Stamp N’ Hop Sale-A- Bration Blog Hop

Posted on

Welcome to the monthly Stamp N’ Blog Hop.  This month’s theme is all about Sale-A-Bration!!!!

I’ve chosen to focus on the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper that you can get for FREE with a $50 purchase!  There are three things about this paper that I want to tell you about.  First, the paper can be punched out using the new Butterfly Duet Punch.  Second, the paper is double sided with colorful butterflies and nature on one side and black and white patterns or butterflies on the other.  I’ve chosen to punch out black and white butterflies and color them with the coordinating color to make them match my scrapbook page.

I’ve also used a new stamp set called Amazing Life.  I love the big sentiments in it.  My scrapbook page is with my daughter and her boyfriend.  Aren’t they cute?

Once again, thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope that you have found inspiration to create your own project.  Please click on the arrow below to hop with the rest of the group.  Don’t forge to leave a little love when visiting.


Global Stamping Friends Seasonal Fun

Posted on

Welcome to this month’s Global Stamping Friends bloghop where Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world get together once a month and create to inspire you!  This month’s theme is Seasonal Fun!

I’ve decided to try this awesome box that opens up to display multiple little trays for goodies! It was so fun to watch it all come together. I watched this tutorial from Dawn Griffith who’s instructions are the best! Click the link HERE to watch her tutorial.

Isn’t it beautiful? It’s such a fun way to give a gift (or 4!). I’ve made this for a good friend of mine.

I hope you give it a try with your favorite designer series paper. Thank you for hopping along with us.  You are visiting Jenn Charles with BFF Stampers.  Next up in the hop is Lisa Ann Bernard.

Casing the Catty-Stamp N’ Hop

Posted on

Hi Friends!  Thank for stopping by my blog.  You’re visiting Jenn Charles @ BFF Stampers.  Once again the Stamp N’ Hop group is getting together for a blog hop and this time it’s to CASE the Catty.  CASE means Copy and Share with Everyone!  We are choosing to CASE from the Annual Catalog to show it some love before the Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration start right after the New Year!  This year has gone by so fast!

One of my old favorites is the Daisy Delight Stamp Set and Daisy Punch.  It’s on page 123 of the Annual Catalog.  I love how Stampin’ Up! has provided “You Can Make It” catagories in our catalog.  It makes picking and choosing exactly what we need for a project, so much easier!  I’m making a set of 10 thank you notecards using our Subtles color family.

I hadn’t used all of the new colors from the Subtles yet and when I tried Balmy Blue, I fell in love!!!  I didn’t think I would like it because I was sad to see Marina Mist go.  Have you ever not liked something just because you were sad about the change?  We just moved and I kept complaining about our new house because I didn’t want to move in the first place.  I LOVED our old house.  But we rent and sometimes, people want their houses back for unforeseen reasons.  So we found another house to rent and we’ve been here a month and I can’t find anything to complain about!  Sometimes you just have to get over the change.  So regarding that, Balmy Blue is gorgeous!  LOL.

Thanks for hopping by.

Your BFF,

Next up in the blog hop is Eva Pottsova.


Stampin’ Up!’s 30 Year Anniversary

Posted on

As you may have guessed, Stampin’ Up! is celebrating it’s 30th year of being in business. In fact, this week, demonstrators from around the world are all gathering together in Florida to celebrate!  It’s all because one woman never gave up on her dreams.  Her name is Shelli Gardner and she’s the co-founder of Stampin’ Up!  This company started in her home!  Because of her love of papercrafting, I get to make money, set my own hours and do what I love to do which is watch others enjoy it too.

Kylie’s challenge this month was to make a thank you card for Shelli telling her how much we appreciate her ambition and faith in starting this company.  I have so many friends I never would have met if it wasn’t for Stampin’ Up!  So here’s my card I’ll be sending out to Shelli.

I got a little out of my comfort zone on this card.  It has a lot of texture and “mess” as I would call it, but I kept thinking WWSD?  What would Shelli Do!?  She loves texture and she believes, more is better.  Once I got started I couldn’t stop!  I used the stamp set, All Things Thanks because as soon as I decided to make this card the phrase, Thanks for that thing you did was running through my mind.  It’s a perfect sentiment for what I want to tell Shelli.

Tip: You can color Rhinestones with Sharpie markers to make whatever color you need.

If you’d like to check out cards that other demonstrators made for Shelli then follow this link to Kylie’s blog.

The idea for this card came from Mojo Monday Sketches.  You can click on the photo below to play along.

Thanks for visiting me today.  I hope you were inspired to send a thank you card today to someone that has made a difference in your life.

Your BFF,

Here’s a list of everything I used on today’s card.
