Around the World Occasions Catalogue Blog Hop!



Welcome to our Occasions Catalogue Blog Hop! You may have gotten here from Miriam van Eyden's blog... Thanks for continuing your journey on the hop! I love Miriam's style and her projects were fantastic as always. Instead of back and next buttons, we have included links to all the blogs at the bottom of our posts to make it easy for you to navigate and check out all of our projects. 

I knew I was in trouble as soon as I turned the first few pages of the Occasions Catalogue... There are so many products I knew I would have to have! This was one of the first items on my Must Have list: Balloon Celebration bundle and I wanted to showcase it in my post today.

On both of my cards, I also used items you can get for free during Saleabration! The sentiment on this card is from The Sky's the Limit (available until February 15th), and I thought it worked perfectly with the balloons in this set. Another favourite product from the Occasions Catalogue is the Wink of Stella glitter brush. I added some of the clear Wink of Stella to some of the clouds to add some subtle glimmer.


On this card, I wanted to use some brighter colors and the Perfectly Artistic paper from the Saleabration flyer (available until February 15th). I embossed the clouds with Iridescent Ice embossing powder for a little sparkle. The Sentiment is from Sunburst Sayings (also in the Occasions Catalogue) and I was happy it fit so perfectly in the large balloon.


Thanks so much for joining us on our Occasions Catalogue Blog Hop! I hope you'll continue on to the other blogs on our hop. They all have inspiring projects to share.
