Happy New Year and welcome to the first Inkreations blog hop for 2016. I hope you all had a wonderful festive season and spent some quality time with family and friends. Hopefully you got a chance to recharge your batteries ready for a new year – and sneak in some crafting as well.
Today we are featuring some of our favourites from the new Occasions catalogue. I say “some” because there are so many fantastic products its impossible to pick just one I like best.
For those of you arriving from LoveLifeLauren how gorgeous were those cards. I sooooo love stamp sets with coordinating punches.
So what did I choose – well I settled in the end for the Love Blossoms suite. I figured with Valentines day almost upon us it would be the perfect opportunity to create for that special someone.
I love how easily the stamp set coordinates with the patterned paper but that’s not surprising it’s one of the things I love most about Stampin’ Up! products; matchy matchy!
So first up is the card featuring the main sentiment from the set.
Now I don;t mind fussy cutting but for those of you who hate it the Bloomin’ Heart thinlit die makes cutting those small flowers ever so easy.
The blushing bride ribbon is from the Love Blossoms embellishment kit and finishes off that empty space at the base of the card perfectly.
Next up is little box just big enough for a few chocolates – if you’re anything like me you made the annual resolution to eat less chocolate this year so this will work for you.
These self closing boxes are really popular right now, you’ll find them all over Pinterest. A quick google search will bring up heaps of instructions so I won’t bore you with the details here. The cute little hear under the “it’s in the air” banner features the gorgeous new blushing bride glimmer paper. This is sure to be a favourite and should go straight on your wish list.
Thats’s it from me today. I hope you’ve found a little inspiration in these projects but don’t stop here head on over to Inkreations – I know the lovely Liv Ingle has some great projects for you.
Don’t forget you can earn yourself free Saleabration product with every $90 spent until the end of March. If you’d like your very own Occasions or Saleabration catalogue I’m happy to drop one in the post to you or alternatively you can view them online here.
