Memorable Moments by Sylwia Schreck

Back when I was as young as my daughter in this photo, cameras looked way different. Who remembers the black rolls of film you had to insert into the camera first? More often than not, you wouldn’t even know how the images would come out as you had to develop the film first. Those that turned out well ended up in a photo album.
Today, taking pictures is completely different. Any smartphone can capture the marvelous moments in life as high quality images. We don’t print as many photos as we used to. Most of them just sit on our devices. Well, I decided to preserve my most beautiful moments in a different way—by creating a layout.
A small moment of happiness, the smile of a child, is more than worth being documented and preserved in this special way. They are growing up so fast and every moment we can capture is precious.
For the base of my layout, I used Whisper White 12″ x 12″ Cardstock (item 124302). To add some color, I used two sheets of Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper (item 146338): one to create the outer frame and the other one to cut out a heart shape that I layered with a smaller heart that was fussy cut as well. Then I used a sewing machine to sew on all of my four paper layers.
Next, I decorated the heart frame with various flowery elements (items 145655, 145617, 142749, 143659) as well as with some stamped images from the A Good Day Stamp Set (item 145586) that my daughter loves so much—including the bunny, the super-cute deer, the little bird, and the ice cream, of course! The sentiment “Du bist unvergleichlich” (English version: “You are wonderful”) is from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set (item 146482). I embossed it using Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (item 109129) on translucent Vellum 8-1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock (item 101856).
I hope you like my little memorable moment. Keep on creating!

After seeing so many wonderful cards made with this set, I just had to add the Lift Me Up Stamp Set to my stash last year. Thankfully it’s in the new catalog as time flies when you um and ah!😂

This stamp set can be found on page 34 of the Annual Catalog. It contains 16 fabulously assorted stamps that will cover a variety of occasions with matching thinlets on page 221.

And doesn’t if team beautifully with the Prussian Blue Brusho?

Think Make-Up Compact…

This is the best thing to remember when it comes to the wonderful new Ink Pads that Stampin’ Up! have introduced with the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.

Admittedly it’s a tad confusing swapping between the old and new Ink Pads, opening and closing them, but once you see how beautifully these Ink Pads stack I’m sure all will be quickly forgiven!

Still having Dragonfly Dreams!

Posted on

Look what’s still available in the new catalog, the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set, woot woot. Given how little I’ve used it though, I’m pretending it’s a brand new set!

Isn’t this stamp set fabulous? It has 10 assorted photopolymer stamps and can be found on page 138 of the Annual Catalog with the matching thinlets on page 218.

And isn’t wonderful how Coastal Cabana is back! Coastal Cabana can now be found in the Brights Collection on page 185 of the new catalog.
