Creating Kindness Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my blog!

I was asked earlier in the year to be a guest designer with the Creating Kindness Blog Hop. I was delighted and accepted there and then. It is truly an honour to have my work hopping alongside such awesomely talented and beautiful people. Pinch me as I think I am still in shock. I would like to thank the Creating kindness Design Team for inviting me to be the guest designer for August 2019.

I love the name of this design team. And creating kindness is on the top of my list whether creating or sending a card. Or even helping others to create and learn. A card in the mail always makes the recipient feel appreciated. I also love to get together with my amazing team and watch them Create Kindness and share in there own special way. They are wonderful ladies I am so happy to call friends.

The theme of this hop is Music! 

I love music and going to live concerts or festivals. Those that know me well know that I have a varied taste in music. I always listen to music when cleaning my home as this makes the job much more enjoyable.I often sisng along whilst I am creating too! The neighbours might not be so happy about the bad singing though!

So, this challenge really appealed to me. Then I set out looking for inspiration in the Annual Catalogue. I found it in the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper sheet music. The beautiful colours and vintage feel was perfect for this challenge.

I have been wanting to say a special thank you to a friend who has supported me amazingly since becoming a demonstrator. She is someone that loves music and plays an instrument too. So I thought this would be perfect for her.

I love making frames out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I glued the DSP onto a piece of Mossy Meadow Card Stock to stabilise this frame before cutting it out with the Big Shot™.

The Magnolia stamp worked beautifully with the Mossy Meadow DSP. And the Bird Ballad Key Trinket the perfect little accent. You could say that this card is quite a fusion of different suites in the Annual Catalogue. And that is another reason to love what Stampin' Up!® has done so beautifully the Annual Catalogue!
