Hello! Annual Catalogue 2016 – 2017 Blog Hop Week 4


Welcome to the Hello! Annual Catalogue 2016-2017 Blog Hop! You’ll be hopping around 10 amazing Stampin’ Up!® Independent Demonstrators blogs, each with an inspirational project, featuring new catalogue products.

Currently you’re visiting Kerry from Gloucestershire in the UK Hello there! You  can continue hopping by using the previous and next buttons at the end of this post. 

Now, let’s scroll down to see what I’ve been making.
The "Love and Affection" stamp set was one of the first I received during the pre-order period and I fell in love with it straight away. It's been one of those sets that I really find hard to put down and I've created so many different projects for different occasions.

I've used lots of the stamps from the set to create my card, and used two of the new In Colours Flirty Flamingo and Dapper Denim.

Another new product featuring here are the Layering Squares Framelits Dies, and the first picture doesn't show it very clearly but I created an aperture to frame my flower and leaf spray.

Maybe you can see the aperture better in this picture. I love spots and chose this paper from the "Floral Boutique" Suite, these papers are just stunning, Navy and White, a perfect colour combo to add a "pop of bright"!

Can you see the Floral Boutique Washi Tape too? I've used nearly a whole pack already, you will find a strip along the bottom of my card stuck to a piece of whisper white cardstock. I've also used the co-ordinating Solid Bakers Twine and just had to order more as I was getting low!

A bit of Love and Affection for you today

So it's Thursday already, where is this week going to!

Today's snip of creativity uses a gorgeous new stamp set called

"Love and Affection"

This set contains an array of flowers, leaves, stems and greetings too and I've struggled to put it down as I've found it so useable.  It is part of the Affectionately Yours Suite consisting of stamps, papers, ribbons, wash tape and more products that co-ordinate with each other.

I'm also loving the new Floral Boutique Washi Tape and co-ordinating Solid Bakers Twine which ties lovey bows.

Lets face the "Weather Together"


I have felt so lost since I tipped a whole glass of water over my laptop, I tried to resurrect it submerging it in a box of rice but sadly it didn't make it!  I have an iPad but it's just not the same.

I had been pondering on a Macbook purchase and I guess it just accelerated my thinking, so here I am, back in the world of blogging!  I've so much to share with you!

I'm sharing with you a recent Shaker Card I made using a gorgeous new stamp set called Weather Together, a lovely set containing umbrellas and greetings and I love that we have a set of co-ordinating Framelits to go with it!




I used the new Layering Squares framelits to create a window, then stuck a piece of Window sheet behind it, adding adhesive foam tape to this before filling with my homemade confetti (I used lots of little punched out pieces from various punches I have), but of course we do have a lovely new Confetti Punch which would be much quicker!
