ILWS Stampin’ Up! Blog Hop….


Well Hello there!

Thank you for joining me for the New Summer Mini Catalogue Blog Hop brought to you by the Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators over on In Love With Stamping.

Hopefully you’ve come from the lovely Angela’s blog. If not don’t worry. There is a list at the bottom of everyone involved with all the blog addresses for you. So you can either start at the beginning or just carry on from here and work your way around until you get back here again.
Well here we are, new Mini catalogue time! This is the first Summer Mini the European market has had and we are all very excited about it.

As Demonstrator we do get the opportunity to purchase select items a month prior to the new catalogue release. So, for the past month, myself like many other Demo’s, have been busy beavering away building up a stock of new projects to display and share! So do you like that idea?  You do?  Well get in touch I would be happy to chat to you about joining my growing team!

So what projects do I have for you today? Well where to start?

I decided to use the gorgeous Mixed Bunch stamp set and the matching Blossom Punch

Along with these wonderful Labels Collection Framelits Dies from Sizzix and Stampin’ up! These also co-ordinate beautifully with the new Apothocary Art stamp set, which I am sure someone on this hop will have used.


So onto my creations. First up I have a couple of cards for you.

First one uses River Rock as it’s base and I have stamped the daisy looking image in Craft Whisper White ink in the bottom left of the card. The Labels framelit has been die cut from Lucky Limeade and stamped with the same image in Lucky Limeade ink.



The greeting is from For My Family stamp set and punched out using the modern label. The centre of the flower is one of our gorgeous 2011-2013 In Color Designer Printed Brads.


My next one uses Crumb Cake as it’s base and has the same daisy flower stamped again in Whisper White Craft Ink. The flower has been stamped in Pool party and punched out. The flower centre was stamped in Lucky Limeade and punched out with my 1” Circle Punch and the greeting from For My Family stamp set is used again with the modern label punch.



I hope you have enjoyed my projects today. As I said earlier I have been busy getting lots of new projects ready for you all and I will be posting these up for your enjoyment very soon.

Now you should be hopping on over to Sara where you will get to see more fabulous projects from the new Summer Mini Catalogue.

The list of everyone taking part and their blogs is listed below so if you do get lost along the way just pop back her to find the next person.

Pop back soon for more crafty ideas.

Happy Stampin’

  2. Great cards Elaine. I love the white backgrounds. A xx

  3. Lovely cards using my fav colour and I can't wait to get my hands on this stamp set when I go to Leeds x

  4. understated elegance - so classy!

  5. I'm the same as Emily, love this stamp set and it's killing me having to wait until Leeds Regional training to get it. Great cards, I especially lover the second one where the white flowers seem to pop a little more (or maybe it's just that lacy design flower stamp that gets me every time, lol).
