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

Falling in Love, 12″x 12″

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a 12″ x 12″ traditional scrapbooking layout using some brand new product which will be available in the Occasions 2017 catalogue! But if you can’t wait to get your hands on these stunning new products, why not join my team and you can pre-order these items in December (a whole month before anyone else)!!


As you know, myself and a couple of my team went to Brisbane a few weeks ago for the OnStage Live event for demonstrators. We had a ball and so I had to scrapbook a couple of photos from our time away. It was Kim’s first Stampin’ Up! event and she was totally stunned with the amount of product we received as well as the information shared and new friendships made. We certainly have many memories to giggle about, especially with Bev’s multiple mishaps, from forgetting her boarding pass for the plane, finding out she wasn’t registered when we arrived and losing her sunnies on the last day. She certainly kept us entertained!!!


We would also like to thank Judy (far right) for being our room mate for a few days.

These new designer series papers are called Falling in Love and yes, my favourite Blushing Bride colour makes its appearance. I think they made these papers for me!


The font was printed using my computer using Blushing Bride onto Very Vanilla card!

And the new Very Vanilla ribbon is just beautiful, especially teamed with the Very Vanilla Lace Trim we currently have in the Annual catalogue.


Awww and check out these hot air balloons – yahoo – Up & Away Thinlits dies and they coordinate with the Lift Me Up stamp set.

What do you think of this 12 x 12 layout?

Flowers, Stampin' Up!, Stampin' Up! Events

Swaps for OnStage

Dear Crafters,

Now that I am in Brisbane for the OnStage Live Stampin’ Up! event for 3 days, I can share with you my swaps!

When we attend live events, we make card fronts only to swap with our demonstrator friends for the hour or so before it all begins. The excitement is rich and full of chatter as we meet new people and swap to gain ideas that we may not have thought of creating.

Anyway, here is what I created for this year’s event.



I am not a confident creator of the vintage style, but I do love it and wanted to have a go seeing as this stamp set has the lacy style stamp.


The floral image is coloured with Stampin’ Write Markers and the white flowers are coloured using the AquaPainter filled with bleach and dipped into a little White Craft Ink just for something a little bit different!


What do you think of my swaps?

Products Used:

Stamp Sets: Awesomely Artistic, Touches of Texture
Cardstock: Tip Top Taupe, Emerald Envy
Inks: Craft Whisper White, Black Stazon, Tip Top Taupe
Stampin’ Write Markers: Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder
Other:  Big Shot, Elegant Dots TIEF, Banner Triple Punch, Tombo Multipurpose Glue, Paper Snips, Ruched Ribbon, Aqua Painter, Bleach, Handheld Stapler, Trimmer, Distress Tool

All Catalogues and the Clearance Rack are available online here! They are full of amazing new products and wonderful full colour picture inspiration. It is a must have for anyone interested in Ink, Paper and Stamps!
