Picture Perfect Party - Fancy Friday Blog Hop

Hello friends!  It's Thursday night, and yes, I'm finally back to Fancy Friday!  I inadvertently took the last few months off (time kept getting away from me!) and since I had some time to create last weekend, I made sure it was on my list.

This month, my Fancy Friday friends and I are showcasing the Designer Series Paper (DSP) in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue!  There are SO many wonderful papers to choose from, and I know you'll see a great selection of them as you browse through the hop.  If you're in Canada, I'd love to be your demonstrator and help you shop for them!

I chose to feature Picture Perfect Party.  This 6x6" stack includes 48 sheets in 12 double-sided prints; one side is a pattern, and the other is photo-realistic.  How cool is that?!

I was immediately drawn to these adorable cookies from the photorealistic side.  Don't they look delicious?

What a fun way to share a bit of birthday baking with someone when you can't be there in person!  :)

Further down in the stack, there's even more great patterns... I've combined a printed pattern and a photorealistic page on this card.  Don't they pair beautifully?

The confetti background is awesome, but isn't that party hat just the icing on the cake?  It's totally worth a few extra minutes to cut it out.

The really cool thing about the Picture Perfect Party DSP is that the papers that create the items - like the party hat shown here - on the photorealistic side are the same as the papers on the printed side... so they printed half the paper, photographed it, and printed the other side!  It's a whole Inception situation, isn't it?!  Mind = BLOWN.  So cool!

Let's hop over to my lovely friend Rochelle in Australia for her take on this month's theme!
