Pinkies Blog Hop

Pinkies Annual Catalogue Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We are showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the New Stampin’Up!® Annual Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!

This is my first time in the Pinkies Blog Hop and I am so excited to be joining you for the June Blog Hop! Especially because I get to showcase some lovely New Products, which means lots of ‘play’ time for me in my Craft Room.  I hope you like what you see and hope you will look around my Website later on after you have been all the way through the Pinkies Blog Hop.

I decided to showcase the Build A Birthday Stamp Set. There is so much you can do with this stamp set, just look what I did with it, party invitations, decorate party gift bags, decorate gift boxes as well as make lovely Birthday Cards.  I also used Cherry on the Top Washi Tape and another new Stamp Set, Tin of Cards. By combining the Build a Birthday Stamp Set with the Washi tape, you can mix things up to get some great effects.

So here’s the projects I made:

As you can see I have made a gorgeous birthday card with three candles peeking out of a hole, an Invitation again with three candles, a lovely decorated Petite Cafe Gift Bag, for all those goodies the children take home with them, and finally a mini treat box to put either sweets or a small cake inside.

Here is the birthday card, the invitation and the decorated gift bag for a closer look:

Brand New Catalogue, Products

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all well and have found the time to do some crafting?  Well, I have been so so busy this month, that trying to fit in writing this has been hard, but hopefully it will be worth it and you will enjoy seeing what I have been up to in my classes.  I have used Brand New Products from the Brand New Catalogue.  In this post you will see one of the new products, the You’ve Got This Stamp Set, alongside the Mini Treat Bag Dies which proved so popular last year, it has been carried over into this Brand New Catalogue!  I hope you like the look of the projects I made and taught in my Classes this month, and fall in love with the Brand New Products as well as old faithfuls.  Order online with me through my Online shop, just click the Online Shop button above this post.

To begin with, we had our Brand New Stampin’Up! Annual Catalogue come out on 2 June, so I had great fun looking through it trying to choose which new products I fancied buying and then designing my June Classes using these gorgeous Products!

Here was the first one: The stamp set, ‘You’ve Got This’.  When I first saw it at Telford, when I went with some of my team to a Stampin’Up! training, I loved it and knew I had to have it! Do you ever feel like that, you are shown something and you sit there thinking oh my goodness gotta have that! lol

It is an amazing Stamp Set so versatile and my Classes loved it. Here’s the Projects I taught at my Monthly Classes as well as a 1-2-1.

There are so many new products as well as alot of products that have proven so popular that they have been carried over, I am sure you would love a copy of the Brand New Catalogue for yourselves to sit back, relax with a lovely cuppa and make a long wish list.
Why not hold a party, that way you get to craft with friends, play with the new products and may be you get to choose some of these gorgeous New Products Free for yourself (dependent on Sales at your party). Want to know more please get in touch.
Thanks for dropping by, please come back soon as I would love to show you the cards we made in a couple of 1-2-1 classes I did last week.

Money Wallets & Product-based Classes

Hi everyone,

I want to talk to you today about my Product-based Classes and the Money Wallets I taught in a 1-2-1 I had today. I am busy trying to get my website with all the information I can as quickly as I can.  Thank you for you patience, it is still a work in progress, but hopefully you have enjoyed what you have seen so far. If you go to my Product-based Classes Page (under Classes) you will see the Timetable for the Brand New Classes starting in July. You will also see the projects you will be making in the July classes using the Stamp Set you will receive at the Class to take home with you. The Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set we will be using is included in the Class price, which means you can produce more gorgeous cards with your own stamp set when you get home all inspired after the class.

The following month, August will be using Build a Birthday Stamp Set! As it is one of the Brand New Stamp Sets, I have not yet bought mine so have not made the projects we will be making in the classes but you can see samples of projects from the Brand New Catalogue – out today!

So please go check out the Product-based Classes page and book those places soon as spaces are limited!

I had a lovely 1-2-1 class this morning with a lovely lady at her home.  She wanted to make a couple of Money Wallets so I made one as a sample using the Brand New In-Color Cardstock, marker pens, along with the absolutely gorgeous Bohemium DSP!  I also used one of my favourite Stamp sets from Last Year ‘In This Together’, although she chose to put something else on.

So here is the wallet I made (I can’t show you hers, lol but hope they like them).

I Went to Telford with some of my Team!

Last Friday and Saturday I went to a Stampin’Up! Regional Training event in Telford. Some of my amazing Team came with me and it was great fun, full of inspirational fellow Stampin’Up! Demonstrators, inspirational ideas and of course the Sneak Peak of the ‘All-New’ Stampin’Up! Catalogue, which comes out 2 June 2015!

On the Friday I met my Upliner, Michelle Last and other Team Leaders at Telford for Afternoon Tea and to talk about our Businesses, where we want to be in twelve months time, and lots of other inspirational chatter. Mind there was also alot of eating, cream cakes, the odd sandwich and lots of tea and coffee!

Here’s a Photo of us all!

Some Amazing and Inspirational Leaders!

We then went out for a lovely meal, which was a fitting end to a year filled with hard work, developing our Teams, giving support and having a great time crafting with our customers and Teams. Thanks to Michelle Last for organising this and as you can see from the Photo I had a gorgeous piece of Fillet Steak! The puddings were so huge we had one between the 7 of us! lol

Fillet Steak, Chips, Salad, oh and on top a huge slice of onion and half a tomato!

The following day (Saturday) was the Regional Training Day, and some of my Team travelled up together to spend the day with me and hopefully go away filling inspired! There were about 350 fellow Stampin’Up! Demonstrators there and you can imagine the buzz around the room as everyone swapped their swaps – this is a project that we all make lots of and swap with other Demonstrators, so we go home with lots of ideas for our classes or just for ourselves to make cards etc.

Here is my Swap:

I have produced a video on Youtube which shows you how to do the Brayering technique, so please click on this link and take a look.  Brayering Technique

 

We all had a fantastic time at Telford, watching demonstrations, listening to inspirationals talks about Stampin’Up! and their vision for their future as well as ours. You may be thinking ‘ooh a lot of business talk, not my cup of tea’, but you would be wrong! There was also alot of examples of cards and other projects that were made with some of the Brand New products. We also of course had ‘Prize Patrol’! This is such a fun time, where were all got a prize and others got more! Go check out my Gallery page for lots of photos of some of the projects we got to see.

You too could join me next year, or even come with me to Brussels in November for our Brand New looking Convention – OnStage Live! For more information please contact me and I can tell you all about what I do, what Stampin’Up! is and you could be browsing through the Brand New Catalogue that is out 2 June 2015!

Thanks for dropping by and look forward to hearing from you.

Welcome to my new Website!

Me, Sue

Me, Sue


Hiya,
I just want to welcome you to my brand new website and look forward to inspiring you to create and learn how to make some fantastic cards etc. I want to first of all thank Catherine Carroll for designing and building my website.

So, what are you going to see as you pop in and out of my website? Well, as you can see from I have a few pages. lol
Classes – You will find details about the types of classes I run, usually at Sue’s crafting place, but sometimes elsewhere (numbers dependent). There are descriptions of the different types of classes I run, where and cost, so keep an eye on that page.
Workshops – Is really the same as classes, but under there are details about my 1-2-1 classes, the sort of things you could do in those.
Tutorials – A place where you can see the information about the tutorials I give out at my classes. Once you purchase them, they will be emailed to you as a PDF. Linked to some of these will be youtube videos which again once you have purchased the tutorial you will have unlimited access to. Some tutorials are FREE as are some of the Youtube videos, so watch out for those too!
The Gallery page is full of the different cards/projects I have made and is linked to my Pinterest boards, so check those out for inspiration!
On Line Shop – Of course once you’ve been inspired, you’ll want to purchase the products I have used, so click on the Online Shop page and it will take you to my online shop. Place an order and it will be delivered direct to your door!
About Me – Last but not least, is the About Me page, which I suppose you should go to first, as it tells you a little about me and my business and what I do.

I hope you will keep popping back here and check out all the different pages, as I continue adding and building this website. Please be patient, I will get everything up here as quickly as I can, in between running all my classes and launching my new ones. In the meantime after taking this initial look and perhaps going to my Pinterest boards and Youtube videos, you like what you see and would like to join my classes, place an order or just want to know more about me and BB Card Designs, please drop me a comment. I would love to hear from you on what you think about my new website and if there is any technique or anything you would like to see on here.

Thanks for dropping by and please come back soon.
