12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 11 – ALL IS BRIGHT!

I know I have featured the All is Bright Designer Series Paper a lot recently for my 12 Weeks of Christmas.  But hey! it’s a fun, festive paper and so easy to make cards with and that is what 12 Weeks of Christmas is all about.

Here we have Week 11 of our 12 Week of Christmas series.

The card base is Garden Green. The red card mat was embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. The piece of All is Bright Designer Series paper which is about 7.5cm wide (3″) was cut to a banner ends with scissors.  The circle wreath from the Making Christmas Bright was stamped in Garden Green.  The sentiment was stamped in black and the Bright was stamped in Real Red.  I added some Red Rhinestones for dress up the wreath.  This circle wreath was adhered on to a scallop circle in Gold Foil cut with the Layering Circles Framelits.  Before adhering this piece to the card I added some Red Satin Ribbon hanging from behind it.  

I love the brightness of this card and the festive feel to it.  Very traditionally red and green Christmas don’t you think?

So next Friday is our last project for our 12 Weeks of Christmas.  That’s crazy! That means it’s almost Christmas.  I don’t know about you but I am totally not ready.  How about you?

Just a note on this stamp set too the Making Christmas Bright.  This stamp set is carrying over BUT not as a bundle.  If you like this stamp set then grab it now and get it at 10% off for the Bundle.  It is too late for this year’s projects but then you are all ready for next year.

You can grab it in my store now -> HERE at $61 for the bundle which includes the Making Christmas Bright stamp set and the Bulb Builder Punch.  Please use the Host Code: BZ6KB7SU or you can contact me directly.

STAR BORDER WITH MAKING CHRISTMAS BRIGHT!

Another card for you with the Making Christmas Bright Bundle.  This one I wanted to use the star strip that is in the set.

I stamped the star strip several times and across the card and stamped 3 rows of the star strip.  It took some time lining them up.  I did try using the Stamparatus but it wasn’t lining up properly so I just stamped it by “eye”. I held my breath and just stamped.  That’s how it is done didn’t you know. 😉 I coloured the stars with the markers using Real Red, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight.  The colours are really bright.  It is actually Real Red.  Something happened in the editing. 🙂

The string was stamped across the corner for the 3 bulbs to run along it.  The bulbs were punched out with the Bulb Builder Punch. and raised up with Dimensionals.

This card was inspired by Sara’s card -> HERE.

Are you liking this bundle yet?  Lots you can do with it.  Are you liking that you can get it as a bundle now and save 10%? From January it will be individual prices so I would get it now if I was  you. 🙂 Grab it in store -> HERE. It is $61 AUS for the bundle now.

Thanks for stopping by with me.  I have another card with this Bundle to share with you tomorrow for our 11th Week of 12 Weeks of Christmas series so be sure to stop on by.

QUICK CHRISTMAS CARDS WITH SANTA’S WORKSHOP MEMORIES AND MORE CARDS!

You might have seen the Santa’s Workshop Memories and More Card Pack in the Holiday Catalogue (p 21). Don’t just think of them as cards for Pocket Scrapbooking.  That’s what I did at first to be honest. They are really cute to make quick cards up.  Here are a few I had made up recently.

You can simply adhere them to a base card or layer 2 of the cards together (like I have done with the Candy Cane card).  I stamped on the sentiments in black on these larger cards.  Alternatively you can add a few extra embellishments (like I have done with the smaller reindeer ones).  The cards come in a couple of different sizes.  The larger ones are 10.2 x 15.2cm, the smaller ones are 7.6 x 10.2cm.

I must dig out some of the rest of these cards and make up some more.  They come together so quickly. So great when we all starting to feel a little time poor at the moment. Unfortunately you can’t buy these anymore which is sad.  You could get the Santa’s Workshop Specialty Designer Series Paper which is Twelve 12″x12″ sheets of paper which have very cute images.  That could work similar.  But you better get on to those if you want them as they are low inventory stock.

Here they are for you. Aren’t they cute?

You can order them in store -> HERE for $24.25.  Get on it. Please use the Host Code: BZ6KB7SU  

And remember don’t mark your order “anonymous” because then I can’t send you out your Thank You card and gift.

Have a great day,

Jenny

ONE FOR ALL MINI THANKS!

I hadn’t got around to sharing this little card with you.  This card is just a small love note size, so 7.5cm x 7.5cm (3″x3″).  I made quite a few of these mini cards recently for Customer Thank You cards.  This is using the lovely One For All set.

I made 2 different versions. One in a Mint Macaron card base with the flower and stamping in Mint Macaron too and a Calypso Coral banner.  Then one in a Calypso Coral base card, stamping and flower with a Mint Macaron banner.  I cut the banner free hand by cutting in to the ends of the strip.  I added a Vellum circle cut from the Stitched Labels Framelits.  The flower is cut from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.

I sent these out as a little Thanks for customers who ordered the last month or two.  With a little token gift too of course.

If you are in Australia you can purchase your Stampin’ Up! supplies from my store -> HERE and they will be sent directly to you.  Ask me for the current Host Code. Alternatively, drop me a comment or message and I can arrange your order.  I appreciate each and every order. 

Thanks for visiting,

Onstage, Personal Ramblings, Stampin' Up!

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 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.
