Annual Catalogue CASE: This Little Piggy

Good day Stampers!  I hope you’re all having a great weekend.  It’s Sunday and I’m sitting at swimming lessons for my youngest so I thought I’d sign on and do a quick blog post.

For those of you that follow my Facebook page or Instagram accounts, you’ll have seen this sample there.  I promised to post here with some more details, so here we go.

If you’re new to Stampin’ Up!, you may not have even realized that our catalogues are more than just something to see the stamps, inks, papers and accessories that we offer.  It’s actually an amazing resource to help you find inkspiration to create beautiful cards and gifts.
In fact, there is nothing better than having a creative block, turning the pages and creating something right out of the catalogue.

I recently participated in a swap with other demonstrators and the card below was my contribution.  The swap theme was nothing more than CASE a project from the annual catalogue.  I’ll be posting others over the next few days to show them all off.


My card features the "This Little Piggy" stamp set and the design is found on page 32.  I'm sure some of you are wondering exactly how I duplicated the card.  To learn more about watercoloring, heat embossing or stamping in general, send me an email and I'll be happy to share the technique how-to's with you.

Happy stampin'!

Watercolour Pencil Assortment 2

Good afternoon stampers.  I hope your Monday is off to a great start.

I’ve been super busy creating lately and remembered how much I absolutely LOVE our watercolour pencils.  And if you didn’t notice in the Colour Your Season suite, there is a NEW assortment of watercolour pencils available.  This collection is only available until August 31 or while quantities last.  If you’re not sure what you can do with watercolour pencils, check out these samples!








There are so many amazing things you can do with these watercolour pencils and if you're not sure how to actually use them to duplicate projects like you've seen here, I can show you that too!  
I'd love to hear which of the samples above you like most!

Happy stampin'

PAPER PUMPKIN: Toil & Trouble

Fall is nearly upon us and that means time to start planning for Thanksgiving (here in Canada), Halloween and of course Christmas and Chanukah.  If you like to make up little treats and gifts for your family and friends, the September Paper Pumpkin kit appears that it will have something to check off your Halloween to do list.  




Paper Pumpkin is a subscription kit that gets delivered to your door each month.  Every kit includes a project and all the supplies to complete it.  I love coming home to that little red box on my doorstep and opening it to see what amazing project lies inside.  If you’d like more information on Paper Pumpkin, send me an email and let’s chat!

Subscribe by September 10 to ensure you get this spooky-cute kit!

Blended Seasons: SAMPLE 1

If you saw my post yesterday, you will have seen that there is a suite of products available until August 31, or while quantities last.  The suite is absolutely stunning; but, sometimes it can be difficult to envision just how to use them.  

Below is one example of the projects you can make using the items in the suite.  


Stay tuned for yet another example later this week and as always, if you have any questions, I'm always available to answer them.  Just send me a quick email and let's chat.

Happy stampin'!
