Good Day Crafty Friends

Welcome to the Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop for May. I am so excited to be hopping with the crew this month as we have a few new Design Team members who I know are going to blow your socks off with their creations.

You are currently visiting Jackie Aitken in Western Australia. If you are following the hop, you may have arrived here having just visited Monica Gale. If you are just joining us, grab a comfy seat and be sure to hop all the way through for amazing idea's and inspiring projects shared by the Be Inspired Design Team using this month's theme ANYTHING GOES.

I was so excited to have the opportunity to create with some new item while being able to mix them with a some of my favourite retiring products. The Floral Essence stamp set (item #149450)  and Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper (item #149100) will be available from the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue from June 4th.

I have added a few vellum die cuts using my favourite foliage dies from Floral Frames and the copper foil die cut labels that the sentiments have been stamped onto are from the Everything is Rosy Product Medley.  Everything else that I have used to create this collection is available in the new Catalogue.

The Perennial Essence DSP is seriously gorgeous and will make stunning gift bags and decor pieces, but I found it extremely hard to cut up and then create something with it. I decided to make some frames for the two cards using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits.

The floral images from Floral Essence have been stamped in Pineapple Punch with Grapefruit Grove applied to the centre with a sponge dauber.

The leaf stamp was borrowed from the Rooted in Nature Stamp set. All images were fussy cut and applied to the card with dimensionals.

The pillow boxes (item #147018) are perfect for those little gifts that can be awkward to wrap, plus I love decorating the pillow boxes, so any excuse lol. The fern leaf tucked behind the flower is from the Daisy Lane Stamp Set (item #149325) has been stamped in Granny Apple Green and fussy cut. The sentiment has been stamped in Sahara Sand ink onto a whisper white die cut created with the Stitched Labels Framelits.

That's it from me, crafty friends. Thanks so much for stopping by today. The Be Inspired Design Team appreciate the time you have invested to visit our blogs today, Thank You. Up next in this months Be Inspired Blog Hop is super talented Cathy Caines.
