Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop: Introducing the 2014-2015 Annual Catalogue
Another month another Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop! This month we're all featuring the new 2014-2015 Annual Catalogue, which I am totally in love with. If you're new to my blog you've probably come over from Heidi blog, and welcome! For those that are new to blog hops, you can go forward and backward using the water cooler buttons at the bottom of this post to check out the lovely ladies around the world that have put up posts featuring some old and some new Stampin' Up! products and projects.
My project is one project with many many cards. I've been making these "One Sheet Wonder" cards from a pattern of my own invention for a couple of years now and I always love how they turn out. The basic premix is you take a sheet of 12x12 Designer Series Paper and cut it up into pieces to make 20 cards. I will be sharing my pattern soon, so check back, but for now I just wanted to share some of the cards I made using the new Maritime DSP, Sea Street and Something to Say stamp sets. I embellished them with rhinestones (which I coloured with Blendabilities markers), Mini Brads, Candy Dot Brad Bases, Coastal Cabana thick bakers twine and regular white bakers twine. There's always a few scraps of paper sitting around on my desk, so I added those to give a little extra flair to some of my cards. Here's some of the cards I made, you'll have to come back to see the rest later!
I couldn't have done this project without some of the biggest supporting players on my craft table, the Stampin' Trimmer (with rotary attachment and blades), the Simply Scored board and tool, Snail tape runner, and Stampin' Dimensionals.
Any of the products mentioned in my blog today are available for purchase from any Stampin' Up! demonstrator. Feel free to come back to see more of the cards from this set and get the pattern. In the mean time, click forward and back to hop along the crafting trail to check out other peoples' projects!
