Fancy Friday Blog Hop - Trendy Large Font

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 just 8 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 use a stamp set that had a large font. I selected the Sorry For Everything Stamp set. Take a look below at it. It is a great stamp set of sentiments but not a single supporting image. I then picked Jar of Love with those beautiful layered flowers, soft color combo of Peekaboo Peach, Calyspo Coral, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry and Night of Navy, and the Wood Textures Designer Series Stack. The Jar of Love also has a matching Framelit set called Everyday Jars but I wanted to just show how you could use the stamp set alone.
And here is what I came up with:
Couple of tips: Stamp off the Calypso Coral flower layer before stamping on the full inked Peekaboo Peach. Stamp off the Daffodil Delight with the two solid flowers image and then the next layer in Crushed Curry in full ink. I also stamped off the tiny flower with Night of Navy which makes a softer blue. One last thing I needed to add was the pieces of Delicate Doilies. Something I learned from the AMAZING AWESOME INSPIRING FANTASTIC SPECTACULAR Kimberly Van Diepen!!! "Just add a doily to it!" Love that lady!
I also creating a matching envelope with the remaining piece of Wood Texture pattern DSP and stamped the images right on it. 
Would love to have you join us in the Fancy Friday Challenge so make a project and let us know in the comments if you did or post on social media somewhere and add the #FANCYFRIDAYBLOGHOP

Did you see that little heart in the stamp set? Perfect for a stamped background!

Fancy Friday Blog Hop - Making Memories and More

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 9 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 one of the Making Memories and More Collections from the Stampin' UP Annual Catalog. I selected Perfect Days based on the colors and theme. Little did I know that I would be using them for my latest life adventure...moving across the country and starting a new job! But first a card...
I was able to cut the 4 x 6 down a bit and make it a background layer. Then I took one of the  2 x 3 cards and cut it with the Lots of Labels Framelits and my Big Shot. I adorable this stamp set sentiments and font! It is called Ribbon of Courage and it was designed with my friend Patty Bennett, that amazing million dollar achiever! 
  Then I started a 6 x 8 album of my daily journey in this new adventure. Here are the first few pages. I plan to use Perfect Days to capture my daily life in this new place. It should be therapeutic for me and occupy some of my spare time.

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

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...

#1 LOTS OF LOVE STAMP SET
I adore the large font and all of the images that coordinate with 
the Whole Lot of Lovely Suite on page 86-87.
#2 GINGHAM RIBBON
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.
#3 POLKA DOT BASICS TEXTURED IMPRESSIONS EMBOSSING FOLDER
You had me at dots. I really like this smaller version size.
#4 FOIL FRENZY SPECIALTY DESIGNER SERIES PAPER
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)
#5 HAPPY BIRTHDAY THINLITS DIE
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
