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.

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…

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.

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!

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!

Colour INKspiration #07

Thank you once again for all the support you’ve been giving our colour challenges!

It’s the second Wednesday of the month, which means a new colour combination to inspire us!

This fortnight, we’re playing with a sweet palette of Mint Macaron, Daffodil Delight, Pink Pirouette & Tip Top Taupe.

I’m so pleased to be celebrating my 2 favourite outgoing In Colors.  With the retirement list released yesterday, make sure you’ve stocked up on all the 2015-2017 In Color supplies you need.  Once they sell out, they’ll be gone {forever!}.

I was going to tuck away my new OnStage stamps and share them with you a bit later, but I couldn’t resist for this card on 2 counts….

  1. This stamp set is adorable!
  2. The colours are perfect for a little piggy!!!

So, let me introduce you to one of the little piggies we’ll be meeting when the new catalogue launches on 1st June 2017.

I love this time of the year – the triple dipping is wonderful for creativity!

I have products from the two current catalogues plus all the sneak peeks from the upcoming catalogue!  It’s going to make for some fabulous creations!

I took the colour theme through to the inside of this card too…

This piggy is going to be a hit!  Such a happy little gal!

Thanks for joining me for a colour filled blog hop.

Never Ending Succulent Card

Today I’m sharing a card with you that I made for one of my stamping besties.

Lou & I bonded online and then met for the first time in Brisbane at OnStage – where we had a giggle over both being sent the Succulent stamp set for our display board stamping.

So, there’s a touch of irony in this card – the never-ending succulent card!

A Never-Ending card was one of the first fancy cards I made.  It definitely delivered a wow factor then and still does now!!!

Here’s a video of Lou’s card in action…

A never ending card flips and flips and flips – you just keep going!

There are 4 decorated sides in total.
