February Tutorial

ShonaGai - Peaceful Poppies Elements Tutorial
Stampin' Up! News from ShonaGai
Stampin' Up! Inspiration Project

It may not feel like it, but Winter is just around the corner. I'm shaking off the wet weather blues by creating with some gorgeous new floral stamps from the Mini Catalogue. I think you'll love the style and luxurious colours of the Peaceful Poppies Suite as much as I do.

This is actually a mega-suite, meaning it has two stamp sets and two die sets, plus lots of other awesome coordinating accessories. One of the items from this suite is a hidden gem that I'm showcasing in this month's tutorial, so check it out below!

Have you seen the newly released Coordinating Products that go with favourites from the Mini and Sale-A-Bration catalogues? I love how these products are designed to make it easier to create with, and step-up the style, of some of our most popular new products.


To receive your free Thank you gift for ordering more than $50 but less than $250 through my Online Store this month you need to enter the following Hostess Code when prompted:

P.S. Sale-A-Bration is about half way through, so make sure you shop and get your reward items soon. It's not too late to schedule to host and earn extra rewards, but don't wait as my dates are filling up quickly!

Peaceful Poppies Elements Tutorial

Even a Mini Catalogue can have hidden gems tucked away in it's pages! The Peaceful Poppies Elements are a crafting treasure just waiting to be discovered. This little kit packs a big punch at a small price. It includes 8 sheets of die-cut printed accents that coordinate with the Peaceful Poppies suite.

These aren't your run-of-the-mill die-cuts either. You get a whole selection of die cut images, shapes, and labels with embossing, foil accents, coloured images, and printed vellum that make it quick and simple to step-up the style on your projects.

Plus, if you are wanting to up the artistry, these elements are great for techniques like coloring, embossing, emboss resist, and more.

This tutorial shares how to create 3 note cards that showcase 5 fantastic ways to use the Peaceful Poppies Elements!
