Pootler Team Day Swaps Part One

Hi everyone,

After last Saturday's On Stage event and all the fabulous swaps I received which I showed yesterday, last Sunday I spent the day with around 60 other demos who are all in the same team as me - the Pootlers - headed up by my upline Sam Hammond Donald - at our team day. And as is traditional, at all these events where demos gather, once again, swapping was a big part of the day. These were my swaps:

On Stage Swaps - Stampin' Up!

And I thought you might like to see the swaps I received.

Swaps from Stampin' Up! On Stage April 19

Stampin Up On Stage April 19 Swaps

Hi everyone,

I hope you have a great Good Friday to look forward to! Today I am bringing you two (yes, two) videos to show you the swaps I received from On Stage last weekend. I split them up into two videos as there were so many of them, it would have made a very long video. The first one features all the cards and "flat" projects I received. Just CLICK HERE or on the image below:

                                    

And the second one shows you all the 3D projects I received. Just CLICK HERE or on the image below:

                                

Such a lot of great projects and loads of inspiration. I hope you enjoyed seeing them.

I'll be back tomorrow with the swaps from our team day.

Project Share Project Week - Week 16

Project Share Project Stampin Up
Hi everyone,

Welcome to another Thursday and the Project Share Project where I get to showcase projects made by some of my crafty friends. And before we get to the projects today I thought I would introduce you to the team. Last weekend we were all together at Stampin' Up!'s bi annual convention On Stage. We took the opportunity to get a photo taken and here we are.



That's me on the left, then Verity of InkyButterfly, Gez of Nigezza Creates, Heather of StampwithNellie and lastly Helzie of SlimmandStylish. 

I have four fabulous projects from these wonderful ladies for you today.

First up today in Verity at Inky Butterfly. 


Lilypad Lake Stampin Up


Verity has used the Lilypad Lake bundle to make this lovely card - this bundle has been on my wish list awhile and now having seen Verity's card, I have to have it!

Read more about Verity's project by clicking HERE.

Next is Gez who blogs at Nigezza Creates. Gez has been busy covering notepads to make them extra special.
All My Love papers Stampin' Up!

How fab is that?- Just love those papers! 

Read more about Gez's project by clicking HERE.

And then we have Heather, who blogs at StampwithNellie, and has been making a set of cards using the Delightfully Detailed laser cut papers.

Read more about Heather's card by clicking HERE.

And lastly for today is Helzie, who blogs at Slimm and Stylish. Helzie was one of the presenters at last weekend's On Stage. So brave to do that in front of nearly 600 demos! But she did such a wonderful job. And this is one of the cards she made using a brand new stamp set called Bloom and Grow which will be available in the new catalogue.

Jill and Gez Go Crafting - 17th April - Mini Albums


Hi everyone,

Do you like the new temporary cover photo. This photo was taken last weekend at our team day on Sunday. Can you see how much fun we are having?

Our team leader, Sam, made me smile when we were talking about this regular feature. She said that the title made her think of the Famous Five books and that she hoped we were having lashings of ginger beer (hopefully older UK readers will understand - not sure about others!) 

Any way, on to today's projects! This time I have decided to focus on one of Gez's specialities. She really is the queen of mini albums and has made loads if you look back through her blog and YouTube channel. The ones I have chosen today use current papers which will only be available until 3rd June or while stocks last, so if you like them, do not hang about!

The first one today uses the lovely Garden Impressions papers. The front cover....

And inside.....


This next one uses Tranquil Textures papers. The front cover.....


And the inside....



And the last one for today uses the Share What You Love papers. The front cover.....


And the inside...



All of these mini albums look very complicated to make - they have loads of little pockets, fold out sections etc. However if you follow Gez's detailed instructions you will have no problem! Do pop over to her blog and You Tube channel to see more. She even has an online class which you can purchase for a small fee to make your very own album. 

Hope you've enjoyed seeing these projects.

Back soon,

Want to see all my FREEBIES from Stampin' Up! On Stage?

header_OnStage2016_demo_ENG

Hi there crafters,

As a lot of you know, last weekend I was lucky enough to spend last weekend with almost 600 other demos at Stampin' Up!'s corporate event, called On Stage. This is a Bi Annual event at which we get to meet up with our crafting buddies, see presentations from a range of Stampin' Up! staff and other demos as well as seeing the new catalogue and "playing" with some of the new products. Of course one of the highlights is that we get a lot of free "stuff" and I thought you might to see my haul! 

On Stage April 19 Stampin Up

Not a bad collection huh? I've made a video to show everything in close up. Just CLICK HERE or on the image below.


Here are a few of my favourites in close up. First up, my name badge and lanyard :

Pootlers Team Stampin Up


The ribbons at the bottom of the name badge signify the level I'm at (Silver) and the team I'm in - Pootlers - this ribbon was a special gift from Sam my team leader.

Next the gorgeous tote:

Update to the Retiring List - Don't Panic!!



Hi everyone,

The publishing of the Retiring Lists yesterday caused a little bit of confusion and consternation so I'm here to clarify things. Some stamp sets appear on the list but only because the format is changing. Some will not be retiring but will still be available in a different format - cling instead of clear mount or wood. So there will no longer be any clear mount or wood mount sets in the new catalogue but some "carry over" sets will be available in the new cling format.

Just click on this link to see a list of all the stamp sets which will be leaving us in wood mount or clear, but carrying over in cling.

 Hope that helps to clarify a little!!

Just a very quick post to let you know that the retiring list has just been posted in my online shop. This list details all the products which will be retiring from the current Spring Summer catalogue and the Annual catalogue. 

The most popular products sell out fast, so don’t delay. Remember this is while stocks last! If anything from this list sells out between now and 3rd June, it will not be available again. 
There are a lot of products being retired (to make way for all the new amazing products in the 2019n Annual Catalogue) - bundles, punches, dies, stamps, ribbons, embellishments and of course, all our papers retire every 12 months, so stock up on those too!
