Introducing the Texture Boutique Embossing Machine

Hi Everyone,

The Stampin' Up! gurus have been designing new tools for us to use! This week, they've released the Texture Boutique Embossing Machine.

The Texture Boutique Embossing Machine works with Textured Impressions Embossing Folders to transform ordinary cardstock, paper, metallic foil, or vellum into an embossed, textured masterpiece.

This machine embosses only; it does not die cut. Comes with 1 pair of Standard Embossing Pads and 1 Mylar Shim.
Price: $49.95
Product code: 132657

Texture Boutique Embossing Machine

There's a short 2min video here on Stampin' Up!'s youTube channel.

I think I might have to get myself one of these to work alongside my Big Shot at my classes and events.

ESAD Sale-a-bration Blog Hop!!


Hi Everyone,

I'm very excited to be taking part in the ESAD Sale-a-bration Blog Hop! If you are following the blog hop, you will be coming here from Corina's blog. Otherwise grab yourself 20minutes or so of inspirational timeout and start the blog hop here now.

I haven't joined in a blog hop for a while, and Sale-a-bration is always an exciting time because of all the free gifts available!! Down below I've explained more about ESAD.

So, these are my projects, I've focussed on the free DSP that you can earn:

Anyone guess it was going to have a green interior? Pear Pizzazz has got to be one of my favourite greens!

Quickly made this card up from the leftover of my DSP from the fantasy box and some co-ordinating cardstock. Check out the new SAB embossing folder - it's a spotty one!!!

I've wanted to make a fantasy box or stepper box for a long time, in fact I've probably had the tutorial I used saved on my computer for years now! Little did I realise how easy they are!

What is ESAD?
ESAD stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and it is an on-line group just for Australian and New Zealand Stampin' Up! d
We love what we do & love to share with our customers, friends, and wonderful blog visitors. We also share what we love in our ESAD Demonstrator community, through swaps, challenges, sharing knowledge, ideas & friendship, and we're always there to help and support each other.

January Class

Hi Everyone,

Well classes are back up and running for 2014! We started off the year with the bold and bright, making these 4 cards.

All the stamps on the background are from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and are all stamped in much the same way for each card.... Just 2 were flipped 180 degrees when I was adhering them to the base cardstock.

The sentiments are from Delightful Dozen and Made for You.

I also used my favourite product at the moment, Candy Dots! Love these little stick-on, brad-like embellishments!

If you are interested in coming to a class the next one is 21st February, just leave a comment with your email address and I will send through the details. Alternatively, please check out my facebook page.

Christmas Wrap-up

Hi Everyone,

Wow, it's been a while since I've blogged!! There's lots to catch up on...

Firstly, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are enjoying the start to the new year.

Here's a quick glance at some of the Christmas cards we were making at some of the Christmas classes this year.
Ain't Rudolph cute!

One of my girls helped me with the sponging

And another Rudolph

Mmmm new rubber didn't ink up too well on it's first use, not to self, must stamp on scrap paper first!

Can't go wrong with a Christmas tree, some of the baubles are the bright candy dots

I made quite a few of these angels in all different colours but it seems they are camera shy and have flown away...

Strips on washi tape on whisper white card - lifted off the page with dimensionals

We made this in raspberry ripple & strawberry slush too, not traditional Christmas colours but it looked great!

I'm going to schedule a couple of posts over the next few days with specials and promotions that are currently running and keep an eye out for the Sale-a-bration dates too!!
