September 17, 2020.....Inspiration Thursday.....LOTS of inspiration for you....

 Good Morning Stampers! 

Today is another Inspiration Thursday.  I am sharing projects from my stampers who are taking part in my September Creative Inspiration Calendar Challenge. 

At the end of August I sent all my girls a calendar that had a creative challenge for each day of the month and encouraged them to send me pics of their completed challenges, so I could post them to inspire others.

Well...Carole has certainly rose to the challenges!  She has completed EVERY daily challenge so far this month! Wow! 

She says that she likes the challenge calendar as it motivates her to get into her craft room and use her products for a few minutes every day.  

Now I will be honest with you, there were two challenges that I would have bet money that she would not do.....and she did them!  Call me impressed!  

Ok enough babble I sound like a proud mother are Carole's beautiful challenge projects: 

September 10- Make a card following a sketch: 

September 11- make a fun fold card

September 12- Make a Thinking of You card

September 13- Choose three Stampin' Up! colors to make a card

September 14- make a card using a die

September 15- make a scrapbook layout

September 16- clean your craft room and organize your stuff

Scrapbooking Global September Blog Hop- Celebrate!


Hello Everyone!  Welcome to our Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop for September!  

This month's theme is "Celebrate" - now this can be taken in many, many different directions.....however, I chose to Celebrate Christmas! 

And...since I just purchased a fabulous new scrapbook album that holds a whopping 80    8 1/2 x 11 pages I decided to make the first layout for that album!  

 Here is my layout: 

I started with an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of Whisper White thick cardstock.  

Next I die cut a sheet of Real Red cardstock with the Sweetest Time border dies.  I also cut an extra candy and candy cane.  

The rest of the sheet was used to create the photo mats:

1@ 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 
2 @ 3 1/4 x 3 1/4

The designer series paper was cut just 1/4 inch smaller and I opted for one of the smaller ones to be used as a journaling card.  

The greeting was cut from Garden Green cardstock with the Playful Alphabet dies. 

The ornaments and journal greeting were from the Christmas Gleaming Bundle. 

Here is a close up of the ornaments that are popped up on the layout:

And here is a close up of the journal greeting that is also cut out and popped up for some added dimension: 

And one last look.....

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy the rest of the hop!

Around The World On Wednesday September Blog Hop- Tag Team....

 Happy Wednesday Stampers!  

Welcome to another Around The World on Wednesday Blog Hop! 

Today I am hopping around the world, with some FABULOUS stampers and our theme this month is "Tag Team"  

Here is our challenge: 

Tag Team is the general theme for the September 2020 Blog Hop with a specific focus on creating TWO (2) coordinating projects! 

Another fun interpretation for you to get creative with... two coordinating projects is the only requirement. 

It's up to you to decide what they will be! You could go with something seasonal or even an occasion if you choose... or something as simple as color coordination are just a few ideas to get you thinking if you don't know where to begin. The sky's the limit with what you can create for this blog hop...

So.....this is what I came up with for this theme: 

My choice was a fun Christmas card and coordinating gift tag! 
Here is a close up view of the card: 

For the card, I chose Granny Apple Green for my card base and Poppy Parade for my mat layer.  

I love this color combination but was unable to find in all my designer series paper a coordinating sheet! 

Well that was not a problem....I just made my own!  Simply stamp a background and colored with coordinating Stampin' Blends!

Then, the rest was just fun.....I used the Menangerie Mix Up Bundle from page 67.  These critters are so fun!  The greeting is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set. The stitched triangle dies made quick work of my Christmas Tree Punch art.  

And here is a close up of the coordinating gift tag:

Same products as above, just used the Tailored Tag punch to flag the end and a corner rounder on the top edge! 

And one final look at the pair:
