IDEAS Tutorial Bundle (Mar 2021): Adventure & Travel

Published by under cards | Mar 02 2021

The March IDEAS tutorial bundle is now available!

This amazing document has been carefully curated just for you, and is filled with project ideas and inspiration… and all focusing on TRAVEL & ADVENTURE.

It was created by the IDEAS Design Team – a collective of international crafters – who each create unique tutorials to help inspire you and to make your crafting easy and fun.

The collage above is a sneak peek of the amazing projects the Design Team have contributed to this month’s tutorial bundle. 

To get your hands on the document, simply place a $50+ order of Stampin’ Up! products with me during the month of March. 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 (contact me for details) and is provided to my team members for free in our team forum.

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.

March Theme: Travel & Adventure

Our theme this month is “Travel & Adventure” which is kind of a fun topic seeing so many of us aren’t doing any real travel at the moment! Let’s dream about it instead.

I started with the stamp set, and chose Whale Done. This stamp set is perfect for an adventure theme.

And this is what I came up with…

This card has a punched window on the front.

Though the window you can see a school of fish swimming by (on the inside of the card).

You can have a look at a sneak peek of each of the designer’s projects by joining us on this blog hop. Click on the button below to visit the next blog on our hop.

Don’t forget, all it takes is a $50AUD order anytime in March and the entire tutorial bundle is yours.

Happy stamping,

Love You Always: YCCI (You Can Create It)

Published by under cards | Feb 02 2021

Each month our You Can Create It (YCCI) subscribers are given a packet of supplies – like cardstock, paper and embellishments – and the challenge is to turn those supplies into a completed project.

The January packet featured some of the gorgeous products from the Love You Always suite, new to the January-June mini Stampin’ Up! catalogue.

The packet included:

For the challenge, subscribers can also add anything from the ‘extra materials’ packet (I used thick white cardstock) or anything from their own supplies.

I used most of the monthly kit contents to make a square 4×4 card, and the extra ribbon and heart charm on the chocolate treat below.

You may have heard me say it before, but oh my goodness, I love those Foam Adhesive Sheets! I backed one of the sheets on to white cardstock and then cut with dies to create the “Just Want To Say” sentiment.
Instant dimension!


Design Team Projects

Once again the YCCI design team have done an amazing job of converting these items to stunning projects. Enjoy the inspiration and if you’d like more info just click on the artist’s name.

Rose Packer
Alanna Wharf
Karina Chin

Registration for YCCI kits is currently closed, but if you’d like to go on the waiting list for the next quarterly round, please contact me. Spots are limited.

Cost for each quarter is AUD$25. Best of all, you’ll get to see and try brand new products.

Were you inspired by the contents in this month’s pack?

Play along with us!

Just gather up these same supplies and see what you can come up with.

Let’s create!

IDEAS Tutorial Bundle (Feb 2021): Fun Fold Theme

Published by under cards | Feb 02 2021

The February IDEAS tutorial bundle is now available!

This amazing document has been carefully curated just for you, and is filled with project ideas and inspiration… and all focusing on FUN FOLD CARDS.

It was created by the IDEAS Design Team – a collective of international crafters – who each create unique tutorials to help inspire you and to make your crafting easy and fun.

February Theme: Fun Folds

Our theme this month is “Fun Folds” – one of the most commonly requested topics that I receive! We all love a fancy fold, with an unexpected twist or a pop up or an unusual design. And I know you’ll love all of these.

I chose a simple but effective layout for my card. You can see the outside of my card at the top of this post.

If you slide the belly-band off you’ll see it opens up like this:

And inside the section is a slide out note card.

The January IDEAS tutorial bundle is now available!

This amazing 70+ page document has been carefully curated just for you, and is filled with project ideas and inspiration. Perfect timing too, because Sale-a-bration officially kicks off TODAY – Tuesday 5th January – here in Australia. The new January-June 2021 Mini Catalogue is live from today… New products… HOORAY.

The tutorial bundle document has been created by the IDEAS Design Team – a collective of international demonstrators – who each create unique tutorials to help inspire you and to make your crafting easy and fun.

January Theme: Loving Sale-a-bration

Our theme this month is “Loving Sale-a-bration” which could be a love theme with wedding, anniversary, Valentine, or simply a focus on a SAB item that we personally love.

The variety of projects here is phenomenal, I know you’re going to love it!

I chose two items to feature in my projects: The Oh So Ombre 6×6 paper pack and the A Touch of Ink stamp set. Both of which I LOVE.

The mini handbag is made from a 6×6 square of patterned paper! All instructions are clearly stepped out in the tutorial.
