Hello Doily and Framelits Labels Collection dies card by Stampin Up and me

Hi Dear Stampers.

For those of you new to my site, Welcome, My name is Pauline Kolochuk and I am a Stampin' Up Independent Demonstrator in the Calgary, Alberta, Canada  area, but I sell these beautiful products to people from all over Canada through my Online SU store.!

Here is one of the cards that I had created for yesterdays workshop. There is lots of Sale-A-Bration going on in there :)



Before I show you a bit on what I did yesterday at my workshop, I would first like to show you were I found my inspiration for my card. I was kinda late with my prepping for this workshop, so I was so glad I found this beautiful layout. It is so easy to work with. I love it! The sweet Jaydee from the Paper Players gave us one beautiful Layout Challenge #134.  I turned their sketch a bit to the left and look what showed up :)

My card :)


Yesterday in the afternoon my dear friend Shelley hosted a Stampin Up workshop with me in her home. I so love this woman's passion and joy for everything paper crafting. She really has a beautiful heart and she is so creative and talented.  I am also so thankful for her, because she was a huge help as well.

Thanks dear Shelley for your generousity in so many ways! & I was so impressed that at the end of the workshop you still had managed to create about 4 beautiful projects!

The great thing is, that she lives in the same neighbourhood as me. She had invited all these sweet ladies that send their children to the same school as me and my hubby do. Now, what a treat it was to be able to spend some crafting time with all these ladies. And you know how it goes when you pick up your kids from school. It is busy, you have places to go after you pick them up and there are just children everywhere running around.. So it was real fun to hang out with all of them and chat and create.


And as you can see, these sweet ladies rocked this workshop. While creating and having fun, they were thinking outside of the box, they came up with new ideas, new colour combinations, I loved it.  I think they all learned some new techniques as well, which is always such a great bonus, right? 

Oh, I wish I had taken some more pictures to show you. The room was booming with beauties of cards and gift card holders.. Some woman had already left before I could take a picture of what they had created and some cards I thought I had taken a picture of, but then I didn't.. or the photo that I had taken was all fuzzy.. (sigh) Anyhoo.. I hope these photo's give you a little impression of our afternoon. It was good! 

I think that we have used the Big Shot for about every card this afternoon. (smile) We embossed, we were die cutting. We used the Framelits - Labels Collection Dies from Stampin Up. (#125598 - $32.95)

The innovative, thin, wafer-like design of these dies lets you see where you’re placing the design before you cut! Layer dies inside each other to cut frames for stamp images. Cut single labels for accents or layering. Use with single sheets of card stock or Designer Series Paper. Labels Collection coordinates with our Apothecary Art Stamp Set. Largest label is approximately 5-7/16" wide. Includes 6 dies in a sturdy envelope for easy storage in our Big Shot Die Storage

Here is another gorgeous card. Don't you love the pop of colour and the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#129378 - $9.95) that she used to bring that extra layer of texture to her card?

Please CLICK HERE if you would like to Embossing folder to your shopping card.

Do you see the Hello Doily (#122847 - $16.95 clear mount stamp) in the background..  Doesn't it gives each card such a sweet and vintage look? Please CLICK HERE if you would like to purchase this stamp set.

Please remember, that there is one for sale with a wooden block and one for the Clear Mount block.

I also love how the Old Olive card stock of Stampin Up. It just never disappoints. It is such a rich colour. And so fun to work with.  

Stampin' Up!'s high-quality card stock is dyed with pure color all the way through, so you'll never get a white core! Available as individual color packages, you'll love having plenty of your favorite colors on hand!

Well.. I guess that's it for today.

I hope you have some time in your day to create.

Inky hugs, Pauline



  1. Pauline! What a lovely collection of creativity! I adore all your workshop cards and I'm sure all the ladies did too. I really love the one you've submitted to our sketch challenge--such a great use of the negative space and the monogram is fabulous! So glad you joined us at The Paper Players this week!

  2. Wow! I'm really impressed by your card collection, Pauline! The card you created for the sketch challenge is especially awesome. Love the window and the ribbon layer, not to mention the embossing! Thanks for playing along this week with The Paper Players!


Thanks so much for leaving your comment. Enjoy the rest of your day! Take care, Pauline
