OSAT Don't Go Breaking My Heart Blog

Welcome to my blog and the OSAT Don't Go Breaking My Heart blog hop!  I must admit that I haven't really been in my stamp room in the last couple of weeks so this hop helped me to do just that. I've been struggling with a Baker's cyst behind my knee and for a week I was actually in a brace and was on the couch for one week and then it's been an on and off thing with it.  I'm seeking a second opinion with a ortho surgeon before I have physical therapy.  Anyway it's all been very discouraging since my stamp room is in my basement and I haven't been able to navigate the stairs too well.  I was happy to get back to the stamps, ink and paper and it was my first chance at using some new product from the Occasions catalog.  I didn't realize how nice this Painted with Love Specialty DSP was.  The hardest part about using it was which piece to choose first.  I love the gold accents on this DSP and the heavier weight.
On both my projects I chose to use the Sure Do Love You bundle on page 19 of the Occasions catalog.  On the card I wanted to add some texture so I ran the hearts I cut with the framelits through a couple of different embossing folders.  I also used the Simple Stripes embossing folder for the the base of the card.  To finish it off I used the Love mini tinsel trim.  I can tell you that I am in love with this stuff.  I'm already on my second rolls of this shiny trim.  As a side note I already had a Powder Pink heart that was cut out and I decided I wanted to stamp the words so I pulled out my new handy dandy Stamperatus tool.  Yes, I was one of the fortunate ones to have been part of the demonstrator team that brought this tool to market so I was able to purchase and receive mine early.  Believe me you are going to love it when you can order and get your hands on one.  It will be available in the next catalog.  I stamped the words perfectly on that heart.  No more wasting time and paper trying to get that perfect placement that some stamps can require.

I made this cute candy box using the Lots of Love Box Framelits.  It was super simple to make and I cute the cardstock and DSP all in one fell swoop so my hearts lined up.  I covered the inside of the heart with acetate so that the candy stays in.  Wouldn't this be a cute way of giving a treat to a friend, family member or even a co-worker?  I will list all the products I used at the bottom of this post for you.




Please be sure to take the rest of the hop by clicking on the person's name after mine in the blog roll below.  I know there are going to be some amazing projects.

Blessings,
Renee

Sale A Brate The Occasions OSAT Blog Hop

Hi my friends!  I'm so happy to be back blog hopping with the OSAT bloggers.  We took the month of December off, which I'm sure all the bloggers needed for their sanity.  December is always such a busy month for everyone and I for one was glad for one less thing to do last month, but I'm excited to be blogging again.  So lets get started!!!
This month's hop is all about the Stampin'Up! Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs.  I will admit I struggled a bit at first because I didn't pre-order a lot from the Occasions catalog.  Not that I didn't want to, but ordering right before Christmas my funds weren't overflowing, which was probably a good thing.  I don't need everything in the catalog, although sometimes I think I do.  LOL!  I chose my favorite set from the Occasions catalog..........Hedgehugs of course and I combined it with the Barn Door set. First I'll show you the card and then there's a little video that I did to show you how it works.






Isn't this such a neat bundle?  I stamped the door on the wood pattern DSP and then cut the door and the rest of the pieces with the matching framelits.  The hedgies were fussy cut with my Paper Snip scissors. 

While I try to do coordinating projects for the hops, this time I wanted to also use something from the SAB catalog so I used the new Celebrate You thinlits that you can earn if you place a $100 order during SAB.  I happened to have this frame in a basket on my counter in my stamp room that I was going to do something with.  Do you have a basket, box, tub of those type projects?  Seems I always have some of those full of great things to turn into a project.



I had to use the Sweet Soiree DSP from the Occasions catalog because well, it's just plain beautiful!!!  This DSP has beautiful metallic accents added to it.  You know it's all about the sparkle so I then added a sweet bow using the Love Mini Tinsel Trim.  I'm thinking more of this needs to be on my next order.

Well I hope you've enjoyed my projects and that you will keep hopping by hitting the next button and go to the amazing Jeanna Kay's blog.  I'm sure she has projects to inspire you.
