Fancy Friday Blog Hop Top 5 New Picks

Welcome back to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop!
My fancy friends and I are back!!! We loved working with each other so much that we decided to continue on with an all new blog hop to inspire you in fun new ways! These are a group of past and current Artisans that have become fast friends thru the Artisan journey. Glad to have you here! We have 11 of us this month so don't miss a one!
Each month on the last Friday, we will bring to you new challenges of all kinds (color, sketch, stamp focus, etc)! This month we were select our TOP FIVE products from the NEW Stampin' UP! catalog and use at least one of them in a project. This was a super hard task to just pick 5 but here are the ones that I was most excited about when I saw them. In random order...

I adore the large font and all of the images that coordinate with 
the Whole Lot of Lovely Suite on page 86-87.
I have been waiting for gingham ribbon to make a comeback over the past few years. It comes in Smoky Slate (shown) and Night of Navy.
You had me at dots. I really like this smaller version size.
Bright, shiny, fun, patterns like the dots, and if you turn it over, you have good ole Kraft for layering (the plain Kraft cardstock retired)
Super large fun font and when mixed with the NEW Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set from the Foil Frenzy Suite on page 76-77, it is a win win for easy and simple birthday cards.

And with this last one comes my project for this month....
I took that Happy Birthday and the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp set but made a more masculine birthday card. I paired it with the NEW Wood Texture Designer Series Paper Stack and the same color combo you can find on page 158-159.

Would love to have you join us in the Fancy Friday Challenge so make a card with your top 5 list and let us know in the comments if you did or post on social media somewhere and add the #FANCYFRIDAYBLOGHOP

Thanks for stopping by my post for the Fancy Friday blog hop!

Crafty Carrot Co Blog Hop with Pieces and Patterns

Welcome to The Crafty Carrot Collective Blog Hop! A selection of former Stampin' UP! Artisans from all over the world got together to form this interactive rewards program where you can learn and participate with us each month! Today we are bringing you some sneak peaks into what our July month will bring in advance so you can purchase the stamp set called Pieces and Patterns. If you have that stamp set, then purchase another wish list stamp set of the same value to enter the program.

 We are so excited to offer brand new products from the Stampin' UP 2017-2018 Annual Catalog! There is so much to choose from but we could not pass up using this very cute set first! 

Here is how our program works... during the month of JUNE you purchase the Pieces and Patterns stamp set (OR product of equal or greater value) from a participating Crafty Carrot Collective demonstrator using the host code shown below. Then, in July, you will receive the program completely FREE!

  This program brings video tutorials and written instructions by 5 very talented global Stampin' UP! demonstrators into your own home so you can stamp in your own time. 
What is not to love about that? Check out our little video!


Inspire. Create. Share. That's what I love to do.

The uber talented Jennifer Frost over in Australia is next! Hop on over there and say hello!
