Enjoy the Little Things in Life July Video Blog Hop - A Little Wild



Hi Crafters!

Thank you for joining us for our July Enjoy the Little Things in Life Design Team Video Blog Hop. There are some really fun themes coming up, so make sure you join us each month. This month, we have made invitation themed projects & thought this was really fun & outside the box! 

I have made some little tags with the A Little Wild stamp set & matching Little Loves Framelits Dies. You can save 10% when you buy these in a bundle & you have to get them! Oh my gosh they are totally adorable & great for so many things other than tags! xx



I've stamped the little bear in Chocolate Chip ink & the little bee hive & bees in Crushed Curry, then I've die cut them with the matching framelits on my Big Shot. I've stamped both sides of the bee hive. I've also used the Starburst Punch for the circle to put my invite details on.


I've used the Crushed Curry & Marina Mist Stampin' Write Marker to colour in the little bee on the bear & write details on the back. The whole lot is tied together with some Linen Thread & Gold Metallic Thread.


I've used some washi tape to create the Come for a Sweet sentiment stamped in Marina Mist. My nephew left his Bunny at our house after his sleep over on the weekend, so we've used one of the tags to accompany Bunny home in the post & to thank him for coming to stay & play xx


Here's a little video of how I put them together. 

I hope you have enjoyed the little tag invites I made for this hop. We have an amazing team this month, so make sure you hop around & check out everyone's projects. You don't want to miss any!

Stampin Dreams Blog Hop - Lots of Lovely


Hi Crafters!

Welcome to the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop for July! You are currently visiting Jessie Holton from Australia. This month, the theme is CASEing (Copy & Selectively Edit) the 2017 Annual Catalog! So we have all chosen a picture of a card or project from the catalog & used it to inspire our own projects. We might have been inspired by the stamps, colours, layout or theme.

This is the card from the catalog which I am casing from the Whole Lot of Lovely Suite:





And here is my very simplistic take on it that I used for Maddie's party last weekend. I love the simple layout that makes it easy for beginners or advanced card makers to get a great result! And the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper is so beautiful, you really want to let it be the star. 


I've used the Pear Pizazz leaf print paper with the Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon & ink. The sentiment is from the Lots of Lovely stamp set & doesn't it just fit perfectly in the Pretty Label Punch! I've added a nest of Copper Thread & some copper sequins from the Metallics Sequins Assortment for bling. The sentiment is propped up on Dimensionals.

I've also done some simple double & triple stamped flowers & leaves on the inside & I just love this sweet sentiment, perfect for so many different occasions. All of these images & the sentiment are from the Lots of Lovely stamp set & have been inked in Pool Party & Pear Pizazz.

I hope the projects you've seen here on my blog today have inspired you & brightened your day. You are currently visiting Jessie Holton from Australia. Please see the list below & hop through the list to see all our projects from all over the globe! You don't want to miss any!

Global Design Project #GDP096 - Dragonfly Dreams

Hi Crafters!

Today I'm playing along with the Global Design Project Case the Designer challenge - Casing Tanja Kolar. I have had fun with this one & I hope you like what I've got for you! xx


I've done a pretty close case of Tanya's card cos I thought it was really pretty. I have used a Thick Whisper White cardstock base with a layer of Fabulous Foil Acetate - it's silver on one side & gold on the other. Just make sure you take off the protective layer so it's super glossy.


I've used the two largest Stitched Shapes square dies to cut a piece of Soft Sky & Shimmery White. I've also used the smaller Dragonfly from the Detailed Dragonflies dies on Soft Sky & coloured over with Clear Wink of Stella. And I wrapped some Silver Metallic Thread round the smaller square.


I have stamped the inside to match with the Hello Friend stamp set (image/Soft Sky) & the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set (sentiment/Smoky Slate). I hope you have enjoyed my card today. I have also made a short video of me trying to make this card on Facebook Live with baby in tow - you can watch it here :P xx

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Jay Soriano - Lovely Words


Hi Crafters!

Some exciting news for you today! We are CASE-ing (Copy & Selectively Edit) the ah-mazing JAY SORIANO, who is also joining us on this hop! Exciting!

I hope you find great inspiration from all the projects in this hop. You may be starting the hop here at my blog (Jessie Holton) or you may have come from the previous person on the list. Be sure to click on the next person in the list to continue your blog hop adventure casing Jay's work.

Here's Jay's card which I have chosen to case. I really love how this sentiment panel pops against the diagonal one behind it. I love that Jay has used black for the panel, too. It's really bold.


And here is my take on it. I have used the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper (DSP) with a strip of Black Shimmer Ribbon & coordinating cardstock in Lemon Lime Twist, Emerald Envy, Berry Burst & Fresh Fig. I have cut a circle of Basic Black cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Dies.

I have then layered the Silver Foil with the Hugs circle die from the Lovely Words Dies with a slightly larger circle from the Layering Circle Dies & put them through the Big Shot at the same time. I have used both portions of the Hugs Die cuts so I get two sentiments from each die cut.


I used the new Adhesive Sheet on the back of the Silver Foil before I cut it & it made life soooo much easier just having to peel away the backing & stick the dies onto the black circles. And I didn't get any glue on the front of the Silver Foil! Hooray! I found the Precision Plate made it easier to I've added a bit of Silver Metallic Thread & the Metallic Sequins Assortment for a bit of bling. My sentiments are propped up on Dimensionals.


On the inside of this card, I have used one of the sentiments from the Big on Birthdays stamp set & I have inked it up in Lemon Lime Twist all over, then 2/3 Emerald Envy & 1/3 Night of Navy. This is a fun Ombre technique for lazybones like me haha! When using this technique, it's important to start with the lightest colour & work your way to the darkest one. You also want to use colours that would naturally & easily blend into each other. To see this technique in action, you can watch my Facebook Video here.




I hope you have enjoyed my cards today & that you can hop around the rest of the crew & enjoy our cases on Jay's work. Thanks for joining us Jay, you were a lot of fun to case!
