Sale-a-Bration Countdown Day 3

Little busy yesterday for crafting as had to make sure house was  clean and tidy for hubby to come home from hospital and it took ages for them to get his medication together, but I found time this morning to do a little crafting and here is what I came up with.

This card is using my favourite flower stamp set at the moment Vintage Vogue, these flowers are easy to stamp and I cut them out when visiting hubby in hospital whilst he was dozing!

They were stamped using Bashful Blue and then rock n rolled with Marina Mist.  The papers as you can see are from the  Everyday Enchantment collection....and you only have until tomorrow to place a qualify order of £45 or more to earn these or the stampsets from this years Sale-a-Bration Collection.

Mustn't forget to mention the lush ribbon that I used is Lucky Limeade and the pearls for the Centres of the flowers.

Scrapbookin' On Sunday

A little later than usual due to hubby in hospital but I couldn't let you down and not post this Sunday so its going to be rather quick one.

Here is one of the pages that my ladies created at our monthly scrapbooking class this month as I mentioned in my sneak peak earlier this month  not a "Spider" can be seen!!

This was the simpler of the 2 layouts, we used the Round Tab punch for our hidden journaling, the Petite Pennant Builder Punch for the bunting and the title was cut from the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet.

Be sure to pop back next week to see the other layout........

My journey as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, why not come and join me???

Here's a quick card that I made this morning as I am celebrating not only my 3rd year as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator but welcoming my newest downline.....    

Michelle to my team of "Paper Daisies"

When I started on my journey with Stampin' Up! I thought it would be great for me to share my love of crafting using these fanatastic products that I had just found (no more hunting around for things to co-ordinate with each other) with my friends whilst at the same time funding my crafting habit.

Each Stampin' Up! Demonstrator structres their business to meet their goals and to fit around their commitments, the only thing that we all have in common is the Love of the Products!

The real factor that made me take the intial plunge was that if I decided that it wasn't for me, I could stop with NO penalties.... no having to give back products that I had earned through their reward programmes or paying back the difference on products purchased at discounted prices.

I have since taken my journey with Stampin' Up! further by running home parties, workshops and offering classes in both Scrapbooking and Card Making.

The Stampin' Up! Starter kit is amazing value - you goodies worth more than £250 for just £119. It contains everything you need to start your business, whatever  way you decide to take your journey with Stampin' Up! It is customisable so you can make sure its full of your favourite products.

What is more, if you join my team before next Friday (30th March) at 2pm, Stampin' Up! will give you another Stamp Set worth up to £44.95. A brilliant bonus to get you off to a great start.

Whenever you join my team you will get a welcome pack from me along with as much support as you need to make your journey with Stampin' Up!

What would you like to do with your Journey with Stampin' Up!

Email and lets get you started on your journey

Frank and I have been invited to one of his workmate's weddings in June so what great excuse that was to purchase  Stampin' Up!s  Marry Me stamp set in the Spring Mini Catalogue. 

This set comes with sentiments as well so you can stamp them inside your card and not have to worry about them, here I've used one of them on the out side as well.

I'm not sure if you can see from this photograph but the bride and groom are actually in 2 halves.
There top half is in  one of the Designer Frames Embossing Folder and there lower halves I cut out and stuck under this an on top of the card stock that I had put through the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.

The Marry Me stampset is only avaliable until the end of April, so make sure you don't miss out and place your order soon.

Benefits of Hosting a Stampin' Up! Party / Workshop

Today I am goint to explain more about  How the Hostess Pounds work?

Hostess Pounds can be spent on the items in the front section of the catalogue pages 8-12. This section features exclusive stamps sets or designer paper  which can only be earned when hosting a workshop/party or joining a Stampers 10 group.

Each product in the hostess section will have a hostess value next to it. This will indicate how much of your pounds you will spend if you select that particular set.

The great thing is, if you were to select stamp sets that total over £30 hostess pounds for example, you can still own them  by paying the additional £5 after your £25 free hostess pounds are taken off (if you only reach the first level). How great is that?!

And if your party sales go over the £300  you can get an item for HALF PRICE, and during Sale-a-Bration you get to choose another item from that collection too.

If you click this link here it will take you through to the Main Idea Book & Catalogue were you will get a full break down of the Hostess Pounds and a chance to  look at the stamp sets on line should you not have your own copy.

On booking your Workshop/party with me I will send you your own copy of the Main Idea Book & Catalogue or if you would just like order your own copy of this the cost will be a  Special Price of £3.00 plus P&P until the end of March. (usual price charged is £4.95 plus p&p)

Scrapbookin' On Sunday

Happy Mother's Day to all!!!!!!!!

This Sunday I am going to share with you a layout that was done when I went to my "Scrapping Retreat"  last October.

Where I took part in  several challanges  which included a "Swap a Kit" but a "Swap a photograph" this really interested me especially as the photograph's  I put in were ones I had had taken a year a go but never got around to scrapping......didn't seem right

So now you will see my "mug shot" in a layout created by Suzanne using the Cheerful Treat Designer Papers, which are avaliable as a "Hostess Spend"

The accessories were from Suzanne's own stash.

Vintage Vogue Flowers

As promised here is the finished project using those Vintage Vogue rock 'n' roll flowers.

As the flowers where rock 'n' rolled using Pretty in Pink and Rose Red, I chose Pretty in Pink as my main colour theme using cardstock and matching Satin Ribbon. I added a Pearl to all the flower centres and the leaves are made using the Little Leaves Sizzlit Die (a Stampin' Up exclusive) in Wild Wasabi.

The basket although is not a Stampin' Up! die it's made using Soft Suede and Crumb Cake cardstock.

And I added the sentiment from the Happiest Birthday Wishes hostess set, the ladies that made this in my classes added a Happy Mother's Day sentiment........but I can't post mine on here just in case she's peeping.
