Scrapbooking with Love and Affection

Happy Wednesday everyone, a little mid week inspiration from my recent Scrapbooking Class this month.

At each class we create 3 layouts, usually using the same products for each layout.

Here's the first one....

As you can see, I will be adding my photo's and journalling later, I am waiting for my new Project Life stamp set to arrive to complete it!

Flirty Flamingo
Tip Top Taupe
Pool Party

As much as I was saddened to see the Word Window Punch retire last month, I have to say I am loving the new Classic Label punch, here I punched out my "Love Life" phrases.

Gifts made easy with Stampin' Up! cello bags

On Saturday I held a card making class called "Blooms and Wishes", named after one of our new stamp sets from the 2016/17 Annual Catalogue.

I love the watercolored finish of the images in the "Blooms and Wishes" set, they are really pretty.  You will find a picture of all of the images that are contained in the set below.

At these events I always like to make a little handmade treat for my ladies attending and I decided to use the new Cello Bags.

I made some little tags, stamped the leaf and flower images on then added my greeting, all from the same set, then punched a hole to tie them to my Cello Bags.  I centred the flowers using Rhinestones.

A really cute treat made simpler with the help of Stampin' Up!  Just think of the possibilities these little bags could contain!  Watch this space!

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!
