Hello and Thank you.
I am so excited to be here today. although I must admit… this is certainly a different view for me, compared to the past 10 years of SU events I have attended. Usually… I’m the one watching, as a local demonstrator friend presents on stage… thinking: WOW! I wish I could do that, But at the same time… thank goodness it’s not me!
You see, I started as hobby demonstrator and I was always in aw of my friends making a business of their talents. but of course, I never thought I could do it. Well… skip ahead a few years, add a few children and a change in employment and here I am today making a business with SU. Although I’m still learning, one thing that remains true and is that I love inspiring others and I can’t wait to show you some product that is definitely going to inspire you and your customers.
Today I am showing the Love Blossom Suite. This suite
was designed to extend beyond the Valentine’s season. It offers us a solution for Valentine’s Day; but it also includes enough soft, flowery, feminine imagery that we’ll be able to use it for the whole occasions sales period. That means we can promote it to our customers even if they don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day—and after Valentine’s Day is over. The images are good for cards, tags, and gift and treat packaging. Valentine’s is a great way to kick off your first quarter events. Your customers will love being able to get ahead on their Valentine’s projects.
first up is the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack:
It is Available for the Product Purchase Premiere
It is 6”inches x 6” inches
and contains 48 sheets: 4 each of 12 double-sided designs. this will ensure that our customers have lots of designs to choose from.
The one thing I love about this pack is that One side has Valentine-specific imagery while the other side doesn’t, making it work well for Valentine’s but also Mother’s Day, baby, & bridal showers, birthday, sympathy, and all-occasion.
Another thing, is that The Valentine’s imagery is subtle, so you can use it for Valentines projects galore— but then continue using it for other kinds of projects.
To cooridnate with the Love blossom DSP is the Love Blossoms Cardstock Pack:
it also Available for the Product Purchase Premiere
it contains 24 sheets: 8 sheets of Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake,
and Rose Red.
These colours are perfect for card making and your customers will love being able to buy colors that coordinate so well with the collection.
Next is the Bloomin’ Love Stamp Set:
this is Also Available for the Product Purchase Premiere
I love how Pretty, and sophisticated the artwork is in this set.
It has two-step stamps and is Photopolymer, which makes it easy to line up those images.
It has a Mix of soft flowers and flourishes that will look good on feminine cards
Another thing I love about this stamp set is the Variety of greetings They aren’t limited to just one recipient. The “Love You” greeting and “Friend” greeting give this stamp set a lot of versatility making it easy for our customers to customize their cards
This Stamp set is also designed to pair with the Bloomin’ heart Thinlit Die! and also coordinates with the Large Number Framelits found on Page 11
and here it is! the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Dies
which is also Available for Product Purchase Premiere…
I Love how intricate and detailed this die is. It’s perfect for making those special cards and WOW projects.
With this stamp and die bundle, you’re going to use it a little differently then our traditional bundles, with this bundle,You’ll die cut the pieces first, and then stamp. but remember the stamp set is photopolymer so you’ll be able to see through it for easier alignment.
Another great feature of this die set is that it also comes with 2 little flower thinlets . These allow you to layer on top of the large heart die and they also coordinate with the small flower stamps in the set. Just imagine those small dimensional flowers you’re going to make.
Now with this die set, You will need to use it with the Precision Base Plate. Our conventional cutting plates have too much give and will not work with this die. the die is so intricate and detailed that it needs the rigidness provided by the precision base plate to cut.
Now every project needs a little bling and the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper: is perfect for this collection!
it is Available for Product Purchase Premiere!
is 12” inches x 12” inches and comes in 2 sheets
I love our glimmer paper as it is All the glitz,
but with none of the hassle or mess
One Fun tip:is When cutting Glimmer Paper with our thinlits, place the die blade on the back of Glimmer Paper instead of the glimmer side. and yes! it works with the heart die!
Now, last but not least the we have the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit:
This is Available for Product Purchase Premiere and you are going to love the variety of beautiful, embellishments—most of which you can only buy in this kit
I mean What is better then pre tied bows and Gold foil heart doilies!
Embellishment kits are wonderful for our customers because they offer a variety of fun little goodies to put on projects. You get a little of everything!
These are fun for demonstrators to use at events as well, because we can talk about more products that our customers might need—like our different adhesives or our other awesome embellishments.
Now… did you look at the heart die and groan a little, because of all the little pieces you're going to have to poke out? Well have no fear… The die Brush is here!!! This new tool is going to be a must have on yours and your customers list!
How it works, is after cutting, You’re going to take your die and lay it face down on the foam mat which is included. You’re then going to run the brush all over the back of your die. This is going to poke out your die cut and all of the little bits and pieces. They’ll remain on the foam pad, making it easy to dump the scraps into the garbage in one small sweep.
On a side note… If you have small children, buy 2 of these because this tool will become their new favourite toy.
for those of you who know me, majority of my business is done on-line via social media. I use a blog, Facebook and Pinterest and I’m really excited to promote this suite in my business.
When I go to promote this suite, on-line. I’ll be emphasizing how versatile this set can be. Not just for Valentines but beyond that.
One way I’ll do this is by creating 2 cards using the Love blossom DSP and Bloomin’ love stamp set. They will be almost identical. but for 2 totally different themes and recipients . I’ll use a variety of DSP pieces from the stack on each card to show just how versatile the pack is. I’ll post it on my blog with full description and also pin it to pinterest using it’s set name, a description and even a hash tag making it easier to find. Not all people are blog hoppers and even I, myself search via pinterest.
I’ll take pictures of me using the product and post them to my FB business page. saying things such as “ Just Crafting this Afternoon… Look how cute and handy these little pre-tied bows are: from the Love blossom embellishment kits! Check them out! and provide a link to my on-line store.
I’m also looking forward to posting and talking about the new die Brush as this is going to be a great and affordable up-sale. “Oh I see you have the Bloomin’ Heart die on your order. Did you see our New Die Brush? It helps remove your cardstock and all the little bits and pieces quick and easy! No more popping them out every where. simply roll and dump them into the garbage.
I’m also excited because It’s going to help bring back some of my older customers. the Ones that might not of ordered in a while, thinking they have it all.
I’m going to post a picture or video using the new brush and show them how they NEED to add this brush to their list of must have tools. at the same time making sure they’ve seen the new occasions catalogue
Along with my on-line presence, each month I also do a class at a local group home. My group home ladies are disable and each one has a support work who comes and helps them craft. I do most of the prep for them to help save time. but for the Blooming heart die, I’ll bring my big shot and the blushing bride glimmer paper for them to try. They are going to be ecstatic to see what they can actually do. People love hands on and seeing that they can easily make something so beautiful and the support workers will love it even more because they can easily help their patients be creative.
Make & Take
Now Let me show you the Love Blossom make-n-take.
Today You are going to have the fun of cutting out this beautiful heart die for yourself!
<Show how to cut out heart>
To start we need to make up our big shot sandwich.
- if you haven’t use the precision Base plate before, in normal circumstance this is how your sandwich will go: you have your multi purpose platform on tab 2 - the precision base plate - your paper - The die and then a regular cutting pad.
Although SU has been telling you not to use your Precision Base Plate with your magnetic platform in this case we are going to use the two together. Reason being, this is the most intricate die that SU has ever introduced and when using it with DSP it needs a little extra firmness to cut cleanly. With cardstock or any other paper, other than DSP, it is still recommended that you use your Multi-Purpose Platform.
<run through Big Shot>
To ensure that your die cuts all the way through, run the die through your Big Shot at least twice: forward and then back. If your big shot is older and very well used, you may need to run it through again.
<Show how to use the die brush>
Next we are going to drive the brush all over the back.
When removing DSP from this thinlet with the Dies Brush, you’ll need to have a lighter touch to avoid tearing.With cardstock or glimmer paper you can be a little rougher.
Next you're going to stamp the coordinating flower images onto the cut out. The stamps and tiny flower thinlets have arrows on them that will make alignment quicker - when using together. However they do not indicate the correct the direction for the large heart die.
Well I hope you love the Love Blossom suite as much as I do. Make sure to Show your customers this suite and all the fun things they can do with these products—and don’t forget to promote it past Valentine’s Day!
