This is what happens when...

...you leave your 20 month daughter unattended for a few minutes with the Regal Rose ink pad and a make up sponge! At least it matches her dress!





Only 1 more day to go...

to get your orders in if you would like to make savings!

If you would like to purchase a Sizzix Big Shot (£87.95 and more info here) I will give you a massive £30 of products from the current Stampin Up catalogues for FREE! This does not include postage if you do not live locally. Offer ends 29th June 2011.  To have a look at the mini catalogue click here

Mini Butterfly notecards and notebook

It's been a busy few days! I had a class at home on Saturday morning followed by an Open House for anyone wanting to know more or buy Stampin Up products.  I had some lovely friends through who have been so supportive of what I'm doing.  Also dear husband took all 4 children out for the morning so I could concentrate!

The class was similar to the one I taught last week.  Had a slight panic when I realised I didn't have enough cream cardstock for one of the cards, so we used a different colour, came out quite well!


Then last night I had a play with the Beautiful Butterflies Die (114507).  I made some tiny notecards, the kind that you would slip in a parcel to someone, no envelope needed.  Made a little bag for them using this tutorial here that I saw someone else use on the In Love with Stamping forum.

This is a mini notebook, isn't it adorable! Wouldn't it make a sweet party favour for a little girl - and only a few pence to make.


Used about 4 sheets of white printer paper to cut all the butterflies, and Certainly Celery Card stock to create the front and back page.  Stamped an image from the Green House Garden Set then used the Cropodile to cut through them in 2 lots. Tied it together with some Pear Pizazz seam binding.

Green House garden and more...

These are some of the other things we made last night.  I showed the ladies how to do the two step stamping, and they all oooed and aaahed over how to use the Stampamajig!

We also made a personalised notebook.  Used the Fun Flowers die to cut the flowers, sponged the edges with basic black and "cupped" the circle with the end of a pencil and stuck it on with 2 dimensionals.  The ladies had great fun with the Stampin wheel to make a background which I then cut up for them to use.

First Class tonight!

I've just got back from the first class I have taught as a Stampin Up demonstrator.

The girls made 3 cards and covered 1 notebook.

I will post more pics of the card's I demo'd tomorrow, in the mean time here are a couple of pics I took on my phone.


Ely was very creative and deviated a little bit from my original design, 
it was so nice to see her own interpretation.

It's arrived and I've played!

My lovely Starter Kit arrived on Tuesday, I just had to capture the moment, so here are some pictures...





I swapped some of the recommended stamp sets for ones that I thought would be more useful for me, and also choose some different coloured ink pads.  The kit is fantastic value for money even if you wanted to save money on some crafty goodies.  Click here for more info on how to get it.

Initial thoughts about some of the products.

My first reaction to the Very Vanilla card stock was that it is to light weight for making a card base.  After a discussion with my fab upline Claire, she explained that the Very Vanilla and Whisper White card was for stamping on and then sticking onto the coloured card. I have to admit the stamped images on that card looks superb.  Apparently if you like to colour with Copics the colours do not bleed as they sometimes do with other card. 

Here is one of the card's we'll be making at classes this month

Waiting...

for my starter kit.  Apparently it's been shipped and I'm to expect it Wednesday.

I've been doing some research into the fantastic things that can be made with the Sizzix Big Shot.  I have already been making use of Sizzix dies in projects and am planning to make my own videos.

However there are already some fantastic demonstrators out there who have filmed great tutorials.  Here are just a few of what I've found, enjoy!
