Fun party - Petite Purse

This is such a fun thing to make and decorate up at a party... these cute little handbags just make you happy looking at them don't they?

The Summer Smooches paper has been released and is featured on page 165 of the main catalogue.

Technique: Faux Metal - Impression Embossing


Oh don't you love the Faux Metal technique... it just looks so cool!!! This is the technique used on page 105 of the catalogue.











See how to do it here:


Techniques: Inking Embossing Folders & Ink Splatters

In the catalogue on page 62 is this Cherish the Moments Brag Book there are a couple of techniques used, the inking up of the Embossing Folders gives just a subtle impression of the detail of the embossing folder... then the splatters can add interest. You can use these techniques together on the one project, or separately on different projects.


See how here:


Reverse Masking Technique

This is such a sweet technique.... you forget about this until you see it used again, it's so much fun though.... Choose different shapes and different colours.... they all look so lovely.


This is how to do it:

Tea for Two Gift Box


This is a great Stampin' Up! gift idea which is simple but yet beautiful which I've been asked to run as a class.

Check it out:



Creped filter paper flower tutorial



Most of you have asked me how to made the crepe filter paper flower from page 6 of the mini catalogue... it's so easy and just so beautiful isn't it? Of course you could sponge on some color when you were finished too.

This flower needs at least 4 of the circle creped filter papers.... the more filter papers used, the fuller looking flower.

Have a look here:



The creped filter paper is thicker than tissue paper but thinner than filter paper.... ideal for our paper crafting needs.

The Creped Filter Paper pack is just $4.95 and can make several flowers. It is made using the Floral Frames Framelits which I have to say is on my new Wish List..... love it.

If you would like to order these or anything else please see my Stampin' Up Store:

Have Fun, Get Creative, Make Money

Support your craft or Run your own business... 

Stampin' Up! provides a fabulous opportunity for you to work from home, doing something you love, while you earn some income in a very family friendly way. Put those skills you have into practice with your own business .... or you can also join just for yourself to support your own crafting habit with discount purchases.... the option is yours.... that's what I love about what I do.... when I just wanted to get all of my wish list for a minimum of 20% off it was perfect... when I was ready to leap in and start running my own classes and generate an income from doing what I loved... it was still perfect.

Low start up costs - just $169 to get your starter kit (you choose $235 worth of products) and you get free business resources and catalogues with your starter kit, along with free postage.

Low risk. If you decide after a while it's not for you, there are no exit fees or penalties. 

Flexible Schedule

Whatever your time goals are for your business, and this is your business, so you can put as much (or as little) time into it as you’d like, it's totally up to you and what works in your life.

Support 

Not only am I always there for you to phone or email, there is an abundance of home class and workshop ideas available on our consultant only site and video training is available on so many different topics. 
I’d love to have you join the team and am here to help and support you. I send out my immediate downlines the actual project ideas that I use at my own workshops and Make and Takes at no cost. You will also have access to Stampin' Connection - the exclusive online community for Demonstrators only.
The other thing that I just love is that we get to see the new catalogue products before they are released and even pre-order the brand new things.... awesome!!
