Cor the sun is shining it really feels like Summer but today we are doing Christmas because the all new Stampin' Up! Seasonal Catalogue goes live today!!

Here is a look at the Christmas Holiday Planner I have designed this year:

Stampin_Up

I'm absolutely loving it and had great fun designing and making it too. It's made to fit perfectly inside one of Stampin' Up! Wood Mount Cases and contains over 16 inserts plus a pull out four month calendar. Oh did I mention there's a place to store receipts, a sticky note pad and a pen too?

Stampin' Up! Simply Pressed Clay Video Tutorial

Hello - as promised I am back with a new video tutorial for you. This one shows you how to make simple embellishments using Stampin' Up! Simply Pressed Clay. Enjoy:


I loved making these. Here are four photos to show you how easy they are to make too. Once you've popped the Simply Pressed Clay out of the Molds - set aside to 'air dry'.

Stampin_Up

 Mix together a few drops of Stampin' Up! re-inker (I've used Pool Party here) with Crystal Effects and paint onto your Simply Pressed Clay.

Stampin_Up

Wait patiently whilst it dries!!

Attach to your projects, here I've used silver plated rings and earring studs.

Stampin' Up! Mosaic Madness

Right - the weather forecast couldn't have been more wrong this weekend so far. Yesterday we were issued with a weather warning for flooding and it was a beautiful day. Today it's supposed to be bright sunshine and whilst it's dry and warm, the sun ain't shining! I think I'll just stick my head outside in future to do my own forecast!

So yesterday was not only Blake's friend Lola's Birthday but it was also my lovely friend Erin's big day too. She very kindly took Blake to Lola's party for me and this is the Birthday card I'd made for her:

Stampin_Up

It's a 7" x 5" card in Crumb Cake (yes folks, Jelly is back in the Crumb Cake zone) and the design is one I cased off Pinterest. My colour combo is Pool Party, Pink Pirouette and Pistachio Pudding. Love the Pistachio Pudding Ruffled Stretch Ribbon

The flower is from Flower Shop which is a bit fab as you can buy the stamp set as a bundle with the Pansy Punch saving you money - always a bonus to have saved money to spend on something else - like the lush In Color Boutique Details

This is a right mish mash of a card actually, the sentiment is from Happy Day, other sets used are Bright Blossoms and Summer Silhouettes.

Can't loiter today as hubs is on his way home from work early, so pleased as he worked all day yesterday and didn't think he'd be back until late today either.

Looking forward to tomorrow as I'll be crafting all day with my teamie Louise.

Stampin' Up! Wishing You

Aaaw, my neighbours little girl is celebrating her fourth Birthday today and Blake is at her party right now. I'm supposed to be there too but Zac has come down with 'boy flu' is there a child version of man flu I wonder?) and so I'm stuck home being nurse!


I had fun making a card for Lola using one of the Christmas stamp sets from the new Stampin' Up! Seasonal Catalogue called Wishing You. Just goes to show it doesn't have to be for Christmas:

Stampin_Up
Stampin' Up! Wishing You stamp set.


The photo above shows you a close up of the stamped part of the card. I stamped the Wishing You image four times in Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Crush, Pink Pirouette and Pool Party, then cut them out and layered up using Dimensionals to add depth.

Here's the full card:

Stampin_Up
Stampin' Up! Wishing You stamp set
It's a 6" square card in Crumb Cake. The letters and number are die cut using the Big Shot and dies from the current Stampin' Up! catalogue.

Righto, I'm off to cuddle Zac, back tomorrow.

Stampin' Up! Color Me Christmas - Again

Just over a week left of the school holidays - should I be shouting for joy? Yes but only because Blake starts full time in Reception in September so for me that means more time to focus on my Stampin' Up! business. Which is lucky as the new Seasonal Catalogue launches in just one week - yey!

Whilst I can't get to the room of craft today as doing fun stuff with the boys, I have another project sneak peek to share with you:

Stampin_Up

As you can see I've been having lots of fun with my Stampin' Up! Markers. If this is your thing - watch this space as I'll be announcing my new class schedule shortly and this cute fella will be featured in one of them. If you can't wait - scroll down a few posts to see details of my Christmas all day class coming in October.

Stampin' Up! Color Me Christmas

Cor what a hectic day, if it's one thing I don't enjoy it's taking the boys shopping for new school uniforms and school shoes, but we survived - just!

So whilst no time for crafting today I can share with you another sneak peek from the new Stampin' Up! Seasonal Catalogue. Also - UK dudes - please don't say I've spelt 'color' incorrectly as it's the American spelling from our catalogue!

Stampin_Up

This project will feature in an upcoming class so I won't spoil by showing the finished item just yet!

Also feel a very 'parental' need to share this:


Zac sat down with his dry wipe pad today and did this. He's never written his surname before so I had to take a pic - proud Mummy. Not so sure of the pics though, think I look a bit like a monkey. I might get a bit paranoid about the size of my ears now!

Stampin' Up! Cycle Celebration

Aah - actually managed a spot of peace and quiet time today. I took the boys to a soft play centre for two hours and they entertained themselves quite nicely. They even let me do a spot of crafting when we got home. I did have Zac in the room of craft as my 'helpful' assistant. For some reason he preferred to be known as 'Mummy's card inspector'. Hmmm!

Well he assisted in inspecting the set of three cards I made and decided they were 'quite pretty really'. Here they are:

Stampin_Up

I turned to my new Stampin' Up! Colour Coach to get my combo of Crisp Cantaloupe, Pink Pirouette and Soft Suede and inked up Cycle Celebration stamp set. I love making sets of things and could have carried on all afternoon!

The first card features the cute mini soda bottle stamped in Soft Suede and then coloured with Markers. I used the Circle Framelits to cut them out and also the Finishing Touches Edgelits to create a pretty trim.

Stampin_Up

Here you can see my dodgy colouring (Jelly forgot to wear her goggles again) and the Self Adhesive Pearls popped on for bubbles.

Stampin_Up

My next card is a 4" square using Soft Suede for the base. Kept it simple, again using the same Edgelit Die and Linen Thread. The stamp has been punched out with the Large Oval and Decorative Label Punch.

Stampin_Up

Here's a close up - you can see I've used Dimensionals to give depth to the layers.

Stampin_Up

Finally a tall card featuring the cycle from the set.
