esad-favourites

My Favourite items? Well there are many in this catalogue but I’ve decided just to pick one stamp set…The Jolly Friends stamp set and I picked it, because, it had a punch with it and I  could make other things with it non Christmas (Check my blog below for other cards Ive done) Today Im going whole hog Christmas …

jolly-friends

My first project is one I’ve done for some Christmas markets locally and also for my monthly team get together in the sunny Bay Of Plenty in New Zealand. 8 tags (all the same). I used Whisper White and coloured in the beard with a blender pen. I stamped on Crumb Cake cardstock and they were all decorated up with the Tiny Treat Boxes. I love these! Just make sure you take the protective coating off the boxes.

The next project was simply just for a market. I found some Santa Italian chocolates at my local supermarket and hey quick and was easy to do and kids just adored them! I used the mica flakes on the hat and the cute bells on them too.

This inspired a card which I did in addition to my card class this week ….and in similar style. An Easel card using the new Stitched Shapes Framelits These framelits are currently on back order as they have been so popular! They will be going into the next Annual Catalogue but once the next shipment arrives you can order these.

My next project is a stamp a stack card…I altered the sentiment from the Merry Mice Stamp set for this.(moose instead of mouse)  My stamp a stacks are designed to make 20 cards in a few hours …4 of each design. I decided not to put the trim on the hat to make it a bit quicker but having second thoughts on that so will be stamping and punching the trims for my own Christmas cards.

So I hope you have enjoyed my projects and I would love comments!

MKxPLSU September Blog Share

12654617_1217563871607105_1504381475554147677_nHi and welcome to our latest blog share for the Memory Keeping Project Life SU Design team. If you arent already a member of this facebook group, then join our lovely page of Memory Keeping Project Life style.

This month is anything goes …so I pulled out my new favourite..Hello Lovely Kit and had a play..

Now these photos have been sitting around for well over a year …in fact nearly two years. I was intending on making a mini album with them so I had them printed as two ups (ie 2 2×3″ photos on a 4×6″ photo).

So rather than reprinting some as full 4×6″ photos I just used the two ups in the 4×6″ pockets. It makes it a very busy page but is a great way to showcase an event.

I simply had a lot of photos needing to go into this recording of an event so PL came to the rescue!

So I have a market this weekend so while I was making these to sell..IMG_6187-002

And using the new Cookie Cutter Halloween set, I wondered about making the vampire into a Dad for Fathers Day! (It’s Fathers Day here today in New Zealand) I combined it with the Jolly Friends stamp set by using the elf and the scarf out of this set. 142255GIMG_6184-002IMG_6189-002IMG_6190-001

The sentiment is from the Annual Catalogue (Thoughtful banners and matching punch) . The techniques used were weathered distress and baby wipe and using From land to sea stamp set.

So off we go to the wonderfully kind soul of Monique Fielder!

MKPLSU Blog share-Hello Lovely PL Kit

12654617_1217563871607105_1504381475554147677_n

 

Yes we are back this month for our monthly blog share using the New Hello Lovely Pl collection and Accessory kit. The new addition to the accessory kit is a set of stamps with the kit!

Here’s my pages of my Corgi Maggie!  .. I stamped ‘Hello Lovely’ and ‘life’ on this page. I cut down a few of the cards for some layers and corner rounded some and not others. I love to edge my photos and card with black ink.

There are a few new accessories I liked in this kit: The printed acetate, the chipboard flowers (I coloured these in but the look equably fab just as is I think!) and the little diecuts in the 2×2 cards are cute!

 

IMG_5346-001.JPG

I kept this page pretty simple ..its all about the photos and the journalling on this one!

ESAD New Catalogue Blog hop

2016-17 Annual Catalogue Blog Hop Header

I’m participating in a ESAD blog hop today and we are showcasing new products from the 2016/2017 Annual Catalogue.

2016-17 Annual Catalogue Blog Hop ESAD Info

 

You may have come from the previous blog or you are starting here on my blog but if you get lost..Check out the list at the bottom of my post.

I came up with 3 cards using 4 things, The Sunshine Wishes Thinlits (141489), New Delicate White Doilies (141701) Blooms and Wishes Stamp set (141784) and the Blooms & Bliss DSP (141660)

The DSP (designer series paper) has a gorgeous range of colours but I stuck with the Mint Macaron, Island Indigo and Sahara Sand papers.I particularly love to make DSP cards…we all love to horde paper right?

The first card I used fussy cutting and the rock n roll technique. The second card, I used used a diecut as a stencil and sponged over. Finally, on the third card, I altered the doily using my mint Macaron and Island Indigo sponges to give it that antique look and I did a bit of sponging.

Thanks for visiting and I hope I inspired you to put this stamp set and paper on your wishlist.

Next stop of the blog hop is Rebecca Crisp with some Badges and Banners stamp set ideas!

This month we as a Design Team, are showcasing all of the retiring Project Life kits out of the 2015/2016 Annual Catalogue.

I decided to use Lets Get Away Collection as my focus this month. This is a travel themed Collection but one of the most fave things I like to do is use these collections for a different theme..just shows you how versatile these collection kits can be!

My pages are about my Stampin’ Up! team and how much fun I have with these girls at camps and events. Usually our monthly team meeting has some fun moments always too!

IMG_4914-002IMG_4923-001.JPG

I love these 6×12 pockets which thankfully are going through as the Variety Pack 2 is my favourite Pocket page pack! I just made a slit in the side of the pocket so I could add in the centrestage ribbon!

Stampin” Up! Spoil us rotten at Onstage (and Centre Stage)! IMG_4915-001
