Stylish Silver Celebrations

It’s time to celebrate again for our Stampin’ Up! team – Paper Adventures!

Joanne has worked extremely hard at her business over the past 6 months and earned herself a promotion to Silver!!!

{CONGRATULATIONS JOANNE!}


I try to recognise and reward my team as much as possible – it’s the fun part of being in a team!

My colour combination was silver (of course) and one of my favourite colours – Sweet Sugarplum with a ‘celebrate you’ theme.

So pretty!!!

A special occasion calls for special effort – so I embellished the inside too!

And of course, a gift with the same theme…


If you think being a part of a Stampin’ Up! team would be fun for you, then we’ve always got our arms open for more Australians! (Sorry everyone else, Stampin’ Up! have strict rules on borders).

Joining our Paper Adventures team is easy & a fabulous deal – especially at the moment!

Joining Stampin’ Up! is just $169.

Until the end of March 2017, this cost gets you a full customisable (ie, you choose everything that goes into it) kit with $235 of products in it, a business supply kit (in case you want this – if you don’t, I’ll have it!) AND {TWO} extra stamp sets (of any value!).

Did I mention free postage on all of that?

*** After 31st March 2017, the starter kit will still be available but the 2 extra stamp sets won’t be included.


Once you’ve joined, the journey is up to you.  You can buy, sell and join in the fun for as long as it suits you & your quarterly minimums are $455 (or more).  Once it stops being fun, you simply stop being an active demonstrator.

If you want more info, please email me.

If you’re excited to join – follow this link to join the fun!

An example of a great value starter kit…

This is just an idea – you can put whatever you like in your kit to the value of $235 & 2 extra stamp sets!

It’s so exciting!!!  If you’re not sure about joining, my advice is to just do it!  And then take it from there!

I’d love to be writing more of these posts and celebrating more amazing people!!!

Party Girl Invites v2 – GDP#43

What a well-timed challenge from the Global Design Project team!


The Littlest Miss turns 3 this month, so it was time to make invites {again}.

I wanted to continue on with the theme I started last year with a black silhouette of a little miss and a burst of colour.

Last year it was balloons…

This year the party is at the local fun centre, so it’s all about the ball pit!

How fun are those party colours???  They make a great colour palette for baby wipe stamping.

Conveniently, each invited guest has a different initial.  So I went with striking simplicity when addressing their invites – courtesy of the Large Letters Framelits.

I had everything crossed that Stampin’ Up! would add them to the range in 2016 – and they came through for me!!!  I’m looking forward to getting lots more use out of them!

My Birthday Weekend!

#imbringingbirthdaysback

It looks like Shannon West will have spent most of her day yesterday opening birthday cards!!!

I’m looking forward to the same fun tomorrow!!!

Have a look through your Facebook list, in you diary or ask around – and see if you can make a goal to send some birthday cards over the next few months. Let me tell you – there’s nothing like the excitement of heading to the letterbox & discovering happy mail rather than bills!

And that’s what the #imbringingbirthdaysback movement is all about!  Kelly x

Decorative Corner Fold Card

#imbringingbirthdaysback

Today is Kristel’s birthday.  Happy birthday!!!

Kristel was the first member of my team and is a wonderful companion to share my journey with.

Since we’re bringing birthdays back, it seems fitting that the card should be fun, vibrant and a little fancy.

This wonderful Decorative Corner Fold card was designed by Debbie Henderson of Debbie’s Designs.  We made the Botanicals version during last month’s Tuesday class after Joy found it online and thought it looked pretty special.  She’s right – it’s fabulous!

The reasons for it’s fabulousness are simple – it’s easy to make but looks fancy and can be prettied up in any way you like.


For Kristel’s card, I’ve gone with Party My Way DSP, Balloon Celebration balloons and Endless Birthday Wishes sentiments.

I took lots of photos of this one to show off all the features.

You can follow Debbie’s measurements and directions exactly (instructions here, video here), or you can follow my slightly adapted measurements to fit with Australian cardstock.  You will get two Decorative Corner Cards from one piece of A4 cardstock.

Instructions:

  • Cut your cardstock in half (so you have 8-1/4″ x 5-7/8″)
  • Score across the long edge at 2″, 4″, 6″ & 8″
  • Place a strip of Tape & Tear along the 1/4″ edge left by the scoring
  • Adhere this to make your ‘box’
  • To make the front panel, punch 2 x 1-1/4″ circles. Fold in half & with the folds meeting, place adhesive on the back & adhere to the card front.  Place adhesive on the front & add your decorative panel (the picture above or Debbie’s video will help if this doesn’t make sense!).

Enjoy decorating your card with whatever stamps & DSP fit your theme.  Thanks to Debbie for her generous sharing of her instructions & measurements.  Kelly x
