Item Description Price
 133774 Envelope Punch Board$31.95 

  • It creates totally customisable envelopes in up to 66 different sizes (not to mention a million different colour and pattern options depending on the paper you want to use). Even tried and true envelope sizes will only take you moments to create! 
  • It's super easy to use; It looks intimidating at first glance, but when you see that all you have to do is measure for the first punch and from there you just turn and score you'll go crazy (in a good way). 
  • It's small and lightweight; this makes it easy for you to take it to your craft events and crops. It's  super portable and easy to store. It's small and light enough that you could use it while watching your kids at sport or dancing, at a friend's for craft night - anywhere!! 
  • It even has a clever scoring tool as well as a punch that lets you create rounded corners on your envelopes. 
  • It's easy to keep it all together; the stylus storage compartment and two punches are designed into the tool so you don't have a bunch of little pieces to keep track of (even the instructions are printed right on the tool so you won't lose them!).
  • The price is terrific--especially for a tool that does so much!
  • It will be in next year's annual catalogue, so it's here to stay.

  • The Envelope Punch Board (133774) is available to order TODAY!!

    Wow, so much to share today! If you would like to see any of these products in person, let me know, I would love to show you and your friends how simple it is to make your packaging look super special!!

    These product are available in my online store 24/7, just click here then click on 'shop now' and off you go! Or contact me today and I can place your order for you!

    Until next time,

    Breast Cancer Fundraiser Time......

     
     
     
    Yep, it's that time of year again, Breast Cancer Aware Month!
     
    Are you aware? Regular checks save lives, so get checked today!
     
    My friend Jayne hosts a Breast Cancer Fundraiser every October and for the last few years I have been making little treats and taking them along to help raise some money. Regular readers of my blog will have seen the treats I made last year - if you missed them, click here to see that post :)
     
    This year I made a whole heap of different things for the ladies to choose from - a couple of my class ladies really liked the works in progress, so I hope Jayne's ladies like them too!!
     
     
    This is made with Strawberry Slush cardstock and retired DSP. It holds a wrapped tea bag, and I found some pink teabags to match the holder - so cute!
     
     
    This little holder holds 2 snack sized chocolate bars and is made with retired Pretty in Pink cardstock and retired DSP. The template can be found here - very quick and easy, I changed the measurements to suit my treat.
     

     
    These gorgeous little cello tubes I saw on Inking Idaho - Becky Roberts is one of my absolute favourite US demos. I just love the roses!!
     
     
    I used retired cardstock and DSP for this test tube holder, and I found the template here. I found the pink MMs at my local Coles.
     

    Again I used retired Pretty in Pink cardstock and I found the template for this little box here. Inside are two Ferrero Rocher chocolates.
     


    
    I just love these little holders - I have put a single wrapped Tim Tam in there, but it also fits 3 Ferrero Rocher chocolates too.
     

     
    And here they all are, ready to head off to the fundraiser!!
     
    Are you interested in coming along to a class and learning how to make any of these little treats (in current colours)? Contact me to book a time and date!!
     
    Until next time,

    More surprises for October!!

    This is going to be a GREAT week for sales and new product for Stampin' Up! - and exciting for us too!!

    With Stampin' Up! celebrating it's 25th Anniversary this month (on the 25th to be exact!), they have decided to offer a fantastic sale on Tuesday the 22nd - more info will be released soon.
    They will also be releasing the new Thinlets Dies too!! Have you seen these amazing little dies yet?



    You can watch them in action above, click here to watch it on Youtube......
    Mine arrived just a day or so ago so I haven't had a chance to play with it yet, but I think I might do that today!!

    And something else coming later in the week - The Envelope Punch Board!! I just got mine and used it yesterday to make an envelope to match a card I made for my good friend for her birthday - it turned out great!! The only tip I can give you, is don't press too hard on the scorer - you don't need to, saving your energy and your cardstock.
    Check it out here:
    and here on Youtube:
     
     


    You can order the Envelope Punch Board from the 29th - it makes 66 different sized envelopes and has the measurements written right on the board, so they are always there for you to refer back to!

    Monday the 21st is the last day you can join Stampin' Up! for the amazingly low price of only $25, then the fee reverts back to $169 - which is still pretty fabulous as you get $235 in product of your choice! With the $25 joining fee, you get up to $26.95 in product, all of your business needs like catalogues, order forms, invitations etc, plus a few benefits you won't get once it has finished - contact me for more information!!

    Don't forget about my Festive Flurry Collection classes on November 7th and 14th - you would hate to miss them, they are great!!

     
    Until next time,

    Festive Flurry 3D card.......

    I have been immersed in Christmas cards and crafts since the Holiday Catalogue was available to demonstrators for pre-order, and I'm not sick of it yet!! I have held lots of classes and still have some to offer - some are listed on my website here and all are able to be booked at another date if my listed dates don't work for you!

    I held a 3D Christmas Card class yesterday that even included handmade (from cardstock, so nice and sturdy) envelopes made with the Simply Scoring Tool and the Diagonal Scoring Plate. Here is one of the cards we made:

     
    Look at the dimension on the front of the card! We really did need a deep envelope for this one! The dimension on the card is nearly an inch thick! Definitely not a card to give to just anyone!! I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest, click here to see the original.

    This is just one of the cards in the 3D class - feel free to book in with me, at your place or mine to see the others - they are gorgeous!! We use the Pop n Cuts base with the labels insert on one, heaps of dimension, bling and gorgeous snowflakes! And the other one is an easel-style card with bling, bling, bling!!

    I call the class the 3D Christmas Card Collection and we make 3 extreme-dimension cards with lovely deep, handmade envelopes you can stamp to match if you like, all for only $25.00!! Bargain!!

    Contact me today to book your spot or to book me to come to you - I would love to show you these in person!

    Until next time,
    Kylie xxx

    Ps Don't forget about my Festive Flurry Collections Class on November 7th and 14th - you won't want to miss this class!

    A Little Bit Of Halloween......

    Don't you just love Halloween? I love all of the decorations that have been appearing in the shops the last few years. I love the Halloween creations I see on Pinterest and all of the Halloween papers and stamps that Stampin' Up! has started introducing into the South Pacific market!!
     
    My stamp club ladies know how much I love Halloween, and for Stamp Club on Friday I have set them a challenge to make a 3D Halloween treat holder - they all vote on the one they like the best and the winner gets a handmade prize - this time I made a Christmas box using the Tag A Bag Gift Boxes in the Annual Catalogue - pic to follow.
     
    I usually have a little treat at each of their places at the table, and this time is no exception. I came across these little milk bottles at my local reject shop some time ago and finally found a use for them!
     
     
     
    Aren't they cute?? I filled them with traditional American Halloween candy - Candy Corn and Mallow Pumpkins which I purchased online. I get them every year and one of my Stamp Club ladies has a real taste for them! I used retired paper and ribbon as that is what I had on hand, but our current Halloween papers are really cool and would work well on this project!
     
    What are your plans for Halloween?
     
    Until next time,
