Storing Those Gift Bags!

So do you remember those gift bags with the matching card on the front I have been sharing? You may even have seen them online as they are just so easy and fun to make!
I had a  private class yesterday and showed one of my customers how to make it. I always make the project at the same time as my class ladies so I can show them step by step, and I made one out of retired Elegant Eggplant designer series paper, while she used the gorgeous Share What You Love designer series paper.
Here's mine from yesterday:

I wanted to show you just how quickly and easily they fold down, but I couldn't work out to add a facebook video - I know, I'm computer challenged! If you pop into my facebook page here I'm hoping you will be able to see it - it's just so easy!

I'm still offering this class, happy to come to you if you are fairly close to Maddington Western Australia, or I can take up to 2 people at my home. We can even meet at the local coffee shop and do it there, I am flexible and our supplies are portable :)

Gift Bag and Matching Card Class is $15 per person payable in advance as I have to cut kits for you. This class is easy and straight-forward and should only take around 60-90 mins to complete depending on participants.
Feel free to contact me to chat about how it works or to book your date, weekends are going fast but I still have some weekdays (not available nights) on my calendar :)

Hope to hear from you soon!

Notes Of Kindness Kit

How cute is this card kit? 

This is one of our all-inclusive card kits in the new Annual Catalogue. It's called "Notes Of Kindness Card Kit", and it contains everything that you need to complete 20 gorgeous cards, 5 each of 4 designs.
 All you need to add is your adhesive of choice!

This kit includes a set of 6 photopolymer stamps (the clear, see-through ones), a clear stamp block, 20 printed card bases and coordinated printed envelopes, a giftable kraft box, die-cut stickers and accents, a basic black archival stampin' spot, copper bakers twine, stampin' dimensionals, and adhesive-backed pearls.
The colours in this kit are:
Basic Black
Blackberry Bliss
Blushing Bride
Mint Macaron
Mossy Meadow
Soft Seafoam
Whisper White

There is also a refill kit, that has everything from the original kit, minus the stamp set, stamp block, ink spot and the kraft box, and makes an additional 20 cards.
I have just ordered both, I can't wait to send them out to my customers this month!

Begining mid-June, I will be offering this kit as a class. Your party guests would place an order for the refill kit before the party date, and on the party date, I would come with the kit stamp set and the inkpad so that the cards could be stamped and assembled in one sitting. You can have as many or as few attendees as you like, but if you invite 6 mates over, and all 7 of you order the refill kit, you will also receive the hostess benefits! That's a minimum $25 to spend on anything from the catalogue!
*** This party style requires pre-order and payment before the party date ***

So many ways you can do Stampin' parties, and all of them fun!

Want to know more? Contact me and we can chat :)

Until next time,
Kylie :)

Another workshop make and take

Off to another workshop this morning, this time for a group of ladies that meet regularly to craft, so I needed to come up with something that would wow them! 
I was browsing the internet when I came across a card using the new 'Lovely Floral' Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, a versamark pad, and the Big Shot. 
Intrigued? I was too!!
So how do you do it? You lightly run the versamark pad over the raised image in the embossing folder, place your card front inside and run through the Big Shot. Once that's done, you sprinkle over the embossing powder, and heat with your heat gun. Ta daa! You are left with a gorgeous, shiny image that shows off the deep impression from the embossing folder. 
Here are some samples, we will be making the copper one:

Here is the hostess gift I made using the same template as my last post, but the cardstock width this time was 16cms, not 24cms, so that you can fit in 3 candles instead of 5. I used the Share What You Love specialty designer series paper as the heavy-weight paper is perfect for 3D projects. I also used the pearlized doilies, and sponged crumb cake on the opposite side, and a tag from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.

The supplies for the cards and the hostess gift are below:

Workshop Make and Take and Hostess Gift

I had my first workshop in a long time on Sunday - I mainly do paid classes - and it was nerve-wracking! I hate standing in front of people talking about the catalogue, even though I love talking about the catalogue!
I'm not a public speaker at all!
I much prefer doing a class, I find that a bit easier - sitting down with the attendees and showing them the sample, running through how to make it, then step-by-step repeating instructions as we make it together. The attendees are focused on their project, barely looking at me as they work, so much better lol!

The ladies were lovely. Some of them drove up from Mandurah - now that's commitment! It was a chilly, miserable day, we were up in the Perth Hills, and the view was just gorgeous! 
Perfect day for stamping!
Some of the ladies were new to stamping, and hadn't done heat embossing before, so I enjoyed showing them the technique, and they loved the wow of watching the embossing powder melt!
Here is the sample, which I cased from the internet:

The flower images and the sentiment have been embossed in gold. I took the whole stamp set - Love What You Do - and some of the ladies changed the flower or the sentiment and made the card their own, it was great seeing them get right into it!
Here are the supplies that I used to make this card:

Here is the hostess gift I made, and you can get the template I used here

I put aromatic candles from IKEA in the side and they smell gorgeous! I left it blank for the hostess to regift if she liked.
I made a smaller one for my hostess on Thursday, I'll be back then to show you :)

Here are the supplies I used to make this gift:

I'm back with a sneak peek of new Designer Series Paper!

I love new catalogue time - it's always exciting to see new product, and my wish list for this new catalogue is pretty big - luckily I get a  25% discount!!

As a demonstrator, we get to choose from a pre-order list in the month before the catalogue begins, and several new paper packs were available to choose from. I love the colours in this new pack - called Tranquil Textures. The colours are relaxing and serene, and the patterns so calming. 
The colours in this pack of dsp are
Crumb Cake
Whisper White
Tranquil Tide
Fresh Fig
Mint Macaron - returning colour
Night Of Navy - returning colour
Soft Sea Foam - new core colour
Balmy Blue - new core colour

and as soon as my order arrived yesterday, I opened the papers and made a few things with them - I couldn't wait!

Again I couldn't resist making a gift bag and matching card, and the colours in this paper are Mint Macaron and Night of Navy, both returning colours.

I also made a tri-fold card with matching envelope and treat bag from another of the paper designs in the same pack:

The colours in this sheet are Tranquil Tide, Mint Macaron, Night of Navy, Whisper White and Fresh Fig. As the paper is double-sided, the inside of the card  is also patterned, this time with Soft Seafoam.

These projects are all super simple and super easy, and I would love to show you how to make them - just let me know what interests you and book your preferred date and let's get crafting!

Gift Bag and Card $15 pp
Tri-fold Card, Envelope and Treat Bag $15 pp

or place an order of $50 or more and your class fee is free!! 

Paid Stampin' Class - $15 pp
Each of our dsp packs have enough paper for 6 bags and matching cards, 2 each of 6 designs, so each participant will have a different finished product, I will supply everything needed to complete your projects. You can have as many participants as you like - even if it's just you and me!

If you would like to order any of these products, the new catalogue begins Friday, June 1st at 10am. You can place your order in my online store then, or contact me anytime and I will place your order for you. If you can't wait until then, you can order these products NOW when you join my team - click here to see more info or to join, it's quick, easy, and you get to choose your own kit of up to $235 for only $169, and you never have to sell a thing!
