IDEAS: Nature’s Sweetness Suite

Published by under cards

February is here with a new month of inspirational projects from the Ideas design team.

This month we are focusing on different suites offered by Stampin’ Up!. Suites are more than a bundle. They often include coordinating paper, embellishments and ribbon or trim.

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

My projects this month feature the Nature’s Sweetness suite of products. Did you know that the stamp images in the Lovely & Sweet stamp set are of the cacao pods and flowers (chocolate!), flat-leafed vanilla and also almonds. No wonder this set is called Lovely & Sweet.

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 2024. 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.
CONTACT ME to order your tutorials.

IDEAS: Softly Sophisticated Sale-a-bration

Published by under cards

The new year is here and so is a brand new Mini Catalogue and Sale-a-bration brochure! And from today here in Australia they are both live. (I’ll post more about this later today).

Sale-a-bration is one of our favourite events on the Stampin’ Up! calendar.

The IDEAS design team is kicking off 2024 with a a focus on the new Sale-a-bration products which you can choose for free with a qualifying purchase during January and February 2024.

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

My projects this month feature the Softly Sophisticated stamp set and embossing folder combo. The stamp set is actually a 2-step stamp set, with the stems on one stamp and the flowers on another.

And as for the embossing folder, it can be used to create both embossed and debased images with both looking amazing! The square pillow box shown below and the Bubble Bath pink panel on the card shows both ways.

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 2024. This can be done through my online store, or by contacting me by email, by Facebook or phone.

Dec IDEAS: Holographic fun with cutting dies

Published by under cards

Oh my gosh, it really is hard to believe that we are in December already! Not long until we will be welcoming in a new year. Amazing.

The IDEAS design team is finishing off 2023 with a new set of fabulous tutorials for you, with the theme of “We’re Cut Out to be Friends”. What does this mean? Well, it’s all about the different ways we using cutting in our projects – such as die cutting, fussy cutting, interesting folds, and more.

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

My projects this month feature the Holographic Trio paper… which, let me tell you, is not easy to photograph but WOW it sure is stunning in person! The feature wording on the front of these cards are all die-cut from the Holographic paper.

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 December 2023. 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.

Nov IDEAS: Winter Meadow Cards

Published by under cards

The IDEAS design team is celebrating 5 wonderful years! I’ve been with the group for just over 3 years and I have to say I really love everything about this great program. We collaborate to bring you – our valued customers – an amazing bundle of tutorials each and every month. Most months the document is between 60-80 pages long! It’s a lovely bonus for our Stampin’ Up! team members too.

For November our theme is ‘Spread the Sparkle’. We have a great range of tutorials created by talented crafters from around the world, all featuring glimmer, glitter, or shiny sparkles.

And as a little bit of extra fun, we’ve all incorporated the element of ‘5’ to celebrate our 5th birthday. What’s my 5? Well, I made 5 cards! One card for every year of tutorial bundles.

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

My projects this month feature the lovely Winter Meadow Designer Series Paper, which is a truly gorgeous pack of patterned paper that works beautifully for winter-themed Christmas cards (you might have seen samples like those in the current mini catalogue). In my part of the world, we are in the middle of Summer during December so a wintery Christmas just doesn’t happen. I wanted to showcase the versatility of this paper pack for general cards.

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 November 2023. 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.
