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!

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.

For future online shopping, just go to my online shop from this blog and sign in with your email address and password you created when reserving your Stamparatus.  Always ensure Sue Hall is in the top right hand corner when placing your orders.  That way you will get my own personal thanks and gifts (if appropriate sales).  Dont forget to add the Hostess Code for that month’s Online Order, in order to receive a gift just from me for doing so (providing order is £20+).

Drop me a line with your email address as soon as you have yours, to let me know and once I have confirmation who has got them through me, I can release the VIP videos to you personally.

Heat Embossing, Vellum, Ribbon

Hi,

I had a great time last Thursday with a lovely lady who comes every Thursday for a 1-2-1 with me.  This week I taught her how to heat emboss on vellum and how to colour in.  The second card, she wanted to do a card using ribbon so I taught her how to stamp onto small pieces of card even when the stamp is larger than the card and how to attach the ribbon.

As you can see from the pictures below of the two cards we did, they were gorgeous and alot of techniques are shown.  I have also made a couple of videos showing how I made these cards, so click on the photo and it will take you to the video.  The video/pictures are also on the tutorial page for future reference should you wish to look at them again.

Thanks for dropping by.

Christmas Themed Workshop – Brilliant!

Hi,

Another Christmas Themed Workshop – Brilliant!  A Brilliant Christmas Themed Workshop last Friday which was so full the table was chaos! lol  What a brilliant morning, full of crafting, filled with lovely ‘crafty’ people and amazing projects (if I do say so myself hehe) to be made.

I absolutely love these Workshops, as ladies from all of my Group Classes as well as those who attend my 1-2-1’s have a chance to meet those from the groups they do not usually meet, and ‘gossip’! lol  Friday’s workshop was full-on but everyone had a brilliant time and all the projects I designed were loved.  There was so much glitter thrown around, you should have seen the room! lol.

Here are the projects that were made and underneath each one is a supply list.  If you wish to purchase any of the products, please click on the product, which will take you to my Online shop where you can place your order and have them delivered directly to your door, in time to make your own for Christmas!

Christmas Workshop 21 22 August

Hi! I hope you are all well and starting to think about Christmas! Yes I know some of you may not have had your Summer Holiday yet, lol, me included! However in the crafting world we have to plan ahead and get our Christmas workshops booked and planned well in advance!

I’ve already done two and they were full, and very well received, so you can tell there are some ‘insane’ crafters lol like me out there!

My next Christmas Themed Workshops are Friday 21 August and Saturday 22 August.  The Friday workshop is already full, but there are still spaces on the Saturday workshop. So why not take a look at the projects you will be making and go to the Christmas Themed Workshop Page to book your place for the Saturday workshop.  These are great fun, you make 4 lovely projects, all designed by me, mostly cards, but also gift tags and gift packaging which you get to make too. There’s a raffle too and everyone that joins me at the workshops, whether it’s just one or all of them, can join me in December for my Christmas Get together when the raffle will be drawn.  All the prizes are Stampin’Up! products so you know they are worth having and refreshments will be served during the get together.

If you don’t live close enough to attend my classes/workshops, but you would love to make the projects, please email me and I can look into doing them as an online workshop, along with videos and written tutorials for you to purchase.

So here’s the projects, I hope you like them and they inspire you to go book a space and join me on Saturday 22 August.

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.
