Let’s Get Hopping 23: Use Up that DSP!

Welcome to my blog!


Today, the Let’s Get Hopping team are doing something different for our monthly hop. Show of hands, how many of us have lots of DSP hoarded away in our craft spaces?! I know I do, and possibly most of you who are here today. So, this month we’re featuring projects created using retired Designer Series Paper (DSP). You would have come from the talented Mikaela Titheridge or starting with me. Be sure to hop all the way around to be inspired to use up your DSP! 😊

I opted for a 3D project as I find them the easiest way to use up DSP quickly. Here’s my project for today…


The DSP I used is the Botanical Butterfly DSP that was a free Sale-A-Bration item from earlier this year. I created the flower using the Hot Air Balloon punch, using Bronwyn Eastley’s free tutorial, which you can find here. Here’s a closer look at the flower…


This box is actually an explosion box, and when you lift the lid, you’ll reveal a little tea light gift inside 😊


As I mentioned earlier, 3D projects are a great way to use up DSP but it’s also a great way to showcase designs on both sides. Here’s another explosion box I created, this time using the current Bird Ballad DSP…


Here’s the close up of the Petal Pink flower…


And here’s the inside of the explosion box…


I hope you enjoyed my projects today & that it has inspired you to use up all those DSP that you’ve been hoarding!

Let’s hop on over to the talented Tanya Rees to see what inspiring idea she has to use up that DSP!
