Crazy Crafters and Pootlers Blog Hop December 2015 - Occasions Catalogue Sneak Peek



Welcome to the Crazy Crafters & Pootlers Blog Hop for December. 

That's right, this month the Crazy Crafters and Poolters have combined to create an International Blog Hop! How exciting is it that we have the famous Pootles - Sam Hammond Donald and her team playing together with us. Sam is a truly amazing and very talented lady with a following all around the world.

Our Theme is "One" to show that with a limited amount of product you can still create amazing projects, our challenge is for us to only only use a combination of One Ink, One Punch OR Thinlet Die, One Stamp Set, One Designer Series Paper, One Cardstock. Here is my completed project:



I decided to dress up my Treat Box with a "Happy Birthday Balloon", I used a masking technique for the sentiment to fit, but you could just as easily choose not to add this and just have you lovely Treat Box - after all here is what is inside!


Products used from 2016 Occasions Catalogue:

Balloon Bouquet Punch
Balloon Celebration Stamp Set
It's My Party Designer Series Paper
Basic Black/Mint Macaron Baker's Twine


I hope you have found inspiration from my project. I would love to update you when I create a post!

All Star Tutorial Blog Hop

Not only is today the monthly All Star Blog Hop, but it is also the launch day of Sale-A-Bration and the Mini Catalogue, wow what a busy day!

Do you ever get caught up in the detail, and before you know it hours have past and all you really wanted was a quick card? That is me all to often,but today card came together quickly and it's perfect for a masculine birthday event too!

Who would have thought with just a strip of Birthday Bonanza Designer Series paper, a sentiment from Bonanza Buddies (from the new Mini Catalogue) you could have a gorgeously masculine card in a jiffy!

I raised card front layer using some corrugated embossed cardstock for a little mow impact, the DSP is adhered directly to the card base, here's the side view


Lastly add some sequins to celebrate the happy day = card is complete!


Yes, it's a simple design, but less can be more on some days, hahaha (I don't have many of those days when it comes to card making).

Say it with Stars... Happy Birthday

I've had a crafty orientated day today in between weekend household chores, after delivering catalogues, and in between multiple loads of washing & cooking I played with part of my So Many Stars bundle..... being the Stitched Stars dies (23 in the set, spoiilt for choice, woot!)

These dies were perfect for the Global Design Project theme this week:


I started by stamping my birthday sentiment, then placed 3 of the star dies (the 3 smaller detailed stars) in position and ran through the Big Shot, then re-positioned and worked by way along the edge of the card, cutting 7 in total - perfect for a rainbow of colour.


I used 2 of the stitched stars to cut the colours, then placed them behind the card front and popped up on dimensionals, lastly mounting the card front on a Thick Whisper White card base, and there you have it, a fun Children's birthday card!

Delicate Lace with Magnolia Lane

Well hello Saturday! What a long week that was, so happy to creative today, it feels like it's been ages! To get me in the mood I went to my favourite challenge blogs for some inspiration, and I chose this sketch:


For today's creation I've mixed some old with the new - Delicate Lace edge dies with Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper. I decided to turn the sketch on the side, it seemed to show of the lovely flowers better.



This DSP is just gorgeous, a mix of floral and stripes all using a beautiful colour palette - yes, it did have me with pink, but honestly if you replaced pink with a purple or yellow it would still be an amazing DSP.




Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project. Stay tuned for more inspiration and tips this month. If you live in Australia and don't already have a demonstrator I'd love love to be yours.
