Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop featuring projects made with Stampin’ Up! products designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators. This hop features a sneak peek at the new 2018-2019 annual catalog. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Kirsten’s blog and her fabulous project. My hop design is below.

I decided to pair 3 new products to decorate the returning silver gable boxes. These boxes arrived already cut and scored for easy popping up and decorating. I decorated both sides of the box as shown below.

The new products are the Springtime Impressions Thinlets, Garden Impressions designer series paper and polka dot tulle ribbon. The ribbon was wrapped around the box to make a belly band. The ribbon dots are slightly raised and soft feeling. My favorite new product so far!

I wanted the butterfly to flutter so decided to trace around the thinlet with a pencil on whisper white cardstock and used paper snips to cut it out. The butterfly thinlet was cut out fully on the Garden Impression dsp and adhered to the whisper white cut out with a few glue dots down the center of the butterfly so the wings are free to flutter.

I also traced around the “for you” sentiment from the Wood Words stamp set using the flower thinlet from the Springtime Impressions Thinlet set. The “for you” was attached to the daffodil delight gift note that can be tucked inside the box for a complete gift package.

Coffee Break Blog Hop

I hope you are enjoying our Coffee Break Blog Hop along with a cup of coffee or tea. I’m hopping with fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from all over the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada. You may have arrived from Sandra Robert’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

Today’s hop features the Coffee Break designer series paper (dsp) with coordinating Coffee Cafe stamp set and Coffee Cup framelits. With 12 patterns to select from on 6 double sided sheets, our blog hop projects may or may not include coffee themes. The opposite sides of the dsp usually feature a complimentary pattern like strips, circles or asymmetrical prints that may be used instead of the coffee patterns.

I decided to create a dark chocolate espresso bean treat sack for my project. Our 2×8 inch cellophane bags holds about a serving of beans after I cut the bag to 5 inches. But a serving for me is 3 beans. I will probably be wide awake tonight since I sampled while I was designing:)

The bag topper is 2×4 inches of early espresso cardstock that was embossed using the softly falling embossing folder and folded to make a 2×2 inch topper. The next layer is 4×1 1/2 inches from the Coffee Break designer series paper package. A whisper white 1 1/4 inch circle creates a mat for the mini coffee cup that was “embossed” using the sleeve framelit from the Coffee Cups framelit set.

The Coffee Break dsp was snipped as shown to create the flag.

Most of the supplies used to create the treat bag topper. I see I did not include the Softly Falling embossing folder and 1 1/4 inch circle punch.

When demonstrators gather, we swap! I’ll be sharing swaps I received at the Madison Onstage November 2016 event over the next few weeks. You can order all supplies through my online store here. Let me know if you need help identifying products.

We start with fallish themes with a design from Debra Geier. Interesting that I picked her swap to post first since she organized the swap. Thanks Debra for organizing!
