Heffy Doodle Blog Hop & Papercraft Inspirations Project


Update 20 July- Blog hop entries are now closed. Thank you for participating. Winner will be announced on the Heffy Doodle blog on 22 July.

Hello everyone,
I am so excited to be joining a host of crafty friends in the Heffy Doodle blog hop today. I have been looking forward to today for weeks – as I cannot wait to see what everyone else is going to make with these Heffy Doodle goodies! Click on the image below to go back to the start of the hop if you like.

The Heffy Doodle Kickstarter campaign is alive and kicking, and will be running until 31 July – so if you haven’t already preordered some cute stamps and dies, then make sure you go check out the Kickstarter campaign before the end of the month. You can also follow Heffy Doodle on social media too. They are @heffydoodlestamps on Instagram, and @heffydoodle over on facebook, twitter and pinterest.

Not only am I making a project for the Heffy Doodle blog hop, but this is also a project that is featured in this month’s edition of Papercraft Inspirations magazine. So let me extend a MASSIVE welcome to everyone who is joining us because they saw the Heffy Doodle News article in the magazine. We are thrilled to have you with us!

Wanna WIN!?

If you leave a comment at each stop along the way, you will be in with a chance to WIN! Comments will remain open until 12 noon BST on 20th July and the winner will be announced on 22nd July on the Heffy Doodle Blog. The winner will receive an exclusive Heffy Doodle cotton tote and a set of 12 Distress Oxides! Entries are open worldwide. 


If you are following along on the hop, you would have come from the awesome Lizi over at the Love From Lizi blog, and if not – don’t fear – you can start at the beginning by visiting the Heffy Doodle blog – just click HERE!

I have actually got two projects today – because after I made the card, I had a few scraps on my table that I simply couldn’t waste – so I made a matching pillow box to coordinate with this fun card! The full instructions are available in the video at the bottom of this post.

I am using two stamp sets from Heffy Doodle – first the Unbearable Without You set which has lots of fun crafty images. I white heat embossed the images onto my background and then created an ombre effect using my distress inks. I also added the SPIN ME message from the Interactively Yours stamp set – these images are so fun for interactive cards!

Did you know that you can stamp different expressions onto this cute bear? So on one side of the spinner is a sweet, concerned looking bear, and on the other side is a happy chappie with a paint brush tucked into his paws! I love tucking things into his paws – it makes this set so versatile!

The front of the card says I MISS YOU, and on the inside I have used some of the other sentiments that are included in this stamp set. I have decided to make it say ”I miss you.. so much that I can BEARLY craft!”. 🙂 teeehee!

When I had this card all finished, there was a left over piece of card with all the crafty supplies embossed onto it – and there was also some pink cardstock on my table – so I grabbed a pillow box die and some craft foam and decided to also make a coordinating box with a shaker panel on the front! I think this pillow box would be perfect for holding a small gift!

I used the same sequins (from Honey Bee Stamps) and the same colour scheme to make sure both projects matched nicely – but for the image I used a different bear that is in the Unbearable Without You set from Heffy Doodle.

I also added two of the smaller images from the Interactively Yours stamp set – one that says ‘SHAKE ME’ and one that says ‘I have a surprise inside!’ – aren’t they sweet?!

I hope you have enjoyed my projects and next up is the wonderful



and in case you want to see where you are in the order of hopping, here is the full list of all the participating bloggers. Thanks again for joining us, and don’t forget to leave a comment so you can be in with a chance to win!
