Autumn/Winter Launch Photos

Hi everyone,

I've finally made some time to photograph some of the creations from my mini catalogue launch last weekend. I had a lot of fun - some of my friends had never stamped before, and some have been stamping for a lot longer than me, and I think everyone enjoyed themselves!
The picture above is of the table gift - Kraft pillow boxes with chocolate hearts inside. Each guest's initial was stamped on the curly label in either Soft Suede, Melon Mambo or Rich Razzleberry (our new In Colours). The leaves are from the new Extra Large 2-Step Bird punch.
Below are some projects using the Big Shot and the Cottage Wall colour scheme:
Another quick card using the Movers & Shapers die:
Different ways to use the Fancy Favour die (and some more new colour combos):
We did two Make & Take projects on the day. For the first one, the ladies used one of the In Colours with the 'A Little Treat' stamp set and punches to make this cute balloon:

I thought Rich Razzleberry would be the most popular new colour, but Melon Mambo won the day! So many different sentiments fit inside the 1 3/8" circle punch, too.

The second card we made was a monochromatic card using the Extra Large 2-Step Bird punch (colours were Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip or Riding Hood Red):
The ladies were so creative with these ones, and we had varying colour schemes, beautiful tulips, stamped backgrounds and different layouts. I wish I'd had my camera there.
I got the idea for using coordinating DSP on the bird's wing from Fiona Platzer's blog.
Thanks to all who attended, and congratulations again to those of you who won prizes! I hope you had a great afternoon,


  1. Wow Genelle, you did so many beautiful projects at your mini launch! Your guests sure were spoiled! Your 'movers & shapers' cards are the 1st I've seen using the new dies, and they're lovely! I'm tempted to get them now :)
    Thanks for sharing all your gorgeous creations,

  2. Hi Genelle! Love the clean crisp design of your blog ... makes mine look a little fussy and cluttered!!! Might need to do a spring clean BEFORE SPRING!!! So much to look at and absorb in this post! I really enjoyed poring over these projects! Thanks for your email! Hugs, Andrea xxx

  3. Oooh Genelle I wish I had been there! You made some beautiful projects. Glad you had a great day and wishing you an even better day tomorrow for your birthday!
