, simply place a $50+ order of Stampin’ Up! products with me during the month of FEBRUARY. This can be done through my online store, or by contacting me by email, by Facebook or phone. It’s also available for separate purchase and is provided to my team members for free in our team forum and also to my stamp club members. Once you have received the tutorials, please remember they are for your personal use only, so that means you can’t distribute any printed or electronic copies of these bundles.

Don’t forget this is the final month of Sale-a-bration for 2023. To learn more about Sale-a-bration and how you can earn free products, or join my team my team for the amazing perks, check this post.

Surprise! New Sale-a-bration Gifts

Published by under cards | Feb 01 2023

Welcome to February! And what a lovely surprise to find today with the release of a swag of NEW Sale-a-bration rewards. Not sure what Sale-a-bration is all about? Check this post.

The new options are actually products from the current annual and mini catalogues, so this is a fabulous opportunity!

Did you notice in the flyer that you actually get TWO spools of that white frayed ribbon? Very cool.

Punches are always a favourite and both the Songbird and Essential Tag punches are valued at $34 each!

Essentials Tag Punch $34 or FREE with a $90
Songbird Punch $34 or FREE with a $90 order

I’m loving the Enjoy the Journey paper and only just recently restocked my supply, so take my advice and get it for free if you get the opportunity!

This is truly versatile paper. Just add a sentiment or create silhouettes with dies cut from black cardstock…

Don’t look past the Loveliest Layers Decorative Masks either. They are actually really clever, but keep in mind they are only $18.50 to buy from the catalogue, so you might prefer to add them to your order instead of get them as a Sale-a-bration freebie. It’s nice to have the choice!

I hope you enjoyed these creative ideas and have fun shopping during February. Don’t forget you also get 80 pages of creative ideas sent to you as a gift from me with any order over $50. Check tomorrow’s post for a sneak peek of some of the projects in the bundle.

January IDEAS: Loving Sale-a-bration

Published by under cards | Jan 05 2023

Today is a VERY EXCITING day with the launch of Sale-a-bration here in Australia AND a brand new mini catalogue. To learn more about Sale-a-bration and the rest of today’s big announcements, check this post. For now, I’m thrilled to share with you a sneak peek of the latest IDEAS Tutorial Bundle: with the theme of “Loving Sale-a-bration”. Very appropriate! We have so much to show you, in fact almost every Sale-a-bration item is represented in this bundle of projects, thanks to the design team’s fabulous work again this month!

The collage above is a sneak peek of the projects the Design Team have contributed this month.

My projects (see above) use the Something Fancy bundle of stamps and dies, and the Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper Sale-a-bration item. I have to admit, I wasn’t too sure about those papers to start with but WOW there’s more than meets the eye. I’m surprised but it’s one of the products I’ve used over and over again during the past few weeks. I know you’ll love these projects, and of course they can be easily adapted to your own supplies.

To get your hands on this file of tutorials, including the projects shown here, simply place a $50+ order of Stampin’ Up! products with me during the month of JANUARY. This can be done through my online store, or by contacting me by email, by Facebook or phone. It’s also available for separate purchase and is provided to my team members for free in our team forum and also to my stamp club members. Once you have received the tutorials, please remember they are for your personal use only, so that means you can’t distribute any printed or electronic copies of these bundles.

December IDEAS: Paper Piecing

Published by under cards | Dec 06 2022

This month the IDEAS team is back with a bundle of inspirational tutorials, all with the theme “We are cut out to be friends”… CUT being the operative word! Yes, it’s all about fussy cutting, die cutting, punching out with punches, and more.

The collage above is a sneak peek of the projects the Design Team have contributed this month.

My tutorial this month is a card that features fussy cutting and the Paper Piecing tutorial. It was inspired by a fabulous card that I made at a recent crafting day with my wider team of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators. It has been so long since I did Paper Piecing on a card so it was fabulous to try my hand again with newer stamps and papers.

To get your hands on this file of tutorials, including for the card shown here, simply place a $50+ order of Stampin’ Up! products with me during the month of DECEMBER. This can be done through my online store, or by contacting me by email, by Facebook or phone. It’s also available for separate purchase and is provided to my team members for free in our team forum and also to my stamp club members. Once you have received the tutorials, please remember they are for your personal use only, so that means you can’t distribute any printed or electronic copies of these bundles.
