Today I wanted to share with you another NEW product that Stampin’ Up! have released in the new Catalogue and that is their planner.
It comes in a Kit form so you can put it together in the configuration that works best for you.
As you can see there is a lot in the Kit
This planner really excited me when I first heard about it because not only is it beautiful, its easy to use and I knew I could get a lot of use from it. I love the month at a glance as I can see quickly what I have planned and then the week on a two page spread allows me to break it all down to tasks. All my tasks I have colour coded for example if its written in Purple then I know its a business task, if in red then a personal task. This allows me to see at a glace what I have planed for my day.
You could also use your planner to make notes about activities/holidays etc to use in your Memory Keeping Albums – Stampin’ Up! Memories and More.
All the pages are a good quality paper so you can even stamp on them and the planner comes with stickers to decorate your pages or highlight events. There are also Pocket pages to add photos, post it notes to add those extra notes on and 2 pocket sleeves to add shopping list or cards to be sent…..there is so much in this planner
I’m sure you will love it…..Here is a video to tell you more about this fantastic product.
If you are interested in ordering one of these Planners for yourself go to my Store HERE
Guess what you can also purchase a Refill Kit that has everything in it except the binder
Today I thought I would share with you a video by Stampin’ Up! on one of the best tool you can every by or invest in….
I say invest because its not a cheap item, it is a BIG ticket item…but it is worth every cent.
The video will tell you about how the Big Shot works and the many accessories that go with it. If you CLICK on the picture above it will take you to “My Shop” where you can purchase yours today if you live in Australia.
To give you a little hint…with the soon to be released Annual Catalogue there will be a lot more dies available to go with some of the new Stamp sets and having this tool will save you time on Fussy Cutting. Some of the cards I have created using the Big Shot are…
Sorry this wasn’t done and posted on Friday….it has taken me a little while to get up the nerve and make this video. i have made a few now but I’m always concerned about getting it all right and this one I managed to do in one take….Woo Hooo!
This Video is on the card I post earlier in the week, so here is a reminder of what it looks like.
I hope you all had a wonderful and Blessed Easter.
And not too many Easter Eggs!
Here in Australia we also have school holidays at the moment and over Easter my boys and I (my husband had to stay home because of work), traveled to Mudgee to visit my parents. My father turned 80 last February and we hadn’t had a chance as yet to celebrate.
It was a lovely day, lunch at a beautiful Winery with family and friends to help celebrate.
The Video I want to share with you today is another by Stampin’ Up! highlighting one of their many Kits. This one is from the Occasions Catalogue on page 13..Its a fun little kit making up into 12 cards, 4 each of 3 designs and 12 Gift Tags.
Now this Kit does not include the stamp set required, Birthday Bright, nor the ink pads and adhesives.
As well as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest.
I find Andrea’s cards fresh, bold and exciting.
What does she offer-
Great Tutorials Videos and PDF
and great expertise!
The Video I have for you today is…. Butterfly Thanks
I love the way Andrea does her videos, all the instructions are very clear and concise.
This card involved the technique of sponging and blending of the colours, using both Sponge Daubers and Stamping Sponges.
I like seeing the Stamp-a-ma-jig being used even when using the Photopolymer Stamps, as I find this tool still the best way to line everything up. Rather than leaving it to seeing through the stamp, because knowing me I would have problems lining up the stamp with the image causing a double image.
On the Blog not only is there the video but down loadable instructions.
Now, I just had to CASE this beautiful card myself….I love Butterflies and these colours are stunning.
I found this card a fun and easy card to do.
I didn’t have the Sentiment Stamp used on this card so I used one of the Sentiments from “Mixed Boarders”
Having a look through some videos by Stampin’ Up! and I have come across this one on “Marbling”
Have you ever tried this?
I haven’t …..so I thought why not have a go.
Now for this you need Shaving Foam NOT Shaving Gel….Thank you boys!
One of my sons had left a can so I didn’t have to wait until tomorrow and a visit to the shops.
So I chose 3 colour in the Re-Inkers..
Sprayed some foam on to a container lid I had lying around dropped a few drops of each colour into the foam. I then ran a stick I had up, down and across ways per the video and laid the Thick Whisper White card stock on top. Press down lightly, then lift off. Scrape off excess foam and leave to dry.
I suggest letting it dry before rubbing off any left over foam as it may smudge when wiping.
Later I will make a card from one of these and post it here….why don’t you give it ago I would love to see what you come up with..
