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!!!


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!!!

Silver Celebrations!!!

The beginning of October was an exciting time for our Paper Adventures team – Courtney joined Kristels’ team (welcome!), which meant that Kristel promoted to Silver!!!

So, it’s time for some Silver Celebrations!

Stampin’ Up! will be sending Kristel a beautiful silver necklace, but I wanted to add a bling touch of my own for the occasion!

I secretly ordered a stash of silver products – ribbon, glitter (plus heat & stick powder) and Dazzling Details, and packaged them up in this cute little ‘bag in a box’ creation.  You can find instructions to make your own here.

A crafter can never have too much sparkle!

Kristel loves penguins – and this happy little man totally fit the silver & black colour theme!

Woo hoo for you Kristel – so excited that you’ve promoted to Silver.

Can’t wait to see where Stampin’ Up! takes you next!!!

CASEing the Catty #96 Big Shot


Thanks for joining me as the last stop on the CASEing the Catty hop featuring favourite Big Shot products / projects from the Holiday Catalogue.

If you didn’t start the beginning, keep hopping til you get back to where you started and make sure you see all the amazing creations.

Did you love what Judy created???  She’s got style!


I love all things Big Shot, so choosing a favourite was a tough task.

As I flicked through the catalogue, I kept coming back to the samples featuring the Starlight thinlits.

This is definitely one of my favourite bundles.

I almost chose the sample in the top photo above as my inspiration, but in the end I was drawn to the front cover….

Don’t forget about the eye-catching samples on the front of the catalogue!

In the end, I created 4 CASEd versions of the inspiration card.

I started by changing the colours to one of my current favourite Christmas combinations – Pool Party & Silver.

{I’m a sucker for ‘modern’ or non-traditional Christmas colours}

Then I created a second version by changing the orientation of the card to portrait.

I was so happy with the Pool Party, I wanted to go a bit further a field with my Christmas colours and try Sweet Sugarplum & Silver!

This time I changed the colours, star feature & sentiment.

And then I also created a portrait version.

Four cards – all different, all special and all from the one inspiration point (and all in a short space of time!).

I can’t stress how easy the catalogue makes it to create beautiful cards.

They can be direct copies, have subtle changes or be your starting inspiration point for a whole world of options!

If you still don’t have a copy of the Holiday Catalogue and would like one (Australian residents), then please leave me a comment and I’ll get one in your hands!

As always, I’ve had so much fun creating these cards as part of the CASEing the Catty design team.

CASEing the Catty #92 Everyday Occasions


Welcome to another CASEing the Catty Sunday blog hop.

Today it’s all about the Everyday Occasions section of the catalogue (pages 66-91).  This section contains many of my catalogue favourites, so I’m excited to see what the crew has come up with.

I’ve used the card & bag designs on page 73 as my inspiration to create a trio of wedding cards.

I love a classic & elegant wedding card.  And nothing says wedding to me more than metallics.

The bag on the left of the inspiration picture was the starting point of my card designs.  The copper through the DSP and the textured background lead to this creation…

Did you spot the *sneak peak* items from the Holiday Catalogue?  Embossed DSP (Fancy Frost) and Copper Foil!!!

Next up was the card on the right, to create this silver stunner…

Once again I’ve used the *sneak peak* Fancy Frost Speciality DSP.  The texture is amazing – you’ll easily fall in love with this DSP when you see it in person!

I’m not sure if all the Olympics I’ve been watching has infiltrated by crafting sub-consious, but I had a desire to make just one more card – in gold!

I carried through all the elements from the previous cards – metallic foil, Sunshine Wishes heart, Wedding Wishes label – and that beautiful Fancy Frost DSP.

Plus, one more *sneak peak* – we’re getting gold baker’s twine. It’s so thin & delicate and just beautiful to tie.  It comes in a pack with Cherry Cobbler & Garden Green which makes it perfect for all your Christmas projects – and more!
