09/26/23 Creative Crafternoon - CASE the Mini Catalog, pg 20

 Hi friends! Thanks for joining me on my CASE the Catalog journey. This week, I CASEd the September - December Mini Catalog. Better known in Stampin' Up! Circles as the Holiday Mini. I used a design from page 20. 

I used pumpkins instead of trees, used different Designer Series Paper, and turned the card horizontal instead of vertical, but really the same!! 

Here is mine:

Check out page 20 and let me know what you think.

Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop: With Love & Gratitude


Hi friends! Thanks for joining us on another Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. This is where we show you all, ok, well some of the things you can do with Paper Pumpkin: With Love & Gratitude! 

I love this kit, but I love Shelli's style and so it isn't surprising that I love it when she gets involved and helps design a kit. It doesn't happen often, so when it does, it is a real treat! 

Here is how the kit is designed to look when complete:

8 adorable 3" x 3" cards and 8 lovely treat bags! 

I always try to think about what I can do with the stamp set when the consumables are gone. Let me tell you a first glance, I thought the pumpkins were flowers. Which would have been beautiful, but I love them even more now that I know they are pumpkins!

I did cut up one of the mini cards, but you could just as easily use cardstock with a texture from an embossing folder, or some Designer Series Paper. So, I really felt this would still work when the consumables were all gone. What do you think?

Thanks for popping by, but don't stop now! Follow along and go through the list to see what alternate projects the others have created! 

Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!

ICS Blog Hop: Mini Catalog Showcase

Hi friends!!

Join us as we hop a long on another Inspire Create Share Blog Hop! We are showcasing products from the September- December 2023 Mini Catalog. 

I am using the Fragrant Forest background stamp. I think this is an easily overlooked stamp, and am hoping to change that. It can be used as a background or a focal stamp. 

Here is my card:

The sentiment is from the Merriest Trees Stamp Set. I used the Stylish Shapes and the new Deckled Circle Dies, the 2023-2025 In Color Jute Trim and the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. 

The colors came from the Stampin' Up! Color Coach:

I have a lot more uses for this stamp in mind. Keep a look out for what will come next. 

For now, join me as we hop along to Deb's blog to see what new item(s) she is showcasing. 

Hope you are inspired as you check out our projects!

Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!
