IDEAS Blog Hop: Positive Thoughts

Happy Monday! Glad you could join us for the monthly IDEAS Blog Hop. We are a group of international demonstrators who create a monthly bundle of tutorials for our customers and team members. In April we selected our favorite bundle and created with that! I chose the stamp set Positive Thoughts and the coordinating Nature's Thoughts Dies.

I love these stamps, but really loved some of the die elements too!


Of course, I cannot show you my actual projects, it would ruin the surprise! But, here is a One Sheet Bag that I made using a different stamp set and designer series paper: 

Who wouldn't want their birthday present delivered in this? The best part about creating it?! NO cutting, only scoring, so easy to make! Want instructions, see below,. This whole tutorial could be yours for a very low price!!

What would you put in the bag? And who are you going to give it to?

The tutorials include current Stampin' Up! products, have color photos, supply lists, step by step instructions, and feature both imperial and metric measurements! There are over 20 card and 3D projects included in this month's bundle. Would you like a copy of the instructions of all the projects to use for your personal use, or even to use in your classes? Contact me, or your participating demonstrator, to find out how to get your tutorial bundle! They are available for a very low cost or even better, for FREE! 

Once you have received the tutorials, please remember not to share or distribute the printed or electronic copies of these bundles. We have worked hard to provide these exclusive projects for your use. If you know someone that would like to purchase the bundle, please direct them to me, or their participating demonstrator, to obtain their copy. Thanks for your support.

Leave me a comment before you hop on over to MaryKate's blog to see what fun projects she has to share with us! 

Until next time...Happy Craftin'!

Manic Monday

ICS Blog Hop: Beautiful You

Hello, and welcome to the April Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop! We are glad you are hoping with us. Hopefully, we can inspire you and take your mind off of the craziness in the world right now!

This month, our theme is "It's a Girl Thing". The project is to be a feminine and here was the real challenge: monochromatic.

So, the color I chose is Rococo Rose, and the stamp set is Beautiful You. I have not used this set in a while, and am wondering why?! It is so pretty, and should be used more often.

Don't forget the inside....

I love how this turned out. I love a good challenge, and this is one I really had to work at since we only could use one color. Hope you like it too!

Leave me a comment, and then follow the hop to see what the others have been inspired to share with you!! The talented Charmaine is up next, let's go see what she has for us!!

PPP Blog Hop: No Matter the Weather

Welcome to the monthly Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. We hope you are staying safe and sane. So glad we can provide some diversion from the world around us right now.

We love Paper Pumpkin and love to share our enthusiasm for this monthly box of fun and creativity with you. The Paper Pumpkin kit is designed so you can follow the instructions provided in the kit to make the projects, or use the supplies as a starting point to let your creativity run wild (as we have!) Hop along with us, as we will share alternate ideas on how we used the March Paper Pumpkin Kit: No Matter the Weather.

Here are the projects as designed:

And remember we got a FREE stamp set, so here is the kit stamp  

And here is the FREE one!! So cute!

I love this kit so much! It is wonderful by itself; I didn't really want to make alternate projects with it. So, I just used different components of the kit to make an alternate card. I did add a full size card base in Thick Whisper White, some Petal Pink ink for the flower background, a vellum flower and leaf from the Peaceful Poppies Elements Kit (151327), and some Wink of Stella. Other than that, all else came from the kit. 

That bunny is so cute, and I love the shimmer the Wink of Stella adds to the flowers:

I hope you are inspired to create an alternative project, or just complete the kit as designed, either way, you will not go wrong!!

Now, hop along with me to see what the other bloggers have created for us to enjoy, and maybe even copy! Let's go to Anastasia's blog first and see what she did!

A Mindful Approach to Restlessness - The Mindfulness Remedy

Things are tough right now. I hope you and yours are well! 

I know some people have been home for several weeks now, and people are getting restless. I think crafting is a great way to relieve the stress and the restlessness. I don't know about you, but I can spend hours in my studio creating, too bad the hubby and pups want to eat occasionally! 

To help more people get their craft on, I am offering FREE shipping on any Stampin' Up! order from me, from now until 6:00pm PT on Tuesday, March 31st. 
To take advantage of the free shipping, PM me your order no later than 6:00pm Tuesday, March 31st. I will notify you when it arrives, and make arrangements for you to pick it up from my porch, no contact, of course. If you are outside the area, or confined to your home, message me and we will figure out together, how to make it work for you. 

Since this is the final 2 days of Sale A Bration (SAB), make sure to get your freebies! Also, the April Paper Pumpkin deadline is fast approaching. Paper Pumpkin subscriptions can earn SAB items too!


And the Coordination items are only available until March 31st, so don't miss out on those! If you got the ladybugs, the dies will be gone. If you bought Special Someone, or Positive Thoughts stamp sets, those coordinating dies will be gone until the new catalog is released. And don't forget the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper that coordinates with 4, yes, 4 of our punches!!!


Please contact me with any questions, and of course, with your orders. 

My prayer is you all are safe! Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.
