September means NEW Holiday Catalogue & a sale!

Holiday Catalogue

Hi Everyone,

It's September and it's time for the Holiday Catalogue from Stampin' Up! 

You can view (and shop) the products online here and download a copy of the catalogue here. Of course, you could also email me and I will post a hardcopy out to you.


I'd also like to highlight a flyer from Stampin' Up! showing 25 products under $40! 

And one of my favourite Stampin' Up! sales is back! Buy 3, get 1 free Designer Series Paper.

You can view the papers online here.

I will be sharing some photos of projects using the Holiday catalogue products and also some of our DSP, so make sure you check back in regularly this month!

If you do shop online, and your order is under $250, I'd love for you to add my host code for this month. Orders over $250 will earn you some Stampin' goodies for free!!!

Colour Inspiration #58

Hi everyone,

I'm a bit late posting this card to my blog to actually take part in the Colour Inkspiration Challenge #58, however I figured it was such a pretty colour combination I still needed to share it with you!!

This is the Colour combo:

And this is my card:

It was for one of our team at work who was transferring to another store.

Have a look on Facebook for the next challenge and hopefully I'll be sharing another card with you soon.

ESAD 2019-2020 Annual Catalgoue Blog Hop Sneak Peek

Image may contain: text

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the ESAD 2019-20 Annual Catalogue Blog Hop Sneak Peek. If you are just starting here, you've got 25 amazing blogs all showcasing some of the new products from the NEW catalogue that is launched on Tuesday 4th June. If you are following the hop, you will have come from Rebecca's blog.

I thought I'd make a little card and gift box set.

I have created my own dsp from the button stamps from the It Stamps with Art stamp set, which I then coloured with my watercolour pencils.

I made a thicker button embellishment by adhering 5 layers of card buttons, the button are from the Arts & Crafts Dies. Once the layers were glued together and dry, I sanded the edges with an emery board.

The box design was cased from The Paper Pixie, I followed Julie's facebook live video with the directions whilst she was creating her own version. (I confess, I did use scrap dsp and card to start with and then made this version in my own time)

The suede/fabric look for the Bermuda Bay stripe on the card and box were made by separating the top and bottom layer of smooth card by breaking down the fibres in the cardstock by rubbing it over my bone folder several times. 

Product List

Now the group that is behind this hop is ESAD and here's a little bit of info about it...
