It's here

The new annual catalogue goes live today and it is over 200 pages of gorgeousness..So to help a little,  a group of demonstrators decided to get together and do a blog hop featuring projects made using some of the fabulous new products.

If you are already on the hop then you should have come from Vronnie's blog . If you landed here without hopping, you may want to go to the very start which is Laura's blog and hop all the way along. 

Elements of Style stamp set using some of the new in-colours
 As demonstrators we are lucky enough to get advance copies of the catalogue and my wishlist is huge and grows every time  I look through the book...which is often!  There are just so many fabulous goodies inside.

There is just so much that I love and it was hard to know  which ones to feature.  Elements of Style is a real favourite of mine and so seems a natural place to begin. For these samples I have used some of the gorgeous new in-colours.

Patterned Party Stamp Set

                                                                                        Another new favourite is Patterned Party with banners, balloons, pretty packages and cake it is a super set and perfect for direct to stamp inking with markers. It will be an absolute winner when it comes to making party invitations

Although I am primarily a card maker I thought it might be fun to include a scrap page  to fit the new 8x8 scrapbooks.
For this I used primrose petals and gumball green card from the new in-colours, layered two kinds of the new scallop edge tulle and topped with designer paper, stickers and borders form the Merry Moments simply scrapping kit. The image I used instead of a photo was stamped with the new Kindness Matters stamp set.
Christmas Tree 

                                                                                    And since it is now October it doesn't seem right to leave out Christmas altogether... The Tree card on the left is made from whisper white card embossed using the big shot  and card  and strips torn and layered at the base and covered with dazzling details. The tree itself was made from designer papers diagonally cut from the Merry Moments simply scrappin' kit.

And the little tree shaped cards below are made using the new perfect pennants die and covered back and front with strips of the festival of prints designer series paper stack which is a handy size for card making or matting on scrap pages.

Finally to end, this is one of a set of quick and easy cards made using note cards and envelopes set with the festival of prints DSP  and Snow Festival Designer printed tags and Owl Occasions stamp set and some dazzling details to finish.

Well that's it from me for now. There will be more of my favourites in the coming days but now it is time to say goodbye as you hop on over to see what delights Ruth has in store for you will find Ruth's blog  here
