We have an awesome group of demonstrators sharing their talents in our private Facebook group called the Global SU Share Fair. We broadcast about every other month with videos available on replay if you miss the live days. There are over about 50 demonstration videos available on replay with the next live day on 5 or 6 November. This will be Black Friday in the Northern Hemisphere but here in Australis, we will have kicked over to Saturday. Save the date!
Today we are CASEing (CASE = Copy & Share Everything) the January 2021 Share Fair Tutorial projects, creating new projects with a holiday twist. I decided to CASE Joy Nelson’s Crossover Gatefold Card that is the last in the pdf tutorial. Here is her card.
Here is my Christmas version of this fun fold card.
Stamps: – Peaceful Deer Stamp Set
Inks: – Evening Evergreen, Early Espresso, Cinamon Cider
Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring the theme Fall. I am excited to share another project with you today. Fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe are participating, so we have lots of fun projects to share with you. I hope you get loads of creative inspiration from them. You may have started here, or arrived from the talented Tracy Held’s blog. Wasn’t her project amazing? Either way, you’re in the right place!
When I saw that the theme was Fall (we call it autumn in Australia, and it is spring here at the moment) I knew I would use the Beauty of the Earth DSP. The colours in this paper are so vibrant and have strong “autumnal” overtones. I also decided that these colours would lend themselves to a Thinking of You card. This is what I came up with.
Tools: – Beautiful Trees Dies, Aquapen, Stampin Dimensionals
Embellishments: – Holiday Rhinestones
I had fun doing a multicoloured wash on the Shimmer Card before adhering the tree trunk and DSP diecut foliage on top. I hope you are inspired by my card. I’d love to know what you think! Thanks for joining us for our Blog Hop.
Click on the link below and you will be taken to Julia Quinn’s blog. I’m sure she will have something amazing to share.
Here’s a list of hoppers in case you get off the trail:
Card: – Bumble Bee, Real Red, Basic White, Pattern Party DSP
Tools: – Birthday Chick Dies, Blending Brushes, Aqua Pen, Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Bone Folder, Dimensionals
Karen led a project to create these amazing cards. These are all of our creations. Above shows them closed and below shows them open. Aren’t they incredible? Will be so hard to give them away.
Many of the supplies we used have now retired, so are no longer available, but the Timeless Tulips stamp set and coordinating Tulip punch are still available. See link for my online shop below.
We had a card swap based on the patterned cardstock we created at the previous month’s meet using the shaving cream technique. We used Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive inks.
I think we did a great job designing all of these cards. Frances used the Simply Succulents Stamp Set. Karen used the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle, the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder and the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, the Birthday Chick Dies and the Painted Texture Embossing Folder. Anne used the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder and the Double Oval punch. Vicki used the Stitched Rectangle Dies. All of these products are available in the current Annual Catalogue.
I hope you are inspired by our cards. I’d love to know what you think. We had so much fun making them. If you would like to be part of my team and join us for these meets, click on the link below.

Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring the theme Happy Birthday. I am excited to share another project with you today. Fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe are participating, so we have lots of fun projects to share with you. I hope you get loads of creative inspiration from them. You may have started here, or arrived from the talented Tracy Held’s blog. Wasn’t her project amazing? Either way, you’re in the right place!
I wanted to make a card for a friend who had a birthday this week and I know she likes bright colours. I started with the DSP. Then I decided to create a Pinwheel Tower card. One of my team led us in making these last month. I had the idea of doing the silhouette look because the DSP is bright on one side but black and white on the other. The rest of the supplies and styling just evolved as I went.
Here’s a list of hoppers in case you get off the trail:

The 2021-22 Annual Catalogue is full of awesome NEW paper crafting products. I have joined with a global group of demonstrators to offer an amazing Suite of the Month program using products from this catalogue. If you don’t yet have a copy of the catalogue, contact me and I will arrange for you to get one.
One product suite is highlighted each month. I hope these suites are on your wish lists because you will earn a FREE make and take kit when you order the designated suite. My Youtube assembly video link will be emailed to you so that you can assemble your kit at your leisure.
In addition, I am collaborating with other demonstrators who will be sharing 2 projects each using the same product suite. This month, there are 5 demonstrators, so you get 10 FREE video tutorials. Although you will only get the kit for my make ‘n takes, you will be able to make all the other projects because you have purchased the suite! Much as we would like to buy everything in the catalogue, we also have to choose which are our favourite favourites, so the demonstrators can vary from month to month.
I will need some time to prepare your kit and post it to you. When I see an order come through with the designated Suite of the Month, I’ll send off your make and take kit to you that month.
You are welcome to order any other products on the same order so that you can earn and spend host rewards host rewards but if your order is under $250 (excluding shipping) please use the host code for that month shown in the sidebar of this blog when ordering.
Here are the Suites being featured each month. The page numbers refer to the 2021-22 annual catalogue unless stated otherwise.
