I'm finally getting some time to play with some of the new product in the Stampin' Up 2016/17 Catalogue. I am absolutely in love with this Mason Jar set. It's called Jar of Love with a corresponding set of framelits called Everyday Jars. I'm going to try some different colours next time but not bad for a first attempt?

My Auntie Sal moved house on Friday and I'm so excited for her. It's a new start in a new place so I wanted to make a card to welcome her to her new home. Unfortunately, one of my favourite sets didn't make it from the Holiday mini to the new catalogue. However, it won't stop me from using it. I LOVE THIS SET!

I'm going to a good friend's daughter's Graduation party tonight. I decided to come up with a "2016" card and thought the Z-Fold style would be perfect! A link to Dawn's video instructions can be found via this link
I was looking for a good "graduation" sentiment and thought this one fit the bill perfectly. It's such an exciting time for a young person. Good luck to you, Caitlyn!

One of the new stamp sets from the 2016/17 catalogue we were allowed to pre-order is called "Swirly Bird". To be honest, I blew right past it when I saw it .... then I started seeing cards popping up on pinterest using it and it really is a wow!
Here's a card for my cousin, Kate, whose birthday was on the 16th. The swirly circle is cut from a coodinating framelit, along with the leaves and stylised roses.
My daughter's "Mother in Law" (she's not married, but her boyfriend's mum is her #2 mum) had a birthday last weekend and Sarah was invited to her celebration dinner tonight. I made this card for her to take. I used the spring wreath set which thankfully carried over to the new catalogue! If you take a look at the side views, you can see that I actually stamped the wreath three times and layered up the flowers. It took some time, but it was worth it. The dimension is great.
