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!

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!

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!

Lotus flowers with Succulent Garden Suite

Dear Crafters,

Today I am using the Succulent Garden Suite, which I was not going to purchase, but…. I succumbed and jumped on the band wagon and bought it last week. My reasons were not only because I have seen so many amazing projects made with this bundle, but a couple of weeks ago, we went to the Blue Lotus Water Gardens in Yarra Junction with my family to celebrate my mums birthday. It was a stunning garden, so big and so much to see!

Here is a photo of one of the lotus ponds there.

and the lotus flowers were absolutely stunning!

Here are a couple of the many flowers I photographed.

So, after our visit there, I could see the use of the succulent framelits dies using Sweet Sugarplum card to create my own lotus flowers!

Here are a couple of the projects we made during my craft class on Saturday. The ladies loved creating them too!

This gift box uses the Window Box Thinlits dies with the Succulent framelits dies to create the lotus on top. We also incorporated the glimmer assortment pack, one of the Saleabration items recently added!

We also made a card using the Window Box Thinlits dies, to show my attendees the versatility of using the dies for card making also.

The sentiment on this card is from the Cool Treats stamp set.

If you live in Melbourne and haven’t been to the Blue Lotus Water Gardens, you must visit next year, a I have a feeling it may have closed now for 2017.

What do you think of my class projects?

Birthday, feminine, Flowers, Stampin' Up!, Thinlits Dies

Window Box flower pot

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a very pretty birthday card using the Window Box Thinlits dies.

I cased this from Tina Rappe, who made one in pinks!

happy-birthday-window-box-card-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-demonstrator-australia-occasions-2017-handmade-feminine-card-diy-2

I adore Pool Party, Whisper White and Chocolate Chip as a colour combination!

happy-birthday-window-box-card-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-demonstrator-australia-occasions-2017-handmade-feminine-card-diy-feature

The sentiment is from the Cool Treats stamp set. Don’t you just love the font? I love how the ‘Happy’ is capitalised and the ‘Birthday’ is italics!
