Onstage is nearly here!

Hi,

First an update on my lovely hubby, Mike.  Some of you will have heard, my darling hubby, Mike, had a stroke on 12 March, which was both frightening and shocking!  Luckily it was a minor stroke, but it has affected his left side, in particular his arm, but also his speech.  Slowly over the last couple of weeks he has made great progress and is now able to speak properly most of the time.  It is going to be a slow process of rehabilitation, but all the Consultants are confident that he will make a full recovery.

Hence, I have had to make a decision about OnStage and that is that I will not be able to attend this weekend.  OnStage is such a fantastic part of Stampin’Up! and being a Demonstrator it is for most of us, the highlight of the Year!  We get the chance to meet fellow Demonstrators from all over Europe and have the chance to congratulate all those who have achieved milestones within Stampin’Up!

I am pleased to say that 4 of my Direct Downliners and 3 of my second Level Downliners will be going to OnStage and I know they will have a fantastic time!

I had made a card for each of them to give out at OnStage, but as I am unable to go, I gave them it along with a gift from me early.  Here are the cards:

I think they are amazing and it will be a lovely momento of the time they spent at OnStage.  Below are the products I used to make the cards.  I am sure you can think of lots of ways to use the Apron Die, even to make little boxes!  The Die set also comes with BBQ tools, so you could make a lovely male birthday card with that!

Remember to use the Hostess Code S4SGSTEQ for April on your orders and if it’s £20+ you will get a FREE gift just from me as a thank you for placing an order with me.   To see how many of you actually read this post all the way to the bottom,  lol, places an order with me for £30+ AND leaves the Word ‘INSPIRE’ in a comment after this post, will get an extra FREE gift this month.  Don’t miss out!

Thanks

Party Pandas – so cute!

Hi,

I just don’t know where all the time is going!  I can’t believe we are into March already!  Don’t get me started on the weather! GRRRR! Hubby and I were meant to have gone up to see our gorgeous Granddaughter last Wednesday, but the snow here was sooooo bad our village got completely cut off!  All roads in and out blocked!  Thankfully our lovely daughter sent lots of photos to keep us going lol.

Anyway, we are still pressing on with clearing our home ready for a move and so my craft room is shrinking lol.  However I did make a couple of cards last month, one using the gorgeous Saleabrations FREEBIE, Party Pandas.  Aren’t the stamps cute?  So many uses, birthdays, Anniversary, Valentine, just to tell someone you love them, or to say ‘Hi’.

 

Here’s the card I made for my swap at our Pinkies Training last month.

Isn’t it cute?  The great thing about it is it wobbles! Oh yes it does! lol  Gently flick the panda and he wobbles around!  The papers I used for the background was from the 6″ x 6″ Picture Perfect Dsp Pack.  It has proven so popular and has gorgeous colours and images in it.  Just look at all the different patterns you get and with them being 6″ x 6″ they are ideal for cards and scrapbooking alike!

I just love going to our Pinkies Training, being part of such a huge Team, you get to meet so many lovely fellow Demonstrators, get amazing support and fantastic inspiration!  Want to know more contact me and join my Team and you can join me and my team at future trainings!

Below are the products I used to make this fun card!  If you wish to see the video and receive the tutorial, use the Hostess Code for March, place an order for £45+ with me and not only will you get access to the video, the tutorial emailed to you, but if you choose the Party Pandas stamp set as your FREE Saleabration item, I will personally send you a card kit and tutorial to make another beautiful card using your FREE Party Pandas stamp set.  Don’t forget to allow me to contact you when you put in your order via my online shop.

 

Saleabration is almost over, you only have until 31 March 2018 to place an order of £45+ to get any SAB FREEBIES!  The latest lot of SAB products are to die for, especially the gorgeous Springtime Foils SDSP.  Just look at the paper, it is amazing!

Here’s a card I made using this gorgeous paper!  If you spend £90+ on your order, you could get both the Party Pandas stamp set but you could also get these beautiful SDSP!  Then you will be able to join me when I show you how to colour them using various products, inks, aquapainters, marker pens etc, and you will be able to make your own gorgeous cards, just like mine!

Well I guess I better go so you can finish reading and go and place your order with me from my online shop (use the Hostess Code).  Remember all the FREE stuff you will get from me when your order is £45+!!!!!

Look forward to hearing from you soon!

Moving Barn Door Birthday Card!

Hi,

Sorry I’ve been so busy this last couple of weeks with my gorgeous granddaughter and de-cluttering our home ready for putting it on the market!

I haven’t had much time to play but managed to fit in making this lovely card!  I used the amazing Barn Door Bundle from our Seasonal Catalogue (p43)!  It is such an amazing bundle and yes the barn door does actually move from side to side!  Just take a look at the pictures!

I’ve seen a few of these, using small washers for the moving mechanism, but I didn’t have any so I used the 1/2″ circle punch we sell instead with a dimensional between two of them (four in all need punching out).  This was so much fun and I can see this having so many uses, perhaps hiding a photo of your loved one behind the door, for an anniversary card, or a number to celebrate a milestone, the ideas are endless – perhaps you could come up with some.

I have decided to offer you a lovely free gift as well as FREE access to my own video which shows you how to make this amazing card.  Just order the Barn Door Bundle from me via my online shop using February’s Hostess Code and once your order has gone through(remember to allow me to contact you), I will send you a special gift and access to the video.

Don’t forget it’s also still SALEABRATION Time! So if you buy this Bundle and some cardstock, dimensionals etc, which total  £45 or more you can choose one of our amazing Saleabration products ABSOLUTELY FREE!!  How great is that, it’s a fantastic time to take up my offer of a free gift just from me, free access to my video showcasing how to make this wonderful card AND, spend £45 and get a FREE Saleabration product too!  Remember to use my hostess code!

Below are the products I used to make this card, just click on them and place your order today!

 

Thanks for dropping by and I look forward to hearing from you very soon!

Subscribe to my Website

Hi,

I am in the process of moving my business in a new direction, and I would love to have you all subscribe to my blog so that you don’t miss my gorgeous projects and can follow me and join me in my new venture!

As many of you know, I ran for many many years classes in my own home with a lot of absolutely amazing ladies, who came every month and made my classes an absolute joy!  I began to find that my classes were becoming so big and I was needing to do more and more classes each month, which in turn meant I had a lot more prepping to do for all the classes.  I kept getting more enquiries about joining my classes, so after a lot of thought and soul searching, I made the ?brave? lol decision that perhaps it was time to make some changes in my business and do it online!  I know every single lady from my classes was upset and didn’t want me to stop running the classes at my home, but I knew it was time for me to make changes.

So in the coming months you will see this blog start to change, but my name BB Card Designs will still be ‘me’ lol.  The picture above will be prominent on all my social media sites – youtube, pinterest, facebook, twitter, instagram, so if you see either or both you will know it’s still lil ole me! lol.

If you have already subscribed to this blog brilliant, but if you have subscribed but may be are not receiving notifications when I have put a new post up, it may be that you didn’t complete the 2-steps to subscribing.

Firstly, under the word ‘subscribe’ on my side bar there is a box.  Please fill in your email address and click submit.  You will then be sent an email to that address you entered, which you must open and click on the link within that email so that your subscription is then activated!  lol Honest it’s not complicated, lol.  You will then be told your subscription was successful, but I promise you I will not be bombarding you with spam, just honest to goodness amazing projects, products etc to get you crafting!

Now, again many of you know I have a Youtube Channel, well actually I have two! lol.  I noticed the other day, that I used to upload my videos I made to Sue Hall on youtube and I have hundreds of followers on there.  Now however, I upload them to BB Card Designs Channel, because my business is so big now I don’t feel I need to be known so much as Sue Hall lol.  Only problem is I only have about 8 followers to my BB Card Designs! boo hoo! lol.  Could I ask you, pretty please, if you can check which youtube channel you subscribed to in order to watch my videos and if it was Sue Hall, could you subscribe to BB Card Designs too?  That way, you will see ALL my videos, regardless of when I put them up!

Stamparatus meets Cake Soiree

Hi

Continuing on from previous posts and videos showcasing how to use the Stamparatus, todays post shows you a beautiful card I made using the Brand New Stamp Set Cake Soiree.  I absolutely adore this stamp set and in fact the whole Suite is to die for!  Remember you can get your hands on a share of the products in the Cake Soiree Suite. After reading this post and watching the video, go to my Product Share page and order your share!

Anyway back to this lovely card.

Using the Stamparatus to stamp out all the flowers and the leaves was so quick and easy!  Watch the Video to see how I made this gorgeous card!

Brilliant wasn’t it!  I can’t believe how much easier and quicker it was to stamp out all those flowers and leaves and then how easy it was cutting them all out using the matching dies and the big shot!  The fact that there are two dies for each of the flowers and the different leaves, made it so much quicker, but by using the hinge technique with the stamparatus, meant that I didn’t waste any cardstock!

I’m sure you’ll agree Cake Soiree Stamp Set and matching dies is a lovely set to have.  Here is another card I made using the Cake Soiree Stamp Set as well as the Stamparatus.  For the embossed background I used the new Scattered Sequins Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, another product from the same suite.

Below are all the products I used,  just click on them to go to my online shop to place an order.  Remember to use the new Hostess Code for January and providing you allow me to contact you, I will send you a lovely gift especially from me as a thank you for choosing me as your demonstrator to place your order through.  Spend £20+ and you will get an extra special gift from me.

Here are just a couple more beautiful cards I made using this amazing stamp set and dies!

I hope you enjoyed the video and loved seeing all these gorgeous cards! Don’t forget to place your order and remember it’s Saleabration Time, so you can get your hands on some amazing FREE products!
