No Matter the Weather for APPT Blog Hop

APPT headerIt’s time for the March APPT Blog Hop! This month’s kit is called No Matter the Weather and it’s designed to make 12 sweet weather themed cards. It also came with an extra stamp set called Spring Splash. Today we are sharing alternate projects made with this kit. I can’t wait to see what everyone on the hop has created!

I decided to make a card and an open top gift box for a friend. The current situation in the world makes almost all of us need a little boost. I want my friend to know I’m there for her…with a bottle of hand soap (you can barely see the top of the pump bottle amongst the tissue paper.)

I’ll Bee Yours for the PPP Blog Hop 01-2020

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop

It’s time for the PPP Blog Hop 01-2020! This month’s kit is called I’ll Bee Yours and it makes adorable note cards and treat bags. Of course, we are sharing alternate projects with you today, so you can see just how versatile the kit is. I used the kit to adorn a Whisper White card and a Mini Pizza Box. And the sentiment is, you guessed it, a pun! You know how I like puns.

I cut a hole in the card front and filled it with vellum for a soft, ethereal feel. I used the cut out piece on the box. No waste!

Bone Appétit for APPT Blog Hop 09-2019

APPT headerIt’s time for the APPT Blog Hop for September! This month’s kit is called Bone Appétit, and it makes adorable treat boxes. I used the kit to decorate one of the boxes a little differently from the directions in the Bone Appétit kit, and to make a card that mimics the dots on the box. I love the intricate die cut “webs” of bones. And the die cut skeletons are so cute! The one on my card is holding a sign with the greeting, “Happy Halloween,” which is just one of several great sentiments in the Bone Appétit stamp set. I’ll be using this stamp set a lot, since our Halloween party theme this year is Bones!

I’m sorry there have been several days in the past couple weeks when I didn’t get a blog post done. If you’ve followed me for a while, you know that during this time of year our house is consumed with Halloween party prep. There’s little room in the whole place to walk because of all the boxes and totes packed full of skeletons, skulls, bones, etc., as well as other Halloween goodies. There’s a lot to do and not a lot of time left to do it. So please forgive me if I’m not as present online as usual in the next few weeks.

Come to Gather Gift Bag for Autumn IRBH

inKing Royalty Blog Hop, September 2019, Autumn

It’s time for the Inking Royalty Blog Hop for September! This month’s theme in Autumn. And what could be more Autumnal than beautifully colored leaves? For my project, I used products from the Come to Gather Suite to decorate a gift bag from last month’s Paper Pumpkin kit. (You can see another project I made using these bags here.) From the suite, I used the Gather Together bundle (Gather Together stamp set and Gathered Leaves Dies) and Come to Gather Designer Series Paper.

I was going to use the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack as well, but I got so carried away with the leaves, I didn’t think it needed it. I used each embossed leaf die (3 in the set) to cut two each of four colors – and I used 18 of the 24 leaves I cut! Guess I just couldn’t stop until I had a big leaf pile! Doesn’t it make you want to jump in and scatter them?

Be sure to hop all the way around to all the stops. You don’t want to miss any of the great projects from this talented group!
