Pinwheel Tower Bonus Tutorial Coming Soon

I pick up my Pinwheel Tower card samples from my October Kit of the Month offering and keep spinning them. They are so fun! Never know what’s on the next panel, I have a short memory;)

Several of my global demonstrator friends have also recently made their own versions. It got me thinking that it would be nice to collate all the samples into one document. Eleven other demonstrators thought it would be a good idea too and signed up to contribute. I’ll be sharing the pdf file via email later this weekend with those that ordered my Pinwheel Tower kits as a bonus thank you for ordering kits from me.

Here is a sneak peek at my design using the Blackberry Beauty Suite. I’ll reveal the rest of the panels in the tutorial.

Sample photos are still being added to the document and are fabulous so far. It’s a colorful collection for sure! I can’t wait to share it with you!

I have 8 kits left before they are gone for good! Full details for the kit are in this blog post by clicking here. I will email you the pdf tutorial as soon as it’s ready to share.

Ghostly Halloween Kitty…Boo to You!

I decided to not invest in Halloween themed paper crafting options this year. Shocker, I know:0 We love Halloween (that’s me, my Mom and my sister Wendy). But I knew I would not have time to play with the items this year. So I instead looked around at what I had on hand to create a spooky card.

When I saw the Blackberry Beauty designer series paper in the catalog, I immediately thought this paper pack included 2 potential Halloween prints. Getting a package in my hand confirmed I have a good eye;) It was a fun challenge for me to use these prints and the Cat Punch to make a spooky Halloween black ghost cat.

I made 12 of these cards and have the twig looking paper left to make a few more. The Chalk Marker makes the spooky white eyes…

Here is a video showing how I created this hand stamped greeting card.

Global SU Share Fair Save the Date!

We are closing in on final presenter preparations for the November 5th and 6th Global SU Share Fair. Save the Date! I know I am using the Frosted Gingerbread stamp set and Banners Pick a Punch. Now to let the ideas swirl in my head while I design something fun to share with you!

Here is the Gingerbread and Peppermint product suite. It can be ordered as a suite or stamp set and die cut bundles (there are 2!). Order the suite or either of the bundles and I’ll email you a pdf tutorial using these products which is part of my Suite of the Month program. All items are available to be individually too. I have yet to crack open the Memories and More package. So maybe I will lay everything out and see what’s included in that package to inspire a unique design.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop Fall is Here

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia. We have a wide array of projects to share with you bringing a little bit of fall into our projects. You may have arrived from Krissi’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

The Blackberry Beauty Suite is gorgeous and so much better in person! The pattern papers are gold foil on one side and coordinating prints on the other. I decided to use my last 2 strips of the oak leaf print on my greeting card. The strips make for an interesting background

Layer an ephemera tag and oak leaf die cut over a Gold Shimmer paper mat. Last detail are 2 copper Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots. All this on Blackberry Bliss cardstock, oh my! I opted to not stamp a sentiment on the tag until I am ready to use it.

Thanks for hopping with us each month. Now click on the next image to zoom to Tracy’s blog and see what fun project she designed.

The Rectangular Postage Stamp punch holds a larger sentiment so I opted to use it for this reason. That gorgeous paper is from the Blackberry Beauty Suite. The gold foil tag and gold flowery die cut are from the ephemera back from this suite. Gold Shimmer ribbon is from this suite too.
