Artisan Design Team Blog Hop - Watercolor Florals

Hello and welcome back! It's time for another Artisan Design Team blog hop, this time sharing our floral projects from the Stampin' Up Facebook page. You're in for a treat because we have so much talent and so many different styles represented by these 20 women from around the globe. Please keep hopping through all 20 so you don't miss a thing! Be sure to use something like Google Translate for those blogs not in your native language. Also, you can find all of our projects for the year in one easy place, on our Pinterest board. You might have just arrived from Krista Frattin, and I know you loved her fresh designs as much as I did.

We had several different flower stamp sets to choose from this month, and my projects today feature the Botanical Blooms Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies.

Memories in the Making...and Cards...and Gifts!

How do you record your memories? Do you use and love Project Life by Stampin’ Up? I’ve been making scrapbook pages and Project Life albums for a few years now. I have to say that using Project Life makes the whole process easier. I can start with pockets sized for my pictures, coordinating cards and accessories and so many of the creative decisions are already made. I love the variety of kits that Stampin’ Up! creates every year, and the Project Life Memories in the Making Photopolymer Bundle from the Occasions catalog is no exception.

This week we decided to focus on all forms of memory keeping including Project Life, traditional Scrapbooking, mini albums, etc. Friday, March 4th is International Scrapbooking Day, so we knew this would be perfect timing! This is also our "free" week, so we could use products from our box of goodies we received or add to it with anything current. I have been using the Memories in the Making bundle of products lately, so I made another 2 pages of Project Life using those products.
