#1 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Pootlers Team Blog Hop – Geared Up Classic Garage
Wahoo! It’s Team Hop Time!
This is the point in the brand new catalogue calendar that our team hops together to showcase loads of different craft projects with you and I couldn’t be more excited.
Down at the bottom you’ll see a list of all the participants that Hannah McCurley has created for us. Don’t forget to click on everyone’s links!
And when I was pondering my project for this hop, I decided to go a little left field and create a card for my husband to share with you too.
I had a bit of a scramble at the end as he came home from work a bit before I had finished it, so I was calling out “I’ll be down in a minute” as he’s walking upstairs to my office. But I got it done and hidden under my grid paper before he saw it. Though he managed to catch me in the act of taking photos before I’d given it to him!!!
And he really loves it!
If you’re not familiar with my husband’s hobby, he is a motorbike fan. He has 2 that he rides regularly but he also bought the frame and guts of a bike a while back and spent about 8 months converting the frame and the box of bits (literally it was a box of bits!) into a cafe racer style bike, not dissimilar to the one on the DSP in the background.
He’s very much a tinkerer of bikes and his garage is directly below my office, so on the odd occasion, we can hear him on my videos when he’s in there! And if he’s particularly noisy, yes I will mention it on camera!
However, getting back to the card, or more specifically the DSP, when I was making it, Jack (my 15 year old) had come in to the office to chat to me and he fell on the paper and was rifling through it all. He’s a huge fan of car movies and clearly is a bit of a petrol head – something I was unaware of – as he was telling me all the types of car and then going to google to show me the full colour versions of them. It’s not easy to see in the catalogue pictures, but there’s a black sheet that has the same pencil style imagery as this bike style. He loved it and promptly pinched a couple of my sheets!
Anyway, Chris loved the card, and the little tools embellishments. Jack pinched some sheets (so that’s high praise right there too!) and I hope you like it too!
And don’t forget, stamp the inside and the envelope too….!
