Big Shot Milk Carton

This is another REALLY EXCELLENT new product on
page 23 of the Occasions Mini.
I love this little milk carton!  I placed the Tombo adhesive in the shot
because it gives you a perspective on the size of this Big Shot design.  This
die, by the way, does NOT require use of the extended cutting pads!

For the milk carton on the right, I used Soft Suede card sock and
Thoroughly Modern Designer Paper (LOVE THIS DP).  The
Brushed Gold heart was cut out with a die from
the Big Shot Timeless Type Alphabet Junior (page 197).
The smaller heart is from the Heart to Heart punch on page 187.

Did you notice the little rhinestone on the heart?  That rhinestone
comes from the Eggcellent Eggs Kit on page 23 of the Occasions Mini.
This kit is NOT just for decorating eggs.  It has DP, flowers, rub-ons AND
the lovely rhinestones, making it a nice packet of products for
all kinds of projects.   PLEASE NOTE:  SU indicates that they
have a limited number of this Eggcellent Eggs kit,
so first come, first served.

I hope you are enjoying your first weekend of 2010!
Take a little time for some stampin!

New Heart Treat Cups

I just wanted to give you a heads up on this product, coming
out Jan 5th, 2010.   SU suggests that customers order early,
as backorders on the Heart Treat Cup are possible.

SU is coming out with so many cute things it's just hard to keep track!

Happy New Year!

A Happy Heart

I'm not a person who loves bunches of heart images.  I prefer a little subtlety. 
 That's why I like these images in the A Happy Heart set.

This card features the new, Sending Love Specialty paper in the
Occasions Mini Catalog (p 13).  This paper is DELICIOUS, composed of
Pretty in Pink, Real Red, and Chocolate Chip, with glitter running
through it.   It is so pleasing for use with your paper crafting projects.
Throw in a little 5/8 inch Real Red grosgrain ribbon and you have
a beautiful combination.

Have a wonderful new years eve!

Extra Large 2-Step Bird Punch

 This is another new product from the upcoming Occasions Mini.
The Extra Large Two-Step Bird punch (page 10-11) enables you to punch out
a branch, the bird and a  wing.  This format allows you to create a variety of different
combinations for your paper crafting activities.

This is one of the new style SU punches.  They lock closed
for convenient storage and have a larger platform for activation.
This format also allows for larger punches, like this bird punch.

Please be safe over the new year!

Fox & Friends Monkey

This is a second Fox and Friends (upcoming Occasions Mini) card.
Much like the previous post, it features the Tall Tales Designer
Series paper.

Both cards were very quick to make, this one with an Old Olive
card stock base.
