Leadership Artisan Samples 2015- From the Garden

Thanks for dropping by today for our Friday Leadership share week 3! Only one more week to go & you will have gotten to see everything we created for the beautiful display boards at this years Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference.
Well this was my most challenging product assignment & it took me a really long to figure out what to do with the From the Garden stamp set & Handpicked Framelits but I managed to get something done so I was happy. Take a look...
I love this picture of my girls & I really wanted to keep the page very simple so their little faces were the stars. :) 

Those little framelits make the teeny tiniest little shovel & pots you have every seen, lets face it tiny things are just totally adorbs!

This card was about me wishing for some beautiful Spring weather. Lol!
Well that's all I have for today but make sure you go check out what the other gals have created & have a great weekend!

Fancy Friday- Technique Spotlight!

Welcome to this month's Fancy Friday Blog Hop!
The gals decided on "Techniques" for the theme & since it seems to be all the rage right now I jumped on the Bokeh bandwagon. Lol!
First step was random sponging on Whisper White cardstock with Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, & Crisp Cantaloupe.
But after trying the original way with the sponging of white craft ink & plastic stencils & all that craziness I decided to cheat a bit & use the cute dots from the Best Year Ever stamps set paired with the dot from the Work of Art set. I stamped them in White Craft but they didn't jump out as much as I hoped so then I added a bit of White Embossing powder to some of the spots. Over all I was happy with how it came together! Thanks for taking a look!
I am sure Becky has created something beyond amazing so lets hop on over to check it out!
 p.s. Don't forget to check out the samples the North America Artisans created for the Stampin Up Leadership Conference!

Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop- More Butterflies!

Welcome to this week's Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!
Glad you have joined us!
If you follow my blog you may know how much I absolutely adore butterflies! So since this was the last project for this months fabulous box I had to spotlight my favorite product again- the Butterfly Basics thinlit dies!

I wanted to fancy up some clothespins to give as gifts but wasn't quite sure about how to package them I took one of our chevron bags & added some Fast Fuse along the sides & folded it up. I used a couple staples to make extra sure it wasn't going anywhere. Added a little more embellishing, a couple chocolate squares & clipped the pin on the front. So easy but still a lovely token of appreciation!
My next project is a birthday card I created for a friend & you may have gotten a sneak peek if you follow me on Instagram- 

A couple of fun things going on here...

My daughter accidentally cut one of the rosettes that come with the Artisan Embellishment Kit a little too close so it started to come apart but it was so cute I decided to save it & use the little bit that was still in tact as show above. I took the other part & attached it under my sentiment banner & it made an adorable little scalloped edge ribbon!

Last little trick is I colored my Something Borrowed Embellishments with my Coastal Cabana Blendabilities! I have done a few different colors now & they are so cute!
Well that's all I have for now so let's go see what Sarah is up to~
