Alaska Achievers August Blog Hop – Making Christmas Bright meets Stitched Seasons Framelits

Making Christmas BrightAll is Bright Suite



Thank you for joining us for this month’s Alaska Achievers blog hop!

Those hopping today are Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world who have met the requirements, and earned the amazing Stampin’ Up! Incentive trip that only a limited number of demos (less than 1% of all demonstrators) reach the level required to earn the trip each year.

We hop together once a month to show you ideas and designs using current Stampin’ Up!® products.

This Month we are focussing on Items from the New Holiday Catalogue. One of the highlights of earning the Incentive Trip from a crafting and business perspective is that the Holiday Catalogue is launched on the Trip itself. Not only do we get to see the new catalogue and some of the products in it – we also get given our own copy and we receive new product as gifts through All Attendee Give-a-Ways, Prize Patrol, Pillow Gifts and daily Spin-the-Wheel prizes! Stampin’ Up! spoil the trip earners incredibly!

I was particularly pleased to be able to share this trip with my two sisters. We get to spend a day together every month Memory Keeping because of Stampin’ Up! and it was so special to be able to have them with me on the Alaskan Cruise. #3sistersgocruising


One of the Pillow Gifts we received Is a gorgeous bundle called “Making Christmas Bright” which is a combo of the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch and the Making Christmas Bright Stamp Set and part of a stunning suite – All is Bright. I think this is going to be a favourite!


For my project today I’m pairing the stamps with a sheet of paper from the coordinating Designer Series Papers (All is Bright) and also two sets of framelits that are currently available Delicate Lace Edgelits and Stitched Seasons Framelits. The Delicate Lace Edgelits are in the Annual Catalogue (available until at least 3rd June 2019) and the Stitched Seasons Framelits are a limited-time product (in the Colour Your Season Suite which is only available until 31st August while supplies last). There’s some more info about the Colour Your Season Suite further down in my post.

There is all sorts of metallic going on in this page – I’ve got Gold and Champagne Foil Sheets, Gold and Silver Embossing and Gold Glimmer Paper. With some vellum and bling thrown in for good measure!

The bauble patterned paper from the All is Bright Designer Series Paper is where it all started. The Delicate Lace Edgelits where perfect to cut the foil sheets and the vellum and also to use with the Big Shot Embossing Mats to add the texture to the background.

The “circle” stamp from Making Christmas Bright has made gorgeous baubles. I’ve decorated them with some of the other stamps from the set and added a topper using Champagne Foil Sheet punched with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch.

I absolutely love the Stitched Seasons Framelits and have used them in lots of cards – but also in lots of Memory Keeping pages – both 12×12 layouts and pocket pages. If you don’t have these yet – you better be quick. They’re only available until the end of August or while supplies last.

I’ve cut two of the smallest framelit – one in Golf Glimmer and one in Very Vanilla. The top Very Vanilla one has had the stitched edge trimmed off so that the Gold Glimmer mat is visible underneath.
