This month our Monthly Online tutorial is using the Timeless Tulips bundle You can get these tutorials from our worldwide design team by buying the tutorials ($10.25 NZD or equivalent in each market) or if you spend $37 worth of Stampin” Up! products from me, you can get these tutorials for free.
Below is a sneak peek of all of our tutorials
And as usual we are having a blog hop today so here is my blog hop card.
The colours I used for this card were Old Olive and Lovely Lipstick.
I love to think outside the square with stamps and this just showcases that you can make other flowers out of the tulip stamp set. I think this still looks like a tulip but a Peony Tulip? What do you think?

Ive been quiet on here lately partly because of work but also because Ive been making samples for our Creative Inkers Annual Stamp Camp of which I presented the Peaceful Poppies Suite (153938)
That was last weekend and 60 of us had an absolute blast from Friday Night until Sunday afternoon!
So I will be showcasing this suite over the next week so check back often on what I shared to my fellow wider team members.
This was their Make n Take after the presentation.
I diecut everything for them all they had to do was emboss with the Coastal Weave Embossing folder and punch out the 3rd flower with the Sale a bration Small Bloom Punch which you can get if you place a $220 order. This whole bundle which is on Page 25 of the Mini Catalogue is $288 and includes everything on this page! So you could get this punch for free.
The pot or planter was a pouch and included a small bag of Poppy Seeds for everyones garden. It is all attached to a popsicle stick which some inserted into the Pool Party pouch and fixed it in and others made it removeable.
I also showcased a paper poppy I made using both Bundles.
This is a make n take for a craft group I go to this week in Papamoa.
Its a badge they can make and wear for Anzac Day. Its a gold coin donation to make it and we will donate the money to the RSA (Returned Services Association) to help veterans. Let me know if you are interested in the group…we meet every Thursday and everyone does their own thing from papercraft, embroidery, knitting, crotchet, patchwork or just colouring in.
Our February Tutorial is now live! What is super exciting is that it is our one year anniversary so this tutorial bundle is free!
Normally, you can get these tutorials from our worldwide design team by buying the tutorials ($10.25 NZD) or if you spend $37 worth of Stampin” Up! products from me, you can get these tutorials for free.

This month we are showcasing what we love ..each of us are using a technique and for me it is brayering.
Each tutorial includes a link to our youtube video. You can get this pdf below. Danielle has had internet issues but we are just updating with her tutorial in the next day or so
I’ve taught many how to brayer but I’ve kept this tutorial simple so anyone can do it. Please see my video (excuse all the umms and ahhs). I’ve also had technical glitches with my internet so could’nt edit my video.
We always have a blog hop and here is my blog hop card I’ve done using the Honey Bee bundle (153792) and again with brayering as the technique.

This month our theme is courtesy of Design Team Member Sara Levin and is a Holiday Theme
This theme could be about Christmas or any general holiday.
Here is my Double Layout showing a holiday that my Husband and I did earlier this year.
We spent a week heading around the East Coast of New Zealand.
This area is not far from where we live but I haven’t been in parts of the East Coast since I was little.
I think we take our own country for granted and dont see all of it so it was a special trip that we both enjoyed.
You can do this drive in one day but we spent the time relaxing and exploring the whole area.
What was extra special about this trip is that Hubby and I found a long lost unmarked family grave so My Mum, Sister, Daughter and I had to head back around there a couple of months ago with a plaque for her grave.
A special time.
I have made these that they can be stand a lone Layouts or next to each other as a double in my album.
For these pages, I used Whisper White 12 x12 Cardstock,Black Cardstock, Bird Ballad DSP, Shimmer Detailed Laser Cut Specialty Paper, Friendly Silhouette Dies, Hand Lettered Prose Dies, Merry Christmas Dies and White Bakers Twine
Now off we go to the next blog on our Scrapbooking Global Blog hop ..
So today we have a blog hop to launch our monthly tutorial and we always do an extra card, LO or project with our featured item every month and here is mine.
Ive used The Cheers Dies(HC 150669) and the Sip and Celebrate Dies (HC 150668) and the Cheers Dies (HC 153048). I’ve also used Come to Gather DSP (HC 150454) for the Tablecloth and I used the Brick and the Mortar Embossing Folder (149643)
So make sure you check out all of the other design team on our blog hop today showcasing this beautiful product!

I actually struggle to do double layouts so this is a challenge for me especially but also because I am often asked to teach double layouts.
So, this blog hop is to give us all some inspiration along the way! Cant wait to see what everyone comes up with!
So here is what Ive come up with.
This Layout is all ready for me to put my photos in as the event hasnt happened yet (will happen this Saturday) when my Mum, Sister and Daughter drive 3 1/2 hours to affix a plaque to my Aunties grave who died as child. The grave was unmarked and we werent sure where she was until earlier this year.
I have used a Designer Series Paper that will be for sale next month and is called Christmastime is here Specialty DSP.
This left hand side is actually a challenge sketch LO that I have put up on Scrapbooking Global for the month of October. I just added another page to it to create my double LO.
I have also used Shimmer Detailed Laser cut Paper (AC pg 169), Simmery White Emboossing Paste (AC pg 181), Ornate Frame dies (HC pg 53), Basic Pattern decorative masks (HC pg 35) and the beautiful ribbon is Real Red Ruched ribbon (HC pg 7) The title dies are Hand Lettered Prose (AC pg 193) and Word Wishes (AC pg 197)
Now off we go on our blog hop. Even though I have done a double LO, I have left it open to interpretation as the theme of Seeing Double.
