Paper Adventures Team Hop – Goodbyes

Paper Adventures Header

Hello everybody and welcome to my first blog post as the Stand Up Stamper. If you have already visited my friend Narelle’s post I am sure you loved her design.

The theme for this month is Goodbye. Stampin’ Up will be retiring many of my favourite products at the end of May but the good news is that there are lots of beautiful new items being added to the new catalogue.

Being born and up in the UK I used to love seeing hedgehogs in the hedgerows so I was very happy to see the Hedgehugs stamp set when it was added to the catalogue and will miss it when it retires at the end of May.  With this in mind I decided to make a card using the Hedgehugs stamp set and also another retiring product, the Animal Expedition DSP.  One of my sisters-in-law in the UK is having health issues at the moment so I am sending her “Hedgehugs” from Australia.  Thank you to Klompenstampers for inspiring me with her tutorial for a Triangle Fold Card.

Another favourite of mine that is also retiring is the All My Love DSP, as it is Mothers’ Day on Sunday in Australia I made this very pretty corner fold card to say goodbye to this very pretty DSP, many thanks to Jan Brown from JanB cards for her amazing tutorial.

Next on the blog hop is the very talented Mandy Depiazzi, I know you are going to love her design.

  1. First of all, a standing ovation for your first blog hop!! I’m so happy you’ve joined the blogosphere and look forward to seeing lots more of your beautiful creations. Your split Aussie/British card is so clever and I bet your sister in law will really appreciate such a thoughtful hedgehug in the mail. Both beautiful creations, of course. I think you are becoming the queen of fancy folds!


  2. Woo hoo – a new blog and a blog hop all in the same week. You’re amazing! Love the dual nationality of your triangle cards. Great ideas for two incredible fancy folds, thanks for sharing. Kelly x


  3. So clever Sheila…congratulations on your blog! Two gorgeous cards …I love the All my Love DSP too…looks great on that card!


  4. Congratulations on your new blog Sheila. The name suits you so much! Lovely cards, that DSP is so pretty I too will miss that one. I must try one of those triangular cards one day soon x
