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'!

ICS Blog Hop: Field of Flowers


Thank you for joining us on the Inspire Create Share Blog Hop. This month, to celebrate a new catalog and one of the things we love about a new catalog, we are featuring the 2020-2022 In Colors! Stampin' Up! gave us some terrific colors this year, don't you think?!


I couldn't decide on which color to showcase, so I showed them all. Everything about this card is new stuff, except the Thick Whisper White card base and the Whisper White layer. The punches, the Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the ribbon, all new!! And you can start ordering this stuff now too!! 

Without further ado, here is my card:


The little flowers were a happy accident. I punched the first flower out of a scrap of the DSP, and it had the polka dot in the middle. I liked how it looked, so made sure to get the polka dot in the center (or close to it) of all of the little flowers. They are just the sweetest and so easy if you use the Confetti Flowers Border Punch, that coordinates so nicely with the Field of Flowers Stamp Set. So well, in fact, you can get them as a bundle and save 10%!

I know, I cannot wait to see how the other bloggers have used the new In Colors, and I hope you will hop along with me to check them out. If you are inspired and see some projects you love, please leave us a comment. We so appreciate your support! Click on the next button to see what Deb has created for you!!

IDEAS Blog Hop: Tasteful Touches


Hello crafters!  I'm so excited to share our June IDEAS Blog Hop with you today. We are featuring projects that highlight the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog that goes live on June 3rd. Yes, in 2 days!! Our tutorial is full of amazing creative ideas!  For my tutorial, I used the "In Good Taste" Suite. 

The below graphic is a sneak peek at the some of the projects in our June IDEAS Tutorial Bundle.


My actual tutorial designs are exclusively shared in the tutorial, but I m sharing the same type of card just using different product with you today. 

My card is a fun fold called an Open Book Easel Card. My friend, Claudia, shared the project with me and then, she showed me and some others on our team how to make it. I, in turn, wanted to share it with you all, cuz it is so clever!! 



The book folds down to be a little flatter. But it is not one to go into a regular envelope, or it may be squished. 

What do you think of it? Want to see another? Buy the tutorial and you will! You will also get the step by step instructions. measurements (imperial and metric) and color photos, too.

Each tutorial designer features at least one card and one 3D project, some include multiple projects. You are getting over 20 project ideas for one low price. Would you like a copy of the tutorials for these projects for your personal use, or even to use in your classes? Contact your participating demonstrator or me.  I offer three options to acquire our IDEAS tutorial bundle:

1. Place a $35 order with my online host code BJ7FDMAV. Shop here

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

3. Purchase it for $15.
