Lovely part of the story

 Welcome to the Paper Crafting monthly blog hop's January 2019 hop featuring Stampin' Up's Sale-a-Bration sets and products.   Sale-a-Bration is the time of year that you earn FREE items for each $50 order.  I am glad you landed here.  If you came here from Terri Stewart's US hop, I'm sure her post project was great.  First I hale from the wonderful state of Texas in the United States. I've been an independent Stampin' Up demonstrator for almost 15 and 2/3 years.  I've only been blogging for a little while and just realized this is my 100th blog post.  Help me celebrate by commenting and I'll choose a random commenter to receive a free gift from me.

     I would like to share the inspiration behind my card.   I received Lovely Lattice from the prize patrol at the OnStage event in November.  It is one of the Sale-a-Bration sets you can earn for a $50 order. Who doesn't love FREE?!  I've seen lots of examples using the big flower basket stamp from this set but none that really used the other 2 stamps.  As one of them was a decorated border line, and the name of the set is Lovely Lattice, I decided to use it with my Stamparatus and either do a grid or outline with it.  I also wanted to use the little flower from this set w/ one of the sentiments from the Part of the Story set.  As I was playing with that idea, my design changed but I like it and I used the 2 stamps I wanted to use.

   Please return to my blog tomorrow to find out how to make this card.  Also, please leave a comment to tell me what you like about my card and this International blog hop.  Also, please consider sharing my blog post with other people who might be interested in creating fun and easy projects.  You can find the list of items needed to make this card after the list of blog hopper links.  In the meantime, please hop to the next stop, Katie Johnson, on the blog hop.  I'm sure you're going to enjoy her project too.  Please leave her a comment too.

If you live in the United States and don't have a Stampin' Up demonstrator, I would love to be your demonstrator.  There is a link to the side of this post that lets you follow my posts and leave a comment to ask for a current catalog.
