Welcome to the Parade Of Papers! You are at Stop #15.

Hello there and welcome to Stampin' Addicts first ever blog hop! Each stop along our Parade of Papers tour features projects made with Stampin' Up's Designer Series Paper created by some talented Stampin' Up demonstrators. Designer Series Papers are buy 3 get 1 Free throughout the month of May, so we want to celebrate with you. I am stop #15 some of you will start here and some of you have hopped over from Dawn Marie's blog, which was stop #13. After checking out my blog you'll hop on over to Lyssa's blog, stop #16 and see what she has come up with. Remember though, just like Cinderella at the ball, the fun ends at Midnight EDT on Sunday.

The Stampin' Up Designer Paper I chose to feature was Good Morning Sunshine. And I don't know about you ladies, but we sure could use some sunshine around here. This paper makes me happy just looking at it!

For my first project I chose to alter a little chipboard suitcase. Isn't it cute? It looks alot like the one on the front of the new Occasions mini. I accented it with Summer Sun Cordory Buttons and 5/8" Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon for the handle and ran a piece of 3/8" Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon across the inside of the lid. If you are wondering where I got it, well Creative Express of course! My second project is hanging from the 3/8" ribbon. It's a keyring mini sticky note holder. View the close up in the next picture.
Besides the DS paper I used Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, Summer Sun, Whisper White Paper
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Stamp Set: Cheep Talk, Other Stuff: Scallop Circle Punch, 1/4", 1 1/4",
1 3/8" Circle Punches. Pacific Point Stripped Groasgrain Ribbon.
This card features the stamp set Cheep Talk also. The papers I used were Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss, and Whisper White. Ink used were Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, and Pacific Point. Ribbon used Kiwi Kiss Striped.

Just Buzzin' By happens to be a favorite set of mine. I used Chocolate Chip and Summer Sun paper to accent this card. I used Stampin' Up Water Color Crayons to color my images and blender pens to smooth them out. A little brown flower brad up in the corner gives a fun little finish to the card.

My last project is a little scrapbook made out of 3 Stampin' Up envelopes. Remember this is nationaly scrapbooking month, so I had to do some scrapbooking! I got this idea from Dawn over at her blog DOstampin with Dawn.

The colors and supplies used on this project are pretty the same as the other projects, except I did use the stamp set Lovely Letters. I hope you enjoy my projects and thank you for stopping by stop #15 and please continue on to Lyssa blog, stop #16 and see what she has come up with the Raseberry Tart Paper! For more information about the blog tour and a blog Parade list visit Stampin' Addicts. Hope you enjoy the rest of the parade.
How about some BLOG CANDY! I've got a level 2 Hostess Stamp Set called A Little Somethin' to give away. Just leave me a comment and tell me which of my projects you liked the best! I'll determine the winner on Monday by a random drawing. Winner must have a United States address.
Have a great day!

Jean from jlfstudio said...

All the projects are terrific and show off the paper well. Favorite? Hmmmm....I think it's sorta a tie. I really love the little suitcase and the cheerful yellow of the paper (the ribbon across the inside with the hanging holder is brilliant). But I guess I have to say the Envelope scrapbook since I love creative uses for envelopes and I really love the blue birds side of the paper!

Thanks for sharing the inspiration, the paper and of course the blog candy :D

Hugs and blessings - Jean
