Memory Keeping Layout with Tea Room Specialty DSP

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a double spread layout of some 12″ x 12″ scrapbook pages using the pretty Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper.

This first page fits one photo, 6″ x 4″ on the green mat. I love all the die cut embellishments around the page. The butterfly, flowers and the pretty delicate lace edging above and below where the photo will sit. It all coordinates so well.

Here’s the second page of the double layout with some more pretty embellishments and this one has 3 spaces for 3″ x 3″ photos. I love the celebrate thinlit and the stitched Labels framelit for added embellishments.

Happy 5 Year Stampiversary to me!

5th anniversary celebration.png

Dear Crafters,

Today is my 5 year anniversary with Stampin’ Up! Wow, who would have thought that I would still be a demonstrator all this time?!! Certainly not me, but here I am, loving these amazing products as much as ever!

Why do I love being a Stampin’ Up demonstrator!? Here are a few reasons why:

  • the high quality of the products
  • everything coordinates; cardstock, accessories, stamps and dies. No more taking my projects to the stores to find a ribbon that matches the colours in my project!
  • Being a demonstrator, I save a minimum of 20% on every order
  • Being able to purchase products before they are released to the general public
  • Attending live events and trying new products before everyone else
  • I can order from the comfort of my home and have it delivered to my door!
  • part of the largest team in Australia, Art with Heart, who are so supportive, helpful and encouraging
  • the amazing friends I have made and continue to meet within our team and at live events
  • building a beautiful team, called Craftalicious, who I  share amazing times with
  • and most of all, sharing my love of craft with others

Well, that’s enough about me and my amazing journey so far. I hope I can continue to share it with you, or better still, join my team and it may just be the start of a whole new life for you too!

I want to share a couple of the Easter Treat Boxes that I’ve made for the kids!

Celebrate with Cake Soiree

Dear Crafters,

Today I share the 3rd card we made at my class last Saturday using the Cake Soiree Bundle & Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper. Because we had some late cancellations, we ended up with a smaller class, so for this final card, I allowed the ladies to choose their own Designer Paper pattern and colours. I made this first card and then let them get their creativity on!!!!

and here are the class attendees cards:

this first one was made with an engagement in mind (the DSP is the retired, Bundle of Love Specialty DSP)

this one is predominantly Calypso Coral

The ladies were enjoying colouring using the Blender Pens and ink pads, where I showed them how you can get some great shading and depth with the variation of colour, by adding more when needed.

Lots of Lavender during Saleabration

Dear Crafters,

Today I share the pretty, Lots of Lavender stamp set which can be earned free with any $90+ order.

My card base is Sweet Sugarplum, embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Each of the leaves has then been highlighted with the Wink of Stella.

Lots of Lavender by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator, Australia #Saleabration2018

The lavender image is stamped with Black Memento ink and coloured with the Stampin’ Blenders markers. I must say, I’m not overly happy with my fussy cutting and nearly pulled it all apart to start again 😦

I love Celebrate You thinlits dies too, especially cut in the silver foil. These dies are also a Sale-a-bration free product with a $180 order. If you place a $270 order, you can get both the thinlits dies and the Lots of Lavender stamp set for FREE.

Stampin Ups Lots of Lavender, Amazing You, Celebrate you thinlits dies, Delightful Daisy DSP by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Australia #Occasions2018 #Saleabration2018

This Lavender stamp set is going to get lots of use; not only for birthday cards, but also for Sympathy, Mother’s Day, Thinking of You and I have lots of ideas to incorporate it into some traditional scrapbook pages.

I have added some of the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper from the Annual catalogue, which goes perfectly with this set. I mean, who doesn’t love flowers and especially during the Aussie summer.

Celebrate the New Year with colour!

Dear Crafters,

Happy New Year!  I hope that 2018 brings you much joy, love, health and happiness.

Today’s card is a fun card to celebrate the New Year, with some Birthday Ribbon bows, using the new Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set available in the Occasions catalogue starting in 2 days time!

Celebrate with Picture Perfect Birthday, Stampin' Up! by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia DIY

I have used some pretty bright colours for this card; Peekaboo Peach, Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Old Olive, Pool Party & Tempting Turquoise.

This is a photopolymer stamp set, so it is quite easy to line up the two-step stamping for the bows. Check out those gorgeous Tutti-fruitti Adhesive-backed Sequins too, they will also be available and I’m sure they will be a huge hit when the catalogue goes live. These were one of the first embellishments I added to my order.

The fringing on the edges of the panel where the sentiment is, was created by many little paper snips along the edges of the Flirty Flamingo paper. Doesn’t it look cool?!!!

Celebrate with Picture Perfect Birthday, Stampin' Up! by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia, DIY

Don’t look too closely at the Old Olive stamping… I recently reinked my stamp pad and it was a little too juicy!!!

The “celebrate” sentiment was only part of a stamp in the set, so I actually used a Tempting Turquoise Stampin’ Write Marker to ink up just that one word before stamping!

Congratulations: In the City

Hello friends,

Today I take you back to the Annual catalogue and one of the Hostess stamp sets, In the City!

I’ve had this in my collection for a little while and it has never been inked up, so I thought it was time to get it out and give it some love. I think with 60 stamps in the set, it scared me a little, but wow, it was so quick and easy to use. I will definitely be giving it some more love over the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

In the City Stamp Set (60 stamps!)

Stampin Up In the City by Craft with Kate, Independent Demonstrator, Australia Congratulations Handmade Card DIY

I love all the colours in this card; Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist, Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party, Sweet Sugarplum, Tempting Turquoise and Wisteria Wonder. It’s like a lolly shop of candy colours!!!

I poked a hole in the tail of the plane and threaded some twine through and secured it at the back of the card before gluing it to the LLT card layer. The twine is adhered to the banner with glue dots.  The sentiment is from the Best Birds stamp set.

Don’t forget to stamp the inside of the card and the envelope to coordinate. It’s so much fun to get this sort of happy mail in the post box, don’t you agree?!

I cased this based on a card by Candy Ford. Thanks for the inspiration!

Bundle of Love meets Ribbon of Courage

Hello Friends,

My project today uses the Ribbon of Courage stamp set and coordinating framelits dies, with the stunning Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. #cutitnothoardit

TAMS Color Builder - blushing bride, gold, vanilla, wild wasabi.jpg

Ribbon of Courage meets Bundle of Love by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia #cutitnothoardit #cancer.jpg

I love how there are so many uses for this stamp set which was designed by Patty Bennett, a US Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and million dollar sales achiever!!! Yes, you heard it, she has sold over $1 million of Stampin’ Up! products in her career, and because of that massive achievement, Stampin’ Up! recognise & reward those amazing people with a trip to the home office in Utah and to design their own stamp set. How cool is that?!!! I’m sure there are many other things they also receive, but this is what I love about this wonderful company we work for!

The ribbon image was stamped in versamark ink, gold embossed and heat set before being die cut with the Support Ribbon framelits and popped up with some dimensionals. The flowers and leaves are also from the same framelits set and I added them behind for a little bit of colour!

Using this sentiment, you could give this card to anyone who is going through a tough time and this bundle is perfect for creating cards for those having treatment, whether it be for cancer or any other disease. I know in the future I will be creating some cards for those suffering with Multiple Sclerosis, just like myself 😦  You know, there is nothing better than going to the mailbox and finding some happy mail to cheer you up 🙂

Look at all that gold shining on this card, who wouldn’t want to open an envelope to see this inside?!!!!

Dear Crafters,

Today I have used the Window Box Thinlits dies to create a card!

 

stampin-up-window-box-thinlit-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-melbourne-occasions2017

I love copper metallic thread wound around the card. I tied another small piece through the centre in a knot to tie them together.

The sentiment from the Balloon Adventures stamp set, is heat embossed with copper embossing powder.
