Although it was biting cold, we had a fun day in Nelson on Saturday at our New Catalogue “Dirty” Extravaganza!  Each of the projects were geared towards a somewhat messy technique (mine the least so), so we had a lot of fun and trying new things.

The By the Shore Designer Series Papers and the coordinating Seaside Shore stamp set are perfect for nautical projects, appealing to almost anybody!

Here I’ve used them for a layout project of my girls (from years ago) swimming in Florida:

Create the fun circle embellishments  by nesting two of the Circles Framelits to create a “visually light” circle.

Blooms & Wishes Rip & Flip Technique

When I was on the Grand Vacation in Hawaii last year, my friend Marelle Taylor showed us a fun, easy way to get 72 card fronts out of a single pack of 12×12 papers.  She calls this technique the Rip & Flip:

stampin up blooms wishes bliss rip & FlipThe concept here is to cut the 12×12 into 4×6 pieces, tear off the bottom third, and flip the paper over to create a card front.

stampin up blooms and wishes and bliss rip and flipI chose to use the Bliss & Blooms Designer Series Paper because (1) it has two colour ways in the pack and (2) each piece of the printed paper has a printed side and a more solid side, making it pretty perfect for this technique.

stampin up blooms wishes rip and flip blissThe Blooms & Wishes stamp set coordinate perfectly with these paper, too, for a complete set for a great project.

Please check out my upcoming events – I’d love to have you join us!
