February Paper Crafting Blog Hop- Power of Hope

PaperCraftingBlogHopBadge

 

Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring Sale-A-Bration products.  I am excited to share another project with you today.  Fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe are participating, so we have lots of fun projects to share with you. I hope you get loads of inspiration from them. You may have started here or arrived from Krissi Hannah’s fabulous blog.  Either way, you’re in the right place.

I was inspired by a trifold card on Sharon Burkert’s blog here.  I loved Sharon’s project and, like her, I am fond of Black and White and a touch of red. However, I couldn’t just copy her card for this hop, so I used the design but different elements.

I started with the Bermuda Bay Card Base and then added the Lovely Lily Impressions DSP. Then I had to choose between using the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and the matching Dies, and the Power of Hope Bundle. I chose the latter, then I realised that I had used Bermuda Bay and the Stone 3D Embossing Folder last Hop. Oh well, I did say that I love both!

After I had put the stone texture on the top flap, I swiped that panel with a Whisper White Inkpad to bring the panel to life. I then paper-pieced the kimono with a slightly different pattern of the DSP. From there, I just kept adding elements like the twine and sequins.

Theses pics show how the circle panel sits inside the circular “hole” in the top flap.

And finally, I added the greeting panel with a strip of DSP, sequins and a little lantern.  Can you see how I made a fringe on the lantern with the twine?

Launch of 2020 January-June Mini Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration Brochure

Earlier this month I held an open house event in my home to launch the Stampin’ Up!  January – June (J J) Mini Catalogue and the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.  I prepared lots of samples using some of the new products  and we had Make N Takes, Prizes, Nibbles, Bubbles and everyone got to take home a copy of the Mini Catalogue and the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. 

We had lots of fun and I wanted to share some of the projects from that day.  It was a small group, maybe something to do with the fact that it was 42 degrees, although the aircon did a great job of keeping us cool.
