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.

PPP Blog Hop Something for Everything

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

My first project pairs Paper Pumpkin stamps with supplies already on my shelf. Our Notecards and Envelopes are a great basic supply which are ready to use since they are cut and scored.

Then I paired the just because stamp with snowflakes and stamen stamps from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in the annual catalog.

Last, I cut one of the card bases included in the kit and attached the pieces to a Garden Green card base. It’s an unusual design but appropriate for the “hey friend, love you lots” sentiment included on the card.

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.

Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop Snowman Season

Welcome to the Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop. We are Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators showcasing our fabulous products on scrapbook pages. Christmas is our theme this month. Sue asked us to make our layouts sparkle! 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!

The Feels Like Frost designer series paper is silvery on one side. It is a great choice for snow themed photo mats. I like to use lots of patterned papers on my scrapbook layouts for quick assembly and to enjoy the papers long after the stash is used on cards.

Use the Snowman Builder punch to punch out the Let It Snow sentiment. A few days after I took the photo, I added Highland Heather snowflakes at the top of the layout and around the edges of the photo mats.

Here are the patterns in the Feels Like Frost 6×6 inch paper pack. Pretty silver on one side and real snow scenes on the other.
