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.

Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop You are My Anchor

28701642_10216314905810036_5229522907894174650_o

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! We are all fans of this monthly crafting kit and want to share with you our enthusiasm for this box of fun and creativity. The beauty of the Paper Pumpkin kit is that you can follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as they were designed, or use the supplies as a starting point and let your creativity run wild. On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use this April Paper Pumpkin kit: You are My Anchor.

I decided to use the stamps and baker’s twine included in the kit to create this hand stamped greeting card and matching envelope. Use the custom fold down technique to add interest to the Picture Perfect Party designer series paper. Glitter enamel shapes provide the anchor for the fold down.

The Adventure Awaits sentiment was cut using the rolling pin from the Apron Builder framelit set. Yes, those are brand new cutting pads. They are so clear and smooth feeling. You get to witness the first cut! I decided to treat myself to new plates since my old pairs were pretty worn.

Paper Pumpkin Alternate Project for You Are My Anchor

I’ll be a hop stop tomorrow for an alternate Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop featuring the April kit, You Are My Anchor. Today, I am sharing a project I designed in a few minutes with the help of this kit. The gift note makes a perfect gift bag tie on with enough space inside to write a personal message.

The gusseted cello bag is a roomy 6×17 inch bag that can contain a nice array of goodies. I designed this bag with the intent that this could be a bon voyage bag for a trip across the state, country or day outing too. The glare from the cello makes this photo out of focus but wanted to share the ruler scale for perspective.

Ink and Share Blog Hop Mini Treat Bag

28059369_10155813494401140_2143749391452299936_n

Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop featuring projects made with Stampin’ Up! products designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators. This hop spotlights the Occasions 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 use the Painted with Love Specialty designer series paper (dsp) to create a party favor using the mini treat bag thinlets. The heavy weight dsp make it a good option to create 3-D items.

Close up of the belly band and the fab rich razzleberry heart and “enjoy” accents that were cut using the mini treat bag thinlet set. The gold foil strip is 1 inch wide cut from our 12×12 inch gold foil sheets. See the next photo for an economy gold foil bow tip.

There are gold accents on the opposite side of the polka dot print dsp that I used to decorate the narrow note card. I positioned the bow thinlet over the gold foil. Then realized I could cover up the bow hole with a rich razzleberry heart. No one will know but you and me:)

The Painted with Love dsp and the narrow note cards and envelopes are on page 19 of the Occasions catalog. A hot chocolate packet nicely fits inside the mini treat bag. I delivered these to staff this week at a senior living community I visit. They were tickled that I took the time to create these and hand deliver them with thanks for making it possible for me to visit the community.
