Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop - Children's Birthday

 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 infamous ManuelaIn all seriousness, I feel more blessed than ever to be hopping with someone of such talent! ❤️ Love You Manuela! OXO



The theme for today's hop is Children's Birthday! I feel as though my card today could be for that sweet lil' child of yours, or a sweet friend. After all, we are all actually big kids at heart. Don't yah think? 


I used the Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry Bundle to create my project today! You can check out this wonderful bundle in the image below! Aren't those berries the sweetest? 


Truthfully, I think I might have to mass produce these sweet cards because I have so many sweet friends that I love whom I know would be so happy to receive a special hand made card on their birthday. I already know who I will be mailing this one to. We could all use a little smile in the mail these days. There is no better gift than a hand made card from the heart if you ask me. 


I hope you enjoyed today's inspiration piece! Feel free to leave a comment below, or message me if you have any questions. & On that note, up next in today's hop is Brian King! I can't wait to see what he has to share with us today! His projects are always spectacular!

Stampin' Up! Hippo Happiness Stamp Set! #TGIFC303

Hi everyone! My name is Carolynn, 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 the 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 a sketch challenge! Sketch challenges are my fave! Why you ask? Because you can flip and alter them to make them your own. I find it amazing that one simple inspiration sketch can inspire so many to create such a variety of  projects! Isn't this week's sketch amazing? I thought so!


Here is my take on this week's sketch! I kept it pretty simple as that cute little lamb from the Stampin' Up! Hippo Happiness Stamp Set stole my heart! I figured he was so cute all by himself that I didn't need to add much more to this card. He is pretty special...Just like Ewe! 💖 Isn't that punny? If you didn't notice, I love punny cards! 😂


Well enough of my puns! Thank you so much for visiting today! Feel free to leave a comment below! & Remember to check out the TGIF Challenges Site this week to join in the fun with us! I can't wait to see what everyone creates! 

Cheers & Happy Stamping!

Stampin' Up! Pretty Perennials Bundle - #TGIFC300

Hi everyone! My name is Carolynn, 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 all about Catalogue Inspiration! I chose to use the card on the cover of the catalogue pictured above as a layout design for my card today. If you are ever in need of some inspiration, remember that the Stampin' Up! catalogues are full of ideas! 



Today's card features the Stampin' Up! Pretty Perennials Bundle, and the Stampin' Up! Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper (DSP)! They are a perfect match together if you ask me! FYI if you purchase $60 worth of Stampin' Up! product the DSP is free! It's pretty much a dream come true, especially during these times!

Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop - Memories & More

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 my talented Canadian counterpart Cathy Caines! I heart her and all of her works of art! ❤️


The theme for today is Memories & More! To be honest, my original thoughts were I was going to make a scrapbook page for today's hop! Then time passed me, and I didn't print my photos, and so the inspiration had to flow from elsewhere. So yes... I created a festive card today using the Stampin' Up! Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack!


Of course I combined a few of my favourite dies on today's project! I also added in a swatch of the Stampin' Up! Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper, and showcased the Stampin' Up! Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper! This flocked paper is to die for! It has such a cozy feel to it! Perfect for all of those warm winter projects! If you don't have some yet you must get some! You won't regret it! 

I hope you enjoyed today's simple inspiration piece! Feel free to leave a comment below, or message me if you have any questions. & On that note, up next in today's hop is Brian King! I can't wait to see what he has to share with us today! His projects are always memorable!
