Simple Stamping Techniques Blog Hop- January

Happy New Year! Here’s hoping 2019 will be wonderful!

This month on the Simple Stampin Techniques Design Team, we are playing with the Laser cut Specialy Paper.

There is one pack that is in the Annual Catalogue called Delightfully Detailed.(pg 189) 146907..which is what I’m using today and the new paper, which is from the new Occasions Catalogue (out today) It is called Beautifully Detailed laser cut Specialty Paper (pg 48 OC 148812).

I haven’t got this yet but will be on my next order today.

I made these for a new team member!
I love to snip out areas of this Speicalty Paper.
The Stamp set is a Demonstrator only stamp set called Stamping your way to the top.

This card and simple gift box was so easy to put together using this Laser Cut DSP. I’ve also used Gingham Gala DSP (which is a new 6×6 pack of paper in the new Occasions Catalogue (pg 35 OC 148554), Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon (white pg 200 AC 146912) and The Foliage Frame Framelits (pg 217 AC 146353)

ESAD December 2018 Blog Hop

Welcome to our ESAD December Blog Hop. This month we are showcasing simple cards/tags and 3D items using products out of the Holiday Catalogue.

You may be starting at my blog or you may have come from Lou’s Blog 

A list of blogs in this blog hop is below if you do get lost. 

I decided to concentrate on the Sincerely Santa Project Kit. I love kits that come in tins! I reuse these as gifts or for storage/display at my fortnightly market.  The other reason I like kits is the no prep work..just stamp and put together. This kit makes 30 tags and does come with an additional Stamp set called Sincerely Santa (148929).

Here’s what this kit makes. I started with 5 packs of tags and packaged them up all ready for my 2 upcoming markets this week!  These took me  a couple of hours to do.  I actually bought two kits ..knowing that I had lots of markets coming up.

The next kit, I decided to do something totally different with ..I used the Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes (131527) to make some gift card holders ..once again for my markets coming up. I used existing stamps I already had.

These are super easy to make. I just adhered the notecard to the envelope and cut off the flap. I decorated the outside Notecard with the various bits from the kit. The gift card is attached to the tag (I used a retired die to make the slits but you could just adhere with tape or a paper clip)? I popped each one in a cello bag and used the tin to keep them in …functional too! 

I had a lot of these left over as they weren’t suitable for the Notecard Gift Card holders. So, I made them into a couple of photo ornaments for the Christmas tree. Perfect as a gift instead of a Christmas card. Just pop a few photos of the family and done! 

Finally, I still had some tags left over so I grabbed some 3×3″ Whisper White envelopes (145829) and made a mini album in a Mini pizza box(144645). The envelopes were old and stuck closed so I just peeled them open and stuck them all together like a train.  I then stamped up some Whisper White cardstock to make my own DSP, added Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green Cardstock and decorated simply.  I punched one side with the Tailored Tag Punch (145667) and popped my kit tags inside for journalling on. I couldn’t add my video of this here for some reason (New wordpress editor is challenging me) ..but have popped it on my facebook page.

Onstage 2018

Wow ..its been a week since I went to Onstage in Auckland!

 For those who don’t know…this is our twice yearly conference for Stampin’ Up!

The Onstage locals are just a full one day programme but next April, New Zealand are hosting the 3 day Live event!

Cant wait for that!!

This event is only available to Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators and I was lucky enough to have some of my team in attendance.

One of the highlights for me was seeing Donna Griffiths from the Head Office ..who I have known for many years now. She conned me into presenting quite a few years ago and she was sooo lovely to me that we have remained friends since.

I met her Husband last year in SLC ..he was there and Donna was here in I missed her last year. 


I’m shown here with a couple of logo bags.

One is for our Stamparatus bag and is available to purchase by customers on the 5th of December.

The other is a tote available now for a short time for Demonstrators and is available for new Demonstrators during Sale A Bration (which starts on the 3rd January)


Here’s my little gift for my team that were there! 

This is a mini album that is made out of one Manilla Folder that we as Demonstrators can purchase on our Supply list.  The pens have my team name (Delinkquents) and they also got a calendar for their fridge, post it flags for their new catalogue and a small grid paper.

We got very spoilt at Onstage..I came home with 5 stamp sets and 3 spools of ribbon from the new Occasions Catalogue (starts 3 January).

A SU logo tool case and a SU branded bone folder!

Not to mention the whole point of the see new ideas, network with other demonstrators and catch up with old friends. 

I cant wait for April. Its going to be a blast! 

If you love Stampin’ Up! and live in New Zealand…think about joining my team? Contact me to find out more. During Sale A Bration, you get $90 more in your starter kit! 

I will be sending out/giving out new Catalogues from mid December onwards so reserve your free copy with me today! 

Happy Stampin!
