Hello friends – thank you so much for joining me today!  My name is Shannon Lane, and I’m a member of the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team.  I’m thrilled to be guest-blogging with SCT today, and so excited to share one of my favourite new stamp sets – Message In A Bottle – and some beautiful new Designer Series Paper (DSP), called Naturally Eclectic


My son was recently invited to an end-of-school pool party, and it’s been all he could talk about for a week – when I sat down to create this project, that pool party was on my mind and this sweet stamp set was a perfect fit.  How cute and easy would it be to use Message In A Bottle to create an invitation and some party decor for a summer party?


We needed an invitation to start, of course.  I cut up a piece of the gorgeous Naturally Eclectic DSP for this beautiful faux-watercolour background.  It reminds me of the sea, so a frosted glass bottle and some whales came along for the ride. 


Party favours are fun – these adorable Clear Tiny Treat Boxes from Stampin’ Up! are quickly and easily embellished to fit the theme using DSP, ribbon, and stamped images – don’t you love that little octopus?


And you know what they say – a party without cake is just a meeting!  Cupcakes are extra special with a mermaid topper.  I love that I can create mermaids of different hair and skin tones using my Stampin’ Up! Classic Stampin’ Pads and a Blender Pen.  Wouldn’t it be adorable to match the mermaids to the birthday girl, or create one to look like each of her friends?

Thank you so much for stopping by today – I hope this gives you some easy ideas for a beautiful summer get-together! Cheers!" ~ Shannon Lane
