LAUNCHING THE NEW OCCASIONS CATALOGUE!

On Saturday I had my Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Launch.  I know that the catalogue has been around for nearly a month but with our School Holidays on it is a bit hard to get people together.  So it was Launch day on Saturday.  It was fun!  Thanks to all the lovely ladies who came and it was nice to see some new faces and some regular ladies too.

So what did we do?? Well, it was a party of course.  With all the fun party products in the catalogue, why wouldn’t we.  There was balloons and cake and treat bags for everyone. You know I got so busy and I forgot to take photos of everything. 😦  I will share what we did though.

I can show you the Treat Bags I made.  I was inspired by a couple of projects I had seen recently on Pinterest and shared by Stampin’ Up! too.

treat bags

These are 2 versions of them.  I have used some lunch bags and cut part way down the front and folded down the flap.  I added a strip of the ‘It’s My Party’ DSP and then cut a strip of card with the star Thinlets from the Mini Treat Bags.  The cake from ‘Party Wishes’ was stamped on white card and then it was cut with a mid-size Circle Thinlets. I added a punched flower from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch pack, a Dot from the ‘It’s My Party’ Enamel Dots pack and finished off with a bow from either the Melon Mambo or Mint Macaron Baker’s Twine.  The greeting from ‘Party Wishes’ was stamped down the bottom of the bag.

I filled the bag with some 6″x6″ pieces of the ‘It’s My Party’ DSP stack and a square of the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper.  Of course there may have been some chocolate and other treats in there too. 😉

I had some different products set up to have a test run like the ‘Bloomin’ Heart Thinlets Die and Die Brush and the Confetti Embossing Folder and ‘Wink of Stella’ Brush. All good fun too.

Now for the Make and Take. I can’t take credit for these cards.  I CASED them from Janet HERE.  I loved how you can use the Rose Garden Thinlets as a mask. Everyone loved the idea too and started thinking of other dies that they could do this with.

sponged rose

For this card we cut the rose and leaves out from some Whisper White card. Then placing it on to a Whisper White card mat carefully sponge the Watermelon Wonder ink over the rose adding more ink to the centre.  Sponge the leaves with Mint Macaron. It doesn’t matter if the ink merges with each other or goes out of the lines.  It’s all part of the effect. We then embossed some dots in gold from ‘Timeless Textures’ and heat embossed the greeting from ‘Rose Wonder’ in gold too. The card piece was adhered to a Mint Macaron card base and the greeting was raised up with dimensionals.

I showed everyone then how to use the mask you have sponged. Don’t waste it, you can create another card. I have used ‘Timeless Textures’ again stamping in Sahara Sand on white card.  The greeting was stamped in black, cut with the framelit and sponged around the edge. This was all adhered to a card base in Watermelon Wonder.

Here they are together.  A nice matching pair.

YOU’RE SO SWEET TREAT BAG AND CARD!

Recently I showed you a card made with the ‘You’re So sweet’ set.  If you missed that just pop back 2 posts.  Today I have a gift bag and card I made with the set.

I saw the Treat Bag on Pinterest initially and just changed it a little.  The paper is from the paper stack ‘Cherry On Top’.  I made the bag with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets.  The little star is in the set which I could cut inside the stamped star.  How neat!!  I just added a star strip cut with the star die in the set in Crushed Curry and a DSP banner.  The greeting label is cut with of the little dies in the Thinlets set too.

Then I made a card. Using some more of the ‘Cherry On Top’ Paper Stack I added a strip down the side of the Cucumber Crush base card.  I stamped the greeting banner from the ‘You’re So Sweet’ set first on Crushed Curry in Crushed Curry and then on Whisper White in Bermuda Bay.  I cut the white one out with the banner framelit in the Treat Bag Thinlets and cut the Crushed Curry one out by hand.  It needed something else under the banner so I cut a strip of Watermelon Wonder card and flagged the ends.

See the cute balloons?? I made them with the 1″ circle punch and the owl punch.  I punched out the bottom part of the owl and trimmed it and adhered that piece under the punched circle.  I added some White Baker’s Twine underneath.  Cute hey!! Sorry I think so anyway 🙂

I think they  make a cute gift set what do you reckon?

PAINTED BLOOMS MINI TREAT BAG!

I am sure you have seen the little treat bags around the internet made with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets.  Now I will be honest, I wasn’t going to get this framelite set.  I can make up little bags myself- can’t I??? But I saw lots of cute versions and realised you get so many cute little “bits”.  How cool! So OK, I had to get it 🙂

Here is my cute little bag I made a couple of weeks ago.  I made a cute envelope using the bag die from the gorgeous Painted Blooms DSP.  This is such BEAUTIFUL paper.  Have you got it yet? I made a tag to fit inside it. The sentiment used here is from the Sale-A-Bration set ‘Simply Wonderful’.  I coloured the flower from the set using the Markers.  Wouldn’t this be lovely to give to someone special! I love that Blackberry Bliss colour.

Now this die set is not just limited to little gift bags.  You can enlarge it and make larger bags or make gift boxes.  I have played around a little doing this so I will have to show you soon.

Here is the Thinlet set for you to see all the “bits”.
