Stamptastic Friends May 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to this Month’s Blog Hop with Stamptastic Friends. Our theme this month is Masculine Makes. Earlier this year my husband decided to go sea fishing with his dad and brother in May. So when I saw the theme for this month’s blog hop I knew that I wanted to make a project using products from the Come Sail Away Suite. This week I was lucky to receive an email from my lovely friend Linda […]

Colour Combo May 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Colour Combo Blog Hop. The colours this month are Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake and Gorgeous Grape. When I saw these colours I immediately thought of flowers as most of the colours in my garden are purple. With this in mind I decided to use one of our retiring stamp sets this month and chose the Vibrant Vases stamp set. I started by stamping the vases and flower outlines using Crumb Cake […]

Stamp ‘N Hop May 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Stamp ‘N Hop The theme this month is Saying Goodbye to our 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue. One of my favourite products that was in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue was the Country Floral 3D embossing folder. It was first introduced as a Sale-a-bration product which then went into the Annual Catalogue. The reason why it is a favourite is that you can dry emboss with it and either leave it as it is […]

Ink & Share April 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Ink & Share Blog Hop This month’s theme is New Beginnings or Spring I was struggling with this month’s theme and whilst looking through some photographs I found three from when my husband changed our back garden from grass and flowerbeds to paving and raised flower beds. I remember taking these photographs just after he had started extending the decking and of course our two dogs just had to give him […]

Stamptastic Friends April 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to this Month’s Blog Hop with Stamptastic Friends. Our theme this month is a Colour Challenge and for a change we could choose our own three colours. As everyone knows my favourite all time Stampin’ Up! colour is Melon Mambo but as I had just bought the Last a Lifetime bundle and my daughter is getting married, I thought I would try out a couple of different colour ways. I had already made a […]

Stampin Dreams April 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Stampin Dreams Blog Hop. The theme this month is Birthdays I decided to do some No Stampin Cards which would make a useful kit to send out to customers and friends so that they could have a go themselves. I started by cutting a 6×6″ piece of Best Dressed Designer Series Paper into three pieces before mounting them on to three mat layers and a card base. Then I die cut […]

Scrapbooking Global April 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop. I love the theme this month as it means I can continue scrapbooking my old family photographs and of course add some family history notes to it later. It took me a little while to choose which photographs I could use. Then I had to choose the Designer Series Paper and layout to use. I did cheat and look at the layouts in the Scrapbooking Global Facebook […]

Kre8tors April 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to April’s Kre8tors Blog Hop The theme this month is Spring. As I have recently been making a few cards using flowers I decided to go for an old favourite of mine and use the Fable Friends stamp set. I find that I tend to always use the rabbit stamp from this set so this was the ideal chance to use the other stamp sets in the set. I started by cutting three 10 […]

Colour Combo April 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Colour Combo Blog Hop. For my project this month I decided to use a technique that was the idea of Bruno Bertucci. It is called the Scrappy Strip Technique and is an ideal way of making cards from scraps. I decided to use the technique on 10cm x 10cm cards as I had already made some A6 birthday cards using this technique and wanted some smaller Thank you cards. Then I […]

Stamp ‘N Hop April 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop. The theme this month is CASE from pInterest. Like many crafters I use pInterest to find ideas for cards, scrapbook layout and other ideas around the home and garden. When I saw this month’s theme I though Oh good I can find something to CASE. Then when it came to it I was undecided what card I would CASE as there were so many to choose. […]
