3D projects, cards, Stampin' Up!


Another retired set that will be leaving us very soon is ‘Kinda Eclectic’.  I am a little sad about this one.  I must say I haven’t used it too much recently but I did use it a lot when it first came out.

This card was the Make And Take everyone made at the Catalogue launch back in 2014 when it was released. The original  post is  HERE.

These were the Thank You bags I made at that launch with the set. 🙂

This next card I was pleased how it turned.  I think it has been popular on Pinterest to as it has been repinned 1.4K times!

This card is one of my most recent makes with this set.  I only made these late last year for some customer cards.  You can see that post HERE.

This set is still available to buy but don’t wait long.  You can order it in store HERE.   Wood mount $49   Clear Mount $33.

Have a great weekend.  It looks like it could be a wet one here this weekend.  But not much time for crafting though.  (or maybe just a little …)




Catalogues, Stampin' Up!


Yes, Today is the day! The 2014 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue is live! YAY! I can’t wait to share with you the wonderful products we have: Great new stamp sets, Gorgeous new papers, fun new Dies, lovely new In Colors, Blendabilities and Project Life.  You will want it all!

You can view it Online HERE Now.  Even better why not get your own copy.  I can send one ANYWHERE in Australia.  


Yesterday I shared some of the displays at my Launch I held on Saturday.  I thought I would show you the card we did as a Make and Take today.  I CASED this card from Pinterest. This is using the Stamp Set ‘Kinda Eclectic’. You can see what is in this stamp set below. I think this will become a favourite in the catalogue.  This is using some of the new In Colors: Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey, with Very Vanilla.  The great thing too with this set is that the butterflies fit the Elegant and Bitty Butterfly punches.  I like the little touch of Gold Twine on the card too.



So go and check out the Catalogue now if you haven’t already done so or let me know and I will get one to you.
Have a Happy Day 🙂


I know I said I would  post about my swaps I received and this is the second post today and still no swap photos.  I am getting there but I just had to show you this card I made yesterday.  I was really excited about it.  This is using a stamp set coming out in the new Catalogue called ‘Kinda Eclectic”. We received this at Convention last week and I just had to play with it yesterday. P1120747

I cut a window from the Whisper White card.  It would be easy with the Square Framelits but I didn’t have them with me at our stamp day yesterday.  I cut the square out using my Stampin’ Trimmer. This piece I then embossed using the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder. The starburst image in the window is stamped with Baked Brown Sugar Ink.  The butterflies are stamped with Crisp Canteloupe.  It is great that these fit the current Butterfly Punches (the Elegant Punch and the Bitty Butterfly Punch)!!! The leaf image I stamped in Pistachio Pudding and cut out freehand.  The Birthday greeting is from Apothecary Art and stamped in Baked Brown Sugar. I snipped the ends of the greeting piece into banners.  A little bling goes a long way to finish it off.

Hope you like this.  I can see lots of uses with this set.  I will play again soon. OK, I will show you my swaps next post. 🙂
