Blog Hop - Sneak Peek

 
Thank you for joining us for this month's Crazy Crafters Blog Hop.  If you've been following the hop, you should have arrived here from the very talented Angela Lorenz. 

We are all very excited about all the lovely new products in the brand new Annual Catalogue and this Hop is all about giving you a sneak peek of what's in store for us all from 2nd June when the 2015-2016 Catalogue comes into effect.  We hope that you will love the new products as much as we do and that you enjoy our previews and ideas.  If you've already got your copy of the new catalogue you'll understand just why we're so excited! 

I found it really difficult to settle on an item to showcase because I love so many of them!  In the end I decided to make two cards using the Sprinkles of Life stamp set which is just so versatile.  With same set (and without trying very hard!) it can make cupcakes (with our without candles or sprinkles), clouds, rain, ice cream in a cone, a basket of flowers, a basket of apples, a tree (with or without leaves, flowers, fruit) - you get the picture!  There is also a matching punch, just to make it even easier to create the tops of the cupcakes, tree, rain drops etc.

Cupcakes by The Cakery & Co
This first card is a box full of cupcakes for my friend Emma, the Cupcake Queen, who bakes the most beautiful cakes and cupcakes and for whom I'm happy to taste test anytime!  She's super-busy at the moment making beautiful daffodil cupcakes for a Biggest Morning Tea fundraiser.

Sprinkles of Life Magic Card showing the magic!
The second card is a "magic card".  There are lots of tutorials for magic cards and the only thing I've done a little differently is to place the magic bit onto the front of a normal card (made by folding a piece of A5 cardstock in half) because I like cards that open.  I used three of the new 2015-2017 In Colours: Tip Top Taupe, Delightful Dijon and Watermelon Wonder.

Stampin' Up! are donating $3 to Ronald McDonald House with every Sprinkles of Life stamp set sold.

Just want to send a warm "hello" to our fellow Crazy Crafter, Em Robinson, who sadly was unable to join in the hop this month but who is avidly following it.

I hope you've enjoyed your visit!  Please click on the "next" button below to hop on to see the great ideas of the next Crazy Crafter - the amazing Angela Westland.

    1. Thanks Patty - that's an interesting idea re the bookmark! You should definitely have a go at a box card - I think you'll find they're much easier than you'd think!

    1. Thanks Kylie - on both counts. I'd like to take credit for the Magic Card idea - but I really can't! There are several great tutorials "out there" that I've simply adapted a bit.
