4 weeks till Christmas!

Yep, only 4 weeks to go. Everything is getting so busy already. I've had no time for craft this week but wanted to show you this.
The first Christmas card that I have received, from one of my very talented downline demonstrators. Thanks heaps Wendy. Love it.

6 Weeks till Christmas

OK, so half way there. Only 6 weeks to go now. One of my favourite things about making my own cards is having the kids join me and have some crafting fun together. This is a card my son put together on the weekend. I chose this to show you as some have been wondering how big the single star stamp is. This is a normal C6 sized card. I also love this greeting from the Holiday mini catty.

So Much Going On!

November's addition of "Best Of" Stamps! Mind you I'm yet to buy any of these myself and neither has any of my customers, so not sure why I'm bothering to put these on here. But I know as soon as I don't, somebody's favourite will pop up!
New promotion!!!
Click HERE to see this flyer full size for all the details.

Now of course there is more going on. It's always full steam ahead at Stampin Up these days.
A whole new product so you an make YOUR OWN STAMPS!!!!!!!
Click HERE to see this flyer. Pretty Cool!!!

Click HERE to see the flyer!

AND the last thing I promise!
Wait for it...............................
The envelope punch board!!! Which isn't just for envelopes but all sorts of boxes too! There are tutorials all over the web at the moment.

  • It creates totally customisable envelopes in up to 66 different sizes (not to mention a million different colour and pattern options depending on the paper you want to use). Even tried and true envelope sizes will only take you moments to create! 
  • It's super easy to use; it will go over as a huge wow when you demonstrate it at your events and your customers see it in action. It looks intimidating at first glance, but when they see that all you have to do is measure for the first punch and from there you just turn and score they'll go crazy (in a good way). 
  • It's small and lightweight; this makes it easy for you to take it to your events and show it. It's also a great selling point when you show your customers how it's super portable and easy to store. It's small and light enough that they could use it while watching a football match, at a park, at a friend's for craft night-anywhere. 
  • It even has a clever scoring tool as well as a punch that lets you create rounded corners on your envelopes. 
  • It's easy to keep it all together; the stylus storage compartment and two punches are designed into the tool so you don't have a bunch of little pieces to keep track of (even the instructions are printed right on the tool so you won't lose them!).
  • The price is terrific--especially for a tool that does so much!
  • It will be in next year's annual catalogue, so it's here to stay.
The price????????????????????? Just $31.95. Wow!

7 weeks till Christmas!!!

Time for a little Cutie!!
This was a fun card to make using the Owl Occasions set. You can easily substitute any of your Christmas stamp sets to create this card. Bit more time consuming using the Stamp-a-ma-jig, to make sure it all lined up, but worth the extra effort.

8 weeks till Christmas!!

Who always runs out of time???? When making your own cards, especially when you are making a lot like at this time of year, you need to cut corners, or limit resources.
So this week I've made a card that is only a couple of layers, but you could even create this on a plain card base with no layers at all.
The best part about this style of card is it is meant to be abstract or a collage, so exact placement of stamps etc is not necessary. Just stamp away!!! Oh and this is another new In Colour that I am loving, Pistachio Pudding.

9 weeks till Christmas

Oh these weeks are flying. OK, this week I've used a colour combo I've fallen in love with. Our new In Colour, "Baked Brown Sugar" has a gorgeous gold look to it. Teamed up here with Riding Hood Red and Garden Green , it's a lovely classic look. I've also used the matching Ruffle Stretch Trim & the background was created using a stamp from Delicate Doilies.

Hope you like them!

10 weeks till Christmas!!

OK, let's go a little less traditional. Love the blue and silver combo for Christmas.
Below I've used the ever popular "Lovely as a tree", a MUST HAVE for your collection. Here I've teamed it up with some silver paper and embellishments to make Christmas trees.

 The blues I've used are one of our new In Colours, Coastal Cabana, and Island Indigo. The greeting has been stamped with silver ink using the Encore Pad (available again in our current Holiday catty). I was happy with these cards as they were relatively quick to make but are quite elegant.

11 weeks Till Christmas!!

I've started my Christmas collection this year with traditional colours and trying to use products within my "stash" or tools I don't use often.

So above I've used Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green. The flower accent is made using a stamp from Delicate Doilies, punched out with the 2-3/8" scallop punch. You can easily adapt this card to the items in your own "stash". Change the colours, DS paper, greeting etc. See you next week.

More "Single" Stamps!!!

YES! We have more single stamps available and they are Christmas themed. Whoo Hoo! This is always a time of year that stretches the budget, so maybe just 1 new stamp, rather than a whole set, might be just what you are looking for.
These are clear stamps and above in the table it tells you the block size you will need. Also the images are reduced to 50%. If you look at the block size suggested you will get a better idea of how big these are.

I've been busy stamping (finally) over the last 2 days and lots of projects ready to show you all in my 12 week count down. So look out for next Wednesdays post!

A post.... about time!

OK, slack, slack,slack...I know. And as it's almost  the end of August there is only a few days to get any orders in if these offers appeal to you. Remember, while I am more than happy to place orders for you, and give my usual postage discounts where I can, If you are in need of something in a hurry you can always place the order yourself online. Just choose me as your demonstrator so I know you've placed an order.

OK. So,

If you're a big fan of DS papers, and who isn't, then the current promo is buy 3 pkts and you'll get 1 extra pkt free. This only applies to normal DS papers, not stacks, or specialty ones. See pages 151, 153 and 154 of the catty for all the designs.

BEST OF........
The "Best of" stamps range continued in August with the "Best Of Shelli"

As with all the "Best Of" sets, they are available right up until April next year, a different collection is launched each month. We now have the Flowers, Butterflies and Shelli collections. See earlier posts for the other collections.

Lastly,   a NEW MINI CATALOGUE, our HOLIDAY CATALOGUE is just around the corner. Stay tuned!!
