Kelly’s Stamping Friends Blog Hop

Woohoo! Welcome to the lovely Kelly Kent’s celebrating 5 years blog hop! You may have hopped across from the talented Kathryn Mangelsdorf’s blog. Welcome to my blog!

I am so excited to be a part of this! Congratulations Kelly on your 5 years with Stampin’ Up!

Kelly chose the theme “happy” for this blog hop. Everyone needs some happy in their life, life is better when you’re happy!

When I think of happy, I think of a party! And balloons, presents, cake and lots of happy people!

I have created my first ever z fold box card with the very exciting and very bright “Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper”. What is not the love about this paper? Its fun, its bright and it’s kind of vintage but it just screams happy to me. Does this card make you feel happy, like I do, just looking at it?

I have to think that one of the greatest things about this designer series paper (DSP) is that some of the characters have a matching die that cuts them out! Let your Bigshot do the hard work. How awesome is that? I want everyone to tell me that they love this!

How cute is this card when it is closed! I think it just creates so much excitement and you just want to open it….

The happy birthday sentiment was from the Birthday Delivery Stamp set. I used white embossing powder to make this stand out against the real red cardstock.

That cute little balloon honeycomb embellishment! I just love it!

I want to go to the party they are all going too! Don’t you?

No party is complete without some little cute thank you notes. So I have made just the thing in a cute little wooden crate using the wood crate framelit with the wood textures DSP.

These items are all available for purchase from 1 June.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. Well done Kelly celebrating 5 years!

Happy Blog Hopping….

  1. So many lovely details, and bright and fresh too. You’ve done a great job for your first folding box card- great use of all the little party animals!


  2. Gorgeous projects – you are amazing! To think that you are one of the newer additions to my stamping world, but it just goes to show, it’s not the one you’ve known the longest, but the ones who leave the biggest imprint! I’m so grateful that Stampin’ Up! had us cross paths. In 5 years time, we can celebrate together – my 10th and your 5th!!! Kelly x PS, do you think Nanna Papercraft would notice if the Wood Crate die never lived at her house?


    1. Thank you so much Kelly for all your help and inspiration! I feel like I have learnt so much from you in such a short time. I most definitely want to be celebrating with you by your side in 5 years time!
      So happy that I found you. You are the best upline I could of hoped for.
      PS. I am pretty sure Nanna Papercraft will notice if the Wood Crate never returned…she might need to invest in better locks! Haha!
