July Paper Crafting Blog Hop

Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the July Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Sandra Roberts' blog (great project, Sandra!). Welcome one and all.

This month everyone's projects feature Designer Series Paper ("DSP") from the 2020-21 Annual Catalog. I think you would agree with me that the choice is difficult as there are so many excellent choices. For my projects today, I thought I would use the Flowers for Every Season 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper. The sheet I picked from the 12 double-sided sheets is quite subtle compared to the others in this collection. It features beautiful lighter shades of Cinnamon Cider for the rose, among Misty Moonlight flowers and background, and a sprinkle of Just Jade leaves - all new 2020-22 In Colors.

My project is a simple 3" x 3" gift box. It may hold 5 or 6 cards depending on the height of your embellishments. I make Thank You cards in this size that I tuck in with my hand-delivered customer orders. I am gifting this box of cards (so no picture of the cards inside!), but I have included a picture of a couple of full size cards.

How cool is that Denim ribbon? It coordinates perfectly with Misty Moonlight! The box base and card bases are Just Jade and the accent pieces are Shaded Spruce. These colors coordinate perfectly, too! Plus, for a splash of color, I picked Melon Mambo for the cutsie butterfly and flowers cut from the Well Written dies.

As always, thank you for stopping by my blog today! Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you and your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it!. Do not forget to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Sue McDonald.
