Facebook Live with Lots of Happy Card Kit

I had fun sharing what was included in the Lots of Happy Card Kit and creating this beautiful card.

Below is a picture of what is included in this kit:
You may wish to have Blender Pens or an Aqua Painter to change the look of the watercolour pencils but they are not required to complete the Lots of Happy Card kit.

You can watch me show what is included in this kit and create one of the cards:

I will be back for my regular Thursday night Facebook lives starting September 12th over at www.Facebook.com/FromWhereIStamp

August Crop - In Support of Kingston Animal Rescue


Thank you to all that join us this past Saturday for our August crop in support of Kingston Animal Rescue.

I had so much fun creating this month's card and pocket page for the crop! There was some fussy cutting for the flowers from the designer series paper. The only stamping on my projects were the greetings/title.


Lisa created the next two projects. I love both of her projects! Up first is a pretty pillow box that is perfect for a gift card or cash or chocolate!

And her scrapbook page! These are awesome photos but the page design enhances them perfectly!

I hope that you can join us next month at our Crop Kingston all day crop in support of Breast Cancer Action Kingston. Registration is $30 and sign up due by September 7th. See the links below to sign up for our September crop and our October Fall Weekend Retreat (registration open until Sep1).

Summer Sailboats

A fun summer card that is perfect for a birthday or just because. This was one of the card designs that we made at August's Cards & Chocolate class. Most of the cards we made were beach inspired as I'm dreaming of sitting on a beach along the ocean! Join us on the second Wednesday of every month for Cards & Chocolate class (details are below for September's class).

To create this card the Basic Gray panel is embossed using the Subtle Embossing Folder but I stamped the Thinking of You sentiment before embossing the cardstock. We stamped the sailboats and the sun using Momento ink then coloured them in with Stampin' Blends. Its best to colour behind the ships using a Light Pool Party Stampin' Blends as otherwise the ships seem to be floating in the air instead of the ocean!

Supplies
Stamps: Lilypad Lake
Colours: Calypso Coral, Basic Gray, Thick Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay
Accessories: Stampin' Blends in various colours, Decorative Label Punch, Rhinestones, Stampin' Dimensionals, Subtle Embossing Folder, Bird Ballad designer series paper

Unboxing Holiday Catalogue Preorder!

Almost two weeks ago I did an unboxing video of my Holiday Catalogue preorder and created today's card using new product! Now all I want to create is Christmas and wintry projects! It's been very hard not to use them for everything right now when it's still summer!

To create this card I used the Hammered Metal 3D embossing folder for the card base, then punched those cute trees using the Pine Tree Punch with the Wrapped in Plaid designer series paper. The Wrapped in Plaid designer series paper has great designs that can be used for more than Christmas or Holiday projects. I hope that you are excited about these products as well!

Watch the Holiday Catalogue unboxing Facebook Live here: (you will see all the new designer series paper - I love it all!)
 

Supplies
Stamps: Perfectly Plaid
Colours: Shaded Spruce, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
Accessories: Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper, Pine Tree Punch, Tailored Tag Punch, Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder

Just Breathe Scrapbook Page

Love this page! When I started creating this page I knew that I wanted these 3 pictures on the same page and that one of them would be smaller. Before putting things together I pulled out 2 stamp sets, different colour of foil sheets and the Come Sail Away designer series paper hoping that everything would work together in the end AND it did!! It's always great to make a page you like when you start off not knowing how to get it done!

The smaller photo ended up being 3" x 3", the other two photos were left at 4" x 6". I used Mango Melody, Basic Gray and Gray Granite to mat the photos. Before stamping the trees in the bottom left corner I stamped it on a scrap piece of paper before stamping on my page so that the trees were lighter.

If you missed the Facebook Live where I created this page you can watch it here:
Make sure to join me on Thursday evenings at 7pm Eastern for my weekly Facebook Live: www.Facebook.com/FromWhereIStamp

Supplies
Stamps: Into the Woods, Colorful Season
Colours: Mango Melody, Very Vanilla, Gray Granite, Basic Gray
Accessories: Champagne Foil sheet, Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, Rhinestone, Stampin' Dimensionals

Global Stamping Friends - Extraordinary Anniversary

Welcome to today's Global Stamping Friends Extraordinary Blog Hop - celebrating the group's 3 year anniversary! So naturally the theme is Anniversaries. I hope that you will click through everyone's blog to see their wonderful creations.


This challenge was a little tough for me. I went looking for pictures of my husband and I on our anniversary but cannot find any that were not scrapped already! So I've created this card to give to him this November for our 20 year anniversary of being together. Our wedding anniversary was in June and I didn't make him a card - gasp! So this will be perfect! This card has many different elements from the Come Sail Away Suite: designer series paper, memories & more card pack, and trinkets. I love how all these elements work so well together! You can check out my online store to view this suite here: https://www.stampinup.com/ecweb/products/201012/come-sail-away?demoid=2157916

Supplies
Stamps: None
Colours: Soft Suede, Mossy Meadow
Accessories: Come Sail Away Memories & More card pack, Sail Away Trinkets, Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, Glue Dots, Linen Thread, Stampin' Dimensionals

Thank you for stopping by today! Next you head over to Tricia Butts' blog to see her wonderful project.

Origami Sailboats

Hello! For July's team 3D creative challenge I created these origami sailboats. Thankfully Google search helped me find directions. The larger sailboat was started with a 8.5" x 11" piece of designer series paper whereas the small sailboat started with a 5.5" x 8" piece of designer series paper. I recommend that you use a Bone folder to create crisp folds to make it easier to fold your sailboat.


The inspiration from these sailboats was from a few projects I found on Pinterest.

Supplies
Stamps: None
Colours: Night of Navy, Balmy Blue, Mossy Meadow
Accessories: Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, Tear Tape, Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker's Twine, wooden stick
