Mini Catalogue Blog Hop.

Please note this is my second post today, please scroll further down for the SWU Colour Challenge :O)

Thank you for joining me - Its time to hop ... where did you start? Have you come from Helen’s blog or have you started here? I'm really excited about this event, each one of us on the hop have created some fantastic projects using items from the new mini catalogue - As long as we all have our links working, it should work; that you read all the way to the bottom of my post and I show you the link to the next blog, you follow the link and that blogger leads you to the next blog and so on, eventually you'll come back to me. There are 15 of us in this loop (there are THREE loops running today).

For those that have joined me from Helen’s blog, Welcome, I really do hope that you are enjoying your tour of all the very talented people that have posted projects and ideas using items from the Mini Catalogue, I bet you can’t wait to get your hands on it!  Contact me now for your copy  ….

Right, I created so many projects with the items I pre-ordered that I’ve had to limit myself to just four items to show you:

First, an Easel card using using the ‘My Sweet Pea’ stamp set which consists of 4 stamps which co-ordinate fantastically with the stitched felt and Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Stack (which I’m going to admit to stroking for almost a week before I could bear to cut into it LOL).


Cardstock: Pink Passion, Taken with Teal, Old Olive, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper: Sweet Pea
Stamps: My Sweet Pea
Mediums: Pink Passion, Close to Cocoa, So Saffron, Basic Black, Taken with Teal
Embellishments: 5/8" Regal Rose grosgrain ribbon, Sweet Pea Stitched Felt
ools - Paper cutter and scorer, Snail adhesive, Stamp-a-ma-jig.

Next; a notebook which is a CASE of a card made by Becky Jensen, as soon as I saw it (many months ago) I loved it, I was soooo pleased to see the stitched felt in the mini catalogue and that I could have a go at it myself :O)


Cardstock: Whisper White
Stamps: Wonderful Words
Rose Red
Embellishments: 1/4"  Always Artichoke grosgrain ribbon, Sweet Pea Stitched Felt
ools – 1/4” square punch, Paper cutter and scorer, Snail adhesive, Stamp-a-ma-jig.

Designer Series Paper: Sweet Pea
Stamps: Whimsical Words
Rose Red
Embellishments: Taffeta ribbon coloured with Taken with Teal marker pen, Sweet Pea Stitched Felt

And my last project is a gorgeous little gift tote bag, and matching purse (the template comes from Creations By A.R.)  which will be perfect for…… nope not going to tell …. LOL. I’ve filled it, all I have to do now is send it ……
