Share What You Love, Fancy Friday Blog Hop

Welcome to another round of the Fancy Friday blog hop! We are a group of past and present Stampin' Up! Artisans who love to bring you fresh inspiration each month. This May, we are inspiring you pull out those designer series papers and make pretty things with them!

It's a huge goal of mine right now to get my collection of patterned papers off the shelf and turned into projects.  While looking through my stash, I came across some sheets of this beautiful blue and green Share What You Love pattern.  It is a heavy weight paper with a lovely translucent, pearlised finish. I wanted to show it off one last time before it retires on Monday.


It's not just your last chance to order these gorgeous Share What You Love papers, but also the coordinating embellishment kit and the Lovely Floral embossing folder featured here too.  Buy yours today before they are gone!  Order through my online store and have your stamping supplies delivered straight to your door, wherever you are, Australia wide.

This project was inspired by my the fabulous Lauren Alarid.  No one does blues and greens quite like her!
