Anything Goes Journey Blog Hop

Welcome to our Fun Stampers Journey "May Flowers & Growth" Blog Hop! I'm so happy you're hoppin' along! If you arrived here from Kim's blog, you're on the right track. If not, that's ok too! Just continue the hop and you'll come full circle!

I'm just home for our 2nd Annual FSJ Convention in Scottsdale, AZ but I had to prep for this hop just before I left.  I want to show you something I made for the 4th of July which is right around the corner.

Last year at convention I purchased the Large Sparkle Locket from the Journey Girl collection and the 27.5" chain and Large Locket Kit (gotta have!).    I traced the size of the locket from one of the "windows" of the kit on Whip Cream card stock.  I die cut Candy Apple and Denim Days card stock with the star border from the Border Details die set (in the new catalog!).  The stamped star was made by die cutting the new Cascading Stars Die (you gotta wait until July to see this!) with Whip Cream card stock then fussy cutting a star the size I needed to stamp the word from the Tag Elements in Candy Apple ink.

I sponged a bit of Denim Days ink on the edges of the star, added some Journey Glaze and Sparkle Dust for bling.  The celebrate star is not adhered down as I went for more of a shaker style so I added a few bits of Candy Apple Confetti Sparkle Elements.

This fun Bloom Catcher (JW-0043) is one of the new products added to the Journey Girl jewelry line.  This little baby is only1 1/4" high (top of cap not including ring) and just over 1/2" diameter so it is fairly small.  It comes empty so you can fill it with what you want.  I purchased a jar of Slice-fetti (AC-0222), a cool confetti of all kinds of summer fruits.  It sells for $15.95.

This jar sells for $8.95 and is .5 ounce.  Both these items are in the new catalog and will be available for ordering July 1.  I will share the link to the new online catalog then.
