Well hello and welcome! What an awesome surprise Stampin' Up! had up their sleeve for us, hey? An early release of a new Suite? Yes please, I hear you scream!

So as you may have guessed The Share What You Love Suite early release is a tribute to each and every crafter that has helped Stampin' Up! become the company it is today. So congratulations to all of you, big pat on the back and kiss on the cheek.

Today I have the absolute pleasure to present to you my creations with the Gotta Have It All Bundle (#149812) / Lot Il me faut tout (#149814).

These products are currently only available to Demonstrators (another perk of being a demonstrator!) If you want to order these before they are available to customers then Join My Team and select your Starter Kit ! If you want to join my team in May, then you can choose these Bundles as part of your Starter Kit (and still get the free gifts)! En Mai 2018, les lots peuvent être ajoutés à la sélection des Fournitures de lancement d’une nouvelle démonstratrice (les articles gratuits seront inclus).

Of course, my customers should not worry as you will be able to purchase these bundles from May 1st - but how about becoming a demonstrator? If you need any more information then be sure to contact me, I would love to welcome you to my team.

Don't delay with your order because these bundles are not available in the new catalogue, so you will definitely want to get your hands on the products right now, right? And if you are wanting the à la carte option, as a demonstrator you need to order before 1st May.

OK are you ready for the fun part ?

I have cards, a little basket and a Spring inspired sampler to share with you, so read on and feast your eyes as I explain what you get in the bundle, how I was inspired to create and how you can use this bundle with your customers in workshops and ateliers.

So let's start with a card and basket that highlights the beautiful Share What You Love Speciality DSP. Aren't the colours beautiful. I never like to just stamp a sentiment and leave it like that, I always look for ways to add a little bit of a twist to my cards. When I hold workshops I always encourage my attendees to try something different with a sentiment, like cutting it up or emphasising just part of the sentiment, as I have done here on my card below. The word "amie" (friend) really stands out like this and to highlight it even more I used one of the background stamps to add colour too.

And to highlight the DSP I stamped the flower as though it was a continuation of the pattern and then added the ribbon to deceive your eye into thinking it is! Neat idea, hey? Give it a try at your next workshop and see if your attendees like the idea.

And how beautiful is the Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon / Ruban en velours Fruit des bois. Another trick I'm sharing for your workshops is the idea of a fake bow. Just cut two strips of ribbon, one slightly longer than the other. Fold the longer one so that the two ends join behind in the middle and secure with a glue dot. Then pop the smaller strip over the middle and secure behind again with a glue dot. You have a bow that isn't really a bow but looks a million dollars (and saves ribbon!)

So onto my next card and this time I'm using the Make a Difference Stamp Set / Set de tampons Faire la différence, some more of the DSP and the new Pearlised Doilies / Napperons nacrés. This card is perfect to offer at your workshops as it includes DSP and stamping. For the more advanced crafter you can pick your own sentiment with this stamp set, so each card can be personalised as the creator wishes. And the script on this stamp set is just perfect, right up to date.

So my final card has another great technique to offer at your workshops, I'm not sure what it's called but we'll call it Extended Stamping! To do this technique you need to have a smaller matt than your card base. With this matt I used the large background image to add colour around the edges. Then I temporarily adhered it to my base to stamp the flowers and leaves. Then I removed it to add the strip of DSP behind and the bakers twine onto the front piece (not forgetting the little jewel too!) After stamping the sentiment I adhered my panel with Stampin' Dimensionals to make it stand out.

So to sum up, you could certainly offer all the three cards at a workshop (and the little 3D basket too) and I bet your customers would be knocking down your door to attend!

Now onto the Spring Sampler. My workshops are usually around 3 hours and this creation would probably fill that time perfectly. And of course your attendees can choose their own quotes and personalise their sampler as they want (with photos, for example). My sampler will fit in an Ikea Ribba frame (these are readily available and cheap too). In my workshops I like to offer this size of sampler so that my attendees can swap out the sampler according to the season :)

This quote is by Robin Williams and is pretty cool !

This quote is so clever ! (I can't take credit for it, I found it on google!)

How pretty is this DSP? Your customers are going to love it, believe me. I used the large background image stamp and the Old Olive ink to add colour to the doily.

These labels included in the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit / Lot d'ornements partagez ce que vous aimez are such a great size for stamping your sentiments to add to your cards or other projects, here I've attached mine with the mini paper clips included in the kit.

So, wow, that felt like a lot of photos and explanations and congratulations if you made it to the end! I hope I have inspired you to not only get creating with this bundle but also given you ideas on how to use it with your customers and workshop attendees too.
