IN LOVE WITH STAMPING - BLOG HOP

Hi and welcome to our ILWS Stampin' Up! blog hop.


As Stampin' Up! Demonstrators, we get the opportunity to pre-order products from new catalogues, a month before the general release date. As such, several demonstrators on ILWS have got together to showcase the products they have earned for FREE from recent Stampin' Up! promotions or purchased themselves from the NEW Spring 2012 Mini catalogue that you will be able to order from today.


Do you love to be among the first to receive information or fancy the opportunity to earn even more FREE products ? Then why not ask me about becoming a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and you could be joining us here next time. Just click on the 'contact me' button at the top of the screen to get in touch.


Now grab that cuppa, sit back and enjoy your hop. You may have just joined me from Emma's blog http://www.emma-daye.blogspot.com, she makes such wonderful projects.


One of my favourite things about Stampin' Up! is the co-ordination of stamps and punches together. Either can be used on it's own but teamed up together they are just great. Today I'm featuring two sets in the NEW Mini that do just that.




My first card to showcase is the Build a Cupcake stamp set with matching punch. I had been hoping this set would make in into the European catalogue last October but sadly not. I was so pleased it finally made it for the Mini. Isn't that cherry just so cute. This card also uses the new 2-3/8" Scallop Circle punch, it's quite a bit bigger than the existing one and is great for layering the two together for flowers. Like to have a go making some easy but realistic looking flowers, then get in touch to book your space on my next all-day Stampin' Up! class.


Next is the Perfect Postage stamp set with matching punch. An earlier post back in October, featured this small gift box so I have decided these small images would fit perfectly on these small notelets. I just love this years In-Colour Lucky Limeade and matching scallop edged ribbon.
I hope you've enjoyed the creations I've shared with you today and thank you for stopping by.


Now please continue enjoying your 'hop' round and pop over to Caroline's blog http://www.stampaholix.blogspot.com blog for some more lovely creations.

Happy Craftin' till next time.
