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 New Catalog inspiration!

Hues of Happiness by MKre8tions-1

I am SO excited to share my project from the brand new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog with you! I used the new Hues of Happiness Suite which includes the Happiness Abounds Stamp Set and coordinating Blossoming Happiness Dies as well as the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper AND the Glossy Dots Assortment.

Creating from a suite makes an entire project effortless! You know that all of the products will coordinated beautifully and you can make SO many different designs!

Hues of Happiness by MKre8tions-3

For my project today, I decided to make a cute little floral box for a very dear friend of mine. This box is 2″ x 2″ x 4-1/2″ and is made from a piece of Starry Sky cardstock.

I used the Gilded Leafing as a beautiful gold accent on the top and stamped the sentiment with Starry Sky on Basic White Cardstock. I stamped the flowers and greenery with Orchid Oasis and Parakeet Party and used the same colors to water color the images. I also sprinkled in some of the Sweet Sorbet and Tahitian Tide for dimension on the images.

I tied the box together using the Pool Party Sheer Ribbon, which is a returning favorite. 

I don’t have a coordinating YouTube video today, but I’m hoping to film one for this adorable little box soon! Make sure you are subscribed to my YouTube channel so you know when it is posted.

April 2022 Kre8tors Blog Hop Free For All

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!

Love is in the Air – January 2022 Kre8tors Blog Hop

Welcome Kre8tors! It’s been a hot minute since you’ve seen a Blog Hop from us! I’m so excited to welcome you back if you’ve missed us, and welcome you here if you’re new! Be sure to use that Next button below to hop along to the next amazing blog post for some more crafty inspiration!

Today’s project features the Sweet Talk Suite! I wanted to CASE the adorable little treat box from the January – June 2022 Mini Catalog on page 8, so I made sure to grab the entire Suite so I had everything I would need!

I was able to add the cardstock and DSP to the box using very little measuring or math! So this is a SUPER easy project to whip together!

I love how shopping in suites makes it so easy to create a bunch of different projects! I had everything I needed, along with the basic supplies I already had, to make this cute box, plus a TON more projects!

I can’t wait to fill up this adorable treat box with some homemade marshmallow hearts, or even a thin brownie.

Or I could go a completely different route and put some cute conversation hearts with actual conversations on them!

The possibilities to fill this little box are nearly endless!

Be sure you take a peek at my YouTube video below to find out how this adorable little box came together, and to see some behind the scenes on filming a quick video for TikTok.

Don’t forget, this is a BLOG hop! Be sure you visit each site below to find some more awesome inspiration for your Stampin’ Up! crafting adventures!

Kre8tors Blog Hop August 2020 Anniversary

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 anniversary inspiration!

This card is lightning fast today! It’s a very simple card that I made for my husband for our anniversary coming up on the 12th. One of his favorite colors is red, so I wanted to focus on that and use Cherry Cobbler as the base. I added a simple card mat to the front and inside. I used the Tasteful Touches stamp set and coordinating dies to cut out the label in Smokey Slate card stock. I stamped the floral sprigs with Cherry Cobbler ink and the sentiment is done with StazOn.

I just wanted to let you all know that I am taking a short break from videos and blog posts here. I will still be an active demonstrator, as long as my selling limits will allow, and I will still support my customers and team members. I’m working on a new business venture over at 3 mile lane co specializing in custom stickers, cold cups, and mugs. If you’re interested in following me over there, I will be posting to a new YouTube channel very soon. You can subscribe to that channel by clicking here.

Thank you so much for the last four years of your support! I have learned so much and grown even more. I appreciate all of your encouragement and love this community! But it’s time for me to make a decision to earn more income for my family and for myself. I hope you all understand, and know that it’s not forever, it’s just for now.

Measurements:

Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″
Card Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Scrap for Label: 3″ x 4″

July 2020 KBH Tropical Nights Color Challenge

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 color challenge inspiration!

This was our inspiration image. I loved how the palms were shadowed in the foreground with the beautiful sunset reflecting off the clouds in the background.

The colors that were pulled from this image included Basic Black, Basic Gray, Rococo Rose, Night of Navy, and So Saffron. The pink, blue, yellow scheme offers so many options because almost every color can be made from those three bases!

At first I wanted to use all three of those colors, but my first card attempt didn’t quite pan out. So I decided to go back to my favorite, simplistic card style and have a Very Vanilla base with some Night of Navy and Basic Black.

I love the texture of the Old World Paper Embossing Folder. I wanted to feature that on this very minimalistic card. I used Very Vanilla cardstock to cut a standard card base. I cut a card mat to go on top and ran that through my embossing machine using the Old World Paper Embossing Folder. I love how dynamic the texture looks!

I used a Sponge Dauber and my Night of Navy Classic Stampin’ Pad to distress the card mat a bit and give it a little color. I added a globe from the World of Good Memories and More Card Pack. I love how easy these stickers are to apply!

The Basic Black and Gold Foil strip of DSP is from the World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper and makes the perfect accent to place behind my sentiment. I stamped the words in Night of Navy and cut it out using the globe die from the World Map Dies.

To add a little bit of oomph to the inside of the card, I stamped one of the large globes in Night of Navy. I really love decorating the inside of the cards, but often forget! I’m so glad I remembered on this one. It’s going to be a special birthday card for my uncle.

And that’s it! This card came together quickly with just a few materials from the World of Good Suite Collection. I love buying products in the suite collections because I know I can make so many different projects with just a few supplies!
