Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Sarah Fleming


Welcome and thank you for joining me in a special Crazy Crafters team blog hop.

We are hopping with a special guest - The super talented Sarah Fleming from the United States.

The theme of this blog hop was to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) one of Sarah's cards.


Here is the card of Sarah's that I chose to CASE:


To checkout Sarah's card in more detail click here.


Here is my version:



I really liked the layout of Sarah's card, but decided to create my version using items from the Painted Autumn Suite in the current Holiday Catalogue.

My colour scheme was inspired by the colours from the Painted Autumn designer series paper pack and consists of Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Garden Green & Very Vanilla. I added in Wild Wasabi for the lighter green on my leaves.

The sentiment comes from the Painted Harvest stamp set, but I the die cut shape and outline stamp come from the Rose Wonder stamp set and co-ordinating Rose Garden thinlits. My sentiment shape is adhered with some new mini dimensionals.

I added a couple of Cajun Craze enamel shapes to finish off my card. Hope you like it.

Ink it! Stamp it! Design Team Blog Hop | Theme: Holiday Catalogue


Welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Blog Hop. This month we will be sharing projects inspired by the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. The full line up below will guide you through all the projects and we'd love to hear from you on what your favourite product or suite is from the Holiday Catalogue so far.

One of my favourites from the Holiday Catalogue is the Quilted Christmas Suite of products. It is such a versatile bundle as you can make more than Christmas Cards with it, as shown with my project. Hope you like it.

Here is my card:




Don't forget to improvise if you don't have something on hand. I didn't have any Silver Foil for my sewing needle, so I used the shiny box that my toothpaste came in.




Thank you so much for joining us today. We hope you'll join us again next month to see our projects showcasing a paper crafting technique.

Don't forget to continue the hop all the way around to see what the amazing Ink it! Stamp it! Design Team have come up with.
