Home Decor SU Style Blog Hop June 2018

I'm really excited to join in with this 'first' Home Décor Blog Hop today, with fellow Demonstrators globally sharing their creative projects.

Recently, I organised a Tutorial Share with members of my Stampin' Up! Team who wanted to participate.  We were all using the beautiful products in the Share What You Love suite.
This is my finished project showing using lots of products from the Share What You Love suite.  Unfortunately their is glare on the glass so I'm sharing the photo before it went in the frame.
The Share What You Love Designer Series Paper #146926 will certainly be a best seller I'm sure, and the fact it is here for 12-months of the Annual Catalogue, is wonderful.  I'm sure I will never get tired of it.  Take a look in the Annual Catalogue on pages 176-178.

The background use a whole sheet of the beautiful Designer Series Paper.  I tried to use a fairly neutral pattern rather than one of the gorgeous 'busy' patterns, so that it didn't detract from the mini artwork pieces.

It's hard to see detail in the overall view so I have split into 3 rows.
The first piece has been stamped using an image from the Love What You Do stamp set #148042. Flowers were cut by hand from the Designer Series Paper and tiny Basic Pearl Jewels #144219.  The middle piece features a metallic floral embellishment from Share What You Love Embellishment Kit #146928 and the embossing on the right uses the Lovely Floral Textured Embossing Folder #148048.
The stamp in the centre here was available as a Limited Edition for one month but do hope they bring it back !  Did you see the gorgeous Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Velvet Ribbon #147016 ?
More Textured Embossing here, with a Share What You Love Artisan Pearl #146927, in 5 pastel colours which compliment this suite.  The end panel features one of the Pearlised Doilies #146936.  To make it fit onto my panel here, I have cut away the outer layer - there are so many different variations with these, it's amazing.

I'm now excitedly waiting Mr UPS to arrive with my next exciting order of customers and my orders.  Creative 'play time' pencilled in for the weekend, ready to show off some more gorgeous new products.

I hope you have been inspired by my post.  I had lots of fun making and have more frame ideas in the planning stage.  We do really appreciate reading your lovely comments on our posts if you have time to add at the bottom of this post.
