IDEAS Blog Hop: Lovely Labels Pick a Punch

Hello crafters!  I'm so excited to share our July IDEAS Blog Hop with you today. We are featuring projects with punches! We have so many fabulous new punches, and some great ones that carried over! Our tutorial is full of amazing creative ideas from 14 demonstrators from all over the world! Yes, we have added some new demonstrators to our fun group! Which means you get more project ideas!

This is a fun fold design with the new Lovely Label Pick a Punch, which is what I used on my actual project.  My actual tutorial design is secret and exclusively shared in the tutorial, but I wanted to show you yet another idea to use this punch!! It is a goodie; one you will want it in your craft arsenal!

I love that the punch has 3 different sizes so it makes the perfect layered label! And it makes two different style labels! 

Each tutorial designer features at least one project this month, some include multiple projects. Would you like a copy of the tutorials for these projects for your personal use, or even to use in your classes? Contact your member demonstrator or me.  I offer  three options to acquire our IDEAS tutorial bundle:

1. Place a $35 order with my online host code, shop here, using Host Code 6BEK2HXC

2. It is free for all of my team members, join here

3. Purchase it for $15.

 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 to obtain their copy. Thanks for your support!

I hope you enjoy the my project. Please leave comments before you hop to the next one. Now, go with me to Sherry's blog and see what she has done with circle punches!

ICS Blog Hop: Tasteful Touches Bundle

I am so happy that you could join us on the June Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop! 

This month, we are focusing on our favorite bundles in the new 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. I chose the Tasteful Touches Bundle. I seem to use it quite a bit, but it is so easy to create with!

I chose a new (to me) fun fold. It is called the Building Block Fun Fold. Once you get the initial scores and cuts done, it goes together pretty easy. 

Here is the top view, so you can see how it looks from that angle. 

And the flower is so pretty cut out and colored with the Wink of Stella. Love the sparkle it adds!

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

PPP Blog Hop: Box of Sunshine

Welcome to the monthly Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. 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 June Paper Pumpkin Kit: Box of Sunshine.


This month's kit makes 8 cards, 2 each of 4 designs. It includes lots of extra items to create your own additional cards....along with stuff to decorate the unique Paper Pumpkin box so you can pass it along to a friend, sharing some sunshine with them! 

Here are the cards as designed:

For my alternate project, I wanted to make something other than a card, and settled on a banner. This turned out so bright and cheery! I love it! 

Unfortunately, I couldn't get a great photo of the banner, so I took some individual ones of each element. The only things I added were some Thick Whisper White card stock, the Gold Edged Ribbon, and a "friend" sentiment from a past Paper Pumpkin kit.

Glad you could join us, and hope you have been inspired to get your kit out and create, Once you have your card(s) made, fill the box with all things yellow to send to a friend! Click on the pumpkin below and hop on over to Darla's blog to see what fun she has created to share with you!


It would be awesome if you leave a comment on our projects along the way!! 

Until next time...Happy Craftin'!
