Hi there.  I hope you are all having an enjoyable weekend so far.  The weather was beautiful here in Melbourne today and even though I didn’t get outside much to enjoy it I still appreciated the warm sunshine streaming in through my windows.

Today marks the final day of the Autumn Winter mini catalogue so I thought I’d show you this little mini book I made with some ladies recently.  It features the “Clearly for You” stamp set which was my absolute favourite from this catty.  I sure hope it makes it into the new SU catalogue on 1st September.

The skeleton of book was made up of several small envelopes cut from Elegant Soiree dsp using  SU’s scalloped envelope die and my Big Shot.  I stacked them all together,  punched two holes along the left hand edge with my Cropodile and then tied them all up with some hemp twine.

To give it a more vintage feel I sponged all the edges with Soft Suede classic ink, including the little notecards inside each envelope.  These notecards would be perfect for small photos or just a message or short note.

I hope you can check back tomorrow when there will be some exciting updates with the  “Last Chance List” of retiring stamps and accessories.  Don’t forget I can also start selling the new 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalogue from tomorrow for delivery when my pre-order arrives in the next few days.  Get in early and be one of the first to see brand new products available from 1sr September 2011.  Contact me to reserve your copy.

Happy Stamping!
