Kylie's International Highlights Winners Hop September 2018

Thank you for joining us for our very exciting blog hop! Every month I hold an International Blog Highlight hosted on my blog. It is LOTS of fun and anyone is welcome to join in as long as you use all current Stampin' Up!® product. The best part - you get to vote for your top favourites. If you want to be part of my International Highlights or find out more click HERE.

Today I am hoping along with the winners of my highlights from early this month in October. Our theme this month is Sorry. You may be starting here or have come from the person before me in the hop - that is fine! You can still hop all the way around and not miss one. The list is at the end of this post.

Sorry can be used in so many different ways - I am sorry in the sense of apologising. I am sorry - for your loss or because of a sickness you have suffered. Or even if there has been some bad news. 

I noticed a good friend of mine just didn't seem herself the other day. I gave her a BIG HUG and said "love you" She broke down into tears and said that she is going through a tough time. I feel so bad for her. I messaged her today to check up and see how she was going. I thought it would also be nice to follow up with a card for her too - to let her know that I am thinking of her during her tough time dealing with some discouragement.

I love that I was able to use the left over pieces of the stunning Petal Promenade paper so that NOT ONE bit was wasted. I love when you can use every bit of a paper that you love. If you LOVE your paper you will CHOP your paper! #loveitchopit. Don't let it stay in your shelves collecting dust. Use it and share love with others. I'll even let you buy another pack if you use it up. :)

The sentiment is from the fantastic set called Rooted in Nature. I love the sentiments in that set. I then used the stitched shapes framelits to cut out the sentiment. Those stitched shapes framelits are a must have for your collection! I love them for my sentiments.

Thank you so much for coming by today and checking out our hop. We would LOVE you to take part in my International Highlights in the future. Join our Facebook Planning group to find out more about how you take part and play along! CLICK HERE.

#loveitchopit Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper

Bruno and I have been CRAZY busy getting ready to leave for Orlando in less than a week. We have been making swaps, team gifts, getting presents and lots of exciting projects. It has been busy but fantastic.

Today I have some simple #loveitchopit cards to show you! I used the stunning Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper and the sentiment is from the Dandelion Wishes Stamp set. 

I love how easy it was to quickly put this card together and added the stunning linen thread as a simple embellishment.

I have made the cards for Random Acts of Kindness cards and also for customers that place orders with me this week. It is so awesome to have cards ready and on hand to send a thank you or thinking of you.

I was able to make these cards up fast because of the simple design.

Thanks for coming by today to see my #loveitchopit cards! Isn't that Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper just beautiful? If you live in Australia you can purchase this paper and make your own stack of stunning cards quickly and at a minimal cost too.

Sneak Peek | Congratulations | Using the Snowflake Showcase Suite

Hi There and thanks so much for joining me.

Today I wanted to share a sneak-peek project using some brand new, limited time only products. The stamp set I used is called Happiness Surrounds and the (BEAUTIFUL) thinlit set is called Snowfall. 

Here is the project I created;

I paired it with some Annual Catalogue products too. How did I make it? Here are some directions for you (in tutorial mode);
  1. Start with a landscape card base in Mossy Meadow.
  2. Using the appropriate sheet of DSP from the Petal Promenade Set, cut the strip of flowers as shown in the example. The width of the floral strip is 4cm (approx 1.5") and the length is the same as the width of the card. Stick to card base.
  3. Using a piece of Whisper White card stock, stamp the main image using Mossy Meadow ink. Cut out using the largest circle from the Layering Circles framelit kit.  Mount onto card using dimensionals.
  4. Using a piece of Whisper White card stock, stamp the flower using Fresh Fig ink. Cut out using coordinating framelit from the Snowfall Framelit kit. Mount onto card using dimensionals.
  5. This is MY FAVORUITE layer! Using a piece of Blushing Bride, cut out the beautiful, intricate and delicate flower. Mount onto card using dimensionals.
  6. Using a piece of Whisper White card stock, stamp the small flower using Smoky Slate ink. Cut out using coordinating framelit. Mount onto card using dimensionals.
  7. Using a piece of Highland Heather, cut out the small flower (or snowflake shape). Mount onto card using dimensionals.
  8. Mount a metal rimmed pearl into middle of flower.
  9. Cut a piece of Whisper White 9x1.5cm and stamp the sentiment onto the strip of card stock. Mount onto card using dimensionals.

And, that's it! What do you think? Want to buy any of the products?
