PPP Blog Hop: All the Best


Hello there! Here we are almost at the end of 2023? What are your New Year's Eve plans?
Are you going out? Or, staying in? Bed before midnight, or watch the ball drop?  

This is the last Paper Pumpkin Possibilities for 2023. So join us as we hop along and see what alternate projects we came up with to share with you.

I love Paper Pumpkin as is. Sometimes it is hard to use the consumables in a different way. But, we always have the stamps and ink left over, even once all the consumables are gone. So I like to focus on ways to use those, so you have ideas using other Stampin' Up! products.

So here is a card I came up with:

I did cut one of the cards apart. But, I can make a card using just the front of the card base as a layer on a Thick Basic White card base, so I didn't worry about using part of it. Also, I can substitute some Designer Series Paper in place of it, once all my consumables are used up. 

Hop along with me by following the links below to see what alternate project the other demonstrators have to share with us! Hope you see some things that will inspire you!

Until next time....
Happy Craftin'

Inspire Create Share Blog Hop: Homemade Holiday



Hi friends!!

Welcome to the final Inspire Create Share Blog Hop of 2023. We have some fun Homemade Holiday items to share with you today. We are focusing on anything, except cards this month.So you should be in for some treat...packaging, that is! 

I have 2 treat holders. One super simple and one a little more work, but still pretty easy!

Here they are:

First  is the super simple one. It is just a 2 1/8" x 7" strip of Designer Series Paper, folded around a piece of chocolate and then embellished with some gold metallic paper and our pretty little Holly Gems & Sequins. I used glue dots to hold the chocolate in the holder. These would be great to carry with you for the grocery clerk, the receptionist at the Dr. office, or the barista at your favorite coffee house. 

This one is made with our Scalloped Gift Card Boxes. So the box is simple to assemble, but I stepped it up making it into a shaker box. I, also, used the Holly Gems and Sequins for this, just picking out the musical notes. 

You can insert the gift card inside: 

Or replace the gift card holder with candy, or hide the candy under the gift card holder: 

I hope you are inspired as you hop along with us tonight! 

Let's go see what that oh so creative, Tricia has to share with us tonight! Click below to follow along. Leave comments if you see something you like, or have any questions! 

Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!

& Merry Christmas!

IDEAS Blog Hop: We Are Cut Out to be Friends!


Our December theme is, "We Are Cut Out to be Friends!" We are focusing on "cutting" this month; This is anything you cut out, such as cutting with dies, punches, or even fussy cutting.

Here are some snippets of the projects you will see in the bundle:

This bundle includes projects from 13 demos from all over the world. It has over 50 pages, and tutorials for 19 projects. There is definitely something for everyone. 

My projects are exclusive to the bundle. But, I have made an alternate card using some of the same products and the same bundle, Merriest Trees. Consider it a bonus project!

It is a mini slim line card and fits in a standard letter size envelope. The sentiment is from the Sending Smiles stamp set. 

Are you intrigued and would like to see the entire bundle? 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!
