Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Curvy Christmas Card

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you! Our theme this month is “December Holidays”. You may have arrived from Shirley Merker’s blog. Didn’t she have a great project?

I am using the Curvy Christmas stamp set again along with the Classic Christmas DSP. Aren’t human beings ridiculous? Give us a straight stamp and we want to curve it! This sentiment stamp is curved, so of course I had to pull it straight! The DSP pack has Cherry Cobbler, Sahara Sand (used in this card) and Shaded Spruce as the colour palate. I also used the Brushed Metallic cardstock

Paper Pumpkin Christmas card class

As we approach the end of a crazy year, I have had questions about when we are making Christmas cards.  If times were normal, we would have already done a class.  Following on from the success of the Sending Sunshine paper Pumpkin kit, Stampin’ Up! has brought the Christmas kit to Australia.

This kit makes 8 cards (4 each of 2 different designs).  The video below shows the unboxing, and you can see what comes in the kit

I will be running this as a Zoom class again on the 21st November at 2:00.  The cost of the class will be $50 ($65 if you need the acrylic block for stamping).  This will give you the Paper Pumpkin kit which will be delivered to you door plus the card stock to make some additional projects to use up the additional supplies in your kit.

I am participating in a Black Friday event with 3 other demonstrators – Shirley Merker is from the USA, Sandra Roberts is in the UK and Elizabeth Green is in Canada.  The way that this event will run is that we are each doing 2 tutorials (one card and one 3D project.  There will be a PDF and a video tutorial.  I will be online (Zoom link) for 2 hours on the 27th, and we can craft together doing projects in the class, or anything else that you want to work on or we can just have a social catch up.

The cost of the class with be $25, or it will be free with a $35 order.  If you sign up for the Paper Pumpkin class, you will get the Black Friday class as a bonus.

To allow time for the kits to be delivered, please contact me to confirm your place and order your kit by the 14th November.

You can be anywhere in Australia to participate in the class, looking forward to seeing you there

Poinsettia Petals Mini Pizza Box

Welcome to this month’s Blogging Friends Blog Hop. The Theme for this month is “Anything but a card”. I have decorated a mini pizza box. You could be forgiven for thinking that I only have 2 stamp sets. It seems that every time I start creating there are a couple that jump into my hand and won’t leave! This box used the Poinsettia Petals bundle again.

It is really difficult to get a photo of shiny paper. This is using the silver foil sheets. (It looks a bit gold in some places, but in the paper it is definitely silver). Below is the front of the box

Thanks for dropping by my blog. i hope that you have fun hopping along to day. Be sure to leave a comment as we all love to know if you enjoy our projects.

We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin’ Up!® business and reach some goals we have set. We really appreciate your support. You may be starting here or may have come from another blog – either way, you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today.

I recently took part in a creative challenge. We were given the components, and asked to make a card. The list was: choose your colour of your card base, a neutral colour for the first layer embossed with an embossing folder, 4 pieces of DSP 9.5cm x 3cm, a shape for the sentiment and ribbon and embellishments.
For this card I have used thinner strips of DSP as 3cm was a bit thick. I love the versatility of this card. Choose any sentiment that you like and use the DSP to make your #.

Thank you so much for coming by today! We have an amazing line up of Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators, and we know you are going to love all the amazing projects that you are going to see today.
