PHOTOPOLYMER STAMPS
I've told you all before my love of Photopolymer- this is an Awesome new Range of products!!
Show and tell 1&2 are available to purchase NOW! 



Blendabilities

18 months a go I got the offer to join stampin up. One reason I hesitated for a millisecond was that Stampin up DIDN'T have a range photopolymer stamps (and now they do!!) AND they didn't have alcohol based markers (something that I really wanted to get into...) 
Well...
 da-da-da daaaaaaaaaa!!
 Stampin Up is releasing "Blendabilities" their NEW alcohol markers!! 
I cant tell you HOW excited I am- this is SO fantastic!!
Unlike watercolouring (which is AWESOME, of course) you can achieve a STRONG colour, while still blending the colours seamlessly! it makes achieving skin tones, so so easy!! YAY!
I used pics from Erin Burton click on the blendabilities pic to see her sample!
 Erin Burton shows a fantastic example of using them on her blog!

here are the colour ranges that will be available from July.
I want EVERYONE to enjoy this Fabulous colour range- and to make sure that this is achievable Im starting Blendabilities club- a way to get ALL the stamps ink you need to have fun with this amazing new product.
within 3 months YOU can have ALL of these wonderful markers and Ink pad, PLUS have an awesome $50 to spend on how ever you like in one of the months! 
 We can only start purchasing these brilliant products from July, but I already have expressions of interest  from people that are excited as much as I am!
go to the "Blendabilities club" at the top of the page for more info!

Classes- see what we are making this month!




I just thought I would share with you my techniques class this week- the theme was "card in a box" very popular on the web at the moment!!
 I chose to do the version which only uses a 1/2 A4 piece of cardstock. We had a few young men in our class, so I had to choose the stamp sets wisely.... I chose the "back yard basics" stamp set and bigshot dies (it had birds and bees in it as well!) No flowers for the boys thank you very much!! (We had 2 "killer bee boxes" from them- don't you think they did a great job??) plus "flower shop" stamp set ,and "create a cupcake" stamp sets with coordinating punches.  It was a fun class! Here's some of the samples we made-










I've also made samples for my online class. I filmed the tutorial for my first in a series of 3 watercolouring tutorials this week. I hope the ladies enjoy the class! 
My online class receives everything needed to make these 3 cards in the kit they will recieve this month, for only 5$ plus postage!  (excluding stamps.) Plus they recieve a video tutorial of how to make these cards. Interested in joining? Go to the above online class tab for more info!




I've ALSO been stuffing envelopes (got another 75 done this week) for a card kit mail out I did early last month. I had 500 sign up!! Massive massive job. (Especially when you work full time as well! Lol ) I've made a few cards for orders and myself As well ! Busy busy week!! I hope you have a good one too! 
Don't forget to check out the weekly deals! 
 Thanks for the blog visit!

Crazy crafters Blog hop


FRAMELITS

Hello everyone!!! 
Thankyou so much for coming by and checking out our Blog hop- I'm sure you have enjoyed seeing everyones so far today- you  might have come from the very talented Teena Mahers blog- "stamping with Teena"  If not- be sure to check them all out- I'm sure you will get lots and lots of ideas for your next paper crafting project!!

FRAMELITS
What a fantastic Theme we have today!! Next to cardstock, ink and stamps, my big shot and framelits are my most valued items in my paper crafting tools- and some of the most used as well!

Because I use Framelits SO much, I wanted to make something out of the ordinary for today's blog hop. 
I'm a fan of instagram, and thought I would make an instagram camera with an opening lens
I searched the "far and wide web"  and found inspiration from Melanie Schulenberg but couldn't find a camera that ONLY used framelits!
so I created my own!! (Tutorial soon to come!)

 Can you spot the little lever that opens the cameras iris?



I can tell you how challenging this was!!! in Melanies tutorial, she used glue dots to attach the lens shutters, but I found it didn't give enough movement, so used mini brads that I flattened in the big shot once attached. here is a shot of the framelits I used and the pieces I made...
As you can see I used a variety of circle framelits, PLUS I used a couple from "chalk talk" 
and then in "dressing" my card, to carry on with the theme, I used the new "star burst" framelits- and, as Stampin Up does best, I used the coordinating "starburst sayings" stamp set
I hope you have enjoyed my contribution to today's blog hop!If you haven't already, please check out everyones blog hop posts- I'm sure you will find heaps of inspiration in them!!

Photopolymer is HERE!

I cant tell you how excited I was this morning when I saw the news my upline had revealed to us on facebook- Photopolymer is HERE! I know this sounds like a little thing to most people, but before Stampin up, I sort of liked photopolymer. I mean, I didn't like how it cracked, degraded, stained and was useless after a few uses... but i LOVED how you could see through it. i REALLY loved how you could see through it. I find it hard to line things up... so the see through factor appealed to me.... when Stampin up came into my life i thought the clear blocks and stamps that went with them were the answer to my dilemma- and they ARE AWESOME- I mean, you CANT BEAT the image you get from rubber..... but then i started to hear that in the US Stampin up were trying to find Photopolymer that DIDN'T crack, degrade, and stain.....   and it seems that they have been successful in their search! One of the great thing Stampin up is known for is their QUALITY products- and this, Im sure will be no exception!
