Paper Crafting Blog Hop Playing with Patterns

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you showcasing our fabulous product Suites. You may have arrived from Annette McMillan’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I opted to use Playing with Patterns Suite which is showcased on pages 100-102 of the annual catalog.

This Suite features the Playful Alphabets Dies and Pattern Play photopolymer stamp set. The coordinating patterned paper package, Playing with Patterns, has modern designs in pops of purple posy, night of navy, coastal cabana and calypso coral shades. I opted for the dramatic combination of night of navy against purple posy.

Since the stamps are photopolymer, they can be coaxed into a gentle curve as stamped with the bottom sentiment.

Thanks for hopping with us each month. Now click on the next image to zoom to Tracy Held’s blog in Australia and see what fun project she designed.

Twas the Night Before Stamp Saturday, oops, it’s here!

I composed this short poem as my day was wrapping up yesterday and shared it in the One of a Kind Facebook group. Since it was the last thing I did, I forgot I could share it on my blog too:)

“Twas the Night Before Stamp Saturday,” an original poem composed by Shirley Merker, Super Awesome Stamper

Twas the night before Stamp Saturday, and all through the house,

the dust bunnies were not scared, in fact, they were going to a Ball.

A Ball you say? An in-person event? No, not quite.

This Ball requires a clear stamp space with ink pads, markers and stamps lined up.

Ready for the next demonstration? You got that right!

Snacks on the side, with the dust bunnies keeping company way in the back.

We are ready for Stamp Saturday, now I bid you a Good Night!

Stamp Saturday is here will my presentation at 2pm central time in the One of a Kind Virtual Event Facebook group. Join the group to see my video and the scrappy strip technique demonstrated. I’ll share assembly tips on the other designs too as time allows. I’ll be sharing in depth how to videos in the coming days on my business Facebook page as well. Search for Super Awesome Stamper Shirley Merker and you have found me.
