Dragonfly Dreams Stamp-a-stack class


I did a stamp-a-stack class last weekend featuring the Dragonfly Dreams bundle from the Occasions Catalogue. I love this bundle.....actually I love pretty much all of the products from the Occasions Catalogue!

I used Affectionately Your Designer Series Paper and copper embossing.
This beautiful card was inspired by Jenny Hall. 

I paired up the Dragonfly Dreams and the So In Love bundle to create this card - I love how the
Stampin' Up! products all coordinate so well together. Inspired by My Crafted Creations



This is a recessed window card - these cards require some measuring and a few cuts with a craft knife.
I included some of the Sale-a-bration DSP In the Lines and coloured with watercolour pencils.
 I added some shimmer on the dragonfly with wink of Stella.

Monday Morning Update - just a little bit late!

Hi Ladies,
I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend! Sorry for this update being a day late, I was away and had internet access!
If you have any punches please read the information about taking care of them!

Sale-a-bration
It’s not too late to earn yourself some free product. Sale-a-bration will continue until the end of the month. Please click on the link above to my web site for all the details.

Classes this week
Wednesday, 15th March: Scrapbook club. Make a double layout. Please bring your photos, adhesives and basic tools. The cost is $15.00.
Thursday, 16th March: Project Club. Make two cards, the cost is $10.00 and just bring yourself. There are still places available in all clubs, Please let me know if you would like to join in.

Punches!
Ok, we all have and love our punches! I thought that I would share some information on how to keep them sharp. When you get a bit of furry edge on you punched shapes there are a few things that you can try to clean the edge up. Get some aluminium foil and punch a few times. If this doesn’t work, try the heaver weight foil that you get in the throw away bbq trays. This should be all that is needed to bring the edge back to life!
New punches – please make sure that you use fairly quickly to make sure that they work well. Check how they are punching through paper and cardstock and also that the little plastic locking mechanism on the bottom of the punch is working well. If there are any issues, please let me know straight away so that I can contact Stampin’ Up! and get the issue sorted.

Combination 1: Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry
