Welcome to the monthly Blog Hop by Let’s Craft Together and thank you for joining us. We are a group of multi-cultural Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators in Australia who have developed a strong friendship though our love of stamping and our admiration of each other’s style of crafting.

Each month one of us sets a challenge that we use for the blog hop. This month’s is a Picture Challenge which was created by Maheswari Rajaguru and is shown below. it’s such an interesting picture, I can’t wait to see what everyone else comes up with. You might like to have a go at it yourself. If so, we would all love to see your creation.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – August 2023 -Punches Galore

PaperCraftingBlogHopBadge

Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring the theme Punches Galore.  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 chose to use several punches. Firstly, I selected the Vintage Bottle punch, but as my design evolved, I found myself using two more punches. Punches are very convenient tools, and you don’t have to leave your chair to use them!

Let’s Craft Together Blog Hop – August 2023 – Tic Tac Toe

Welcome to the first monthly Blog Hop by Let’s Craft Together and thank you for joining us. We are a group of multi-cultural Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators in Australia who have developed a strong friendship though our love of stamping and our admiration of each other’s style of crafting.

Each month one of us sets a challenge that we use for the blog hop. This month’s challenge is a Tic Tac Toe theme which was created by Tracy Held and is shown below. I am really excited to have been invited to join such a talented group. I know you will be inspired by our hops.

The challenge involves selecting three boxes in a row in any direction to create a project. I chose to create an easel card because I love fun fold cards, to use Designer Series Paper and to make it a birthday card. So this is what I came up with.

Bundle Bonus Tutorials

Welcome to my blog. I hope you have noticed that I am making a big effort to post more often here, however, sometimes, life does get in the way!

Today, I wanted to share with you some information about a global group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators with whom I collaborate to put together (mostly monthly) tutorials with a particular theme (eg bundles, fun folds, easy cards etc). Each theme has a sub-group of these demonstrators who participate.

The Bundle Bonus Group decides on a Bundle of products each month, which is currently available. This month, the bundle is the Cheerful Daisies Bundle. Here is a sneak peek of the projects in the tutorial. As you can see, their are 15 projects in the tutorial, which will be emailed to you as a pdf when you purchase the bundle from me.

BundleBonusTutorialSneakPeekJune2023

Below is the design I contributed to the tutorial. It uses Boho Blue and Copper Clay (2 of the new In-Colors) and the beautiful DSP, Fresh as a Daisy, (on sale until the end of June) as well as the Painted Texture Embossing Folder.

Below is an Image of the Cheerful Daisies Bundle.

Cheerful Daisy Bundle

If you wish to purchase the bundle from me, click on the Cheerful Daisy Bundle pic above and you will be taken to my online store. There you need to click on SIGN IN at the top right of the screen. Then you can sign in, if you already have an account, or you can create an account if you don’t. Finally, just place your order, and it will be shipped directly to your door.

Once you have placed your order, send me a message with your email and I will send you the pdf tutorial. If your order is less than $250, please use this month’s Host Code when prompted. It is shown on the sidebar on the right of my blog- this month it is 3ZH9UNVT. I will then send you a little something extra.

I hope you are inspired by my card. I’d love to know what you think!

Thanks for stopping by.
