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.

Ink and Share Blog Hop Anything But A Card

28059369_10155813494401140_2143749391452299936_n

Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop. This month, we are featuring projects that are anything but a card designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Sandrine Jse’s blog and her fabulous project.

My hop design below features designer series paper (dsp) Toil and Trouble with bewitchingly fun prints. I fussy cut the witches and little kitties from the same piece of dsp. Our dsp is double sided which makes it hard sometimes to pick which pattern to show.  I opted to show both sides with the spooky ghost print by folding over about 1/2 inch to reveal the purpley striped side.

Lots of mini night scene party favors ready for Fall Fling, an all demonstrator meeting that I coordinate.8 18partyfavor4-001

Spider Trinkets and little kitties add some fun. Someone said her crate shifted during Fall Fling and it gave her a fright because she saw the legs move. Spiders are tricky that way!

Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop Painted with Love Specialty

I am excited to be a hop stop with the Scrapbooking Sunday crew. Our April theme is pastels. So I looked at my paper stash and found the Painted with Love Specialty designer series paper has powder pink accents. The finely woven powder pink ribbon has a bit of shimmer and is slightly stiff so will be nice and flat on the layout.

The Painted with Love dsp is heavier weight so it will hold up well when cut using the Bold Butterfly framelit.

2 page, 12×12 inch layout…just add photos and journaling!

Tuck a snippet of powder pink finely woven ribbon between 2 hearts cut using the Mini Treat Bag framelit. Mat them with gold foil paper.

A trio of hearts cut using the Wood Crate framelit anchors the bottom right of the layout. The smallest hearts in the upper left and the single hearts are cut using the Support Ribbon framelits.
