Good evening and welcome to our January edition of the NC Demos Blog Hop!  We are SO glad you are here!  If you already stopped by to see Frances Wagner’s awesome project, you know that our January theme is Tools of the Trade.  Our challenge was to choose from all the awesome Stampin’ Up! tools to create our project.
We are a small, but mighty group this month, but I know you will still be inspired and will definitely want to add some, if not all, of the products we are using to your crafting stash!  Of course, you will get the added bonus of getting a selection of FREE products with your Sale-A-Bration qualifying order of $50 or more, before tax and shipping!
So, my original plan was to share a project using our awesome new Stampin’ Brayer, but that just wasn’t meant to be as my day, which wasn’t bad, didn’t go quite as planned.  So, I will share a project with the Brayer at a later date.
I am going to share what I think is a fantastic, fun, quick and easy project that  the ladies who signed up for my Cute Cards Quick Kits at next weekend’s Scrappy Stampers’ Getaway will be making.  This project lets you make four cards with ease and uses our amazing Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, the Patchwork Pieces Dies, and Heartfelt Hexagon Punch.  Of course, I as always, used my Paper Trimmer, Simply Scored, Paper Snips, trusty Bone Folder and the Silicone Craft Mat to keep my workspace tidy and sticky free while using the Multipurpose Glue to put all my little pieces of Flight & Airy DSP together!
Besides getting to use all the amazing tools I love that I got to use three of the fantabulous FREE products from the 2024 SAB offerings!  The Flight & Airy DSP, the Heartfelt Hellos stamp set and the Softly Sophisticated Embossing Folder.  You definitely want to add these to your stash!
Here are the measurements if you would like to make this project yourself!

  • Soft Sea Foam 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2
  • Basic White 5 x 3 3/4 and 4 1/2 x 3 1/4
  • Garden Green 4 3/4 x 3 1/2
  • 4 pieces of Flight & Airy DSP 4 x  5
  • Boho Blue 2023-2025 Jute Trim 10 inches
Thank you for letting me share my project with you!  Please contact me f you have questions, want to order any of these awesome tools or products for yourself or want to share your own project.  I would love to help you!
I am all done for tonight, but come hop along with me over to see Jo Anne Hewins’ project.  I know it will be totally awesome as always!
Stay Safe & Crafty!
