Stamp N Hop Casing the Catalogue







Welcome to the Stamp N Hop Blog Hop, you may of joined me from Anastasia's post or maybe you started here!  You're very welcome however you arrived.

This month with Stamp N Hop we are casing the Annual  Catalogue.

To CASE is great for when you're stuck for an idea, you know you want some crafting time but nothings popping into your mind!

C A S E  Copy and share everything.

Look at some cards in the catalogue or on Pinterest and  case them
It's meant to work as inspiration, so you may copy the layout, the colour, the technique.  Use a different stamp set, sentiment, ribbon or DSP.   Your card will look different because your be changing it up.  If you copy exactly you should name the persone you cased as the designer.


I've cased the following card, keeping it as a Christmas card!


I've used the same colour, Garden Green and layout but a different embossing folder, stamp set, ribbon and emblishment.



Peaceful Noel has been used just for the sentiment.






I've never cased the catalogue before but I really enjoyed it and it made me really look at the cards and projects in the catalogue.

Hope you liked this Christmas card why not try casing a card in the catalogue yourself?

Today I'm showing you the swaps I made for the ladies at Onstage in Birmingham.  If you don't know what Onstage is read on...  As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator you get the chance to attend a large event twice a year, in April and November.  At this event we get to meet lot's of other Demonstrators, we craft and there is always a new product release, so we get a peek at new items.  We also receive free gifts, lunch and lots of inspiration.


On these day's we get the opportunity to swap card front's or 3D items with each other.  I have made items for swapping and I've also made some special items for the ladies who are in the same team as me.  The point of this is to break the ice and chat to people and also to take home lot's of inspiration.

I've made small gift containers.




Then I made a Christmas bag, great for Christmas dinner table treat.



I've made a video to show you how easy they are to make.




Use a 6 x 6" piece of paper, score at 2 and 4" turn and score at 2 and 4" again.  Watch the video above for more scoring and cutting instructions.
Hope you enjoyed watching the video, if you're tempted to join Stampin' Up I would love you to be on my team.  Please contact me if you have any questions.

Kre8tors November Blog Hop Birthday's





Welcome to this months Kre8tor's Blog Hop.  

We are a group of Independent Stampin' Up Demonstrators who get together once a month to create with a theme.  Our theme this month is birthdays.

You may of started at my blog post or you may of hopped from  Jan Musselman's post either way you are always welcome.

I've used the Sea of Textures bundle for my card today.  I love this set but I've not used it recently as I've been making Christmas Cards!


This is quite a simple card to make but looks impressive.





This was my second colour combo and my favourite.






The first card although still nice was not bold enough for me, so after filming for my video I redid it, do you ever do this?
