Oct 2021 IDEAS Blog Hop with Family Celebrations Tutorials

Hello and welcome to the IDEAS Blog Hop for October 2021 - featuring projects for on Family Celebrations!


Welcome to our IDEAS blog hop for October 2021.  This month we have curated tutorials from 10 international Demonstrators with a 50+ page full color tutorial bundle for you.  This month the theme is Family Celebrations (from Christmas to Thanksgiving to Halloween and New Babies -- and more!).  You'll want to make them all.  You will get 10 detailed tutorials with a range of projects.  The tutorials have detailed instructions in imperial (aka inches!) and metric.

Here is our sneak peek collage for the October IDEAS Tutorial Bundle.  Each photo represents one designer's tutorial in our bundle.

I made a gingerbread village, and several cards.  One suite of cards is a one-sheet-wonder from z 6 x 6.  This Gingerbread Suite is a must-have this season.   Be sure to add the White Velvet paper (for the icing on the cookies) and the adhesive sheets to your shopping cart to make it easy to make the cookies.  Brushing on a bit of Early Espresso make the cookies and the house look "baked".   Drop back tomorrow and see other cards made with these gingerbread "cookies" or biscuits for our UK and Aussie demos!

At class I included a gingerbread man cookie (a real one!).  You easily create a fun afternoon at home with friends, children, grandchildren with this tutorial!  All 1 color cardstock (Cinnamon Cider), and 1 ink (dark brown, I used Expresso).    

All the details, how-to, dimensions and tips are in my tutorial. Lots of photos to make it easy to follow along.  And I included a few extra projects.

I hope you like these projects and the projects from my fellow IDEAS demonstrators.  It's really a great bundle of inspiration for crafters or demonstrators looking for new ideas or workshop ideas.  Keep hopping so you can see all the creativity.   The bundle is about 55 pages of detailed full color instructions with 15+ projects (cards, 3D, and more!)

Would you like a copy of the instructions for these projects to use for your personal use, or even to use in your classes? Contact me at Free to customers who purchase $35, or Free to my team members, or $15 by PayPal.  

Once you have received the tutorials, please remember not to share or distribute the printed or electronic copies of these bundles. We have worked hard to provide these exclusive projects for your use. If you know someone that would like to purchase the bundle, please direct them to me to obtain their copy. Thanks for your support.

Thanks for stopping by. Please click on NEXT and visit Elizabeth in Alberta Canada the next talented IDEAS demonstrator! 

Happy Hopping! MaryKate

We had a party today for World Card Making Day and made the Christmas Kit - along with some Gingerbread cards and houses.

Many of us used just 1 die cut on the horizontal Christmas card, and so used this extra elf along with the Merriest Frames Bundle.


Base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2

Crumb Cake layer 4 x 5 1/4

Merriest frame from Soft Succulent

Cherry Cobbler (below the crumb cake) 5 1/2  3

This merriest frames bundle is a lot of fun. We are using this set Tues Oct 5 at class (3 spaces left, RSVP or join me Wed Oct 6 on with a demonstration of this hybrid bundle and several cards.

Happy World Card Making Day!
