I have finalised the projects for June’s creative classes and I am very satisfied with the projects – in fact, I can’t wait to share them with you. Numbers are limited, so don’t delay in reserving your spot.
This month I am featuring the Brusho Colour Crystals which are amazing for adding that splash of colour. They are easy to work with once you understand how they react with water and even other liquids. Brusho can be used directly on stamps, embossing folders but I feel that the magic happens when you add water on Shimmery White cardstock or Watercolour Paper. You will not want to miss this class – you will be blown away by how artistic you will be.
For June’s Technique Teaser, the Garden Impressions Suite (p. 128-130 of the Annual Catalogue) is taking centre stage with a little bit of help from a few simple fun folds. Fancy folds can sometimes be a little overwhelming, so this month, I am featuring fun folds, simple folds that WOW.
The release of the Stampin’ Up! 2018-19 Annual Catalogue brings some fabulous innovative, creative and downright exciting products to the paper crafting world. And to share these amazing products I have scheduled two events to celebrate – my catalogue launch party on Sunday 10 June ’18 and a Facebook Live Party on Monday, 11 June 18. Each of these will have prizes and some exclusive special offers.
So which is my favourite product from Stampin’ Up!’s brand new 2018-19 Annual Catalogue? What an impossible question but for June’s Global Stampers Blog Hop Challenge, I chose to feature the Serene Garden Stamp Set and coordinating Garden Scene Framelits Dies to create a gorgeous feminine birthday card. Check it out.

But as always, these bargains sell out quickly, so don’t delay. There are punches, dies, Designer Series Paper, cardstock (always the first to go), Stampin’… Read More »
