New Catalog Debut / Favorites

5 comments
Hello Friends!    


Welcome to the Creative Circle Design Team. 

Firstly I confess that I am not the greatest blogger. I was very ill this month battling a cold which lead to two episodes of hospital visits. 

The walk-in doctor misdiagnosed the symptom and prescribed antibiotics which made me very ill and landed in the hospital twice.

Not too scare you, but listen to your body. If you are not better in 3 days, and revisit your GP.



I finally had a chance to play with new products when I was feeling better. My new catalog debute is using the Sea of Textures. I have a collection of sea life stamps, and when I saw this set, I knew this was the first set to get.

I am going to keep this post short but invite you to my business facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/lizhollowaydesign/for a recap on how this card is made on Monday, June 11, 2018. This will be FB Live at 10:30 a.m. PST, plus FREE GIVEAWAY.

Hello Friends! 

It has been a long time coming, and I found a perfect solution to store our Stampin' Daubers. 


Today I present to you Stampin' Daubers Storage Case brought to you by me! The foam is perfectly edged and lined to hold all your daubers all in one place. 


This is the mini version that holds ALL THE COLORS except for the InColors. (I am working on another one to hold all the inColors).


The piercing foam mat is etched to hold 10 daubers for each collections. The template of all the colors are tucked underneath the protected plastic from being damaged and is labelled with the collection colors using a White Gel Pen.

Everyone must add this to your collections! Need one? For more information, please email me at liz.holloway@gmail.com. I will be happy to help you.

Saying Goodbye (retiring favorite)

5 comments
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 https://craftingwithprincesslisa.blogspot.com/. 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.





Recipe:

(1) 4-1/4" x 11" Thick Whisper White cs
(1) 3-3/4" x 5" Perfect Plum cs
(1) 3-5/8" x 4-7/8" Whisper White cs
1/2" thick washi tape
Watercolor paper

Elegant Eggplant marker

Versamark
Wisteria Wonder Classic Ink
Black Embossing Powder
Heat Tool

CCDT Blog Hop: Birds

6 comments
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.


ACCEPTING NEW APPLICATIONS

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.

CARD SHARE

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.


GIVEAWAY

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.
