Join Stampin' Up with this fabulous "Share What You Love" bundle with 3 FREE gifts!

Hello everyone,

Today I'd like to tell you about the amazing deal that you can get by joining Stampin' Up! as a demonstrator. To do this, all you need to do is purchase the Starter Kit, which is always the best offer in the catalogue - you choose any products to a value of £130 and pay only £99, including FREE shipping. If you want to run a business, the starter kit also contains everything you need to get going like order forms and catalogues but there is no obligation to do this. There is NEVER any pressure to sell to other people, and in fact most people sign up as a demo just to get the discount for themselves. If you decide to be a hobby demo and buy products just for yourself, that is absolutely fine but there is always the opportunity of selling to friends, family and fellow crafters if you decide to. There is a minimum order amount (£275 per quarter before your discount) for you to stay as a demo, but if you decide you don't want to retain your demonstrator status you can just let it lapse and nothing will happen. You get to keep everything in your starter kit and just walk away.


Share What You Love from Stampin' Up!


But to make it an even better deal, at the moment, until 31st May, you could chose to include one of the fabulous bundles from the fabulous "Share What You Love" suite available as a pre-order, before the new catalogue comes out on 1st June. There are three bundles to choose from and each contains either one, two or three free items. 
Personally I would go for the "Gotta Have it All" bundlewhich retails for £118.75 and includes 3 FREE gifts. This bundle is so great because you get 2 sets of stamps, an ink pad, 2 card packs, a huge selection of 12x12 designer papers (some of which are pearlised), envelopes, an embossing folder and loads of different embellishments.

You could then make up the rest of your kits with some craft essentials like a black ink pad, white card, a clear block or adhesive.

Here is a complete list of what is included in the bundle

  • Love What You Do Photopolymer Stamp Set
  • Make A Difference Photopolymer Stamp Set
  • 40 sheets of Very Vanilla A4 Cardstock
  • 24 Sheets of A4 Share What You Love A4 Cardstock Pack in 4 colours
  • 24 Pearlized Doilies
  • 24 12"x12" Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper
  • Grapefruit Grove Classic Stampin' Pad
  • 10 yards of Rich Razzleberry 1/4" (6.4 mm) Velvet Ribbon
  • 100 Share What You Love Artisan Pearls
  • Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
  • Statement of My Heart Photopolymer Single Stamp
  • 40 Very Vanilla C6 Envelopes
  • Share What You Love Embellishment Kit
  • Kit includes:
  • * 4 large labels
  • * 8 small labels
  • * 8 yards Tranquil Tide Baker's Twine
  • * 8 yards pearlized thread
  • * 8 silver adhesive-backed roses
  • * 8 silver paper clips
  • * 8 Grapefruit Grove paper clips
  • * Designer box, 6" x 4-3/4" x 1" (15.2 x 12.1 x 2.5 cm)

I've listed all the products below so that you can see them all - click on any of the images to go through to my shop to see them in more detail - but please note you will not be able to purchase the items individually until 1st June - if you try you'll most likely get an error message! And sorry, but I can't list the "Statement of the Heart" stamp as this is only available in the kit and not individually.

Balloon Celebration birthday card with YouTube tutorial

Hi everyone,

I'm back today with another card made with the Balloon Celebration stamp-set and the coordinating Balloon Bouquet punch from Stampin' Up! There is also a video over on You Tube showing you exactly how I made it (scroll down a bit for the link!).


Balloon Celebration from Stampin' Up!

Using the stamp set with the punch makes it so easy to make these lovely little balloons. And there's my favourite embossing folder again - Softly Falling.

Balloon Celebration from Stampin' Up!

And you'll be pleased to know that nearly all of the products I have used will be available for at least another year. The only things retiring are the Tempting Turquoise cardstock and inkpad. Tempting Turquoise has been one of my absolutely favourite colours so I'm very sad to see that going. 


Balloon Celebration from Stampin' Up!

My video will give you more details of how I made my card including a couple of handy tips - one for how to stamp the balloons and another for how to tie the silver thread around the necks of the balloons. So have a watch HERE if you have time, or click on the image below.



If you watch the video and enjoy it, please think about subscribing to my channel - I only need a few more to reach 2000 subscribers!  

The measurements for the card are:
METRIC
Card blank 21cm x 15cm, score at 10.5cm
White panel 9.5cm x 14cm
Pink panel 9.5cm x 2cm
IMPERIAL
Card blank 8 1/4" x 6", score at 4 1/8"
White panel 3 3/4" x 5 1/2"
Pink panel 3 3/4" x 3/4"

Hope you like this card. Back tomorrow with another balloon birthday card.

Another pretty card with Sweet Soiree papers

Just popping in really quickly again today to show you the last card in my series using the beautiful foiled Sweet Soiree patterned papers. Have I saved the best until last? You decide.


Sweet Soiree DSP and Happy Birthday thinlits die

I absolutely love the simplicity of this card. Just a panel of patterned paper and a greeting cut from silver foil. 


Sweet Soiree and Happy Birthday thinlits die

The patterned paper has a greater concentration of silver dots around the edges and I've made the most of that in this design. I know this design will be just too simple for some, but I love it!

Don't forget these papers will be retiring at the end of May - grab them now while you can.

And if you'd like copy of the new catalogue, give me a shout - first batch is being sent out today.

Sweet Soiree meets Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Hi everyone,

As promised, I'm bringing you another sample of the cards I made when using the Sweet Soiree patterned papers. I think this one is one of my favourites.


Sweet Soiree and Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Once again, a very simple but effective layout. And don't you just love the font used for that greeting from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set? For this card I just layered up lots of layers. The central panel is built up from die cuts using the Stitched Shapes dies and the Layering Squares set of dies. 


Sweet Soiree and Happy Birthday Gorgeous

I've just added a few Enamel Shapes to finish off the card.

One more sample in this series to show you tomorrow.
