CLEAR CASE INSERTS – 2019 In Colors

Can you believe that in just over a week we’ll be enjoying yet another sensational new catalogue release!  On 4th June, it’s go-go-go time for the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue.  Hopefully you’ve been able to get a hard copy from your beautiful demonstrator and have been planning out that shopping list!

If you don’t have a demonstrator, live in Australia and still need a copy of the catalogue, I’d love to send you one.  Just send me a message on FB or contact me by email.


One of the first purchases I make each year is the new In Colors.  For the 2019-2021 period, I’m excited to have 5 new gorgeous colours join us!

Introducing the new In Colors…

Can you spot an immediate favourite?  One of these colours has been on my colour wishlist forever – can you guess which one???


New colours mean new storage – click on the link below to download Clear Case Inserts for the 2019-21 range.

If you need Clear Case Inserts that I’ve released previously, please visit the main page (click here) where you’ll find them all ready to download.

Note: Clear Case Inserts need to be printed with settings for ‘actual size’.  I am based in Australia and therefore, the case inserts are made for A4 paper sizing.  If you ‘shrink to fit’, you’ll find the proportions don’t match the clear cases.



Thank you for visiting each year to download my clear case inserts.  Your traffic helps sustain my blog and allows me to continue to offer them free of charge.  Share the word with other Stampin’ Up! storage addicts!

You can also subscribe to my blog so that you never miss a thing.

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.

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).

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.

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.

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop | Lots of Happy

Hello everyone!  It’s been a little quiet on the blog this week as I balance finding some craft time together with going back to work.  10 weeks of long service leave went way too quickly!!!

I’m checking back in today with the Stamping Sunday Design Team to share ideas for two of the kits in the Occasions Catalogue.

Join the team as they share spin off designs & projects from the Lots of Happy Kit & Perennial Birthday Kit.

For the full link up list, click on the cute little blue froggie.

View the kits in the online store by clicking on the links below…

The Lots of Happy Kit is an all-inclusive kits and supplies all the materials you need for 20 cards including envelopes.  You’ll also get a stamp set to keep, black ink spot, 4 watercolour pencils, ombre ribbon and dimensionals.  2 of the Watercolour Pencil colours are exclusive to this kit!  You may like to purchase an Aqua Painter to use with the Watercolour Pencil if you don’t already own one.

The Perennial Birthday card coordinates with the gorgeous Perennial Birthday stamp set.  You can choose to use stamps you already have in your collection to finish this kit or purchase the Perennial Birthday stamp set to use with the kit.  This kit has supplies for 16 cards, including envelopes and a beautiful storage box for the finished set of cards – complete with dividers.


All Stampin’ Up! kits come with written instructions and videos are available on the Stampin’ Up! YouTube channel.  Click here to visit.

I love using the kits as extra supplies in my stash to create some different designs.

Today I’m sharing three cards I’ve made using supplies from the kit together with the Wood Textures DSP.

Lots of Happy Kit | kelly kent

The first card I made used the flower cut out from the kit, the watercolour pencils and the ‘lots + lots of happy’ sentiment.

Lots of Happy Kit | kelly kent

By changing the background to the Stitched Shapes squares cut from a series of scraps I had from another Wood Textures DSP project, I was able to change the look from the card kit designs to something completely different!

Continuing on with the Wood Textures theme, I used another sentiment to create a birthday card…

And a final one using the Waterfront stamp set and another sentiment from the Lots of Happy Kit…

Lots of Happy Kit | kelly kent

This stamp set is photopolymer so I’ve cut the thank you part away from the ‘for being a friend’ part so I can use just the thank you or join it back together on the block and use all of it.

I love that the all-inclusive kits give you a stamp set to keep!  They are always full of a variety of useful sentiments.

If you’d like to store yours with your other stamp sets, you can purchase the clear cases as a pack of 4 and download & print the case cover by clicking on the link image below.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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).
