bloghopbannerapril2018-001

I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring Sale-a-bration 2019 products. 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 spotlight buzzing butterflies using the Botanical Butterfly Sale-a-bration 2019 designer series paper and coordinating Butterfly Duet punch. The “a little note” sentiment is part of the Butterfly Gala stamp set.

Mini Blog Hop

Today features a mini Blog Hop! Tracy and I are doing a test run of linking our posts. So this hop is just 2 stops. Quick and fun so you can spend a little time in your stamp room recreating our projects:)

My hand stamped greeting card features Blackberry Bliss cardstock and ink which is a rich, dark purple. Daffodil delight and whisper white cardstock add contrast to the blackberry bliss. Snippets of organdy ribbon from the Sale-a-bration combo pack provide a soft look reminiscent of luscious frosting.

These are all the supplies I used to create the card. I wanted to show that the Lemon Lime Twist patterned piece has a black and white butterfly print on the opposite side. These 2 prints are my least favorite in the Sale-a-bration Botanical Butterfly DSP package because they are monochromatic. That just means we need to add our own flair to the prints:) The “sprinkles” stamp was inked using blackberry bliss ink and added to the edges of the lemon lime twist paper for my flair.

Welcome to the Embossing themed Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop. This could be dry embossing, embossing powder or even embossing paste, it’s demonstrators’ choice! 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 Sharon Dalton’s blog. She had a great layout!

My project started with the skating snowpeeps from the Spirited Snowmen stamp set.

Glossy paper that was processed through the Big Shot with Swirls and Curls embossing folder creates photo mats on Balmy Blue cardstock. Add a flurry of glossy paper snowflakes created from the Winter Blizzard framelit throughout the layout.

Paper Crafting Packaging Blog Hop

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring gift packaging. 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 the United Kingdom and Sandra Robert’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

The leftover custom designer series paper I created for this blog post was still on my table when I started to gather supplies for my project. So I grabbed by scoring tool and an acetate box to quickly create a custom belly band. The whisper white cardstock measures 4.5×11 inches with scoring at 4 1/2, 5 1/8, 9 5/8 and 10 1/4 inches as marked on the photo below. Use a strip of tear and tape to secure the band after wrapping around the acetate box.

The paper and ribbon belly band are not secured to the acetate box so the box can be reused for a different occasion. Use our epoxy dew drops and clear faceted gems generously since this box is intended to be hand delivered. The white flax ribbon is a new spring catalog product.

Glossy paper snowflakes add just the right touch…

Holidays Paper Crafting Blog Hop

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring Christmas projects. 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 Ginger Rabesa’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

The Christmas Pines stamp set and coordinating Pretty Pines framelits have finally arrived in my house. I thought my sister Tricia purchased them when they were introduced with the bundle pricing. We would discuss getting the products several times this year until I finally wanted to use them. I asked if I could borrow them and she said she did not get them. So off I went to purchase them with my demonstrator discount. That really helps stretch the paper crafting dollars.

I am so happy with this card. It’s made festive with the pine cone and sprig embellishments cut using the Pretty Pines framelits. The Wood Crate framelits make cutting a wooden crate easy. The decorated crate is my favorite part of this greeting card.

Add a red rhinestone jewel to make it sparkle…Add a few if you would like. There are 220 jewels in a package.
