November IDEAS Tutorial: Starlit Punch

Published by under cards | Nov 02 2021

Today I’m excited that we’re launching the November IDEAS Tutorial bundle.

This amazing tutorial bundle has been carefully curated just for you. It is filled with project ideas and inspiration… and all featuring different stamps and suites. The theme this month is Punch It Up – so many fun and different ways you can use Stampin’ Up! punches.

These tutorials were created by the IDEAS Design Team, a group of international crafters. Each contributor makes unique tutorials to help inspire you and to make your crafting easy and fun. You’ll find projects from each of the talented contributors within the pages of this tutorial bundle. Some include multiples!

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

To get your hands on this file, 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.

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.

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 check out the next great project by Odette!

Halloween Alternative – YCCI

Published by under cards | Oct 03 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 September packet featured Halloween-inspired products.

The packet included:

  • Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper,
  • black Glitter paper,
  • Black & White Gingham ribbon
  • black cardstock
  • Pumpkin Pie cardstock

For the challenge, subscribers can also add anything from the ‘extra materials’ packet or anything from their own supplies.

My card is… surprise, surprise…. NOT a Halloween card!

I decided to use the same supplies to make a general ‘hello’ card, just to show how versatile the products are.

Design Team Projects

Once again the YCCI design team have done an amazing job of converting these items to stunning projects. Enjoy the inspiration!

Mikaela Titheridge
Rose Packer
Aude Barbara
Karen Hadler
Heike Fallwickl
Karina Chin
Danielle Kassing
Linda Cullen
Anja Luft

October-December kits are being sent out this week. Registration for the next round of YCCI kits is now open (January-March 2022, 3 months of supplies sent quarterly). Interested? Contact me.

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!

Happy stamping,
