Welcome Kre8tors! So excited to have you here for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Be sure to use that Next button below to hop along to the next amazing blog post for some more crafty inspiration!
I have a confession to make…
If you’ve been a customer or a demonstrator of Stampin’ Up! for awhile, you will notice that the Designer Series Paper that I used on this card is no longer available. That means I am breaking one of my very own Blog Hop Rules of only using current products. BUT I do have a good reason for why!
Most of you know that I was absent from posting about Stampin’ Up! the last half of 2020 and for nearly all of 2021. It wasn’t for a lack of interest in the company or products anymore. I always have and always will LOVE it.
The reason for my absence was that I started my own business, and that takes a lot of time and dedication. I just couldn’t do it all, so I had to put a few things to the side so that I could focus on growing. If you’re curious about what it is that I do now, you can head over to 3 Mile Lane Co to learn more.
So, let’s talk about today’s project. You may recognize that the DSP I used is definitely no longer available. In fact it’s a few years old! I made this project, and filmed the coordinating video below, when this stamp set was a Suite! I just never got around to posting it.
The stamp set and punch are still current products, and I really wanted to share this card with you, so that’s why I’m using it today! (And let’s just breeze over the fact that I edited the video and drafted this blog post at 10pm the night before it was due!!)
So, the truth is, there is nothing that I want more than to make YouTube videos with Stampin’ Up! products all day long for you! But with the demands of my business (which is my full time job!) I just can’t get to everything, right now… I’m really hoping I can do a few things that will free up some more of my time so that I can make room for the things I enjoy so much, like making projects to share with you!
So if you made it this far in the post, THANK YOU! You are the reason I continue to post as much as I can! I hope I can continue bringing you crafty inspiration! And I really hope you hop with us this month to see the other incredible projects from so many of my talented, and more active, Stampin’ Up! friends!
