Stampin' UP! Artisan Blog Hop - A December Finale

Welcome back to the FINAL 2015-2016 Stampin' UP Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! 
I was so blessed to work with these wonderful and talented ladies this year! We enjoyed creating and inspiring with amazing Stampin' UP products and sharing with you all here! Be sure to get Google Translate so that you can read in your language all about how they created their last projects too. Please keep hoppin' thru them all....you do not want to miss anyone of them!

This week we are showcasing our last Artisan projects for the Stampin' UP Facebook Page this month. For this project, the team could focus on a couple of things: Fancy Frosted Designer Series Paper, It's a Celebration Stamp Set or Hello December Project Life Collection. I am on a Project Life kick right now so I opted to continue with a trio of projects.

A card where I used a card of the collection to make my own washi tape on top of a 3x4 printed greeting card from the PL Collection. I add my favorite Knitted Cable TIEF in white on the back layer. 

A Project Life 6 x8 page where I share a fun holiday photo of me and kept it simple with just a few of the cards from the collection.

A mini snow "box" made with the Clear Treat boxes, some Perfect Pines Framelit Dies trees and the Mica flakes. I love snowglobes so this was fun to make! Make one yourself and try not to shake it too many times! I dare you! Here are some close ups for you:



  
Merry Christmas from me to you!  
Thank you for following the 2015-2016 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! I am one proud team lead and mum of this Global Artisan Design Team from all over the world! I truly adore each one of these ladies! I will cherish this time forever!

My 3 year run on the Stampin' UP! Artisan Design Team has come to an end with this post. Not going to lie, I am going to miss it! REALLY MISS IT! (tissue please) 
I am forever grateful to have served Stampin' UP! on the past three Artisan Design Teams. I have grown as a cardmaker/concept artist/designer in so many ways! I have gained many sisterhood friendships with each of these incredibly talented and sweet women all thru my 3 years and I love each of them dearly!  (more tissues) I have found huge support and encouragement among my followers, my peers and my local peeps. Each comment left on posts, meant the world to me and more then I could ever express! I am truly blessed and humbled to have had this life changing experience! Thank you Stampin' UP for this incredible journey and believing in me thru it all! 

But don't fret, I am not going anywhere! Many things on the horizon for me...Fancy Friday Blog hop, Creation Station Blog hop, The Crafty Carrot Collective (see below), Stampin' Up! Contracted Concept Art Work (oh yeah!), and my own Stampin' UP! business to boot! Thanks for stopping by here over the past 3 years, getting to know me thru it all and I hope you will come back for more!

Inspire. Create. Share. That's what I love to do.
Cindy

Cindy, I don't even know where to begin. It has been a wild ride over the past three years and I am so thrilled that I can call you one of very best friends. You are such an amazing woman and a great leader and I know that God has amazing things in store for you. I look forward to seeing you soon and I wish you the best in the new year. XOXO

The snow globe box? Just. Wow.

Cathy Caines said...

Oh Cindy. You are amazing. I heart you. And also, my FF project this week would have been much better in a snow box. LOL But I didn't think of that. you did!
