Just Add Ink #131

It is that time of the week again to share another Just Add Ink challenge with you and this time it is a colour challenge...

Many of the Design Team felt the Garden Green in this colour combination was the real challenge, however, if you have look at what they came up with I wouldn't have thought so.

It wasn't my week to create but as I had just recently received my preorder from Stampin' Up!'s upcoming new catalogue I just had to play with some of my new acquisitions. So here is my card for this week's colour challenge....

Thanks for stopping by and have with this week's colour challenge.

Digital Scrapbooking

Digital Scrapbooking is not something I usually do, although I have made one or two pages in the past as part of a scrapbooking challenge, and today I had a play with something I received in my Stampin' Up! preorder a My Digital Studio CD (although My Digital Studio is not yet coming to Australia...but soon I hope) and the images it had I could use with my Adobe Photoshop program.

Anyway, here is my attempt at digital scrapbooking, although I think I much prefer the hands-on style, getting inky fingers, cutting cardstock for mounting and adding embelishments to my pages. This was a day I still remember celebrating with my daughter when she turned 18...when she went skydiving...not me!

Her whole experience is still available for viewing on YouTube here.

Now I need to get back to the card I started creating with some of my other new goodies and get that finished!

Oh YES! Oh NO!

Oh YES! My sneak peak order, plus new catalogues, have arrived...

So what to do first, sit down and look through my FREE copy of the catalogue (benefit of being a demo!) or play with my new products?

Oh YES!...sit down and drool over the other new products in the catalogue...then go play!

Oh NO! Now my wishlist has grown so long!!! There is so much lovely new products being released that I just want it now and can't wait until 1 September when the new catalogue goes live...some new stamp sets to colour, new Big Shot dies, new punches and of course my favourites new Designer Series Paper (DSP) and accessories, plus much more!

I think not only will I have to play with my new items but I will have to start planning for my catalogue watch this space!

JAI 130 - Just Add...Blue & Bling!

Well it is another Friday and that means another Just Add Ink challenge and this week it was my turn to do the post and to also put together a project as part of the Design Team for this of course I had to find some time in my busy schedule at the moment to make a card.

The challenge this week, suggested by the beautiful Nikki Spencer, is to Just Add...Blue & Bling!  I had an idea in my head and although it has come together it wasn't quite as well as I had imagined it, however, as I didn't have the time to redo it, it will have to suffice. Yes, I know we are always our own harshest critics!

Here is my card with my blue brayered sky and the bling is the Dazzling Diamonds on the trees and the embelishments, although I do wish I hadn't put on the rhinestone on the tree-top, but once it was on it had to stay there!

Thanks for stopping by and your lovely comments, if you find the time and desire to make them, now you should pop on over to the Just Add Ink blog and join in with this week's challenge too!

Going, going, gone!

Well it is that time of the year when Stampin' Up! retire some of their current products to make way for other new and exciting products in the soon to be released catalogue (available from 1 September). These retiring products are only while stocks last, so they will be going, going, gone!

To view the list of stamps CLICK HERE
To view the list of accessories CLICK HERE

When you look at the retired accessories list, you’ll note that all Stampin’ Pads are listed. This is for two reasons: (1) Craft Stampin’ Pads will now only be available in black and white; and (2) Stampin' Up! are introducing a new Firm Foam pad in Classic Stampin’ Pads with the 2012-2013 annual catalogue. The Firm Foam pads offer better ink coverage and, in turn, better stamped images.

In addition, you will some markers and cardstock listed and this is because in the new catalogue only select Stampin’ Write Markers will be available individually (Stampin’ Write Markers in Colour Families will continue to be offered), 12" x 12" Textured Card Stock will no longer be offered, and 12" x 12" Smooth Card Stock will only be available in select individual colours and colour collections.

Some other points to note are:
  • colours that are retiring are the 2010-12 In Colors (Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Concord Crush and Blushing Bride).
  • the Stampin' Scrub is just being reconfigured. The new Scrub will be larger.
  • the Stampin' Spots (mini ink pads) will only be available in the "Getting Started" colour collection.
  • Stampin' Up! will be offering a new, improved Trimmer, with more features. The new blades will not fit our current trimmer, so if you have the current trimmer you might like to stock up on blades now.

* Breaking News! These items are already SOLD OUT...
  • Peach Parfait Classic Stampin' Ink Refill
  • Concord Crush Classic Stampin' Ink Refill
  • More Mustard Stampin' Write Marker
  • 3/16" Gold Brads
