Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop : March Madness
This month's blog hop has been one of my favourites! I'm a little mad, so this was perfect. It's been spring here for a while too (sorry for all my winter bound friends), so I'm totally feeling the flowers and colourful things.
If you're new to my blog, you probably came from Jackie's blog, welcome! You can also follow along to the next stop and visit Gail.
My first project, my fancy fold, is using the scallop tag topper punch. These cards are so fun (and easy) to make, but I don't make enough of them! I made one as a swap last year for convention, and then the technique sat on the shelf for most of a year. I busted it out again for this card though, using some different colours and the awesome Painted Petals stamp set and Painted Blooms designer series paper.
My next project is a shaking it up just a bit (get it? I'm so funny). I made this card for a friend who just LOOOOOOVES confetti. The Celebrate Today stamp set and coordinating Balloon Framelits made it come together in a snap. The Star Confetti punch is another of my favourites, makes it so easy to make a ton of confetti in any colour!
Last but not least, I don't usually make boxes or other 3D projects, so I didn't think I needed the bow builder punch. But I got it. And then I made these little toppers for these little candy boxes (that I totally CASEd from Rachel Legge). And then I realized how much I needed to have it. Wouldn't these make a great little "just because" gift or as a nice little extra in an easter basket?
So now that's you've checked out my projects, hop along the blog hop trail to Gail's blog and follow along to check out everyone else's fabulous projects! Any and all of the supplies I used here today are available from Stampin' Up!, so if you'd like to get them for yourself, contact your demonstrator today!
