PPP Blog Hop: Spooky Treats

 



Hi friends!! Thanks for joining us on this Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. Here is where we show you alternate projects you can make using some or all of the Paper Pumpkin kits. This month we are working with Spooky Treats, the September kit.

Here are the cute treat boxes as designed: 


These are the cutest treat boxes. I am giving some to my daughter for her work team, some to my neighbor for her nieces and some I will give to the barista at Starbucks, and cashier at the grocery store. I am also thinking about taking some on my morning walks, and giving them to the teens that we encounter waiting for their bus. 

Here is my alternative project: 




I have no idea what this fun fold is called, but it would work great when you needed to write a lot, or had a few people that needed to sign it. 

Hope you are inspired to make your kit as designed, or make some alternate projects. Join me as I hop on over to Charmane's blog to see what she has created with the Spooky Treat kit! Click on the pumpkin below....

Until next time...
 Happy Craftin'!

ICS Blog Hop: Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper

 


Good evening!! Thanks for hanging out with us tonight. We are picking our favorite Designer Series Paper (DSP) and making a project with it. This was so hard, like picking a favorite child! But I did it. 

I selected Boughs of Holly from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. Love the prints in this package. 

Here is my card:


I tried to showcase as many patterns of the DSP as I could on this card.I wanted to let the DSP do all the work, so added just a simple sentiment from Vintage Christmas Stamp Set and a few Red Rhinestones. 

 I cannot wait to see what DSP everyone selects, and what they do with it. Hope you hop along with me and check it out too!

Let's go over to Sandra's page and see what she has created. Hope you enjoy the hop!

Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!

Painted Pheasant

 Are you ready for fall? I am! I love sweaters, pumpkin spice and the change in the air! With our recent move to Tennessee, we should see a real change in seasons, and I am excited about it. 

This or That Stampin' choices this week were: 


Painted Pheasant won. I got some good use out of the Stamparatus with the step stamping, and even on the pheasant, being able to stamp him more than once to mute some of the colors that I added. 

Here is what I did with this cute pheasant:


Pheasants bring back memories of my grandmother. We called her Granga. She had a pheasant that would visit her and eat out of her hand. I never met it, but remember seeing the pictures. Isn't it funny what can trigger memories sometimes?

Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!

ICS Blog Hop: Stylish Sketches

 


Hello!! The Inspire Create Share team have some projects to share with you that feature our new Sale A Bration (SAB) products. I love that Stampin' Up! uses SAB to give back to its customers, and recently has been doing two SAB's per year! 

I used two SAB products; the Stylish Sketches Stamp Set and the Rings of Love Designer Series Paper (DSP). This DSP is lovely, as is all of our DSP! And the fact that it is free makes it even better!! And I love the sketched images in the stamp set I chose. I cannot wait to play with some of the other images. 


I used some colors that I don't normally use. This would be a great masculine or nature lover birthday card!

Hope you like my card! What is your favorite  new SAB product? Can you pick one, or is it like picking your favorite child? 

Thanks for stopping by. Please, join me as I hop on over to Elizabeth's blog, to see what SAB item she chose to showcase! Then go through the whole hop and see if you can spot a project using your favorite!
