You're Awesome | Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Here's the thing.
"You're Awesome"

It's almost like we don't allow ourselves to believe those words.
But I can assure you that all 16 of these Stampin' Up! Artisans from around the world are most certainly awesome. It is my hope that they have already allowed these words to sink in when they truly realized that they would be representing Stampin' Up! in 2018.
Because guess what?
You're Awesome.
and congrats.

Today marks the first blog hop for this year's team.
We are all so excited to show you our style and projects over the next year.
Thank you so much for the love, support and taking the time out of your day to say hello.


Today's project was created using the Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration item called Epic Celebrations. The sneakers were coloured using the Stampin' Blends alcohol marker: Cherry Cobbler + Smoky Slate. But I know what you are really thinking... where did those stars come from? It's a hidden gem in the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets. They are the perfect size and ever so awesome!

Hope you enjoyed this fun little project!
