One Week Left to Join My Team!

Sale-a-bration is coming to an end - there's only a week left!
Did you get all of the free SAB goodies that you wanted?
Did you enjoy the extra Hostess benefits that came with qualifying orders?
Sale-a-bration was a lot of fun for me this year - the free products were the best in years, I will be sorry to see them go, but I've stashed a few away for personal use :)
Did you see the joining special - we had 2 this year!



Such a generous reward for joining a fabulous company - a massive amount of free product, and if you chose option 2, you also got that gorgeous craft tote - I adore mine!
The tote is ONLY available to new demonstrators who join during SAB, so it will be saying goodbye in a week when SAB ends - March 31st will be your last day to join my team, and choose your free goodies and that tote if you choose option 2.

If you are worried that once you join, you will be pressured to sell or to join in all of the fabulousness that is Stampin' Up!, then don't worry!
You will NEVER be pressured to sell by me or by SU! EVER!
You can purchase just for yourself - that 20% discount is really very handy -  you can sell just to friends and family, or you make a business for yourself, large or small! Work it as often as you like, it really is your business!
Leaving is as simple as not making your minimums, or emailing SU! to say you won't be continuing, that's it, and you walk away owing nothing, and can keep all that you have bought! 
You can go back to being a customer at any time, and you can always rejoin when it suits you, if you decide that you can't live without being a part of this amazing company - I am coming up on my 10th anniversary with Stampin' Up!, and I love every bit of it :)

Feel free to message me with any questions, I am happy to help, or click the link to join my team:

Hope to see your name there soon!
Cheers,
Kylie :)

Arrow Fold Card

Have you heard of the Arrow Fold for a card before?
I hadn't either until recently, and they are so easy to make!

Here is the first one that I made. I followed a tutorial that used a 6x12 piece of cardstock. 


As 12x12 card isn't as readily available as A4 is, I changed up the measurements slightly to make these next ones from A4 - 14.8 x 29.7 (standard A4 length). 




There is barely any size difference, but I can now choose any colour to make them in as I have more of the A4 packs than 12x12 packs!
I decorated all of the cards with the free dsp from Sale-a-bration, both the Botanical Butterfly and Painted Seasons - which one is your favourite?

Let me know if you would like to book a party or place an order and earn yourself either of these free papers :)

Until next time,
Kylie :)

More of the Country Floral Embossing Folder...

Here are a couple more ideas on how to use the Country Floral Embossing Folder.
On this card, I embossed Whisper White card stock and coloured th flowers with our Stampin' Write markers, then went over them with the aquapainter to smooth out the colouring lines. You can also use our Blends, and they work beautifully, no smoothing required!



This card I embossed Bermuda Bay card stock and attached it to Black, and added a sentiment panel to match.


This Card is Whisper White embossed, layered onto silver foil, then onto the Whisper White base.
I silver heat-embossed the sentiment onto vellum card stock and attached it to the front panel, wrapping the ends around the panel to hide the adhesive. I added some rhinestones for extra sparkle.


Such a great embossing folder, and even better that it's free with a $90 purchase this month - Sale-a-bration has a heap of goodies that you can choose for FREE when you place a qualifying order! Click here to see more!
Feel free to ask me questions about these projects, or anything Stampin' Up! :)

Until next time,
Kylie

Inking up your embossing folders....

Do you use embossing folders in your crafting? 
I don't use them nearly enough. They add such a fantastic texture to plain card stock, but you can use them for more than that!
Have you ever tried colouring with your embossing folders?
This is how it looks when you add the same colour ink to the coloured card stock - how cool is that?


This card uses Daffodil Delight, but you can make the same effect using nearly any colour!

So, first you need to ink up your embossing folder using your inkpad, just swipe it over the 'debossed' side - that's the side with the Stampin' Up! logo on the outside. You can see it's the right side if the pattern isn't raised, it should be smooth.
I find I have the best results using our original felt pads, but you can use the newer firm foam, just be very very gentle when you swipe, don't use any pressure as the ink can get into the deep parts and the effect will be less of a wow.


Pop the same coloured card stock into the embossing folder and close it gently,making sure not to move the card stock when you do.


Run it through your Big Shot - as the folder is so think (it's one of our dynamic ones) you will only need the platform and the top acrylic plate. 


Once embossed, you can carefully take it out of the embossing folder and use it on your card :)

How quick and simple was that? It makes the card look like you have spend ages colouring it, but it was done in a flash - so easy!

You can do this with most of our embossing folders, but this particular folder is FREE with a $90 purchase during Sale-a-bration, which does finish this month, and this folder, like all of our Sale-a-bration free items, is while supplies last, so if you love it, get yours now before they either run out or the promotion ends :)

Let me know if you have any questions!
cheers,
Kylie :)



Gate Fold Hidden Easel Card

I love this fancy fold card - it's made from one sheet of A4 cardstock, instead of adding an easel fold base to a card base, and it can...
