Another New Feature - My New Midweek Make-Over

Wed 12 Oct 2016

Hello, and welcome to the first of my Midweek Make Over posts! 

Foral Boutique Midweek Make Over Preview

This is going to be my third regular blog feature, and each week I'll be revisiting a card or other project that I made a while back, and remaking and updating it with current Stampin' Up! products. 

Here's the card that I wanted to update for today's post.

Stampin' Up! Happenings Kit - Birthday

It's a card from a kit that Stampin' Up! did a couple of years back. i love that our kits make it so easy to make gorgeous cards, even if you don't have previous crafting experience (you can see all of Stampin' Up!'s current kits here), and I had loved this design so I thought it would be a perfect place to start.

Here's my Make Over:

Floral Boutique Midweek Make Over

I love this paper! These two patterns are both from the lovely Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper pack. I've had this pack for a while, but for some reason not got round to using it before this. It's lush, honestly! And don't forget that DSP is on offer this month - for every three packs you order, you can choose one free.

The original card used Glimmer Paper for a bit of sparkle, but I've substituted Gold Sequin Trim, and instead of the button, I found a teensy spiral that was left over from a Swirly Scribbles die cut. I needed a splash of colour to make the DSP pop, and I love Night of Navy with Calypso Coral. So there you have it! Everything that I've used is available in my Online Shop, and you can see all the details at the bottom of this post.

Thanks for dropping in! I hope you're enjoying my new look blog, and don't forget there is still time to enter my Colour Combination Challenge or my Sketch Challenge if you'd like to. I'd love to see your creations!

See you soon... xx
