Back 2 Basics - Let's Get Hopping


Hearts Come Home Stamps + Coffee Break Papers - Susan Wong


Stamps, inks and paper are all you need to create something meaningful and beautiful. Often, as Stampin' Up! demonstrators, we get lost in aaaall the pretty things. But we started as beginners too and there's something really special about the simplicity of a basic project right? So, Jennifer Frost and the team of Let's Get Hopping enthusiasts are bringing you a Back 2 Basics themed hop this week.

Here are my simple cards made from Krista Frattin's class kits leftovers box! The Coffee Break designer series paper turns Christmassy! What do you reckon?!

And if you follow me on social media you might have seen this baby too. Thought I'd add it in because a little colour and some paper go a long way. If you love colouring, you just have to check out our brand new Stampin' Blends! Stampin' Up! has nailed it with this range of alcohol markers - I love them!

Tabs for Everything - The Crafty Carrot Co.


  

Many of you know that at the beginning of this month, we Crafty Carrot Co. gals (minus Valerie) were in snowy Canada together!! It was such a dream doing a bunch of touristy things together plus my live class for this month's Watercolor Christmas program and of course lots more stamping! We also had a good long meeting to nut through plans for 2018. We look forward to rolling out some fun new things for next year - that all begins with the Tabs for Everything product focus for January! This set and the coordinating Circle Tab punch are designed to go with journals and planners so let's get organised for the year together! More info on how to join our program below.

Because I like to work smarter, not harder, this set of 10 cards were also my swaps to give to friends on my big Canada trip. See a bit more of that on my Instagram - @stampinsusanwong. They went down a treat - partly because I also took Whittaker's Artisan chocolates?? In any case - it was an appropriate stamp set because they're ALL Awesomely Artistic!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Awesomely Artistic
Inks: Lemon Lime Twist, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Stazon Black, Versamark, Pool Party Marker (background splatter)
Papers: Whisper White, Shimmery White, Basic Black, Perfect Days Memories & More Card Pack
Tools/Accessories: White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Heat Tool, Linen Thread, Lemon Lime Twist 1/4" Ombre Ribbon, Gold Mini Sequin Trim, Delicate White Doilies, Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Gold Wink of Stella Pen (retired)
