Final projects from Team Training day.

There are 3 more projects I need to share with you from our team training day, and I have decided to do them all in one post, as I still soo many goodies to show you using the Sale-a-bration products that I'm worried I will run out of time.

Don't forget, Sale-a-bration finishes on 22nd March, so there's less than a month to get your hands on the fantastic, exclusive, Sale-a-bration products. 

Anyway, now for the stunning projects.

This is a fantastic 8x8 scrapbook layout which was created and shared by my very talented upline Carole Bryson.



This uses the awesome Tea for Two Designer Series paper from page 3 of the Spring/Summer catalogue, the Hearts a Flutter stamps and Framelits from page 11 (but both in the bundle and get a discout), and the Apothecary Accents Framelits from page 191 of the main catalogue.
Carole also showed us how to take this 8x8 and make it into a 12x12 layout, but I haven't got a picture of that.


Here is the project created and shared by Helen Ding using the Oh Hello framelits and stamps from page 4 of the Spring/Summer catalogue along with the Secret Garden Framelits and dies. 

And last, but by no means least, a card created by Tammy Ogden using one of my favourite stamp sets, Elegant Eleanor on page 112 of the Main catalogue, and the background stamp En Francais from page 129 of the main catalogue.

I hope you enjoyed looking at these projects.  As always, if you would like to order any of the products, or book a private class to create some stunning projects, please contact me.  And if you would like to come to a training event like this, then why not join my team, there is still a month left to get the fantastic offer of £162.50 worth of products in your starter kit for just £99!!!!

I love the Simply Scrappin kits that Stampin' Up! offer.  They are just £18.95, and they provide everything you need to make loads of layouts, 12x12 cardstock, 12x12 patterned paper, and loads of embellishments.

You get at least 2 of everything, 2 of each colour cardstock, 3 of each patterned paper, and 2 of each embellishment, so they are ideal for sharing.  But, what if you haven't got a Scrapbooking buddy who likes they same kit as you?? Well, now it doesn't matter!  I am offering shares in the Bandstand Kit below.  You will get 1 of each colour 12x 12 cardstock, 1.5 of each patterned paper, and 1 of every embellishment, all for the amazing price of £9 (£12 posted).


And look at some of the fantastic things you can do with it.


And look what one of my very talented friends and customers, Christine Dawson, did with it.
If you want to create some fantastic layouts with this kit, then please contact me.  One of the shares of this has already been sold, so as soon as you email me, this other can be in the post to you!!

Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate

I hope the title got your attention.  Who doesn't like a bit of choocolate?  Sorry if you've given it up for lent.  Just had to share this photo of the hot chocolate stirring sticks I made with me daughter, decoarted with a bit of the gorgeous ribbons from from the Sale-a-bration offer.  It proves that SU ribbon isn't just for papercrafting!!

And here is another project from our team training, a stunning Easter themed gift box shared by the very talented Julie Smith.  I love the little bunny diving through the hole.  She even provided chocolate for the inside, but surprise surprise, that didn't last long enough for a photo.

It used the Petal Cone Bigz die available in the main catalogue, and also the Autumn Accents die which has been carried over from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue.

If you wish to order any of the products used in this product, then please contact me, if you would like to book a class for you and your friends at a venue of your choice to make this and other products then email to book at suitable date.
Well, I'm off to enjoy a hot chocolate stirring stick!!!

Team Training

One of the benefits of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator (and believe me there are lots!), is the fantastic people that I get to meet.   I am part of a team of demonstrators, and we are lucky enough to meet on a regular basis to share hints, tips and projects.  All of our team are really talented, and its so great to have a go at everybody elses projects.  We made loads of projects at the training, and I am going to share some of them over the next couple of days, but to start off with, here is the one that I made for everybody to make.

It uses the Comfort Cafe Designer Series Papers from the annual catalogue, I love the muted tones in this set, and I'm a bit of a Cajun Craze fan.  I've also used the new Secret Garden stamps and matching framelits.  I love sets of stamps and framelits as I'm not a big fan of fussy cutting out.  A little bit of Crumb Cake seam binding and an antique brad to finish it off, you've just got to have a bow somewhere!!!

If you and your friends would love to learn how to make this or any other cards, then why not book me to come to your house and run a class specifically designed to your needs?  All you need is a table with enough space for you and your friends and I will bring the rest.  Prices vary depending on the length of the class, and the projects made, but can be tailored to meet you budget.  Contact me know to book.
