Stamparatus Wow!

As promised in my post the other day, I now have the Stamparatus in my hands, and have been having so much fun using it and making videos showcasing it.

Here’s the moment I got my Stamparatus!

lol Can you tell I was oh so excited! lol  The excitement hasn’t worn off either it’s as good as I hoped it would and in fact it’s even better!  Did you see how I absolutely loved the fact we have both inches and centimetres in the rulers lol. I know that may sound sad to some of you but hey I like my inches! lol

After opening up and revealing my Stamparatus and trying to calm myself down, I then had a go at stamping with it.  As you will see in this next video, I decided to compare how I used to do 2 step stamping using my Stamp-a-ma-jig with doing it using the Stamparatus!  Now this is my own opinion but I think once you have seen the video you will agree with me it’s fantastic, and well worth having!

I found it was so easy to use straightaway.  One thing I did find I was doing wrong and you will see this in the video (no cover ups lol) was when doing the second step, I lined the second stamp up using the edge of the rubber mount instead of the picture to ensure it lined up properly.  Watch the video to see how I got round it and the slight error lol.

So I think you will agree the Stamparatus is a Tool that you will use time and time again!  If you haven’t reserved yours do it now! Click on my ‘Reserve yours Today’ button to reserve yours and be ready to receive it after 19 March!  You’ve only got a few more hours to reserve yours, so don’t delay!

Come back soon to see how I got on making a gorgeous card using the Cake Soiree Stamp set that I used in the second video.  I will show you how easy it was to stamp multiple images at once, and how to stamp them multiple times down a piece of cardstock, using the ‘Hinge’ method.  Also how easy it is, time saving and in my opinion saving on wastage of cardstock and therefore keeping more money in your pocket!

‘Til next time, thanks for dropping by.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

To kick off the launch of this catalogue I am offering you the chance to get your hands on some brand new products from the Sweet Soiree Suite!  I fell in love with this suite the moment I saw it at Onstage back in November!  All of the products in this suite are to die for, and you can have a share of the Sweet Soiree Speciality Designer Series Paper, some Berry Burst Metallic-Edge Ribbon, Silver Baker’s Twine, some Silver Mini Gable Boxes, which are to die for!  Also some Sweet Soiree Cardstock (3 colours), a share of the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit – so much in here and all gorgeous!  Finally but by no means least, some Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie-crinkle cut shredded paper in 3 colours!

The pictures above shows you each of the products included in the product share.  Just look at the paper, there is silver foil accents to give you gorgeous texture, the shreddie paper is perfect for putting inside the Mini Silver Gable Gift Boxes, tied up with the beautiful Berry Burst metallic-Edged Ribbon.  Why not make a lovely gift tag and attach it with the Silver Baker’s Twine?

The video below shows you what you will be getting in the product share.

I am sure you will fall in love with this Suite and will want to get your hands on the product share.

Each Product Share costs just £16 if you are able to collect it  or £20 for me to post it securely and signed for to ensure it gets to you safely.  Also, if this is the first time you have bought a share from me, you will also receive a FREE A4 Rigid Plastic Box to keep this and all the other Product Shares you buy!  If you’ve bought product shares from me before you will already have your box and so future shares will be sent to you securely, well packaged to ensure they get to you safely and in one piece!

Go to my ‘Product Share’ Page http://bbcarddesigns.co.uk/product-shares/ and read all about what I am offering, which Suite(s) I will be offering a share of and how you can get your hands on your very own share!  Please fill out the comment form which you will find on my product share page (click on link above to go there).

End of Year Sales Event, Stamparatus Reserve today!

Hi,

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends?  Hubby and I had a wonderful time with our grown up children and our gorgeous granddaughter!  I love getting together with my lovely family, relaxing, eating and catching up.  Well not much relaxing with granddaughter lol but oh so worth it!

Anyway I just wanted to drop by and remind you that we still have the End of Year Sales Event going on – but only while stocks last or until 2 January 2018.  Please click on the pictures below which will open up the  Retiring Favourites and Discounted products from the End of Year Sales Event, on my online shop, and place that order today! Products are flying off the shelves so you don’t want to be disappointed do you!  One of my lovely ladies wanted an embossing folder and unfortunately, she thought she’d wait a couple of days, but was too late! I was so disappointed for her and she was really upset.  So go check them out now!

Retiring Favourites

 

 

 

Discounted

The other reminder is you only have until 31 December to reserve your Stamparatus!

Doesn’t it look fun?  Stampin’Up! have decided it was so popular when the first reservation window was opened that instead of staggering the reservation windows they have left this last window of opportunity open just until 31 December.  This means the sooner you reserve yours the sooner you will get yours after 19 March 2018!  Click on my ‘RESERVE YOURS TODAY’  button on my right hand side bar and reserve yours today!  You won’t want to miss out!  Once 31 December has past you won’t be able to reserve one again!  This is your last opportunity to get one in your hands early!

I was lucky enough to be part of the L2L Team that collaborated with Stampin’Up! in designing, testing etc this product, so I was able to pre-order mine and will be getting mine hopefully tomorrow! YEYE!!!!  I can’t wait, I am so excited to get my hands on this amazing product. I just know it’s gonna give me a new way of stamping, make it so much more enjoyable even though it is already, but this apparatus is gonna help me do the 2 or 3 step stamping much easier and quicker and more accurately than when I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig!

I will be making some video showing you how to use the Stamparatus, so if you haven’t reserved yours yet, do it today, so you can see the videos I do.  If you’re just not sure if you will want it or need it – I can’t see why you would think that, but hey, I understand, lol, why not watch my videos in a couple of days to see what I do with it, then reserve yours before 31 December!

Below is a video from Stampin’Up! giving you 5 reasons why you should own a Stamparatus:

I’m sure once you’ve watched this video from Stampin’Up! you’ll be itching to get your hands on it.  IF THAT WASN’T ENOUGH OF A REASON OR 5 LOL WHY YOU SHOULD RESERVE YOURS THROUGH ME, once you’ve received yours, you will be able to access some VIP tutorial I will be making especially for you to help you get started and make some amazing cards.

Next Gift – Mini Treat Bag to hold Pendant

Hi,

Hope you enjoyed seeing the first gift I made my lovely ladies – the Pizza box pop up calendar, post it & pen holder.  This is the second gift I gave them.  The pendant was made by my lovely hubby, Mike, who loves making jewellery.  He asked if he could make something for each of my ladies to thank them too for their support to me and giving my life purpose. lol

So he made the pendant and I made the Mini Treat Bag to put it in.  (Think I got the easier deal lol)

Here are the measurements and products I used to make the mini treat bag:

MINI TREAT BAG THINLIT DIES

BIG SHOT

NATURALLY ECLECTIC DSP 6″ X 12″

EVERYDAY LABEL PUNCH

1x GOLD BINDER CLIP

4″ RIBBON (oops retired but can use any thin current ribbon)

TEAR N TAPE ADHESIVE or FAST FUSE or SNAIL

SILICONE MAT

Below is a video that shows you how to make the mini treat bag, and under that are images of all the products used, which, when clicked on will take you to my online shop to place your order.

These Mini Treat Bag Thinlit Dies are a great buy! Use them to make gorgeous Christmas Gift bags, using some of our lovely Christmas DSPs.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this gift, pop back again tomorrow for the third gift!

Thanks for dropping by.

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!
