Welcome To The Eureka Stampers Blog Hop!

Hi & welcome to our very 1st Eureka Stampers Blog Hop!  I was so excited to be able to join in the fun with such a talented group of ladies.   As part of this Blog Hop all of our blogs are linked together, so that no matter where you start, as long as you keep clicking on the link for the next blog, you'll eventually work yourself all the way around, and back to where you started.  Hopefully you'll be inspired by all the amazing projects that you see, and perhaps leave a comment on each of the blogs, so we know you were there, and how you liked the projects.

For this Hop, we chose to showcase lots of NEW products from the 2014-2015 Annual Catalogue.   If you were following the links, you came to my blog from Rose Packer's Blog – isn't she amazing?!  I love Rose's work, and her fresh eye for creating.
My first project is a combination the Moonlight DSP Paper Stack, the gorgeous new In Colours -  Hello Honey & Blackberry Bliss & "Hello There!" a very cute new Hostess stamp set on page 237 of the 2014 -2015 Australian Catalogue.   
I have made a set of 3 cards using a base of Sahara Sand.   I chose to use 3 different embossing folders to create 3 different, yet similar cards.  

Do you have a favourite?  

To go along with this card set I also created 3 little matching bags, each one is made from 1 sheet of the Moonlight DSP paperstack.  I originally saw this idea on YouTube & just had to give it a try. 

I have used the cute little In Colour Clothespins to help keep the 2 basic little bags closed.  I have provided the template (below) for making the bags which hold a small chocolate or Freddo frog.  They are perfect sized for a table gift or treat.  As you can see I stepped up the middle one which is a little more intricate.  I used the scallop topper punch as a flap closure, but the other two were left open.  

And here they all are together.  I love that our range of products all match and how easy it is to make a whole party or theme from just a few core products.

I hope that you've enjoyed the projects that I've shared with you today!  I'd really appreciate it if you have the time to leave a comment, and let me know what you think.  
Next you'll be heading over to see the talents of Heather McCarthy's Blog– I know you'll love her projects!  I hope you'll come back and join us again next time….until then, Happy Stamping!
