Exclusive Kits and Gift

Just a reminder, that one lucky person who :-

Places an order before the end of September OR
Orders an Exclusive Creative Kit (£19.75 incl. postage) OR
Orders one of my shares ....

.... has the opportunity to win this Exclusive Gift ... 


If you place your order online please use the hostess code RUVCQTMK if your order is under £150.... 

I've had a few people ask about some of the papers that I've been using with the Memories & More cards in the Exclusive Creative Kit.  I'll let you into a secret ... they're not papers, they're the larger cards that are contained in the kit.   I literally trimmed the card down to just under 14.5cm and used it as background paper.


INSTRUCTIONS:-
On the card above, I trimmed the striped paper down to 13.5cm, then punched out 6 x 3/4" black circles, glued them to the edge of the striped paper and then glued this to the card base.  I used the Merry & Bright sentiment card from the set and added a strip of rhinestones where shown.  I then tucked half of a silver foil snowflake to this layer.  Lastly, I attached this to the striped paper using the miniature dimensionals.  Voila!  Easy peasy!

Details for the Exclusive Creative Kit are in the post below,, as are details of my Paper and Embellishment Share.

Combine elements of my exclusive embellishment selection to create stunning Christmas, Halloween or home decor projects.

With the embellishment kit, I knocked out these beautiful wired ribbon bows in no time (until I started faffing with the bow) I'm definitely going to order more of the striped ribbon and make slightly smaller bows for this years Christmas tree, and then use it again on the gift wrapped christmas presents that I give out to family and friends - what would you use it for?!?!

It's Limited .... and it's beautiful!

Merry Patterns - Limited Edition
LIMITED EDITION: If you place a £250 order, as an extra bonus, you will receive this limited edition stamp set for free -  It will not be offered again, and truly is a one-off set ...  This is a two-step stamping set, which means that you stamp the outline of the image first, then stamp again filling in the outline.

Here is a great video from Stampin' Up! demonstrating this set ....


And here are a couple of my samples ...



Instructions:  Cut a triangle from the Merry Music designer series papers and adhere to the card base as shown above. Stamp the 'tis the ....." using black ink onto white cardstock.  Mount onto Old olive cardstock leaving a slight border.  Adhere to the right hand side of the card as shown above.  Stamp the outline of the word 'season' in black ink onto white cardstock.  I have then filled in  the outline with the pattern stamp in real red and olive green markers.  To give it even more pattern and to make it a little different,  I gently spritzed water over the inked stamp, and stamped over the outline.  Mount onto old olive cardstock and adhere over the triangle shape of Merry Music papers as shown.  Finally, punch a red bow, construct and adhere to the right hand side of the card as shown above.  Voila.... a quick and easy card!


Instructions:  Make a card base using crumb cake cardstock.  Add a piece of the wooden-style stack papers leaving a 1/8 border of crumb cake.  Using a darker piece of the wooden-style papers, make a 2 1/2" wide 'tail' and add it to the left hand side of the card as shown above.  Stamp the 'tis the season' stamp in black ink onto white cardstock, and colour in the word 'season' using Early espresso and slate grey marker pens.   Cut out using one of the large scallop circles from the circle layering framelits.  Cut out a circle slightly larger than the scallop circle and adhere the scallop circle on top.  Using a piece of left-over wooden-style paper, stamp and cut out the stag.  I lightly coloured the edges using the Early espresso marker and made the body more definite using the marker with the blender pen ... cut out the stag and adhere using the small dimensionals..  Add twine as shown above to finish off your card.  Voila! another easy card.

I can see me using this set to make lots of my personal Christmas cards.  I love it!

When you place your order, please use the shop now button and use the hostess code shown on the right >>>> you may be the lucky one who will earn this set for free at the end of the month.  If your order is over £150 please do not use the code as you will be entitled to your own hostess benefits.

If you have any questions or queries, please contact me on carole.bryson@gmail.com or call/text me on 07747 465186 .

Happy Crafting!   Cal xxxx

Launch Day - Autumn/Winter Catalogue!

It's launch day of the Autumn/Winter 2017 catalogue.  It's filled to the brim with heaps of lushness and loveliness
There's tons and tons of loveliness that you can find HERE


I've combined the above Memories & More winter cards with  the fabulous Merry Little Xmas designer series papers .....

..... the cute foil snowflake doilies ......

and made the cards below ... there are loads more cards, but I'll just show you these samples for now....

The sentiment sets that I  have used for the majority of my cards - and which I will use for all my personal cards, are the beautiful Watercolour Christmas stamp set - at only £16 for unmounted, I think you'll agree that this stamp set is a much-needed-bargain!  The second stamp set I have used is part of a bundle, and is the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set - on its own, the stamp set is £20, which again I think is a bargain!
Watercolour Christmas
Snowflake Sentiments

memories & more cards with Snowflake Sentiments Stamp Set

memories & more cards - great for money or gift cards

merry music designer series paper & Watercolour Christmas stamps
And just to show a further example of how the Memories & More cards can be used, below is a traditional scrapbook page using the cards.  This page will be offered as an upcoming Scrapbook page class.


The scrapbook page above uses the Christmas Pines framelit set, the new Swirly Snowflake framelits, the large scallop circle from the circle framelits,  Memories & More Merry Little Christmas Cards and Merry Little Christmas designer series paper.

I think if you are an experienced scrapbooker, then you would be able to follow this design easily.  If you have any other questions, then please ask.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing just a small selection of my samples that I have been making - I will be adding more shortly ... however, please remember ... that at the beginning of any catalogue, products sell out very very quickly ..... so please make sure you place your orders as soon as possible.

You can order direct via my shop link to the right of my blog 'shop now' ... or you can email me on carole.bryson@gmail.com  or you can call/text me on 07747 465186

ADVANCE WARNING ..... I WILL BE ANNOUNCING MY CARD AND SCRAPBOOK CLASSES VERY SHORTLY.  Card classes will be bi-weekly on a Wednesday morning and Saturday morning (same class just different days)  - and the Scrapbook classes will be held bi-weekly on a Wednesday morning and Saturday morning (same class just different days).  Every 6 weeks there will be a stamp-a-stack card day (full day)  and every 4 weeks there will be a scrapbook day (full day).

So, grab a coffee and a chocolate biscuit and enjoy the catalogue!  If you would like a hard copy, then please contact me (as above), and I will get one out in the post to you.

Happy Crafting!

As promised, cardmakers .....

Whether you are in to cardmaking, scrapbooking, memory making (project life) etc., this bundle of goodies will be perfect for you.





The cards above have one thing in common ... and it's NOT the colour scheme.

They have both been created using the fantastic Memories & More Petal Garden card pack (Item No 144208) combined with the matching Petal Garden designer series papers in 6x6 size.

No longer are these beautiful cards used for just project life 'style' scrapbooking, but they can be used for so much more.  I've created lots of quick and easy traditional scrapbook pages using them, plus some project life style pages ... however, as there are always so many cards in a pack, I needed to use them up ....  voila!  quick and easy cards.  I made a stack of cards in a day for a variety of different occasions.  What would normally have taken me a good few weeks to make as many cards, literally took me a few hours!  Winner winner chicken dinner!  I'm all for easy ...

Here are a few more samples ...



The main sentiments came from a fantastic stamp set from the new main catalogue called Colourful Seasons ... and it really is a stamp set for all seasons, so you will be seeing a lot more of it soon!  It also has a matching framelit set with snowflakes, branches, flowers, leaves etc., and it covers just about every occasion!

So, the bundle I have for you today is the Petal Garden Bundle Pack you will receive:-

Petal Garden Memories and More pack of cards (72 cards PLUS embellishments)
Petal Garden  6 x 6 designer series papers
A full pack of thick white A4 card
A full pack of C6 white envelopes
A full pack of matching glitter enamel dots
10 sheets of matching coloured A4 cardstock( 2 each of the following; sweet sugarplum, rich razzleberry, pool party, old olive and calypso coral)

The cost of the bundle is £37.50 and that includes a great discount!  P&P is set at £2.50

PLUS- As a special offer for purchasing the bundle, you can buy the Colourful Seasons stamp set for £20 instead of the usual £24.  If you would prefer to purchase the Colourful seasons bundle (stamps and framelits) then the cost is £44 instead of the usual £48.50 - what have you got to lose!

To place your order for any of the above, or if you have any questions, then please contact me on carole.bryson@gmail.com or call/text me on 07747 465186.   I will not place the order until it has been paid for - after that, you will receive your order within 7 days (dependent upon shipping from Stampin' UP)

I would just like to add a quick thanks to everyone who has sent cards, left Facebook messages, emails and phone calls after my Mothers horrendous accident in Copenhagen.  She is slowly getting out and about again, but it will be a long time before she's 100%.  Your kindness and thoughtfulness has meant a great deal to us all.

PS:  thank you to my amazing customers who have placed orders this month - I am so near to my target that I can smell it ... if you would be so kind as to pass on my posts and offers to your friends, it would mean a great deal ... the countdown to the end of September will start next week with the launch of the new Autumn/Winter catalogue!

Happy Crafting everyone!

I need your help!




Good evening/morning everybody - well those who are reading this 😉

As stated in the title of this post, I really need some help at the moment.  I am seriously close to two personal Stampin' Up! targets, and desperately need to increase my sales to achieve them, if possible before the end of September.

With this in mind, I am hoping to sell lots of the above class kit as a 'to go' kit. I will also be teaching this as a class, so if anybody in the Wirral/Merseyside area would like to attend, please let me know. One date is already full, and so I will set up another date once I have an idea of numbers of people interested.

The two layouts above, are ones that I created at our recent 4th Croydon Sizzling Retreat, and were made using the fabulous Coffee Break designer series papers, together with a selection of matching cardstock and embellishments.  You will have more than enough supplies to make six layouts at the very least!

In the kit, you will receive:-
Coffee Break designer series papers
1 full set of the Coffee Break designer series papers,
6 @ 12x12 cardstock (3 kraft, 3 white)
6 @ A4 sheets of cardstock (2 green, 2 crumb cake and 2 blue)
Selection of embellishments
Instructions (by email) for the two scrapbook pages above

The cost of the kit is £25 including postage.  

Plus - for kit buyers only, I am offering the Labeler photopolymer stamp set (great for scrapbook pages and cards) for £12 instead of the usual £15 (a huge saving of 20%)  I would be lost without this stamp set as I use it for everything and it has 101 stamps in the set! 😲

To order your kit or kit and stamps, please contact me on carole.bryson@gmail.com or call/text me on 07747 465186,

PLEASE NOTE: Orders will not be placed until they have been paid for, and I can accept bank transfer or paypal (I will send you a paypal invoice)

CARDMAKERS

I will be posting a kit and samples for a card kit after the weekend ... I'm sadly taking the Son & Heir back to Brighton Uni tomorrow for his last year :(  Where does the time go eh?!?! 

Catch you all soon - Happy Crafting!
