Paper Crafting Blog Hop – November 2020 – Curvy Christmas

PaperCraftingBlogHopBadge

Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring the theme, December Celebrations.  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 creative inspiration from them. You may have started here, or arrived from the talented Tracy Held’s blog.  Wasn’t her project amazing? Either way, you’re in the right place!

For me, Christmas is my December Celebration, so I am excited to share a Christmas Card with you today.  I used the Curvy Christmas stamp set and coordinating Curvy Dies, as well as the Classic Christmas DSP..

Colours are Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce, Pool Party and Silver embossing. I also used lashings of Shimmery Crystal Effects.

I love this card. The colours in the Suite are just gorgeous. During the event, we were shown how adaptable this card layout is. You can rotate 90 degrees, switch out colours/stamps/paper and alter in other ways to create endless card ideas. The 2 cards below are similarly versatile.

More Onstage@Home 2020

OnstageGiftsStampinUpAnnetteMcMillan09112020

Our Netty’s Inkers group, and one Avid Inker, travelled to the coast for onstage. Here are some of the gifts we shared. I created the notebooks. I got the idea from another demonstrator, Sayerah Deasey, They are made using SU grid paper. I also did the little treat packs. This one was the only one left and it had been half nibbled! I made the ‘numbers on a stick’ so we knew when everyone had won one of the giveaway prizes. Last but not least, my SU sister Frances crocheted the little dragonflies for us. How cute are they?

DragonflyGardenBundle_StampinUp_AnnetteMcMillan_09112020

This is the Dandy Garden Bundle I purchased for Onstage. All of the products will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalogue. They were also used for some of the projects created during the online onstage sessions.

Annette’s Project

Each of us prepared a project for the other four to complete. This was the project I led. I got the idea from Tracy Held here. Such a cool technique, I thought, and it can be done with other shapes too!

OnstageSwaps5StampinUpAnnetteMcMillan09112020
Vicki’s Project

Vicki led this project using a tutorial purchased from Tania Bell here. The cloche hat cards were made using retired products and each hat is shown here with its own matching gift box. Who wouldn’t love to get one of these?

OnstageSwaps3StampinUpAnnetteMcMillan09112020
Karen’s Project

Karen led a project using the Gift Wrapped Stamp Set, the Gift Bow punch and the ‘Tis the Season and Toile Tidings Designer Series Papers. The card is a Swing Arm Card Design. I’ve wanted to try one of these for some time so I was very pleased.

OnstageSwaps2StampinUpAnnetteMcMillan09112020
Frances’s Project

Frances led a project using the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set and the Poinsettia Dies as well as the Red Velvet Paper and the Little Details Embossing Folder Set, which gave a stunning effect on the vellum, as did the the embossed detail of the Poinsettia Dies on the Red Velvet Paper. The card tucks in under the greeting tab to form a shape like a Bay Window, but folds flat for posting. Isn’t it cool!

OnstageSwaps4StampinUpAnnetteMcMillan09112020
Anne’s Project

Anne led a project using the cute stamp set from Sale-A-Bration earlier this year, The Gang’s All Meer. We used a technique to create silhouettes by colouring in the stamped images with a black marker, inspired by Tami White. We also added a few arms so that they were in a group hug. The clouds were sponged using the delightful tag topper to create a cloud stencil. Yet another wonderful project!

So, we all had a fun few days of crafting. I’ll be back soon to show you more.

All current projects are available in my online store here

On Stage@Home 2020

OnstageSwagBag5StampinUpAnnetteMcMillan09112020

This Box arrived in the post. It is called a Swag and I ordered it as an extra for Onstage. We received advice that the shipment had been held up and was unlikely to arrive before Onstage started on 5 November. However SU and Australia Post came through! I was so excited when my daughter brought it in on 28 October.

OnstageSwagBag1StampinUpAnnetteMcMillan09112020
So I opened it up and this is what I found. A beautiful new stamp set from the January – June 2021 Mini Catalogue, some cute trading pins…..and
OnstageSwagBag4StampinUpAnnetteMcMillan09112020
A gorgeous, enormous tote bag, with a wonderful section at the bottom, with a zip opening, big enough for the SU Paper Cutter………………and
OnstageSwagBag3StampinUpAnnetteMcMillan09112020
Cute little notepads, stickers, worksheets, and a rainbow pen.

I was so excited, but didn’t know if I could share pics, then ran out of time, but now I’m back from my onstage retreat and thought I would share all this wonderful merch (my daughter told me this was the term) with you.

I’ll be back soon with more news and pics so come back soon.
