Stampin' Creative Blog Hop - On Trend

Welcome to this month's Stampin' Creative Blog Hop and whether you've hopped over from the lovely Sarah Berry or started the hop here … welcome … we've some fabulous on trend inspiration to share with you this month. 

Flamingos seem to be everywhere at the moment … on clothes, party tableware, diaries and planners, they literally are everywhere. Having recently purchased these fun glasses for my launch party, I couldn't not pull the Pop of Paradise Stamp Set from my shelf to design with. The images really do scream summer and paradise and since it was pouring with rain when I designed this little ensemble, it helped to cheer up the craft desk, even if only for a morning. 

Gold, Bright Pink and Black seem to be popular striking colours to couple together and these gorgeous little Gold Binder Clips, super trendy to use in your Planners or as I've used here, on a little Gift Bag.

The paper I used to create the gift bag was from the Pop of Pink Speciality Designer Series Paper pack. There are a couple of Gold Foil sheets within it that are just stunning! These little gift bags made from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits are so easy to make and with the depth achieved by making a gusset to them, so useable. 

I've used the Gold Wink of Stella to add a little splattering behind the Flamingo and added a couple of single gold sequins to give an extra lift.

Open the card and the flamingo shows another appearance.
