Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek | Painted Autumn Suite

The Holiday catalogue is almost here!


One of the perks of being a Demonstrator is that we get to pre order goodies from upcoming catalogues before their release date. The Holiday catalogue is coming and the gorgeous new holiday products will be available to purchase from 1st September.

It is easy to want to get everything from the new catalogue right away, but I was being good and restrained myself and only purchased some items from the new Painted Autumn Suite (plus some shiny new washi).

My order arrived on Friday and I had a quick play over the weekend and created a quick and simple (...well relatively simple if you love fussy cutting) note card using the Painted Harvest stamp set and co-ordinating Leaf Punch. Both of these will be available as a bundle and you'll save 10%.

Here are the new Painted Autumn Suite items I purchased:

Painted Autumn Suite

Painted Harvest Bundle: Painted Harvest Stamp Set & Leaf Punch

Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper

My first play with the Painted Harvest stamp set

I'll be sending this cute note card to each of my customers
with their copy of the new Holiday Catalogue

I'll be including one of these cute little note cards and the card recipe, with the Holiday catalogue for all my customers as a taster sample product and little gift that they can keep or pay forward and share the love.

If you live in Australia and don't have a demonstrator that you currently purchase through, then I would be happy to send you a copy of the new Holiday catalogue with one of my note cards for only $2 (which is just to cover the postage costs).


My customers will be sent one FREE, so if you place an order through my online store and use the current host code, I'll pop one in the post for you. 



Oh my gosh! Metallic washi tape!!!!

In addition to my designer series paper and ribbon addictions, I am also a bit of a washi tape fan, so I couldn't go past including some shiny new metallic washi tape to my order :)

Year of Cheer Suite: Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape in Gold, Silver & Copper

Year of Cheer Suite: Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape in Gold, Silver & Copper

So pretty and shiny :) The Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape comes in Gold, Silver & Copper and has both plain and patterned tape. You'll get 5 rolls, 1 each of 5 designs and they come in 3.2mm, 6.4mm & 1.3cm widths. Each roll has 4.6m of tape.

I haven't had a chance yet to create with these, but hope to soon.

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Martha Inchely


Hello Sunshine :)

Welcome and thank you for joining me in a special Crazy Crafters team blog hop.

We are hopping with a special guest - The talented Martha Inchely from Canada.

Martha was chosen as a member of this years Artisan Design Team, how exciting! Something I know that myself and a lot of demonstrators aspire to be (maybe one day .... a girl can dream can't she :) ).

The theme of this blog hop was to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) one of Martha's cards.

Here is the card of Martha's that I chose to CASE:


To checkout Martha's card in more detail click here.


Here is my version:


I recently received my A Little Wild bundle, which consists of the A Little Wild stamp set and matching Little Loves framelits, and I just wanted to have a play.

So my take on Martha's card has a bright, happy and cute feel.


My colour combination consists of Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight & Old Olive. There is also a little Pumpkin Pie & Melon Mambo in the colouring of my lion.

My lion is stamped in Memento ink on a piece of Whisper White, which was cut out with a circle die and coloured using alcohol markers. I used my Stampin' Up! retired Blendabilities in Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie & Melon Mambo.

Since the matching framelits are to make cute little tags, I partially cut the lion shape out of the Crumb Cake and had to hand cut the rest out, which was only the top of his mane.

The vine, also from the Little Love framelits was cut out twice using Old Olive cardstock and adhered to my Crumb Cake layer.

My sentiment is made using the Labeler Alphabet stamp set and the Sunshine die from the Sunshine Wishes thinlits.

Using some new mini dimensionals (gee, I love those little things) I lined up my lion with his cut out shape and adhered them together. Then to finish it off I added more mini dimensionals on my Crumb Cake layer and a bit of glue on the back of the lion's circle and adhered it to my card base.

Hope you like it :)
