Hello and thank you for joining me today. I am very excited to share something special with you that was featured in an earlier blog post this week.
My Inspirational Craft Room Sampler.
I made this beautiful framed piece with multiple stamp sets, embellishments, paper, and more and chose each square carefully as I really wanted it to represent something special to me in life and in business.
While most products used are current Stampin' Up! products, I did use a few retired colours and product as well. I share full details and measurements below, but I first wanted to cover off why this piece in particular is important to me.
I started Sweet Paper Studios in 2016 after joining Stampin' Up! in 2015. I had no idea where this journey would lead me, but I soon found out the it would truly turn into my passion, allowing me to meet some incredible people, and really share my love of snail mail and paper crafts with the world.
I am truly grateful for everything this business has brought me and I inspire to take it even further in terms of growth and skill. Each square on this sampler represents something meaningful so even though this took me 3 - 4 months to complete, I wanted it to be very intentional with it's meaning so I could look at it everyday as a reminder that there is a higher purpose with this business, that life is good and must be celebrated, and to always follow my goals and dreams.
Live with Passion - Laugh out Loud - Love Deeply
These are words to truly live by, aren't they?
Plus, it's also pretty beautiful. ;)
