All My Favourites!

After over two years of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator I've taken the plunge and registered for my very first OnStage event! Every six months SU host a get together for demonstrators in different areas, and the photos and posts from people who have been always look amazing, so I'm very excited that I get to join in the fun at the next one! Demonstrators who are registered for the events also have the opportunity to apply to be Display Stampers - so this post is me throwing my hat in the ring for that, by sharing my three favourite cards, a scrapbook page and two 3D projects. Wish me luck!

'Beach Baby' Scrapbook Layout using Little Twinkle from Stampin' Up!

I scrapped! It's been a while, I haven't been inspired recently, but then the Little Twinkle collection arrived and it was the first thing that I wanted to do! I knew I had the perfect photo to go with the soft colours so I got stuck in, and this is the result. I'm pretty pleased with it :) The photo is of Mojo (who else?!) having fun in the waves on a beach in Pembrokeshire, Wales, where we spent a week in April this year. She absolutely loved spending time on the beach and was constantly in and out of the sea.

It's the first time I've used the Lined Alphabet stamp set too, and I really love it! I think it's going to be a really versatile set.

Happy Birthday Box Card using Colour Your Season from Stampin' Up!

I had a fab time earlier this week at a team training session with my lovely Upline and three other SU Demonstrators. We drank coffee, chatted and crafted, what could be better?! Julie, my upline, showed us how to make these gorgeous box cards using the brand new Colour Your Season stamps and dies. I'm pretty pleased with how mine turned out!


If you love this set as much as I do, don't delay! It's only available during August, and only while stocks last! The good news is that the stamps and die bundle qualify for a Bonus Days coupon, which you can use during September on some of the gorgeous Christmas products in the Autumn/Winter catalogue.

Thanks Card using Night of Navy, Bermuda Bay & Lovely Lipstick: GDP#149

I usually find the Global Design Project challenges great for sparking inspiration, but I have to admit that this colour combo had me stumped at first! Night of Navy, Bermuda Bay and Lovely Lipstick is not a combination I would normally put together, so I really had to dig deep for this one. I only had limited supplies in each colour, I had card and ink in Bermuda Bay and Lovely Lipstick, and the Night of Navy papers from the Neutrals DSP. Once I'd pulled those together I began to form an idea, and I decided to CASE a card I made for a previous GDP challenge - this Hello card is my most pinned card on Pinterest, so I must have been doing something right when I created it! I thought I'd have a go at recreating it in the new colour combination, and this is the result. Hope you like it!



Supply list: Varied Vases Stamp Set & Punch; Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies; Classic Label Punch; Bermuda Bay & Whisper White Cardstock; Neutrals Designer Series Paper; Lovely Lipstick & Tuxedo Black Memento Ink; Metallics Sequins Assortment.
