Elegant butterfly card

Hi My stamping friends!

Today I have another little card to share with you using some of the gorgeous Sale-a-bration designer series papers and buttons! When I ordered these I also purchased the Elegant butterfly punch which was a new one in the year's annual Stampin' up! catalogue. I love the detail in the butterfly punch. Here the butterfly at top left has some little pearls adhered to it and the butterfly at the bottom right is like a window that looks through to the pretty patterned paper beneath.

I just love these buttons too! They are the perfect size to attach a little sentiment to and here I have used the "miss you so much"  from Teeny tiny sentiments.
The base card and button is Pool party and the other featured colours are Rich razzleberry, Summer starfruit and whisper white. 

Sale-a-bration runs until March 22nd and you can receive the set of Designer series papers or the buttons with 3 rolls of ribbons for free with any $100 order. There are also 17 other items including stamp sets, embossing folders, punches and other items to choose from as your freebie.
I also have a special TODAY only - receive 10% off your order! A good time to take advantage of Sale-a-bration!! Click here to view the sale-a-bration catalogue and click here to email me if you wish to place an order!
Happy Stamping,
Love, Claire

Just believe card using sale-a-bration items!

 Hi my stamping friends!

My stamping mojo has been a little lacking since we made our big move to Melbourne. But a lovely new order from Stampin' Up! has remedied that with some new toys for me to play with as well as some sale-a-bration freebies!

Have you seen the Sale-a-bration catalogue yet? It is jam packed with freebies that you can earn with every $100 order. Spend $100 (before shipping) and receive 1 freebie, spend $200 - 2 freebies! And so on...And this year there are 19 items you can choose from! Wow, right?

In this little card I have used two of the freebie items. The first is the Designer Series Paper which is called Sycamore Street. There are 12 sheets of 12x12" double sided pattern papers (2 each of 6 double sided designs). The colours in the papers are Island indigo, Pool party, Rich razzleberry, Sahara sand, Summer starfruit, Tangerine tango and Whisper white. It's a lovely bright set of papers.

The other Sale-a-bration item you will see here is the gorgeous Pool party satiny ribbon from the Sycamore street Ribbon and button pack. This is a *free* set of 3 ribbon spools (Island indigo, Pool party and Tangerine tango) PLUS 36 buttons in Pool party, Rich razzleberry and Tangerine tango.

I have also used the Just believe stamp set and gorgeous Elegant butterly punch with some adhesive pearls and the Finishing touches edgelits on the Rich razzleberry piece of cardstock. The base of the card and ink is Island indigo.

If you haven't seen the sale-a-bration goodies yet then click here to see the catalogue.

I am running a Sale-a-bration stamp club where you can place a $100 minimum order at the end of January, end of February and end of March. Each month you can also choose your free Sale-a-bration item (1 per $100 spent) plus during one of the months you will also receive hostess benefits of at least $50 to spend on any Stampin’ up items plus a free pack of silver glimmer paper! Wow! I will need a minimum of 3 people to run this club and it starts on January 29th so get back to me as soon as possible to reserve your place!

Thanks for looking! Happy Stamping,

Talking tags *new* from Stampin' Up!

Hi my Stamping friends! 

There are so many NEW products coming out at the moment! We have had our gorgeous Holiday catalogue which ends on January 31st, a new Seasonal catalogue out on the 1st February (contact me for a copy) and Sale-a-bration begins on January 22nd (Also contact me if you'd like a copy of the brochure!) But these are something new again! And available for purchase now. I think these little tags are going to be so popular! As someone with family interstate I am going to love popping these in a card in the post so the recipient will actually hear my voice when they open the card. How cool is that?! I think they will also be very popular with teens. Please read below for all the technical information and contact me if you have any questions or would like to order some Talking tags.
Happy Stamping!
Love, Claire

Talking Tag

With Talking Tag, you can send a gift that is uniquely you. Talking Tag is a message label you can attach to cards, invitations, gifts . . . anything! Personalise birthday cards, Christmas gifts or even record quick instructions for a recipe. Now your pictures really can say a thousand words!

How to send a voice message:
  1. Download the FREE TalkingTag™ App on you smartphone from, iTunes® or Google Play™.
  2. Adhere the message tag to your card or gift.
  3. Open TalkingTag™ App and scan the code.
  4. Record your message (recording starts immediately, so make sure you’re ready!).

You will have the opportunity to listen, re-record, cancel, or confirm your message after you’ve completed recording it. Each label allows up to 60 seconds of a greeting, song, or product message.

To play the message, recipients will need to download the app and scan the code. Messages are saved for two years, so they can listen to it over and over.

How to Buy Talking Tags:
Buy ‘em by the sheet! You get 10 tags for just $12.95 AU/$15.75 NZ (item 129723). Contact me to order!

Helpful Tips:
  • Adhere Talking Tag to a flat surface, otherwise the scanner can’t read the code.
  • Multiple tags can be attached to one surface, but don’t place them too close together. When scanning a message, you shouldn’t be able to see another code on the screen
  • Do not write or place any decoration over the label.
  • Talking Tag has a permanent adhesive and cannot be repositioned once attached to a surface. Attempting to remove it could tear the label, making it impossible to listen to the content.
  • A Talking Tag message label can only hold one message. Once a message is confirmed, it cannot be deleted or re-recorded

Happy New Year!

 Happy New Year my Stamping Friends! 

I hope you had a festive New years eve celebration with your loved ones. 'Twas a quiet one for us with our three little people but I was thankful to have hubby by my side when the clock struck midnight!

This is a little New years card that I thought I would make as I have been terribly disorganised with Christmas cards this year. I figure that a new years card could be received all January long so that is what I am going for here!
I've used the Betsy's blossoms stamp set and that gorgeous and bright Floral district DSP.  The colours used here are Rich razzleberry, Baja breeze and Daffodil delight. An interesting combo but it's light and bright and a perfect way to start the year I think!
The words come from the Teeny tiny sentiments stamp set that has a greeting for almost every occasion and I have cut the words out using the Bitty banners framelits.
Stampin' Up! is running a sale at the moment too! Lots of amazing savings on retired items from last year's catalogue. Click here to view the lists of what is available when. The current specials finish on January 3rd, so if you would like anything please email me and let me know what you'd like and how I can contact you to confirm your order details. There are further specials available from January 4th-10th and then from January 11th- 21st and you can view all of them via the link above.
Happy Stamping and Happy New year!!
Love, Claire
