What weather time for Crafting and Paper Share

Hi,

How are you all doing?  So much for a heatwave for Bank Holiday weekend and this week so far! lol All we’ve had is overcast, rain and thunder!  Been very muggy at night too!

So imagine my joy when it gave me just the excuse I needed to stop de-cluttering my house ready for moving and actually come into my tiny craft area that I’ve managed to keep clear and make some beautiful cards with some gorgeous new products, as well as sort out some amazing Paper Shares, for you all to get your hands on!

Paper shares I hear you cry! lol What’s that?  lol reminds me of my little granddaughter, she says ‘what’s that nana?’ when she sees something new, lol I can hear her now!

Anyway, sorry getting distracted, lol  If you go to my Product Share page you can find out what this involves, then go to my Paper Share page to see the three paper shares I am offering NOW!

I am sure you will fall in love with all of the papers I am offering and will want to get your hands on them asap!  The deadline for ordering your share of the papers is 10 June 2018, so please do not delay, go check it out and place your order NOW!

Here are some gorgeous cards I made along with my friend Gill (we haven’t been able to craft together for ages) using some of the papers I am offering in my paper shares and some new products that are in our Brand New Catalogue (out 1 June 2018).

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I hope you like my latest creations and the paper shares are something that you would like to have! Come back after 1 June 2018 when I will have  all the new products I have used in these cards linked to my Online shop for you to order.

Anyone that has read right down to the bottom of this blog, places a £25+ order with me(via my online shop) using June’s Hostess Code, between 1 – 6 June, will get a £5 voucher towards their next order as well as a lovely FREE gift and card just from me.

Look forward to hearing from you soon!

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. These videos are in addition to the ones I will be releasing hopefully over weekend or early next week.  These VIP tutorial videos are exclusively for Customers reserving their Stamparatus through me.  When you click on my Reservation button, if you don’t have an account already with me, you will need to create one (check it says Sue Hall in the top right hand corner.  Please go to a previous post of mine entitled ‘FREE Shipping’,(unfortunately FREE Shipping is no longer available), which has screenshots showing you how to create an account. For this online reservation please note that once you have filled out the profile set up you will be taken directly to the Stamparatus Reservation window to reserve yours), please follow instructions.

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!

Fantastic Offers during October!

Hi,

October is the start of a brand New Year for Stampin’UP! and us Demonstrators.  I get so excited at this time of year as we start a fresh new stamping year, and to help us along the way Stampin’Up! have come up with some amazing offers!

The first one is ‘World Card Making Day’.  Now ‘World Card Making Day’ is officially 7 October, but we’ve decided that one day isn’t long enough lol so from 1-10 October, we have 12 yes 12 stamp sets with a massive 15% off!  Also the brilliant Whisper White and Very Vanilla Notecards/envelopes are also 15% off! WOW WOW WOW!!!!

That’s not all – yet another fantastic offer is:

BUY A FAST FUSE ADHESIVE AND GET 2 YES 2 REFILLS ABSOLUTELY FREE!  Can you believe this?  I love fast fuse adhesive, it’s strong, quick to use, so strong it makes making gift packaging like boxes so much easier and stronger! I’m sure once you get your hands on this fast fuse adhesive, it will become one of your ‘go to’ glues!  On top of that to get 2 refills absolutely FREE, you gotta order it today!

Here are the stamp sets that are included in the offer with links to my online shop for you to order today!  Remember they are only available until 10 October at this amazing 15% discounted price!  The fast fuse adhesive link is also below, so click on that to go to my online shop to order your adhesive and get the 2 refills absolutely FREE!!

The next offer, which we offered last year, was so popular we’ve decided to repeat it now!  Designer Series Paper (DSP) Sale!

BUY 3 PACKS OF DSP (from list below) AND CHOOSE ANOTHER PACK ABSOLUTELY FREE!

The papers are just amazing, most being double sided and either 12″ x 12″ or 6″ x 6″ packs.  This sale runs from 1-31 October, so don’t delay in purchasing or you may miss out!  It is such a popular offer, well worth ordering today!

Finally, fancy getting your hands on a FREE Stamp Set? ‘What do I have to do I hear you cry?’ lol  Well, host a party with me, get all your lovely friends/family to join you either in your own home or mine (if you don’t have room) lol, where I will come  and show you all how to make a beautiful card, as well as getting a lovely thank you gift for yourself for hosting the party.  Get your friends/family to purchase some lovely products – great time to have the party with all the great offers on the stamps and papers, and Christmas just around the corner!!  When your combined orders hit £250 you will get this gorgeous stamp set absolutely FREE!  Not only that you will get stampin’ rewards – more FREE products of your choosing – dependant on total sales as to how much you can get!   This stamp set is not available any other way, not in any of our catalogues and is a Host Promotion that runs only until 31 October, then it’s gone!

Christmas Quilt – What a Fun Afternoon!

Christmas Quilt – well I have had so much fun this afternoon with my friend Gill, playing with the New Christmas Quilt Stamp Set, matching Dies and Designer Series Paper!

When I first saw this suite I thought mmmmm it’s ok, but Oh my Gosh, it’s not mmmmmm – it’s AMAZING!!!!!  You’ve just gotta get your hands on it, the papers are amazing, they not only have lovely paper patterns for backgrounds, but they even have papers that can be cut out exactly with the Quilt Builder Framelit Dies!  This suite is NOT JUST for Quilters! It’s not even JUST FOR CHRISTMAS! Just take a look at the three cards we made this afternoon!

See what I mean?  We have a birthday one and two Christmas ones! All are gorgeous and so easy to make with the Quilted Christmas Suite.  Did you notice the gorgeous stitched felt Holly leaves and berries? How adorable are they? I love them and they are so well made!

Thanks to Alejandra Gomez for her inspiration.

For all the products I’ve used and everything else that is in the Quilted Christmas Suite check out the new Seasonal Catalogue and go to my Online shop to buy them! You won’t be disappointed!

Ready For Christmas!

Ready for Christmas! What! I hear you say! I’ve only just got back from my Cruise and have had to put my Christmas Cardmaking Hat on for my LAST Monthly Class this weekend!  I thought I would go out with a bang and have spent all day today creating a most amazing Card! Yes, I know it’s Christmas themed, but once you’ve learnt the technique you can use it for any type of Card – birthday, Anniversary, Wedding, the list is endless! lol

So here is the Card we will be making this weekend. I’ve called it a ‘Pulley Card’, as you pull on a tab and the little dog gets pulled up into the night sky to reveal a very apt saying as it goes!

Isn’t it fun?  It took a lot of playing around and I am exhausted but so chuffed with it! I know one fellow Demonstrator who will love the little doggy! lol

Drop back next week when I will put a table of products used to make this beautiful card.

Let me know what you think, by leaving a comment.

August Class Projects

Hi,

I held my penultimate classes this weekend and they were great fun if not emotional.

As from October I will no longer be running my monthly classes at Sue’s Crafting Place, Bishops Cleeve but will be doing online videos/tutorials so I can reach a wider audience.  My hubby and I are also starting a new adventure together with our family so this seems the best time to make changes to my business.  I hope you will continue to support me and may be those of you who couldn’t come to my monthly classes will now be able to participate!

Here are the projects we made this month, I hope you like them and as ever if you want to order the products click on the various products which will take you to my online shop.  Remember spend £30+ with me and allow me to contact you and you will get unlimited access to the videos for these projects and the PDF tutorial will be emailed to you once the order has gone through.  Don’t forget to use the August Hostess Code in order to receive a FREE gift just from me!

My inspiration this month came from Dawn Griffith, a truly inspirational lady and fellow Demonstrator. Click on the two links below to see her projects.

May Hostess Code and this months class

Hi,

Yes I know I’m running a little late with issuing the May Hostess Code! lol  What can I say, but I’ve been so busy playing with some of the amazing pre-order us lucky Demonstrators get to order before the new Catalogue is released in June!  You are going to be amazed at how fantastic this new Annual Catalogue is! So many beautiful new stamp sets, all NEW Designer Series Papers which are to die for! On top of that there’s the new ribbons, new embellishments – oh and of course this year we have 5 yes 5 brand new In-Colors!  You have got to see them! I even bought a new dress which has matching flower colours to the new Lemon/lime Twist! lol

So why not place an order with me today from the retiring Catalogues to ensure you get a copy of the Brand New Catalogue when it’s released on 1 June! I will personally post one to you along with a bespoke card showcasing some of the gorgeous DSP and one of the New In-colors, along with a very useful bookmark again showing all the new In-colors, so you can mark your favourite page of stamps etc!  Remember to use the New Hostess Code (find it on my right side bar) and you will also receive a FREE gift from me (may even be some of the new Ribbon or embellishments!).

This months class is a small affair as alot of people are away or busy, so I have decided to make a more technical card – A Pivot Twist Card!  I made one of these months ago before they became the latest trend, but because it can take longer than some of my cards to make in a class, I have not been able to teach this one.

However as I say I only have one class of four coming on Saturday, so I thought now is a great opportunity to showcase the card!  Thanks goes to both  Tuppence coloured (here’s a link to her blog Tuppence Coloured) for her inspiration as well as Frances Martin (here’s a link to her Frances Martin) for help with making the pivot mechanism easier to teach).  I have written a tutorial and made a gorgeous card which I am looking forward to teaching tomorrow.

If you would like to get your hands on the tutorial so you can make this on-trend and amazing Pivot twist Card, then place an order (£20+) with me via my online shop using the new Hostess Code (M4S6FNBU).  As soon as I have received confirmation of your order, I will email you your Tutorial.  If you would like a Copy of the Brand New Catalogue, once you have placed your order, email me with your full details, including your postal address and I will post one out to you as soon as they are available.

I am also sorting out all the gorgeous new Ribbon and Dsp ready for you to get your hands on a Share of them all.  So if you fancy having a share of them, please email me with your details so I can let you know when they are ready to purchase.  Check back here in the next couple of weeks for more details.

Below are the products I used to make this gorgeous Pivot/twist Card.
