Fancy Friday Blog Hop - Making Memories and More

Welcome back to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop!
My fancy friends and I are back!!! We loved working with each other so much that we decided to continue on with an all new blog hop to inspire you in fun new ways! These are a group of past and current Artisans that have become fast friends thru the Artisan journey. Glad to have you here! We have 9 of us this month so don't miss a one!
Each month on the last Friday, we will bring to you new challenges of all kinds (color, sketch, stamp focus, etc)! This month we were select one of the Making Memories and More Collections from the Stampin' UP Annual Catalog. I selected Perfect Days based on the colors and theme. Little did I know that I would be using them for my latest life adventure...moving across the country and starting a new job! But first a card...
I was able to cut the 4 x 6 down a bit and make it a background layer. Then I took one of the  2 x 3 cards and cut it with the Lots of Labels Framelits and my Big Shot. I adorable this stamp set sentiments and font! It is called Ribbon of Courage and it was designed with my friend Patty Bennett, that amazing million dollar achiever! 
  Then I started a 6 x 8 album of my daily journey in this new adventure. Here are the first few pages. I plan to use Perfect Days to capture my daily life in this new place. It should be therapeutic for me and occupy some of my spare time.

Would love to have you join us in the Fancy Friday Challenge so make a project and let us know in the comments if you did or post on social media somewhere and add the #FANCYFRIDAYBLOGHOP

Crafty Carrot Co Blog Hop with Crafting Forever

Welcome to The Crafty Carrot Collective Blog Hop! A selection of former Stampin' UP! Artisans from all over the world got together to form this interactive rewards program where you can learn and participate with us each month! Today we are bringing you some sneak peaks into what our July month will bring in advance so you can purchase the stamp set called Crafting Forever. If you have that stamp set, then purchase another wish list stamp set of the same value to enter the program.

 As a crafting stamping group, we all were very excited to select the Crafting Forever Stamp set for our August promotion. Down right cute!
Here is how our program works... during the month of JULY you purchase the Crafting Forever stamp set (OR product of equal or greater value) from a participating Crafty Carrot Collective demonstrator using the host code shown below. Then, in August, you will receive the program completely FREE!
  This program brings video tutorials and written instructions by 5 very talented global Stampin' UP! demonstrators into your own home so you can stamp in your own time. 
What is there not to love about that?

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

The uber talented Jennifer Frost over in Australia is next! Hop on over there and say hello!
