Catalogue Inspiration

Have you ever been in the mood to craft but when you come to sit down nothing comes to mind to create and you need some new inspiration. Have you ever taken our catalogue and looked not just at the products but at the actual samples in there?

(Images from pages 18,51,85,91, and 122 of the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue)

Stampin’ Up! have always created some beautiful samples to show off their products and I love looking through the catalogue pages for some inspiration.

Today I thought I share a few of my favourite samples from our current 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue

As you can see the catalogue is full of ideas for when you need a little inspiration.

Hey Birthday Chick Co-ordinating Products Release

Today see the launch of three new Stampin’ Up! products which coordinate with the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set from the Jan – June Mini Catalogue. I say three new products, but one is actually a re-release from the 2017 Sale-A-Bration the Hey Chick stamp set.

I loved this stamp set back in 2017 and still have the set in my collection so I’m thrilled Stampin’ Up! have brought it back for a couple of months to partner with the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set. But the best news is both sets now have matching die sets to go with them. I can’t wait for mine to arrive as I love these stamped images but fussy cutting them is tricky and now with dies it will be quick and easy, something we all love in papercrafting!

The Hey Chick and related products will be availbale until June 30th 2021, here are links to all the Hey Chick related products:

Here are some samples made by the Stampin’ Up! team:

Put some fun into your crafting with these feathery friends.

Inspiration Tuesday: So Much Love

With the Get and Go! Promotion ending tomorrow I thought I’d share with you some inspiration for using one of the free stamp sets you will recieve if you join Stampin’ Up! before the end of the month. I’m show casing the So Much Love stamp set today as its one of my favourite kinds of stamp set. One because its floral and two its a stamp set with which has a lot of versalitility, which is great if you’re just starting out.

The first couple I’m going to show you are all based around the additional card packs you will recive in your starter kit this month.

The next couple use my favourite product Stampin’ Blends and some designer paper to enhance the cards:

These last few are more involved using heat embossing, embossing folders and fussy cutting.

I hope these samples have given you some inspiration for using the So Much Love stamp set. If you’d like to take advantage of the Get & Go Promotion and join Stampin’ Up!
