Snowman Slider

Slider cards are always a good option if you want a card with ‘wow’ factor.

Everyone loves moving parts – especially the young and young at heart!

The mechanism for every slider card is the same – create a track using a punch or framelits, make a sliding component and add a shape to the top.

I was using coins for my slider component until a child tore apart my handmade card to get to the coins…. so I’ve swapped to washers!!!

My Tuesday class asked to make a slider card last month so they could see all the steps of putting it together.

With Christmas on the agenda, it seemed like a good idea to put the Seasonal Chums stamp set & framelits to work!

Seasonal chums are great because they have a matching framelit!  Simpy snip around the snowman’s hat where the tag was designed to fold – such an easy shape!!!

The other stamp set you see is the Watercolor Christmas stamp set.

As well as being the coordinating stamp set for the the amazing Watercolour Christmas Project Kit, this set is just perfect for cards.

It has large sentiments in a cute font and some fun coordinating images.

The DSP for the slider track is the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP.  I’ve reinforced it with a layer of Whisper White cardstock to make sure it holds up to all that sliding fun.

The slider track for this card is made using the Classic Label Punch.

I punched the entire shape at each edge (lining up the outer edge of the punch with the edge of the cardstock) and then joined the two shapes by punching again in the middle.

Hello September – Let’s Holiday!

Hello September | kelly kent

Hello!  Well, didn’t that go quickly!!!  August is done!

It’s September and I’m back in the land of blogging.

The little break was lovely and gave me time to slow down the extreme crafting speed and spread my time a little more evenly between my family, friends and other hobbies.

We had some unseasonably warm and sunny weather over the last weekend – which just finished off my month wonderfully!!!  I’m hoping there’s lots more of that to come.

What does September hold?

I’ll be creating again for the design teams I’m lucky enough to be a part of, so watch out for those posts.

There will also be a scrap camp in the mix, more classes and of course, a new catalogue to play with!

If you don’t have a copy of the new Holiday Catalogue, which starts today and runs through til 2nd January 2018, I can send one anywhere in Australia.

If you’d like to view an online copy, click here.

As always, one of my loves from the new catalogue is all the gorgeous DSP!

I have DSP shares available for anyone in Australia who wants it all but at a fraction of the price –

If 96 pieces of beautiful paper takes your fancy, please send me an email (or leave a comment here) and I’ll make it happen!

As a ‘welcome back to blogging’ gift, everyone who orders from me in September will get one of these cute little treat pouches.

September Treats | kelly kent

This is the hot chocolate variety, but there’s also a coffee treat if that’s more your thing!

The cute little pouch is a ‘diaper fold’ and made using a 6″ x 6″ piece of DSP!

They make great gifts for colleagues, friends and people you want to give a gift to over the festive period.

September may seem a little early to get started on gifts, but 25th Dec will be here before we know it!!!

If I can help you with anything from the Holiday Catalogue, please let me know!

My classes are still running during September.  Would you like to join us?

I’d love to see you!
