Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop – Holiday Tags

Posted on

 

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for November 2017. This month our theme is Holiday Tags!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – BFF Stampers or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

Today I am showing you the gorgeous Be Merry Kit in the holiday catalog.  They are beautiful to use as tags for gifts.  They come in two different varieties and make a total of 12 rosettes.  They have a circle to put on the back that you can write a To and From on for your recipient. They are currently on backorder but will be available tomorrow just in time for FREE SHIPPING cyber Monday!!!  These photos do not do them justice.  They are glittery and shiny in real life.

I made this gift bag using two 12 x 12 sheets of DSP from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper.  The colors in the rosettes are Old Olive and Real Red and the Old Olive one matches perfectly with this paper.

The kit is really easy to put together, all you need is a glue gun!

I’m having a class using this kit on December 8th from 7p.m. – 9p.m. at my house.  You can order yours on cyber Monday and get FREE SHIPPING and bring it to the class.  Please use the hostess code: NP7WAQ7M  and I will send you a gift!  Or you can order it from me for $25.

Here’s a video from Stampin’ Up! showing you how easy they are to put together.

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don’t want to miss. Remember that currently, you are at my blog – Jenn Charles – BFF Stampers, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next on the list.

Your BFF,

Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop – Give Thanks

Posted on

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for October 2017. This month our theme is Give Thanks!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – BFF Stampers or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

I’ve decided to make a fall card although today I am mostly grateful for the family and friends surrounding my dad.  My dad lost his wife (my stepmom) a couple weeks ago and so many gathered yesterday to express the love they all had for her.  It was beautiful and made my dad so happy.

Global Stamping Friends – One Year Anniversary Blog Hop

Posted on

Hi BFF’s!!

Can you believe that we have all been hopping together on the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop for one whole year already!  It doesn’t seem that long.  I’m starting to realize that the older I get, the faster time goes.  It’s slipping by.  I’ve been feeling kind of sentimental lately.  However, today is a day of celebration!  A celebration of friendships made over the course of a year because of a common passion of papercrafting.

Stampin’ Up!’s statement of the heart is ‘To Love what we do and Share what we love as we help other Enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments…In this we make a difference’.

I believe we have done this globally by sharing this blog hop together.  I’ve made friends from all over the world!  I would have never done that if I hadn’t started stamping with this company.

So my card is a friendship card.  I want to say THANK YOU to all my new friends I’ve made over the last year and to all my customers who encourage me everyday to keep sharing what I love.

I’ve used the Coffee Cafe stamp set because I love the friendship sentiment in it.  And if you know me, you know I absolutely LOVE coffee!  Everyone loves their coffee made differently, from straight black (that’s me!) to barely brown at all because it’s so flavored up.  I believe all of us are like coffee, completely different in our styles or flavors of crafting but with the same base, Stampin’ Up!  

I used the glossy white cardstock to watercolor my frappacino.  This was my first time using it and I was pleasantly surprised at how fast it dried.  I love the look it gave my ‘plastic’ cup.  It’s hard to see in the photo.

Thank you for hopping along with me today.  Click the NEXT button to visit the creative Rachel.

Your BFF,

Global Stamping Friends – Bloghop 12 – Kids Cards

Posted on

Welcome to another Blog Hop with the Global Stamping Friends, where Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from all over the world come together to post ideas on a monthly theme.  This month the theme is Kids Cards.  I always need kids cards.  I have 4 kids of my own and they are always coming to me last minute asking for a birthday card for a friend.  I have teenagers that always want something “cool” and then I have grade school kids that want something fun.  Today I have made a card using the stamp set No Bones About It because this dinosaur set screams “Kid” to me!

I used a new In-Color Lemon Lime Twist and love it with the Marina Mist and Smoky Slate.

Thanks for hopping by my blog.

Use the Next Arrow to see the fun creation Christine has for you.
