Hi everyone! Welcome to the Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop! You are currently visiting Carolynn Sander. I am located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada! If you have been hopping along, you most likely arrived here via the wonderfully talented Manuela GeiswinklerI have a feeling that she left you feeling pretty inspired today!


The theme for this month is "Feeling Festive"! Here is what I came up with for today's project! What do yah think? Does it scream festive?


Of course a few of my favourite Stampin' Up! products went into the making of today's festive card. The 1st one being the Jolly Season Dies! You can purchase these dies on there own, or as a bundle. Check out the Stampin' Up! Holly Jolly Christmas Bundle in the image below! Isn't it fabulous?



Another favourite is the Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots! They are so sparkly, and full of shine! Perfect for adding that extra bit of bling for the crafting festivities!


Here is a close up of the bling on today's card! Because we haven't seen enough right?

Stampin' Up! Wonderfully Wicked Bundle - #TGIFC234

Hi everyone! My name is Carolynn Sander. I am a Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The TGIF Team is at it again with some crafty inspiration! Come on over to TGIF Challenges Site and have fun creating with us! We would love to see what you come up with!


This week's TGIF theme is "Happy Halloween". Given the focus this week, I couldn't help but share with you all a card that my daughter and I designed together for her 9th Birthday Party Invites!


Today's card features some of my favourite Stampin' Up! sets. A couple of oldies, but mostly my newest favourite goodies! Can you guess them all?  I challenge you! Comment below if you can name all of the Stampin' Up! sets that went into the making of today's project! πŸ’–

I know I haven't been very busy in my stampy crafty blog these days! But saying that, I am very much alive. I am growing on my nursing career by venturing into yet another area that I am passionate about. This means that in the short term I have to focus my energy and time where it is most needed. As much as I LOVE my hobby, I have not so much room for it right now. So please know that I am still here. I will do my best to keep my posts up. I miss my crafting so much! But in this life we have many purposes, and I have to follow my heart in the direction it is leading me in the current moment. 

On that note... Are you are from Canada? If so... in this current moment I would love to have you check out my Stampin' Up! Online shop! Just click on the shop icon below! Also remember to check out the TGIF Challenges Site this week to join in the fun with us!

Cheers & Happy Stamping!

Stampin' Up! Time For Tags Stamp Set - #TGIFC227

Hi everyone! My name is Carolynn Sander. I am a Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The TGIF Team is at it again with some crafty inspiration! Come on over to TGIF Challenges Site and have fun creating with us! We would love to see what you come up with!



This week's TGIF theme is "Embossing Powder". If you want to add that simple WOW factor, then embossing powder is the way to go!


Today's card features my favourite Stampin' Up! hostess set. "Time For Tags" is both adorable & versatile! Check out all of the stamps that are included in this set in the image below.


As far as the embossing component, black embossing powder is the bomb! The "WOO-HOO" stamp, & the pineapple image (both showcased today), were both embossed with black powder! Colouring in your stamped images is a breeze when you choose to emboss first! Long story short, embossing is my favourite go to for stamping lined images!

Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop - Stampin' Up! 2019-2021 In Colours

Hi everyone! Welcome to the Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop! You are currently visiting Carolynn Sander in Calgary, Alberta, Canada! If you have been hopping along, you most likely arrived here via the wonderfully talented Cathy CainesI have a feeling that she left you feeling pretty inspired today!


The theme for today is the Stampin' Up! 2019-2021 In Colours! I always love adding a few new colours to my Stampin' library. And this year's colours are pretty fabulous!


For today's project I went with just three of the five 2019-2021 Stampin' Up! In Colours. I absolutely love how these colours flow together! Seaside Spray, Rococo Rose, & Purple Posy! Check them out in that order below! Are they not beautiful? 



And how about that mane? Is it not fabulous? Are you curious as to how I created those crimped strands of coordinating unicorn hair? Well guess what? They were pulled from my most favourite ribbon! Yep! I pulled my ribbon apart to create unicorn hair! The exact same Stampin' Up! ribbon you see below! 


Next time you are looking for that special coordinating embellishment, but you don't want ribbon, just hack that ribbon and pull out some pretty strands! You can go wild with ribbon fibres! Wild like a unicorn!

Hmmm... speaking of unicorns, one of my most favourite humans, who is a lover of all unicorns, made a pretty magical card this week! I loved it so much! And I love her even more! So I promised her I would post it on my blog. I have to say that I am so very blessed to be this little girl's mom. And to share her wonderful creation with you all makes me smile from ear to ear. There is nothing better in life than sharing what you love, with those you love the most. πŸ’–


On that note, next up in today's hop is Brian King! I can't wait to see what he has to share with us today! His creations are always magical!
