Christmas Wine – Stampin’ Up! Australia

Christmas isn’t about cards, but gifts too and a bottle of wine is often a perfect gift!  And every gift can be decorated to make it extra special.

A tag and ribbon can dress up a lovely bottle of red….

Or with a sheet of 12×12 you can decorate the whole bottle…

There’s so many ways you can used the fantastic Half Full stamp set from Stampin’ Up!…if you missed the past two posts using it, you can check them out HERE and HERE.

Happy Stampin’!

4 Section Card Holder – Stampin’ Up! Australia

One of the projects that we did at my recent Creative Escape weekend was this Card Holder.  It has 4 sections and I designed it for Australian sized cards, as well as to accomodate C6 Envelopes.  It’s heaps of fun to make and would look great in your office or as a gift!

It’s a great way to have some cards close on hand for next time you need some!

The Free Instruction PDF file is a 5 page Instruction Template.  You can simply print the templates onto card and paper and cut out or follow the instructions to cut and score.  To receive this template for FREE, simply place any order with me in August and I will email you the step by step instructions!

The hostess code for August is NKKDXG74  if you use that when placing all orders under $250, you will receive a FREE mystery gift from me! (as well as the card holder template).  If you order over $250, don’t use the code as you’ll receive Stampin’ Rewards, AND I will also send you the free mystery gift.

Home Sweet Home – Stampin’ Up! Australia

Hi Everyone!
Hope you are enjoying your weekend!  I had a friend visit for some stamping the other night and she brought with her the new Home Sweet Home Bundle.  I hadn’t purchased this yet but now I have!  It’s so cute!  I popped together a very basic little house, which was all I needed to make me fall in love with this.

The cute little house in Sweet Sugarplum & Mint Macaron (sounds good enough to eat!)


And I just folded the roof to allow you to open it up and take out the little surprise inside:


I can’t wait to make some more once mine arrives!

Chrissie’s Birthday Card

It was recently my friend Chrissie’s birthday and today I have the card that I made her to share with you.  It’s a clever concept for a card and one that’s fun and easy to make.  I’ve used a few retired items in this card as it was made before the new catalogue, but it will work just as well with any of beautiful new Designer Series Papers and any number of stamps!  Just need an A4 sheet of card to start with, then a couple of score lines and cut lines and you end up with a card that opens up a little differently!

Front of the card:


Which opens up to 4 flaps with a couple of peek a boo windows:


Open the 4 flaps to reveal the whole card!


And it’s wonderful as it all fits into a regular C6 envelope!  If you’d like the measurements and instructions for this card, simply contact me HERE for the details!

Happy Stampin’!
