3D projects, Catalogues, Christmas


It’s Wednesday.  Time for another Wednesday’s WOW!  Since Christmas it fast approaching I thought we would look at a fun Christmas project – the Christmas Countdown Project Kit. Although the elements in this kit are for Christmas it’s a great project that you can use for other countdowns or even storing some little items.  What about embellishments in your craft room?

The kit contains the box elements and all the supplies to create 25 boxes.

You can see this kit in action in this video.

So what could you use this for yourself other than Christmas?  Maybe a Birthday Countdown,  Countdown to a special holiday,  Perhaps a rewards box with treats in it for your young children in the family or at school for a teacher.  Or some people have used this in the craft room for storage of those small embellishments or punch-outs.  And you can dress it up any way you like.  Don’t be limited to the supplies in the kit.

If you would like to see some more creativity with this kit head to my Pinterest board -> HERE.

You can see it in my store now -> HERE.  You can order directly from there too. Please use the Host Code: 3F2MRZYP

or contact me directly.

Cost is $52 AUS.

Don’t forget go in the draw this month to win a new Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer when you place an order with me over $25.

Have fun with this kit.  Let me know if you have any other ideas to use it for.

Happy Stamping,

Sunday Suites.  Today we are looking at the Monster Bash Suite.  It’s coming up to that time so thought I would share it.  We are not big on the whole Halloween thing here but maybe you are and you want to see some inspiration.

These are all the products available in the Monster Bash Suite.  You can buy them all as one item at $156.00 AUD or individually.

While I am not big on the whole Halloween thing I really love 2 products in this suite of products and they can be used for any occasion.  I have shared them in the past.

The Ornate Frames Dies

These are great to use for any sentiments. Layer them or use them on their own.

The Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder

You can see both of these nicely on this little tag.

You can buy any of these in my store now -> HERE.  Don’t miss the Ornate Frames Dies though or the Stylish Scrolls Embossing Folder.

Back with another Wednesday’s WOW!  I have just received the new Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer and wanted to share it all with you.  So today’s WOW! is a review video of the new Paper Trimmer. You can check it out below.

Just a few of the highlights of the Paper Trimmer that I see –

  • Clearly marked measurements in both Metric and Imperial on the Trimmer base not only along the top but in the middle as well as along the bottom. This will enable you to line your  card up better to see that it is straight.
  • Measurements clearly seen in the “gap” where the arm moves out from the side. Previously they were not shown so it was a little guesswork of the measurements.  For me this is a BIG PLUS!
  • A wider cutting base to cut cardstock.
  • Blades are larger which I think will enable better cutting – and hopefully longer lasting blade wear.
  • The ability to cut tiny strips of card without any problem.

The Paper Trimmer is now available for Demonstrators.  You can include that in your Starter Kit when you join Stampin’ Up! this month.  It will be available Very Soon for customers.

I will be posting here further updates but if you would like to be notified personally then drop me a comment or email and I will advise you when it is released.

In Australia it will be available for purchase for $44 AUD.  Replacement Blades will be available to order also for $21 AUD for a pack of 4.

I will tell you more when this trimmer will be available as I know.

I am back with another Sunday Suite today.  Before the weather heats up too much here I thought we should look at this cute Let It Snow Suite.  We don’t usually get snow at Christmas.  Well I can’t say never because strange things have happened … 🙂

Snowmen are not usually the first thing we think about for Christmas though with the heat and we are usually making sand men rather than snowmen.  But you gotta love these cute snowmen.

This is all the products available in the Let It Snow Suite Bundle.  You can buy them all with one item code (#153386 $230.25 AUD)

You can purchase the items individually too.

The Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper.  You really need to see this paper closer (HERE).  It has glittery patterns on one side and the other side is more versatile prints you could use at any time of the year.

Red Glimmer Paper is back!! I am really happy this lovely shiny paper is available again.  $8.75 AUD for 2 sheets 12″x12″

Snowfall Accents Puff Paint.  This is a fun product.  Run it on to your project like a liquid glue.  Heat it up and see it puff up. You will just want to leave it a little time to let it set.

Way cool!  $7.75 AUD

Here are some samples with this fun suite.  You just have to love those snowmen having a fun time in the snow.

The little Tiny Keepsakes boxes are really sweet.  They make little treat holders measuring (5.4 x 4.8 x 4.8 cm).  Just the size for a chocolate or 2.  These are made with the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box dies ($59 AUD) or the bundle with the stamp set is $84.50 AUD

You can see more details about the Let It Snow Suite at my store -> HERE and order.  Please use the Host Code: 6CCRNYH6

Happy Stamping,

Today I have a Magnolia Card for you.  I shared a card recently with the Magnolia Blooms set.  This is another card I made at the time.

The Magnolia flower was coloured with the Petal Pink and the Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends.

This is a Half-Fold Card.  The front of the card base is cut in half. I used a strip of the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper down the left hand edge of the card base.

There is a smaller panel that is placed off the edge of the front flap with the magnolia image.  It’s simple but adds another dimension to your card.  See the inside below.

I should have coloured the inside leaves.  I forgot about them.


I’m really liking this Magnolia Blooms set.  Why?

  • It’s simple to use.
  • It’s easy to colour. The simple lines and shading makes it easy to follow when colouring to get the depth of colour on it.
  • It’s great for a Beginner stamper starting out in stamping but great for the Avid stamper who can step it up with other products they have.
  • It has great sentiments for any occasion.  I love the font too.
  • It’s affordable.  $24 AUD people! How great is that.

So have you got this set?? Really.  It’s one of THE most affordable sets in the catalogue.  You won’t find it in the Annual Catalogue.  It is in the Experience Creativity brochure.

Available to order in my store now -> HERE.
