Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop


Thank you for joining us this week for the Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop! You are either starting here or have come from the amazing Allison Okamitsu's blog. This week we are highlighting our favourite season. I LOVE Spring here in Melbourne, Australia. We get pretty hot summers and spring is that wonderful time when the flowers are blooming and it hasn't got too hot yet. It is a wonderful time.

I have a hashtag that you may have heard of - #loveitchopit. I have used this hashtag to help those that have a tendency to hoard the stunning Stampin' Up!® designer series paper. Do you think your paper is too precious to cut? Do you let it stack up and retire?? It is time to take DRASTIC MEASURES and Love it Chop it!!

When I get my 12 x 12" Designer Series Paper I get that guillotine out and I chop that baby up because I love my paper and want others to see it and appreciate it too. And you know what? When I chop it - I can buy MORE! I have given my self permission. So love your paper - chop your paper....

You can get 72 cards from just ONE PACK of 12" x 12" paper. What do 72 cards look like??
Like THIS!!

This is BRAND new paper that is coming up in our Annual Catalogue on the 1st June 2017.



These are my customer cards for those that place an order with me here in Australia and use the host code UBTS9YJ6. My customers love getting their handmade card with a gift each month.


The Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper comes with a Cardstock Pack - I used two of these packs to make the 72 cards. So all you need is one pack of Designer Series Paper - 2 packs of the Cardstock packs - a sentiment and you have 72 cards coming your way!!

Here in Australia that works out to 65c per card!! Woo hoo! Winning!

The paper is cut the paper at 10cm x 14.4cm. In imperial measurements that would be 4" x 5.25" for your card front. Both measurements will get you 72 card fronts. #loveitchopit.

Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek Crazy Crafters Blog Hop

My wonderful team - the Crazy Crafters and I are hopping together to give you some sneak peeks of some of the new catalogue items!! We LOVE the new catalogue that starts 1st June 2017. As a demonstrator we get to have a play with new items before everyone else - just one of the many perks we receive. If you can't wait till June and want to get your hands on the new good and you live in Australia - you can join with anyone of us in the blog hop today!

Today I have decided to highlight the a stunning new card kit called Soft Sayings. If you are new to Stampin' Up!® or to card making this is PERFECT. Also many of us are short of time but want to give our friends and family something special - this would be a wonderful kit if you are short of time or even a gift as well.

An exciting feature that has never happened with the Stampin' Up!® kits before is that there is a refill option available. This means you can pay a little less and just get the products you need to make the 20 cards.

Check out the stunning cards you can make with this kit, there are a variety of sentiments so you don't have to use the ones that I have.



Here are ten of them up close - you get two of each of these in the kit. They really are so stunning. I will be getting so many refills!



Thank you so much for joining us today!!

Make sure you don't miss one of the blogs as you hop around today. Check the list below to see who is up next!

Want to be part of a Random Act of Kindness?

There are some challenges that many of us face from day to day in our lives - it can be tiring, stressful and at times really tough. Want to use your creativity to be part of something that can bring love and kindness to someones life?? To give them a spark in their day that helps to connect with others?? YOU CAN be part of something TRUELY amazing.

The Random Acts of Kindness group is a group of fellow craft lovers that spread love to one another every month. The best part is - you choose how much love you want to spread and you choose who you would like to give that love to. It is completely RANDOM and so much fun. We use only current Stampin' Up!® Products in our cards so that not only can we give someone love and joy - but we can inspire creativity too. If we really love a card - we can replicate it and get our hands on the current product.

Today we hit over 600 members in the group!! WOW!! Every day we are seeing pictures of cards that are being sent ALL OVER THE WORLD. The goal in this group is not to expect anything - but to GIVE. There is a wise proverb that said "there is more happiness in giving than receiving". So come and join in and learn the art of giving!

Here are just some of the cards that I have received recently - it is now such a joy and so exciting to go to the mailbox!! 

Many that I have spoken to have said that one of these special cards has shown up just at the right time when they just needed it. You will connect and make new friends all around the world. So the question is - If you aren't in the group WHY NOT?? CLICK HERE to join up right now.

Let friends, family, fellow demonstrators, customers whoever you like about the group.








Thank you so much for joining me today! I have TWO blog hops tomorrow that I am taking part in and they are both using brand new product so make sure you don't miss them. You can CLICK HERE to subscribe to get my blog by email so you don't miss a thing.
