ICS Blog Hop: Thank you with Splendid Thoughts

 


Hi friends!! This is the best way to end the 2022 Inspire Create Share Blog Hops with a "Thank You" theme! And most thank you's should end with a hug! So here is my hug to you for following along with us, commenting along the way and supporting us over the past year. 

I used the Splendid Thoughts Stamp Set and the Splendid Stems Dies. They are on the Last Chance list, so don't walk to grab them, RUN! 


Such a beautiful set; plants and ferns, along with the combo font sentiments, makes this a great set to have in your stash! And Thursday, December 12th is FREE shipping day, so perfect timing!

I cannot wait to see how the other demos say "Thank you!"

Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!

IDEAS Blog Hop: We are Cut Out to be Friends

 

Hello, and welcome to the IDEAS Blog Hop. The IDEAS team is made of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world. We pick a very broad theme each month and create to it. This month's theme is "We are Cut Out to be Friends." It is themed around cutting of any sort; die cutting, fussy cutting, punching, etc. 

Here is a collage with snippets of everyone's projects this month, just to give you an idea of what is included. 


Some demonstrators show their projects, others like myself, keep them secret for the tutorial bundle. But, I do give you an alternate project, or bonus project, if you please. So, here is my alternate project. It required dies cutting and punching, and a lot of hand cutting by yours truly! Hope you like it...




This month's bundle has projects by 13 global demonstrators. It includes has over 60 pages and over 20 project ideas! Each tutorial includes a supply list, color photos, instructions and measurements in both imperial and metric.

Would you like to get a copy of these tutorials for your personal use, or even to use the projects in your business?  I offer you 3 ways to either purchase, or get the tutorial bundle for FREE!

1. Place a $35 order here with my online host code to get it free!

2. It is free for all of my direct team members. Join my team here.

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop: From the North Pole

 


Hello there! Here we are almost in December? Have you knocked out much of your Christmas shopping? Well, either way... all those well thought out gifts will need to be wrapped, so this month's kit is very will timed! 

I love these tags that the kit was designed to make! They are going to be so useful on my gifts this year!


But, our goal here is to show you alternate projects using the kit! I am torn, cuz I like to show stuff using the kit contents, but also I think about..."what happens when the kit is all used up and all you have are the stamps?"

So, today, my card uses just the stamps, part of an add-on coordinating North Pole sack, and a maybe a little bit of leftover sparkle paper....


I love how this turned out! And I love how the stamps are forever, even after the kits are used up!

Here are the add-on gift sacks if you haven't seen them!


Well, you have lots more projects to look at, so let's click on the pumpkin below, and hop on over to Dana's blog to see what she has in store for us! Happy Hopping!

Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!

Artistic Mix Decorative Masks

 

Hello friends! 
Happy Hump Day!! 

This is a card using the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks. I used masking paper and masked off every 2 rows and alternated Pool Party and Pacific Point inks to get the background.
 
I used a stamp set, Framed & Festive from the new Fitting Florets suite. Love the oval dies!!! I used the bird and snowflakes from All Bundled Up.


You can watch the video of how I did it here

I am enjoying exploring all the different ways to use the masks. 

Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!

IDEAS Blog Hop: Faux Wood Burning

 

Giving Thanks is the November theme! I cannot wait to see everyone's projects. I am trying to be more thankful in my life and for the blessings I have. I am hoping to find some fun projects to use to show those around me how thankful I am for them!  I tried a new (to me) technique called Wood Faux Burning. I cannot wait to share it with you. 

Here is a collage of all the projects in the bundle. It gives you a little sneak peek of what to expect. 


And...since my projects are exclusive to the bundle, here is an alternate card I made using the same technique. Early Espresso ink is a deep brown color, but it is really made up of greens and reds and even a some yellows, all of which can be seen on the card, once you start adding some water and brushing over the design. 


November's tutorial includes creations by 12 international demonstrators, and is over 60 pages long. It contains more than 25 projects ideas, from simple to complex, and with lots of techniques to get your creative juices flowing! Each tutorial includes a supply list, color photos, instructions and measurements in both imperial and metric.

Would you like to get a copy of these tutorials for your personal use, or even to use the projects in your business?  I offer you 3 ways to either purchase, or get the tutorial bundle for FREE!

1. Place a $35 order here with my online host code to get it free!

2. It is free for all of my direct team members. Join my team here.

3. Purchase it for $15 USD.

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.

Come with me as I hop on over to my friend Janey's blog to see how she is Giving Thanks!  

Until next time...

Paper pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop: Ho Ho Ho

 


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 October Paper Pumpkin Kit: Ho Ho Ho

This month's kit made 9 cards, 3 each of 3 designs. Here are the cards as designed:



Here is my alternate card:


I used the stamps and only a couple of things from the kit; the Shaded Spruce strip and the candy striped strip. Both of those could be substituted for cardstock and a different Designer Series Paper, making this card recreatable using just the stamps and without all the kit contents.  

Glad you could join us, and hope you have been inspired to get your kit out and create, if you haven't finished it already! I love Christmas and hope you love what we have created. Click on the pumpkin below and hop on over to Tricia's blog to see what fun project she has  to share with you!

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....

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'!
