Time for another Creativity Abounds Blog Hop!  We are a group of very keen Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world who are coming together to share our creative ideas with you. We are happy that you can join us and hope that we can inspire you to make creations of your own. You may be starting here or you may have come from someone else's blog - either way there is a list at the end of this post to help you move around all the different blogs and get many amazing ideas. We all have our country listed - so if you are looking for a demonstrator in your country, these demonstrators would love to look after you with your Stampin' Up!® shopping or if you would like to join our Stampin' Up!® teams. 

Here's our amazing Creativity Abounds Design Team! 

For our cards this month, our theme is "Anything But Christmas".  Check out this fun birthday card I made using the Stampin' Up! Yeti to Party Stamp Set!  Starting on September 1st you'll be able to get coordinating Yeti Dies for this stamp and when you bundle the stamp set and dies, you'll save 10%! 

I have been having so much fun playing with this bundle!  The dies are so much fun!  There's even a die to cut a slit in the Yeti's arm so you can insert a parcel like I did or an ice cream cone or any of the amazing images!  What fun!

Isn't this a fun birthday card!  A yeti isn't just for Christmas and is for all ages!
