CATALOGUE SHOWCASE EVENTS!

I had my 2018 Catalogue Showcase over the weekend.  I still have one more to go tomorrow. I thought I would show you just some photos from it.

With all the new changes I wanted to feature many of the new colours.

Below is a display with some new products. I will show more of these cards in later posts.

Some Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut paper samples. I have been sharing some of these samples recently. (some things get a little messy over the time with lots of touching and feeling.  It’s nice everyone enjoys them).

Some serious concentration from one of the groups while they create and study the catalogue. (They were having fun).

Tomorrow I will show you the projects we made.

SWEET SUGARPLUM DAISY!

Another Daisy Delight card for you today.  This one was CASED again (from Anne’s blog HERE).  Time was running out to get my samples made for the Craft Show.

This was my version. I made a few changes to the original.

I like how some of the other flowers from the set are used.  For my card I matted the white on black and the base is Sweet Sugarplum.  I stamped and punched out 2 Daisy flowers in Sweet Sugarplum.  I like the fuller flower.

Along the bottom I stamped the little stems and flower heads.  I was a bit worried how they would line up but really that is they style and it doesn’t matter if they are a little off-set.  I have sponged Pear Pizzazz (I am pretty sure it was) along the bottom and up into the flowers.  I like the softness it brings.

Have you got this set yet?  I have to say I really didn’t need this at first.  I have lots of flower stamps. Then I just bought the punch because you know, I saw some great cards with it. But….Well it’s great having the punch but there are so many options to the flowers. So I had to buy the stamp set then. Don’t be a silly nong like me (an Aussie term for being a twit or an idiot).  Get the bundle straight up and save 10%.

Here is the Daisy Delight Bundle for you if you haven’t already checked it out.

If you are in Australia you can buy the bundle (don’t resort to just the punch!!) by contacting me directly or see it in my store HERE now for $54.75 in Photopolymer.  Please use the Host Code: YN7BVYYQ

ALSO, I always seem to neglect to tell people that you can collect one punch out on my VIS (Very Important Stamper) Loyalty card for every $50 order.  Once you collect 10 you get free products up to the value of $24.95.

Thanks for visiting today.  I hope your weekend is going awesome.

See you again tomorrow,

Jenny

CAROLS OF CHRISTMAS – DAY 3!

 

DAY 3

This card was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest using a different Christmas set.  I like the idea of the “negative” cut trees.  Check this out!!! The Designer Series Paper is from the Delightful Daisy DSP.  It’s not even a Christmas paper!  It looks like falling snow though doesn’t it.  🙂  The other trees are cut from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.

The sentiment on this card is from the Holly, Berry Happiness set.  Such a nice sentiment.  It is stamped in Smoky Slate.  Sometimes I like stamping in the grey.  It is just a little softer.

CAROLS OF CHRISTMAS

Order the Carols of Christmas this week and receive double Loyalty points – and receive a small gift to say Thanks too. 🙂

FAIR PROJECTS UPDATE – PART 2!!

Did you catch the last post about some cute projects I shared from my fairs last week?? If you didn’t then you can click on the link just above “Fair Projects Update”.  First though, read up on some more projects I have to share.

These Easel Calendars were very popular at all 3 events which was interesting.   There are a number of different tutorials on Pinterest to make your own which is where I found instructions to make these.  They are very easy to make.

Here they are.

Here are some Magnet Calendars I made also.

I used up lots of retired papers again.  They were all different and very easy to make.

Now for some Gift Card Holders. The tutorial for these can be found HERE.  I kept mine fairly simple.

P1170698

The Wine Bottle Tags I made I have already shared.  If you missed them you can find them in this post HERE but I will show you the photos below. They were very popular too.  They are a nice way to dress up a bottle of wine.

CATALOGUE LAUNCH REVIEW!

I thought I would share some of the things from my launch on the weekend.  It was such a fun time and I am sorry if you couldn’t make it. 🙂

Firstly, I have to show you my butterfly wall.  It is a bit hard to photograph.  The lighting is not the best.  It is a bit overcast today when I took these photos.

P1160845

I will show you some close-ups. I have used the Butterflies Thinlets and the cute new Incolor Blossom Accents.

P1160830

P1160832

P1160848

These are some of the treat bags I made for my lovely guests.  Sorry I didn’t take photos of all the flower colours.  These were last minute things as my order didn’t arrive until the 11th hour. The glue was still drying when the first guests arrived 🙂

I used the large Cello bags. I added some of the sheets from the ‘Cherry on Top’ DSP stacks and added a doily.  I cut some Balloons and banners with the Balloon Framelits and added a chocolate treat and some post-it notes.

P1160822

It is hard to tell in the photo but I ran the bag through the Big Shot with the Boho Chic Embossing Folder.

P1160866

Here is a close-up of the pegs for the bags.  I punched out a flower with the Petite Petals Punch and adhered a flower onto it with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  This was then adhered to a little peg.  It was a simple, cute idea.  I got the idea from a lovely friend of mine 🙂

P1160877

I thought I would share the Colour Comparison chart for the new Incolors.  It’s a good way to see how they fit in with other current colours.  (Once again sorry about the lighting!  I really have to do something about this). 🙂

P1160833

Next post I will show you the Make and Takes we did.  I think that is enough photos for one day. 🙂

12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 10!!

Latte 12 weeks Header

Week 10 of our 12 Weeks of Christmas.  That can only mean that Christmas is getting very close – which is a scary thought!  Today I bring you another project in our 12 Weeks of Christmas series.  I hope you like this project.

Today I bring you a Tag A Bag Gift Box and matching card.  

P1150415

When you are looking for gift packaging ideas Stampin’ Up! offer an assortment of bags and boxes that with some simple decorating they can make your gift very special.  To hold some yummy treats you can’t go past the Tag A Bag Gift Boxes.  These assemble very quickly without any adhesive at all.  These boxes can be found on p 201 of the Stampin Up! Catalogue and come in a pack of 8 for $11.95.  Great value!!

Here is the box for you.

P1150420

For this I have punched a strip of Real Red Cardstock with the Confetti Stars Border Punch, wrapped around a strip of the Nordic Noel DSP and tied around some Real Red Satin Ribbon.  I have the tutorial below. The cute tag is simply a number of stars cut with the Stars Framelits from Gold Foil, Garden Green and Real Red.  In the centre of the smallest star I added a single Gold sequin and added a small pearl coloured with the “red” colour in the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities pack.  I added a length of the Gold Sequin Trim behind the star. The greeting is from Petite Pairs and cut using the Bitty Banners Framelits.

I made a matching card to go with the box.

P1150417

I cut a large star from the Whisper White card and adhered some of the same Nordic Noel DSP behind it.  Then layered stars in Gold Foil, Garden Green and Real Red to match the box although these were slightly smaller.  The smaller red star is punched from the Itty Bitty Accents punch set.  I added a single Gold sequin and coloured Adhesive Pearl to this too. The greeting is from the Bright and Beautiful set stamped in Real Red.  I wrapped around some Real Red Satin Ribbon and added a bow separately.  So much easier to add the bow separately.  It sits so much better.  I always have a tussle with the card and the ribbon. 😉  I finished it off with some single Gold sequins around the card.

TAG A BAG BOX TUTORIAL

Cut cardstock to measure 9.5cm x 28cm (3 ¾” x 11”). Punch along both edges with the Confetti Stars Border Punch. 

P1150400

Cut DSP 3.5cm x 28cm (1 3/8” x 11”). Adhere slong the centre of the punched strip.

Run adhesive along the back of your card strip with adhesive of your choice.  I used Fast Fuse. 

Place the middle of your card strip at the centre of the top surface on the Acetate sleeve for the box and adhere down.  Wrap the cardstock around the sleeve adhering each side as you go.  TIP: When you wrap the cardstock around each side run the Bone Folder along the edge to give a crisper fold. Check it out  in the photo how I have done it.

P1150402

Adhere the ends together at the base of the box.

Wrap your Red Satin Ribbon around the box and tie in a bow.  Create a tag of your choice to finish.

I am sure you could think of a few friends/workmates that you could whip up a few of these for?? Fill them with some chocolates, cookies even a small gift.  Decorate them as you like.

Of course, as with our past 12 Weeks of Christmas projects we have a special bundle for you and receive 10% off.

Tag A Bag Boxes   (130927)                                   $11.95
