And a big Welcome to Mel Pagano - our newest designer. Be sure and visit her blog on the hop and leave her a happy hello comment.
How exciting that the New Occasions Catalogue is now available. This week we kick off the Celebrations with Birthdays!!! - You can never have enough birthday cards. After all the fuss of Christmas January always seems a good time to takes things simply. So todays' cards use a simple design - straight from the Catalogue.
The beauty of the Birthday Celebrations set is that it coordinates with the Ballon Builder Punch- so if you don't yet own a Bigshot you can still create gorgeous cards with this set. This simply uses the punch and some patterned DSP. To step it up you can emboss the base card, or add some DSP which is what I did for card#2. I'm using the current In Colours to create a bunch of samples at the moment, they are so bright and fresh.
This version uses DSP from the Sale-A Bration set Carried Away. , and one of the new metallic and masculine Embellishments.
Starting this week we now have a Facebook page where you can enter your creation and join in the fun. We'd love to see what you are inspired to make from this week's topic. You don't need to have a blog you can creat a project and upload your photo to the group if you are a member. If you would like to join our group we'd love to have you.
