You are a Fabulous Work of Art!

Simple simple simple card this week.

As I am sure you know by now, I love a clean, simple card! Most of my creations are single layer, and sometimes I might add a punched shape or two, but not often. Well, the card this week is exactly like that, but I have jazzed it up a bit with some 2 layer stamping AND 2nd generation stamping! get me!

Stampin Up UK Fabulous Work of Art<a href="//www.pinterest.com/pin/create/button/?

The card base (lost lagoon btw) is a piece of standard size cardstock (A4 or 8 1/2×11) cut cross ways and folded in half! Then I added a piece of Whisper White cut slightly smaller as my main (actually, only) layer.

Work of Art is a great stamp set (Love it, can you tell?!) and I selected several stamps from the set. The swoosh stamp is stamped once in Pool Party and then stamped again next to it as a place for the sentiment (which is stamped in Tangelo Twist – isnt it gorgeous!) and then I used the beautiful Lost Lagoon colour to stamp over the Pool Party for the long stamp and that lovely heart. Then the whole layer is attached to the card base on Dimensionals!

Simple!

Project Tray

You know, sometimes, when your working on a longer project (mass producing wedding invitations, Project Life by Stampin Up!, making items for craft fairs or fundraising events) you need somewhere to put all your items together, to stop them taking over!

Well, here is your solution! The Project Tray!

Stampin' Up! UK Project Tray

I use these all the time to hold various items and projects in the works, they hold items ready for making / photographing / selling / sending etc. I love them! and I thought I’d share the design with you.

It is super simple (as always, I cant do complicated!)

Here are the measurements:

IMPERIAL

Cardstock = 10″ x 8″

and score at 1″ on all sides

METRIC

Cardstock = 25.5cm x 20.5cm

Score at 2.5cm on all sides

See, told you it was simple!

Just for You!

Hello there!

I thought I try something a little different this week. Just like when I’m scrapbooking (something I havent shared much of with you yet – watch this space) I like to push myself and try something new. So, I had a look at a couple of challenges for this week and settled on the Around the World Stamping’ Up! challenge!

This time they have selected three colours to be used: Hello Honey, Blackberry Bliss and Calypso Coral.

Now, this is where I panicked! I don’t have Calypso Coral (yet!  still building my collection over here!). But then I realised something, I have all the Stampin’ Write Markers! So, actually I do have Calypso Coral – just not in a Stampin’ Pad! Silly! Have I mentioned the Stampin’ Write Markers to you guys yet? No? How have you escaped! I Love Them! The great thing about the markers is not only can you colour an image with them, write with them, draw with them, but you can Stamp with them to! Awesome!

Right, back to the Challenge. I looked at the colours, and I looked at my stamps, and I thoughts for about 3 days! and then suddenly, inspiration!

AW20 - challenge entry - Just For You

The Work of Art Stamp set has amazing background type images I love to use to ground other stamps on the card. I stamped the zig-zag / chevron image in Blackberry Bliss, before colouring between the lines with my Calypso Coral marker. I used Hello Honey to stamp the flowers, which I punched, and scrunched to give dimension, and then added the Just for You (this time colouring the stamp with that Calypso Coral marker). To finish I added a bit of bling with three jewels <3

Why you absolutely NEED the new Stampin’ Up! UK Catalogue!

Sorry this post is up a little later than usual (you can blame my UPS man!) but I was waiting on my order of shiny new things from the new Stampin’ Up! 2014-2015 catalogue

Stampin Up! - New things from the 2014-2015 catalogue

As usual all the new items in the Stampin’ Up! catalogue are gorgeous (and I want them all!) but I had to make a selection and so these are my picks for the next couple of months! Stampin Up! Itty Bitty Accents punch pack

Stampin’ Up! make the most awesome punches, and the small punch packs are always popular, this new offering is no exception! The Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack coordinates with the Something to Say Stamp Set. The stamped images (a heart, a star, and the flower) fit well in the punches and help you create your own custom embellishments, quickly! I love them!

But I think the most exciting thing for me are the new Designer Series Papers! I ordered two this time: Flashback and Sweet Taffy. As usual the papers use Stampin’ Up! colour collections and In Colours, coordinating with all the cardstock, inks and embellishments already in your stash!

Stampin Up Flashback DSP
Flashback!

Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Pool Party, Real Red, Smokey Slate, Very Vanilla

Stampin Up! Sweet Taffy DSP
Sweet Taffy!

 

Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
Of course I have a video with all this gorgeousness in as well!

and then you can purchase all these items from my shop – by clicking the pretty boxes below!

Project Life by Stampin’ Up! June 2014

Hello! Welcome! to my new monthly blog post!

Each month, hopefully the first Saturday / Sunday of each month, I will be posting a look at my Project Life.

If you havent checked out the latest Project Life by Stampin’ Up! products you really should (links at the end of this post). Stampin’ Up have now released a number of Project Life kits, Everyday Adventure and Happiness Is (both great for everyday events and regular Project Life-ing), Little Moments (for baby), and Playground (awesome for all those photos of the kids! Then, later this month; Love Story, which is definitely on my wish list, designed for love, engagements, weddings and related events!  Each kit has an associated accessory pack, and there are blank grid cards, pens, pocket pages, binders, framelits dies, stamps and a corner rounder punch available.
Stampin Up Project Life June 2014

As I have previously mentioned (HERE), I love this method of ‘quick’ scrapbooking. So much so that I already have one of the larger Becky Higgins Project Life Kits, and the Wedding mini-kit (see a theme here!) and I will be using this system for my wedding album, more on that in next months Project Life by Stampin Up! post!

So, on with June. June was a little busy round here; I work 3 or 4 days a week, becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, Blogging and YouTube, meeting friends, wedding planning, and trying to have 30 seconds to myself; I only filled 2 page protector. But thats ok, one of the great things about this system for scrapbooking is the versatility; what do you want to document? Is it the daily events in your life, a big event (such as a wedding, or the birth of a child), a family holiday, or getting all those family photos into an album other people can look at. For me, I’m planning on documenting our daily lives; as well as the planning and countdown to our wedding next year. I’m hoping to have at least one page per month, any more than that is a bonus! I have a couple of tools to help me: a good diary, and two iPhone apps remindingme to take some pictures! Stampin Up Project Life June 2014

Last month I only used one, Collect (From Free), an app which describes itself as a everyday photo diary. This month I’m continuing to use Collect, but I am also using the Little Moments app by  Fat Mum Slim (£1.49), this app not only gives you a great range of photo embellishment and editing tools, but also links to the #FMSphotoaday prompts.
The pages themselves came together very quickly. I print my photos at home, one my regular printer, so trimming my photos takes a little while, buts worth it in the end. Once you have your photos, and have a page protector selected, its a simple task of laying out your photos and matching them to a card. Then is the fun bit, adding journalling and embellishments. Stampin’ Up! make this even easier by giving you the option of purchasing the co-coordinating accessory pack, as well as using Stampin’ Up Colours – so you can customise embellishments with your Inks, Stampin-Write markers, Blendabilities, and cardstock!

Like I said, this months pages are quite simple; I know I could have embellished a lot more, but really I just needed to get my memories out of my head and onto the page, and that took enough time this month!

Custom Stampin’ Up! Color Coach!

Stampin Up Custom Color Coach

I recently wrote a post about the Stampin’ Up! Color Coach (See it HERE!) I love it, I think its an awesome tool (and Yes! you definitely need one!), but there was something missing! I’ve customised mine to meet my needs, and I thought I’d give you a peak!

I like the screw fastener the Color Coach comes with, but I like a bit more flexibility (I move the swatches around a lot and I like to be able to have one on its own, which I found a little awkward with the screw), So, I swapped it out for a O ring (most likely found at my local craft-type store, maybe in a mini-album kit, but believe me its been floating around my craft room for a good while!).

I also like to be able to see at a glance which inks I currently own (no, I don’t have them all yet! one day soon hopefully!), and what a tone on tone looks like. So, I stamped the same colour of ink on the card (Eg: Melon Mambo Swatch, stamped on with Melon Mambo ink) using the Everything Eleanor Swirlly stamp.

Now I can move the swatches around much more easily and see which colours I have (and which ones I need to get next!)
