Dream Catcher card using Mini Embroidery Hoops

Dear Crafters,

Well, I’m back from OnStage in Sydney and boy, what an exciting catalogue is coming our way in June! You are going to love it and there are so many awesome new products, I don’t know what will be at the top of my shopping list, I want it all 🙂

Today I have a card for a friend who loves Dream Catchers and I had a couple of these Embroidery Hoops that I bought because they were cute but I didn’t know how to use them! Have you done that? Bought something and then struggle to use it?

I know the doily and the baker’s twine have retired, but I need to start using up some of these products before they retire next time. I keep buying and storing product away for a special card, but I need to stop and use them now…. lol

I cut the doily down to fit the mini embroidery hoop, as it was much bigger and then I added strands of baker’s twine and one of the cute tassels from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit (Occasions 2018 catalogue).

Stamparatus Storage with Monogram Tag

Dear Crafters,

I’m popping in this morning for this brief post, as I’m heading to Sydney this morning for the OnStage event tomorrow at Luna Park!

I won’t be able to share all the excitement until Tuesday when the spoiler alert ban is lifted, but I’m certain there will be lots of new product and gorgeous goodies in the upcoming Annual catalogue, a copy of which I will get my hands on tomorrow!

Today I share something I have created for Bev who is going to Sydney with me. We usually make swaps (card fronts) to take to these events to swap with other demonstrator friends, but I completely ran out of time with work being so busy and with Easter on top of that 😦

You may remember I posted earlier in the week with a different form of storage for the Stamparatus to sit on your desk, you can see it here if you missed it, but today I have this idea for travelling with your Stamparatus!

Luckily I managed to get my hands on a couple of these toiletry bags from Kmart which are the perfect size and storage idea to fit our new Stamparatus. I’m guessing there will be many others who rush out and purchase one, and they only come in black, so I needed to find a way to make them our own, and what better way than with a Monogram tag!

First of all, I die cut the 3rd largest die from the Lots of Labels Framelits and cut the shape from Shrink Plastic (or shrinky dinks), then punch a hole at one end. It’s critical you do this before heating and shrinking it! Next, stamp your images. I’ve used Basic Black archival ink for the large letter and Pumpkin Pie ink to stamp the heart from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set. Then let the magic begin as you heat it with your heat tool and watch it shrink!

Here’s a closer look.

and here is the toiletry bag open…. it actually could hold 2 Stamparatus if you had them, as an easier way to transport them to Workshops outside of your home!

and once I made Bev’s, I had to make one for myself, of course!  I love butterflies, so I stamped them in Bermuda Bay ink. The small mobile phone lanyards were purchased on eBay.

Heart of Happiness

Dear Crafters,

It’s getting exciting now, as many Stampin’ Up! demonstrators are heading away this week for the OnStage events around the country. I am heading to Sydney on Friday afternoon for Saturday’s event at Luna Park. We will be honoured to have Sara Douglass, CEO of Stampin’ Up! at our event, so we are very lucky to have her host our event.

I won’t be able to share any of the fun until Tuesday 10th April when the spoiler alert ban is lifted, but this event is where we get to see lots of new product that will be in the upcoming Annual catalogue. It is such an exciting time of year!

Today I share some more hearts from the Heart Happiness and Sure Do Love You Bundle in the Occasions catalogue. Even though Sale-a-bration is over for another year, the Occasions catalogue still runs through to the end of May!

I love how these stamp sets coordinate and can be used for so many different things, not just Valentines Day. Today’s card can be used for a Birthday or a thank you…. with the sentiment, Just for you, it can be anything you want it to be.

Heart Happiness & Sure Do Love You Bundle Stampin Up Occasions 2018 by Kate Morgan, Craft with Kate, Australia.

I love this colour combination of Powder Pink, Melon Mambo and Whisper White together. By just adding some simple layers, you can create a wonderful effect. The tiny hearts are stamped to create a more interesting background.

and that Decorative Ribbon Border Punch adds extra interest.

Stamparatus Storage for your craft desk

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a project that I have created to store my brand new Stamparatus in while it sits on my craft desk!!!

Yes, I got mine early in the first release, but never fear, it will soon be in the upcoming Annual catalogue to purchase. When you see it in action, believe me, it will be at the top of your shopping list. It is awesome!

Stamparatus storage using Stampin Up Delightful Daisy DSP 2018 by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstator, Australia.

The Designer paper is from the Delightful Daisy DSP pack and I hadn’t used it as the print is very bold and large, but I do actually like it and think it is a very happy design and makes me smile. So what better way to use it, than cover this box/storage for my Stamparatus. I just cut down the box that it came in, and covered it with the DSP.

Here is the back with the stand I made out of some of the cardboard backings which come with the foil sheets! Waste not, want not!!!

I cut it down to 6″ x 6″ and then scored one side at 2½” & 3½”. Using a pencil, I marked ½” from each scoreline.

Then I rotated 90 degrees and marked 1″ at the opposite end with a pencil on the top and bottom. From this mark to the v” mark cut both sides so you end up with a triangle type shape. Place the largest of the Lots of Labels framelits dies 2½” from the top, lining it up inside the centre of the scorelines. Place it in the Big Shot, but don’t run it all the way through, just about 1½” or so. Where you stop cutting with the framelit, use scissors to cut to the scorelines on each side, then you can fold on the scorelines and glue together.

Not sure if this makes sense, but you can probably see what I mean from the picture below.

Happy 5 Year Stampiversary to me!

5th anniversary celebration.png

Dear Crafters,

Today is my 5 year anniversary with Stampin’ Up! Wow, who would have thought that I would still be a demonstrator all this time?!! Certainly not me, but here I am, loving these amazing products as much as ever!

Why do I love being a Stampin’ Up demonstrator!? Here are a few reasons why:

  • the high quality of the products
  • everything coordinates; cardstock, accessories, stamps and dies. No more taking my projects to the stores to find a ribbon that matches the colours in my project!
  • Being a demonstrator, I save a minimum of 20% on every order
  • Being able to purchase products before they are released to the general public
  • Attending live events and trying new products before everyone else
  • I can order from the comfort of my home and have it delivered to my door!
  • part of the largest team in Australia, Art with Heart, who are so supportive, helpful and encouraging
  • the amazing friends I have made and continue to meet within our team and at live events
  • building a beautiful team, called Craftalicious, who I  share amazing times with
  • and most of all, sharing my love of craft with others

Well, that’s enough about me and my amazing journey so far. I hope I can continue to share it with you, or better still, join my team and it may just be the start of a whole new life for you too!

I want to share a couple of the Easter Treat Boxes that I’ve made for the kids!

This paper stack is 6″ x 6″ and one side has photographic images, like these delicious looking donuts! These 4 cards that I have made today, use only one piece of the designer paper, so you can create heaps of cards using just a small amount of designer series paper.

I have used Basic Black as my card base for a striking effect. Using coordinating colour card as a square behind the DSP brings the colours all together. along with the stunning ribbons, tied with a bow.

The coordinating stamp set, Picture Perfect Birthday, has great sentiments for using with this DSP…. like, treat yourself! Donuts sure are a treat and not something to have regularly but as a special treat!

Heart Happiness meets Springtime Foils

Dear Crafters,

Today is all about hearts, with the Heart Happiness stamp set, the Sweet and Sassy Framelits and the Springtime Foils DSP!

I have used Powder Pink, Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White as my colour combination.

Heart Happiness with Springtime Foils, Occasions 2018 Saleabration Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Independent Demonstrator Australia

I coloured the Springtime Foils DSP with the Powder Pink ink pad, swiping it across the paper to add the colour quickly. I cut it down to the required size and placed it on the bottom section of the white card. I stamped the small hearts with Powder Pink ink to the top half. I added some ribbon and a double bow, before gluing it to the front of the card.

All the hearts were stamped and die cut and then added across the centre of the card with dimensionals.

I added some basic pearl jewels for some added bling!

The inside of the card was also decorated with another heart at the top and a slice of the coloured Springtime Foils DSP at the bottom.
