Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop Card kits/Project Kits





Welcome to the June, 2018 Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop. You are currently visiting Karen Farquhar from Australia and this month's theme is 'Card Kits/Project Kits'. I hope you are inspired by my projects today. 



The brief for this month's Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop is to take a Stampin' Up! Card Kit or Project Kit and to either make it up or create alternative cards/projects from it.
I was so temped not to mess with perfection in the beautiful Notes of Kindness Card Kit and make it up as per instructions. But I bit the bullet and with a little of fussy cutting I ended up with a framed decor wreath, a scrapbook page, a thank you card and a lot of extra supplies left over for more projects.  




My granddaughter asked if I could use this photograph of herself and two aunties to make a Scrapbook page for her Scrapbook album. The day was a special treat of High Tea for her from her aunties to celebrate her 18th Birthday. The roses on the china tea service inspired me to use the roses from the card kit to create this page.





My second project is a wreath of succulents and roses also die-cuts from the card kit. You can see how many supplies are included in each kit. Enough to make 20 cards in total.





With so many extra supplies left over I thought my Granddaughter may want to thank her Aunties for giving her such a special outing so I have made a simple little card for her to give them as well.




I think the kits Stampin' Up! have designed are perfect for people just being introduced to card making. Everything you need is included in the kits to create 20 beautiful cards. Including card bases, coordinating printed envelopes a stamp set, ink, clear stamp block, die-cut stickers and accents, pearls and dimensionals.

Thank you for visiting me today. I am Karen Farquhar and I hope the projects you've seen here on my blog today have inspired you & brightened your day. Please see the list below & hop through all of the people on the list to see all our projects. You don't want to miss any!
