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.

Kre8tors Blog Hop- Valentines/Love – February2019

Hello and welcome to my blog. My name is Jacqui and I am an Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator based in the UK. Today I am taken part in the Kre8tors Blog Hop which is Valentines and Love. You may have joined me from Ilonka’s blog and her fab creations.

I have chosen to revisit the Window Box Thinlit dies to make a cute box and a matching card.

I took my colour combination from the beautiful All my Love Designer Series Paper of Flirty Flamingo, Lovely Lipstick and Whisper White.

I love how quick and easy you can make this cute hexagon box using the dies. There is also a choice of three decorative window panels to use. Being the month love I have used the heart panel. This was cut using Shimmery White and Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets. The hearts from the foil were used as inserts for decoration. I have also used a label from the Stitched Label dies. The Foil Sheets are one of the fabulous FREE products you can earn Free with a qualifying £45 order.

I wanted the card to tie in with the box so again I used the heart panel but this time cut it out from Whisper White Card to match the DSP. On both projects the panel has been layered up using the layering square dies and the word love is from the new Well Said dies which can be found in the Spring/Summer catalogue. There is also a coordinating stamp set which also comes as a bundle with a 10% saving. A little bit of Polka Dot Whisper White Tulle Ribbon finishes the card off nicely.

For your information I have listed the products I have used below.

Ink & Share Scrapbook Hop – Celebration – January 2019

Hello and welcome to my first Ink and Share Scrapbook blog hop. My name is Jacqui and I live in the small rural village of Thwaite which is on the Suffolk/Norfolk border in the UK. So grab a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy our hop.

You may have just hopped over to me from Shirley and her lovely page layout. Today we are showcasing Celebrations and I decided that I would create a page for my 20th Wedding Anniversary which myself and my husband Darren will be celebrating in July.

I love the new All My Love Designer Series Paper pack which is in the new Spring/Summer catalogue. Great for Valentines, Anniversaries, and other Celebrated occasions. Because I couldn’t decide which patterned paper to use I used paper strips which was perfect! One of the papers had hearts so I cut some of these to put onto the crumb cake layout to reduce the blank space..

I wanted to use a photo from our wedding day which was cut with an oval die. A label from the Stitched Labels framelits was cut in whisper white card and then adhered onto Soft Sea Foam card (this was then fussy cut so I had a mat layer). Mats using Soft Sea Foam and Lovely Lipstick card are ready for my yet to be taken photo.

The title and small hearts were cut using the gorgeous foil sheets (in Lovely Lipstick and Grapefruit Grove). These are one for the FREE products you can choose for orders of £45 during the Sale-A-Bration period. You get 8 sheets, 4 of each colour which is a fantastic offer. The dies used were Celebrate You and Large Letters. The Labeler Alphabet stamp set was used for the word “Years” and this was stamped in Balamy Blue ink. I wanted to have numbers on the page and these were cut in the Gold Glimmer Paper using dies but you could print out numbers and use them as a template.

For your information please see below the products I have used on this layout.

Kre8tors Blog Hop – Occasions/SAB TTT – January 2019

Hello and welcome to the first Kre8tors blog hop of the year! My name is Jacqui and I live in a small rural village on the Norfolk/Suffolk border in the UK.

You may have hopped to me from Laura Kate Mackie.  This month we are playing Tic- Tac-Toe or as we call it in the UK, Noughts and Crosses. The rules of the game if you don’t know is that we have to choose a line (horizontally, vertically or diagonally) and use the three products on your project. I decided to go diagonally – Sequins, Punch and Ribbon. Such fun!



I was lucky to receive the Wonderful Romance stamp set when I attended a Stampin’ Up! event called Onstage in November however I have only been able to order the matching framelits since the catalogue launch, so I was eager to have a play and not have to fussy cut the flowers. However if you buy the Stamp Set and Framelits together you save a fantastic 10% discount!

The colours I have used on my card are Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam, Fresh Fig and Whisper White. The lovely leaf and lattice border really make this card special. It looks great when using other colours as layers to make the card pop.

So for my three Tic Tac Toe products I used the leaf punch, variegated ribbon and pearls/frosted flower embellishments (well they are sort of sequins aren’t they?). I have listed all the products that I have used below for your information.

Kre8tors Blog Hop December 2018 – Christmas

Hello and welcome to the last Kre8tors blog hop of the year.  This month we are showcasing “Christmas*. You may have joined me from Pia Gerhardt.  For this blog hop I thought I would move away from my usual card or scrapbook page and venture into the world of Home Decor!  I had seen a Christmas plaque by another demo Julie Kettlewell and decided to put a Sign of Santa twist on it.

I inked the top of the plaque with Night of Navy.  First I sponged from the ink pad and then for the stubborn bits I sponged with the reinker. I drew round the heart on whisper white and then die cut scenes from the Hometown Greeting Edgelits.  I then ran the card through the Big Shot again with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder for the snow. Gold glimmer paper was cut and used as the light behind the houses.

Images from The Signs Of Santa set were stamped and coloured in using blend pens but of course you could use watercolour pencils,markers or ink and blends/aqua painter.. These were then cut out using the Santa’s Signpost Framelit Dies. The good news is if you buy the bundle of both the stamp set and dies you save 10%, the sad news is that this lovely set is retiring on 2nd January so you need to be quick before it sells out.  I glittered the images using Dazziling Diamonds for a bit of sparkle. I also fussy cut the snowman from the Santa’s Workshop DSP and punched some silver Glimmer Paper with the 1/8th hole punch (134365 £8.25) for the snowballs. Snowflakes from another retiring set Still the Night Stamp set were stamped onto the Night of Navy plaque using the  Frosted Shimmer paint.  Then adhere everything together using glue and Dimensionals.  Lastly ribbon was tied to string of the plaque.

I hope you like my Christmas plaque, below I have listed the products I have used.

Stamp n Hop November 2018 Blog Hop – Casing Annual Catalogue

Hello and welcome to my new blog on the Stamp n Hop November Blog Hop. My name is Jacqui and I am a UK based Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.. Today we are casing (copying) cards or projects from the Annual Catalogue. .

You may have joined me from the talented Jo Blackman.  I decided to case some of the cards from the Under The Mistletoe Suite which you will find on page 94. I love the variety of stamped images in this set

The first card is a small square card.The base card is 9.9cm x 19.8cm and scored at 9.9 cm. The layers of whisper white and DSP (Designer Series Paper).at 9cm & 7.5cm squared.  Elements cut  from the DSP were layered with ribbon. A circle which was cut with a circle die and Big Shot dies cutting machine was stamped .with images and sentiment.  

The next card is a standard A5 card which is 14.8 x 21cm, scored at 10.5cm. The DSP base is 9cm x 14cm and Whisper White base is 12.5cm x 8cm.  The banner is 2cm x 7.5cm and a fishtail was cut using snips.  The DSP strip is 2cm x 8cm.  Gold faceted gems were added to the banner for a bit of bling.The mistletoe, ribbon and senitment were stamped before being layered up.

For the final card I mounted a square card which is 8cm  (as in the catalogue) and then layered it on  A5 card using dimensionals.  The  Whisper White layer is 7.5cm squared and a ribbon bow was added. The bells were stamped on a piece of scrap card, fussy cut and then adhered to the stamped boughs.

Signs of Santa at Cuppa n Card

Hello and welcome to my blog. I thought you would like to see the card we made at Cuppa n Card yesterday.  It was a great quick card and so much fun to make and perfect to send in the post! The card was inspired by talented UK demo Sarah Jane Ray.

The base card is Old Olive, size A5 scored and folded in half. Whisper White mat card is 9.5cm x  14.8cm.  The images were stamped using momento black ink and then using a black pen I drew lines where I wanted the ground to be.  Then it was a case of colouring the images with pens.  I used Stampin’ Blend pens but you could use markers or ink/watercolour pencils with a paint brush and water.  To remove the oil left by your fingers from the card  wipe it with the embossing buddy (this will mean the glitter will only stick to the glue). Using fine line glue and glitter I created sparkling snow and the Pool Party blend pen gave it a bit of colour.

Above is a slightly stepped up version.  An extra mat layer of Cherry Cobbler Card  was added and then Whisper White card (which were torn to give rough edges and then layered up). Again glitter was added for sparkle.  The images were stamped, coloured and then die cut with the coordinating thinlit dies and Big Shot machine. ( You can buy the stamps 147690 £20 and dies 147911 £30 separately but you save 10% when you buy the Signs of Santa bundle!) these were then adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals to give a 3d look.

On both cards the Merry Christmas sentiment from Star of Light was used and one was die cut from Merry Christmas Thinlit dies and sponged with ink and then layered up to give dimension.

Below is the list of products I have used to crate both cards.
