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.
All of my Stampin’ Up! team get these for free too.
Heres a sneak peak.
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.

We also have a blog hop project happening today and here is mine ..a Scrapbooking Layout of our daughter at 4 years old.
This Stamp set (Born to Shine pg 143 149244) was a must have for me as our Daughter has just completed an Honours Dance degree and teaching Diploma and next year will be a High School Dance and Drama teacher!
p.s..She is probably not happy that Ive shared this photo of her as its not particularly flattering of her but I just love the real Jennifer in this photo! Such a cutie!
I have used the new Basic Pattern Decorative Masks (150697 Holiday Catalogue pg 35) with some Shimmery White Embossing Paste as well for my background.
My favourite new dies are also in the Holiday Catalogue pg 53.. Ornate Frames Dies (150664).
I also used the Sweet Silhouette Dies (AC pg 196 149541) and Hand Lettered Prose dies(AC pg 193 149550).
I Just had to include the cute mini Library clips too (AC pg 177 149445)…I loved these when we had them before and will be hoarding more!
Please click on the below blue box to see all the other Design Team Members creations using the Pigment Sprinkles.
I belong to a craft group that donates cards to the NZ armed forces positioned overseas every year ..I thought heck we havent got some cards for our Navy guys and girls so made these on a rare day off that Ive had.
I made 14 of these using the Come Sail Away Memories and More card pack (149552 pg 171) and I used the Magnolia Lane Memories and More cards and envelopes (149487 pg 171).
These came together very quickly! I didn’t stamp any. The Lasercut cards in this pack are incredible and just give the wow factor.
Today on my one day off from day job, I attended my Papamoa Craft group and did 30 quick Christmas cards using a retired Memories and More set…once again for the NZ troops overseas. I love this group and all that they do. We have a varied membership and knit, sew., quilt, scrapbook, make cards, embroider and generally have a great time chatting. Contact me if you live nearby and want to attend.
