Mini Blog Hop Time!!!




Welcome welcome!!!

I hope you have had a wonderful hop so far, and have been super inspired by what you have seen! Was Hayley's project not just amazing?!?!

I have to admit, I had a hard time deciding what to show you from all the wonderful little goodies I have made with some of the exciting stuff from the new mini.

In the end, I kept adding photo after photo.......



................ so enjoy!!!


Above: a wonderful 12x12 scrapbook layout done with pale plum and going grey textured cardstock, and perfect plum striped DSP. I used the very vintage wheel and basic black in to put its lovely distressed pattern ontop of the stripes. Stamped the dreamy large flower from Vintage Vogue in Perfect Plum and Pale Plum inks onto whisper white CS and cut out. Finished with some moss taffeta ribbon, some silk flowers that I dyed with Perfect Plum re-inker, and some clear rhinestone brads to add that all important bling!


After the Vintage Vogue stamp set, I firmly believe that the heavenly Night & Day DSP is my number 2 pick from our new mini! It is a must! Here, I have layered it behind the Fresh Cuts die cut note card. Makes for super simple and elegant thank-you cards.



And number 3 on my must have list from the new mini is the Sweet Pea Stitched Felt! I have used it here to brighten up an altered mini note book from SU along with one of our rub-ons. This stitched felt is so wonderful, you dont even need to stamp!


Finally, what would a blog hop be without some chocolate???? Here are some pink and red chocolate candy hearts in one of the wonderful new Sweet Treat cups!! Talk about the ultimate way to make one of a kind party favours with these! Here, I have place it in the centre of one of our scalloped circle cards, and embellished the front with the Vintage Vogue stamp set (I think my new go to set!) and some lovely flat back pearls from the pretties kit.

Overall, this new mini has something for everyone, no matter your taste, style, or the occasion. So, if you have seen something you like, contact me to place your order!


And now off to Michelles blog for some more wonderful ideas that are sure to inspire :)
