WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #65 – EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR TRIMMER BLADES!

I often have people telling me about problems when cutting with the Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer.  The blades don’t seem to last long and they get furry edges when trimming. I have that problem too. Add to that now the Trimmer is being retired and there won’t be any more Trimmer blades available.

So I have a solution today for you for Wednesday’s WOW! #65 I think you will find very useful if you experience some of these problems.  How to extend the life of your blades to avoid those furry edges.  And also so you don’t have to replace your blade so quickly. 🙂

When you cut your card place a piece of scrap paper or copy paper in between the Trimmer and the card you are cutting.  You will get a crisper cut edge when you cut.  This will help you make those blades last longer before you have to replace them.

Of course you end up with shreds of paper but that’s ok.  Just recycle them.  I will say it can be tedious if you have to cut a lot of card but for a few quick cuts it is great. I have used this for some time now and I don’t have to replace my blades too frequently.

Hope this is helpful.  Share it around as it might help some of your cardmaking friends. 🙂

GEARED UP GARAGE WEEK – IT’S ALL GEARS!

Another project for our Classic Garage Week.  This one focuses on 2 different prints in the Classic Garage Designer Series Paper Pack.  Did you know these papers are 6″x6″.  Great size for your cards without feeling that you have to cut into a HUGE piece of paper.  We all know what that feels like right?? 😉

The black and white prints in this pack are quite striking.  I used 2 different ones.  I cut a piece using the Garage Gears Thinlits from one of the plain, coloured prints in the pack. Don’t forget to even add the bling for a man’s card.  These are the really cute Classic Garage Metal Elements.

Have you got this Suite yet?  It’s a great one for the men’s cards and we all know how hard they are to make.

The Geared Up Garage is $84.50 AUS for the bundle.  Add on the paper and elements and Black/Silver Metallic Ribbon if you like too.  See them and order -> HERE in my store. Please use the  Host Code: P3TZFUNA when ordering.

Orders over $78 will also receive the exclusive Tutorial Bundle with 12 great projects.  This will be emailed to you after you order.  

Thanks for visiting,

SPARK A LITTLE JOY WITH STORAGE BY STAMPIN’ UP!

Decluttering and organising is THE thing at the moment.  No area in the house is safe.  Now you have simple, functional storage for your craft space whether you have a designated room or you work straight from a box.  Storage By Stampin’ Up! is now available.

These units are made of a lightweight, durable plastic material that is easy to assemble and can stack to fit in your own area whatever your size.

Watch this quick video -> HERE to see how they all work together. 

Here are the different units and prices.  You can see how functional these pieces are.  Units specifically designed for your inkpads, Stampin’ Blends, Markers, Ink Refills and other special pieces.

Get a closer look at these products in my store -> HERE.

I have attached a chart below to show some of the ways you can configure the units.

It is hard to read, so download and print out your own copy so you can use it to measure out your craft area.

Download the chart -> 04.01.19_STORAGE_BY_STAMPIN_UP_CONFIGURATION_SP

 

Below are some Q and A you might be asking yourself.

Will old-design Stampin’ Pads fit in the Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays?
No. The Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays are designed to fit our new-design Stampin’ Pads only.

How high can I stack storage trays?
We stacked up to 50 storage trays without any issues, BUT we would not recommend stacking that high. While our Storage by Stampin’ Up! products are sturdy, the higher you stack them, the less stable they’ll become. Use your discretion when stacking.

Can I mount my Storage by Stampin’ Up! products on the wall?
No. Our modular storage products are designed to sit on a table (or similar flat surface).

How should I use the Open Storage Cube?
The Open Storage Cube can be used to hold any miscellaneous items like ribbon, embellishments and small punches. For more inspiration on ways to use items from our Storage by Stampin’ Up! product line, check out the configuration chart we created.

Can I mix and match Storage by Stampin’ Up! products?
Yes! Our Storage by Stampin’ Up! products are modular and designed with customisation in mind. Take a look at the flyer for more information on the size and dimensions of each item in our new modular storage product line.

How do the silicone feet work?
To protect your surface and prevent slipping, we’ve included peel-and-stick silicone feet with the Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays, Stampin’ Blends Storage Trays and Open Storage Cube.

FAVOURITES FOR SALE-A-BRATION 2019!

I have loved many of the products from Sale-A-Bration.  I can’t believe that it is coming to an end.  I have made lots of projects.  Some you don’t get to see here unless you come to classes or they are for the exclusive Tutorial Projects.

I thought I would share some of my favourites though from the past 3 months.  You can click on the link on the project to take you to the original post with more details on the project.

MANGO MELODY CUPCAKE

I shared this card in the previous post too but see this original post HERE.

BY THE BAY 

This was a fun Smooshing technique.  See the post HERE.

This By The Bay was stamped on the Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets.  See the post HERE.

SO HOPPY TOGETHER

This is a bright, cheery froggy card.  I called it a Half-Fold card but it’s not quite half. You can see it in this post HERE.

BOTANICAL BUTTERFLIES PAPER

We had a week of lots of butterflies just last week.  I shared lots of projects.  You can go back over the posts to see them all.  This was ONE of my favourites.  You can see it HERE.

What has been your favourite?  I would be interested to know.

Hope you have enjoyed this Sale-A-Bration.  You only have ONE DAY LEFT. 

Have you been contemplating?  There is not much time to contemplate any longer.  Shop and grab your Free Sale-A-Bration choice whether it be frogs, butterflies or flowers. Or maybe even one of the other choices.  With orders over $90 AUS you can receive your choice.

OR …

Maybe you have been contemplating joining.  What is your delay? Scared of signing your life away? maybe worried of not making your minimums?  Really, you can drop anytime.  What do you get? Apart from great value when you join with getting up to $146 of free products. You get discounts on all your later purchase.  Best of all you get to be with ME in my team.  OK, Maybe I don’t want to put you off with that.  But it’s lots of fun with lots of special friends.

See it all HERE but don’t delay. If you are in Australia come and join my JEN’s INK team.

FOREVER LOVELY ONSTAGE CARD!

I realised I hadn’t shown you this card.  This was one of the Make and Take cards from Onstage last November.  I know it’s a long time ago BUT I have only recently completed it.  🙂  You might have seen some versions around the internet.

This card is using the Forever Lovely set from the Occasions Catalogue.  I don’t have this set so it is nice to have a card using it.  The Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies are very detailed and decorative. I have used one of the little flower dies on this.

The paper banner strip is from the All My Love Designer Series Paper and the ribbon is the Lovely Lipstick from the All My Love Ribbon Combo pack.  The pearls give a little elegance to it.  I liked how one of the flower images and the leaves were stamped on the background of the Crumb Cake Card base.

Thanks for looking.  I hope your weekend is good. 🙂

SALE-A-BRATION KEEPS GETTING BETTER AND BETTER!

SELECT CATALOGUE PRODUCTS NOW AVAILABLE AS YOUR FREE SALE-A-BRATION CHOICE

I recently told you about the 2nd release of products for Sale-A-Bration which includes the gorgeous, popular Painted Seasons Bundle.  You can read more about all these -> HERE.

—————

CO-ORDINATING PRODUCTS

If you have loved some of the Sale-A-Bration stamp sets you can now order the co-ordinating dies to go with it.  Saves you all the time cutting them out with scissors.  Who has the time for that! Especially the details in the Lasting Lily set and the So Hoppy Together set.  Too fiddly!

There is also the new Story Label Punch that will work with many of your current sentiments stamps.

This is just one example below.  I will share more of them later.

See how the Lasting Lily card is so pretty with the added Dimension with the layers raised up.  Would you cut this out with scissors??

(project courtesy Stampin’ Up!)

Lasting Lily stamp set and the Lily Framelits Dies makes it so much easier.  The Framelits are $48 AUS
