September IDEAS Tutorial: Cork Projects

Published by under cards | Sep 07 2021

The year is racing along… I can hardly believe it’s already time to launch the September IDEAS tutorial bundle – but here it is! If you’re not familiar with IDEAS tutorial bundle, let me tell you that you can get this huge document (usually around 70 pages each month) for FREE as a gift for placing a $50+ order anytime during the month.

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 sure to be a hit: Masculine projects!

These tutorials were created by the IDEAS Design Team, a collective of international crafters. Each contributor makes unique tutorials to help inspire you and to make your crafting easy and fun. You’ll find at least a card and a 3D project from EVERY one of the talented contributors within the pages of this tutorial bundle.

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 SEPTEMEBER. 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.

September 2021 Theme: Everything Masculine

Many of us find it a little challenging to make cards or projects for the men in our lives. If you fall into that category too, then you’re in for a treat this month. Each member of the design team has created a 3D project and a card that is suitable for men.

This month I used the Cork specialty paper… which, let me tell you, is like nothing I’ve ever worked with before. It has an almost velvety feel to it, and does feel more like wood than paper, but also has the flexibility of material/fabric. It’s quite hard to explain, really! I found it really interesting to work with, and absolutely loved the result.

My projects include a square card and a decorated note book.

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 which is from Sara Rayner!

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

Happy stamping,

    Love the stamping on the cord using a set that I’m not that keen on. But I think I need to ink it up again. Thank you for the inspiration x
