12 Weeks of Christmas - Week 12

Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Week 12 already ! Can you believe that !! I hope you have enjoyed all our projects as much as we have enjoyed bringing them to you.

This week we have the lovely Libby Dyson bringing you the projects and they are quick and easy gift giving ideas. You only have a week left until Christmas, so if you’re looking for some quick stocking stuffers, these projects are perfect!

All you really need for these projects is the Envelope Punch Board and a few punches including the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.

Project 1 – Candy Cane Treat Box


Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

These little pouches are so quick and easy to make with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch, some Googly Eyes, ribbon, Blendabilities to colour a Rhinestone and some Candy Canes of course. They easily fit 2 Candy Canes inside and could fit more if you wanted or some other treats. If you don’t want to give sweets, it would fit some coloured pencils inside or other small gifts.

Project 2 – Reindeer Poop (M & Ms Peanuts)


Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

This little treat is made using the Envelope Punch Board, some Joggle Eyes, the Bird Builder Punch, ½” Circle Punch and the White Signo Uni-Ball Gel Pen for highlights.

Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

It fits 1 small packet of M & Ms inside quite neatly and on the back I have adhered the Reindeer Poop Poem (available in the pdf).

Project 3 – Merryteaser from Maltesers Pouch


Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

This treat uses the Envelope Punch Board again. It’s a pouch with a Belly Band and fits 1 of the Merryteasers in it. It would also fit individual chocolates such as Freddo Frogs, Caramello Bears, and Santas etc.

Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

The Santa & Co Designer Series Paper is ideal for making this type of treat pouch and the Bird Builder Punch is a must for Reindeer Antlers.

Now as always we have a special Latte Girls 12 Weeks of Christmas Bundle …

Latte Girls Week 12 Bundle – just $90 plus postage (save over $10!)





Now maybe you’d like to grab the Santa & Co Designer Series Paper as well so we have an Upsized bundle for you …

12 Weeks of Christmas - Bonus Project

Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator


Welcome to our 2nd Bonus Project for the Latte Girls 12 Weeks of Christmas! 

Can you believe it’s Christmas next week? Hard to believe it’s come around so quick!

The lovely Leonie Schroder and Latte Girls fearless leader has made this wonderful project for us today.....but yesterday was a tough day for Sydney and even more for some like poor Leonie and her family..."My apologies for not getting this to you earlier today – I had a bit of a stressful morning with my daughter being on a trip to the Art Gallery of NSW today and that Siege happened in Martin Place and she wasn't replying to my messages and texts so it made for a rather stressful mum!  All is well and she’s home safe and sound – thank you Jesus! "


Now onto the project! 

I had one of my customers ask for a pocket slider card in September that she’d seen online and wanted to know how to make it so I got to designing one and she invited some ladies over and we had a ball making it.  So I thought it would be perfect to replicate Santa coming down the chimney …. 
Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator
Well Ok … so you’ll have to imagine the chimney!  Here in Sydney where I live they’ve actually outlawed those open fireplaces as the smoke pollution was so bad in Winter that it was causing terrible health problems for many people. So our Santa today is a good environmentally friendly Santa! 

So you pull the tab and ribbon and this is what happens … 

Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator
Oh look Santa’s up the top of the card!  I love making this card and thought it best to do a Video Tutorial as well as a written Tutorial as some things are hard to put into words and while it may seem a little fiddly at first they do become easier the more you make them. 

Here’s the Video Tutorial …. 



Now as always we have a special Latte Girls 12 Weeks of Christmas Bundle … 
Latte Girls 12 Weeks of Christmas Bonus Bundle 2 – just $60 plus shipping

Product List

Now maybe you’d really like that tree punch so lets add that and you can get all four items for $80 plus shipping!  Now how nice would that be wrapped under the tree?  Now if you want it for Christmas you’ll need to order it within the next couple of days and you may like to opt for tracking for an extra $3.95 to be sure. 

Remember you’ll need to contact me to get this bundle at this prices as its exclusive to the Latte Girls 12 Weeks of Christmas Design Team! 

Want the written tutorial? No worries – send me an email - narelle@simplystampingwithnarelle.com

Thanks for stopping by today.

Have a great day.
Cheers, Narelle

12 Days of Gift Giving - Day 12

Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Well today is the last day of my Christmas Gift Giving Guide.

I hope I have give  you some ideas for some of the people on your list. Remember that all the specials I have promoted throughout this Guide are valid until Christmas Eve. So you still have time to order them, but if you order after today I can not gaurantee delivery in time for Christmas.

Even after all the suggestions I have given you, do you still have people on your list who love Stampin' Up! but so far nothing has appealed. Then todays Gift is for them. A Gift Voucher.

Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Available in any amount you like. You can have a pretty paper version or they can  be sent electronically to you or to the recipient on your behalf. Give the gift that is always a delight to receive - shopping with someone else's money.

What about a voucher for yourself ! Are you sick of getting the same old boring presents or the same box of chocolates every year. Then why not get something you truly want. Get your family and friends to contact me to purchase your voucher.

I hope you have enjoyed my Gift Guide. If I can help in any way, be sure to email me.

Have a great day.
Cheers,
Narelle

12 Days of Gift Giving - Day 11

Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

It's the second last day of my Gift Giving Guide. Todays gift is all about co-ordination.

One of the things I hear a lot from people who are just being introduced to Stampin' Up! is that they love how everything co-ordinates. Many crafters who haven't used Stampin' Up!'s products are often frustrated when trying to find the perfect colour ink pad to go with the patterned paper they have, or the right colour ribbon to match the card stock colour they have chosen.

With Stampin' Up! we eliminate that problem. No matter what you choose, you will always find an ink and accessory to go with it. So that brings me to todays gift idea for the crafter on your Christmas Gift list.

http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ItemList.aspx?categoryid=984&dbwsdemoid=4008228

The In Colour Collections are new colour collections that are always gorgeous. Each collection has 5 ink pads, matching card stock in both A4 and 12" x 12", designer series paper stack,  markers as well as matching accessories.

http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ItemList.aspx?categoryid=984&dbwsdemoid=4008228

My gift deal I have for you today is this - buy the Ink Pads and Card Stock Pack plus the Designer Series Paper Stack for $85.90 and depending on which collection you choose above, I will give you either the printed clothespins or coloured sequins for free.

This deal is only available from contacting me, not from my online store. Like all my Christmas Gift Giving ideas, these deals are available till Christmas Eve, but if you want delivery in time for Christmas you need to order by tomorrow.

Thanks for dropping by.
Have a great day.
Cheers,
Narelle

12 Weeks of Christmas - Week 11


Oh my Christmas is so close now. Isn't it exciting !! I hope you have all your preparations underway.
Are you hosting Christmas Lunch and  looking for something special as your table centrepiece ?  How cool would it be to be able to tell everyone that YOU made the centrepiece they are all complimenting.  Then check this out.

Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Your very own Christmas Tree made out of paper.

This was so much fun to make. And really didn't take long either. I was going to do a completely different design tree, but suddenly this idea popped in my head. So who was I to argue.

I added some sparkle by using the Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details and some scattered gold sequins from the Gold Sequin Trim.

Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Then I made a star for the top using the Star Framelits and the Bright and Beautiful Stamp Set.

12 Days of Gift Giving - Day 10


Today's gift is all about the making projects easy.

You know one thing I love about Stampin' Up! is that scattered throughout the catalogue they provide you with lists of what you need to make a project. So all the guess work is taken out for you.

One of my favourite projects is on page 104 of the Annual Catalogue. It features a stamp set that suits lots of occasions and the cards are super cute.



Another great You Can Make It that is perfect for this time of year is the cute Gift Bags on page 6 of the Holiday Catalogue.



Buy all the products listed for either of these You Can Make It projects and I will give you a 10% discount on your complete order. Yes that means you get the discount on all products even if you add other things to your order.

This discount can only be applied to your order if you order through me, it is not available in my online store. Please order before Friday 12th December to get your delivery before Christmas.

If you don't like either of these projects and there is another You Can Make It project you prefer, just pop me an email and I will discount that one too.

Thanks for dropping by.
Have a great day.
Cheers,
Narelle

12 Days of Gift Giving - Day 8

Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Day 8 of my Gift Giving Guide is a gift that helps others. Besides helping you complete your gift list, this gift also helps all women. $10 from each purchase is donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

This is a cause that is close to my heart. I lost my Mother In Law to Breast Cancer 8 years ago. She was robbed of the chance to see her grandchildren grow up. So if you purchase nothing else from my 12 Days of Gift Giving Guide, can I ask that you purchase this one. The less families who have to go through that pain the better, and every little donation helps.

Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator


Everyone loves receiving handmade cards. Now you can give them without the fuss of making them, and benefit a great cause at the same time. With Ready. Set. Send. cards we've already done the work of making the cards for you, and for every kit sold, Stampin’ Up! is donating $10 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation!

Just grab a card, write a quick note, and off it goes. Your friends and family will love your handcrafted cards, and you can know that you are making a difference by donating to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Box includes:
* 5 birthday cards
* 5 thank-you cards
* 10 Whisper White envelopes

Price - $19 plus shipping

I am not offering a special deal with this item as Stampin' Up! are already donating a generous amount from each purchase. So this one you can purchase online, just click on the image above and it will take you straight to my store. To make sure you receive them before Christmas, please order before Friday 12th December.

Thanks for dropping by.
Have a great day.
Cheers,
Narelle

12 Days of Gift Giving - Day 7

Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Day 7 of my Gift Giving Guide today is about the tools that make paper crafting easier.

I am sure you have someone on your list who loves to make cards, or do other crafts, and they will tell you that there is always something out there they would love that just makes life easier. It may not be a necessity to have for their craft, but it would be nice. And don't we all put off buying those sorts of things for ourselves because there is always another member of the family who needs something more important.

This tool is one of those. Everyone who makes cards would love one, I know I would.....
http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=132657&dbwsdemoid=4008228
Quickly and easily add texture to your projects with the Texture Boutique and embossing folders.
At only $49.95 this is a great affordable gift for that crafter on your list.

Order this item with me by emailing me before Christmas, and I will give you an embossing folder absolutely free. To ensure delivery before Christmas, please order by Friday 12th December.

Thanks for dropping by today.
Have a great day.
Cheers,
Narelle

12 Days of Gift Giving - Day 6



Day 6 of my Christmas Gift Giving Guide and this one is focused on the crafter who wants to do more. This gift would be perfect for that person on your list who already makes cards and the person who likes to package their gifts to co-ordinate.

So today I present to you the Envelope Punch Board and the Gift Box Punch Board.



Create your own envelopes from any cardstock or Designer Series Paper in up to 66 different sizes in three easy steps:
Step 1. Score and notch your envelope using the built-in notch punch;
Step 2. Round the flap using the built-in corner rounder punch;
Step 3. Fold and adhere the envelope edges.
Punch Board includes an easy-to-use sizing chart (measurements provided in inches and centimeters) and a scoring tool in a storage slot.



When cute wrapping paper just isn't enough, why not make your own box? The punch board creates boxes in a variety of sizes, up to 4" on each side.

Both of these tools would be a valuable and much loved addition to any crafters stash.

My special deal for you until Christmas is this - buy both and instead of the recommended price of $63.90, I will give them to you for $50. This special is only available until Christmas Eve and only if you email me. I can not offer this through my online store. If you want these for Christmas Gifts, then make sure you order with me before 12th December.


While you are here, I must tell you about the Year End-Closeouts happening from now until January 5. Up to 80% off items, including some current items. But get in quick as supplies won't last long.



Also there is a new Occasions Catalogue due to be released in the New Year. I have seen it online and boy oh boy, it is gorgeous. So if you want one before they are released to the public, make sure to email me and let me know.

Well thats it from me today. I hope to hear from you soon.
Have a great day.
Cheers,
Narelle
