Welcome to my very first Blog Hop! I am super excited to be apart of something like this and to be completely honest, I’m also a little scared….shhh don’t tell anyone!
But being a part of Stampin’ Up is to love what we do & share what we love! That is just what I am going to continue to do. I have made some lovely new friends on my journey so far, all while learning some new techniques on how to make lovely cards.
So I am excited to start this off with the ESAD 2017 Retirement List Blog Hop!
I just know that I am going to be amazed by the other creative demonstrators on this blog hop showcasing some of our products on our retirement list and I just know you will be too!
Some of my favourite sets are retiring, which means they are on special! Who doesn’t love a sale?
Oh So Succulent teamed with the Succulent Framelits Dies are high on my list as a retirement fav!
Just look at this pretty Mother’s Day card using this set!
Also on the retirement list is my all time favourite, falling petals embossing folder, I have used this heaps, its so versatile and very effective. Sadly, the doilie I used on this card was also on the retirement list, I went to stock up some more but they had already sold out! There is, however similar delicate white doilies in the new catalogue so look out for those.
Look what else you can make with this set, a cute little succulent in a pot!
Makes a lovely gift for Mum or for teachers, the possibilities are endless! This little pot was purchased from Kmart in Australia, a little polystyrene ball in the pot with some white pebbles from Bunnings . The succulent was made with Mint Macaron cardstock (retiring) and I used sponge daubers with Tip Top Taupe ink pad (retiring) and Rich Razzleberry to create the colours on the leaves. Finished off with some burlap ribbon and a bow in Sweet Sugarplum (retiring)all put together with a hot glue gun.
It’s cute right?
Thanks for stopping by my first blog hop.
Next up is the lovely Ellen Woodbridge, lets see what she has created!
