Crazy Crafters December Blog Hop

Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop, thank you for joining us and we hope you are enjoying our virtual hop so far and that you are learning new techniques or gaining inspiration along the way.

You should have just left stop number 6 on the Crazy Crafters Hop -

If so, you are right on track. if not there is no need to worry you can set yourself back on track using the full blog line up at the bottom of this post to move along from blog to blog so you don't miss any of the amazing creations from all the talented ladies in the Crazy Crafters team.

This is my first time participating and I am so excited to share this experience with you all :) This months blog hop theme is your favourite 3 colour combo. We were aloud to use Whisper white and 3 other colours on top of this, so I used my favourite combo of Black, Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry.

I had so much fun putting this card together and hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. I have been wanting to try a tri-fold card for sometime and I just couldn't resist trying it out for this blog hop :)

I used this youtube tutorial by Splitcoaststampers for the tri-fold instructions and also took inspiration for placement of some of the elements of the decoration from this card too.


Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black, Whisper White and paper from the Afternoon Picnic Designer Series 
Express Yourself (Only Available as a hostess reward) Clear Mount - Wood Mount 
World Treasures Clear Mount - Wood Mount 
Gorgeous Grunge Clear Mount - Wood Mount 
Framelits Circles Collection , Simply Scored, Stampin' TrimmerStamp-A-Ma-Jig and Big Shot (This project would be easier still with the magnetic platform but I don't have one yet) 

Thank you for your time in viewing my little contribution to the blog hop and I hope you gained some new idea's along the way.

Now it's time for me to send you on your way to stop number 8 on the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop -

My First Blog and Me!

Well I would like to start by welcoming any wayward wanders who might stumble onto my blog. I will mostly be using this blog to share my love of Stampin' Up! and the projects I create. However I thought I would start things off by introducing myself and sharing a little of me with you :)

My Boyfriend Callum and myself

Hi my name is Sarah, I have an amazing house which I brought this year with my boyfriend, it might be a little old and need some work but we own it and we love it. We share our house with our twin boys, they are quite the little characters and although they are twins their personalities couldn't be more different.

Hannibal is our little shy baby, he loves to come and sit on your lap for hours and get lots of snuggles but it will take him a while to pluck up the courage to do it. Lecter on the other hand is our little terror, he lives up to his name preferring to spend his "cuddle" time nomming your hand but we still love him to bits :)

Our twins Hannibal and Lecter
I work at Bunnings manning the phones by day, on my weekends I am either in my craft room playing with one thing or another, or I am out and about doing face painting. I like to be busy which might be why I always seem to overbook myself and never have quite enough time as I would like to craft.

Hannibal and Lecter love to come and "help" when I am crafting, sitting on my tools or knocking my paper to the ground. If they weren't so cute they would be getting told off all the time! Unfortunately I'm a softie so usually they get away with being little terrors.

Well that is the main run down of my little life so I will leave you there for today as I am off for a day out with my mum to get deep tissue massage yay! I hope you all have a lovely day and I would love to see you back here soon.
