National Craft Month Blog Hop

Posted on

 

Welcome to the National Craft Month Blog Hop.  You are visiting Jenn Charles with BFF Stampers.  At the end of my post there will be a list of everyone who is crafting with me today.  Please take the time to hop along to the other wonderful crafters and see what they have made for you.

The month of March is full of Birthdays for our family.  We have three birthdays just in our household!  We love March around here. So I’ve made a birthday banner to decorate the house with for the month.  We will be eating a lot of cake and keeping the party going all month long!

I’ve used the colors So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Peekaboo Peach, and Pink Pirouette.  I thought the colors were Spring-y also. 🙂  I think I’ll add Easter to the back of the Birthday one to use it for that party also.

To help me celebrate my birthday this month, I’m having a Birthday Card Bash on March 30th at my house from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.  We will be making a stack of 9 birthday cards for $9. 3 each of 3 designs. RSVP on Facebook by March 27th.

Because it is my birthday, I’m offering a birthday gift to you during the month of March with any order!  That’s right!  I’m giving out birthday gifts for my birthday!  It will be a grab bag sort of fun stuff worth $10.

Thank you for joining me today.  Remember, you are visiting Jenn Charles at BFF Stampers.  Hop along and get your Craft On!

Your BFF,

Jenn




Global Stamping Friends – Color Challenge

Posted on

Welcome to another month of creativity with the Global Stamping Friends.  You are at BFF Stampers with Jenn Charles in California, USA.  This month’s hop is a challenge featuring a Color Theme!

This Color Challenge was hard for me because I was in a springtime frame of mind and couldn’t wrap my mind around these colors.  Then I thought, they’d be beautiful with that Sale-a-Bration stamp set called Beautiful Peacock, but I don’t own that one yet..

So I really had to think on this one and this is what I came up with:

We have many, many birthdays to celebrate this month.  One of them is for a friend of ours who is turning 5!  He is going to love this card.

One of my favorite things to do is to make my background paper with stamps.  I do love our designer series paper but sometimes you need other themes and the best way to do that is to make it yourself.

Here’s a close up of the dino popped up using our dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed my card using the colors, Lemon Lime Twist, Island Indigo, and Early Espresso.  Speaking of Espresso, I think I’ll go make a coffee card for my nieces birthday which is next week.  Stay tuned all month for some exciting birthday offers!

Next up on the hop is Amanda Farlinger.  I can’t wait to see what’s she’s made.  There’s a list below of all the participants if you’d like to hop around. Happy Hopping!

Your BFF,

Jenn

Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop – Featuring Stampin’ Up! Animals!

Posted on

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for February 2018. This month our theme is Lions, Tigers & Bears, Oh My! Cards Featuring Animals.  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Jenn Charles @ BFF Stampers or may have come from the person previous to me on 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.

Here is my card.  I love the pool party with the silver and white.  I used the new Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Color Me Happy Stamp Set.

Stampin’ Up! has overdone themselves with the most recent release of three brand new Sale-A-Bration items! My favorite is this designer series paper.  It has Gold, Silver and Rose Gold accents and you can color it with the Stampin’ Blends!

My animals I picked are the birds from the Color Me Happy stamp set.  This set is so fun!  It’s all about coloring with the blenders.

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 on my blog – Jenn Charles @ BFF Stampers, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next on the list.  If you’d like to make this card, the list of products I used are at the bottom of the post.


Valentine treats and other Stampin’ Up! stuff

Posted on

Happy Valentine’s Day!

My kids have their parties at school today so of course we made valentines to pass out to everyone.  My daughter Emily made hers from the January Paper Pumpkin.  I had her use a different ribbon because I wanted to hoard keep the ribbon that came with the kit for myself.  Metallic Edge ribbon, yes please! It’s so beautiful!  Here’s the kit and what is looks like according to the directions.  The refill kit is still available for purchase for Paper Pumpkin subscribers.  I think it could be used for any occasion.

Here’s what Emily did with hers.

      

We not only used the stamp set from this Paper Pumpkin but also used the stamp set from last year’s Valentine Paper Pumpkin set. I liked the saying: For an Amazing Friend.  This kit had 16 Valentines in it so we had to use more than one kit.  With the extras, I made gifts for my Awana kids for tonight.  We also altered the Paper Pumpkin box for her Valentine holder at school.

Alex made these easy Valentines for his Kindergarten class.

This morning was super busy packing all our valentine’s and party snacks and doing Emily’s hair.

After I dropped them off at school, I stopped by Duncan Donuts to buy these treats that will be waiting for them (if I don’t eat them first!).  I do not feed my kids donuts before school because I like their teachers and I want their teachers to continue to like me!  LOL

Paper Pumpkin is celebrating it’s 5 year anniversary!  I’m so excited to see the 5 year anniversary box with a FREE gift in it.  When you purchase a 3-month Paper Pumpkin subscription during Sale-A-Bration, you can receive a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!  It’s a win-win!

Starting on the 16th, three new must-have Sale-A-Bration items are coming out. Take a look here.  Here are a few samples I have already:

 

After the 16th, you can get these SAB items for FREE with a $50 or $100 order BUT if you can’t wait to have them, you can purchase them now in a demonstrator kit for $99.  You will receive $125 worth of product of your choice for just $99 in addition to FREE shipping!  You can add the new items in your kit and not have to wait to earn them, but only through the 15th!  Sign up here.

I pray you all have a fantastic Valentine’s Day.  We can’t wait to see what Daddy brings home for all of us!  Didn’t I tell you, Valentine’s Day is all about my expectations! LOL

Keep Crafting!
Your BFF,
Jenn
