Creativity Abounds Blog Hop - August 2023 - Fun Folds

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. 

We're welcoming 2 new Demonstrators to our team as Kylie and Michele have decided to take a break.  Welcome Jan Clothier from New Zealand and Lotte Noordzij from the Netherlands!  

This month we are sharing projects featuring Fun Folds.  Always a fun blog hop to participate in!
