Fairy Celebration

Fairy Celebration, Peekaboo Peach, Watercolor, Stampin' Up!, Papercraft by Jennifer Frost

I love that the Global Design Project are featuring Stampin' Up!'s peach and tangerine tones in their challenge this week.  Orange is such a joyful, warm, vibrant colour!

I am not usually drawn to colour challenges but as soon as I saw this one I thought of the fun Fairy Celebration stamp set and couldn't resist having a play.

I made this card for a new customer who ordered with me for the first time this month.  I cut the words from a couple of sentiments from the set to get the right meaning.

Don't forget, all customers will receive free access to next month's exclusive Crafty Carrot Co Labels of Love online program!

Thrift Store Garland, Let's Get Hopping Round 1

Thrifty Craft Tips, Scrapbooking, Jar of Love, Stampin' Up!, Let's Get Hopping Blog Hop, Papercraft by Jennifer Frost

I've got something special to share with you today!  I have brought together a group of lovely paper artists who are sharing their favourite thrifty tips and tricks as part of the very first "Let's Get Hopping" blog hop.

MY TIP: Salvage those paper scraps!
I love when I've been able to put paper scraps to use on a project!  Not only it is great from a budget perspective but saving those little bits and pieces from the trash is less wasteful too!

For my project today I've chosen a selection of colourful contrasting scraps to make a gorgeous, eclectic garland to embellish this scrapbook page.

I've mixed and match different banner shapes, overlapping them along the top for a fuller look.  Before attaching the pieces to the background, I paper pierced them and added faux stitching using a white gel pen.  This unified the pieces, bringing the banner together nicely.

For a neat finish, I've added tiny bows of bakers twine to either end.

No full sheet of 12"x 12" paper was harmed in the making of this project. Try adding layers of larger panels of leftover patterns into your work.

Labels to Love, The Crafty Carrot Co Blog Hop

Labels to Love, Customer Rewards Program, Video Tutorial, Gift Box, Stampin' Up!, The Crafty Carrot Collective, Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper, Flourishing Thinlets, Papercraft by Jennifer Frost

Welcome to this month's Crafty Carrot Co blog hop where we tease you with pretty projects featuring the Labels To Love stamp set, our product focus for the October interactive rewards program.

Today I'm sharing this lidded box.  It's one of my favourite gift packaging choices!  It's so quick and easy to put together!  But don't take my word for it, see for yourself in this video tutorial right *HERE*.

The box lid is made from the gorgeous Year of Cheer foil specialty paper. This paper needs no embellishing - it is just stunning all of its own.  To allow the pattern to really shine, I kept my gift tag very simple and clean with tones of black, white and silver.  With the exception of the touch of blushing bride in the leaves - this soft pink and copper is a very trendy combination!


We want to help as many people as possible get into the festive spirit!  So we have decided to share the love with customers, fellow demonstrators and the crafting public alike throughout October with a brand new subscription offer!

You can now SUBSCRIBE to join the live online program for just $19AUD.  Click *HERE* to register now!
