July IDEAS: Beautiful Balloons

Published by under cards | Jul 06 2023

The IDEAS team is back again with a new theme… ‘Holidays’! This covers everything from Christmas in July (or New Years, as I have done), or it could be travel related. No matter how we chose to interpret the theme, I know you’ll love what our designers all created for you this month.

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

I used the amazing Beautiful Balloons suite of products for my projects this month. We have a card with a window pane, and also a mini gift bag. This could be a fun gift for a New Years Eve party, but swap the sentiment for a birthday greeting and you have an all-year-round project as well.

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 JULY. 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.

June IDEAS: Timeless Arrangements

Published by under cards | Jun 08 2023

The IDEAS team has a colourful collection of projects to share with you this month. This month the theme is ‘Colour Me Happy’.

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

I am featuring the brand new 2023-2025 In Color collection for my projects. These muted, neutral-based colours are so different to work with – for me – but I really love them!

My projects feature the Timeless Arrangements bundle of stamps and coordinating dies. Have you seen these products? Wow, can I just say, you have to go check out the dies. So clever! The flower and leaf dies have little bars on them so you can easily adhere them behind sentiments or other shapes. Check them out here to see what I mean.

My projects include a modification to the In Color Treat Bags and a matching card.

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 JUNE.

May IDEAS: Zany Zoo Fast & Fabulous Cards

Published by under cards | May 04 2023

The IDEAS team is back to share another round of amazing tutorials with you. This month the theme is ‘Fast & Fabulous’ and that includes cards that also have a ‘wow’. Of course we are also featuring products from the NEW 2023-2024 Annual Catalogue… love that!

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

I reached for the Zany Zoo suite of products to make my projects. There’s just something so happy and fun about this paper especially. I really enjoyed working with it.

My 16 year old daughter helped me work on this card. She has been on school holidays and now that the older two kids have moved away we are spending lots of quality time together. Today we went on a picnic lunch, a bike ride and she gave me the idea for this card.

It’s held closed with a belly band and inside is a wild and crazy time happening on a theatre stage.

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 MAY. 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.

April IDEAS: Cards That Move

Published by under cards | Apr 06 2023

The IDEAS team is back to share another round of amazing tutorials with you. This month the theme is ‘Cards That Move’ and that includes cards that pop, flap, wiggle or jiggle. How fun!

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

My card was inspired by a project that my team member Gail shared with me on our last catch-up.

Every month or so the local demonstrators in my team come over for a fun crafternoon where we make cards and show what we’ve been working on. I loved Gail’s card so after she left I had a wonderful session in my craft room, playing with different measurements and designs until I came up with this one.

What I love about this card is that it looks very fancy, with its pop-out centre panel, but it closes down to a compact standard card size and fits into a regular envelope!

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 APRIL. 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.
