Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Occasions Catalogue/Sale-A-Bration

Hi Crafters

Can you believe I'm back with another Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop?!  We are an international group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators who love to share our passion for papercraft with you.  So, we are hopping again!

Our theme this time is showcasing the fabulous new Stampin' Up! Spring/Summer 2019 Catalogue which is brimming with crafty goodies for all occasions.  I have a clean and simple card but I'm kinda in love!  The Beauty Abounds Bundle could have been made for me - I adore butterflies.  

I started with a Crumb Cake card blank.  I used Merry Merlot cardstock and created a frame and inner square using the Layering Square Framelits Dies.  I cut four of the flourishes from the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies and added them around the frame.  I stamped the sentiment from Beauty Abounds in copper embossing powder and added a copper butterfly too.  I finished off with some copper metallic sequins.  I plan to stamp the second half of the sentiment inside  - "It's a million little things!".  

If you haven't got your copy of the new Spring/Summer catalogue, you can request one for free by sending an email with your postal address.  I'm very happy to answer any questions you might have too.

To keep hopping, head to Lisa's blog by clicking the arrow below.  If you get lost along the way, a full blog hop list is included at the end of this post.  

I hope you enjoy our showcase of the new Stampin' Up! Spring/Summer 2019 catalogue.  We hop on the first Friday of every month.  I hope you join us again for the next one.

Happy crafting,

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Memories and More

Hi Crafters,

I'm back with another Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop and this month we are showcasing the Memories & More products from Stampin' Up!.  

I've gone out of my comfort zone and made a scrapbook page.  I have done scrapbooking in the past but have neglected it more recently.  The Delightfully Detailed Memories & More card pack features 50 double-sided cards in two sizes.  

I found an adorable picture of my niece, Poppy, that was perfect for my project and whipped this page up in less than an hour.  It is pretty simple but I'm pleased with the finished result and plan to give this as a gift to my Mum and Dad.

I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut to 8.25" and matted an 8" piece of Crumb Cake on top.  I used the Delightfully Detailed Memories & More card pack to create accents around my main image which was layered with Whisper White cardstock.  I've stamped a sentiment in Rich Razzleberry from the new Well Said stamp set and added Poppy's name and age in my own handwriting on the left.  I used the striped stamp from the Incredible Like You stamp set to add the accents to the top and bottom edges.  I used Tear and Tape to secure my photo to the Whisper White cardstock and Liquid Multipurpose Glue for the remainder.  The shadow box frame is not a Stampin' Up! item.

I hope you'll make memories with us on our Memories & More Blog Hop!  To keep hopping and head to Lisa's project, simply click the Next arrow below.  

Don't forget that you can earn free products during Sale-A-Bration.  I've listed all the supplies used down below so you can easily shop my make.    

Happy crafting,

Stampin' Up! Spring/Summer Catalogue Launch - Favourite Five

Hi Crafters,

I hope you've all had a fabulous festive and are raring to get into the new year.  It's the most wonderful time of year for Stampin' Up! demonstrators and customers.  It's Sale-A-Bration or SAB for short!  For every £45 you spend between now and 31 March, you can earn a free Level 1 product.  If you spend £90, you qualify for a Level 2 product for free which includes a co-ordinating die set.  To view the SAB catalogue, simply click on the SAB image in the right-hand sidebar.  Here are a few of my favourites but I would love to know your favourites.  Leave a comment on this post or send me a quick email if you have any questions.    

Not only can you earn products for free but Stampin' Up! have also launched their Spring/Summer Occasions 2019 catalogue which is bursting with amazing products for all kinds of projects over the next few months.  An electronic version of the catalogue is available in the right-hand sidebar but if you would like a paper copy, please send me an email with your postal address and I'll pop one in the post to you free of charge.  

Now onto the new products!  I've whittled it down to my Top Five but there are so many more to collect.  These are in no particular order because I couldn't choose between them!

These dies also co-ordinate with a bumper stamp set called Well Said which features 51 cling stamps.  If you purchase any bundle you'll save 10%.

This bundle is a great starter for anyone new to die cutting.  However, the dies and stamps can also be purchased separately.  If you are interested in individual items, I've listed each item and bundle in the supply list below.  

Please let me know your favourites.  I'm sure I'll discover many more in the coming months.  

Happy crafting,
