Creative Expressions - Blog Hop Fun

Good Morning, yep it's certainly an early one lol, and yes it's been scheduled!!!  Well it's time for another amazing Creative Expressions August 2014 Blog Hop and today Julia Watts is on Create and Craft TV showing samples of our makes using the new Christmas designs from the Singles Range at Creative Expressions including seven different stamp, as you will see along the way, and certainly by what I have done, they do not just have to be used as they are but can be altered and interchanged to give lots of different options.  It's all about Christmas and the stamps are absolutely gorgeous.  I have one to show you today, one tomorrow and one Sunday. Then scroll down to the bottom to get the full details of where to go next.  Hopefully you have come from  Tracy Heaton and your next step is to go to Pam Smith, but if you get lost along the way the full list and all details are at the bottom of the page after my makes :-).
My 2nd Project is HERE :-)

Today I am showing the Creative Expressions Single Stamp Set Joy To The World,
and I decided to stamp it on fabric for a gift bag.  Now I like to sew bits on like this
but today I wanted to show that you can use glue instead of sewing.
I stamped with Archival Jet Black ink pad onto fabric, then glued it on some brown aida
type material.  Then I used 3 pieces of the Green ribbon and glued this down as well.
All the glueing of the fabric I did with a hot glue gun, but the gorgeous Creative Expressions
Swirls, pearls and white embellishments that already have sticky on them, I just used Cosmic Shimmer
Glue that glues anything, it's fantastic :-)










One randomly selected person commenting on my blog post before the closing date will win the following fabulous prize, which includes some of the new stamp designs :-)


Thank you so much for visiting my blog and taking part in the blog hop, please leave a comment below in order to be in with a chance of winning a prize.
Once you have done that, you will need to go forward to Pam Smith, to help you along the way, here is a list for the blog hop -

The blog hop started today 15th August 2014 at 6am and finishes on 19th August 2014 at 5pm.
I shall be back tomorrow with my next make with these beautiful stamps :-)
Good Luck :-)
Happy Crafting
Hugs Kezzy xxxxx

Hellooooo Kezzy! What a great idea on using the stamps to decorate this bag! It's lovely!

It's such fantastic glue! It's been lovely going on this blog hop, seeing all the different crafting techniques and ideas. Along with adding more to the favourite bookmarks! "Thank you!"
