Freaking Excited!

Hi stampers!  The new catalog is just a few weeks away and I've been able to play with a few of my pre order goodies as of late!  And even more exciting is that you'll get to see so much more since it's time for the Control Freaks Blog Hop!

I'm sandwiched in between Deb and Debbie…hehe.  If you didn't come from Deb's blog and her amazing projects, make sure you keep clicking and make your around or click the link and go backwards if that's your style.  My mom is crazy like that and reads the newspaper back to front, lol!

Now onto what I have to share with you!

I really like the look of "chalkboard" with the new boho stuff!  The colors are so bright yet rich!  The new set makes it really easy to get the chalkboard look too, with just some white craft ink and black card stock!  I've used this layout a lot.  It helps to have some favorites to fall back on when you're not feeling super creative which has been me lately.

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Friendly wishes
Paper:  Whisper white, rich razzleberry
Ink:  White craft
Accessories: Linen thread, chalk talk framelits, bohemian washi tape

My other project is tiny and cute :-)  I LOVE the new Ronald McDonald set!  I'm not always a fan of the set which kind of makes me sad since it's a great cause but this one is ADORABLE!  This will be the perfect card for a little birthday gift or even on a gift bag!  The tree is the new in colors mint macaron and tip top taupe…how fun is that to say?  LOL!  Oh and the bird is delightful dijon AND you can punch all of that out with the new tree builder punch! SO FUN!!!!!

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Sprinkles of life
Paper:  Whisper white, crumb cake, tip top taupe, delightful dijon, mint macaron
Ink:  Blushing bride, pool party, tip top taupe, delightful dijon, mint macaron
Accessories:  Tree builder punch

Now, if you're not like my mom and want to hop forward click on over to Debbie's blog and see her awesome projects!

Thanks for joining us and happy stamping!

Fab Friday 64

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  Not only is it time for another challenge over at Fab Friday but I have  pre-order goodies from the upcoming Stampin' Up catalog!  This week we have a sketch for you!

I wasn't initially going to get either one of these stamp sets but then I decided I kind of liked them after seeing some samples from SU.  Sadly, this card is all I have really made so far as my order came really late.  Like after the baby went to sleep which of course set off the doggy alarm when the UPS guy rang the bell.  UGH!  Luckily he must be used to her because he stayed asleep :-)  And then I didn't really want to stamp but just look through the catalog since it was so late :-)

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Bohemian Borders, friendly wishes
Paper:  Whisper white, blackberry bliss, delightful dijon, bohemian DSP
Ink:  Rich razzleberry, bermuda bay, blackberry bliss, delightful dijon
Accessories:  Brights buttons, linen thread

I love that the borders are photopolymer as it makes it easy to line them up!  The bohemian DSP is really pretty.  I should have used very vanilla as it's in the paper but I was too excited and on a ticking clock (AKA Ian's nap) so I wasn't thinking.  I had to pick patterns that didn't clash with the white :-)  I hate when I do that!  And I LOVE the dijon color.  It's like more mustard which I loved and will great for fall.  It pairs SO well with blackberry bliss too!

Make sure to check out all the inspiration and play along!

Happy stamping!
