Be Inspired Blog Hop

10 August 2017

Welcome to the Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop. You may have just arrived here from my beautiful friend Sarah Berry from the UK. If you are starting here please make sure you hit the next button at the bottom of this post and hop all the way around. 

The theme for this hop is 'Be Inspired by Architecture'.

The upcoming Holiday Catalogue is loaded with fresh new holiday and seasonal products that are set to knock your socks off!! When I first laid eyes on the A Beachy Christmas stamp set I was bursting with excitement - I know Stampin' Up! didn't make this just for me, but lets run with that idea! *wink

The architecture I was inspired by is obviously these little adorable beach houses. I have two amazing surfing brothers and we have been discussing going on a sibling road trip - in stamp land this is what it looks like - we all have our own beach cottage, which is just perfect because they could get up early and go surfing I could sleep in! (No, I don't surf, but if I did you all know my board would be pink right?!)

I stamped the houses with Black Archival Ink and lined them up using the Stamp-a-ma-jig and coloured them with a Blender Pen and ink from the lids.

Customers - you can Join and put this stamp in your Starter Kit or you will have to wait until next month to order!

Next up to 'Be Inspired' by is my awesome friend Brian King from the the US. You will love his project for this theme this week and now I've added the stamp set he used to my wish list!
