In Every Season Card

In Every Season 1 - MAY 2018

Happy Weekend, friends! Thank you for joining me today. Despite the crazy wind storm we had on Friday (seriously, I thought my car was going to blow over on the highway!), we have been having some pretty good weather this past week. I think Spring is finally here! I even spent four hours in the garden yesterday doing some clean up and prepping for new flowers!

This makes me super excited to show you this card that I created with the brand new In Every Season Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! I definitely had Spring in mind when I created it and just love how it turned out. The sentiment is also from a new stamp set (Rooted in Nature – sneak peek coming soon!).

Both of these gorgeous sets will be available in the new 2018 – 2019 Annual Catalogue that is coming on June 1st. That is less than a month away!

*Cue Happy Dance*

In Every Season 2 - MAY 2018 BLOG POST

You’ll notice that I used many different floral stamps on this one including Primrose, Violets, and Carnations. So pretty, right?

In total there are 12 different flowers included in the stamp set which you can see below. As you can tell, the possibilities are endless this one. For this card in particular, I used Pacific Point Card Stock and ink, and used a combination of Stampin’ Write Markers and Blends (will be available soon), to colour in the flowers.

Please feel free to save the guide below to use as a reference when making your own creations with this set.

The catalogue and set, along with some other amazing new products will be available on June 1st!

Animal Outing 2

You may even notice something else that is new on this card, and that is our new Pearlized Doilies. These are beautiful new doilies that have a pearl finish on one side, and white on the other. I think these are going to be so versatile and they really can be used for any project. They just add that little extra something, you know?

If you want to get a copy of the new catalogue, as well as a chance to use some brand new product, be sure to RSVP to my Catalogue Launch Party on Friday, June 8th. You can view full details on my Events page, or on Facebook!

Celebrate Card w/ Video, Plus Tips!

Hello friends and happy Sunday!

We’re in the middle of an April ice storm here in Hamilton…what the heck?! I am so ready for Spring! BUT, being stuck inside has it’s advantages as I was able to film and edit my latest video all in one day! Winning!

Celebrate You Card 1

Today’s card is so pretty, isn’t it? Not only does it have a little bling, but I made it using absolutely NO stamping! I do love to stamp, but sometimes you just gotta change it up, you know?

For this card the main items used are the Eclectic Layers Thinlit Dies and the Celebrate you Thinlits (coming out June 1st).  A full list of supplies used for this card is located at the end of this blog post.

You can watch the full video tutorial below.

I really hoped you enjoyed today’s tutorial! Here is a closer look at the card.

Colour Revamp Revealed

Colour Revamp

The spice of life is variety, and that’s especially true in the world of color. Stampin’ Up! makes a point to keep an eye on color trends across different markets and industries. When they see changes happening, they review their color spectrum to ensure that they remain consistently on top of the trends. This brings us to the 2018 Color Revamp! In order to keep bringing you the most current and on trend colours, they decided it was time to give their color collections a makeover.

You may have noticed from the Retiring Lists that many colours are going away. While I am sad to see some of my favourite colours go (goodbye my beloved Island Indigo), I am equally excited to see some returning favourites, as well as some brand new colours!

First, let’s take a look at the RETIRING COLOURS. They are below.

Colour Summary

Second, let’s new at NEW colours. Notice any returning favourites?!

New Colours

Next, let’s look at the FULL colour Reveal, including new Colour Collections.

Full Colour Reveal

Aren’t these colours delicious?! I am very excited about Merry Merlot, Mango Melody, Gorgeous Grape, and Balmy Blue! Oh, and did you see that Mint Macaron is coming back?! YES!

So, what do you think about these changes? I’d love to hear your feedback in the comment section of this blog post. I am absolutely excited about this and can just imagine all of the fun stamping we can have with these colours.

There is another change coming (I know, it’s a lot to take in), but the ink pads are also changing and I’ll post about those soon! And trust me, it is good!

When the catalogue goes live on June 1st, I’ll also have some colour guides available for my customers.

Be sure to sign up for my newsletter if you’re not already on my list!

Thanks for joining me today! Happy Stamping!

Time to Say Goodbye

Last Chance Products Graphics

Every year Stampin’ Up! comes out with a list of retiring products to make room for brand new items! While it is exciting, it’s always sad to say goodbye to some of our favourites! From now until May 31st is your chance to get these products (some only while supplies last) before they are gone forever!

Please take a look at the lists below to see what is retiring:

Due to high demand for retiring stamp sets, retiring stamp sets will be guaranteed available until May 25; all other products are not guaranteed and are only available while supplies last.

View all the retiring items in my Online Store HERE.

 

Be sure to complete your wish list fast! Some times are only while supplies last and I’d hate for you to miss out!

Use HOST CODE C47YGANE when shopping so you can take advantage of my rewards!

If you have any questions at all, please contact me!

New Beginnings | GDP123

Hello Friends!

I decided to enter the Global Design Project Challenge #123 at the last minute, and I’m super excited to show you what I came up with! I’ve done the challenge before, but I admit, it’s been a while!

New Beginnings GDP123 - 1

This challenge (#GDP123) is all about new beginnings, and I think this is something we can all relate to. Whether it’s a new job, you’re a new Stampin’ Up! Demo (or want to be!), retirement, wedding…the list can go on! We’ve all started anew at one point or other, so what a perfect theme!

GDPD123

For this particular card, I had two things in mind; retirement and/or new job. I think it suits either occasion as its bright, cheery, and really shows excitement!

The layout of the card is cased from the lovely Lauren Alarid, who is a fellow demonstrator and a 2018 Artisan Design Team Member. Her cards are always so lovely, but the layout in which this one is based, is probably one of my faves!

You’ll notice that I used a couple of different stamp sets for this card; the new Picture Perfect Stamp Set from the new Occasions Catalogue, as well as the Colourful Seasons Stamp Set from the Annual Catalogue.

Colours used are Bermuda Bay, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, and Peekaboo Peach. Also used is the beautiful Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, which created the beautiful background on this card.

New Beginnings GDP123 - 2

I do hope you love this card! If you have any questions about this or anything Stampin’ Up!, please comment below!
