Mr & Mrs Papercraft from mypapercraftjourney.com.

I know I always love seeing little sneak peaks into the lives of my favourite crafters – and thought you might like to see the people behind the blog!

This is Mr Papercraft & I at a wedding we attended on the weekend – a rare child free night out!

Mr P is very supportive of my Stampin’ Up! journey but I haven’t yet been able to convince him to join me as a supporting demonstrator.

Did you know that your spouse can join you in running your Stampin’ Up! business and be your supporting demonstrator.  Twice the fun!  The family that stamps together ….


Today is the last day you (and your spouse!!!) can join Stampin’ Up! and take advantage of the Sale-A-Bration joining special.

Pay only $169 for your starter kit and get $295 of products (the ones you choose, not the ones Stampin’ Up! thinks you need).  That’s $126 of free product plus free shipping!!!

You might like to consider joining to be a hobby demo that buys to boost your personal stash.  Or you’re a Stay-At-Home mum that needs something ‘just for you’.  Or you’d like to run a business with the support & backing of a quality international direct sales company.  Whatever the reason, we’d love to have you on board.

I’d love to welcome you to Team Papercraft.  Kelly x

Press For Champagne!

My lovely sister-in-law made a very specific request for her birthday card this year.  She wanted something styled on the Lisa Golightly ‘Press for Champagne’ sign.  She even posted a picture on my Facebook wall – with lots of advance notice!

This was a super fun request and I decided as awesome as it would be to have a ‘Press for Champage’ card, what if the card had rotating options!

So, here we go Caris…. here’s your Press for Champagne birthday card…

Or, if you’re feeling a little more ugg boots & oversized jumper than LBD & stilettos…. here’s your Press for Hot Chocolate card too!

That’s right, the card has a spinner in it, so you can rotate the sentiment to be either champagne or hot chocolate depending on your mood.

Happy birthday Princess Caris!  Enjoy your champagne & all the other birthday treats that come your way.  Team Papercraft x

Butterfly Explosion! JAI304

It’s Just Add Ink time again – is it just me, or are these weeks flying by?

A great inspiration challenge this week with a bold photo chosen by Jodene.

Those colours just pop!  I’m not sure where in the world this is – but it looks like somewhere I’d like to visit!!!

For me, it was the colours that formed most of my inspiration.  As well as the idea of something floating in the sky.

Here is my butterfly explosion card…

Just Add Ink #304 - Butterfly Explosion card. Kellly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.Unfortunately the mason jar framelit & stamp set is on the retired list (from many a years back), but it was just such a perfect image for my butterflies to be escaping from that I couldn’t resist using it (maybe some of you still have it in your collection???).

The gorgeous butterflies, however, are very much available.  You can find them hanging out in the Annual Catalogue as part of the Garden in Bloom stamp set.  This set is so lovely and gets regular use at my house!

What’s better than one sweet butterfly???  An explosion of sweet butterflies!  Kelly x

Pyramid Pals Easter Bunnies

Today is Good Friday, which for us means no school, no work & no appointments!  We are spending the day in our pjs doing things that make us happy – like playing games, eating yummy food & doing some craft.

Just in case you’re also having a ‘good’ Friday and have some time at the craft table for some last minute Easter crafting, I wanted to share these cute little bunnies with you I made for Easter teacher gifts this year.

They are made using the Pyramid Pals Thinlits dies and Playful Pals stamp set.

Pyramid Pals Easter Bunnies. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

So cute!!!  But super tiny – this surprised me a little.  Although I’ve been using this bundle lots, I hadn’t made a pyramid creation yet.

They meausre at approx 7cm tall and 6cm (square) across the bottom.  I was able to squeeze a mini Lindt bunny and 3 little Lindt eggs in, but that was all!  Which was actually the perfect amount for this project.

The good news about them being so small, is I was able to get all the pieces from half an A4 piece of cardstock (including the ears & bow).  This makes them very economical to make.  And with the pyramid thinlit die doing all the hard work for you, putting them together is a breeze as well – just line up the tabs with adhesive as needed.

{Don’t forget to add some ribbon before the final stick if you want a little handle}

How cute is the honeycomb embellishment as a little tail?  They come in white, blue & pink – which makes them perfect for every bunny!

The tags were made using the “Happy Easter” from the Easter Lamb stamp – I’m a sucker for a good font – cut out with one of my favourite punches, the Washi Label.

These Pyramid Pals Easter Bunnies went down a treat with the teachers!  I wonder if they’ve eaten all their chococlates yet???

Happy Easter to everyone – hope your weekend is lovely! Kelly x

Last Chance Sale-A-Bration 2016 – ESAD Blog Hop

Welcome to another ESAD blog hop.  This time we’re sharing our favourite products from the 2016 Sale-A-Bration range.

It’s your last chance to see & earn them – you’ve only got one more week before these items are gone forever!!!

What is ESAD?

ESAD stands for “Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators” and is a Facebook group just for Australian and New Zealand Independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.

We love what we do & love to share with our customers, friends and blog visitors. We also share what we love in our ESAD Demonstrator community, through swaps, challenges, sharing knowledge, ideas& friendship and we’re always there to help and support each other.

So if you are a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand then please feel free to leave me a comment with your email address then I’ll contact you with information on how to join our group.

There’s 13 talented ladies on the hop today – all with some seriously dangerous inspiration!!!

Did you come via’s Amity’s great projects?  I always love seeing what she’s made!

Today I’m sharing projects I made using the Metallics Glitter Tape.  Although I loved lots of the Sale-A-Bration projects (and shared lots of my creations with you over the past 3 months!), I haven’t really shown off the glitter tape yet.  Which is a shame – because it’s truly stunning.

But don’t worry, I’m going to change that now and show you three different projects I made featuring the tape.

I’ve also thrown a couple of other SAB products in the mix too!!!

The first share uses the silver glitter tape as a card embellishment together with silver ribbon.  Simple but lovely – I love purple & silver together!

And how amazing the dandelion DSP???  This is also a Sale-A-Bration product – from the Wildflower Fields DSP.  So cute!

With Easter just around the corner, I couldn’t resist using the white tape to add some sparkle to this cute little gift card holder.

Did you know that the tape can be coloured to create a different look altogether!!!  I brayered the tape with Blushing Bride ink to add a touch of colour to the egg.

And my final share is using the gold glitter tape – as tape!  I’ve used it to attach a Memories in the Making Project Life card (also a Sale-A-Bration choice!) to my card front.  The stick on this glitter tape has to be seen to be believed – the quality is amazing!

The sentiment in from the Limited Edition Sale-A-Bration stamp set – Party Pants.  I tried out embossing in gold on the acetate PL card – that was tricky business!  The static on those sheets is crazy and I had all sort of flyaways going on!!!!

So, as you can see – so many Sale-A-Bration choices… so many projects to try!

If you see a Sale-A-Bration product you like here, or in any of the Blog Hop projects, you’ll want to place an order before next Thursday (31st March 2016).  Once it hits Thursday at 9pm (WA time), Sale-A-Bration finishes and all of these products retire.

The catch?  You can’t actually buy any of the Sale-A-Bration products.  But, you can redeem your choice (with no maximum limits) for every $90 you spend {before shipping}.

Shop online or email me your list!  I plan to put in one last Sale-A-Bration order next week- if you’re local to Bunbury and would like to share on postage, let me know!

It’s my pleasure to send you on your way now to the incredibly talented Lou Kitzelman and her Sale-A-Bration temptations!
