Creation Station Blog Hop | Botanical Blooms

Hello and welcome. Thank you for stopping by! I'm so excited today to be able to share some more fantastic news. I was asked a couple of weeks ago by the ever fabulous Dena Rekow of The Creativity Cave fame to be part of the Creation Station monthly blog hops. First I was super blown away and then super excited to be a part of this super creative, international Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who can't help but to share what they love. I am so very honoured and humbled to be part of this wonderful group of crafters! This is my last design team, for now. I promise!

So with that I have my first blog hop with the Creation Station gals and I'm so excited to welcome you to my blog. If you came from Holly's blog thank you for clicking on to me.  Today's theme is spring flowers using the Botanical Blooms Bundle. It may not be spring here in Australia I can still have a play with the Botanical Blooms Bundle and create something floral like for you.

I've got three creations for you today using the Botanical Builder Framelits, a card and two gift packaging items made with the Gift Box Punch Board and the Gift Bag Punch board. Those two boards just make it so easy to create beautiful gift packaging quickly.

All creations use the same elements with the Pink Pirouette Botanical Bloom as the main focus and then accented by the Shine On DSP, Vellum, Softly Falling Embossing Folder and Silver Glimmer Paper.

I started with the Shine On DSP as a base, love that DSP, and then layered the elements from there. Make sure when sticking vellum to your card stock that you hide your adhesive under other elements so that you cant see it. On this card I've put glue dots behind the Botanical Bloom, the ribbon and used the edge of the Natural Expression element to adhere that side of the velum to the card. You can't even tell.

This bag is made with the Gift Bag Punch Board. You can easily make the flap for the top of the bag using the board too. Check out the video below for more details.

These framelits dies make it so easy to put together gorgeous and fabulous creations! Three/four die cuts and you've got a gorgeous floral bloom. 

Tip: When making gift boxes and bags out of vellum press lightly when scoring otherwise you will tear on the fold lines or they will crack when folding your boxes and bags together.

Check out the video below on how to do the flap on the Gift Bag. Too easy!

I hope that you have enjoyed my very first Creation Station Blog Hop and I'm so looking forward
