Sneak Peek Week! - Day 4

Fun, flirty, feminine - those are the words that come to mind when I look at this card. When I was starting it, there was no clear direction in my head of where it was going but I'm happy with the outcome.

So this card uses the new stamp set Create a Cupcake and the matching Build A Cupcake punch. YES! Cupcake punch. No more cutting out cute little cupcakes...hallelujah! I kept it simple but with fabulous little touches to punch it up. The polka dot embossing, tiny flower and pearl on the cupcake wrapper and the border punch all around the focal image all work together to dress it up.

Are you enjoying the little peeks so far? I have one more to show you tomorrow. Then my projects will be tackling the rather large undertaking of scrapbooking my New York photos. I'm actually really exciting about the prospect of finishing an album....the 'prospect' of it being the key word here! It's been ages since I posted any scrapbook pages though, so I want to show you what I'm working on.

Sneak Peek Week! - Day 3

Let's fast forward a little bit because I just want to show you these adorable little love notes made with only paper and rub ons, no stamping!

The Love Impressions specialty designer series paper is rocking my world right now! It reminds me of the hoodies and pants from the Aeropostale store. Very cool! I paired it with the matching rub ons to create these little 3x3 cards perfect for tucking into lunchboxes for your kids, jacket pockets for your significant other, or little gifts for friends.

I realize that Valentine's Day is still far away but they were too cute to keep tucked away that long! ;)

Lovin' the envelope? I cut a piece of the DSP to fit in the flap to make it coordinate with the card...fabulous!

Sneak Peek Week! - Day 2

I'm very excited about the card today. Nature Walk is probably one of my favourite new sets and it's so strange because it's completely not the kind of set I would normally choose. But different can be great!

The bird and flower are stamped on a piece of the designer series paper from the coordinating Botanical Gazette package, and the torn edge at the bottom is also from the same pack. This card is all about the details, from the French Script stamped onto the base (difficult to see in the picture), to the ribbon and paper tearing, and finally the button and sentiment stamped banner with pearls.

Okay, so let me stop for a second and say how much I love a new tool that I got, the colour spritzer. You must have this! Why I waited so long is a mystery, this is the coolest thing ever! I spritzed early espresso onto the image layer and it was THE perftect touch. Get ready to see a lot of cards that have been spritzed! ;)

Sneak Peek Week! - Day 1

Here we go! Get comfortable because you are in for a very special treat....little peeks of what is coming at ya in the new mini catalogue!

I didn't even know where to begin when selecting my stamp set for the first card, so I decided to use new paper and accessories instead. For those of you who know me, you konw I love me some accessories! And there is NO shortage in this still my heart! ;)

Without further ado let me present card #1:

This card features the new Springtime Vintage designer series paper. I loooove this paper! It says old Victorian home wallpaper and is so fabulous. Also, I've used the seam binding that we were introduced to in the Holiday Mini which has returned in even more new colours....woohoo! See those adorable little flowers? Love, love, love! They are so easy to stick on with glue dots and make the project just too cute!

The layout for this card is actually my take on today's Mojo Monday sketch which I've included for you here.

Getting excited? ME TOO!! Tomorrow will feature a new stamp set and even more gorgeous new paper.
