Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop: Exploring In Color


Hello friends! Welcome to another Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. We love Paper Pumpkin kits, and are happy to make them they way they were designed, But...we also like to think outside the box and see what we can come up with. Today, you will see all kinds of alternate ideas for your May Kit; Exploring in Color. 

Here is the kit as designed: 

Here are the components of the kit, including the consumables, stamps and ink spot.

I like to think about what will I do with this stamp set, once I make the kit up. So that is where I try to focus my alternate projects. Here is what I came up with for this month:

I love the fun elements, the cup reminds me so much of camping.  I could see these used on a camping, or hiking scrapbook page.

Hope you enjoy my card and the hop!!

ICS Blog Hop: Introducing the 2023-2025 In Colors!

Hello friends!  The Inspire Create Share Team is here to introduce the 2023-2025 In Colors. I know the past several years, the colors have been bright ones. This year they are more subdued, but no less beautiful. I have heard some do not like some of the colors, but hopefully you like a few of them, and the others will grow on you use them and see projects made with them. 

The colors are Boho Blue, Copper Clay, Moody Mauve, Pebbled Path & Wild Wheat.

So, without any further ado, here is my card using all the colors...

Thanks so much for stopping by. If you want, hop on over to Sharon's Blog to see what she made using these lovely new colors!  

Until next time...

IDEAS Blog Hop: Fast & Fabulous Little Monkey

Hello friends!! It is time for the May IDEAS Blog Hop! The IDEAS team is made up of Stampin' Up!  demonstrator from all over the globe. We pick our monthly theme, then create based on it. Our theme this month is "Fast & Fabulous".  I love simple and quick cards, so this is right up my alley!! I used a 6" x 6" one sheet wonder to make 4 fast cards. They are all similar, so don't take a lot of thought, but different enough that the recipients wouldn't think they were massed produced.

Here is a collage with snapshots showing  a peek at the different projects: 

The "Fast & Fabulous" Tutorial Bundle has projects from 11 global demonstrators. It  includes complete instructions for over 30 projects. More than 50 pages of instructions have color photos, imperial and metric dimensions, and complete supply lists. 

My actual tutorial designs are secret and exclusively shared in the tutorial.  But, here is a bonus project, not included in the bundle. It uses the same stamp set and Designer Series Paper, but is a completely different design: 

I think easel cards are fast and they truly are fabulous. It is just a different twist to a regular sized card, but definitely gives it a little WOW factor! 

Would you like a copy of the tutorial bundle to use personally or even use the projects in your classes? I have several ways you can obtain our IDEAS tutorial bundles:

1. Place a $35 order with my online host code, KDSTP9KSClick here.
