July Blog Hop - Travel theme

I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop, featuring projects that are travel or scrapbook related. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you!  You may have arrived from Shirley's blog and the lovely projects she shared!

You are currently visiting me here in Norfolk, UK but by the time this hop goes live, I will be on my way to the airport, so this theme has very appropriate timing !




My house and cat sitter was booked well over 18-months ago, as soon as the trip was announced and moved in last night whilst we enjoy our bucket-list holiday of a lifetime, having earned my first Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip, an Alaskan Cruise.  

I'm not a 'big' scrapbooker but this is certainly a trip that will have an album all to itself, saving our wonderful memories in  scrapbook and memory making pages.

When I think of travel and holidays, I think cocktails !!!!  Is that such a bad thing ?  So, with that in mind, here is my card today.

Here I have used the Colourful Seasons #143726 which has a matching Die-set called Seasonal Layer #143751.  I love the versatility of this set, like it says, for every season of the year.
My colours today are Night of Navy, Bermuda Bay, Flirty Flamingo and So Saffron.  The Hardwood background stamp #133032 (W) #133035 provide the decking, possibly on a cruise ship ?

I hope you are enjoying your 'hop' today and thanks for stopping by.  We really appreciate your comments if you coul add below, to let us know what you think of our projects today.

Home Decor SU Style Blog Hop - July 2018


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

I feel it's been one of those months when, as hard as I cross off one item on my 'to-do' list, another handful are being added.  So today we have a different project than I planned but that'll be ready by next months I'm sure.

Today's project is one I have been busy creating my 'Parliament' of Owls who will be making a very special trip very soon.      
They were all created using the beautiful Designer Series Papers from Share What You love Suite #146926 and Black 1/2" Satin Ribbon #146280.
They are made from a variety of circles dies punches or fussy cut ! 

I was amazed to be able to find 2019 calendar tabs in the Spring this year.  unheard of as they are nowhere to be seen in the shops.

I hope you have been inspired by my post, which have been fun to make and instructions will be shared once I've recovered from this vacation and can easily be changed to any theme.



Enjoy the rest of your 'hop' around the globe today by clicking  on the next name on the list and see the wonderful creations they have to share with you.

COLOUR COMBO BLOG HOP - July 2018

Hi and welcome back for another hop around the globe with Stampin' Up! Demos round the world, for our next Colour Combo challenge.

For my project today, I wanted to get messy with some inking techniques to create a background.  

I started by tapping edge of Petal Pink, Balmy Blue and Night of Navy over a laminated grid sheet.

Next, I spritzed with a fine mist of water and let the water-based ink colours start to move around the surface.
Smooch a piece of Thick Whisper White card in the inks, making sure to catch all over the card.  Allow to dry fully before attaching to Night of Navy card base.

Sentiment has been stamped in Night of Navy ink and Die-cut using Stitched Shaped Framelits #145372.  Edges sponged with Petal Pink ink #147108.

The decorative border was created punching a strip of Night of Navy card using Decorative Ribbon Border punch #143721Tabs were made from scraps of Petal Pink, Balmy Blue and Night of Navy card and tucked under the sentiment.  
Finally a 'bit of bling' was added with some Clear Rhinestone Gems #144220.


I hope you have enjoyed my little inky smooch today  and enjoy hopping round the globe clicking on links below.  Click on the 'next' button below to hop to Sue and see what she has created for you today.
