Dear Crafters,

Well, this afternoon I share some individual photos of my projects that I created using brand new product from the Annual Catalogue 2017-2018. This catalogue will be available from 1st June 2017.

Hoppy Easter: Art with Heart Blog Hop

art-with-heart-team-blog-hop-logo-currentDear Crafters,

Today I am participating in a blog hop along with the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team. We thought it would be fun to share some Easter projects, seeing as Easter is only about 3 weeks away!

Sale-a-bration continues, but must end on 31st March, so to earn your free item, just place a minimum $90 order – ask me how!

Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links. You have come to me from our team leader, Claire Daly!

Now let’s get started!

For my projects, I have used the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Hey Chick!

Here is another little Easter Treat Basket using the Window Box thinlits dies. I adore how versatile these thinlits are for so many projects, from gift boxes to these cute little baskets which hold three hollow eggs!

Easter Treat Basket using Stampin Ups Window Box thinlits & Any Occasion stamp set by Kate Morgan Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia 3D DIY Occasions 2017 Saleabration 2017

To create this one, you cut two of the box shapes and join them together, but then you only need half of the hexagon shape, so cut these in half. I also removed the tabs from either end (top and bottom of pic). Then cut a strip for the handle. Super easy to create! The sentiment is from the Saleabration, Any Occasion stamp set.

This next one is using the same idea but I die cut the stripes into the side and used those strips to create a basket weave effect.

The card uses the Circle of Spring stamp set and the coordinating Wonderful Wreath framelits dies from the Annual catalogue. To create the background,I inked up one side of the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, placed the Sahara Sand cardstock inside, closed it and rubbed over the top to create the pattern. I also sponged the edges and die cut a circle behind the wreath so the sentiment would shine through!

The Stampin’ Write Markers (Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo & Peekaboo Peach) were used to colour the wreath for a bold and bright look!

Easter Basket

Dear Crafters,

Welcome to Friday and today being Good Friday, also means Happy Easter!

So to celebrate, I have some cute little Easter baskets to show you.

I did share these with you in an Easter Blog Hop a couple of weeks ago, but I didn’t share any instructions at the time on how to make them.

So here are some cute little baskets that my girls gave to their teachers on the last day of Term for Easter. I used the Designer Series Papers, because they are double sided and they are so pretty.

Easter Basket  Easter Basket

These are only small. Add small strips of cellophane inside then add 3 little solid eggs. The girls loved giving these to their teachers.

What you need:

4 strips DSP: 5-1/2″ x 3/4″ (basket)

1 strip DSP: 5-1/2″ x 1/2″ (handle)

1 strip DSP 7-1/4″ x 1/2″ (top)

1 x 1-3/4″ circle punched (base)

Step 1 – Add Sticky Strip or Fast Fuse to the “Top” (longest length) as shown below.

IMG_0972

Step 2 – Start adding the strips for the basket, starting at one end and lining them up against each other.

IMG_0973

Step 3 – take the first strip and fold it around next to the fourth strip (see below)

IMG_0974

Step 4 – Repeat with the remaining strips and join the top together.

IMG_0975

Step 5 – Now you have your basket shape

IMG_0976

Step 6 – Push down gently from the top to squash it a little and add the circle punch to the bottom.

Step 7 – Add the handle with some brads and fill with your favourite mini eggs!

I hope you enjoy making some of these Easter Baskets yourself.

Happy Easter,

Easter Inspiration Blog Hop

Dear Crafters,

AWHT Logo-001

Today I bring you another AWHT blog hop with some of the awesome ladies in the Art With Heart Stampin’ Up! Team. Today our focus is on Easter!

If you place an order with me during Sale-a-bration, you can choose a free item with every $90 you spend in one transaction. There are lots of fabulous free items to choose from (ask me for a brochure and an Occasions Catalogue) and the promotion will end on 31st March.

When you join during Sale-a-bration, you get to choose whatever you like from our catalogues, but pay just $169 for $235 worth of product (that’s a huge discount!) but also you get to choose between two free product options. It’s quick and easy to join online too. Ask me how!

You have come to my blog from Tamie Holt.

Now let’s get into showing you what you can make with the Indescribable Gift Stamp Set from the Occasions catalogue.

For my projects, I have used the Indescribable Gift Stamp Set, and the In Colours Designer Series Paper Stack. 

Indescribable Gift

I have used Blackberry Bliss as my card base. I die cut the largest of the Deco Labels Framelits from the front of the card.

I used a piece of Vellum and stamped the Indescribable Gift image with Stazon Black ink and let it dry, before colouring with the In Colours Stampin’ Write markers (Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow & Baked Brown Sugar).

Indescribable Gift

The next step, I used my Stampin’ Piercing Mat and the Simply Scored Stylus to gently go around the flower petals on the coloured-in side. When you turn the image over, you can see the white shining through where the stylus has touched the vellum.

Indescribable Gift  Indescribable Gift

I glued the vellum to the inside of the card and put a piece of DSP (with the same size die cut) over it to cover the crooked edges and make the inside more attractive!

Indescribable Gift

I finished off with a coordinating ribbon bow and the sentiment from the same stamp set which I die cut with the Bitty Banners Framelits.

Indescribable Gift

I also made some cute little baskets for my girls to give to their friends for Easter from the same coordinating Designer Series Paper! How cute are they?!!!

Easter Basket  Easter Basket

These are only small and I cut some small strips of cellophane to put inside before adding 3 little solid eggs. I think the girls are going to love giving these to their closest friends.
