Kelly’s Blog Host Project

Image may contain: textHappy Saturday to all…..I hope you are keeping well?

With the world in various stages of social distancing, isolation or lockdown at the moment, the wonderful Kelly Kent has come up with a wonderful idea to share projects and bring joy to all.

Kelly has organised a blog host and I’m playing along.  That means we (those participating) all create a project and share at the same time.    Fun idea aye??

You can find a master list of Blogs on Kelly’s Blog.  So you can go through and have a look at what everyone has created.  And I will also endeavour to add a link to the next blog on the list at the bottom of this post….(after all the posts go live).

So What did I make??
Well in fact I’ve been quite busy in my craft room lately (one of the bonuses of social distance and almost isolation I guess).  So, I have a number of cards to share.

So here’s a few cards from my craft room:

Now, this is a Stamp set that I have been wanting to use for a while.  It’s called Capture the Good.  I mixed it up with my take of Bruno Bertucci’s scrap background.   I really like the bold colours.

This card layout was inspired by a card on Page 83 of the Annual Catalogue (the Giraffe one) and uses the Forever Blossoms Stamp Set.

Lastly, another Stamp Set I’ve been meaning to use…. Let it Ride!  The layout also started from the Sloth card on Page 83 of the Annual Catalogue.

All of these cards are already in the post – on their way to someone’s mail box, to spready joy, love and let them know I’m thinking of them.

If you are in lockdown or isolation, perhaps you can get crafting too.
A BIG big thank you to Kelly for Blog Hosting us, as we all adjust to life done differently.

Happy Stamping everyone!

Just Add Ink, Swaps, Team Events

SU Perth Regionals

I had a great day out today at the Stampin Up Perth Regionals.  It’s so nice to get together will like-minded friends to stamp and craft the day away. 

We saw loads of wonderful demonstrations and new techniques and ideas.  We also saw and played with new stamping products and colours.  It was great.  And I have a few pic’s to show you from my day.
From L to R – Alison, Me, Janet, Kerry & Jenny.  These lovely girls are in my downline.

The Klass Act Girls.  This is the Team that I belong too.  With our wonderful Leader Sarah Klass in the front (in the brown shirt to my left).

I was wrapped to catch up with these ladies…..we are all part of the Just Add Ink Design Team.  L to R Sarah, Jodene, Amanda, Me & Jan.

So as you can tell from these pics that a big part of Stampin Up and being a Demonstrator is meeting lovely people and making great Friends.

So what about the Stamping?   Ohh there was heaps of that.  We did some great Make n Takes using some of the new products and colours that have just been released.  So here they are.
This is a cute little Love Note card.



This is a lovely 6 x 6 Scrapbook page – I have stamped mine but not put it together yet because I want to put a pic on it first.

A cute box – which I have Stamped but not put together – so it would be easier to bring home. 

All of these projects use the Every Moment stamp set which is awesome for the Watercolouring and Masking techniques. 

When we go to a Stampin Up meeting most of us make up some cards to swap with others while we are there.  It’s a great way to meet each other – see new products, techniques and colour used and it also gives you a good amount of samples for you to show off. I made a few swaps to share.
Here are all my Swaps on the table before I left.
 This is the first one – I used the Big Shot to make the Background sheet.  The colours are Riding Hood Red, Wild Wasabi, River Rock.

This Brayered background is done in Baja Breeze and the Trees are stamped in Night of Navy.

This is another Brayered one…..which you might have seen before – cause I originally made it for a Just Add Ink Embossing Challenge in July.

The swaps I received were awesome.  And they will inspire me with great colour combos, techniques and layouts.  I’d like to say Thank you to all the ladies that swapped with me.  I received about 35 cards.  I have decided not to post them all today.  But will do another post soon showing you my swaps and other card ideas.
