Rooted in Nature Crate Container

Welcome to the Ink & Share Blog Hop! I am so excited to be hopping with so many talented
Stampin’ Up!®️ Demonstrators from around the globe! Today’s hop is featuring anything but cards. So what does that mean? Well, it could be boxes, scrapbook layouts, place cards for table settings, just about any paper craft that isn’t a card! I love this theme and am excited to share my project with you!

Don’t forget to click that Next button at the bottom of this post to hop around to all of the talented demonstrators participating this month!

I can’t get over how ADORABLE this Crate Box is! I was scrolling through Pinterest for inspiration on the Rooted in Nature Bundle and stumbled across Nadine’s Stampin Club. She posted this gorgeous box, and I believe it was inspired by Sabine’s Kreativecke. Thank you ladies, for your amazing talent and for sharing this wonderful project with the world!

So, in my video, I highly encouraged viewers to come to this blog post so that they could see the list of measurements. I think it’s a lot easier to cut paper for a project when it’s all in one, neat list. So, below are the measurements and the materials I’ve used on this project today. Don’t forget to scroll all the way down to check out the video tutorial and then hop around to all of the other wonderful demonstrators on this blog hop by clicking on the Next button!

Measurements:

Crate – Early Espresso 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ (cut 2 pieces from Wood Crate Die)
Wrap – Old Olive 3-3/8″ x 9-3/4″ (length is approximate if you score as I did in the video)

2018 August Kre8tors Blog Hop

It’s once again time for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Where a group of Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world share their projects and ideas with you! We have been hard at work on the August hop and are so excited to share this month’s theme: WATER!

That’s right, we are featuring OUR interpretations of the theme, water. It could be in the ocean, a beverage, weather related, or just about anything else that has to do with water. One of my favorite seasonal transitions is from Summer to Fall, and living in the United States in the state Oregon, I love the rain! I can’t wait for it! I know, most people aren’t fans of the rain, but I’m very ready for it! 🙂

The card I decided to make features a fun fish bowl in a mason jar! I wanted to blend two of my favorite sets together, Jar of Love and Sea of Textures. Jar of Love is a classic that has been with us for a little bit now. There are coordinating framelits dies to cut out the fish, jar, and so many more shapes and jar sizes!

I combined this with the brand new Sea of Textures stamp set with coordinating framelits dies, Under the Sea. I used that set to cut out the coral and background foliage. I also stamped the “thanks” from this set.

I love using Window Sheets to get a really fun 3D effect for my “fishbowl”. I stamped directly on the window sheet to make the jar, and then popped up my fish and coral using layered dimensionals. I added a few sequins to finish it off and hide the dimensionals. I love how it turned out! What do you think? Check out the video below for more details on how this came together!

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Window Sheet: Approximately 2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″
Whisper White Scraps for fish and coral
Tropical Escape DSP Scraps for foliage


Materials:

June 2018 Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop

Welcome, Kre8tors, to the June 2018 Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! I’m so excited to share an alternate project from this month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit, Broadway Star. I absolutely adore the colors in this kit! Green, Pink, and Gold… what more could a girl ask for?!

This alternate card was a lot of fun to put together, and it was so quick! I used the envelope for the card mat by cutting it down to 4″ x 5-1/4″. I also used an additional piece of Basic Black cardstock for the card base, cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″.

For the main embellishment, I took one of the Broadway Billboards and put two cakes on it, along with some of the sticker candles. It would look super cute if you added a few pearls to the cakes!

I stamped the Congrats sentiment in Lovely Lipstick, and then wrapped the bakers twine around the card mat twice and finished it off with a bow. I used a mini glue dot to hold the bow in place.

And finally for the inside, I added one of the Whisper White banner stickers along with a Gold Foil Hooray sticker. I just love how it shines!

I hope you enjoyed this alternate project today! Don’t forget to scroll down and watch my video tutorial for this card. Scroll all the way down to the pumpkin icon and click it to continue hopping with the rest of the demonstrators for this Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop!

April’s Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome to the April Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! I’m so excited about this kit!!! As soon as I opened the box, I knew this was going to be a fun kit to make an alternate project with. I can’t wait to share my idea with you! Don’t forget to scroll down and keep hopping to see SO many other wonderful alternate projects for this kit.

These are the suggested cards inside the kit. I love how we get a cute little box to put these 5 cards in! And BONUS! There’s enough to make three full sets! WOW! That’s a lot of cards! What fun gifts this will make! I really love how I get a monthly delivery of craft supplies with my Paper Pumpkin subscription. It’s a great way to build up some stamps and inks, as well as other supplies. And if I don’t really care for that month’s projects, I can always turn it into something else, like I did with this month’s kit!

I decided to make a mini album with this kit. It was a lot of fun taking different bits and pieces from all the included materials and re-arranging them to make this fun fold mini album! I can’t wait to print out some photos to include inside when I gift it!

I used the cards as the base for the album, and then cut apart the envelopes to make fun interactive pockets for little notes. I also stamped and glued the embellishments from this month’s kit on all the pages.

I loved how creative I was able to get with this mini album. I want to turn this into a scrapbook after I gift it, and put in photos, movie stubs, and maybe even the top of the receipt for the restaurant we go to as a reminder of where we went.

I haven’t been able to get around to making a video tutorial this time. Life has been crazy busy this month with moving and starting a new job! I really hope you enjoyed this project and consider giving Paper Pumpkin a try! You have nothing to lose and MORE craft supplies to gain!!!

Here’s my quick video showing how I put together the little box. AND I got to use my Stamparatus for the first time! (Available at the beginning of June.) At the end of this video is a little snippet of my alternate mini album in more detail. I hope you enjoy!
