Painted Seasons DSP with a Healing Hug!

Sale-A-Bration

I’ve been dazzled and amazed by all the Sale-A-Bration choices in 2019.  Did you know we’ve had three separate releases?  You can see all the choices in the online store by clicking here.

One of my favourites is the Painted Seasons DSP – available as a level 1 product when you spend $90+ or in a bundle with the Painted Seasons stamp set when you spend $180+.

The colours in the DSP are so vibrant with a mix of pretty art patterns and bold geometric designs.

When it became available, I made the decision to just get the DSP.  I might have a little bit of buyers remorse now – as I’ve seen so many beautiful cards with the Painted Seasons stamp set.

But – as much as I’d like to buy one of everything, Mr Papercraft insists I spend money on other thing too (like feeding the kids!).

One of the things Stampin’ Up! do really well, is coordination across the range.  So, even though I don’t have the Painted Seasons stamp set, I do have lots of other lovely stamp sets and found that the large rose – also a Distinktive style of stamp – goes really well with this DSP.

My team made their choice of these cards at our most recent team meeting as the make & take project.

I love using the art patterns as whole backgrounds for a card.  I’ve then added the largest Stitched Circle in Wood Textures DSP, a Stitched Rectangle embossed with the Country Floral Embossing Folder (another of my favourite Sale-A-Bration choices), Polka Dot ribbon, Healing Hug rose and the Happy Birthday from Well Said on another Stitched Rectangle.  I do love the stitched die options – how did we ever craft without them?

The rose in this version is Poppy Parade to coordinate with the DSP.

And the rose in this version is Blushing Bride…

If you ever have issues with the Distinktive stamps not giving you a crisp image, try using an old credit card or store card to scrape the ink to one end of your ink pad.  Then apply ink from the end with less ink.  Less is more for the Distinktive stamps.  Another suggestion is to ink the stamp up with a sponge dauber or brayer.

 


As well as Sale-A-Bration choices in March, there’s also a promotion running with extras that coordinate with your Sale-A-Bration favourites.  Love the frogs but hate fussy cutting?  During March (while stocks last), you can buy the coordinating framelits!

Sale-A-Bration Coordination

There’s also framelits for Hello Cupcake, Lasting Lily and Painted Seasons plus a new punch (Story Label) and an exclusive stamp set (More Than Words).  Click here to see all the Sale-A-Bration coordination products in my online store.  These items are purchase only – they do not have to be earned.

Class Schedule – Feb, March & April 2017

Can you believe it’s February already???  I’m not sure where January went – we were too busy having fun to notice!

But, it’s back to reality now with school back in full swing and our routine most of the way to being under control.


You’ve been asking about classes for 2017 – here’s the details!

This year I am running 3 classes each month.

All classes will be held in my cozy little craft cottage

{well, the kitchen table in my house but we’ll pretend we’re in an awesome craft cottage!}

There are 2 types of classes…

  • FRIDAY BIRTHDAY CLASS – 9.30am
    • In this class you will make cards that are fun & creative
    • It’s perfect for all levels of card making and an awesome way to build up your birthday card supplies.
    • The cost for this class is $15 and it will take us about 2 hours.
  • TUESDAY SKILL BUILDER – 9.30am & 1pm (repeated session)
    • In this card you will learn techniques, folds & ways to use products
    • The class will usually contain 1 ‘fancy’ card or project and 2 standard cards
    • This class is perfect for crafters with an interest in card making as a hobby to build up your skills
    • The cost for this class is $20 and it will take us about 2.5 hours

Classes are limited to 4 participants per session – due to the size of the cottage!

If you see a class or 2 you’re interested in please email me to reserve your place & I’ll be in touch with payment details.  Your seat in the class is only confirmed when I receive payment.

If the dates I’ve set for classes don’t suit you, please feel free to contact me to suggest a weekend class or in-home workshop.

Let’s Go – 2016 Holiday Catalogue: Christmas & MORE!

Holiday Catalogue 2016 Cover

It’s time – after weeks of seeing the glorious samples coming from the craft tables of demonstrators around the world, everyone can now order from the 2016 Holiday Catalogue.

It’s 56 pages of stunning new products for all your Christmas projects & {MORE}!

View the catalogue here, browse the online store or email me to request a card copy (Australia only).


I’m expecting the Cookie Cutter bundle to be a hit with young & old for it’s cute and veratile images.

Reindeer & Santa for Christmas; Eskimo, Gingerbread Man & Teddy Bear for year-round fun!

The matching punch makes it a dream to punch out the shapes including builder pieces such as buttons, bows, hearts and eyes.

It teams well with other Christmas items you already have – like the Perfect Pines stamp set.

Other items to look out for in the new catalogue:

  • Candy Cane Lane DSP (pg 5)
  • Candy Cane Lane Washi Tape (pg 5)
  • Copper Foil (pg 47)

The Holiday Catalogue isn’t just about Christmas.  There’s also Halloween (which you may not be into, but this section is great for ideas for little & big boys!), spring/summer and new year.

I made this fun birthday card using a combination of products from the second half of the catalogue and the Number of Years/Large Numbers set from the Annual Catalogue.

2016 Holiday Catalogue - Petals & Paisleys DSP & Pumpkin Pie Glimmer. Number of Years & Large Numbers Framelits. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

The flower pattern at the top of the card is sponged with the new brayers (so lovely!) in Rich Razzleberry ink over Irresistibly Floral DSP.  Such a fun technique – you should try it!

The pretty pattern at the bottom is Petals & Paisleys DSP and the numbers are using Pumpkin Pie Glimmer.  So much fun!
