Faux Vintage Book Page Wreath: Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Stampin' up! Artisan Blog Hop!  I can't even begin to tell you how much fun I'm having being a part of this fabulous team of ladies.  Did you know we are representing Stampin' Up! all over the world?!  Cool eh?  Make sure you have Google translator so you can enjoy all the stops on the hop, regardless of what language they're in.  

In our August box of Artisan goodies we received the Typeset Designer Series Paper and then I got this idea...
I've wanted to make a vintage book page wreath for a long time, but I had two obstacles.  1. I couldn't find many vintage books with nice yellowy vanilla pages, and 2. the books I did find were EXPENSIVE.  So enter the beautiful, and vintagey Typeset DSP.  It's perfect!

So of course I couldn't make a faux vintage wreath without adding some beautiful gold accents.  The stamped and embossed stars are from the Bright & Beautiful stamp set (which will be released on August 28, 2014), and I also added some Gold Foil Paper stars, and Gold Sequin Trim.  
 

Don't you think this bow creates a lovely pop of colour?  The Cherry Cobbler 1" Sheer Cotton Ribbon will also become available on August 28th.  
I'm happy to announce that attendees to my annual paper crafting retreat in Banff, Alberta will have the chance to make their own stunning wreath this October!   All details of the retreat will be released on my blog this Friday, August 22nd.

Now go check out what the fabulous Barbara has made for the blog hop!  

See you tomorrow friends!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Stampin'
