Open House / New Catalogue Launch

It has been a busy week getting
prepared for our Open House/New Catalogue

Just thought I would share one of the cards
I have created for display
using the new Build a Birthday
Stamp Set and the Cherry on Top DSP.

This is just a little taste of all the lovely
samples we will have to share with you all.

May Card Class

This month's class was all about
using the Envelope Punch Board 
in our projects.

To start with we created a simple
 envelope to match with our male
themed card.

We also created a mini envelope to add
to the embellishment of our card.

Stamp set is Balloon Bash from the 
Occasions Catalogue and 
the Alphabet Press Embossing Folder, both
products I am going to miss as they
are retiring.

DSP - In Colour Paper Stack Mossy Meadow
Inkpads - Mossy Meadow, Early Espresso

Mason Jar notecard, again using the
Envelope Punch Board.

Ink Pads - Pistachio Pudding, Pink Piroutte

Our third project was creating this cute

Sharing our projects from this month's 
Stamp Club.

Our first card I took my inspiration
from the latest Impressions Magazine
(one of the awesome products Stampin'Up!
provides for all of its demonstrators for
inspiration etc).

As the 2013/2015 In Colours are
about the retire (and I have loved
 these colours so much and will be sad
to see them go)  I decided to use
a combination of Crisp Cantaloupe and
Coastal Cabana.  

Our second card was created using
the Balloon Bash Stamp Set which
is current in the Occasions Catalogue
however, has not carried over into the
new Annual Catalogue.  I love the
versatility of this set so wanted to use it
one more time before it retires also.  You
will see the sentiment in the first card is
also from this stamp set.  I love the way
you can fussy cut out the banner to make 
it a little different.

Special Order Birthday Card

Just sharing with you today one of my 
recent cards I created for a special order, the
recipient being a lovely young girl.

Of course I used my favourite Butterfly Basics
stamp set and matching frame lit dies as well
as my favourite colours of Bermuda Bay
and Pear Pizzazz.

I hadn't created a Centre Step Card for quite
some time so decided that this design would
make the card extra special.

Had such an exciting and fun time at the
Stampin'Up! Convention.

Can't believe how fast those 3 days have
just flown by.

Have come home (well actually I only live 
around the corner from the Gold Coast
Convention Centre - so not far to go) very
inspired and looking forward to being
able to share the new catalogue
with everyone very soon.

And look what I won.

The very last Prize Patrol and I won
the gorgeous new Bohemian DSP and a
fast fuse.  Can't wait to play with this
gorgeous paper.

Thank you Stampin'Up! for a wonderful and inspiring 3 days of fun.
