Inspire Create Share Blog Hop: All About Christmas


Hello friends!! It is a great time for Blog Hops, cuz we all need Christmas inspiration, right?!  Well, to help you out, the Inspire Create Share team is All About Christmas this month! 

I love this Fragrant Forest Background Stamp, but...I don't think it belongs in the background at all! I like it front and center, so all can see and enjoy it!

What do you think about it?!

I couldn't find any Christmas paper to coordinate with it. So, I turned to non Christmas Designer Series Paper and found a beautiful plaid in the Let's Go Fishing papers. I think it goes perfectly! Don't limit yourself to only using Christmas stuff, even on your Christmas cards. 

Hope you like my card. I would love a comment, if you do! Let's go see what Christmas inspiration Tricia has to share with us!

PPP Blog Hop: Home for the Holidays


Hi friends!! Welcome to another Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop, where we show you alternate ways to use your Paper Pumpkin kits! While I love Paper Pumpkin as is, and sometimes find it hard to use the product in alternate ways, I try to focus on what I will do with the stamps and ink after the consumable components are gone. 

So, using the stamps and other Stampin Up! products, here is what I created using the cute little house, trees and sentiments:

I also used A Walk in the Forest Designer Series Paper, and some snowflake embellishments. 

Have you created any alternate projects? Want more inspiration, hop along the list below to see what others did with their kits! 

Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!

IDEAS Blog Hop: Spread the Sparkle


Hi friends!! I hope you are ready to see some fun ideas, and maybe do a little scavenger hunting once you purchase the tutorial bundle (or get it for free!)

This month's theme is Spread the Sparkle. We are using sparkly stuff, papers, ribbons, gems, etc. But, since it is also the 5th anniversary of the IDEAS Tutorial Bundle and Blog Hop, everyone is including  five (5) of something in their projects. Can you figure out what each demo used for their 5? 

This bundle includes projects from 13 demos from all over the world. It has over 50 pages, and tutorials for more than 25 projects. There is definitely something for everyone. 

Here is a sneak peek of some of the bundle projects:

And since my project is exclusive to the bundle, I won't show it here. You will have to get the bundle to see it. But, I have an alternate project for you. Consider it a bonus project!

Here it is:

I did use the same stamp set, and it has all the shiny things, paper, foil, embellishments. But think more festive and party for my tutorial project! 

Are you intrigued? Do you want the bundle for your very own? You can own this bundle and use the projects for your personal use or even in your classes! There are three options to acquire our IDEAS tutorial bundle:

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

2. It is free for all of my team members, join 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!
