Virtual Christmas Card Class

I was hoping that we were going to be able to get together for card classes, but with the current lockdown rules, I don’t think that is going to be an option any time soon.

Seeing as we are already in October and I don’t anticipate that we will be able to meet in person before the end of November, this would be a bit late to start making Christmas cards!

So, I am going to host an online class, either by Zoom, or using a different video conferencing app that I am currently investigating (details to follow).

I will post out the kits and you will get the materials to make 6 cards (2 each of 3 different designs).  The kits will have all the card stock, designer series paper and die cuts required to complete your cards.

In addition, you will need to add sentiments using whatever stamp sets you have in your stash (contact me if you would like any new ones), ink to stamp the sentiments, and adhesives (glue and dimensionals).

The cost of the class will be $40 (including postage).  Once I have finished designing the cards, I will let you know what we are making.  One of them will definitely be a pinwheel tower card – you may have seen that these are the latest craze and they are fun to make with a wow factor!

Please let me know as soon as possible if you are going to participate to allow enough time for your kits to get to you (I am sure that you are aware that post is taking a bit longer at the moment).

If you need any supplies (stamp sets or consumables for the class), feel free to contact me and I will put in an order for you, or you can go to my online store and place the order yourself.

I hope that you will join me for a fun afternoon of crafting!  If you know anyone who would like to join us, please feel free to share this post with them.

World Card Making Day Online Classes

I am sure that you have heard the buzz – the 2nd October is World card Making Day! We only get 1 day a year where we have a reason (obligation) to make cards. Unfortunately with the current lock down status in Melbourne, we won’t be able to create together. However, we cannot allow the day to pass us by unacknowledged!

The way that we can give the day the recognition that it deserves is to craft together virtually. Stampin’ Up! has given us the perfect solution – card kits!!

I am going to run 2 sessions on the 2nd of October. We will assemble the Paper Pumpkin kit at 10:00 and the Christmas Whimsy kit at 2:00. You are welcome to join me for one or for both sessions.

The Christmas Whimsy is an all inclusive kit and the only additional item that it needs is something to clean your stamps. This kit makes 8 standard size cards (4 cards of 2 different designs with some left over elements to make a few extras).

The Paper Pumpkin makes more general use cards. It is beautiful and co-ordinates with the Expressions in Ink suite in the annual catalogue. This one makes 6 standard size cards and 3 note cards (and also has some left overs). In addition to the kit, you will need an acrylic block to mount your stamps. If you get both kits, you can use the acrylic block from the Christmas Whimsy kit.

Here is my unboxing video so that you can see what come in the kits:

I would love you to join in. If you want to make both kits, but can only attend one time slot, please let me know. I can stay online for a while afterwards and you can make the second kit.

The cost of the Paper Pumpkin kit is $37 and the Christmas Whimsy is $33 (plus postage). Please contact me if you would like me to place an order for you. You can head over to my online store to place the order yourself. (Please use the button with the host code on the side to shop). As this is going to be a virtual event, you can join from anywhere in Australia. I would suggest that you place your order early so that it will get to you in time.

Please spread the word to all your friends, and let’s have a big online party to commemorate World Card Making day! Hoping to see you then

Creativity Abounds Tutorial Bundle Design Team Blog Hop – Whimsy & Wonder

Welcome to our August Creativity Abounds Blog Hop. We are a group of very keen Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world that are coming together to share our creative ideas with you. We are happy that you can join us and hope that we can Inspire you to make creations of your own.

If you live in Australia and shop with me you will receive this tutorial bundle FREE! This tutorial bundle uses a range of products from the August – December 2021 mini catalogue. The theme that we used here is “Anything but Christmas”. Here is a sneak peek of the images that are featured in the tutorial bundle this month.

To offer additional inspiration, we have all created an extra project to share with you in this hop.

The WOW! of this card happens when you open it…..

If you would like to know how to make this card, place your order for the Whimsy & Wonder suite and you will be invited to join the Stamp Camp on Saturday during which we will demonstrate all the projects in this hop! You will also receive the tutorial bundle (with video instructions) and the card stock to make all the projects in the bundle. You won’t have your order in time for the Stamp Camp, but the good thing is you can go back and watch the presentations again whenever it suits you!

You may be starting here or have come from someone else’s blog – either way there is a list at the end of this post to help you move around all the different blogs and get many amazing ideas. We all have our country listed – so if you are looking for a demonstrator in your country, these demonstrators would love to look after you with your Stampin’ Up!® shopping or if you would like to join our Stampin’ Up!® teams.

September Suite Of The Month

If you don’t know what Suite of the month is, it is where we highlight One product suite ed each month. I hope these suites are on your shopping list because you will earn a free make and take kit when you purchase the designated suites. Then meet me in Zoom to assemble the kits while I demonstrate where all the pieces go. If you miss the Zoom social, a Youtube link will be sent to you so you can assemble the kits at your leisure.

In addition, I am collaborating with other demonstrators across the globe that will be sharing 2 projects each using the same product suite. We are anticipating that there will be at least 5 demonstrators participating each month. This means that you will get a minimum of 10 different ideas to use with the rest of your product suite by watching these videos. Although you will only get the kit for my make ‘n takes, you will be able to make all the other projects because you have purchased the suite! Much as we would like to buy everything in the catalogue, we also have to choose which are our favourite favourites, so the demonstrators can vary from month to month.

The next suite that we have chosen to show case in the Suite Of The Month series, is Tidings of Christmas. To purchase your suite from my online store, click here

Here is a sneak peek of the projects in this month’s bundle:

I will need some time to prepare your kit and post it to you. When I see an order come through with the designated Sui I will need some time to prepare your kit and post it to you. When I see an order come through with the designated Suite of the Month, I’ll ship your make and take kit to you automatically for that month.

You are welcome to order any and all of the suites on the same order as well so you can earn and spend all the host rewards. If your order stays under $250 (excluding shipping), please use the host code on the side when ordering.
