Stampin' Up! Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop, May Edition, New Catalog Sneak Peek!

Hey there! Hope you've had a lovely Mother's Day! Whether you are a mother or not, we all have, or have had, one to celebrate. I've had a wonderful day with all six of my children, three sons-in-law, and nine grandchildren. We also celebrated with my Mother-in-Law. The guys did the grilling, so the day was relaxing. After lunch we played "Minute to Win It"-type games. There's a video somewhere of me winning a round of "eat a vanilla wafer off your forehead without using your hands", and Mark & I won a round of throwing and catching miniature marshmallows in a paper cup! Fun Times! I think all of the mother's had a good day!

Now, it's time for another Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop! yay! Our theme this month is the New Catalog: A Sneak Peek!


For my project I used new Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack, Happy Birthday Thinlets die, and Colorful Seasons stamps.


 I created a monochromatic card with the new In Color Tranquil Tide and Whisper White.

I created a banner by snipping a 3" x 4 3/4" strip of Tranquil Tide with my Paper Snips and then embossing with the brand spankin' new Oh My Stars  Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It created a great background to mount the wonderful "Happy Birthday", cut with the new Happy Birthday Thinlets Die. Don't you just LOVE this die? I can tell I will be using it again and again!


Inside I stamped the fabulous "just breathe" phrase from Colorful Seasons and the fun beach chair, all with Tranquil Tide.


 Now it's time to hop on along to see Rachel's fun "This Little Piggy" creation! Click the "next blog" link:
