Stampin' Up! Signs of Santa - Global Stamping Friends Seasonal Fun Blog Hop




Welcome to my post of Seasonal Fun for the group Global Stamping Friends. Have you just hopped over from Rachel's Blog - how great were her projects!

I would love to share the Santa's Workshop Suite with you - I am a little sad that its not carrying over I will admit as it is a fun suite.



So this is a step fold card as my Stamp Club friends had asked me to do something 'different' but still a card. The inside also got decorated as did the envelope. This card has been made to fit into a standard Australian C6 envelope.


So here's some of the tricks we did with this card.
Using the Stamparatus they stamped all the images at once onto a 13cm square piece of whisper white cardstock.  Notice how I spaced them out so that I could cut them all at once as well. We use Stampin' Blends to colour our festive folk - everyone had the choice to colour first then cut later or cut first colour later. 





It made it a super fun quick and easy project once we made our steps. Can I suggest you practice first or create a template or example first.

Cut A4 card in half to give you a piece 14.9cm x 21cm fold in half at the 10.5 cm point. Using the trimmer measure across 8 cm then using the ruler on the clear trimmer arm (where the blade slides) starting at 5.5cm cut down to 18.5 cm, score as per the photo below. Crease the score lines in alternate directions to give the step look.
If you would like to add pieces of another colour to the front and inside these measure 
7.5cm x 10cm, (cut 2 one for the front one for the inside.)
6.5cm x 2.0cm,
6.6 x 2.5cm
6.5 x 4.5cm


So on that note I bid Signs of Santa a fond farewell as I secretly stash it away in the 'do not sell second hand draw' because this is one I have to keep.
Pleas hop on over and see what Kimberly has to share.

Stampin' Up! Dashing Deer gift card box - SBTD November Christmas Hop


Welcome to this months Stampers By The Dozen Blog Hop with a Christmas feel. 
I have been playing a lot with Dashing Deer because I love it and thought it would make a great Stamp Club project. I have made a gift box that has 5 festive gift cards and envelopes in it. The gift card box was made on the Envelope Punch Board.


Heads up I'm rushing out the door to fly to Orlando for Onstage so measurements for the Punch Board will be posted here at a later date.

   



The front of the box has been decorated with stamped DSP to add a little bit of a feature under the belly band. 




Thank you for visiting please hop on over to Tashana's blog now to see the goodies she has to share. Till next time - see you on the flip side of my trip to Florida.

Open Studio Creative Retreat November 2018


Hot off the press photos from our November Open Studio Creative Retreat.
A great 12 hour day out getting creative on the beautiful Central Coast of NSW, we had a tonne of fun and can't wait to do it all again in February next year.
Do you want to join us you can get all the information for the next retreat on our Facebook Group page HERE.


 

There is a make and take table set up so that participants can use their goodie bag contents to make some great projects.


A sample of one of our projects from this retreat.


Participants are encouraged to bring any creative endeavor they would like, this retreat we mainly had paper crafters and a lovely lady making 3D canvas pictures.


There were 2 optional classes - a Santa Stack of cards.





And a Wet n Wild Class that looked at water colouring techniques.

Masculine Scrapbook Page - Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop - Stampin' Up!


Welcome to our Scrapbooking global September Blog Hop. 
This month we have a Masculine theme happening, in a home of 3 girls where I don't usually scrap myself or hubby this was going to be a challenge all by itself. For this hop we have a group of 15 Scrapbooking Global members hopping with us. If you have joined me from Jenna's blog please continue the hop using the next button at the bottom of my page.



Back Story - it was my husbands birthday a few days ago and it was a big one! He wanted no fuss no party and definitely no spending excess money! We are off to Florida soon for the Stampin' Up! Onstage Event so we are saving every penny. I usually scrap pages of my girls - Tony is the only male in the house (lol even my mother lives here), he is significantly out numbered big time. My eldest insisted he needed a special cake - I have used the iconic Woman's Weekly Kids Cake book for all theirs when they were younger so the eldest pulled it out to get ideas for 'dads' cake.
Tony works for transport in construction and safety - hence the Lego construction dudes - all I did was bake the cake and cut the topper.
