Jar of Love - #GDP122

Do you create Valentine Cards? I have to say that I create only four .. one for Arturo and one each for our three kids. That means that I generally skip over the Valentine selection in the Occasions Catalogue. The products are always beautiful, don't get me wrong, I am just drawn to others. Ironically though, I always purchase the masculine, Father's Day, products and I only make one card year for my husband! I may need to rethink my shopping approach! 

Dozen's of Stampin' Up!© stamp sets in the Annual Catalogue and the Occasions Catalogue offer images or greetings that can be used for all occasions! Today I paired the Jar of Love stamp set with the Bloomin' Love stamp set to create a Valentine. 

The font type and scale of these two stamp sets pair perfectly together.

Welcome to the Crafty Carrot Collective January Blog Hop!
We are kicking off the new year with a few exciting announcements!

happy birthday Crafty Carrot!

January marks the one year birthday of The Crafty Carrot Collective! Over the last 52 weeks, we have shared blog hops and tutorials with our customers and followers from around the world! THANK-YOU for all of your love, support and for crafting along with us!

To celebrate, we are giving away blog candy!

Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit

This kit pairs perfectly with the products that we will be featuring in our February tutorials!

guest designers

If you followed our November blog hop, you may remember that we bid farewell to the talented Val Moody from the UK. We have decided to invite a guest designer periodically throughout the year!  In February, our friend Marisa Gunn will join the fun and bring you a special bonus tutorial!

Okay, with that out of the way, let's get on with my Celebration Time blog hop project!!! 

The February stamp set of the month is Celebration Time. It pairs perfectly with the new Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper! Being that it is Sale-a-bration, you may want to add the Celebration Thinlits to your order so that you can earn a free Sale-a-bration item! (Learn more about Sale-a-bration here). 

Here is our suggested shopping list for February:
My project today has used the Sweet Soiree Memories & More note cards, a free reward item with a $60 CAD order! If you are shopping with us this January, you may want to choose these note cards as your free item; or alternatively, choose the Party Pandas Stamp Set! You will see both of these free Sale-a-bration items in our February tutorials. 

how to join us in February

The Crafty Carrot Collective now offers two ways for you to join our monthly online tutorial program:

CASE Krista - #GDP120

The weekly challenge for the Global Design Project this week is to CASE Krista Frattin - that's me!

CASE means to "Copy And Selectively Edit". The GDP chose a card that I created this fall to inspire you. Check out this challenge sketch:

When it comes to CASE-ing you can really CASE any part of a project that you like, what ever inspires you! The color combo, the layout, a detail ... 

I CASED the layout from the sample card on the challenge sketch and created this version!

Stampin' Up! launched the 2018 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-bration promotion on January 3rd! I did a Facebook Live unboxing video this past week and the new products are getting a great buzz.

Sale-a-bration is the biggest promotion of the year for Stampin' Up!. For every $60 you spend (before shipping and tax), choose a free, limited time, exclusive item! Plus, new this year: Earn even bigger rewards when you spend $120!

dolce details

  • The "amazing" die cut words were created with the Celebrate You Thinlit Dies - which I received FREE with a $120 Stampin' Up! order! Who doesn't love free?! 
  • The Everyday Label Punch was featured in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue but has been carried over! You will not see it in current publications, but it is still available for purchase (see project supply list below). Let's just hope that it sticks around in the new 2018 Annual Catalogue coming in June! 
  • The Berry Burst sequins are new! You will find these Tutti-frutti Adhesive-Backed Sequin beauties in the new 2018 Occasions Catalogue.

Visit the Global Design Project each Monday for a new challenge! We have a talented design team that will post projects to inspire you. All week long you can create and share with us. Full details are at the GDP - click here.

Have a creative day!
