February Suite Of The Month

The January to June 2021 mini catalog and Sale-A-Bration 2021 brochure should have arrived in your snail mail box. It’s filled with lots of awesome paper crafting products that you will need! (This is not about wants, it is needs!) If you haven’t received your catalogue yet, please let me know and I will arrange to get one to you. If you haven’t seen it, and want to have a browse now, you can view the online version here. Make yourself a cup of your favourite drink (hot or cold) and get your wish list started.

I have chosen 5 product Suites that will end up on my shelves because of their unique punches, cute snail mail images, splashes of colour or because ice cream is the theme. Yes, ice cream has it’s own suite!!! We usually are in the opposite season to any seasonal products in the mini catalogues, but this time we got summer and ice cream!

One product suite will be highlighted each month starting in January. 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! There will be at least 10 videos each month. These are all exclusive to this group and won’t be available anywhere else.

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, 9:00-10:00am and 6:30-7:30pm, AEDT. February classes will be on Wednesday 17th February.

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. During February, you will also earn Sale-A-Bration rewards on your orders. For each $90 that you spend you will earn a level 1 reward, and $180 get you a level 2 (or 2 level 1 rewards). Reach $500 in sales (excluding shipping) and you will also earn the Sale-A-Bration host only stamp set, Punch Party. 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 will be available on January 5th, after the catalog goes live. All page numbers refer to the January-June 2021 catalogue.

February – Ice Cream Corner Suite, pages 48-49, a bright and warm color palette and ice cream cone punch!

March – Hydrangea Hill Suite, pages 18-19, 2 shades of purple pearls and purple acetate sheets!

May – Oval Occasions Bundle, page 65, 2 sizes of ovals in one punch! Build your own suite to reach a minimum of $90 in orders (excluding shipping).

If you missed the January class, you can still purchase the Snail Mail Suite, pages 54-55 and I will send you the links to the video tutorials

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

Butterfly Beauty Thank You Card

Thank you for visiting today as I join other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world in playing along with our friend Kylie’s International Blog Highlights to share cards that show appreciation.
The theme for this hop is “Thank you”. Many people forget those simple words. I have seen people’s days brightened because someone said a simple thank you to them.
Show your appreciation to people in your lives who have inspired you, helped you or supported you by sending them a thank you card or project.

I made this card using the Butterfly Beauty dies with the Rainbow Glimmer Paper. The best part of using this glimmer paper is that depending on where you place your dies, the colours of the butterflies will change. Use a different colour for the base of your card and you will get multiple looks using the same design. I used adhesive sheets on the back of the balck card stock before I cut out the top layer details of the butterflies. This makes it much easier and far less messy to stick the intricate die cuts. For the sentiment I used the Many Messages bundle. The stamp is ONE big stamp that has a whole heap of different sentiments on it. You can then cut them all out with the die. I would use most of the sentiments, so I have stamped a few and cut them out. I keep them close while I am crafting. I have a quick look through and pick the one that suits the card that I am making. The backing for the sentiment is the die cut on Magenta madness card stock. I cut it in half and then layered the two halves behind the sentiment.

If you like this card, please vote for me by clicking on the button below.

True Love DSP thank you card

Thank you for visiting today as I join other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world in playing along with our friend Kylie’s International Blog Highlights to share cards that show appreciation.
The theme for this hop is “Thank you”. Many people forget those simple words. I have seen people’s days brightened because someone said a simple thank you to them.
Show your appreciation to people in your lives who have inspired you, helped you or supported you by sending them a thank you card or project.

I constantly marvel at the peculiarities of human nature. When we have coloured DSP, we complain about the colour combination or would like it a bit more monochrome. Along comes black and white images, and we immediately need to add colour! Here I added spots of colour using Highland Heather, Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I haven’t mastered the art of beautiful, complex colouring, so I go for quick and easy!
