January – February 2021 Newsletter

Welcome 2021

Have you been having a great summer holiday?  I hope it’s been very special for you and your loved ones.  We’ve been chilling and doing ‘jobs’ around the house as well as a bit of crafting.  But now, the kids are back at school and it’s time share some Stampin’ Up! and crafting news with you.

Our garden has thrived in the mild weather and plentiful rain.  It’s provided inspiration as well as some extra weeding and mowing (thanks Pete!)  I hope that your garden and environment have delighted you.

Our hydrangeas linked perfectly with Hydrangea Hill Suite in the new January-June 2021 Mini Catalogue, so naturally I wanted to create with it.  You’ll also find more examples below and in this link

Hey Chick and Birthday Chick

During Sale-a-Bration 2017, we were blown away by how much you loved the Hey Chick Stamp Set.  We decided to bring it back – along with coordinating dies and a completely new bundle (Birthday Chick) created in the same style.  These items are only available until 30 June 2021 and while stocks last. Here is the link.

Other Samples & Techniques to Share

Hydrangea Hill Suite

The basket of flowers from our garden brings Pete’s and my Mum into the picture.  Their flowers and love of gardening were my inspiration for these cards.  I am sure our hydrangea plants all derive from their cuttings.

We are so lucky at SU to have so many talented artists and designers.  They have captured the colours and blooms perfectly.   The other DSP designs in the pack are equally stunning.    

The Hydrangea Hill Suite comprises Hydrangea Haven Bundle (save 10%), Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass Acetate, Gorgeous Grape 3/8” Ribbon, Pastel Pearls and Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper. Here is the link to my blog post for more information and samples. 

Berry Blessings and Hearts

Sale-a-Bration Berry Blessing Bundle (Berry Blessings Stamp Set + Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper) is a Level 2 SAB offering (FREE with $180 spend).

It was perfect to team with our Hearts Punch Pack for our February theme of love. Valentine, Galentine, Love, Friendship, Care and Empathy; all especially poignant at this time.  Here is the link to my blog post.

Love You Always + Quite Curvy Bundle

The Love You Always Suite for the J-J 2021 Mini Catalogue is stunning and perfect for our February Love Theme.  Here it is paired with Quite Curvy Bundle. Here is the link to read more.

These alternate cards feature the same layout and uses SAB Paper Blooms DSP, Rococo Rose Ribbon, Linen Thread, Sahara Sand Ink Pad and Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink Blends to colour the birds.
