Project Life Scrapbook page

August 22, 2016
010

This coming Friday night is my Memory Keeping Class.  This is so much fun, especially for me.  I get to play while everyone else makes their own pages or even creates some cards.  Everyone who attends will get the product to create this scrapbook page or they can use the pieces any way they wish.  This page makes me smile, because it reminds me of the fun we had with Ethan and Noah when we celebrated  their birthday’s with a special lunch.  The looks on their faces while they are enjoying their drink says it all.

I used a couple of cards from the Project Life Love Story Card Collection (retired) to create this page and followed a scrapbook layout I found on Pinterest.  I cut two 6 x 4″ cards to create the central panel and used a left over piece to create the banner underneath the title.  I cut the word “happy” four times from Whisper White card using the Hello You Thinlits Dies and glued them one on top of the other to create a thick embellishment.  I think it makes the title really pop on the page, don’t you?  The 3″ x 4″ filler card is also from the Love Story Card Collection (retired).  To create the background, I punched Window Sheet using the 3/4″, 1″ and 1-1/4″ Circle Punches and then used this to add White Craft ink to the Basic Black 12″ x 12″ page.  The journal panel was created by stamping Whisper White card with the Writing Notes Background stamp using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I used the Layering Circle Framelits to cut the circle as well as the Basic Black Scalloped layer.  I will add my journalling on Friday night.

You can get more details regarding this class on my Workshop and Classes page.

Flourishing Christmas

August 16, 2016
006

I have been working on cards for my September Class which will feature the Flourishing Phrases product bundle and I had a little play with the large flourish image to create a Christmas card.  I stamped the greeting from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set onto the bottom right hand corner of Whisper White card and attached it to scored and folded Crumb Cake card.  I embossed a piece of Old Olive card using the Holly Embossing Folder and attached it to the left hand side of the card front.  007I stamped the large flourish from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then used Real Red and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers to colour the image. 008 I attached the stamped panel to Real Red card and then the card front using dimensionals.  Lastly I added medium Basic Rhinestones to the image.

Inside the card I added a piece of Old Olive card once again embossed using the Holly Embossing Folder and added a greeting from the Peaceful Pines stamp set using Real Red ink.

I am really impressed with just how versatile this particular stamp set and matching Flourish Thinlit Dies really are.  If you haven’t been inspired previously to purchase these products, perhaps this card might be the one to convince you of its worth.

Happy Day

August 12, 2016
012

Here is a quick and easy card for any man in your life.  This is one I created for my class this week at Beachmere.  I stamped the greeting from the Perfectly Wrapped stamp set using Early Express onto the bottom right hand corner of Very Vanilla card.  I attached a strip of Early Expresso Designer Series Paper from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack to the left hand side before attaching to scored and folded Early Expresso Card. 013 I stamped the boots from the Country Livin’ stamp set onto Crumb Cake card using Early Expresso ink and sponged around the edges uses Crumb Cake ink.  The image panel is attached to Early Expresso card and then the card front using dimensionals.

014To decorate the inside panel, I stamped the image from the Timeless Textures stamp set across the bottom of Very Vanilla card using Crumb Cake ink.  The boot image is stamped onto the left hand corner using Early Expresso ink.

All in all a really simple card.  I have to admit that this is one stamp set that I was drawn to immediately when I saw the new catalogue.  It has three images – the boots, a guitar and a gorgeous old truck – perfect to represent our beautiful outback Queensland.  Of course, I also thought of my grandson and husband who are both pretty good guitar players!  I can see these images featuring in my project life pages, especially the ones about our travels in outback Queensland.

What do you think of this stamp set?  Will it make it onto your wish list or have you already purchased it?  I’d love to know.

Funky Birthday

August 9, 2016
009

I created this card after seeing a card sketch somewhere on the internet.  I liked the general idea and although I did change it up a bit, I love the final result, fun and a little bit off beat!  I layered Whisper White card onto scored and folded Crumb Cake card.  I wrapped a square of Old Olive card with Whisper White Thick Baker’s Twine to represent a “present”. 010 I stamped the greeting from the Suite Sayings stamp set onto a small piece of Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I added another piece of Whisper White card and assembled the three pieces onto Crumb Cake Card, the “present” is on dimensionals. 011 I punched small balloons from Old Olive, Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight card using the Balloon Boutique Punch and attached them to the Whisper White card.  I stamped the greeting from the Confetti Celebrations stamp set onto Whisper White card using Tangerine Tango ink and cut it out using one of the Stars Framelits Dies.  The starry greeting is added to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped another greeting from the Confetti Celebrations stamp set onto Whisper White card.

I love how this turned out, a really fun card for any age.

First Christmas Card

August 7, 2016
0012

It’s that time of year when I start adding one Christmas card to my Beachmere Class each week.  By the end of the year, we all have quite a stash, more than enough to cover our needs.

I also wanted to showcase the beautiful Thoughtful Branches stamp set and matching Beautiful Banches Thinlits Dies which will be available for purchase on the 2nd August.  This is a limited time stamp set 2-31st August but only while stocks last, so don’t delay in placing your order if you want this gorgeous stamp set and matching thinlits.0022

I stamped the greeting from the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of Whisper White card using Crumb Cake ink.   A strip of Crumb Cake card is attached to the left hand side of the stamped card and then the whole piece is embossed using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. 0032 I wrapped the top of the embossed card using some retired Real Red Cotton Ribbon and attached the panel to scored and folded Cucumber Crush card.  I stamped the trees from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set onto Whisper White card using Cucumber Crush ink, cut them out using a Layered Oval Die and attached them to a Cucumber Crush Scalloped Layered Oval card.  The panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.  I tied a bow in another piece of the Real Red Cotton Ribbon and attached it to the card front using a glue dot.  To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the trees once more on the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card.

I absolutely adore this Thoughtful Branches stamp set and Beautiful Branches Thinlits Dies.  It is so versatile and if you love Pinterest, you can see a million uses for this set – really has to be a million.  I’d love to know what you think.

Bye for now,

Playful Balloons

August 4, 2016
016

This is another card which will feature in my August Classes.  I have seen many cards like this on Pinterest and decided to create one of my own.

I added Playful Palette Designer Washi Tape diagonally to a narrow strip of Whisper White card and attached it to scored and folded A4 Thick Whisper White card.  I stamped the greeting from the Painter’s Palette stamp set onto the bottom of a strip of Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink017The stamped strip and another strip of Whisper White card have narrow strips of Basic Black attached behind one long edge and are then attached to the card front using dimensionals.  The Whisper White pieces of card, cover the edges of the Washi Tape panel – very clever.  I used the Balloon Builders Punch on Basic Black card, Emerald Envy card and Peekaboo Peach card.  018I embossed each balloon using the Boho Chic Embossing Folder (Basic Black), the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder (Emerald Envy) and Lucky Stars Embossing Folder (Peekaboo Peach).  I attached a length of Linen Thread to the back of each balloon before attaching to the card front.  The Basic Black and Emerald Envy balloons are attached using Glue Dots and the Peekaboo Peach balloon using dimensionals.  I tied another length of Linen Thread around the balloon strings and added a Glue Dot to the back of the bow to hold it in place. To decorate the inside of the card I simply added three rows of the Playful Palette Designer Washi Tape.  I love this card, what about you.  You can find more details about the August Class on my Classes and Workshop page.

Remember if you want to attend this class then please let me know as soon as possible so that I can reserve your place.

An Expression of Love

July 24, 2016
004

I was working on cards for my classes next month which feature the Painter’s Palette product suite and thought I would share this card with you.

I added a piece of Basic Gray Designer Series Paper from the  Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack to the lower half of Whisper White card, wrapped the join with Flirty Flamingo 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon and tied a knot. 005 I stamped the greeting which is from the Painter’s Palette stamp set using Basic Gray ink onto the top right hand corner and then added the whole piece to scored and folded Basic Gray card.  I stamped the easel image onto scrap Whisper White card using Basic Gray ink, cut it out and attached it to the card front using dimensionals.006  I stamped the stem image from the Wild About Flowers stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Always Artichoke ink and added the flowers using Flirty Flamingo ink.  I cut the flowers using a Layering Squares Framelits Die to fit into the centre of the easel image.

Inside the card I added a narrow piece of Flirty Flamingo card behind more of the Basic Gray Designer Series Paper before attaching it to Whisper White card.

I love how soft and pretty this card is – so feminine.  What do you think?

Bye for now,

Kris
