I feel like I am still dreaming!  Being chosen as a member of the 2019 Artisan Design Team is still unreal to me.  I decided to use upcoming products from the 2019 Occasions and Sale-a-Bration Catalogs (Available January 3, 2019) to create a page with photos of my Artisan Gift Box that I received in November at OnStage in Orlando, FL.

The “Thank You So Very Much” sentiment (Butterfly Gala Bundle, shown below) seemed to be perfect for my page for showing gratitude to Stampin’ Up! for giving me this opportunity.  The black & white butterflies on the left were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock and cropped using the coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch.  I then stitched them to the designer series paper using my We R Stitch Happy Sewing Machine.

The colored butterflies were also cropped with the Butterfly Duet Punch.  The Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, FREE with a $50 Purchase during Sale-a-Bration (also available January 3, 2019) is gorgeous!  Black and White images on one side (the polka dot pattern on my page) and beautifully colored images on the other (the butterflies around my photos).

Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop – September 2018

Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop September 2018 Theme Masculine, Layout created by Design Team Member Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Welcome to the September Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop. I am part of a talented ground of designers that have a passion for Scrapbooking using Stampin’ Up! products. This month’s theme is Masculine! If you’d like to participate in our monthly challenge and hop, you can join in the fun via our Scrapbooking Global – Stampin’ Up! Facebook Group!

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Start with a piece of 12x12 Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper.
  2. Stamp various background images in Gray Granite Ink, keeping to the left and right edges.  I used stamps from the Gallery Grunge, Artisan Texture,  Winter Woods, and Touches of Texture Stamp Sets.
  3. Cut three 6″ strips and three 4″ strips of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim.  Shred the ends and adhere to the back of the photos (PHOTO SIZES:  Right 3 1/2″ Square, Left 2 1/4″ Square).
  4. Place Chicken Wire Elements, white side up, behind the photos and snip to size.  Adhere to the page with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  5. Stamp the page title in Gray Granite onto Glossy White Cardstock using the Lined Alphabet Stamp Set.  Crop with the Big Shot and coordinating dies.  Snip remaining pieces to create individual letters. Adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Stamp additional title, in Gray Granite, using the Pick a Pennant Stamp Set.

As you can tell, I love, love, love (did I say love?) texture stamps. They add so much to a creation with very little effort.  Pair it with the Chicken Wire Elements (sorry, they were so popular they are currently set to not-orderable status until more product comes in) and you have a recipe for a great artistic creation!

The 3/16″ Braided Linen Thread is currently my favorite embellishment in the ribbon category.  You can leave it beautifully braided or you can separate for an artistic flair.  I sincerely hope it hangs around for a while as it will get its fair share of use in my craft room.

My dad was big into horses for most of his life.  Sparky, shown in the photo, was HIS first horse and they were the best of friends, circa 1964. When I was in the 3rd grade, we moved out to the country and got our first pony named Mud. Our family of horses grew from there as well as my father’s skills with caring for them.  He attended the Oklahoma School of Horseshoeing and became a sought-after farrier to the residents in and around our small town.

My father is who I inherited my artistic talents from.  He loved blacksmithing, woodworking and leather making.  His life was cut short and he left this world at the young age of 59.  I will forever be grateful for the time I had with him.  I have his farrier record book that has both his writing and mine in one place…I spent a summer helping him and it will be a summer that is forever held dear to my heart.

Creating pages showcasing him brings both joy and sorrow.  Sorrow for knowing I will never get to hug him again and joy knowing that he is at peace in heaven and I will always have my memories.

The Best Route Designer Series Paper and Best Route Enamel Shapes coordinated perfectly with my photos of Preston.  I know they are not “official” school photos, but I ran with it.  It represents a very special day, the first day of first grade!

I love my blue-eyed boy!  The center photo is one of my favorites.  It captured his happy, bright-eyed smile that he gives so very often!

The Best Route Enamel Shapes that are “Pin” points on a map were perfect to represent our home address and the school name.  Cute, cute, cute!

Welcome to the Pals April 2018 Blog Hop. Join us while we put “Families First” in our hop this month. The Stampin’ Pretty Pals will inspire you with family-related projects like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Graduation or Family Vacations. You may be just starting or hopped over from another Pal. In either case, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

Scrapbooking is what got me started in the paper crafting realm.  I love to make a scrapbook layout that reflects back on a memorable moment with my family.  This page shows my husband and son enjoying the view of the lake while dipping their toes in the water, I wish I could see that view every day!

OnStage SLC November 2017 Display Board Stamper

Perennial Birthday Stamp Set from the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Catalog Available January 3, 2018 from Stampin' Hoot! Stesha Bloodhart #stampinhoot #steshabloodhart #perennialbirthday #scrapbookpage

OnStage SLC November 2017 Display Board Stamper

As you have seen from previous posts, I just returned from an AMAZING trip to Salt Lake City for the 2017 OnStage Live event.  I had the prestigious honor of being 1 of 14 demonstrators that received product from the upcoming 2018 Occasions Catalog to create samples to display for other demonstrators to view.  It was definitely a dream come true for me and I really hope to have the honor again for upcoming events.

Perennial Birthday Stamp Set from the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Catalog Available January 3, 2018 from Stampin' Hoot! Stesha Bloodhart

I received three stamp sets along with embellishments and designer series paper to create with. Today I am sharing one of the stamp sets for my 12 x 12 Scrapbook Page, used to introduce myself. The set is Perennial Birthday that has several cute flowers that I stamped on Crumb Cake Cardstock and colored with the new Stampin’ Blends! The Designer Series Paper is also new, part of the Myths & Magic Suite I will be sharing with you within the next several months.

I LOVE to fussy cut!  If you follow me, you already know this…it is my therapy.  All the creations I made with this set involve fussy cutting, but don’t let that deter you!  Beautiful creations can be made without fussy cutting the images.  I plan to show that in future samples and posts!

I thought it would be fun to add my name and pronunciation as several people struggle with how to say it. Although I don’t think it helped :). The ‘e’ is not long and also doesn’t sound like an ‘a’.  Its the short phonic sound of ‘e’, which is ‘eh’.   ‘Steh-shuh‘ . I truly hope that helps some of you that are leary of my name pronunciation.   Note:  I am not offended nor will I get upset if you pronounce it incorrectly!  I go with the flow and will answer to anything :).

I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone that introduced themselves, complimented my work and gave me a hug!  It made my year and I am so blessed to be a part of a community of crafters that respects, loves and encourages others, a family I am so happy and blessed to be a part of.

Check back often throughout the month of November and December as I share sneak peeks of products in the upcoming 2018 Occasions Catalog and 2018 Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  Let us not forget the 2017 Holiday Catalog that I still have stamps to ink up, dies to cut with and embellishments to share!

The Perfect Pumpkin Scrapbook Layout for GDP111 Theme: Family Time

Global Design Project 111 Challenge - Theme: Family Time #GDP111I love creating scrapbook pages and try to make a weekly Scrapbook Sunday post but haven’t had time to fit it into my schedule.  So when I saw this week’s theme of Family Time for Global Design Project 111, I knew I had to create a layout using that super cute Pick-A-Pumpkin Bundle. I usually spend an immense amount of time on my layouts, this one took me about 2 hours.  I may go back and add a few more details here and there, but I think it looks clean and simple.

We had so much fun visiting the corn maze that featured the Minnesota Wild.  We are huge hockey fans and were so excited to find a Fall Festival that had oodles of activities for the kiddos and a theme close to our hearts.  I have lots of pictures to feature on scrapbook layouts and I am happy that I got started on them…

I use the Letters for You Stamp Set and Large Letters Framelits Dies on almost all of my scrapbook pages.  It is a must-have for anyone who scrapbooks and it’s all the craze for the current Eclipse cards that have taken the Stampin’ Up! community by storm.  You can see my Eclipse Card here: 2nd Annual Ultimate Pink Blog Hop
