A little project life love…

If you've taken some of my scrapbooking classes, you know how I love to add lots of details to my scrapbook pages… It would take me forever to catch up on all 3 girls's albums.  I took it upon myself to order the project life kit to speed up the process. I'm still going to make lots of very detailed pages but decided to add project life in Jordan's album.  I made a dozen of pages already.  Project life is a simple, affordable system for organizing your photos into albums.  All you need to get started are a few basic products.  Just slip your photos into the photo pocket pages and add cards with our exclusive artwork to easily document the important events in your life.  There are 6 different amazing kits in the catalogue.  You can check them out from p.162 to p.166.  The albums, photo pocket pages and more are on p.167. You need to check it out. I love the journaling pens, they come two in a package with two different widths #135304.

I love the wood banners that comes with the Hello Baby project life accessory pack #138458.  You can view a close up image below:)

I also liked the element sticker sheets in the kit.  You can place them on pictures as well.  I decided to place one on the designer card.

It also includes 4 epoxy stickers sheet…I've added a couple of cute ones on the card below.

This project life kit is from the Hello Baby Girl Project Life Card Collection #138504.  It includes 100 cards, 2 each of 50 double-sided designs in 3 sizes:  3×4, 4×4 and 4×6.  If you would like to make a baby boy album, the Hello Baby Boy project life card collection #138457 is also available.  There is also an additional Hello Baby Project Life Accessory Pack #138458.  It coordinates with either kits and it includes: 4 specialty acetate cards, 3×4; 1 alphabet sticker sheet; 1 acetate sticker sheet; 2 element sticker sheets; 4 epoxy stickers; 3 wood banners; 1 roll washi tape. On page 167 of the Stampin up catalogue, you can choose 6×8 or 12×12 variety packs project life photo pocket pages and they also have the albums.

Vellum balloons birthday card

What a gorgeous warm day, hope you are enjoying the sun….If you are following me on instagram, you get to see some of my projects, sometimes ahead of my blog post.  I guess it's easier to post with a phone when you're a working mom on the fly…. If you want to view my projects on Instagram check out my account :  riverfrontstampin

To make this birthday card, I used the vellum cardstock #101856, What's amazing about it is that it's thick enough to use with your favorite punch.  I used the balloon bouquet punch #140609, it coordinates perfectly with the balloon celebration stamp set #140675.  Love this set and the font in the stamped greetings.  I inked with versamark #102283 one of the balloon images then added white embossing powder #109132 and heated the balloons with my heat tool #129053.  A great tip:  If you rub the embossing buddy  #103083 on your punched image prior to stamping with versamark, it will minimize the specks when heating the powder.

Cardstock used for this card:  dapper denim #141414, basic black #121045, whisper white #100730 and vellum cardstock #101856.  Basic black archival ink was used #140931 and dapper denim #141394.    I also made little knots with the thick baker's twine in whisper white #141688.  These knots were glued using mini glue dots #103683.

To order the products to make vellum balloon birthday  card, don't hesitate to contact me or place your order in my online store. If you are ordering online, don't forget the check that box so I can see your details that you ordered so I can make you part of my VIP customers and reward you.  Enjoy your day, HUGS!!!

Thinking of you

I hope you are enjoying your long weekend.  Happy Canada Day!  I've enjoyed playing with this color combo (pool party, basic black and dapper denim)  Blue is my favorite color.  And this color combo seems to have brought some sort of calmness.  Before I give details on my design, I need to cover some important maintenance information:  I've loved your online orders, it's been amazing.  I would like you to note, if you are one of my online shoppers and would like to be recognized and participate in my VIP customer perks, don't forget to select my name as your demonstrator by checking the box or else it will not identify your name as the person ordering. That being, I can't send you any goodies by mail or extra perks to thank my special customers.  This is just a FYI that can give you extra Kimmie goodies:)

I've had an amazing time creating these thinking of you cards.  Love the thinking of you font.  This stamp comes from the hostess set Time of Year #141790.  For every order or party above 200$, you will receive, if selected, this hostess set for only 12$ and it's a value of 21$.  The stamp set comes with 10 other stamps.  You can view full image on my website. Another perk from this set is that it coordinates with the Bunch of banners Framelits die #141488, p.193 in your catalogue.   Contact me to host your workshop, your virtual party or place an order above 200$ and receive 10% stampin rewards.  The higher your order, the more rewards you will receive.

To create this card.  I used the stamp set swirly bird #141749. It's adorable.  It coordinates with the swirly scribbles thinlits dies #141497 on p.194.  If you get the bundle of the stamp set and die #142353, you save an extra 10%. (Suggested clear blocks to use with the Swirly Bird stamp set are A,B,C,G) I also used the dapper denim cardstock #141414, and ink pad #141394 and 3/8 ruched ribbon #141424.  To make this card pop, I added pool party cardstock #122924 and ink #126982, whisper white cardstock #100730, basic black cardstock #121045 and stamped the thinking of you greeting in the basic black archival stampin pad #140931.  And voila!

10 year celebration

Truly in stampin up style, I was sent this beautiful card from The Main office in Alberta Canada.  How simple this gesture  can put a huge smile on my face, to be recognized with a handmade card from Stampin up!'s  canadian office.  This simple card has made me reflect on my adventures as a demonstrator for Stampin'up!  I have achieved all levels:  Join for the discount,  I wanted all my products at a discount price.  I was my best customer…. I fell in love with the products, the quality, the choice, the vibrant colors, those awesome stamps and huge ink pads…lol It was love at first site.  Then, I wanted to introduce the products to my close friends, to make cards and preserve their memories by scrapbooking… I started traveling to Stampin up! events and got addicted to  the pleasure of swapping cards, getting new ideas at leadership and convention and mostly the new friendships across Canada and the USA.  I had never traveled alone before.  It was at one of the convention that I had set up one of my goals to win an incentive trip, I earn the southern caribbean cruise, the Alaska cruise, the disney trip of a life time and attending Founders circle... I had never cruised before, it was amazing….  One of my achievements was to be #3 demonstrator in Canada,  never in my wildest dreams did I expect that.  I got free products, recognitions, bonus etc…The highlight of those 10 years is when I earned a workshop of a lifetime in my home with Shelli Gardner, ceo of Stampin up and her daughter Sara who has now taken Shelli's position.  We hosted a workshop in my home, had my downline meet them and have supper with them and in the evening hosted a large event for all demonstrators and customers.   I wanted all of them to benefit from meeting Shelli and Sara!

It has been an amazing journey!  (smile)  I have attended all levels as a demonstrator, from buying the kit for the discounts, to being a hobby demo to achieving trips, and other amazing perks.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you to my customers and the demonstrators on my team for those 10 years of ongoing support, regardless of the level that I attained! xo

The clock is ticking, you have until tomorrow to get 2 additional, free stamps sets with your starter kit, Click HERE for details.

 

 

This card was made with the new 2016-2018 incolor Peekaboo Peach, cardstock code #141417 and ink #141398, as well as pear pizzazz cardstock #131201 and ink #131180.  So saffron ink was also used #105118. Whisper white cardstock #100730.  The stamp set is a new stamp set called Penned & Painted, it's a two step set.  Order with code #141938.  Suggested clear blocks to mount stamps are A,B,C,G.

The greeting is from the stamp set Thoughtful Banners #141614  53 words/greeting!!! how useful is that ? Celebrate was punched with the duet banner punch #141483.   The best part about these two items is that you can buy them as a bundle and save 10%, item code #142330.

Thank you Dale!  I love my card. If you love it too and want the products to make it, don't hesitate to contact me or place your order in my online store. Giving this card, might put a smile on someone's specials close to you.

Pineapple love…

Here is one more sample from the pop of paradise stamp set. (#141581 in clear or #141578 in wood)  In this card I used the pineapple from the stamp set. It's adorable.  Pineapples are really in right now.  When shopping in stores, they are everywhere, on clothes, glasses, pens and papers…. I stamped one pineapple with melon mambo ink (#126948) and cut it out, with my scissor snips.  These scissors are the bomb!(#103579) They are perfect for precision cutting…  I added dimensionals (#104430)  and elevated the image to create dept.  The other two pineapples were stamped with pink pirouette ink. (#126956)     The pink polka dot paper and the black & white zigzags are from the pop of pink specialty designer series paper. (#141648).  Once again, I love layering the same tone of cardstock on top of each other to create dept in my card.  I used whisper white cardstock. (#100730) This card was simple to do and the designer paper was a beauty just on it's own.  The card coordinates perfectly with the one made in my last post. They are the perfect set to give away.

 

My Second card, includes the large Pineapple stamp (#141746 in clear) suggested clear block to use would be F  (#118483) or if you prefer the wood pineapple stamp set (#141743)  Designer paper are the same as listed above and ink as well. For this stamped image, i wanted to create a ombre look.  Therefore I stamped the pineapple in pink pirouette first, then used a sponge dauber (#133773) and stamped melon mambo ink directly on the rubber.  And voila!!!  I also added melon mambo thick baker's twine as embellishment. (#141689)  To adhere the bow, the best product to use is mini glue dots. (#103683)  The greetings on both cards were stamped with the basic black archival stamp pad (#140931)

I hope these cards have brought a little summer stamping inspiration.  Now has never been a better time to order summer inspirational stamp sets.  Don't hesitate to contact me or place your order in my online store

If you love all of stampin up products now is the perfect time to get the starter kit and get your products at a discount price.  There is a crazy deal going on.  If you purchase the kit before June 30th you get 2 additional stamp sets of your choice…Amazing!!!! Check it out HERE.

have a great week, hugs xo

Pop of paradise and pop of pink

I am digging the pop of paradise stamp set. (#141581 in clear or #141578 in wood) Here is another one of my samples.   I made swap cards and sent these cards out to a group. I stamped my background and love the crisp color of the black ink. From this picture you would think my leaves are from a designer paper but they aren't.  I stamped the black leaves with my new basic black archival stamp pad (#140931) and the pink leaves are melon mambo ink (#126948).    The new basic black archival ink rocks!  I've never seen black ink look so crisp!  The pink polka dot paper, the gold polka dots and the black & white horizontal stripes are from the pop of pink specialty designer series paper. (#141648).  I love layering the same tone of cardstock on top of each other to create dept in my card.  Today I used whisper white cardstock. (#100730)  I always keep a couple of packages of these because they coordinate with all the stampin up ink colors. 

Did you receive you new catalogue from me yet?  If you haven't send me an email and you can take advantage of my month special for my customers only…
