Birthday, Memory Keeping/Project Life/Scrapbooking, Stampin' Up!

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.

Quick and Easy Birthday Cards

Dear Crafters,

Today I share 4 cards that are quick and easy to create using the Picture Perfect Party 6×6 Designer Series Paper stack. For these 4 cards, I have only used 2 of the sheets of DSP. One side of these papers are photographic shots and they are so life-like!

This card uses Peekaboo Peach for the card base and the sentiment. Glue a 3″ strip of DSP across the centre of the card. Stamp the sentiment from Rose Wonder stamp set onto the balloon. Add two strips of the Bermuda Bay Mini Chevron ribbon and tie a bow!

This card uses Berry Burst for the card base and the sentiment. Glue a 3″ strip of DSP across the centre of the card. Stamp the sentiment from Rose Wonder stamp set onto the balloon. Add a piece of the Lemon Lime Twist Mini Striped ribbon and tie a bow!

This card uses Basic Black for the card base. Glue a piece of 3¾” x 5½” DSP to the centre of the card. Stamp the sentiment from Number of Years stamp set onto the 4″ x 1½” vellum in Berry Burst ink. Die cut the number 9 using the Large Numbers dies in Berry Burst card. Using a sponge dauber, apply a thin layer of Tombo Multipurpose glue. This is the only way to add vellum without the glue showing through! Add the 9 with mini dimensionals.

This card uses Lemon Lime Twist for the card base. Use a 2½” strip of DSP across the centre of the card, but add the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch out behind before gluing to the card. Add a piece of Berry Burt Metallic edged ribbon across the bottom of the DSP then tie a bow and glue it on! Die cut the numbers using the Large Numbers dies from Silver Glimmer card and add with mini dimensionals.

I cannot believe that the Number of Years stamp set and the coordinating dies are about to retire 😦 I use them all the time for kids birthday cards and if you too haven’t purchased them yet, make sure you add them to your shopping cart before they are gone!

A full list of products can be found at the end of this post!

Christmas, Stampin' Up!

Heart of Christmas, Week 11 – Bundle of Love

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 11 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today uses the Bloomin’ Love stamp set, Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper, Large Number Framelits, Layering Oval Thinlits and the Card Front Builder Thinlits dies!

Heart of Christmas card using Stampin Ups Bundle of Love, Bloomin Love, Large Numbers Framelits, Card Front Builder Thinlits by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Australia. Craft with Kate #cutitnothoardit side.JPG

I love gold and vanilla together, I find it such a warm colour combination.

A funny story – I started this card but had not finished it, so came back to it the next day to find the vellum trees I had die cut and not glued down, were chewed and on the floor and the bottom corner of the card under those trees, was dirty and smudged from where he tried to chew it. Luckily I was able to save it, and that will trust me for not finishing a card and putting it away before going to bed!

That gold foil is just so shiny, perfect detail for these large number dies, which I don’t use enough and I should! They are adhered to the card with the new mini dimensionals, the perfect size to fit beneath them.

And the inside of the card is also decorated with some more vellum trees and a strip of the DSP.

Birthday, Handmade Cards, Kids Cards, Stampin' Up!

Happy 7th Birthday Nicola!

Dear Crafters,

Today I have another project using the brand new Foxy Friends Bundle and the Large Number Framelits. Sorry for the reflection, it has been quite gloomy here in Melbourne and very difficult to photograph!

This card was made for a gorgeous little girls 7th birthday party that we attended on Saturday.

Foxy Friends, Kitty Cat, 7th Birthday, DIY, #stampinup, Handmade

I started by applying some of the A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper to the background of the card and then a grass was added. I cut a strip of cucumber crush card and used the fringe scissors to create this.

I stamped the cat & punched the pieces out with the Fox builder punch. The stump and the mushrooms were stamped and fussy cut.

Can you see the Stampin’ Write Marker lines on the Banner and the 7? How did I draw that line so evenly around them, you ask? Well, when I die cut the images, before I took them out of the die, I traced that line around the inside of the die and did small dots, then I removed the card from the metal dies. Clever hey?!!!!!

I had great fun creating this card for Nicola’s 7th Birthday party on Saturday!

Happy Birthday Mum!

Dear Crafters,

On Saturday we celebrated my mum’s birthday and can you guess how old she turned?

If you look real close you may be able to see the number in the card.

It’s very subtle, but I do love this technique. I’m not sure if this technique has a name, but I do love it!

I have also used the Number of Years stamp set and the coordinating framelits.

On Saturday it was my nephews birthday and he turned 7!

Here is the cheeky monkey card I made for him using the Number of Years stamp set and the Large Numbers framelits dies. The monkey image is from the Zoo Babies stamp set.

Don’t you love how fun these 7 monkeys look, hanging off the number 7?!!!!

Birthday Numbers

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a couple of samples using the Number of Years stamp set and coordinating Large Numbers framelits dies which are must have items from the Occasions catalogue.

If you read my blog, you will have noticed that my eldest daughter is turning 10 this year (omg) and so I have started creating many cards using these products with the number 10 on them for her friends!

Large Numbers Framelits Number of Years Birthday #stampinup

This first card is very simple but effective using Rose Red as the base and Blushing Bride for most of the stamping.

Large Numbers Framelits Number of Years Birthday #stampinup  Large Numbers Framelits Number of Years Birthday #stampinup

This next card is also very quick and easy, and uses the brand new Confetti Embossing Folder. How cute is that?

Large Numbers Framelits Number of Years Birthday #stampinup  Large Numbers Framelits Number of Years Birthday #stampinup

I love how a little embossing can completely change the look of a card and it is so easy to just run it through a Big Shot machine!

The Number of Years stamp set and the Large numbers Framelits dies can be purchased as a bundle for only $85.75 (#140811) saving you 15%. And if you add the embossing folder to your order, you can select 1 FREE product of any choice from the Saleabration brochure. How cool is that?!!!!
