How to use the Abstract Beauty Ephemera Pack

I love when there are pre-designed embellishments that can be popped out and glued to my project using Mini Glue Dots or my favourite adhesive, the Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The Abstract Beauty Suite includes a Ephemera Pack. 

The Abstract Beauty Suite is great for new and experienced stampers. Especially since it includes a cards & envelopes pack that includes 10 pre-printed cards and 10 envelopes that have pretty designs on the inside of them. You could cut apart the envelopes and use the designs on your cards instead of sheets from the Abstract Beauty designer series paper.
What do you think of this little collection? The gold on the vellum are my favourites in this pack but the flowers and leaves are cute together too. The pieces work well with the small brackets, x's and chevrons that are in the Hello Beautiful stamp set. 

Watch the video below to see how to create this card using the Abstract Beauty Suite. Stick around to the end to see all 7 cards I've created with this suit. 

Another card idea for you using the same products. The cute hearts were so easy to add to the card using Mini Glue Dots. I shared this card over on my Instagram, click here to watch the reel.

Celebration Card using Abstract Beauty Designer Series Paper

Have you tried stamping onto designer series paper? For this card you need one suite of products to create this card. Stampin' Up!'s Abstract Beauty Suite is fun and abstract-y. I know, not a word but it sounded good in my head. I'll just go with it. To create this card you could use the normal sized card base, which is half a sheet of cardstock but included in the Abstract Beauty Suite are the Abstract Beauty Cards & Envelopes. If you watch this Instagram Reel you can see that I started with one of the cards that has a black watercolour wash on it. For any of the cards you can either cover it up with pretty designer series paper (DSP) or add stamped image, pieces of DSP or die cut images.
This card is great for beginner stampers as you don't need to have a die cutting machine (the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine) to create it. If you haven't added the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine to your crafting stash then you may want to order individual pieces from this Suite. 
I love the bold designs in the Hello Beautiful stamp set. It is a Photopolymer stamp set, meaning you can see through the stamp to the paper you are stamping on. And you can, most times, layer 2 stamps onto 1 block for ease of stamping. I put two flowers on one block to stamp faster but it doesn't always work. If you are going to try two stamps on one block, I suggest stamping a few trial images first to make sure the stamp cleanly. Sometimes the thickness of the stamps can be a little different and that can cause images to not stamp nicely. 
The Abstract Beauty designer series paper is a special size. It's 4" x 6", which is just the right size to completely cover the card bases in the Abstract Beauty Cards & Envelopes or trim down the longer side to 5.25" and it's the perfect layering size for what I call normal card bases. This pack of DSP has some bright designs and some designs have a gold foil accent added to it. It's hard to chose my favourite design in this pack.
Stampin' Up! is offering free shipping for 24 hours on April 21, 2022! Any order of at least $100 before taxes will qualify for free shipping. Make up your wish list and check it twice to be ready for FREE shipping! Click here to place your order.

What A Year Pocket Scrapbook Page

Pocket page scrapbooking is my favourite way to preserve my memories. To me it's less daunting then tackling a 12" x 12" empty page. Using pocket pages you can add multiple photos that wouldn't fit together on a traditional layout. And it makes me remember flipping through old photo albums at my parent's place. There was a certain photo album that had 4" x 6" pockets in it and I'm sure it was a Techniques gray album, as in Panasonic Techniques. My family sold and repaired consumer electronics for many years and we primarily sold Panasonic products. The photos were slipped into the pockets and the plastic made this noise that I can still "hear" to this day! I wonder if my mom still has it? Do you have a memory of looking through photo albums when you were younger?
For these pocket pages I've used the What A Year Memories & More card pack. This pack is fun as it has a wide variety of designs. I did add some cardstock using colours listed on the card pack to add some extra interested to some of the pages but you could also use other card designs from the pack to accent your pockets.
The 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue retirement list is here and the What a Year Memories & More card pack is on it! Stock up on your favorite products before they’re gone for good!
