Petal Garden Suite

Today I’ve created a card that’s a little different.  I’ve made a pocket card using the Envelope Punch Board

Petal Garden Pocket File card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I love the 6×6 Petal  Garden Paper Stack for it’s gorgeous colours and sweet feminine designs.  I’ve also used a couple of the adhesive die cuts from the Petal Garden Memories & More card kit.  The pocket is created by adhering two pieces of paper together and then tying ribbon around to create the pocket. Petal Garden Pocket File card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

The insert is just one of the 6×4 cards from the Memories & More Petal Garden card pack. Sentiment comes from Layering Love Stamp set and is designed perfectly for this card. Petal Garden Pocket File card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

As you can see combining the Petal Gard Designer Series paper Pack and the Memories & More Petal Garden Card pack makes for quick and easy cards.

Freshly Brewed Projects – Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek

Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects Blog tour with the Latte Girls featuring Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek for you!

Freshly Brewed Projects with Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

I do love Christmas and all it’s meaning and the season of giving and I love being able to share a gorgeous new Catalogue with you.  Now the Holiday Catalogue doesnt start till Friday (1st September) but I do have a little preview today for you.

Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek … 

When I say Holiday Catalogue we immediately think Christmas however there’s so much more than just Christmas in this Catalogue! There’s products for ‘gifts’ so can be used for any occassion you need a gift for plus there is New Year’s, Wedding, Hanukkah, Thanksgiving, Halloween and Autumn/Fall themed products as well.

If you know me you know I’m a sucker  lover of Snowflakes so really couldnt go past sharing some lovelies using the new Snowflake Sentiments bundle with you today.

Emboss Resist Snowflake Sentiments by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

First up is my Emboss Resist Snowflake card which I demonstrated on this week’s Facebook Live Video (click here to watch it).  This was another Latte Card on the go – meaning that I had the design in my head and just had to get it onto cardstock!  I love how the embossed images just pop when you use the sponge brayer over them!

Snowflake Sentiments Tags by Leonie Schroderr Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

These sweet little tags were created today to show the versatility of this stamp set and that I thought the card wasnt enough for today’s blog tour.   These tags are super quick and easy and you’d get 10 tags from one sheet of A4 cardstock!  The tiny pearls were the perfect accent for the tags!

Now it’s time to head over and see what Libby and Narelle have created for you today!

next on the Freshly Brewed Projects with Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator AustraliaI’m really looking forward to being able to share the catalogue with you on Friday and I may even do a catalogue tour on Facebook Live on my new Stamp A Latte Creative Community group (click to join if you’d like)

Stepping it Up

Good afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls. This week we are taking a simple card and showing ways of stepping it up

Freshly Brewed Projects with Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

I love showing ways on how to step up a card just to make it a little different or just a little bit special.

So here’s my basic card using the very lovely Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper  ..

Vertical Happy Birthday with Naturally Ecelectic DSP by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This card is quite easy and great for a quick card or if you have to make a few and uses a sentiment from Vertical Greetings.  This card was party of my July Latte Paper Club – you can also get the details on my Latte Card Club here.

Stepping it Up 

There are a couple of ways you could step this one up.  First of all you could use  our Enamel Shapes or our Glitter Enamel Dots as I have here …

Stepping it Up with Glitter Enamel Dots by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I’ve used some of the Old Olive dots – about half way where they look a little Lemon Lime Twisty.

Or maybe you’d like to add some ribbon and maybe a doily …

Stepping it Up with Ribbon & Doilies by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Stepping it Up simply takes your pretty card to a wow card and one that will, no doubt, be loved by whoever receives it!

I hope I’ve given you some ideas on Stepping Up your own cards. Now if you need help stepping up one of your cards please dont hesitate to send a picture of it to me and I’d be more than happy to help you!

Ok .. now you’ve seen mine how about we check out what Narelle has created for us this week …

Coffee Helps

Good Morning!  I dont know about you but these winter mornings are chilling me out and it’s definitely a case of coffee helps each day.

Coffee Cafe Bundle

I love the new Coffee Cafe Stamp Set and bundle and thought today I’d share a super quick and easy Notecard which I recently taught at my Weight Watchers meeting …

Sweet Coffee Helps Note Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I started Weight Watchers in March I have made many new friends and found most of us share a love of coffee. It’s comforing that we all feel that it definitely helps us get through the day so this card was perfect for one of our ‘feel’ meetings.

It’s also a great card to just share with a friend and let them know that you are thinking of them through those days that seem just a little harder than others or even just to let them know you care.

This card would also be perfect to do as one of the projects at a party – if you would like to book a party in August or September I’m offering some wonderful booking incentives for you!

Simply contact me to book and we’ll arrange your booking bonus – could be anything from a package of embellishments to an embossing folder or packet of Designer Series Paper!

ReMarkable Carols of Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome to the ReMarkable Carols of Christmas Blog Hop ..

Christmas in July - Carols of Christmas Blog Hop with Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Carols of Christmas

Today I am hopping with 38 other Demonstrators from all over the world to share with you some products using the gorgeous Carols of Christmas Bundle which is coming as a special Holiday Catalogue pre-release for you in August.

I’ve made a card for you today in not so traditional colours …

I’ve done this card in two ways!  First for the new stampers or one you could make multiples of quickly …

The baubles are stamped quickly and easily when they are coloured with our Stampin’ Write Markers.  I’ve used Powder Pink, Sweet Sugar Plum and Pool Party for my baubles on Crumb Cake string.

Now for the stepped up version …

This is the exact same card and I’ve just stamped a few more baubles on a separate piece of Whisper White and cut them out with the coordinating framelits and popped them up with the awesome new mini dimensionals and embellished with our sweet Basic Pearl Jewels.

These simple steps take that pretty card to a WOW card and who doesnt want ‘pretty‘ for Christmas?

Check out what the other ladies have created for you with this gorgeous new bundle …

Autism Matters Blog Hop

Hello and thank you for joining me today for the Autism Matters Blog Hop!

Autism Matters - Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

I am joining some wonderful Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over world to help create awareness for Autism.

I have many friends who’s children have been diagnosed with Autism and this post is for all of them – to create awareness, appreciation and acceptance.

Did you know …

  • In the United States, one in 98 boys are diagnosed with autism, and 24,000 people are diagnosed with autism for the first time every year
  • An estimated one in 100 Australians are on the autism spectrum; that is around 230,000 people. It is four times more common in boys than girls.

Today’s card for all those who live with Autism day in and day out and know that those little moments matter a lot …

I know some days are routine however most days can be messy or grungey so I’ve used Gorgeous Grunge for my background using colours of Autism Crushed Curry, Real Red and Tempting Turquoise.

The butterflies in the background represent those times when it’s just that little bit easier or where you see a spark in your child that others may just take for granted in theirs.  

The sentiment used comes from Watercolour Wings and thought it apt for todays Blog Hop.

Thanks so much for joining us today on our blog hop!  If you’d like to help by providing a donation to Autism Speaks for research and services for those affected by Autism, you can click on the hearts below …

Glimmer Candles

Window Shopping Bundle from Stampin' Up! buy now from Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

This is such a fun bundle and makes this bright birthday card perfect for any age …

I’ve used the Candle Cut out die from the Window Box framelits to cut out my candles.  I’ve then cut strips of the Glimmer Paper to place behind the candles. The Saleabration pack was used for the Candle Sticks and the Gold Glimmer Paper for the flames.
