Paper Crafting Blog Hop Small Bloom Punch

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

I hope you are enjoying our Sale-A-Bration 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  Krissi Hannahs’ blog. She had a fabulous project!

I picked the Golden Honey Specialty designer series paper as my second Sale-A-Bration pick instead of getting the coordinating stamp set for the Small Bloom punch. So I needed to use a stamp set I already had on my shelf to create color in the bloom punched shapes.  The splotchy images are in the Painted Poppies stamp set.

The Trucks

12 19truck2-001

I meant to post these trucks earlier this week. Sugar Cookie Social guests made them for what I intended to be a party favor to hold the snack sack and chocolate in the truck bed. I bought the snacks before I made a sample of the trucks as you can see the snacks are too large for the truck bed. A chocolate kiss would fit though.

I hope you are enjoying our gift packaging 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 Annette’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

My project looks likes a landscape card. Flip it open to reveal a pocket for a gift card, note or cash works too.

Supplies used…visualize the scallop circle replacing the blueberry bushel circle in the design. I mailed all of the styles away using the scallop circle before realizing I did not take a photo of it.

I’m back at the One of a Kind Stamp and Scrap Expo!

Screen Shot 2018-10-10 at 8.32.22 AM

I am back as the Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator at the One of a Kind Rubber Stamp and Scrapbook Expo in Madison during the weekend of November 16-18, 2018. I have been participating in this show in various ways ever since it started. Way back when before I became a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, my family would visit from out of town and we would attend the show together.

This year, I have a table on the show floor so visit me there! I also have 3 classes, the Daisy Jar on Friday, the Wood Crate Projects on Saturday and my staple, Card Buffet on Sunday. Please consider attending a class. As a bonus, you will get to rest your legs for an hour during class 🙂

In addition, I’ll be a demonstrator during the Saturday night Create n Keep. This event is 4 hours of stamping fun!

Here is a link to the expo’s website: click here to zoom to the OOAK website.

See you there!

Ink and Share Blog Hop Anything But A Card

28059369_10155813494401140_2143749391452299936_n

Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop. This month, we are featuring projects that are anything but a card designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Sandrine Jse’s blog and her fabulous project.

My hop design below features designer series paper (dsp) Toil and Trouble with bewitchingly fun prints. I fussy cut the witches and little kitties from the same piece of dsp. Our dsp is double sided which makes it hard sometimes to pick which pattern to show.  I opted to show both sides with the spooky ghost print by folding over about 1/2 inch to reveal the purpley striped side.

Lots of mini night scene party favors ready for Fall Fling, an all demonstrator meeting that I coordinate.8 18partyfavor4-001

Spider Trinkets and little kitties add some fun. Someone said her crate shifted during Fall Fling and it gave her a fright because she saw the legs move. Spiders are tricky that way!
