Well, today we had a triple whammy kind of a day! We had 3 different catalogue's all available on the same day. I can't remember that happening, well ever. But it was a great opportunity to get any retiring items from the Stampin' Up! 2014-2015 Annual Catalogue, the 2015 Occasions Catalogue and the new 2015-2016 Annual Catalogue! I'm excited that the new catalogue is finally available for everyone - it sure it chocked full of some ultra-fabulous new products! Now I just have to wait for my UPS guy to deliver my new toys. I have some projects made with some of my favourite "retiring" items. First some Project Life...
I decided to make my own layout, using 12" X 12" card stock and the Happiness is card collection. I love the fun, bold and bright colours and funky patterns. I still have to put my photos in it, but you can see how easy it is to make a fun layout. I LOVE the cork letters from the accessory pack - so fun!
The cards included have some fun sayings - this one was my favourite "things that make me smile". I chose my favourite patterns - it was difficult, but these ones just spoke to me!
The new Project Life card collections and accessory packs are super awesome just like the ones retiring. The work great for the traditional scrapbooker, the ease of the quick scrapbooker with the Project Life cards and accessories or make cards. Keep scrolling down, I've got a couple fun cards using the A Happy Hooray stamp set.
Hi there! A Happy Hooray & Thanks
My favourite stamp set is leaving on only a few more hours... sniff, sniff. I'm a sucker for stamp sets with feathers and it has a hexagon so it was a no-brainer for me with this one! Check them out...
I decided to play with my #1 stamp set and that super fun feather image. I used the In-Colours that are retiring - Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush, Baked Brown Sugar and Pistachio Pudding. Love all of these colours, don't you?!
I stamped the entire background with the feather in all 5 of the In-colours (2013-2015). I love the look of the overlapping stamping. I added a strip of Basic Black, stamped the "hi there" three times and punched them out with Mr. Hexagon punch, added some Thick Baker's Twine in Coastal Cabana and Crisp Cantaloupe. The next card, I stamped the feather in a slightly different pattern - but with the same concept. This time I made a "thanks" card, also from the same stamp set.
Here's a close up of the overlapped stamping - cool eh?!
Here's a view of both of them side by side. Similar idea, but a different look!
The NEW Catalogue is here... Love the title "Share the Fun"!
