We had a wonderful Wine and Cheese new catalogue launch and Fund-raiser for Full Stop Australia (stop domestic violence).
Here’s some photos of our afternoon of crafty fun. 😊
Thanks so much to all who came despite the weather and those who couldn’t come but donated!
Thank so much to the wonderful ladies who were able to attend my event… and Keith was on his best behaviour all afternoon.
Everyone received a little goodie bag on arrival with a lovely selection of things to play with.
The bag was decorated with the ‘Awesome Otters’, which is a Sale-A-Bration freebie, and I stamped and coloured it with our Stampin’ Blends.
The little strip on the bottom of the tag was cut from the ‘Simply Marbelous‘ DSP which is also free with a $90 purchase.
We had a wonderful afternoon crafting, chatting, eating, drinking and fundraising!
Our raffle raised an incredible $200 for the Mater ‘Chicks in Pink’ Breast Cancer Research and support. Thank you so much for your generous donations for a wonderful cause.
We made three projects using products from the brand new mini catalogue.
Amazing Silhouettes Bundle
This card was made using the Amazing Silhouettes Bundle.
The ‘Distinktive’ stamp makes it easy to stamp a beautiful image! There’s so many possibilities for this bundle.
I love the shadow effect behind the greeting too. It looks fantastic with a contrasting colour! The iridescent rhinestones add the finishing touch of bling.
Hello Ladybug Bundle
This card was made using the Hello Ladybug Bundle. I chose Pumpkin Pie as the background instead of the conventional red for the ladybug.
The stamp and matching punch make it so easy to create super cute cards in no time. I love the texture added with the new Hive 3D embossing folder.
Here’s a little tip, check that your stamp is inked up properly before stamping, watch it ‘soak’ up the ink and when stamping let the paper ‘soak’up all of the ink too. This will give you a bolder image.
Ranunculus Romance Bundle
We use the gorgeous Ranunculus Romance Bundle for this card. I love these background stamps! The whole set is so pretty. The new Brushed Brass Butterflies embellishments are perfect for adding a finishing touch!
I chose Crumbcake for the card base and Pool Party as the second layer and Very Vanilla for the greeting strip.
I added texture by roughening up the edges and by using ribbon and dimensionals.
I had a wonderful display showcasing many new products!
Thanks to my friends Laura and Jackie for helping me fill the display board with their beautiful cards.
Shop Stampin' Up!
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.
I recently held a Virtual Retreat over a weekend and we made the following projects.
Each project came with an instructional video as well as a set of instructions with all the dimensions needed to make the card.
In this project we made this beautiful Joy Fold Card using the fabulous Prized Peony stamp set.
Project 02 - Quilted Card
This faux Quilted Card was made up of squares of DSP which were then stuck down and embossed to add extra texture.
Project 03 - Box With Four Note Cards
Four note cards fit perfectly into this mini Paper Pumpkin Box which decorated using the Prized Peony stamp set and dies.
Project 04 - Impossible Card
This card certainly had a ‘twist’… we created the Impossible Card!
Project 05 - Never-ending Card
The Never Ending Card will have its receiver enthralled. It was actually easier to make than it looked. It just took a while to cut all the pieces we needed…
Project 06 - Scrappy Strip Card
The Scrappy Strip Card was the perfect way to use up those bits and pieces we tend to ‘keep’. We created this simple but effective card.
Project 07 - Tri-Fold Card
I added my twist to this Tri- Fold Card 🙂
Project 08 - Pop Out Panels Card
This card gives you a lovely surprise when you open it and see the Pop Out Panels.
