Welcome to the Blog Hop.


Hello there,

Thanks for stopping by.  Today’s post is part of a large Blog Hop, so I hope you have a large cup or glass of something, and you're sitting comfortably so we can begin…

Now hopefully, if you are following the Blog Hop, you’ll have come from Erika’s blog, where I am sure you have seen truly inspiring creations.  If you have only just joined us, welcome.  I have included the full list of blog participants at the end of this post if you want to start at the beginning, plus you’ll be able to hop to next person from me toward the end of my post.

So without further ado, here is my New Catalogue Creation for you…


The basis for my card and the mini drawers was the fabulous new Patio Party Designer Series Papers.


Colour Combo - Baja Breeze, Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit, Whisper White.

I just love the striking mix of colours.  I teamed it up with the co-ordinating Make a Cake stamp set.  The greeting is from the very wonderful Itty Bitty Banners stamp set that has co-ordinating Sizzix Framelits.


The cake was stamped in our very new in-colour Midnight Muse.  Not only is the colour new, but so is the ink pad – all our inkpads will be moving over to this new, juicer ink pad with a firm foam rather than felt pad.  It allows for much better stamping, especially on the more solid images.  The little flowers were punched out using the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.  I used the Modern Label Pinch to give the embellishment an interesting shape.


The banner message is as I said before, from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set that has been cut using it’s co-ordinating Sizzix Framelits, and a couple of Basic pearls added. 

Onto the little gift drawers,


Aren’t they just so sweet?  I love them.  I was trying to think what i would put in the as a gift.  Maybe earrings? Money? Chocolate?  I am sure there are plenty of little goodies that can go in there.

The drawers are actually 3 little handmade matchboxes, stacked on top of each other and bound together using the same Patio Party DSP  and Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon that is on the card.


Well, I hope that you have enjoyed my little project today.  Please feel free to leave a comment – I love hearing what you think.
