and waiting is not my strong suit! Yes, the wait is on for my new catalog order to arrive. Until then I just have to keep using some retired items. Of course, the more I use the retired things, the more room I’ll have for my lovely new products. A few highlights from my order: Up, Up and Away, Patterned Party, Fruit and Flowers, Berry Blossoms DSP, Well Worn DSP…. Ok, you get the point!
One of the sets that I was REALLY happy to see return from the Holiday Mini is Day of Gratitude. I had only just begun to see its potential when the Holiday Mini ended. I thought it would be really pretty with the palette from Elegant Soiree (retired). I have to say, if you were a fan of Elegant Soiree I can’t wait for you to see the Beau Chateau Suite (pp. 132 – 134)! I inked up the flower in Baja Breeze, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake. The border is punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch and I tied on some Baja Breeze Seam Binding. Basic Pearls are the final touch. I continues to amaze me how such tiny little pearls can add so much to a card! At the price point, I feel perfectly happy to use them with reckless abandon! This awesome layout is from the team over at Stamping 411. They have a new sketch every Saturday and an endless supply of tutorials and ideas. They continue to be one of my favorite sources of inspiration!
I will be back on Thursday with another ColorLab Challenge and it uses one of the new In Colors!! After that I hope to have some new things to show you. That said, I know you’ll understand that you can expect to see only two posts per week during the summer vacation. As much as I love creating, I find it harder to do when my little boys are home and there are so many wonderful things to go do. Of course, when the new box arrives even they understand that mommy “has” to stamp! *smile* I hope your summer is going well. Have a great day!
