Paper Crafting Blog Hop – February 2021

PaperCraftingBlogHopBadge

Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop, featuring the SaleABration promotion 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 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 the Oh So Ombre DSP in my project because I just love it. (And its FREE during this promotion.) I thought the Merry Merlot would go well with the Rococo Rose and I think it does.

The stamp set is a hostess set and I hadn’t used it yet so thought I’d put some ink on that rubber. Unfortunately, there is no die to match this floral image but it wasn’t too difficult to fussy cut. I think the Gilded leafing and the gold ribbon really set it off, although they are much prettier in life.

Fancy Phrases gift Boxed cards- My Global SU Share Fair Projects for February 2021

FriendlyPhrasesCardBoxStampinUpAnnetteMcMillan04022021

Above is the project I created for the Global SU Share Fair last weekend, which featured gift packaging. The Rectangle Acetate Boxes are very easy to assemble and to decorate and are perfect for gifting hand made cards, treats, or any number of other gifts.

I chose to use the Fancy Phrases Bundle because I thought the large floral image would work well on the belly-band and the label, and the greetings, also from the same set, would work well too.

Above are the cards I created, and matching envelopes, to put in the Acetate Box.

FriendlyPhrasesCardBox1StampinUpAnnetteMcMillan04022021

And I decorated the inside. The colours were chosen because they are used in the Peony Garden Paper, and I think they are gorgeous. This is one of my favourite ways to select a colour palette which I know I will like, and the hard work is already done for you.

SUPPLIES USED:

  • Stamps: – Fancy Phrases Stamp Set
  • Packaging – Rectangle Acetate Box
  • Card: – Basic Grey, Petal Pink, Basic White, Champagne Paper
  • Ink : – Basic Grey, Petal Pink
  • Tools: – Fancy Tag Topper Punch, Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, Stitched So Sweetly Dies
  • Embellishments: Champagne Rhinestones, Petal Pink Organdy Striped Striped Ribbon

I chose to use products from the Dandy Garden Suite because I thought the dragonfly would sit nicely on the Stitched So Sweetly Diecut. I changed my ideas as the card evolved!

LAUNCH EVENT FOR JANUARY-JUNE MINI CATALOGUE AND SALEABRATION PROMOTION

Last weekend, I held a launch event in my home to showcase some of the lovely new products available this month in these publications.

Despite temperatures which were close to 40 deg C, all the ladies who came enjoyed the afternoon. We had a guided tour of the publications, displays of new products and projects made with them, bubbles, nibbles, make & takes, door prizes. We are fortunate in Canberra to have had no locally acquired cases of COVID 19 for quite a few months now, so we all enjoyed the company and had lots of fun.

I wanted to share pics of the projects available to create as make & takes.

The first was this card:
