Kylie’s International Highlights

The past month seems to have flown as it is that time when once again I am playing along with Kylie’s International Blog Highlights.

This month the theme is “Teacher’s Gifts“.  I don’t have any need for these gifts, but it is lovely to create something different & be out of your comfort one at the same time.

Not sure of what is Kylie’s International Highlights?   It is where Demonstrators from all around the world take part in a monthly Blog Highlight.  It’s a great way to get to know other Demonstrators & see projects using current Stampin’ Up!® product.

Vote for Me HereWhat is so different about this Blog Highlight?  YOU get to vote for your top 5 favourites.  The top ten will then get to take part in an international blog hop with Kylie & other talented successful demonstrators.

What do I do?  All you have to do is click on the “Vote for Me” photo at the side or head on over to Kylie’s Blog, click on the heart in the top right hand side of the picture.  I’m #5!

My project today is actually one that I created for one of my “Creative Classes” using theDeliightful-Daisy-Post-It-NDelightful Daisy” Suite.  This Suite is my all time favourite from the Annual Catalogue but haven’t really showcased any of the cards I’ve created.  I sometimes remember AFTER I’ve mailed the cards that I hadn’t taken any photos.

I think Post-It Note Holders are always very handy, so while creating my holder, I thought I would do something a little different & turn it into the shape of a “bag”.  The handle has been created using the gorgeous Daffodil Delight Double Stitched Ribbon.  Don’t you love it?

Seeing as though the ‘bag” was so cute, I thought it would be lovely to have a matching Delightful-Daisy-Cardcard to go with the gift, so out came the Suite once again.  I’m glad I did, as I am a little happy with the final result.

The gorgeous Petal Burst EF has been used both on the bag & the card – not sure if you can easily see it.  It finished the projects off perfectly.

I am loving the coordinating little “bag” & the card.  I do hope you do too.

Be sure to check out all the other lovely creations when you pop on over to Kylie’s Blog .  Don’t forget to go & vote for the ones you love & leave them a little love!

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

2017 Diary

Last week when  a group of us went out for lunch we were a given a small pocket diary.  One of the girls had just been to the Blood Bank, saw them & thought of me (I’m either a little20170312_065326_resized late or very early – like a week), so she grabbed a handful.  I’ve just got to remember to use it & take it with me.

Of course, as we all do, I decided that it needed a bit of a facelift, so I decided to “tissy” it up & make it my own.  The girls won’t see it until our next catch up next month.

I decided to cover it with the “By the Shore” DSP.  Then I thought I would add a few stamps, so I went with the matching “Seaside Shore” Stamp Set.  I stamped the Bubbles & Seaweed onto a piece of Very Vanilla CS with Mint Macaron Ink  & coloured a couple of them with my Blender Pen.  This was die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits & layered onto a piece of Dapper Denim which had been punched with my 2″ Circle Punch.

The fish was stamped onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS in Dapper Denim Ink & adhered to the Circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thinking it needed something else, I then decided to place my name at the bottom.  I die cut a couple of letters using “Little Letters” (retired) from scrap Very Vanilla & then from Dapper Denim.  The extra pieces when layered on top of each other, make them stand out a little, especially when using DSP or have a busy background.

To finish it all off, Clear wink of Steller was applied to the letters & fish.

I think the girls will be very impressed when they see it, don’t you?

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
