Ink Stamp Share New Year's Eve Blog Hop

Hi everyone, 
Welcome to my blog today. Thanks so much for popping in to see me. And welcome too to the last Ink Stamp Share Monthly Blog Hop of 2020. Our theme for today is "Something New" - from either the new Spring mini catalogue or the new Saleabration brochure - or both. 

Sadly although I received my pre-order a couple of weeks ago, I haven't really found much time as yet to have a play. However, I did manage to make some little gift tags to send out with copies of the catalogue. (Apologies if you caught Gez and I over in our Facebook group doing live crafting a couple of weeks ago, as you will have already had a little peek of these).

I used four new products to make my tags - some new DSP (patterned paper) - more about that below, a new stamp set called Oval Occasions along with a matching punch (called the Double Oval punch), and some new Gorgeous Grape Sheer ribbon. I have of course used a few things from the Annual Catalogue too - Whisper White card stock, the Scallop Tag Topper punch. Oh and I've also used a bit of retired ribbon from my stash!

As I said these tags were sent out with copies of the new catalogue. I sent these out to anyone who had shopped with me during the past 6 months plus anyone else who had requested one. I had a lot to send!

I still have a few more catalogues ready to send out so just let me know if you'd like me to add your name on one of them.

And if you'd like to see how I made my tags you can watch my video tutorial by CLICKING HERE or on the image below.

Most of the products I have used for this project will be available to buy from January 5th when the new mini catalogue goes live. I'm not able to link them below as they are not yet "live". One exception is the pack of patterned papers I have used. These are from the 6" x 6" Colour Family stacks which will actually not be available until the next Annual Catalogue in June. But they will be available FREE to anyone joining Stampin' Up! during the course of Saleabration. Contact me for more details. As demos, we were allowed to include these in our preorders - another perk of joining up!

Thanks so much for popping in to see me today. Please carry on hopping around the blog hop - so many fabulous projects and new products to inspire you. Next up is Dana Sullivan 

And here is the complete blog roll, in case anyone gets lost!
