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.

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.
