Kellie Stamps January 2014 Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Kellie Stamps 1 January 2014 Blog Hop!!

This month there are 5 clear stamp sets, 6 wood mount stamps, wooden flair and metal flair being released at Kellie Stamps!! The wood and metal flair are so awesome - they coordinate with some of the stamps and are my favourite embellishments to use on SMASH* and scrapbook pages.

This hop showcases this new range of products - it is full of inspiration and there are prizes to be won ... yay!!! So hop along with us and enjoy the ride!

If you have come from the amazingly talented 
Jodie then you are right on track. If not you should go to the very start with Kellie.

Today I've got a few SMASH* pages to show you. The first is from my Holiday SMASH* folio where I'm documenting Christmas 2013. To tell the truth I'm way behind in this documentation process and this page is for November when our two Elf on a Shelf's arrived.
On these pages I've used a heap of products from Kellie Stamps : the "You are absolutely amazing" wood mount stamp from the new release; two wooden flair (you are amazing and the triangles); as well as "Elf on the shelf 2013", "the elf", and "Cheeky" from the Elf mini 2013 stamp set.
One of the things I love about the wood mount stamps is that they are always ready to go for those phrases or quotes that you use all the time. 
I'm a lover of all wood veneer embellishments and I love that these coordinate with the stamp sets!
I've also used a heap of die cuts from Pink Paislee Snow Villiage collection; Studio Calico tree, star and heart wood veneer; Prima house and Joy wood veneer; APOCD elf flair; SMASH* holiday roller date stamp; and paper doilies, twine, chevron bag, button, enamel dots and tag from my stash.

My next page is from my 365 SMASH* folio that I'm using to document 2013. I do about 6 pages per month. I'm still back at September but I will catch up, I will, I will!!
On these 2 pages I've used more of the new release stamps from Kellie Stamps: "Happy Camper", "having so much fun" and the row of triangles from the Summer 2014 stamp set; "Keen as mustard" and "cool bananas" from the Photo bomb set; "you little rippa" and "you little bewdy" from the Australia day 2014 stamp set.
I've used some papers, kraft bag/tag and wooden moustache's from a Movember Tart kit from Lime Tart - raising money to support mens health!
I've also used Studio Calico boat, arrow and chevron wood veneer; Prima leaf wood veneer; and paper doilies, twine, chevron bag, flair, enamel dots and tag from my stash.
My SMASH* books always get very thick and can be difficult to photograph so I took this photo to show how I lift up one side of my book!
Next on the hop is the talented Sue so hop on over for more fabulous inspiration! 

It wouldn't be a blog hop without a giveaway would it!

Great layouts. I love the wood pieces also. I use a lot of them in my greeting cards. I know you'll catch up with your scrapping. It takes determination to keep up-to-date (which I don't have a lot of). Happy New Year.

Awesome pages Karyn. Love all the wooden embellishments. Thanks for pointing me to Blue Bazzar. Unfortunately I visited them too late and could not get a delivery before Christmas. But I will definitely revisit them to make a purchase soon as they do have the best prices.
