IDEAS Blog Hop - We're Cut Out to Be Friends!

Hi there

I'm back with the IDEAS (International Demos Exciting Artistic Stampin') team this month to share more fabulous projects. We are a group of international demonstrators who create a Tutorial Bundle each month to give you, our customers and readers inspiration for your crafting.

This month marks 5 years of my participation with the IDEAS Tutorial Bundle and it will be my final one.  In 2024 I will be focussing on in-person classes and also getting back into some patchwork with a new project ready to commence. I will write individual tutorials periodically when I get inspired by a product or something seasonal.

If you've come from looking at Jacqui's project, then welcome!  If you're visiting me, I appreciate you stopping by today!  You can continue your journey to see the other inspiring creations from the IDEAS Team by clicking on the Next Blog button in the list at the bottom of the post. 

This month our theme is We're Cut Out to be Friends and it's all about cutting - die cutting, fussy cutting, using punches as well as the trusty trimmer. We have 13 fabulous tutorials in our 57 page bundle with a wonderful range of Christmas crafting projects as well as all occasion projects such as the one I’ve created.


Recently, it was our Godson’s wedding, so I wanted to create a special wedding card for him and his Fiancé. I designed this classically elegant silver and white card and box envelope, as the flowers are very dimensional (although the photo doesn’t show this particularly well). The box is intended for hand presentation, and would need to be in another container to survive the postal system. The design would also work for engagement and anniversary occasions as well. It is an oversized card that would be perfect for group signing. The bundle also includes lots of lovely cards and gift card/packaging projects, for last minute Christmas ideas.You can see additional pics of my project by clicking on the link below.

There are 3 ways you can get the December 2023 Tutorial Bundle.

2. You can purchase the tutorial with Instant Download through my Etsy store by clicking here. You can pay with a credit card or PayPal and you DO NOT need to sign up to Etsy to make a purchase. Check out as a guest if you are not a member.

3.  Join my team and you will get this bundle of tutorials FREE every month to use for your personal crafting or for classes. You can see all the details over on the Join My Team page.

There is a fabulous joining offer during October - 35% off or 35% more! Get in touch and I'll tell you all about this great offer.

Once you have received the tutorials, please remember not to share or distribute the printed or electronic copies of these bundles.
