New Class Coming! Birthday Cards!

This is Stampin’ Up!’s Perennial Birthday Project Kit – well what you can make with the contents of the project kit! I’m offering this class on FOUR different occasions at the end of February/beginning of March. The kit itself includes the consumable supplies for the cards, plus the box and dividers. When you register and prepay for your class (deadline for registration is February 14th), you’ll get one of these kits which will be waiting for you at the class time you pick. At the class, I will have the adhesives, inks and stamps for you to complete these projects so you can stamp them up, assemble them, and be ready for the next birthday on your list….or have it ready to wrap and give as a gift!! This would be a thoughtful and handy gift for Mother’s Day, a birthday, thank you/hostess or Easter or…just because?!

Class will be held in north Burlington – directions will be sent to you when you register.

CLASS DATES AND TIMES:
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28TH – 1pm OR 7pm
THURSDAY, MARCH 1 – 7PM
SATURDAY, MARCH 3 – 1PM
Class fee is $55 and includes the kit and use of the inks/stamps/adhesives to complete your projects. Contact me to register.

OPTIONS: Add on a $25 product order to receive your choice of a Level 1 Sale-a-Bration item.
Can’t make these dates/times? Get a group of friends together and I will bring the class to you!! Contact me for more details.

Happy New Year! Happy Sale-a-Bration!

Sale-a-Bration Birthday Card

Happy Sale-a-Bration! Happy New Year! Nothing like beginning the new year with new products. Stampin’ Up! Canada’s Occasions and Sale-a-Bration cataloogues are now in effect! The sample above uses the NEW Sale-a-Bration Level 2 set, Happy Wishes, which is available in either clear mount or wood mount.

That’s right, new this year – level 2 Sale-a-Bration items! As in previous years, for each $60 in product order (in a single order), you can earn a free Sale-a-Bration itme. This year, though, if you order $120 in product in a single order, there’s two exclusive Level 2 rewards you can select! One is the set above, the other is a set of thinlits called Celebrate You.

The other ways to be rewarded during Sale-a-Bration – you can either host a cardmaking party, or purchase the Demonstrator Starter kit! Hosts with qualifying total party sales will be eligible for extra Stampin’ Rewards, and new demonstrators will receive TWO additional stamp sets of their choice from either the Annual or Occasions catalogues! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or want to book a date to either chat about the starter kit or to host your own cardmaking party – or both!

Other items on this Z-fold card – the Petal Pair Embossing Folders, and some Pearl Basic Jewels that I coloured with the Pink Pirouette Dark Stampin’ Blends marker.

As always – you can shop online 24/7 in the YamStamps Online Stampin’ Up! Canada store, or please feel free to contact me if you need assistance placing your order or have any questions! Happy Sale-a-Bration!

Metallic Birthday Card

,Metallic Birthday Card

This metallic birthday card showcases Stampin’ Up!’s Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper – one of my current favourite papers. I love the elegance of the metallic designs and how they can be used for almost any occasion! I think that the pattern on this paper is like a stylized mistletoe….but because of the metallic colours I felt okay using it on a non-Christmas card.

For this elegant, easy birthday card, the greeting from Butterfly Basics (available in wood mount, clear mount or photopolymer) (one of the few sets available in all three stamp options) was embossed in Silver onto Whisper White cardstock. To keep the metallic theme going, the sentiment was then backed with Silver Foil and then placed on top the the Designer Series Paper. Clean and simple, and easy. Just my kind of crafting! I think that the clean lines and graphics also make for a great masculine card.

I apologize for the bit of radio silence over the last little while. I am currently attending the Stampin’ Up! On Stage Live event in Salt Lake City as part of their Events Council. I promise to write more later about this experience (once I’m allowed….and once I’ve recovered LOL). The last while has been crazy busy with preparation for the event itself. I did a presentation on Friday (well, technically 3 of them, since I had to repeat it at 3, 4 and 5pm) sharing an upcoming product suite and some ideas for how to use it in a class. It was a lot of fun once I was over the initial stress and nerves!
