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!

Fairy Celebration!

Hi,

It’s been a few weeks, sorry, been soooo busy since my BOGOF/make n take day!

Suffice to say there are still alot of SU products I have for sale despite the BOGOF lol so get in touch if you are interested to see what is left.

However, FAIRY CELEBRATION! What’s that about you ask?

Well, SU have brought out a brand new stamp set called ‘Fairy Celebration’ and oh my goodness it is gorgeous!  It was just the stamp I needed to make a card for a lovely lady who comes to my classes and is also a great friend, who recently had an operation.

Here’s the card I made.  It’s a Shaker card, and I used Dazzling Diamond Glitter for the ‘fairy dust’.  Looks like she walking down into it doesn’t it?

Sale-a-bration is Over, my Team is awesome!

Well that’s Sale-a-bration over for another year! It has been such fun showcasing all the wonderful FREE products my customers and Class members had the chance to get.

Stampin’Up! always do a challenge for us Demonstrators during SAB and this year was no exception.  However, I decided to give my Team a challenge from me, just to ‘spice’ things up a bit! lol  Well they rose to the challenge and I am so impressed with them.

First of all any of my Downliners that had sales of £250+ during SAB I rewarded them with a £15 voucher to spend on SU Products through me. I was chuffed to bit that Kim Renn, Jilly Rickards, Karen Nash and Jane Drake all achieved this.

For any of my Downliners that Recruited during SAB and, that new recruit spent £75+ I rewarded them with a £25 voucher to spend on SU Products through me.  Well, 2 amazing Downliners, Jilly Rickards and Karen Nash both achieved this!  How amazing is that, well done ladies!

Finally for the Downliner that got the Highest Sales during SAB I made a lovely Photo Framed Gift, which I hope she will put on her wall to inspire her.  She also got a certificate and will spend a half day crafting with me. Huge congratulations Karen, who managed sales of £1322.54 (1468.47 CSV)!  That is truly an amazing amount of sales and I am so proud of her.

For myself, I recruited 5 new Downliners and I hope they will be inspired by the rest of the Team through the coming months and will gain in confidence and enjoy their time as Demonstrators and have fun being part of my Team.

If you fancy joining me and my Team you can, just click on the ‘Join Me’ button at the top of this website, or get in touch with me direct to discuss it.  I am always available if any of my Team need advice or just a bit of a confidence boost, inspiration, whether they are Hobby Demonstrators or running their own businesses and teams of their own.  I take my job of mentoring very seriously and I love watching everyone in my Team grow.

I presented my amazing Downliners with their certificates/gift at our team meeting on Friday 8 April.  I also gave everyone at our Team meeting their Team Pin and a welcome Card. Thanks to my lovely hubby Mike, who made the Pins for me!

I am off to Onstage Local in a weeks’ time, and some of my Team are coming with me which is so exciting!  When I get back I will post what we got up to and show you all the FREEBIES we got!

Squash Book Tutorial

Hi,

Squash Books! Ever fancied making one and never knew how? Well, now you can, as I have made one (thanks to maymaymadeitcraft for her inspiration) and have written a Tutorial and done a video for you!

number of years squash book
I went to a Pinkies Training in Croughton recently, where fellow Pinkies Demonstrators meet up, and among other amazing activities we do throughout the day, we make Swaps showcasing a project that we have enjoyed making and swap it with our fellow Demonstrators.  My swap was a Squash Book, and I was thrilled that so many loved it and was asked if I would make a video.

 

number of years squash book open
So I thought I would share with you the Squash Book I made, along with the list of Supplies needed to make one yourselves.  Included in the Supply List is my Tutorial which you are welcome to use, but please give me credit! lol. I loved making this squash book and in fact one of my customers that comes every week for a 1-2-1 lesson, asked if I could show her how to make one so she could give it to someone special. I hope you like it too and have a go.
Click on each product to place an order and click on ‘supply list’ at the bottom of the tiled products to get access to the tutorial.

Click on supply List to access the Tutorial and to access the link to the Youtube video.

 Thanks and look forward to seeing your squash books.
