BACK FROM MELBOURNE STAMPIN’ UP! ONSTAGE!

It’s been a big weekend.  I have just returned from the Stampin’ Up! Onstage event in Melbourne.  This is a fantastic time for Demonstrators as we meet up with old and new friends and see lots of inspiring projects … and see new products. 🙂  I can’t wait to share those with you soon.

While I sort out photos and swaps I thought I would just share a couple of personal highlights with you because you have followed me and cheered me on and on many occasions kept me creating. So THANK YOU each and every one of you. xx

You probably know that it is Stampin’ Up!’s 30th Birthday this year so this event was a big one celebrating the occasion.

Firstly, I got to attend Centrestage this time.  This event is for those demonstrators who are at Silver Elite title and above. I am so Thankful to have promoted to Silver Elite just a few months ago and I have been so excited to be able to attend it.

It was a fantastic night of lovely food and great conversations and some business discussions.  And of course treats. 🙂

At Onstage on the Saturday there was some amazing presentations shown from the Onstage Live event in Orlando as well as some from our event in person.  They were all so clever and lots of new ideas.  (PS If you love butterflies and flowers you will love the new Occasions catalogue. Just sayin’!). 😉

This is the table set up all neat and tidy before the masses enter and take over. Isn’t it a lovely presentation.  The box in the middle under the ’30’ had secret products in that we couldn’t open until we started making the projects.

The blue stack of boxes at the back held the gifts for each person.  It held the bag and some notebooks and a few other gifts. It is such a lovely gift box.

I was so excited to celebrate some milestones too this year so thought I would share some photos.

Thank you to my team and my customers for helping me get there.

I got to do 2 stage walks this year first celebrating my promotion to Silver Elite and the 2nd for my 10 year Anniversary.  It is always a special time so I was pretty excited.

It was a privilege to have 3 of my JEN’s INK team with me in Melbourne.  Of course we had to have the team photo around the big ’30’.

Thanks for indulging me with these.  Thanks for your part in my journey.  Even your visits to my blog keeps me creating and sharing with you.  SO THANKS AGAIN.  I am excited for more creating and sharing with you.

I will be back to share swaps and other projects shortly.

SNOWFLAKE SHOWCASE WEEK – BONUS DAY WITH AN ALL OCCASIONS CARD!

I have been sharing projects all this week with the Snowflake Showcase products.  Today while I am in Melbourne for the Stampin’ Up! Onstage event I thought I could squeeze in a little bonus project for you.

I shared a card a few days back that was for any occasion.  I love that these products can be used not just for Christmas and not just to make snowflakes.  So I thought today’s bonus card needed to be another all occasion card.

The Snowfall Thinlits can be used to make some pretty flowers.  I kept the flower simple on this card.  The “snowfall” image was stamped on the Rich Razzleberry card base for some background. It doesn’t have to be snow. 🙂 The paper strip is from the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The Old Olive card strip was embossed with the Basket Weave Embossing Folder.  I love how this layout turned out.  It was loosely based on a Freshly Made Sketches #310 sketch. 

You still have time to order these products.  BUT – this is a BIG BUT!  They are only available during November AND ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.

Here they are again and ordering details for you if you are in Australia.  Now my Aussie friends,  I know that being snowflakes it puts you off these as we don’t have a snowy, wintry Christmas BUT look what else you can make with them.

Here is all the details.

SNOWFLAKE SHOWCASE WEEK – DAY 5 + 12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS WEEK 6. WHAT A TREAT!

     

Two in One for you today.  It’s Friday which means I have a special project for you for our 12 Weeks of Christmas series.  And since it is the end of our Snowflake Showcase Week let’s use snowflakes for this project.  I do hope you like this.

I wanted to create a special Christmas Gift Tag/Ornament using the Snowflakes but keeping it simple so you can easily create a few of them.

To create the Snowflake Tag/Ornament

Cut the large snowflake from the Snowfall Thinlits from White Velvet Paper. Cut the next size down snowflake from Silver Glimmer Paper, the next size down from Tranquil Tide and one of the smaller ones from White Velvet Paper.  Layer them and adhere them together.  I used the Multipurpose Adhesive for that.

Cut two medium size circle from the Layering Circles Framelits from Tranquil Tide card.  Adhere the snowflake on to the front of the one of the circles.  Loop a length of the Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon adhere behind the Tranquil Tide Circle.  Adhere the 2nd circle behind that so the ribbon is sandwiched between the circles.  That last circle behind is optional but I think it gives a neater finish so you don’t see the ribbon at the back.

Have you liked these projects with the Snowflake Showcase??  Are these products something you would buy?

I did say a Week of projects.  Well … I am off to Stampin’ Up! Onstage this weekend.  SO, I am going to give you a bonus project tomorrow with these products to keep you going all weekend.  I will be back next week to tell you what I can.  I am so excited to be off to Melbourne.

Have a great weekend and if you are going to Onstage somewhere in the world have a great time.  By the way, these events are just for Demonstrators.  If you would love to go and you are not a Demonstrator then maybe you will just have to join right. It’s just another added bonus. 🙂

If you are in Australia you can join with me in my JEN’s INK team.  I have lots of hobby demonstrators if you just want the discount for yourself OR maybe you would like to get a little income and have some friends/family or new customers purchase from you. There is no hard selling as everyone loves the products. I show you the steps and help you whatever you want to achieve.  You can stop by my page at the top to ‘JOIN THE JEN’s INK TEAM’ and find out more.

Be sure to come back tomorrow for the bonus project.

SNOWFLAKE SHOWCASE WEEK – DAY 4!

Today I have another card for our Snowflake Showcase Week.  I realised that it is using Bermuda Bay again.  Sorry about that but isn’t it a nice snowflake-y colour.

This is a card we made in our class last week.  I wasn’t sure about it.  I thought it might be too simple but everyone loved it.  So I thought I would include this in our Showcase week.  Really it might be simple but with the gorgeous detail there doesn’t have to be much on a card.

The lovely swirly snowflake is cut with the White Velvet Paper and the large snowflake with the Silver Glimmer Paper.  I added a Silver Adhesive Rhinestone to the centre of it.  I added a couple of stamped snowflakes.  The sentiment is stamped in Basic Gray.  It’s a sweet sentiment but I wouldn’t wish a blizzard on anyone. 🙂

SNOWFLAKE SHOWCASE WEEK – DAY 3 – AND A VIDEO FOR WEDNESDAY’S WOW!

Day 3 of our Snowflake Showcase Week.  Half-way through.  Today’s card is simple really but I think effective – and they can turn out differently each time.

The background for this card is a Watercolour wash.  I have used Bermuda Bay and of course the Snow is Glistening stamp set and Snowfall Thinlits.

The large snowflake is cut from the White Velvet Paper. Have I told you how soft and furry it is?  So nice and adds such a lovely texture to your projects.  I have also used the Silver Glimmer Paper and the tiny snowflake is from the White Velvet Paper too.

Do you want to see how I have done the Watercolour Wash background?  Since it is a Wednesday and time for Wednesday’s WOW! #45 I thought I would combine the two.  How about that. 🙂

You can see the video below. (NB: If you receive the blog updates by email and the video hasn’t shown then click on the title at the top to go to the blog post and watch it there). 

I am just starting out more with videos.  They are not easy let me say … 🙂 I would love to know your thoughts and if you have any suggestions to improve them, please drop a comment and let me know.

How are you liking the Snowflake Showcase products?  Have you bought any yet?

Just a reminder what these products are as you couldn’t see them well in the video.

If you are in Australia you can order these now from me.  Remember these are only available in November AND only while supplies last, so don’t delay with them.

Order in store -> HERE.  Please use the Host Code: KGQKCBA4

OR email me to arrange an order.

Thanks for watching.  Now go and try that wash technique.

SNOWFLAKE SHOWCASE WEEK – DAY 2!

For Day 2 of our Snowflake Showcase Week I wanted to show that these products don’t need to just be for Christmas – and they don’t need to be snowflakes.  I love these products but I know that in our hot climate in Australia we don’t have snowflakes at Christmas so this suite might not be as appealing.

Here is today’s card you can create that is great for any occasion.

The background stamping on this is using Southern Serenade set.  You could use any background stamping.  I used the Snowfall Thinlits to create a pretty flower in Gorgeous Grape, Lemon Lime Twist and Pear Pizzazz card.  The sentiment from the Snow is Glistening stamp set is heat embossed in white and cut out with a small Framelit with the Bunch of Banners Framelits dies.

This is the Southern Serenade set if you haven’t noticed it much before.  I really haven’t used it enough lately. I particularly love the sentiments in it.

You can order this and any of the Snowflake Showcase products in my store now if you are in Australia.  Or you can contact me directly.

Order in store -> HERE.  Please use the Host Code: KGQKCBA4

Thanks for looking.  Be ready for Day 3 tomorrow.

SNOWFLAKE SHOWCASE WEEK – DAY 1!

This week I am featuring the Snowflake Showcase Suite.  I have had so much fun creating with these products.  They are absolutely gorgeous.  All the details and the delicate little snowflakes. are so pretty even if we don’t have snow here at Christmas.  You can create so much more with them though not just for Christmas.  I will be showing these ideas too.  So each day this week watch out for the projects in my Snowflake Showcase Week. 

Here is today’s projects.  Well it’s actually 2 cards for you in different colours.

This one is in Bermuda Bay.  I actually made this one a few weeks ago and we used it as the make in my team meeting.  You can’t tell but that gorgeous swirl is cut in the White Velvet Paper.  So soft and furry.  I do love it. The sentiment is stamped in Basic Gray.  I find that a little softer sometimes than stamping in the black.  The tiny snowflakes are stamped in Pool Party.

This version below is in Night of Navy with the small snowflakes stamped in Balmy Blue.  The sentiment on this one is stamped in the Memento Black.

Which colour do you like better?

This is the lovely products in the suite if you haven’t seen them yet.

12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 5 – TIMELESS TIDINGS HOLLY!

I have a relatively simple card for you today for Week 5 of our 12 Weeks of Christmas series. This is using the Timeless Tidings stamp set.

The card mat and stamped piece is actually White.  It does look Very Vanilla in the photo.  Lighting wasn’t great this morning.

The Holly was stamped on Thick Whisper White in Memento ink and coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  The piece was cut with one of the squares in the Layering Squares Framelits.  A Gold Foil Scallop square was cut with the scallop in the Layering Squares Framelits.

Of course it needed some loopy, loops of Copper Thread.  I don’t seem to make many cards without it do it. 🙂

The sentiment from the Timeless Tidings set is stamped in black.  The card base is Cherry Cobbler.

I have to say I wasn’t sure of this card and I am still sure.  What do you think?? I think it might be missing something.  Never mind.  I hope it inspires you to create a version of it.  Do share with me if you do.  I love to see what you create.

Here is the Timeless Tidings stamp set.  I love the sentiments on it.

You can find this set in my store now -> HERE.  Clear Mount $35.  Really it is not that expensive for all these lovely images.

Ordering online?  Head to the link just above. Please use the Host Code:  KGQKCBA4  Don’t forget don’t mark your order as anonymous as I can’t send you a Thank You gift.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend.
