Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop- More Butterflies!

Welcome to this week's Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!
Glad you have joined us!
If you follow my blog you may know how much I absolutely adore butterflies! So since this was the last project for this months fabulous box I had to spotlight my favorite product again- the Butterfly Basics thinlit dies!

I wanted to fancy up some clothespins to give as gifts but wasn't quite sure about how to package them I took one of our chevron bags & added some Fast Fuse along the sides & folded it up. I used a couple staples to make extra sure it wasn't going anywhere. Added a little more embellishing, a couple chocolate squares & clipped the pin on the front. So easy but still a lovely token of appreciation!
My next project is a birthday card I created for a friend & you may have gotten a sneak peek if you follow me on Instagram- 

A couple of fun things going on here...

My daughter accidentally cut one of the rosettes that come with the Artisan Embellishment Kit a little too close so it started to come apart but it was so cute I decided to save it & use the little bit that was still in tact as show above. I took the other part & attached it under my sentiment banner & it made an adorable little scalloped edge ribbon!

Last little trick is I colored my Something Borrowed Embellishments with my Coastal Cabana Blendabilities! I have done a few different colors now & they are so cute!
Well that's all I have for now so let's go see what Sarah is up to~
 p.s. Don't forget to check out the samples the North America Artisans created for the Stampin Up Leadership Conference!
