Occasions Mini Catalog '08

Wow! We have so enjoyed this Occasions Mini Catalog! So many of my friends/customers have gotten some of these sets and made beautiful things with them. Once the mini expires on June 30, some of these sets will never be available again; we won't know if any of them will be in the new Fall/Winter Catalog until it comes out on August 11.

Today I have two cards I received in swaps that are made with Occasions Mini sets to share with you. The first one on the left is made with Live Your Dream and Afternoon Tea Designer Paper. The sentiment is from Stem Sayings. I like how the corner of the Afternoon Tea paper and cardstock is turned up, revealing a bit of the reverse side of the dp, then held in place by a brad from the Silver Hodgepodge Hardware (also in the Occasions Mini). A chocolate taffeta ribbon bow on the bottom of the flower is the finishing accent! Thanks Pam for a great swap!

Connie used Time for You to make this fresh fun summertime card! This set has the bicycle image plus a park bench, an alarm clock and this sentiment! So cute and useful! I've needed an alarm clock stamp; guess I better buy this set too! : )


Colors of So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue and the Cutie Pie Designer Paper come together to make a cheery card! The Twill background is stamped in saffron on saffron cardstock for the background. Isn't it cute how she used the Three for You Punch Box to stamp and punch out the three saffron flowers on the left of the image? They carry out the idea of flowers that are blowing out of the bicycle basket. Great idea and card, Connie!

To my customers: I am putting in an order this weekend so if you want to add something, please contact me soon. You can view the Occasions Mini Catalog here .
Happy Friday, everyone!

Oops, I thought it was Canvas but I've corrected it now. Thanks, Connie! I don't have that stamp so just didn't recognize it! lol!
