For the Love of Creating Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to the For the Love of Creating Blog Hop! This is a new quarterly blog hop that will focus on highlighting the latest and greatest Stampin’ Up! products. So thanks for stopping by today. I hope you’ll jump all the way through the hop and see all the amazing projects that the designers have come up with using new Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration products. This is an insanely talented team, so you won’t want to miss anyone’s blog. Currently you’re visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA.

Stampin' Up! Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts with Hold On to Hope, Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper, Sale-A-Bration Shimmer Ribbon Pack (free with $50 purchase), Stampin' Write Markers - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

My first card is a card I made for a recent swap with other demonstrators. The background is stamped with a floral flourish from the Hold On to Hope stamp set. The flower cart comes from Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts, and I colored it with Stampin’ Write Markers. I also sponged Lemon-Lime Twist around the flowers before I colored them in.

Stampin' Up! Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts with Hold On to Hope, Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper, Sale-A-Bration Shimmer Ribbon Pack (free with $50 purchase), Stampin' Write Markers - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

The sentiment is from Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts. What a sweet message to send to a friend! The ribbon is FREE Sale-A-Bration ribbon (with $50 order), and the glimmer paper is from the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper. One thing about gluing things down on top of Glimmer Paper — you need to use hot glue or the Fine Tip Glue Pen or the Multipurpose Liquid Glue and allow a long drying time. What I did for the swap cards was I put the Glimmer Paper banner underneath the flower cart layer, then attached the ribbon and sentiment on top of the flower cart layer. That takes a lot less time!

Stampin' Up! Celebrate You thinlits (free with $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration), Hello Color, Brusho Crystal Colour, emboss resist handmade celebration card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

My second card is in a completely different direction and a different style. I can never settle on my own personal style, because I love them all. I heat embossed the Hello Color stamp from the Annual Catalog, then sprinkled Brusho Crystals on top of the embossed area, then spritzed. I used Prussian Blue, Brilliant Red, and Yellow. Look how many wonderful colors and shades you can get from a few sprinkles and a quick spritzing! Brusho is one of my very favorite products from the new Occasions Catalog.

Stampin' Up! Celebrate You thinlits (free with $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration), Hello Color, Brusho Crystal Colour, emboss resist handmade celebration card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

The “celebrate” sentiment is die cut from Shimmery White cardstock using the Celebrate You thinlits (free with $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration). After I cut it out, I sprinkled on Prussian Blue and Brilliant Red Brusho crystals, then spritzed the die cut. And this is how it turned out! I love that you never know what you will get with Brusho.

Stampin' Up! Labels to Love slider box - video tutorial - treat packaging for Mentos gum - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Hey! My husband bought me a new phone on Black Friday (it was seriously cheap), and one of the perks of that new phone is that I have loads more storage space now, so I can do videos more often! This is not a Facebook Live video, so I get right to it. That’s new for me. :) I hope you enjoy it.

Gingerbread Houses scrapbook page

Good morning! Today’s project is a 2-page scrapbook layout (click picture to embiggen). I was looking through my Christmas Around the World paper over the weekend, and when I saw this sheet with all the Christmas goodies, I was inspired to finally scrapbook some photos from last year when we made gingerbread houses.

Stampin' Up! 2-page 12x12 Christmas layout for gingerbread houses - Christmas Around the World paper, Sweet Home stamps, Home Sweet Home thinlits, Cookie Cutter Christmas, Cookie Cutter Builder Punch - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

The gingerbread house and gum drops are from the Sweet Home stamp set and the Home Sweet Home thinlits. The heart and star are from the Trim Your Stocking thinlits. The font that I used for the title is, sadly, retired. I stamped it on Whisper White, then punched out each letter with the Pretty Label punch, then snipped off the decorative sides. Under the bottom edge of the title, you can see a strip of Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape. It is sooooo pretty in person.

Stampin' Up! 2-page 12x12 Christmas layout for gingerbread houses - Christmas Around the World paper, Sweet Home stamps, Home Sweet Home thinlits, Cookie Cutter Christmas, Cookie Cutter Builder Punch - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

The gingerbread cookies are from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set, punched with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch, and the journaling card is from the Color Theory Card Pack. The ribbon on both pages is Real Red 1/8″ Solid Ribbon.
