Confirmation Card - Eclectic Expressions

My granddaughter's confirmation was today, so I made her this card in her favourite colours, cased from Rebecca Terry - www.kartenundcostudio.weebly.com
It was pretty quick to make using some retired Berry Burst cardstock and Ink.,  Sadly the Eclectic Expressions stamp set is also retired, but one I won't part with just yet.  The sentiment was done on the computer because, despite having sooo many stamp sets, I don't own anything that says confirmation 😒.  The little cross is not a Stampin' Up! item...it's a Kaisercraft one I had from years ago.

Here's what I used to make this card.

If you don't have everything you need to make this card, and you live anywhere in Australia, I'd be glad to help you order anything.  Just click on the link below the image to take you directly to that item in my store, or use this link to order anything from my online shop.

Of course, you can always email me if you have any questions, or would rather not shop online.

2019-2020 Annual Catalogue

It's Official, 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue is live today πŸ™Œ

I've had a chance to review the catalogue for 4 weeks now and I'm not disappointed with it.  But now your wait is over.

The catty is full of pretty and fun products, and as happens every year, there are 5 new In Colours that I hope you will love. 
What are the colours?  Well, how does Roccoco Rose, Terracotta Tile, Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray and Purple Posy sound?  Aren't they gorgeous?  What's your favourite?  I'm leaning towards Pretty Peacock.

As always, the colours come in Cardstock, Ribbon, Markers, Inks & Refills, DSP & Embellishments.  While all but the Terracotta Tile come as Stampin' Blends.

Also a first this year is the opportunity to purchase Suites.  This is a way for you to order a co-ordinating selection of products with one item number.  How easy will that be?  Suites, include the stamp set and dies bundle at 10% off plus other items, such as embellishments, DSP, Embossing Folder etc.

I've already received the Magnolia Lane items.  In fact, I'm highlighting this product at my June card class next week.  I hope my ladies love this set as much as I do.

Here's a few tips to help you while browsing the catty
1.  Create a Wish/Shopping List

3.  Place your order
Remember to cross of the item on your list.  I don't know how many times I've forgotten
4.  Start Creating

Fancy Fold Cards - Happiness Surrounds, Picture Perfect, Well Said

Hi again.

The focus of this month's class was Fancy Folds.  I'm usually a clean and simple stamper and some of my ladies aren't experienced stampers, so the challenge was to make something different but reasonably easy πŸ€”.

I had made a Fold back front card a couple of Christmases ago, which was inspired by Lyssa Griffin Zwolanek (songofmyheartstampers.com), so I "tweaked it a bit".

The second card was a bit tougher.  I cut the DSP the wrong way 😟 because I didn't follow Jackie Bolhuis' (klompenstampers.com) instructions correctly.  Not to worry, I had plenty of dsp to cut ready for class.

The last card isn't technically a Fancy Fold card, but because it had two cards in one, I counted itπŸ™‚.  I thought a multipurpose card would be useful for everyone, so this card is more masculine colours.  Again, I used a Jackie Bolhuis idea after seeing the colours I wanted to use in a pin by Ronda McJimsey-Gibson.  I think the blue is a tad dark, the sentiment isn't straight and lower than I wanted, but overall I'm happy with it.
