PPP Blog Hop: Summer Nights



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 February Paper Pumpkin Kit: Summer Nights.

 

This month's kit made 9 postcard style cards, 3 each of 3 designs, AND 9 cute little tealight bags! Here are the cards as designed:



I took one of the tealight bags, and cut the front off of it, so I could use the "burst" as a template. I then sponged a variety of colors on the front of a white gift back using sponge daubers, so it would look like fireworks going off. 


I cut one of the postcards down to make a tag, and then added the tissue paper from the Paper Pumpkin kit wrapping for inside the gift bag. I like how it turned out! It will be a fun gift bag to fill for my friend with a summer birthday!


Glad you could join us, and hope you have been inspired to get your kit out and create. Click on the pumpkin below and hop on over to Tricia'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'!


It's time to celebrate the everyday champions in your life! Join us and use the August Paper Pumpkin kit to show appreciation for the "World's Greatest" at making our lives better!

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?

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!!
