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.

Stampin Up Night Before Christmas (2019 Holiday Catalogue) Memories and More projects by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

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.

Stampin' Up! To a Wild Rose Stamp Set 3 ways

Hello crafty friends.

I'm super excited that the new 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue goes live at 8am AEST (Melbourne time) tomorrow! 

One of the new stamp sets that took my fancy, was the To a Wild Rose stamp set. This is a super versatile stamp set, and I even used the greeting on a scrapbook page. It's a 2 or 3 step stamp, and here I have used all three layers: an outline layer in Early Espresso, the base flower in Rococo Rose (stamped off once), and the final highlights layer in Rococo Rose.  I have used Mossy Meadow for the leaves. The base card here is one of the Magnolia Lane Large Memories and More cards which come in a set of 20 with matching envelopes.

I have used the Birch background stamp on one of the new Nested Label Dies (this is a great new shape to add interest to cards). I love that we have some brass embellishments back (top left corner) - these are the Bird Ballad embellishments and there are a few different designs in the pack. I have also used some of the beautiful scalloped linen ribbon which comes in all the five new in colours.

This next card is much simpler, as I have used just 2 layers for the stamp (and also the centre part of the flower). The base flower is Rococo Rose stamped off once, and the highlight layer is Melon Mambo. I used Early Espresso for the flower centre, and Old Olive for the leaves on this one. I stamped my greeting in Early Espresso and have just added 3 metallic pearls to finish this one off.

Finally I have a scrapbook page for you where I have used the To a Wild Rose stamp set for the title.

I have also used some of the bits and pieces from the beautiful Hugs from Shelli Paper Pumpkin kit (now sold out), and some new Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.

Stampin' Up! Everything Rosy 12x12 Scrapbook Page and Cards

I'm so glad I purchased the limited release  Everything Rosy product medley from Stampin' Up! this month. It wasn't something I needed but given how drawn I was to the paper and rose gold, I thought it would encourage me to get some creating happening. I wasn't wrong! Once I opened that pack, so many ideas came to mind. I find a bunch of coordinating products make creating so quick and easy as well.

Check out Everything Rosy HERE in my online Stampin' Up! store. It's only available until the end of May, but may sell out earlier than that. It's a great collection of products that will keep you crafting for weeks and months. Don't forget to use the May Host Code (7RYV9KJV) when you shop online and I'll send you a small free gift in June.

Everything rosy 3

My first project was a 12x12 scrapbook page which came together SO quickly! I just used a couple of the 6x6 pieces of paper, some of the die cut flowers and some rose gold elements I cut with the dies.

I splattered some of the Rose Gold Shimmer Paint (included in the medley) onto the 12x12 Night of Navy cardstock using an Aquapainter dipped into the paint and flicking on the lid (we were shown this by Shelli at OnStage).

I tucked a journaling card into the right hand side of the photo and used the Circle Tab Punch and a scrap of the Everything Rosy DSP to make a pull tab. The theme of the page is 'Life. Right Now' so my journaling card will just have random things that are happening in my life right now. I have made pages like this at various stages of my life, and I love looking back on them.

Next up I made some cards. So many great labels and die cuts included with the medley, and the labels fit the greetings in the stamp set really well. This one is just a classic combination of Night of Navy, Rose Gold and Whisper White.

You may be able to see I stamped the branch image onto the card in Night of Navy ink to carry through my design a bit. To extend the white floral die cut, I cut it in half horizontally and tucked either side of the greeting.

Next up is a bit more pink in the mix! One of the main reasons I got this medley is to make cards for my many nieces. The colours, flowers and rose gold foiling suit them perfectly.

Isn't the stamped greeting on this card perfect for girls and women?  I really like this font too.

My final card was a super quick thank you card. Again I have used some tone on tone stamping to carry the design through to the base card.

This small label is perfectly sized for the thank you stamp in the bundle. You could also colour your pearls with the Rose Gold Shimmer Paint, although I quite like them as they are too.

Stampin' Up! Botanical Butterfly Saleabration DSP Scrapbook Page

Hello there stamping and memory keeping friends.

Today I have a Stampin' Up! scrapbook page for you using our 2019 Saleabration DSP, Botanical Butterfly. We have started a new monthly scrapbook challenge in my Art with Heart Team forum. The challenges are coordinated by a very talented scrapbooker in our team, Sharen Sutherland. Sharen lives in and runs classes in Mount Gambier West in South Australia. Sharen unfortunately does not have a blog (YET)  but you can contact her HERE if you are interested in attending any of her classes or retreats.

Sharen set this challenge for us to be inspired by or case in some way during February. Here was her layout to get us started. Isn't it great?

Sharen layout

I love Sharen's use of Brusho on her circles, but I didn't feel like getting too messy the day I was scrapbooking, so I used the Botanical Butterfly DSP from Saleabration 2019 instead. This precious photo is of my Mum and I at Christmas 2018 in Perth. It makes me happy that I have scrapbooked it.

I've added in lots of little die cut bits and pieces from the Well Written Framelits set - how cute are those little birds? I have used Sahara Sand cardstock so as not to overwhelm the photo. In between my punched circles I have done some stamping using the bokeh stamp in the Beauty Abounds stamp set.

For my journaling, I used my favourite strip journaling. I find it always very important to include a few words with each memory I scrapbook. The main journaling is beneath the photo, but here's a snippet at the side. When you are setting up your strip journaling, I find it helpful to double space the lines to give you extra cutting space.

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!
