Saying Goodbye (retiring favorite)

Hello Friends!    

Welcome to the Creative Circle monthly blog hop. It has been awhile since I posted as I was away during the month of April scouting around China/Hong Kong/Japan. It is tough getting back, not just the time change. I now have an artist block. (sigh)

The month has gone by so quickly, and slowly getting back into routine. So much has happened in the Stampin' Up! world ... retired products/stamps, colors revamped, change of new style of ink pads, and so much more.

Before I get to all the changes, the Creative Circle has added another new member to the team. We welcome Lisa Eisner. She is a big fan of 3Ds like I am. Her website can be found here Welcome Lisa!

If you missed the Last Chance Products-Occasions, and Retiring Products List – Annual Catalog lists, be sure to click on the links underlined. All retired products and stamps will end May 31, 2018.

This month's hop is Saying Goodbye (retiring favorite). I have lots of retiring favorites and sad to see them go, but yet excited to see new products out. My most sadness is the Birthday Blooms stamp. This stamp is so versatile. The outlined set that you can color with any colors you wish. 

Let me show you what I did with the Birthday Blooms set together with the Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, Wild Wasabi and Gumball Green Classic Inks.

CCDT Blog Hop: Birds

Hello Friends!    
Welcome to another Creative Circle Design Team Blog Hop. This month's theme is all about birds. It's a 3D project with the team and I provided this Bird House template for the team to see what they came up with.


I am looking for new creative demonstrators. If you are that person, come join the Creative Circle Design Team, I am accepting applications. Submit a couple of your designs, your blog and whether you own a electronic cutter to me.

The birds are from the Petal Pallette Memories and More kit. They were leftovers from my tri-fold mini album and added to the front of the 3D bird house. I added three pegs under each opening to make it look like posts for the birds to sit on.

This cute bird house can suspend on it own holding eight (8) cards and envelopes. You are probably wondering where.
The roof actually lifts off (not shown) to hold eight (8) cards and envelopes. The roof and the house are held be strong magnets to hold them together, allowing it to suspend in the air.


The cards I made for the bird house is using the Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers and the Flying Home stamp set which is available until the end of the month.


The complete size of the bird house is 4"(w) x 9"(h) x  7-1/4"(d). 

Isn't this too stinky cute! A great for gift for bird lovers. I am giving away this pattern to three (3) lucky winners. If you want a chance to win a copy of this design, enter a comment with the hashtag #LHDContest. For extra wins, share this post with your friends. 

The winners will be announced on May 3.

Hello Friends! 

Welcome to my blog. Another short and sweet post as I am travelling.

I have been creating a lot of thank you cards and birthday cards as I use these the most.

So in love with layout. Clean and simple. I really didn't have to do much. No coloring just piecing and stamping the sentiment.

Springtime Foil - Love

No comments
Hello Friends!    

Welcome to Kylie Bertucci's March Blog Highlights. This is my first time blogging with this group and I am grateful for the invite.

Kylie is an Australian Demo and she invites demonstrators from all around the world to take part in my international blog highlights once a month and I am happy to part-take in this great hop. This month's theme is LOVE.

Love card is the easiest card to make. Every needs one whether you are creating an anniversary, wedding or even a birthday theme. With the right tools, you really don't have to think too much. 

For my card share I have been playing around with the Springtime Foils paper and the Basket Weave Dynamic Embossing Folder, together with the Stampin' Blends. I actually showed this tutorial on my private client's site (Canadian Papercrafter Cards Scrapbook).

CCDT Blog Hop - Spring Fling

Hello Crafty Friends!   
I can't believe how time flies and the next thing you know the month is over. As we head into March, the birds are chirping, flowers are blooming and everything about nature is growing. I love spring! Everything is bright and cheery!

Welcome to today's CCDT Blog - Spring Fling. 

What is CCDT stands for?

CCDT is Creative Circle Design Team. We are a group of demonstrators that love to design using Stampin' Up! products and we hop monthly on the 1st Thursday of the month. Always consistent, and always fun to hop. 

New to my blog?

If you are new to my blog, welcome. I am a Canadian Independent Demonstrator and I love designing 3Ds to coordinate with my cards. If you live in Canada, come join the Canadian Papercraft Cards Scrapbook FB group. There will be a couple of questions for you to answer.

Most of the time, my mojos and inspirations are based on Stampin' Up! stamp sets. For instance, Blossoming Basket Bundle. It comes with Blossoming Basket Stamp Set and the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. You can get these from the SAB #2 FREE when you purchase $120 of products and that is how the flower kiosk came about.

Blog Share

I have been wanting to do a flower kiosk for awhile and this was a perfect timing.
When building this I used the Dynamic Basket Weave on both side of the cart, and sponged the edges with Smoky Slate ink. The Blossoming Basket full of flowers are also used in the decorating of the kiosk.
I stamped the Blossoming Basket in Mementum Ink and colored them with my blends. I can tell you that I did not fussy cut all the blooms, but I created an SVG file to cut the outlines and the inset with my electronic cutter. I also have one for the butterfly too. Then the flowers are colored with Stampin' Blends.
I created the wheels and stamped them in Hardwood stamp and Soft Suede Ink. Then sponged in Soft Suede ink to give some dimensions.
The awning pivots so that you can retrieve your cards out of the cart. The cart can hold about 10 cards and envelopes.


Before I do the giveaway, I want to congratulate to the last month's winners who won the Eggstoardinary project. 

The numbers were randomly picked by Please PM and I will give the codes for this file.

Winners are:
9. Sherry
12. Cari Jewett
13. LulueA


I have the design part all layed out and still need to do a how to video. All the components work well with Stampin' Up! and I hope to have this available soon.

In the meantime, to celebrate the blog hop, I am giving away the SVG patterns for the Kiosk Flower Cart, Blossoming Basket and Butterfly to THREE lucky winners. Leave a comment on my blog by 11:59 pm PT on April 16 for your chance to win. Winners will be chosen at random and announced on this blog on April 18, 2018. Add a hashtag #LHDContest.

To double your chances of winning, share this on your FB group, Pinterest, and Instagram.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
