Creativity Abounds Blog Hop - May 2024 - Country Birdhouses

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!  

This month we're sharing our Bonus Project for our upcoming Creativity Abounds Stamp Camp featuring the Country Birdhouses Bundle from the Stampin' Up! 2024-2025 Annual Catalogue.  I love this bundle and I love the products in the Suite!  I made a shadow box using the Country Woods Designer Series Paper to frame a pretty bird house.  This sheet of Designer Series Paper is my favourite!

Isn't this pretty and the perfect piece of Home Decor!  Shadow boxes are pretty easy to make.  If you want to learn how to make this piece, you can sign up for our Stamp Camp until the end of May.  Purchase the following products from my Online Store and you will be registered and will receive 13 Make and Takes and access to an exclusive Facebook Group where we will share all of the bonus projects in this Blog Hop!  

    • Country Birdhouses Bundle
    • Country Woods Designer Series Paper
    • Basic Gray and Smoky Slate Pearls
    • Petal Pink & White 1/4" Diagonal Trim Combo Pack
    • Eyelet 3d Embossing Folder

    If any of the products are not orderable you can substitute other products as long as the total before shipping and taxes is $119.50.

    You can find all of the supplies for this card in my Online Store.
