Cottage Rose for Around the World on Wednesday

Thank you for joining in with the latest hop from the crew at Around the World on Wednesday. If you haven't hopped with us before, we're a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from every time zone in the world where Stampin' Up! operates. You're here with me, in New Zealand.

Each month we present a different theme to inspire you to create.
This month, we're using a sketch for inspiration.

I like a sketch challenge so was looking forward to this one. As it happened, the Cottage Rose bundle arrived on my doorstep just as I was thinking about what to do. I'd been trying to talk myself out of buying it, ever since I saw it. Now that I've caved in and bought it, what I've learned is to listen to my heart when it comes to buying sets! It is just beautiful to work with!

 I used strip of Basic White embossed with the Timeworn Type embossing folder for the background horizontals. The Abigail Rose DSP had plenty to choose from for the circles - such lovely soft colours. 

You'll have noticed in the close-up that this card has sprouted a 90 in the top left. That's because as I was making it, I decided that I liked it enough to give it to my very special mother-in-law for her 90th birthday. It's cut from Gold Foil, embossed with Timeworn Type, using the Big Number Framelits. These are a retired item but these, like the Big Letter Framelits are indispensable items in the scrapbooking room. 

Next up on the hop is the lovely Leonie Stuart from Australia. Pop on over and see what she's done with the sketch.

If you live in New Zealand and don't have a Stampin' Up Demonstrator, I'd love to be yours. I can help you with ideas, get you catalogues and provide you with Stampin' Up products. You can leave a message in the comments or contact me using any of the methods listed in the Contact Me tab at the top of the page. You can shop with me from anywhere in New Zealand by clicking on the SHOP NOW button in the sidebar or on any of the products below.

Should you get lost on the hop, or want to revisit, here's a list of the participants.
