Stampin Up Blessed Easter

Happy New Year to you all, it's been a long time, ...  Seems quite odd to say that after my headline of Blessed Easter. We have some fantastic happenings here at Stampin Up, not only have we our annual Stampin Up Sale a Bration  where you can earn free product for every £45 you spend , we have a new seasonal mini catty out at the same time how wonderful is that!! I will be loading links to both shortly.

So, our Stampin Stars team headed by Natalie, a few of us have decided to showcase some inspiration for you, in a blog hop.  As you know we, as demos - be it business or just buy for yourself hobby demos, get the chance to preorder what we want from the catty's and to earn Sale a Bration items.  A great opportunity for us to showcase these new products for you too, ...  It's hard to choose from such fab items, so inspiration is what we all need don't you think!

Welcome blog hoppers, Cayleigh has such fab inspiration doesn't she, ....  thank you Cayleigh ..

We had our team training day Saturday, and I love these events for all the chatter, the make n takes, and best of all the swaps,

My swap used the Blessed Easter single stamp, hence the title!

At a recent class, I demo'd the masking tape technique  and got the ladies to have a play themselves, whilst I used the tape as three stripes, my good friend Shirley chose to make a cross design with it, so I cased this design  and came up with my swap,
I used gorgeous grunge to help the design along, I was really pleased how it came out, ....  Simple, yet stunning,,....
The colours I used were basic black, so saffron, whisper white,.....  Shall we take a look....



Here is some more swaps from Saturdays team training day, ..
Made by Sarah Lower, Karen Franks, Sue Bridge, Andrea Nichols, Cary Buckham.


Thanks for stopping by - I hope you enjoyed  the visit!  Don't forget to carry along the hop to my fab friend Lesley Lendon who is a massive inspiration to me! Use the button below to hop forward.

My Digital Studio... (MDS)

Well MDS (My Digital Studio) is well and truly here, I don't know about you but I am very software shy!!   I can do something well enough when shown, but I don't have the patience to spend too much time over things, nor do I have the time if truth be known!!

I needed some flyers for a Big London Show I was promoting Stampin Up with Stephanie-Emma and Natalie, and I wanted to advertise some of my upcoming classes, I decided to get to it and use MDS to help me get them out there, ...

Now I could have gone for the FREE version BUT for only £13.95 it kinda makes sense to get the full version, I love that it has retired images on there and so some of my favourites I can still use and show and if you like them and missed them first time round you can get them again...

I won't lie this flyer took me 3 days in all to get just as I wanted it, obviously I didn't spend 24hrs on it but a fair amount of time spread over 3 days....
 
I thought it showed a fair amount of products on their, embellishments, shadow stamping, layering, DSP,   ...  You can purchase MDS through my online shop and download it straight away!!
 
Now I have  a great all dayer on the 26th Oct as you can see on the flyer, we will be making a Christmas Banner, a box for it to go in and some Christmas Cards, the fee includes a goody bag of products you will use on the day and there will be more than enough left over to take home with you and make more!!  Also includes a light lunch and refreshments throughout the day..
It's not a good picture, you can't see the glitterati that's going on, it really is stunning,   The day is £35 and a 50% deposit is needed to secure your spot.
Just email me @ simplyfairies@yahoo.com

Toil & Trouble washi tape Halloween......

Hello There, I hope you are enjoying the sudden warm weather we have been having the last few days, I know I am...

The other day I said that I have been on a secret mission, whilst I would have loved to have been a bond girl, I am rather much more like Miss Money Penny!!  But I loved my secret Mission, well in the end I did!!

Have you ever come across a product that is soooo NOT you!!  Well when I was asked by our Stampin Up country manager Paula and her PA Kelly would I like to design some bits for the upcoming Stamping Up Creative tour I jumped at the chance!!  A chance to play with products that have not yet come into the country could I not!!

When my parcel from the lovely Kelly arrived I opened it and my heart sank and I started to feel sick what on earth am I going to make with these, I got quiet  tearful, I will be honest my head spun and not with ideas,  for a couple of weeks I left them in their packet and looked at them now and then and thought ack what will I do with that skeleton oh my and shoved them back in their package, and then I left myself with one day to play, and I had no choice but to get focussed and ink them up after all they were going to be shown around the country to a lot of demonstrators far more talented than me so I had to put my big girl pants on and get down to it!!

Well I can tell you once I started I couldn't stop, and in the end I wondered what on earth it was that I didn't like about what was in the package oh yes that skeleton, Lol and he is on nearly all of the creations, I found him kinda cute in the end!!

Would you like to see them, YES I hear you shout get a move on!!   Here they are....
 Do you like my mummy cupcake, I made it last year as a sample so I do hope no one gets hungry and eats!!

  I LOVE this picture so much I made two as I wanted one for my display at the Allie Pallie show I did.., I got the frame from Sainsbury's....



I did use extra items of my own, Gorgeous Grunge Stamp set, Sassy Salutations, Off The Grid, Tags for you, Halloween Bash and The Witches Brew DSP papers, Natural Trim, Linen Thread and Candy Dots, Tag a Bag Gift Boxes.  1 3/4 Circle Punch, Label Bracket Punch.
Colour Scheme inspired by the Witches Brew DSP, Summer Starfruit, Pumkin Pie, Basic Grey and Basic Black....

Summer Silhouettes Stampin Up set....

Hello again, Today I wanted to share a card I made for my Wednesday class held at Crayford, Summer Silhouettes is just a gorgeous set don't you think, my head is spinning with all the designs I want to make with this set!!
I used the fab die from Stampin up Oval Accent Bigz Clear,  and my favourite Framelits set Apothecary Accents,  Now this card was cased, well the layout was and the mechanics of the card, I changed the stamp set and the colours, Wild Wasabi and Perfect Plum, with very vanilla, don't they just compliment each other!!   I am really pleased with how this turned out and the girls loved it!!

 
I also used Stampin Up's Papillion potpourri and it's matching punch Bitty Butterfly....  The sentiment is from the perfect pairs stamp set, punch out with the modern label punch , all from Stampin Up.  I used the stamp on stamp off technique, and stamped the flowers again on a separate piece of card,  cut out and screwed up the flower and fixed them using a dimensional pad. Attached tiny brads from stampin up to the butterfly and the label, wrapped linen thread around looping through the vintage faceted buttons..
 
Don't forget to pop back on the 2nd when our new Stampin Up catalogue launches!!

Stampin UP training swaps




Hello my fellow crafters, it's been a real busy time in the Fee household , myself and Paul have had a few days in Ireland  what a beautiful friendly country, I had a Mega shop in Belfast city centre, oh wow some fabulous shops,  we found one that had everything from one off pieces of clothes to food, the most fantastic homemade scones, oh gosh pear and vanilla scones  they melted in our mouths...  Then it was back to blighty and down to business  Stampin Up business, we had training with my upline Natalie and there were 32 of us, and our country manager  Paula Gorry came along..  I was asked to do some projects using the new papers arriving in July in our new Stampin Up catalogue called Soho Subway...  but those I will show you on Tuesday as we are having a Stampin Stars BLOG HOP, showcasing new products Today I would like to show you my swaps that I made, I used some new colours that we have out in July, new in ours and from the colour refresh.  I also used a stamp set that I earned for free called Happy Day..  I used Stampin up's midnight muse, Summer Starfruit, Raspberry Ripple Strawberry Slush (new in colour) and Smokey Slate (colour refresh), Old Olive and Early Expresso,  stamp the medallion image from Stampin Up's Happy Day set a real cute image makes for fabulous backgrounds. And then I stamped a tag from another new set coming our way in July called Label and punched it out using a matching punch that also coming.

Using the retiring in colours island indigo, calypso coral and pool party inks, ribbon (from Sale a Bration past) and card stock. Oh and not forgetting the fab linen thread for added texture. The stamp set I used is the  Stampin Up Best of everything stamp set...  How cute eh!!

Feel Goods.........Telford Stampin Up Regionals Swaps....

She believed she could, so she did!!    Sooooo true of this weekend!!   I had a fabulous girly weekend away at the Stampin Up Telford Regional training event!!   It just so happened to correspond with my Birthday, and WOW didnt my lovely friends lay on the most fabulous evening I have had in a VERY longtime!!   I was thoroughly spoilt, with lots of pressie and handmade birthday card to which I shall show you later this week!  So Thankyou to Natalie, Zoe and Pip for organising my special treat!!

Following Friday nights antics we had a day of training , WOW WOW WOW thats all I can say, If it wasn't great enough to come home with loads of Orla Kiely and Liz Earle pressies from my wonderful friends, Saturday just continued the excitement of whats to come in the VERY near future!!  As well as catching up with other wonderful demos I have gotten to know during my Stampin Up reign, we craft, we see demos and share fairs from other demo's win prizes to which my lovely friend Mrs wonka aka Zoe  won a free entry ticket to this years Stampin Up convention worth £150, we get a sneak preview of whats to come, and WOW have we got some special stuff coming our way in the next month or so!! BUT I can't share I am afraid, that's one of the bonus' of being a demo, seeing and getting to know what's coming in the new catty and other exciting stuff...

For now though I would like to share my name badge and matching swaps I made, we got asked again this training to make our own badges using our own creativity!!    And this is where the feel goods stamp set comes into play, I had NO time at all to make the things I wanted to, I wanted to make a little gift for my downline, my upline and two of my sidelines... To thank them for their support and to see the looks on their faces when I gave them what I created!!  

I had no time, BUT  I believed I could SO I made sure I did!!...   Using  Stampin Up's Feel Goods stamp set, and the beautiful new Butterfly Punches all from our Spring catty, and some papers from our annual catty, and the Oval accent bigz clear die, I set about to making my creations, with the help of my downline Sarah Lower in our hotel room after our shenanigans of the birthday dinner!!  I wanted the butterflies to be dangly  not just stuck on, I wanted to give  movement,  a little wow on an otherwise simple card....

The colourways I chose were funky and bright, I used Rich Razzelberry and Old Olive!! and of course a bit of Bling!!

Well thats enough from me for now, do pop by soon , I have more to share with you!!
