Birthday, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Hope your day is on cloud nine

Dear Crafters,

Today, I am flying to Sydney for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Local event to be held tomorrow at Luna Park!  I am very excited, as this is the launch of the brand new Annual Catalogue, and only those demonstrators who attend the event, get to see the catalogue before anyone else. Also, I have a little secret to share… I am also one of the display stampers! Yes, I have been busy creating for the past couple of weeks with brand new catalogue items that no one has seen. I am very nervous about displaying my projects, but I am sure they will be okay 😉

When I return home, I will be able to share some pics of my displays with you, but not until Tuesday 11th April, so make sure you tune in then!

So today’s card with the sentiment Hope your day is on cloud nine, is kind of appropriate, as that is how we will be feeling tomorrow as we get that catalogue in our hands!!!!!

Lift Me Up Hot Air Balloons Masculine card by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Australia. Occasions 2017

I love the simplicity of this card and the colours coordinate so well. We made this in my class on Saturday and the ladies loved it.

The colours are: Dapper Denim, Crumb Cake, Soft Sky & Very Vanilla

I wasn’t sure about adding a bow to this card, seeing as it was masculine, so we added a little linen thread tied in a knot…. perfect!

What do you think of this card?

Popping Box Card

Dear Crafters,

Recently I saw an amazing Tutorial by Gemma Clarke, a UK Demonstrator, who made this awesome popping box card and I have been wanting to make it ever since! She also has a link to her YouTube videos in two parts on her blog.

I have used the stunning Lift Me Up Bundle from the Occasions catalogue. I just love the brightness of the colours in these papers.

As you can see, it is a long box that is decorated with the Carried Away DSP.

Pull the ribbon tab and out pops this box!!! Amazing, right?!!!

But the thing is, this popping box folds flat to fit inside the long box. It has a rubber band mechanism to make it pop!  If you want to see a short video of it opening click here, for the link on my Facebook page.

I also decorated the inside of the box.

On each of the 4 sides I decorated the popping box with stamps, DSP and die cuts.

Celebrate, Kids Cards, Occasions & Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!, Thinlits Dies

Happy 1st Year Anniversary, Deb

Dear Crafters,

Last week one of my gorgeous team members celebrated her 1st year with Stampin’ Up! and I sent her this card.

As you know, myself and a couple of my team went to Brisbane a few weeks ago for the OnStage Live event and these were some of the products I was fortunate to purchase on a premier pre-purchase order. You too can get your hands on these earlier than 2017 if join my team!!

This new designer series paper is called Carried Away and you can get it for free with any $90 order from January 4th 2017.

It coordinates with the stamps set, Lift Me Up and the Up and Away Thinlits.

Check out this balloon cut out with the thinlits. Isn’t it adorable?

Here is the inside on the card, which I also stamped with some more smaller hot air balloons in the coordinating Mint Macaron ink.

I also loved this sentiment and thought it was very appropriate for celebrating Deb’s 1st year anniversary!

I also added some clear Wink of Stella to the words ‘another year’ in the sentiment, but I’m not sure it photographed so well.

Memory Keeping/Project Life/Scrapbooking, Stampin' Up!

Falling in Love, 12″x 12″

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a 12″ x 12″ traditional scrapbooking layout using some brand new product which will be available in the Occasions 2017 catalogue! But if you can’t wait to get your hands on these stunning new products, why not join my team and you can pre-order these items in December (a whole month before anyone else)!!

As you know, myself and a couple of my team went to Brisbane a few weeks ago for the OnStage Live event for demonstrators. We had a ball and so I had to scrapbook a couple of photos from our time away. It was Kim’s first Stampin’ Up! event and she was totally stunned with the amount of product we received as well as the information shared and new friendships made. We certainly have many memories to giggle about, especially with Bev’s multiple mishaps, from forgetting her boarding pass for the plane, finding out she wasn’t registered when we arrived and losing her sunnies on the last day. She certainly kept us entertained!!!

We would also like to thank Judy (far right) for being our room mate for a few days.

These new designer series papers are called Falling in Love and yes, my favourite Blushing Bride colour makes its appearance. I think they made these papers for me!

The font was printed using my computer using Blushing Bride onto Very Vanilla card!

And the new Very Vanilla ribbon is just beautiful, especially teamed with the Very Vanilla Lace Trim we currently have in the Annual catalogue.
