SPRING Mini Catalogue - FINISHES MIDNIGHT Tomorrow!

The Spring Mini Catalogue finishes tomorrow

I have had LOADS of Top-Sellers with this mini - including the 'Scribble This' and the 'Office Accoutrement' stamp sets.

The eager arrival of our NEW Summer Mini Catalogue on the 1st of December, means we must say goodbye to our Spring Mini tomorrow at midnight. While some of the stamp sets and accessories may make next years Main Catalogue in 2008, they also may not!

Tomorrow is also your last chance to buy the All in the Family stamp set before next April. Purchase it now and pay only $65.10 including postage. This is a specially reduced price, that i'm offering for the month of November only to help with raising as much money as possible for Dave Abbotts family.

Also, dont forget your christmas 12x12 papers for all those 'christmassy' projects you will be completing over the next couple of months - The Just in Thyme Holiday promotion is finishing on the 15th December.

Prepare to be DAZZLED!!!!

ohhh im so excited
this is my first EVER online Tutorial on my blog.
I really hope you enjoy this, as I'm hoping to do more!
Be sure to comment - Let me know what you liked about the Tutorial and If you have any suggestions on improvements or Ideas for future Tutorials.

This is the WOW demonstration I did at the recent Melbourne Stampin' Up! Regionals

Step 1: COLLECT your Materials

For this project I'm using:
Onboard Accents - Heart shape chipboard, Whisper White pigment ink pad, Heat and Stick Powder, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Heat gun tool.

Step 2: INK up your chipboard

Using the Whisper White Pigment ink pad, ink up the entire chipboard shape.

Step 3: Sprinkle HEAT and STICK powder ALL over your 'inked' chipboard shape

Using one of our Powder Pal trays, makes using embossing powders and glitters a breeze to clean up. Once you have covered your chipboard shape with the Heat and Stick Powder, tap off excess into the tray and then pour back into its container.

Step 4: HEAT set the Heat and Stick Powder

With your heat gun, heat the Heat and stick powder until it goes 'glossy' - take care as you CAN OVER HEAT and burn. I like to use a rotating motion. You will see the powder go from Matte to Glossy fairly quickly.

Step 5: Adding the DAZZLING DIAMONDS

Sprinkle the Dazzling Diamonds over your Chipboard piece - that is NOW 'sticky' with the heated Heat and Stick Powder - Tap off excess into your Powder Pal Tray.

Step 6: Heat Set your Dazzling Diamonds
Once again use your Heat Gun Tool to 'quickly' re-heat and to Set the Glitter. This only takes a moment - be very careful not to OVER HEAT.

The Abbott Family

Im memory of Dave Abbott,
Stampin' Up!'s Australian General Manager passed away in October from a very rare blood disease. I was unfortunate to not have met Dave - but from what other demonstrators have said about him, he was an amazing man and touched the hearts of many people.

In honour of Dave, Stampin' Up! are releasing the All in the Family stamp set for the month of November.

All proceeds from the world wide sale of this stamp set during November will go to Dave's family. This is 100% of sales not just profits.
NOVEMBER 1st - 30th 2007

For the month of NOVEMBER, I'm selling this set for $59.15 (plus standard postage charges) I'm offering this stamp set at a LOWER price as I'm forfeiting my commissions on the sale of this stamp set, so that as much funds as possible can be raised for Dave's family.
The set will be in the main catalogue next year but will RRP $73.95.

You can see the FULL COLOUR FLIER here
I have just placed my order for this stamp set...and as soon as I receive it I will be making up some examples to show you all....It truly is a beautiful stamp set.

Please help support Dave's family by purchasing this great stamp set during the month of November.
