This stamp set & punch have you covered for all your Christmas needs.  Perfect for tags & gift decorating!

Can you believe it’s only three months til Christmas Eve!!!

What kind of Christmas prepper are you?  It probably doesn’t surprise you that I’m a last minute girl!  In fact I often have my best ideas in the days leading up to Christmas (when everything is sold out or there’s no time for delivery!).

Somehow as much as I plan to be organised this year, I don’t think 2018 will be any different!!!

Still Global in 2018 – German & French Clear Case Inserts

Clear Case Inserts - Available in French & German | kelly kent

Many of the European demonstrators I’ve chatted with online have an amazing ability to converse in English, as well as their native language.  Which is lucky, because I am unable to speak another language!!!

Despite their amazing language skills, it’s always nice to have options in your first language, so with the help of a couple of my demonstrator friends, I have been able to translate my 2018 range of Clear Case Inserts into German & French.

Thank you for your help ladies (you know who you are).  Any editing errors are my own.

CASEing the Catty #179 | Favourite Kit

Sunday again!  Can you believe how fast these weeks roll around???  I’m grateful to have another wonderful week to look forward to (even if 2019 is coming faster than I’m ready for!!!).

Today I’m hopping with the CASEing the Catty Crew, and we are sharing projects inspired by the kits currently available in the Stampin’ Up! range.

It’s catalogue transition time, so most of these kits are soon to be retired.

No automatic alt text available.

Kits are great for all levels of crafters.  For the beginner stamper, they give you the supplies to make cards without having to buy the whole online store!  For experienced stampers, they are the perfect option for taking on holiday, to keep you busy while waiting around at kids sports and because they are just so pretty!

I’m sharing projects made today with the Color Me Happy Kit which was a special release together with the Stampin’ Blends.

This kit is still available in the online store and features supplies to make 4 fabulous card designs (16 cards in total) in conjunction with the Color Me Happy stamp set.

I’ve mixed & matched the pieces from this kit using the style of the bottom left design, the envelope from the top right and the birds from the top left to create a pocket style card.

Color Me Happy - Kit Alternative | kelly kent

The cute stamps in this set are perfect for colouring.  I’ve used Stampin’ Blends (they are my favourite!!!) but any colouring method will work!  Just choose your ink to match your colouring choice (quick tip: alcohol colouring = water based ink; water colouring = alcohol based ink).

Color Me Happy - Kit Alternative | kelly kent

If you think kits are just for putting together the pieces, then you’ll be pleasantly surprised how easy it is to create your own designs by mixing & matching.

Color Me Happy - Kit Alternative | kelly kent


Did I mention how much I love Stampin’ Blends?  They’ve been in unorderable status for a few weeks while Stampin’ Up! catch up on manufacturing to meet our crazy demand.  They’ve be back on 1st June!!!

I’m excited to share that we’ll be getting more Stampin’ Blends colours in the new catalogue! With 11 new colour pairs joining the collection, there will be 22 colours in total plus two skin tones & a colour lifter marker (Pink Pirouette retired with the current catalogue cycle).

Get ready for these special pens to return to ‘orderable’ on 1st June 2018 with some Color Revamp storage.

It’s exciting to see all the colours that will be returning plus new colours that will be joining the range!

ESAD Blog Hop – 2017 Holiday Catalogue

Image may contain: text

Hello!  Welcome to our latest ESAD Blog Hop.  We’re celebrating the start of the Stampin’ Up! 2017 Holiday Catalogue.

I may be a little biased since SU! is my favourite card making supply company, but they have hit another winner with this catalogue!

Be prepared for your wishlist to grow as you visit each of the talented ESAD members participating in this blog hop!  A full list in available at the end of this post – just in case there’s any broken links!

Image may contain: text

If you haven’t yet seen a copy of the Holiday Catalogue, you can download the digital version here.

Hard copies are available from your local Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  If you don’t yet have a demonstrator to supply you with all your stamping needs, you have plenty of choice along this hop!!!


I have added some lovely new items to my Stampin’ Up! collection of late, but one particular area I have been stocking up in, is the Memories & More card kits.

There are 4 kits available in the Annual Catalogue and a Christmas collection in the Holiday Catalogue.

I’m not a large scrapbooker or memory keeper, but I throughout the year I’ll make one-off pages for the girls as posters for their room.  Eventually there will be enough of these to make an album!!!

But, while the cards are handy for these pages, the main reason I buy them is they are the perfect size for cards!  It’s like gaining a whole new pack of DSP (which we know I love!).

Each Memories and More card kit contains 72 double sided cards (20 of the large size and 52 of the smaller size), sticker sheets and acetate overlays (numbers vary based on the kit).

Today I’m sharing creations I’ve made using the Merry Little Christmas card kit from the Holiday Catalogue.

First up, I’m sharing a scrapbook page I’ve made…

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Kit | kelly kent

By simply layering the Memories & More cards onto a page from the Merry Little Christmas DSP (yes, we love a coordinating suite!), this page is ready to go with our family memories from Christmas 2017.

The full page lined card leaves plenty of room for journalling and I’ve left the Old Olive cardstock ready to layer a photo on!

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Kit | kelly kent

Check out the ‘family’ sticker on the top right card.  How cute are those stickers for adding extra detail!?!


The second project I’m sharing with you today is 4 cards that I whipped up really quickly using a sheet each of Cherry Cobbler & Old Olive cardstock (cut in half to make 2 cards per sheet).  There’s also some Basic Black cardstock too in the mix to keep within the colour theme of the card kit.

Here are the first two….

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Kit | kelly kent

All the large size cards are just slightly bigger than our card fronts here in Australia, so I trimmed them down to 3-7/8″ x 5-5/8″.

The small cards are already 3-7/8″ tall, so those fit just fine and meant I could display the whole gorgeous card on each of these designs.

I added some silver snowflakes from the sticker sheet to the card on the left and the silver ‘merry’ sentiment to the card on the right.

Here’s the other two…

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Kit | kelly kent

For the card on the left, the sentiment comes from a small card – I just cut it out with my paper snips.

The card on the right has a sticker from the cardstock sticker sheet.  The Kraft coloured cards have a beautiful ‘pearl white’ print on them.

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Kit | kelly kent

To make the scrapbook page and the four cards, I only used a fraction of the cards in my kit.  There’s 36 unique designs (with two sides, so really 72 options), which gives you plenty of creative leeway if you like that freedom, but lots of direction if you just want to whip up some ready to go cards this festive season!


My last share for today is a project I’ve been meaning to make happen for some time, but this blog hop has given me the kick up the bum to do it!

The card kits come in cute little cardboard boxes, but it means every time you want to play with your cards you’ve got to get them all out (and then put them away).

Like so many of our stamping supplies, the clear cases are a perfect solution for storage.

These kits fit best in the full size wood cases.  These little gems accidentally got missed from print run of the Annual Catalogue, but they are very much still available.

Memories & More Free Printable Case Inserts | kelly kent

{Looks like a washi tape insert is next on my list!}

You can download the free printable inserts for your Merry Little Christmas Memories & More card kit here….

And the other four Memories & More card kits from the Annual Catalogue here

Well, that’s all from me.  It seems I’m a little excited to return to blogging.  So good to see you all!!!

ESAD Blog Hop – 2017 Annual Catalogue Favourites

No automatic alt text available.

Hello!  Thanks for joining for for another ESAD Blog Hop.  For all the info on ESAD, see the graphic at the end of this post.

Today we are celebrating our favourites from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.

There’s 25 talented crafters participating today, so make yourself a cuppa (or pour a wine!) and enjoy the clever and inspirational creations to come.

If you’re already hopping, you will have seen the stunning creations from my friend Lou Kitzelman.  Click on the next button below (after my projects) to visit another gorgeous friend of mine – Cheryl Algie.

The friendships I’ve made through Stampin’ Up! is something that I am forever grateful for!  It’s wonderful to have connections across the world!!!


The content of this blog hop was surprisingly easy for me!!!

Sometimes I struggle with ‘favourite’, but I’ve really been loving the Soft Sayings Kit & stamp set.

It’s priced at $61 for the Australian market, and in your cute little box, you receive materials to make 20 cards (including patterned envelopes – yep, no naked envelopes here!!!), a 15 piece stamp set, a block for stamping and an ink spot.

Today I wanted to show you how wonderful the stamp set in the kit is.  I have a ‘soft’ spot for good greetings – and this stamp set covers it all!

It’s easy to miss the kit stamp sets!  They are tucked away in the box and we often use them to make the kit cards but forget that they are more than the kit!!!

So, the first thing I did was make a clear case insert for the stamp set.  I always do this for my kit stamps sets – I break them free from the cute box and store them with my usual stamp sets.  This way they are on display and I don’t forget them!

Soft Sayings stamp set - free printable case insert | kelly kent

Click here to download & print your own Soft Sayings insert for a clear case.

To buy clear cases, click here or see my product link up at the end of this post.

They were accidentally missed from the print run of the catalogue this year – whoops! – but they are still very available!


Although I absolutely love the cards in the kit, I wanted to show you how easy it is to whip up some cards using the greetings & flowers/leaves in this stamp set.  And hopefully inspire you to see this stamp set as more than just for your kit.

I’ve used some of my favourite layouts to make a set of cards using the stamp set in the Soft Sayings kit.

ESAD Blog Hop - Soft Sayings stamp set | kelly kent

The colours are consistent with the kit colours.  Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, Gold & the core colours from the kit.  Using colours that the Stampin’ Up! concept design team have put together is one of my ‘tips’ for easy card making.

Tranquil Tide….

Berry Burst…

There are so many sentiments in the stamp set, it’d be easy to make a heap of cards using your favourite colours & layouts, and keep them for when you next need a card in a hurry!

Or make up the card basics and then add the sentiment as you’re rushing out the door!!!

The kit cards are good for this too – and the beautiful colours & design of the Soft Sayings kit make them perfect for all occasions!

If you finish your kits cards in a hurry, Stampin’ Up! have introduced a refill for the kit this year.

You get all the card making materials and can use the blocks, inks & stamp sets you already own.


Thanks for hopping with me today.  Next up on your journey is Cheryl Algie and her great variety of projects!

ESAD Blog Hop – 2017 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek

Image may contain: text

There’s lots of excited Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and customers this week, because we’re only a few sleeps away from the release of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue!

To spread some more of that excitement, a group of demonstrators from the ESAD Facebook page are getting together today to participate in a Sneak Peek blog hop.

Image may contain: text

You’re going to see lots of amazing samples as you hop around more than 20 blogs of talented Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.

If you’re already on the way then you’ve just seen the gorgeous work of my friend Lou Kitzelman.  I’ll take this opportunity to give her a big pat on the back for all the hard work she does to organise these blog hops!

And now on to my creations!

Today’s shares are all about one of the bundles you’ll be able to order in the new catalogue.

I’m feeling quite sneaky today because I have the pleasure of sharing something with you that not too many people have had the chance to play with – yet – but I know will be in the shopping carts of many on Thursday.

It’s the Circle Tab Punch and Tabs for Everything stamp set!

The Tabs for Everything Stamp Set was in our bag at the April OnStage event (so lucky!) and the Circle Tab Punch appeared in my beautiful box of products for my display stamping board for OnStage #demoperks

Apart from it’s amazing uses… cards, scrapbook pages, organisation and the new planner (!!!), one of the best things about this product set is the price!

The bundle is only $54.75 in Australia and $66.50 in New Zealand!  All new bundles in the catalogue are priced to give you a 10% discount.


I used the punch in my display board samples (see them here and here) – on it’s own and with complementary products, but as with many Stampin’ Up! products, it really comes into it’s full amazinglness when used as a coordinating set.

To show you the wonderful potential, I’ve paired it one of the new DSPs.

It’s bright & fun – you’re going to love the Pick A Pattern DSP!!!

This pattern seemed perfect for the paintbrush stamp from the Crafting Forever stamp set.

ESAD Blog Hop - 2017 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek | kelly kent

I’ve used the tab on the edge of the centre panel for the ‘happy’ sentiment and the ‘birthday’ sentiment in the Classic Label punch.

ESAD Blog Hop - 2017 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek | kelly kent


The colours in this DSP are gorgeous!

ESAD Blog Hop - 2017 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek | kelly kent

For this card, I’ve used the punch negative as a little cubby for the animals – which are fussy cut from the Pick A Pattern DSP.

 

ESAD Blog Hop - 2017 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek | kelly kent

And the ‘hello’ sentiment from the Tabs for Everything stamp set – it’s packed full of cute (and practical) little words!


The final card uses the camera/photo page from the DSP – and following that theme, I created a film strip using the stamps from the Tabs for Everything stamp set.

ESAD Blog Hop - 2017 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek | kelly kent

With a tab pull at the end – of course!

ESAD Blog Hop - 2017 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek | kelly kent

Did you notice the use of the Classic Label Punch in these creations?  It’s not part of the bundle, but many of the sentiments fit this punch perfectly.

I am a huge fan of the Classic Label Punch – and the ability to punch out sentiments (and get them straight!).


If that wasn’t enough to tip the Circle Tab Punch onto your wishlist, then you might be tempted about how easy it is to create catalogue tabs for your new catty!

Catalogue Tabs - Stampin' Up! 2017 Annual Catalogue | kelly kent

With just the Circle Tab Punch, 3/4″ circle and the {FREE} Catalogue Tab downloads below, you’ll be able to totally organise your catalogue!

Catalogue Tabs - Stampin' Up! 2017 Annual Catalogue | kelly kent

Print the tab labels onto Whisper White cardstock, punch using the 3/4″ circle, attach to the left side of the tab and fold in half around each page, attaching at the rectangle tab section to create a sturdy tab.

Catalogue Tabs - Stampin' Up! 2017 Annual Catalogue | kelly kent

I’ve suggested colours & page numbers – but this part is really up to you!

All my tabs sit on the right hand side of the catalogue, regardless of whether the section starts on this page or the even page number before it.

Mr Papercraft’s Ice Cream Van

It’s a big happy birthday to Mr Papercraft today!!!

He’s a tough customer to make cards for because his hobbies are all very similar.

Over the years, his cards have had very strong diving, fishing & boating themes.


When I saw the ice cream truck stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue, I knew this was the perfect card for 2017!

Mr P loves food made or sold from a truck!

Every festival & fair we go to, he’s in there buying ice creams and hot dogs and donuts (well, the donuts might be mine!).

{He also loves Lindt chocolate!}

Tasty Trucks Birthday Card. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.


Tasty Trucks is one of the free product choices during Sale-A-Bration 2017.  Yours to select with any $90 order until 31st March 2017.

Tasty Trucks Birthday Card. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

I used the new Love Notes Framelits to create a money pocket at the bottom of the card and tied it all up with the new cotton ribbon.

So when the ice cream truck next cruises by, he’s gone some loose change to buy a birthday ice cream!


I am always so inspired by Judy May – her card inside are as amazing as her card fronts!

Part of my 2017 crafting resolutions is to go the extra mile on the insides of my cards!

Tasty Trucks Birthday Card. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.


One of the new products I’m loving from the Occasions Catalogue is the Watercolour Pencils.  They are beautiful on their own and amazing when finished with a blender pen or Aqua Painter.

For this card, I coloured using the Watercolor Pencils and went over the top with my blender pen, smoothing out the colour.

Tasty Trucks Birthday Card. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

Colouring isn’t my strong point – and not something I do often, but these pencils are just a dream to use.  They make it so easy to get a good coverage!

A little more practice and I might even be a convert!


The pencils come in a cute little box, but I can see that getting ratty over time – plus it’s a little tricky to see what colours are inside.

So, I’m housing my pencils in a clear case.  They will store perfectly with my Stampin’ Write Markers and I can pop other things into the case like a Blender Pen & pencil sharpener.

Watercolor Pencils - Clear Case Insert. Free Printable. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

If you think this would be a great way to store your pencils, then download my free printable insert by clicking here (file download via Dropbox).

The correct size for printing is 17.8cm x 14.3cm.

You can find other printable inserts for Stampin’ Write Markers & Ink Refills by searching my storage category.

If you need to purchase clear cases, you can find them in my online store.  They are great for a range of stamping storage!!!


Happy birthday wishes to Mr Papercraft!  I hope you enjoy all the stamps I bought you (hehe just kidding…maybe).
