Scrapbooking Global - Stampin' Up! June Blog Hop.

Welcome to the first Scrapbooking Global - Stampin' Up! Design Team Blog hop.
A new catalogue has so many wonderful things in it but this one is extra special - we have had a colour revamp and welcomed 16 new and returning colours plus a new set of Incolors to our range. Some of the colours even moved families!

We wanted to have a look at some of the new colours on this hop with a splash of black and white.
I though it was a perfect time to introduce myself and my family. I'm an Australian Demonstrator and my initial passion was scrapbooking - I love that everything Coordinates perfectly! The tall Dude is my Hubby Tony and together we have 3 young ladies in our family, Eilish, Maeve and Tara.
 
 

I have use the new Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper that features some favourite colours of mine plus some new ones. Its a 12x12 pack so its great for backgrounds and full page scrapping.
The colours that coordinate with this pack are Grey Granite, Night of Navy, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Soft Sea Foam and Whisper White. Its part of the Twinkle Twinkle suite as is the divine Petal Pink / silver bakers twine.

 
I used the Night of Navy marker to faux stitch the centre piece of DSP. you will also note my photos have had the edges distressed - I used a nail file to do this.
 

 
The suite is lovely and will be a great addition to your collection - I look forward to spending more time with it.

All about the Kids - SBTD June Blog Hop


What a wonderful new catalogue with so many great new goodies to fall in love with! I would have to say it has so far been the busiest catalogue releases since I signed as a demonstrator! Welcome to the June Stampers By The Dozen Blog Hop so glad you could join us for this celebration of all things kids.

My kids are adolescents and young ladies so their tastes are maturing as far as the cards they are happy to snitch from my box and gift.

 
 
I had to get this stamp set because I fell in love with the card in the catalogue and I wanted to recreate it with my friends. How does it fit into the 'kids' theme? Well I have now made 6 because my kids love the card and want some for their friends birthdays.
 

 
 
I will admit I am rather partial to balloons - there is even a category here on my blog for cards that contain balloons. This set has matching framelits even the balloon has one with its string included in the framelit.


Thanks for popping in - I'm looking forward to spending more time with this set - you should see the cool candles in it! Now lets pop on over to Tashana's Blog and check out her "Postcard Pals' - This set is high on my wish list - need to do an extra shift at the hospital for some more spending money I think!

Stampin' Up! Stamparatus Fun

The time has come that everyone can get their hot little hands on their own Stamparatus - have you got yours yet?


This is A must-have tool for all stampers, the Stamparatus helps you perfectly align stamp images, stamp multiples of the same project quickly and precisely, and get complete ink coverage.

Think about how much easier 3 step stamping with Photopolymer stamps is going to be - check out Baby Bear below - I know so many stamping friends that feared this bear!



 
It was created by stampers for stampers, so it has all the features you want:

Compatible with red rubber and photopolymer stamps
2 magnets to hold the paper in place
Rulers on 2 sides for quick measuring
2 open sides so you can use larger paper
Multiple hinges for more placement options
2 reversible plates for 4 sides to work with
1 foam mat for use with photopolymer
1 base with grid
Magnet storage areas
 
 

 
I love the Hand Delivered Hostess set - this stamp set is perfect for use in the Stamparatus - that poster board fits so many stamps throughout the catalogue - use the plastic with it printed on it that comes in the stamp case to check.

 

 
Here is what Stampin' Up! have to say about the Stamparatus.

2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue Sharing what we love - ESAD Blog Hop June 2018


Yay its LIVE! Have you created your wish list yet? Mine is huge and will take all year to save then spend the funds lol. No wish list yet? Well welcome to the ESAD New Catalogue Blog Hop - let us add a plethora of goodies to your list. You will find a link at the bottom of this post that takes you to a downloadable version of the catalogue if you don't have a hard copy yet. You can order a paper version through the online store or ask your demonstrator for a copy. 
 
Lets HOP to it -

I have gone with a scrap page this month - I am loving this Octopus so had to do a page with him on it and yay I have a heap of photos from a trip to Hawaii to suit. My Miss Tara was having a ball with the green screen photo opportunity on the cruise we went on.

 
 
The background is made using bubbles - a small amount of water in a cup (about a third) a drop of dish deteregent and some reinker - I used Bermuda Bay for this one. Use a straw to blow bubbles lots of bubbles scrape them off the top of the cup onto your paper then let them dry.
 

The fish and 'pebbles' are all stuck on with the Fine Tip Glue - it dries clear and not sticky like other adhesives.

 
I don't know about everyone else but I am not a fan of my handwriting - however I value it and the joy it will bring my kids once I'm no longer here. I have a treasured recipe book of my nans - can't read most of it as her hand writing was shocking but I love it because it is hers.
 
 
 

 
Thanks for stopping past on your journey through the Hop - there is a list below of all the participants but if you want to go to the next person Fiona - then just hit the big blue button and it will take you straight there. I can't wait to see what goodies she has to share.

Stampin' Up! Bird Banter - a loud chatter amongst the trees.

This is a very sweet set and I started loving it the moment I got my hot little hands on it. I saw my boy Roy in a stamp and that's a big deal. You can see a post I did about him HERE from when I shared a Memories and More Page I did.

 
I have shared a few of my samples from On Stage November 2017 Melbourne Australia but not all of them - so I though I might add a few to the blog as we bid this set a fond farewell as its retiring at the end of this week.
 


This set covers more occasions than there is sentiments in the packet - below is a card that was given as an engagement congratulations card. Those 2 little lovebirds - Budgies are perfect together and I'm glad the set had them one in each direction.
How lush does the Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder look in the foil?


Those demonstrators that were in Melbourne know I love balloons - I think I mentioned it a few times lol - these were fun to colour with the aqua painter and have a pretty sheen/sparkle because of the shimmer card that the camera just doesn't catch.
I have used the budgie and balloons on this card that can be found HERE - he is just super cute!



Well that's all for Bird Banter from me - I don't know about you but I can't wait to get a hold of the new stamps in the new catalogue - haven't shortened my wish list to match my budget yet so better get cracking. I think I might just put everything in 'need' order and work my way through the list over the coming months!

 Basic supplies list as you can recreate these cards with any colours - if you do I'd love to see them so feel free to pop a message to my Facebook Page with a pic.
