Social Stamping | Snailed It

On Sunday I shared a sneak peek of one of the cards we made for Social Stamping (see that post here). I’ve been getting around to blogging these cards all week but between work, kids and my new Stampin’ Up! supplies arriving, it just hasn’t happened – until now! I’m at the hairdressers and what better way to pass the time while the colour sets than by blogging some cute cards.

Just like the other card, there were lots of colour options to choose from in this Snailed It set of cards. This is one of my favourite bundles (Snailed It stamp set and Snail Dies) from the Jan-June 2021 Mini Catalogue. Unfortunately it hasn’t carried over into the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue, so if it’s on your wish list, then you’ll want to make sure you add it to an order some time in the next month. It officially retires at the end of June, but the availability of products isn’t guaranteed after the official retirement list is released (expect that early – mid June).

The basic stamping and layouts were the same using the envelope from the Kangaroo & Company stamp set (doesn’t that coordinate well!) but stampers got to choose between –

POOL PARTY

SOFT SUCCULENT

SO SAFFRON

BLUSHING BRIDE

The label dies on the cards are from the Stitched Rectangle Dies and the Hippo & Friends Dies. The ‘happy mail’ sentiment is punched out using the Postage Stamp Punch.

Do you have a favourite colour snail from the set? I can’t decide between Blushing Bride and Soft Succulent. At Social Stamping, So Saffron was the most popular choice!

If you’d like to try stamping out, meet new crafters and enjoy a cup of coffee, we’d love to have you join us on Monday.

RSVP isn’t essential, but let me know if you plan to be there and I’ll make sure to put a kit aside for your arrival.

Blog post done – now it’s time for the shampoo and head massage part of my appointment. Without a doubt, my favourite part of getting my hair cut!!!

Class Schedule – Feb, March & April 2017

Can you believe it’s February already???  I’m not sure where January went – we were too busy having fun to notice!

But, it’s back to reality now with school back in full swing and our routine most of the way to being under control.


You’ve been asking about classes for 2017 – here’s the details!

This year I am running 3 classes each month.

All classes will be held in my cozy little craft cottage

{well, the kitchen table in my house but we’ll pretend we’re in an awesome craft cottage!}

There are 2 types of classes…

  • FRIDAY BIRTHDAY CLASS – 9.30am
    • In this class you will make cards that are fun & creative
    • It’s perfect for all levels of card making and an awesome way to build up your birthday card supplies.
    • The cost for this class is $15 and it will take us about 2 hours.
  • TUESDAY SKILL BUILDER – 9.30am & 1pm (repeated session)
    • In this card you will learn techniques, folds & ways to use products
    • The class will usually contain 1 ‘fancy’ card or project and 2 standard cards
    • This class is perfect for crafters with an interest in card making as a hobby to build up your skills
    • The cost for this class is $20 and it will take us about 2.5 hours

Classes are limited to 4 participants per session – due to the size of the cottage!

If you see a class or 2 you’re interested in please email me to reserve your place & I’ll be in touch with payment details.  Your seat in the class is only confirmed when I receive payment.

If the dates I’ve set for classes don’t suit you, please feel free to contact me to suggest a weekend class or in-home workshop.
