Home Decor SU Style Blog Hop June 2018

I'm really excited to join in with this 'first' Home D├ęcor Blog Hop today, with fellow Demonstrators globally sharing their creative projects.

Recently, I organised a Tutorial Share with members of my Stampin' Up! Team who wanted to participate.  We were all using the beautiful products in the Share What You Love suite.
This is my finished project showing using lots of products from the Share What You Love suite.  Unfortunately their is glare on the glass so I'm sharing the photo before it went in the frame.
The Share What You Love Designer Series Paper #146926 will certainly be a best seller I'm sure, and the fact it is here for 12-months of the Annual Catalogue, is wonderful.  I'm sure I will never get tired of it.  Take a look in the Annual Catalogue on pages 176-178.

The background use a whole sheet of the beautiful Designer Series Paper.  I tried to use a fairly neutral pattern rather than one of the gorgeous 'busy' patterns, so that it didn't detract from the mini artwork pieces.

It's hard to see detail in the overall view so I have split into 3 rows.
The first piece has been stamped using an image from the Love What You Do stamp set #148042. Flowers were cut by hand from the Designer Series Paper and tiny Basic Pearl Jewels #144219.  The middle piece features a metallic floral embellishment from Share What You Love Embellishment Kit #146928 and the embossing on the right uses the Lovely Floral Textured Embossing Folder #148048.
The stamp in the centre here was available as a Limited Edition for one month but do hope they bring it back !  Did you see the gorgeous Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Velvet Ribbon #147016 ?
More Textured Embossing here, with a Share What You Love Artisan Pearl #146927, in 5 pastel colours which compliment this suite.  The end panel features one of the Pearlised Doilies #146936.  To make it fit onto my panel here, I have cut away the outer layer - there are so many different variations with these, it's amazing.

I'm now excitedly waiting Mr UPS to arrive with my next exciting order of customers and my orders.  Creative 'play time' pencilled in for the weekend, ready to show off some more gorgeous new products.

I hope you have been inspired by my post.  I had lots of fun making and have more frame ideas in the planning stage.  We do really appreciate reading your lovely comments on our posts if you have time to add at the bottom of this post.

COLOUR COMBO BLOG HOP - June 2018


Welcome back to another Colour Combo Hop.  Aren't these colours just gorgeous ?  You join us today for a another hop around the globe with fellow Demonstrators, joining me Sandra here in Norfolk, UK.


I was soooooooo pleased to see my favourite Blackberry Bliss as a 'returning' colour this year,  plus having still kept a small stash when it retired a few years ago, was able to start using straight away !
Having seen one of our new Designer Series Papers in use on a project, it reminded me of the Playful Backgrounds stamp set #141920.  This set has been in previous catalogues a while but has sadly been a bit neglected lately.  Thinking outside the box, I thought it might work well with this colour combination.
All of my cards today were super quick to create and feature all three colours in the colour combo above, just in a different order!  I started cutting and scoring base card in each of the colour card, Petal Pink #147009, Crumb Cake #121685 and Blackberry Bliss #133682.  The mat layers in each colour of card were cut at 12.8cm x 8.5cm.


The white layers were cut to 12.3 x 8cm and stamped randomly with Petal Pink #147108, Crumb Cake #147116 and Blackberry Bliss #147092 ink pads. and stuck to the middle mat layers.  This double layer was attached to the centre of each base card.
Lastly, I cut TWO of each colour card using the Happy Birthday Thinlits Dies #143700.  Two different colours were placed on each blank card, making sure the top layer was the 3rd colour in the combo.  Two layers of thinlits were attached together using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen #138309 and then onto centre of card.
Small circles were punched from Silver Glimmer Paper #146960.  These were attached to the dot on the 'i' in Birthday and a stack of 3 in the corner.  This is a great tip for using up some of those offcuts of Silver Glimmer we hang on to and a great substitute for Rhinestone Gems when you run out !

I hope you have enjoyed my post today and click to visit Sue and continue along your hop.

Kre8tors Blog Hop - ***NEW*** Annual Catalogue

Today I'm back with my fellow Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators, sharing our creativity globally through our Kre8tors Blog Hop group. 

Our theme this month is our fabulous ***NEW*** Annual Catalogue.  One of the perks of being an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is being able to see all the new catalogues before they are released to customers.  Those of us who attended Stampin' Up! On Stage Convention in April, were able to pre-order a limited selection of products being released early, plus a further selection of pre-order products during May.  I have already fallen in love with soooooo many new products, it's just as well its here for the next 12-months. 

For todays 'hop' I decided to use my most recent Little Elephant Bundle #148338(W) #148340 (C) which only arrived on Friday !
I've also fallen in love with two brand NEW colours, Soft Seam Foam and Gray Granite.  Here I've added with some Powder Pink from last years In-Colours. 
This cute little card would be ideal for accompanying a baby girl gift.
Soft Sea Foam is my favourite new colour !!  It is such a pale, delicate shade of green, this photo probably doesn't do it justice.
This is a Gray Granite base card with Soft Sea Foam mat layer and Whisper White topper that has been embossed using Quilt Top Embossing Folder #144687.

I'm now excitedly waiting on my new ink pads arriving Monday to have some more creative 'play time' next week and show off some more gorgeous new products.

I hope you have been inspired by these products and projects I've shared with you today.  We do really appreciate reading your lovely comments on our posts.

TEAM SHOEBOX SWAP

Today was our bi-monthly team get together for a 'shoebox' swap.

Due to other family commitments, we had a smaller group than usual but this meant that once we had created each others swaps and those for those joining in by post, we had time to have 'creative play-time' using new goodies that had arrived yesterday !!

It's always lovely catching up with members of the team, sharing our love of crafting.  We had lots of fun and enjoyed creating another project I will be sharing with you on Monday.
For my swap, I waited to create until my delivery box arrived yesterday, but having my sketched design already planned.  I have used the cute Little Elephant bundle #148338(W) #148340(C).  Purchasing together as a bundle, there is a 10% saving.


My card was made using a Soft Sea Foam base which is a new colour.  The mat layer is Mossy Meadow, an old favourite of mine which I was pleased to see returning too.  The top Whisper White layer has been embossed using Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #144687.

The hearts and elephants have been stamped with Mossy Meadow ink.  I love that there is a coordinating punch for the elephants, then the hearts were 'fussy-cut' by hand and raised onto Stampin' Dimensionals #104430 and Mini Stampin' Dimensionals #144108.  I attached strings of Whisper White Solid Bakers Twine #124262 to make them look like balloons.

Do you already have a long Wish List from the new catalogue ? What better reason to find out more.  The majority of Demonstrators join, purely to never pay full price for their crafting products, enjoying a discount of 20%-25%.

If you are looking for a Demonstrator, or would like to know more about joining my team and earning discounts yourself, I would be more than happy to help.  Please visit my 24/7 online shop following the link below or contact me on the details below.
