Scribbles and swirls...

Yesterday the new 2016-2017 Stampin Up! catalog went live and it is fabulous!!! You can check out the link HERE for the pdf version (might take a minute or two to upload) or if you're like me and need that hard copy to check off all the lovely new goodies you MUST have, let me know and I can get you a hard copy ASAP!

There are so many fantastic new items you will want to check it out for yourself, but here are a couple of projects I have done using some of the gorgeous new items...

This first card I did for a newly graduated gal that lives down the street from me. It is such an exciting time to realize that your high school journeys are over but new adventures are ahead! I wanted to make something that really showed my excitement for her.

The moment I saw the Swirly Scribbles thinlits dies, I knew I had to have them!  And I must say they are pretty awesome!

I apologize in advance because a couple of the elements on this card are no longer available, but I really love how the scribbles die looked on this card!

Another of my fave items is the Wink of Stella glitter brushes! They are super easy to use and I love flicking them across my projects to give that glittery splatter effect.

This next project I made was inspired by a project I pinned on Pinterest. You can check out the original project HERE. I just loved the cute little mini magazine holder and the soft colors!

Using this tutorial, I was able to easily make the mini holder.

 To make the cards I used one of the new hostess stamp sets, Gift of Love, and Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set. The ink is Pear Pizzazz and Pool Party

To create the little flower on the outside of the holder, I used the little flower die from the Swirly Scribbles thinlits dies and whisper white cardstock. I then inked them using the Pear Pizzazz ink and  a sponge.

Be sure to check out the new catalog and let me know if there is items that you can't live without! Or you can shop my online store HERE!
