Art With Heart Team Blog Hop: It's Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas

Team Blog Hop Logo 300px wide

Today some of my fabulous Art with Heart Stampin’ Up! team girls have created some amazing Christmas projects to inspire you with the theme, It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! We have tags, gift bags, teacher gift ideas, decorations and many more fun projects to create this holiday season.

I chose some gift wrapping options as my projects for this blog hop. First up I have some cute gift tags I made using the 2" x 2" cards in Project Life Hello December Accessory Kit (on special, along with the matching card kit until 11.50pm AEST Monday November 28th this week for 30% off). I love the colours in these and can't wait to see how great they looked on my Christmas gifts under the tree. To make these, I just cut pieces of  cardstock 6cm x 12cm and scored in the centre. Easy peasy!

The stars and the tree embellishments are included in the accessory pack. I just coloured the tree with a Bronze Sharpie for some added interest (bit obsessed with the copper look this year).

Next up I have a small quick and easy gift idea which fits 3 Lindt chocolate balls in perfectly. These little Christmas favors would be great for the Christmas table, co-workers, social group members and more. You can buy the clear boxes in packs of 16 for just $13.25 (Item 141699 Clear Tiny Treat Boxes) so they are very economical. I just cut three pieces of DSP 9.5cm x 4.5cm and scored in half and placed in the base and up the side on 3 sides (leaving the front side open). I then just attached a belly band of coordinating DSP and made a bow using the Bow Builder Punch.

My final project is a decorated gift box (I recycled one of the boxes I received charms in at OnStage). I love Poinsettias. They remind me of my grandmother. The Festive Flower punch (10% off in this week's Online Extravaganza sale) has all the bits for this flower (and there's a video showing you how to use it on the Stampin' Up! You Tube channel). If you want to stamp the leaf and flower veins, the Reason for the Season stamp set is the coordinating set.

Barcelona Project Life Album using Stampin' Up! Hello Lovely Card Collection & Accessory Pack

Hello friends. Today I have some Memory Keeping for you :)

Earlier this year my family and I were lucky enough to spend a week in Barcelona ahead of the Stampin' Up! Mediterranean Incentive Trip. I have to say Barcelona was never on my bucket list, but wow, what an amazing City! So vibrant and cultural and colourful. I loved it!

I started Stampin' Up! as a Scrapbooker, and memory keeping has been a huge part of my Stampin' Up! journey. I love using stamps in my memory keeping, and the colour coordination Stampin' Up! offers is fabulous for scrapbookers. I also love the pocket scrapbooking trend, so was excited when Stampin' Up! partnered with Becky Higgins to release an official suite of Project Life products.

I have used the Hello Lovely Project Life by Stampin' Up! card collection and accessory pack on this album, along with lots of memorabilia from my trip and a few word / quote stickers (you will notice I use these LOTS in memory keeping and I have a big stash!).

Here's a look at some pages of my album. For the cover page I just did a 12x12" layout and then clipped some travel documents on the back. The quote top left was from one of the pillow gifts we got on the Stampin' Up! trip. I really loved this quote. The cover page is going to cover both the Barcelona portion as well as the cruise portion of my trip, hence why we have the itinerary on the reverse.

Here's some of the pages (I completed 35 pages including the 2 cover pages). I loved all the beautiful plants and flowers in Barcelona. The balconies were beautiful and La Ramblas had so many flower, plant and seed stalls.

I ended up with lots of food pictures as food is a huge part of the journey in Spain!

Stampin' Up! 12x12 Scrapbooking Layouts using the 2016 Holiday Catalogue Products.

Art With Heart Stampin Up Team Australia Claire Daly

Today some of my Art with Heart Stampin’ Up! team girls are sharing some fun and fabulous ideas to inspire you from our brand new Holiday Catalogue available now until 3rd January 2017. Be sure to request your copy of the catalogue today!


You have come to my blog from the very talented Rachel Woollard. Blogs are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

I have decided to show you a double Christmas 12x12" scrapbooking layout to show you how many of the Holiday Catalogue products can also be used in Scrapbooking (double click for a closer look). I LOVE Christmas and love when it's time to decorate the house and tree each year. I like to capture bits and pieces which get added to the collection each year and how the house looks. Just looking at this layout makes me excited for this years Christmas. I can't wait to add the new ornaments I bought in Paris to the tree this year!

Here's a closer look at each page individually. I have used the Presents and Pinecones Designer Series Paper and Washi Tape for my layout, and my base cardstock is the coordinating Mint Macaron from the 2015-17 InColour 12x12 cardstock pack.

Here's a few little details of my layout. I created my own little photo descriptions on my computer as strip journaling. A bit of coiled Gold bakers twine (from the Bakers Twine Trio Pack in the Holiday Catalogue). Love the weight of this twine - perfect for using in this way. That's one of the stamped greetings from the Star of Light stamp set stamped and sitting over the twine. You can also catch a glimpse of one of the die cut Christmas words from the Christmas Greetings thinlits which I have used to embellish my page. I'm a big fan of using words on pages as they really set the scene for the emotion I hope my page conveys,

The greetings in the Star of Light stamp set are perfect for using on a Christmas scrapbooking layout. I stamped them in coordinating Mint Macaron ink and attached using the Presents and Pinecones Washi tape. I have used the Washi tape in lots of other places as well. It coordinates perfectly with the DSP and colours (which is why I LOVE scrapbooking with Stampin' Up! products) and I find it's great to fill spaces and create flow through the layout. This is especially important in double page layouts.

The Starlight Thinlit dies which coordinate with the Star of Light Stamp set make fabulous embellishments. I have cut this one using Copper foil cardstock and a layer of Vellum. The piece in the middle is a White Perfect Accents shape, coloured with a bronze Sharpie. Looks great with the Copper Foil I think.

I'm a fan of using coordinating colour enamel shapes to highlight journaling strips. Love you can get these packs of enamel shapes in our colour groups. I'm always reaching for them.

I did my title on the computer. It's easy to find the RGB codes for our Stampin' Up! colours using a Google search, and that's how I often print my titles for scrapbook pages if I'm not stamping them.

I hope this has given you some ideas for getting some memories down on paper today. Scrapbooking is such a rewarding hobby and I have been doing it for over 14 years now and so grateful to have so many fabulous family memories captured.

Now it's time to move onto the next Art With Heart team member blog. Next up is Judy May. You will love Judy's fabulous creations and attention to detail.
