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….

If you’ve never owned a kit before, make sure you have a New Year’s resolution to buy one!!

If you’ve already added kits to your collection, you’re going to love the new kits available in the New Year – they are special!!!

Classes are available in the Bunbury area for you & your friends to make any style of kit under my guidance.  It’s a great social get-together.  Email me to arrange a date!

If you’d prefer to purchase a kit, I can be persuaded to put it together for you for a small cost.

What can I say, I just love making cards!!!

CASEing the Catty #148 | Kits and Memories & More

Hello!  Happy school holidays!

It’s the middle weekend of the holidays here and we’ve finally had sunshine in the last couple of days!

We’re still yet to hit what I would consider warm, but the fact that the sun is shining is a great start!

{Note the nice bright -natural – light for my photos!!!}

Welcome to a CASEing the Catty blog hop.

This talented team of designers are taking you on a creative journey that showcases how they’ve been inspired by the kits and Memories & More pages in the Annual or Holiday Catalogue.

We’d love for you to join in via our Facebook page.

I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve been sharing the virtues of this kit with my customers & friends, but I was drawn to the sample that we’ve used in the CTC graphic above!

The Watercolor Christmas Project Kit is fabulous.

It’s bright & fun without being silly and amazingly economical for a handmade Christmas card!

The kit is $35 (20 cards & gold lined envelopes!).  You can buy the coordinating stamp set – or use Christmas stamps that you already own.

From now until the beginning of December, I am offering this kit for $35 – all made up and ready to send to your favourite 20 people this Christmas.

It’s the perfect offer for people who love handmade but doesn’t have the time or inclination to make their own cards this year.

Local delivery is included, or I can post Australia wide for $8.50.

If you’d like to order a Watercolor Christmas Kit (made for you, or so you can make it yourself), send me an email or contact me via my Facebook page.


Now, apart from the kit being a great option for cards this Christmas, those easy to replicate layouts are a perfect option if you want to design your own cards using the materials you have at home.

I’ve chosen the third card along in the picture – it’s one of my all time favourite layouts and I use it all the time!

That big white space seemed like the perfect option for the newest stamp in my collection – one that I adore – the so-so-cute reindeer from the Merry Patterns stamp set.

This exclusive stamp set is only available as a hostess reward during September & October 2017.

Want to add him to your collection?  Gather your family & friends and collect orders of $450 or more and the Merry Patterns stamp set will be yours to own (see the end of this post for a complete graphic).

This card features the kit colour theme – Real Red, Emerald Envy & Basic Black.

If you’re ever not sure what the coordinating colours are for a kit or DSP, check back with your catalogue as the full colour range is always listed.

The Stampin’ Up! Online Store is also a great reference for current products.

Now, as cute as this card is, we all know I favour non-traditional Christmas colours for my cards.

So, I couldn’t resist another version in pink & gray, inspired by Lou Kitzelman’s Merry Patterns card for Colour INKspiration last week.

This is more my style!

Same cute reindeer….

Same embellishments!

Just a change up of colours – Sweet Sugarplum & Smoky Slate with Wood Textures DSP.

I also shifted the centrepiece down the card for a same-same-but-different variation.

Making cards in pairs like this is one of my favourite ways to add ‘more’ without more effort!

Which style do you favour?

Modern on the left, traditional on the right?
