Broadway Bound Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Greetings from San Jose California and welcome to July's Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop.  Did you just see Connie's retro inspired cards?  I think they are super cool.  I am glad you are here to see what I have designed for this month's hop.
This month it's all about the super fabulous Broadway Birthday Suite.  The stamps, framelits, specialty designer series papers, and embellishments are a great combination of perfectly coordinating products perfect for your stash of supplies.  The great thing about birthday products is you can never have enough! There are always birthdays to be celebrate.

For this hop I put together some birthday banner decor that doubles as packaging.  That's right the fun of these banner garlands is that you can fill them with tiny treats, gift cards, and money before you hang and decorate for a birthday celebration.
My "happy" banner is constructed on the new Kraft Pillow Boxes and the "wishes" is made with the Mini Pizza Boxes.  I love the use of the boxes as it gives visual weight and presence to the overall look.  The 1/2" Black Satin Ribbon is the perfect compliment to string the boxes all together.
Each of the Mini Pizza Boxes include a couple layers of cardstock, a layer of Broadway Birthday Specialty DSP,  circles cut from the Layering Circles Framelits, and Gold Glimmer letters cut from the Large Letters Framelits.  To make each box extra special I added all kinds of Broadway Birthday stamped images, Metallic Pearls, and Adhesive Backed Sequins.
Since I decided to not close the top of the Kraft Pillow Boxes, I used the Circle Tab Punch to have "loops" for the ribbon.  The ribbon is secured in each tab with Solid Black Bakers Twine and Silver Mini Sequins Trim.  I have to say I do like the look of the solid and pattern papers with both silver foil and gold glimmer.  It just adds that certain umph and pow.
I am glad you have joined us for our Broadway Birthday Hop.  Emma Goddard is your next stop along the hop and she has something super amazing to share with you.  Enjoy!
