Piece of Cake Wedding Card

Hello and welcome to the January Ink.Stamp.Share blog hop. This is my first time hopping with this group of talented crafters and I am excited to be part of it. This month theme is just to show you anything from the Spring/Summer catalogue.

Despite the fact I made this card at "five minutes to twelve" I am very pleased with it. I love the coastal cabana colour and I think it works just great with the whisper white and Blushing Bride. 

For the background, I used the new Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions embossing folder. Wow, what a pretty effect. Do you like it too? 
The sentiment is stamped, cut out with a circular punch and then cut some more with scissors. I like how it leaves soft sides.

Even though this card has only two colours, there are many ways how to interchange them. What would be your take? Below is the full list of items I used for the project. They are a click away...

Amazing Life

Hello and welcome to the first ever Stamping Around the World blog hop. We are a bunch of demonstrators from, yes, you guessed it, around the world and, together, we do two things. 

Thing one - we create monthly tutorial bundles. It's a compilation of several detailed tutorials prepared by us, using different products for diversity. In the UK the bundle is valued £11 and anyone can purchase it here or by following a link on the right side of my blog. 
Or one can get this bundle for FREE with a qualifying order. The amount spent depends on the country of residence. In the UK it is £46. And you what else one gets for this? Free Sale-a-bration product!

That brings me to the second thing that we do and that is this blog hop. It compliments the bundle by showing more projects made from the featured products. My project in the bundle is showing Amazing Life stamp set. So here are two additional simple cards made with the same set.

I love all the colours on the first card. The letters are coloured in with stampin' blends and they match the ribbons perfectly. Shop with me and get the ribbons for free as they are from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue. The second card is also using a Sale-a-Bration item, the beautiful botanical designer series paper. It complements beautifully Gingham Gala Suite from the new Spring/Summer catalogue.

Do you like these cards? Get your supplies from the list below and have a go at them. I'd love to see your takes.
But before you do that scroll to the very bottom of this post to see the links to the other posts in this blog. Enjoy!

Kre8tors Blog Hop - Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Hello and welcome to the Kre8tors first blog hop of this year. This month we played a bit of tic-tac-toe, which is a fun way to decide what we would use in our projects. 

I was thrilled to see a 3D item field as I just gotten a pack of gorgeous foil sheets that, I thought, would be perfect to make a gift bag from. So that's what I did. 

I use the gift bag punch board. I have one for some time but I didn't use it much so I thought, what a perfect opportunity to take it out of the drawer. The board offers 3 different bag sizes - small, medium and large. I decided to make the medium size. The finished box measures 8cm x 5cm x 18.5cm (3 1/8" x 2" x 7 1/4"). The paper size needed is 11" x 7 1/4". For the fastening, I used a cord measuring about 50cm (approx 20") and sequin trims are 25cm (approx 10").

Here is a video showing how I made this bag. Have a go at it with me.

If you'd like to purchase any of the supplis from the list don't forget for every £45 spent you can choose an item from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue.  It will also give you a FREE pdf tutorial bundle of ten different projects!
