KBH – Dads & Grads-June 2019

Hello and welcome to my blog   You may have hopped over from Linda   and her great project or you may have started here with me.  If this is your first visit I am a Demo from the UK and today I am blog hopping with a group of talented Global Demos.  This month we are celebrating the Dad’s with Father’s Day coming up.  Although my Dad passed away 5 years ago it is a special time to remember those who are not with us as well as celebrating with my husband and our children.

So today I am showcasing a card which was well received at a recent Quick and Easy Card Class where we used the Sailing Home Bundle

 

The Sahara Sand mat card was embossed using the Pinewood Planks 3d folder. This folder had been overlooked until I realised it would work well with this suite. The Balmy Blue mat card was sponged with Craft Whisper White Ink. Everyone loved this simple technique.

The ropes and label were cut with Smooth Sailing new style dies. They were a dream to use as the framelits are so much easier to line up with stamped images. The sentiment (from the Well Said Stamp Set), lighthouse and birds (Sailing Home Stamp Set) were stamped in Night of Navy ink. The circle was from Layering Circles dies. A anchor from Sail Away Trinkets and Bakers Twine just finished off the card nicely. A list of products used can be found below.

I hope you liked my card and that I have inspired you to look at this lovely suite. Now its time for you to hope over to Sue for more inspiration. Don’t forget to leave a message before you leave.

Stamp n Hop – Hello to New Catalogue – June 19

Hello and welcome to the Stamp n Hop Blog Hop, you may have hopped to me from Jo and her lovely project or you may have come direct to me. I am joining a group of talented international demos and I am so excited as the theme is Hello to the 2019-2020 catalogue which means showcasing new products! Y So many lovely new products to choose from I was a bit overwhelmed as to what to use.

I must confess that I rarely choose one of the Hostess Sets as my Rewards but as soon as I saw the New Wonders set I knew I had to get it. Such a lovely whimsical set and it will be perfect for cards I have in mind for one of my best friends who has just had her first book published. However today I am showcasing a birthday card for another dear friend.

I coloured the stamp image in with blend pens and the smaller mat layers were cut out using the Rectangle Layering Dies. A stitched border was made on the blue strip of card by using the long die from Stitched Nested labels. Sentiment was stamped and cut out by the Circle Layering Dies. Silver Thread, Ribbon and Silver Glimmer Paper was added for the finishing touches. I have listed the products I have used for your information further below.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit to my blog and that I have inspired you to choose this lovely set. Now it is time for you to hop over to Sharon’ blog for more inspiration but before you go don’t forget to leave a comment below.

Ink & Share Blog Hop – Goodbye – May 2019

Hello and welcome to my blog and to the Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog hop. I am a Independent Demo from the UK and live in a small rural village on the Suffolk /Norfolk border in the UK.

Today’s hop is about saying “Goodbye” to the products that we have come to love from the 2018/19 Annual Catalogue and Spring/Summer Catalogue. You may have joined me from Heike’s blog and her lovely layout.

I have chosen The Floral Romance Suite.

I chose a family photo which was taken on a holiday to Tunisia in 2012 and thought the Floral Romance Specialty Papers would work together. I love the papers especially the printed vellums.

I stamped the sentiment from Wonderful Romance Stamp Set and cut leaves (Floral Framelit Dies are unavailable but you could use the leaf punch or one from another die set). I will be sorry to see the Big Shot go as it is a must have in my craft stash. The Banner was Stamped from Pick a Pennant which was fussy cut as I don’t have the coordinating dies (Stamp set and Playful Pennants Die Bundle 148393). Rectangle Stitched Framelits made perfect labels for journaling. Finally I used Frosted Flower Embellishments to add some dimension and I’m pleased to say they will be in the new catalogue..

I hope you have enjoyed your visit to my blog and that you like my layout and I have inspired you to have a look at this lovely suite. Now it is time for you to hop over to Chery’s blog to see her lovely layout more inspiration but before you go don’t forget to leave a comment below.

KBH Theme: Techniques – May 2019

Hello and welcome back to my blog. Today myself and a group of global Demonstrators are showcasing “Techniques” as part of the Kre8tors monthly blog hop. You may have joined me from Sandra and her lovely project. So sit back with a cuppa and enjoy the rest of the hop.

I thought I would show the Curtain Drape Fancy Fold which makes a stunning card with our beautiful Designer Series Paper. I have used the retiring All My Love paper which is perfect for Birthdays, Anniversaries, Wedding’s and Valentines.

To make the drape you will need 12″x12″ DSP which has been cut to 4″x11.8″. This is then scored at 3″, 4″, 6″, 7″, 9″ and 10″. The paper is then cut diagonally from the 3″ score line to about 1″ from the top as per photo below.

Fold the score lines then flip the paper over and apply tear tape across the top. Flip paper back and then apply liquid adhesive to the drapes to keep them flat.

Classic Weave Ribbon was torn to make it thinner which also left a fringe. With the left over ribbon threads tie a bow and attach with a mini glue dot. Attach the ribbon to the DSP before adhering to the Soft Sea Foam mat card which is then glued onto the Flirty Flamingo base card.

Decorate card with cut out DSP flowers and die cut circle from Stitched Label Framelits. Yellow Share What You Love Artisan Pearls was used on the flower and the sentiment is from Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.

I hope that you have enjoyed your visit to my blog and liked my card. Now it is time for you to hop over to Su’s blog for more inspiration but don’t forget to leave me a quick comment before you leave..

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop- Masculine-April 2019

Hello and welcome to my blog and The Ink and Share Scrapbook blog Hop. Today we are showcasing Masculine layouts which I was pleased about because it’s my son Oliver’s 17th Birthday tomorrow. You may have joined me from Shirley’s blog and her great layout, so sit back with a cuppa and enjoy the rest of the hop.
Oliver has just bought his first car so I knew I had to use the Geared Up Garage Bundle of Stamps and Dies.

The only stamping was the car which was then coloured with Pacific Point Watercolour Pencil and a blend pen and the nuts which I stamped as part of the background.. The Designer Papers also match some of the dies, such as the cogs and petrol can which meant I didn’t have to fussy cut. The steering wheels were cut with the layering circle dies. The L on the learner plate was from the Large Letter Framelits. The key and spanner charms were attached using glue dots. As Oliver’s car is blue I needed to add some Pacific Point to the layout for the number (retired set but you can print and fussy cut them instead).

Oliver’s Hyundai I10 S

Please be aware that the following products are on the Retiring List and will be available until 3rd June or whilst stocks last. These are Letter Dies, Designer Paper and Ribbon.
I have listed the products I have used below for your information.
I hope that you’ve enjoyed your visit to my blog and my layout has inspired you to get this fab set. Please now hop over to by clicking the next button.

Kre8tors Blog Hop – Theme-Spring Colour Challenge-April 2019

Hello and welcome to this month’s Kre8tors blog hop, you may have joined me from Eva. We are a group of international demonstrators showcasing projects with a different theme each month. Today we have a challenge of using colours from the beautiful photo below. So sit back with a cuppa and enjoy the hop!

Yesterday I attended Onstage, Telford, UK which was one of Stampin’ Up! events held around the world. This is where demonstrators get together and view the up and coming products from the new Annual Catalogue and get inspiration by the way of swapping cards/ 3d projects with each other.

I took part in two organised swaps one of which was a Simple Stamped card and the criteria for this card was to use only one stamp set and three colours. I chose the Incredible Like You set as it makes beautiful cards which are easy to make and perfect for beginners. I was lucky to find out the colours I had used were perfect for this challenge.

for the blog hop card I added more layers and an extra colour. I also used the background stamp from Waterfront and added a yellow pearl.

I wasn’t allowed to use another stamp set or embellishments for my swap so I used Wink of Stella to create some sparkle. Unfortunately the photo doesn’t show it justice.

Here are the two cards together. For your information I have listed the products used below.

Kre8tors Blog Hop-Bye Bye Sale-a-Bration-March 2019

Hello and welcome to my blog. My name is Jacqui and I live in a rural village in the County of Suffolk in the UK. Today I am taking part in the Kre8tors blog hop for March. This is the last month of Sale-A-Bration 2019 (where you can earn free products on a qualifying £45 order) a group of international demonstrators are showcasing projects using products from the SAB range. You may of hopped over to me from Laura so put your feet up with a cuppa and enjoy our hop.

I have chosen the Home to Roost set as I think this is perfect for cards as well as 3d/home decor projects.

Just over a year ago I made some coasters for onstage team gifts and I thought that I would revisit my leftover coasters with this set. I stamped the cockerels on Whisper White Card with Momento black ink and coloured the images using my often over looked Water Colour Pencils. ( I managed to find some photos of painted plates to get some ideas for the different colours of the birds).

Because the acrylic coasters only take one layer of card I knew I couldn’t do a mat and layer however I needed a boarder of some sort so chose the lines from the new stamp set in the Spring/Summer Catalogue, Incredible Like You. The colours I used were Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody. The FAB-U-LOUS Stamparatus helped immensely with my stamping, but you can use normal clear blocks instead.

The coasters would make a great Birthday, Father’s Day or even New Home gifts and they were so quick and easy to make. For your information I have listed the products I have used below.

Ink & Share Scrapbook Hop – February 2019 – New Papers

Hello and welcome to February’s Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop. This month the theme is New Papers.. So put your feet up with a cuppa and enjoy our Hop.

You may have joined me from Sharon and her lovely layout. I have decided to use the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper which you can earn for free during Sale-A Bration with a qualifying £45 order. (This offer ends 31st February or whilst stocks last). As soon as I saw the papers I knew the perfect photo’s to use, pictures of my daughter with a friendly butterfly we encountered on a holiday in France a couple of years ago. Every evening it would flutter around us and then land on either Kezia or myself.

I also used the Butterfly Duet Punch for punching out the butterflies from the paper. Although this punch is unavailable at the moment I am pleased to announce it will be back in the new annual catalogue launching in June, so not too long to wait. The sentiment and antennas were stamped with stamps from the Butterfly Gala set again this is unavailable and fingers crossed we will see it in June.
However it would be easy to fussy cut round the images and draw the antennas on with a pen.

The word Friend was cut out in Balmy Blue card stock using a die from the new Well Written Framelit set ( You can buy this as a bundle with the Well Said stamp set and save 10% which is fantastic).

I hope you liked my layout and have given you some inspiration. I have listed the products I have used below for your information.
