Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Special Guest Dena Rekow

Thank you for joining us for another Crazy Crafters Blog hop! We have the incredible Dena Rekow hopping with our team today - we are so excited to have her as our special guest. She has so many amazing projects on her blog to be inspired by - so make sure you check her out. It was awesome to get to spend some time with Dena at Orlando last weekend.

We had a FANTASTIC time away - we arrived home in Australia today after 25 hours of travel! WOAH! I think I will sleep well tonight. I was worried when I returned home how I was going to go creating something for this hop today. But with the new products and with the help of Dena's inspiration - it was no problem at all! I whipped a card up in no time at all.

Here is the card of Dena's that I will be casing today - 

I love the simple layers and the gorgeous thinlet from the May Flowers thinlits that Dena used. I knew I wanted to do the same technique but with a new stamp set that I have just got from my Product Purchase Premier! This is a special order that demonstrators who attend Onstage get to place so that we get the NEW PRODUCTS early! Woo Hoo!! If you didn't attend onstage and you aren't a demonstrator - that is fine - you can join when the pre-order begins or even right now so that you are ready when the pre-order starts on the 5th December. So many exciting new products are coming that you are going to want to think seriously about joining.

Here is my card using the new products - 

This is a thinlits that works very well with the Precision plate the bigshot brush and also the Multipurpose adhesive sheets. Because the die is so intricate those three things are going to help you get a fantastic cut and make it easier to stick it to your project.

I used the brand new Forever Lovely Stamp set and stamped that in the Background in Powder Pink. The Butterfly Beauty Thinlits were cut in both Berry Burst and whisper White. I layered them on top of one another so that there is a little bit of the whisper white showing - this creates depth and makes those butterflies pop of the page!

The Sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala Stamp set that comes in a bundle with these gorgeous thinlits. There are some fantastic sentiments in that set that you are going to HAVE to get your hands on. If you don't join as a demonstrator... you will have to wait until January 2019! Ain't nobody got time for THAT!

I hope that you enjoyed my project today - feel free to pin it for you to use as an idea in the future.

Make sure you check out all the other amazing projects in our hop today - for LOTS of inspiration. Big thank you to Dena Fleming for being our Crazy Crafters Special guest today too and inspiring us all!
