There’s a lot of concentration happening here, however I think the mess on the table tells the full story!
We had heaps of crafting fun, chatter and laughter, as well as playing with some new goodies at my New Catalogue Launch over the weekend.

Here are the cards that everyone got to create.
Firstly a quick and easy card, just stamped but showcasing how beautiful the large magnolia stamp is, from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.
Everyone got to choose a different colour, so all the cards were a little different.

My card is in the colour, Flirty Flamingo.

Then the real creativity started to happen, using the Magnolia Lane Memories and More kit.

This was the sample I made, but again, everyone got to choose the Memories and More cards and elements that they wanted to use and put them together, so they all turned out very differently.
I love the way the Memories and More kits can be easily turned into beautiful cards, as well as scrapbook pages and pocket pages.  I have made a couple of those up as well and will share them with you in another post.

Happy stamping!

2019 – 2020 Annual Catalogue

StampinUpCatalog2019-533x640

Yes!  It’s here!
Are you as excited as I am?
So many gorgeous new things to get inspired by.
If you would like to have a look at the new catalogue online, you can do so by clicking here.
If you live in Australia, and don’t have a current demonstrator, but would like a copy of the catalogue, feel free to leave a message or send me an email, and I will send one out to you.
And here is a little inspiration for you, cards made with brand new products, or products that have carried over from the last catalogues.

First up, one of my absolute favourites from the catalogue, the Come Sail Away Suite, which you will find on pages 144-146 of the new catalogue.
I will be running a class using this one in July, so if you are local to me, make sure you book in for that one.  And I am looking at starting some Cards by Mail classes very soon, so stay tuned for that, too.

Another favourite is the gorgeous Designer Series Papers from the Perennial Essence Suite (Pages 106-108).  I just adore these papers, the colours and patterns, well, everything about them, they are totally gorgeous!

Next we have the Bird Ballad Suite, which is on pages 90-92.
The birds are so lovely for colouring!

These gorgeous little ducks are from the Fable Friends stamp set, which carries over from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.  And on the far left is some new Designer Series Papers from the Come Sail Away suite.  I love them, they are perfect for masculine cards.

If you would like to order any of the new products, you can do so by going to my online store.
Don’t forget that if your order is under $250 you can use the monthly Host code for June which is:  EFY37WNN
If your order is over $250 you get Host benefits all to yourself, and there are some lovely new Host stamp sets, one of which I will feature in a later post.

Happy Stamping!

New Catalogue Goodies

Today is an exciting day for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators, with the start of the pre-order for the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue.  It is a much anticipated day for all demonstrators, when we get to to order some of the new goodies so that we can prepare some samples and classes for when the catalogue is released in June.

There are just so many gorgeous new things in this catalogue that it really is difficult to choose a favourite, but I will share some of my favourites with you over the coming weeks.
So here is the first one, a must for those of us who enjoy making masculine cards.  The stamp set comes with a coordinating Die set, and some matching Trinkets.
Come Sail Away 1
The Stamp Set is called Sailing Home, and the papers are called Come Sail Away.  Love them and I can’t wait to play with them some more.

I hope you are getting some craft time in your day today.
Happy stamping!
