I had a last minute card class the other day, so decided to CASE ("copy and selectively edit")
some cute cards from the internet.
I saw this one and changed up the colour to Bermuda Bay (my fav) and white bakers twine.
I know you can't see it, but the sentiment has been heat-embossed with our new Shimmer White Embossing Powder, so it's all sparkly in real life, gorgeous!
I ran the front panel through my Big Shot with the Tufted Embossing Folder, wrapped the white bakers twine around it, then attached the sentiment panel to the front with dimensionals.
It's a quick and easy card :)
I've added the products I used below - let me know if you would like to order anything or to book a free party or a paid class to make your own :)
Hope to hear from you soon!

Stampin' Up! demonstrators have access to some great marketing material in our supply list, and one of them is our Recruit File Folders in this gorgeous print.
So of course some talented demonstrator decided to make something even more gorgeous out of one of these folders, and she even made a youtube video so that she could share it with all of us.
As soon as I saw what she did with it, I couldn't wait to place an order for some of these folders so that I could make some too, and I spent a happy couple of hours making 15 of them, which I will share with my team and some of my customers!
Check them out!
How great are they! Such a great idea!
If you would like to make some of these for yourself, let me know and I can order you the Recruit Folders - $5.95 for a pack of 5, plus postage. You can access the video here.
It's not hard to make them, and I found the perfect sized notepads at the Reject Shop and the nearly invisible velcro dots at Officeworks.
I'm working on finding slim pens that I can make a slot for, I'm usually pretty good at altering patterns and will share if I do find some that fit well.
Don't want to make one for yourself but would like one?
Happy to send you one with a qualifying order from our new Annual Catalogue, our upcoming Holiday Catalogue (which begins September 4th), our clearance rack or a combination :)
Just let me know!
Until next time,

One of my team members made me a little gift the other day - a Stampin' Dimensional Holder!
I'd never seen this before, and it's so cute!
It perfectly holds one sheet of Stampin' Dimensionals.
I made some for my Stamp Club ladies in the Follow Your Art DSP.
I coloured all of the brush tips and rollers with Wink of Stella for a little bit of sparkle.
I love this type of thing - a cute little gift that doesn't take too long to make and isn't too expensive to give away, just perfect for customer gifts too!
Why not try it yourself? You can find one of many tutorials for this little holder here - have fun!
Until next time,

I came across a card recently and loved it so much I just had to make it - it even made me want to get the Stampin' Blends that I was 'never going to get as I don't colour in' haha. I'm now a convert to Stampin' Blends - they are so fun to use!
The original card is on youtube - an easy tutorial to follow and the demonstrator is so talented!
I made a matching shadow box out of scraps I had on my table, it turned out pretty cute I thought :)
You really should give this one a go, fun colouring techniques using the blends and sponging through one of our stencils was really relaxing!
Let me know if you would like to get together and make this - I'd be happy to put together a paid class for you :)

Still on my obsession with chocolate treat holders, here is a shadow box that holds a 40gram Choceur chocolate bar - these are readily available in a range of flavours from your local Aldi store - here in Australia that is :)
The photos really don't do this treat holder justice - it is such a pretty colour combination - Petal Pink and Early Espresso.
This paper is from the Magnolia Lane DSP, my current favourite from the annual catalogue.
If you are a demonstrator, you can purchase a 20 pack of this paper in 2 double-sided designs, which is great to be able to bulk-make treat holders like this :)
If you would like to purchase a 20 pack, let me know and I can order you one!
Let me know if you would like to get together to make some of these shadow box treat holders, I would be happy to put a paid class together for you :)
Until next time,
