August 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 Beauty Of The Earth. To purchase your suite from my online store, click here

Please order early in the month if you want to participate in the Zoom socials since the socials will be held on the third Wednesday of the month, 11:30-12:30am and 6:30-7:30pm, AEST.

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.

Here are the Suites being featured each month. Links to my online store to order these products are embedded. The page numbers refer to pages in the 2021-2022 annual catalogue unless stated otherwise.

August – Beauty Of The Earth, page 10-11. Different tree images with vibrant earthy colours.
September – Tidings of Christmas, pg 88-89. Cute stockings and friendly greetings to start making your Christmas cards
October – Gingerbread and Peppermint, pg 8-9 of the August – December mini catalogue. Fun images and a beautiful pillow box for your small gifts to be hidden inside.

These previous suites are still available with an order (although you won’t get the kit and Zoom social). Some of these these suites are all from the January – June mini catalogue and have retired.. The bundles have carried over to the annual catalogue, but the DSP is no longer available, so you will have to choose a substitute DSP

Hand-Penned, page 104-105. A whimsical collection in soft, pretty colours.
Simply Elegant, page 68-69. As the name suggests an elegant suite with (in my opinion) the best DSP in the catalogue!
Dandy Garden Suite, pages 24-27, a dragonfly punch in 2 sizes!
Hydrangea Hill Suite, pages 18-19, 2 shades of purple pearls and purple acetate sheets! (The pearls and acetate sheets did carry over)
Ice Cream Corner Suite, pages 48-49, a bright and warm color palette and ice cream cone punch!

I am looking forward to catching up with you and sharing my projects later this month.

Butterfly Bouquet Blog Hop – Part 2

Thank you for joining us for today’s blog hop. Today, I am joining a number of talented Stampin ‘ Up! demonstrators from around the world. For this hop, we are featuring Butterfly Brilliance collection, which is a pre-order item that will be available in the new annual catalogue. Unfortunately, the Butterfly Bijou DSP has sold out, but you can still make beautiful cards with the stamp and dies. If you don’t know what all the hype is about, you can watch my unboxing video here.

For this card, I have used tone-on-tone stamping butterflies, but I put the Basic White layer over the Petal Pink card base when I stamped. You can download a copy of the tutorial to make this card using the link below.

You are currently on Tracy Held’s blog – see the link below mine for the next blog in the hop.

Global SU Share Fair Blog Hop – Ice Cream Corner

We have a super awesome group of demonstrators sharing their talents in our private Facebook group called the Global SU Share Fair. We broadcast every other month with videos available on replay if you miss the live days. There are over 100 demonstration videos available on replay! Our next mini fair is on the 13th February. This will be short 10 minute videos featuring gist packaging ideas. The next big live day on the 13th March. Save the dates! This group is an exclusive group for our customers. If you are a customer and are not part of the group, please ask for an invitation.

Today we are CASEing the August 2020 Share Fair projects. We created a tutorial bundle with all of these fantastic ideas. I had a really hard time deciding which idea to CASE, but after looking through the bundle numerous times, I decided to CASE Maureen Rauchfuss’ fancy fold card. This is the 11th project in the PDF tutorial. I used the Ice Cream Corner suite for my project. Here is her card (first photo) and my version of it

The Ice Cream Corner suite is a really fun collection of products. If you love this suite and want more ideas for using it, be sure to check out my Suite Of The Month classes. Ice Cream Corner is our February suite.
