It's about time...

I updated this blog of mine! If anyone is still out there reading, I apologize for the lack of posts... a new schedule and the summer have really thrown me off. Today is the first day of the Holiday Catalogue, and I haven't even shared any of the cards I've made since the new catalogue started at the beginning of June! I have been doing lots of stamping, so I have a lot to share... just need to get the photos uploaded and edited and I'm ready to go.

Since it's the first day the Holiday Catalogue products are available to order, I'm going to share a card we made at my Holiday Sneak Peek on Monday evening. This is an event for my team but all are welcome, and I had 15 people crammed into my Stamping Studio... we were definitely at full capacity! I hope everyone enjoyed the evening even with the cramped quarters and liked the projects we made. I'll share the rest soon!

This card features a lot of products new to the Holiday Catalogue: The Early Espresso C'Ordinations card stock is definitely a favourite of mine (here I embossed it with the new Holiday Frame texture impressions folder, then sanded it to reveal the lighter core). I also used the Ornamental Keepsakes Bundle (stamp set and matching Framelits for 15% off the individual prices) for the ornament. I used Gumball Green and Primrose Pink (both new In Colours) and the Raspberry Ripple Stitched Satin Ribbon to complete the card. It's hard to tell in this picture, but there is a small sentiment tag as well (Tiny Tags & Tag punch) tied on with Linen Thread.

Here's hoping I'll be back soon with another post!
