Sneak peek in color #1 = Berry Burst

I'm so excited that June 1st is just around the corner.  I've been waiting for this date all month long, it's the launch of the new stampin up 2017-2018 catalogue.  As a demonstrator, we get to play with the pre order but that is not enough for me… hi hi hi… I have a huge list of products that I want so cannot stand the wait…. Today I wanted to introduce you to one of the new 2017-2019 in color, Berry burst.  I've used the coordinating dsp with it.  The new in colors are also available in markers.  I used the berry burst marker to color the image from the new stamp set crafting forever.  This stamp set is the dream stamp set for crafters and it's also available to you, my french customers.  It contains 9 rubber stamps and includes a couple of crafty greetings.

The greeting in this card comes from another new stamp set.  Here I used the french version, beaute de l'orient, It is also available in English, Eastern Beauty.  I love the circular greetings that are perfect to go around circle images.

Products used in this card are listed below.  I didn't want to use retired products therefore was limited in my choices until my big order arrives!  I cannot wait.  If you want to play with new products email me!  I'm having a launch kick off party on June 1st.

I hope you enjoyed one of the new in colors  and that you are excited to see my next in color card! Happy stamping!

Happy national scrapbooking day!

I'm a little early, but May is just around the corner!  May is national scrapbook month! This Saturday so happens that I'm hosting my spring fling scrapbooking day! Although, I wasn't planning on showing sneak peeks prior to the event, I have two new  openings… so if you want to attend let me know:) I love scrapbooking.  It's a great way to get together with friends and socialize while preserving memories.  I included in my guests goodie bag a journaling pen.  I think writing down the events of that special page is just so memorable for the person reading it. I used Stampin up! retired 12 x12 linen album.  I love to decorate my albums and always put a twist on things and add an extra technique.  You might want to check on the retired list and the clearance rack.  Stampin up always has great deals.  The clearance rack contains new items at a very good price.  See my link below.

My album contains products that are moving forward in the new 2017-2018 catalogue and some items are retiring.  The pop of pink specialty dsp is on the retiring list.  I loved the combination of black, white, gold and pink designs it contains. I'm sad to see that the so detailed thinlits dies are retiring as well.  I loved the detailed it brought to my cards and pages.  Here is one of the cards I made using these thinlits.  Click HERE. If you were to see my album up close, you would notice the glitter on my ferns from the butterfly basics stamp set. I used the wink of stella in clear for that  shine, glittery image. I love that stuff, wish it came in bigger containers!!!!

When I attended the on stage event in Amsterdam, I learned a new term = fussy cutting!!! So I detailed cut out my ferns since no thinlits exist for these.  I hope my guests will like fussy cutting 🙂

So if you want to participate this weekend or want the class to go, please email me.  I have two spots that opened up! You are welcome to forward my message to a friend:)

Details below:

If you are a scrapbook lover just like me, you don’t want to miss my spring fling Stamp-a-rama. We will be making a 12×12 album, special cover Kim style. This fun day includes an album, 12 pages and protectors, a large goodie bag with all your products and catered lunch/snacks.  Save the date:  April 29thfrom 9 to 4pm. Places are limited. I’ll be hosting in my home.  Total fee is $99.  If you want this class to go cost is $140 (includes shipping) for pick up $125.

I’m so excited, hope you can join me.  

A picture is worth a thousand words, but the memories are priceless….

If you can't make it this Saturday then check my next big event listed below! You don't want to miss a fun day of stamping with products from the new 2017-2018 annual catalogue!

Exciting news!

I've been missing posting on my blog.  But the truth is, I've been busy accomplishing an event on my bucket list.  I was in Europe visiting Switzerland and Amsterdam.  I attended a 3 day Stampin up! event in Amsterdam. Visiting the place my mother was born was a dream come true and finding out part of my heritage also.  Stampin up has brought on so many positives in my life since I joined 10 and half years ago.  The friendships will always remain number 1.  On this trip and event, I can confirm I have new friends from all over the world:)

Here are a couple of pics from my time visiting Amsterdam! 

For my card below, I used one of my favorite retiring colors, mint macaroon.  I've attached the list of retiring products.  Some have discounts up to 50% off.  The sale started on Monday, and already products are running out!!!  It saddens me that some of my favorite products are retiring.  But to console myself, I have the new 2017-2018 catalogue and it contains so many new and exciting products.  Plus the layout of the new catalogue is amazing.  Email me to reserve your copy!

The list of products used is noted below. One of the first techniques I learned when I started stamping is called sponging. The best color to sponge with is soft suede. 

Don't forget to view all the amazing products from the retiring list.  Order on my online store or email me your order.

I hope you enjoyed my mint macaron card and that you are inspired to use the retired products before they are gone for good! Happy stamping!

So succulent love

So we spring into April shortly. There are not too many days left before Sale-a-bration is over.  Did you get all the FREE exclusive products that you wanted? The good news is that the occasion's catalogue doesn't end until May 31st.  On Wednesday, I'll be showcasing in my studio new techniques with the so succulent bundle.  Here is a sneak peek.  Although the succulent garden dsp has many wonderful colors, I only highlighted a selected few to keep my cards monochromatic.
My 4 different designs might look similar but I've highlighted different techniques.
I also made a cute mini magazine holder to store the cards and envelops. It's a perfect hostess gift.
Kim's favorite product:
My favorite product used to make these cards is definitely the stitched shapes framelits that coordinate with the layering squares, circles and ovals framelits dies.
How to make the colored paste?
To view how I have created the mint macaroon paste, click HERE.

Overload bunny cuteness

 I had the pleasure to host my monthly team meeting last week.  We were chatting so much that I forgot to take pictures… I designed an easy make and take for them.  What I loved best is that everyone added their twist to their project.  Once again, I forgot to take pictures of their designs before they left. If you follow me on instagram (riverfrontstampin) you were able to see my project as I posted the love notes and matching box there.  If you didn’t see my pictures, here is a series of pictures.

I love the succulent garden designer series paper.  It is perfect for Easter and spring projects.  I’m a gingham girl.  There are two different gingham sheets in the designer series paper package, 2 sheets of each color. These two were my favorite.  Plus, there is a load of different designs in the kit.  The coordinating ribbon is gorgeous.

To make my bunnies, I used the basket builder and coordinating basket bunch.  The best part was the tail.  I used the pompom trim ribbon to make the fluffy ball.  The list of products is identified below. 

For a quick reference, I’ve added a list:

  • Basket builder framelits dies #143228
  • Basket bunch stamp set #143186
  • Succulent garden designer series paper #142778
  • Succulent Garden 3/8” ribbon combo Pack #142781
  • Whisper white mini pompom trim #141486
  • Sweet sugarplum ink pad #141395
  • Tip top taupe ink pad #138325
  • Whisper white card stock #100730
  • Linen Thread #104199
  • Mint Macaron 3/8” sheer linen ribbon #141656
  • Polka dot textured impressions embossing folder #133739
  • Scalloped tag topper punch  #133324
  • Pearl Basic Jewels #119247
  • Dimensionals #104430

The instructions to make the box are listed HERE.  The only difference with today’s box, I added a belly band with the succulent garden dsp.  My belly band measured 1” x 12’.  I wrapped it around the box.  It slides off easy if you add dimensionals to glue it down. To view measurements for the love notes and to make the cute tags on top, see instructions HERE.

Pour les clientes francophones, le jeu est disponible en français #143436 et pour le lot de panier de Pâques (jeu et poinçons framelits) #144732

Aside from prizes, recognition, we had yummy treats. Here's one of them! There's not a better feeling than a group of people getting together to stamp and have fun!

To all the demonstrators that have currently taken advantage of the starter kit and signed up on my team for March, I’m sending you this cute project in the mail!  Enjoy ladies!  If you haven’t taken the time to sign up for the starter kit, see details HERE.  You have until March 31st to sign up.  The starter kit is a great way to stock up on products. No shipping and pst tax only in the provinces applicable. You get $165 of products for $135 plus an additional two stamp sets for FREE.  Email me if you have any questions!

My next team meeting will be on April 19th.  We will have another cute project in the making! Join me!
