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.

You can order there or Contact me to add your order. 

Don’t forget to add the Host Code in the checkout on the store.  Host Code – WF9YsVMB

Just days left to get this month’s Tutorial too.

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,

A SIMPLE POPPY CARD!

This card was one of the Make and Takes we had for Onstage in November.  I never made any of my cards that day – but then I usually don’t.  It’s the time to chat to people and I have to say it can get a little stressful when you have to make the cards in a short amount of time.  So I usually bring them home to make.

I only managed to complete the card this week.  I changed it up a little to what it was meant to be.  That’s ok. 🙂  The card is aimed for a beginner stamper.  One who is just starting out and doesn’t have a lot of products.  It’s basic stamping with little or no colouring or any diecutting.

I added a little more background stamping with the poppies and leaves using the Painted Poppies stamp set.  These were in poppy Parade.

On a piece of white card I stamped a poppy just off the top edge of the card and then added the Happy Birthday from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  I lightly sponged some Poppy Parade ink around the edge of the card.  I haven’t done that for a very long time.  I used to add it all the time but now I tend to leave the card clean – if I can describe it like that.

The strips of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper were adhered straight down on to the Poppy Parade card base and the white stamped piece was raised up with Dimensionals.  Before doing that I added a little piece of the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.  Of course finish with bling.

Hope you like my version of the card.  There have been a few versions of this card from those who went to Onstage.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

ALL DRESSED UP BACKPACK!

Have you seen these cutie bags around the internet?  They are made with the All Dressed Up Dies from the Best Dressed Suite.  So sweet. ❤

This is one I made for my presentation at Onstage.  By changing the handles you can make it in to a backpack.

I kept it simple and didn’t add a tag on this one but it is easy to do.  You don’t need too much with this gorgeous paper from the Best Dressed Designer Series paper. 

Cut the buckle out using the die and add that to the strip before adhering the handle to the bag. To add the handle, adhere one end of the strip inside the front of the bag.  The other end, fold over the end a little and then adhere this to the back of the bag checking the position of the handle so you have a little curve happening.

A few people have commented about cutting the paper with these dies that they tend to be “cutting” rather than “scoring” on the bag.  I would suggest play around with the layers on your diecutting machine. You may need a shim on the top of your plates.  Alternatively, if you have a soft mat place that as your top cutting plate making sure the die is facing down as you don’t want to cut the mat. 🙂

Others have asked how tall these bags are. They are tiny.  It stands at the height of the Tombow multipurpose adhesive.  If fits the small notecards in which is about 7cm (3″) high.

Happy playing.

BEST DRESSED – ALWAYS IN STYLE!

Another Best Dressed card for you since I am on that roll at the moment.  I will mix it up a bit never fear. 🙂

This is a sample I made for the display board at Onstage with the Best Dressed Suite.

You don’t need much with the gorgeous Best Dressed Designer Series Paper do you?? Such pretty little flowers and pretty colours.

I added a little stamping on the Petal Pink Stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes dies. To add colour to the perfume stamp one of the “wash” stamps.  The sentiment was cut with one of the stitched labels in the All Dressed Up dies and then you can tuck one of the Best Dressed Tassels in behind it.  I used a Glue Dot to stick it down.  The Pretty Peacock strip down the side was embossed with the Lace 3D Embossing Folder to add some texture.

I think Kindness is Always In Style right.  The world needs a little more kindness.

Have a great day to you and share a little kindness today,

Jenny

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,

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.
