Casing the Annual Catalog – Stamp ‘N Hop

Posted on

Welcome to this month’s Stamp N’ Hop! You are visiting Jenn Charles and we are casing the Annual Catalog!

Our catalog is full of beautiful projects from a very talented design team. I am honored to once again use it to get an idea. I’ve chosen to CASE a package instead of a card this time because I needed to wrap a gift.

Choosing an idea from the catalog helps get the creativity going when I’m stuck with no idea! I love how the designer made this cute package for her 5 year old grandson. Even though I do not own this stamp set, I can take this idea and adapt it using something I do have.

I’ve used the Bird Ballad Suite to decorate a Mini Shipping Box. These boxes are adorable. They are 4″x3″x2 5/8″. They sell 8 boxes for $5. Here is my take on the box.

You can see how I CASEd her design in many ways. I used the Mini Shipping Box and wrapped the designer series paper around the box and tied a bow using twine. I used a square accent made from vellum on the top to frame my bird collage. I stamped and fussy cut out leaves for the corners where she has her gifts.

I hope you liked my alternate of the project on Page 63 of the catalog.

Next up is Linda Handford. I know she is going to have something delightful to share with us.

Thanks for hopping along,
Your BFF,
Jenn


Introducing the 2019-2021 In-Colors!

Posted on

Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop for July! You are visiting Jenn Charles with BFF Stampers and I am delighted that we are showing samples of the new In-Colors.

I got the In-Colors in a pre-order in May. I’ve played a little with a few of them. We made a very pretty Mother’s Day Card and box using the Rococo Rose with the To A Wild Rose stamp set at a stamp camp. The blue of the Seaside Spray is replacing the hole in my heart from the retired Soft Sky. And today I’m using the Purple Posy. The card I made today is CASEd (Copy and Share Everything) directly from our annual catalog on page 39.

I love how our catalogs are full of inspiration and cards we can copy. The Good Morning Magnolia Bundle makes it so easy to create a beautiful card and the purple of the magnolia flower on the card above really caught my eye. I never noticed all of the magnolia trees in my neighborhood before I got this stamp set. I used the Purple Posy Blends to color this flower. The scalloped linen ribbon and the faceted dots come in all 5 of the 2019-2021 In-Colors.

I used some Wink of Stella on the flower also to help bling it up but it is hard to see in the picture.

Thank you for joining us on this month’s In-Color blog hop. I have a 2019-2021 Online In-Color Club starting this month! Details are below. Next up is Anastasia Radloff. I can’t wait to see what color she chose.

Favorites from the NEW Catalog – Stamp N’ Hop

Posted on

Yay! Today is the first full day of summer vacation and it has finally warmed up! Good thing to because we are planning a graduation party this weekend at the beach for my twin daughters. They graduated High School and I couldn’t be more proud! Although a cliché, the term, ‘it all flew by so fast’ was all I could think of during the graduation. It’s been an exhausting June so far but such a fun new chapter in their lives.

The new annual catalog is out and I’m in full crafting mode with fun stuff! The catalog is always such an inspiring work of art with so many beautiful stamp sets that it was hard to choose which one to start with, so I chose Magnolia Lane. This gorgeous flower and designer series paper has really won me over.

I made a fancy fold easel card for my buyers club.

I also used this set to make a scrapbook layout and this big bag I CASE’d from Sam Hammond. The tutorial is on her blog HERE.

I used the Hot Air Balloon Punch along with the die cuts in the Magnolia Memory Dies to make the paper pieced Magnolia flower.

Thank you for stopping by my blog during the Stamp ‘N Hop. Up next is Vickie Kello. I can’t wait to see what she has made. Click the arrow to go straight to her blog. Below will be a list of everything I used on my projects today. Please take note that if you do buy this stamp set, the Magnolia flower is very big and you will need either a Clear Block F or a Stamparatus to stamp with it.

Saying Goodbye is Hard to Do!

Hi and welcome to this month’s blog hop with Stamp n’ Blog Hop. You are visiting Jenn Charles. The theme this month is saying good-bye to our 2018-2019 annual catalog.

I chose the Coffee Cafe bundle. I love coffee and I will miss this set tremendously! My favorite thing to make with this Serbian a gift card holder. I give away so many cards to Starbucks that I should own stock in the company!


I used Pool Party and Bermuda Bay, two of my favorite colors. The designer series paper I’ve used here is leftover Painted Seasons. I hoarded it when it was available. It’s my favorite!

Thank you for hopping along with us today. Up next is Vicky Wright. See you next month.
