Be Inspired Blog Hop


Welcome to the Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop. It's a short and sweet hop tonight, but I'm sure you will still be completely inspired to craft afterwards!

You may have just arrived here from my lovely friend Maike Ulbrich from Germany. If you are starting here please make sure you hit the next button at the bottom of this post and hop all the way around. 

The theme for this hop is 'Be Inspired by Circles'.

I wanted to share the room gifts I made my team girls who went to the recent Stampin' Up! Onstage event - however, in true 'Louise' style I packed them before taking a photo! They were similar to the box below and I made this one for a little surprise I made my bestfriend, Mehgan (from Phoenix, AZ) - I know she will appreciate this sweet monogrammed box - well she better! lol

The Mini Pizza Box is a new product in the Holiday Catalogue on page 44. They are 3x3" and so stinkin' cute! They are also food safe - great for a handmade biscuit or even a piece of salted caramel slice....(cough, cough...FYI for those looking to bring me anything for Christmas ;))

Next up to 'Be Inspired' by is my talented and super sweet friend, Janneke de Jong from the Netherlands.

 


If you live in Australia I would love to be your demonstrator! You can click on any of the items below and purchase them from my ONLINE SHOP

Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop


Welcome to the Artisan Design Team Blog Hop. You may have just arrived here from my lovely friend Kimberly Van Diepen from the US.

Today the Artisan Design Team are highlighting the STAMPIN' BLENDS! Yes, I'm yelling.....I'm just so excited!!! These NEW premier alcohol markers are high-quality with a dual-tip that come in 12 of Stampin’ Up!’s exclusive colours, each with a light and dark shade. I promise you can be a true colouring artist with these fabulous markers! 

I used the Ready for Christmas stamp set and coordinating Christmas Staircase Thinlits Dies from page 6-7 of the Holiday Catalogue. I do love that little Dachshund (or 'sausage dog' as it's known in the Sharp house! lol) - however it does look a little like our Jack-Russel and she would definitely be getting into the Christmas cookies if given half the chance!  

Stampin' Blends Features
  • Add just the right amount of colour where you need it with the brush tip or fine-point.
  • Each colour (except Ivory and Bronze) has a light and dark shade marker, available individually or in a combo pack.
  • We have done in-house testing for evaporation and life testing and are really happy with the results, so you can feel confident sharing them with your customers.
  • Press fit seal prevents air from entering the barrel and causing evaporation.
  • The nestable lids are easy to keep track of and have a tight fit for long-lasting colour.

Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome to the Artisan Design Team Blog Hop. You may have just arrived here from my lovely friend Kimberly Van Diepen from the US.

Today the Artisan Design Team are highlighting the new Count My Blessings or Gourd Goodness stamp set from page 50 of the Holiday Catalogue. In Australia at the moment we are enjoying Spring, so I decided to use the Count My Blessings stamp set and watercolour the beautiful flower. 

Count My Blessings

I stamped the flower onto Vellum Cardstock with Versamark Ink and embossed the White Emboss Powder. I then watercoloured the flowers with an Aqua Painter and ink from Melon Mambo and Pear Pizzazz. The full list of products used is added below.

Global Design Project - Colour Challenge

It's Monday, which means another challenge over at the Global Design Project. This week we have a colour challenge and even though colour challenges are not generally my favourite, I love the elegance of the black, gold and green combination - and the Design Team have created stunning projects for you to be inspired by!  
The black and white check paper from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper collection is one of my favourites and paired with the Gold and Old Olive it's a winner - don't you think?!
The candles are from the the MERRY PATTERNS HOST PROMOTION stamp set. And YES, I stamped the candles onto Gold Foil Cardstock and hand snipped the gold flames (Brain King will be proud of me!) Until the 31st October Stampin' Up! have a fabulous host promotion. If you host a workshop or spend $450AUD (before shipping and handling) you will qualify and earn this stamp set for free!
Now head over to the Global Design Project and see what the amazing Design Team have in store for you this week.
