Designer Series Paper, Holiday Catalogue, Memory Keeping/Project Life/Scrapbooking, Stampin' Up!

Precious memories forever

I love to do memory keeping but I know I need lots more practice at it. I envy so many scrapbooker’s who share their work and I admit, I find it very difficult to create a page I actually love, but I give it my all.

Today I have put this page together, because it is so important to me, to cherish these memories for many years to come. My eldest daughter who has just turned 12, was a finalist in the Primary Schools Speech Contest this month and it was a big deal!

She had to go through a couple of processes at her school before being chosen to represent her school in the final. There is no way in the world, I could ever, or even now, get up in front of an audience and deliver a speech in front of that many people!

I love the shine of this Frosted Florals Specialty Designer Series Paper that is printed on Shimmery card stock. It is available in the new Holiday catalogue (5 Sept) and it is stunning! The Embossing Paste, I added some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint to also give it a lovely shine.

Here she is with her Certificate of Participation.

Petals & More Memory Keeping

Hello Crafters,

As you know, July 30 – August 30 is a busy month for us and we have 2 birthdays done and another to go just in our immediate family!

Here is the Project Life page I did for my eldest who turned 12 using up some of the retired Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack. It is is important to me to record these milestones and my kids often get out my albums and browse through them. They love looking back on the memories they have made so far ♥

The Large Number Framelits dies are also retired, but I will forever use them for my scrapbooking and memory keeping albums. Here I have cut them out with Black Glimmer paper.

I will share some more pages soon of my 9 year olds special day!

Do you create a scrapbook album or a form of Memory Keeping for your family to look back on in years to come? Life is too short and I love to have these memories for the future generations.

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.

AWHT Blog Hop featuring Designer Series Paper

Blog Hop DSP.jpg

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring designer series paper. This month, Stampin’ Up! have a special on designer series paper, buy 3, get 1 free! We hope our blog hop inspires you to get crafting with your designer series paper.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from Cathy Proctor. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

My first project is a 12″ x 12″ scrapbook page of my eldest daughter when she was only 11 months old. She was already walking and into everything, so we went outside to get some winter sunshine and of course, she went straight for the flowers. So what better paper to use than the Petal Promenade DSP! I’ve paired it up on a base of Fresh Fig with some coloured punch outs of Sahara Sand and Blushing Bride using the Tailored Tag punch. I also added the cat punch and some of the Tea Room copper metallic edged ribbon, tied in a bow. The sentiment is from the Accented Blooms stamp set and the metal rose is from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.

My second project is a fancy fold card using the Tropical Escape DSP which coordinates with the Tropical Chic Bundle; Tropical Chic stamp set and Tropical Thinlits dies. It can be found on pages 120-121 of the annual catalogue.

The colours I have used are: Shaded Spruce, Blushing Bride and Soft Sea Foam.

The layering squares framelits added in the diamond formation, adds a new dimension to this fold. As you can see below, the frame is adhered to the left panel of the card and the centre piece is adhered to the right panel and slides underneath to close.

with the card fully open, I have added some stamping to coordinate with the design on the front!

Memory Keeping: the best memories to cherish

Hello Friends,

It is the first week of the school holidays here in Melbourne and I have been in desperate need of updating my memory keeping albums, and I have to say, I am very happy to be up to date again!!! Yay me!!!

But, today I am sharing a page from earlier this year when we took the girls out to the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice-creamery. I booked them in to the kids class “become a Junior Chocolatier” many months ago. It only ran for 1 hour and they got to create their own chocolates. As you can see by the smiles on their faces, they loved it!!! They even got to keep their apron and chefs hat and got a certificate as well.

Memory Keeping by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia 2017 #YVCI #stampinup.JPG

When we got home, I asked them to write on one of the Project Life cards, their own thoughts of their experience and I incorporated this into my page. This way, I not only have their memories written down, but they have done it in their own handwriting!

This is what they said:

Art With Heart Team Blog Hop: Annual Catalogue Sneak Peeks

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

Tonight 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 fabulous ideas to inspire you from our brand new 2017-2018 annual catalogue, which is available 1st June.

Be sure to request your copy of the catalogue today!

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.

Now let’s get started!

For my projects, I have used the Colorful Seasons suite, Colorful Seasons stamp set and Seasonal Layers thinlits dies (page 147 of new annual catalogue). I love how this bundle has so many items to be able to create a project for any season. There are 24 stamps in this stamp set; sentiments, flowers, leaves, branches, snowflakes and more!

Autumn – I have used Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango and Chocolate Chip. The material of the sun chair was stamped using the kissing technique with the wavy stamp from the set, Work of Art! I stamped the sentiment in Daffodil Delight, but it needed something, so I also stamped in Pumpkin Pie, but slightly offsetting it for a shadow effect.

Autumn - Colourful Season & Seasonal Layers Thinlits by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up demonstrator, Australia

Spring – I have used Powder Pink, Sweet Sugarplum, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White. The blossoms were stamped with Powder Pink and Sweet Sugarplum inks and die cut. The second one is a stamped off version of Sweet Sugarplum! I just love this colour combination and I could certainly see myself sitting on this chair enjoying a drink under the cherry blossoms 🙂

Winter – I have used Dapper Denim, Soft Sky and Whisper White with some Silver Glimmer of course! The snowflakes are stamped in Dapper Denim and stamped off a 2nd and 3rd time to get the gradient in the colour. I have also used some of the new Glitter Enamel Dots; how stunning are they?!!!!

Today I can also finally share some of the excitement from the Sydney OnStage event held at Luna Park last Saturday. Here is a photo of Catherine and I at the entrance to Lunda Park and the stunning Ferris Wheel with the Harbour Bridge behind! We had perfect sunny weather for the 2 days we were in Sydney.

We were lucky enough to get a table right up the front and here are a few of us from our Art With Heart Team. We had a fantastic time and loved receiving new product and of course, the brand new annual catalogue!!!!

A few weeks ago, I received a big brown box with 3 of the new In Colour Ink Pads, 2 stamp sets (Beautiful Bouquet & Paint Play), Lovely Laurel thinlits, ribbons, embellishments, In Colour card stock, Pretty Label Punch and the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper stack to name a few, to create these projects!

Over the next few months I’ll be able to show you more about my projects and better close up pictures, but what do you think of my display? Did you attended the event in Sydney, and did you see my display?

And here is the view from our hotel room which was absolutely stunning and I just had to share it with you!

Christmas Scrapbooking

Dear Crafters,

Well, it’s almost Christmas…. only 2 more sleeps until Santa arrives! Who is excited?!!

Today I have my completed scrapbooking pages that I had started and shared with you back in October. You can see that post here.

I have added my photos of my girls making our gingerbread, which has become our family tradition at the beginning of December each year.

Did you also notice the mini calendar? Well, there’s a story behind that!

Each year, I purchase about 25 of these mini calendars to make Calendar Easel Cards and I always have one or two left over. So this year, I have incorporated the individual pages into my scrapbooking pages!!!!

A great idea to use them up without feeling guilty throwing them in the bin. Just circle the date the photos were taken for a quick and fun way to add a date to your page.

And here is another page, this time celebrating my daughter receiving her Green Certificate at swimming, which took over 12 months to achieve. We didn’t think we would ever see this day, so certainly a memorable moment to scrapbook!

What do you think of this neat idea to use up those mini calendars?

Wishing you all a safe and Merry Christmas and I’ll be back on Monday with some new products!!!!
