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.

One of a Kind

Stampin' Up! Magical Day scrapbook page, Magical Mates framelits, Sunshine & Rainbows, Rainbow Builder framelits, one of a kind layout, Myths & Magic paper - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Good morning! Hopefully I’m still sleeping when this post goes live. If not, hopefully I’m on my way back to bed. Today I get to show you a darling scrapbook layout I made with the Myths & Magic suite of products along with the Sunshine & Rainbows bundle. Myths & Magic is my favorite, and Sunshine & Rainbows is definitely in my top 5. Especially now that I’ve used it.

*The 12″x12″ cardstock is from the Painted With Love cardstock assortment. I was so happy to be able to get Melon Mambo 12″x12″ cardstock again. The cloud paper is from the Myths & Magic paper, and the starry paper is from the Sale-A-Bration paper, Bubbles & Fizz (FREE with a $50 purchase).

*For the clouds along the bottom, I used the Rainbow Builder framelits — there are some big cloud edgelits that come in the set. I used Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and Whisper White 12″x12″ paper for the clouds. To get the white cloud layer to stick to the bottom glimmer paper layer, I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen. You have to hold it on there and wait a while for it to dry, but it will stay stuck.

*The name/date tabs on the photos are punched with the Circle Tab Punch.

*I’m totally gaga over this fat unicorn! She’s from Magical Day. I stamped her in Rich Razzleberry, then colored her in with Rich Razzleberry (Light and Dark) and Pink Pirouette (Light and Dark) Stampin’ Blends. Plus Bermuda Bay (Light/Dark) Stampin’ Blends on the horn.

*The Rainbow Builder framelits make the rainbow SO easy! There are 7 sizes, and they nest perfectly for a ROYGBIV rainbow. I did my rainbow in Melon Mambo, Peekaboo Peach, Daffodil Delight, Lemon-Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay, Sweet Sugarplum, and Rich Razzleberry. I cut all of the pieces, then glued them down to the largest circle from the Layering Circles framelits. I chopped off the excess circle, then cut the half-circle off in the center of the rainbow. When you do it this way, you can move the rainbow around to your heart’s content until you decide exactly where you want it. That’s Wink of Stella all over the rainbow and the unicorn’s hair.

*The title is from Magical Day, and after I cut it out with the die from the framelits, I stamped “you are” again, then snipped it out and popped it up on Mini Dimensionals. I cut a second banner out of Lemon-Lime Twist, snipped it apart in the middle, and glued it to the top and bottom of the back of the title.

*You could easily convert this title section to a card. In fact, I’m sure I will!

The tiny sun is from Sunshine & Rainbows, and the sunburst behind it, stamped in Melon Mambo, is from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Amazing You (FREE with $50 purchase!). It adds a little texture and a little fun.

Hello! Thanks for stopping by my blog today. We are being highlighted by the wonderful Kylie Bertucci, and you can VOTE for my project. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop in January, so please do go vote for me. I’d love to be in the top 10 blog hop again next month!

Coming soon! Stampin' Up! handmade wedding cake card using Cake Soiree, Sweet Cake Framelits, and Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack - FREE item in Sale-A-Bration 2018 - starts January 3 - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

This month, our theme for the Blog Highlight is Flowers. I was happy to see the theme, because I have wonderful new stuff to play with from the upcoming Occasions catalog. I’m showing the Sweet Soiree suite, featuring the Cake Soiree bundle. The background papers are actually cards from the Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack, which you will only be able to get for FREE during Sale-A-Bration (January 3 – March 31, 2018) with a $50 order. This is one of the most beautiful Memories & More products we’ve ever had and is perfect for making quick and easy cards.

No, I’m serious! This card was quick and easy! Okay, quick-ish. But easy! I glued down the first M&M card. Then I popped the second M&M card up on Dimensionals. I stamped the gorgeous flowered cake from Cake Soiree in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with the matching framelit. I colored the flowers with Powder Pink, Old Olive, Marina Mist, and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Markers. I painted Wink of Stella on the white top of the cake, and the top of the bottom layer of the cake, though you can’t see it in the photos. It’s really pretty and sparkly, though! I cut the cake stand out of Champagne Foil with the Sweet Cake framelits — isn’t it fantastic?? I love that intricate detail.

I stamped the sentiment, from the same stamp set/bundle, in Rich Razzleberry and punched it out with the Classic Label punch. I finished the card off with some Calypso Coral ribbon. I love how flawlessly this whole suite coordinates, and I can’t wait to show you even more projects using this suite!

For the inside, I stamped more stamps from Cake Soiree in Rich Razzleberry and colored the images in with Powder Pink and Marina Mist. The strip of paper down the left side is from the Sweet Soiree specialty designer series paper. You are going to LOVE this paper!

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.
