Training day - swaps

Hi all

I had the privilege of spending a lovely day crafting with my my wider Stampin' Up! team this weekend. Organised by my fab upline, Fiona and another very talented demo who runs her own successful team, Pip.

It's customary for demo's to  exchange 'swaps' and I received some very beautiful projects which will serve as inspiration to me and my customers.

This was my swap.

I love the bright colours of the All Abloom dsp stack and I popped chocolates inside too!

This design was shown to demo's in America at their catalogue launch and I used the dimensions provided by BJ's Stampin' Spot here.

Weekly Deals - 3 September 2014

Hello all

The school holidays are over and it's a great time to get back in the craft room!

As well as sharing this weeks deals I'm also going to share a project I made to show you how to use some of the products in this weeks selection.

(sorry about blurry pic, click on image to take you to deals)

As you can see we have a selection of re-inkers and our simply pressed clay on offer. These products are really fun and easy to use, let me show you.

Take a small piece of the simply pressed clay.

The clay comes in white so simply add your re-inker to match your project. I'm using Melon Mambo as I don't have any of the colours in the weekly deals (yet!)

You will get messy! It's a good idea to wear disposable gloves and make sure you protect your work area. Once the re-inker is on your clay, work it in until you have a good even colour.

You will receive two silicone molds with the simply pressed clay enabling you to make buttons and flowers. Each mold has 3 designs and I've chosen the flowers to show you.

Press your clay into the mold

Pop your flowers out of the mold and leave to air-dry.

I added some bling  before they dried :)

And made this tag using the flowers

If you have any quetions let me know! Thanks for stopping by.
