Special Reason

Hi and Welcome!

I know I’ve been a bit absent the last week but I’ve had a terrible time coping with the heat and just getting the important things done.  Not that sharing my cards with you isnt important to me – it is … actually it’s very important to me but sometimes my health and getting through the day with my Fibromyalgia sometimes has to take priority.

That being said I did manage to whip up four sweet cards for last weekends Special Reason Class.  Now you may say you dont need another flower stamp set or framelit die set but I’m telling you now this bundle is not like any flower set we’ve had before.

Special Reason Bundle

This die set is awesome.  I’m so in love with this set as you can use them to cut out the stamped flower, or you can use them to fine cut out the flowers and leaves or as a stencil like I’ve done on this card …

All I’ve done is cut out the flower stencil in the two sizes and I’ve popped a white layer behind it with dimensionals.

Using dimensionals gives your card depth and creates the shadow …

How awesome is this Stamp Set?  It comes with 14 stamps including flowers and leaves in two different sizes as well as quite a few sentiments.  Now the sentiments can be used on their own or as a front & inside sentiment.  I’ve used the sweet sentiment ‘I’m lucky to have a friend like you’ on this card and really who wouldn’t want to receive a card with that on it?

If you’ve passed over this set or bundle in the Occasions Catalogue I urge you to give it another look.  The Bundle with Clear Mount Stamps is $80 so all you’d need to do is say add that gorgeous Very Vanilla ribbon and you’ll have earned yourself a free Saleabration item!

Now I also have a very special offer for you … when you purchase this bundle from me you’ll receive the class tutorials absolutely free and I’m sure you’ll want it after you’ve seen all the cards I’ve made with it and I have more ideas to come as well!

Brightly Blessed

Good Morning!

It’ a busy day here today with grocery shopping this morning, some blog help for a friend at lunch and then tonight it’s off to the Council Chambers for the Victor Chang Science Awards where, apparently, my youngest is receiving an award!  How cool is that?

Today’s card is one I made using the Paisleys and Posies Stamp Set …

brightlyblessed

I do love this set and this will be one of the cards we make this Saturday for my November Birthday Card Club.  For this card I went away from the ‘paisley’ and just used the ‘posies’ type stamps.

I also love the brightness of this card and how well the colours seem to go with each other – sometimes we just need something bright that tells people how blessed we are to have them in our lives.

I also love those Stitched Shape Framelits – this one uses the oval Stitched Framelits and it’s not even the largest one in the set – such wonderful value for money!

I’ve decorated my card with some Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon, Enamel Shapes and Rhinestone Jewels.

Don’t forget I’m gifting one of our Anniversary Scrap Bins with orders of $70 or more and still have a couple left to gift so be sure to get your order in so you can get yours for free!

I hope you grab some bargains and give the gift of creativity this year for Christmas!

12 Weeks of Christmas – Week 3

Good Morning and welcome to Week 3 of my 12 Weeks of Christmas.

Can you believe it’s just 9 weeks away?  How does that happen? I’m sure last week it was like 3 months away!

I hope you’ve at least started your Christmas Shopping as it can sneak up very quickly!

So we are up to Week 3 and this week I’m using the Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle and I’ve got some sweet Christmas Tags for you …

cookiechristmastags

How sweet are they?  and so much fun to make – this Christmas is going to be full of all sorts of Cookie Cutter Christmas cuteness!

I’ve bundled a couple of extra’s together to add to the Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle for you to make this neat bundle …

All this for just $90.25 – yes that means the shipping is free!

Wait … I have more for you … when you purchase my ‘loaded’ Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle you’ll also get to choose one of these for free!

 

You simply contact me to place your order and let me know which item you’d like for free so I can include it in your order.  Bear in mind I’m out all day today for a Party and then again tomorrow I’m out for Stamp Club.  Feel free to text or email me and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

I also have this sweet Eskimo card for you …

eskifriends

How sweet are they?  I bet they are having a cool time in the snow!

Also, when you purchase my ‘loaded Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle you’ll get the tutorials for all the projects I’ve shared here today.

Now you do know that just because this set is in the Holiday Catalogue and has ‘Christmas’ in it’s name doesnt mean you can only use it for Christmas cards – check out these sweet Baby cards …

peekabooboy

These are so much fun to make and to create the pattern on the white layer I used the Seasonal Decorative Masks with the Sponge Daubers on the Boy card and the Sponge Brayer on the Girl card ..

peekaboogirl

How sweet and fun are these cards?  They were inspired by some created by Bibi Cameron in the UK.

I do hope you liked this week’s projects and I know you’ll love the Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle as I do.  It’s been my best seller from the Holiday Catalogue!

Remember, you can include this bundle with any other products like the Designer Series Paper special and the more you spend this month the more you’ll earn with Latte Rewards to spend in October.

vellumblues

I love the cut out in the vellum and with a touch of heat embossing and the gorgeous glimmer paper this will be admired by anyone you send it to!

redgoldfoil

If you read my post yesterday you’ll know how much I love the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate and with the addition of the Gold Foil and Gold Baker’s twine this one is sure a winner.

Oh and that large star – the framelit does the scoring for you so all you have to is fold and attach!

Need Star Ornaments for your Christmas Tree?  I’ve got you covered …

These are quick and easy and so pretty on the tree.  I’ve used one of the patterns from the This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack but you could use any designer paper you wanted.

A Touch of Thanks

It’s Tuesday so it’s time for another free Tutorial for you!

Today’s card is one that is going out to all my Direct Downlines – they are the ladies who joined with me and I want them to know that I do appreciate each and every one of them!

touchofthanksset

I made several of the same design and just changed the colour of the ink and coordinated the embellishments and bows.  How nice is that floral lace stamp from Touches of Texture?  It’s perfect for quick and easy cards!

These are so super quick and easy and make such a lovely card I know you’ll love having the free tutorial which is available now in the Latte Project Sheets page.  If you’ve registered for my Weekly Blend Project you should already have your email – if you’d like to receive the file in your inbox before it goes on my blog then please register in the sidebar.

I do hope the ladies like their cards and know how much I appreciate them – I also hope they  like what I’ve included with their card this month.

Thanks for stopping by today …
