Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop - Sale-A-Bration!

Hi there! 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 super talented friend Janneke! Wasn't her creation today fabulous? She is always inspiring me! 💖


The theme for today's hop is Sale-A-Bration & I can't wait to see what our team members have created! If you are a papercrafter you must already know that Sale-A-Bration is the best time of year! The current Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration freebies are amazing! I decided to go back to my scrapbooking roots for this month's theme. I created a bright and colorful layout showcasing the Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper (DSP). You can earn this paper for free with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration! How awesome is that? 💖 


Have a look at all of the wonderful patterned paper that is part of this DSP pack in the picture below. You won't be disappointed! 


I of course combined a few of my favorite Stampin' Up! coordinating products to complete today's project. I am so very happy with how this keepsake turned out. I hope to be sharing more memory making projects with you this coming year, so make sure to visit my site again soon. I will also have a supply list at the bottom of today's post. That way if you wish to recreate your own similar layout you have an ingredient list to work with. Of course if you have any questions feel free to send me an email or leave a comment below! 😊


Below is a zoom shot of the Stampin' Up! 2020-2022 In Color Square Gems. Don't they add that extra special touch? I was tempted to add more to this layout, but I stopped myself. I think it has enough interest with all of the fun products, stamps, and dies. Sometimes enough is enough right? Or as one of my good friends would always say.... "It's good enough."  And I love it! Hope you do too! 


 I hope that you enjoyed today's project!  Up next in today's hop is Brian King! He is a Crafty God as far as I am concerned! I know he will inspire you! Love you Brian! 💖

Stampin' Up! Sweet Conversations Bundle - #TGIFC350

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 theme includes a gorgeous color combo! Blushing Bride & Night of Navy with a splash of gold!   


Today's theme was the perfect excuse for me to play with the Gilded Leafing I had purchased ages back. Can you believe that up until now it was sitting in my crafty cabinet untouched? Yah! I can't believe it either! This stuff was so fun to work with that I know I will be reaching for it more often in the future. To make the heart that rich gold colour all I did was ink it up in Versamark Ink. I then coated it with  heat and stick powder and warmed it with my heat tool. I then took some of the Gold Gilded Leaf  flakes and stuck them to my heart. Lastly, I burnished it with my finger tip and a blending brush and voila! You have a gorgeous heart of gold! 


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! FYI...You will want to participate in this week's challenge as we will be choosing a guest designer based on this week's participants projects!  
 
Cheers & Happy Stamping!

Stampin' Up! Flowering Tulips Bundle - #TGIFC349

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 card closures! A pretty fun theme I must say! I decided to create a "Belly Band" for today's card. Belly bands are a great way to add interest to your projects, and of course they are also a cute way to add a creative closure!   


Today's project features a few of my favourite new products from the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalogue which was just released! The Stampin' Up! Flowering Tulips Bundle is a gorgeous combination of products! 


I was so happy to ink up this set! I love the TGIF Challenges as they give me the inspiration to create with the amazing Stampin' Up! products that I keep collecting & hoarding! You can never have too many stamps! But you should also try to use them once in a while. 😉
