Hello little man!

On the 13th December, sometime in the morning, in a hospital in Sydney, my friend Lauren and her husband Corey welcomed their first child...a little boy named Felix.

He is just so cute!

Now Lauren isn't the type for girly girly mushy type baby instead I decided to make a card for her new "little man"........her little knight in shining armour..

I made this one from the new Myths & Magic Suite from the upcoming Occasions 2018 catty.
It is such a cute suite, definitely suited to little ones and kids.

The designer paper, which I die cut the little knight from, are absolutely devine....a glittery design on one side and a standard print on the reverse.

What a beautiful gift to receive right before christmas (the baby, not the card lol)

Congrats Lauren & Corey!
All the best for 2018.

May your day be Wonderful!

I'm having so much fun with the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit.

I can see I'm going to get quite a few projects from this kit making it fantastic value.

I whipped up this card in no time to go with the Gift Box I created yesterday.

A simple but elegant Birthday Card.
You can use any sentiment but this one is from the new Cake Soiree stamp set from the Occasions 2018 Catalogue out January 3rd.

I also used a trick to emboss the Berry Burst ink for the sentiment. Simply stamp your desired sentiment stamp in the Versamark Ink pad FIRST getting good coverage on the stamp and then stamp it in the colored ink of your choice, stamp on your project, cover with clear embossing powder and heat set like normal. You can use this technique for ANY Stampin' Up! color.

You don't need many supplies to make this one either making it easy all round. You can also use different coloured foils as well or even Glimmer Papers.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my project.

Not just for Pizza

Here is another product I said I wouldn't purchase because I won't use it and we are! lol

The humble Mini Pizza Box....these are so cute.
I have seen so many variations of these done in Christmas with many ideas of gifts to put inside.

However, seeing as I have completely exhausted my Christmas creations, I've moved on to using new products.
I purchased a pack of the Mini Pizza Boxes from the soon to be Retiring Holiday Catalogue some time back and then had no idea what to do with them.

Until yesterday.....after I opened the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit and then decided to incorporate the two.

I am in love with the vellum and silver embossed flowers from this kit. 
They really make a project look elegant.

I simply used some Silver foil for the base and the Washi from the kit to do the edging. Then adhered that to the lid. Then added the cake, with the flowers on top and wrapped in the Bermuda Bay Shimmer Ribbon from the Sale-a-bration Brochure finished off with a coordinating Glitter Enamel Dot.

It even looks delightful without the ribbon. 
I've tied the ribbon so it can easily be slid straight off the box without untying it.

Then inside..

I've added some Readie Shreddie and popped in an Itunes Gift Card. 
These boxes are the perfect size for a gift card.

I think I'll be making more of these as now I have many ideas on variations for different celebrations.

If you love the Pizza Boxes, be sure to head on over to my store and grab them as they are Retiring!
Grab yours before they sell out!

Thank you for stopping by to check out my project today. 
Remember, new product can be purchased from January 3rd 2018.

Until next time

Sweet Soiree

I love the smell of new products!

It's not long to go now before the launch of the Occasions 2018 Catalogue during Sale-a-bration.

I'm so excited!
I'm a little over Christmas cards....lets face it, its only 12 sleeps away. I figure if my cards haven't gone out by now, too late. I've been pumping them out since August and I think I have enough....about 100 or so!

So I may as well get a head start on using my new products.

I've been having fun with kits and here is another creation with a very simple but very pretty kit.

I LOVE this kit...well I do now.
When I first saw it in the catty, I didnt put it on the list. I thought "I'll never use that"!

Well thanks to a fellow team member Sue Vine who made a stunning card with this same kit, I was inspired to purchase one and then make something with it.

I'm going to see over the coming days how many cards I can get from one kit.

I have used 2 different suites on this card and a product from the Annual Catalogue. Can you guess which one?

I love how this card turned out and it only took me 10 mins to make.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my card today.
A full list of items used to make this card features below. Remember, new products are available for purchase 3rd Jan 2018.

Lots of Happy!

Not long to go now until Sale-a-bration 2018 kicks off...which means a new Occasions Catalogue.

It is FULL of stunning new products.

The first one to catch my eye was the Lots of Happy Card kit which features on page 15.

This is an All Inclusive kit - which means you get everything you need in the kit to make the 5 different card designs, including the coordinating Stamp Set and 4 Watercolor Pencils.
This kit makes 4 each of the 5 designs so 20 cards in total.
You also get coordinating envelopes too.
Plus the clear block for your polymer stamp set and a black ink spot.
All you need to do is the colouring!

You also get all the layers for the card, some ribbon and lots of vellum die cut flowers.
Best part is, when you have finished putting all the cards together, not only do you have 20 cards on hand when you need them but then you also have the pencils, stamp set, block etc to use again.

I think this kit is fantastic value at $61.00 AUS and perfect for the beginner.
Refills are also available if you want to make some more.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my project today.
This card kit will be available for purchase as of 
3rd January 2018.

If you cant wait and need to have it now, why not join and then get it at 20% off?

Until next time
