A very Vintage Christmas

Today I was inspired to use my printed Acetate sheets to create this lovely card.  I love both the gold and silver options (they are gold on one side and silver on the other!) and they match up so well with our Christmas stamps and papers!

I used Soft Suede ink to add a more "aged" look to the crumb cake cardstock.  Its a simple card, but all that gold and bling makes it look rich and elegant.

Here is a product list below should you wish to purchase any of these items for yourself!

Sneak Peek of Dragonfly Dreams - Coming your way in January 2017

Today I decided to take a quick break from Christmas projects and create something with brand new products. This stuff is so new its not actually released yet.  These gorgeous dragonflies will be coming your way on the 4th January 2017!  The set is called Dragonfly Dreams and its a beautiful bundle of both stamps and framelits.  I fell in love with them when we were in Brisbane at the Onstage event recently, and you are going to love them too!

This card features a watercoloured background on Shimmery White paper, and I cut the Dragonfly shape with the Framelits from whisper white cardstock.  The sentiment is also from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set - it has some really nice words.

If you'd like to get up close and personal with new products including these I am holding a New Catalogue Launch on the 7th January, at 2pm. The afternoon will include lots of playtime so that you can check out a range of new items, plus afternoon tea.  If you are in driving distance of the Central Coast, NSW then come along and celebrate the launch of this catalogue with me! Its beautiful!  Here are the launch details:

Date: Saturday 7th January @ 2pm
Cost: $15

Come and see what's new AND get your hands on new products and launch-only specials!  All supplies and afternoon tea included plus prizes, specials, tips and great company!

Merry Medley and Tin of Tags on the Retiring List... get them before they are gone!

This is the time of year that I start creating with about-to-retire-products like a mad woman. Why?  Because our retirement list (and end of year sale) were released yesterday, and so this month is kind of like a last hurrah where I get to play with my retiring favourites.

Today I've picked "Merry Medley" and "Tin of Tags" to create this lovely card.  I've included a product list for you below.  But in the meantime you NEED to check out the retiring list of products to make sure that you don't miss out on the ones that you love!  Every single year I hear from customers after the products are discontinued... asking if they can still get product X.... and the answer is no... Im so sorry!!!  Every. Single. Year. 

So don't let that be you!  Make sure you check out the list HERE to see which items are retiring (many are marked down!) and order them while you still can. 

Have a lovely day!!!

Last Online Christmas Class of the Year!

Welcome to the latest Online class for my Australian crafters!  If you find it hard to make it to actual classes due to either time or distance then Online classes are for you!  All the hard work has been done... the supplies are sent directly to you, all cut and scored and ready to go. All you need to do is stamp, use your Big Shot and assemble.  The fun stuff right?

This time I have chosen a colour palette of Navy, white and silver... such a classy combination, and you really can't go wrong! You will love them! 

Here are the steps to enrol in this class:

  1. Go to the Online Store and log in with your email address (or "Create Account" if you've not used the store before). You need to make sure I am selected as your demonstrator, and DO NOT itch the box that says you don't wish to be contacted by StampinUp as I won't be able to see your name, address or other details to send the supplies you need. 
  2. One you are in the store you will be able to use the headings on the left to navigate.  You can either type the name of what you want into the search box, or visit the Holiday Catalogue heading, and then click the Holiday Bundles heading. You will see the Star of Light bundle appearing there, click on this and add it to your bag. 
  3. If you wish to add to your order after the bundle you are welcome to do that of course. Simple use the "continue shopping" button to add more items as necessary. 
  4. Check out and make sure you have added the host code!  For this class only it is SHADM4AB.  Payment is by Credit Card. Postage is $5.95 for orders up to approximately $120. After that, postage is 5% of your order. 
  5. Once you have submitted your order with the code, I will receive an email telling me you have ordered the bundle (or equivalent items) and then I will add you to the list of attendees.  
  6. I've prepared supply packs with all the pre-cut papers you will need for these projects (just like attending a real live class in my studio!) an these will start to be mailed out by 2nd December. Video tutorial links will also be sent to attendees. 
  7. Enjoy and create these gorgeous projects!
You'll find more information in the tab above labelled "Last Online Christmas Class of the Year!"

Remember, sign up is for 4 DAYS ONLY! I will close this one off on the 2nd December so that I can get your supplies out to you quickly!

Dont forget to use the code: SHADM4AB

Sweet and Simple card with the Blooms and Bliss DSP

Yesterday I was in a bit of a rush to get out the door... and I needed a quick card before I left. This is what I came up with..... it met the 'simple' criteria, plus I think this paper is oh so pretty don't you??

You might like to know that the Tin of Tags stamp set is still available right now for 25% off.  And also note that due to overwhelming popularity the Stitched Shapes Framelits are currently on Back Order and unavailable until approximately the 5th December.

Below is a product list so that you can recreate it for yourself!  Enjoy!

Sneak Peek - Dragonfly Dreams Tag

This week I am extra busy looking after all the customer orders coming through for our Online Extravaganza sale.  One question I would like to answer that has been asked several times is..... "Do I need to order through the Online Store to get the specials and discounts?"  And the answer is no... you can order through your demonstrator, OR via the Online store... and you'll still get the discounts. However, it certainly is easier to order through the store... and you don't need to wait for me to be available!  You can order anytime!  The sale will run until Monday 28th November.

So... on to today's project!  You might be thinking "Hey! I don't remember seeing those beautiful die cut Dragaonflies anywhere!!! Where on earth did you get them!"  And the answer is..... they aren't available....... YET!  The Dragonfly Dreams bundle will be available in the upcoming Occasions Catalogue due out on the 4th January 2017!  If you want one, then make sure you order them quickly when they are released because they sure are going to be popular!  My suggestion is to make sure you are on my mailing list for the new catalogue (which I'll be sending out in December to my Australian customers) and then be sure to grab this gorgeous bundle for yourself!

Or here's another cool idea.... grab a Gift Card for Christmas!  I'm making up gift cards to any amount you choose which can then be redeemed on any products of your choice from either this catalogue or the new ones.  If you'd like a gift card, then be sure to contact me soon and I'll make one up for you!

And one last thing... the gorgeous white lace stamping you see on my tag above... thats a sneak peek at one of the new FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp sets!  It will be free with a $90 order from the 4th January.

Enjoy the tag and I'll be back with more soon!

Merry Mice for a gorgeous Watercoloured Christmas Card

I hadn't purchased these Merry Mice stamps (from the current Holiday catalogue) but with them being 25% off right now, and having seen so many awesome cards made with them, well... how could I resist??? Obviously I couldnt!  They came in my delivery from Stampin'Up! today and the first thing I did was open them up and make this card right away.

I stamped the main image in Archival black ink, and then used my aqua painter to colour the mouse in.  I used a little Real Red glimmer paper and also the Candy Cane Lane washi tape as my background.  It really is a very simple card!

Right now this is one of the sets being offered at 25% off... but only until the end of November.  Click the "Shop Now" button to visit the store and check out the stamp sets on special.

Here's a product list for this project:
