VIDEO: Occasions Catalogue Sneak Peak - Tag Topper Punches

Just 1 day to go before the Occasions Catalogue is released on 28th January.

Here is another wonderful product sneak peak from the Occasions Catalogue.

These are the Scalloped Tag Topper and Angled Tag Topper Punches by Stampin' Up!

Check out this YouTube clip from Stampin' Up!

Learn how to make tags of any length with just one punch. Most tag punches punch out the entire tag, so you're limited to one size. Now there's a tool that punches out just the top of a tag so you can choose how long you want your tag to be. It also punches out the hole for a tassel or thread so you don't have to do it separately. It's available in two top designs: scalloped and angled.

Happy Stamping,

Sale-A-Bration 2014 Sneak Peak - You're Lovely Stamp Set

The Sale-A-Bration 2014 Catalogue starts tomorrow.  For every $90 AUD spent from the current Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue, Occasions Catalogue or the Annual Idea Book & Catalogue, you can choose 1 of 13 free products from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.

Here's a sneak peak of the Card front I made for the Sale-A-Bration Card Swap the Crazy Crafters Team is running.  The stamp is from the You're Lovely stamp set and the Designer Series Paper is from Sweet Sorbet DSP, which coordinates with Basic Black, Pool Party, Summer Starfruit & Pistachio Pudding.

The I Think You're Lovely stamp co-ordinates with the Deco Labels Collection Framelits (130102).  I stamped the image twice and punched out the centre with a circle punch before raising the words & the Black Deco Collection Label with dimensionals to add dimension to the card design.  The little coloured Banners were punched using the Banner Punch, which is another free Sale-A-Bration item you're just going to love and NEED to get.

Crazy Crafters January Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for the Crazy Crafters Black & White Blog Hop. We hope you enjoy our virtual hop where you will learn great techniques for your paper crafting projects.

You should have just left stop number 2 on the Crazy Crafters Hop - Kylie Bertucci at Crafty Kylie.  If so, you are in the right spot. If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

My project for the hop is The Postage Stamp Collection made with the Stampin' Up! Postage Collection (Hostess) and Clearly for You (retired) stamp sets.  The Card Design features 16 postage punchies with little bordered images stamped in Basic Black.  The size of the Card is 6" x 6" and includes 2 layers of Whisper White cardstock.

To add dimension to the Card Design, I have raised every 2nd postage stamp with Dimensionals.

Don't forget to decorate the inside of your card when dark coloured cardstock is used as the card base.  I have added a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square of whisper white cardstock and a little strip of black patterned paper from the Neutrals Colour Collection Designer Series Paper Stack and a strip of Pinking Hearts Border Punch (retired). 

To co-ordinate with the card, I have made a 6" x 6" envelope out of the same DSP using the Envelope Punch Board. This was the first time I made an envelope out of the Envelope Punch Board and it was so easy to do.  Finish the envelope with a mailing label in Whisper White with a Basic Black matt and include a couple of little stamped images for a nice touch. 

Stampin' Up! Supplies (click on the products to view them in my 24/7 Online Store):
Stamps : Postage Collection (hostess)(wood-mount) (clear-mount)
