So it's been quite some time since I have been blogging... Sometimes life gets extra busy and you just need to cut something out. But it is a new year and I have a new resolve to try and keep it going! Stampin' Up released the new Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Catalog today and apparently it was so popular with everyone the site crashed!!! It was down for quite some time but now is back up and running.
I always get so excited for the start of a new catalog and this one is no exception. While I love most of the catalog, no big surprise there, I think I'm most excited over the masculine sets they have. I often find that making cards for men is much harder than making cards for women but with the sets in the new Occasions Catalog you will come up with plenty of ideas.
In the sample below I borrowed a technique from Lyssa Griffin Zwolanek. Instead of going with the browns, I started with a piece of Smokey Slate and used more Smokey Slate ink along with Basic Gray. I just loved how it came out but if you are planning on trying the technique you want to allow enough time for the cardstock to dry. It's hard to tell in the pictures, but the new Hexagon Embossing Folder is fabulous!!!
Hope you enjoy looking at the new products!
