It was great to see so many people at our first all day crop of 2018 this past Saturday! I look forward to each crop - the time away to be creative and spend time talking with friends. In two weeks we have our very first weekend retreat on Feb 9 to 11 - I'm starting to be really excited about it!! If you weren't able to make it to our first retreat we are working on the details for the next one so stay tuned!

The first project I'll share today is a pocket page. The 4x6 journal card was modified from the original card in the pack. Pink is so not my colour and the bottom of the card was pink. I cut around the flower and along the straight line to get rid of the pink band, then glued on a piece of Basic Grey cardstock to the bottom! The flower and the "hello" were shaded first with watercolor pencils and then a blender pen to create a watercolour look.

Very little stamping on the card. The birds and heart image is a 3x4 card cut out using the Big Shot and the Stitched Shapes Framelits. From the Heart is stamped in Calypso Coral from the Petal Passion stamp set.

Lisa designed the following 2 projects. First up a simple gift card holder using only items from the Petal Palette Memories & More card pack! One 4x6 and one 3x4 card with one of the large flower stickers on the back (which I should have taken a photo!) The birds and grass were coloured in using the Stampin' Blends.

I love everything about Lisa's scrapbook page! Especially the black and white photos. The Petal Palette Memories & More card pack has 2 cardstock sticker sheets that have the hearts on them and 2 accent sheets that include the words hello from the above pocket page and the smile from the scrapbook page along with other words diecut ready for you to use!

Registration is now open for our next all day crop on Saturday February 24th in support of H'art at St. Lawrence College. Click here to find out more details and to register!

Stamps: Petal Palette
Colours: Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette, Basic Grey

January's Paper Pumpkin is perfect for Valentine's Day! I put together one of the pocket cards the same day it arrived. It's adorable! Below is the unboxing video from Paper Pumpkin's YouTube channel.

Welcome to another wonderful Global Stamping Friends blog hop! Enjoy today's hop and everyone's fabulous projects.

It's one of my favourite times of the year! New products to play with and earn Sale-A-Bration rewards! For every $60 you spend you will receive a free Sale-A-Bration product! To download a PDF of the Sale-A-Bration catalogue click here. My project today uses the new Petal Passion Memories & More card pack and the Petals & More Thinlits dies.

The frame on the journal box was highlighted using Smokey Slate ink and an Aquapainter. Also used an Aquapainter and ink on the flowers to highlight then a bit. A piece of Always Artichoke cut out with the leaf bunch was added to the 4x6 card to create some dimension.

Here are some close up pics of the extras I added:

Blog Hop list:

Day 4 is missing a photo. I had sent pictures quickly off to Costco and hoped I had gotten the right ones. But it meant that I missed sending a few.

Mostly I tale horizontal pictures with my phone but this month I'm trying to take more portrait ones so that I can include all 4 different pocket page designs. Saying that, the picture at the gas station was taken horizontally. I made sure to crop it on my phone so that if would work with the other portrait photos I took that day.

Stamps: none
Colours: Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Lemon Lime Twist
Accessories: Merry Little Christmas Memories and More card pack, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper.

Even though Christmas is not too far away, I'm already looking forward to the new year and new catalogues!! Today I'm sharing some projects that I've designed for my application for display stamper for OnStage in April using products from the upcoming 2018 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogues.
My first card uses the Petal Palette stamp set, Petals & More Thinlits and the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper. Colours: Fresh Fig, Early Espresso, Whisper White

My first 3D item features the Lots of Lavender Sale-A-Bration stamp set and Special Celebrations stamp set from the Annual Catalogue. I spritzed the white pizza box with Crumb Cake ink and alcohol. It's finished off with a piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper and a piece of Silver Sequin Trim. Colours: Always Artichoke, Wisteria Wonder, Crumb Cake, Whisper White.

My second 3D item is a decorated acetate box featuring my favourite new stamp set: Magical Day! The adorable knight was coloured in with water colour pencils and an aquapainter. The bricks were coloured in with Stampin' Write markers. Colours: Bermuda Bay, Smokey Slate, Basic Gray, Silver, Whisper White.

This card uses a piece of the new Sale-A-Bration Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series paper. The yellow design look just like honeycomb! A little bee from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits completes it! Colours: Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Basic Black.

This card uses Petal Palette Memories & More card pack (with its fabulous stickers!). The smile is a cut-out that comes with the card pack that I sponged with Calypso Coral ink. I also sponged the little heart sticker. Colours: Calypso Coral, Basic Black, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette.

My scrapbook page is my last project and it uses the Petal Passion suite. These pictures are from my parent's 25th Anniversary in 2005. The flowers and leaves were coloured in using Watercolor Pencils and a blender pen. The lovely word is a cut-out embellishment included in the Petal Passion Memories & More card pack. Colours: Island Indigo, Whisper White, Silver, Basic Black, Old Olive, Smokey Slate, Vellum.

Happy December! Welcome to my blog and I hope you are enjoying everyone's fabulous projects! Today I am sharing my set-up for December Daily using Stampin' Up!'s Merry Little Christmas Memories & More card pack and the Merry Little Christmas suite. This is my 4th year doing December Daily. If you are unfamiliar with December Daily it is a daily memory keeping of events in December, mostly centered on Christmas celebrations and preparations, I first came across this idea from Ali Edwards. I've always done Dec 1 to Dec 31, the whole month and a perfect way to end the year with New Year's Eve!

Here are some of the elements that will be used this month: album, photo pocket pages, and Merry Little Christmas Memories & More card pack. My goal is to have this completed by mid January 2018, with pictures cropped and edited on the weekends for the previous week, printed maybe 3 different times throughout the month at Costco. I already have the numbers cut out in different colours.

This will be my title and day one page. The bottom 2 4x6 pockets are reserved for photos I'll take today. As the month goes on I should be able to plan some pages ahead of time but I find that if I do too many ahead then I change my mind and get frustrated that I have to redo some of the work I've already done!

A close up of the date pocket and filler card. It's hard to tell but the holly and leaves (a sticker from one of the two sticker sheets included in the Memories & More card pack) on the Fa la la card are popped up on a mini dimensional.

And here is day 2 and 3. Some pages I will split into 2 days but sometimes if I have a lot of photos it might spread over 2 pages or more! It all depends on what we do this month.

Stamps: Carols of Christmas, Labeler Alphabet
Colours: Old Olive, Basic Black, Lemon Lime Twist, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Merry Little Christmas Memories and More card pack, Black Faux Leather 12" x 12" Album, 12" x 12" Pocket Pages, Large Number Framelits, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, Copper Foil Paper, Stitched Shapes Framelits

I hope you will check back with me every week to see what I've done and that you enjoy the rest of the blog's in today's hop! Thanks!

Hello and welcome! Today I am participating in a global blog hop with other Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world. This month's theme is Anything But A Card and since I love pocket page scrapbooking I just had to share this one:

Lovely as a Tree stamp set is so versatile! The pine tree was perfect for a watercolour technique for this pocket page. After inking the pine tree with Emerald Envy ink I spritzed it with water and then stamped onto the watercolour paper. That created the darker more smooched trees. For the other versions I inked up the stamp, stamped it on my grid paper and then spritzed it with water before stamping on the watercolour paper. It's fun to try different combinations of ink saturation and water saturation! To get the splatters I used my Aquapainter and Emerald Envy ink and tapped the Aquapainter to spray the colour onto the watercolour paper. After it was dry, Wink of Stella was added to give the trees some shimmer.

Stamps: Lovely As A Tree
Colours: Emerald Envy, Whisper White, Tranquil Tide, Basic Black
Accessories: Watercolour paper, Basic Black Bakers Twine, Layering Circles Framelits, Seasonal Layers Framelits, Lovely Words Thinlits, Wink of Stella, Aquapainter, Memories and More Journal Pens, Softly Falling Textured Embossing Folder

Thank you to all you participated in Saturday's crop, we raised $100 for Run for the Cure! What's even more fantastic? The amount of money that has been raised over the past two years for all the charities we've supported is: $3,344.31 - wow and thank you from both Lisa and I!
This month we featured the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper. This pack has a lot of different patterns that work so well with many different projects. On my pocket page there is very little stamping except for the title.

The gussetted cellophane bags from Stampin' Up! are perfect size for oreo cookies! Add this dragonfly tag on top and it's ready to give away to a friend.

Lisa created these 2 projects. Her card would be perfect for any occasion. No need to add a sentiment on the front - your hand written note inside will say it all!

Lisa's scrapbook page features multiple designs from this paper pack and I like how her design pulls your eye to the photo. 

We have 2 Crops planning in October!

Catchy post title, eh? Did I get you to laugh? Today's page is all about Hoover and his stick fetching he loved doing in water. Only time he would swim! I love pages with lots of photos. On one hand it saves cards from the pack for other layouts and on the other hand it makes for a nice simple page. Simple pages are great when you have many photos to scrap.

Stamps: none
Colours: Marina Mist
Accessories: Color Theory Memories and More card pack

We had a fantastic time at this month's crop! And we raised $331 for Kingston Animal Rescue. Fantastic to see so many people come and craft for the day. I was able to work on scrapbooking pictures from 2008.

This month, in the grab bags, we included the Perfect Days Memories & More card pack. I'm so in love with this card pack! The 2 projects I designed (the card and the 3D item) have greetings from the card pack and no stamping! What?! For the card I used a 3"x4" card that had TODAY on it and added some stickers that are included with the Memories & More card pack. This was the perfect card for my husband's birthday earlier this month.

Tag toppers are so easy to create. Fill up a cellophane bag with some rockets, tie it close, then adhere the tag! The 3"x4" card is a perfect size to create a tag.

This month Lisa designed the scrapbook page and the pocket page! She did a great job with both pages and her little guy's pictures work great with this card pack. On the pocket page's 4"x6" card she coloured each has word separately to make it stand out - a great idea!

Please join us on Saturday September 16th in support of Run for the Cure sign up here by visiting Crop Kingston's Facebook page - we would love to see you there!

Stamps: None!
Colours: Emerald Envy, Lemon Lime Twist, Basic Black, Soft Sky, Tranquil Tide

Tonight I'm hosting a Facebook Memories & More Party on my page - check it out here:

On this layout I've dressed up a few of the cards to show what you can do with the Color Theory Suite! For the main 4x6 card I took one of the cards that says "Things I love this Autumn" and covered the words with a piece of Color Theory Designer Series Paper and the circle with the new saying/title to change it to a summer card. I liked the lines on the card but of course autumn wouldn't work with these very summer photos!

One of the 3x4 pockets was left alone but for the summer memories pocket I made a mistake cutting up a 4x6 card and to save the sentiment it was trimmed down, edged with Soft Suede card stock and mounted on a Crushed Curry 3x4 card from the pack.

Stamps: Colorful Season
Colours: Soft Suede, Crushed Curry, Basic Black
Accessories: Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack, Seasonal Layers Thinlits, Layering Circles Thinlits, Stampin' Dimensionals

Here is one of the 3 pocket pages we made at Thursday's Christmas in July class. I love the Perfect Days Memories and More card pack so I featured it dressed up with the Pretty Pines Thinlits to show the diversity of how this card pack can be used. This page would be great for Christmas photos but also for photos with wintery theme as I've done.

Stamps: none
Colours: Emerald Envy, Lemon Lime Twist, Basic Black, Silver Foil Paper and Silver Glimmer Paper
Accessories: Pretty Pines Thinlits
