2012 Artisan Design Team Projects for August - Part 1

Each month for the next YEAR Stampin' Up will be sending the members of the Artisan Design Team a box full of goodies to play with ... the results of which will be posted on our blogs. This month (already!!) we received a box CHOCK FULL of goodies that showcase the new In Colors (which I happen to LOVE, so this was a WIN-WIN for me!!). This is the first project I came up with ... I'm going to do my best to sway the "Summer Starfruit Naysayers" in the right direction. I actually really LIKE that color, especially when it is paired with the ever-so-fabulous Midnight Muse .. what do you think???

Stamps: Layered Labels, Itty Bitty Banners
Paper: Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals, Whisper White, Patio Party
Ink: Midnight Muse
Accessories: Apothecary Accents Framelits, Bitty Banners Framelits, Blossom Punch, Chevron Textured Impressions Folder, Dahlias, Gold Smooch Spritz, Midnight Muse Stitched Satin Ribbon

And here are my SPOILS!! This is what I got in my first monthly shipment AND what I ordered with my $500 shopping spree (which is one of the many wonderful perks I received for being chosen as a member of the Artisan Design Team). Can you say, "BETTER THAN CHRISTMAS AND MY BIRTHDAY AND MOTHER'S DAY ALL ROLLED INTO ONE???" Color me happy!! Smiley from millan.net

Wahooootie, what an awesome sight - can't wait to see what other fabulousness you dream up. Gotta warn you, tho, it's gonna take some big-time convincing to get me to like Summer Starfruit. ;-)
