Perennial Birthday

The Perennial Birthday stamp set in the Occasions Catalogue is designed to go with the Perennial Birthday Project Kit (see how that works!!).

This is the gorgeous stamp set…

And the amazing kit…

Both are stunning!  But you don’t have to purchase them together (you can…. but you don’t have to!)

Perennial Birthday | kelly kent

This card was quick to stamp in Memento Ink & colour with Stampin’ Blends.

Perennial Birthday | kelly kent

The colours for the large flowers are:

  • Dark Pink Pirouette & Light Rich Razzleberry
  • Light Rich Razzleberry & Dark Rich Razzleberry

The leaves are Light & Dark Old Olive.

The little flowers are Light Night of Navy, Dark Pink Pirouette & Light Rich Razzleberry.

If you’re ever unsure about colour combinations – pop back to the catalogue and see what colours the concept artists have used in the catalogue samples.  Always good for a hit of inspiration!

Perennial Birthday | kelly kent

Much of the reason I love this stamp set is about that birthday greeting – it’s just too gorgeous for words #fontnerd

There’s 6 birthday sentiments and 8 other stamps – perfect for all your birthday creations!

Stampin’ Up! Kits – So Much Happy!

I was using my collection of Stampin’ Up! kits to make some customer thank you cards and fell in love all over again!

Stampin' Up! Kits | kelly kent

They are amazingly quality, with high-end design and offer options for beginner & experience crafters.

For the beginner – look for all-inclusive kits and follow the instructions to create beautiful cards with only extra adhesive required.

For the experienced crafter – add in supplies from your craft stash to change up the designs & add your own personal touch.

Each new catalogue release brings new kit options.

There are three kits available in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue plus a planner.

Here’s two of the card kits….

But….quite a few of my favourites are staying around for another catalogue cycle (yay!), which means they’ll be available to purchase until at least 31st May 2018.

Even though the individual items will still be available, any items in a bundle (ie, stamp set & punch) will not be available at the discounted bundle price after 2nd Jan.  If they are on your wishlist, you may like to consider buying them before the catalogue finishes and saving yourself 10%.

Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop | Non Traditional Christmas

Paper Adventures - Blog Hop Header

I absolutely cannot believe this is our second last team blog hop of the year.

How did it get to November so quickly???

We are delighted to share this hop with Carolyn Bennie who is guest designing with us this month for our theme…

Non-traditional Christmas

I am a great fan of projects outside of the box for Christmas, whether it’s in the design, colours or theme.

Today, I’m sharing  two projects with you.

The first is non-traditional Christmas colours.

I always love seeing bright & pretty Christmas colours!!!

My choice for today is some of my favourites pretty colours…

Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop

Non Traditional Christmas

I wanted to contrast them against a clean & simple white card.

So, using the tree dies from the Christmas Staircase thinlits, I started with a white tree.  Because of the proportions of the tree, I’ve opted for a square card (which I almost never do!).

Paper Adventures Non Traditional Christmas | kelly kent

The tree sits on on a 4-3/4″ Whisper White mat with a 5″ border in Berry Burst.  The card base is 6″ square (so cut at 6″ from a 12″ piece of cardstock and score in half @ 6″).

Of course a square card needs a special envelope and thanks to my Envelope Punch Board, it’s super easy to whip one up!

Paper Adventures Non Traditional Christmas | kelly kent

Are you dazzled by all the pretty coloured jewels?  And wondering how you missed them in the catalogue?  You don’t buy them coloured – but they are easy to make!

Our new Stampin’ Blends colour over the smooth surface of our rhinestones, pearls and metallic embellishments.  So, these pretties are made by colouring the rhinestone jewels with Stampin’ Blends.

Paper Adventures Non Traditional Christmas | kelly kent

To match the colours I’ve chosen for my card, I used the light & dark Rich Razzleberry Blends, the dark Bermuda Bay, the dark Pool Party and the dark Old Olive.  I also added in some uncoloured rhinestones to for another variation in colour.

The base of the tree and the inside of the card are stamped using the Paint Play stamp set.  The sentiment is from the always faithful Teeny Tiny Sentiments.

Paper Adventures Non Traditional Christmas | kelly kent


The second card I’m sharing today uses an everyday stamp set to create a Christmas card.

Sometimes it’s easy to get stuck on the sets that are specifically labelled as Christmas.  But, you already own a dozen or more stamp sets that have lots of versatility.

I love the Build A Bike stamp set and thought a bike would make a good alternative to a Christmas sleigh!

Paper Adventures Non Traditional Christmas | kelly kent

The present is from the Ready for Christmas stamp set and the sentiment from Christmas Quilt stamp set.

Paper Adventures Non Traditional Christmas | kelly kent

I’ve matched the non-traditional theme with traditional Christmas colours of red & green.

If you love red & green, the Quilted Christmas DSP is a perfect choice!  It comes in a 6×6″ paper stack, so after cutting the DSP for my card front, I had a strip left over.

This was perfect to brighten up the inside of my card…

Paper Adventures Non Traditional Christmas | kelly kent

I don’t always use angles in my card, but it seemed to follow through nicely to have the inside purposefully wonky too (since the front was!).


I can’t wait for you to see what the rest of our Paper Adventures team has created for this hop.  I am always inspired by their creativity and you’re going to love how they’ve all thought outside the box.

Next stop from here is to our guest designer – Carolyn Bennie in South Australia.

It was wonderful to see Carolyn again at OnStage on the weekend!

Christmas Gift Box Card

Happy Halloween & last day of October!!

We don’t actively celebrate Halloween (though I’m sure this will change in future years as the girls beg to join their friends in the fun!), so today’s share is a Christmas card.

Cards featuring a gift box have been flooding my Pinterest feed of late thanks to some lovely designs.  I made one earlier in the month using the Painted Autumn DSP.

This is another version, using the Christmas Around the World DSP & traditional Christmas colours…

This Little Blogger… is taking a break!

Everyone needs a little holiday every now and again, and before we head into the Holiday Catalogue at full steam, I’m taking some time away from the computer and giving my blog a little break during August.

Blog Free August | kelly kent

I’m still going to be spending lots of time creating beautiful things – I just won’t be sharing them here.

There’ll be a little bit of action on my Facebook page, so if you think you’ll miss me, be sure you like my Facebook page!

I’m looking forward to seeing you in September, refreshed & recharged and excited for the next creative journey!

Text Ya Later!

There’s a cool new stamp set from Stampin’ Up! that I know lots of crafters will love!

It’s called Text Ya Later and it comes with 59 photopolymer stamps that give you all the builder pieces you need to make text conversations.

It’s a little sassy and a lot of fun – and I can see this being a hit with teenagers, plus pretty much anyone who owns a mobile phone!

I used it to send welcome cards to the ladies who have signed up for my Stamp Club.

Text Ya Later | kelly kent

The DSP is from the Color Theory DSP and each colour inspired the overall colour theme for each card.

Here’s a close up of the Berry Burst card…

Text Ya Later | kelly kent

They said ‘yes’ (thumbs up) and I said ‘thx! you’re the best, so excited for you, *high five*’.

Text Ya Later | kelly kent

I had so much fun putting it altogether.

The spiral punch across the stop of the DSP is a sneaky retired punch that I loved for the mixed of new technology & old technology, and I carried that theme through with the pen from the Crafting Together stamp set.

Text Ya Later | kelly kent

And since I had that stamp set out, I thought the ‘do something creative every day’ was the perfect inside sentiment for a group of crafting fanatics!

Crafting Forever | kelly kent


If you’d like more information about joining a Stamp Club, please email me.

The short version is – a group of 5 Australian crafters sign up to a virtual club (there’s no meetings, it’s all conducted online – so you can live anywhere in Oz!).  It runs for 5 consecutive months with a minimum spend from each participant of $50 per month.  You take turns to receive the hostess rewards.  It’s a fabulous way to slowly but surely add those things from your wishlist.

You might like to use your hostess rewards to buy the coordinating set for Text Ya Later.  It’s a host exclusive called You’re Delightful.

Sound like fun?  Let me know you’re interested by emailing me or contacting me on Facebook.

*** Stamp Clubs can only go ahead with 5 committed members.

If your wishlist is much more substantial than a $50 spend, then join me & my Paper Adventures team by becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.

There’s a fabulous joining special in July that you really can’t go past!  Click here for all the info!
