Pieces and Patterns - The Crafty Carrot Co. Blog Hop

Pieces & Patterns - Susan Wong for The Crafty Carrot Co.

Pieces and Patterns - love at first sight! Those little animals and generic phrases are perfect for everyday cards with a young, fresh vibe. SO it goes without saying, I'm thrilled the gals all agreed on making it our Crafty Carrot Co. product focus for JULY.

I often say your skills and what you learn through our Crafty Carrot Co. tutorials are totally transferable between cards, traditional layouts and even pocket memory keeping. Keep scrolling to see how I've applied pretty much the same detailing to all three forms. Easy concept right? You can totally nail it too!

Note - our Crafty Carrot shopping list does not include the Pick A Pattern Designer Series Paper. More details on that below but it's an optional extra k?

Touches of Texture - The Crafty Carrot Co Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to another Crafty Carrot Co. Blog Hop! Right now we're in the qualifying purchase period for our June customer rewards programme. We can't wait to share some fresh new ideas with you using the Touches of Texture stamp set. If you're sad that Gorgeous Grunge is retiring this set is a really great carryover alternative!

Want to know more about the Crafty Carrot Collective? Click here: http://craftycarrotcollective.blogspot.com

On my card today I've used the good old emboss resist technique. I heat embossed the lacy stamp in white onto Shimmery White card stock and washed over it with Calypso Coral. Add some fun elements from the Cupcakes and Carousels Embellishment kit and you're away!

Work of Art - Fancy Friday Blog Hop

Welcome to another Fancy Friday blog hop! We're a group of past and present Stampin' Up! Artisans who love to bring you inspiration each month. Today we're all about he A-R-T. The challenge was to make something without words or sentiments - just pretty to look at! Kinda hard right? But fun too!

I used the All Year Long Project Life Accessory Pack (pssst it's retiring soon) to make a mini sampler. The base is 8x8" and each little square is one of the 2x2" squares from the pack. 





Supplies Used:
Stamps: Awesomely Artistic
Inks: Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Versamark
Papers: Whisper White Thick Cardstock
Tools/Accessories: All Year Long Accessory Pack, Basic Jewels Rhinestones, Silver Metallic Thread, Linen Thread, Delicate White Doilies, Silver Embossing Powder, Heat Tool



Our Crafty Carrot Co. May rewards programme is going to be E-P-I-C. Our tutorials and videos will  feature the Nailed It stamp set but since it's selling out fast in some markets, we're also going to bring you other projects using other stamp sets in our stashes. Double the inspiration! Shop now!

Nailed It Blog Hop - The Crafty Carrot Co.

Welcome to another Crafty Carrot Co. blog hop! Our May rewards programme is going to be epic! Have you bought in yet? Learn more here: http://craftycarrotcollective.blogspot.com/

Nailed It Baby Scrapbook Pages - Susan Wong for The Crafty Carrot Co.

This May, not only will our tutorials and live videos feature the Nailed It stamp set, but you'll be seeing LOTS of cool ideas for how our designs and techniques work for other stamp sets in our stash. We're aware that Nailed It is currently on the retiring list, so if it has sold out in your market, you can still shop the retiring sale to your heart's content and get lots out of our May programme.

For my Nailed It project I wanted to show you a way this can be for little boys too! Paired with some Soft Sky and a bit of cheek, I hope you love these pages as much as I do! Disclaimer - no babies were sawed - only seen! ;)
