Welcome to the Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop





Yep... we're back for another month and I'm really excited to be part of it again! This month we are showcasing awesome Stampin'Up products from our newly released Annual Catalogue (which only came out on the 2nd June!), and its a fun challenge we are doing this time. It's called "Perfect Pairs" and the idea is that we pair existing products with something brand new from the Annual Catalogue. The whole purpose is to inspire you to create your own gorgeous projects!  Of course everything you see in the hop is available for purchase... just contact me to order yours!

I've really indulged myself with this card!  Those who know me well will know that I favour softer colours, and adore vellum.. especially if its embossed!  So I used one of my favourite flourish sets in the background and then layered up the butterflies from our new Watercolor Wings set with the matching framelits.

Here's the products I used for the challenge we were presented with this month:

Existing products: 'Flowering Flourishes' stamp set, 'Choose Happiness' Stamp set. White Vellum, Gold Foil, Fancy Foil Designer Vellum, Blushing Bride Cardstock, Shimmery White Cardstock, Gold Metallic Twine, Gold embossing Powder, Blushing Bride and Whisper white inks.

New products: 'Watercolor Wings' stamp set, and Bold Butterfly framelits

Any items you wish to order are available in my online store... click HERE to go shopping!  Thank you so much for visiting my blog... I hope you like my creations this month!  Visit the next blog in the hop by finding my name on the list below and then clicking on the next name after mine.  I have to tell you I have been blown away every month by the amazing talents from this group of bloggers.... what a privilege to be part of this group!

I also have an idea in my head for a Scrapbook Page with this theme... let me know when you comment if you'd like to see it!  And head over to my FACEBOOK PAGE to see more of what I create day-to-day.... its the best way to keep up with my crazy life and awesome business adventures.

Here's a close up of my card for you:



Here's the full list of blogs in the BlogHop so you can easily move to the next one (or go back to another on the list if you NEED to see their creations again lol)
