National Craft Month Blog Hop – Getting Crafty

Hey there crafters and stampers! March is National Craft Month. In 1994 the Craft & Hobby Association created the wonderful month we know as craft month. It was designed to help people rediscover and learn about the wonderful world of crafting and all its many benefits.

Stampin’ Up is not just about cards.

I am joining in with some fellow Stampin’ Up demonstrators in a blog hop that will focus on crafty items you can create with Stampin’ Up supplies. You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog Ginny Harrell @ Celebrate the Journey or Tricia Butts, the person previous to me on the list. If you get off track at any time, don’t worry. Just surf down to the full line up below and follow along from blog to blog..

While I love creating cards I often like to create little boxes, bags, and decorative items.

Today I am sharing these small corkboard bulletin boards. I made these for my friends as Christmas gifts and they loved them. They work well in your kitchen for shopping lists or phone numbers.  I think one in a baby’s room would be real sweet for tracking feedings or growth notes. I used retired paper for the Christmas gifts but decided to update and make them again using current DSP and stamps.

To make these corkboard bulletin boards you start with a pack of three cork trivets from Ikea. Trace around one of the boards on the back of your DSP and hand cut the circle. Use your paper cutter to cut the circle in half. Use Tear & Tape to adhere the DSP to your corkboard. Adhere ribbon or lace to the corkboard and add your stamped images.

I found these hangers at a big box hardware store. They just push into the back of the corkboard.

I love how these turned out. Make sure you hop on to Merit Brown. I am sure she will have something fun to share.

Product List

Have you tried Brusho?

There are so many new and exciting products in the 2018 Occasions Catalog. It is actually hard to decide which products are my favorites.

One product I have not had time to try is Brusho Color Crystals. These amazing crystals create some stunningly beautiful backgrounds and images. I promise it will be something I try as soon as we return from vacation!

I am sharing the Stampin’ Up! Video with you so you can see for yourself how much fun these crystals can be.

 Have you tried them yet? I hear they are addictive.

Truly Tailored Day 5

Day 5 of Truly Tailored brings us to another Dapper Day card. I love that saying – “Have a Dapper Day.” It reminds me of bow ties, tuxedos, and Model T Fords!

The sentiment, simple layout and bow tie make this an easy card to duplicate.

I like the three small squares at the bottom showing off the lovely designer series paper. What do you think?
