Scrapbooking Global February 2019 Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my blog! I am Denise Cox, Creator at Birdsnest Designs. Thank you for popping by to visit my blog and to check out my contribution to this month’s blog hop.

Earlier in the month I was announced as a Guest Designer for the Scrapbooking Global – Stampin’ UP! group.  I am honoured to have been chosen.  This month I am thrilled to be part of  the Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop with the theme challenge Love & Marriage chosen by Guest Designer Eimear Carvill!

For this theme challenge I immediately thought of the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper by Stampin’ UP! The soft, elegant feel of this paper is perfect for a wedding layout.

I love how the flower images add dimension and that extra touch of pretty to this fabulous Designer Series Paper.


Flowers: Pop of Petals and Falling Flowers bundles

The Mr & Mrs stamp, from the Piece of Cake stamp set, tucked in so nicely amongst the array of flowers and the beautiful pearlized doily. The pretty variegated ribbon adds a lovely touch. I often remind myself that ribbon doesn’t always have to be tied into a bow 😉

Because I adore the sentiment and the font is fabulous … I couldn’t resist adding the Love You More sentiment to the bottom corner.

Paper Pumpkin Test Drive

I am sure that you have heard of the Stampin’ UP! monthly subscription program called Paper Pumpkin. This is a fabulous program that delivers a creative box of happiness right to your doorstep every month. Imagine getting a pretty box of goodies every month that contains all of the supplies to make that month’s featured project(s). Not only do they come with complete instructions but also contain a Stampin’ ink spot and exclusive stamp set each month!!

How does it work?

Each month will surprise you with projects like cards, gift packaging, home décor, and more for just $26.95 a month (shipping included). Talk about happy mail!

Let’s try it together

Join me Monday March 4th @ 7:00pm as we get together and give Paper Pumpkin a test drive 🙂 . I will order each of us the February kit and when we meet on the 4th of March we will have a Paper Pumpkin Party as we create the project(s) included. This is not a monthly obligation or subscription just a chance to come and see what this popular program is all about.

What’s in the Kit?

The surprise will be for you and myself alike … until the kits arrive I don’t know what the project(s) will be…. but I do know that they will include an exclusive stamp set and a Stampin’ ink spot. Here is a little sneak preview of what the February kit is all about.

Valentines Crafting

It’s hard to believe that we are nearing the end of January all ready! This weekend I have been busy crafting for a Valentine’s Day market that I am in on Saturday February 2nd at the Castlegar Complex.

I hope that you have all had a chance to check out the 2019 Occasions Catalogue, it is full of amazingly fun stamping products. My go to Valentine set this weekend has been the Meant to Be bundle and the All My Love Designer series Paper.

All My Love Designer Series Paper (148576)

These products are so versatile. They can be used for Valentine’s Day, Wedding, Anniversary or even just an everyday note to let someone know how much they are loved. Products like these are perfect to add to your craft stash because they can be used time and time again.

I love how this card turned out! Lovely Lipstick, Flirty Flamingo and Crumb Cake are a stunning colour combination and are perfect for a sweet Valentine card. Because I had so much fun making this card I also created a scrapbook layout for my February scrapbook club using products from this same suite.

These products are so much fun to create with because the images, colours and patterns are so inspiring. More importantly, like so many of Stampin’ UP!’s products the co-ordination of the Product Suites makes designing so simple. Less time spent on trying to find matching items and more time creating stunning projects 🙂
