2018 KRE8TORS - MAY BLOG HOP


Welcome to the May 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop! This is our 5th hop, and I’m so excited to continue working with so many talented demonstrators in sharing our passion for paper crafting! If you’d like to check out our previous blog hops, click below:


This month we are saying Goodbye to the Occasions Catalogue and some of the awesome products that will no longer be available after May 31st. Some products may already be sold out - thats exactly what happened with my original creation using Petal Passion Memories and More Card Pack - already sold out. So if you see something you like, don't wait order it from your demonstrator now. 

So instead I wanted to feature one of my favourite kits - the Perennial Birthday Project Kit. 






Stock this delightful box with birthday cards you make yourself and you'll never forget to send a birthday card again. This kit includes components for making 16 birthday cards, 4 each of 4 designs, plus the box to store them in. Keep ahead by recording birthdays on the tabbed dividers for month-at-a-glance reminders. 

Here is a closer look at each of the cards - I kept almost exact to the instructions with minor changes and of course you can play around with the cards and make them your own as well:











With this kit you also need the Perennial Birthday Stamp set, three inks and your adhesives. BUT this stamp set is continuing in the next annual catalogue and there are so many great uses with the stamp set outside of this kit so its a great purchase as well or ask your demonstrator to borrow theirs (mine is available).

Stampin' Up! also provides a video - check it out for a closer look at whats included in the kit.



For a full list of supplies see below with links to my 24/7 Online Store.

STAMP' N HOP - MAY BLOG HOP

Welcome to the May Edition of the Stamp ‘N Hop blog hop!

This month we are focusing on the NEW catalogue that comes out in June - as demonstrators we have access to preorder opportunities from about mid April until the end of May. This allows us to get some of the new products to play with and get samples ready for you guys! But Stampin' Up! has offered for everyone an Early Release of the Share What You Love Suite with Exclusive Bundles. 


The bundles are available throughout the month of May and with each bundle there are FREE products! Plus there is a 10% discount for the NEW In Colours 2018-2020 ink pad bundle. For the full flyer click here.

So I wanted to focus on this bundle - when I saw it at the Stampin' Up! OnStage conference I immediately fell in love with it - the colours and the stamps - and look at all that Mint Macaron! Stunning! 

So I will admit that I just made these cards last night - I've been under the weather and putting all of my energy into my day job - but it was fun to finally open up the paper and play with the stamp set and here is what I created:





I can't wait to play with it some more - to show at my June Launch event!

BABY SHOWER FOR KPCC

Because we are celebrating mom's and mother-figures in our lives this month I thought I would also take the time to bless the mom's and mom's-to-be in the community with a Baby Shower for the Kingston Pregnancy Care Centre



I recently started working at KPCC and I would love to provide a chance to share what we do with all of you and allow you to partner with me through either financial donations (give online) or physical donations such as diapers, baby toiletries, maternity clothes, etc (see full needs list below). 
The Centre is a non-profit organization and the supplies we provide our clients with are all from donations from the community and right now our supplies are low.
I hope you will join me in blessing these mom's and mommy-to-be's this month! 
For more information about the Centre please check out their website

THANK YOU GIFTS

And as a thank you for any donations you are able to provide I would like to offer either a pack of three handmade cards of your choice or FREE shipping on your order placed this month or a coupon for 50% off a JUNE event/class. 

DONATIONS NEEDED

If you would like to donate actual items please see below for a list of needs we have right now. We also accept gentle used baby/toddler clothes and maternity clothes. 
You can drop off at my house (339 Arrowhead Place) during an event or at an arranged time/date.

INK AND SHARE APRIL BLOG HOP


Welcome to the April edition of the Ink & Share blog hop! 

My name is Amy and I’m stamping from Ontario, Canada! This is our third month for the Ink & Share group - if you missed the previous hops you can check them out here:
February 2018 - Theme: Sale-A-Bration



This month our focus is the Occasions catalogue - which will end May 31st - just a little over a month left of this beautiful selection of products! And I loved the chance to flip through it and look at some of the favourites I haven't had much time to play with yet.




When I first saw the Apron of Love bundle I had so many ideas - I love that you can use it for cooking, BBQing or even crafting! And there are so many great projects on Pinterest too! And with Mother's Day just around the corner I thought I would focus on the feminine side of this stamp set (though I know a few male bakers this would be perfect for too - though maybe loose the frills on the apron pocket!).






This is ones of those sets I highly encourage you to get as a bundle because the die cuts are awesome and really bring it all together! I decided with these cards to not use the string die cuts and inside used white twine to give it a bit more texture. 

This is also a stamp set that is sticking around in the next annual catalogue BUT you only have until May 31st to take advantage of the 10% bundle deal.
