Stampin' Up! Spring 2017 Occasions Catalog Featuring Dragonfly Dreams - Blogging Friends Blog Hop January 2017

Happy New Year!
Welcome back to another Blogging Friends Blog Hop!

I want to welcome all of you new visitors to my blog!  Thanks for following along our Hop!  Be sure to Subscribe on the right hand side of my blog so you don't miss out on our Blog Hop next month!  We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators and we will be bringing you fun paper crafting ideas using Stampin' Up! products on the 1st of every month.  I hope you have been enjoying the Hop so far.  So many fun ideas from so many talented crafters!!!  And, a special guest appearance from Janet Wakeland!!!  I'm so excited!  I just love her!

You should have arrived here from Mary's Blog.  
I always love her projects!

This month, we are sharing projects made with one of the fabulous new stamp sets in the new Occasions or Sale-A-Bration Catalogs that are going live on January 4th!  Oh I just can't wait you guys!  There are so many gorgeous new products & Sale-A-Bration is my favorite time of year!

I decided to play with the brand new Dragonfly Dreams Bundle.  I think this set is going to be a favorite for many!  The stamp set and the coordinating framelits are absolutely gorgeous!  You can save 10% when you buy the stamp set & framelits together for the bundle price of $46.75 AND since Sale-A-Bration is also starting if you just add a staple like an ink pad or adhesive to your order, your order will be $50+ so you can choose an item from the 
Sale-A-Bration catalog for FREE!  I just love this time of year!!!

I have all of the products I used listed at the end of this post, but I just love how the color scheme came together!  I used Basic Black, So Saffron, Smoky Slate & Bermuda Bay.  That awesome background dotted stamp can make anyone an artist!

I loved how this card came out so much so I decided to create a few more using another one of the great sentiments in this stamp set!

In the video below, I share step by step how to create this card.  I did a lot of creative "playing" with this card, so my video is a little longer than usual but grab a cup of coffee and check it out :)

Next up on the Blog Hop is Deborah!
