Stampin’ Up! UK ULTIMATE PARTY WEEK – Invitations

POOTLES Stampin Up UK Ultimate Party Week.  The Invitation close up. ELEGANT LADIES THEME

Well it is HERE!

The Ultimate Party Week is here! At last! Whoop Whoop!

I have been ridiculously excited about this for a fair few weeks and it’s here!!!! Can you tell that I’m doing the happy dance and jigging in my chair as I type this?

So what is the Ultimate Party Week all about?

This is 7 days of Party Projects with a further 7 complimentary projects in my Online Class.

But, it wouldn’t be an Ultimate anything if there was only 14 projects. Oh no. What if you aren’t having a party that calls for Coastal Cabana and Silver? What if you were having a Boy’s Party? Maybe a Garden Party. How about a Shower, whether for a Baby or Wedding. What about Girls?

This is where the ‘Ultimate’ part comes in….

I will this week show you 7 projects on YouTube in one colour way, the theme is an Elegant Party. And the projects in the Online Class have been filmed following the same colour scheme. And for those who may enquire, I’ve restricted myself to only a few stamp sets that I believe are ‘core’ that most of us would have in our regular craft stash. And also restricted my use of punches, dies and embellishments etc.

However, you can see 4 MORE themes inside my online class as an optional extra. 

The ‘build’ of the projects are identical from one ‘party’ to the next, but the set up and design of the finish is what makes them different.

I have made and photographed 70 projects to showcase these, but please do read more in the Class details for access.

Anyway, I have italicized this section so that if you’re a daily follower of my blog, you know to skip it after the first reading, but if you’re new to me part way through, you know what to expect!

To celebrate with me this week during the Ultimate Party Week, all orders over £45 (before postage) will receive an prettily wrapped packet of Rhinestones in addition to the usual ‘thank you’ gift that I send out. I can take orders for UK, Germany, Holland, Austria and France only. 

Oh, and on THURSDAY I will give you the reason for this week’s colourway…

POOTLES Stampin Up UK Ultimate Party Week.  The Invitation. ELEGANT LADIES THEME

Project 3


You might be wondering why I haven’t put Invitations as the first project. Well, there is no real reason other than when I got the samples laid out on my extra-desk (It’s a long story), that was how they ‘landed’, and I generally like to mix things up a little….!

And besides, I’m kinda hoping that you’re all going to watch the whole series before commencing the makes!

Anyway, moving on…. I’ve worked this card in standard cardstock, BUT, I know that American cardstock is differently sized, so I’ve also given dimensions for you over there too. Aren’t I good?!
