May's Crop in Support of Relay For Life

Thank you for those that crafted this past Saturday at our all day crop in support of Relay For Life! I was able to work with May's Paper Pumpkin kit - Manly Moments and put labels on my new ink pads. It looked like a lot of others were busy creating all day as well!

Not sure why I didn't add journaling to my pocket page. These pictures are a few events rolled into one page since each event wasn't enough to do a whole page for. Except perhaps the bumper picture on the bottom middle. I might have to do a whole page on that one. That's when a new driver was practicing parking in the grocery store parking lot and hit the truck. Thankfully only the bumper was damaged but I think I'll go back and change this page. That's one of the perks of creating pocket pages! If I want to change or switch out something it is really easy to do that!

The 3D project this month is a small 3" x 4" mini album or thank you journal. Everyone could add as many cards as they wanted. You could also use the 4" x 6" cards from a Memories & More card pack to create a larger version. We used ribbon to tie all the cards together after they were hole punched in the top left corner but you could also use what I call clasp rings.

Lisa did an excellent job with the scrapbook page! Hard to believe she used two 4" x 6" cards to create the flora main piece on the left. And her son is an adorable subject to scrap about as well!

These 2 cards Lisa designed were made using the new Whisper White Memories & More cards & envelopes that will be available starting June 1st in the new 2018-2019 Annual catalogue. There are 2 packs of cards and envelopes: one that will fit the 4" x 6" cards and the other smaller pack will fit the 3" x 4" cards.

At each all day crop each attendee will receive a grab bag containing product from the catalogue. This product is then used to create the projects like the ones I've shared above. Please join us at our next crop on Sat June 23rd in support of Make A Wish. Deadline to register is June 14th. You can register following this link on Lisa's website or you can contact me directly!

Manly Moments Paper Pumpkin

Today at the crop I created projects using the Manly Moments Paper Pumpkin Kit. My first card followed the directions of the kit, aren't those mountains and trees great - pre-cut and sticky! Perfect card for Father's Day! And it was so simple to make!

In the kit there were some envelopes - solid on the outside and patterned on the inside, very awesome! Envelopes are great to cut up and use the patterned paper on a card! The strips of colour are cut from the bottom of the mountains and lake adhesive pieces (the other parts I used on another card).

You won’t want to miss June’s Paper Pumpkin kit! That’s because June’s kit coordinates perfectly with a whole suite of product in the new, upcoming Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog going live on June 1!

There is 1 week left to take advantage of the Share What You Love Bundles! You can purchase these bundles until May 31 but then when the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue is live on June 1 you can order these items individually.

This card was our Make & Take at my upline's monthly demonstrator meeting! A Z-fold card showcasing the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. When I was assembling the card it was a tough decision on which side of the paper to glue down to the card! I love that the flowers have a silver sheen to them, it really makes the card pop!

Love What You Do Frame

A few weeks ago at my upline's monthly demonstrator meeting Lisa had a great make and take during the meeting! She was wonderful to provide each of us with a great wooden frame. We covered it with our choice of the Share What You Love 12" x 12" Specialty Designer Series Pape. After I stamped the sentiment I coloured the heart in Cherry Cobbler to make it pop! At home I added some Fine Tip Glue to make the heart stand out more.

Creativity Starts Here - Paper Pumpkin!

I love April's Paper Pumpkin! The anchor and lighthouse! My coworker's birthday was the end of April and I made this card for her. Had to create a large enough card so that each person could write a greeting. Last year I created a regular 5.5" x 4.25" card with Whisper White flaps that opened, but this year I created a double card. Each card base was trimmed and then glued together to create the longer card - perfect for our birthday greetings!

April's Crop

Thank you all who participated in our April Crop in support of Partner's in Mission Food Bank, we raised $95.00. Next month we are supporting Relay For Life - details can be found here.

In this month's grab bag was the Bundle With Love Memories & More card pack. For the two projects I designed for our make and takes there is no stamping! The cards and stickers included in the card pack make this projects easy and quick! The blue elephant image on the bottom right pocket is punched from one of the 3x4 cards. This card pack has blue on one side and pink on the other! So the above pocket page can easily be created for a girl instead!

The box below was created using the envelope punch board and instructions were from another demonstrator: Sam Hammond Donald from the UK. We used the beautiful, thick designer series paper that was a Sale-A-Bration item this year. It was the perfect weight for the box but it was a little hard to score properly.

Lisa created the card and 12x12 scrapbook page. Love her card! The patterned paper is one of the 4x6 cards cut down and them stamped with the leaf. She finished off the card with the flamingo, a strip of paper from another of the cards in the pack and a punched greeting.

On her scrapbook page she changed the look of the cards by sponging the Very Vanilla with a blue ink. The Memories & More card packs are so versatile!

May's crop is fast approaching! We will be celebrating International Scrapbooking Day (it is today, May 5th but we are still celebrating!) and it's in support of Relay for Life! Check out the details over on Facebook and we look forward to seeing you there. Deadline for registration is May 14th.

Love What You Do Scrapbook Page

I shared this 12" x 12" scrapbook page during my Share What You Love Facebook Party the other night. This page idea was born from finding some strips of the Wood Textured Designer Series Paper on my crafting desk and they looked like wood strips you would lay for flooring!

Share What You Love Suite - Early Release!

The first card showcasing products from the Share What You Love Suite early release is from Onstage in London, Ontario last month. It was one of the 4 make and takes they had prepared for us to make! New designer series paper, ribbon, doilies and pearls! It's a hard choice but I like the doilies and pearls the best!

I love that the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper is carrying over to the next catalogue! This paper is perfect for so many projects. For the main watercolour wash and flowers on the piece at the back are stamped off as the Grapefruit Grove ink was too bright at full strength.

Did you have a chance to check out my Facebook party over on From Where I Stamp tonight? If you missed the fun make sure you head over there and like my page. I'll be hosting another Facebook event when the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue goes live on June 1!

And finally check out this video Stampin' Up! made that shows what is in each bundle. And if you would like to look at the products head over to my online store to view all the new products available now!
