Pinkies Stampin' Up! 2015 Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop! feat. Lotus Blossom Stamp Set


Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We're showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using new Stampin' Up!® products that you can earn free during Sale-a-Bration. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!


If you have arrived here from Anne-Marie's blog, Happy New Year and welcome!! I really hope you enjoy looking at the projects we have made!


I love stationery so I decided to make a matching notebook, calendar & paperclip pot using the Lotus Blossom Photopolymer Stamp Set that you can earn for free during Sale-a-Bration.




The flower on the Lotus Blossom Photopolymer Stamp Set comes in 3 pieces (see product link below). As the stamps and blocks are clear, you can stamp over the first image with the next two pieces to get the detail on the flower. It's up to you, you can either start with the largest or smallest stamp because Stampin' Up! have made it really easy to line the stamps up together. This is an amazing, easy technique, only possible to do with photopolymer stamps!


For all three pieces of stationery, I have used Lost Lagoon as the main colour and have added either Rich Razzleberry or Blackberry Bliss as accent colours.



This little calendar was quick and easy to make. Its difficult to see in this picture, but it does have a base so it can stand freely and it can also be hung up using the Stitched Satin Ribbon. 

If you would like to know the dimensions of the calendar, please leave a comment and I will send the details to you.



Do you recognise this little pot? I was clearing up after Christmas Dinner and was just about to recycle the glass ramakins that came with the GU desserts.... and suddenly inspiration came to me.... they would make perfect paperclip pots!!! (obviously)

A little Designer Series Paper, some Linen Thread and 3 perfectly placed Rich Razzleberry Brights Designer Buttons - and here we have a creation that I came up with when I was ready to collapse on Christmas Day!
