Stampin' UP! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop- Sharing Sweet Thoughts

Hey there!  Welcome back to another Stampin' UP! Artisan Design Team Blog hop!  If you are hopping with us today then you may have arrived here from the fabulous Cathy Caines.  Isn't she amazing? As we are a group of 20 demonstrators from around the world- our blogs are written in many different languages.  Please be sure to use Google Translate so that you can follow along in your language.  You don't wanna miss out on any of the fabulous details!

Today we are sharing lots of gorgeous projects created using the Sharing Sweet Thoughts Stamp Set. This sweet stamp set is the Ronald McDonald House Chairities (RMHC) stamp set.  For those of you who do not know what the RMHC is- the Ronald McDonald House Chairities keeps families close to each other and surrounded by love when their children are receiving medical treatment far from home.  Each year Stampin' UP! supports the RMHC by donating time and money.

When I saw this stamp set in the catalog the first thing that came to mind was kids.  I thought how fun would it be to create something for a child to use!  I remember when I was little I was obsessed with office supplies so it was only natural that I wanted to create mini notebooks!

These aren't just any notebook either!  As you can see from the picture above- they are also contain a fun feature that any child would be sure to love- a shaker!  They are absolutely adorable!

Here are a few closeups!

See this one below?  It actually has life like looking grass!  To create this effect- I simply used Paper Snips to make fringe from my Garden Green Card Stock.  I then curled the grass in different directions using the bone folder.  Super cute with the butterfly peeking up from behind the grass!

See how all the strawberries look in the jar?  To create this effect- I stamped the strawberries image twice, colored them with Watercolor Pencils and an Aqua Painter, then cut them out and intertwined them together.  Super simple and fun!

I hope you have enjoyed my mini notebooks!  If you're ready to continue along on the hop, click the Artisan button below to head on over to the amazingly talented Holly Stene!
