Welcome to the Mini Blog Hop!


Hello Everybody! Let's go to the hop......!
 
Many thanks for stopping by and joining in our Stampin' Up! Blog Hop to launch the new Mini Catalogue!  There are 16 of us in this blog hop loop. So once you've seen a blog twice, you've done the full tour!

The catalogue goes live on 1 April and will run concurrently with the main catalogue until 30 September. 

Thank you to my lovely predecessor, Melanie for her gorgeous designs. If you've just started the blog hop at my blog, then welcome and thank you for joining in! Grab yourself a cup of tea and sit back and enjoy! Now, on with the crafty stuff!


I chose to showcase the beautiful Day and Night Designer Series Papers.  The papers are only going to be available until the end of September, so if you like them, grab them while you can! In the pack there are 10 sheets of double sided paper and two sheets of polka dot acetate to play with.

For the above layout I teamed them with Pale Plum cardstock, twine and the beautiful new Old Olive satin ribbon.  Which is beautiful and sumptious and a dream to work with! I finished off my layout by making the title using Happy Everything stamp set.


Next up we have this set that I made of an easel card, small peek-a-boo treat box and box in a bag.  I wanted to show how, as well as being quite classical and gothic in style, the papers can also be give a modern and ditzy look, by using the polka dots included in the papers.  The cardstock and ink used is Real Red, the stamp set is Simply Said and the punches used are the Large Heart, Large Oval and Scalloped Oval.  The various ribbons used are red and black gingham checks and Whisper White tafetta.


This next item is my favourite piece I have created.  I based my design on a lovely little set of drawers by Qbee which she calls Darling Drawers.  They're a lovely little size for holding bits and pieces.  As you can see from mine, I have used them to hold my gorgeous new Real Red satin ribbon and my crocheted white flowers. 


The main body of the drawers is made from a 12x12 sheet of Whisper White cardstock which I stamped using the new Very Vintage Jumbo wheel in Basic Black.  The drawers are made using the Day & Night papers and the little handles are made using Filigree brads coupled with rhinestone brads for a bit of bling.

I may do a class on these gorgeous little drawers in the near future. We'll see what sort of reaction they get!

Well, I hope you enjoyed stopping by to see my Mini Catalogue offerings.  Please feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions about anything here or you would like to purchase any of the items I've showcased.

I will now hand you over to the supremely talented and lovely to boot Dawn Silver.  You're sure to be in for a treat on her blog!

Many thanks for visiting.  Please pop by again soon! :O)
