Sneak Peek Blog Hop

Oh I am so excited. The new catalogue is only days away now. So how about I wet your appetite.

Myself and a few other Demonstators in ESAD* thought it would be a great idea to get you excited and give you a sneak peek of some of the wonderful things coming in the new Catalogue.

You probably came here from Cherie's blog. Didn't she do an awesome job. If you are just jumping in now then check down my post further for the list of everyone participating in this hop.

Without further ado, here are my projects.

I used the new Bohemian Borders stamp set to create the background for all my cards. I was having so much fun, I just couldn't stop at one. I was pleasantly surprised at the different looks I could achieve. I am sure if I played for much longer I would of had a desk piled high with samples.

My favourite background I created would have to be the baseball looking one. I loved how the stamp  looks like the stitching on a baseball. How quick and easy would it to be make several of these for some great young players you know.

The other new stamp set I used was I Think You're Great. This was a set which we used for our Make and Takes at the Inspire Create Share event in early May. I love the sayings in it. They are so versatile.

The last new product I used is the Triple Banner Punch. Oh my, was I excited when I saw this for the first time. No more getting the scissors out and cutting the banner ends, then finding out that your eye is a bit wonky and you don't have it centred. Do you know how many banners I have had to remake over  the years! Or banners that ended up shorter on projects than they were meant to there will be no more of that now. Hallelujah !

I hope you are excited about these products as I am. I know that at  the end of this blog hop you will have added to your Wish

So its time to head off for more inspiration now as you hop  on over to see what Lou has created.
