Winter Beautiful Scrapbook Pocket Page

Last Friday I hosted a Facebook online workshop about the new Memories and More product line - specifically the new Color Theory card pack. The scrapbook page spread above was one of the samples I shared. The snowflakes were cut out using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits and the ombre 4x6 card is a piece of Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack. I will be hosting another online workshop using a different Memories & More card pack on Thursday July 13 from 8pm to 10 pm. 

Supplies
Stamps: Colorful Season
Colours: Dapper Denim, Marina Mist, Whisper White
Accessories: Color Theory Memories & More card pack, Seasonal Layers Thinlits, Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack

Copy and SWITCH

My upline challenged us to create a project by case'ing the Annual Catalogue and then switching up the stamp used on the card to something else! Very neat challenge!

This is the card from Page 152 of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue that I switched up. Instead of having a water coloured background I used the neat design from a sheet of the Color Theory Designer Series Paper. Using the same suite of products my stamps are from the Colorful Season stamp set.

Supplies
Stamps: Colourful Season
Colours: Berry Burst, Dapper Denim, Basic Black
Accessories: Whisper White Baker's Twine, Oval Framelit, Stampin' Dimensionals

June Crop - 2017 to 2019 In Colors

This past Saturday was our June Crop with Crop Kingston. This month we raised $100.86 for Crohns and Colitis Canada! It was great to see everyone that was able to make it this month. I hope you had a productive day.
It was so much fun sharing the new In Colors for our make and takes. I wasn't a fan of Lemon Lime Twist until I used it for the above pocket page layout. For the 4"x6" pocket I used the starburst stamp and Lemon Lime Twist for the background. It's a neat colour when stamped the second time without reinking it. And the new 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon is very smooth and lovely to use! It adds a nice division between the stamping and writing on the 3"x4" pocket.

A cute pocket to hold some goodies made using a 6"x6" piece of Designer Series Paper.

Lisa designed this really neat card. The Flower image is cut out from the Fresh Florals designer series paper - no stamping required! The only stamping needed was for the "Thanks".

Lisa and I create our projects without seeing what the other is creating. Our two scrapbook pages work so well together! I'm so loving the starburst stamp from the Lovely Inside & Out stamp set, it makes perfect background paper.

You can join us on Saturday July 8th in support of Loving Spoonful - sign up here by visiting Crop Kingston's Facebook page - we would love to see you there!

Supplies
Stamps: Lovely Inside & Out
Colours: Berry Burst, Powder Pink, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide, Night of Navy, Dapper Denim and Whisper White
Accessories: Ink Color ribbon, gems

In Colors and Lovely Inside & Out - Part Two

More cards that I made for May's Team meeting using new product! This is the second colour combo I picked out from Stampin' Up!'s suggested In Color combinations, and this combo includes my new fav colour - Fresh Fig.

This is my favourite card that I designed. The black looks neat embossed using the Hexagon 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions folder. This card was our make and take for the meeting.

And a second card using the same colours to show how versatile this stamp set can be!

Supplies
Stamps: Lovely Inside & Out
Colours: Fresh Fig, Sahara Sand, Soft Sky, Basic Black
Accessories: Hexagons 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder, Stitched Shaped Framelits, Clear Faceted Gems, Basic Black Baker's Twine, Stampin' Dimensionals

In Colors and Lovely Inside & Out - Part One

My upline Lisa asked me to create samples for the team meeting in May. She asked me to pick one of the new stamps that Stampin' Up! demonstrators can preorder this month. It was neat to try the new Lovely Inside & Out stamp set and the matching Lovely Woods Thinlits dies. During OnStage in April Stampin' Up! shared with demonstrators some colour combinations for the new 2017-2019 In Colors. I used some of their combinations for my cards.

Stamping Pool Party onto water colour paper makes it look like Mint Macaroon! A note about stamping on Vellum - it takes awhile for the ink to dry before you can adhere it to the card front.

The starburst in this stamp set reminded me of flowers. The easiest way to have a stem for the flowers was to use the branch from the new Colorful Season stamp set (another preorder product!).

Supplies
Stamps: Lovely Inside & Out, Colorful Season (for branches)
Colours: Tranquil Tide, Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Night of Navy
Accessories: Water colour paper, Vellum, Gold Foil Paper, 1-3/4" Circle punch, Stampin' Dimensionals
