IDEAS Blog Hop Celebrating Holidays

Hello and welcome to the IDEAS Blog Hop for July 2023 - featuring cards that celebrate holidays. It could be family celebrations, Christmas, travel anything "holiday". As you hop you'll see Santa meets the Easter Bunny, packs a bag for a seaside holiday, celebrates New Years, has a birthday and ends up at a Taco Fiesta (and more).. it's a fun theme of family holidays!

We have a range of projects from easy and fun for new stampers or more detailed designs for an avid crafter.  Each tutorial includes 1-2 projects for cards and a 3D item.

This month we have curated tutorials from 14 international Demonstrators with a 75 page full color tutorial bundle for you, featuring colorful cards.  You will get 14 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 July IDEAS Tutorial Bundle.  Each photo represents one designer's tutorial in our bundle.

I used some annual catalog paper Magnificantly Made with the "b" side to make a wreath card using Layering Leaves.  I made a matching no-adhesive box to match.  Inside the wreath card are my Christmas greetings.

All the details, how-to, dimensions and tips are in my tutorial. Lots of photos and diagrams to make it easy to follow along.    A super fun suite of 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 75 pages of detailed full color instructions with 30+ projects and so many tips.

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, 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.

Happy Hopping! MaryKate



  1. I love your card! The way it opens is so great...must try!

  2. I love the making of the leaves, thanks for the inspiration!

  3. I love wreaths, MaryKate. For any occasion, lol! It's such a great way to use the Bough punch. I'll be trying out the box, too as I've never done one without adhesive.

  4. What fun projects! I love Christmas!
