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!

'I am' - a traditional scrapbooking layout using (mostly) Stampin' Up! products.

Lately, scrapbooking has been loudly calling me again. I dabble / have dabbled in pocket pages, but my heart belongs to traditional 12 x 12 pages.  

My eldest son snapped this photo of me earlier in the year, and it seemed the perfect photo to get a little grungy with inks and textures. 

 

Stampin' Up! traditional layout using texture paste, Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Here's the process (I should have used Gesso to seal the page which would have prevented the warping. I was out, so I went head, but will do that next time. It's flattened out fine now though). Bolded words refer to products which are linked to my online store at the end of the page.

  • My base cardstock is Smoky Slate 12x12 Stampin' Up! cardstock.. This one must have been left over from a couple of years ago as it is textured. We have the smooth now which would be fine to use too.
  • I pencilled in approximately where I wanted my picture to go, and then used Silver Embossing Paste with the Palette Knives and brick mask in the Pattern Party Decorative masks. I wasn't particularly worried to get it flat and didn't even fully cover the mask, as I wanted a grungy, random effect with the bricks.
  • I left that to completely dry, and then randomly applied Jet Black Stazon ink direct from the ink pad to dirty the brick texture up a bit.
  • My 5x7" photo is on a mat of Berry Burst A4 cardstock. I've used some of the Pick a Pattern Washi Tape (love the versatility of varying widths of tape in this 5 roll set) to frame the picture at the top and bottom.
  • I've stamped some of the great textures in Timeless Textures stamp set in various spots on my page (I used Memento Black stamped off once). This set is really versatile for scraobooking. Other embellishments  are some Mint Macaron brads (from the Basics Brads set) and Berry Burst punched arrowheads from a retired punch.
  • My title was made using some letters in my stash, as I really wanted to pick up the blue in the photo and they were perfect.

Before I get onto my journaling, here are some close ups.

Then this one (which makes me want to jump into the screen and push that wash tape down properly!).

Here's a closer look at the Timeless Textures stamp set and the Pattern Party Decorative Masks.

This all about me page was just about random journalling about who I am, right now. That's not a number or a measurement. Everyone needs to do this kind of journaling. It's so good for the soul. Even if it's just scribbled onto the back of a cafe napkin, just for your eyes. I think all about me pages are one of my favourite types of pages. I used the very cool Swirly Frames stamo set (PERFECT for scrapbooking and great for cards too) for my circular journaling piece. My actual journaling was a compination of my own handwriting (using the Journalling Pens), with the occasional stamped (in Memento Black) word from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set.

I hope you have enjoyed this little peek into my scrapbooking process and favourite products. Hope you get to record some memories of your own soon.

See you back here again tomorrow night,

Claire

Traditional 12x12 Stampin Up Layout using Urban Underground Designer Series Paper Pack

Remember when I used to scrapbook. Me too! I love it and miss it. So I did a 12x12 page, my favourite kind of Scrapbooking. The colours in this gorgeous Urban Underground Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!'s 2017 Occasions Catalogue are perfect for black and white photos. This photo of our new rescue cat Teddy isn't technically black and white, but close enough due to his colouring.

This was a super simple layout! Just a 5x7 photo, a few strips of the coordinated paper nd a journaling block. I did the small 'the story of' on my typewriter. The letters were from my scrapbook stash. The Stampin' Up! colours in this awesome Urban Underground paper are Basic Black, Basic Gray, Delightful Dijon, Silver and Whisper White.

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.
