Paper Crafting Blog Hop Happy Birthday

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

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 Debbie McNeill’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I should start keeping track of the number of times I use the Jar of Flowers stamp set and Jar Punch. I am sure it will be the most used set for me. The new Old World Paper embossing folder will need to be misplaced in my stamp room too so I don’t use it on every card;)

Supplies used…I love my Stampin’ Write Markers for quick, saturated coloring. I also used the Many Mates stamp set for the sentiments.

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.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop Thinking of You

I hope you are enjoying our Thinking of You Guys 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 McMillan’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I decided to stamp a birthday card since birthdays are a Thinking of You occasion. It’s a quick and easy card with just stamps, paper and inks.

I have pulled all my soon to be retiring stamp sets and placed them in a pile. It’s 24 sets which I will try to showcase on my blog one last time before they are gone for good! I used the sets in photo to create this card along with the Tailored Tags punch and Country Club designer series paper.

Welcome to the Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop featuring Spring and New Beginnings. We are Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators showcasing our fabulous products on scrapbook pages. If you are on the hop trail, you may have arrived from Cindy Mitchell-Clark’s blog. She had a great layout!

I decided to create a buzzing bees theme around our Pressed Petals designer series paper, Honey Bee stamp set and Detailed Bees dies.

I hope you are enjoying our Thinking of You Girls 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 Hannah’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

Under My Umbrella was calling me. I love stamp sets with coordinating punches because punches are so easy to use. I paired them with the Stitched Shapes framelits, pacific point ink, Noble Peacock Rhinestones, Basic Rhinestones Jewels, white Flax ribbon, blushing bride and mint macoron cardstock. The patterned paper is from the Follow Your Art package. I can totally see making bats from the larger umbrella shapes on the right. Can you?

The supplies used plus one white pompom to stand in a for golf ball from the Assorted Pompoms pack and patterned paper from the Country Club package…paper snip blades were run along the garden green mat to give extra interest. I got a little crazy with the number of Stampin’ Write markers I used. I got ’em, may as well use ’em. I love how saturated the colors are when using these markers.
