In Love With Stamping Mini Catalogue Blog Hop

Welcome to the In Love With StampingMINI BLOG HOP.  If you are starrting here, or have popped over from the lovely Theresa who I am sure you will agree showed you some fabulous creations, pull up a chair and grab a cup of coffee/tea and get settled, as we have some amazing projects to show you, showcasing the stunning new products in the Mini Catalogue which launched yesterday!

It is so exciting to bring you our biggest Mini catalogue to date, we have 10 extra pages and they are filled with lush products.......a big delight to us all was that we now have the Big Shot and dies and embossing folders to go with it - 17 of them are exclusive to Stampin' Up!

If you haven't seen the Big Shot before or would just like to know more about it and how to get the best from it contact me 
and I will be happy to show you at a workshop and you can have a hands on try!

Here are a few projects I have made using some of the new goodies :-

Build a blossom stamp set, springtime vintage buttons, occasional greeting sentiment, melon mambo ink, basic gems, matt pack and night of Navy cardstock

 Flower burst embosslits, square lattice embossing folder, basic pearls, whisper white taffetta ribbon, old olive, perfect plum and bashful blue cardstock

very vanilla, pumpkin pie and old olive card stock, eyelet border punch, crimper, basic pearl, tea stain ink from distressing kit, old olive ribbon and the very versatile perfect polka dots embossing folder
Pillow Box die, the first one is cut in Melon mambo cardstock, sentiment from Basic Phrases, certainly celery ribbon and the topper is made with certainly celery, basic black and melon mambo cardstock, basic gem and heart punched from the 3 heart punch( for any demo who went to convention last year,and went to Monica and Natalies pre convention party, you might recognise the little topper, I saved it from the triangle box that Nat and Monica gave us!!)  Recycle, recylcle recycle! 

The second  pillow box cardstock is cut in Pumkin pie and stamped over in matching punkin pie ink with the itty bitty stamp set(as a demo we get little perks and this set was given to us free at this years regional training! woo hoo! -  contact me if you are interested in becoming a demo) Butterflies are cut and embossed from our brand new beautidul wings embosslits, cuts and embosses at the same time - simply fab to use and tied with daffodil delight satin ribbon.

These lovely felt flowers are made with our new fun flowers sizzix bigz l die cutter, the die can cut through felt, chipboard, cork, to name but a few mediums, not just paper and card, so i decided to make some brooches to show it off, I have used felt from my stash and the buttons are the springtime vintage set and the bold brights buttons which I used for the first  two brooches.  The third brooch I made to go on my Stampin' Up! apron and as the postie brought me my new bronze level 3 pin yesterday, I decided to use it as the centre for this brooch - will be able to use it as a recruiting statement tool!!!

This is my last set of projects for todays hop - The springtime vintage papers are just beautiful and as they are double sided, you can always find something to suit your taste. I have used very vanilla and old olive card stock for all 3 items, the seam binding ribbon is just pure lush! it ties beautifully, ruches easily and can be frayed simply.......and it comes in 3 other colours too!  the square box is made by attaching 4 of our new envelope dies together, how simple, but so effective, the mini milk carton is cut from another of our new sizzix dies, aptly named the mini milk carton!  I have used our scallop circle punch to create the flower on the card, and the crimper to make the leaves, the sentiment is from the thanks for everything stamp set and punched with the decorative label punch - another new product!
I hope you have enjoyed my projects and that they give you a taste of what additional products I can offer you, next on this fabulous blog hop is Donna who has some more delicious projects to show you.
