It’s Wednesday! And we have another edition of Wednesday’s WOW! #39 for you today I thought it would be good to check out this new little gadget in the catalogue – The Take your Pick Tool.  I keep calling it the Pick It tool because I can never remember the name. LOL!

This neat little Multi-purpose pick-up tool makes picking up sequins and other smaller embellishments so much easier.  It contains putty in the end and this is used to pick up the item and place it on your project.  BUT, there is more to this tool.  It has some handy-dandy little tool attachments to use in other areas of your creating.  Check out the video to see.

Pretty clever hey!  What about those neat little attachments?  You can get replacement putty too when you are out of it.

This Take Your Pick tool can be found on p30 of the Holiday catalogue OR you can see it in my store now -> HERE – and throw one in with your next order.

If you choose to order through me this week please use the HOST CODE: ME4VSE3W     I appreciate your orders and I usually send a little Thanks out your way so please be sure not to mark your details as ‘anonymous’ to the order otherwise I won’t know where to send a gift to you. 

Thanks for visiting me today,

Last day for the Blended Seasons Bundle or you can choose to order the Blended Seasons Stamp set or the Stitched Seasons Framelits separately.  I love the double stitched framelits. Don’t forget the new assortment of Watercolor Pencils too.  They are such pretty colours.

See all these in store -> HERE and you can order from there directly too.  If you order please use the Host Code: 9EUYZ6RX

Thanks for your orders and be sure to add your details so I can send a little Thank You gift your way.



By now you would have seen quite a bit of the Blended Seasons Bundle around different blogs and Pinterest.  It is a beautiful bundle.  I am just sad that it is only around for this month.  It is so versatile. So today for Wednesday’s WOW! #35 I thought we would take a closer look at it.

Here is the Blended Seasons stamp set and the matching Stitched Seasons Framelits.

How many different occasions can you see using this set for? 

Birthday – The sentiments are fitting for a birthday.  The flowers come up beautifully coloured with whatever your choice of medium whether it is Watercolor Pencils, Stampin’ Blends or Inkpads and Aquapainter.  You could also use the ‘husk’ type image or the leaves for a great male card.

Congratulations/All the Best – Try colouring the flowers for this occasion too.  The leaves are great as well.

Wedding – Those sweet bells are not just good for Christmas but they make a lovely wedding card.

Thinking of You – Add flowers, leaves or the husks and with those sentiments you have a lovely card to let someone know you are thinking of them.

Christmas – There are lots of stamps to use for this occasion, the bells or that gorgeous holly.  I love the font in this set.

Teamed with the Framelits they make cards for every occasion. It is such a versatile set.

Speaking of those Framelits though.  Did you realise they are double stitched?  They have a stitched line effect on the outside edge and the inside edge of the diecut.  It looks really cool. With 3 different sizes you can layer them together.

Below is a video from Shannon West at Stampin’ Up! to show how these stamps and dies can work together but it especially has some great tips on watercolouring, so be sure to check it out.  If you are viewing this from an email update and the video is not showing be sure to click on the blog link above to go directly to my blog to view it. 🙂

Here are some ideas courtesy of Stampin’ Up! Some of the cards are the ones featured in the video.

I think this one below is one of my favourites I have seen with this bundle.  It shows how the Framelits work with the stitching and I love the colours used.

Lots of great ideas for you.

If you are after some more inspiration you can head to my Pinterest board -> HERE and check them out.

Thanks for stopping by,





Quite a few weeks back I mentioned a team stamp day I went to and we had a Shoebox swap.  I said I would share the cards we made.  It has taken some time to get back to them with lots of other exciting things happening.  Over the next few days though I will share them with you.

Firstly, if you are not sure what a Shoebox swap is: Each person makes a card and then makes up kits for that card for the number of people that will be there at the event. We had 13 people come along for that team day.  I have already shared my card I made for it some weeks ago.  You can see that card -> HERE.

The Animal Outing set was a popular stamp set to use for that day.  I will show you these cards today.  I won’t give you specific details on the cards.  I think for the most part they are straight forward.

All the Rhinos were coloured with the Blender Pen which I don’t normally use to colour.

The curvy pieces of card sticking from under this card below is actually a piece of Grapefruit Grove card punched with the Daisy Punch.  The Daisy is then cut and sections adhered under the stamped piece.  The background on the Basic Gray card is stamped with one of the stamps from the  Waterfront set I think it was.

The background strip on the card below was stamped with the Waterfront stamp set too I think.  The colours used for this was Mossy Meadow, Old Olive and Smoky Slate.  I drew “dashed” lines with Black Marker on the stamped card piece with the Rhino to create a frame around him.

This one below has a lot of different steps to it which I will explain below.

The circles were stamped in versamark using the Stamparatus to position them and then heat embossed.  I think there was a template to cut the circle from the white card (which was shimmery White card) to be sure it was in position.  On the circle off-cut the little frog on a tree was stamped in black Stazon and coloured with the Watecolor Pencils I think.  It was coloured after the next step though.  The circle was sprinkled with Brushos Crystals and then misted with water.  The corners were  punched with the Detailed Trio punch.

I will be back tomorrow with some other great projects from the team day.  Stay tuned.



I have a really fascinating video to share with you today for Wednesday’s WOW! #31.  I hear many people comment on the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper. Not only is it really lovely thickness but the prints are usually so beautiful – on both sides! The dilemma is which side to choose some times! 

I wonder if you have noticed though the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper?  It is really gorgeous paper.  The floral prints are actual photographs and then on the other side you have the lovely marble prints.

What do you think?

I have just come across a video of the design process to create this paper.  I think you will find it interesting.  I did anyway. 🙂

We do have some clever designers.   I had noticed it in the catalogue but I must admit, when I watched the video I had to go back and take another closer look.  I may just have to grab some of it too.

BTW: This is one of the paper packs that are on the Buy 3, Get one Free promotion for this month.  So even better.  Stop by in my store ->HEREto grab some.

OK, I know I said I would share my projects from my Catalogue Showcase from last weekend and I will but I have one more card with the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut paper while we are on that topic.  I hope you are not sick of them. I just have this one I wanted to share with you and then I will move on.  I will come back to this paper down the track though don’t you worry. 🙂

I had a small section of the Laser-Cut paper and thought I would add it to a tag.  When I did do that I found that the paper was so fine that it really should be on a card to support it a little more.  SO, I added the tag to a card. A Gorgeous Grape one at that.  This is a new colour and I think I like it!

The white card is embossed with the new Tufted Embossing Folder.  Have you noticed that in the catalogue?  It is a little hard to see it.  It is like a quilted effect you might say.  What about that gorgeous Mini Striped Gorgeous Grape ribbon. 

Now have you added this paper to your Wish List yet?? Or better still added it to your shopping cart??? I think you need to.
