Crazy Crafter's "Case a Project from Pinterest" October Blog Hop


Thank you for joining The Crazy Crafters team for our monthly blog hop.  The theme for the October Blog Hop is "Case a Project from Pinterest".  If you've been on Pinterest, you know what a source of inspiration the cards and projects are, not to mention being highly addictive.  If you haven't been on Pinterest before, start with my Pinterest Boards here and don't forget to follow me.  

Now for my Project.  I came across a cute little Fry Box Gift Bag from Valerie Moody.  I stayed with the Christmas Theme and used traditional Christmas colours.  I adore using bling on my cards and Projects and what better time than Christmas to add a touch of sparkle and glitter.  










Thanks for visiting and I would love for you to leave a comment,
Sue.

Crazy Crafter's Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue September Blog Hop



Thank you for joining The Crazy Crafters team for our monthly blog hop.  The theme for the September Blog Hop is the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue.  The Holiday Catalogue is full of wonderful products to create your Halloween, Thanks Giving & Christmas Projects.  I have purchased numerous products from the Holiday Catalogue, so was spoilt for choice on what to use in this Blog Hop.  

We hope you enjoy our virtual hop where you will learn great techniques for your paper crafting projects.

You should have just left stop number 8 on the Crazy Crafters Hop - Angela Lorenz at Ang's Crafty Cards.  If so, you are in the right spot. If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

For my Project, I decided to go with a Halloween theme and create some 3D items using the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Die & the Gift Box Punch Board.  The stamped images are from the Freaky Friends stamp set and the DSP is called Motley Monsters.  I have to tell you, I had so much fun making the little boxes.  At the bottom of this post you will find the Stampin' Up! You Tube videos on how to use and construct the Curvy Keepsake Box and the different sizes boxes you can create using the Gift Box Punch Board.  You will easily master your first one and you won't know where to stop. As you can see below, I just had to make one in each of the Motley Monsters DSP coordinating colors.   


Curvy Keepsake Box textured embossed with Tiny Triangles & 2.5" Gift Box in Basic Black & Bermuda Bay

Curvy Keepsake Box textured embossed with Large Polka Dot & 2.5" Gift Box in Bermuda Bay

Curvy Keepsake Box textured embossed with Lucky Stars from the Holiday Catalogue & 2.5" Gift Box in Crushed Curry

Curvy Keepsake Box textured embossed with Argyle & 2.5" Gift Box in Sahara Sand

Curvy Keepsake Box textured embossed with Zig Zag & 2.5" Gift Box in Tangerine Tango

To add texture to the Curvy Keepsake Box, I ran the 2 pieces through the Big Shot using different Textured Embossing Folders.  Of course, you could keep the Box plain, texture emboss 1 of the pieces, use DSP or a combination of Card Stock and DSP.  

The thing that most impresses me with both the Curvy Keepsake Box & the Gift Box Punch Board is that you can use it all year round for many occasions just by changing the Card Stock colours and DSP.  With Christmas coming up, either would make gorgeous Christmas table treats, end of year break up boxes for gifts to fellow students or teachers or wedding bonbonniere for sugared almonds or chocolate (yum yum).

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all the dads in Australia today.  Here's a card I made for Father's Day in classic black and white with a touch of gray.  I love the birds in the tree image from the Serene Silhouettes Stamp Set.  The Happy Father's Day sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments punched out the word window punch.

Trim the Tree Note Cards

How cute are these little Christmas Note Cards?  The size of the Note Cards are approx 10cm x 10cm and you can make 3 cards out of the 1 piece of card stock, Cherry Cobbler in this case.  The patterned papers are from the Trim the Tree DSP Stack and there are 48 sheets in the 1 stack in 12 different patterns, so you'll be able to make a bunch of Christmas Cards.  The stamped images are from the Festival of Trees stamp set and the Christmas Tree image can be punched with the coordinating Tree Punch.  These are two of the must have products for this Christmas Season and are perfect for use on cards, tags, bag and boxes.  If you buy the Stamp Set and Punch in a Bundle, you save 15 %.






Happy Stamping,
Sue

August 2014 Charity - RSPCA Cupcake Day



Today is Cupcake Day for the RSPCA.  My work is hosting a RSPCA Cupcake Day event by selling home baked cupcakes and raffle tickets for donated prizes.  I have contributed to the prizes by providing a gift box of 15 handmade cat & dog themed greeting cards.  


Instead of baking cupcakes, I made an extra 24 cat & dog cards in the same design as those in the gift box, which will hopefully be purchase by my fellow colleagues to raise funds for a very worthwhile cause. 



Here's a close up look at some of the cards...
