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

Use up that DSP, Let's Get Hopping Blog Hop #23


I'm always on the look out for ways to put designer series papers (dsp) to good use. The right pattern, in the right layout, can create the perfect base for deceptively quick to put together card.

This layout here for instance, would work with any of those bigger, bolder patterns in your stash.  It really showcases the beautiful imagery in the papers, while a few simple embellishments and a single embossed sentiment give the maker a well-deserved sense of creative accomplishment!

I'm sharing this project today for the Let's Get Hopping Blog Hop. It's our challenge this month to inspire you to pull out your stash of retired dsp and put them to good use. Click the 'next' link below to visit  Linda's blog for more ideas to do just that!
