cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!


This weekend it’s all about the Sailing Home Bundle in my classes and on my blog here.  So I think it’s a good time to have a closer look at the full Come Sail Away Suite for Sunday Suites today.

This is a really great suite for those hard-to-make men’s cards.  Let’s face it.  We all struggle with them.  While it might be boats and sailing there are some other fun elements.  Let’s have a look.

You can make some of the samples above and lots more with any or all of the Suite products below.

The Come Sail Away Suite can be ordered with just one item code making shopping so much easier. #152175  $165.25 AUD

or you can pick just one or 2 of the items.

I wanted to show you a couple of the products in closer detail.

The Memories and More Card pack features maritime images.  It has 50 double-sized cards and they come in 2 different sizes. 3″ x 4″ (7.6 x 10.2 cm) and 4″ x 6″ (10.2 x 15.2 cm) sizes.  I love the single-sided laser-cut specialty cards.  See them below.

There is also some sticker sheets included too.  Don’t just think of the these card packs for scrapbooking.  They are great for cards as well.

You have to check out the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper. 

The prints show really don’t show it justice to be honest.  There are some great nautical prints.  Check the video below the paper image.

Now you need to see this High Seas 3D Embossing Folder closer.  It is like waves.  Great with this bundle.  Available now for $17 AUD #149577 (You can order it in store in the link below)

You get a really good idea of this embossing folder in the Soft Suede sample below.  And by the way the card above that uses one of the diecut cards from the Memories and More pack.

What do you think of this bundle.  I can tell you everyone has loved using them in class this weekend.  … And they may have added it to their orders. 🙂

You can grab the Come Sail Away Suite with just one item code or grab one or two items.  Shop in my store now -> HERE.

If you order the full Suite I will also send you out the Card kits and tutorials.

Thanks for visiting me today to see these great products.  I hope you can use them for the men in your life.

Today’s Sunday Suite we are looking at is the Dinoroar Suite.  This is such a cute set. I don’t have any young children anymore but if you have children or grandchildren this would be a great suite for you.

This is all the products you will find in the Dinoroar Suite.  Those cute little dinosaurs in the Dino Days stamp set.  I have heard too that some of the dies will cut the dinosaurs in the Dinoroar Designer Series Paper.  That’s always cool when you can do that.  No cutting with scissors.

Stampin' Up! Dinoroar Suite

If you choose to get the whole suite it is just one item code.  That makes life easy.  In Australia that is $132.50  #152194

How about this for a cute card created by a Stampin’ Up! artist.  Have a close look at the threads under the hatched egg.  This is actually the Denim Ribbon that has been pulled apart to create the threads… Clever!

Dinoroar _ Hatched Egg

Another cute card below.  You know I don’t think you necessarily have to have young children to have this suite.  Many older people would be happy to have this cute dino on a card too. 🙂

If you do have young children what about a cute banner though with the paper.  Great for their bedroom or for a birthday party.  Oh! The ideas are endless.  Such fun.

You can grab this suite or parts of it in my store now.  Head over -> HERE.

Have a great day.

It’s Sunday Suites time.  Today we are looking at the Pressed Petals Suite.  I have seen a lot of projects with this suite recently so I thought it would be timely to look at it.

The Pressed Petals Suite includes a sweet stamp set, Path of Petals, for those special encouraging occasions. (See it closer below).  I love the Petal Labels Dies.  They create some very detailed, delicate labels for your sentiments. 

This is the Path of Petals stamp set.

With these Suites you can use just one Item code to get all of these items together. The Pressed Petals Suite is #152193 and is $167.76 AUD

In the Suite it includes the Pressed Petals Journal.  I have only just noticed the embossed cover. Isn’t that gorgeous??  You can decorate the Journal with some simple decorations.  Not too much or you cover the lovely embossing. On this one it is using the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.

You have to have a closer look at the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.  It looks like pressed flowers on the paper.  Do you remember pressing flowers when you were younger?  Picking the flowers then pressing them in piles of books between paper.  It is just like it.

A couple more samples for you using this suite of products.

I have to show you the Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape.  It contains 2 rolls.  One roll is a Crumb Cake tape.  The other petal one is not your regular Washi Tape here.  The roll of tape actually contains individual petals.  You can use the petals on their own as an embellishment or you can peel one off at a time and build up your flower. It is $13 AUD  It is very clever.  I haven’t seen anything like that before have you?

If you want to have a closer look at this suite check the video out below.  It shows you in much more detail the journal and the gorgeous Washi Tape.

So there is the Pressed Petals Suite.

If you want to grab one of these products or all of them you can grab them in my store now -> HERE.  (Australian residents). Please use the Host Code: HCCFFCSU

I don’t usually post on a Sunday but today I am starting a new series on my blog.  Most Sundays I am going to share  with you about some of the Stampin’ Up! Suites available for Sunday Suites. You hear about the Suites but sometimes don’t see them closely.

I have been sharing some projects this past week with the Mosaic Mood Suite so I thought we would start here today.

Introducing the Mosaic Mood Suite.

Look closely at the samples.  The images are pretty cool right.  They look like mosaic tiles.  You can easily cut some of the images from the pretty Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper.  

Stampin' Up! Mosaic  Mood Suite

Here is a closer look at the papers.  You can’t tell in the photo but some of the images have a shiny finish.  It looks – and feels really nice.

The colours in the papers are Blushing Bride, Crushed Curry, Garden Green, Mint Macaron, Soft Suede, Terracotta Tile, Very Vanilla, Whisper White

To see the complete suite see below.

You have lovely Flower Faceted Gems. 8 each of 3 colours: Crushed Curry, Mint Macaron, Terracotta Tile.  The Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon is so soft and gorgeous. The Timeless Label Punch can be used for many of your Sentiments.  I love the funky Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder.  You could use that for many different occasions for a fun background on your cards.

With all the Suites, you can buy the items individually or buy them in the Suite Bundle with just one item code.  Makes ordering so much quicker.   This is what you will find in the Mosaic Mood Suite Bundle.  $130.25 AUS

Here are just a couple more samples for you.  You can see the images closer that has been cut from the paper and even the funky embossing.

These are available in my store now -> HERE.
