INK & INSPIRATION BLOG HOP

Thursday 28 December 2017     Welcome to this month's Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop and the last for 2017, we look forward to sharing lots more inspiration in 2018. Please join me in welcoming our new team members - Dena Albee, Dena Rekow, Genevieve Ko and Susanne Netz to our Blog Hops. You are currently visiting Angela Meiritz-Reid from Christchurch, New Zealand. The theme this month is Fun Folds. Please hop around the list at the bottom to check out all the inspirational projects created by the team. As this card is for an 11 year old girl I've chosen the new Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue - it's so cute! The Happy Birthday stamp is from Perennial Birthday, also from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue and only 6 days till you can order from it! The type of fun fold card I've made is called a Twisted Pop-Up card. And this is where the magic happens - as you open the card up it twists and out pop th

CASEING THE CATTY #159 ANY PROJECT FROM THE HOLIDAY CATALOGUE

Sunday 17 December 2017 Hello and welcome to this week's CASEing the Catty Blog Hop. Our latest and last challenge for 2017 is to Case any Project from the Holiday Catalogue.   Once again I've picked the card from page 22. I love the layout of this little sweater card - it makes a perfect 3 x 3" card for the pizza boxes. For the base I've used a patterned piece of paper from the Petal Garden DSP stack in Pool Party and teamed it with Island Indigo and Lemon Lime Twist. The stamp set is Confetti Celebration and I've also used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Pool Party Solid Baker's Twine. We would love you to join us with your CASE this week, using our Facebook group. Click on the image below to go there. For the first time you'll need to click on the "Join Group" button at the top. After you're added you can post your creation and you don't need to have a blog. Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the

2018 OCCASIONS CATALOGUE SNEAK PEEK

Friday 14 December 2018    The Tutti-Frutti Suite in the 2018 Occasions Catalogue is full of "cute images and vivid colours designed for simple stamping"! I love the freshness of this suite and the fruit looks good enough to eat!     With such beautiful papers to showcase I was reluctant to cover them up as they really are the star of the show!     The Fruit Basket stamp set is available in a bundle with the Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack - although for these strawberries I did fussy cut them.     I'm hoping these fabulous Black Rhinestones will continue on from the Holiday Catalogue but if they don't you can colour the Basic Rhinestone Jewels with the new Stampin' Blends.     Of course there is co-ordinating ribbon - Lemon Lime Twist 3/8" (1 cm) Mini Striped Ribbon. How cute is that?     The fonts in this stamp set are sweet and simple too, and a little corny! This cute little box is perfect to hold a selection of min

CASEING THE CATTY #158 A PROJECT FROM A PAGE THAT IS YOUR AGE!

Sunday 10 December 2017 Hello and welcome to this week's CASEing the Catty Blog Hop. Our latest challenge is to Case a Project from a page that is your age! Without giving anything away ... there isn't a project on the page that is my age so instead I chose a page that is the age I liked being - "43"! My card is based on the top left card - I'm always drawn to this card. I think it looks so fresh and clean.   I've stuck to the same colours, Island Indigo, Pool Party and Lemon Lime Twist, and used the Sparkle embossing folder too. Luckily I had just enough of the Eastern Palace Speciality Designer Series paper to create my card!   And this snazzy stamp is from the new Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set available 3 January from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue. This Catalogue and the Sale•A•Bration Brochure are full of amazing new Stampin' Up!® products - email me ( angela.frank00@gmail.com ) if you'd like complimentary copies

CASEING THE CATTY #157 CASE A COLOUR COMBINATION

Sunday 3 December 2017     Hello and welcome to this week's CASEing the Catty Blog Hop. Our latest challenge is to Case a Colour Combination.     I've chosen to CASE the colour and layout of the card on the left hand side in the photograph below.   I've used the Powder Pink paper from the Fresh Florals Designer Paper Stack and teamed it up with the Powder Pink 1 cm Shimmer Ribbon.   Yes that stamp is a new one! It's called Picture Perfect Birthday and I've stamped it here in Basic Grey.   I've added a Linen Thread bow like the original although the Basic Rhinestones are my added extras. I love a little bling!   We would love you to join us with your CASE this week, using our Facebook group. Click on the image below to go there.
