DRESSED TO IMPRESS SCRAP PAGE!

I don’t do a lot of memory keeping or scrapbooking but I created this page for Onstage back in November when I presented the Dressed To Impress Bundle.  I realised I hadn’t shared it with you.

This page is of my sweet girl who is now a big girl.  She LOVED dressing up.  It was her most favourite thing to do.  Everyday she would pull out the dress ups.  I made a mini album some time ago just with photos of her in her dress ups.  She had quite the style.

This is a 12″x12″ page.  I used 3 different prints from the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper pack and layered them together. I added a few dies with the All Dressed Up Dies and a little stamping.  I think this suite is ideal for these type of photos don’t you think??? 🙂 Perhaps I need to make a few more pages with it.

The Dressed To Impress Bundle is carrying over in to the new catalogue but it won’t be as a bundle.  Buying it now will save you 10%.

The Best Dressed Designer Series Paper won’t be carrying over- grab that now before it goes.

See them in my store now -> HERE.

I actually used a different print of the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper in my project.  Here is another sneak of that too.

 

Thanks for visiting me. Have an awesome week,

MOTHER’S GIFT BAG AND CARD!

With Mother’s Day this weekend I have a Gift Bag and Card set to share with you.

This gift bag and card is created with the Best Dressed Suite.

Best Dressed Gift Bag and Card

With all the cool images on this piece of Best Dressed Designer Series Paper I didn’t need to do a lot of stamping.

I did stamp the perfume bottle from the Dressed To Impress stamp  set and coloured it to match the paper.  The bottle was stamped with the “splodge” stamp in Daffodil Delight.  Then the top was coloured with the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends. 

To finish the card I added some loops off the Mint Macaron Sheer Ribbon behind the Purple Posy diecut circle. I used both of the sentiment shapes and layered them together.

For the bag diecut the bag twice in the Mint Macaron card and then diecut two from the paper.  Then trim off the sides of the paper diecut piece and adhere them on to the bag.

For the tag I cut the perfume bottle off the paper to match it all.

A sweet little gift set for any special person.

This Dressed To Impress Bundle of the stamps and dies will be carried over in to the new catalogue but buying it now as a bundle will save 10%.  The paper won’t be carried over so if you want it grab it now.

See it in my store now -> HERE.

Thanks for stopping by,

SUNDAY SUITES – BEST DRESSED SUITE!

Sunday Suites are back for 2020.  This week since I have been sharing projects with the Best Dressed Suite let’s have a closer look at the whole suite.

I think the Best Dressed Suite is a really fun one and can be quite classy too.

This is what is included in the entire Best Dressed Suite Bundle.

The Best Dressed Suite Bundle includes:

* Dressed to Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set (10% off)
* All Dressed Up Dies (10% off)
* Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper
* Mint Macaron 1/8″ (3.2 cm) Sheer Linen Ribbon
* Best Dressed 3″ x 3″ (7.6 x 7.6 cm) Note Cards & Envelopes
* Best Dressed Tassels

Colours used in the suite are: Blackberry Bliss, Daffodil Delight, Lovely Lipstick, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, Mint Macaron.

Let’s have a closer look at the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper.  It is gorgeous.  One side has stylish images, the other side has floral prints either large or small.

One thing I learned when preparing my projects for Onstage was that the larger floral prints have been designed with white spaces around the flowers so you can easily fussy cut them to add directly to your projects.  I will share more about that on another post.

The Best Dressed Notecards and envelopes make really quick note cards to give to others.  They have a partly printed “swoosh” on the front of the card and the envelopes are printed on as well.  There are 24 in total with the cards and envelopes and they come in Daffodil Delight, Purple Posy and Petal Pink.  They are really sweet.  They are little cards measuring 3″x3″ or 7.6cm x 7.6cm.

What about some samples with these mini notecards.  These are straight from the catalogue. The notecards fit nicely inside the bag too so that gives you an idea of the size of the bag.

The All Dressed Dies are really fun.  They make the sweetest little bags.  You can change them up anyway you like.  See the samples below.  I have created a few fun bags already that I will share with you soon.

Don’t forget the Best Dressed Tassels as well.  There are 18 in total. 6 each in Petal Pink, Pretty Peacock and Whisper White.  With the White ones too you can colour them with the Stampin’ Blends or sit them in a little dish with reinker and water.

In the dies set is the long stitched die.  It’s great for the handles on your bags or I have used it as an edging but what about this fun idea.  Add the strips to the front of a card to create added texture.  This card sample is from Stampin’ Up!

So what do you think of the Best Dressed Suite?? Fun hey??

BEST DRESSED – LIPSTICK STREAK!

Another card for you today with the Best Dressed Suite.  This was another project I shared at Onstage last November with this suite.

The Dressed To Impress stamp set has some cute images and some really fun “wash” type images.  These washes are great to add colour to the cute images as an alternative to colouring them with the inks or the Stampin’ Blends, or you can use them as background stamping.

The stamp set is below so you get an idea.

I wanted to show a different way of using one of the longer “wash” streaks.  As you can see in the card below, use it as a nice long lipstick steak.  Make it any colour you like, BUT – Be as Bold As Your Lipstick. 🙂

For this card a piece of the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper was cut with a large Stitched Rectangles Dies and then one was cut on white card with a smaller of the rectangles.

On the Lovely Lipstick base card stamp some of the smaller flowers in the top left corner and the bottom right corner with Lovely Lipstick ink to give just a subtle background stamping.

On the white card stamp the “streak” across the bottom of the white card. I used Lovely Lipstick. Stamp your lipstick at an angle.  This one was coloured with the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends on the base of the lipstick.  The lipstick colour was stamped with the small circular “wash”.

Stamp the sentiment in Memento black and punch that out.  Add a few loops of the Silver Thread behind it before raising it up off the card.  Of course add some bling with the Rhinestones to finish.

Now go and streak that lipstick. 🙂

You can see this set and buy in store now -> HERE.

Don’t forget with every order with me you receive a Tutorial Bundle of 12 different projects as a little Thank you.  Plus I send out a little card and small gift to say Thanks so be sure to not mark it anonymous when you order. AND with orders over $90 you receive your choice of Free Sale-A-Bration set.  

Thanks for visiting me today.  Have a great weekend,

Jenny

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #92 – BEST DRESSED FOR DIFFERENT CRAFTERS!

Back with Wednesday’s WOW! For the year.  You might hear people talking about different types of crafters but what does all that mean – and what type of crafter are you?  Today’s Wednesday’s WOW! #92 – Looking at the different types of crafter, or you might here them being referred to as customer types.

As part of my presentation at Onstage in November I needed to talk about the different crafters and make samples to suit.  So this is a good time to share some of the cards I made using the Best Dressed Suite for these different crafters.

The different Crafter Types are Beginner, Casual and Avid. You can see the 3 cards below.

A BEGINNER CRAFTER:

– New to stamping

– Needs guidance with where to start

– Needs a good experience and sense of accomplishment

– Wants simple designs and easy to use products.

– Wants affordable products.

So the top card is suitable for a Beginner crafter.  The Note Cards and Envelopes are affordable and easy to use.  Just add some simple stamping on the card and the envelope is great to stamp on as well.

 

A CASUAL CRAFTER:

– Likes to be helped when crafting

– Crafts occasionally

– More likely to copy projects

– Likes simple designs

– Needs crafting to fit the time they have

– Has less funds available for supplies

– Likes multiple uses for products

The card above is still simple in design but uses a little more products.  The paper adds an extra touch to the card but is still affordable.  Limited tools are needed to make the card. By layering the lipstick this will add some dimension to the card.  The lipstick is easy to fussy cut if the crafter doesn’t have a die-cutting machine.

 

AN AVID CRAFTER: 

– Crafts daily to weekly

– Frequently creates projects from scratch

– Does like a casual experience occasionally

– Makes crafting part of their lifestyle

– Frequently buys and uses the products

– Buys more frequently than beginner and casual crafters

– “collects” products

– Likes specialised products

The above card is suitable for an Avid crafter.  It has several layers adding dimension to the card. It uses a number of different products as in the dies and the papers and even a little Wink of Stella sparkle on the lipstick.  An Avid crafter loves it all and wants it all.  Do you know an avid crafter?? 😉

****

So what type of crafter are you??  Are you a “collector”of crafting products? do you stamp frequently??   I think I waver between a Casual and Avid stamper.  I like projects to be quick and I have a simple style but I do create often and like to have some “tools”.

Hope you found this helpful or slightly interesting at least.  Maybe it inspires you in some way. 🙂

How ever often you create or what style you create I hope you enjoy it and that you be sure you take time for you to create.  It’s important for the soul.

Have a great day,

Jenny

BEST DRESSED – HELLO FABULOUS!

Last November I presented with the Best Dressed Suite at the Onstage event in Sydney.  I have lots of projects with this bundle and I can’t wait to share them with you now.  So over the next few days and week you will see some cute samples.

Today’s card was not one from my presentation but was a sample I created for the display.

Hello Fabulous! Isn’t that a great sentiment?? 🙂

I just used some of the gorgeous Best Dressed Designer Series Paper.  There are some great label dies in the All Dressed Up dies.  I layered them together.  You know what I love about these dies?? They are stitched!! YAY!

If you look closely the Pretty Peacock strips under the paper is using the Stitched strip die.  It just shows a little edge of stitching peering out.  It’s adds another dimension to your card.  Finish the card off with some loops of the Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon under the sentiment labels.

The Best Dressed Suite is available now in store.  You can grab the Dressed To Impress Bundle or grab the whole suite. 🙂  See them -> HERE.

Stop back here for more projects with this suite.  It’s such a fun one.
