Creativity Abounds Tutorial Bundle Design Team Blog Hop – Anything But Christmas

Welcome to our August Creativity Abounds Blog Hop. We are a group of very keen Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world that are coming together to share our creative ideas with you. We are happy that you can join us and hope that we can Inspire you to make creations of your own.

If you live in Australia and shop with me you will receive this tutorial bundle FREE! This tutorial bundle uses a range of products from the August – December 2021 mini catalogue. The theme that we used here is “Anything but Christmas”. Here is a sneak peek of the images that are featured in the tutorial bundle this month.

To offer additional inspiration, we have all created an extra project to share with you in this hop. My favourite stamp set in this mini catalogue is Delivering Cheer.

I used the Artistic Dies to cut out the flowers. The background and her coat is Whimsy and Wonder DSP (Stay tuned for details of how you can join a Whimsy and Wonder suite online event with this fabulous group of ladies)

Below is a video showing you how I made this card.

You may be starting here or have come from someone else’s blog – either way there is a list at the end of this post to help you move around all the different blogs and get many amazing ideas. We all have our country listed – so if you are looking for a demonstrator in your country, these demonstrators would love to look after you with your Stampin’ Up!® shopping or if you would like to join our Stampin’ Up!® teams.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Punch Spotlight

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 “Punch Spotlight”. For my card, I have chosen one of the older (but still good) punches – the medium daisy punch.
You may have arrived from Shirley Merker’s blog. Did you love her punched project?

I have created a pot of daisies that can sit on your mantle piece and will bloom all year round. It is the one pot, that no one will be able to kill by forgetting to give them water! The background was stamped with the big Daisy Garden stamp. The daisies were from the Daisy Lane, punched out with the Daisy punch and then layered on top.

If you would like to make this card, you can see the full explanation of how I did it in my video

Simply Elegant Flip Card

I am happy to be taking part in Kylie’s Monthly International Blog Highlights again.
The theme for this hop is “Thank you”. Many people forget those simple words. I have seen people’s days brightened because someone said a simple thank you to them.
Show your appreciation to people in your lives who have inspired you, helped you or supported you by sending them a thank you card or project.

This is what the card looks like when it is closed – fairly unassuming, but the WOW! comes in when it is opened.

I demonstrated this fun fold in the May 2021 Global SU Share fair. This is a customer group which is hosted by an international group of incredibly talented demonstrators. All of my customers are invited to the Facebook page and can participate in the event. The card I am demonstrating uses the Dressed To Impress stamp set and All Dressed Up dies, but the instructions for making the card are the same – just change the stamp set and DSP!

Measurements for this card are:
Card Base – 14.9x21cm / 81/2×51/2″
Z fold – 12.5x15cm / 41/2×6″
White: 2 pieces 12.1×4.6cm / 17/8×43/8″
1 piece 14.4x10cm / 4×51/4″
DSP: 3 pieces 14.4x10cm / 4×51/4″
1 piece 12.1×4.6cm / 17/8 x 43/8″
