New product blog hop...

Welcome!



I hope you enjoyed the fabulous work of the wonderful Kim's blog.

Well, I have a few little samples lined up for you. First up is a mini album. This is a simple 4x6 mini album with 4 pages, plus a scrumptious cover using the Cottage Wall Printed transparent overlays. All I did was cut a 12x12 sheet of the transparent overlay into 3 strips, each 4x12, then scored and folded in half. The pages are one sheet of the A4 Razzleberry (new fav colour!) cut lengthwise into a 4" wide strip and then folded in half.



I used the crop-a-dial to punch two holes through everything, and threaded some of the spotty razzleberry ribbon through them and tied a little bow.

Finished off the mini album with some of the Cottage Wall DSP (new fav paper) and some photo mats for wallets and trimmed down 4x6 photos. Now all I need to do is add the photos - once those arrive from the printers!


This next project was done as I needed to create a luggage tag for my trip to Canada. Needed to be unique, so hand made fit the bill perfectly! And, what better excuse to play with new goodies then an "I HAVE to make this - I need to - honest!!!"



Very cute and simple. The base is some of the cottage wall DSP, and I stamped the greeting from Live your Dream across the top in Razzleberry ink. The circular tag in the centre is made by folding a strip of DSP in half, then punching it out, but leaving a gap at the top when you punch so when you open your punched shape, it opens like a card, with the two sides still attached at the spine. I stamped on the front of the punched circle again in razzleberry using the live your dream set. The inside I punched two smaller circles out of some plain sticky lable paper (you know - the ones you use for mailing lables) and wrote my contact details on there - Canada on one side, the UK on the other!

And, if you have stuck with me this long, here is the last project.

A nice and simple 6x6 card done with Kraft cardstock as the base, and stamped with white craft ink and soft suede ink using the little flower from the one of a kind stamp set. I then took a strip of melon mambo CS and punched one edge with the spiral punch, and then stamped the row of little flowers in white craft along the top, and tied a ribbon around it.



The large flower is stamped in soft suede onto Kraft cardstock, and then the centre is stamped in suede onto some melon mambo, then cut out and mounted ontop. The greeting is simply stamped and cut by hand. A very quick and easy card, but I do love the tone on tone of the Kraft and Suede colours, and adding some melon mambo to really make it pop. A little goes a long way with this colour!

I hope you are enjoying the blog hop - Sarah is up next!
