Decorated Journal using Stampin' Up! Hello Life and SB93 sketch

I LOVE notebooks and journals, I have a zillion of them :) I especially love giving them a personal touch which is what I have done with todays Stamping and Blogging sketch, SB93. Love this awesome quote stamp in the Stampin' Up! Set Hello Life in the 2015 Occasions Catalogue. I think it's perfect for a DIY/handmade journal, don't you?

Stampin Up Hello Life DIY Handmade journal using chalkboard paper by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia for SB93

For the background stamping, I just very randomly inked my background stamp with Crumb cake ink and applied uneven pressure as well. Love the haphazard effect it gave, as it contrasted nicely with the brighter colours. The little flag pieces are actually bits from the Saleabration Project Life mini cards. You can check out all the products I have used at the bottom of the post.

Here is the sketch we had to work with this week. Sandi has done such a fabulous job with our sketches.

Project Life Travel Album for Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team's monthly blog hop.

Hello there. Today I'd like to showcase some of the awesome stamping talent I have in my team with a blog hop among some of my direct team member's blogs.

Blog hop start

Today we focus on the new Occasions Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Catalogue and also Sale-a-bration! If you place with myself or any of the girls on the blog hop during Sale-a-bration, you can choose a free item with every $90 you spend in one transaction. There are lots of fabulous free items to choose from (ask me for a brochure and an Occasions Catalogue) and the promotion goes right through until 31st March.

Better still, become part of our awesome fun, friendly and supportive Art With Heart team. We have a really large team Australia wide that has been around since Stampin’ Up! came to Australia. We have a very active team forum and also have in person stamp days, challenges, card swaps, product shares and more. When you join during Sale-a-bration, you get to choose whatever you like from our catalogues, but pay just $169 for $235 worth of product (that’s a huge discount!) but also you get to choose between two free product options. It’s quick and easy to join online too. Ask me how!

Now let’s get into showing you what you can make with the great new products in the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogues. You have come to my blog from the clever Kathryn Ruddick. 

I thought I would focus on the fabulous Project Life products available in the Occassions Catalogue called 'Let's Get Away', which as the name implies, re perfect for travel albums or holiday snaps. Here's a pic of each of each of the products (link to the actual products in my online store using the product links at the bottom of my post).

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Basics for Stamping and Blogging SB91

Hello lovely stampers. Today I have a vintage themed card using a very popular set from the Stampin' Up! Australia Occasions Catalogue called Butterfly Basics. The sketch I used to create the card is from Stamping and Blogging SB91.

SB91

Vintage is my FAVOURITE stamping style, and the Typeset DSP I have used is my favourite DSP in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. It's ultra lightweight and feels just like it came from a vintage book. You get 24 sheets in a pack, so it's GREAT value! My flower is stamped from Butterfly Basics, and coloured with a blender pen and ink (Strawberry Slush, Rose Red and Pear Pizazz) and I've stamped on the DSP as well using Crumb Cake ink. Our new Sahara Sand lace trim, linen thread and an Antique Brad complete the card. You can link to any of these products in my online store below.

Here is the sketch we had to work with this week. I used different patterned sheets of the vintage paper to create the design.

Stampin' Up! Indescribable Gift for SB90

Hello. Today I have a little colouring for you using a new set from the Stampin' Up! Australia Occasions catalogue, called Indescribable Gift. It's a lovely set to colour, and although it comes as part of an Easter set, I have turned mine into a birthday card. The sketch is from SB90, from Stamping and Blogging.

 

SB90 Card

 

I've kept the card super simple, because I wanted the floral panel (which I coloured with blender pens and ink from the inside of the lid of my Blushing Bride, Rose Red, Pear Pizazz and Early Espresso ink pads) to be the star. All I did on the Early Espresso card was to stamp some of the same image in the Early Espresso ink, and the same on the Crumb Cake small piece.

Here is the sketch we had to work with this week.
