Lots of Happy Card Kit - 2018 Occasions Catalogue

Hello again,

I hope you all have had a chance to look at the fabulous new products available in the 2018 Occasions Catalogue that started on 3rd January 2018.

One of my favourites is the Lots of Happy Card Kit.   This kit has everything you need to make 20 cards - 4 each of 5 designs - stamps, ink, clear block, Stampin' Dimensionals, watercolour pencils, embellishments, printed card bases and co-ordinating envelopes.  It comes in a great gift box.  All this for $61.  What a bargain! You will only need your favourite adhesive to complete them.  I used Tear & Tape, Glue Dots and Mini Stampin' Dimensionals for the small flowers on the Thank You card.

I have just completed one set of the cards.  I used the watercolour pencils provided in the kit for this one, but will use the Stampin' Blends for the next set.  I used the wrong size card base when making the lots and lots card, but not to worry.  I can use the small piece intended for that card for something else.  A touch …

December 2017 Card Class

My last cardmaking class for 2017 was held on Friday 15th.  My regular ladies were treated to making some decorations...a cracker, a snowflake tree decoration and a small box.

I used some retired Designer Series Paper for the crackers. The labels were made using the Merry Little Labels stampset and Everyday Label Punch from the Holiday Catalogue.  The Foil Snowflakes and Designer Series Paper used on the Silver box are also from the Holiday Catalogue, but are retiring on 2nd January.  The little silver box will be available from 3rd January 2018, as part of Sale-a-Bration.

If you'd like to make these but don't have all the products, simply click on the photo below to take you directly to the item or use the link to my online store.

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned a great new stamp placement tool developed by a Stampin' Up! and our Leader to Leader Development team called Stamparatus.  The first reservation window closed in 15 minutes.  It was sooo popular-even I missed out on reserving one😒!

I'm excited to advise that the second reservation window opened today and will stay open until 31st December.  A few things have changed for this reservation window:-

The first window had a 'while stocks last' limit.  However, for the second window, Stampin' Up! is not limiting the maximum number of reservations accepted.  The reservation window will stay open from 6 December until 31 December 2018 at 5:50 PM (AEDT)The limit per customer is 1 StamparatusYou are eligible to participate in the second reservation window even if you participated in the first window Here's a few things you need to know about the Stamparutus.  It is compatible with Stampin' Up!'s red rubber and photopolymer…
