Ideas Blog Hop - July Holiday

Hello Crafty Friends!   

Welcome to another blog hop!   The team has been cooking up some fresh new ideas and tutorials to share for July.

Of course I'm refering to the IDEAS (International Demos Exciting Artistic Stampin') blog hop!  

Our theme for July is July Holiday and we're focusing on the new and current Sale a Bration brochure; however, we are able to use products from the current catalogs.

I decided to use the very aptly named Amazing Phrasing stamp set and the Rings of Love Designer Series Paper from the Sale a Bration brochure. I love both!

Here's our collage, which is a sneak peak from each designer in this edition of the tutorial bundle.  See it here:

Here's my project contribution for July:

Each tutorial features at least one card or sometimes a 3D project, some include multiples. It is chock full of inspiring designs from different designers!  

Would you like a copy of the instructions for these projects to use for your personal use, or even to use in your classes? Contact me to find out how to purchase the tutorial bundle or earn it for FREE!  

If you would like a copy of the written tutorial, here are some ways to get it:

A Fish & a Wish FB Live June 30, 2022


This past Thursday, I made the an easy shaker card paired together with 
A Fish & a Wish stamp set/bundle. 
The little "fishies" in this set fill my heart with joy.  Aren't they the cutest?  
And I adore the way the fish turned out. I used a dauber to add more than one 
color blue to the fish. So. Much. Fun.
The bundle (158993) comes with the stamp set and a fish builder punch 
to punch out the little fish.

Here's a close up of the sequins. Very nice, huh?  If you don't have these sequins, 
you need them in your stash. They are the For Everything Fancy Sequins (159187) and 
there are three containers with three different color sequins. 

Yummy, right?

The shaker card is easy to duplicate. If you'd like to see me create it, 
you can catch the video replay here:  


 Follow me on Facebook to see Live crafting on Thursday evenings at 7:15p.
