Continuing with sharing projects from our recent Demonstrator meeting... today I'm featuring a project designed by Lyndi. I love these cute little critters from the Peekaboo Farm stamp set. This set features five different animals that peek out from behind this wall. Or you could have them peeking out from behind some other object as well. Lyndi's project is actually a small gift box, using one of our Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes. These boxes are … [Read more...] about Peekaboo!

After 18+ months, most my 24-7Inkspiration team of demonstrators got together for our very first in person event. All during Covid, we were meeting via Zoom calls and FB Lives. It was absolutely wonderful to see people in person again and be able to craft together. Patricia did an amazing job hosting all of us with a lovely lunch. At the event, we had what's called a shoebox swap. Everyone designs a card/project and brings the supplies for … [Read more...] about Floating Strips
Happy Friday! Today's card uses the Sweet Symmetry Suite of products. This stamp set and paper contains big, bold images that look fabulous in bright colors. The stamp set in this Suite was designed very thoughtfully. All of the flower pieces are separate - the flowers, leaves, and stem. This makes it so much easier to create your flower in a variety of colors. The stamp set has a coordinating punch rather than a die set so I did have to … [Read more...] about Hey Friend!
Welcome to our NEW AT SU! Blog hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are Hoppin’ with creative paper crafting ideas to share with you. Today we are showcasing products featuring the beautiful pattern paper from the Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog. For the past couple years, I've accumulated a number of succulent plants in my house and yard. One of the things I love about them is that they tend to be … [Read more...] about New At SU-Bloom Where You’re Planted
Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing my final project (for now) using the Floral Square dies. I had an older shadowbox frame in my living room and I decided it was time to change it out. This combines both the subtle background plus a pop of color. The yellow and the red match my living room decor and paint colors. It really is a simple looking project, but I like the clean look. And when I tire of it, I can easily replace it. Do you … [Read more...] about Framed Floral Squares
I'm back today with another card using the Floral Squares dies again. This time I added lots of color and I'm using one of the pattern papers that is on sale this month. I found a similar design for this card online, but I added the layer of pattern paper to add a bright punch of color to the card. Plus I changed the design slightly. I colored my Opal Rounds with my light Flirty Flamingo Blend marker to give them a hint of pink. We … [Read more...] about Floral Squares In Color
Today I'm sharing another project using the Turtle Friends bundle. This is the card that was sent out to customers that placed an order or subscribed to Paper Pumpkin during the month of May. I'm sure there's no such thing as pink turtles, and definitely not pink turtles with cheetah-print shells. But, I still think she's pretty cute. The shell is from our pattern paper and glued right on top of the stamped shell. Paper piecing is a fun idea … [Read more...] about May Thank You
I love the way our stamped images look cut out, but I don't always love to cut them out with scissors. Hand cutting it with scissors can take so much time. One of my favorite tools that I use ALL the time is our die cut machine. And even better, we have two different machines to choose from. We have our full size machine, perfect for die cutting, embossing, etc. And, we have a brand new Mini machine. The Mini machine looks just like the … [Read more...] about Do You Die Cut?
