ESAD Colour Your Season Blog Hop


Welcome to another amazing ESAD blog hop!


This months Blog hop is featuring the Colour Your Season bundle which I have been showcasing on my blog all month long!

Here are my final projects that Ive done, using this wonderful bundle.

I just love the dies in this bundle so first up here’s a card I made.. also using the Wood Textures  and Tranquil Textures Designer Series Papers.  The trim is a sneak peek of a product coming in our Holiday Catalogue which starts next month!

Thank you blended

The little heart is from the Frames Elements (AC pg 199)

Next up is a scrapbooking LO I did of our Centrestage event in April  this year. This Centrestage event is for Silver Elite and above before our SU Onstage event the following day. (We have a Stampin’ Up! event twice a year).

This event was a real hoot as we got asked if we wanted to dress up in our best 80s gear! Here’s a bunch of us decked out in our spiffy gear ..hehe

I embossed some of these framelits to showcase our embossing folders on this LO.

Believe it or team member Karen and I found the track suits at our local The Warehouse along with the mirror sunglasses at a local discount goes around it seems!  We thought that was really funny!

It was lovely to catch up with my fellow leaders at Centrestage. In this photo we have Amanda, Jackie, Kristine, Pauline, Karen and Julia.

Finally, not forgetting these very versatile stamps!

I made these for some of my team members for a competition I held on my team facebook page.

These Pillow Boxes (AC pg 193) are rather cute aren’t they? They are kraft coloured but I heat embossed the flower in white and then coloured the rest of the front in my Light Cherry Cobbler Blend (pg 205)

Once again I used the Frames Elements and showcasing a new trim available in the Holiday Catalogue.

Scrapbooking Global August Blog Hop



This months Blog hop is using Memories and More with a secondary theme of school days if you want!

I decided to use both using photos of our Daughters graduation.  I love scrapbooking a special photo..but love to do multi photo Layouts too.

Most of the time I use them in the Memories and more pocket pages ..which are so quick and easy but this LO only took me 1.5 hours to make ..super quick when you are using the Memories and More range!

Just smile-001

The Memories and More pack I used was the Tea Room Memories and More card pack (pg 195) and I teamed it up with the Tea Room Specialty Paper. I love the copper elements in this card pack which include overlays and cards. I just added some more copper foil diecuts, a brad and some metallic sequins to tie these in. The dies I used were Delicate Lace Edgelits (pg 217), Layering Circles Framelits (pg 218) and Sunshine Wishes Thinlits (pg 220)

Just smile 2-001

There is absolutely no stamping on this Layout!

I’ve left the bottom of the photos for our daughter to write in the names of her peers who graduated with her.

I cant wait to see what everyone else has done using Memories and More of this blog hop!

Blended Seasons and new goodies!

Ive had a super exciting weekend with some new goodies arriving on my doorstep on Friday.  It was very tempting to get them all out to play but ..I’m still playing with the Colour Your Season bundle and I needed a card for a friends birthday!

This time I got my sponge brayer out to use with the grass type stamp in the Blended Seasons Stamp set and away I went!

Here is the card.


Happy Birthday dear friendHappy Birthday dear friend.jpg1


I’ve teamed it up with the Very Vintage Hostess set (AC..annual catalogue page 227), the Classic Label punch (AC pg 210), Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight Blends (AC pg 205) and a couple of new items available in the 2018 Holiday Catalogue. (Chicken wire elements and Braided linen trim).

If you are in New Zealand, have ordered off me in the last six months ..then you will get a Holiday Catalogue automatically.

If you don’t have a Demonstrator and would like a Holiday Catalogue then email me or message me on my SU Facebook page. You can see both of these over on my sidebar.

I’ve still got more to show with this Colour Your Season Bundle..with a blog hop on swing by my page and check that out?



Shabby Chic Crate

A friend of mine mentioned that she would love some tags for gifts so set me to work to come up with some for her.

I made the tags using the Colour Your Season promotion products and then thought they looked a little Shabby Chic and maybe some packaging in that style would go well with them?

Here’s what I came up reminds me of decoupaged crates you see in Antique shops (a favourite pastime of mine!)

colour tags

I used the new watercolour pencils for this project.

There are 10 new colours and these pencils may be in another publication ..but why wait? Get them this month!

I stamped in Sahara Sand onto Shimmery white and watercoloured with Granny Apple Green,  Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo and an original colour ..Daffodil Delight.

The Wood Crate is part of the Wood Crate Framelit dies (pg 221 AC)

I hope she likes them!

Oh of course I’m going to pop some chocolate in there too I know she has a sweet tooth! I might just have to check that the chocolate is perfect first…

What are friends for ..right?

Let me know if you would like to order any of this wonderful bundle of products?

Now wheres that chocolate…

Blended Seasons LO#1

This month we have an awesome exclusive promotion which I’ve shared previously ..stamps, dies and pencils..What a wonderful combination but the Dies really float my boat!

This LO is for the Scrapbooking Global Make it Metallic Challenge for August.

Having done this challenge ..its hard to photograph the copper embossing believe me it is better in real life. Its one of my more arty technique Layouts for one of my classes.


august LO 2018.jpg1august LO 2018.jpg

I used copper Embossing for most of my stamped elements and also sprinkled over the background. What you cant really see is the copper embossed wooden elements and the stamping techniques I’ve used on the sides…perfect for my Te Puke August Scrapbooking class.

Happy Stamping


I Just Miss You!

I just miss you


Here’s a card I made for our daughter who has headed back to university recently.

She was home for a month in between semesters.

Once again I used the Colour your season bundle. I’m in love with these dies!

I mean ..don’t get me wrong, I love the pencils and the stamp set but these dies just float my boat!

I teamed this card up with the Wood Textures DSP (144177) and the gorgeous Subtle Embossing Folder (143706). I used Whisper White and Granny Apple Green for this card.
