Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring the theme Designer Series Paper. 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 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!
I decided to use products from the Hand Penned Suite, partly because the DSP is on sale this month, but also because I am in love with this suite. It is SO pretty and SO versatile. I’m not normally a pastel girl, but I had to have everything in this suite. I also decided to do a fancy fold card which was demonstrated at a recent team meeting of the Avid Inkers. Although the fold is not new, I had never seen it before, and I loved it too! It’s called a Tri Fold Spanner Panel Card and it’s much easier to make than it looks. I will try to post a tutorial later in the month.
The Hand Penned DSP is on sale for the rest of July. Seethis post for more details.
All of the products I used for this project are available in my online store here. If you live in Australia and don’t already have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I would be delighted to assist you. Click “Contact Me” at the top of this page or click here to get the conversation started. Thanks!

The 2021-22 Annual Catalogue is full of awesome NEW paper crafting products. I have joined with a global group of demonstrators to offer an amazing Suite of the Month program using products from this catalogue. If you don’t yet have a copy of this catalogue, contact me and I will arrange for you to get one.
The Suite of the Month initiative has been running for some time but I am new to it.
One product suite will be highlighted each month. I hope these suites are on your wish lists because you will earn a FREE make and take kit when you order the designated suite. My Youtube assembly video link will be emailed to you so that you can assemble your kit at your leisure.
In addition, I am collaborating with other demonstrators who will be sharing 2 projects each using the same product suite. This month, there are 6 demonstrators, so you get 12 FREE video tutorials. Although you will only get the kit for my make ‘n takes, you will be able to make all the other projects because you have purchased the suite! Much as we would like to buy everything in the catalogue, we also have to choose which are our favourite favourites, so the demonstrators can vary from month to month.
I will need some time to prepare your kit and post it to you. When I see an order come through with the designated Suite of the Month, I’ll send off your make and take kit to you that month.
You are welcome to order any other products on the same order so that you can earn and spend host rewards host rewards but if your order is under $250 (excluding shipping) please use the host code for that month shown in the sidebar this blog when ordering.
Here are the Suites being featured each month. Links to my online store to order these products are embedded. The page numbers refer to the 2021-22 annual catalogue unless stated otherwise.
July 2021 – Hand Penned Suite pp104-5, a whimsical collection in soft, pretty colours.
August 2021 – Beauty of the Earth pp 10-11, different tree images with vibrant, earthy colours.
I have just completed my projects for the July Suite of the Month. Tutorials are available from now. I look forward to sharing my projects with you, as well as those from others in the group..

I have fallen a bit behind on my posting over the last couple of months, especially from being away in Queensland for most of May, but I wanted to share some of the projects from my April Team meeting.
Above is a project put together after the meet. During the meet we stamped and diecut lots of greetings and of labels in lots of colours. The Many Messages Stamp Set carried over to the current Annual Catalogue and the Many Happening Stamp Set is new. Both co-ordinate with the Messages Die so we had a bit of a fun session creating the ingredients for many future projects. We all now have the right greeting on the right label in the right colour for any project. And you can mix and match them to make a fun card like this one.
We also had some swaps:
Vicki used the Etched in Nature Stamp Set and combined it with the blends and alcohol on vellum technique to create the beautiful panels. She used Misty Moonlight, Cajun Craze and Basic White.
Karen also used the Etched in Nature Stamp set but decided to use completely different images and a stunning black and white palette.
Frances chose to use the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle and to create a real WOW fold known as a Pop Up Twirl card.
I missed the May Team meet but they went ahead and met without me which is fantastic. We all enjoy these meets so much and learn so much.
I hope you are inspired by the projects I have shared here. I would love to have you join my small, enthusiastic team. see link below
