Last Friday I had the pleasure of hosting a dinner and discussion meeting with those titled Silver Elite and above in my team.  And as a show of appreciation for their efforts and achievements, I made them each a little gift:

I know we all know this, but it was so personally rewarding to make something heartfelt and handmade.

Amazing what a little colour can do to transform a project.  Here I’ve used Sweet Sugarplum, Dapper Denim, and Mint Macaron. On the second version I used Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry, and Old Olive.   And of course have used the versatile Botanical Builder dies.

And look what Julia Leece surprised me with:

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:

stampin up by the shore seaside nautical layoutI wanted to keep this fresh looking with the soft colours, with just a bit of grunge and texture.

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

Helping Me Grow Black & White Scrapbooking Layout

I have this fun Black and White layout idea in my head for a while – and it was so much fun to make!  I was going for striking colours with just a bit of vintage, which is my favorite sort of look.

stampin up helping me grow layering love black white layoutThe gorgeous flowers from Helping Me Grow are stamped across the bottom for a graphical border.  As you can see, the journaling is not only functional, but also fills in excess white space.

stampin up helping me grow black white scrapbook layout meshI used the Bloomin’ Hearts die to create a faux lace look under the photo section.

This is a great layout for recapping a big event, a milestone, or an entire year.  I’ve used the Large Number Framelits as my title – perfect for annual recaps, anniversaries, birthdays, or a school year.

stampin up grateful 2015 emboss resist layoutThere are quite a number of techniques on this layout, the most prominent being the shaded background.  I loved teaching this one in class and seeing all the many different ways this turned out.

Going Global Masculine “My Guy” Layout

I am really, really pleased with how this one turned out.   And I will divulge that it brought a tear to my dear husband’s eye.

I wanted to use the awesome Going Global set for a layout before it disappears:

I created the background with strips of the Going Places Paper Stack.

stampin up jacque williams stamphappy new zealand going global places brick wall fauxI’ve created a cool brick wall detail using the Brick Wall Embossing Folder – a MUST HAVE – in two of the corners.  Hubby likes the beat-up, natural look.   The Antique Brads are a second MUST!

stampin up jacque williams stamphappy new zealand going global masculine layout places diyI used the Going Global stamp set for the subtitle. I did rearrange the sentiment stamp a little so it would fit and work with this particular die, currently a real favorite.

Color Blocking Layout – Kindred Spirits

I fell in love with the First Sight stamp set when I saw it at our Stampin’ Up! training event (OnStage) in November.  Romantic, beautiful flourishes – what’s not to love?

Today’s share is a scrapbooking layout I created featuring this beautiful stamp set:

stampin up first sight scrapbooking layout 2 blushing bride vintage color blocking

Being February, I really wanted to do a layout with a love theme (although most of them already are!).  I do like the concept of color blocking or squares as it’s an easy way to fit a lot of photos on AND a great way to teach little techniques on a smaller canvas.

stampin up bloomin heart scrapbooking layout 2These cute little flowers come with the Bloomin’ Heart die – that gorgeous, lacy heart that is so popular at the moment.

stampin up first sight blushing bride embossingPaper-piercing has always been a favorite of mine.  I love subtle details.  Best of all – this is a non-consumable, so use the paper piercing tool over and over and over.

I’ve also chosen to edge the pieces using WHITE ink this time for a leather, frosted look rather than an aged look.

stampin up first sight summer silhouettes scrapbooking The Summer Silhouettes stamp set makes an appearance to balance all the flourishes.  The accents here are from the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit (see below).  Such cute little sparkly enamel dots!

Happy Waitangi Day and thanks for reading!  Shopping list is below and if you haven’t seen it already, please check out my new Virtual Stamp Club for those preferring online classes and purchases!

Grateful for You Scrapbooking Layout

The challenge I gave myself was to use many of the fabulous products in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalogue in a non-Christmas way.  A sampler is one of my “go to” layouts because it allows for many pictures, a clean design, to use up bits and pieces, lots of flexibility, and the chance to showcase quite a few products:

stampin up festive flower punch scrapbooking layoutI chose Mint Macaron, Basic Black and Very Vanilla as my colour palette.  Rich Razzleberry adds a tiny accent in each square.

stampin up woodland friends thanksgiving title layout I just adored this stamp from Thankful Forest Friends – what a lovely saying, perfect for home decor, cards, and layouts.   I’ve stamped it here in multiple colours to pull the palette together.

stampin up shaker grateful gold mint macaron sequinHow fun to have a shaker element on a page!  I used sequins and microbeads here.  I will miss the Black Glimmer Paper – be sure and stock up on that goody before it retires in a few week’s time!

stampin up festive flower punch gold mint macaron scrapbooking layoutI’ve had a flower like this in mind for months!    I’ve used the Festive Flower punch to make a bit more “delicate” flower by using Vanilla and hollowing out some of the petals.  This punch is so versatile!

stampin up jingle all the way sleigh ride watercolour wishes

Love these Sleigh Ride Edgelits!  I didn’t use the sleigh one, of course, but the trees and the houses. Snip the smoke off of the houses to make them more “general”.   The sentiment is from the Watercolor Wishes Card Kit – nice to use the stamp set for other things than just the kit.

There is still time to order your supplies for projects or to give as gifts!  I also do vouchers if you prefer.

Happy Together Monochromatic Scrapbooking Layout

Today’s share is a recent layout I made featuring the Butterfly Thinlits Dies and the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  As well as lots and lots of embossing!

stampin up endless thanks crazy about you 3 photo monochromatic scrapbooking layoutThe colours are simple so the photos really stand out, but the techniques here are not so simple. It took a fair bit of puzzling to get it all to work, but the clients who have come to this class so far have done very well!

stampin up butterfly dies scrapbooking layout embossing

It’s been a fun discovery to learn how to colour the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and has really opened up so many possibilities!  Love the shaded effect and the sparkle of these delicate butterflies on this pretty page.   And the embellishment is from the Wonderland series in the Holiday Catalogue (see below).

stampin up hello you scrapbooking layout monochromatic 3 photoUsed over and over and over, love the Crazy About You bundle for scrapbooking layouts!  I’ve just glued it down in a few places here to keep the dimensional look all the embossing provides.  The new Fine Tip Glue Pen is a must for fine pieces.

stampin up hidden tags endless thanks layout scrapbookingA couple of hidden tags with a bit of ribbon of colour make the layout even more interesting.   It’s important to journal and to include your own handwriting at least some of the time.   A hidden tag is a great way to write without “ruining the layout” or to write things very personal.
