An update & VIP Bundle Offer

Published by under cards

Oh my goodness, I almost don’t know where to begin!

I am sitting here reflecting on one of the most crazy, busy, wonderful, exhausting, exhilarating and FUN four weeks since I became a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator 7 years ago.

Seriously.

SimonesCrazyMay

Ok, so how about we start with a quick summary – and I promise I’ll be back to go into more details later. Then I’ll let you know about an exclusive VIP offer for YOU.

.

  • Four weeks ago my hubby and I left Australia for the 2015 Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip.
  • It was a 27 hour journey to get to Florida.
  • We had a fab few days in Miami (wow) and Fort Lauderdale (gorgeous).
  • Then we boarded the Allure of the Seas – the world’s largest ocean liner – for our Caribbean Cruise (**squeal, and yes it really was as awesome as it sounds)
  • 40 hours after disembarking we were back home in Australia.
  • Unpacked suitcase
  • Four fun classes/events in 6 days
  • Packed suitcase
  • WOOHOOO – Annual Leadership Day followed by 3 amazing days at Convention for Stampin’ Up! Australia/NZ.
  • Home again, home again, jiggity jig!

I’ll have a lot more to say about both the Incentive Trip and Convention soon, but in the meantime you can always check out my Stamping With Simone Facebook page.

Stampin’ Up! Starburst Framelits

Published by under cards

Make A WishHave you checked out the Starburst Framelits Dies on page 34 of the seasonal Stampin’ Up! catalogue?

Make A Wish & Starburst Framelits

There is a matching stamp set – Starburst Sayings – but it’s a great die to combine with other stamps too.

I love how the framelits work so well with my fave circle punches.
Handy hint: To layer framelits in a corner (as in the picture above), first attach them to the embossed layer then cut the sides evenly with your paper trimmer. The final step is to adhere this finished layer to the pre-scored base card.
Happy stamping,
Simone Bartrum, Stampin' Up! demonstrator Australia, Victoria

Stampin’ Up!: So Very Grateful

Published by under cards

One of the unexpected surprises in this year’s Occasions Catalogue is the stamp set called So Very Grateful.

I’ve seen some stunning projects created with it where the flowers really pop! Check out this one by the talented Sandi MacIver, this stunning card by Amy O’Neill, and this super-clever creation by Zoe Williams and shared on Wendy Lee’s site. Beautiful!

In today’s card I’ve used the large flower stamp from this set in a slightly different way. Instead of watercolouring the flowers, we have combined it with the Washi-Tape technique (aka painter’s tape technique) for a simple line art effect.

 So Very Grateful

We used the Stampin’ Up! ink colours of Crisp Cantaloupe, Pool Party and Crushed Curry.

Happy stamping!
