Do you have the new Summer Mini catalog? It’s full of gorgeous new stamps, and I think it has a nice focus on masculine and travel themed images. We get a little carried away creating things for our feminine selves, don’t you think?
Stampin’ Up! didn’t forget about the Girly stuff though. One of my favorite new products – and there are a few – are the two new Triple Layer Punches. I snapped up the Blossom Boquet in my demonstrator pre-order last month, and now I’m struggling with whether or not I NEED the Doily. Ha! Silly Maui Stamper. Who doesn’t need another punch? Go ahead, raise your hand.
I’m not going to go into detail on these – but they’re all done with the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch. The stems are from the XL Two Step Bird – and no doubt about it, you NEED that one!! I just did like the name said and layered everything together, then added some Crystal Effects in the little windows – you can see it best in the one on the far right.
One thing I do have to add – that Soft Suede Polka Dot ribbon is in the Clearance Rack right now for $3.99. Need I say more?
Here’s what I put inside – and don’t laugh, ok?
This is one of those sad, sad stories about projects that aren’t completed on a timely basis. This is Avon hand cream – and luxurious cream it is – yes, I confess – in Christmas packaging. Just didn’t get to it! Very embarassing, I know. Better late than never, and I certainly didn’t want to wait until Christmas 2011!
