Using 6" x 4" (10.2cm x 15.2cm) Abstract Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack

Hi everyone, I have had a little break from posting over the Christmas break and I am now ready for the New Year.  I had a great Christmas spending time with my 3 brothers and their families.

I have still been creating over this time, working out the best way of using the 6" x 4" (10.2cm x 15.2cm) Abstract Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack so you do not have any or very little scraps.

I will be sharing the cutting layouts and designs over the next week or so, hope you enjoy the projects that I have made using some old and some new products.

This is my first creation using Sweet Ice Cream stamp set and the coordinating Ice Cream Cone punch.  I love the Gold, Blushing Bride and Just Jade colouring in this piece of Abstract Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I turned the paper over to get the contrast for the long centre strip.  

I used 2 sheets of this paper which will make 3 cards.  If you use the 4 sheets in the paper pack then you will make 6 cards.

Cut Diagram 1 at 3 strips 1" x 4" then cut these into 1" x 2" pieces and 2 pieces 3" x 2" - this is first sheet of patterned paper.


Cut Diagram 2 into 4 pieces 3" x 2" - this is the second sheet of patterned paper.


The mats for the 3" x 2" pieces are cut at 3 1/8" x 2 1/8" and the long strip is cut at 1 1/8" x 5 3/8".

The 1" x 2" pieces of patterned paper are adhered to each end of the 1 1/8" x 5 3/8" mat, leaving a small border.  The gap in the middle is covered by the sentiment panel.

Hope you enjoyed this project.

Christmas to Remember

Hi everyone, sharing some last minute Christmas Cards I made using the Christmas to Remember stamp set, Christmas Season stamp set and the Seasonal Label Dies.


I made two cards using the same elements and Designer Series Paper, just changing up the sketch.


The Designer Series Paper is from the Painted Christmas 12" x 12" paper pack from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalogue and the In Good Taste 12" x 12"  paper pack from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue.

The card base is Cherry Cobbler with the colours used to stamp the images being Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Garden Green, Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen and Cherry Cobbler.

I love the Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2" ribbon that is layered behind the images.  To finish the cards some Red Rhinestones were added.

Hope you enjoyed these two projects.

Ever Eden Christmas Bag

Hi everyone, sharing one of the projects the ladies made at today's class.  A little Christmas Bag made using the Ever Eden Designer Series Paper, Tidings & Trimmings Stamp Set, All Dressed Up Dies and the Christmas Trimmings Dies.


The bag base was cut from Evening Evergreen Cardstock.  This went perfectly with the Aero Bliss Chocolates that I was wanting to put in the bags and also coordinated with the Ever Eden Designer Series Paper.


The sentiment is from the Tidings and Trimmings Stamp Set, this was stamped on Basic White using Evening Evergreen ink and then punched out with the Double Oval Punch. The foliage pieces from the Christmas Trimmings Dies were cut from Gold Foil Sheet, Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen Cardstock.  The base Gold piece was cut using the All Dressed Up Dies. The bag was closed with a small Velcro Dot.

The ladies really enjoyed making this project today.  Hope you also enjoyed it.

Just Add Ink #582... Just Add Inspiration

Hi everyone, I am playing along with the Just Add Ink challenge this week, Just Add Inspiration.


The challenge is to create a project using the picture below as inspiration.


I used the Merriest Moment stamp set and the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder.  I was inspired by the colour scheme and the gingham elements in the picture.

For the base card I have used one of the Gingerbread & Peppermint Memories & More Cards & Envelopes.  The background piece of Designer Series Paper is from the Peaceful Place 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper pack.

Hope you enjoyed this project.

Thank you for visiting.
