September Paper Crafting Blog Hop

Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the September Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Sue McDonald's blog (great project, Sue!). Welcome one and all.

The theme this month is punches!! How lucky can I be? I have been featuring cards and projects using punches exclusively ever since we began the lockdown for the pandemic since many of my class-attending, now virtual class-attending customers prefer punches over dies.

For my cards today I am using 4 basic punches (2 each card for a layering effect) that I highly recommend everyone should have in their collection, plus the Pine Tree Punch, which coordinates with the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set (AC p. 60). The first card uses the 2 1/4" and 2" circle punches (AC p. 165) for the sentiment build, and the second card uses the Heart Punch Pack which is a current bundle too (AC p. 168, Heartfelt Bundle).
Card #1

Card #2

The DSP is Heartwarming Hugs from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog (MC p. 9). Super adorable patterned paper - it was too hard to resist for me!

As always, thank you for stopping by my blog today! These cards are fairly simple to recreate, but if you need measurements, just let me know. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you and your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it!

Do not forget to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Maureen Rauchfuss.

If you do not already have a demonstrator, it would be my pleasure to be your enabler (er, I mean demonstrator) and send you a copy of your very own. Chock full of inspiration and ideas.
