Clearing out my scraps!

Cards with scraps are a wonderful way to create quick and easy batch card making while using up all those bits and pieces you have piling up!

For these cards I have gone with a simple striped design and have used big bold sentiments from the Slim Sayings stamp set. This is also a good way to create masculine cards which I know can be challenging for some to create.

Punch Art Sunflowers With The Ladybug Punch!

Any opportunity I get I try to create sunflower cards with my stamping supplies. I LOVE sunflowers and how bright and cheery they are - they always make me smile when I spot some sunflowers out and about.

So when I was looking at the new Stampin' Up ladybug punch I thought to myself... 'those wings look like petals'! 

I ended up creating the below two cards, same layout but different colours and I think they both turned out great!

You can see how I created the sunflowers in the quick YouTube clip below.

For The Record..!

Today I'm sharing with you my entry for the Global Design Project sketch challenge #GDP322 and I have decided to use the playful new stamp set called For The Record!

One of my other hobbies is to scour the op-shops for second hand and vintage records to collect and enjoy during my downtime at home. There's just something special about listening to music from a record!

So I was very excited to see this stamp set in the new mini catalogue - I hope you like what I have created with it!

Tidings of Christmas Suite - Stampin' Up!

At the moment you may have noticed that Stampin' Up is having a few supply issues due to the global shipping challenges. As a result, our basic white cardstock varieties have been in and out of stock, which got me thinking about alternative options. 

Did you know that you can stamp onto cardstock of any colour - As long as your ink is dark enough to show up! No basic white cardstock??... No problem!

Our neutral card stock varieties are perfect alternatives for stamping, and for todays card I have used Sahara Sand. This card was created for the Global Design Project #319 challenge theme Christmas.

I love how the Saraha Sand provides a lovely richness to the card.

Are you team red or team blue? I can't decide!

Whimsical Trees Alternative!

Today I am playing along with the Stampin' Through The Catalogue Challenge, which is showcasing the Whimsical Trees stamp set.

I've tried to show an alternative way to use the stamp set. The suite mostly features pinks and mint green colours, so I have gone with a more striking black and white with a touch of green and gold.

For my card I used the spotted tree image to create a snowy background, and have also used white embossing to create a glistening snow bank!

I absolutely love the Whimsical Trees stamp set! 

Don't forget to pick up your Stampin' Up supplies from my online store HERE!

Simple card making with Color & Contour Stamp Set - Stampin' Up!

While attending OnStage recently I saw a really cute card created by one of the Stampin Up staff members, Emma Parkin-Wilson, and I thought it would be a great layout to case.

So I couldn't wait to give it a go and create my own version. For my card I used the Color & Contour Stamp Set and combined it with some bright happy colours!

The design is simple and easily replicable yet it packs a punch! How about you give it a try?

Remember, you can pick up your Stampin' Up supplies through my online store HERE!

On Stage! On Stage! On Stage!

 I have had the absolute BEST weekend at ON STAGE yaaaayyyyy!

The annual Stampin' Up On Stage convention was held online this year, and I spent Thursday evening, Friday and Saturday at the computer experiencing sneak peeks of the upcoming mini catalogue, new products, crafty presentations, business building tips & tricks and celebrating the success of all the wonderful demonstrators around the globe!

This year is also the 15th Anniversary of Stampin' Up being in the South Pacific, so of course we had to have a cake to celebrate!

As well as viewing On Stage, the Crazy Crafters team joined together on all day zoom sessions where we were able to watch together and bounce off each other, just as if we were all present together in person!

Feeling FOMO? I don't blame you!! If you join my team (fabulous joining special on in November 2021!) you too can attend these types of events and become a part of an amazing community of like minded crafty folks! JOIN HERE!!

During the event, demonstrators took part in a 'Stamp & Share Experience' where we all crafted along with the host of the event using brand new products. I filmed myself during the session so that I could share the experience with you all as well! You can check out the projects and video below, as well as the measurements you will need for you to create these projects yourself too!
