Have you stocked your In Color Favourites?

There’s still just under 2 months left of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue – all the action ends the 31st May 2018.

Stampin’ Up! will release the official retirement list next week, but there’s one range of products we are guaranteed to say goodbye to – the 2016-2018 In Color range.

2018 In Color Retirement | kelly kent

This includes Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum & Peekaboo Peach.

If any of these colours are on your list of favourites, then I suggest you stock up {BEFORE} the official retirement list comes out.  After this point, stock is only available on a ’til it lasts’ basis and many of the products will sell out quickly.

Make sure you have reinkers for your inkpads, extra cardstock to see you through and any accessories you’ll miss.

Direct shopping links below or browse my online store: http://bit.ly/shopSUwithkellykent

Although it’s always sad to see colours go that we have fallen in love with – it’s exciting to know that 5 new In Colors will be arriving in June.

If you have any questions about the retirement list or need help to place an order, please let me know!

I’ve been waiting patiently all week for my boxes of new fun to arrive – and they … didn’t!

So I’ve had a bit more time to play with the gorgeous In Colors and today I’m sharing my “Delightful Duos” with you.  These, in my opinion, are the best coordinating choices for each of the 2016-2018 In Colors.

ESAD 2016-17 Annual Catalogue Blog Hop - Delightful Duos . Swirly Bird/Scribbles & Thoughtful Banners. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com

Each card features the same layout but uses a different In Color – do make cards in batches like this?  It’s a great way to make a bundle of cards quickly.

Other new products that feature are the Swirly Bird stamp set, Swirly Scribbles Thinlits and Whisper White Thick Baker’s Twine.

Do you have a favourite duo?  Sweet Sugarplum – Rich Razzleberry is still rating highly for me, but I’m also loving the Dapper Denim & Island Indigo combination!


I’m really, really, really hoping that my boxes arrive in the next couple of days and I’ll soon be sharing new products with you!

Until then, keep travelling on the blog hop for more inspiration.  Next stop is the always lovely Delys Cram.

Good Morning! It’s New Catalogue Day!!!

Happy Wednesday, the first day of winter (here in Australia) and welcome to the new catalogue!!!

The new colours are beautiful, stamps amazing & product selection plentiful.  There really is something for everyone in this catalogue.

This is a card we made in a class on the weekend using the bright & beautiful Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum & Peekaboo Peach inks.  The Definitely Dahlia stamp is carrying over from the 2016 catalogue.

Just Add Ink - #313 Add "B". Baby Wipe Technique - Definitely Dahlia stamp & 2016-2018 In Colors: Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum & Flirty Flamingo. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

Using the ink refills, we made our our ‘stamp pad’ using a baby wipe.  This technique give a lovely marbled effect and shows off the new colours beautifully.

I wonder what the girls over at Just Add Ink will think for my ‘Just Add B #313‘ entry.

We also used ‘any colour’ embossing.  Did you know you can emboss in any Stampin’ Up! colour???

Simply ink your stamp in Versamark, then your chosen colour (Rich Razzleberry is pictured in my card) and then cover with clear embossing powder.  Heat as usual and the resulting colour will be a slightly lighter version of your chosen ink.

2016 Annual Catalogue Launch Samples

Thank you to all the lovely ladies who came to my launch this morning – what fun we had.

There was ooohing & ahhhing over new products, amazement over how pretty the new paper is, prizes won and a few ‘Sweet Sugarplum’ scones devoured!  Recipe here!


The standout winner from the new catalogue was the 2016-2018 In Colors.   The new colours were an instant hit with everyone and the In Color Classic Stamp Pads were the most popular item of the day.

If you couldn’t be with us today, but I can help you with a new catalogue or to place an order for new & amazing products, please email me or visit my online store.  {Australian residents only}

Only 4 more sleeps!!!

Wild About Flowers – Swap Inspired Cards

Do you remember the card I made for Kylie Bertucci’s 1:1 swap?

Picture Perfect Raised Frame Card for Kylie Bertucci's 1:1 swap. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

This is the gorgeous card I received in return from Heidi Bell. You can see more of her creations on her Facebook page – Crafting Around Town.

Wild About Flowers card - created by Heidi Bell.

Seeing Heidi’s card using the Wild About Flowers stamp set reminded me that I’d borrowed this set from Nanna Papercraft a couple of months ago and hadn’t inked it up yet.  It’s ok – I think she’s forgotten I’ve got it.  Shhhhh!

I’m so glad Heidi inspired me to use it – it’s a beautiful set!

Did you spy the Sweet Sugarplum cardstock & ink?  It’s my favourite 2016-18 In Color.  It coordinates beautifully with Rich Razzleberry, Soft Suede and Old Olive.

All new products available from 1st June 2016.  If you can’t wait until then to order more Stampin’ Up!, you can shop for current or retiring products now including the Wild About Flowers stamp set.

Or, if you really can’t wait, join now as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator (it’s a risk free opportunity – more info here) and add the new colors to your $160 Starter Kit.

Birthday Wishes to Me! 2016-2018 In Color Presents!

{HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!}

I’ve been so spoilt by birthday cards (& even some presents) today and can’t wait to share them with you during the week.

But for today, I wanted to share with you the birthday presents I bought myself – the 2016-2018 range of In Colors.

{HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!}

I’ve teamed them with the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits, Duet Banner punch & Thoughtful Banners stamp set – which were also available on pre-order and somehow magically ended up in my birthday box!
