I had 9 lovely ladies in my house yesterday to welcome in the new catalogue, and what a lovely afternoon we had.
Here are some of the samples I had on display from my favourite new sets..
These cards use the new photopolymer sets Dotty Angles and Age Awareness. The cupcake and the greeting on th pink card come from a great set called Peace, Love and Cupcakes.
Perfect Peacock is a single stamp, available only in wood mount for $22.95 and I LOVE it!! It is shown here left to right, gold embossed, white embossed, white washed and coloured with blender pens, gold embossed and coloured with blender pens and finally stamped in Memento ink and coloured with our NEW Blendabilities, which are alcohol based markers.
Another favourite set is World of Dreams, love those silhouettes!!
My favourite Bigshot Accessory is the Little Letters Framelits, too cute and very versatile. Shown backed with DSP from the All Abloom Stack, available for just $11.95
My final favoutire set is another photopolymer set, which comes with matching framelits is Flower Patch.
Lots of love and lots of favourites, but that sums up the new catty for me!!

Friday 7th of March at 7pm Kids Cards
Sun 16th of March at 12 noon A grand Prix of Flowers and Watercolouring!! Not a car in sight!
I love this stamp! I borrowed it from a fellow demonstrator on a stamping day we had, and I loved it so much I have ordered my own. It's actually called Blessed Easter, and comes with an Easter greeting, but what this demo did was to cut off the greeing before she mounted it on the wood block, to make it easier to use for numerous occasions. I think Ill do that too.
After I had made a few flowers with the Spiral Flower Die, (shown in the previous post) it occured to me that there was something else I could use it for.
Here is the outside of the card...
and inside..it's a spiral with butterflies flitting along it. It was very hard to photograph, I hope you can see what it looks like. I fastened the outside end to the inside face of the card and the center of the spiral was fastened to the inside of the front of the card. The butterflies were punched using the Elegant and small butterfly punches.
Another set that I think is going to be very popular in the Occasions Catalogue is Cool Kids. The dog with a cape was shown previously, this card features the cat. Teamed with Woo Hoo from the Just Sayin set, I'm very pleased with how this card turned out. The colours are Real Red and Primrose Petals, the DSP is from the stack in the Occasions Catalogue.
Still more to come, back soon,
