    2021 Wine and Cheese SAB Launch

    It’s Sale-A-Bration time!

    I was so fortunate to be able to hold an in-person New Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration launch on the weekend.

    I had a wonderful group of ladies come and enjoy some wine, bubbly, cheese and fruit platters while checking out samples, catching up and crafting.

    Everyone received a goodie bag with the new catalogues and some fun new products.

    Work stations open for business…

    Displays of fabulous new products from the new Mini-catalogue…

    You can’t have a launch with out crafting…

    Everyone got to play with new stamps, the mini cut ‘n’ emboss machine and other new product as they made three lovely cards to take home.

    Thanks so much for coming and Sale-A-Brating with me! 

    I’m looking forward to seeing you at classes.

    Merry Christmas from Stamping with aMac

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    I want to thank you for your support throughout the year, whether you shopped with me, came to classes or retreats, helped me prepare for events, liked and commented on my FB posts, gave me cards and gifts, it’s all helped with my small business and I really appreciate it.

    It’s been a challenging year in many ways but we made it!

    I’ve loved sharing and creating wonderful projects and memories with you through out the year.

    I will be taking a short break from 24 December – 6 January but if you need to order you can pop onto my online store any time.

  • Card-making Classes,  Christmas Cards

    Final card class for 2020

    For our final class of the year we made four Christmas cards and an ornament.

    For our first card we use the beautiful Snowflake Wishes bundle.

    This card was cased from Martin Stone.

    We used Pretty Peacock for the card base and the front as well. Snowflake Splendor ribbon is attached with a staple for the embellishment. There’s also a hint of Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper if you look carefully.

    I love the depth of the colour of the Pretty Peacock card stock. To finish the card off, we splattered it with Wink of Stella by flicking the end of the brush.

    I hope you like this card as much as I do.

    I found this card on Pinterest and cased it as well.

    I made a few changes, using what I had, but this is a lovely way to use the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper.

    The card base is thick Very Vanilla card stock and the greeting is from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set which is stamped on the Stitched Nestled Labels dies.

    Everyone loved using the new Stampin’ Cut and Embossing Machine (replaced the Big Shot) which we used to cut out some of the pieces.

    The Star Designer element and the ribbon finish off the card beautifully.

    This next card uses my design. It is a double easel card and I used thick Whisper White cut in half length ways for the main base of the card.

    For the remainder of the card I used Misty Moonlight cut slightly smaller but still length ways.

    Once again I used the Snowflake Wishes bundle and some silver foil for the snowflakes, as well as frosted and clear epoxy droplets for the embellishments.

    We stamped on the front part of the card and ran the rest through the Winter Snow embossing folder.

    I love the greeting, ‘May your season sparkle’… it’s kinda cute.

    For our last card we made this simple but elegant card using the window die out of the Snowflake Bundle.

    We heat embossed the greeting add a bit more style and texture to the card.

    I love the effect of this die creating a little window to peek through.

    The foil is embossed with the 3D Evergreen Forest embossing folder which just looks stunning!

    Our last project was a just for a bit of extra fun. Wade and I had to prune some branches off a gum tree in the back yard, so I thought that I could use a repurposed section of the branch as a base for Christmas decorations.

    I came up with this ornament to hang on a tree.

    I used the retired Dashing Deer Stamp, along with some Rhinestones (coloured with the Real Red Stampin’ blend pen) and used the beautiful Real Red sheer ribbon and some gold metallic trim from the Forever Greenery trim.

    I would love to thank all of my wonderful customers for your support by coming to my classes and shopping with me ❤️.

    It’s been a challenging year but we’ve made it.

    I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and I very much look forward to crafting with you in the new year.

    Happy Stamping,
    Angela

  • 2020 Craft Retreat,  Card-making Classes

    Stamping with aMac November 2020 Craft Retreat

    We had a wonderful weekend retreat of craftalicious fun at Bornhoffen!

    I had 26 beautiful ladies join me for a weekend filled with friendship, craft, fun, laughter and sharing.

    Bornhoffen PCYC is situated in the Gold Coast hinterland, a few km south of Natural Bridge. It’s surrounded by rolling hills and is such a tranquil setting.

    We held a fundraising raffle for Kidney Health Australia where prizes were donated by Stampin’ Up! as well as a few additions from a few ladies who attended and myself.

    We raised a whopping $540 in total – just amazing!

    It will be my pleasure to pass this donation on in honour of my dad, Franjo Jakupec, who passed away recently.

    The wonderful displays created by Caroline

    Check out the big smiles of our wonderful groups of crafters.

    A great time and good fun was had by all!

    Oh, and we have some celebrity news…

    Paula and Jennifer had an exciting start to the retreat when they stopped for a cuppa on the way… they saw the ‘Honey Badger’.

    Paula was soooo excited to get a few photos with him and it made for an exciting start to her weekend!

    I loved walking around and chatting to everyone and checking out what they had been working on. 

    The talent in amazing!

    I also love the generous nature of everyone, willing to share their ideas and projects, and help each other out. Here’s just some of the many projects that were created over the weekend.

    I want to say another big THANK YOU to all of you who came. Thank you to all of my wonderful helpers behind the scenes, before the event, and with set up and pack down.

    Thank you Maree, Teresa, Mel, Bree, Caroline, Lindsey and Gemma for your prep ahead of the event, Bree and Robyn with the set up, Bree and Mel for taking care of the raffle for me, Caroline for your wonderful display, and for your make and take, and Laura for your make and take.

    Huge thanks to everyone who helped with the pack down and clean up, especially Robyn and Maree!!!

    I really appreciate all of your help and support. I am blessed to have such wonderful friends in my life.

    My heart 💖💖 is full knowing that you all thoroughly enjoyed your weekend away.

    I’m looking forward to start planning our next retreat – Stamping with aMac Sale-A-Bration Retreat which will be held 12-14 March 2021.
