Welcome to the Artisan Design Team Blog Hop. If you came from Susan’s blog – isn’t she amazing? If you’re starting with me though, don’t forget to hop all the way around the world with our international team. I don’t know about you, but I’m loving all the team’s projects, this month and every month. So many gorgeous styles and projects to inspire me.
For this month’s project, we were asked to create projects using the Birthday Bouquet suite of products. This was not a problem, as this suite is one of my favourite’s in the entire Occasions catalogue. I decided to design some party decor with it. Not that it’s anyone’s birthday in particular, we all have ours at the end of the year – but birthday’s are my favourite occasion to design for.
Here’s what I did:
Anyway, I started with the banner, using the Framelits to create the base and adding stamping, gold lettering and DSP banners for my message. I then strung them onto white twine and added the Honeycomb Embellishments between each letter. I stuck two back to back to create a whole honeycomb sphere in each space.
I then carried the same theme through to my card and gift bag – made with the Gift Bag Punch Board, of course! Don’t you love those little Bow Paper Clips too – those and the honeycomb ones – LOVE!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my project today. If you’d like more ideas using this suite, or if birthday’s are your favourite occasion to create for – why not join my online class – Let’s Make An Occasion Of it! It doesn’t matter where in the world you are (it’s online via Facebook – you’ll need an account), Beginner or Advanced (video’s take you through every project), it’s full of fun techniques and gorgeous projects you’ll want to make. Plus, I include both metric and imperial measurements where possible.
