New Idea Book & Catalog Premiere!

The 2006/2007 Idea Book and Catalog is HERE! I am hosting a New Catty Premiere at my home on July 17th beginning at 6:30pm. Here are just two of the projects attendees will be creating....

The project on the left is a Squash or Explosion Box. This one is made from the Petal Patch Double Sided Designer Paper (only available in the Summer Mini until the end of August) and CErtianly Celery card stock. It also uses SU! Square and Circle Punches, Stampin' Write Marker in Brilliant Blue, White Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots. Stamp Set used is Expressive Flexible Phrases. Inks used are Certainly Celery and Brilliant Blue. The strip pattern you see under the middle picture is what the outside of the box looks like when closed up, and with the lid(top of photo) holding it closed. SU! Double-Sided Paper is AWESOME!

The project on the right is a new size/shape of card because SU! has this shape in two sizes of envelopes now! Way Cool! This project uses Lavendar Lace, Elegant Eggplant, Always Artichoke and Whisper White card stocks. It also uses the 1/8" Hand Punch, White Narrow Organdy Ribbon, Dazzling diamonds Glitter, Two-Way Glue Pen & Watercolor Pencils with Blender Pen. Stamp Sets used include: The Wheel Thing (available through end of August), Baskets of Kindness (NEW Host Only Set), Curvy Verses, and Linen Background Stamp. Inks used are Always Artichoke and Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink and Whisper White Craft Ink. Techniques - watercoloring, tearing and glitter.

YOU Did It!

This beautiful covered cigar box was given to me by Sylvia M. Sylvia used the Spring Showers Double-Sided Designer Paper, Apricot Grosgrain Ribbon, Spring Bouquet Flower Punch, Gold Narrow Organdy Ribbon & the Vintage Keepsakes Simply Scrappin' Kit (retired 2006) - as well as some fun non-SU! embellishments .
