The bundle has the Broadway Birthday stamp set and the Broadway Lights framelits. This months class also features a little sneak peak from the upcoming Holiday catalogue (coming September 5th).

The story of the catch up

So last night was my first blog post back (Yay!!) after my amazing incentive trip last month. My blogging break was a little longer than expected as I had a bad case of Vertigo upon arrival back in Australia. It kind of knock me out for a couple of days, then a slow road back to the land of no-spinning and steady feet! Thankfully, I’m almost all good now and my mojo is coming back too!

So I thought I’d do a quick wrap up of projects from the last little while to catch up.

First up – I thought I’d share a sneak peak. But this is a sneak peak of a different kind. You’ve seen these products before, so nothing new there. But this project will feature in another post I am currently writing about my Incentive trip experience. That post is coming soon, but I thought I’d share the swap I made for the trip, which went to 25 demonstrators around the world.

Next, upon returning home, my pre-order for this months exclusive bundle, Blended Seasons, was waiting for me. While it had to wait longer than expected before I could use it, this is one of the cards I have made.  This is an exclusive limited time bundle (only available during August 2018) as well as those gorgeous set of new shades in Watercolour pencils. View the products here. Here I have coloured the background of my Whisper White cardstock in Balmy Blue pencil, so that my flowers stayed white.

This card does feature a sneak peak – it’s the new Corrugated embossing folder coming in the Holiday Catalogue next month!!

Shortly after arriving home, I enjoyed one of the perks of being a demonstrator – Pre order of new catalogue products!! I just love that we get to see, order and play with new products first!

In the Holiday catalogue starting next month, is a new favourite. At least, I know these are going to be a favourite, as they are just an awesome product. It’s the new Foiled Edge cards and envelopes! Hellooo…. instant bling!! They come in packs of 20 in both gold and silver. Here, I have teamed up the gold ones with some of the gorgeous Broadway Bound suite of products.

With a trip like we have just enjoyed, I have a list as tall as me of all the Memories & More album making and Scrapping to do!! Here is one page I made recently of my gorgeous princess on her “Princess for a Day” experience that she enjoyed at Disneyland. I just love how you can make embellishments from Stampin’ Up!’s stamps and dies, to adorn pages, without adding to much bulk and fuss.

There is more to this Disney story too and a page 2, so stay tuned!

So this brings us to last week. I’m busy preparing for a papercraft expo for this weekend. One of the displays I have made showcases how you can use Stampin’ Up! papercraft products to make just about anything your mind imagines. I found this cute frame in a store, I liked the shape but frame on the inside was quite plain. Perfect!!

So I covered the photo matte and the sides with some new woodgrain design pattern paper coming in the Holiday catalogue – Festive Farmhouse. Oh my lordy, I’ll be buying more of this gorgeous pack. Because it is sized at 12×12, it was easy to cover the backing matte in one piece too.

I added a different pattern for the floor from our regular Woodgrain Textures 6×6 pack and some Whisper White for the ceiling. I finished off the frame with a few simple embellishments: the bell is from this months Blended Seasons bundle and is coloured with the new Real Red Stampin’ Blends. I also used Blends to colour some of the larger Rhinestones, and grouped them together so they look like berries in the Boxwood wreath, which I have unravelled and arranged like a garland.

The star at the top is a new paper clip embellishment coming in the Holiday catalogue too, along with that gorgeous die cut “Christmas”. You’ll be seeing a lot more of that set, I can tell you now.

Last but not least a simple box of treats. Here I have dressed up a clear mini treat box with some Designer paper and a few various trims. A simple idea like this and few minutes of your time, turns a pack of lollies into a little gift with some care and thought. When you want to say a simple “thank you”, this is a great way to express your appreciation. It says just as much about you as it does the person you are thanking.

So this brings us up to today, where I have a few more thank yous to create and many more Christmas ideas flowing into my imagination. So stay tuned for more on some of these projects here and all the new ones I’ll be bringing you soon.

CTC192 – Tranquil Textures

CTC-BlogBanner

I’m so excited to be back hopping with the amazing girls from Caseing The Catty. This week we are drawing inspiration from the Tranquil Textures suite and up to page 163.

CTC192

This week, I was inspired by this card design…

2018_AC_P157

 

I really like all the layers in the stamping in this card, this is where the texture is. Even though I didn’t use quite so many layers, I combined mine card with strength in colour, so I felt it didn’t need as many.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Floral Frames, Foliage frame framelits

Here I changed out the main element for the ever amazing Foliage Frames framelit set and the coordinate stamps, Floral Frames.

I opted to keep it neutral by using shades of the same hue and then add just a zing of colour. So used some Tranquil Textures Designer paper coordinated with some Granny Apple Green (which is fast becoming a favourite! I don’t even know when I started liking greens!!)

I did add some texture style stamping in the background using Timeless Textures and some Granny Apple Green and Soft Seafoam inks.

My zing of colour is Lovely Lipstick. I’ve added a layer of cardstock beneath the white, which I have made appear so very thin. I have also stamped and punched some flowers in Lipstick which I have layered beneath the main sentiment element. I have tucked them in underneath so they are only just peaking out. Then I have used this on my sentiment also.

Next up on the hop is Sandra Collett.

CTC-Next

After you’ve enjoyed the awesome hop with the team, I’m looking forward to seeing your CASE over in our challenge group. Be sure to load up your creation by 6pm next Sunday night, August 26th.
