All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team

Hello from New Zealand – It’s your friendly Kiwi here!

All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team

It’s great to be hopping with the All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team – we are ready to help you create beautiful handmade projects featuring Stampin’ Up! products. It’s time for a new Tutorial Bundle and Blog Hop for you.

All Star Tutorial Bundle

Our Design team has created a bundle of 12 tutorials using Stampin’ Up! products.
This month the bundle contains tutorials for projects using products from the Annual and Holiday Catalogues – and some from the soon-to-be-released Mini Catalogue which goes live in January. Here’s a Sneak Peek of what you will receive in the bundle.

December Bundle Sneak Peek

December 2019 Tut Bundle Sneak Peek

The Tutorial Bundles are based on currently available supplies from Stampin’ Up! and will have both metric and imperial (inches) measurements. So no matter where you live in the world, you can purchase these tutorials and use them to create great projects!
The Tutorial Bundle is $NZ21 – or place an order over $NZ50 this month with me to receive this month’s tutorial for free. See the details at the end of the post to find out how you can get this exclusive bundle of tutorials.

All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team Blog Hop

Remember, the projects in the Blog Hop are not the same projects as in our tutorial – the projects in the Tutorial Bundle are exclusive and not shown anywhere else. Here’s a better sneak peek of the project I’ve done for the Tutorial Bundle.

Sneak Peek for December Bundle - CreativeJax

While the project being shared today and my project in the Tutorial Bundle are both made using the same technique –  remember they are different projects.

Blog Hop Project

Swapping is a real highlight at Stampin’ Up! events. I made and shared 3 different swap projects at our recent OnStage Live Event in Dortmund. This is one of my designs – for an organised – 25 cards.

Done and ready to swap.

Swaps are done

It can get a bit crazy – LOTS of people – but it is a fun way to meet new people and a great way to get inspiration from others via their swaps.

Here’s some pictures of swapping in action in Dortmund.

     Swaps in Dortmund       

Roy attended OnStage Live with me in Dortmund and was helpful – and patient! He mostly observed but once, after I had got sidetracked talking to the people I was swapping with (surprise – surprise!), I turned back to find Roy had kept on swapping!

Deck the Halls! Stampin’ Creative November Blog Hop

Deck the Halls with a colourful Christmas Luminary.

Welcome to November’s Stampin’ Creative Global Blog Hop. 

Our Design Team is made up of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from throughout the world and we love blogging together each month to share new Creative projects with you all. You’re currently with Jackie Noble – aka CreativeJax – in Porirua, New Zealand.

This month’s theme is Deck the Halls

And this week that is just what I’ve been doing here at Home!

Each year I create some new Christmas Decorations from current Stampin’ Up! products, that I then keep and add to my collection to bring out next year.

I’ve already made several new Home Decor items and today I’m sharing a cute wee Christmas Luminary

Deck the Halls Project

Mini Curvy Keepsakes Christmas Luminary

I must admit it looks a little underwhelming during the day without its battery-operated tealight candle going.

But when I turn that on – I just love how it shines!

Mini Curvy Keepsakes Christmas Luminary

Project Details

(Note: see the Product List below for images & links to more information about the items)

Paper/card: Mercury Glass Designer Acetate

Stamp sets: None!

Ink: None!

Tools: Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies

Non-Stampin’ Up! product: Battery-operated tea light candle – this one was multi-coloured but the luminary looks fabulous with any Tea-light candle. It MUST be a BATTERY one though – DON’T put a real candle inside!

This Luminary is made from just one 6×6″ square of the Mercury Glass Designer Acetate. The Mini Curvy Keepsake dies cuts one piece to create this gorgeous wee “gift box”.  You can see how it works in the Stampin’ Up! video below.

More Project Images – in fact videos!

Here’s a little video of the luminary as the colours of the tea light inside change. ( There is no sound! )

 

 

Now it’s time to hop on over to the UK to see what Elmear has created!

And then keep on hopping to see what projects the other members of the Design Team have shared today!

Until next time

Christmastime is Here – Special Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop

Welcome to a special Stampin’ Creative Global Blog Hop – one dedicated to the Christmastime is Here Suite

Christmastime is Here

Our Design Team is made up of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from throughout the world and we love blogging together each month to share new Creative projects with you all. This month some of the team is hoping together to feature the Christmastime is Here Suite. You’re currently with Jackie Noble – aka CreativeJax – in Porirua, New Zealand.

Before I share my project – I wanted to share a couple of pictures taken only a few days ago at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Live event in Dortmund, Germany.

It was fabulous to meet up some of the Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop Design Team – many of these for the first time!

Stampin Creative Design Team in Dortmund

We took this first photo on Friday in the photo booth area – but we weren’t all in it so we arranged to redo on Saturday – and we conscripted another member!

Stampin Creative Design Team in Dortmund

What an amazing group of women! I’m very blessed to be part of the team.

 

My Project today is also related to OnStage.

I left a gift in New Zealand to be given to Sally Wheoki during OnStage Local in Auckland.  Sally is one of my fabulous downlines and had been selected to present at the OnStage Local. I was sad not to be there with her to support and celebrate her presenting – and to celebrate her magnificent results over the last year. In New Zealand, Sally placed 3rd in Recruiting, 6th in Leadership and 6th Overall! I was so proud of her achievements and the hard work she has put into growing her business. 

Sally Auckland

My gift to her was the beautiful Limited Edition bracelet from the Christmastime is Here Suite.

Charming Rose Bracelet

And I made a gift bag for her gift.

 Project

Christmastime is Here

 

Project Details

 (Note: see the Product List below for images & links to more information about the items)

Bag: Christmastime is Here Speciality DSP

Paper/card: Gold Foil Sheets

Tools: Detailed Trio Punch (to make openings for ribbon), Rose Dies (for gold Label & gold lattice), Paper Snips (for fussy cutting rose)

Accessories: Gold ¼” Ribbon, Gold Glitter Enamel Dots

 

More Project Images

From my 12×12 sheet of DSP I made 2 gift bags – just changing which side of the DSP is showing more.
Christmastime is Here

These gift bags are a perfect size for the Charming Rose Bracelet

Christmastime is Here

The box that the Bracelet comes in has the same patterns as this particular DSP sheet.

Christmastime is Here

 

Anyone who purchases the bracelet will receive theirs in a similar gift bag.

 

Now it’s time to keep on hopping to see what projects the other members of the Design Team have shared today

Pretty Cards and Paper November Blog Hop – Let it Snow

  1. Pretty

Welcome to this month’s Pretty Cards & Paper International Blog Hop. 

Our Design Team is made up of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from throughout the world – one from each of the countries/markets that Stampin’ Up! has a presence in. 

Each month we will be featuring a different card or designer series paper in our projects. We’re featuring the another specialty DSP in November – the Let it Snow DSP. The specialty part of this paper is that there is glimmer on several of the patterns.

Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper                         150393

Let it Snow DSP

Here’s all the important info: 

Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper 150393  

The weather outside may be frightful but crafting is so delightful when you use Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper. This versatile designer paper features one side with bright winter images with a touch of glimmer; the other side has basic patterns for year-round use.

* 12 sheets of designer paper: 2 each of 6 double-sided designs
* 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm)
* Acid free
* Lignin free

Product colours:  Basic Black, Blueberry Bushel, Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Real Red, Shaded Spruce, Whisper White

Let It Snow Christmas Card

So – we don’t have snow at this time of the year in New Zealand – but that doesn’t mean this paper is not relevant to us in the South Pacific! Many of the reverse sides of the paper have non-snowy patterns! I’ve chosen a stripe for my card today.

Let It Snow Christmas Card

  • Coastal card base
  • Real Red Glimmer Paper strips on each side of the card front
  • Striped pattern from Let It Snow Specialty DSP (8.5cm x 14.8 cm) matted onto Coastal Cabana (8.8cm x 14.8cm)
  • Sentiment stamped in Real Red Ink onto Whisper White (8cm x 4cm)
  • Real Red 1/8″ Curly Ribbon tied around matted DSP
  • Matted DSP attached to card front with dimensionals

Let It Snow Christmas Card - inside

  • On the inside of the card I stamped second sentiment in Real RedLet it Snow Closeup
  • Add some Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels for touch of bling!

 

 

Now hop of through and see what projects the other talented members of the Pretty Cards & Papers Design Crew have created with this month’s Designer Series Papers.

Christmastime is Here. Tutorial Bundle Design Team Blog Hop

All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team

Hello from New Zealand – It’s your friendly Kiwi here!

All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team

It’s great to be hopping with the All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team – we are ready to help you create beautiful handmade projects featuring Stampin’ Up! products. It’s time for a new Tutorial Bundle and Blog Hop for you.

All Star Tutorial Bundle

Our Design team has created a bundle of 12 tutorials using Stampin’ Up! products.
This month the bundle contains tutorials for projects using products from the Annual and Holiday Catalogues. Here’s a Sneak Peek of what you will receive in the bundle.

October Bundle Sneak Peek

November Tutorial Bundle Sneak Peeks

The Tutorial Bundles are based on currently available supplies from Stampin’ Up! and will have both metric and imperial (inches) measurements. So no matter where you live in the world, you can purchase these tutorials and use them to create great projects!
The Tutorial Bundle is $NZ21 – or place an order over $NZ50 this month with me to receive this month’s tutorial for free. See the details at the end of the post to find out how you can get this exclusive bundle of tutorials.

All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team Blog Hop

Remember, the projects in the Blog Hop are not the same projects as in our tutorial – the projects in the Tutorial Bundle are exclusive and not shown anywhere else. Here’s a better sneak peek of the project I’ve done for the Tutorial Bundle.

November Tutorial Bundle Sneak Peek

While the project being shared today and my project in the Tutorial Bundle are both made using the newly released Christmastime is Here Suite of Products –  remember they are different projects.

 

Blog Hop Project

Christmastime is Here Tutorial Bundle Blog Hop

Project Details

(Note: see the Product List below for images & links to more information about the items)

Paper/card: Thick Whisper White (card base), Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper

Stamp sets: Christmastime Rose

Ink: Mossy Meadow, Cherry Cobbler

Tools:  Rose Dies (to cut rose image from DSP), Heat Tool

Accessories:  Gold ¼” Ribbon, Gold Glitter Enamel Dots

 

More Project Photos

 

The layout of this card shows off both sides of the Designer Series Paper.

So often both sides of a piece of DSP are gorgeous and it seems wrong to hide one side by sticking it down on a full card front. Attendees at my Christmas Cards Class this week have enjoyed making this card and loved being able to see both sides of this stunning DSP. It is a layout that you can use in a huge variety of cards – not just Christmas.

 

 

Christmastime is Here

 

To create the card, I wrapped the Gold Ribbon around the top of the DSP with Tear & Tape, and then used another strip of Tear & Tape to stick the DSP to the Whisper White that forms the top part of the card front. 

 

I then stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment onto the card front in Mossy Meadow before attaching the large rose image using dimensionals. The rose image was cut from the Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper using the Roses Dies. I love that this die cuts the image on the DSP as well as the stamped rose image – thank you Stampin’ Up!

Christmastime is here

 

The card was finished off with some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots. I’ll definitely be adding more of these to my next order!

Christmastime is Here

I used products from the 2019 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. View it all at my ONLINE STORE. If you live in New Zealand and would like a copy of either the Annual or the Holiday catalogue – please message me.

Now, it’s time to enjoy the other fabulous creations by the All Star Design Team.

Christmastime Festive Treats! Stampin’ Creative November Blog Hop

Welcome to October’s Stampin’ Creative Global Blog Hop. 

Our Design Team is made up of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from throughout the world and we love blogging together each month to share new Creative projects with you all. You’re currently with Jackie Noble – aka CreativeJax – in Porirua, New Zealand.

This month’s theme is Festive Treats.

Maybe I should have made a Halloween treat as it is Halloween today – but no –  I’ve got a festive Christmas treat bag/box.

It is in Christmas colours – so definitely “Festive” – but it could be used for many different occasions. 

 Project

Christmastime is Here Festive Treat Bag

 

Project Details

 (Note: see the Product List below for images & links to more information about the items)

Base: Kraft Pillow Box (folded closed at the bottom but not the top)

Paper/card: Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper, Gold Foil Sheets

Stamp sets: Delightful Day

Ink: Versamark Pad, Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker (from Regals set)

Tools: Pretty Label Punch (to make handle opening), Rose Dies (for Whisper White Label & gold lattice), Heat Tool

Accessories: Gold Embossing Powder, Gold ¼” Ribbon, Gold Glitter Enamel Dots

 

Helpful Hint:

When adhering the gold foil sheet to the bottom of the Pillow Box, place it so the bottom edge is at the level of the points of the box. This will allow the box to stand.

More Project Images

Christmastime is Here Pillow Box Treat Bag

The view from below showing how the gold foil is wrapped around the bottom of the pillow box (which is folded closed) and forms an edge so that the box/bag can stand.

Oh, I love gold foil, so I had to take another picture for you!

 

 

Now it’s time to hop on over to the UK to see what Kim has created!

Night Before Christmas Sampler – Maui Achievers’ Blog Hop

Maui Blog Hop Header
Hello and Welcome to the October Maui Trip Achievers’ Blog Hop.

Those hopping today are all Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world who met the requirements to earn the amazing 2020 Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip to Maui. While every demo can work towards and potentially earn the trip, only a limited number of demos reach the level required to earn the trip. 

As Achieving Demonstrators, we hop together once a month to show you ideas and design using “current” Stampin’ Up! products – and as October is the start of our Stampin’ Up! year – this is our first hop together as the Maui Trip Achievers – so get ready to be inspired!

 

Project – Night Before Christmas Sampler

Christmas Sampler

This Christmas sampler was one of my Make’n’Takes at a Paper Crafting Expo over the weekend.

It was such fun designing it and I loved seeing others creating it too!

The cards in the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Pack are just gorgeous and with the included coordinating stickers, make this a straightforward project to complete. 

Night Before Christmas Memories & More

This Memories & More Card pack is great as you get six each of the designs – perfect to make a range of matching projects – or lots of the same project. Just think – you could make several of these Christmas Samplers as gifts!

Here’s a close-up

Christmas Sampler

 

The Sleigh is cut from Black Foil using a die from the Jolly Season Dies.

Both the Memories & More Card Pack and the Jolly Season dies are part of the Night Before Christmas Product Suite. Check out all the products in the suite HERE

Each month we will be featuring a different card or designer series paper in our projects. We’re featuring the gorgeous Brightly Gleaming DSP in October and I’m so pleased we are – Copper is my fav metallic – and that’s what is gleaming on this specialty paper

  • Inside self colouring (or maybe faux watercolouring) on the bauble. Here I stamped using a Classic Ink Pad and then used my blender pen directly on the stamped image to create a watercoloured look.

  • The DSP wraps around from the front to the inside, folds back on itself to form the pocket (thanks to Lisa LoPresti Curcio for the inspiration for the fold)
  • I did this card at my Technique Classes this month. There were several DSP pattern options. The card could be put together in Portrait or Landscape and with various layout options.

Oct-19-tutorial-bundle-sneeak-peek

While the project being shared today and my Tutorial Project both share some things in common – same card base colour and same DSP –  they are different projects

 

Blog Hop Project

 

Gorgeous Grape Birthday Card

Project Details

Card: Gorgeous Grape card base,  Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper, Sparkle Glimmer Paper,  Whisper White

Stamp sets: I Say Hello

Ink: Gorgeous Grape

Blends: Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Lovely Lipstick

Accessories: Gorgeous Grape 1/4″ Mini Striped Ribbon, Shimmery Crystal Effects, Ice Stampin’ Glitter

More Project Photos

 

The piece of ribbon has been “deconstructed” and the long threads used to create a crinkly bow.

The sentiment was stamped in Gorgeous Grape onto Whisper White and popped onto a piece of Sparkle Glimmer Paper.

It’s hard to capture in pictures – but the flowers on the card front really sparkle!

I put dots of shimmery Crystal Effects onto the little buds and then sprinkled the Ice Stampin’ Glitter on top.

Gorgeous Grape Feels Like Frost Birthday Card

Once the Shimmery Crystal Effects is dry – those little pieces of Ice Glitter are going nowhere.

They catch the light and great lots of sparkle – they also look really cool in a close-up!

The inside of the card has a strip of DSP beside the Whisper White

Nature’s Beauty for Mental Health Awareness Week New Zealand

Hello from a friendly crafty Kiwi!

Today is the last day of Mental Health Awareness Week in New Zealand.

During the last week, I have been sharing projects I’ve made using the gorgeous Nature’s Beauty Stamp Set on my Facebook Page. (CreativeJax)

The Nature’s Beauty Stamp set is part of Stampin’ Up!’s Making a Difference Programme – where Stampin’ Up! is donating some of the proceeds from this stamp set to Mental Health Organisations in the area sold.

Here in New Zealand, $4.50 will be donated to the Mental Health Foundation of NZ for every set sold! 

Details of Nature’s Beauty Stamp Set

Help us make a difference in the lives of those you care about with your purchase of this stamp set. A portion of every sale goes toward mental health organisations in your area.

Our cling stamp sets
* Are premium rubber stamps.
* Have deeply etched images so you get a superior stamped impression each time.
