2018 Kre8tors BLOG HOP

I am so excited to welcome you to the first 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop, You are in for a treat as there are some very talented Independent Stampin Up Demonstrators waiting to inspire you!  This months theme is Occasions to celebrate the launch  of the 2018 Occasions catalogue  This catalogue is amazing, make sure to visit each of the links at the end of this post to see everyone's projects.

There are so many wonderful items to choose from in this catalogue, I went for two stamp sets for my first dip into blog hopping.  Picture Perfect Birthday and Birthday Wit


The envelope looks great with the candles stamped on the back.  I used a ruler to help keep straight.

I had so much fun making these items, a quick tip for you (if your making a few cards) is to get lots of your scrap paper and stamp the Fat Free, Carb Free and the candles etc over and over again in lots of different colours.  Then you can fussy cut them out and arrange on your card fronts.  I popped some of the words and one candle up with dimensionals.  The small pizza box is made using Bermuda Bay card stock.

I hope your were inspired, don't forget to look at all the other awesome projects made by the other demonstrators participating in this bog hop!
