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.
