Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop Summer Themes


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

I used the triple banner punch to make the banner points. It’s easy with the punch to make even tips! Lots of space for photos and journaling on these pages. I see ancestral black and white photos on this page. Will be having a session of memory keeping these photos with my aunt (the keeper of the photos) and my sister (the researcher of the details) in November. Will post later if both make it to the pages!

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop The Gift of Fall


Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! We are fans of this monthly crafting kit. Follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as designed, or use the supplies as a starting point to let your creativity run wild.

On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas on how to use the August Paper Pumpkin kit, The Gift of Fall, in alternate projects. You may have arrived from Debbi Green’s blog. She had a great project!

I decided to use a Bird Ballad laser cut card for the base. Added a 4×5.5 inch piece of the Come to Gather designer series paper behind the laser cut top so the intricate designs are spotlighted.

Glue dots are hidden behind the gold sequins and are used to attach the designer series paper to the laser cut front. All supplies came from the Paper Pumpkin kit except for the laser cut card and designer series paper.

I assembled the bags replicating the included, in-color, sample design. The bags are roomy and sturdy. An afternoon tea could be packed inside and gifted to family or friends.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop Happy Birthday


I hope you are enjoying our Happy Birthday themed Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Sandra Robert’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I decided to showcase the Dino Days suite. Pink is my least favorite color but flirty flamingo slips under the door as a super awesome color. Pair it with Pool Party ink and cardstock accents to make the flirty flamingo color pop.

Our glitter enamel dots add some sparkle without adding much thickness. This card can still be mailed with one USA Forever stamps. The Gathered Ribbon in Rococo Rose adds some texture, dino style.
