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

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!

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!

Farewell & Thank you gifts

Hi,

So I’ve taken a momentous step in my business,  in closing down my classes and doing more online, blogging, video tutorials, product shares and Team building.

I have been running classes, teaching like minded crafters as well as total beginners – well most of them were complete beginners lol, how to make some amazing cards and techniques for the past 6+ years.

Along the way, many of my customers have become great friends, so I decided I wanted to make some lovely Thank you gifts & cards to show how much it has meant to me to have them join me every month for my classes.  Some of them have been with me from the very beginning even before I set up the business, while I was learning my trade.

Over the next few days I will be sharing with you the gifts I made and how I made them.  I gave them out at my farewell lunch they organised for me as their way of thanking me!

The first is a Pizza Box pop up calendar, post it & pen holder.  It is primarily made from a pizza box which we sell and are in our Seasonal catalogue.  It is a great little box, food friendly, so you could use it to put homemade cookies in and gift wrap it for a loved one.  It will also hold our 3″ x 3″ envelopes so why not make some gorgeous cards and give it as a gift at Christmas?

 

Here are the measurements for the Cardstock (CS), inks etc I used.  There are images below the video with links to my Online shop for you to order any or all of the products. I used four different colours of CS to make 4 different coloured boxes.  So just substitute the coloured CS for the colour you like best:

1x PIZZA BOX (score box lid @ 2¾” from flap edge)

LEMON LIME TWIST CS 3⅜” X 3⅜” x2 (for top & bottom of box)

LEMON LIME TWIST CS 3⅜” X ⅞” x4 (for sides of box)

WHISPER WHITE CS 3¼” X 3¼” x1 (for bottom of box)

WHISPER WHITE CS 3¼” X 1¼” (for top)

WHISPER WHITE CS 3¼” X 6/8” x4 (for sides of box)

WHISPER WHITE CS 1⅝” x ⅝” (for Pen holder), SCORED @ ⅜”, ⅝, FROM BOTH ENDS

EASTERN BEAUTY STAMP SET

MARBLED STAMP SET

LEMON AND LIME TWIST INK PAD

TUXEDO BLACK MOMENTO INK PAD

TRIMMER/SCORER

BONE FOLDER

TEAR N TAPE ADHESIVE

TOMBOW MULTIPURPOSE GLUE

PAPER SNIPS

Click on the video link to see how it’s made.

Why not order some pizza boxes and have a go yourself?  Everything I used is listed below, just click on the image to go to my online shop and place an order.

If you like what you see, why not pop back tomorrow to see the next gift I made for my lovely ladies.

Farewell Lunch

Yesterday was a very special day for me. Last month I decided to stop running my monthly classes and move my business in a new direction and venture. My ladies were all upset but understood why; some of them had been with me from the beginning 6+ years ago, and all had become great friends as well as my customers.
Anyway they decided to organise a Farewell Lunch for me. It was so wonderful to see everyone together and to realise how much they thought of me. I had some lovely cards and gifts from them which was so unexpected.
I had made everyone some lovely gifts and a card which I wrote personal words for each and everyone. That brought tears to a few eyes!
Here’s the gifts I made for everyone. The pendant, was made by my hubby, Mike as his thank you to everyone for supporting me and giving me purpose in life.

 

I shall miss our classes but am sure I will still catch up with these lovely ladies but it’s time to start a new venture!

I hope you will continue dropping by to see how I am progressing and see the new things I am doing!  Over the next week I will be posting video tutorials on how I made the gifts and cards above along with the products I used that you can order from me from my online shop.

Thanks for dropping by!
