December IDEAS: Paper Piecing

Published by under cards

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.

Seasonal Sale starts – NOW!

Published by under cards

What a week! I’ve just returned from an amazing trip to Sydney for the annual Stampin’ Up! conference (OnStage). But before we get into that, I had to let you know about a FABULOUS 4-day sale which is now on.

  • 10% off punches
  • 15% off stamps (Host stamp sets are not included in this sale)
  • 20% off dies
  • 20% off embossing folders
  • 20% off non-specialty Designer Series Paper

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

  • Select items from the Annual Catalogue are on sale
  • Download the full list here
  • Sale runs from Tuesday 15th Nov – Friday 18th Nov
  • While supplies last… so get in early in case your fave item sells out before the end of the sale
  • HANDY HINT: With these great discounts you will often find it’s a BETTER DEAL to buy stamps and dies individually instead of in the bundle. 

Don’t forget, if you spend over $50 with me you’re eligible for this month’s IDEAS Tutorial bundle which is 67 pages long! This will be emailed to you after you order.

And if you spend over $250, you’re also eligible for FREE PRODUCTS in the form of Stampin’ Rewards – at least 10% of your order total in free products! You will choose these free products at the time of ordering.

Simone’s Top Picks

Some of my ALL-TIME FAVOURITE products are on sale!

1. Go To Greetings stamp set

This literally is my ‘go to’ set for greetings. Absolutely love the range of fonts and sizes that can be used separately or together! You can see I used it on the left side of the card front panel. The die cut “Thank You” is also on sale at the moment! It’s from Charming Sentiments along with the matching Sentiment Silhouette dies.

2. Stylish Shapes dies

These would have to be my MOST used dies over the past year. I literally use them every single week. Don’t miss it!

3. Trimming The Tree stamp set

I love how this is such a pretty tree, and the sentiments are great. I tend to not use “Happy Holidays” on my cards, but would definitely use the other sentiments. It’s a 2-step stamp set, so use different shades of green on the feature tree and leafy highlights for a WOW look. Try embossing the tinsel/lights with gold or silver embossing powder for the perfect finish. If you want a simple and easy Christmas stamp set, this is it.

4. Happy Forrest Friends and Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper

I couldn’t decide which is my fave paper pattern so I’ve listed them both.
These papers just makes me happy! The little critters are so cute and the colours of those flowers… just stunning. You can fussy cut them out or use them on the sheet.
Oh and the matching Happier Than Happy stamp set is also on sale.

Once I started this list I realised I actually have many, many more favourites on sale!

Jump on over to the online store and check them out. I promise, it’s worth it. I reckon you’ll have you’re own ‘favourites’ list before long.

One easy way is to add your favourites to the cart as you’re browsing and then finalise your list at the end. Don’t forget you’re eligible for free products with a qualifying order, so some of those items might swap over to your freebies.

Got questions? Shoot me an email or message me on Facebook.

My tutorial this month is a thank you card that features the Fitting Florets stamp set and dies. This is an early release from the upcoming January – June mini catalogue, along with a few limited edition products including the designer series paper shown here.

It’s a non-standard card fold too! It’s fun to mix things up and give the recipient a surprise when they open the card.

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 NOVEMBER. 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.
