Hello card using Free as a Bird

Hey folks! I have a cute little Hello card to share with you today. As you know I’ve been sharing team things all week, and this is the sort of card I send to new team members along with a token gift like the notebook I shared on Monday. I also make this sort of card for new club members too!

Hello card using Free as a bird from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This card is a different size from my usual cards; as its a 4 x 4″ card base, with layers that are cut 1/8″ shorter and narrower each time. I am really enjoying using Designer Series Paper on cards at the moment, combined with these Stitched Nested Dies in particular, so pretty!

The birds are stamped in Memento Black ink and then coloured using Stampin’ Blends in Light Pool Party, Light Flirty Flamingo and Light Granny Apple Green for a subtle look.

Team Card Swap | Needlepoint Nook Friend Card

Cute Friendship card using Needlepoint Nook from Stampin' Up! with video tutorial from StampinByHannah

One of my favourite things about being a part of Stampin’ Up! is being a part of a fabulous group of like minded people. As a team we have so much fun together, not just when we get together at team and Stampin’ Up! events, but all year around on our Facebook groups. As a team we organise regular events including our recent Blog Hops (for the launch of the Spring Summer Catalogue, and the start of Sale-a-bration!) but also a fun card swap!

Card swaps are usually a BIG part of in person events, but because we only get together a few times a year, we often arrange extra ones to share our creativity and spark someone else’s imagination. Recently, we did a swap based on the new catalogue, I hope to share the cards I received with you soon, but today I thought I’d share the card I sent out

Cute Friendship card using Needlepoint Nook from Stampin' Up! with video tutorial from StampinByHannah

I made 6 of these cards, and they came together surprisingly quickly! Partly due to the fact that I can be pretty organised when it comes to mass producing cards, but also because this stamp and die set has a couple of clever features! The trio of flowers are stamped with one stamp, and die cut with one die, so they are super quick. Also the pretty label, takes two steps, the die collection has a die which cuts the stitched marks, but its actually cut out with a punch! Awesome!

Video Tutorial

My favourite part of this suite though is the fun stitched details. A few of the dies have stitched marks on, and you guys know how much I love a stitched die! But also the stamps and Designer Series Papers also feature pretty stitched details, and actually look like you’ve hand stitched your projects… just with a stamp!

One thing though, this is a stamp set that requires a gentle application of ink, as if you over ink you’re at risk of loosing that pretty stitched details. I would suggest stamping onto some grid paper to get your hand in before you stamp onto your projects with this one!

Want to join in with our next team card swap? All you need to do is join our fabulous team! Sale-a-bration is a great time to grab a Starter Kit and join Stampin’ Up! with a kit that costs you just £99 but allows you to choose £170 worth of Stampin’ Up! goodies, or you could choose a kit that costs £125 and gives you a fabulous Craft tote bag too!

Pootlers Blog Hop | Welcome to Spring Summer with Stampin’ Up!

I am so lucky to be part of a fabulous team of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators. This month we have 2 fun blog hops jam packed full of crafty ideas and inspiration for you all. Our first Pootlers blog hop of 2019 celebrates the launch of the Brand New Stampin’ Up! Spring Summer catalogue. I am so lucky to coordinate these lovely ladies, but even I haven’t seen their creations this time, so I am SO excited to see what they have all made!

Amazing Life card using Stampin' Up! products for the Pootlers Team Blog Hop with StampinByHannah

One of the things I’ve been doing in my own crafting recently is trying to keep things simple, and when Stampin’ Up! make Designer Series Paper as pretty as this it becomes super easy! Here I have used the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper, and used the colours in it (Night of Navy and Balmy Blue) and my inspiration for the rest of the card.

Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper Just Because Card using Stampin' Up! products with StampinByHannah

The stamp on this card says everything, its taken from the new Amazing Life stamp set, which I was lucky enough to get for FREE at a Stampin’ Up! event back in November. I am So Happy to have Stampin’ Up! in my life, as well as the wonderful team of ladies (and gents) some of whom are taking part in the blog hop today. I can wax lyrical about the team, Stampin’ Up! events, the discount and more… but I’ll save you from that, and let you hop through the list of projects below!

Check out the Blog Hop…

An Oops!, An Update and some Happy Mail!

StampinByHannah An Oops!, An Update and some Happy Mail!

An Oops!

Hello! So, I have a bit of an Oops! for you today… I had planned to restart my Christmas Countdown series this week. But, for several reasons I haven’t managed to get the video filmed and uploaded. This is partly down to my poor planning, but also, do you remember on Monday I promised a video, and that it’s also yet to be seen….. yeah, well, I’m having some upload issues. I should have them resolved over the weekend (when I’ve worked out what is going wrong) and I WILL have extra videos for you next week to make up for it! PROMISE!

An Update

Happy Mail!

I LOVE getting cute things in the post, and last week I received 2 gorgeous cards from some of my Stampin’ Sisters…. and I just HAD to share them with you too….

Share what you love friend card from Janice Thomson

This lovely card was sent to me by the gorgeous Janice Thomson of Jazzle Dazzle crafts, as a Thank You for organising out Team Blog Hop a few weeks ago. I LOVE doing these, and Thank You cards are really not necessary, but it’s still always nice to get something through the post! Janice has used the Share What You Love Suite on this card… and one of my absolute favourite pieces of Designer Series Paper!

Frosted Floral Pocket card from Sam Roberts

The second card came from Sam Roberts, of Sam’s Crafty Things. Sam shared a whole week of Thinking of You projects last week and I was so excited to receive one of them! This card uses the fun Pocket Card design from one of our Team Make and Takes from our retreat a few weeks ago, paired with this stunning paper from the Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper Pack. Just Lovely!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I hope to see you over on Facebook tomorrow!

Team Retreat | Make and Take Fun!

Pootles Papercraft Team Retreat Make and Take Project

StampinByHannah Team Retreat Make and Take Fun!

Pootlers Team Photo September 2018

This week I’ve been sharing bits from our fabulous Team Crafting Retreat a few weeks ago. On Monday I shared the Swaps I received, and then Tuesday was the swaps I made. Today I want to share some of the other parts of our team events…

Pootles Papercraft Team Retreat Make and Take Project

Obviously the weekend is dedicated to crafting. This time we had 5 fabulous make and take projects like this one from Pootles Papercraft.

I have to admit that I have only actually completed 2 of the 5 make and take projects…. I spend far too much time chatting and rarely get anything made at all (I’m even worse at official Stampin’ Up! events when we have just been given a new catalogue!).

Pretty envelope card using Perinnal Birthday Pootles Papercraft Make and Takes

This was the other make and take I completed. As well as my fabulous team leader Sam doing her make and take, we always have other demonstrators doing some teaching as well. This card was designed by one of our German team members, Tina, although I also have a version of this card from a few months ago.

As well as all the crafting fun this time we were also treated to a leadership dinner, SO much food (it’s been 2 weeks and I am still full!), and discussions around business topics such as blogging, classes and more.

I adore spending time with the team! Want to join me for the next Team Event? You Can! I am always looking for new team members, you can find all the information about becoming a part of Stampin’ Up! on my Join My Team Page or if you have questions, check out my Joining FAQ!

Team Retreat | Mini Origami Chocolate Boxes

Fun no glue mini box using Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper

StampinByHannah Team Retreat Mini Origami Chocolate Boxes

Pootlers Team Photo September 2018

Yesterday I shared the mountain of swaps I received from the lovely ladies in that photo at our recent Team Retreat in Manchester. Today, I thought I would share the swap I gave them!

I am a big believer in keeping things simple…. especially when you have to make 50 of something. So, I resized a fun box I shared a few weeks ago to fit a popular hazelnut filled chocolate

Fun no glue mini box using Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper

These cute little boxes are so quick and easy to make. In fact, I recently had to attend a train the trainer day as part of my day job where we had to teach each other a skill…. and I taught these! The other ladies where mesmerised as a flat sheet of paper became a fun and useful box!

Mini Origami Chocolate boxes using Tea Room Designer Series paper from Stampin' Up!

These boxes use the fun Tea Room Speciality Designer Series Paper, as it’s a lighter weight that the standard Stampin’ Up! Paper it’s easier to create the fun origami folds of this box.

Team Retreat Swaps…

Pootlers Team Swaps September 2018

StampinByHannah Team Retreat Swaps…

 

Well Hello! I am SO glad to be back blogging again this morning… wondering where I’ve been?! Well, I would love to say I’ve been sunning myself on some hot beach somewhere, but alas no… just struggling with a complete lack of crafty mojo! However, I managed to craft over the weekend, and find time to write some blog posts… and so here I am!

There are some changes coming to StampinByHannah this month as we start the new Stampin’ Up! year and I gear up for the massive challenge that I have set myself this year…. to earn the incentive trip! So, Starting this week I have a weekly Facebook Live planned, along with some other fun classes, clubs and more!

Before we get to that though I thought I would share what I got up to at a recent Stampin’ Up! Team Retreat…

Pootlers Team Photo September 2018

We had THE most fabulous time, and I have a few projects and things to share with you from the weekend over this week.

Today I thought I would share all the wonderful Swaps I received…. Swapping is one of my favourite parts of Stampin’ Up! events. It’s a chance to get a mountain of inspiration in a snap, chat with other demonstrators and bond over your favourite Stampin’ goodies! This time the team out did themselves with some truly wonderful ideas. Click the video to see them all, or there are also some photos of a few of them below….

Swaps Video

—– VIDEO COMING THIS EVENING…… sorry, last minute rush and YouTube failed me 🙁

will share my swap with you tomorrow, but for now here a few images of some of the swaps I received…

Pootlers Team Swaps September 2018

I love the creativity you find in a bag of swaps. Not only in the designs and the items people have made, but also in the things people put in them! This time I found chocolates, sweeties, tealights, hand creams, jewellery, scissor charms, and more!
