December 2018 is my month over at Scrapbooking Global! Each creative team member was given the opportunity to pick a challenge theme and blog hop theme. This month’s challenge theme (chosen by me) is Sewing and Stitching. If you’d like to participate in our monthly challenge and hop, you can join in the fun via our Scrapbooking Global – Stampin’ Up! Facebook Group! CLICK HERE TO JOIN NOW!
I feel like I am still dreaming! Being chosen as a member of the 2019 Artisan Design Team is still unreal to me. I decided to use upcoming products from the 2019 Occasions and Sale-a-Bration Catalogs (Available January 3, 2019) to create a page with photos of my Artisan Gift Box that I received in November at OnStage in Orlando, FL.
The “Thank You So Very Much” sentiment (Butterfly Gala Bundle, shown below) seemed to be perfect for my page for showing gratitude to Stampin’ Up! for giving me this opportunity. The black & white butterflies on the left were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock and cropped using the coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch. I then stitched them to the designer series paper using my We R Stitch Happy Sewing Machine.
The colored butterflies were also cropped with the Butterfly Duet Punch. The Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, FREE with a $50 Purchase during Sale-a-Bration (also available January 3, 2019) is gorgeous! Black and White images on one side (the polka dot pattern on my page) and beautifully colored images on the other (the butterflies around my photos).
