Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!  I'm so happy you're here!

Each month the team has an "open" hop...which means the sky's the limit in our product choices.  In an unusual move...for me...I chose florals...the Botanical Builders Framelits Dies...to be exact.  See...I'm not really a floral girl...but these Framelits seemed be begging for me to notice them...to pay attention to them.  So...I started looking for a bit of inspiration...and I came across the idea of a pastel tropical baby shower theme.  Hmmm...I wasn't needing to do an entire shower...but I always love to have something in my stash for a sweet new baby...something for a gift and a card.  Okay...and here it is...


Botanical Builder Framelits Dies...paired with sentiments from the Made with Love Stamp Set.


I started with the box...and a pile of die cuts...and just kept building until I got something that I loved!  I've also added two of my favorite, retiring items...1-1/4" Burlap Ribbon and the Tag a Bag Gift Box.  I've loved these boxes...so much...and don't get me started on how much I LOVE the burlap ribbon.  But...good stuff is on the way in the new Annual Catalog, too...and I know I'll love it all just as much!


And here's the must have matching card. 


If you're hopping from the beginning you've just come from the talented Steffi...and I know you'll want to hop over to see what the amazing Susan has for you!
