    You’re Lovely

    Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop with the Latte Girls. This week we are sharing ways to tell friends “You’re Lovely”

    Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls

    You’re Lovely

    Yes … you are … well I think you are!

    There are so many different ways you can thank people, tell them you care or to simply tell them ‘You’re Lovely’. Today I’m using the All My Love Suite for my project …

    My project today was inspired by the sweet little Pillow Boxes project in the Sale-a-bration Catalogue. Actually that little picture inspired Sunday’s class.

    The All My Love Suite is such a delightful suite to create with and creates such lovely projects.

    This sweet gift box is made quickly with one of our Kraft Pillow Boxes. I’ve added a strip of the gorgeous All My Love Designer Series Paper and added a panel of the Lovely Lipstick Foil sheet available as a free Saleabration reward.

    Today’s card is designed from the sweet pillow box ..

    I took a Crumb Cake Card Base and stamped the flower in Sahara Sand for a soft watermark type effect. I’ve added a strip of the same Designer Series Paper and a panel of the Lovely Lipstick Foil Paper behind.

    The tags I’ve used on my projects are from the Sweet Pins & Tags pack from the How Sweet it is Suite. They are gorgeous and all have a shimmery holographic type border on them. Such sweet tags to use on any project!

    Now it’s time to hop along and see what the Latte Girls have created for you today ….

    I do hope you enjoyed all the projects today and they’ve inspired you to create with this gorgeous suite.

    Thanks so much for stopping by and see you latte …

    Home Decor SU Style Blog Hop

    Good Morning! Bright and early for you today to share with you my projects for the Home Decor SU Style Blog Hop.

    Home Decor SU Style Blog Hop

    Today I have a couple of projects we’ve made lately in class that were designed to pop on display or to give as gifts.

    My first frame was created using the butterflies from the Botanical Butterflies Designer Series Paper …

    This was quite easy to make and makes a sweet gift. The frames were not expensive either – just $4 from Kmart which makes this project an affordable gift.

    This past weekend I had my Lasting Lily Class and these flowers are perfect for another frame ..

    The Lily looks so lovely in Highland Heather dont you think? The leaves were done in Pear Pizazz.

    Saleabration Coordination

    Now if you thing this is lovely but dont like all the fussy cutting that would be involved. Dont despair – we have framelits coming in March with the Saleabration Coordination special. Actually, we’ll have framelits for a few of the Saleabration Stamp Sets in March! I cant wait!

    Here’s another of the Lilies framed …

    Now this one would make a perfect Wedding Gift wouldnt it? You could even make a card to match!

    I do hope you like my little framed items. They are going to adorn my shelf for a week or two until I can deliver them to some special ladies. I cant say anymore or I’ll give it away.

    Did you know you can get both the items I used in my frames for free? Yes during Saleabration you can get the Botanical Butterflies Designer Series paper for free as a Level 1 reward. The Lasting Lily is a Level 2 reward. So get your wishlists out and contact me today with your order! I love giving free stuff away!

    Let’s go hopping …

    I appreciate you stopping by today and hope you enjoyed seeing some ways to use your Stampin’ Up! products to adorn your home.

    See you latte …

    Loved and Lacey

    Good Afternoon! It’s been another lovely warm day here today in Sydney. I had another fun Technique Class this morning with the ladies and I’ll share those cards in tomorrow’s Facebook Live Stampin’ Time Out at 11am. Today I have my Loved and Lacey card for you …

    Loved and Lacey

    This is such a sweet card and it uses the lovely Strong and Beautiful Stamp Set and the Beautifully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty Paper. You can find both these items on page 48 of the Occasions Catalogue.

    These two products work so perfectly together. Actually, they were the perfect pair to design my Strong & Beautiful Class last month. We made four very lovely cards using this duo.

    My card today as inspired by the sample in the Occasions Catalogue. The floral piece is from the lovely printed vellum from the Floral Romance Designer Series Specialty Paper pack.

    The background is covered with a piece from the Beautifully Detailed Designer Series Specialty Paper pack. I added some punched Soft Sea Foam Leaves, Ruffled Ribbon and Mini Sequin Trim for some depth and texture.

    I hope you like today’s card as much as the ladies in class did.

    Thanks so much for stopping by and see you latte ..

    Best Ever using All Adorned by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    All Adorned

    I have some samples for you today using the very lovely and very versatile All Adorned Sale-a-bration Stamp Set.

    All Adorned Saleabration Stamp Set
    All Adorned Saleabration Stamp Set

    All Adorned

    At first look at this set you might think you dont need or like it. I was the same but I got it anyway in pre-order. I will tell you that this is a very versatile set for all sorts of cards. It was designed to be used with the Stamparatus and it works a treat!

    Best Ever using All Adorned by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    I watched the video from Stampin’ Up! for this set and just had to make this card. It was inspired by the one they made. It’s fun and easy to do with the aid of the Stamparatus. I’m not sure you’d want to do this without it as lining up the corners could be a challenge. I do quite like the Navy & Vanilla Combination.

    Lots of Love using All Adorned by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    Another favourite colour combination of Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Gray Granite. This card can be used for any occasion or time you wish to tell someone you are thinking of them and sending them some love.

    Again, this was done with the Stamparatus and I know if I tried to line up the images freestyle then they would definitely not look as good as this!

    Like You using All Adorned by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    This is the same design as the previous card. I’ve simply changed the orientation to a landscape card, the colours and sentiment. I already had the stamps lined up on my Stamparatus Plates so it was easy to do!

    I’ve used Lemon Lime Twist and Blueberry Bushel for my inks and cardstock. The Sentiment comes from the Part of my Story Saleabration Stamp Set and I’ve included one of our little epoxy hearts over the Navy heart on the tag.

    Dont recognise the punch? it’s a new one coming in the Saleabration Coordination Special in March. It’s a gorgeous punch and one you’ll need to grab in March.

    Happy Valentine’s Day

    Good Morning .. today is Valentine’s Day so Happy Valentine’s Day! Whether your partner, spouse or secret admirer send’s you something or not know that I appreciate and love you!

    Happy Valentine’s Day

    Did you know that Valentine’s Day was originally started back in 469? It was to commemorate early Christian Martyrs – many of whom were named Valentine. It wasnt until the 14th century that it began to be associated with love. Then in the 18th century people started giving gifts to those they loved. This complete’s today’s History lesson!

    For today’s project I’ve used the gorgeous Meant to Be Stamp Set and All My Love Designer Series Paper pack …

    This card was a case from one of the projects offered in the quarterly magazine we get from Stampin Up! called Stampin’ Success. It’s just one of the many perks of being a Demonstrator.

    Their card had the ‘Just for You‘ over the floral heart but I thought it was way too pretty to cover up so I popped it lower.

    The card is super easy to make with the Meant to Be bundle …

    It’s a great bundle and when you purchase it during Saleabration you’ll automatically earn yourself a free Level 1 Saleabration reward! Plus we have new Saleabration offerings starting tomorrow so be sure you check back tomorrow morning for all the details!

    While it does have a Valentine’s Day Sentiment in the set you could use this for Anniversaries, Engagements or weddings. I am a sucker for hearts so did get this when the catalogue started. I love all the different hearts plus all the other lovely elements in the die pack.

    There’s so much to love in this sweet Bundle I know you’ll have lots of fun creating all sorts of projects with it!

    Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you were showered with lots of love on Valentine’s Day.

    Lasting Moments with Lasting Lily

    Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls Blog Hop. This week we are creating with the gorgeous Lasting Lily Saleabration Stamp Set

    Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls

    Lasting Lily

    This is such a stunning stamp set and you can get it for free with a qualifying order. It is a Level 2 reward so you will need to place an order of $180 or more to get it. Trust me – it’s worth it!

    It’s such a gorgeous set and it includes 16 stamps – 6 images and 10 sentiments! It is one of our Distinktive Stamps and it’s a little different than our previously released Distinktive Stamps as it’s in Photopolymer. Being in Photopolymer it’s easy to see when lining up or perfect to use with your Stamparatus.

    Here is what I’ve created for you today …

    When I think of these gorgeous Lilies I see them laying down. I haven’t seen many cards with them this way so opted to do them like that.

    Cutting out the Lilies was a snap as I used the upcoming Lilies Framelits Dies you’ll be able to purchase in March!

    One of my friends and team members passed away on the weekend after a long battle with Cancer so this card will be going to her family. It’s so heartbreaking as she had only recently celebrated her 35th Birthday. So there really are no words as the sentiment says.

    I wanted something bright to reflect Yasmin’s spirit so went with the Daffodil Delight for the flowers. I also used the little texture stamp in Soft Sea Foam to give it a subtle background.

    I finished off my card with the Silver Edged White Ribbon for that perfect touch.

    Thanks so much for stopping by today and please hug those close to you and never pass up a chance to tell them you love them!

    See you latte ..

    Especially for You using Botanical Bliss created by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    Especially for You

    Good Morning! I’ve got one of my Botanical Bliss cards for you today. It’s one that we made a few months back but too pretty not to share it here with you!

    Especially for You using Botanical Bliss created by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    Botanical Bliss

    This is such a sweet card and perfect for those special people in your life and for any occasion. I do love this sweet little Botanical Bliss Bundle – with all the elements in the stamp set and the framelits pack it makes for many great projects and scrapbook layouts.

    The rose image is stamped onto my stitched oval in Versamark and then embossed in Gold. The sentiment is stamped in Blushing Bride.

    Especially for You using Botanical Bliss created by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    My cut out pieces were done in Blushing Bride and Pear Pizazz. They both use the same die so cut it twice then just layered my pieces from the back of the oval.

    To give my card more depth I stamped another rose image on my top layer using my oval piece as my guide for placement. One to the top left and one to the lower right.

    I finished my card off with a simple bow using the gorgeous Vanilla Ribbon from the Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack.

    It’s the perfect card to send to a close friend just to say hi or to include a birthday or anniversary sentiment. It would also be the perfect accompaniment for a gift.

    Earn Free Products

    Purchase the Botanical Bliss Bundle and add some adhesives, ribbons, cardstock or Designer Series papers and take your order to $90 or more and you can then select a free Saleabration Level 1 product for free!

    Simple Stamping Technique – Blends Marbling

    Welcome to another Simple Stamping Techniques International Blog Hop! This month we are sharing the fun Stampin’ Blends Marbling Technique.

    Simple Stamping Techniques International Blog Hop

    Stampin’ Blends Marbling

    I stumbled across this Stampin’ Blends Marbling Technique in December and knew I had to share it with you and the Stamping Techniques Design Team!

    I did a trial run with my technique club and they loved it. It was fun to do and every piece came out different even with the same colours and the same tools.

    Now depending on the colour you choose you’ll find that the colours dont always ‘appear’ as you think they will. Using darker colours doesnt mean your piece will have them prominently up front. My ‘arty’ daughter explained that when you use a colour with a ‘heavy’ pigment they tend to sink to the background when doing a technique like this. The lighter colours will always come to the top/front of the the piece. This explains while even when using dark blue or red the pinks and yellows seemed to come out more.

    Here’s a few of my pieces I made with varying colours …

    As you can see you can get lots of different pieces with the same colours and technique. Here’s my card I’m sharing with you today …

    I didn’t want to take too much from my background piece so I simply added a sentiment and flower frame using the Forever Lovely Bundle. The colours for my flower frame were taken to match my background.

    Blends Marbling How To …

    1. You will need Stampin Blends Markers, Gloss Cardstock, ziplock bag, Isocol or Rubbing Alcohol and Paper Towels.
    2. Using your markers scribble or colour over your ziplock bag.
    3. Spritz with Isocol/Rubbing Alcohol
    4. Lay Gloss Cardstock piece down on spritzed ziplock bag and smoosh all over the back to ensure your piece is totally covered.
    5. Remove cardstock from bag and set aside to dry – wipe bag over with Paper Towels & clean up.
    6. Once your piece is dry you can use is at a background or to die cut for a pretty frame or with your favourite die cut flowers, borders and images.

    Check out the video here on how to do this awesomely addictive technique!

    Let’s go hopping …

    Check out what the Simple Stamping Techniques Design Team has created for you using the Blends Marbling Technique …

    I do hope you like all the projects the Design Team made for you using this Technique. Now with all those pieces I made I’ll need to make a few more cards!
