Crop, Swap and Talk

Shoebox Swap-001Is your new stack of Stampin’ Up! products calling you to create something fabulous and fun. How about sharing one of your creations at a Hand Stamped Greeting Card Shoebox Swap?

You cut the supplies for your greeting card enough times for everyone else to make it. Pack those supplies along with stamps, inks and any hardware needed for card completion into a shoebox sized container. Everyone else does the same thing as well.

Then, during the Shoebox Swap, go around to the stations and create each others’ fabulous projects. Everyone brings their own adhesives. You go home with lots of designs and good ideas to use current products.

Sound like a fun evening? Then join us on Monday, April 20th, 6-8pm. I’ll be in the room by 4pm so you are welcome to bring your dinner and use the time from 4-6pm as you wish for other cropping projects.

Please RSVP by April 5th by clicking the contact button. I’ll send you a confirmation email with more details and an invitation to join the Stampin Shoebox Swap Facebook group.

I’ll relay the final participant count on April 6th via the Facebook group. Please ask to join this group since this where the event planning with take place.

Please note that all supplies need to be 100% Stampin’ Up! products found in the 2019-2020 annual catalog or Spring 2020 catalog. No Exceptions! Please do not use Sale-A-Bration items or retired Stampin’ Up! products.

We can talk business while we work our way through making the projects. I’ll share a few items at the end of the event as well.

PPP Blog Hop Lovely Day

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! We will be sharing lots of ideas for using the February Paper Pumpkin kit, Lovely Day, in alternate projects. You may have arrived from Deb Naylor’s blog. She had a great project!

I tend to design alternate projects using just the stamps from the kit while plucking supplies from my stash. Crumb cake cardstock is a staple and coordinates beautifully with a photographic flower image from the Pressed Petals designer series paper package.

Use a few markers and the 2 1/4 inch circle punch to create a quick and easy birthday card.

Welcome to the Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop. We are Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators showcasing our fabulous products on scrapbook pages. Anything in the current annual or holiday catalogs can be used to create our layouts. If you are on the hop trail, you may have arrived from Cindy’s blog. She had a great layout!

I decided to create a friend layout since the Heartfelt stamp set contains friend sentiments.

Run an 8.5×11 inch piece of flirty flamingo through the embossing folder on each side. Then cover up the center seam with the banner.
