This week I have been playing with the Night Before Christmas Memories and More card pack, and the coordinating cards and envelopes. These two products together make for some very quick and easy cards, and the card pack is also great for pocket scrapbooking.

Here's a closer look at the products I am playing with this week. Here is the card pack.

Memories nd More

The coordinating cards and envelope pack is perfectly sized to fit the cards, and is patterned  if you want to use a smaller card.

Memories and More 2

I made three quick Christmas cards, and dressed them up a little with a few extra embellishments.

For this first card I added a copper star element, some red rhinestones on the tree and a stamped greeting from Itty Bitty Christmas.

For my second card I added some of the coordinating Night Before Christmas DSP, a Toile Tiding glitter enamel dot, and some red rhinestones. The Old Olice piece at the top and bottom of the 3x4 card, is from a piece of cardstock punched with the Everyday Label Punch.

For the final card, I have trimmed down one of the bigger Memories and More cards so I could add some red glimmer paper behind it for a bit more sparkle. I also added some of the Holiday Rhinestones to the stars on the card.

Finally I used some of the cards in a double-sided 6x8 pocket scrapbooking page.

A tip for keeping photos in place in the top loading pocket pages. I cut a strip from one of the coordinating cards and made banner ends in it. I then folded this over the top of the top pocket and adhered it each side. I decorated it with an embellishment sticker from the kit and a couple of rhinestones. This keeps the top photos from falling out of the pockets.

Week 26 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Lovely Lipstick

Colour Creations 300

Lovely Lipstick

This week the Colour Creations girls on the Art With Heart team are playing with Lovely Lipstick. This is such a bright happy colour, and one of our 2018-20 InColours. I ha lots of fun playing with this colour this week, and I have 3 projects for you.

My first project is a 12x12" scrapbook page of the leaders in my team at our Centre Stage leaders dinner and training a couple of weeks ago. The big 30 was actually part of our table decoration and the lovely postcard at the top came from the hotel I was staying at. I love incorporating memorabilia like this into my pages. I have incorporated Lovely Lipstick, by using several of the 'coming soon' Happiness Blooms Memories & More cards, which will be available in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue. I love the bright colours and bold patterns in this card set and it's bright colour combination.

My second project again features cards from the Happiness Blooms Memories and More card pack, as well as the coordinating cards and envelopes (also coming in the Occasions Catalogue). I just cut three strips from two different cards (each strip was 10cm x 5cm) and arranged them on the card front. You can't see it in the photo, but the top and bottom panel are from one of the specialty cards so it has subtle texture as well. My greeting was from Butterfly Gala, a new stamp set coming soon. I embossed it in white onto Night of Navy cardstock, and cut it out with the Lovely Label punch.

My final project, is a 6x8 pocket scrapbooking page. I used the Happiness Blooms Memories and More card pack here too. This was such a happy moment from Convention. Jennifer Frost (left) and Rochelle Blok (right) are talented stampers and both such lovely kind and giving people. I had chatted to Rochelle a little in the past, as we have a mutual friend. Jennifer and I often comment on each others work on Instagram and I really admire her giving nature (and her amazing talent). Believe it or not I am little shy when it comes to meeting new people, but Jennifer came and found me at OnStage and it turns out she was feeling the same. Such a lovely moment which needed a story and a page!

Heart of Christmas Week 10 - Christmas creations bought to you by the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! Team

Hello friends, welcome to week 10 of Heart of Christmas bought to you by the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! team in Australia. I hope our weekly blog hop is giving you some inspiration to get some Christmas cards happening in the craft room.

This week I have had a play with the Santa's Workshop Memories and More cards. This was super simple to make as I combined it with the Real Red Memories and More notecards and envelopes which are perfectly sized for the Memories and More cards.

It was a super simple card to make.I used two of the specialty textured card. One was used as the background layer and the other was used to die-cut the word JOY which was then attached to the other layer with Dimensionals. The holly and elf were die cut stickers which came in the pack, so I just attached them with Dimensionals too. Super easy.

Quick and simple cards with Big Plans Memories and More Card Pack

Want some quick and easy ideas for cards? Today's cards literally took me 15-20 minutes from start to finish for all 3 cards!

The Big Plans card pack was one of the things which really caught my eye at the Demonstrator launch of the 2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue in Sydney in April. I think it was a combination of the colour combination and the cute design. Most people think these are just for pocket scrapbooking, but WOW do we have a surprise for you!

Our Memories and More packs have had a makeover, and with the cardstock weight stickers now included, they are as equally suited to card making as they are to memory keeping. I tend to mix it up and do both. This card kit also coordinates with our Big Plans Planner Kit. The colours are Calypso Coral, Gray Granite, Pineapple Punch and Whisper White.

Here's a closer look at the BIG PLANS Memories and More card pack. The four sheets in the upper right hand corner are cardstock weight stickers.

The other very cool thing, is that this year we have also introduced note cards and envelope packs in 2 sizes which are PERFECTLY sized to use with these cards (which makes them super quick and easy to create cards with). As you can see in the cards below, just add a card to the card base, and you have a perfect fit with a slight mat around the outside.

For this card, I have used one of the 6x4" cards for the first layer, and then cut 2 pieces from smaller cards for the other layers (the greeting was already printed on the card). Then I just added some rhinestone jewels and silver and white bakers twine (all the products I have used are available in my online store and are linked to at the end of my post). See how perfectly the cards fit the new Memories and More note cards and envelopes (this is the large pack).

For my second card, I have just used one 6x4" card onto one of the base cards, and used a greeting and washi stickers from the sticker sheets. All I needed to add was some rhinestone jewels.

For my final card, I have just used one of the 6x4" quote cards and added that to a base card. All I needed to finish this card was some of the cardstock weight stickers and rhinestone jewels.

Art with Heart Team Stampin Up Heart of Christmas 2017: Week 14 with Merry Little Christmas Memories and More Card Pack

Hello  crafty friends. It's time for Heart of Christmas Week 14! I hope your Christmas card stash is starting to take shape as much as mine :) This weekly Christmas card blogging commitment has really helped with my motivation. The fabulous new Holiday Catalogue starts selling on Friday 1st September too, so you will be able to get your hands on the fabulous new Christmas products.

Carrying on from the team blog hop last week, I have had more of a play with the Merry Little Christmas Memories and More card pack. These are multipurpose cards which can be used for pocket style scrapbooking, traditional scrapbooking or even made into cards. Last week I used them in scrapbooking and one card, and today I have made 3 more Christmas cards using cards from the pack.

For this card I have used one of the 3x4 cards, with one of the 6x4 overlays (included in the pack). My card base is Tranquil Tide, and the base paper Merry Music Designer Series Paper (also in the Holiday Catalogue).

MMcard 1

Extra embellishments added to the card were some glimmer paper, some adhesive Rhinestone jewels and the beautiful 7/8" striped ribbon from the Holiday Catalogue.

Mmcard1a

For this card I have just used one of the black and white 3x4" cards, and teamed it with some Merry Music Designer Series Paper and Berry Burst cardstock. My embellishments this time are coordinating Berry Burst ribbon (from the Annual Catalogue), silver mini sequin trim, silver metallic thread and one of the new Year of Cheer embellishments from the Holiday Catalogue.

Mmcard 2

For my last card I have used another of the 3x4" cards, and used some of the cardstock stickers with Rhinestone jewels as the embellishment. My base cardstock is Cherry Cobbler and the Olive Olive paper is from the Colour Theory Designer Series Paper stack. At the base of the card I have embellished with a cardstock strip cut using the Decorative Ribbon border punch.
