OnStage pillow gifts

Dear Crafters,

Today, I am home resting after a huge couple of days in Sydney for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Local event which was held at Luna Park!  It was so exciting getting our hands on the brand new Annual Catalogue, and it never fails to impress me, but…. I am still not allowed to share anything from that event until tomorrow.

So, today I will share the pillow gift I made for my room buddy, Sharon and the gift I made for Catherine Proctor, who was so kind and caring and did so much for Sharon and I while we were in Sydney. We can’t thank Catherine enough for all her driving, picking us up from the airport on Friday and taking us to our hotel, then again on the day of the event!

For Sharon, my travel and room buddy, I made the gift box and inside was the earrings and necklace set (Blooms & Bliss DSP) and a little notebook in coordinating colours.

For Catherine, I made this card and coordinating notepad.

I hadn’t actually met Catherine before this event, so I wasn’t sure what to make to thank her, but who doesn’t love hearts, butterflies and pearls, right?!!!!!!

and because Catherine was also our taxi on Friday, I baked her some homemade choc chip cookies to enjoy with her cuppa!

Paper Piecing

Dear Crafters,

Today I have created a card using the Paper Piecing Technique, not to be confused with the Paper Piercing Technique!

paper-piecing-technique-using-stampin-ups-youve-got-this-blooms-bliss-dsp-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-melbourne-front

This technique is quite easy, but you need to like fussy cutting!!!!

I stamped the floral image onto the chosen Designer Series Paper and then fussy cut out the flowers petals with Paper Snips. I did the same for the leaves, but onto a different designer paper.

paper-piecing-technique-using-stampin-ups-youve-got-this-blooms-bliss-dsp-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-melbourne-flat-close

Stamp the image again (stem) onto your Very Vanilla card and then glue the fussy cut pieces over the top.

I added the cute little ribbon bow, using some of the metallic ribbon that I got for FREE during Saleabration when I placed a $90 order!!!

Window Box Ribbon Dispenser

Dear Crafters,

Today I have used the Window Box Framelits to create a Ribbon Dispenser.

I posted this on one of our private Stampin’ Up! Facebook Forums, and the response I got was enormous (over 1.3k likes) and so many requests for a tutorial on how I made it.

window-box-ribbon-dispenser-using-stampin-up-products-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-australia-classes-in-rowville-occasions2017-front

I love the detail on each end and you can decorate it with any Designer Series Paper!!!

I have attempted doing a written tutorial for this, but please let me know if you find it hard to follow, as I didn’t write down instructions when I was creating this the first time! You can download the PDF tutorial by clicking here window-box-thinlits-ribbon-dispenser-by-craft-with-kate.

AWHT Blog Hop: Designer Series Paper

Dear Crafters,art-with-heart-image

Today some of the Art with Heart Stampin’ Up! team girls are sharing some wonderful ideas to inspire you with our Designer Series Papers. This month is the start of the new Stampin’ Up! year and we have a special promotion on our Designer Series Paper, buy 3 get 1 FREE for the month of October and there is no limit!

2016-buy-3-get-1-free-graphic

You have come to my blog from the lovely, Monika O’Neill.  Blogs are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

I have a double spread scrapbook layout using the Candy Cane Lane DSP, Cookie Cutter Bundle & Star of Light stamp set.

candy-cane-lane-dsp-cookie-cutter-bundle-gingerbread-man-diy-double-layout-scrapbooking-memory-keeping-holiday-catalogue-2016-cards-by-kate-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan

I haven’t done any journalling, as I have created this ready for Christmas this year, and it really isn’t that far away!

Every December, my girls and I make gingerbread men and tiny gingerbread houses and we decorate them. It takes us the whole weekend but we have made it our annual tradition.

My next project features the Blooms & Bliss DSP. I adore the colours in this paper pack; Blushing Bride, Island Indigo, Mint Macaron, Rich Razzleberry, Sahara Sand, Sweet Sugarplum & Whisper White.

The sentiment is from the Suite Sayings stamp set. The flower is from the Crazy About You stamp set and coordinating punch, Flower Medallion.

This card uses the same Blooms & Bliss DSP, but in the blue tones!

 

The next DSP to feature is from the Holiday catalogue, Presents & Pinecones. This has been my favourite paper pack this season! This is a shaker card using the Delicate Ornament thinlits.

My final project for today features the Floral Bouquet DSP with the Crazy About You stamp set and coordinating Medallion punch.

I love the classic blue and white of these papers.
