2022 CATALOGUE LAUNCH – PART 2!

Back with some more on my Catalogue Launch last weekend.

Firstly, I made everyone an In Color Bookmark. I forgot to take a photo of them all although I did do a Reel of them in Instagram last week. See it -> here.

I have a photo of one of them I had left. This one in Starry Sky. I had all different colours.

I used the Rainbow Dies for the curvy edge on the bottom. The card strips were embossed with the Fern 3D Embossing Folder.

Here is the second card. This one with the Happiness Abounds Bundle.

I love the effect of the Die background.

This card was inspired by Shelly Godby -> HERE.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

2022 CATALOGUE LAUNCH – PART 1

I held my Catalogue Launch over the weekend in 2 sessions. Lots of fun had by all I think. It was good to all get together again.

Before we started I filmed a video. I have it below so you can see it all ready to go.

One of the projects we made was using the Sending Smiles Bundle. Lots of bright, fun colours with this card.

Don’t you like the Parakeet Party and the Tahitian Tide together? Some people did the Parakeet Party with Orchid Oasis. That looked great too.

The card was inspired by one I saw -> HERE.

Have you checked out the catalogue yet?

In Australia? It can all be viewed online -> HERE.

Have a great day,

Jenny

COLOR AND CONTOUR AND PARTY PUFFINS FOR MY CATALOGUE LAUNCH!

I wanted to share with you the cards everyone got to make at my 2021 Catalogue Launch last weekend. I think everyone liked them.

This card was with the new Color and Contours Bundle. I’m really enjoying this set. It’s so easy to use and I love that you can choose to colour the flowers or use the “solid” flower centres to colour them. For the leaves we coloured them with the Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend. How pretty is the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper edge. A strip is added just inside the card as you have the cut off scallop section on the front.

The next card uses the fun Party Puffins set. How cute are these little guys??

The pretty Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper was diecut one of the Basic Borders Dies. The stamped scalloped rectangle is from the Scalloped Contours Dies. You can add a little colour to the Puffin with the Stampin’ Blends.

The Color and Contours Bundle can be seen in my store -> HERE. I love the variations of dies in the Scalloped Contours Dies.

This is the cute Party Puffins stamp set. See it -> HERE in my store.

If you are in Australia you can shop in my store for these or any of the other great products. Head to the above links and shop around more if you like.

HOT CHOCOLATE BAR CATALOGUE REVIEW!

A few weeks ago now I had the catalogue launch for the 2019 Holiday Catalogue.  I decided on a Hot Chocolate Bar for it.  Since Christmas is so hot here it’s not the time for Hot Chocolate.  Actually it had been quite hot the days leading up to the weekend so it was a bit ironic.  On the day though the weather cooled down.  It was a lot of fun and always so nice for everyone to see what is out for their Christmas creating.

I thought I would share a little bit of it with you.

Firstly, since it was a Hot Chocolate Bar I made up the little gifts in take-away coffee cups.  I know they are not environmentally friendly but I had these sitting around so why not use them.

They were decorated with the snowflake from the Christmas Layers Dies from the Dazzling Glimmer Paper.  It is a bit hard to see the sparkle.  How gorgeous is that Cherry Cobbler Diagonal stripe Ribbon.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas set but check the frame.  You might actually miss these in the catalogue.  They are created with the Ornate Frames Dies from Shaded Spruce card and then a Cherry Cobber Scallop square from the Layering Squares Dies.

See it here closer.

In the cups I had some ribbon and little embellishments and of course the obligatory chocolate treat. 🙂

We made 2 cards on the day.  I will show you one today and then another tomorrow.

We used the Brightly Gleaming Suite for the cards.

The card above is quite simple really but it looks quite classy with the gorgeous shiny copper accents on the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper and the sparkly Star Designer Elements. The Copper Foil was embossed with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.  Doesn’t that look a cool effect.

When I made the card originally I made a small gift tag up with some “bits” left over.  It’s good to have a matching tag.

The Classic Weave Ribbon is gorgeous with the embossed copper words on it.

I will show you the other card next time.

Until then, why not stop on by my store and check out all the Brightly Gleaming items in the suite. HEAD -> HERE.

If you want to order any of these please use the HOST CODE: 3JU96AZN

Or you can contact me directly to order. (Australian residents only).

Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to stop by again to see the other project. And By the way, If you live in Wollongong be sure to come along to a class sometime.  We are a friendly bunch.  It will be great to see you.

BIRD BALLAD WEEK DAY 4 – CATALOGUE KICK OFF MAKE AND TAKE!

Bird Ballad Week Day 4.  Have you liked the projects so far?

A few weeks ago I had my Catalogue Kick-Off event for everyone to come and see the new catalogue and have fun creating.  This was one of the cards that everyone got to make using the Bird Ballad Suite.

I have CASED this card from Angie’s blog -> HERE. I loved the simpleness of it yet it is still elegant.  Everyone who came to my Kick-Off loved the card too.

Bird Ballad card

I used the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and the gorgeous Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  The birds were coloured with the Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends.  I had never used Petal Pink until a few weeks ago.  Now I am really starting to love it – possibly.  They certainly work nicely with this suite.

You can grab the Bird Ballad Bundle in my store now -> HERE.  Please use the Host Code: H2BBRFTE

I really love those Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  You won’t be sorry you bought those. You can buy them as the bundle or individually.

Thanks for visiting today.  Have a great day/night wherever you may be visiting me from.

GINGHAM TEA BAG TREAT HOLDER!

I had my Summer Sizzler Catalogue Launch on this weekend for the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.  It was a fun time sharing lots of the gorgeous new products and samples with them.

I will share some of the cards I have made over the next couple of weeks.  Today I thought I would share with you the little Treat Holders I made for everyone who came to Thank them for coming.

These cute little Treat Holders are made using the new Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper stack.  The paper is 6″x6″ (15.2cmx15.2cm) and are just the right size for these.  I made them in some of the different colours.  I took a photo of 3 of the different colour ones.  I have also used the lovely Organdy Ribbon that is available as a free choice for Sale-A-Bration. I will tell you how to make them below.

To decorate the front of them I stamped one of the butterfly stamps from Butterfly Gala set using Black Memento ink and these were then coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  Using the Butterfly punch makes life a lot easier.  No fussy cutting them. 🙂 The sentiment is from the Well Said stamp set.  I stamped the “THANKS” on to Whisper White and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch.  I then could trim off each end. I find this a much easier way of doing it.

To make the Treat Holders

1. Take your 15.2cm x15.2cm (6″x6″) piece of paper.  I have used the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper stack.

Line the left hand edge of the paper on the 6.7cm (2 5/8″) mark on the Envelope Punch Board.

Punch the paper and score on the score grid of the Punch Board.

2. Turn the paper 90′.  Line up the little score tab on the previous score line.  Punch and score.

Turn the paper another 90′.  Line the tab mark on the score line, punch and score.  Turn again and repeat.

3. Round the corners using the corner rounder on the punch board.  Fold on the score lines. Decide which side you want showing on the outside, place that side facing down when folding.

NB: In the photo below I hadn’t turned it over at this point.

Fold up the bottom tab.  Place adhesive on the 2 outside edges of this tab. I used Snail adhesive.  Fold in one side tab and adhere down. Before folding in the other side tab place adhesive on the inside bottom edge of this tab.  Fold over and adhere down.

Decorate as you like. To add ribbon, punch a hole in the top tab and thread through your ribbon.

This is a great size for a Tea Bag packet, chocolate, Gift card or other treat.

Enjoy.

Jenny

WISHING YOU WELL MAKE AND TAKE!

Since I am sharing cards with the Wishing You Well set lately I thought I should show you this one.  This card was one of the cards we made at my Holiday Catalogue Launch a few weeks ago.  Everyone liked making this card even though it is fairly simple.  We made this on the weekend at a private class too.  They all liked it there also. 🙂  (BTW: If you can’t make a class you can book a Private class with me with a couple of friends. They are always a fun time).

The layout is based on the Freshly Made Sketches #352 – you can see that here. 

There was the option to stamp the bow on scrap white paper and cut it out (no Framelits or punch for that sorry!).  This was raised up with Dimensionals and that looked good too. The strip of paper is from the Country Lane Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment stamped on Crushed Curry was cut with the Bunch of Banners Framelits and we trimmed off one of the ends of the banner. We added a few loops of Silver Thread behind it.  To add some colour to the white space the “dots” from Timeless Textures was stamped in several places in Mint Macaron.

I made another similar card to this in Christmas colours.  Check that out in tomorrow’s post.

Thanks for stopping by today,

Jenny

OPEN HOUSE REVIEW AND A WALK THROUGH VIDEO!

Over the weekend I had my Open House Events for the new Catalogue.  I had some lovely ladies coming along for lots of fun and creativity.  I thought I would share some photos and a video for you.  Once again I didn’t take photos of when people are there…. I always forget that.  There is too much going on.  🙂

I just had a small display of samples but that’s OK.  Sometimes it can get a bit overwhelming when people first come along.

Firstly, the video for you.  (If you receive this post via email then head to my blog post by clicking on the Title and you should get there to view it properly)

I will share details of some of the cards I showed in the video over the next few posts but here is just a couple of still photos to share.

The Eastern Palace Suite Display.  I have shared most of these projects over the last few weeks.

Color Theory Suite.  I will share more details of these later.

New Product Display

Incolor Flower Box using the Delightful Daisy Bundle The box is made using the Wood Crate Thinlits.  This was inspired by a Demonstrator on a Facebook group I am on. The centres are the new Gold Faceted Gems.

Everyone received a Thank You Gift for coming of a little pack of Incolor ribbon and a bow, some Gold Faceted Gems and a chocolate. It was all gifted in a Wood Crate.  The flower is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set.

Lucky Door Prize for each event was some 6×6″Eastern Medallion paper, Easter Gold Vinyl Stickers and Gold Ribbon.

Sorry if you couldn’t make it along.  I wanted to share some of the creations with you though.  If you are local then try and come along next time.
