Artfully Layered for Around the World on Wednesday


Welcome to the latest inspiration hop for Around the World on Wednesday. If you've not followed us before, we're a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world, some from every time zone in which Stampin' Up! operates.  Each month we bring you some inspiration around a theme. This month's theme is  From the Market: inspiration from a shop or market. 

My inspiration was real serendipity. I rushed out to get some wrapping paper and ended up buying the only one at the supermarket that wasn't a happy birthday one. When I got it home, I realised that it was very close to one of my favourite bundles of the January-June Mini Catalogue,  Artfully Layered.

So here's my wrapping paper.

Beautiful, isn't it?

And here's my interpretation of it.

If you would like to see how I made it, or try one like it yourself, here's a video tutorial for you.

That's it from me in New Zealand. Next up on the hop is the wonderful Leonie Stuart in Australia.

If you get lost along the way, or would like to re-visit anyone, here's a blog roll of this month's participants.
