Joy of Giving Tag Kit, The Crafty Carrot Co Blog Hop

Next month we run our very last class series for 2019.  Over the last few years, we've chosen to feature project kits at this time of year as they are fabulous, fast and fun - perfect for a crafting fix during the busy festive season.

This November, we are sharing our twist on the Joy of Giving Tag Kit. This kit comes with ready to assemble cardstock pieces, embellishments, adhesives, a stamp set and ink spot for simple projects that will take your gifts from basic to brilliant this gift-giving season.

While the projects that come with the kits are amazing, the Crafty Carrot Co team enjoy putting their own twist on the kit contents so you get lots of alternate project ideas! 

This blog hop is a chance for us to have a little 'warm up' play with the goodies.  For my project, I've created a scrapbook layout.  I've embellished my 12 x 12" Soft Suede base with elements from the kit with a little vanilla card, a retired gold doily and a piece of retired Dashing Along newsprint pattern.

Christmas Collection, The Crafty Carrot Co Blog Hop

It's the Crafty Carrot Co Christmas edition!  We've got ALL your holiday craft needs covered this October.

This program has all the things you love about the Crafty Carrot Co online classes, but with a twist! Each Crafty Carrot tutor will be playing with a different holiday stamp set - that's right, not one but four featured sets!

Not only are we each using a different set, but we will be copying and sharing ideas from each other's tutorials so that you can see how to apply the class ideas to each of the four stamp sets.

So you're essentially getting 16 project ideas for the price of 4!  Don't miss out, subscribe to secure your spot today!

Today's hop projects!   

Today I'm sharing one project two ways. Here is a simple fast version for those creating cards 'just in time'...

and here is a stepped-up variation for those who have more time up their sleeves - so you are covered no matter what your schedule brings this season!

I chose to feature the Dashing Deer stamp set throughout October.  It is a carryover favourite from last year and is available from the Stampin' Up! annual catalogue.  I can't wait to see how my Crafty Carrot Co friends inspire me to get the most out of this set next month.

The Christmas inspiration continues next with the fabulous Krista Frattin.  She's chosen a brand new holiday catalogue favourite to share with you all!  Click the 'next' button below to see more:

For the Men, Fancy Friday Blog Hop

We are sharing ideas for male themed designs today on the Fancy Friday blog hop.

The Sailing Home suite from the new catalogue was an obvious choice for me to feature.  I've been enjoying all things "Sailing Home" this past month as part of the Crafty Carrot Collective (CCCo) August series of online classes.  As a designer with the CCCo, I'd normally not be able to publically share my tutorial design with you. However, as we opened this series up FREE for all to join, I have a rare opportunity to show you my exclusive project from this month!

To make this card, and see many more 'Sailing Home' project ideas, head on over to the Sailing Home Facebook group today!  Once you've joined, you'll find this detailed video tutorial, and more, to watch at your leisure.

And of course, follow this blog hop by clicking the 'next' button below to see what 'For the Men' inspiration my amazingly talented Artisan award-winning Fancy Friday friends have come up with for you!  Next up is the fabulous Krista Frattin
