12x12 Scrapbook page Engagement shoot Designer Series Paper Stampin' Up!

Something that you may not know about me, is that originally I was a 12×12 scrapbooker, and I only started making cards to use up my scraps of patterned paper. I don’t tend to show you guys much memory keeping on the blog, mainly because I don’t get much time to make 12×12 layouts very often anymore. However, I am about to embark on the enormous project that is my Wedding Album! I have everything ready, I just haven’t gotten around to printing the pictures! I am hoping to have at least made a start on the album by the time our first anniversary rolls around in August.

So, this layout will be finding its way into the Wedding Album, as it is part of our Engagement photo shoot.

I was challenged by my wonderful upline to use up a pack of Designer Series Paper a few weeks ago. At a Team Training event she presented us all with a pack of the Go Wild Designer Series Paper, as well as a couple of embellishment type bits and bobs and asked us to see what we could create. I have a whole heap of card using this paper now – which you will see if you are subscribed to my Email Newsletter today.

The layout is actually pretty simple. There are several layers of Designer Series Paper and Card Stock behind the photo. Because I enjoy the layered effect some of the layers have raised corner – popped up with a dimensional, and then I die cut the Rose Garden thinlits out of Blushing Bride Card Stock as embellishments. The title is stamped using the Layered Letters Alphabet, and the layout was completed with a scattering of Blushing Bride sequins.

The Go Wild Designer Series Paper stack is retiring soon (end of May) and is currently available for a reduced price of £5.08! Awesome!

Layered Letters

Stampin' Up! UK Layered Letters Work of Art

I have had great fun playing with the Layered Letters Alphabet Stamp set! but there are other stamp set that sit on my shelves, that I LOVE but just don’t seem to get the ‘mat time’ that they deserve! Work of Art is one of these stamp sets, I love it, but I really struggle to use it as often as I should – but I thought it might work well with Layered Letters

And guess what….

Stampin' Up! UK Layered Letters Work of Art

It does!

A nice, simple card for a Monday! We are in the middle of school leaver / exam / results season and Congrats cards are always a handy thing to have on stand-by!

The stamping is in Cucumber Crush, Crushed Curry and Pacific Point, onto a layer of Very Vanilla, and a card base of Pacific Point. I have to say, I don’t know where this colour combination came from, I’m trying to experiment with colour at the moment – just pulling a few random ink pads out and stamping away – and what is so great about Stampin’ Up! inks is that they ALL work together, even combinations you wouldn’t expect!

What’s your favourite colour combinations this week?

Technique Tuesday|Layered Alphabet

Stampin' Up! UK Technique videos

I have a slightly different Technique Tuesday for you this week. I have been loving the Layered Letters Alphabet, I’ve used it for all sorts the projects this month – Catalogue bookmarks, my swatch book, and now my customer Thank You cards for July!

If you have placed an order this month, this card will be coming to you in the post at the end of the month! If you haven’t ordered yet…. you better get ordering to get one!

Stampin' Up! UK Layered Letters Alphabet

Aren’t they cute! Check out the video for some great tips about using this stamp set!

Top tips:

– Stamp your layering pieces first! get those rectangles and ovals onto your card – using different colours for each one looks awesome!

-Lay your letters out onto a clear block, to check your spelling! (particularly important if your dyslexic like me!)

-Position your letters onto the layering spots, stamp side down, and pick them all up in one go with a large clear block – this way you can stamp them together like one big stamp!

Do you have any alphabet stamp tips? Let me know in the comments section below!

Card Storage Box

Stampin' Up! UK card storage box cherry on top DSP

There are a stack of these floating around on Pinterest, but I just had to put my own spin on it. The Classic Card Box. I wanted a box specifically to hold cards and envelopes while they wait to go to customers. Did you know that I always send a ‘Thank You’ card when you place an order in my store? If you have ordered and haven’t received a card it may be that you have selected ‘No Contact’ drop me an email if you think I’ve missed you.

Stampin' Up! UK card storage box video tutorial

The first box uses Lost Lagoon card stock, and a piece of that lovely Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack. Whereas the video version is in Bermuda Bay with a piece of Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper. I grabbed the Cherry on Top DSP during demonstrator Pre-Order, purely because it was available to me! Demonstrators get the chance to order from a sample of product before the big launch! and I have to say, looking at the pictures in the Catalogue, I’m not sure that I would have ordered if it hadn’t been in that pre-order selection. And I would have missed out! Because it is fabulous! Featuring Bermuda Bay, Cucumber Crush, Crushed Curry, Pool Party, Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder, and a collection of birthday themed papers with some great patterns; it would look fab as part of a Project Life album! I might even have to order a second pad!

Measurements:

Card stock – 12 x 8″ (30.5 x 20.5 cm)

Score on the long side at – 4 1/2, 5 3/4, 10 1/4, and 11 1/2″ (11.5, 14.5, 26, and 29 cm)

Score on the short side at – 1 1/4″ (3 cm) turn the card stock around and score in the wide section nearest the skinny flap at 1 1/2″ (4 cm)

Swatch Book

Stampin' Up! UK swatch book

If you have been following me for a while you may remember last year, when I shared my Customised Colour Coach. Well, can you imagine my sadness, when the colour coach was retired this week! I know, I don’t really know how I am going to cope! well, better now I have made this;

My Swatch Book!

Stampin' Up! UK swatch book

I just love a good swatch! I use them often when I’m choosing colours for projects (an even more often when I’m creating items for customer orders!) And when I spotted the Layered Letters Alphabet in the latest catalogue, I just knew I had the perfect swatch stamp too!

So, I have created 3 PDF’s for you to download and make your own Stampin’ Up! swatch book. The first file contains swatch cards for all 4 colour families, that’s 36 ink pad colours, while the 2nd is for the current In-Colours (2014-2016 and 2015-2017), and the 3rd download contains the swatch spots for the previous two sets of In-Colours!

Colour Swatches – Colour Families

Colour Swatches – In Colours

Colour Swatches – In Colours – previous

To create my swatch book:

First print the PDF files onto Whisper White card stock

Using the Layered Letters Alphabet stamp set, and the rectangular stamp, swatch each ink colour in the coordinating swatch spot.

Cut the swatches into 2″ squares by cutting along the lines of the template.

Make a hole in the top left hand corner of each swatch using the 1/4″ handheld punch and keep the swatches together with an O ring (I used these ones from Amazon)#

 

As mentioned in the video, Stampin’ Up! are currently running a great joining offer. Sign up between now and the 30th June 2015, and Stampin’ Up! will add an additional two stamp sets of your choosing into your Starter Kit for FREE! Awesome! For each person who joins my team during this promotion I will not only be sending you my usual new demo goodies, but I will also add a completed swatch book!
