Happy New Year with Cheery Lynn Designs

I want to wish you all a very happy, healthy and properous New Year.  I hope 2018 is memorable for you in many good ways!   I'm sad to say that this is my farewell post for Cheery Lynn Designs.  It has been a wonderful 13 months designing for them and I am so appreciative of the opportunity given me.  Thank you so much everyone at Cheery Lynn Designs.  I love their dies, they are so imaginative and fun to work with.  However, it is time to let someone else enjoy the privilege of being on Cheery Lynn's design team.

 Now let's look forward to the New Year celebrations.  To to kick off the holiday, I've turned an ordinary bottle of champagne into  a fun hostess gift by adding this shaker bottle hanger.  I used the New Year 2017 Shaker Die Set to make the shaker.  The die has 2017 as part of it's design so I just simply cut that off and glued the included sentiment, Happy New Years, to the acetate on the front of the shaker.

I used a large cut from the Coved Rectangle Stitch And Cut Tool set and placed behind the bottle hanger, using the bottle hanger as the 2nd layer.  On top of that I used a black starred layer cut with the A2 Frames Rectangular Scalloped set.  Next is the floral design paper cut with the Pierced Stacker 2 set.   All the papers I used are from Graphic 45's Vintage Hollywood collection and the dancing couple is fussy cut from one of the design papers.

The flowers are handmade using a mix of layered cuts from the Judy's Blooms Die,  Sweet Williams Die,  Indie Bouquet , and Floral Bouquet Kit 8 Piece Die Sets.

 To top the hanger and give a real festive look, I added two pretty bows and a floral center.

One thing I really love is a pretty swirly flourish and here I've used Flourish #7 Die.
