A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — Spooky Treats Alternate Idea

APPT Hop Header-Image

Hello stamping friends!  My name is Lori Mueller and I welcome you to my creative share with the A Paper Pumpkin Thing blog hop group!  I'm very happy you have stopped by because our Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who are collaborating to create alternate projects using the supplies (plus, additional supplies) that come with our monthly Paper Pumpkin kits.  Each month, my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and members of my Stampin' Up! family (Lori's Dream Team) receive exclusive tutorials to beautiful alternate projects created by our PPX Crew.  Since we are having so much fun sharing exclusive alternate projects with our subscribers, we are creating a 2nd alternate project that is being shared with everyone! YAY!

SPOOKY TREATS

This month's blog hop floats along with Spooky Treats (September 2022) Paper Pumpkin kit.  Get ready to make this the most fang-tastic Halloween ever! It has all the ghostly accessories necessary to Trick—or—Treat.  Teehehe

APPT Hop-Spooky Treats Open Panel Card Front-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06240


I went with Basic Black as my cardbase which measures 5-1/2" x 5-3/4" and then scored at 1-1/2" along the 5-1/2" side.  You'll need another strip that measures 5-1/2" x 1-1/2" for the bottom section to create the Open Panel. 

APPT Hop-Spooky Treats Open Panel RT-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06243

The designer paper is actually one of the sleeves that was cut down and matted with Pumpkin Pie before adhering to the cardbase and extra Basic Black strip.  The inside panel is Fresh Freesia...thought it was less dramatic than using Basic White.

APPT Hop-Spooky Treats Open Panel Card Close-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06250

Die cut a piece of Orchid Oasis using the largest square from the Stylish  Shapes dies.  Use that as a matte layer to the 2-1/4" x 2-1/4" Basic Black square.  Position the extra matted Basic Black strip on the bottom section of the card base.  The ghost image is absolutely adorable when heat embossed with White powder onto Vellum cardstock.  After hand cutting them out, I added ink to the back using a Water Painter.  I used the color palette used in the kit:  Crushed Curry, Orchid Oasis, Pumpkin Pie and Fresh Freesia.  They were added to the stitched square with Mini Dimensionals that were cut in half and strategically added to the eyes and mouth of the ghost.  This was to ensure the dimensionals were not seen through the Vellum.

APPT Hop-Spooky Treats Open Panel Card Open-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06248


Add adhesive to the top and bottom 1/4" section of the stitched square and add it to the front top flap and the bottom strip.  This builds a 'bridge' between the two sections and creates the Open Panel. The bats image was inked with Memento Black onto the inside panel.  Super cute, right?!!  At this time, you are now ready to hop on over to the next A Paper Pumpkin Thing designers blog.  You won't want to miss traveling on as I know they will have something fun, cute and exciting to share with you.  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can click your way through the blog list found below.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — Sending Good Thoughts Alternate Idea

SENDING GOOD THOUGHTS

0722_PP_MKTL_STAMP_ARTWORK

This month's blog hop sets sail across the ocean with the Sending Good Thoughts (July 2022) Paper Pumpkin kit.  With beautifully designed nautical imagery, a fun message in a bottle motif, and sentiments that are “shore” to please, this month’s kit is full of warmth and fun.

APPT Hop-Sending Good Thoughts Card RT-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06136

I chose Pacific Point as my cardbase and background layer that was die cut with the Dots & Spots Die.  The main focal panel is a fun reflection of a ship at sea.  I thought the Silver & Gold Designer Series paper was a nice subtle pattern that is adhered to a piece of Vellum cardstock.  Wrap the Linen Thread around that Vellum/Silver & Gold DSP twice and finish with a bow.  Then add it to the cardfront using Dimensionals. 

APPT Hop-Sending Good Thoughts Card Flat Bow-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06143

The ship was inked with Basic Gray and heat embossed with Clear Emboss Powder onto a Layering Diorama die cut.  Then add it to the card with Dimensionals.  The sentiment was inked with Bermuda Bay, as well as, the scroll image.  I hand cut out the scroll and added to the Layering Diorama with Liquid Glue.

PPX Crew Blog Hop — June Alternate Paper Pumpkin You Are The Sweetest Pick Of The Crop Card

Hello my stamping friends!  Welcome to another series of our PPX Crew Monthly Blog Hop!  I'm very happy you have stopped by because our Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who are collaborating to create alternate projects using the supplies (plus, additional supplies) that come with our monthly Paper Pumpkin kits.  Each month, my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and members of my Stampin' Up! family (Lori's Dream Team) receive exclusive tutorials to beautiful alternate projects created by our PPX Crew.  Since we are having so much fun sharing exclusive alternate projects with our subscribers, we are creating a 2nd alternate project that is being shared with everyone!

PICK OF THE CROP

0622_PP_THUMBNAIL
0622_PP_PICK_OF_THE_CROP_MKTL_STAMP_ARTWORK

This month's blog hop features the refreshing hints of summer Pick Of The Crop (June 2022) kit.  This kit was filled with so many elements of summer that one would see, taste and smell during a morning stroll through your local Farmers Market.  Even reminded me of my trip to Italy a couple years ago...so fun!

PPXHop-June2022 Pick Of The Crop Sweetest Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC06028
I love that the coordinating colors are noted on the back of the instruction panel that comes with each kit.  I had a good number of colors to choose from, but I went with one of my favorites—Soft Succulent for my cardbase.  The main focal panel is taken from one of the cardbases that came with the kit that I cut to make a vertical gate fold.  I started with a 4-1/4 x 8-1/2 card base that is scored at 2-3/4 and 8-1/4 along the long edge.

PPXHop-June2022 Pick Of The Crop Sweetest Card-SideFold-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC06025

The original card base front was cut from the back at 4-1/4—saving the back for another project.  Then trim on all sides by 1/16" to give an even 1/4" trim.  Take the front panel and cut at 2-5/8 from the bottom.  To divide the trimmed card panel, cut at 2-5/8 from the bottom and adhere to each the top and bottom sections of the gatefold sections of the new cardbase.  Add the strawberry/blueberry die cut to the bottom section with Dimensionals forming the overlap of the gatefold.

PPXHop-June2022 Pick Of The Crop Sweetest Card-Close-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC06031
Ink the sentiment with Calypso Coral and stamp onto one of the picket die cuts.  Add it to a set of berries and adhere everything to the card front with Dimensionals.  For a little country touch, tie some Linen Thread around the stake and tie into a bow.  Here's a close-up of the texture, colors and dimension.  Oh-so pretty! At this time, you are now ready to hop on over to the next PPX Crew designers blog.  You won't want to miss traveling on as I know they will have something fun, cute and exciting to share with you.  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can click your way through the blog list found below.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing!

0522_PP_TOOLKIT_STAMP_ARTWORK

This month's blog hop features the new color palette Celebrating In Colors (May 2022) kit.  I'm super excited about this kit because everyone gets to play with the new 2022-2024 In Colors!  They are a wonderful selection of colors...bold, bright and oh-so cheery!

PPXHop-May2022 Celebrating In Colors Orchid Oasis Birthday Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05917I started with a Basic White Thick card base that showcases all FIVE In Colors on one card.  There is a mix of cardstock, ink and embellishments on each.  The piece that is a diagonal cut with rounded corner is actually the flap from each of the envelopes that are included in the kit.  I trimmed off the glue part of the flap, added it to a piece of cardstock and die cut using the Deckled Rectangles Dies.  Each die cut shows off a different Embossing Folder before it was adhered to a piece of Vellum cardstock cut at 4-1/8 x 5-3/8.  The texture is the Gingham Embossing Folder, then the whole set of layers was adhered to the card front.  The "HAPPY" sentiment is one of the images in the kit.  This one is inked with Orchid Oasis onto a strip of Basic White cardstock and added to the card front with Dimensionals.  Before I did that, I wrapped some Tahitian Tide Baker's Twine on one end and tied into a bow.  The 2nd sentiment is heat embossed with White onto a strip of Sweet Sorbet and set into place with Dimensionals.  The final touch is the In Color Enamel Dots that coordinate with the Baker's Twine.

PPXHop-May2022 Celebrating In Colors Parakeet Party Birthday Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05916
The Tahitian Tide Envelope Flap & Sweet Sorbet cardstock was embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.  The HAPPY sentiment is inked with Parakeet Party; 2nd sentiment heat embossed onto Starry Sky; and Orchid Oasis Baker's Twine and Enamel Dot.

PPXHop-May2022 Celebrating In Colors Starry Sky Birthday Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05920
The Orchid Oasis Envelope Flap & Parakeet Party cardstock was embossed with the Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folder.  The HAPPY sentiment is inked with Starry Sky; 2nd sentiment heat embossed onto Tahitian Tide; and Sweet Sorbet Baker's Twine and Enamel Dot.

PPXHop-May2022 Celebrating In Colors Sweet Sorbet Birthday Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05918
The Starry Sky Envelope Flap & Tahitian Tide cardstock was embossed with the Cascading Ruffles 3D Embossing Folder.  The HAPPY sentiment is inked with Sweet Sorbet; 2nd sentiment heat embossed onto Orchid Oasis; and Parakeet Party Baker's Twine and Enamel Dot.

PPXHop-May2022 Celebrating In Colors Tahitian Tide Birthday Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05919
The Sweet Sorbet Envelope Flap & Orchid Oasis cardstock was embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.  The HAPPY sentiment is inked with Tahitian; 2nd sentiment heat embossed onto Parakeet Party; and Starry Sky Baker's Twine and Enamel Dot.

Hello my stamping friends!  Welcome to another series of our PPX Crew Monthly Blog Hop!  I'm very happy you have stopped by because our Crew is a group of Stampin' Up!

This month's blog hop features the nature-inspired Beyond The Horizons (March 2022) kit.  This time of year is always an extra special kit because we are celebrating Paper Pumpkin's birthday!  TOOT-TOOT!

Free Stamp Set Image

Not only do we get a special patterned souvenir box that all of our supplies come in, but this year we received a 2nd stamp set!!  This one coordinates with the New Horizons Suite Collection available in the January-June 2022 Mini catalog.  Love it when something like this happens...more bang for my buck!

PPXHop-March2022 Beyond The Horizons Birthday Flat-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05754

This months kit came with amazing envelopes that are patterned on the outside and a different pattern on the inside.  Since the primary neutral color is Basic White, I decided to cut up one of the envelopes and use it as designer series paper.  The Pale Papaya is the larger piece that is matted with Old Olive cardstock; and the inside was the Old Olive skinny later.  Both layers are adhered to an Evening Evergreen card base (4-1/2 x 11, scored at 5-1/2).  Before planting the larger layer, I wrapped some of the beautiful Pale Papaya Grosgrain Ribbon that came with the kit and tied into a bow.

PPXHop-March2022 Beyond The Horizons Birthday Sentiment-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05756

The flower image is set up as a 2-step stamping technique.  The solid piece was stamped once, and the outlined image was inked and stamped twice to show contrast between the two images.  I hand cut the flower, as well as, the Old Olive leaves that are tucked behind.  I popped this floral arrangement with dimensionals and set onto a Stitched So Sweetly Basic White die cut.  The sentiment layer mimics one of the punch out pieces with the kit...Basic White that was punched on each edge using the Banners Pick A Punch.

PPXHop-March2022 Beyond The Horizons Birthday LT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05751

Finish the card by adding the Stitched So Sweetly focal arrangement to the card front with Dimensionals.  Now looking at the pictures of my card, I realized that I forgot to sprinkle some of the Iridescent Rhinestones that came with the kit on the card.  GEESH!  I'll be fixing that as soon as I finish typing this post.

At this time, you are now ready to hop on over to the next PPX Crew designers blog.  You won't want to miss traveling on as I know they will have something fun, cute and exciting to share with you.  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can click your way through the blog list found below.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing!

Hello my stamping friends!  Welcome to another series of our PPX Crew Monthly Blog Hop!  I'm very happy you have stopped by because our Crew is a group of Stampin' Up!

0122_PP_THUMBNAIL 0122_PP_TOOLKIT_STAMPARTWORK

This month's blog hop features the love-filled Kisses & Hugs (January 2022) kit.  Not very often do I think to use up any of the leftover negative pieces from punched images, they usually get tossed in the recycle bin, but this time the scraps were speaking quite clearly to me.  After all of the bi-fold heart cards were made, there were still goodies left behind to create a fun shaker card!

PPXHop-Jan2022 Kisses Hugs Shaker Heart Card LT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05246

The background is the largest Scalloped Contour Die cut from Blushing Bride with a layer of Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog.  I threaded the Real Red Faux Linen Ribbon through the loops, tied into a bow and added to the Crumb Cake cardbase with Liquid Glue.

PPXHop-Jan2022 Kisses Hugs Shaker Heart Card Flat Angle-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05250

There was no way I was tossing the negative left behind from the Blushing Bride heart frame!  I adhered a piece of Vellum to the back of the leftover heart and hand cut it out with Paper Snips.  This way I only had to cut the heart once versus twice.  I arranged the two stamp images — X and O — on a clear block to ink with Versa Mark and heat emboss with Gold.  To create the shaker component, I traced the Vellum framed heart onto Basic White cardstock and hand cut with Snips.  The From My Heart Faceted Gems are a perfect color match to the rest of the card — right down to the splash of Gold — and make a good shake-shake-shake noise that will be fun for the recipient to enjoy. 

PPXHop-Jan2022 Kisses Hugs Shaker Heart Card RT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05243

Finish the card with the word sentiments inked with Real Red onto a strip of Basic White, snipped to size and added to the card front with Stampin' dimensionals.

Hello my stamping friends!  Welcome to another series of our PPX Crew Monthly Blog Hop!  I'm very happy you have stopped by because our Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who are collaborating to create alternate projects using the supplies (plus, additional supplies) that come with our monthly Paper Pumpkin kits.  Each month, my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and members of my Stampin' Up! family of demonstrators receive exclusive tutorials to beautiful alternate projects created by our PPX Crew.  Well, now we are creating a 2nd alternate project that is being shared with everyone!

1121_PP_TOOLKIT_STAMPARTWORK[1]

This month's blog hop features the super cute Gifts Galore (November 2021) kit.  'Tis the season for gift giving, so my project features our Acetate Card Boxes that are not just for filling with handmade cards.  They're perfect for filling with a mix of chocolates, too.  I have used all of the supplies that came with my kit, so I'm going to give several images from the stamp set lots of inky love.

PPXHop-Nov Gifts Galore Nugget Box Left-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-IMG_1761

My list of treat packages needed is quite long...lots of teachers, co-workers and Stampin' Up! family members to create something special for.  I really love the color palette that is part of the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series paper—Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, Cherry Cobbler and Sahara Sand make it easy to create gifts for any gender.

PPXHop-Nov Gifts Galore Nugget Box Open-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-IMG_1766
To get the most treat packages with one package of Acetate Card Boxes, I cut them in half and created a new topper for the open end.  The other end of the box will be secured with the tabs and flap enclosure.  Instead of leaving the Evening Evergreen topper all straight and proper, I fancied up the front flap using the scalloped Basic Border Dies.  I then matched it up with the same die cut with a pretty pattern of designer paper.  Fill it with some designer paper wrapped Hershey Nuggets...and, a fun gift card to boot!

PPXHop-Nov Gifts Galore Nugget Box Back-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-IMG_1765

The Evening Evergreen layer is adhered to the inside of the Acetate Box, so I added a piece of Designer Series Paper to the outside back of the box using Tear & Tape.  This is to hide the adhesive used to hold the Evening Evergreen piece to the inside of the box.

PPXHop-Nov Gifts Galore Nugget Box FlatRT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-IMG_1763
To hold all the goodies in the box, wrap some Soft Succulent Open Weave ribbon around the flap area and tie in a know.  Stamp the gift image with Cherry Cobbler and Soft Succulent ink, fussy cut and adhere to the front with Dimensionals.  I did ink the ribbon image in the same coordinating colors as the gift package image, fussy cut them and adhered to the top of each gift.  The sentiment was inked with Evening Evergreen, fussy cut and added to the gift arrangement using a mix of Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

PPX Crew Blog Hop — October Peaceful Christmas Alternate Holiday Cheer

PPXCrew-BlogHop-Header

Hello my stamping friends!  Welcome to another series of our PPX Crew Monthly Blog Hop!  I'm very happy for your visit here.  Our Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who are collaborating to create alternate projects using the supplies (plus, additional supplies) that come with our monthly Paper Pumpkin kits.  Each month, my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and members of my Stampin' Up! family of demonstrators receive exclusive tutorials to beautiful alternate projects created by our PPX Crew.  Well, now we are creating a 2nd alternate project that is being shared with everyone!

PPXHop-Oct Peaceful Christmas Step Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05030

1021_PP_THUMBNAIL

1021_PP_TOOLKIT_STAMPARTWORK

This month's blog hop features the beautiful Peaceful Christmas (October 2021) kit.  My project features a fun-fold technique called the Stair-step fold, which was inspired by some of the leftover element pieces I had saved away in the kit.  I'm also using a couple of stamp images from the set that were not used as part of the original card designs.

PPXHop-Oct Peaceful Christmas Step Card RT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05031

Even though there were Shaded Spruce card bases included in the kit, I chose to use regular Shaded Spruce cardstock as I needed a base that was not pre-scored.  The Buffalo Check paper were leftover strips that I matted with Silver Foil Paper.  To highlight the card front, I cut one half of the Basic Gray festive cardbases down to 3-1/4 x 4 and matted with Silver Foil paper.  To compliment the card front, I cut the Basic Gray woodgrain element in half and layered on the 'front step' of the card.

PPXHop-Oct Peaceful Christmas Step Card Open-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05035

To create the Stair-step feature of your card, the Shaded Spruce cardbase is cut 1-inch inside of each long end starting at the 1-inch mark from one short end through to the 5-1/4" mark.  Then, take your scoring tool on your trimmer and score at 1", 2", 4-1/4" and 5-1/4".  The only section that is scored at the 4-1/4" mark is the section in the middle (do not score on the 1" side strips at 4-1/4".   The other score lines should only fall on the 1" strip on each long end side.  Score and burnish the folds to create a 'stair step' effect.  I inked the row of evergreen trees with Shaded Spruce ink (included with kit), stamped onto a piece of Basic White cardstock (3-1/4 x 4), and set in place to finish the inside of the card.

PPXHop-Oct Peaceful Christmas Step Card LT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05033

I used the Fancy Label Punch for the Peaceful Christmas sentiment, which was very similar to size and shape of the sentiment tags that were included with the kit.  The red banner element was adhered to the back of the sentiment tag and added to the card front using Dimensionals.  The final dressing of the card includes a glittering Enamel Gem and a little bow made from the Real Red Baker's Twine—both included in the kit.

PPXHop-Sept Haunts Harvest Fall Blessing RT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC04921

0921_PP_TOOLKIT_STAMPARTWORK

 

This month's blog hop features the lovely Haunts & Harvest (September 2021) kit.  I chose to focus on the stamp set included with the kit and the coordinating Harvest Meadows Designer Series Paper because the kits treat packages are so stinking cute that I have assembled them per the instructions and will be handing out to colleagues and students.

 

PPXHop-Sept Haunts Harvest Fall Blessing Timber EF-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC04925

The Crumb Cake cardbase has one of the Misty Moonlight patterns from the Harvest Meadows Designer Series paper pack with a strip of Misty Moonlight cardstock on the right.  The Very Vanilla layer was first dry embossed using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder, then die cut the center with a Stitched Rectangles Die (2-1/8 x 3-1/2).

PPXHop-Sept Haunts Harvest Fall Blessing Close Ribbon-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC04927

For a bit of Fall color, I bordered the left edge of the Timber embossed layer with a strip of Bumblebee cardstock.  Garnish the open frame area with a piece of 3/8 Diamond Weave Ribbon finished off with Linen Thread tied into a bow.  Adhere to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

PPXHop-Sept Haunts Harvest Fall Blessing Inks-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC04919

 

Adhere the Stitched Rectangle die cut directly to the card front.  Ink and stamp the large leaf image from the Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin kit with Pumpkin Pie and Bumblebee, adding the veins with Soft Suede ink.  The small leaf was inked and stamped using Soft Succulent, Poppy Parade and Pale Papaya ink pads.  All of the leaves were fussy cut (hand cut using Paper Snips) and added to the center using Multipurpose Liquid glue with exception to the Bumblebee large leaf.  It was added with a Dimensional.  The sentiment was inked with Misty Moonlight and stamped onto a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock and added to the card front with Dimensionals.

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Summer Fun with Zany Zebras

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today our amazing Creative Inking designers have created an inspiring group of projects themed as "Summer Fun".  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Colleen Vassos' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop to see all the beautiful projects.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

There are TWO new animal sets available in the new 2020 Annual catalog that I really wanted...Zany Zebras and Way To Goat, but was limiting myself to only purchase ONE.  ugh!!  They are both fun and whimsical.

CreativeInkingHop-SummerFunZanyZebra-Lori-DSC02500
 
I decided to grab the Zany Zebras stamp set first, partly because they were on the page previous to the Goats.  haha!  My vision was to create some fun birthday cards, as well as, some really cute thank you cards.
 
PPSummerAdd-on-154973G
 
I also fell in love with the new Paper Pumpkin Summer Nights Add-On cards and envelopes pack that was just released.  You have to be a current Paper Pumpkin subscriber to purchase these.  I've seen a sneak peak of the August Paper Pumpkin kit, so I highly recommend you subscribe...especially, so you can get yourself a pack of these beautiful card bases to play with.  You get 24 cardbases and envelopes (8 each of 3 patterns), all for 10 bucks!
 
CreativeInkingHop-SummerFunZanyZebrasClose-Lori-DSC02504


I decided this sentiment could be a subway to the interpretation of "Thank You".  I have it popped up on a couple of punched Medium Daisies for some added fun to the arrangement.

Now, if you have ever thought about getting more for your money purchasing all of your favorite Stampin' Up! products, I highly recommend that you purchase the "Happy Shopper" Starter Kit and save 20% with each purchase.  There really isn't anything to lose...only lots of product to gain!  But, until you make that leap to join my Stampin' Up! family and fill your starter kit with new Annual catalog products.  If you wish to start creating my project, you'll find the ingredients listed below.  I've set it up super easy for you to click on any of the images and add to your shopping cart in my online store.  I would be so very grateful to you and your support for shopping with me.  Check out my Dreamers Loyalty Reward Program...I love what I do and very much appreciation YOU.  So, I pay it back and reward my loyal customers with a FREE shopping spree. You fill my cup!



 

So with one click you can be on your way to soak in some more inspiration showcasing more "New Annual Catalog Favorites" creations using supplies from any of the current catalog from the rest of the group.  Your next stop on the hop will be with our very creative, Dena Rekow.  I know her creation will be fabulous...she always shares a gorgeous creation (or two) to share with everyone. Click on the 'Next' button and you'll be at your next stop.  Have fun filling your inspiration bucket...don't forget to come back real soon.  :)
