At OnStage back in November 2017, we all received a new stamp set to take home as part of a giveaway called ‘Prize Patrol’.

I got this stunning set called Beautiful Day.

 

It’s a delight to stamp with!  The flower is pretty – but the butterfly…. oh my!!!

For this card, I heat embossed the butterfly in gold on vellum and coloured using Rich Razzleberry & Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blends to create a stained glass effect.

Stamp Review Crew | Bella & Friends

What a great way to start 2018 – with a Stamp Review Crew blog hop!

Thanks for joining our group of international demonstrators as we all showcase a stamp set.  You can find the main SRC post here.

You are starting the New Year with Kelly Kent in Bunbury, Western Australia.  You may have already visited Nikki on the east coast of Australia, and the next stop is Cindy Elam in the US (I think it’s still 2017 there!).

Today’s stamp set is Bella & Friends from the Annual Catalogue….

It’s the perfect set for any project that needs to be cute!

Although I often make cards, for my blog projects, I’m starting this year with a 3D item using a Pizza Box as the base.  I’m was so happy to hear that these cute little boxes will continue to be available into 2018!

Stamp Review Crew - Bella & Friends | kelly kent

Bella & her turtle friend are coloured using Watercolor Pencils & smoothed over with an Aqua Painter.

We have so many amazing colouring options in the range at the moment!  Have you gotten your watercolour pencils out lately?  I’d been neglecting them, but after playing with my Lots of Happy kit during the week, I was reinspired.  That’s where I borrowed the Lemon Lime Twist Pencil from – there’s a few sneaky new colours!!!

Stamp Review Crew - Bella & Friends | kelly kent

What’s on the inside????

Stamp Review Crew - Bella & Friends | kelly kent

I’m thinking that this would make a great ‘by the phone’ type pad – only no one I know has a tabletop phone anymore!!!  But a notepad you have lying around the house for when you need to jot down a shopping list, phone number or leave a note for someone.

A really cute note!  All the pages are stamped with images from the stamp set…

Stamp Review Crew - Bella & Friends | kelly kent

And since there’s cute pictures, I thought it would be good to include some colouring pencils to up the fun factor!

Stamp Review Crew - Bella & Friends | kelly kent

I’m sure you spied the calendar on there – it’s always handy to have a calendar on hand when you’re planning ahead!!  I love the size & quality of these calendars available from Craftie Cafe.  Plus, it’s the time of the year when having calendars on projects is very practical!

Stamp Review Crew - Bella & Friends | kelly kent

The paper pad came from Kmart Australia I had in my stash. I can’t find it on the website at the moment, so it might not be available at the moment.  It measures 8cm x 8cm.

Stamp Review Crew - Bella & Friends | kelly kent


Thanks for joining me for this edition of the Stamp Review Crew!

Hop over to Cindy Elam to continue with cute & cuddly inspiration featuring Bella and her friends!

Happy New Year – I hope 2018 is wonderful for you & your loved ones!

Happy New Year!

Wishing everyone a magical 2018!  We have the start of the Occasions catalogue to look forward to on Wednesday and many more beautiful products throughout the year!

I was a little late getting some of my Christmas cards out, so I sent through some of these cards using the Myths & Magic Suite.

Have a Magical 2018 | kelly kent

Myths & Magic Suite – Available 3rd Jan 2018 

I probably should have paid more attention – there is actually a banner framelit that cuts out the magical!!!  All that fussy cutting!  We’ll just pretend that’s the look I was going for!

Have a Magical 2018 | kelly kent

The eclipse style of this card gave me left over numbers, so I decided to make a second version.

Have a Magical 2018 | kelly kent

And with the cute mythical creatures of the stamp set, I couldn’t resist adding some decoration to the middle..

Have a Magical 2018 | kelly kent

A bit of the washi or glimmer paper would have looked amazing in there too!!!

So much still to discover from the new catalogue!


I can start taking orders now, ready for Wednesday, so if your wishlist is ready, email it through.  Or shop in the online store anytime from Wednesday morning.

Hello 2018, we’re going to have fun!

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….

Elf in A Box

Earlier in the year I had a custom order for a card to be sent overseas. And I realised I hadn’t shared it with you!

It’s the perfect Christmas Eve creation to share – full of joy & fun!

It needed to be something that could sit up & be displayed on the mantle, but could be posted flat – a card in a box was the perfect fold.

Elf in a Box | kelly kent

I really like Di Barnes’ tutorial & measurements for making a card in a box.  Click here visit her blog.


I wanted to make the card look like a present filled with presents!

Here it is folded flat…

Elf in a Box | kelly kent

And a closer view of the elf on the inside.  I masked out the Happy Holidays sentiment & replaced it with a bow!

Elf in a Box | kelly kent

I have loved using the Festive Phrases stamp set!  It’s retiring from the Holiday Catalogue and is available in the online store at a 15% discount for clear-mount and 20% discount for wood-mount.  The DSP for this card – Christmas Around the World – is also on the retirement list.

The Labels to Love stamp  set (sentiment on the card), Everyday Label Punch & Ready for Christmas stamp set (presents on the card) are all on the carryover list.  See the full list here.

Make sure to get any of your favourite Holiday Catalogue products by 2nd Jan 2018.  Shop 24-7 including Christmas Day in my online store.  Click here to browse.

Hopefully all your Christmas preparation is under control and you are spending today relaxing!  The Miss Papercrafts are I are constructing a gingerbread house – I think I prepare to work with paper!!!
