Welcome to the August Stylin' Stampin' Blog Hop. I am so excited because we are featuring items from the Holiday Catalog. I hope you are loving all of the holiday ideas or if this is your first stop make sure to hop around to all the blogs and leave comments.
I've decided to share three projects this month one Halloween, one Fall, and one Christmas. I was going to do a Top Three favorite items but then it turned into Top Fifteen and that just seemed a little much so I chose three project for the upcoming holidays and seasons. I love all of the items in this catalog so I used lots of new stuff and I hope you love it just as much as I do.
Here we go, my first project is my Halloween card. I used the Frightening Feline Stamp as my focal image. Isn't that cat adorable? I knew I needed it as soon as I saw the Holiday Catalog. I also used some Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP. I love this paper and you know what is even greater is that it doesn't have to be just for Halloween.
Stamps: Frightening Feline
Paper: Tangerine Tango, Basic Black, and Whisper White, and Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Big Shot, Spider Web Folder, Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon, 3" Circle, 3.5" Circle
For my Fall project I created a Fall Scrapbook page, which I also used as a swap at Convention. Now fall is my favorite season and I wish SoCal had a true Fall but I will settle for cooler weather, leaves, pumpkins, and Thanksgiving.
I used some new DSP from the Annual Catalog Comfort Cafe, a new stamp set from the Holiday Catalog called Wonderfall, and a coordinating Bigz die Autumn Accents.
Stamp Set: Wonderfall
Paper: Cajun Craze, Pool Party, Midnight Muse, Soft Suede, Summer Starfruit, Very Vanilla, and Comfort Cafe DSP
Ink:Soft Suede, Pool Party, Summer Starfruit
Other: Big Shot, Autumn Accents Bigz Die, Corner Rounder Punch, Typeset Alphabet Bigz Dies, Tasteful Trim Die
Last but not least I created a Christmas Card. It is never to early to start on these cards. In the Holiday Catalog this year they are offering product bundles at a discount, now who doesn't love to save a little money? Does it still count as savings if I just used the money to buy more from the Holiday Catalog? Hmm....
Anyway I used the Scentsational Season Bundle which includes the Scentsational Season Stamp set and the Holiday Collection Framelit dies. Whenever I don't have to cut out the shapes by hand that is always a plus in my book. I also used Festival of Prints DSP stack, this 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" stack of dsp is packed with beautiful paper.
Stamps: Scentsational Season
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Festival of Prints DSP
