PPP Blog Hop: Ten Years of Growth


Happy Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop Day! The designed projects are beautiful, but myself and other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators were still able to make up alternate projects using the Ten Years of Growth kit. 

Here are the cards as planned by Stampin' Up!

My momma loves pink, so I wanted to add some more to my alternate card. Here is what I came up with:

I used paper from the Texture Chic Designer Series Paper pack, so pretty! I stamped the leaves on the reverse side of the envelope flap, and in Coastal Cabana ink on Coastal Cabana cardstock and fussy cut them all out. I embossed the lily image on vellum, colored on the reverse side with Stampin' Blends and also fussy cut it out. I did use one tag from the kit, and a strip of the gold cardstock. Everything else are Stampin' Up! products outside the kit. 

Hope you like my project. Let's hop on over to Cheryl's blog to see what she has come up with. 

Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!

ICS Blog Hop: Taco Fiesta Birthday Bash


Hello, hello!!

 I am so excited to share our Birthday Bash with you tonight!! Hop along with us and you will see all kinds of birthday projects...maybe even one or two that you can use for an upcoming event in your life!

I used the Taco Fiesta Stamp Set. It has all kinds of fun stamps and some great sentiments too! 

I chose to decorate one of the Embossed Treat Bags. Just think, if you wanted to do a pinata at your party, but had no place to hang it and/or not enough room to actually hit it and break it open. You could just decorate these bags with the cute pinata stamp, add some fun ribbons, and then fill it with stuff and hand them out to your guests. 

I am thinking of filling them up and gifting them to my gal pals, if we do a Cinco de Mayo luncheon. What would you put in yours?

Thanks for hopping with us tonight! Leave a comment when you see something(s) you like! Let's hop on over to Terri's blog and see what fun birthday related project she has to share with us!

Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!

Hello crafters!  I'm so excited to share our March IDEAS Blog Hop with you today. Our theme this month is: Stunning Scraps. Do you struggle with what to do with your scraps?

Here is a sampling of some of the projects you will find in this month's bundle:

My actual tutorial designs are secret and exclusively shared in the tutorial.  But, here is a bonus project, not included in the bundle, using what else....scraps!!
