Fav Occasions Product, Fancy Friday Blog Hop

Today, a group of Artisan Design Team award winners, past and present, are joining together to share with you their favourite product from the 2019 Occasions catalogue. 

For me, it's the Amazing Life bundle.  This gorgeous stamp set is versatile, has pretty fonts and lots of outlines for some easy coloring in.  Best of all, it's been bundled with the Rectangle Stitched framelits!  I'm a sucker for stitching and this huge pack of framelits is perfect for cardmaking and scrapbooking alike.

For my project today, I pulled out the Stamparatus. Inspired by Charlet Mallett, I laid out the stamps on my Stamparatus plates and stamped the design three times - each time on a different coloured cardstock panel.  Then I cut those panels down to create a fast, three-at-the-same time, colour block effect set of cards.  Colour blocking is SO trendy right now!  

Of course, I couldn't resist testing out what these would look like stepped up a little so I've added touches and created a 'Casual' and 'Avid' crafter variation to share with you all.  This is a 'FANCY' friday blog hop after all. 



I hope you've enjoyed this little card set!

Geared Up Garage, The Crafty Carrot Co Blog Hop


The Crafty Carrot Co are sharing projects featuring the 'Geared Up Garage' Suite today.  These will be the star of our exclusive online classes next month!

Here at home, we are at the tail end of a long, hot, hectic Summer.  The kids have returned back to school and I'm reigniting my creativity with a little scrapbooking. The imagery in this suite fit wonderfully with this moment during our home renovation.  My husband is a carpenter by trade and is doing most of the work himself.  Our daughter has been fascinated by all the tools and has enjoyed spending time 'working' alongside her Dad.

Documenting this memory was particularly nice for me this week.  Our renovation progress is slow as we are fitting the improvements in around work and financial commitments.  It was reassuring to compare where we were a year ago when these pictures were taken, to where we are at now!


Notice the sentiment "to those who inspire us"?  This comes from the Sale-a-bration 'Part of my Story' stamp set.  Get in touch to learn more about how to this stamp set for FREE this month! The Crafty Carrot Co love a good set of versatile, beautiful sentiments and this set is no exception.  It really compliments and increases the versatility of the Geared Up Garage goodies.

Amazing Life, The Crafty Carrot Co Blog Hop


Hello!  Welcome!  Today I'm sharing my very first projects for 2019.  We are in the middle of our Summer School holidays at the moment so there is very little crafting happening at my house.  It's all cuddly sleep-ins, books & games, swimming, walks, late nights and just spending time together with my littlies before school starts back up - and I'm loving it!

I did, however, carve out some time over the weekend to put together these projects for today's Crafty Carrot Co Amazing Life blog hop.  The Crafty Carrot Co is a team of multi-award winning stampers who teach online craft classes.  Every month we choose just one Stampin' Up! product focus so all our participants can really make the most of their supplies - no more buying a stamp set and using it once!


Throughout February, all our classes will feature the Amazing Life stamp set.  This set was a gift to demonstrators around the world who attended the Stampin' Up! OnStage events last November.  It's a fabulous fit for the Crafty Carrot community with its multiple sentiments that suit any number of occasions.


Of course, right now Stampin' Up! have their biggest sale of the year, Sale-a-bration! I definitely suggest you take full advantage of the FREE product on offer.  The Crafty Carrot Co suggest the Botanical Butterfly patterned papers and/or the pack of gorgeous Organdy Ribbons.  Learn more about how you can get these products FREE *HERE* at my online Stampin' Up! store. Don't forget to use my host code (GDGSTZKQ) while ordering so you can receive all the February Crafty Carrot tutorials completely FREE also!


In my last class of 2018, my lovely class friends put in a special request to see the Gift Bag Punch Board in action.  I made this sweet little gift packaging in with the Botanical Butterflies papers to share with them when classes come back in February 2019.  Learn more about joining me in person in class *HERE*.

The Crafty Carrot Co online classes are really a fabulous way to stay inspired, boost your creativity and really make the most of your crafting supplies.  But don't take my word for it!  Check out our facebook reviews to see what participants are loving about their Crafty Carrot Co experiences.  Here is what Tricia Williams shared:
