We all get so excited when we see the new products in the catalog but one of things that I get really excited about is the beautiful artwork in the catalog. I love thumbing through it to find projects that I want to re-create. I was having a hard time coming up with a card to make Brandon for his birthday. I do not have many "boy" sets on hand so I was really racking my brain. I went to the new catalog and found a card that I thought would be boyish enough and use a few new products too- SCORE.
I used the Forever Young stamp set. Honestly, this stamp set hasn't seen a lot of ink and after making this card I'm sad it's been neglected. For this card I used a few new In Colors such as Midnight Muse and Summer Starfruit. I love that the First Edition DSP is sticking around. I could kiss the person that made that decision. I love that paper and use it on just about everything. The little button at the top of the frame is from our New Naturals Designer Buttons. Love that they are neutral and you can use them on anything. Even a manly card. The stitched ribbon is also a new product. These will come in our new beautiful In Colors. They won't disappoint you. I stamped the bottom greeting using my Fabulous Phrases stamp set and the only reason I did it like that at the bottom with another piece of cardstock is because I screwed up. Yes, totally messed it up but I recovered it. SCORE!
The one thing you are going to be excited about with our new catalog coming soon… the change in our ink pads. They are incredible. I can't wait to show you the MANY reasons I love them. If you have ever tried an Ancient Page Ink Pad—–> That's what our new pads remind me of. Just pure incredible.
Most importantly Brandon liked his card. Alexis wanted to know how I got his picture in the frame. LOL. Silly kids. I want to thank you for taking the time to wish Brandon a happy birthday. He loved it and he really had a GREAT day.
You are amazing readers and I appreciate you SO SO SO SO much. Thank you.
