Paper Crafting Blog Hop Under My Umbrella

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

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?

One of a Kind Virtual Facebook Event Recap

Thanks to Brian and Carol from the One of a Kind Stamp and Scrap Expo for hosting their first virtual event today on Facebook. It was fun to be a presenter and share my One Sheet Wonder Create Along with Me. Here is what I created during the session…

That’s 9 cards from one sheet of Peaceful Poppies designer series paper!

Here is the scrap map for cutting the dsp. Follow the circled numbers to make the cuts at the designated inch mark.

I’ll also shared a scrapbook layout using a second, magnificently printed paper with 2 rows of poppies that can be cut in half.

The scrapbook layouts did not use a full sheet of dsp for the photo mats and only a few pieces of cardstock.

These are the supplies I started with to create the cards: 9 card bases, 9 inside whisper white card liners, 9-5×4 inch solid color cardstock that has been embossed, 2-4×4 inch solid color cardstock, 9 punched pieces large enough for your sentiment, 9 pieces of about 3.75 inch ribbon, 1-12×12 inch boldly printed designer series paper, self adhesive embellishments, stamp set with sentiments, ink pad and personal trimmer.

One of a Kind Virtual Facebook Event

The One of a Kind Stamp and Scrap Expo is an in person event held at the Madison, Wisconsin Alliant Energy Center in October. The show has been around for many years and showcases all that the stamping and scrapbooking world has to offer. I have been a vendor for the past few years and have been in and out of the show since it started.

The show organizers also have a store which has been closed due to Staying Safer at Home. So instead of foot traffic, they have created a virtual Facebook event that we can participate from the comfort of our stamp spaces. Grab your coffee, tea and biscuits, it runs from 10am-4:30pmish today!  Click this link to join the group.

I’ll be hosting a One Sheet Wonder Create Along at 3pm in this group. Grab these supplies if you want to join me:

9 card bases, 9 inside whisper white card liners, 9-5×4 inch solid color cardstock that has been embossed, 2-4×4 inch solid color cardstock, 9 punched pieces large enough for you sentiment, 9 pieces of about 3.75 inch ribbon, 1-12×12 inch boldly printed designer series paper, self adhesive embellishments, stamp set with sentiments, ink pad and personal trimmer.

The scrap map will be similar to the Bird Ballad map I used last Sunday during a Facebook Live Create Along on my business page. I’ll post what I create and also the revised scrap map after the session.
