New Catalogues arrive today!! #yourstampinscrapbooker

keep-calm-the-new-catalog-is-hereWell, ALMOST! HAHA My favourite UPS guy should be here today and/or tomorrow with my numerous boxes of catalogues as well as my preorder of lots of new stamps and products!!

If you are a current or past customer, you will be on my list for a new catalogue.  I have my bin refilled by tomorrow (hopefully) so if you stop by my house on the weekend, you should be able to grab one.  Watch for a post on my Facebook group to confirm.  I’m going away to Canmore for a scrapbooking retreat weekend, so if they don’t come today, I won’t have any out until Monday.  Again, just watch for a Facebook update.

I will start delivering and mailing out next week!! I am also including a color revamp cheat sheet for you in side the catty so you can look at it and see which are the new colors in the collections and where some of our colors have moved collections.  We also created the “basics” as a new collection.

Remember to check the clearance and watch for any discounts on retiring products before May 31st which is the last day for the current catalogue.  If you need me to order, let me know, or, of course, you can always order online 24/7 from the comfort of your pjs!

SHOP HERE!

#Outlander card exchange #Outlander crafts club Order yours!

I’m was super excited to partake in my first exchange as a part of the Facebook group “Outlanders craft club”.  They often do a monthly exchange of all things crafty and I knew I couldn’t resist passing up on a card exchange!! Sadly, I have not yet received a card from the member whom was supposed to send me one, so either it hasn’t made it yet, or I was an unlucky winner of someone whom couldn’t follow through on a commitment (not bitter, more disappointed in my luck, but still holding out for it to show up, at least for a while longer).

Here is the card I made using both Stampin Up and Kindred Stamps products. The card is larger than a traditional card as it measures 6 x 6 inches, it makes it have just that extra bit of wow factor as it sits on display!

The Jamie and Claire stamps, as well as the “Je suit prest” are included in the Outlander themed stamp set by Kindred Stamps called “Travel Through the Stones”, which, according to the site is currently sold out.

Everything else is Stampin Up and, if currently available, can be purchased from my online store! 

Here is a list of all the products to purchase: (keep scrolling if you’d like to order a card handmade by me!)

NOTE: *The punch I used to cut out the Jamie and Claire has long since retired. The cut outs are about 1 1/2 by 2 1/4 inches.

#OnStage2018 #StampinUp SWAPs!

For my swaps for this year’s OnStage 2018, I chose to use the Cross of Hope Framelits Dies and the Inspired Events stamp set.  This year is a big year for our family, Olivia and I have been attending the sacramental prep classes at our church all winter and she had her first reconciliation back in January.  This coming June she will have her much awaited first communion.   I knew I wanted to create a special card for this and have volunteered to create and donate these cards to our church for each of the kids in the sacramental class.  So after making fifty of these for my swaps, I will dive back in starting this week to create about another 40.

Watermarked(2018-04-17-1035)

For OnStage, I did 25 in the blushing bride and 25 in the soft sky.  I will admit, I’m a bit sad to say goodby to soft sky as it is retiring, but there are so many amazing new and returning colors, I’m sure my sadness will be short-lived 🙂

Watermarked(2018-04-17-1036)

I used very vanilla as a card base, then the coloured card stock, which I stamped the words and heat embossed in the gold powder.  That was followed by the Bundle of Love designer series paper (I am going to use the sale a ration Springtime Foils that I’ve collected going forward as I think it will accomplish the same effect).

The next layer is a scalloped cut from the Layering Circles framlits, in addition to the card stock cut in the smaller circle.  Lastly, the cross from the Cross of Hope framlits.  A bit of advice, for these detailed cuts, I do need to run the Big Shot back and forth about 4 times, then I pop out the framlit, and relocate it on the Big shot a couple of times. I take a look to ensure it is completely cut before taking it out. Might seem a bit tedious, but life is so much easier when you make sure it is all cut, as it easily pops right out.  I do lightly use the Big Shot brush and a paper piercer for smaller bits on occasion.  Once you get the hang of it, it’s amazing.  I say this so you don’t get frustrated by any of the finer detailed thinlits, it has taken me a while and patience to get here.  🙂

#StampinUp color revamp 2018-2019

What’s a color revamp?  Have you seen the retiring catalogue items and got super confused about what is happening?  Let me sum it up in very simple terms – Here’s the scoop!

  1. A color revamp is more than a refresh, it means there are some significant changes to the current color collections and products.
  2. Yes, 13 core colours are retiring!  So order your ink refills asap to stock up before they run out or May 31st, whichever comes first.
  3. Yes, there are still new colours and not just in-colors! Colors have been added to our regular color collections – my new fav is “merry merlot”!
  4. Yes, retired colors from the past have been brought back and inserted within our collections.
  5. A new collection has been created – “The Basics” including whisper white, very vanilla and basic black.
  6. Stampin Up is retiring the Archival basic black.  Get your refills asap.  They have brought back Jet Black Stazon On and you can still get Momento black to use as your every day black ink.
  7. YES, there is a new stamp pad case design!! Stackable, more light-weight, includes defomer in the ink and yes, you can still add your old refills to the new pads.  I will do another post just about the stamp pad cases, watch for that at a later date.

Are you a visual person? Me, too, so here are the colors ins and outs!

So there are still new in-colors as well as the “new” colors added to our collections.

Here is a complete overview of the new look:
IMG_5960

I have tried to keep this simple, but please do not hesitate to ask questions.  I’m still getting my head around it a bit too, but it is starting to fall into place 🙂

Watch my FACEBOOK live from this morning on my facebook page and I walk through all the samples of the colors from my new swatch book.

So are any favs going out? contact me for refills.  Which color(s) excite you the most? I’m in love with Merry merlot and apparently Poppy Parade has come out of retirement but it’s before my time, and I love it!  I also think the granny apple green is awesome!! I think we will all have so much fun creating with these new colours and the new in-colors have so much punch this time around too; my girls will love them!

Thanks! I know have several posts to catch up on, but had to get this one out there to field some of the many questions 🙂 Thanks for your patience and support!

Traveller’s Notebook – A new adventure #yourstampinscrapbooker

Off on two new adventures!

Our first family trip to California and Disney and my first attempt at traveller’s notebook!  I’m pretty laid back about this crafty experience, don’t have super high expectations for myself, just like the idea of sitting down in the eve to gather things we have collected, use some post-its where I’d like to put photos, do a bit of colouring and glueing embellishments and reflecting on our day!  I’m hoping this will set up my trip journalling as I usually just take a tiny notebook and write down the day’s events, highlights and maybe the food.  I’m hoping this will allow me to bring home that much more info on our trip to scrapbook in the larger format.  I’m going to try and collect more little moments, write down any funny moments/quotes/happenings to remember and come home with more detail to our memories.

I want to say a very special thank you to @kaezmum for all her help, you can find her on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCXkqN408HxSW6a0ec-Gheg

Jenn was so generous to meet me for coffee and sit down and go through the ins and outs of creating a traveller’s notebook.  She even gave me this beauty with the pineapple on it and a few other goodies to get me started!! She has some great videos on all of her travelling across Canada last year and the notebooks she created!! What an amazing souvenir to have from their six week road trip!!  For longer trips, this would be an awesome way to record as much as you can, because who is going to remember all that fun stuff later?  I’m currently starting to prepare to start to scrapbook our trip to England and Scotland last year and concluding I wish I had journaled so much more detail to the days, a learning experience that I hope to improve upon here 🙂

Here is a photo of a few things I’m taking 🙂

travellersnotebook

What have I decided to take? Because, I can tell you, if my hubby sees me coming with this, I’m going to get the lecture of, “I backpacked for a year with one backpack!”, yes, I’ve hear it every trip! haha So I’m keeping it super simple, and it is only a week, if it was longer, I’d definitely take inks and stamps and would probably invest in one of those little travel printers that Jenn has, but for this, I’m just going to stick a post-it for a photo reminder 🙂

Supplies:

  1. Zip up Bag from Thirty One Gifts – It’s called the Day by Day Case – biblebagIt’s intended for a Bible but for this trip, it’s perfect for traveller’s notebook – If you’d like to order one online, click here and you will reach my friend, Nicky, in Calgary, AB. 
  2. Traveller’s notebook – can be purchased online or at Michael’s, there are all kinds out there, I’m not sure exactly where this one came from but Jenn also makes them so there are all kinds of ideas out there.
  3. Faber Castell Gelatos – to add some each color and fun!
  4. Adhesive tape runner – Snail by Stampin Up – click here to purchase online 🙂 
  5. Washi Tape – light and simple to travel with and can add so much to the fun – I have a variety here from the princess one to Stampin Up that I’ve collected 🙂
  6. Small post-it notes to stick in for photos and notes to do later.
  7. Embellishments – I’m taking some Disney princess chipboard and some Jolee’s flip flops that are adhesive backed.
  8. Writing Utensils – I’m taking a blue pen, black Micron .08 and a few Faber Castell Pitt artist pens, I just love them, in blue, pink and gold 😉 Take whatever you prefer that is comfortable and fun.

Please comment if you have any suggestions for this newbie to the craft, I’m super excited to dig in and we are counting down the hours now until we head off to the airport.

Check out my online shop here, thanks!

Thanks! Janley #yourstampinscrapbooker
