Welcome to the Fancy Friday blog hop.  If this is your first visit to our hop, welcome!  We are a group of past and present Stampin' Up! Artisans who love to craft together and bring you inspiration on the last Friday of every month.

This month we are all bringing you our favourite picks from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.  It was hard to narrow it down to just one item, so I have used two on my project!  I simply love the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper as my free choice but not because I love Butterflies (which I do but....) I love that one side of each sheet is coloured and the other, black & white.  This gives you options to use the colour combinations that Stampin' Up! have suggested or, as I have done, select your own colours to coordinate with your project designs.

I have kept my card really simple and just coloured in the background of this beautiful paper using one Stampin' Blend, the light Granny Apple Green.  I chose that colour because it was the closest match to the Lemon Lime Twist Organdy Ribbon, another free SAB selection, and the Lemon Lime Twist Gingham Gala Adhesive Backed Sequins.  This reminded me of the mindful colouring books!  I enjoyed doing this so much I then went on to make a card in every colour from the Organdy Ribbon Pack!  The two cards below are Calypso Coral and Balmy Blue.

If you want the supplies to recreate my project, I would be delighted to be your demonstrator.  Click on the pictures below to shop my New Zealand store 24/7!
