Thank you so much for dropping by.  It is always very much appreciated.

Today I am sharing our Create Weekly #19 Sketch layout.  I share a layout each Sunday & the on the Monday a video is shared creating a card with the layout along with 1 or 2 alternate ideas.  They are always nice & easy which is what it is all about plus it’s a great way of getting your mojo going with the added bonus of being lots of fun.

For my card today I played with one of everyone’s favoutite- the Hues of Happiness Suite which is in the Annual Catalogue.  Even though I am not a Bright’s person, I am loving all the bright colours in this Suite.

The Base Card is Pool Party & teamed up with the lovely So Saffron flower which has been die cut from the gorgeous DSP.  Don’t you love it when we can do that?

By clicking on the link below, you will be able to see 2 alternate ideas created with the same sketch layout.

Thank You is our theme for the hop.  Many of us don’t take the time to thank the ones we love or care about.  It can be the simple things that they do for us each day or big things that they have done recently.  It is so important to say thank you and show our appreciation for the hard work of others and the kindness that they show.

I love creating this type of card & posting them off in the mail or leaving them in my neighbours letterboxes.  Do you know of anyone you can this?type of card to?  I’m sure they would appreciate it.

As the gorgeous Nature’s Prints Bundle was still sitting o my desk from a previous project, I thought why not?

This Bundle is one of my favourites from the Annual Catalogue & one that I must admit have not used much.

See the Ribbon?  It is the lovely Starry Sky Metallic Woven which blends in perfectly with the Night of Navy Ink & Cardstock.

Butterfly Kisses Suite by Stampin’ Up

G’Day Friends,

We played around with the fun & bright Best Butterflies Suite in our Stamp & Create FB Live yesterday.

Each week, I post a Sketch Layout where we create our project using the layout.

I thought it would be fun to showcase an alternate way of creating a very easy Fun Fold using the Sketch Layout.

I will be honest & say I didn’t really look at this Suite from the Annual until recently.  After playing with it for a few days even creating a bright Cards to GO! Kit with it, I’m happy to say that I am loving it so much.  So much fun!

Click on this link to watch the video on how I created my card.  I also show you another version created with the Same Suite & Sketch Layout.

Inspirations in Ink July Blog Hop

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for dropping by & welcome to our monthly Inspirations in Ink Blog Hop.

We’re a small group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world who come together each month to showcase a theme & share inspiration for you to create.

You may be starting with me, Vicky Wright Australia or have come from Theresa’s blog where she shared her lovely project.  Don’t forget you can visit all the other blogs on today’s hop by clicking on the Blog Roll at the bottom of this post.

Our theme this month is Christmas in July.  This is the chance to make a start on your Christmas cards ready to post the end of November, early Decemeber.

As our July Mega PDF Tutorial Bundle is all about the gorgeous Splendid Day Suite, I challenged myself to create a Christmas card with this Collection.  In fact, after doing this one, lots of ideas have popped into my mind so who knows you could be seeing more Christmas cards with this Suite or even mixed with a little of this & a little of that.

I decided to keep my layout fairly simple with a little random stamping with Sahara Sand & Soft Sea Foam Inks.  This layer was then layered onto Sahara Sand & the to a Soft Sea Foam Base Card.

The sentiment is from Inspired Thoughts, stamped wth Sahara Sand Ink before being die cut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

The card has been finished off with a couple of the lovely Brushed Metallic Dots.

Spendid Day Suite Collection by Stampin’ Up!

G’Day Friends,

With the weather the way it has been this week, it has been the perfect time to just sit & craft, too wet & cold to get out in the garden.

My little dog has not been getting out of bed until about 9ish, when we go for our walk, she has brekkie & retires back to bed until about 2ish & then it is time for another walk.

I’ve been playing with the gorgeous Splendid Day Suite from the new Mini & wow, are you going to love creating with it too!   It’s simply stunning & perfect for all occasions.

I actually did a live for this card yesterday showing how to use your scraps of DSP.  Mind you it completely turned out different to what I had in mind as it just didn’t go to plan – my part – but we battled on & got there in the end.  It is probably a great design to complete your half finished projects too.

I am loving the fact that you are able to stamp on the opposite side of the foil sheets, which is exactly what I did here.

I will be honest & say that the image was going to be coloured with Stampin’ Blends but after the disaster of the chopping the DSP, I thought better not to push my luck lol.  If you watch the video, you will see why.

Mega Tutorial Bundle with Stampin’ Up! Splendid Day Suite Collection

G’Day Friends,

A couple of weeks ago, Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world got together to stamp & create together with a Creativity Now Event.  We completed 5 projects with the gorgeous Splendid Day Suite Collection.  Oh how I love this Collection!

Now for the best news!  I’ve joined a group of Demonstrators from around the world to bring you 27 tutorials created from this Collection!  That’s 157 pages of ideas & inspiration!

Included in the Tutorial is a complete list of Supplies for each project, Measurements both in Metric & Letter size plus Step by Step Instructions.  There are even photos where required.

Kylie’s International Blog Highlights

G’Day Friends,

Today I am hopping along with Kylie’s International Blog Hop for July.  This is a hop where Demonstrators from all around the world chose to take part highlighting all our lovely product.  If this is the first time visiting my blog, thank you so much for dropping by.

You are able to vote for my card Here or by clicking on the photo below.

Thank You is our theme for the hop.  Many of us don’t take the time to thank the ones we love or care about.  It can be the simple things that they do for us each day or big things that they have done recently.  It is so important to say thank you and show our appreciation for the hard work of others and the kindness that they show.

I love creating this type of card & posting them off in the mail or leaving them in my neighbours letterboxes.  Do you know of anyone you can this type of card to?  I’m sure they would appreciate it.

I’ve been playing with the gorgeous Splendid Day Suite from the new Mini & wow, are you going to love creating with it too!   It’s simply stunning & perfect for all occasions.

At first the main image was stamped onto Basic White but after putting the card together I decided it needed a little something else as it was too flat.  I then stamped the same image onto scrap Basic White, coloured & blended with Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Combo, finishing off with the Clear Wink of Stella.

After die cutting the image with the Splendid Stems Dies, it was adhered over the top of the original image with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Much better I think.

The sentiment is from one of my favourites – Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set.  Not only is it perfect for all occasions but the font seems to suit all cards.

If you live in Australia, click on the photo below to purchase this Suite.  Don’t forget to use the July Host Code – HXQEXPCS –  if your order is under $250.
