Spring/Summer Blog Hop

Hi All,

So today I'm taking part in a blog hop with some demonstrators that are in my wider team. You may have come from Helga Brown's blog post & if so welcome to this hop. If you have started here than it is great to see you here, at the bottom of the post is next & previous buttons to take you through the blog hop.

The theme for this blog hop is 'Spring/Summer Catalogue' so I thought I would ink up the lovely hot air balloon stamp 'You Lift Me Up.' Here is what I created: 


I used reinkers to create the ink pad by adding a few drops to a wet wipe in a stamp case & created these wonderful balloons, here is a close up: 

The colours I used were Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Peekaboo Peach & Rich Razzleberry, which is the Fab Friday colour challenge that I've taken part in:

Here is a closer look at both of them, you can see how different each one is due to the bleeding of the ink on the wet wipe. 

Thanks for stopping by & happy crafting,

Here are the buttons to continue onto the next blog hop:


  1. I can't believe I've never tried this technique - these came out amazing! Totally going for it now, lol. Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!

  2. Such a fun technique that I haven't done in forever! The hot air balloons look great with the blend of the challenge colors! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

  3. This is just fabulous! I love the layout and all the white space with all the color too! Thanks for playing at Fab Friday!

I really enjoyed creating this project & I've used some sneak peeks that will be coming out in January when the Spring/Summer catalogue goes live. The first picture is a my work in progress of the design before I was happy. I used the lovely Petal Passion suite: 

Here is what the finished page looks like, I used the co-ordinating stamp set to create the flowers & the bottom of the page, mounted the pictures/journaling in Rose Red & Perfect Plum. A little …

Go For Greece Blog Hop - March 2018

Evening all,
Hope you are well.
I'm popping by on a blog hop with the amazing 'Go For Greece' training group. Since October I've been part of an awesome training programme to gain knowledge & in site in how to achieve the incentive trip that Stampin' Up! has to offer.

I've recently been in the amazing 'Love it Chop it' group where you learn to cut that paper you have around the house!! haha!
