Subscribe to my Website

Hi,

I am in the process of moving my business in a new direction, and I would love to have you all subscribe to my blog so that you don’t miss my gorgeous projects and can follow me and join me in my new venture!

As many of you know, I ran for many many years classes in my own home with a lot of absolutely amazing ladies, who came every month and made my classes an absolute joy!  I began to find that my classes were becoming so big and I was needing to do more and more classes each month, which in turn meant I had a lot more prepping to do for all the classes.  I kept getting more enquiries about joining my classes, so after a lot of thought and soul searching, I made the ?brave? lol decision that perhaps it was time to make some changes in my business and do it online!  I know every single lady from my classes was upset and didn’t want me to stop running the classes at my home, but I knew it was time for me to make changes.

So in the coming months you will see this blog start to change, but my name BB Card Designs will still be ‘me’ lol.  The picture above will be prominent on all my social media sites – youtube, pinterest, facebook, twitter, instagram, so if you see either or both you will know it’s still lil ole me! lol.

If you have already subscribed to this blog brilliant, but if you have subscribed but may be are not receiving notifications when I have put a new post up, it may be that you didn’t complete the 2-steps to subscribing.

Firstly, under the word ‘subscribe’ on my side bar there is a box.  Please fill in your email address and click submit.  You will then be sent an email to that address you entered, which you must open and click on the link within that email so that your subscription is then activated!  lol Honest it’s not complicated, lol.  You will then be told your subscription was successful, but I promise you I will not be bombarding you with spam, just honest to goodness amazing projects, products etc to get you crafting!

Now, again many of you know I have a Youtube Channel, well actually I have two! lol.  I noticed the other day, that I used to upload my videos I made to Sue Hall on youtube and I have hundreds of followers on there.  Now however, I upload them to BB Card Designs Channel, because my business is so big now I don’t feel I need to be known so much as Sue Hall lol.  Only problem is I only have about 8 followers to my BB Card Designs! boo hoo! lol.  Could I ask you, pretty please, if you can check which youtube channel you subscribed to in order to watch my videos and if it was Sue Hall, could you subscribe to BB Card Designs too?  That way, you will see ALL my videos, regardless of when I put them up!

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!

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!

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!

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.
