Hello all!!  Welcome to my first ever blog hop participation!  For those of you that have joined us here, hope you enjoy the show, for those of you who have hopped in from Narelle Fasulo‘s blog, isn’t she amazing? Love that there are so many talented SU! Demos in the South Pacific region.

As you can see from the title, we are saying goodbye to some of our present catalogue to make way for the gorgeous new stuff that is just waiting to seen!  And it is just beautiful. I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak in Amsterdam a couple of weeks ago.


In my little project today I’m preparing to say goodbye to all things butterfly.  Yep, not only are we waving farewell to both our butterfly punches, but the stamp sets that have gone with them.  I am rather sad to be loosing these, because, let’s admit it, who hasn’t used their Bitty Butterfly punch to hide a mistake on a card??  It’s funny how random butterflies just pop up over the place.  I’m also showcasing 4 of the retiring In-Colors, Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, Mint Macaron and Delightful Dijon.

I’ve made a home decor item using the two butterfly punches, Papillon Potpourii, and Kinda Eclectic. It’s a cute piece that I have now placed on my dining table.  Although my husband says they look like they are pooping silver streams, my son thinks they are cute, so his vote wins!

I have used picture frame wire (separated the strands), and my hot glue gun to assemble these little cuties and then decorated the jar holding them with some of the retiring paper stack, ribbon and sequins. Yes, the big sequins are going, but there are tiny cute ones coming in to replace them!! Shiny!

Bye bye, butterflies! Sob!!

Hope you enjoy this project, any questions please ask.

Now it is time to hop along to the next talented Demo, Nicole Wilson!
