This month our Scrapbooking Global Theme has been chosen by Julia Quin.
Her theme is …
Heres what I came up with….
I havent scrapbooked for months as my craft room has all been packed up to move so tried to have fun with a little hand drawn numbers. I used a white water colour pencil and and a retired chalk ink pen.
The number stamp set I used is retired too (Labeler Alphabet) but I’m still awaiting my preorder from the New 2022/2023 Annual Catalogue as mine went missing!
I also used the Count on Me stamp set (155647) for the little kiwi.
I have had a blast unpacking my scraproom this past couple of weeks and came across a whole box of Layouts that hadnt been put in albums yet…..and found this Layout which Id forgotten Id done …which inspired this Layout!
It sure made me laugh as my scraproom is always messy but not at the moment!
Ive now put them all in albums. Unpacked everything and about to get my crafting on! Cant wait to create!
Welcome to our January blog hop! This month our theme has been picked by Sherry Roth and her theme is…….
Super excited to see what everyone comes up with! Heres my LO.
For this Layout I decided to concentrate on The Slim Line Card Dies (157965) as my decorative border. These dies are in the new January to June Mini Catalogue. I havent put the photos of a very dear friend of my family on here yet. She passed away recently so this Layout is a rememberance Layout of her.
I used a free Saleabration bundle (with a $220 NZD purchase) for this Layout. Its called Friendly Hello Stamp set and DSP. I fussy cut the flowers and bird out. A bit of computer journalling and its done. Ive kept it simple this time. Im having trouble with lighting today so will try to update it later.
Off we go on the next blog hop ..off to see what Julia Quinn has come up with!

Our theme this month is chosen by Courtenay and her theme is scraplift.
So what is a scraplift? Its a Case or copy of a scrapbooking Layout.
I do not do this very often but was inspired by Marine Wiplier with this gorgeous Layout below.
I was inspired by her use of a punch with using patterned Designer Series Paper!
So heres what I came up with using the Label Me Lovely Punch (151296), the Penned Flowers Dies (155557) and the Hand Penned Designer Series Paper (155499)
Of course mine is a 12×12 Layout as I dont do A4 layouts. Heres a couple of close ups of my Layout.
I also fussy cut out some of the flowers from the paper. I also used White Bakers Twine (155475), Matte Black Dots (154284), Lovely Labels Pick A Punch (152883) and the stamp set I used was Forever Blossoms (151457). I used a retired circle punch as well.

Big Shout out to our new Creative Team Member this month (Julia Quinn!) Lovely to have her onboard.
Have fun checking out all of the scrapbooking LOs this month!
Is the Expressions in Ink Bundle! I just love the dies, stamps and ephemera but these two cards were for two special friends and demos P1 and P2 ..they both got a similar card.
I used the Artistic Dies (155371) which I love and the new Bark 3D embosssing folder (155431). I teamed the both up with the new Ombre Specialty Paper (155784) which I coloured (the leaves) with our Stampin up Blends.
I dont know if you can see but there is a tissue behind the diecut ..thats from the ephemera pack..was just using that up as been using this whole Expressions In Ink bundle (155459) a lot lately for cards and scrapbooking!
The stamp set is Artistically Inked (154542) which is part of the Expressions in Ink Bundle.
Hi and welcome to the ESAD Annual Catalogue Blog Hop! So pleased to hop once again with these lovely ladies as havent done that for awhile.
Today we are showcasing our New Annual Catalogue.
Heres what I came up with using my favourite suite…Expressions In Ink Suite (pages 96 and 97).This lovely suite (155459) includes a stamp/die bundle, Specialty paper and Ephemera pack.
I think it is just gorgeous for scrapbooking, 3D and cards so I have done all three using it for this blog hop.
First off my Scrapbooking Layout.
I wanted this to be simple LO concentrating on showcasing the DSP.
I also used Paper Lattice (155662) (which I just coloured with running my ink pad over it ), What a year Memories and More card pack(155662), Playful Alphabet dies (152706), Tailor Made tags (155563), Round and square brads (155570) and white bakers twine.
Next is my 3D project using the mini paper pumpkin boxes(153069), DSP, stamps/dies and ephemera. Once again I used the Paper Lattice embellishment. I also used Metallic Pearls (146282) and the Tailor Made Tags (155563)
and lastly my card.
I ripped up strips of DSP and adhered them to white card stock and diecut out using the dies. This was leftover from a Layout I did for another blog hop this past week.
Instead of cutting it out like above, I just ran this through a couple of times to get the outside cut and then diecut it again in Gold foil (132622)
I adhered the gold over the top and glued back in any pieces already out with tombow or fine tip glue.
I also used bakers twine (155475), Bark 3D Embossing folder (155431) and the bling is from the ephemera pack.
I hope you have enjoyed my projects!
Off now to the next participant in our blog hop…the lovely Kelly Kent!
This month it is my theme and Ive chosen DIY Backgrounds…lots of fun LOs to be made Im hoping! So here is my Layout!
I am still to put photos on this Layout as currently at home sick with the flu and dont want to go out!
Here is the photos of Jolene and will be doing a pocket page next with all of her naughty antics!
So how did I do this?
I cut my 12×12 White Cardstock to 10 x10 inches and blended over using Pale Papaya, Pear Pizazz and Evening Evergreen. I stamped with Black stazon the images from the Artistically Inked Stamp set. Then I used the Plenty of Patterns Masks (155553) and Matte Embossing Paste for some texture. I still have a stash of Black 12×12 Cardstock (CS) but if you dont you could make the central panel A4 size.
My fave new embellishments are the Paper Latice (155697) and the Expressions in Ink Ephemera pack (155465)
I inked up the lattice with Black stazon and cut it like shown. I adhered the small strips to the side of my White CS
I adhered this central panel to a 11 1/2 square of White CS and that was matted onto the 12 x12 Black CS. Tip…I only used one 12×12 Black CS and cut out the central part of it to use as the matting for the central panel. I do this with most of my Layouts to cut down on bulk and wastage.
Next I tore strips of the beautuful Expressions of Ink Specialty DSP (155464) and adhered them to some White CS and Diecut the Artistic Dies (155371) and Diecut this out. You could just diecut out of the DSP if you want to skip that step?
I cut a 3×6 Piece of the DSP and adhered all of the Ephemera pieces (including a tissue that comes in the ephemera pack), leftover lattice and wrapped around some gold Simply elegant trim (155766) as seen below. The diecut is adhered to the title area (which is up on dimensionals) and not adhered to the Black photo mats so I can slip my photos in later.
I stamped the hello onto a scrap of Linen Specialty DSP (155681) and blended with Pale Papaya.
I still have to journal as well but that will happen mainly on my pocket page when Ive done that!
So thats it…and off we go to the next Blog in our Blog Hop …Nina!

This month Design Team Member Sara Levin has given us this theme challenge.
I actually struggle to cut photos up so this was a real challenge for me.
Heres what I came up with. I have to laugh at myself as even though I cut up lots and lots of circles I arranged them in a square! Too Funny!
Another LO about our Pup who we got as a rehome from the pound at 4 weeks old.
I used some old and current circle dies (151770). The gorgeous Fine Art Floral DSP (154558) and Dandy Laser cut Paper (154300) which are in the January- June Mini Catalogue. I also used the Always Dies (154307) (Mini) and the Playful Alphabet Dies (152706) (Annual). The Enamel dots are the current Color ones (152480) (Annual)
So thats it from me.. please click on the Next button to go to the next person on the blog hop. The lovely Sharni Haines!
I have just had a fabulous stampcamp craft retreat this past weekend and I managed to have a play with this new suite.
This suite is available for us demonstrators last month and will be available for sale starting March 2 for customers.
Here is a teaser for what Ive come with using this suite.
First off a scrapbooking layout.
..and a set of cards I made for the stampcamps service project. All of the cards are going to the Burns Unit in Auckland Nz. The burns units Ive been involved with (3 over the 30 odd years) I have had a relationship with as Ive had to take blood off them for testing. It is extremely challenging to get blood of burns patients and they normally have ports in but they often fail or get bugs so my profession as a phlebotomist comes into play then.
I really enjoyed using this suite and the 6×6 DSP pack is to die for IMO!
This suite is now available for purchase! Contact me today if you would like to purchase and live in New Zealand.
