Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Gift Packaging

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 “Gift Packaging”. Whether you are still wrapping your Christmas presents, or giving a birthday or just because present, I am sure that you will find inspiration here.

This project was inspired by Debbie Blake, a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Western Australia. All that you need to make this is a square piece of DSP (this one uses Beauty of the Earth DSP) and a library clip. To make it, all you need to do is fold your paper!

If you use Christmas paper, you can tie a ribbon through the library clip and it can double up as a Christmas tree ornament. These are photos showing the top and bottom of the bag

Here is a quick video which will explain how to fold the paper

Be sure to complete the hop to see all the wonderful ideas that we have to share with you. The next stop is Annette. I can’t wait to see what she has created this month.

Blue New Year!

Thank you for joining us for the November Blogging Friends hop. The theme for this hop is “Blue”. Projects feature monochromatic projects in different shades of blue.

As soon as I saw the new Simply Marbelous DSP which is one of the Sale-A-Bration items which is redeemable from 3rd January, I knew that I wanted to use it to make a starburst card.

This paper is beautiful and comes in shades of blue, green, yellow, pink, purple and grey. The alternate pieces are the Ombre Specialty Paper.

The video below is one I did using the ombre paper from an earlier Sale-A-Bration, but you will be able to see the technique.

Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop – Christmas Cheer

Thank you for joining us for the November 2021 Stampin’ Creative blog hop. The theme for this month is “Christmas Cheer”. I have decided to use the Ever Eden DSP for my card. Remember, this suite is a pre-order for the January – June 2022 mini catalogue, and the DSP is only available as part of the pre-order. If you want some, you need to place your order ASAP as it is only available while stocks last.

Last month after World Card Making Day, we had world card sending week. I received this card from Leona Bourgault in the USA, and I loved everything about the card, so I had to try and CASE it.

For my card, I inked up my Evergreen Forest 3D embossing folder with Soft Succulent ink and then ran it through my Cut & Emboss machine. Using a standard card base, I cut 5cm (2″) off one edge and then cut that strip into my 3 squares.

Measurements:
Base (Soft Succulent) – 14.9cm x 16.0cm scored at 10.5cm (5 1/2″ x 2 1/4″ scored at 4 1/4″)
Cut the strip that you cut off into 3 equal squares 4.95cm (1 7/8″)
Insert (Basic White) – 14.4cm x 10.0cm (5 1/4″ x 4″)
Basic White (tree embossed) – 5.0cm x 14.4cm (2″ x 5 1/4″)
DSP – 5.0cm x 14.4cm (2″ x 5 1/4″)
– 3 pieces 4.5cm x 4.5cm (1 3/8″ x 1 3/8″)

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Below is the list of all the hop participants. Be sure to visit them all to see what summer dreams they have to share. We love hearing from you, so please leave us comments to let us know what you think about our projects.

Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop – Pansy Petals Drapery Fold

Welcome to the November 2021 Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You may be starting at my blog or landed here from another one.
Our theme this month is “Use Your Stash!”. Like a lot of us, I tend to hoard my DSP. Logically I know that this is a silly thing to do. Using DSP is an easy way to make beautiful cards, but you look at a sheet of paper and think “that is too pretty to cut into”. The a new catalogue comes along and there is new pretty DSP to add to the stash, and so it grows!

This is a drapery fold using the Pansy Petals DSP. I have cut into it to make it look like a curtain that has been tied back. For the fold, you need a piece of DSP that is
14.5cm x 14.5cm (5 1/4″ x 5 1/2″). Score at 2.5cm , 4.0cm, 6.5cm, 8.0cm, 10.5cm, 12.0cm
(1″, 1 1/2″, 2 1/2″, 3″, 4″, 4 1/2″). Place the bottom right corner of the DSP on the edge of your paper trimmer and the bottom left corner on the cutting track and cut along the diagonal.
Accordion pleat along the score lines. Give it a good press with your bone folder. Cut a slit up to the edge of the first pleat. Fold the paper back along the cut up to the top and bottom corner. Tie a ribbon here so that it looks like it is holding your curtain back. Attach to your card with tear ‘n tape.

An additional feature of the DSP is that it coordinates with the Pansy dies. You can use the dies to cut the pansies and leaves out of the DSP.

I hope my card has inspired you to get stuck in and use up your stash! You are currently visiting Tracy Held at Trace Of Creativity in Australia. Please see the list below & hop through all of the people on the list to see all our projects.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Whimsy & Wonder

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”. As we have been in lockdown for so long, I feel like everyone is behind where we usually are on making Christmas cards. This one lets the DSP make the statement with a few fun elements added.

I love the Whimsy & Wonder suite. The Christmas trees are fun images and the DSP is amazing. I know lots of people who spent time during lockdown doing puzzles, so that skill comes into this card. I cut out four trees – two in Evening Evergreen and two in Soft Succulent. Place a strip of tear and tape down the back of the tree. Take the pieces from the Soft Succulent and place them into the Evening Evergreen tree and vice versa. I stuck one tree onto the inside of the card, and the last one onto the envelope.

Be sure to complete the hop to see all the wonderful ideas that we have to share with you. The next stop is Annette. I can’t wait to see what she has created this month.

Toblerone Crackers

Thank you for joining us for the November Blogging Friends hop. The theme for this hop is “Last Minute Christmas or Boxing Day Gift Ideas”.

I love making these triangular crackers with a mini (50g) Toblerone inside them. I have seen them on special for $1 each at the supermarket this week, so it was time to stock up and start making crackers! You can get 3 crackers out of one 12″sheet of DSP, so this makes an inexpensive gift that brings lots of happiness (Everyone loves chocolate!)

Below is a short video which shows how easy they are to make.

We have a super awesome group of demonstrators sharing their talents in our private Facebook group called the Global SU Share Fair. We broadcast about every other month with videos available on replay if you miss the live days.

This group is an exclusive group for our customers. If you are a customer and are not part of the group, please ask for an invitation.

Today we are CASEing the January 2021 Share Fair projects, with a Christmas/holiday twist. We created a tutorial bundle with all of the fantastic ideas that were presented on that day. I had a really hard time deciding which idea to CASE, but after looking through the bundle numerous times, I decided to CASE Jacqui Lawrence’s accordion fold card. Here is her card (first photo) and my version of it.

The main components of the card are using the Whimsy & Wonder suite. The words are from the Floral Gallery dies and the sentiment is from Poinsettia Petals.
