Butterfly Gala Card


At the crop last Saturday I used new product from both the 2019 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogues. You can start purchasing and earning rewards from these catalogues starting January 3rd. I was able to make 5 cards at the crop, it doesn't sound like much but between gabbing, colouring with the Blends (so relaxing) and other stuff I thought I did really well! You will see the other cards later this month.

I decided the card needed to use colours from the Brights colour family since it was for my niece's birthday. Thankfully I had lots of cardstock with me to make the choice easier since my first plan to use Gorgeous Grape didn't work with how the designer series paper was coloured in with Stampin' Blends. The new Botanical Butterfly designer series paper is in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue and can be earned with a $60 purchase. One side of this pretty paper is coloured images and the other is black and white (perfect to add your own splash of colour!).

Supplies
Stamps: Butterfly Gala
Colours: Flirty Flamingo, Bermuda Bay
Accessories: Stampin' Blends in Flirty Flamingo, Lovely Lipstick, Old Olive, Highland Heather, Bermuda Bay, Tailored Tag Punch, Butterfly Duo Punch

Global Stamping Friends - Circles!

Welcome to our November blog hop with Global Stamping Friends! Our theme this month is circles. My card has a few circles on it, I used the Layering Circles Framelits and the Tin Tile Embossing Folder that has circle patterns. And because it's November with Remembrance Day coming I choose Poppy Parade for my flowers.


Next week is Stampin' Up!'s Onstage in Orlando, Florida! I'm so excited and almost all packed, my swaps are done and so looking forward to seeing almost 7,000 other demonstrators from around the world! Even better is that I will get to meet a few others that participate in this blog hop while at Onstage!

Oct Crop - RMHC

Thank you to everyone who spent time crafting the day away on Saturday. It was the perfect day to hide inside while rain/sleet/snow fell! This month's crop was in support of Ronald MacDonald House Charities.

For the pocket page we used the same designer series paper that participants received in their grab bags in September. The First Frost stamp set is very versatile! Works very well for any season and so many different colours.


Lisa designed the scrapbook page and the 3D item - a calendar easel. We hope everyone enjoyed making the projects.
